Above is your first look at what might be one of the weirdest movies of the year. Doesn’t look so strange, does it? But this is the first shot from The Lobster, by Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Alps). That should tell you something right off. And we’re guessing that in the film, we’ll see one of these three guys, Colin Farrell, Ben Whishaw, and John C. Reilly, turned into an animal. How? Read more below. Read More »
Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly might never be Step Brothers again, but they could be Border Guards. Deadline reports the two actors are aiming to team up on the new comedy, possibly once again with director Adam McKay.

The director of Dogtooth and Alps is now shooting his new film, but this one is a bit different than the two art-house offerings that made Yorgos Lanthimos a festival favorite. The new film is The Lobster, which is described in brief as a “dystopian love story.” It will be the director’s first English-language film. The cast is something else indeed: John C. Reilly has just signed on to The Lobster, along with Ashley Jensen (Ugly Betty), Michael Smiley (The World’s End), and Jessica Barden (Far From the Madding Crowd). Read More »

In contrast to the all-star lineup of The Avengers, the heroes and villains that populate Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy are to be played by a more diverse collection of actors. Not all of them are household names. It’s a good thing, then, that director James Gunn has some excellent talent to help introduce these oddball characters to the wider audience.
Among his top-shelf lineup is John C. Reilly, who’s just been confirmed after being rumored last month. There’s been a bit of confusion recently over whom he might be playing in the intergalactic saga, but we’ve now learned that the initial reports were correct — he’ll star as Rhomann Dey, essentially the Agent Coulson of the Guardians universe. Hit the jump to learn more about him.

What Clark Gregg is to The Avengers, John C. Reilly could soon be to the Guardians of the Galaxy. HitFix is reporting the Oscar-nominated actor known for roles in Boogie Nights, Chicago and Step Brothers has been offered the role of Rhomann Dey in James Gunn‘s 2014 cosmic Marvel team-up movie. The role is basically a human go-between for the Guardians (Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana and more to be announced) and S.H.I.E.L.D. back on Earth. Plus, if you know the comics, he might have a little superhero in his future too. Read More »
