Cher Joins Mamma Mia Sequel

Chloe Moretz Emily the Strange Film

Chloe Moretz To Star In Emily the Strange
Chloe Moretz, who gained fame as Hit-Girl in "Kick-Ass" and next stars in "Let Me In," will star as the title character in Universal's adaptation of counterculture icon "Emily the Strange."

Universal just acquired the rights to character, created by skateboarder Rob Reger among a multitude of designs he was printing up for stickers, T-shirts and skateboards in Santa Cruz in the early 1990s. The Emily design took off, with Reger's company, Cosmic Debris, going on to become a multimillion-dollar business with toeholds in fashion, books and comics, toys, school supplies and accessories.

Dark Horse Entertainment has been developing the character as a movie project since 2008. Although the company has a first-look deal with Universal, the project wasn't officially set up at the studio until now.

Dark Horse's Mike Richardson is producing. Reger is executive producing alongside Dark Horse's Keith Goldbe…

Ruffalo Hulk In Upcoming Avengers Film To Be Mo-Cap

No CGI For Ruffalo In Upcoming Avengers Film
In the two Incredible Hulk movies of the past decade, stars Edward Norton and Eric Bana played Bruce Banner but let the effects crew worry about the big green guy. In Marvel's upcoming The Avengers, though, Mark Ruffalo will actually play the Hulk:

"I'm really excited. No one's ever played the Hulk exactly, they've always done CGI,"  "They're going to do the Avatar stop-action, stop-motion capture. 
So I'll actually play the Hulk. That'll be fun." But he's nearly as excited about playing Banner: "I really love the first TV version of it, the Bill Bixby one," Ruffalo told us. "I'm gonna shoot for that a little bit. He was an everyman in it. He's always on the run and trying to find love. It's really a sympathetic character, before he turns into the Hulk and fucks everything up." Also, if you needed one more reason to be excited for Avengers, Ruffalo tells he&…

Teri Hatcher To Play Lois's Mom On Smallville

Teri Hatcher To Play Lois's Mom On Smallville
For the show’s 10th and final season, producers have scored perhaps their biggest (maybe even the biggest possible) casting coup: They’ve snagged erstwhile Lois Lane Teri Hatcher to play mom to Erica Durance’s Lois Lane!

I know what you’re thinking: But Lois’ mom, Ella, is dead! Follow along now…

In episode 8, titled “Abandoned,” Lois discovers old videotapes of her mother. I think you can figure the rest out for yourself. Am I right?

As you know, Hatcher spent four years playing Superman’s soul mate on ABC’s Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. The fact that the Desperate Housewives star was game to do this speaks volumes about her appreciation for that role (and the role it played in her future career). I’m sure they’re also paying her well, too.

I want to like this show. A lot. There is a void in my TV watching where Lost once stood. Granted Lost kind of lost it in the middle, but it picked back up and finished strong. I thought Flash Forward would take over this season, but it was canceled. I liked Fla…

New Trailer For Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part I

New Trailer For Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part I
The New movie trailer from Warner Bros. for the first part in the final chapter of the Harry Potter saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.

Enjoy the trailer after the jump..



Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.

Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry…

Black Widow Film In Talks

Johansson In Leather Jumpsuit? Yes Please
Are you ready for a Black Widow solo movie starring Scarlett Johansson? The film is being talked about and discussed as a possibility after Joss Whedon's Avengers movie, according to The HD Room. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige who is on the trail promoting the upcoming release of Iron Man 2 on DVD is quoted at an appearance saying.

"We've already started discussions with Scarlett about the idea of a solo movie and have begun putting together concepts," Feige said. "But The Avengers comes first."
I am not a huge fan of Johnansson, but I am a fan of ladies in tight jumpsuits and lovely ladies kicking ass. It makes sense that Marvel would wait to see how audiences react to that film before making any final decision about letting the Black Widow loose on her own. Still, given her long history in the comics, surely there’s enough scope for a decent film about her adventures?

CASINO JACK Trailer Starring Kevin Spacey

CASINO JACK Trailer Starring Kevin Spacey
I’m pleased to announce CASINO JACK, the whip-smart new comedy from ATO Pictures, starring two–time Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey and directed by George Hickenlooper. This story of a man who resorts to awe–inspiring levels of conning, scheming and fraudulent antics to secure the finer things in life hits theaters on December 29, 2010.

The real Jack Abramoff served three and one half years of a six-year sentence in federal prison, and is now assigned to a halfway house. He is scheduled to be released on December 4, 2010. Abramoff was a top lobbyist for the Preston Gates & Ellis and Greenberg Traurig firms and a director of the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative think tank, and Toward Tradition. He was College Republican National Committee National Chairman from 1981 to 1985. He was a founding member of the International Freedom Foundation.

Kevin Spacey is at peak form in his brilliant portrayal of Jack Abramoff,…

The Town Robs The Box Office This Weekend

The Town Robs The Box Office This Weekend
Older moviegoers rallied to fall's first star-driven movie drama, as Warner Bros.' Ben Affleck-helmed heist thriller "The Town" copped $23.8 million in U.S. and Canadian coin for a surprise No. 1 bow.

"Town" stars Affleck, Jon Hamm of TV's "Mad Men" fame and Jeremy Renner, a hot casting commodity since last year's "The Hurt Locker." The trio stumped tirelessly to promote the Boston-set pic, which was produced for under $35 million and was 50% co-financed by Legendary Pictures.

Affleck marked a new helming high by topping his $5.5 million debut with 2007's "Gone Baby Gone." But the bow by "Town" -- the first pic Affleck both directed and toplined -- was never going to approach his personal best as an actor, a $59.1 million opening with 2001's "Pearl Harbor."

The chart-topping performance by "Town" -- which also marked a record September bow f…

Keanu Reeves Talks Bill And Ted Sequel

Keanu Reeves On Board For A Bill And Ted 3?
It was on the glittering red carpet at the Oscars in March that Keanu Reeves tossed us a most excellent bit of semi-news about a potential new "Bill and Ted" sequel. "I'm trying, I'm trying," he said.

Was he serious? Just joking in the midst of the overly serious awards season circus? We honestly weren't sure. So when we got a chance to chat with Reeves again — this time at the Toronto Film Festival, where he was promoting "Henry's Crime" — we had to probe further. Is a third "Bill and Ted" flick really in the works? Might Reeves reunite with co-star Alex Winter and writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon?

Perhaps. And Reeves is positively giddy about the possibility that it actually could happen.

"We're trying. Alex and I are still friends and we're talking, and we're talking to Chris and Ed," Reeves said. "They're going to try and see if they can write som…

DC Comics To Play A Bigger Role At Warner Brothers.

DC Comics To Play A Bigger Role At Warner Brothers.
Advice to Warner Bros. film execs: If you're in a meeting with CEO Barry Meyer discussing DC Comics superheroes, you might want to think twice before saying things like, "But Batman wouldn't say that."

Meyer relayed the story of such a meeting while talking about how DC was going to play a much bigger role at the film studio going forward.

There will be an organizational announcement next week, then in about a month Warner Bros. will unveil a spread sheet detailing how the various superheroes will be reintroduced to consumers, and on more than just feature film platforms.

Meyer said Warner Bros. has been looking after DC in a "custodial way," but it's now time to get "much more entrepreneurial."
The superheroes of DC, though, may not be enough to make up for the loss of "Harry Potter" after the final installment of that movie franchise is released July 15.
