INSPIRING TRAILER FOR BRITISH FILM "WILL" WITH DAMIAN LEWIS! MICHAEL FASSBENDER IN "12 YEARS A SLAVE"! JIM CARREY & STEVE CARELL IN "BURT WONDERSTONE"! BEN STILLER IN "RENTAGHOST"

As "MovieWeb" reports, popular comedian Ben Stiller will reunite with NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM writers in 20th Century Fox film RENTAGHOST. The project is based on the BBC series, which ran from 1976 to 1984 following Fred Mumford, who recently died and is determined to be more productive in the afterlife so he sets up an agency entitled Rentaghost, where fellow spirits are leased out to help the living. This new version will feature Ben Stiller as an American consultant sent to revitalize a failing U.K. company. Before Ben Stiller, Russel Brand was mentioned for the lead role.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Our dear Michael Fassbender seems to be sticking to hard stories, since according to "Variety" he's just taken a role in 12
YEARS A SLAVE
, a true story of Solomon Northrup (to be played by Chiwetel Ejiofor), a New York man who was kidnapped in Washington state and sold into slavery in 1841. He was rescued from a Louisiana cotton plantation in 1853. On the other hand, Jim Carrey is playing it safe, since according to "Deadline" he will star in BURT WONDERSTONE, a story of  a popular Las Vegas magician (Steve Carell) who gets upstaged by a hip new street performer. Burt Wonderstone then goes on a journey of self-discovery to reclaim his love of magic. Carrey will probably play the street magician.

Your trailer for today is a charming one for British uplifting and inspirational movie WILL which hits UK cinemas this November
and follows an 11-year-old Will Brennan who is Liverpool FC's biggest fan. At a boys' school in England, Will's knowledge and love of The Beautiful Game even outshines his football-obsessed mates. But his life is turned upside-down when his long-absent father Gareth reappears with tickets to the '05 Champions League Final in Istanbul. However, he will have to run off on a journey of his own to make it to the game. Beside little Perry Eggleton, the cast also includes always brilliant Damian Lewis and vetaran Bob Hoskins.
And don't forget that later this Thursday, I will be posting an exclusive interview with delightful and always fun Melissa Bradley,  six times published author!

  1. Excluding Super Mario Bros, Hoskins usually makes good films and Lewis was great in Life. Prob give that one a go. But Ben Stiller reunititing with a Night at the museum writers made me cringe, those movies were awful. They could have been good, but they were just bad.

    Damon Lewis is one of the best British actors, too bad he usually gets roles only in TV projects (although his roles in BAND OF BROTHERS and THE FORSYTHE SAGA were marvelous) and nothing on film :(

    @Shells
    glad you like WILL, isn't it an uplifting trailer? I expect you later today here to read the interview with Melissa :)

  4. Michael Fassbender is obviously interested in serious, challenging roles, not fluff.

  5. he surely is, he recently had SHAME (which, I always like to emphasize, will also feature him full frontal nude in the opening scenes he he ) and now this, not to mention all of his previous dramas.

  11. I am loving Damian Lewis in Showtime's "HOMELAND". He is outstanding and so talented!
    Carrey and Carrell together again, sounds great to me! I'm looking forward to Melissa's interview! RENTAGHOST, could be a fun ride, time will tell...

  12. a bit off topic, but i thought fassbender was the only redeeming quality in the movie "centurion", which i watched the other day. hadn't seen him act before.

  13. I am in love with Fassbender and will see anything he's in. He's such a talented actor. He and Luke Evans are two of my faves.

    Can't wait for interview. It's going to be so exciting... spicy and nice. ;)

  14. Dezz, what the freak? Seriously these pictures are awesome. Who are you? You're like super picture cyber god.

  15. I just love Ben Stiller, sounds awesome :D

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow, I didn't realise that Bob Hoskins was still in the game. Good for him :)

    Ben Stiller in a Rentaghost movie sounds more than a little odd, but it could be good :)

  17. It's probably just me but never been a fan of Ben Stiller for some reason and I used to be Liverpool's greatest fan.

  19. Is Will a movie based on a true story? It sounds like it is. Cool, anyway. I love Damian Lewis.

    hope you will like Melissa and mine naughty little interview :) She gave me some really interesting and some really fun answers, and don't miss her answer on her upcoming projects

    @Ella
    I've wrote about Damian's new show, but I haven't seen it yet. I'm sure he's great in it as usually :)

  21. @Edmund
    it wasn't a bad film, beside Fassbender, Imogen Poots, who plays the woman in the woods, was also very charismatic and great

    @Melsy
    how could we not love Michael and Luke :)
    The interview has been posted :)

    @Erin
    oh, finally, someone admits my Godly powers :))) I will appoint you as the high priestess of Dezz's Eye Candy Divine Temple :)

  22. @Jolene
    he can be lovely at times, yes? :)

    @Jamie
    I think he mostly stars in small British films now.And Ben can be super fun until he crosses certain borders :) He likes putting himself in the most awkward situations on film

    @Lurk
    no longer supporting Liverpool? :) They've been bad?

  23. @Scott
    oooh, super exciting, Scottie!Looking forward to reading your review on it. I love the trailer

    @Clarissa
    it is possible, and Damian is always great!

  24. When I first heard of a big-screen Rentaghost I thought it was a joke. Rentaghost was the cheapest, lamest, most unfunny supernatural comedy ever and the idea of a big-budget Hollywood version is real Through The Looking Glass stuff. It shows that the endless recycling of past ideas had reached a truly farcical level...
