On the Road – Kristen Stewart joins the adaption of Jack Kerouac’s classis

Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2010

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?

The Rum Diary – Johnny Depp’s next Hunter S Thompson film could be at Cannes

Posted by LiveFor on April 8, 2010

I am really looking forward to seeing The Rum Diary. Been ages since we heard any movement on it but looks like we’ll be seeing it soon.

Nina Saxon Design, one of the entertainment industry’s leading design production studios, specializing in main and end titles, title sequences, and animated motion graphics logos for major motion pictures, television movies and TV programs, and entertainment production companies, has completed the main title design sequences for one upcoming, and two recent, high profile feature films. The announcement was made by the company’s president, Nina Saxon, widely acknowledged for close to 30 years as one of Hollywood’s most accomplished and successful title designers.

Nina Saxon Design has completed the main title sequence for the GK Films release “The Rum Diary,” starring Johnny Depp, Amber Heard and Aaron Eckhart, based on a novel by Hunter S. Thompson. That film, from producer Graham King, is currently seeking distribution at the Cannes Film Festival. “The Rum Diary,” directed by Bruce Robinson (who also wrote the screenplay), depicts the story of Paul Kemp (Depp), a freelance journalist who finds himself at a critical turning point in his life while writing for a run-down newspaper in the Caribbean.

Regarding her title design projects, Saxon says, “I see my work as providing an introduction to a film that sets both an artistic and a thematic tone. When I do my job well, the audience is involved with the film, before the credits have even finished.”

Nina Saxon Design also completed the entire opening sequence for the recent film “The Yellow Handkerchief,” for director Udayan Prasad and producer Arthur Cohn. That film, which stars William Hurt, Maria Bello, and Kristen Stewart, presents the story of a road trip through Louisiana, which transforms three strangers, who were originally brought together by their respective feelings of loneliness.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on March 11, 2010

Oh the angst, the pouting, the men with no tops on, the pouting, the lipstick and eyeliner on Robert Pattinson, the perpetual look of puzzlement on Taylor Lautner’s face. Oh the horror.

Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between Edward and Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.

Bella my solution to your important decision is just one word – Threesome.

Can someone get me the number for Blade or the Monster Squad?

Eclipse opens on June 30, 2010.

The Runaways – New Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on March 5, 2010

Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning star in this music-fueled story of the ground-breaking, all girl, teenage rock band of the 1970s: The Runaways. The film follows two friends, Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, as they rise from rebellious Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. Joan and Cherie fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley, played by Michael Shannon, who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself—and so do its two leads: Joan is the band’s pure rock ‘n’ roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten. Written and directed by Floria Sigismondi, the film chronicles Joan and Cherie’s tumultuous relationship on and off stage, as the band starts to break out.

Some more fantastic photos by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair. These are all up and coming stars of the future. The Vanity Fair article gives a run down on each of the actresses, but my question is which of them will be huge stars and who will disappear?
From the left – Carey Mulligan (An Education, Doctor Who, Wall Street 2), Kristen Stewart (Twilight, The Runaways), Abbie Cornish (Bright Star), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland), Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia! Chloe, Dear John), Rebecca Hall (Frost/Nixon), Emma Stone (Superbad, Zombieland), Evan Rachel Wood (The Wrestler), and Anna Kendrick (Up In The Air, Scott Pilgrim vs The World).
