Danny McBride Joins Alien: Covenant

Many people complained about characters in Prometheus behaving stupidly, but it seems we ain't seen nothing yet. Danny McBride, star of Eastbound And Down and an integral part of the Rogen-Franco-Goldberg stoner comedy fraternity, is in early talks for a starring role in Alien: Covenant. If it happens he'll join the returning Michael Fassbender and new lead Katherine Waterston. But not Noomi Rapace.

There are no details at all so far about the role McBride would play, but the situation has apparently come about through director Ridley Scott and McBride bonding over their mutual love of film.

It's easy to make the obvious cracks about the hapless egocentric drug-addled sweary slacker pratfalling that McBride might bring to the Alien universe. But this could also be his opportunity to display a significant broadening of his range, in something like the way his fellow Rogenite Jonah Hill has done recently in Moneyball and The Wolf Of Wall Street.

Whatever the character, he'll somehow fit into a story that sees the crew of the colony ship Covenant heading for a remote planet at the edge of the galaxy. They discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world, the sole inhabitant of which is the android David (Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Alien: Covenant is set to start shooting in Australia next month for a 2017 release.

First Look At Rene Zellweger As Judy Garland

Renee Zellweger would be taking on the challenge of playing Judy Garland in a new biopic called, simply, Judy. If you wondered what she'd look like, you now have the chance.

Director Rupert Goold has now kicked off shooting the film in London, working from a script by The Crown's Tom Edge. The story is set in 1968 as Garland arrives in chilly, swinging London to perform at a sell-out run of her show. It's 30 years since she appeared in The Wizard Of Oz, and if her voice isn't quite the same, her intensity has grown.

She faces battles with her management and charms the musicians she works with, while also starting a romance with Mickey Deans, who will go on to be her fifth husband. Yet she's also haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood and struggling with the desire to be back home with her kids.

Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock and Michael Gambon are also in the cast, with no word yet on a release date.
