ERIC BANA IS "ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER"! CLEANING AFTER MONSTERS AND ALIENS IN "MAINTENANCE". ALEX PETTYFER AS FORMULA ONE CHAMPION IN "THE STORY OF JAMES HUNT"!

It seems the rumors have been true: according to "MovieWeb"  Australian/Croatian actor Eric Bana is apparently the main candidate for the lead role in ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, Timur Bekmambetov's film adaptation of Seth Grahame Smith's book. Mixing vampires, history and politics, the film will see Eric Bana as the inglorious American president battling the undead in this retelling of Lincoln's secret diaries, which recount his mission to eradicate the world of vampires.

Dreamworks is planning another charming animated project: they will adapt comic book MAINTENANCE which brings a crazy story about two janitors who work at TerroMax, an evil scientist think tank. Their daily duties
include time machine repair and cleaning up after toxic spills and monsters while dealing with mad scientists, jet-packed cavemen, aliens and an attractive receptionist.

Young Alex Pettyfer, who is getting more and more popular and whom we will be watching as the modern beast in BEASTLY and as an alien on the run in I AM NUMBER FOUR, has just scored another role: he will play in another Dreamworks' project SHUNT: THE STORY OF JAMES HUNT, the film adaptation of the same novel, about the British race-car driver who took first place in the 1976 Formula One World Championships.

And I must announce the winners of HOLLYWOOD SPY's weekend giveaway: two copies of Brian Leaf's cool new book NAME THAT MOVIE!: A PAINLESS VOCABULARY BUILDER will go to our dear Vics and to our dear Jamie. Congrats to both of them, hope you will enjoy this lovely gift and thanks to everybody who participated!

  10. LOL@Emily thinking what I was thinking. Actually, I was thinking of my friends reproach to her little son: "Hands on top of the covers, please." ;p

    Vampire hunter... I guess it's time to get rid of them... Too many damn vampires. ;p <3

  11. Ah, Leigh, I just knew I would thrill my lovely ladies with that pic on this boring Monday :)))
    Yep, down with the vampires!

  12. Eric Bana needs to work on his beard.

    I guess that Alex's pockets are just too small for his hands ... or maybe his hands are very cold, or ...

  13. Looking forward to the Vampire Hunter movie. I need to read the book first.

  14. I didn't like bana that much until I saw Chopper and The other boleyn girl, and I think he did great in both; I've got good expectations for this movie :)

    And also - YAY! Thanks for the contest, I'm excited to beef up my movie vocab :) Congrats to Vics too :)

  15. @Lisa
    yep, there could be many different explanations for Alex's pic :))

    @Alex
    or maybe not, if you don't read it, the film won't be able to disappoint you :)

    @Jamie
    Jamie please send me your address, I've sent you an e-mail, but I think you haven't noticed it.

  16. DEZMOND - Eric Bana as Abe, the vampire Hunter - LOVE IT!!!
    As for the guy with his hands down his pants . . . ROFL. I have an 8yr old boy. It's funny to me. Thanks, Dezz. =D

  17. only 8-year-olds put their hands down their pants?!? I think men of all ages have a habit of doing it :) It's just one of favourite male pastimes :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. DEZMOND - Yes, men do, but as adults, most of the time, they're discreet. 8yr olds could care less. This pic made me think of my son. That's why it made me laugh. ;-D

  19. I agree, Bana needs better films (though I was okay with The Time Traveler's Wife..). I'd probably watch this vampire twist.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Surprised no ones complaining that Bana isn't American :) I think this is for Liam Neeson since he ain't doing that bio pic.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I, too, think the dude looks more silly than sexy with his hands down his pants. If there was somebody else standing behind him, with their hands down his pants...that would be a bit hotter.

  22. @RaShelle
    I know, RaShelle, I was just joking :) I think that the adult men go from scratching the front part openly as kids to scratching the behind part openly with no shame :)))

    @Kristin
    He was great in THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE although that film had a dreadful direction.

    @Jaccsy
    as far as I know Liam isn't American either :)))

    @Samantha
    ah, you ladies are just never satisfied :PPP
