Tom Hardy is taking over the mantle of Mad Max from Mel Gibson (good timing) and while we don’t know too much about what series creator George Miller has planned for Max’s fourth outing, Mad Max: Fury Road, we now know more than we did a few hours ago. Riley Keough (aka the granddaughter of Elvis Presley , who made her feature debut in The Runaways) has joined the cast, and her role sheds a very tiny bit of light on the plot that might ensue.

The film adaptation of I Am Number Four, the first book in a sci-fi novel series co-authored by James Frey, became a big deal pretty fast. First it was because the film was rumored to be set up as a project for Michael Bay to produce and, possibly, direct.
Then DJ Caruso (Eagle Eye, Disturbia) was tapped to direct, with Bay and Steven Spielberg producing. Actors have steadily been added to the film, and now we’ve got one more: Dianna Agron, who has had insane exposure in the last year thanks to her role on Glee. Read More »
Teresa Palmer has become the newest go-to good looking actress for geek film properties. The Australian actress had a small role in The Grudge 2, but had her big break in the Adam Sandler family comedy Bedtime Stories. She’s one of the leads in Disney’s upcoming Jerry Bruckheimer-produced fantasy adventure The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and is in preproduction on Mad Max: Fury Road. And lets not forget, she was attached to star in the George Miller-directed Justice League of America movie, which has since been abandoned.
Her latest gig is a science fiction adaptation: the Dreamworks’ Michael Bay/Steven Spielberg-produced D.J. Caruso-directed teen sci-fi alien adaptation I Am Number Four.

Walt Disney Pictures has released a new international movie trailer for Jon Turteltaub‘s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. The trailer is basically a variation on the trailer released late last year in the states, but includes a bit more dialogue, action and a better look at Alfred Molina as the film’s villain Maxim. Shockingly, I’ve been hearing nothing but good things about this film from my insiders who are in the know.
So if you’re done watching that awesome Scott Pilgrim trailer again (really, we know you’re excited but it’s quickly becoming a problem), head on after the jump. As always, please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Posted on Thursday, January 28th, 2010 by Russ Fischer
Just over a week ago word leaked out that Teresa Palmer might be in George Miller‘s upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road. That wasn’t a huge surprise, as Miller had cast Palmer as Talia Ghul in his aborted Justice League movie. Now we’ve got confirmation that Palmer is in fact part of the Mad Max cast, along with another rumored actor, Nicholas Hoult. (Nick Hoult!) Read More »
