Not to be left out of the whole CGI-rendered talking animal movie craze, furry woodland crooners Alvin and the Chipmunks have joined the likes of Babe, Garfield and The Cat in the Hat with their very own live-action flick, opening this Friday. Jason Lee (TV's My Name is Earl) stars as perpetually screaming manager/legal guardian David Seville, with Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard, those annoying Apple commercials) providing the voice for Chipmunks frontman Alvin.

The folks at Sony hosted a preview today of Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, the latest guaranteed blockbuster from the Judd Apatow comedy empire. Starring John C. Reilly and directed by Jake Kasdan, Walk Hard is the first bona fide parody from the Apatow gang, spoofing of Walk the Line, The Doors and pretty much every other musician biopic ever made.
Being an Apatow flick, Walk the Line also features the requisite number of cameos, including a hilarious scene in which Cox drops acid with the Beatles while in India. Paul Rudd plays John, Justin Long plays George, Jack Black plays Paul and Jason Schwartzman plays Ringo. Much of the scene is spent poking fun at the fact that none of the actors remotely resemble members of the Fab Four.
Expect a more accurate impersonation from White Stripes frontman Jack White, who plays Elvis in a brief but memorable cameo. Posted 10.11.07 by reelz
Renee Zellweger has signed on to star in Appaloosa, a Western drama that will be directed by Ed Harris (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13). The movie is about "a pair of friends hired to protect a lawless town suffering at the hands of a renegade rancher," says Variety.com.
Harris, who will also be starring in the movie, adapted the script with Robert Knott (with whom he worked in Pollock) from the 2006 novel by Robert B. Parker. Harris will also be re-uniting with his A History of Violence co-star Viggo Mortensen, who also toplines the film which will start filming in New Mexico in October.
And according to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Connelly (Blood Diamond), Kevin Connolly (Entourage), Bradley Cooper (Wedding Crashers), Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard) and Ginnifer Goodwin (Big Love) are all close to closing casting deals in Ken Kwapis's (License to Wed) film adaptation of He's Just Not That Into You.
As we reported in June, Drew Barrymore will be producing and starring in the movie, based on the book by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo.
And finally, MTV.com is reporting that actress Rosario Dawson (Grindhouse, Sin City 2) won't be in Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno after all. Although Smith wrote the role of Miri with Dawson in mind, it appears she is too busy with her other projects (most notably Eagle Eye, which will be directed by D.J. Caruso) to fit it into her schedule. We wonder if Smith will delay shootnig Zack and Miri to get his muse? Posted 08.07.07 by reelz
