Charismatic young Brit Eddie Redmayne (whom we loved in THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH and BLACK DEATH) has joined equally charismatic beauty Blake Lively in HICK. An adaptation of the novel that follows a 13-year-old girl running away from Nebraska to Las Vegas will have Lively playing a grifter who meets the girl on the road and takes her under her wing, while Redmayne will play another loner who tries luring the girl away and also shares a past with Lively. Eddie Redmayne will also be seen in MY WEEK WITH MARYLIN alongside Michelle Williams next year.

Today you can check out the first trailer for romantic drama SOMETHING BORROWED about Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) a talented attorney at a top New York law firm, a generous and loyal friend and, unhappily, still single... as her engaged best friend Darcy (Kate Hudson) is constantly reminding her. But after one drink too many at her 30th birthday party, good girl Rachel unexpectedly ends up in bed with the guy she's had a crush on since law school, Dex (Colin Egglesfield), who just happens to be Darcy's fiancé. When Rachel and Darcy's lifelong friendship collides with true love, it leads to unexpected complications and potentially explosive romantic revelations. Meanwhile, Ethan (John Krasinski), who has been Rachel's constant confidante and sometimes conscience, has been harboring a secret of his own. The charming film is out this May.
