Dermot Mulroney‘s been in a variety of films over the years, but it’s probably fair to say that most people think of him primarily as a romcom leading man. His best known works include The Wedding Date and My Best Friend’s Wedding, and he was even cast as the generically handsome star of Burn After Reading‘s film-within-a-film, Coming Up Daisy.

It seems appropriate, then, that his first foray into directing would be with yet another fluffy romantic comedy: IFC Films’ unimaginatively titled Love Wedding Marriage, starring Mandy Moore and an occasionally shirtless Kellan Lutz as a pair of newlyweds. Watch the trailer after the jump.

The animated series Tron: Uprising voice cast includes Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry, Lance Henriksen and Tron himself Bruce Boxleitner. It is directed by Charlie Bean, Joseph Kosinski and Sean Bailey, and is written by Tron: Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.

Back in the late ’90s, when Mandy Moore first appeared on the pop music scene, I would’ve never predicted she’d still be an active famous person in the early 2010s. Of course, I also dismissed Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, and everyone in ‘NSYNC as one-hit wonders destined to fade into obscurity by about 2001, so that shows what I know.

And now, here I am in 2011 reporting that Moore has signed on for Buried writer Chris Sparling‘s directorial debut, a ghost story titled Falling Slowly. She will be starring opposite Rodrigo Santoro, a.k.a. Paulo from Lost, the homoerotic villain from 300, and Laura Linney’s smoldering love interest from Love, Actually. More details after the jump.

Disney’s next animated film is Tangled, which retells the classic Rapunzel story with a distinctly Pirates of the Caribbean, ‘maybe boys will see this’ vibe. We’ve seen a couple of teasers, some clips and plenty of art from the film. Now there’s a full trailer, which gives a much better idea of what the film might actually be like. Read More »

Tangled Teaser Trailer #2

Tangled

Walt Disney Animation Studios has released a new teaser trailer for their 50th full-length animated feature Tangled.

Directed by Byron Howard & Nathan Greno (the co-director and head of story on Bolt respectively), this new telling of the classic fairy tale Rapunzel (the original title of the film), will transport audiences “to a stunning CG fantasy world complete with the iconic tower, an evil witch, a gallant hero and, of course, the mysterious girl with the long golden tresses. Expect adventure, heart, humor, and hair, lots of hair.” The lead heroine is voiced by Mandy Moore while Chuck‘s Zachary Levi will play a “dashing bandit” named Flynn Ryder who hits the road with the “rebellious, teenage hair apparent.”

I’m definitely digging the watercolor/storybook-look they are employing with this new film. And the trailer is definitely playing up the prince’s character, likely in an effort to appeal to more boys. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

The Steve Carell / Ryan Gosling comedy that may or may not be called Crazy, Stupid Love is quickly adding actors. I Love You, Philip Morris directors John Requa and Glen Ficarra have already nabbed Emma Stone and Julianne Moore, and now they’re bringing in ex-figure skater Analeigh Tipton. She’s been part of America’s Next Top Model and will be seen in The Green Hornet later this year.

Film has Carell and Moore as a married couple who start divorce proceedings when she confesses an affair. Depressed, Carell meets Gosling’s character, who offers to help him get back in the game with women. Meanwhile, Carell’s son is in love with his babysitter (Tipton), who has a thing for Carell. Meanwhile, Gosling has struck out with Emma Stone, who eventually factors back into the story. [Variety]

After the break, Dermot Mulroney assembles a cast for his directorial debut, and Tom Arnold takes a spot on Peter Berg’s Battleship. Read More »

will-ferrell-2

Not a lot of cast announcements this week, as Sundance has a great deal of Hollywood on hold. But there’s one big story and a handful of small ones to report. The big one is that Will Ferrell is reportedly going to star in a remake of I Do: How to Get Married and Stay Single. That’s a French film from 2006, and in this version Ferrell would play “a 40-something bachelor whose seven sisters and mom try to force him to get married, prompting him to ask a friend’s sister to leave him at the altar so that everyone will leave him alone.” No writer or director is yet on board.

After the break, new projects for Jay Mohr, Mandy Moore and Kellan Lutz. Read More »
