Today we are swamped with casting news, so here we go right away: Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt and Kristin Scott Thomas will go "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen". This whimsical story follows a henpecked, slightly pompous middle-aged scientist from London who is approached by a mysterious sheik about an outlandish plan to introduce the sport of salmon fishing into the Yemen. Through his diaries, from beginning to glorious, tragic end, mixed with government memos, e-mails, letters, and interview transcripts the film will deftly capture the absurdity of bureaucratic dysfunction.
Jamie Foxx, Colin Farrell, Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston will all star in "Horrible Bosses", a movie about three longtime friends who all become so fed up with their jobs they decide to kill their bosses.
The tandem from my favourite movie "Murriel's Wedding", Toni Collette and P.J Hogan will reunite in "Mental" the story about Collette's character, a bizarre, eccentric woman who turns a family's life upside down when she becomes the nanny for their five young children. The story is based on P.J. Hogan's real life hilarious, outrageous, dangerous, courageous, inspiring, heartbreaking and totally, totally mad nanny.
Katherine Heigl has signed on for "The Age of Adaline". The film will follow a young woman born at the turn of 20th century, who is rendered ageless after an accident. After years of a solitary life, she meets a man who might be worth losing her immortality.
Shirley MacLaine and Christina Ricci have joined John Corbett, Maria Bello and Bill Pullman in "Wild Oats". Shirley will play a widow who is living the quiet life. She ends up with a cash windfall and goes to Las Vegas with her granddaughter played by Ricci.
