BREAKING NEWS... Mel Gibson won't be appearing in The Hangover Part II despite web reports he'd play a tattoo artist in the Todd Phillips-directed pic. Warner Bros and its financing partner Legendary Pictures released a statement from Phillips. "I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of Jeff Robinov and his team. But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew," Phillips said.

The Hobbit Casting Announced!
Originally posted by Inactive User
Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Rob Kazinsky, Aidan Turner, Graham McTavish, John Callen, Stephen Hunter, Mark Hadlow and Peter Hambleton have joined the ensemble cast of The Hobbit, it was jointly announced today by Toby Emmerich, President and Chief Operating Officer, New Line Cinema; Alan Horn, President and Chief Operating Officer, Warner Bros.; Steve Cooper, co-Chief Executive Officer of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., and Peter Jackson.

Since The Hobbit films received a green light on October 15, pre-production has been in full swing. Set for release in December, 2012 and December, 2013, we can confirm that Martin Freeman (The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Hot Fuzz) will play Bilbo Baggins, the hero of the story. Richard Armitage (UK TV's "MI-5" and soon to appear in Captain America: The First Avenger) is set to play Thorin Oakenshield, the leader of the Company of Dwarves which sets off to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from a thieving dragon.

"Despite the various rumors and speculation surrounding this role, there has only ever been one Bilbo Baggins for us," says Peter Jackson. "There are a few times in your career when you come across an actor who you know was born to play a role, but that was the case as soon as I met Martin. He is intelligent, funny, surprising and brave - exactly like Bilbo and I feel incredibly proud to be able to announce that he is our Hobbit."

He adds: "Richard is one of the most exciting and dynamic actors working on screen today and we know he is going to make an amazing Thorin Oakensheild. We cannot wait to start this adventure with him and feel very lucky that one of the most beloved characters in Middle-earth is in such good hands."

Rounding out the Company of Dwarves are Aidan Turner (TV's "Being Human") and Rob Kazinsky (TVs "EastEnders") who play Kili and Fili, respectively. Jackson comments, "Rob is an extremely talented young actor with a huge career in front of him, I'm thrilled that he has agreed to take on the role of Fili. Besides his talent as an actor, Rob is also a champion sword fighter; I'm looking forward to seeing the damage he can do to a horde of marauding Goblins!" He continues, "Adian is a wonderfully gifted young actor who hails from Ireland. I'm sure he will bring enormous heart and humor to the role of Kili."

The remaining dwarves will be played by Graham McTavish (Secretariat and TV's "24") as Dwalin; John Callen (TV's "Power Rangers Jungle Fury") as Oin; Stephen Hunter (TV's "All Saints") as Bombur; Mark Hadlow (King Kong) as Dori; and Peter Hambleton (TV's "The Strip") as Gloin.

Jackson notes, "Graham is a terrific actor, with a great depth of experience, which I know he will bring to the role of "Dwalin. I have worked with Mark Hadlow on many projects; he is a fantastic actor. I am thrilled to be working with both of them on these movies. He adds, "I am also proud to announce the casting of New Zealand actors as Peter Hambleton, John Callen and Stephen Hunter. Fran and I know that they will bring great depth and talent to our Company of Dwarves."

The two "The Hobbit" films are being co-produced by New Line Cinema and MGM, with New Line managing production, Warner Bros Pictures handling domestic distribution and MGM distributing internationally. Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Carolynne Cunningham are producing the films, with Phillipa Boyens serving as co-producer and Ken Kamins as executive producer.

James Cameron is returning to Pandora for an extended stay, inking a deal with 20th Century Fox to direct a sequel and three-quel to "Avatar." Those two pics will be his next projects.

Deal was confirmed by Fox Filmed Entertainment chairmen Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman.

Cameron and Fox are eyeing a December 2014 release for the tentatively titled "Avatar 2," and a December 2015 release for "Avatar 3.".

Cameron will begin working on the scripts for the two films early next year. He hopes to commence production later in 2011, but won't decide whether he'll shoot them back-to-back until he finishes writing.
"In the second and third films, which will be self-contained stories that also fulfill a greater story arc, we will not back off the throttle of 'Avatar's' visual and emotional horsepower, and will continue to explore its themes and characters, which touched the hearts of audiences in all cultures around the world," Cameron said. "I'm looking forward to returning to Pandora, a world where our imaginations can run wild."

In an interview with Hero Complex, Christopher Nolan revealed that the title for his third Batman movie will be The Dark Knight Rises. He added that the villain "won't be the Riddler."

"We'll use many of the same characters as we have all along, and we'll be introducing some new ones," Nolan said cryptically. He also said that the studio has agreed with him not to shoot the film in 3D.

The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled for a July 20, 2012 release.

Martin Sheen is joining the Marc Webb-directed 3D Spider-Man movie, playing the role of Uncle Ben. He joins Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans, who were set earlier in the Sony Pictures Entertainment film that begins production in December. Uncle Ben, who raised Peter Parker along with his wife Mae, doesn't last long. That's no surprise to fans of the comic or the original film series, who watched Uncle Ben get killed by a thief whom Parker could have stopped with his new-found superpowers, but let escape. Sheen has a longer run in The Way, the crowd-pleasing film directed by his son Emilio Estevez that made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival and is still in the process of being set up for distribution.

I'm telling you... Zac Efron is a good actor and I bet we'll be talking about him like we do Leo, Pitt, Depp, Penn, etc in 10 years. As long as he gets the chance, that is.
November 06, 2010 @ 13:19:25
Possibly, but it's Akira; you just don't desecrate something like that.

the only way an akira live action film would work is if they cast kanye as tetsuosmokeyface

Fuck that. If you choose shitty roles, you're a shitty actor. He does not deserve this opportunity.

i think morgan freeman isn't the great of an actor
November 09, 2010 @ 11:46:30
all i can say is that this americanized version of akira is going to be very odd.

dragonball evolution odd or speed racer odd?

dragonball evolution odd or speed racer odd?

Both were terrible so I dunno.
November 10, 2010 @ 09:31:56
this whole fucking adaptation of akira is a failure from the start. they can make some cool eye-candy sequences, but this movie WILL NOT be akira. just let it be sahn, the original (manga and anime) were dope
November 10, 2010 @ 11:48:18
Both were terrible so I dunno.

speed racer wasn't terrible. it was more... strange.

dragonball evolution odd or speed racer odd?

well,dragonball evolution sucked because of many different factors.first,they used C list actors,they completely RAPED the storyline,and the special effects were trash.

with this akira adaptation,it sounds like theyre going for good actors,and the effects will most likely be on point,but the whole story seems like it'll have a lingering odd feeling just because its americanized.that,and the fact that WB is saying that its going to be a 2 part film,which is odd in exactly are they going to separate the films? most of akiras action comes from the latter parts of the film,which is what im sure many people are looking forward to.i really dont know how i feel about this.

It’s the franchise that saw blonde Kirsten Dunst dye her hair red to play MJ; redheaded Bryce Dallas Howard go blonde to play Gwen Stacy; and now famous redhead Emma Stone revert to her natural golden locks to give Stacy another go around. So – can you guess who the brunette Zooey Deschanel has been tipped to play in the next Spider-movie?

According to Showbiz Spy, who have a rather patchy record, Spider-Man director Webb is looking to reteam Deschanel after their MPDG max-out on 500 Days of Summer. Going against the trend, however, this would mean Webb is looking to cast a dark-haired actress as a dark-haired character – J Jonah Jameson’s PA, Betty Brant, the character who was previously played by Elizabeth Banks… in a wig.

Depending on how they decide to play this, Brant could be a temporary love-interest for Peter Parker – she certainly was in certain comics at certain times – but I’m not expecting it.
