“I mean, he would, you know, in a scene like where he was sort of supposed to be charmed by me, he would suddenly be threatening to kill me, or like calling me like a lesbian hobbit, or you know, grabbing me on the back of my head.” – Anna Faris on Sacha Baron Cohen
De Niro gained fifty lbs for Raging Bull and Anna Faris grew out her armpit hair for The Dictator. Sounds like method acting to us. How far would you go to fit the role?
8 Promising Movies that still haven’t been released. Remember hearing about the video game Halo being turned into a movie? What ever happened to that? Turns out it’s still in development. See what other movies are in “development hell” or purgatory for that matter.
The Avengers 2 gets a green light. As if they even needed an announcement from Disney’s CEO Bob Iger. It appears the mega hit is officially coming out with a sequel. Wonder if they can possibly squeeze another A-lister into the star studded cast? Which actor would you like to see join the team?
Have you ever wondered what goes on aside from the screenings at Cannes? Well, now you may find out. Alec Baldwin is reportedly shooting a behind the scenes film at next week’s Cannes Film Festival. Let’s just hope it’s not Alec playing Words With Friends for an hour and a half.
Well, they sort of remade Fellini’s masterpiece 8 1/2 with the movie Nine. Please don’t tell us they’re going to attempt another remake. Yep. It seems the forgotten Juliette Lewis will star in a remake of Nights of Cabiria. (Sigh) What’s next, La Strada? La Dolce Vita?
