According to "Deadline" two popular and beloved British stars Colin Firth and Emily Blunt could soon star together. They will
star in an untitled comedy written by Becky Johnston (THE PRINCE OF TIDES, SEVEN YEARS ON TIBET), in which Colin Firth will be a man who hates his job and is hated by his ex-wife and son. Feeling he missed his one shot at living the dream, he fakes his death and buys a new identity. Along the way he meets a woman (Emily Blunt) who is also trying to leave her past behind. The pair break into empty homes and pose as the absent owners. The two find a kinship despite all the lying.
Now, this is quite a strange twist to the classic story I must say: based off characters from the J.M. Barrie famous story, a new
thriller PAN will see Aaron Eckhart and Anna Sophia Robb portraying Hook and Wendy, although they will not be the same characters from the storybook. Hook is actually a modern-day detective, tormented by a kidnapper. Wendy is the lone survivor of this kidnapper, who leaves an asylum to help Hook track him down. Sean Bean is also a part of this cast in which he will take the role of Smee, the head detective who is Hook's only friend on the police force.
Check out a charming new trailer for this summer's comedy THE CHANGE-UP, in which popular comedian Jason Bateman
plays a married guy and a responsible family man who switches bodies with his best friend a lazy man-child played by Ryan Reynolds who wants to woo his co-worker by presenting a different image of himself. Premiering August 5th, this charming comedy also stars gorgeous Olivia Wilde and Leslie Mann besides legendary Alan Arkin. The film is directed by David Dobkin (whom we remember from WEDDING CRASHERS and SHANGHAI KNIGHTS) and written by the screenwriters of THE HANGOVER.
Pan sounds intriguing! I love it when classics are retold from another character's point of view. It's often a whole new perspective.ReplyDelete
ahh... The Change Up. I really like both those guys, but somehow this story feels done.ReplyDelete
Know what your Pan made me think of? Pan's Labrynth. I really liked that film very much~
Have a great weekend, D! <3
That Pan sounds pretty darned good and way better than the usual fairy tale version. Plus, it has Sean in it! :DReplyDelete
it could be quite interesting in a weird way :)
yep, but it will be a nice little movie for weekend fun :)
Have a nice weekend yourself, Leigh, hope the house hunting is going well.
ah, someone likes Sean :))What is it about Sean and ladies?
Definitely Hooked on Pan! The Colin Firth-Emily Blunt piece sounds intriguing, but why are 40 and 50 something men always paired with 20 something women in these films? Guess that's all part of the "fantasy." ;)ReplyDelete
Melsy, I think they paired them up because they are both wonderfully British :)))ReplyDelete
Another Sean Bean fan here! I'd watch anything he's in.ReplyDelete
The Change Up looks kind of fun. Jason Bateman makes me laugh, but I agree it isn't the most original premise.
@Lana Smith :)ReplyDelete
yep, ladies are obsessed with Bean :)
Bateman is always funny in a nice and well-behaved way which I prefer.
Hey, I might still go with Rhiannon or Morgana. You don't know. :PReplyDelete
What fun :) Pan sounds interesting. Of course, I'd watch for Sean Bean alone . .ReplyDelete
Not about The Change up though. I really like Justin Bateman, but I'm burnt out of body switching movies.
Wow! Emily Blunt has such beautiful eyes :)ReplyDelete
And, I want to be Ryan Reynolds in that Change-Up poster!
Ryan reynolds is a beast! I love that guy!ReplyDelete
nice to see justin bateman working again. that movie sounds pretty derivative though.ReplyDelete
What have they done to Peter Pan? Of course, I'll watch it because Sean Bean is in it, and playing another good guy I hope. Thanks Dezz for the news.ReplyDelete
what about Igreyn, Morgana is also lovely although a bit spooky thanks to Arthur's naughty sister :)
glad you like it, Donna :) There's a new Justin Bateman movie trailer coming up later today :)
she's beautiful all over her body :) and the second thing could be arranged :)
indeed he is :)
Yep, it's a generic plot, but he has another, more original one, coming out tonight at HOLLYWOOD SPY :)
they are trying to ruin all possible fairy tales :( Be welcome :)
I'm not sure about Pan. While i think a modern take on a classic fairytale could work, it sounds so different from the original i don't see much of a semblance.ReplyDelete
It's true, Dirty, it could be too dark and too weird.ReplyDelete
pan sounds very interesting... it's such a unique idea to make peter the villain, creeping in children's windows and kidnapping them to neverneverland... it could definitely work. especially with the talent of sean bean and anna sophia robb in it.ReplyDelete
that picture of emily blunt is particularly beautiful, classy, and dreamlike.
Emsy is always beautiful, remember the pics I've posted when she won two of our polls? :)ReplyDelete
Sean Bean is absolutely amazing in GAME OF THRONES, I hope you're watching it, I think you'd enjoy it greatly.
I'm pretty sure it's Jason Bateman, not Justin :) Looks funny!ReplyDelete
it is Jason :)))ReplyDelete
Oh how lovely is Emily in that photo... she really is a luminous beauty. Blunt and Firth in a dark comedy together?? Sign me up! Talk about the best of British talents.ReplyDelete
Pan sounds interesting, I certainly like the cast, especially Sean Bean!
Colin n' Emily in a film, should be brilliant; Pan sounds intriguing. The Change Up has that Freaky Friday vibe; yes it has been done, but not in this way. Looks zany~ReplyDelete
she is, I used that pic before too but in a different shade and people loved it back then as well :) The whole photo shoot is lovely.
Sean Bean is absolutely amazing these days in GAME OF THRONES.
they really should be brilliant :)
I guess it's just me, but it sounds like pure laziness that they used Hook and Wendy as the names, despite it not really having any story attachment to Peter Pan (at least it doesn't sound like it). I mean, couldn't they have used any other names? And Change-up is just a twist on that same old idea of two people swapping bodies. I'm pretty sure that's been done to death. Meh.ReplyDelete
