Robocop has been reassigned from Detroit to Starfleet.
Dealine reports that actor Peter Weller (Robocop, Dexter) has been cast in Paramount Pictures' Star Trek 2, the upcoming sequel to their highly-successful 2009 reboot of the Star Trek franchise. Weller is the third new actor hired to join Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the crew in an unknown role. Director J.J. Abrams recently confirmed interest in having Benicio del Toro (Traffic) join the cast in a role that reportedly is villain, but won't be Khan. Alice Eve has also been cast in a "lead role", but that role is again unspecified.
Production is set to begin early next year with a script by screenwriters Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof. Star Trek 2 is scheduled to arrive in 3-D on May 17, 2013. a previously unspecified role revealed >> Posted 12.05.11 by Ryan
After two movies that saw James Bond work without most of his usual supporting cast of characters, Skyfall, the next James Bond movie, is re-introducing many of those who have been sorely missed.
Production on the 23rd James Bond movie began earlier this month and follows Bond's (Daniel Craig) loyalty to M (Judi Dench) after "her past comes back to haunt her." It will reportedly feature the character of Miss Moneypenny, as well, who hasn't appeared in the franchise since Pierce Brosnan was Bond. Naomie Harris (28 Days Later, Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) was initially believed to be playing the character, but in an interview with ITV after the Skyfall press conference, Harris revealed that she was playing "a field agent" named Eve, who "sees herself as Bond's equivalent". Helen McCrory (Hugo) may be playing Moneypenny instead. who is playing q? >> Posted 11.28.11 by Ryan
Those who were hoping for a Face/Off reunion for Nicolas Cage and John Travolta had their hopes dashed when Cage dropped out of the wilderness action thriller Shrapnel in July, leaving Travolta and director John McTiernan (Die Hard, Predator) to find a replacement. Months later, McTiernan is out, the movie has a new title and Cage is being replaced by... Robert De Niro?
It's true. Deadline reports that De Niro is in for Cage, playing an American military veteran who is now living in a cabin in the woods. Enter Travolta as a friendly European tourist, who is a former Serbian soldier bent on revenge (Travolta finally gets to show off his Serbian accent). Once the truth is discovered, a one-on-one battle ensues. "We’ve never seen these two great actors on screen together before, and we’re excited to see what comes of the combination," said producer Avi Lerner (Drive Angry, The Expendables). more cast members for Bond 23, Stallone Gets in The Tomb >> Posted 10.31.11 by Ryan
In an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Helen McCrory (who plays Narcissa Malfoy, Draco's mother) had all sorts of updates on the status of the two-part conclusion to the boy wizard's epic adventures. She is joining the rest of the cast for a read through of the script for the second part of Deathly Hallows today, and said that the sense of anticipation is really palpable.
We finish in April and it does feel different on set actually. Some people have been doing it for 10, 11 years. It's part of their lives. So although I've just joined them at the end, a lot of people have a huge emotional commitment to it. There are children that have grown up with the people on the set, like the directors and the costume designers backstage. It's a very big occasion for those people.
As a conclusion, she says Deathly Hallows can also offer something that none of the earlier Harry Potter movies could:
It's got a full stop. I think up to now, every director who has done a Harry Potter has had to do a dot-dot-dot. They know it's a sequel, they know there's another film coming out. But with this one, we can actually make everything have an epic ending. It's going to be final. And it's going to be huge. There doesn't have to be any more pauses or dot-dot-dots. So they're letting out all the stops with this one.
The underlying theme of these last two movies is how Harry becomes a man. And that, she emphasizes, really sets the stage for a dramatic finale. Posted 10.05.09 by reelz
