Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to play a hit man who is probably excessively tanned in Blood On Snow, the latest from Safe House director Daniel Espinosa. Based on the upcoming novel from Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbo, the story centers around an assassin (who should really lay off the bronzer at awards shows) that fails on a job and goes on the run with the intended target, who also happens to be his boss’s wife. Dude is so fired. (Deadline)

UPDATED: Bruce Willis Heads To Vegas And Then To ‘Die Hard 5′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/bruce-willis-heads-to-vegas-and-then-to-die-hard-5/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/bruce-willis-heads-to-vegas-and-then-to-die-hard-5/#comments Fri, 11 Feb 2011 22:18:59 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=26365 We'll see Bruce Willis play a bookie in Stephen Frears' Lay The Favorite, Take The Dog before we see him play a geriatric John McClane.

UPDATE: Vulture is now reporting “the odds are good that Justin Timberlake will play the part of Rosie, a Long Island bookmaker who runs a massive off-shore sports book under which Raymer (to be played by Rebecca Hall) apprenticed. We also hear the smart money is on Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones signing on to play Tulip, Willis’s wife.” This could be more fun in Vegas than the cast of Ocean’s 12 had filming Ocean’s 12.

In Bruce Willis, Stephen Frears has found his Dink Heimowitz. Willis is in negotiations to join Lay The Favorite, Take The Dog. Based on Beth Raymer’s best-seller, Lay The Favorite: A Memoir Of Gambling, the film is about a cocktail waitress who becomes one of Vegas’s top bookies.

Willis’ Heimowitz character is a former New York bookmaker who coaches Rebecca Hall‘s Raymer. It’s unlikely he will use a car to kill a helicopter in this film. However, he may have  that opportunity soon enough…

While 20th Century Fox continues to look for a Die Hard 5 script that doesn’t suck, Willis has been interviewing directors to helm the project. At the top of his list is Daniel Espinosa of Snabba Cash and the upcoming Safe House. At this rate, we may see John McClane take on terrorists before his 60th birthday. (Vulture)

Fares Fares Will Have His Name In Lights http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fares-fares-will-have-his-name-in-lights/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fares-fares-will-have-his-name-in-lights/#comments Thu, 10 Feb 2011 20:39:06 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=26198 Man, how many bad guys are in Safe House? And how do they all know the location of this Safe House?

Man, do all the bad guys know about this Safe House? Just the other day, the T-1000 and some other movie bad guy types signed on to threaten Denzel Washington‘s personal safety. Today, Snabba Cash actor and hilarious name-haver Fares Fares is re-teaming with director Daniel Espinosa for his English-language debut.

Fares will play an assassin hired to take out  Washington and any Ryan Reynoldses that try to get in his way. Fares had better hope he has the cunning required to pull off the mission. The ragtag team of Reynolds and Washington may not look like much, but when they can put their differences aside, that young agent and that experienced old timer might just have what it takes to see the end credits. (Latino Review)

T-1000 And Friends Invade Denzel Washington’s ‘Safe House’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/t-1000-and-friends-invade-denzel-washingtons-safe-house/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/t-1000-and-friends-invade-denzel-washingtons-safe-house/#comments Wed, 09 Feb 2011 07:42:37 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=25762 There ain't no party like a 'Safe House' party, and look who's invited to the film: Robert Patrick, Brendan Gleeson, Liam Cunningham and Sam Shepard.

There ain’t no party like a Safe House party, and when you throw a Safe House party, you need a whole bunch of somewhat well-known actors. That’s why Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day), Brendan Gleeson (the Harry Potter movies), Liam Cunningham (Clash of the Titans) and Sam Shepard (Black Hawk Down) are joining the cast of the new Denzel Washington thriller Safe House. The film is directed by Daniel Espinosa, who directed The Fighter, but not that The Fighter – a different The Fighter.

In the movie, Ryan Reynolds plays a CIA agent who needs to protect criminal Denzel Washington from assassins, after Reynold’s safe house is compromised. Will Ryan Reynolds‘ character secretly turn out to be a superhero, like all the other roles he’s been playing lately? We can only hope the Green Lantern shows up, so Hal Jordan and Alastor Moody can team up to fight T-1000. If that’s what’s gonna happen, I’ll be there opening night. (TheWrap)
