LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

Cate Blanchett Joins Sandra Bullock In An All Female Ocean's Eleven Film

Developing quietly in the least year or so, a plan for an all-female Ocean's Eleven -style heist movie has been bubbling away, with originator (and Hunger Games director) Gary Ross roping in Steven Soderbergh as a producer and Sandra Bullock signing on to star. Add a potential new name to the list, as The Playlist reports that Cate Blanchett is circling one of the other leads. Olivia Milch is currently credited as the writer for a film that would use the basic Ocean's concept of thieves pulling off a heist, but isn't planned as a direct remake of the film. So while Bullock and (if she signs on) Blanchett would be playing similar friends to George Clooney and Brad Pitt in the movies, they're not just gender-swapped photocopies. Ross has also sounded out Jennifer Lawrence as a possible addition, though it's looking like the schedule – with the film aiming to shoot later this year – won't work for her even if she were interested. Ross is in the director

Matt Damon To Star In Robert F Kennedy Biopic

Matt Damon To Star In Robert F Kennedy Biopic In this tough marketplace, if you want to make another movie about a complex historical figure like Robert F Kennedy, you'd better bring to the table an actor with chops and bankability to excite a financier. Matt Damon does both those things. I've just heard that a deal closed at New Regency for an RFK film that has Damon attached, with Gary Ross directing and Steven Knight scripting. Damon will wait to see the script before we know whether or not the project will really happen. The film will be based on the Evan Thomas biography His Life , which Landscape Entertainment’s Bob Cooper optioned and will produce with Ross and his Larger Than Life partner Alison Thomas. While Damon just played South African rugby star Francois Pienaar in Invictus, he has never played a real figure like Kennedy. The film will trace RFK's transformation from the younger brother in the shadow brother President John F Kennedy to a strong national le

Spider-Man Going To Get A Make Over For Next Film

Spider-Man Going To Get A Make Over The next Spider-Man film will be a reboot of the franchise, not a continuation of series Sam Raimi created back in 2002 — in a move similar to Batman Begins restarting the Batman franchise seven years after Batman and Robin underwhelmed fans and critics. This time around, the series will place Peter Parker in a more contemporary setting, as a teenager battling today’s issues. The decision to go with an origin story stemmed from Sony developing two Spidey projects simultaneously. According to studio insiders, Sony was working on both Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 and the new origin story from James Vanderbilt, who wrote Zodiac. The original plan was to keep the Spider-Man gang together for one last film in 2011 before rebooting the series in 2012. When it became clear that Raimi would not be able to make the summer 2011 release date planned for Spider-Man 4, the studio opted to scrap Spider-Man 4 altogether, and focus solely on the series reboot. Who will

Gary Ross To Write And Direct "Venom" Movie

Gary Ross To Write And Direct "Venom" Movie Looks like the first report of the writers of Zombieland were going to write the script for the new Venom movie, were way off base. Here is some news about the ongoing development of Venom. The relationship between Columbia Pictures and Gary Ross that began with his rewrite on “Spider-Man 4” is taking a “Venom”- ous turn. I am hearing that the studio is in talks with Ross to helm the Spidey - spinoff “Venom,” and rewrite the script. Ross will begin writing the script as soon as he completes the “Spider-Man” film. While Venom showed up in the last Spidey installment, the intention is to start from scratch. Topher Grace played him in the last picture but the role will likely be recast.
