Stalked: Anne Hathaway, Pierre Morel, Steven Spielberg, Sherlock Holmes
Anne Hathaway is in The Opposite of Love.
Pierre Morel is working with John Travolta.
Steven Spielberg has picked up the rights to Chocky.
And Rachel McAdams has joined Sherlock Holmes.
Anne Hathaway is to star in The Opposite of Love. She will play a lawyer, who is afraid of commitment. This leads to her rejecting her boyfriend who is ready to get married, her life then begins to unravel. Apparently it's kind of like Jerry Maguire. The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter.
Pierre Morel, who brought us Taken (Filmstalker review), is already filming From Paris with Love, starring John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. It's co-written by Luc Besson, who also worked on Taken. A young embassy worker and an American secret agent find themselves crossing paths while on a mission in Paris. The news is from Coming Soon.
The BBC say Steven Spielberg's Dreamworks has acquired the rights to the science fiction novel Chocky. The novel by John Wyndham, tells the story of a boy who people think has an imaginary friend. Turns out the friend is not imaginary and his mind has been taken over by an alien consciousness. Sounds ripe for the Spielberg treatment.
Rachel McAdams has joined Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes film. Robert Downey Jr is already playing the title character, with Mark Strong as the villain and Jude Law as Watson. The Hollywood Reporter says that McAdams will play a love interest of Sherlock Holmes.
