Movie Review: The Snowman

Lily Collins To Play Snow White

Lily Collins, who played Sandra Bullock's daughter in The Blind Side, has enchanted Relativity Media, which is in negotiations with the young actress to star as Snow White in its not-yet-titled retelling of the classic fairy tale.

Collins, who also is the daughter of rocker Phil Collins, is said to have blown away Relativity execs with her audition. The plan is for her to shoot Snow White before she films Mortal Instruments for Screen Gems.
Tarsem Singh is directing the 3D feature, which will also star Julia Roberts as the Queen and Armie Hammer as the Prince.

The film is slated for release on June 29, 2012 as it races to hit the screen before a competing Snow White project from Universal.

Collins, will next be seen in Screen Gems' Priest and Lionsgate's Abduction.

Todd McFarlane Talks About Possible New Spawn Film

We reported bay in November that Spawn creator Todd McFarlane was going to bring back an animated series to TV. But today mydvdinsider brings us news that the script for a new spawn movie is three quarters finished.

Back in 1997 Todd McFarlane's Spawn was released into theaters. The movie starred Michael Jai White as Al Simmons/Spawn, John Leguizamo as Al's demonic guide and antagonist Clown/The Violator, Melinda Clarke as the assassin Jessica Priest, Nicol Williamson as Al's mentor Cogliostro, Theresa Randle as Al's widow Wanda Blake, D. B. Sweeney as Wanda's husband Terry Fitzgerald, Martin Sheen as Al's former government employer Jason Wynn, and voice actor Frank Welker as the voice of Malebolgia.


We heard there might be another Spawn film in the works. The comic book series you launched in 1992 is still popular today. (Spawn #200 debuted in January.) But the 1997 movie was modestly received. Its star, Michael Jai White, thought the film wasn’t dark enough. …

Leonard Nimoy To Voice Sentinel Prime In Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Here is some news that should make Transformers: Dark of the Moon live long and prosper in the hearts of sci-fi fans.

Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, has joined the film as the voice of Sentinel Prime, the predecessor of Optimus Prime whose wrecked body is seen in the teaser trailer, found crash-landed on the moon by the Apollo 11 astronauts in 1969. Later, after being brought to earth, he takes the disguise form of a fire engine in the movie’s massive, climactic battle through Chicago.


Apart from his obvious Star Trek cred, Nimoy also has a history with Hasbro’s shape-shifting alien robots: He was the voice of Galvatron in 1986′s The Transformers: The Movie.

Transformers filmmaker Michael Bay had toyed with the idea of inviting him to play a voice in the second movie, Revenge of the Fallen, but wasn’t sure he could pay the veteran actor enough. “I was too scared to ask him,” the director says. “Plus, he’s married to Susan Bay, who’s a cousin of mine. So I had to be careful. I’ve me…

By Virtue Fall Starring Carla Gugino & Eric Bana

James Spader, Carla Gugino, Ryan Phillippe, Treat Williams and Kim Coates have joined the cast of Sheldon Turner's ByVirtue Fall. Eric Bana is already attached to play one of the two leads.

Turner, who most recently co-wrote the Oscar-nominated Up in the Air screenplay, has been working to pull together his directorial debut for months, with several lead actors, including Colin Farrell and Jeremy Renner, in various talks to take the other lead. While Farrell has moved on to Columbia's Total Recall remake, Renner is still a possibility, though his immediate schedule already contains Paramount's Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and Marvel Studios' The Avengers.

The Hurt Locker producer Voltage Pictures was once on board to finance By Virtue Fall, but now QED International (District 9, W.) looks to be handling foreign sales and putting up at least part of the money for production.

Turner's script tells the story of a pair of ATF agents who end up enemies after one fra…
