In an interview with W Magazine, actress Rosamund Pike shared her story of how she landed the coveted role of Amy in David Fincher‘s “Gone Girl”, one of our most anticipated films of the year. When she heard about Gone Girl, last summer, she was filming a comedy in a remote part of the Scottish Highlands. Fincher suggested that they get to know each other via Skype, and Pike had to join a gym near Glasgow just to secure an Internet connection. She had not been given the script butRead More
Paul Walker
Universal Pictures has announced via Facebook that Paul Walker‘s brothers Caleb and Cody Walker will help to complete scenes with Paul’s Brian O’Conner for James Wan‘s “Fast and Furious 7.” “We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film,” said the statement about the late actor who died back in November of a car accident. “We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. We believe our fans want that,Read More
White Bird in a Blizzard 2
Gregg Araki‘s coming-of-age indie “White Bird in a Blizzard” starring Shailene Woodley and Eva Green has been acquired by Magnolia Pictures for North American distribution. The ’80s-set “White Bird in a Blizzard” is based on the 1999 novel by Laura Kasischke, which follows a college-bound girl named Kat (Woodley) whose mother, Eve (Green), suddenly abandoned their family when she was 17. Kat is initially unaffected by her mother’s absence and continues her life with her father (Christopher Meloni). But when she starts getting haunted by nightmares about her mother’s criesRead More
Shailene Woodley in "Divergent"
At this point it’s not a surprise anymore but today it’s been made official: The final installment of the Shailene Woodley-led “Divergent” franchise, titled “Allegiant,” will be split into two films, following in the footsteps of “Harry Potter,” “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games.” The first film opened on March 24th and promptly broke the YA franchise curse suffered by so many other hopefuls in the past couple of years, taking in $55 million its opening weekend and hitting $100 million less than three weeks in. The first sequel, “Insurgent,” wasRead More

Forget May 14th, it appears JJ Abrams is even sneakier than we originally thought, and “Star Wars: Episode VII” is actually already filming, according to Disney chief Alan Horn. Horn revealed the surprising new info during an interview in front of students at the Loyola Marymount School of Film and Television in Los Angeles over the weekend. Additionally, casting on the film – which we still have zero official confirmation on – is just about done too: “We have a lot of them, it’s not completely done yet,” says Horn.Read More

Publicity is kicking up on Josh Boone’s adaptation of John Green’s massively popular YA novel “The Fault in Our Stars,” and they are taking it to – who else? – the fans. The film’s official Tumblr has launched “Demand Our Stars,” which asks fans to vote on where to bring the film’s stars – Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff – and Green himself on their national publicity tour. It’s not exactly a new concept, as “Twilight” kicked off the “mall tour” fad amongst YA adaptations, and every adaptationRead More
MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS
I don’t think I’m the only one who fell surprisingly hard for the relationship between Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) presented in “The Avengers,” though it was admittedly a very small part of the film that had much bigger issues to deal with. Now, Marvel boss Kevin Feige is promising that both characters will have larger roles in “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” but does that mean more development in that particular partnership? He doesn’t exactly clarify. Feige tells the LA Times that more of the BlackRead More

We still don’t even have a cast (save for Adam Driver, probably and some other rumors) but according to a new report, we may already be only six weeks away from the official start of filming of “Star Wars: Episode VII.” Come on, Disney, what’s the hold up? Badass Digest reports that the JJ Abrams directed reboot/sequel of the most iconic sci fi film franchise of all time is gearing up to begin shooting on May 14th, in the sandy dunes of Morocco. The blog suggests the location will likelyRead More

“Chronicle” was one of the best surprises at the cinema in recent years, but for one reason or another, a sequel, which should have been a guarantee given how successful the original film was, never came together. Director Josh Trank moved on (to “Fantastic Four,” among other projects), its trio of young stars did as well – Dane DeHaan to massive things, Michael B. Jordan also to “Fantastic Four” and even more massive things, Alex Russell to.. um, let’s move on – but it appears Fox hasn’t given up onRead More
