In the News: Emma Stone's new look and Will and Zach Team Up

  • You may think that the Spiderman prequel is ages away and it is.  But that doesn't stop the actors from getting into character.  Emma Stone has been spotted with her actual hair color, blonde, and that somehow makes it all the more real.  It may not have a name yet but this movie is happening.  What do we think about the hair? Yay or nay?
  • Speaking of the Spiderman prequel, the newest addition to the cast, Irrfan Khan is having a stellar week.  As if being named to Spiderman wasn't enough, Khan is also in talks with Ang Lee for The Life of Pi.  Reports are sort of conflicted as to which role he's up for, either Pi's father or the adult Pi.  Either way, it's win win.
  • Last year, no film impressed me as much as District 9.  Truly spectacular.  That's why I'm delighted to see that directer Neil Blomkamp and Sharlto Copley are reuniting for Elysium.  I love it when directors-actors find a good working relationship and pair up again to produce great movies. 
  • A few days ago, I posted that Hans Zimmer was the new composer on Superman: Man of Steel.  That, my friends, is a big fat rumor.  We should wish it were true.  But it's not happening yet.  Zimmer is composing for Chris Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises so, uhm, silver lining.  
  • Somewhere in the world, two guys had a conversation that went a little like this, "Dude, wouldn't it be cool if Will Ferrell and Zach Galifiniakis were in a movie together?" "Yeah, totally awesome!".  That conversation is now a reality.  Warner Bros. will be producing a new political comedy that pits Will and Zach against each other.  I don't know what to say except I'm going to talk about a film in which Leo finally shares the screen with Meryl Streep.  Make it happen, Hollywood, make it happen.  
  • And finally, the two actors who show a lot of promise, Mia Wasikowska and Aaron Johnson (Nowhere Boy) are joining Albert Nobbs which is being directed by Rodrigo Garcia.  Michael Gambon, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Janet McTeer and Gleen Close will be starring in the film as well.  In fact, Close will be reprising her award-winning role from the original Broadway play.
