The news just keeps getting better for Sex and the City fans.
According to Variety, Chris Noth, aka Mr. Big, has indeed signed on to reprise his role for the Sex and the City movie!! Given, it's hard to imagine they would have moved forward with the project without him, but still, it sure is nice to have it confirmed.
As we reported last month, Anne Hathaway has signed onto Jonathan Demme's ensemble piece, Dancing With Shiva. Today's Variety says the actress will be joining Bill Irwin (Lady in the Water, The Laramie Project), Anna Deavere Smith (The West Wing, Rent) and Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment, Forget Paris) in the comedy, which was written by Jenny Lumet. Filming begins next month in Connecticut.
Three more have signed on for the Timothy Linh Bui Christmas indie, Powder Blue, says The Hollywood Reporter. Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing, Ghost), Kris Kristofferson (Blade, The Wendell Baker Story), and Eddie Redmayne (The Good Shepherd) have joined the cast. Swayze will play a sleazy strip club owner, Redmayne will play a mortician who falls in love with a stripper who works there (Jessica Biel), and Kristofferson will play a corporate crime organization head. Could be quite interesting...
And finally, Warner Independent has plans to do a noir-style remake of the 1973 Bruce Lee martial arts classic, Enter the Dragon. According to Variety, the remake, which will be called Awaken the Dragon, will be written by producer Kurt Sutter (The Shield). Sutter will also be making his feature directing debut on the project.
