Earlier this month, Demi Moore was cast as feminist author Gloria Steinem in Lovelace, the biopic about the life and career of the late 1970's porn star Linda Lovelace. Only three weeks later, Moore has dropped out.
Moore's recent hospitalization was cited as the reason for the actress' sudden exit and her recovery will be keeping her busy. "Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health," said Moore's rep in a statement to THR. "She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."
Just as Moore has dropped out, Chloë Sevigny has joined the cast, THR separately reports. Sevigny will play a feminist journalist working for a men's magazine that is on assignment to uncover the real Lovelace (Amanda Seyfried). Livingston and Taylor to be haunted >> Posted 01.26.12 by Ryan
Writer-director Dylan Kidd made an impression with his 2002 debut movie Roger Dodger, but has been mostly absent since until co-writing and directing 2004's little-seen P.S. and, most recently, directing episodes of the Adult Swim series Children's Hospital. Now Kidd is looking to get back to directing movies with the comedy Get a Job for CBS Films.
Variety reports that Miles Teller (Project X) is in negotiations to star in the movie as a college graduate who, along with his friends, attempts to enter the working world during a recession. Offers have been made to Anna Kendrick (Up In the Air, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) for unspecified roles, while Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick-Ass) and Jay Pharaoh (Saturday Night Live) could appear in the movie as well. Jesse Eisenberg, who co-starred in Kidd's Roger Dodger, would appear in a cameo.
None of the actors are confirmed yet, as CBS Films has yet to give Get a Job the official greenlight. Therefore, the movie has no official start date, but, according to the report, shooting could start as early as next month. Newcomers Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel wrote the Get a Job script.

THR has revealed the first teaser poster for Paramount Pictures' Young Adult, the second collaboration between screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman. Their previous movie, 2007's Juno, won Cody an Oscar and Reitman his first Academy Award nomination.
Young Adult stars Charlize Theron as an alcoholic, teen fiction writer who returns to her hometown in Minnesota to rekindle a romance with an old boyfriend (Patrick Wilson), who is now happily married. There, she runs into another former high school classmate (Patton Oswalt), who also has had a tough time letting go of the past. A photo of Theron in character was released by the studio a few weeks ago.
Opening December 16, Paramount is likely hoping that Young Adult captures the Academy's attention the way Juno did, perhaps awarding Theron with a nomination for what looks like the kind of image-shattering turn that won the actress her Oscar for 2003's Monster (only, Young Adult is probably funnier). Expect a trailer to arrive soon. Posted 09.06.11 by Ryan
Four new preview clips from the upcoming horror movie Insidious have turned up online. Directed by James Wan, the writer and director of Saw, and co-produced by Wan and Oren Peli, the writer and director of Paranormal Activity, Insidious stars Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne as the parents of a boy who has fallen into a mysterious coma-like state while demonic entities from a dimension called "The Further" fight to trap the boy's soul in their realm so that they can gain entry into our world through his body. watch the new preview clips >> Posted 03.13.11 by BrentJS
Hollywood's never-ending onslaught of remakes continues! January's remakes and sequels were a varied and surprising bunch, and the most recent crop is no different. This month sees a classic romantic comedy and horror movie get reinvented, while another European thriller gets Americanized and an ensemble comedy gets updated.
Hard to believe that The Bodyguard is almost twenty years old, which may be why Warner Bros. is looking to remake it. Deadline reports that screenwriters Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer will write the remake of the 1992 original, which saw Kevin Costner as an ex-Secret Service Agent who falls for the singer (Whitney Houston) he has been assigned to protect from a stalker. The remake won't stray too far, changing the Costner character to a Iraq War veteran and updating the movie to include cyber-stalking. According to the report, the plan is cast a young singer "with global appeal" in the Houston role. Hellraier NOT a remake? >> Posted 02.25.11 by Ryan

Last week, it was reported that director Zack Snyder, producer Christopher Nolan, and studio Warner Bros. had begun the casting process for the upcoming Superman reboot. Reportedly, the search was for "an actor in the 28-to-32 age range" who perhaps is an actor from a TV show that "isn't well known yet." If the hard-to-trust rumor mill is to be believed, that person could be British actor Matthew Goode. Superman to be CGI? >> Posted 11.24.10 by Ryan
The last character cast in the big-screen adaptation of The A-Team was Sharlto Copley as "Howling Mad" Murdock. In a series of interviews with MTV about the upcoming movie, A-Team director Joe Carnahan explained that Copley's imagination and improvisational skills made him the perfect actor for the part.
Sharlto's such a ridiculously-talented guy in so many ways. I find with Sharlto that you can't exhaust his imagination, in terms of he will always give you. In fact, we got flack from the studio one day, because we shot nine rolls of film of just Sharlto in this one scene; he just kept going and going and going!
Sharlto's attitude was that Murdock's nuts, so I have to be a bit nuts too — and Sharlto was never lacking for suggestions. By his own admission, he could drive you nuts with that stuff — but in the best way, because he became such a good collaborator. Sharlto and I would get laughs over something we thought Murdock should do, and he just did it.
In the TV show, the relationship between B.A. Baracus (Mr. T) and Murdock (Dwight Schultz) was one built on constant tension, and Carnahan says that Copley would brave on-set dangers to exploit that tension in the movie.
With Sharlto, we just gave him a series of props and he started doing a puppet show for B.A. We had him doing this scene in Iraq where he's using gun powder to season steaks, and we rigged everything to blow up. We'd tell him to be careful for his eyes, and he just didn't care; smoke and fire was coming up in his face.
Carnahan also revealed more about Jessica Biel's character of Lieutenant Sosa, who is a military operative — and Bradley Cooper's ex-girlfriend — tasked with hunting down The A-Team.
Jessie, she's a captain with DCIS, which is the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, They're basically the department of the defense, and she supersedes [military officials] — if she goes on a base, it doesn't matter if you're a general, she can supplant you. She's kind of the chief nemesis, because of her relationship with Bradley's character. [The A-Team] are invariably always up to no good; they're renegades, and she believes people like this need to be policed and shut down.
Biel won't be the only character causing trouble for the A-Team. While it was initially speculated that Patrick Wilson was going to play a CIA operative that would likely aid the four fugitives, Carnahan revealed that Wilson's character of Lynch will be the team's second nemesis and may not have a very happy ending.
Lynch was the original guy in the [TV] pilot that was chasing them — we basically made him a CIA operative, played by Patrick Wilson.It was important that we have a main villain that we could dispose of, and another one that can linger on that we can bring back if we make another one of these. We've got a cameo at the end that I can't blow, but it will tell you where this thing is going forward.
Whether that cameo will be the character of Decker, who hunted the A-Team in the TV series, Carnahan said, "He may or may not be." Posted 02.05.10 by Ryan
The A-Team cast is growing. After recently adding Jessica Biel and Sharlto Copley as an army general pursuing the team and "Howling Mad" Murdock, respectively, Entertainment Weekly reports that Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) is joining the cast as a CIA operative. More than likely, Wilson will be aiding the group of vets accused of a crime they didn't commit, as they attempt to escape capture from Biel and her team.
Necessary in any good A-Team mission is the group's van, and ComingSoon has a photo of the van currently being used in the movie's production in Vancouver. Fans of the TV show will no doubt be pleased by the almost identical nature of the new van, though reportedly the movie version plans to stray from the sometimes silly tone of the TV show for a more serious one.
The A-Team opens June 11, 2010 and stars Liam Neeson as Hannibal, Bradley Cooper as Faceman, and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as B.A. Baracus alongside Biel, Copley, and Wilson. Joe Carnahan (Narc) is directing from a script by Skip Woods (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra). Posted 09.20.09 by Ryan
