Now, here's an interesting cast: Brendan Fraser and Christina Hendricks will join a bit forgotten actors - Julia Stiles, Matt Dillon, Ed Harris and Kristen Scott Thomas in the new drama SECONDS OF PLEASURE a story that takes place on an airplane and connects the lives of people on the plane through vignettes. The film will be directed by Mike Figgis (LEAVING LAS VEGAS) from a script from Neil LaBute (THE WICKER MAN, THE SHAPE OF THINGS). The film will be shot in United Kingdom to be released in 2012.
Young Brit Aaron Johnson, who played an amateur super hero in KICKASS, is negotiating to take the role in the new film adaptation of Tolstoy's ANNA KARENINA. But don't get your hopes up, it probably won't have any depth having in mind that the famous Russian tragic character will be played by Keira Knightley. The film will be directed by Joe Wright who already worked with her in ATONEMENT, the film in which she was actually the weakest link. It's interesting that Jude Law is also rumored to appear in the film, possibly as Vronsky, but it's still not clear which characters will Aaron and he play.
Speaking of Aaron Johnson, he is also circling around SAVAGES, a new film by Oliver Stone in which he and Taylor Kitsch could play two young pot growers who run their business out of their Laguna Beach home. But jealous of the quality of their weed, a Mexican drug cartel kidnaps their best friend and forces the duo to work for the cartel.The best part is that Salma Hayek could play the matriarch of the cartel :) Olivia Wilde could play their kidnapped friend.
