Mad Max 4 – Teresa Palmer could me the lady in if. At least Jay Baruchel thinks so

Posted by LiveFor on January 17, 2010

Teresa Palmer is to play a leading role in George Miller’s hugely anticipated fourth Mad Max film Fury Road after her co-star in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice let details slip

Actor Jay Baruchel told reporters interviewing him for the new Dreamworks film How To Train Your Dragon that Palmer, who splits her time between Australia and Hollywood, was preparing for a gruelling shoot on the new Mad Max episode.

“She gets to work with him, and she’s (going to be) doing Mad Max 4 with Miller,” Baruchel said.

The actor, who counts Palmer as a very good friend after working with her on the Sorcerer film, said he didn’t know the character’s exact name, but believed it was the female lead.

“She’s the main chick in Fury Road,” he said.

“She’s going to be there for over a year. It’s really, really cool.”

It is not known if Palmer will replace or star with Charlize Theron, who signed on to the project last October. British actor Tom Hardy will play Max.

Miller previously cast Palmer (Bedtime Stories) and Baruchel (Tropic Thunder) as villains in his aborted 2008 superhero film Justice League of America.

The mammoth Mad Max production is scheduled to shoot for 30 weeks this year in and around Broken Hill.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice – Trailer for Nic Cage Disney film

Posted by LiveFor on December 9, 2009

Not sure if this is better or worse than I thought it was going to look.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Jon Turteltaub, the creators of the National Treasure franchise, present THE SORCERERS APPRENTICE — an innovative and epic comedy adventure about a sorcerer and his hapless apprentice who are swept into the center of an ancient conflict between good and evil. Balthazar Blake (NICOLAS CAGE) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (ALFRED MOLINA). Balthazar cant do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (JAY BARUCHEL), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. Itll take all the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes THE SORCERERS APPRENTICE.

What did you think of that?

Nicolas Cage has left The Green Hornet but The Hungry Rabbit Jumps

Posted by LiveFor on September 9, 2009

cageAccording to Heat Vision, Nicolas Cage has bowed out of playing the villain in Columbia Pictures The Green Hornet.

The film is being helmed by Michel Gondry.

It seems the actor and the studio couldn’t come to terms on the actor’s deal. Columbia is currently looking for a replacement.

The Green Hornet seems to be plagued with changes in cast in crew. First Stephen Chow was going to be Kato, then direct it, then not direct it, then he left it completely. Now this with Cage. A bit of a shame really as it would be good to see Cage as a bad guy again. His manic tics, shouting, pointing and furrowed brow could have worked quite well for this film.

The film just started shooting in Los Angeles and no scenes have been shot that contained Cage’s character.

Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz and Jay Chou star in this film.

However, as well as Kick-Ass, Drive Angry and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Cage has also signed onto The Hungry Rabbit Jumps.

Heat Vision blog reports on the film. Cage is “a man whose wife is the victim of a brutal crime. He subsequently becomes entangled with an underground vigilante organization.”

This one will be directed by Roger Donaldson (Thirteen Days, The Bounty, The Bank Job).

Nicolas Cage to be the big bad in The Green Hornet

Posted by LiveFor on July 21, 2009

Stephen Chow is out so they are looking for a new Kato. Seth Rogen has been getting in shape to play the titular hero and Cameron Diaz was recently announced to star in the Michel Gondry directed film that may be funny, may be dramatic, may be whatever as they are still unsure what direction to take the film in.

Now Variety announced that Nicolas Cage – he of the pointing, shouting, twitching and variable hair – is in the early stages of playing the Gangster Villain of the piece.

I know in the past I have given the Cagester some stick, but I do like him. It is just that lately he has made some naff decisions with regards scripts and the way to play the characters he portrays. He seems to have been just going through the motions and become a parody of his former self.

Maybe, just maybe, with The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and now this he may get himself back on the cool map. All depends on the length of his hair when he plays the part. I really must write up my theory on Cage’s hair length versus the quality of his films.

Do you think Cage will be a good bad guy in the Green Hornet? Should he play it loud and crazy or quiet and subtle?

Photos of Nic Cage and Monica Belluci in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Posted by LiveFor on June 17, 2009

Not sure what is happening in the photo above, but it could be a huge spoiler as it looks like typical shot of the hero holding a loved one who is in the process of dying while whispering their love or alternatively he’s holding a villain who saw the error of their ways and is saying how sorry they are. Either way Monica Belluci is gorgeous.

Jay & Seth vs The Apocalypse

Posted by LiveFor on June 12, 2009

Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse, was an Internet short scripted by Seth Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg (“Superbad”) and co-starring Jay Baruchel. The idea was to put the so-called trailer online and build interest for a feature film (the trailer is below)

It looks as if the idea worked as Mandate Pictures secured the rights and started making plans to bring “Jay and Seth” to the big screen in January last year.

MTV News spoke with Baruchel on the set of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and asked him for an update

“They’re working on the [‘Jay and Seth’] script right now,” said Baruchel. “All the concepts are there, all the beats are there, the treatment is there and a movie with us in it—we’ll improvise half the thing anyway, so it doesn’t matter.”

“‘Jay and Seth’ will at the very least happen in the next year and a half for sure,” he added. “Seth and Evan are working on The Green Hornet right now, and that’s just a big, massive undertaking that’s taking up all their time and effort.”

“The minute [‘Hornet’] is finished, we go into production on one of two things,” Baruchel said. “We’ll either do ‘Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse’ or we’ll do this hockey movie that Evan and I wrote called ‘The Goon.’”

Jay & Seth sounds and looks like it could be quite a cool comedy. It’s about two friends stuck together in an apartment after the end of the world.

When the Green Hornet is complete what film do you want them to work on next – The Goon of Jay & Seth?

Pirates of the Caribbean 4 before The Lone Ranger

Posted by LiveFor on June 11, 2009

Jerry Bruckheimer who is currently working on The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time spoke to Coming Soon about the Disney films The Lone Ranger and Pirates of the Caribbean 4. Johnny Depp will be back as Captain Jack and is also meant to be playing Tonto

It looks as if Disney are focused on getting the next installement of “Pirates” sorted out.

“It’s a great franchise for them and for us, too,” said Bruckheimer. “A beloved character and Johnny’s really excited about coming back to Captain Jack. He certainly is interested in Tonto, but Disney’s priority is to get ‘Pirates’ made first. You never know what’s going to happen, but they would like it.”

It makes sense for Disney to focus on a new Pirates movie. It is an almost guaranteed money maker so they will want to keep on mining that for all it is worth. I hope they take it back to the simpler kind of tale like the first film. It also looks as if Depp will be the only main star returning.

Bruckheimer shared that the original writers, Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot, were “writing ‘Pirates’ as we speak,” and he said it was “funny” and a “whole new way of going” although he wouldn’t share more than that.

Since Gore Verbinski recently announced that he may not direct a movie based on the video game BioShock, Bruckheimer was aked if there was a chance he might return for a fourth movie. “You never know,” he admitted. “He created the franchise so we’d love to have him back, but it’s kind of up to him.”

Bruckheimer was then asked about what was happening with The Lone Ranger as, apart from Depp, no casting for the lead character has been announced (although Matthew McConaughey had been rumoured). “Wait until they got a director and Disney says to go make the movie.” This means previous rumours that Prince of Persia director Mike Newell was in talks to direct the movie are untrue. “We don’t have a director yet. He’s too busy on ‘Prince of Persia’ right now,” Bruckheimer confirmed.

Just so you know this is a fan made trailer.

What do you want to see in a new Pirates of the Caribbean film? Will it be the rumoured quest for the fountain of youth? Who should direct The Lone Ranger film and who would be best to play that masked man?

Footage of Cage filming The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Posted by LiveFor on June 10, 2009

I recently posted some footage of Afred Molina and Monica Belluci filming in New York. Now the excellent chaps over at Hey U Guys sent me this footage of Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel filming the live action version of Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice coming in 2010. It was just off of Times Square on 7th Avenue.

There also seems to be a thing developing for the Sorcerer’s in the film (Cage and Molina) to be sat in cars with their apprentice (Baruchel and Toby Kebbell) as these photos show.

Not sure why but I’m getting a good feeling about this film. It could be the one that breaks Cage’s current run of not very good films.
