Ah, this casting is becoming like a Spanish soap opera: although there were rumors that Ryan Gosling will join Johnny Depp in the remake of THE LONE RANGER which will focus more on Depp's Native American Tonto than on the ranger himself, the new rumors say that the title role could now actually end up in the hands of the charismatic and more and more popular Armie Hammer whom we've watched in THE SOCIAL NETWORK and who will also star in Tarsem's THE BROTHER'S GRIMM: SNOW WHITE as the prince charming. If Armie gets the role he will star in the Gore Verbinski directed remake.
SUMMER HEADLINES Since I know there are many of you who like PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and can't wait for the
premiere of ON STRANGER TIDES on May 20th, check out the posters featuring two main young stars of the film - charming Brit Sam Claflin and Astrid Berges Frisbey as Syrena the mermaid. *If you are anxiously waiting to see some of the big super hero blockbusters this summer, and there's an abundance of them this year, it might boost your interest to hear that Ryan Reynolds said that his GREEN LANTERN will have the epic scale of STAR WARS (when you check out the latest banner bellow featuring all the magnificent aliens from the film, it certainly does have a STAR WARS vibe),
while Chris Evans said that his CAPTAIN AMERICA will be more in tone of INDIANA JONES. And unlike the first part which is set in WW2, other CAPTAIN AMERICA sequels will be set in modern days.
Ah, so it's official - Ron Howard has signed Javier Bardem for the role of Roland Deschain in the film adaptation of Stephen King's complex sf saga THE DARK TOWER. I'm kinda sad, I
thought Viggo Mortensen or Hugh Jackman would have been much better in the role. Javier will take the lead role of a gunslinger who travels through an Old West-like landscape mixed with futuristic elements in search of the mythical Dark Tower to save civilization. Bardem has signed on to star in the first of the three planned films in the franchise which will also have two seasons of TV show in between second and third installment of the movie. The film should come out in 2013.
