PATRICK WILSON JOINS CHARLIZE THERON & MICHAEL FASSBENDER IN RIDLEY SCOTT'S "PROMETHEUS"! "BRIDGET JONES III" GREENLIT! MARK ROMANEK TO HELM NEW "CINDERELLA"! MADAGASCAR PENGUINS GETTING THEIR OWN FILM

 Well, this is certainly good news: according to "Collider", one of the most talented actors Patrick Wilson has joined the cast of Ridley Scott's sf thriller PROMETHEUS which is already filming and
is rather mysterious since nobody knows what it will be about, except that it will be connected in some way with Ridley's classic ALIEN and that it follows a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world. Patrick will join a stellar cast which includes Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Guy Pearce. As you know, Wilson is also preparing for the premiere of his TV show A GIFTED MAN over at CBS this September in which he will play a doctor who changes his arrogant ways after the visit of his dead wive's ghost.

 SHORT HOLLYWOOD HEADLINES
After they finish MADAGASCAR III which premieres in 2012, DreamWorks is also preparing a new animated film just with our
beloved MADAGASCAR PENGUINS Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico, which should hit theaters in 2014 with the script by the authors of MEGAMIND. As "Deadline" reports, talented Mark Romanek (ONE HOUR PHOTO) could collaborate with Disney in making a new version of CINDERELLA with a script from DEVIL WEARS PRADA scribes for which Disney paid a seven figure sum. In the new version the prince is set for a politically arranged marriage, until the evil plan is threatened when the prince meets Cinderella. The film will have lavish look of Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

As I announced earlier this Spring, Working Title Films has officially greenlit BRIDGET JONES III. As "Entertainment
Weekly" reports, after first two films from 2001 and 2004, we shall again enjoy the adventures of the single, 30-something British woman as she struggles with men, her weight and her work. Both Colin Firth and Hugh Grant are eager to join Renee Zellweger, and as you remember from my previous report, the film will now probably follow Bridget's unsuccessful attempts to get pregnant with Firth's Mark, after which she will make the huge mistake of going back to Grant's Daniel character. He will off course dump her, and Mark will again have to come to her rescue.
AND DON'T FORGET TO DROP BY TOMORROW SINCE SUNDAY IS THE TIME FOR HOLLYWOOD SPY'S HUGE SPOTLIGHT ON PETER JACKSON'S "THE HOBBIT"

  2. I do like the Bridget Jones movies. Firth and Grant can be very funny together.

    All that floor scrubbing has Cinderella looking quite robust. I doubt that's the Disney version you've shown there. :P

  3. Yay for Skipper and crew!! I wish it was coming out tomorrow. :)

    Is this Disney or porno Disney? That picture looks like Jenny McCarthy from her Playboy days.

    Oh Bridget Jones, how I love the screwball crap you do. LOL How many years ago was the last one? Can she really qualify as 30 something when Renee is older than me and both Colin and Hugh are 50 going on 51? ;)))Well at least they're keeping to the same cast and not turning the Bridget character over to a 20 something starlet and expect her to play older.

    yep, I knew my ladies would love them some Firth and Grant :)
    Yep, that's the Cinderella version my boys would like :)

    @Melsy
    it's Jenny from her FHM days :)
    Yep, Renee could probably be my mother by now :), but Hollywood makes everything possible, and since Renee and Hugh have non-existing careers why not return to their only hit? :)

  5. Guess I'd better get around to seeing the second Bridget Jones movie if there's a third one coming out. I agree with Melissa Bradley though -- surely all the principals are getting too long in the tooth now to credibly portray 30-somethings.

    ReplyDelete
  6. It's going to be hard to believe any of those actors is 30-something.

    I'm on board with the penguins though -- sooner the better.

    What's with Porno-ella?

  7. LMAO Dez, their only hit for sure. :) Ah the FHM days. Jenny still looks fantastic, I love her more and more as she gets older. She's so funny and brutally honest.

  8. I look forward to both Wilson endeavors ;D
    Is that Jenny; she will make a fantastic, zany Cinderella! I am thrilled another Bridget...what a fun romp that could be :D

  9. Just a note to say how much I enjoy your blog. 90% of the time, I'm checking out blogs of fellow writers... Dezmond, your HOLLYWOOD SPY is always exactly the break I need. Thank you & keep it up!

  10. cinderella became pretty hot, huh? x)

  11. Sheesh. Renee's metabolism is going to be given the ring around again? Eeek. I can hardly imagine what all that messing about with weight does to these women ... LOL. Yeah, okay, I'm on a diet, food and weight is on my brain lately ... or rather, my thighs. :o)

  12. @Debra
    who knows, maybe they will move them close to 40? :)

    @Mary
    well, sometimes I have to give a Pornoella to my boys as well, can't keep feeding only you gals with hunks and studs :)

    @Melsy
    well it is, I don't remember Renee from anything else and Hugh also didn't have any bigger hit beside that one :) Jenny is great, has a nice sense of humor and isn't emptyheaded as some other busty blonds from Hollywood :)

    Wilson is such a great guy, isn't he? He's the only thespian in USA if you ask me. Jenny won't be the lead actress, I just used her pic to illustrate the story :)

    @Robert
    glad yo hear that, Rob, that's basically the main point and goal of HOLLYWOOD SPY - to give its beloved readers some respite and some relaxation on a daily basis :)

  14. @Magixx
    well you get hot while scrubbing the floors :) that's why she had to get down into her underwear :)

    @Jessica
    yes, I wondered that myself. You have that among actors as well, Christian Bale had many phases in which he would loose or gain up to 60 pounds for a role. We've seen him less than 100 pounds thin in THE MECHANIC and then all muscly in BATMAN films ... can't be good for the organism.

    ReplyDelete
  15. ...not fond of the Bridget Jones saga, but there's just something so damn alluring about Zellweger that tends to draw a crowd...even with Jones's baby fat ;)

    Thanks Dez!

  16. I love the penguins! They can do Madagascar films forever.

  17. @El
    with me it's the other way around, I can stand and enjoy BRIDGET JONES films, but I don't really like Zellweger.
    Glad you enjoyed the news today, El

    @Diane
    Those penguins are the best animated creatures ever :)

  18. Dare I say I'm a fan of Bridget Jones. I'm overjoyed they are going to make another movie. Renee Zellweger is great in the role.

    ReplyDelete
  19. there's no shame to admit it, Dany boy, all of us love romcoms openly (like yours truly) or less openly (like most other moviefans) :))

    ReplyDelete
  20. It's coming to the point where I come here to check out photo stills more than the actual movie news. You certainly have an eye for images Dez.

  21. @Movies
    hehe , well, thanks :) When it comes to news, you must bare in mind that we don't get lots of interesting news every day, so I don't have a great choice all the time.

    @Come At Me Bro
    thanks!

  22. oooohhhh! love the cast and mystery behind the prometheus film!

    ReplyDelete
  23. three stunning actors in the cast, yes? Not sure we will survive seeing Charlize, Patrick and Fass My Benders in the same film without getting a heart attack :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. PROMETHEUS is by Ridley Scott and in the same sort of vein/universe as ALIEN? I'm sold.

    BJ3? Meh.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Prometheus will be about stealing fire from the gods.

  26. I don't no why, but I've never been able to get into anything played by Zellweger. Not so much her movies, but when whatever character she is playing is on screen I cringe a little inside ha ha.

    I'm really interested to see if Promethues can turn out to be something special and not just another generic sci-fi flick.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Josh
    I guessed you would be sold on that one :)

    @Budd
    exactly :)

    @Chris
    yep, Renee is the type of Keira and Natalie Portman - 50% of people can't stand them, and 50% like them, there's no middle :)
