Recently we reported that James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was testing five actors for the lead. Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess, Lee Pace and Eddie Redmayne were all up for the role of Peter Quill, a half-human, half-alien who brings the Guardians together. It now looks like the race is down to two people: Jim Sturgess and new contender Zachary Levi.
Though they're still working on script, and should start filming shortly - even after releasing a teaser this summer - we only have a small inkling of what's in store for us when 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' hits theaters next year. But now the picture has a release date, and it means only one thing: Will Ferrell is gunning for an Oscar.
Samuel L. Jackson has been the anchor for Marvel's movies ever since he appeared in the end credit Easter Egg in the first 'Iron Man.' But now that the universe is established, now that 'The Avengers' is one of the biggest hits of all time, will Jackson continue his trend of showing up for a scene or two in the next couple Marvel movies? It looks like the answer is no.
One of the conspiracy theories going around in the wake of 'Star Wars - Episode 7' news was that Brad Bird was secretly working on it already and that the Damon Lindeloff-penned script for '1952' was actually the new 'Star Wars.' This seems untrue at this point, and unless this is the greatest hoax of all time, it seems all the more unlikely as George Clooney is now in talks to play the lead in '1952.'
In one of the most inspired bits of casting in recent years, Dwayne Johnson has been tapped to play Hercules, also known as the strongest man to ever live, in the imaginatively titled film 'Hercules.' Unfortunately, Brett Ratner is set to direct.
It's easy to poke fun at George Lucas. He directed the prequel trilogy after all, and refuses to acknowledge the original cuts of the first three 'Star Wars' movies. But when Lucas does good, that's no joke. And today word broke that Lucas will be giving the majority of the money he got for selling Lucasfilm to educational philanthropy.
Michael Bay played footsies for a while with doing more 'Transformers' movies, but has signed up for a fourth film, because... well, money. Lots and lots of it. Bay earned $80 Million from the first film (which is the lowest grossing film of the franchise), and gets 8% of the merchandising money, so it's safe to assume that he makes over $100 Million a sequel. But it looks like he's bringing in a new lead.
We've been hearing about David Fincher tackling '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' for a couple of years now, and it it's already gone through a number of writers, including Andrew Kevin Walker, Scott Z. Burns, and is currently being worked on by Steve Zaillian. But it looks like Disney getting ready to move forward as they've placed a hold on the director for the next three months, and it sounds like they're courting Brad Pitt to play the lead.
'The Man with the Iron Fists' has been pummeling us with character-based teasers, and today we get two more. One for Russell Crowe's character Jack Knife, and one for David Bautista's character Brass Body. Watching both promos in quick succession will get co-writer/director/star RZA's music stuck in your head.
