Franco in talks for Akira?...
If rumours are true then a live action Akira is still a go with talk now of James Franco in discussions to take a leading role as Kaneda. The film is still set in America in New Manhattan, the Hughes Brothers are set to direct and AITH also tells us that Mark Fergus and Hawk Otsby rewrote the previous Gary Whitta script. There's a lot of The Book of Eli in there then. Nothing concrete, just more rumour.

Butler in How to Train Your Dragon sequel...
There you have it. Gerard Butler is returning for the sequel to How to Train Your Dragon (Filmstalker review). No real surprise. Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, and Kristen Wiig are all returning. The story from Empire and Collider.

Miller in Analog...
Wentworth Miller is set to star in a comedy drama called Analog which Mike Million is set to direct from his own 2005 Black Listed script about an introverted genius who tries to find love in a world that is becoming more and more digitally focused. I presume the key here is that he isn't a digital person, something that the Variety story misses out.

Butler surfing in Mavericks...
Gerard Butler has picked up another great role, and this one gets him outdoors. He's going to be playing Rick "Frosty" Hesson, the mentor of the Santa Cruz surfing legend Jay Moriarity who rode the treacherous Northern California breaks known as Mavericks with swells as big as five story buildings and survived. Deadline tells us that Curtis Hanson is directing the film.

Cruise and Hathaway in Rock of Ages...
Well Tom Cruise is apparently in final negotiations to join the cast of the film version of the Rock of Ages musical. Anne Hathaway, Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand are rumoured to be negotiating possible appearances along with him according to The Hollywood Reporter through Coming Soon. The Adam Shankman directed film sees two people meet and fall in love at the Sunset Strip club Rock of Ages, and their story is peppered with rock anthems from there on. I'm up for that, good choices all round I'd say.

Cotillard for Dark Knight Rises?...
More casting rumours for The Dark Knight Rises from The Hollywood Reporter through , and this one suggests that Marion Cotillard is in talks for the film for the second female lead. We already know that Anne Hathaway is Selina Kyle, who will she play?

Noyce directing Navy Seals film...
Philip Noyce is rumoured to be looking at directing an adaptation of the unpublished novel Firing Point which will be called Hunter Killer. The film follows an American submarine commander and a Navy SEAL tea who are out to rescue the Russian President from a military coup. According to Moviehole through FirstShowing, the film has been on the go since 2008 and has had Pierre Morel attached to it in the past.
