Ra's Al Ghul Has Been Cast For The Dark Knight Rises

Josh Pence, who played opposite Armie Hammer as Tyler Winklevoss in The Social Network (where Hammer's face was superimposed on his), has been cast as a young Ra's Al Ghul in Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan's new Batman movie.

The movie's casting has been ultra-secret, although Christian Bale, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman are returning to lead a caped crusading cast, which includes Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard.

The story line has also been kept locked up in the Batcave but Pence's casting throws more than a few crumbs to follow. Ra's Al Ghul was played by Liam Neeson in Batman Begins, thus paving the way for a possible return of the supposedly dead character. Also, while the studio never confirmed Cotillard's character, it has been rumored to be that of Thalia Al Ghul, the daughter of Batman's mentor-turned-enemy.
Sources say Pence will appear in scenes that take place 30 years prior to the present story.

Liam Neeson Cut From The Hangover Part II

Liam Neeson won’t be appearing in the upcoming The Hangover Part II when the film is released in theaters May 26.

The actor had filmed scenes as a tattoo artist for the Bangkok-set sequel, but his cameo was edited out when director Todd Phillips was forced to do reshoots and Neeson was not available, according to published reports.
In the film, the tattoo artist is one of the characters the guys have to track down during their adventures. The character is described as “crazy” and “intense,” and “someone you’re afraid to talk to.”

The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes stepped in to fill Neeson’s shoes.

The role was originally meant for Mel Gibson, but after several people in the project objected, the role was recast.

Ben Affleck Could Star In "The Great Gatsby"

Ben Affleck is in talks to play the role of Tom Buchanan in The Great Gatsby, the Baz Luhrmann-directed 3D adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald literary classic at Warner Bros. Now, Affleck will have to work to fit this in. After starring in and directing The Town, he’s prepping to direct Argo, a film about the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. But signs point toward him making time in his schedule to join Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan in Gatsby. Both projects are at Warner Bros.

Tom Buchanan is the husband of Daisy (Mulligan), in a role originated by Bruce Dern in the 1974 film. DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby (Robert Redford starred in the original) and Maguire plays Nick Carraway (Sam Waterston in the 1974 pic). Luhrmann, who wrote the script with Craig Pearce, is still in the process of setting the roles of Jordan Baker (originated by Lois Chiles), the gas station owner George Wilson (Scott Wilson) and his wife Myrtle (played by Karen Black in the original). Tom is havin…

Christopher Mintz-Plasse stars as Charlie's best buddy "Evil" Ed -- and adds another notch to his geek cinema belt.

Imogen Poots plays a popular high schooler who must rely on the nerdy Charlie to protect her. This truly is a film of unspeakable horrors.

Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) knows his next-door neighbor Jerry Dandridge (Colin Farrell) is a vampire, but no one will believe him. How much more proof do they need?

Arnold Schwarzenegger Next Film Could Be "The Last Stand"

UPDATE, NOW WITH MORE HEAT: Sources tell Heat Vision that Schwarzenegger and Lionsgate are far along in the dealmaking process and a tentative late August start date is being eyed. Dealmaking could still fall apart over money, but if made, Lionsgate would get bragging rights to having the first post-office Arnie movie, a movie that would likely be a safe bet for all involved as it would it old school Arnie: him versus a bunch of bad guys.

Arnold Schwarzenegger might have found his big-screen return project. Sources say that the actor-turned-governor-turned-returning actor is circling The Last Stand, a Lionsgate action project being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

Jee-Woon Kim, the director behind Korean film The Good, The Bad, The Weird, is helming the crime thriller, which is set in motion when a cartel leader breaks out of a courthouse and speeds to the Mexican border. The only thing standing in his way is a bordertown sheriff and his inexperienced staff.

Don't Blink Or You'll Miss Hawkeye In This THOR Clip

If you blink you'll miss seeing Hawkeye in this Exclusive Via IGN.


IGN spoke exclusively with Hemsworth this week about Thor and reprising the role in next summer's The Avengers, which he said starts filming this month in Albuquerque, New Mexico.


As Thor edges closer to release and the promotional machine really ramps up, has it hit you just what the hell you've gotten yourself into?

Yes and no, I guess. It's still sort of surreal to see the billboards come up and you start to see the trailers playing and you say, 'Wow, it's actually happening.' But a year and a half ago when I first got cast, I was certainly informed of how big it was gonna be so I've had that time to think about it, but yeah you still double-take at billboards and go, 'What the hell is that?!'

Will Sofia Vergara Join The Cast Of Three Stooges?

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara is in discussions to join the growing cast of Three Stooges.

Sean Hayes and Will Sasso have so far been cast in the comedy being directed by the Farrelly brothers. Still up for grabs is the part of Moe.

The movie is not a biopic but will be divided into roughly half-hour vignettes.

Vergara doesn't have the offer just yet, although one is expected to be issued shortly. She is expected to play a devious woman who pretends to be the wife of a dying man and tells the Stooges she'll pay them a handsome sum if they kill the man in his sleep. The story line makes up the second vignette.

Andy Serkis Is Second Unit Director For The Hobbit

Andy Serkis, who played the iconic Gollum in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings, is taking on a new role in The Hobbit 1 and 2. In addition to reprising his role as the tragic creature, Serkis also has been tapped by Jackson to serve as second unit director on the two films, which are now in production in New Zealand.

“I think I understand Peter’s sensibility and we have a common history of understanding Middle Earth,” Serkis told The Hollywood Reporter. “A lot of the crew from The Lord of the Rings was returning to work on The Hobbit. There is really a sense of Peter wanting people around him who totally understand the material and the work ethic."
Serkis has already done some directing, including performance capture on a couple video games including Heavenly Sword. But, he said, “When Peter asked me. There was this email out of the blue. It was a fantastic surprise.”

When he completes The Hobbit movies, Serkis aims to direct his first live-action feature. In addition, he an…

Zack Snyder Talks About Chris Nolan & Superman: Man Of Steel

Faster than a speeding bullet or merely Batcycle-quick? That was the question we put to Superman: Man Of Steel's director Zack Snyder when Empire collared him at Sucker Punch's recent London junket. Credit to him, he resisted the urge to kick-off a superhero turf war, giving a diplomatic answer that involved kryptonite arrows and a slightly baffled look.

The diplomacy was unsurprising considering the Dark Knight's current custodian, Christopher Nolan, is working closely with Snyder and writer David Goyer to bring Supes back to the big screen.

"Chris has been amazingly generous with me," Snyder told us of his producer's contributions to Superman: Man Of Steel's storyline. "He's making [The Dark Knight Rises] but he takes time if we're knocking around ideas for the script. We'll all sit around in a room, beat it around and try to figure it out..."
So there you have it: Nolan has officially developed an Inception-like power over time to …

Sylvester Stallone Wants Walter Hill For "Headshot"

Sylvester Stallone has met with Walter Hill about directing Headshot, a job that became available after Wayne Kramer exited the film this week. Word was that Kramer exited because he didn't see eye to eye creatively with Stallone, who'll star. Said Stallone: "Initially, Mr. Kramer was hired to direct a dark comedy; however his vision was much darker and exceptionally more violent than how the project was originally conceived. It was decided that it would be better for everyone to move on and consequently Mr. Kramer was dismissed by producers earlier this week. There were no volatile clashes, it was simply a professional parting of the ways."

As for the prospect of working with the 48 Hours and Warriors director Hill, Stallone said he has had serious meetings with the helmer: "I completely respect Walter's incredible body of work and hopefully this legendary director will become attached to the project." The film is slated to go into production before s…

Dish Network To Acquire Blockbuster

Satellite TV operator Dish Network's proposed $320 million acquisition of video rental company Blockbuster, if approved, will allow the company to expand its on-demand and online content offerings or even launch a Netflix competitor, according to analysts.

While some highlighted the small purchase price and potential benefits, at least one analyst, Sanford C. Bernstein's Craig Moffett, called the deal "strategically puzzling" and questioned whether Blockbuster may become a financial burden for Dish. "The deal still presents meaningful risk in that Blockbuster's business is a rapidly melting ice cube, and it is entirely possible that it becomes a drain on
cash flow going forward," he said.

A bankruptcy judge must still formally approve the deal on Thursday, but Wall Street analysts started discussing this and potential other fallout on Wednesday.

The stocks of acquirors often take hits as investors worry about execution risks and high price tags. However…
