Teasers: Howard, Swinton, AvP2, Scott Thomas, Schreiber, Wong

Here are a bunch of casting updates that I'll just lump into the one story. The most interesting is the confirmation of Ron Howard on the Frost/Nixon film, as well as James Wong helming the World War II horror The Watch.

From Production Weekly through Dark Horizons: Tilda Swinton is close to signing a deal to star alongside Cate Blanchett and Brad Pitt in David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Production Weekly through Coming Soon: The lovely Kirstin Scott Thomas has signed to play Lady Elizabeth in The Other Boleyn Girl, the historical drama of the Boleyn sisters. It already stars Scarlett Johansson, Eric Bana and Natalie Portman.

The Hollywood Reporter through Coming Soon: Leiv Schreiber has joined the cast of Mike Newell's Love in the Time of Cholera. The story is based on the award winning novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Variety through Coming Soon: James Wong has signed for more horror. The Watch is being produced by Matt Le Blanc and John Goldstone and is about a group of soldiers sent on a mission to battle a supernatural force and perhaps end World War II.

From Variety through Coming Soon: Ron Howard is confirmed for the Frost/Nixon film which we heard about last week.

From Variety through Coming Soon: Reiko Aylesworth and Steven Pasquale have been cast in the leads in the Alien versus Predator 2 film.

Anything catch your fancy? The Watch sounds interesting, as does Cholera...Damn that was a lot of linking!



You did well, Richard, but no, nothing caught my fancy :-)
