MARION COTILLARD IS MICHAEL FASSBENDER'S LADY 'MACKBETH'! ELIZABETH OLSEN IS SCARLET WITCH IN 'AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON'? AMAZING 'THE BOOK THIEF' WW2 TRAILER WITH GEOFFREY RUSH! HAYLEY ATWELL JOINS 'CINDERELLA'

ELIZABETH OLSEN TO PLAY
 SCARLET WITCH IN AVENGERS II?
According to latest rumours Saoirse Ronan has passed on the role of Scarlet Witch in THE AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON and the frontrunner for the role has now become Elizabeth Olsen! Joss Whedon has previously revealed that he has imagined the role of Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch with Saoirse in mind. Scarlet Witch can control probabilities while her twin brother Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver has the power of superspeed. Aaron Johnson is rumoured for that role. The film, which will see the return of Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Rufallo and others, will start shooting next February. After a number of dramatic roles, Elizabeth Olsen is moving over to blockbusters starting next year with GODZILLA in which she already stars with Aaron Johnson!

HAYLEY ATWELL JOINS
KENNETH BRANAGH'S 'CINDERELLA'
Kenneth Branagh's movie adaptation of fairy tale CINDERELLA has another cast member: Hayley Atwell will play Cinderella's mother who appears at the beginning of the film. She joins Lily James in the lead role, Cate Blanchett as the stepmother, Richard Madden as the prince, Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother, Holly Grainger and Sophie McShera as the stepsisters, Stellan Skarsgard as the Grand Duke.
MARION COTILLARD JOINS MICHAEL FASS- BENDER IN 'MACBETH'
Good news also come from the new adaptation of MACKBETH! It seems that Michael Fassbender, who is taking the lead role in the Justin Kurzel directed movie, will get a decent wife in the film. Instead of the previous horrid choice of weak and bland Natalie Portman, the role of lady Macbeth will go to Marion Cotillard! The film will be set in war torn 11th century Scotland.

THE BOOK THIEF WW2 TRAILER
WITH GEOFFREY RUSH
20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for the movie adaptation of Markus Zuzak's novel THE BOOK THIEF which will open up in theatres this November starring Geoffrey Rush! This drama tells the inspirational story of a spirited and courageous young girl who transforms the lives of everyone around her when she is sent to live with a new family in World War II Germany. Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson play her adoptive parents whose lives, together with their whole German town, will change forever when she begins stealing books and sharing them with others!

  1. I still find it interesting that Chris Evans is both Johnny Storm and Steve Rogers. As far as Elizabeth Olsen goes, I'm okay with that choice. It's nice to have a relative unknown in a role sometimes, without expectations from their previous work.

  2. Can't say I've seen any of her work but, at a glance, Olsen seems to have the right look for Scarlet Witch. As for Cotillard, I think she'd make a killer Lady Macbeth. I have nothing against Portman, but she would have been an entirely wrong choice for the role.

    1. she mostly played in dramas, a talented girl they say... she recently shot THERESE RAQUIN here in my country.
      I gave up on Mackbeth when they cast UnImportant Natalie, but now I'm excited again with Marion, although if you ask me Cate Blanchett would've been the best choice :)

  17. The Book Thief looks to be one of those films that everyone needs to see because it speaks to our universal humanity. We can learn that although times have changed, truth has not. Hope and words are eternal.
