Dream House gains Rachel Weisz…
Rachel Weisz, talented and beautiful, has joined the equally graced cast of Daniel Craig and Naomi Watts in the thriller by Jim Sheridan called Dream House. The film tells the story of a man, played by Daniel Craig, who quits his job and takes his wife, played by Rachel Weisz, and his kids, not played by Naomi Watts, to a quaint town in New England. Unfortunately, and not like any film you've heard before, the house turns out to have been the location of a murder where the husband killed his wife and two children. Watts plays a friend of the murdered family. The story comes from Variety through AITH.


Tom Felton joins The Apparition…
Todd Lincoln's The Apparition has gained Tom Felton, better known for his role in Harry Potter as Draco Malfoy. He's joining Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan, Julianna Guill, Luke Pasqualino and Suzanne Ford in a film that is about a supernatural presence that appears after a college experiment - oujia board anyone? The story comes from ShockTillYouDrop.


Mesrine arrives in America…
Mesrine: Killer Instinct (Filmstalker review) and Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1 (Filmstalker review) are heading to the U.S. to deliver some damn good cinema to an audience much in need of something interesting. The films follow the reign of the infamous French gangster Jacques Mesrine, the first charting his rise to public enemy number one, and the second charting his life thereafter.

They are both great films, although the first is undoubtedly the better film, and I would urge you to try and see both close together so as not to lose the feeling. Vincent Cassel leads as Mesrine and delivers a fantastic performance, even better than normal, if that is truly possible.

The Playlist through 24 Frames per Second have the story and reveal that there's going to be a name change for the release, Public Enemy Number One: A Film in Two Parts, probably with a 'I' and 'II' after that, and the date is currently April 16th. Oh you are in for a treat.


Tim Robbins joins The Green Lantern…
Martin Campbell's The Green Lantern, something that still seems a little odd to say considering the director against the superhero film, has just gained a big name cast member, Tim Robbins. He's set to play the father of Dr. Hector Hammond, the villain of the film played by Peter Sarsgaard. The Green Lantern is played by Ryan Reynolds with Blake Lively playing the Lantern's girlfriend. The story comes from The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision.


The Heist Society adapted…
Hot on the heels of talking about another Thomas Crown Affair, still, comes the news that a teen heist novel called The Heist Society that's yet to be released is being adapted for film. It tells the story of a teenager whose family is a long line of cat burglars and thieves and she decides to break with tradition and tread an honest path. However her father is accused of stealing a mobster's art collection and his life is threatened, so she gathers a crew of teen thieves to steal the art back. Sounds like the core of Thunderbirds but in the world of the many heist films we've seen. The story comes from /Film through Pajiba.


Hugh Laurie returns to film for Oranges…
Oranges is a script that comes from Jay Reiss and Ian Helfer which was on the 2008 Hollywood Black List taking second place behind The Beaver, which is due soon and stars Mel Gibson, and ahead of the already released Inglourious Basterds (Filmstalker review). Now it's being produced by the strong independent producer Anthony Bregman and the rumour is that Hugh Laurie, now best known for his role in the television show House, is in talks to take the lead with Leighton Meester and Mila Kunis as possible leads for the female role. Not everyone who knows him now will know of his past career, but he starred in a number of films and was a successful comedian, writer, and actor coupling with Stephen Fry. L.A. Times has the story.


Amber Tamblyn joins 127 Hours…
Amber Tamblyn is teaming up with James Franco for Danny Boyle's next film, 127 Hours, the story of the mountain climber who was forced to amputate his own arm when he was trapped under a boulder atop a mountain. Franco takes the lead and Tamblyn plays his girlfriend according to Deadline Hollywood Daily through The Playlist.


Peter Bogdanovich writing and directing Turn of the Century…
Peter Bogdanovich, the excellent writer and director who has delivered The Last Picture Show, Paper Moon and Mask, is set to write and direct Turn of the Century, an adaptation of a novel which opens in a world during the early days of 2000 where BarbieWorld has opened in Vegas and Charles Manson's parole hearing is live on TV. The story comes from The Hollywood Reporter.


Hanna the teenage assassin cast…
Cate Blanchett has joined the cast of Hanna, the story of a teenage girl trained as a killer. Saoirse Ronan stars as the teenager killer with Blanchett taking the role of the high-level CIA agent trying to track her down, Eric Bana plays her father who has trained her to be the killer and is an ex-CIA operative. From the sounds of The Playlist overview of the script this is a teenage female Bourne story with Hanna on the run across the globe from the CIA agent.
