Diaz says Gambit remake not like original...
It always happens, remake comes along, everyone involved leaps to say it's nothing like the original, although with a Coen Brothers film I have to say they might just be right for Gambit. Colin Firth is taking the role that Michael Caine played in the 1966 original and Cameron Diaz the role that Shirley MacLaine played. Diaz was asked by MTV if the film was different to the original and she said yes. Well of course she would, and led by a question too. The new version of the film will see Firth playing an art curator who is trying to sell a fake painting to a rich collector and as part of the plot he recruits Diaz to play a part in the con and then ends up falling for her, which threatens to destroy the plan.


Superman's mum found...
Diane Lane is set to play Superman's mum according to The Hollywood Reporter, well the Earth based one Martha Kent, in the new Superman film with Superman: Man of Steel being played by Henry Cavill.There's no official word on what role Kevin Costner will be playing if he's picked up, but he's certainly set to play his Dad isn't he?


Prometheus cast grows...
So we still don't know how much of an Alien film the no-Alien prequel Prometheus is, but we do know that there are some new cast members. The Daily Mail through Latino Review has some words from Ridley Scott himself, it seems that Idris Elba, Sean Harris and Kate Dickie have now joined the cast of Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron. Apparently the script had to be read by the actors at his production offices with all of them signing non-disclosure agreements, even when the script had to be sent to someone it was flown with a security guard who watched them read it and returned. Good cast though, even if we don't really know what the film is about, no really, we don't. Just pretend.


47 Ronin gains Japanese cast...
Hiroyuki Sanada, Kou Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano and Rinko Kikuchi have joined 47 Ronin according to Variety, a film which so far only had the decidedly non-Japanese Keanu Reeves. Directed by Carl Rinsch, the film will follow the Japanese legend of the 47 Ronin, Samurai warriors who seek revenge against the overlord who banished them. Well good on Universal for hiring some Japanese actors rather than filling it with Hollywood names.


Dante's Romeo & Juliet sounds like Twilight and Underworld...
Joe Dante is to make a film that is essentially Romeo & Juliet but with the two groups being werewolves and vampires according to Fangoria through AITH. Hold up a minute, haven't we seen this through everything from Underworld to Twilight? Well at least it's a horror comedy.


Bryce Dallas Howard to direct...
Bryce Dallas Howard is set to direct her first film called The Originals which she says is like a Breakfast Club for this generation, or her generation as she says in her quote through Showbiz411 and Collider. She says that her and her writing partner Dane Charbonneau have already written a role with Zoe Saldana in mind. The story will see a group of twenty year olds meet back up when they discover their former teacher is in a coma.
