Did Natalie Portman Pull A Quick One in Black Swan?

The ballerina who served as a dancing double for Natalie Portman’s Oscar-winnning role in Black Swan tells EW she has been the victim of a “cover-up” to mislead the public about how much dancing Portman actually did in the film. “ Of the full body shots, I would say 5 percent are Natalie ,” says Sarah Lane , 27, an American Ballet Theatre soloist who performed many of the film’s complicated dance sequences, allowing Portman’s face to be digitally grafted onto her body. “All the other shots are me.” Lane’s claim follows a March 23 L.A. Times article in which Portman’s fiancé and Black Swan choreographer Benjamin Millepied said Lane’s work in the film was far less significant. “There are articles now talking about her dance double [American Ballet Theatre dancer Sarah Lane] that are making it sound like [Lane] did a lot of the work, but really, she just did the footwork, and the fouettés, and one diagonal [phrase] in the studio,” he said. “Honestly, 85 percent of that movie is Nata

Armie Hammer Cast In Snow White. Is Saoirse Ronan Next?

Saoirse Ronan could be cast opposite Armie Hammer in Relativity's The Brothers Grimm: Snow White that's an revisionist adult retelling of the fairy tale from director Tarsem Singh. Armie Hammer, fresh off The Social Network, has closed a deal to play Prince Andrew Alcott in the pic. But Ronan (Atonement, and the upcoming Hanna ) is still only "in discussions" for the title role. Julia Roberts already has been cast. It's worth noting that Relativity plans to be in production first for a June 29th, 2012, release before Universal's Snow White And The Huntsman starring Twilight saga superstar Kristen Stewart gets going and comes out December 21, 2012. Supposedly, Viggo Mortensen is shaky in that version. Relativity Media has closed a deal with The Social Network breakthrough star Armie Hammer to play Prince Andrew Alcott in its upcoming untitled Snow White feature, based on the Brothers Grimm story, directed by Tarsem Singh (Immortals, The Cell).

The Bourne Legacy- Who's Going To Be The Leading Man?

The young male Role To Die For at the moment is the lead in The Bourne Legacy , the Bourne Identity spinoff film that will be directed for Universal by Tony Gilroy. The field is narrowing, and I'm told that the following are set so far to test: Joel Edgerton (The Thing), Dominic Cooper (Captain America), Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) and Luke Evans (The Amateur American). There could be another name or two ( Logan Marshall-Green comes up as speculation), but that's who'll test first week of April. Now the choice could always come from an actor who doesn't test. Among the established names in the mix has been Shia LaBeouf (will not test, per insiders) and Battleship's Taylor Kitsch (has met with Gilroy and is a possibility). I don't think the studio feels this needs a big star. It's hard to find a better branded movie, and while it's not Matt Damon starring, Gilroy's writing work has provided the spine for the original series. That gives this

Will David Fincher Direct Angelina Jolie In Cleopatra?

What has happened with Sony Pictures' plans to mount an exciting new biopic of Cleopatra , with Angelina Jolie attached as the Egyptian queen, based on Stacy Schiff's bestselling book Cleopatra: A Life ? I'm told the director conversation right now is with David Fincher , who just got a Best Director Oscar nomination working with Cleopatra producer Scott Rudin, and who is working with Rudin on the Stieg Larsson novel adaptation The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo , also at Sony Pictures. I spoke to James Cameron in December and he let me know that he was not doing the film. until 20th Century Fox stepped up and got him to commit instead to two Avatar sequels. After that, speculation centered around Paul Greengrass, who wound up instead directing his own script, Memphis, about the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., for Universal, also with Rudin producing. It's not surprising that the top directors in town are after this gig. As Rudin has described it, this is t

Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth.
