Cher Joins Mamma Mia Sequel

Denzel Washington Has A Secret In His Eyes

Twitch has learned that Denzel Washington has been offered the lead role in the upcoming Warner Brothers backed thriller The Secret In Their Eyes. The picture is a remake of the Oscar winning Argentinian film of the same name from director Juan Jose Campanella to be written and directed by Billy Ray (Shattered Glass, Breach) with Washington offered the lead role played by Ricardo Darin in the original.

A retired legal counselor writes a novel hoping to find closure for one of his past unresolved homicide cases and for his unreciprocated love with his superior - both of which still haunt him decades later.

Washington is currently scheduled to star in Robert Zemeckis' Flight next so, should he take on the part, this would have to role once his work on that picture is complete.

Can You See Isla Fisher?

Though Louis Leterrier has been gathering a solid cast for his new film, heist drama Now You See Me, it looks like he’s lost one actress but gained another: Variety reports that Amanda Seyfried has dropped out of contention for a role in the film, leading the way clear for Isla Fisher to enter talks.

The plot finds Mark Ruffalo as the leader of an FBI team dedicated to tracking down the Four Horseman, a gang made up of some of the world’s greatest magicians who pull off bank raids during their performances and then spread the wealth among their audiences. Jesse Eisenberg is the arrogant leader of the Horsemen and now Fisher will play Henley, a master illusion builder who helps the criminals pull off their tricks.

Morgan Freeman will be a former illusionist who has been shunned by his peers for revealing how their tricks work, while Melanie Laurent is on as a federal agent.

Fisher’s currently busy working on Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby in Australia and will also crop up in Bachelore…

Source Code Is Being Developed Into A Television Show

Mark Gordon is bringing his feature film Source Code to the small screen.

His Mark Gordon Company, which is locked into an overall deal at ABC Studios, has sold a TV version of the sci-fi thriller to CBS with a meaningful penalty. The news marks ABC Studios' first off-network sale of the development season.

Like the film on which it is based, the action/procedural follows three former federal agents who are part of a top-secret program. Each week, they'll use "Source Code" technology to jump into the consciousness of people involved in tragic events.

Gordon (Grey's Anatomy, Criminal Minds) will produce the project, with Vendome Pictures' Philippe Rousselet serving as a consulting producer. Steve Maeda (Lie to Me, Lost) is on board to write.

This follows a flurry of development season deals for Gordon's company, including a contemporary Miami Vice-style crime drama Untouchable, a Crazy Stupid Love-esque emotional procedural Winging It and an adaptation of …

Hawthorne James will direct the film. Pre-production is to begin in December, with a March start date targeted.

J.J. Abrams Beams Into Star Trek 2

Attention impatient sequelphiles: Vulture can confirm that J.J. Abrams has finally committed to shooting Star Trek 2. Insiders familiar with the director's plans tell Vulture that pre-production is underway, that the script will be done by month's end and that Abrams will start shooting this winter.

While many assumed he would make the follow-up to his 2009 hit, he would never give a date for the project, or actually say for sure that he would be the one directing. In July, reports elsewhere surfaced that Abrams was “moving towards a commitment” to direct the sequel (which, of course, is Internet for “hasn’t committed yet”) but his delay had pushed a nervous Paramount Pictures to give Trek 2's late June 2012 release date to a G.I. Joe sequel.

Part of the hold-up has been that Alex Kurtzman, who wrote Abrams' first Trek with Roberto “Bob” Orci, has been busy editing and posting Welcome to People, his directing debut at DreamWorks Pictures. We’re told that now that Kurtz…

Ethan Hawke & Vince D’Onofrio Cast In NBC Cop Drama "Blue Tilt"

In what will instantly become one of this season’s highest-profile drama projects, Deadline reports that Ethan Hawke and Vince D’Onofrio have teamed with writer-producer Chris Brancato for a cop drama that has been nabbed by NBC with a production commitment. Brancato conceived the project, titled Blue Tilt, and took it to Hawke and D’Onofrio, who helped shape it. All three will executive produce. The show will star Hawke and D’Onofrio as two seasoned homicide detectives — one married and one divorced — as they solve cases while dealing with their wives/ex-wives and kids. The title Blue Tilt refers to a cop term for homicide detectives who, as a result of dealing with particularly brutal crimes, become a danger to themselves and are put under psychiatric observation.

I hear that the pilot is targeted for a production start by the end of the year in New York, where both Hawke and D’Onofrio live. The two actors are old friends and co-starred in the 2009 feature Staten Island together, wh…
