SECOND 'GRAVITY' SF TRAILER WITH SANDRA BULLOCK & GEORGE CLOONEY! RYAN GOSLING, ZAC EFRON, JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS FOR 'STAR WARS 6'? EWAN MCGREGOR, GWYNETH PALTROW, JOHNNY DEPP IN 'MORTDECAI'! JENSEN ACKLES NEW BATMAN?

 JOHNNY DEPP'S MORTDECAI
GETS EWAN MCGREGOR & GWYNETH PALTROW
Now, here is an interesting casting: some time ago I've informed you that Johnny Depp has taken the lead role in MORTDECAI and now "Variety" reports that he might be joined in the film by Ewan McGregor and Gwyneth Paltrow! The project will be a movie adaptation of  "The Great Mortdecai Moustache Mystery" novel by Kyril Bonfiglioli in which the plot revolves around an art dealer named Charles Mortdecai (Johnny Depp), who goes out in search of a stolen painting rumoured to contain the code that provides access to hidden Nazi gold. All three of them had big films this year - Depp had a big flop in THE LONE RANGER, Gwyneth was in IRON MAN III while Ewan was delightful in lovely adventure JACK THE GIANT SLAYER.

  MAN OF STEEL & STAR WARS CASTING RUMOURS
 JENSEN ACKLES FOR BATMAN?
In short casting news today, I'm sure you've already heard that SUPERNATURAL star Jensen Ackles has expressed his wish to play Batman next to Henry Cavill's Superman in MAN OF STEEL 2. It is interesting that he was previously in the run to play Captain America but lost the role to Chris Evans. Armie Hammer was also previously mentioned for the new Batman. Meanwhile, FANTASTIC FOUR reboot is scheduled to start shooting this September which means we should soon expect an avalanche of casting news!
 ZAC EFRON, JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS, RYAN GOSLING IN STAR WARS?
Another big project STAR WARS VII is apparently courting Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron to play the kids of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are also expected to appear in the film. Previous rumours stated that Jonathan Rhys Meyers was the strongest candidate for the lead role. Leonardo Dicaprio allegedly turned down the role opting to rather do ROBOTECH. The story will apparently be set 30 years after RETURN OF JEDI episode.

  INTO THE WOODS FINDS ITS
RAPUNZEL AND HER PRINCE 
And the exciting musical fantasy movie, to be directed by Rob Marshall, INTO THE WOODS has found its Rapunzel and her prince: young MacKenzie Mauzy and Billy Magnussen will play the roles (Billy replaces Jake Gylenhaal). The film follows a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) who head into the woods to confront an evil witch (Meryl Streep), whose curse prevents the couple from ever having children. Travelling through the forest they encounter several classic fairy tale characters from Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) and her prince (Chris Pine) to the Big Bad Wolf (Johnny Depp)! Tracey Ullman is the mother of Jack the Giant Killer while Christine Baranski is portraying Cinderella's mean stepmother.


 NEW GRAVITY TRAILER
 SANDRA BULLOCK & GEORGE CLOONEY
In the video department today, you can check out the second trailer for upcoming science fiction drama GRAVITY with Sandra Bullock in the lead role. Opening in cinemas this October, and directed by Alfonso Cuaron, the $80 million space set film will have Sandra Bullock and George Clooney playing  astronauts who attempt to return to Earth after debris crashes into their space shuttle, leaving them drifting alone in orbit. The dramatic new trailer shows Sandra's medical engineer Dr Ryan Stone and Clooney's veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky separating from their craft.

DEZZY'S SCIENCE CLASS 
Did you know that Sandra and George couldn't hear each other without speakers in the open space if they were real astronauts? Since empty space has no air, you cannot hear any sounds there either, since sounds are made from the vibrations in the air. Apparently, even if a ship would explode near you in the open space you would just see it, not hear it!

  2. The trailers I've seen for Gravity so far look amazing . . . it's just too bad Sandra Bullock is one of the stars. She's tolerable in a comedy, but I just can't see her in a dramatic role like this.

    1. did you see her in CRASH? It is one of the deepest dramas I've ever seen and she was great in it. I can tolerate her, but not Clooney, he's a really bad actor who always plays himself.

  3. Be still my heart. I do so love Mr. McGregor! I can't even imagine him on screen with Mr. Depp. Swoon!

    I'm curiously terrified about the Star Wars casting....

    1. we do adore Ewan, both as actor and as person!

    2. Yep. He's just across the board a stand up guy. And completely hot!!!

    3. Also...that is a really great picture of him. I think I let out a little squeal when I saw it... Which was especially funny as I was sitting in a dental waiting room!!

    4. and then you imagined your dentist without pants and your tooth didn't hurt :P

    5. Ewwwww! No, no. I was a naughty mommy waiting for my son not thinking about Ewan's pants!

      By the way... the dictionary on my phone auto suggests a word after you type one in....something that makes sense following the previous. Of course McGregor has to follow Ewan!

      Delete
    6. Really? The phone suggest Ewan after McGregor? The machine are becoming so wise that they might take over the world from us soon....

    7. I feel a movie coming on....

    8. Perhaps Ewan McGregor (auto filled McGregor...) Could star!!!

    10. That's been on my cable a lot lately. Totally agree with you, but I LOVED seeing two of him!

  4. Wow, lots of good stuff here today Dez. Mortdecai looks like fun and it has a great cast (love Ewan), and Gravity is on my list - because I love a good scifi and I like George and Sandra, and damn, that's a nice pic of Jensen Ackles!

  5. Oh, my. Ewan has misplaced his trousers, someone has stolen half of Jensen's shirt, and Miss Mauzy seems to have popped her buttons. It must be scantily clad Friday. :P

    1. I will accept the blame for all those naughty mischiefs :) Ewan may or may not have forgotten his pants at my place :)

    2. That was a fun picture to scroll down over his dashing torso and then discover his pants were gone. Made me laugh. :)

  6. It's interesting to see what young actors get to play such classic roles.

    MORTDECAI sounds like it will be good.

    1. Yep, I've recently seen CRASH again and was again deeply touched by the characters and stories in it, and that scene when the Iranian storeowner shoots at that good young guy in the moment when his little daughter jumps into his arms never ceases to shake me deeply.

    2. Likewise. I've watched CRASH a couple of times now too. Special film. Loved the music too. Quite haunting.

  9. as long as George Clooney is never batman again, we'll be okay

  10. Not sure that is a flattering picture of Ewan ..

    Interesting line ups today. Luke and Han's kids huh? Hopefully not another saga that runs too long.

    Uck, I think I'm losing my happy thoughts. Time for bed.
