GORGEOUS TRAILER FOR CHOW YUN FAT'S EPIC "THE ASSASSINS"! ADRIEN BRODY, GERARD BUTLER, MICKEY ROURKE IN "MOTOR CITY"! JASON MOMOA JOINS "WOLVES", JAIME PRESSLY & ROBIN THICKE IN "ABBY IN THE SUMMER"

According to "Variety" Oscar winning actor Adrien Brody is in negotiations to replace Gary Oldman in MOTOR CITY. Adrien will play a villain in the story in which Gerard Butler plays an ex-con who starts tracking down the men who framed him and sent him to prison, almost immediately after his release. The cast also includes Amber Heard (mostly famous for her love for her own sex and for her fling with Johnny Depp) and Mickey Rourke. Wonder if Adrien will stay in the project, since the producers already had Jake Gyllenhaal and Dominic Cooper leave the cast.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
 In other casting news, "Movie Web" reports that our favourite Conan
and Khal Drogo from GAME OF THRONES, ex BAYWATCH star Jason Momoa has taken a role in WOLVES. I've written about this project before announcing Lucas Till in the lead role. Momoa will play a villain in this story which revolves around a young man who transforms into a werewolf after being falsely accused of committing his parents' murder. He comes across a small town called Lupine Ridge, which holds the secrets of his real identity. According to "Digital Spy" two stunning people Jaime Pressly and rnb star Robin Thicke will star in ABBY IN THE SUMMER, in which "My Name Is Earl" star plays an adrenaline junkie who is forced to leave her job as a chef when she accidentally cuts herself. She subsequently
has to deal with distracted husband (Tygh Runyan) and her old flame (Robin Thicke). They will also be joined by Frances Conroy as her mother, and Joey Lauren Adams as her best friend. 

THE ASSASSINS EPIC
 When it comes to video treats, today I have for you a trailer for Chinese period epic THE ASSASSINS. According to "Twitch" the film is directed by first-timer Zhao Linshan and produced by the same
 team behind Zhang Yimou's Oscar candidate THE FLOWERS OF WAR, and its story revolves around Han Dynasty Prime Minister Cao Cao (famous Chow Yun Fat), who in his twilight years only grew in power and threatened to take over the Han Empire. The story also deals with a pair of young lovers, played by Liu Yi Fei and Japanese actor Tamaki Hiroshi, who are snatched from a prison camp and trained to become deadly assassins. The films premiers this September in China and it has been sold for American distribution as well. Check out the gorgeous trailer:

  2. Nice pic of Adrien darling. He's intelligent and sexy, a lethal combination in a man. Brody and Butler on the big screen together, well that will give me fodder for erotic fantasies that could last years!!

    And thanks for the trailer of the Assassins. I do love Asian films. It's great to see the world through the eyes of a culture so ancient and so very different from my own.

    1. loved that pic the moment I saw it first :) And he is non-perfect in face in the way ladies like :)

      There will probably be some other Asian trailers this week, darling, Hollywood is offering nothing, but good old China is always here for us :)

    2. I know Brody is not classically handsome, but there is something about the sum of those irregular parts that creates beauty for us. Also he has charisma and we respond to that. His eyes say so much.

      Hollywood routinely offers nothing and serves it up as "something". Very tiresome that. I enjoy the change of pace on the movie scene.

    3. you do know I saw him in reality when he was shooting BROTHERS BLOOM with Rachel Weisz in my city. I was surprised with how short he was. Since he is thin and so muscular, I always thought he was tall, but he is not. He is very cute, like something you would want to put in your pocket :)

    4. Ooooh lucky you. I had no idea he was short. I've pictured him as long and lean all this time.

      Hugh Laurie is another one of those men who are not "handsome" yet are found drop dead sexy by women. So is Patrick Stewart. Irregular features, yet we want them. I think that's good thing for us women.

    5. he is, he had eyes like a little bambi when I barged into the room unannounced :)))

      You know, I've never understood why ladies like Hugh, and I hope it's not because of his character in the show. I liked him as crazy Percy in BLACK ADDER :)

  3. I had hoped for Gary Oldman to star w/ Gerry Berry, but he's good friends w/ Adrien Brody I think, so I'm sure that might make for an easy negotiation :) I also heard Mickey Rourke was once considered to be the villain in Motor City.

    1. I'm not sure if he will be a werewolf or just Lucas Till :) I missed Momoa in the rather boring second season of GAME OF THRONES :(

  5. My parents would probably be interested in the last movie but I don't really care for those kind of Asian films.

  8. I'm looking forward to Jason Momoa in Wolves! I vote he will be a wolf(he's got the eyes for it).
    It will be a surprise transformation near the movie's end...so they can make another one. Cousin wolves or long lost brothers, lol
