PATRICK WILSON IN "STRETCH"! EDDIE REDMAYNE IN "THEORY OF EVERYTHING" AS STEPHEN HAWKING? SANDRA BULLOCK IS CRANKY MISS HANNIGAN IN REMAKE OF "ANNIE"?

 PATRICK WILSON
 WILL "STRETCH" A BIT
One of HOLLYWOOD SPY's favourite male actors Patrick Wilson has just boarded STRETCH. The story of this action comedy follows a downtrodden man (Patrick Wilson) who becomes the limo driver for an eccentric billionaire (Chris Pine). Little does he know that his boss is about to make his life a living hell. Ed Helms will play limo driver's colleague. Although he is an outstanding drama actor, Patrick Wilson will be seen mostly in horrors this year - in THE CONJURING with Vera Farmiga and in INSIDIOUS 2 next to Rose Byrne! Next year he will be a husband of a bipolar and compulsive woman played by Katherine Heigl in NORTH OF HELL.

 EDDIE REDMAYNE IS
STEPHEN HAWKING IN THEORY OF EVERYTHING
Yet another of HOLLYWOOD SPY's absolutely favourite actors, LES MISERABLES, BIRDSONG and THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH star Eddie Redmayne, could get another new gig too: Deadline reports that he might take the role of famous genius Stephen Hawking in THEORY OF EVERYTHING. The movie will mostly focus on on the relationship between the famous physicist Hawking and his wife! Eddie is currently filming science fiction epic JUPITER ASCENDING for Wachovsky siblings in which the story is set in a future where humans are considered the lowest form of life in the galaxy. Channing Tatum stars as an intergalactic bounty hunter who is sent by the Queen of the Universe to kill an Earth woman (Mila Kunis) whose genetic traits are identical to the Queen's!

 SANDRA BULLOCK IS
 MISS HANNIGAN IN "ANNIE" REMAKE
Well, this is certainly entertaining: Sandra Bullock is in talks to take a role in the new remake of famous musical ANNIE! Believe it or not, Sandy will play naughty Miss Hannigan, the infamous cranky lady who runs and terrorizes the orphanage that Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis) stays in before being taken in by Daddy Warbucks (Jamie Foxx). We all remember Carol Burnett's famous portrayal of the character in the 80's original film. Sandra Bullock is busy this year: she first has the premier of hilarious comedy THE HEAT in which she and Melissa McCarthy play two totally different cops, and then she will play an astronaut stuck in space in GRAVITY next to George Clooney.

  1. Eddie Redmayne would make a good Stephen Hawking.

    And I can't help it, The Heat is one of the movies I'm most looking forward to this summer. :P

    1. it could finally bring him a well deserved Oscar!
      There was a scandal around THE HEAT this week over in UK because the Brits photoshopped Melissa to look skinnier on the poster. Cretins.....

    2. I saw that. The retouching was so overdone it reminded me of this

    3. oooh, but I loved the work of that nice cleaning lady :) And her enthusiasm to do it reveals a rebellious character :) They should've let her paint the whole church :)

  2. I like Eddie Redmayne too -- he's ultra-talented! And Stephen Hawking would be a challenge for any actor to portray.

    1. he always leaves me mesmerized with his roles, has that deeply charismatic and magnetic presence similar to Cate Blanchett.

    1. fingers crossed. Can't be any worse than Will Smith's initial plans to give Annie role to his horridly talentless brat of a daughter.

    2. I used to like Will Smith.. until he tried to turn his kids into superstars. That makes me sick. What doesn't make me sick is finding Sandra knocking on my door. And then I wake up, I know.

    3. yep, Will and Jada and their talentless brats are menace to society.

    4. thank God they didn't put their daughter on the poster too. That kid is more stupid than Justin Bieber, and I'm ashamed to say that as a teacher.

  8. I loved Patrick in Insidious...I can't wait for the next installment. ;)

    Sandra is awesome, my fave movie of hers is still While You Were Sleeping. Heat is going to be great, too.

    1. I adore Patrick, he is one of the very very few American thespians. Loved him in ANGELS IN AMERICA and in LITTLE CHILDREN and in WATCHERS too.

  9. I can't quite picture Sandra as cranky Miss Hannigan and I'm not a big fan of comedies plus I saw the previews and as much as I like Sandra, they didn't interest me. But who is this Patrick Wilson fellow and why does his face look familiar? I can't place him in anything but I'm sure I've seen him in something. He's kind of cute :)

    1. What? Marcy, you've never heard of Patrick Wilson? But he is one of the most renowned American actors - one of the very few we could really call actors and not just stars. He starred in LITTLE CHILDREN with Kate Winslet, in WATCHMEN, in famous TV series ANGELS IN AMERICA with Meryl Streep, in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA with Gerard Butler, he had A GIFTED MAN TV drama two years ago...
