Disney wants to make Emma Watson a princess. (Would Hermione Granger approve? Probably not.) Watson is in talks to play the lead role in the studio’s live-action remake of Cinderella. Speaking of Disney, Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez‘s upcoming movie, Spring Breakers, got a crazy new poster. It’s a detailed look at what’s inside a party girl’s backpack. There’s guns, drugs and lots of cash. All that and more below.
- Tom Hardy Joins Another Project: Tom Hardy has signed on to play an SAS soldier in Samarkand. His character suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, and we’ll follow him as he tries to become a functioning member of society. That Hardy, he’s always struggling to fit in. Source: Vulture
- Kurt Sutter Developing Lucas Stand: Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter has signed a deal with FX to develop Lucas Stand, an action/horror drama. The show focuses on a former special ops soldier who travels through space and time to kill demons. Sounds like a very gritty and odd job for a soldier! Hell on Wheels showrunner John Shiban will help him develop the show. Source: Vulture
- HBO Airing Louis C.K.’s Hour Special In Spring: HBO has announced that Louis C.K.’s Oh My God will premiere on April 13 at 10 p.m. The special (C.K.’s fifth) was filmed earlier this year at Phoenix’s Celebrity Theater. Source: Vulture
- New Mondo Posters: Unreality Magazine posted a gallery of a series of new Mondo Oscar movie posters. They commissioned a whole bunch of artists to do posters of the nominees this year, like Django Unchained, Wreck-It Ralph and Argo. Check them out.
- All About Boobs: Seth Macfarlane got us thinking about boobs (and a bunch of other things) while he was hosting the Oscars last Sunday. Earlier this week, The Celebrity Cafe posted a tops list of the Top 10 Boob Exposure Scenes in movies. Take a look at what made the list… if you dare.
- Emma Watson To Play Disney Princess: Emma Watson might be our next Cinderella. ComingSoon reports that she’s eyeing the title role in Disney’s live-action film. Kenneth Branagh is directing, and Cate Blanchett has already been cast as the wicked stepmother. Production is planned to start this fall in London.
- Bradley Cooper Boards Kokowaah: On the heels of his Oscar nomination, Bradley Cooper has signed on to star and possibly direct the English-language remake of Til Schweiger’s Kokowaah. The original script was written by Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair, and will be rewritten by Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph. Source: ComingSoon
- Ninja Turtles Pushed Back: Michael Bay‘s Ninja Turtles has been pushed back from May 16, 2014 to June 6. The latest news on the reboot was that Megan Fox was reuniting with her Transformers director to play April O’Neil. Paramount most likely made the switch to avoid crashing with any other movies. No one likes competition. Source: ComingSoon
- First Erased Trailer: In Erased, Aaron Eckhart stars as a former CIA officer who moves to Belgium with his teen daughter. There he becomes involved in a corporate conspiracy that would see him and his family dead. The film hits theaters on May 10. Check out the first trailer below:
- Grudge Match: Are you excited for that Rocky versus Raging Bull movie? Peter Segal‘s Grudge Match features Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro as aging boxing rivals. A photo of the two hit the web, and it reveals that both men are still pretty darn fit. Take a look:
- New Spring Breakers Poster: Promotion for Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers is a lot of fun. The trailers are packed with craziness and the posters have a Girls Gone Wild-vibe to them. In the latest poster, the publicists got a little more creative. The film starts hitting theaters on March 15th. Check it out:
