Robert Downey Jr talks Gravity and Sherlock Holmes 2

Posted by LiveFor on May 4, 2010

Robert Downey Jr. has confirmed to MTV that Alfonso Cuaron’s 3D sci-fi-thriller “Gravity” is his next immediate film.

Filming will take place this Summer in London and then he will move on to the Sherlock Holmes sequel in Autumn with Guy Ritchie. That will start off in London, but will move to Europe. “Yes, I think we’ll be abroad. A bit of Paris, a bit of Switzerland by the end, if I’m not mistaken.”

No news on whether Rachel McAdams will be back for the sequel. “It’s hard to say. Because Irene Adler only appeared in one of the stories of Doyle’s reservoir of activities. But we’ll find out quickly.”

Who do you think should play Moriarty?

Serena – Angelina Jolie and Darren Aronofsky may team up for thriller in the woods

Posted by LiveFor on March 1, 2010

Angelina Jolie and Darren Aronofsky are in talks to adapt Ron Rash’s 2008 period book – Serena: A Novel according to THR.

The story is set in the rugged mountains of 1929 North Carolina and follows a man named George Pemberton and his new bride, Serena, as they create a timber empire. Serena not only takes to the woods, but she also pushes her husband to commit more and more ruthless acts. When she learns she cannot bear a child, Serena sets out to murder the son her husband fathered illegitimately.

Sounds like a nice, cheerful tale! Joking aside, it is one of those stories that actors loves as it gives them a chance to go all out and do a great performance.

Jolie is currently filming The Tourist with Johnny Depp. She had dropped out of Wanted 2, which had supposedly killed the sequel although Universal are saying it is still go (not that difficult to continue without Jolie considering the fate of her character in the first on). She was meant to have signed up for the Alfonso Cuaron sci-fi film Gravity, but there are conflicting reports on whether she actually has and there is the old news that she was looking to star in an adaption of Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta novels.

What that all means is that I haven’t got a Scooby Doo about what she will be filming once The Tourist wraps up. Out of all of them I would like to see her star in Gravity, but if reports are true that she is no longer attached to that then Serena would be a good one to see.
Aronofsky has just finished filming Black Swan starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis so Serena could be his next one.
Which one of the rumoured projects would you like to see Jolie star in next? If it is Serena what actor would you like to see star opposite her?

Angelina Jolie to pull a Moon with Cuarón. Wanted 2 is no more

Posted by LiveFor on February 26, 2010

Wanted was a huge success for Universal. A great big messy film that was fun yet flawed, but could have been so much more. Obviously a sequel has been in the running for a while now and Angelina Jolie had been attached (despite what happened to her in the first film).

Now she has pulled out of the Timur Bekmambetovdirected sequel and so the studio have pulled the plug.

What will she do instead? Well she is currently filming The Tourist with Johnny Depp, but acording to Vulture she has signed up for Warner Bros.’ Gravity. This is an intriguing sounding space thriller to be directed by Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men) from a script he wrote with his 28-year-old son, Jonás.

The reason I mentioned Moon in the title is that, like Sam Rockwell in Duncan Jones lovely piece of sci-fi, Jolie would be alone on-screen for much of the movie, playing the sole surviving human member of a space mission, desperately trying to return home to Earth and her daughter.

/Film also mention Jolie would be playing the daughter, which is again similar to Moon with the main actor playing two parts. If that is true that would suggest the main character has been in suspended animation or travelled at almost light speed and the time dilation doo-dad effect means her daughter has aged.

I never really thought a sequel to Wanted was needed so not too bothered about that. Gravity sounds like a worthy move on Jolie’s part. Will give her a chance to act a bit more and Children of Men was stunning with a great look so Cuarón should make something great with this.
