Longing for the halcyon days of popping flashbulbs and excited fans that came hand-in-hand with his performance in Freejack, Mick Jagger has decided to get back into the film game. He’s come up with a plot and hired A History of Violence writer Josh Olson to run it through his script-making brain machine. Tentatively titled, Tabloid, Jagger would play a disreputable international media mogul who seduces a young reporter into his world.

It’s being categorized as an “adult thriller.” Does this mean we’ll see Mick Jagger imitating Richard Branson and then crawling around on top of an actress four times his junior? While I can admit it would be fun to see him playing Branson, I have no interest in seeing his 68-year old, nude, greyhound-like form. Maybe this film is a good excuse to return to the old method of just showing clothes on the floor before dissolving to breakfast. (Deadline)

Oh. They already did that.

Good news for people who like things that are awesome. The Russian mob film Eastern Promises, starring Viggo Mortensen and directed by David Cronenberg may have a sequel picking up where the original left off.

It was only a matter of time before A Dangerous Method, A History of Violence, and Eastern Promises star Mortensen got back together with Cronenberg after sitting out the director’s next film Cosmopolis, which stars Robert Pattinson.

While Viggo didn’t exactly fill in a lot of gaps, he acknowledged that they’re cracking on the sequel, saying, ““I think that’s still a possibility, but something we’ll definitely do [together] I’m sure and I’m looking forward to it already, whatever it is.”

That makes two of us, Viggo.

The original closed with a twist ending that could have taken the story in any one of a number of directions, so they’re no doubt hacking out in what capacity that want Mortensen to be a total badass. Here’s to hoping they figure it out sooner rather than later.
