FIRST PICS FROM "HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA"! COLIN FARRELL IN "ARTHUR & LANCELOT" EPIC? EMMY ROSSUM IN POKER FILM "WAY DOWN SOUTH"! JEREMY IRONS JOINS EMMA THOMPSON AND VIOLA DAVIS IN "BEAUTIFUL CREATURES"

We finally have the 1st pictures from one of the most promising of the upcoming animated flicks: check out the images from HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA which hits cinemas this September set in Dracula's lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up,
free from meddling from the human world. But here's a little known fact about Dracula: he is not only the Prince of Darkness, he is also a dad. Over protective of his teenage daughter, Mavis, Dracula fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to dissuade her adventurous spirit. As a haven
for Mavis, he opens the Hotel Transylvania, where his daughter and some of the world's most famous monsters - Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more - can kick back in safety and peace. For Dracula, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem - but his world could come crashing
down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.Adam Sandler will give his voice to Dracula, Kevin James is Frankenstein, Fran Drescher is his bride :),  David Spade is Quasimodo, Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon are married werewolves and Cee-Lo Green is Mummy!

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
The cast for the film adaptation of fantasy saga BEAUTIFUL CREATURES keeps getting stronger: this hauntingly intense coming of age story set in the South, follows two star-crossed teenage lovers, Ethan,
a local boy, and a mysterious new girl, Lena, who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town. As you remember, two Oscar nominees Emma Thompson and Viola Davis are already in the cast, beside Emmy Rossum and Jack O'Connel and now another Oscar gent Jeremy Irons is in negotiations to join them as well. Speaking of lovely Emmy Rossum, all of you who enjoy some poker and gambling mixed with action might enjoy her other new project as well: she will join rapper Nas and Jack Huston in WAY DOWN SOUTH, which tells the story of a gambler and small time crook, who steals a Civil War-era sword from a museum to finance his escape from a loan shark who staked him in a losing poker game.The film is being directed by Jonas Pate who worked on FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, CAPRICA, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA...

And here's another good news: according to "Variety", our dear Michael Fassbender might take the lead role in MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US, a romantic drama I mentioned recently which, based
on the novel by Charles Martin, follows two strangers who survive a plane crash in the Colorado woods and are forced to rely on one another for survival, eventually falling in love. As you know, Fass My Benders first has to finish two Ridley Scott's films THE COUNSELOR and PROMETHEUS, the second one premiering this summer, and he also has TWELVE YEARS A SLAVE, a Brad Pitt produced historical film on a man living in New York during the mid-1800s who is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the deep south. Another interesting info today is that Warner Bros. has decided to bring back the cancelled ARTHUR AND LANCELOT epic from the dead (at more than $100 million it was deemed too expensive last winter) but with Colin Farrell in one of the lead roles which were previously meant for two TV stars Joel Kinnaman (THE KILLING) as Lancelot and Kit Harington (GAME OF THRONES) as Arthur.

  2. Prometheus is done. It's gonna be showing in June 2012 which is really only a few weeks away. It is the movie I am MOST apeshit over at the moment.

    And as for Emmy Rossum...I love her. But she better not even be thinking of leaving my Shameless. No sireee. I love Shameless and have grown addicted to it. All this stuff she is doing makes me think she may no longer have time for it which will make me scream.

    1. yep, I said it premiers this summer. Can't say I share the excitement, but I think it will be a blockbuster.

      I've never heard of SHAMELESS, I have to check it out, Michael, thanks for sharing.

  4. Hotel Transylvania sounds like a modern version (even though the story is different) of Monster Mash. I think it sounds maaarvelous, darling.

  6. Hmmm... I wonder if Mr. Fass My Benders will actually film MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US in Colorado? You may need a local spy to do some up close reporting for you, if that's the case. :))

  7. That HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA look funny and it has a funny cast with Sandler and Drescher and Spade.

    Stories about the South are usually so sad and disturbing but Rossum's a really hottie.

  11. Emmy is fab and LOVE the idea of Hotel Transylvania

  12. Hotel Transylvania looks like a great romp with all my favorite childhood monsters. All the classics here Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Invisible Man. Back when I was a kid these were king and there was no blood and gore in the movies, so it was just scary but not horror. Fassbender, hmmmmm yummy, yummy. In four new movies you say? I'm off to take a cold shower!!

  14. I like the look of Hotel Transylvania.
    I hope Lancelot and Arthur gets the go ahead, though it's a shame Kit isn't going to be in it any longer.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Kit might still be in it, since we don't know whom Farrell will play, but I reckon he won't be the king, but Lancelot since Kinnaman has taken the ROBOCOP gig, which means Kit could still play Arthur.

  15. Is Hotel Transylvania by the same people who made Despicable Me? The art looks similar.

  19. Hotel Transylvania looks awesome! And you know I can never have enough of Fass My Benders. ;)

    Not sure about Colin Farrell in Arthur and Lancelot, but I'm glad they're bringing it back.

    1. I wish I could've found a bigger pic of Fass My Benders from this THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER photo shoot, so that you could enjoy every inch of his skin, but alas I couldn't :(
      Farrell is a death treat to any epic film since he ruined both ALEXANDER and THE NEW WORLD, so I really don't know whose stupid idea was it to let him kill another epic
