Well, that was fast. Literally minutes after we learned that Amanda Seyfried has been offered the role of Cosette in Tom Hooper’s big screen adaptation of “Les Miserables”, Twitch Film breaks even more big news, reporting that country singer Taylor Swift has emerged as Hooper’s choice and has the offer to take the role of Eponine. If earlier reports are to be believed, Swift beat out Evan Rachel Wood, Scarlett Johansson and “Glee” star Lea Michele for the role, quite a coup for the singer who has only dabbled brieflyRead More
Probably the most highly anticipated movie of next year by a certain large faction of internet inhabitants, “The Dark Knight Rises” has finally released its first trailer. Of course, most of the die-hards have probably already seen what is shown below after shelling out $14 for “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” this weekend, which boasted an exclusive six-minute prologue/teaser from Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film. For the rest of us though, this abbreviated footage is still very impressive, as all of Nolan’s Bat flicks have been. Anne Hathaway slinks and slithersRead More
More “Les Miserables” news coming right up! The Daily Mail confirms earlier reports that Sacha Baron Cohen is in final negotiations to star as innkeep Thenardier for Tom Hooper’s big screen adaptation of the hit musical, and further breaks the news that Broadway vet Aaron Tveit has also just been cast as revolution leader Enjolras. Tveit is adding some real Broadway theatre cred to the production that thus far consists of mostly movie stars that have had little to no stage experience (barring Hugh Jackman, of course). Tveit’s Enjolras isRead More

While no official announcement has been made, the sleuths over at Cinema Blend have apparently uncovered some major “Les Miserables” movie casting news through – what else? – Twitter.

Anne Hathaway is the latest to follow in the footsteps of many an actor who have donned hats behind the camera. THR reports the former Disney actress turned Oscar nominee will take a stab at producing her first film, a thriller called “Puzzler” set up at Paramount that she will, of course, also star in. Details are sparse on the project that will be penned by “Trespass” scribe Karl Gadjusek, but it is being described as “female-driven, paranoid thriller in the vein of ‘Three Days of the Condor’.” Producing alongsideRead More

Emma Stone won’t be Elizabeth Bennet. And neither will Blake Lively. Nor Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, or Mia Wasikowska. We’re stumped. And so is most of Hollywood. What is it about this script that is stopping these talented young actresses from taking on, what we feel, is a new and exciting adaptation of a much-loved character? In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an adaptation of the Jane Austen novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the classic love story has been turned on it’s head with the inclusion of zombies andRead More
