Stalked: Hugh Jackman, Inglourious Basterds, Zack Snyder
Hugh Jackman has dumped Cleopatra.
Inglourious Basterds has a release date.
And Zack Snyder has found some owl voices.
Hugh Jackman has decided not to star, in the 3-D live action rock and roll musical Cleopatra. Steven Soderbergh had originally wanted Catherine Zeta Jones to play the lady herself, and Jackman to play Marc Antony. Looks like one of them won't be coming true, with scheduling commitments to blame. Still no confirmation on Zeta Jones, or Ray Winstone who could be playing Julius Caesar. Although in early December it was reported he was already onboard. Who knows what's going on. The news is from Coming Soon.
A release date has been pencilled for Inglourious Basterds. The date being mentioned is August 21st. Although the film may well be shown at Cannes next year in May, if Quentin Tarantino still wants to. The news is from Cinematical.
Forgetting the ongoing Watchmen debacle, Zack Snyder's next film will be Guardians of Ga'Hoole. The film is based on the children's books written by Kathryn Lasky. The animated film now has some voices attached to it. Hugh Jackman, Hugo Weaving, and Ryan Kwanten will be lending their dulcet tones. The news is from Jo Blo. If like me you haven't read the books the rough synopsis is below from IMDB:
Soren, a young barn owl, is kidnapped by owls of St. Aggie's, ostensibly an orphanage, where owlets are brainwashed into becoming soldiers. He and his new friends escape to the island of Ga'Hoole, to assist its noble, wise owls who fight the army being created by the wicked rulers of St. Aggie's.
