HUGH JACKMAN, JON HAMM, VIGGO MORTENSEN COULD TAKE THE LEAD ROLE IN SF SAGA "DARK TOWER". 1ST PIC FROM "ICE AGE4: CONTINENTAL DRIFT". CHRISTINA HENDRICKS & OLIVIA MUNN IN "I DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT"

As you know one of the biggest future projects will be Ron Howard's adaptation of Stephen King's famous sf saga DARK TOWER which will be made both into films and TV show (3 films with a season of show between each). The story follows a Gunslinger Roland Deshain as he travels across a desolate and vaguely post-apocalyptic landscape in his quest for a black tower.
Portals along the way eventually allow contact with our own modern world. Howard spoke last week about the project and he has confirmed (kinda) that the actors who are being considered for the lead role include Hugh Jackman, Jon Hamm, Daniel Craig and Viggo Mortensen.

Here's a film for my ladies and pics for my boys :) Spicy girls Christina Hendricks and Olivia Munn have just joined I DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT,  a movie adaptation of the same book written by Allison Pearson. The comedy will have Sarah Jessica Parker as a high-powered finance type who's also the mother of two young children and trying to balance the many competing elements in her life. Christina and Olivia will play her friends. Male roles will go to Pierce Brosnan and Kelsey Grammer.

Ah, here's the first picture from the fourth part of HOLLYWOOD SPY's favourite animated saga of all times ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT. Following the amazing success of previous sequel  DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS which earned almost $1 billion in cinemas, CONTINENTAL DRIFT will hit cinemas in summer 2012. The first image shows the most beloved animated character ever Scrat, the sabretooth squirrel, and his infamous, constantly evasive, nut!

  3. Excited about Dark Tower; watched 1408 last night. My daughter's boyfriend, not familiar with Stephen King. We had been out running errands, one place had the address 1408. I had to introduce them ;-D

    Oh, I've never heard of 1408 but if it's by King it's probably great! :) How can you have a daughter who is dating when you are just 25 yourself? :))

    @Emily

  8. I hope Rio is a hit. Unless Blue Sky can pull off a major, non-Ice Age box office success and cultivate some diversity, more Ice Age films may be all we’ll get.

    RIO is super cute :) And I can't wait for BRAVE as well.

  11. Those are some interesting choices, but I worry about the success of the project because Ron's not too adept at dark films. He's too family drama. Who knows, he may rise to the occasion, but King is highly challenging and I would have preferred someone like Frank Darabont.

  12. Glad they're making a movie out of the Dark Tower series. But where's Viggo's picture? He'd be fine in it.

    Ice Age 4 looks so cute -- never thought about what a sabretooth squirrel would be like! Guess squirrels just love nuts no matter what epoch...! :)

  13. DEZMOND - Dark Tower sounds amazing. What a fun, new idea. I love it.

    As for Ice Age - I'm so excited for more of Sid The Sloth!!!

  14. Scrat IS a nut.
    Olivia Munn! Will she be wearing that outfit? Less is acceptable.

    yep, as someone who has never liked a single of Ron's movies I also doubt he is up to this challenge and I guess he got the job only because he's the producer as well.

    @Lisa
    actually I spent some time yesterday searching for an adequate picture of Viggo, but didn't find any, the man just doesn't like photo sessions :(

    @RaShelle
    ah, Sid is a charmer as well :)He was adorable with his maternal instincts in AGE OF DINOSAURS :)

    @Alex
    Well, judging from all the pics I've Googled last night with Olivia I'm guessing she always follows the rule LESS IS MORE in her outfits.
