GREAT NEW PICS FROM "WRATH OF THE TITANS" EPIC! REESE WITHERSPOON & RYAN REYNOLDS IN "BIG EYES"! GOLDIE HAWN & BEN STILLER GET THEIR HBO SITCOMS!

An interesting pair has just been added to Tim Burton produced drama BIG EYES: according to "Variety", Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Reynolds will take the lead roles in this movie based on the true
story of artists Margaret Keane and Walter Keane, whose bizarre paintings featuring large eyes were popular around the world in the 1960s. The film will try to explain how Margaret Keane was the true artist behind the paintings, and how Walter Keane stole all the credit for her work. As you know, Reese has THIS MEANS WAR this spring in which Tom Hardy and Chris Pine will fight for her, and then someone will steal her and Jason Segel's SEX TAPE. Ryan is, on the other hand, playing a cop babysitting a dangerous criminal in SAFE HOUSE next to Denzel Washington and he should also appear next to Sandra Bullock in MOST WANTED as an FBI agent who, trying to escort a criminal suspect, gets ambushed and the pair are forced to go on the run together.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
The trend of movie actors moving to TV (Patrick Wilson, Jessica Lange, Ashley Judd, James Caviezel, Sean Bean,
Holy Hunter, Joseph Fiennes...) continues with two new examples: Goldie Hawn who will lead HBO'S new sitcom VIAGRA DIARIES, based on Darren Star's script about a woman who struggles with the prospect of being single for the first time in 35 years, when her 65-year-old husband suddenly leaves her. Meanwhile, Ben Stiller will star in another HBO comedy pilot: ALL TALK, politically, religiously, culturally, intellectually and sexually irreverent show revolving around the daily and life-altering dramas of a Jewish family in Washington, DC.

Some great new images have been released in the latest issue of Empire Magazine of the main stars from WRATH OF THE TITANS, the sequel to the successful epic which premiers this March. The story is set a decade after the heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, with Perseus (Sam Worthington), the demigod son of Zeus (Liam Neeson), is
attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Poseidon. The
triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus' godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramirez), switch loyalties and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans'
strength grows stronger as Zeus' remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon's demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.

  1. While i am a bit tired of biopics, Reynolds needs a good movie, so hopefully Big Eyes will be it. I still feel he hasn't been in anything good since Buried

  3. Technically Stiller was more of a tv star first with that other show of his, so he's just going back. Goldie Hawn haha forgot all about her.

  4. Oh, I remember those "big-eyed" kitschy paintings from the 1960s . . . usually kids and small animals were depicted. Gawd, they were popular.

  5. I still haven't seen the first Titans movie. I might have to rent it.

    Also, I'm kind of looking forward to Safe House with Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds.

  11. I can't wait for Wrath of the Titans. I know it's gonna be bad, and I don't care, I'm still watching it. :)

    Hopefully Ryan gets some respect for being a decent actor now. He's come a hell of a long way from Van Wilder.

  12. When I saw Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Reynolds I immediately thought it'd be a rom-com, but a biopic? Interesting. Both of them need a box office hit for sure.

  13. Hmm. I'll give the Titans franchise another shot. Clash was beyond blah but will keep my fingers crossed for Wrath...

  14. I'm surprised they made a sequel to Clash because I thought it was a bit meh, but this one looks might fine.

    2. well, that's the key, I think. A money spinner :)

  15. The biopic sounds a like it could be interesting. For a DVD night. :) I love Goldie Hawn and it'll be great for me to see her back to acting.

    The pics from Wrath are gorgeous. I hope the story and the acting are better this time around.

    1. even Samwise Worthington admitted that the first part was poorly done by him and that he will try more in the sequel (judging from the trailer he is still quiet a weak actor, but he does have a certain sexy charisma around him). I'm more worried about Rosamund Pike, she isn't really a charismatic lady.

  16. Things have been a bit crazy lately. I'm falling behind on my visiting.

    It's funny--today I was googling for info about those "Big Eye" paintings that were so popular when I was a kid, and I found out about that movie. Now you're talking about it. I'm intrigued.

  18. Dezz, why does Reynolds get to keep his shirt open but not Witherspoon? His abs are so depressing if you don't have them yourself.... (well, not that many)

    1. maybe Witherspoon has nothing to show LOL? :))
      Yes, some guys have been born with all the ab luck in the world :(

  19. I'd forgotten about those paintings. I never really thought of them as "art", buy hey in the 60's even a toilet was considered art. Wrath of the Titans is a must-see for me, Liam Neeson, need I say more?

    1. I'm not familiar with the pics since they were painted two decades before my birth ;) but I see they are quite popular.
      I knew you would like Liam's appearance in the post :)

  20. Ow wow!!! I believe The Clash of the Titans was terrible and now they are making the sequel...poor Hollywood.

  21. i think i have a boner :O

    1. LOL boner from what, if I me ask? From Ryan's abs LOL or from action in THE TITANS? :)))

  22. Wrath of the Titans could be better than it's first offering, we'll see....

  23. I like the pairing of Gosling and Witherspoon in the new Tim Burton flick. That should be interesting...I wonder what roles Depp and Helena Bonham Carter will have! ;)

    1. you mean Reynolds and Witherspoon :))
      It's not directed, but produced, by Burton, so we might have the luck of not seeing Depp and Helena in it :)

  24. I used to be a fan of Ben Stiller, but I'm growing less impressed, and I'm not sure why.

    1. it must be because he is constantly repeating himself. I have the same problem with Sandler Adam.

    1. we hate thieves...big time! You know, there are three of four sites out there that are solely based on totally copying HOLLYWOOD SPY stories? Along with the titles, pics, they change nothing, just copy and paste... sometimes they even have higher ranking at Google with the stolen stories from me, that those very same stories have at HOLLYWOOD SPY :)

    2. holy smokes! that's horrible. you need me to go crack some skulls? i know YOU don't like to resort to violence... but I on the other hand...

      Delete
    3. the problem is that I'm totally helpless, what can I do to close those sites? Nothing? Who knows where they are situated and who owns them or not... they can steal and steal and steal, as they do, and I'm helpless against them.

      Delete
  26. I hope Wrath is better than Clash, though with Worthington as the lead I'm not convinced. Still, with Neeson and Fiennes as Zeus and Hades it'll still be pretty badass.
