Here’s a big and very likely wholly unsubstantiated casting rumor to start the day: One of the UK tabloids is saying that Cillian Murphy is Danny Boyle‘s top choice to play Aron Ralston, the mountain climber at the center of his next film 127 Hours. That ‘news’ comes by way of News of the World, and is likely a scoop the paper got when they lined up photos of people who’d starred in previous Boyle films and had a blind guy throw darts. We’re basically reporting this now as a means of saying ‘don’t buy it for a second’.

After the break, new stuff for Anna Faris and a reminder that the crazy remake of Bonnie and Clyde didn’t die quietly over the summer. Read More »

I have nothing against Hilary Duff. I’m sure she is a nice girl. I can’t speak towards her acting abilities, because the few films on her acting resume that I have seen, I conveniently don’t remember  (or have tried to forget about). She’s certainly pleasant to look at, but being good to look at isn’t enough to earn you a lead role in a remake to one of the greatest films of all time.

Variety has confirmed that Duff will play Bonnie in Tonya S Holly‘s The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, which is technically not a remake of the 1967 classic film Bonnie and Clyde which starred Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. Holly supposedly penned a new adaptation on the life and times of the famous gangster duo.

But don’t worry, the supporting cast will surely make up for Duff, right? — Air Bud 3 star Kevin Zegers will play Clyde. Oh wait, And it gets worse… Holly’s 2006 debut film When I Find the Ocean is currently ranked at a 3.6 by Internet Movie Database users, which more than qualifies her to remake a film with an 8.1 rating (ranked #214 of all time). Who in Hollywood actually greenlights this shit? Is making something that is both good and original that hard?

Wait, has anyone purchased Mystery Team yet?
