Yup, this is a period piece alright. Just Jared have the first photos from the set of Guillermo del Toro’s latest horror film “Crimson Peak” and Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska look like they just stepped out of the 1800s. Wasikowska, taking over for Emma Stone, plays a young writer named Edith who discovers her new husband is not all he seems. It’s unclear if that husband is Hiddleston or Charlie Hunnam’s character, but Hiddleston does also play twin brother to Jessica Chastain, with the two being from an aristocraticRead More
English director Ben Wheatley took to Twitter to announce his next film, and it’s a good one: He’s directing an adaptation of JG Ballard’s “High-Rise,” and Tom Hiddleston will star in it.

A sequel to 2010’s billion-dollar grossing “Alice in Wonderland” seemed like a no brainer, but it’s taken until now to make it official. “Alice in Wonderland 2” is happening, will be released in 2016, and Mia Wasikowska will return as Alice, Disney announced today. Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter is also returning, and probably some other cast members as well, but one person who is not is director Tim Burton. Instead, “The Muppets” and upcoming sequel “Muppets Most Wanted” director James Bobin will take over directing duties. Hopefully this means aRead More

That “Twilight” fanfiction that somehow got published and then somehow got movie people to agree to put it on the big screen has pulled off another coup, managing to snag some pretty talented and up and coming actors in the lead roles. “Pacific Rim”‘s Charlie Hunnam and “Ben and Kate”‘s Dakota Johnson will play Edward Cullen Christian Grey and Bella Swan Anastasia Steele in “50 Shades of Grey,” it was announced today.

She’s signed on to another high profile film, joining Javier Bardem in JC Chandor’s “A Most Violent Year”, according to Variety. Chandor became a hot director of the moment after last year’s surprise VOD hit “Margin Call” and even more so premiering maritime disaster flick “All is Lost” starring Robert Redford at Cannes this year. He also wrote “A Most Violent Year”, and loglinesRead More
