It’s a shame that Lindsay Lohan‘s name is only linked of late to stunt casting in roles based on the lives of abused or damaged women. She was set to play Linda Lovelace for some time, and is now in talks to play the murdered actress Sharon Tate, who was one of the victims of the Manson Family. She’d be in a film about Charles Manson called Eyes of a Dreamer, which photographer Tyler Shields plans to make this summer.
The kicker is that, in keeping with the current mandate that there can never be only one film in development about a specific subject, this is just one of three Manson projects in development. Read More »

A few years back when George Miller was developing a Justice League film he cast it with actors that had no ties to other DC comics movies. Granted, there were fewer DC movies then, but that Justice League wouldn’t have featured Brandon Routh as Superman or Christian Bale as Batman. If it had been made, Superman would have been played by D.J. Cotrona while Armie Hammer would have been Batman.
We’ve been hearing now that new WB president Jeff Robinov wants to have a Justice League film in theaters for 2013, and with the scarce information available we’ve assumed that the George Miller approach had been abandoned in favor of Marvel’s development path for The Avengers. In other words, we thought that Henry Cavill would be Superman, Ryan Reynolds would be Green Lantern, and so forth. But now Superman director Zack Snyder says that isn’t the case. Read More »

Rumors have been circulating for a while now about which actress would win the role of Lois Lane in Zack Snyder‘s Superman. Back in February, reports named Kristen Stewart, Rachel McAdams, Jessica Biel, Dianna Agron, Malin Akerman, Olivia Wilde, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and either Kristen Bell or Lake Bell as being among the actresses up for the part — yes, it was one of those roles, where it seems like every young actress is rumored at one point or other.
The part has finally been cast, and it’s a name that I don’t think has come up much before: three-time Academy Award nominee Amy Adams. Read more after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Zack Snyder has been doing press all week for Sucker Punch, and little bits of conversation about Superman: Man of Steel have been appearing all over the place. None of it is anything substantial, but I think ever clue about how the filmmaker might approach the comic book movie is interesting at this point. He also spoke briefly about the announced 300 prequel Xerxes, which he is unsure if he’ll have the time to actually direct himself. Full details after the jump.
