‘I Melt With You’ Sounds Interesting Now Thanks to Sasha Grey

Thursday, July 29 by

We haven't really been covering Mark Pellington's indie drama I Melt With You because it didn't have any porn stars attached. Suddenly, the project sounds a lot more interesting with the addition of Sasha Grey. The porn star has enjoyed a career reinvention recently and is building up an impressive resume by picking up roles that don't require her to spit on her hand.
I Melt With You stars non-porn actors Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, and Rob Lowe as friends who feel empty inside and decide to resurrect a pact from their college days. Grey will play "a free spirit who helps one of the men realize that nirvana can only be achieved by death." And deep-throating. Tons and tons of deep-throating. (THR)

Review: ‘Dinner for Schmucks’

Thursday, July 29 by

Dinner for Schmucks PG-13, 104m., 2010 Cast Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, Bruce Greenwood, Ron Livingston, Stephanie Szostack, Lucy Punch, David Walliams with Jemaine Clement, and Zach Galifianakis Directed by Jay…

Between Two Ferns with Steve Carell

Thursday, July 29 by

In the latest addition of "Between Two Ferns," guest Steve Carell turns the tables on host Zach Galifianakis. You'd think the two would have formed some semblance of a friendship on the set of Dinner for Schmucks, but Carell is completely on the defense right when the cameras start rolling. These interviews never fail to crack me up, and this one is definitely one of the best. Mainly because Carell has a big nose and Galifianakis is overweight.

Russell Brand To Wave His Sword Around In ‘Hawkwood’

Thursday, July 29 by

We haven't seen much out of Russell Brand besides his roles as Aldous Snow or when he goes on "The View" and references Joy Behar's lady parts. We'll see what he can do with his next two projects, where he'll portray a drunken millionaire and the Easter Bunny. Now it looks like he may follow those up as a legendary swordsman in Hawkwood.
20th Century Fox has picked up the pitch that has Brand playing John Hawkwood, a real-life swashbuckler from Renaissance times. It's reported that the script will be punched up and tailored more to Brand's comedy style. So keep an eye out for a John Hawkwood who awkwardly hosts basic cable awards shows and flirts with crones twice his age. (Deadline)

Del Toro, Cameron Go Climbing ‘At the Mountains Of Madness’

Thursday, July 29 by

Guillermo Del Toro's next directorial project will be At the Mountains of Madness, Latino Review is reporting.

Based on an H.P. Lovecraft novel, the film will tell the tale of a team of scientists who unwittingly awaken prehistoric creatures while on a mission in Antarctica. As you might imagine, they aren't friendly creatures, and bad things begin to happen.

James Cameron has taken some time off from cleaning the oil spill and saving the indigenous population of South America to produce the film, so I hope you like 3D.

‘Thor’ Trailer Leaks Online, Ruins Online Carpet

Thursday, July 29 by

'No matter how I shake and dance, the last two drops go in the pants.'
Good news. The Thor trailer from Comic-Con has been magically leaked onto the internet. Now, instead of fighting with a bunch of 20-something virgins for a spot in Hall H, you can watch the trailer from the comfort of your very own home. You don't even have to risk getting stabbed in the eye with a pen.
So, sit back and relax as the Norse God Thor is banished to Earth by another god who looks suspiciously like Anthony Hopkins. (Cinema Blend)

Paul Giamatti Stars as Nikita Khrushchev in ‘K Blows Top’

Thursday, July 29 by

I smell a rat…a big commie rat.

Actor Paul Giamatti has joined the cast of HBO's upcoming project, K Blows Top, and will portray Soviet Leader Nikita Khrushchev during his 13-day visit to the U.S in 1959. The title of the film, which is based on a book by the same name, comes from a New York Daily News’ headline describing a tantrum thrown by Khrushchev upon learning his scheduled trip to Disneyland had been postponed.

Tom Hanks’ Playtone will produce the project, along with HBO, and marks the second collaboration between Hanks and Giamatti on a historical film for the network. Hanks also produced John Adams, an HBO miniseries in which Giamatti played the lessor known brother of brewer and patriot, Samuel Adams. (Collider)

Hey Kids, Here’s the ‘Yogi Bear’ Trailer!

Wednesday, July 28 by

Earlier today we showed you the poster for the hybrid live-action/animation adaptation of Yogi Bear, and now the trailer has dropped for you kids to enjoy! And make no mistake, it's specifically for you kids! There are CGI bears and real people co-existing in harmony in a national park with pies! Pies and pic-i-nic baskets!
The film stars Dan Aykroyd as Yogi, Justin Timberlake as Boo Boo, Tom Cavanagh as Park Ranger Smith, and Anna Faris as a documentary filmmaker looking to exploit the talking bears! Do you know what exploit means, kids?! No?! Well then you probably don't know what chloroform means either!
Yogi Bear sneaks into theaters December 17, 2010!

Damon Lindelof May Rewrite ‘Alien’ Prequel

Wednesday, July 28 by

"Lost co-creator and series finale ruiner (flame war!) has closed a deal to rewrite the Alien Prequel, which will hopefully be directed by Ridley Scott. As you may or may not know, Ridley kinda did the first Alien movie. Hit me with the facts, Deadline:
In a development as vexing as a Lost plotline, studio insiders said that while Lindelof indeed met with Scott and the studio for that rewrite job, the exchange of ideas between them sparked a take that could well turn out to be a free-standing science fiction film. The studio will decide when Lindelof turns it in. Scott Free is producing and Lindelof's CAA reps closed his deal last night.
So basically Lindelof wins either way. He rewrites what's sure to be a blockbuster prequel to a film that was a seminal influence on him, or he gets paid to write an original sci-fi project. It's almost as big of a conundrum as deciding which Pop Tart I'll allow myself today. S'mores toasts better, but strawberry I can eat right out of the silver packaging…

Dreamworks Snatches Up Zach Galifianakis’s ‘Reply All’

Wednesday, July 28 by

A new comedy titled Reply All was pitched around town this week with Zach Galifianakis attached to star. Dreamworks heard that and snatched it up immediately. There's no logline yet, but it's got Zach and that's all that matters for big box office.
Still though, what could this thing be about? Judging by the title, I'm worried. It sounds like a crappy romantic comedy where Kristin Bell and Javier Bardem hate one another because of an email that was sent to the wrong recipients, but then they decide they love one another because he's a straight-talking repairman with a hidden talent for painting and she's a magazine editor. If television and movies have taught me anything, magazine editors always end up with straight-talking repairmen with a hidden talent for painting. It's science. (Deadline)

Fall TV Tips: The Lawyer Shows

Wednesday, July 28 by

Over the next few weeks I'll be breaking down the new fall TV shows, telling you what to watch and what to skip altogether. It's your choice if you want to listen to me, but before you make a decision, you should know that I own several television sets, so I'm somewhat of an expert on this subject.
Today we tackle the lawyer shows. Attorneys and law-types have long been fascinating subject matter for TV, from your grandparents’ love of “Perry Mason” to your ex-girlfriend’s obsession with “Ally McBeal.” Well now a new cycle of law shows are hitting the small screen this fall. And as is usually the dillio, some are worthy of your dedication, while others make jury duty seem more appealing.

‘Survivor’ Producers Guilty Of Age Descrimination

Wednesday, July 28 by

Brad Pitt is an old man for real this time. According to producers of CBS's "Survivor" that is. The show is taking an ageist position by pitting the 20 castmembers of "Survivor: Nicaragua" into two tribes: young and old. The old tribe will be made up of people 40 and over, while the young tribe will consist of those 30 and younger. Not sure what they plan to do with those between the ages of 30 and 40. Will they exterminate them a la Logan's Run? If so, I've gotta get my middle-aged ass the f*ck out of Nicaragua!! (Deadline)

‘Yogi Bear’ Poster Destroys Beautiful Picnic

Wednesday, July 28 by

Warner Bros. has unleashed the new poster for the live-action/animated Yogi Bear feature film. It showcases Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake, in bear form, hanging out amidst a cornucopia of ravaged picnic baskets. The worst part about it is that everything is only half-eaten. If they're going to ruin a slew of Sunday outings, they should at least destroy all the evidence. Park Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh) is going to have a sh*tfit when he sees what these mischievious bears have done. Real good example for Boo Boo, Yogi. REAL good.
Look for the trailer up later this afternoon. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some spoiled egg salad to attend to. (Yahoo)
