Cameron Diaz has been offered and is apparently in early talks for the female lead role in The Green Hornet for Sony Pictures says Entertainment Weekly. Michel Gondry is set to direct the film based on a script by actor/comedian Seth Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg.
Gary Ross (Dave, Big, Seabiscuit, Pleasantville) is re-writing the script for Spider-Man 4 says Variety. James Vanderbilt penned the original script which was then rewritten by David Lindsay-Abaire. The project will go into production early next year for release May 2011.
MTV Splashpage translates a report from omelete.com in which Edgar Wright reveals he is still quite interested in making an Ant-Man film. He completed work on the first draft before Scott Pilgrim vs. the World built steam. “I’m very happy with the first draft and we need to get back into business,” he tells Omelete.
Hope Davis is set to play former First Lady and current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in HBO Films/BBC Films’ The Special Relationship says The Hollywood Reporter. The story chronicles the unique and sometimes turbulent political relationship between newly installed British Prime Minister Tony Blair (Michael Sheen) and U.S. President Bill Clinton (Dennis Quaid) in the late 1990s. Julianne Moore was originally set to play Hillary but has since pulled out due to a scheduling conflict with The Kids Are All Right.
Michael Moore’s new global financial crisis documentary has now got a name – Capitalism: A Love Story reports Variety. The film takes a look at “the disastrous impact that corporate dominance and out-of-control profit motives have on the lives of Americans and citizens of the world.” The film hits theaters on October 2nd.
In a story from The Hollywood Reporter Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk will be co-starring in Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. The film, directed by Eli Craig, is being called “a genre-bending indie horror comedy.” Labine will play the role of Dale and Tudyk will be Tucker. These characters are two happy go lucky hillbillies who are mistakenly accused of being killers. Also starring in the film is Katrina Bowen (30 Rock).
100 Bullets creator Brian Azzarello teases MTV Splashpage with the possibility of a television series or movie? “That’s all I’ll say. Television … or maybe something that’s not just TV,” he quickly said.
