JOAQUIN PHOENIX, OLIVIA WILDE, AMY ADAMS IN "HER"! ZOE SALDANA IS GAMORA IN "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY"? "BEFORE MIDNIGHT" TRAILER WITH ETHAN HAWKE & JULIE DELPY! "THE AGE OF MIRACLES" MOVIE ADAPTATION

I mentioned yesterday a couple of new roles that expect Amy Adams in the future, but forgot to mention charming comedy HER in which she will star next to Joaquin Phoenix, Olivia Wilde
and Samantha Morton. It will be a story about a lonely writer who develops an unlikely relationship with his newly purchased operating system that's designed to meet his every need.

  THE AGE OF MIRACLES 
And it seems that Karen Thompson Walker's bestseller THE AGE OF MIRACLES will get a movie version. To be directed by Catherine Hardwicke ( she made such shallow and empty films out of RED RIDING HOOD and TWILIGHT) the film will be aet amidst an advancing catastrophe after the Earth's rotation mysteriously slows, and will bring a suspenseful and romantic snapshot of one young girl's adolescence, a poignant family drama, and a heartrending glimpse into the everyday tragedies and triumphs that define what it is to be human in a world that might just be ending.

  ZOE SALDANA IN GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Rumours around the casting process in the upcoming super hero flick GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY are still circling around the net: the latest one, coming from Heat Vision Blog, says that STAR TREK's Zoe Saldana is wanted for the role of Gamora! Marvel's  green-skinned assassin is the last of a race that was wiped out by the Baldoon and she is also the adopted daughter of the main villain Thanos! She possesses super-human strength, agility, and healing abilities. The already confirmed cast members include Chris Pratt who takes the lead role of Star-lord, the leader of the Guardians, and Dave Bautista who will play Drax the Destroyer! The film will also have a talking raccoon :) It seems they are toning down the whole film since after all the famous names which were mentioned for some of the roles, they've been choosing less attractive ones so far.

  BEFORE MIDNIGHT TRAILER

Since I know my ladies loved the previous films, here's the trailer and poster for BEFORE MIDNIGHT, the continuation of BEFORE SUNRISE and BEFORE SUNSET. Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke return to their roles almost twenty years after the first film and this time we meet their characters, Jesse and Celine nine years after BEFORE SUNSET sequel, and they are now in Greece. Almost two decades have passed since their first meeting on that famous train bound for Vienna.The movie is directed by Richard Linklater mostly known for his FAST FOOD NATION movie. I find both the actors and the films terribly boring and lifeless, but I know some of you like them! It escapes me how those films ever became romantic classics with such a lack of any kind of emotions on the faces of the two of them.

  4. Joaquin Phoenix is one of my favourite actors. Still think he should have won an Oscar for Walk The Line. He was positively brilliant!

    1. I think he should've won the Oscar for playing Commodus in GLADIATOR. He was the only good thing in it.

  5. Never even heard of Before Sunrise/Sunset. I do love Ethan Hawke's name, though. I'd like to steal it for a character.

    And obviously you have questionable taste, if you thought Commodus was the only thing good in Gladiator. Pffft...

  6. I'm dropping in to check out your new attire - very Spring! I'm definitely a fan of dafs—a favourite with Mumsie too—I have them planted in the garden.

    Also... I know you have a birthday this month... so HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope i haven't missed it! Hugs, Jenny

    1. My Birthday is April 12th, Jennzie :) That's next Friday. I'm trying not to think about it since it will be a round number and I have my fears and issues with getting old :(
      HOLLYWOOD SPY will be four years old at the end of the month, though :)

      Glad you like daffodils! I wanted something springy

    2. Oooohhhh...round number...ending in zero?? Hmmm...let me think...29? that's round, right! Looks round to me, see the curve of the nine...

      I'm doing 39 really well...hahahaha!! and it's round too!

      You young kids nowadays...fretting about aging...come up to my neck of the wrinkle ladder and lets talk. :) :)

    3. Nope, 35 :( Wish it was 29, I'd be in heavens.... And it's not about the age itself... but what you have done or not so far....

    4. How true - I'm grateful for all the wonderful experiences I've had in my short time here on this little orb... god willing I'll have a few more before I exit.

      So...that means 1978 was a good year. Heck, as a shocker, that's two years after I graduated high school...yes, yes, I know I look stunningly young for my age (wicked stepmother laugh injected here) and you..you ook far too young (from photos I've seen) to be anywhere near 35!

      Lucky us...good gene pool! Mumsie, at 81, looks not a day over 65 (if only the body held up as well as the face).

      I'll be back to wish you a Happy One...on Friday, don't want to spoil you too much! :)

    5. there was just too much trouble in these regions during my life and we never had the chance to really live, so it's difficult feeling satisfied when at 35 you still don't have (and will never have) a house, a steady career, solid income.... That is something we have to live with here - the absence of security and stability.

      Thanks for thinking I look younger :)

    6. I can't even imagine, Dezzie, what that must be like.
      Funny thing about life is how we choose to live it; in the moment, or in regret.

      Although you do not speak of yourself here at Hollywood Spy I have always ascertained from your wonderful comments, all over Blogger, that you are basically a happy man - full of vitality and joy.
      That speaks volumes in my books because it says you are making the most of your life... even with all the uncertainty.

      I admire you. Hugs, Jenny

  7. I'm passing on the Hawke flick. It seems dull and well, done already - twice. Seriously, though, I've never been a fan of him. He's not talented in my opinion.

    I saw the beautiful Olivia in a movie yesterday. She was stunning, as always! The movie wasn't very good but she was.

    1. yep, Hawke has no talent whatsover and is also a very strange men in choosing his roles. He now has a trailer out for his extremely strange new film THE PURGE. I've shivered while watching it.

  9. I look at Olivia Wilde and all I see is 13 from House.

  10. I didn't see the first two Hawke films, so I imagine I'll take a pass on this one, too.

    1. that's a good decision, Donna :)

  11. I'm swallowing my pride and admitting that Olivia is kind of growing on me. I still think she has a very long way to to be in the same league as Emily and Amy, but she's not grating on me anymore.

    Never knew why Before Sunrise got a sequel as I thought it was just alright. And now a third, sheesh!
