Rachel McAdams Could Join The Time-Travel Comedy About Time

By: Eric Eisenberg I’m starting to think that Rachel McAdams may have a thing for guys who have the ability to time travel. In 2009 she starred alongside Eric Bana in The Time Traveler’s Wife as a woman who lives a life with a husband who can’t control his ability to time jump, and now she’s getting set to play a similar role – only … Continue reading Rachel McAdams Could Join The Time-Travel Comedy About Time

Iron Man 3 May Replace Jessica Chastain With Rebecca Hall

By: Eric Eisenberg I was really bummed yesterday when it was revealed that Jessica Chastain would not be starring in Iron Man 3. I had this great vision of her character, Maya, and Pepper Potts (as played by Gwyneth Paltrow) squaring off against each other while also mirroring the other’s looks with their shared bright orange hair (in the “Extremis” arc that the movie is … Continue reading Iron Man 3 May Replace Jessica Chastain With Rebecca Hall

Jessica Chastain Up For Iron Man 3 Role As A Quick-Witted Scientist

By: Katey Rich Jessica Chastain was undeniably one of the biggest breakout stars of 2011, with roles in a series of prestigious and generally great films that culminated in her Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for The Help.

New Avengers Featurette Explains Black Widow’s Expanded Role On The Team

By: Sean O’Connell In the grand scheme of things, Black Widow isn’t a household name like Iron Man, Captain America or Thor. But Scarlett Johansson certainly has name recognition (and facial recognition), so it’s no real surprise that Marvel Studios is rolling out a character featurette with The Avengers on the horizon to alert audiences – primarily female ticket buyers – that there’s a lady … Continue reading New Avengers Featurette Explains Black Widow’s Expanded Role On The Team

Director Francis Lawrence To Be Offered The Hunger Games Sequel

Earlier this week, there were reports that the search for a Hunger Games sequel director had been narrowed down to two candidates. Those two filmmakers were Bennett Miller, director of Moneyball and Capote, and Francis Lawrence, who made Water For Elephants, I Am Legend and Constantine.

Catching Fire Director Still Narrowed Down To Two, But It Could’ve Been Attack The Block’s Joe Cornish

The hunt for a new director to take over Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire seems to be winding down, as Deadline reiterates the news we reported two days ago, that Moneyball‘s Bennett Miller and Water For Elephants‘s Francis Lawrence are pretty much the final two contenders.

T.R. Knight Joins Harrison Ford In Jackie Robinson Biopic 42

Since his departure from Grey’s Anatomy a few years back , T.R. Knight hasn’t appeared in much. In fact, with the exception of an episode of Law & Order: SVU, he’s reserved his acting talents for the stage since leaving the ABC drama series.

Ridley Scott’s next project, The Counselor, may be moving fast, but the talent that it’s collecting is no joke.
