Stalked: Tony Scott, Tobey Maguire, Kathy Bates

Tony Scott could be Unstoppable.

Tobey Maguire wants to become a Formula 1 driver.

And Kathy Bates has joined The Blind Side.

Tony Scott may be directing Unstoppable. The unstoppable thing in questions, is a large train carrying a large cargo of combustible liquids and poisonous gas. The rail company has to try and stop the train from reaching a nearby city. The news is from The Hollywood Reporter.

Tobey Maguire is close to agreeing to produce and star in The Limit. The film will be based on a soon to be published book. The inspiration comes from Phil Hill, the American race car driver. He drove for Ferrari from 1959 - 1962, and in the 1961 season was in a contest with his team mate Wolfgang Von Tripps for the Championship. Maguire will play Phil Hill. The news is from Variety.

Kathy Bates is joining the cast of The Blind Side. The American football film, is based on the true story of Michael Oher. Despite spending time in various foster homes, and being homeless for some periods, he is now a top prospect for the NFL. He was taken in by a family, and is now at University of Mississippi. He is expected to be the first draft pick this year. Sandra Bullock is already playing the mother of the family who took him in. Bates will play a tutor employed by the family to help Oher. The news comes from Variety.



Finally, another film about F1. There's only been one so far to my knowledge and that was a corker, Grand Prix with James Garner and a host of drivers way back in 1966.
