1ST PIC OF JOHNNY DEPP & ARMIE HAMMER IN "THE LONE RANGER"! "MOONRISE KINGDOM" WITH BRUCE WILLIS & ED NORTON! JAKE GYLLENHAAL IN "MOTOR CITY" WITH GARY OLDMAN!

Variety has reported today that Jake Gyllenhaal has replaced Dominic Cooper in the lead role in MOTOR CITY, a thriller about an ex convict who is released from prison, and then begins a quest for
vengeance, seeking out the men who framed him. Gary Oldman will play the villain, while gorgeous Amber Heard plays the female lead role. After the success of his SOURCE CODE thriller last year, which earned more than $100 million around the world, Jake will also join Jessica Biel and James Marsden in NAILED (about a small town waitress who gets a nail accidentally lodged in her head causing unpredictable behavior that leads her to Washington, DC, where sparks fly when she meets a clueless young senator who takes up her cause) and in END OF WATCH, about the long-term friendship and partnership between two cops. What is it with big stars going B-league and shooting mediocre crime flicks? I mean, wasn't Gyllenhaal prince of Persia?

HOLLY WOOD SPY HEAD LINES
Ah, those damn vampires just won't let it go! Surprise, surprise, there's a new vampire project in Hollywood, and methinks it's the 58th in line, but it might be 59th as well: as "Deadline" reports Alexandre Aja (THE HILLS HAVE EYES) might helm UNDYING LOVE, which will be a movie adaptation of a comic following an ex-soldier who falls for a girl that happens to be a vampire. The only way the two can be together is if the man takes on the vampire who created her, which also means
fighting an army of monsters in the Hong Kong underworld. The story mixes traditional vampire lore with Chinese monster myths and the Hong Kong action genre. And above you can check out the first pic of Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as THE LONE RANGER from the upcoming blockbuster which comes out next year. Directed by Gore Verbinski the film will also star Helena Bonham Carter.

A new poster has been released for MOONRISE KINGDOM which premiers this May and I know a lot of you are excited about the film since it has a
stellar cast. Set on an island off the coast of New England in the 1960s, the story follows a young boy and girl falling in love. When they are moved to run away together, various factions of the town mobilize to search for them and the town is turned upside down – which might not be such a bad thing. Bruce Willis plays the town sheriff, two-time Academy Award nominee Edward Norton is cast as a camp leader, Academy Award nominee Bill Murray and Academy Award winner Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents and the cast also includes Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton and Jason Schwartzman.

  2. That's not how I imagined Tonto would look, but I guess they had to make sure Johnny didn't look too much like Captain Sparrow...
    And lol at Budd's comment.

    1. you mean, to you Depp doesn't look overly crazy as in PIRATES? For a second I thought he stole the same costume :)

  3. There are some cool movies coming up. I almost didn't recognize Depp as Tonto. Also, love Norton, what a wacky movie.

  4. Is the casting of Johnny Depp as Tonto getting any criticism as Hollywood hiring yet another white guy to play an Indian instead of a Native American actor? Just wondering.

  5. Depp looks crazy. But crazy works for him. I'll watch. :))

  9. My Johnny looks quite interesting as Tonto, but I don't like the dead bird on his head.

    Moonrise Kingdom looks fantastic and can't wait to see it. :)

  11. I wish Edward Norton would make a real movie. He hasn't been in one that I've liked since American History X.

  12. Seems to be that whenever Depp is offered a role, his response it, "How much make up can I wear?" Looks like it could be pretty cool though.

  13. I didn't recognize Depp.

    I'm no longer in the mood for vampires, but maybe I'll change my mind by the time Undying Love comes out.

  14. I hope they do a good job with the Lone Ranger because it's such a classic. I'm a bit off Depp these days though. And please God, no, not another vampire movie. Moonrise looks like a good film, but they've got Willis looking old and paunchy and if I see it I'll just cry all the way through it.

  19. Though I'm not typically a big fan of Wes, MOONRISE KINGDOM does look like a hoot. Might go out to see that one when it comes out.

  20. My favorite is when people go all "WTF, Johnny?" with his costume in this. Then you see this picture of the traditional Dakotan Indian attire and you hopefully change your mind.
