NEW ROLES FOR CATE BLANCHETT, KATE WINSLET, RACHEL WEISZ AND KATHERINE HEIGL

The four most beautiful and most talented Hollywood actresses have found themselves rather unusual new roles this week.
Rachel Weisz has joined thriller "Dream House" starring opposite Daniel Craig. The story follows a successful publisher (Craig) who quits his Gotham job and relocates his wife (Weisz) and two daughters to a quaint New England town, only to discover that their perfect new home was the murder scene of a mother and her two children.

Stunning Cate Blanchett has joined "Hanna", drama directed by Joe Wright with young Saoirse Ronan and Eric Bana, which centers on a 14-year-old Eastern European girl who has been raised by her father to be a cold-blooded killing machine.

Deeply profound Kate Winslet has joined a new film from Steven Soderbergh together with Jude Law, Marion Cotillard and Matt Damon. Named "Contagion" the movie centers on a deadly worldwide disease with several different storylines branching off of that major point.

Adorable Katherine Heigl will star in "One for the Money", which is based on the Janet Evanovich novel which spent 75 consecutive weeks on "USA Today's" bestseller list. The story follows Stephanie Plum, an unemployed lingerie buyer who becomes a bounty hunter to make ends meet.

  1. Okay, I'll admit it. I have a total chick-crush on Kate Winslet. She's amazing. If only I could look like her. sigh...

  2. Contagion sounds great! Kate's hot. So is Rachel.

  3. Sounds like some very interesting movies. And no remakes of 80s in the bunch. Wow.

  4. Love them all, but we'll see about the movies they chose. The Stephanie Plum books are fun, but I'm not sure they're cinematic.

  5. Rachel Weisz's stunningly beautiful, but not that talented and not a natural-born actress, if you ask me.
    Leaving Rachel aside, I'm excited about Cate and Kate's upcoming projects, because they both are my personal favorites and arguably one of the best actresses of the past 10 years!
    Katherine Heigl is definitely not in their (Cate and Kate's) league, but she's sweet, charming and always pleasant to watch! Congrets to all of them! :)

  6. I read that book Heigl is starring in. Cool. Loving to see Cate working with Joe and Saoirse and Rachel with Watts could be good and Kate and Marion!!!!!!!!! The only problem now is the waiting...

  7. I agree with nebular about Heigl, but not about Weisz. However, I am not sure about the Weisz project--it sounds pretty formulaic. Hasn't this been done? And for Craig? Boring? We'll see. Needs a really good script and director.

    Great news! Love these ladies!

  8. Ah, I see you all like our lovely Hollywood ladies :)

    I agree that Cate and Kate are the two most talented actresses of the new generation, and no other actress can reach their talent, beauty and profound charisma. Rachel is somewhere close to them, but isn't as versatile in choosing roles. Katherine is off course, not their level, she's just cute and sexy.

    The only problem I have is why are these actresses staring in such small, obscure and violent thrillers such are these upcoming projects. Why isn't Hollywood providing such extraordinary talents with huge female roles when they want to step out of their drama genre and star in something fun and commercial just for a change?? Why does Hollywood have big blockbuster roles only for men?

  9. Great questions...But we are all assuming these roles are provided for them instead of by choice. I don't know about Kate Winslett, but Cate Blanchett seems to hold her own off the screen. I get the feeling she makes her own choices. She played Bob Dylan and just finished a run on Broadway!

  10. I actually think Weisz is more versatile than Winslet, who plays the same role over and over again.

  11. I agree with you that Rachel is both sensual and innocent.
