The indie drama Gimme Shelter will go into production at the end of this month in Connecticut, and it has Brendan Fraser set to star, with Vanessa Hudgens now likely appearing as well. Ron Krauss wrote and will direct; the film follows a pregnant homeless girl (Hudgens’ role) who “flees her abusive mother and seeks out her biological father. He first takes her in but then throws her out when she refuses to abort her child.”

The dad is Brendan Fraser, and it sounds like the sort of not so massively sympathetic role that he doesn’t often play. So that could be interesting. As a side note, I understand why the film is titled as it is, but at this point it is really time to leave certain Rolling Stones songs alone, and ‘Gimme Shelter’ is one of them. [THR]

After the break, Seth MacFarlane’s Ted gets one more, and Anthony Mackie might be in line for a couple big films. Read More »
