According to "Variety" three young stars Dave Franco (James' gay brother), Hailee Steinfeld (from TRUE GRIT) and Deborah Ann Woll (TRUE BLOOD) have been offered roles in ROSALINE,
a period movie adaptation of Rebecca Serle's debut novel "When You Were Mine". In Shakespeare's famous "Romeo and Juliet," Rosaline was the woman Romeo first claimed to have loved from afar before he became  enamored with Juliet. The story in ROSALINE finds Romeo's jilted ex-girlfriend telling her side of the story. Franco and Hailee would play Romeo and Juliet, which is a bit strange since Hailee is already playing Juliet in Julian Fellowe's adaptation of the famous play beside Douglas Boot. The film will be directed by Michael Sucsy whose touching drama THE VOW with Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams is coming out next February.
Well, this one sounds interesting, as "Deadline" reports, Reese Witherspoon and Jason Segal are ready to take the lead roles in
Sony's comedy SEX TAPE. The studio has paid a seven figure sum for the screenplay about a married couple who take a night off from their kids, decide to get adventurous and spice things up by making a private sex tape. When they wake up, the tape is gone and they go on a desperate search to find it. MovieWeb reports that 20th Century Fox has picked up RIDERS ON THE STORM, an unusual and original adventurous thriller in which the story revolves around a group of thieves who use severe weather conditions to their advantage. It could turn into a potential franchise.

Well, it was only a few days ago that I mentioned new stop motion animated flick PARANORMAN which should hit cinemas next year, and now the first trailer has already been released.  Check it out bellow. As you recall, the story of the film is  set in a small
town which comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst of all, moronic grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits. I hated the idea with the music in the trailer.
 And don't forget to visit Scottie's FRONT ROOM CINEMA because he's giving away four movie DVD's. Pop over and say hello :)


  1. I think the music worked in the trailer. And that is one of my favorite pics of Deborah. Glad you choose it :)

  2. I think the music killed all the thrills and excitement in the trailer :) Glad you like the pic. I'm sure boys will like it :)

  3. Ooh, I'll have to check out that novel about Rosaline.

    Paranorman looks funny. Don't know if it would freak out younger kids, though. It would have scared me when I was little.

  4. I think it's more of a Tim Burtonish stop motion flick, not something for kids :)
    And ROSALINE book does seem interesting and unique

  5. Rosaline's premise sounds interesting. I like the casting, too. Though weird that Hailee will play Juliet in two separate movies.

    And I'll be looking forward to the Reese and Jason SEgel movie! HE's funny!!

  6. I'm guessing this with Hailee is just some gossip mix up, because I can't really believe she would play the same role twice,especially since she doesn't really look like Juliet :)

  7. A Seven figure sum for a comedy over a sex tape, damn no wonder there is no originality anymore..haha

  8. ah, just throw in sex word in the title of your screenplay and it will sell in a blink of eye :)

  9. Rosaline looks good. Can't wait to see what they make of it.

  10. Dezzy; you changed your shirt :)

    I'm not enthused about any of these; and there is something wrong with my net book. I can't view any video's. Gotta get that checkout real soon.

    Have a lovely weekend.


  11. hehe Thanks for the linkage Dezzy. I will get your prize off today hopefully!!


  12. @Clarissa
    glad you like it, hope the movie will be fine

    I've changed it for the Halloween and then after it I'm back to my orange outfit with leaves until the first snow comes down, and then I'm throwing on my polar outfit :) Gotta set the trends when you are stylish fashion icon like moi :))))

  13. @Scottie
    be welcome, and thanks for the DVD again :) I'm sure Jason can't wait to see me :) And don't blame me if millions of people invade your place after this link :))) Although, it IS Saturday, the day with the lowest visits in the week so it might be just me who is popping over :)

  14. That PARANORMAN looks like fun.

  15. That was awesome. I also found this funny video on Youtube by a Canadian comedian. You might want to check it out.

  16. Paranorman looks odd.
    And sorry, just a bit too much nakedness today.

  17. I liked the trailer of ParaNorman. (:

  18. @Southpaw
    it should be an interesting one :)


    but there's just one seminaked lady

    glad you did :)

  19. This trailer makes me want to see ParaNorman even more. Rosaline sounds like an interesting story as does Sex Tape. I adore Reese.

  20. Reese often saves the film :) Just has that special screen presence which a lot of today's stars don't have.

  21. not sure if paranorman's going to end up being just a little too funky to connect after seeing that trailer.

    i'd watch jason segal in anything!

    and! rosaline sounds like a really cute idea! something new, and i'm betting you're right about the hailey news being all mixed up.

  22. My first thought was "Reese and Jason are together? That's a weird couple?"

    Also, if you have anymore pics of Deborah, you know where to send them.

  23. I will have to see that trailer again once my net connection is better than these past few days :(
    Riders on the storm sounds intriguing. I want to know more about that movie.

  24. @Vics
    yep, I'm not sure either. It could be weird instead of cute.

    and I thought people would really expect to see their sex tape here :) Thought it would boost my stats counter :)))

    it could be an interesting one!
