RODRIGO SANTORO JOINS 'PELE' BIOPIC! IS DOMINIC COOPER PLAYING FREDDIE MERCURY IN QUEEN'S FRONTMAN BIOPIC? TRAILER FOR JACKIE CHAN'S ACTION PACKED ADVENTURE 'CZ12'

  'PELE' SOCCER BIOPIC GETS
RODRIGO SANTORO, DIEGO BONETA, VINCENT D'ONOFRIO
Here's something for my soccer loving boys! Upcoming movie on famous soccer player PELE is slowly gathering its cast! 'Pele' tells the miraculous story of the legendary soccer player's rise to glory from a young boy to the 17-year-old player who scored the winning goal in Brazil's first ever World Cup victory in 1958. From a life full of disadvantages and an impoverished youth in Brazil, Pele used his unorthodox yet authentic style of play and his unbeatable spirit to overcome all odds, find greatness and inspire a country that he changed forever. The cast includes Rodrigo Santoro (300), Vincent D'Onofrio, Diego Boneta (ROCK OF AGES), Colm Meaney (STAR TREK), and Brian Grazer as one of the producers!

  DOMINIC COOPER TO PLAY
QUEEN'S FREDDIE MERCURY? 
Yet, another biopic on a famous person, this one on the leader and singer of glorious rock group  QUEEN, FREDDIE MERCURY, is currently courting Dominic Cooper for the lead role. After the living members of the band have refused for horrid Sacha Baron Cohen to get the lead role and thus mock the late singer, Dominic has become the new candidate. It is also not known who will direct the film on the frontman who created hits such as BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, I WANT IT ALL, I WANT TO BREAK FREE, THE SHOW MUST GO ON, RADIO GAGA, WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER, but apparently THE KING'S SPEECH and LES MISERABLES helmer Tom Hooper is the lead contender.

  JACKIE CHAN'S 'CZ12' ACTION
 PACKED ADVENTURE TRAILER
And to finish our Man Friday :) here's a trailer for new Jackie Chan's action packed movie CZ12 which hits the big screens in a few weeks. Directed and starring Chan as Asian Hawk the movie follows the character who leads a mercenary team to recover several lost artifacts from the Old Summer Palace, the bronze heads of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals which were looted by foreigners in the 1800s. Assisted by a Chinese student and a Parisian lady, Hawk stops at nothing to accomplish the mission. The cast also includes Oliver Platt and Kwon Sang Woo. It is the highest grossing action ever in China and the second highest grossing of all films in China ever. It is also the film with the highest number of stunts performed by one actor.

  7. I'm glad they vetoed Sacha. While my husband finds humor in his movies, I am simply repulsed by the guy!
