DiCaptain America?

DiCaptain America?

So has everyone recovered from Captain America getting cut from The Incredible Hulk? Well, there's some good news, unless you hate Leonardo DiCaprio. Apparently, Marvel wants Leo to play the title character in the upcoming Cap movie. At least, that's what the in-the-know Latinos at Latino Review are saying, and they seem to get the inside scoop on everything. I started to throw up in my mouth a little bit when I heard the news, but then I took another look at Leo. He's not boyish anymore, but he still looks wholesome, even optimistic most of the time. He might actually make a great Captain America. The only problem? He'll never do it.

Casting Cornucopia

Casting Cornucopia Lots of casting goodies have come out since yesterday. Like Oliver Twist looking for another helping of sweet, sweet gruel, step on up with your bowl in hand and get ready to feast on these:

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Amanda Peet has joined the cast of Roland Emmerich's 2012. She'll play the ex-wife to John Cusack's struggling writer. They, along with a few other survivors, will face the end of the world together--she with her new rich husband, he with a particularly chilly rejection letter from The New Yorker. Peet should feel right at home in this one, as there were probably many times during her stint on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip when she felt like she was waiting for the apocalypse.

A Dream Deferred: Jeannie Gets Her Silver Screen Wish

A Dream Deferred: Jeannie Gets Her Silver Screen Wish Another old TV show-turned feature length movie has managed to find a way out of development hell--at least for the moment. Try to contain your excitement. After languishing for years as an in-development project and on the heels of not-great Bewitched and The Dukes of Hazzard, I Dream of Jeannie has a new writer, energized producers and is back in active development. The producers are so energized in fact, that it's hard not to get a little excited for them.

Sandler Takes A Shortcut to Horror-ville

Sandler Takes A Shortcut to Horror-ville Seems like lately you can't swing a cat without hitting a new horror movie. (Watch, now someone will make a horror movie where the villain's weapon of choice is a cat he swings around like a lasso. Screw knives and chainsaws. Have you ever been on the wrong end of a pissed-off Siamese?) An editor once told me, "The worse the economy is, the more people flock to horror stories." Maybe it takes their minds off their problems, or helps to put things in perspective. Sure, variable interest rates suck, but at least they don't hack you into bits and wear your face like a Halloween mask. Adam Sandler seems to agree: He's just launched a new label called Scary Madison to produce genre projects, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

A Tale of Two Posters: Does <i>Zohan</i> Want to be More Like <i>Kung Fu Panda</i>?

I wonder if it means something that the poster for Kung Fu Panda looks so much like the poster for You Don't Mess With the Zohan.

Beware: This Film Is Not Yet Rated

Beware: This Film Is Not Yet Rated

You'll never believe it: There's a trailer out there that may not be very representative of an upcoming movie. You may sense a bit of sarcasm, but I once saw a TV spot for Fight Club that made it look like a romantic comedy (I'm serious, it's in the DVD extras) and suffice it to say I learned a big lesson that day. It has come out via Dark Horizons that it has probably happened again.

All The Casting News You Can Handle

John Waters is back in the director's chair and his casting remains as eclectic as his oeuvre. Parker Posey and Johnny Knoxville have signed up to star in the filmmaker's newest Christmas fare Fruitcake. The Hollywood Reporter (said today that "The plot is officially under wraps but is said to center on the title character, a boy named after his favorite dessert. He runs away from home during the holidays after he and his parents are caught shoplifting meat, then meets up with a runaway girl raised by two gay men and searching for her birth mother." Being that Fruitcake is a John Waters film, that sounds about right.

The X-Files: What To Believe?

by Tippi Blevins May 2, 2008 1:04 pm
<i>The X-Files</i>: What To Believe? As mentioned last month in the Moviefile, the new X-Files movie's subtitle is I Want To Believe. But don't be too quick to adopt that subtitle as your personal credo when it comes to how you approach rumors and speculation. In an interview posted at FilmBuffOnLine, X-Files film producer Frank Spotnitz is saying we shouldn't believe anything we read on the internet about the upcoming movie. He even spouts that old gem from the show: "Trust no one." Except, if we take Spotnitz's advice, we'd have to disbelieve what he's saying in this internet interview. So does that mean we should believe what we read on the internet? This is all getting more confusing than some of the franchise's plot lines.
