KELLAN LUTZ IS THE NEW "TARZAN"! JOSEPH GORDON LEVITT IN "LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS"! "SELFLESS" SF FLICK! "MIDNIGHT SUN" ADVENTURE

Now the last time we've seen Hollywood hunk and Twilight star Kellan Lutz he was playing mighty Poseidon in Tarsem's mega epic
IMMORTALS. If we can believe the reports from "The Hollywood Reporter" he will again play in an adventurous film: he will be new TARZAN in a brand new Constantine films adaptation of the famous Edgar Rice Burrough's novel. The sad news is that it will be performance-capture 3D production.In the update, Tarzan's parents are killed in an airplane crash rather than being stranded with their child. Jane is the daughter of an African guide and is committed to the conservation and preservation of the African jungle. The film's bad guy is the CEO of Greystoke Energies, a man who took over the company from Tarzan's deceased parents. Tarzan and Jane eventually work together to defeat the mercenary army of Greystoke Energies.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Since I know how much
you lurve remakes :), here's a new one:according to "Variety" Joseph Gordon Levitt might star in the remake of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS playing Seymour Kilborn, a meek florist who must continue to feed his gigantic plant, which feasts on humans, to secure his newfound fame and fortune. Also according to "Variety" we shall watch a new sf thriller in the future. Titled SELFLESS it will follow a wealthy older man, who discovers he is dying and pays to have his mind transplanted into a younger man's body. When he discovers how his new body was acquired, he defies the company that provided it and is hunted by mercenaries.

 And if like your spy you love heartwarming animal tales similar to FREE WILLY, DOLPHIN TALE and BIG MIRACLE, you will be glad to hear that we shall have a new Arctic adventure MIDNIGHT SUN!  Directed by Hugh Hudson (CHARIOTS OF FIRE) it will follow a young boy, Luke, who defies the dangerous elements of nature to reunite
an abandoned polar bear cub with its mother. Luke is aided by Muktuk, a half Inuit and half Canadian, who knows the terrain where polar bears live like the back of his hand. But they are soon separated on the floating ice of the high Arctic, and Luke and the cub are left to protect themselves from bear attacks, giant icebergs, and vicious windstorms.

I'm really excited about the prospect of a Little Shop of Horrors remake. I loved the Frank Oz musical, so this should be pretty cool. What are the odds they'll cast Zooey Deschanel as Audrey?

DEZMOND said...

I've no idea, Jamie, but I know the film has a lot of fans from the 80's :)

Michael Offutt, Phantom Reader said...

OMG....

What have you done to me?

*drool

Wow

DEZMOND said...

what you asked yourself :PPP

Pat Hatt said...

I have never watched the first little shop of horrors or second? Wasn't there already a remake? But either way remakes suck, they can shove em.

The polar bear one I'm sure will be good, always like animal flicks, when they aren't some cgi bs making their mouthes move and such. Tarzan huh, what this? The 56th time Tarzan has been done?..lol..Selfless doesn't sound too bad, kind of like the 6th day meets Face/off.

DEZMOND said...

I've never seen the original either.
This one will be a performance capture TARZAN and nobody usually likes those :(

Luanne G. Smith said...

With an actor who looks like that in a loin cloth, why are they going performance capture for Tarzan? Hmm? BIG mistake. :))

Elsie Amata said...

I tried clicking on the picture of Lutz but it didn't show anything more revealing...I thought it'd be like the other day's pic...maybe the link is broken? =P =P

I probably won't watch Tarzan unless it comes out on HBO. As hot as he is, the story doesn't interest me in the least.

Now the polar bears, that sounds simply adorable! I mean, just look at the picture!!! How cute!

Grace said...

Mmm...my eyes are having a hard time digesting the news here ...okay...why Tarzan in performance capture only ~ disappointing ~

the Polar bear movie looks good ~

Kristin Rae said...

awwww look at Joseph in his little suit! precious! <3

Jax said...

That man will be playing Tarzan? As in a movie where he never wears a shirt? Excuse me while I go add that to my must see list... ;)

Unknown said...

You Tarzan, me Anne. Oh yeah, oh yeah. Now he's got a vine I could definitely swing on. I do want to the Polar Bears movie. I love to look at those animals, so dangerous yet so beautiful.

I'm so glad you're back. The cat was getting rather smug with both of us away. We will begin smiting him again on the morrow.

RCB said...

@Anne - You mean, the Polar Bears movie would be to cool off a bit after the You Tarzan, me Anne business? ;)

Content Hedgehog said...

Oh man, cutting it close there with Mr. Luts, lol.

RCB said...

performance-capture 3D... that is bad news. Well, I'm sure it won't be as bad as THIS Tarzan. Till this very day I don't understand why anyone raised by animals should develop a sense of fashion and wear improvised shorts. My goodness, I remember seeing that movie at our local theater... It was terrible. Bo was fine, though.

Unknown said...

After swinging on that vine, I'd definitely need arctic cold. You'd see the steam coming off me and the permafrost would crack when you dunked me in.

Novroz said...

I have never heard of Little Shop of Horrors before...was it good?

DEZMOND said...

That was my reaction exactly, sister! What a waste, what a waste! Especially since Kellan is rather shameless and would mind showing all in the film :)

DEZMOND said...

ah, you are no such luck as you were a few days ago, sister :) Rarely are male celebs brave enough to do what Duhamel did :)

We do like polar bears, when they are not eating baby seals :(

DEZMOND said...

deeply disappointing, Grace!

DEZMOND said...

oh, I'd kill to have such an outfit and such a petite body to wear it :)

DEZMOND said...

yep, add it alongside THE FOUNTAIN in spite of the ebil cat :)

DEZMOND said...

@Annzie
LOL that would a swinging to remember :)
I hear cat didn't spare us at all. What kind of ebil feline attacks people when they're hanging on a cliff??? Thank god, I left Elsie and Jaxy and LG in charge of the Alliance so they gave him a few punches.

DEZMOND said...

@Blue
if she ever wants to cool off next to such a Tarzan!

DEZMOND said...

I often cut it close :)))) but never cross the border :)

DEZMOND said...

oh, my, I'm loving the body on that Tarzan of yours even if he was a horrid actor :)
I've seen the Tarzan version with lovely Casper van Diem too, he's a husband of a daughter of the Serbian princess Elizabeth.

DEZMOND said...

I've no idea, I was a small kid when it was out :)

Unknown said...

Elsie was good on the attack against that horrible cat. Jax is one of his minions now darling. She's openly asked to be a General in his army of poo. He told her she couldn't be a General, just a minion, so I think we should be nice to her. It's not her fault he's a monster.

Unknown said...

Casper is a nice specimen and here's a great pic of him http://wetmen.provocateuse.com/show/casper_van_dien/03

nom nom nom

DEZMOND said...

he is also quite a nice man, he and the princess have about six children all together ;)

DEZMOND said...

what? Jaxy did that, after I told her we will make her a general in our alliance if she fights against the cat? From now on, she is a traitor for us, a traitor! Let the cat have her. we don't need her! And to do this to us when we were in a tough situation?

Adam said...

My girlfriend would like the last one, she loves polar bears

DEZMOND said...

you should take her to see it when it gets done, then!

Wandering Coyote said...

I love how you gave the polar bears their own little celebrity picture! They are very cool animals, and they will be the stars of that movie!

Unknown said...

"Feed me, Seymour!" LSH was a great musical. Jack Nicholson was in the original playing a masochistic dentist. How awesome that JGL will be in it.

Kellan Lutz is pretty to look at for sure. I think I drooled on my keyboard. ;)

DEZMOND said...

they do deserve it in the eye candy section since they're the sweetest :)

DEZMOND said...

you're our most drooling guest, you know, sister Melsy :)))

Pat Hatt said...

Pffft Jax is a minion of the cat's there is nothing you can do. For with the Blue Guy the alliance is toast.

Pat Hatt said...

Pfft if you put any movie beside The Fountain it might get a stench.

Pat Hatt said...

Yeah I never like those much at all either, wish they'd stop making them.

DEZMOND said...

you and your illusions, cat, they help you deal with harsh truth :)

DEZMOND said...

wish they never even invented it. And we have another TIN TIN coming in the same technique :(

Unknown said...

I love the animal films but I find them difficult to watch. They are just too sad, and make me angry at the state the world is in. But, I'll watch Levitt.

Elsie Amata said...

mmmm, dreamy Duhamel!!

now I'm sad...polar bears eating baby seals...Dez!! Ignorance is bliss..

DEZMOND said...

hopefully this one will have a happy ending.

DEZMOND said...

it's true, as much as they look cuddly and cute, polar bears actually eat penguins, baby seals and polar foxes :(((

RCB said...

I think the three of us should make the definity Tarzan: The triplet. Anne could be our Mom.

RCB said...

T.O.A.S.T.?

RCB said...

Meaning Dezz is still very young.... Little Shop of Horrors is a strange movie about a big plant. You like it or you hate it.

DEZMOND said...

and Novia is just a bit older than moi :)

DEZMOND said...

put some butter on it, Blue...
