Back in April news came out that Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) was going the direct On the Road. This adaption has been in development hell for years, but things are moving forward. We knew Garrett Hedland (Tron Legacy) is going to play drifter Dean Moriarty and Sam Riley (Control) is down to play, Sal.
Now it looks as if Moriarty’s wife has been cast in the shape of Twilight’s Kristen Stewart.
She had this to say while talking to USA Today. “I am very much attached to a movie that has been trying to get made forever. Not that this is going to help it, but maybe I can just brag a little bit. I am super excited about it, too. I am about to play Marylou in On the Road. So that’s a big deal.”
Not sure if these are the right choices for the film, but that could just be because they don’t fit with the look of how I always imagined the character.
Still there is one good thing about the casting. It should make a whole new generation look into the works of Jack Kerouac and anything that gets people reading new things is cool in my book.
How do you feel about the casting news?

Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, The Green Hornet) is currently in talks to join Water for Elephants. This is adaptation of the Sara Gruen novel to be directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend).
If Waltz gets the role he will star alongside Robert Pattinson (Twilight) and Reese Witherspoon.
Deadline Hollywood says “Waltz will play the heavy in the Depression Era romantic triangle involving a veterinary medicine student (Pattinson) who joins a 2nd-rate travelling circus and falls for the star performer (Witherspoon). Waltz will play her husband, a dangerous paranoid schizophrenic animal trainer who is as mean to his wife as he is to the circus creatures.”
This role was originally down for Sean Penn to play, but as often happens looks as if he is no longer attached.
Certainly sounds like an interesting role and we all know Waltz can flip from calm to manic to just plain scary mad at the flip of a strudel!

Bryca Dallas Howard (Spider-Man 3, The Village) took over the role of Victoria from from Rachelle Lefevre in the next installment of everyone’s favourite sparkly vampire film series based on a book. FearNET had the image.
The new image shows Victoria (Howard) with her hands around Edward’s (Pattinson) head, preparing to kill him the old-fashioned way: by tearing his head clean off. Victoria’s boy-toy Riley (Xavier Samuel) is also present, restraining Edward who kneels in pain.
Twilight devotees will notice that nothing exactly like this happens in the book, although Edward does face off with the vengeful Victoria in the snow, so it seems as though screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has taken some creative liberties to raise the stakes in the third, and more suspenseful, film installment.
The film is due out on 30th June.

Opening 12 years, almost to the day, after his behemoth film “Titanic,” James Cameron’s 3D sci-fi spectacle “Avatar” drew a strong $27 million in its first day at the box office from 3,452 theaters according to Variety.
First day for ‘Avatar’ is the highest for a Twentieth Century Fox release opening outside the summer frame. Previous champ was 2006’s “Ice Age: The Meltdown” which took in $21.8 million.
Among all opening days which are Fridays in December, “Avatar” ranks behind Will Smith’s 2007 sci-fi tentpole “I Am Legend” which grossed $30.1 million. 2003’s “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King” continues to own the all-time opening day record in December with $34.5 million, however, that film unspooled on a Wednesday.
It’s quite possible that the east coast winter storms cut into the opening day figure for “Avatar” a bit. However, much like Cameron’s “Titanic,” “Avatar” is bound to sprout a fantastic set of legs based on word of mouth — a huge asset heading into the Christmas holiday, which falls on Friday. Immediately evident: the exit polls for ‘Avatar,’ both stateside and abroad, have been truly fantastic.
When “Titanic” was released on Dec. 19, 1997, it posted a first day gross of $8.7 million and an opening weekend of $28.6 million — figures which were respectable, but far from being records. However, with Christmas falling on a Saturday in 1997, “Titanic” saw boffo gains of 40% on its second Friday and 24% for its second weekend. “Titanic” finaled its domestic tally at $600.8 million.
The box office champ in terms of opening records back in 1997 was Steven Spielberg’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” which bowed over the Memorial Day frame that year with a first day record of $21.6 million and a three-day haul of $72.1 million according to Rentrak Theatrical.
Coming in second on Friday was Disney’s hand-drawn animated toon “The Princess and the Frog” which generated $3.4 million at 3,475, down 52% in its second Friday of wide release. Since bowing four weeks ago, “Princess” has accumulated an estimated domestic gross of $35.9 million.
Staying tough in third was Sandra Bullock’s football drama “The Blind Side” which counted $3.2 million at 3,407 in its fifth Friday ,down 33% with a domestic B.O. of $157.9 million.
Vying to counterprogram “Avatar,” Sony’s new comedy this weekend “Did You Hear About the Morgans” with Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker collected an estimated $2.4 million from 2,718 in fourth.
Summit Entertainment’s “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” slotted fifth with $1.4 million from 3,035, repping a 43% decline and a running domestic tally of $271.6 million.

Maria Bello and Michael Sheen have wrapped production on Beautiful Boy, an indie film directed by Shawn Ku. It has quite an eclectic cast as it also stars Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation), Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Dollhouse), Kyle Gallner, Austin Nichols and Meat Loaf (Fight Club) according to Variety.
Bello and Sheen play a married couple on the verge of separation when they are hit with the news their 18-year-old son committed a mass shooting at his college, before taking his own life.
The film, which just wrapped in L.A., marks the feature directing debut for Ku, who created a stir in Sundance for his unconventional musical short film “Pretty Dead Girl.”
Bello was recently nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for “Downloading Nancy,” and Sheen most recently starred in “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and “The Damned United.”
Sounds like an interesting yet harrowing tale and there are some cracking actors involved. Michael Sheen is always good as is Maria Bello (who seems to alternate between total sauciness as seen in A History of Violence to kid friendly The Mummy 3). Good to see Moon Bloodgood – pictured on the right – branching out from sci-fi such as Journeyman,Daybreak and Terminator Salvation).
