In case you thought the CW wasn’t going to find a young Carrie who somewhat resembles the old Carrie – they didn’t. The producers graciously went with AnnaSophia Robb, who has made a name for herself as Violet from Tim Burton‘s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and as the surfer who loses her arm to a shark in Soul Surfer.

In Carrie Diaries, Robb will play a younger version of Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw while she still lived in the midwest, long before she was cracking penis puns with her unfun friends at brunch.

Though an announcement is yet to be made about her love interest, in the style of Mr. Big, let’s just assume that it’s going to be the kid from the Footloose remake, only his name will be Gunnar, and he’ll work weekends at his dad‘s tractor dealership.

I’m excited already.

Eckhart, Bean, and Robb Join ‘Pan’, In Which Peter Pan Is A Depraved Kidnapper http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/eckhart-bean-and-robb-join-pan-in-which-peter-pan-is-a-depraved-kidnapper/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/eckhart-bean-and-robb-join-pan-in-which-peter-pan-is-a-depraved-kidnapper/#comments Tue, 10 May 2011 20:39:32 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211340 This project will forever serve as the benchmark against which all "gritty reboots" are measured.

“You can take your Channing Tatum, and you can stick him up your ass!”

That was one of the things that the producers of Pan said right before they inked Aaron Eckhart, AnnaSophia Robb, and Sean Bean. If you are anything like me and trying to immediately match these actors with the familiar roles, take a deep breath. The project is a re-imagining of the story in a very literal sense. According to this Screen Daily article, Eckhart will play Hook, “a tormented former detective on the trail of a childlike kidnapper.” Robb will play Wendy, the lone survivor of the kidnapper who aids in Hook’s pursuit. Sean Bean will be playing Smee, the only man Hook trusts on the force.

Hmmm. A childlike kidnapper sounds like it might just be the Peter Pan role. These producers just stepped on a steaming pile of “gritty” with this one. It will still be less than the Sandy Duncan version, though.

Guillermo del Toro, unsurprisingly, was originally set to direct this, but, in typical del Toro fashion, his eyes were bigger than his stomach and he found like three other projects he could use to freak people out. Ben Hibon, who is best known for crafting the animation sequence in Harry Party and the Deathly Hollows: Part 1, will be taking over helming duties.

If there was one critique of Soul Surfer‘s teaser trailer, it was that the film didn’t look nearly gross enough. Problem solved!

This new look at the film finally gets around to showing that shark attack that costs the protagonist her arm… but not her love of surfing. Did you hear that, sharks?! You can eat our arms but not our spirits!! Anyway, whereas the earlier trailer was wholesome and full of hugs, this new one spends way too much time showing off that nasty arm stub. Gross. It’s times like these that I hate movie-blogging. Some of us are trying to eat Cheetos over here.

Soul Surfer, the true story about Bethany Hamilton and her survival of a shark attack that cost her her arm, has a trailer. And it looks…wholesome. In fact, nowhere in the 1:14 clip does it reference or even acknowledge the fact that something might go wrong. It’s all surfing and hugs and fireworks. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise considering it’s an inspirational story featuring the likes of Dennis Quaid, Helen Hunt, AnnaSophia Robb, Carrie Underwood, and no less than Hercules himself, Kevin Sorbo. One would think they would at least allude to the fact that this cute blonde girl is going to get her arm bitten off by a shark. It’s not like they can use that as a twist in the film; it was a national news story. The working title of this film was basically The Movie about the Girl Who Got Her Arm Bitten off by a Shark, so it’s unlikely that anyone will be caught off guard when girlfriend loses a limb.

I’m sure as we get closer to the April 15 release date, we’ll be privy to the darker half of the film. In the meantime, enjoy the trailer for Blue Crush Lite! (Coming Soon)
