British actor Eddie Redmayne, one of our Faces to Watch in 2011, has landed the pivotal role of Marius Pontmercy in Tom Hooper’s big screen adaptation of “Les Miserables”, Deadline reports. Redmayne joins an impressive cast that includes Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe as arch enemies Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert, respectively, and Anne Hathaway as tragic figure Fantine. The Claude-Michel Schönberg musical, based on the classic novel by Victor Hugo, is the World’s Longest Running Musical and follows 19th century convict Jean Valjean (Jackman), who has been let outRead More
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
We’re not so psyched about this news, but here it is. As had been rumored for a couple months now, Anne Hathaway will indeed be joining Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe in Tom Hooper’s big screen adaptation of blockbuster hit musical “Les Miserables.” She will play Fantine, a poor young woman desperate to do anything she can to make money to send to the couple who is caring for her young daughter Cosette. Deadline reported this morning Hathaway has closed her deal so this is finally official. The Claude-Michel SchönbergRead 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
Those hoping to hear Hermione sing will have to wait a little longer. London’s The Daily Mail confirms that recent reports of Emma Watson being cast as Cosette in Tom Hooper’s big screen adaptation of “Les Miserables” are, in fact, incorrect. She will not be in the film. The only confirmed cast members thus far are Hugh Jackman as noble ex-con Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe as his arch nemesis, Inspector Javert. Hooper has also offered roles to Anne Hathaway (as Cosette’s mother Fantine) and Helena Bonham Carter (as greedyRead More
Hugh Jackman has made no secret of the fact that he wants to co-star with Anne Hathaway – who he romanced in an Oscar opening number the year he hosted – and it looks like he may now get his wish. Jackman is thus far the only official cast member of Tom Hooper’s big screen adaptation of international blockbuster musical “Les Miserables”, playing the lead role of Jean Valjean, and reports Hathaway may be joining him imminently. To add credence to the rumor, reps for the actress confirm toRead More
After months of speculation, the roles of Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Dark Knight Rises have been confirmed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this “conclusion of the Dark Knight legend,” will bring director Christopher Nolan, Cotillard and Gordon-Levit together again. The Dark Knight Rises is becoming a near-reunion for Inception stars, as — among the many “Dark Knight” actors — Cotillard and Gordon-Levitt will also be joining Michael Caine and Tom Hardy. In a statement, Nolan said, “When you collaborate with people as talented as Marion and Joe,Read More
Josh Pence, often called the unsung hero of “The Social Network”, might finally have his moment in the sun. After body-doubling as the Winklevoss twins and then having his face digitally replaced with that of Armie Hammer’s, thus erasing 99% of acknowledgment for his work on the film, Pence has now landed a whopper of a follow-up, one that is likely to be the breakout moment that “Social Network” wasn’t. THR reports that Pence has landed the role of a young Ra’s Al Ghul in Christopher Nolan’s next (and final)Read More
