Emile Hirsch is the selection to play John Belushi in the upcoming biopic from Steve Conrad. Fun stuff. Hirsch beat out other shortlisted actors such as Joaquin Phoenix and Workaholics’ Adam Devine.

The film will focus on Belushi during the height of his fame because, duh, that’s the most interesting time of people’s lives. It’s not like we want to see them poor in a barn.

Hirsch will likely have to put on weight for the role, which means he probably gets to eat as many milkshakes as he can, giving everyone the excuse, “I have to. It’s for work,” as everyone else sits in their cubicles, eating last night’s kale salad that they won’t be able to expense for their job as a logistics manager because HR just had that seminar on what are and are not acceptable expenses.

BELUSHI!

Emile Hirsch Battles Invisible Aliens In ‘The Darkest Hour’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/emile-hirsch-battles-invisible-aliens-in-the-darkest-hour-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/emile-hirsch-battles-invisible-aliens-in-the-darkest-hour-trailer/#comments Wed, 03 Aug 2011 17:01:19 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=223346 They're like weapons-toting ghosts.

Well, this one’s interesting. It’s the first trailer for Chris Gorak’s The Darkest Hour and it finds a clever way to not make the attacking aliens the same cliche insectoid design that we’ve seen so much of in recent years. It does so by not showing them at all. They are invisible aliens. Kind of like ghosts but with an organized agenda.

And though it’s just Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Rachael Taylor, Max Minghella, and Joel Kinnaman literally running away from nothing, it still looks pretty good. Definitely like the way that the aliens disintegrate their victims by pulling them into their force-fields. We’ve been discussing it here at Screen Junkies HQ and it doesn’t seem like a bad way to go. Way better than drowning.

That Bastard Doug Liman Wants To Send Megan Fox To The ‘Moon’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/that-bastard-doug-liman-wants-to-send-megan-fox-to-the-moon/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/that-bastard-doug-liman-wants-to-send-megan-fox-to-the-moon/#comments Wed, 23 Mar 2011 07:17:49 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=203099 The director is finally dusting off his sci-fi caper film, with the clever name "untitled 'Moon' project," and is talking to Fox, Rosario Dawson, Andrew Garfield and many more.

If director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) has his way, he’ll send Megan Fox, Rosario Dawson, Eva Mendes, Rachel McAdams, Olivia Wilde or Zoe Saldana to Moon. Perhaps to test the effects of zero gravity on my favorite boobs? Just leave a girl or two on Earth for us all to masturbate to, Liman.

The director is finally dusting off his sci-fi caper film, now with the clever name “untitled Moon project,” which has been lingering at Paramount after a jump from Dreamworks in 2007. After rewrites by top screenwriters like Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes), and now that Liman’s All You Need Is Kill is getting killed for lack of momentum at Warner Bros, Liman is ready to round up actors for a good old fashioned space heist.

For the male lead, Limon’s met with Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch and Chris Pine. Of course, Chris Pine has spaceperience (space experience) as Star Trek‘s Captain Kirk, but I’m sure Spider-Man‘s been to space a bunch of times. No biggie. Jake Gyllenhaal used to be attached, but he ain’t no more.

Here’s the plot:

The story centers on a renegade group of former space employees, led by an Eastern European woman, who travel the world, stealing space equipment in an attempt to go back to the moon to acquire an energy source. The last item to steal — or in this case, kidnap — is an ex-NASA employee.

You’ve got to hand it to them – if you’re a criminal, what better place is there to escape to than the moon? It’s very unlikely the police will follow you in a squad rocket. Then again, how do you inconspicuously re-enter the earth’s atmosphere? (Hollywood Reporter)

Child actor powers ACTIVATE!!

The toughest part of this job is having to periodically search for pictures of Dakota Fanning (although it’s perfectly innocent, it just feels dirty when pictures from The Runaways pop up). I do this at both the risk of prosecution and having to sleep on the couch for you, dear reader. So please remember my sacrifice as you read this article.

The elder Fanning is joining The Motel Life opposite Emile Hirsch and her sister’s Somewhere co-star Stephen Dorff. In the film, Hirsch and Dorff star at brothers on the run after a deadly hit and run. There’s no word on who Fanning will play but I’ll take a stab in the dark and say jailbait hitchhiker who divides the pair. Now please excuse me while I clear my recent browsing history. (Variety)

Stephen Dorff has joined Emile Hirsch in The Motel Life. Story centers around two brothers who flee their Reno motel room after a deadly hit-and-run accident. Seems like something Stephen Dorff would do.

Y’know. Like, he likes these kinds of roles. Seems like a character he’d be interested in playing, is what I’m trying to say. I certainly wasn’t insinuating that Dorff would be involved in a hit-and-run accident. And definitely not one directly outside Bar Marmont that occurred between the hours of 2 and 3a.m. this morning.

The first piece of The Motel Life has been identified. That piece would be Emile Hirsch, and what a fine piece he is. Producers Alan and Gabriel Polsky had stalled out on their film adaptation of Willy Vlautin’s novel, but the acquisition of Hirsch as one of the two leads is a promising start.

Perhaps not promising enough to make their ambitious schedule, which contemplates shooting this year, despite having a director, co-stars, or even a screenwriter on board. C’mon, Polsk brothers. Bust a move.

The Motel Life centers around two destitute brothers who flee their digs at a Reno motel after one drunkenly hits and kills a young teenager riding a bike. The two eventually return to Reno where they face judgment for their actions. The story is promising, and the casting of Hirsch appears to be a great fit, after seeing him play a similar hard-up character in Alpha Dog.

The project seems to be a ways from completion, so it’s difficult to presume how this project will play out, but the Polsky brothers have been hanging tight for a while, which suggests that they aren’t willing to turn this over to just anyone. Sorry, Brett Ratner. (Playlist)
