UPDATED: Casting News – Yelchin in Fright Night, Harrison Ford in Cowboys and Aliens, Emily Blunt as Catwoman

Fright Night – Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) is in negotiations to star in “Fright Night,” DreamWorks’ remake of the cult 1985 vampire film. Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) is helming the new version, which sticks to the concept of a teen being convinced that his new neighbor is a vampire, although no one will believe him. – Heat Vision
Catwoman – Rumour has it that Emily Blunt passed on “Captain America” because she’s hoping to star as Selina Kyle in “Batman 3” accordingto Batman on Film — “if Chris Nolan uses the character,” the source notes. They stress that this is very much a rumour. I do think that Blunt would make a cracking Selina Kyle.
Cowboys and Aliens – Latino Review have another rumour saying that Harrison Ford could be joining Jon Favreau’s next comic book film, based on an anonymous tip indicating that “Ford was about to join a huge comic book movie to be directed by a director coming off a soon to be released huge comic book movie.”
Favreau did writer Twitter: “Some very cool Cowboys & Aliens casting news coming soon.” Take that however you wish.
UPDATE: “Please stop asking if Harrison Ford is in Cowboys & Aliens. Okay? He is,” wrote Favreau on Twitter. “Please don’t tell anybody.”
What do you think about the possible casting bits? I would love to see Ford back in a sci-fi kind of thing. He needs to make up geek points since the last Indy film.
