Stalked: Facebook film, Strangers sequel, Dannii Minogue in film
There's a film coming about the people who started up Facebook...
There's already a sequel coming to The Strangers...
The gorgeous Dannii Minogue is set to appear in a British spy thriller...
Aaron Sorkin is beginning research on writing a film about the founders of Facebook and the rise of the social networking site. However I'm unsure how much of it is going to be about the Facebook creators and the story of their rise, and how much is going to be about the odd stories from Facebook. As he says over in The Hollywood Reporter that he's looking for people's stories of using the site.
However all does not look well for him writing anything technical about the site, and he's going to have to get some help on that front as he already has in creating his profile for research.
“I figured a good first step in my preparation would be finding out what Facebook is, so I've started this page. (Actually it was started by my researcher, Ian Reichbach, because my grandmother has more Internet savvy than I do and she's been dead for 33 years.)”
Variety are reporting that there's a sequel underway for The Strangers already. Bryan Bertino is set to write the script, he wrote and directed the first film and he wrote and is directing another horror film, Alone. There's no word if he'll direct the sequel yet, but there is some thought that some characters from the original will return, it looks like it could be a franchise attempt. Watch out for The Getting to Know the Killers sequel.
Ananova has the news that the stunningly sexy Dannii Minogue is set to appear in a film alongside such names as Hugo Speer, Ewen MacIntosh and Sarah Jayne Dunn. Macintosh was Keith in the original The Office and Dunn is an equally lovely actress from the British popular soap Hollyoaks who recently had a walk on part in The Dark Knight (Filmstalker review). Minogue has acted a few times before, she's also been in the Australian soap Neighbours...yes, that was sarcasm. However she is gorgeous and rather striking. I'm in.
The film is called Vauxhall Crossed and is a spy thriller. Dannii Minogue (sigh) will play an MI6 agent called Rio Ruse and is a lab technician who saves a fellow agent, played by Speer, during a shoot out. For those that like such things, she'll be wielding a pump action shotgun, and probably pouting while sexily dressed too.
