I got yelled at yesterday after I posted this article about Jennifer Aniston on the set of her new movie, based on Elmore Leonard’s The Switch. The synopsis is very similar to Ruthless People. So there was all kinds of rage about how this project is a rip-off and why can’t anyone come up with any original ideas. Full Story

It’s a good week for Everwood alums. On the heels of the news that Emily VanCamp  landed the female lead in Captain America 2, it’s been announced that Chris Pratt, who also got his break on Everwood, won the coveted role of Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy. Full Story

Some random website posted last week that Alex Pettyfer was confirmed for Four in Divergent and there were panicked emails going back and forth and... well... You must consider the source. The report was quickly shut down. Pettyfer is not Four...yet. He is one of the actors being considered but they’ve not made a final decision, and that leak last week further verifies that because it smells exactly like the kind of moves they all started making during the casting process for Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games. Full Story

Here’s a very blonde Jennifer Aniston in Greenwich, CT working on a new movie, “the untitled Elmore Leonard Project”. Last year it was announced that she and Dennis Quaid had signed onto a film adaptation of Leonard’s The Switch. Obviously they’re still trying to figure out what else to call it. Full Story

Kate Winslet was photographed in London yesterday shopping at Tesco in black-rimmed glasses wearing her wedding ring, the first time it’s been seen since she was confirmed to have married Ned Rock’nroll late last year. It’s also the first time she’s been seen since it was reported last week that she’s in talks to star in the film adaptation of Divergent which starts shooting this spring in Chicago. Full Story

Emily VanCamp makes the leap

Are you down with Emily VanCamp? I thought she was adorable on Everwood, and though I’ve gone off Revenge (the second season didn’t live up to the promise of the first), I like her as the cold-blooded Emily Thorne. But she seems to polarize people like few actresses do—either you think she’s a good actress or you don’t; there doesn’t seem to be a lot of middle ground happening with her. Full Story

Sarah Posted by Sarah at February 4, 2013 15:56:04 February 4, 2013 15:56:04

Movie studios have taken to spending huge amounts of money for Super Bowl ad spots—they’re some of the biggest game day spenders—and with February just three months from the start of summer movie season, it’s the perfect time to start rolling out new trailers and footage for the upcoming blockbusters. Full Story

Daniel Craig’s Dragon Drama

Despite generally positive reviews and five Oscar nominations, the English-language adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo didn’t bowl over the box office. Still, Sony announced they would go ahead with the sequels, which to me was always the point of remaking the Swedish films anyway. Full Story

Entourage, like its HBO predecessor Sex and the City, is being turned into a movie. Great, so are the boys going to Abu Dhabi too? Entourage gave us douchebags before douchebags took over reality tv. The show was supposed to be super insider-y, but even someone with a passing interest in pop culture would understand most of the references. Full Story

Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY???? This was my reaction last night when Sarah messaged me that Nicholas Hoult had joined Twitter. She thought I was screaming about Jennifer Lawrence’s fans taunting him pretty much the minute he posted his first message. Frankly that made me happy. Full Story

George Clooney as Walt Disney?

Sarah Posted by Sarah at January 29, 2013 20:46:34 January 29, 2013 20:46:34

I was writing, waxing snarketic on George Clooney starring in a movie written by the guy who specializes in mystical sci-fi bullsh*t (Damon Lindelof of Lost and Prometheus fame) and based on Disney World’s most boring attraction, Tomorrowland (except for Space Mountain, which is f*cking awesome), when I had a thought: Several pieces of information clicked into place and suddenly I was struck by an idea. Full Story
