Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz are about to get a new superhero sidekick. Deadline reports British rising star Robert Emms has been tapped to play the role of Insect Man in “Kick Ass 2”, the sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s 2010 comic book adaptation. Jeff Wadlow takes over the directing chair from Vaughn on the sequel, since the original director will be too busy prepping an early 2013 shoot for the “X-Men: First Class” sequel. In the 2010 film based on the comic book of the same name byRead More
Two of our favorite up and comers are joining forces, as Deadline reports Armie Hammer and Teresa Palmer have signed on to star in indie crime thriller “Cut Bank.” They will be joined by an impressive cast that also includes Sir Ben Kingsley, John Malkovich and Michael Sheen. Matt Shakman will make his feature directorial debut on the project from a 2009 Black List script by Roberto Patino. Hammer will play Dwayne McLaren, a small town auto mechanic in Cut Bank, Montana, who will do anything to get out ofRead More
Back in January Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly signed on to headline indie family drama “Writers”, playing exes and parents, and now it looks like their children may have been found. Variety reports that Lily Collins and Logan Lerman are the new additions to the cast, along with Nat Wolff, Liana Liberato and Kristen Bell and even a cameo from novelist Stephen King. “Writers”, indeed. Josh Boone wrote and will make his directorial debut on the film. “Writers” is touted to be a “funny and touching tale of a fracturedRead More
Now this is what we call coming full circle. Hailee Steinfeld and Lily Collins have pulled a complete Juliet switcheroo on us and Variety is reporting it is Collins, not Steinfeld, who is now in negotiations to play Juliet in revisionist romantic comedy “Rosaline”, which retells the famous Shakespearean classic from the point of view of the young woman Romeo claimed to have been in love with at the beginning of the story – right before falling in love at first sight with the fair Capulet. As previously reported, DeoborahRead More
So, we were pretty hard on the first trailer for Tarsem Singh’s Snow White film “Mirror Mirror” and honestly, it seemed like maybe Relativity Media were starting to have doubts as well, since it’s been a few months since that release and there’s been nary a peep from the movie til now, even though it releases in less than two months. The jokes seem somewhat toned down (or better hidden) in the new trailer/behind-the-scenes clip, with an emphasis on Lily Collins and the “modernized” Snow White she embodies, but weRead More
Looks like Lily Collins is getting to that stage in her career where she wants to start distancing herself from that kid-friendly, good-girl image that’s made her a rapidly rising star in the last couple of years. Bloody Disgusting reports the actress is the first to sign on to the remake of Sam Raimi horror classic “Evil Dead”, and she will be playing an ex-drug addict whose past erratic behavior makes her something of an unreliable “girl who cried demonic monsters” to her friends. Raimi wrote the script for theRead More
Dashing, princely, nice guy Armie Hammer will take a turn for the dark side next year, according to Deadline. The “Social Network” star has signed on to play the lead role in “By Virtue Fall”, the revenge thriller directorial debut of Sheldon Turner, who co-wrote the Oscar-nominated “Up in the Air” with Jason Reitman. Hammer will star opposite Eric Bana, who had previously been cast as the film’s villain. Hammer, in a storyline that’s starting to sound familiar, stars as an ATF agent who is framed on a corruption chargeRead More
The first trailer for “Mirror Mirror” has arrived, and… oy. The combined puppy dog charms of Lily Collins and Armie Hammer aren’t enough to overcome an especially grating Julia Roberts, disappointingly limp costumes and sets and dialogue full of puns so terrible I can’t even make a pun here to clever this sentence up. We were rooting for your Snow White movie, Tarsem Singh (even, at times, over that other one), but why are you making it so hard? Looks like Tarsem and Co. were aiming for family-friendly comedy adventureRead More

Following the new poster of “Snow White and the Huntsman,” Universal has released a full length trailer of their adaptation of the classic tale, as well as an additional poster featuring an armored Kristen Stewart in the title role of Snow White. The new poster mirrors the earlier promo shot of Stewart released the past summer, but she’s now accompanied by her seven (soldier) dwarfs. In the almost two minute glimpse into the film, we’re finally treated to real-life action that mixes magical warfare and intrigue. Judging by the trailer, the film looks likeRead More
