GLENN CLOSE & ELIZABETH OLSEN IN "THERESE RAQUIN"! MAX IRONS & JAKE ABEL IN "THE HOST"! REESE WITHERSPOON IN "RULE #1". BILLY CRYSTAL HOSTS THE OSCARS

 As "Entertainment Weekly" reports, beside Victor Hugo's LES MISERABLES (Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne, Russell Crowe), Charles Dickens' THE GREAT EXPECTATIONS (Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes) and
Tolstoy's ANNA KARENINA (Jude Law, Matthew McFadyen, Aaron Johnson), we shall watch another movie adaptation of a classic novel: THERESE RAQUIN by Emile Zola set in Paris in 1867,  which follows young Therese, who is forced by her aunt, Madame Raquin, into a loveless marriage to her sick, spoiled first cousin. Therese soon becomes obsessed with her husband’s friend Laurent and is pulled into a devastating affair with him that unravels all of their lives. It is interesting that the lead roles will go to Glenn Close and young Elizabeth Olsen, who are both huge contenders for Oscars next year thanks to their roles in ALBERT NOBBS and MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
As you've heard by now, the new host of the OSCARS 2012 will be Billy Crystal who is taking the role instead of Eddie
Murphy
. There was a huge group lobbying for The Muppets to be the hosts, and even their screenwriter said it's a brilliant idea, but the role went to Crystal. And according to "The Hollywood Reporter" everyone's favourite Reese Witherspoon has got herself a new role: she will star in RULE #1 a comedy about a 34-year-old woman trying to cope with OCD, who takes in a young woman with ADD and her newborn baby in an effort to face her anxieties and ultimately get her estranged husband back. The resulting effort takes the woman's already chaotic world spinning into the next level.

One of the hottest projects currently when it comes to casting is the movie adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's sf novel THE HOST in which Saoirse Ronan will play a girl in the world in which human souls are invaded by alien creatures. The film will have two male leads. The role of her boyfriend just went to Max Irons
(RED RIDING HOOD) who won it over Liam Hemsworth, Jai Courtney and Kit Harington and "Deadline" reports that the role of the villain in the film will probably go to young Jake Abel . He starred previously in THE LOVELY BONES, I AM NUMBER FOUR and PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS THE LIGHTNING THIEF. The film is being directed by Andrew Niccol from GATTACA and IN TIME.

  1. So I may be behind the times, but did Murphy give a reason for dropping out?

  3. Muppets would have been interesting, but I like Crystal so that's fine by me. ADD OCD that's just TFB. I'd go all WTF, if ADD messed with my OCD..haha

  4. Yawn...another Steph Meyer teen fantasy. Sorry, but I HATE the Twilight films. At least this one will be better because Saoirse Ronan can act. Max Irons on the other hand, another wooden pretty boy gets to pose on screen.

    I find it ironic that Mary Kate and Ashley's younger sister got all the real acting talent.

  5. I've often heard cited that Billy Crystal was the best Oscar host of all. Eddie Murphy was probably a big risk and maybe it's better that he's not going to host.

    yep, he ditched hosting because Brett Ratner was sacked from producing the Oscars because he said some really stupid things in public lately. You have that in one of the previous posts :)

    @Lizzy
    I couldn't agree more :) Imagine all the gowns Miss Piggy would've changed and the stage presence of Animal :)

    Oh, Pat, you naughty cat, admit that you did this on purpose, you know us non native speakers of English get headaches from acronyms :)

    @Melsy
    dahling, I couldn't agree more with you. I swear if you gave me million dollars to tell you who was worse in RED RIDING HOOD, Max or Shiloh I wouldn't know what to tell you :) It is sad but most of the young stars are utterly uneducated, unenlightened and have no charisma, take for example Rihanna, Bieber, Britney, Katty Perry, RPats, Kristen Stewart, Avril Lavign... all terribly horrible and shallow and such bad bad bad examples for kids. I mean look at ignorant Rihanna singing about how she killed someone and shaking her hips at the same time to the rhythm of reggae... Makes me wanna throw myself off the first bridge :( Where is this world going to?

    @Flying

  10. I didn't know Mary Kate and Ashley had a younger sis

  11. I had been wondering if she was their sister, it is difficult to believe that the same family would have a critically acclaimed actress :)

  12. I was trying to emulate Hugh Hefner, but then my wife got really pissed when I tried to bring home two young voluptuous blonds to live with us. She threw them out along with my silk pajamas and smoking jacket.
