THRILLING TRAILER FOR STEPHEN DORFF'S "BRAKE"! JENNIFER LAWRENCE & BRADLEY COOPER IN "SERENA"! JOHN KRASINSKI & MATT DAMON IN "THE PROMISED LAND"

Since period projects are quite trendy right now with the success of DOWNTON ABBEY, you might like the sound of this one: "Variety" reports that Rhys Ifans might join Bradley Cooper, Toby Jones
and Jennifer Lawrence in SERENA a movie adaptation of a novel by Ron Rash. Story unfolds in the mountains of 1920s North Carolina, with Cooper playing a timber baron and Lawrence playing his wife Serena, who battles the government to save their lands and engineers the murder of her husband's illegitimate son. Ifans is in talks to play Galloway, a vicious Appalachian guide who becomes Serena's muscle after she saves his life. Jones is set to play Sheriff McDowell, who doggedly pursues Cooper's character. Ifans has been quite busy recently: beside starring in Roland Emmerich's ANONYMOUS last year he also plays Lizard in THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN and will also appear next to Emily Blunt and Jon Segel in THE FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
As "Deadline" reports, John Krasinski and Matt Damon will star in Gus Van Sant's THE PROMISED LAND, in which the story centres on a sales executive
who begins to question his life when he is called to a small town on business. According to "Variety" Warner Bros. will adapt LUCID comic into a film. The story of the Archaia Entertainment (with whom Warner is also doing BOLIVAR film I've mentioned last week) comic takes place in a parallel universe where magic is real and world leaders have secret agents working to fight off supernatural threats. Main character is a young agent, recently appointed "Protector of the Realm" who must use his skills as a covert spy and combat mage to stop an occult technology dealer.

And I have a very intriguing and quite interesting trailer for you today: it's the clip for action thriller BRAKE in which the story revolves around a Secret Service Agent who is held captive in the trunk of a car and endures high-speed mental and physical torture as terrorists attempt to extract needed information for their sinister plot. The film with unusual setting has Stephen Dorff in the lead role. You've probably noticed that he kinda returned from the dead after playing Henry Cavill's slave and side-kick in Tarsem's mind blowing epic blockbuster IMMORTALS last winter. The film opens in cinemas March 23rd!

  1. Apparently Jennifer Lawrence was at the Mall of America last Friday, I just read in the paper today. Thousands of people actually camped out for 12 hours to see her, Josh Hutcherson & the rest of the Hunger Games cast. Good thing I didn't go to the mall (it's only 15 min from my work) as it must have been nuts!! Liam Hemsworth wasn't there though, he'd have been the only person I'd like to see.

  2. Brake looks kind of like a hyped up Phone Booth or the Ryan Reynolds one with him in the casket, prob cheap to make though. The Promised Man sounds like a Doc Hollywoond rip off.

    2. I suppose you could, if you hired Bob Sagat or something. (first name that popped into me head..lol)

    3. I've seen Bob in some new sitcom recently :) Brought back memories of FULL HOUSE :)

  3. I like Gus Van Sant's movies so "The Promised Land" could be promising -- sounds like it might have some depth to it.

  4. Yay for Rhys Ifans getting lots of work. I really did love him in ANONYMOUS.

    Ooh, and BRAKE looks crazy tense. I might watch that one just to see how they resolve it.

    1. Rhys is always great, remember how wonderfully crazy he was in NOTTING HILL? :)

      Delete
    2. He was crazy in that. Hardly seems like the same guy, standing there in his underwear. I really like him in serious roles though too.

      Delete
    3. as years go by he is starting to accept and seek out more serious roles too.

  5. Wow, I haven't seen Stephen Dorff since Blade. I'm glad that he's still around, he did well in that.

  6. Gus Van Sant's movies are the best! Look forward to see "The Promised Land".

  7. Brake looks a great film...and having said that the Promised Land sounds cool as well.
    I might even take the wife out to see some of these, instead of doing my normal trick of missing everything in the cinema.

  8. Watched Immortals last week, and it was freaking awesome!

  9. Question your life after going to a small town? Promised Land sounds like a complete yawner. I have visited many small towns and never once wanted to change my life and live there. I need 24 hour action. ;)

    Lucid sounds wicked cool. Always up for a supernatural flick and wow, I cannot wait for Stephen Dorf's Brake. Holy Cow!

    1. LOL, I thought you would say that :)
      I'm somewhere in the middle, although I would love the tranquility and nature in some small town, I'd probably die without supermarkets and shops :)

    2. You know me so well, my friend. ;) I am with you on the shops and supermarkets. My cousin lives in a beautiful little town in central Illinois, but it's like an hour and half to the nearest urban area with shops, etc. Yikes! I go nuts after a day.

    3. the two of us would go crazy and we would start chasing people in the village woods during night :)

  10. Jennifer she beautiful and sexy cool

  11. What in the name of all that is holy is Dorf doing wearing that white pair of jeans with that coat. Horrid, horrid, horrid I can't stand it. And the movies Brake doesn't appeal to me either as the plot seems a bit obvious to me. None of these really float my boat for some reason. I think there are too many possibly good movies coming out for these to compete with.

    1. you don't like it? Oh, my, I almost fell of my chair the first time I discovered the pic :) Those abs of his are the hottest abs in the intergalactic history of abs :) And I wouldn't mind having that coat :) It would go superb with dark blue jeans, dark blue sweater and white T underneath ;)

  12. Ah Stephen Dwarf, I am so pleased he is having a little come back. I liked him so in BLADE!

  13. Jennifer Lawrence doesn't do it for me. I think it's the lack of facial expression. Glad to see Stephen Dorff making a comeback. I loved him in ENTROPY, which if you haven't seen, you should do.

    1. it's true, Joshy, she has a very blank and empty look in her eyes, kinda like a zombie.

  14. Great pic of Jennifer. You sure know how to make us want to watch more (movies), Doc. ;)

    1. that's great, we love Krasinski :)

  16. I'm so happy to see that John Krasinski is getting another role in a movie. I wasn't impressed with him in Leatherhead but that was only because of the movie, not him. I really loved his role in Something Borrowed. Thanks, Dez

    1. Krasinski is probably the most adorable face that appeared in Hollywood in last twenty years. Extremely charismatic in a very warm and kind way.

  17. Gah! Captive in the trunk of a car! My worst nightmare!!! No, buried alive is really it, but that's a close second. And see? That's the J'Law who is NOT Katniss in my mind. they did a real transformation on her for THG. Good stuff, thanks Dez~ :o) <3

  18. Jennifer Lawrence doesn't look like any mountain woman from the 1920's North Carolina in that photo, but she sure looks like a sweetie.
