After the long Fourth of July weekend we don’t have a lot of news on the casting front, but there are a few good stories to share, and they’re all in a similar vein. Today, the theme is crime pictures. After the break you’ll find info on the following:
- John Malkovich is taking the lead in Siberian Education, which chronicles the culture of crime in a small community near the Ukraine.
- Parker, the new screen version of Richard Stark’s classic crime character, gets two supporting players.
- And French film The Lookout casts Daniel Auteuil as a cop out to catch a sharpshooter who ruined a well-laid police plan. Read More »

With the approaching release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, images from the film are starting to get out into the wild. It seems like there are certain requirements for any Transformers stills that don’t feature robots: they’ve got to have explosions, Shia LaBeouf running, or characters appearing to cautiously move through a location. And now we’ve got an image to cover each one of those bases for the third film. Check ‘em out after the break. And, sorry, no robots. Read More »

In the past six months, we’ve seen several films attempt to successfully execute the person-falls-in-love-with-someone-who-turns-out-to-be-a-spy formula, with mixed results. Robert Schwentke’s Red (based on the Warren Ellis graphic novel of the same name) is the latest entry, boasting an all-star cast headed by Bruce Willis.
So does Red have anything new to add? Hit the jump for a few of my thoughts and leave your own in the comments below. As usual, spoilers follow after the break.

Briefly: Robert Schwentke‘s movie Red is evidently testing well, and I’ve heard great things about it from a few people who’ve seen big chunks of the movie. (And it’s doing well enough that Schwentke is now up for gigs like Wolverine 2.)
But the film isn’t quite done, and the director is down in Louisiana this weekend with Bruce Willis and John Malkovich to shoot a new scene for the film. THR says this isn’t a reshoot in the usual sense. Rather, it is an addition to the movie: a one-minute gag that will (presumably) be an after-credits tag.
I know there is some resistance to the film based in part on the fact that it seems to seriously depart from the comic upon which it is based. But look at the cast: Willis, Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker, Julian McMahon, Richard Dreyfuss, Ernest Borgnine and Brian Cox. That’s a hell of a lineup, and I can’t wait to see them romping through what looks like a sort of action farce.
I know there’s resistance to Red based on the fact that the film looks quite a bit different from the Warren Ellis comics upon which it is based. I haven’t read the comic, so can only approach the film based on what I see — and I really enjoy the stuff we’ve been shown so far. There’s one trailer already, and a second premiered today in conjunction with the film’s appearance at the San Diego Comic Con. Read More »

Eventually, AMC will release something for The Walking Dead that I think doesn’t look great, but it hasn’t happened yet. There’s a good piece of art to promote the show’s debut at Comic Con, which you can see in part above, from IGN.
