Today has seen major developments for the TV version of the graphic novel Locke & Key. Earlier director Mark Romanek was revealed to be in talks to helm the pilot episode of the Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci-produced adaptation of Joe Hill‘s work. Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) serves as showrunner and pilot scriptwriter.
Now Miranda Otto has been tapped as one of the leads. She’ll play Nina Locke, who with her three children tries to rebuild a life in Lovecraft, MA. Keyhouse, their family home, is riddled with secrets and filled with keys that are being sought by a hate-filled creature. [Deadline]

A couple months back, we got a sneak preview of Robert Rodriguez’s Machete thanks to an a special “illegal” movie trailer released online for Cinco De Mayo. The real movie trailer was attached to the Rober Rodriguez-produced Predators (watch it now). At Comic-Con, Rodriguez released a new Red Band movie trailer. Watch the trailer now below.

We’ve seen no shortage of images from Machete, but the one member of the sprawling cast that has been noticably absent is Lindsay Lohan. The actress was one of the surprises in the cast list when initially revealed, and the her absence from the trailer was a talking point thanks to Lohan’s legal adventures, which were (un)fortunately timed with the trailer’s release.
But now there’s a photo of Lohan in costume and it’s looks just about how I always imagined the Blues Brothers’ fantasies about their old headmistress might look. If they had such things. Which, of course, being degenerates, they did. Check it in full after the break. Read More »
A couple months back, we got a sneak preview of Robert Rodriguez’s Machete thanks to an a special “illegal” movie trailer released online for Cinco De Mayo. The real movie trailer is attached to the Rober Rodriguez-produced Predators, which hits theaters this weekend. But you don’t have to head to your local multiplex to see the new trailer, as it is now online and embedded after the jump.
I actually prefer the original Grindhouse faux trailer to the real full length trailer. Which ius strange since the real trailer features a bunch of big stars and a much bigger budget (estimated at $20 million). I think it might be that I just prefer the retro scratch-filled version. That said, the movie still looks like a bad-ass b-movie with an interesting cast.Watch the trailer now below.

Robert Rodriguez has released a special “illegal” movie trailer for Machete. Yes, that’s right — the feature length adaptation of the fake trailer created for Grindhouse, now has a real movie trailer. The trailer features a special “Cinco De Mayo message for ARIZONA”, a political story which has been making headlines recently, but is actually a big part of this film which was shot a year ago.

Last night there were rumors that Lindsay Lohan might be playing ’70s porn star icon Linda Lovelace in a biopic called Inferno. She’d be taking the role that was planned for Anna Faris a couple years ago. But the film had financing problems and Faris decided (probably correctly) that starring as a porn star in a dark, financially struggling film might not be for her. Now the film’s producer has confirmed that Lohan is on board and the film will be looking for financing at Cannes.

The Steve Carell / Ryan Gosling comedy that used to be called Crazy, Stupid Love still doesn’t have a new title, but it continues to add actors.
Marisa Tomei and Josh Groban are now in the John Requa and Glenn Ficarra-directed film alongside Emma Stone, Analeigh Tipton and Kevin Bacon. As we’ve said before, the film follows Carell as “a father whose life unravels as he deals with spousal problems and tries to manage his relationship with his children.” [Variety]
After the break, one more film for Clive Owen and one less for Lindsay Lohan. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Back in January, 20th Century Fox bought distribution rights to Machete, the film from Robert Rodriguez that expands his jokey Grindhouse trailer into a feature. Now the picture has a release date: September 3, aka Labor Day Weekend. I’m not sure if that’s a good date or not for the film — traditionally the last hurrah of summer, a lot of families make their last getaway on the long weekend.
But for a film like Machete, which is really a niche film that needs to find a broad audience, it could work. The cast could attract people who aren’t pre-sold by the idea of an action/exploitation film that follows Danny Trejo as a badass Mexican out to mess with The Man. Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and Lindsay Lohan are all appearing; that’s a weird lineup, if nothing else. [Deadline]
