It seems like Derek Cianfrance‘s The Place Beyond the Pines gets more intriguing with each new casting announcement, and the latest addition is no exception. Ray Liotta has just signed on for Cianfrance’s “Deer Hunter meets The Godfather” crime drama, joining Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Greta Gerwig and Ben Mendelsohn. Liotta will be playing a corrupt police officer.

The Place Beyond the Pines centers around a pro motorcycle rider-turned-bank robber (Gosling) and a cop (Cooper) who cross paths, setting off a multi-generational feud. Mendes will be Gosling’s love interest, while Gerwig is considering the role of Cooper’s wife. Mendelsohn is in negotiations to play a mechanic who brings Gosling’s charcter into the world of bank robbery. Shooting for the film is set to begin late next month in Schenectady, NY. [Variety]

After the jump, Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth picks a new project, while Rumer Willis and Dominic Purcell get spooked.

Sorority Row Movie Trailer


Hey look, it’s another horror film for the Ed Hardy and Axe Body Spray set. The first trailer for Sorority Row, the remake of 1981’s The House on Sorority Row starring Carrie Fisher and Rumer “Jaws of Life” Willis, is ready for your hungry eyes. It’s probably not worth a quibble, but why remake this film if the fun premise of the original is being ditched: Sorority girls kill their elderly “house mother” accidentally, still reluctantly throw a bitchin’ party as scheduled, and the old bag comes back to cane them all to death? As pathetically seen here, Rumer & Co. have one of their girls play dead and then she gets hilariously tummy-stabbed IRL. Cut out the title’s “House” and cue a generic, vengeful murderer-in-hooded-poncho straight out of Like, I Know What You Did Last Summer. How much do you think this will open with at the box office? Check out the trailer after the jump.
