Another new fairy tale adaptation is heading for the big screen, and this time Sofia Coppola will be behind the camera. She’s taken over a live action version of “The Little Mermaid” from Joe Wright, and this one is said to be much closer to its Hans Christian Andersen roots than the now iconic Disneyfied Ariel version. So who will play Coppola’s Little Mermaid, who gives up her voice and undergoes excruciating pain in order to exchange her flippers for legs in order to live amongst the humans who fascinateRead More

She’s one of the most iconic and polarizing politicians working today so it’s no surprise that a biopic of Hillary Clinton is on its way to the big screen. James Ponsoldt, critically acclaimed director of “Smashed” and “The Spectacular Now”, has been picked to direct Young Il Kim’s Black List script “Rodham,” focusing not on the powerful figure she is today, but the woman who would become her one day. Kim’s script follows Clinton’s early career in the 1970s when she was just Hillary Rodham, a recent Yale Law schoolRead More

It’s the question on everyone’s minds now that we have our Hazel Grace in “The Descendants” star Shailene Woodley: Who will play her sparring partner, love interest and fellow cancer survivor Augustus Waters in “The Fault in Our Stars”? Josh Boone is directing the adaptation of the best-selling John Green YA novel, and the casting for Augustus will likely be even more scrutinized than Woodley as Hazel. Gus, described as long and lean with dark hair and blue eyes who’s witty and spouts off romantic soliloquies in his wooing ofRead More

With the announcement that Shaliene Woodley has been cast in the lead role in the upcoming dystopian “Divergent“, as well as Kate Winslet being in talks for an unknown role, this adaptation of the YA novel just got a little more real. Naturally, the next course of action will be to seek out other young individuals (well-known or perhaps not) to fill out the rest of the roles of Tris’ friends and foes alike. It’s no surprise that among Tris’ circle of friends is a love interest, and yes, it’sRead More

Move over, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty, the next fairy tale princess is ready for her moment in the spotlight. Ok, so “Mirror Mirror” and “Snow White and the Huntsman” didn’t exactly light the box office on fire, and “Maleficent” is still a big question mark, but Disney is ready to move forward on another live action big screen adaptation of another fairy tale. This time, it’s “Cinderella”, and it’s happening fast, with Mark Romanek already set to direct and acclaimed Aussie actress Cate Blanchett in negotiations to join theRead More

This isn’t the article for you, kneejerk remake/reboot haters. “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” is heading to the big screen, according to Deadline, and we couldn’t be more excited. Of course it will be updated and modernized and inevitably, “edgier” than its 1960s Archie Comics origins, and undoubtedly quite a bit darker than the 1990s long-running sitcom starring Melissa Joan Hart was as well, but it still sounds like it could be really fun. The film will be re-imagined as more of a superhero origin tale, but will still follow SabrinaRead More

The team behind the massive critical and commercial success “The Social Network” are at it again. Producers Scott Rudin and Dana Brunetti have teamed up with author Ben Mezrich – whose book “The Accidental Billionaires” was the basis from which the Oscar-winning film was made – for another film. Mezrich’s new book, “Sex on the Moon”, is another true story that’s no less juicy and scandalous and filled to the brim with young, morally ambiguous and party-hard geniuses, and the filmmakers have fittingly set “Easy A” helmer Will Gluck toRead 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

Hands down, one of our most highly anticipated upcoming movies is the long-gestating big screen adaptation of worldwide blockbuster musical “Les Miserables”. Australian actors Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe – both acting and singing heavyweights, well done, Tom Hooper – have been officially set for the lead roles of Jean Valjean, a reformed escaped convict and Javert, the by-the-numbers police inspector relentlessly on his tail, but there are plenty of other crucial roles to be cast. As Jean Valjean journeys through 19th century France with Javert hot on his heels,Read More

We already gave our suggestions for who should play Mia, the teenager who must decide to live or die after a car accident claims the life of her entire family in Gayle Foreman’s successful teen novel “If I Stay”, and now with the release of its sequel “Where She Went”, the first person narrative turns to that of Adam, the aspiring rock star boyfriend who stayed by her side and now must deal with the aftermath of her choice. With Brazilian director Heitor Dhalia taking the reins on an adaptationRead More
