After offering the part to and getting shot down by Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Mia Waskiowska, Emma Stone, and Anne Hathaway (funny that there aren’t any black actresses on that list), the producers of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies have realized that Blake Lively was really their first choice all along, and they’re totally not just giving it to the biggest available name right now. It’s rumored she’s been offered the part but has yet to respond.

Lively has been flirting with the A-list for the past year or so, having gone “ugly” in The Town, cleverly disseminated nude pictures of herself to the masses (What the hell. It’s Friday. Here’s a link to the smoking-hot pics.), and jumped on board Oliver Stone‘s The Savages in her highest-profile role to date. Will this nascent project be the one that catapults her to superstardom? It’s hard to tell as this project has seemed to lose steam over the past year or so, but they could do a lot worse than Blake Lively. Ke$ha, for instance.

Lively would play Elizabeth, the star of the film, a Victorian young lady who enjoys impalin the walking dead as much as she does playing coy to Mr. Darcy.

While I don’t think Lively is a bad choice here, the selection doesn’t seem terribly inspired, as they are probably just going for the biggest name they can get. However, if attaching her gets production rolling on this film, good. Great. Splendid. She’s the best actress for the job, etc.

Now please start making the film.

Josh Schwartz Branches Out With Film About Teenagers http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/josh-schwartz-branches-out-with-film-about-teenagers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/josh-schwartz-branches-out-with-film-about-teenagers/#comments Wed, 19 Jan 2011 22:12:10 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=18930 Josh Schwartz continues to deny the existence of people over 20 with the teen comedy Fun Size.

Josh Schwartz has made a good living refusing to do any work that acknowledges the existence of any people over the age of twenty. It looks like the Gossip Girl/The O.C. creator is taking that ethos with him in his big screen debut, a teen comedy entitled Fun Size. Fun Size follows a girl around as she takes her little brother out to go trick-or-treating, then loses him, prompting zany hijinks that may or may not include toilet paper and garden hoses.

Schwartz will direct and serve as producer under his Fake Empire banner with partner Stephanie Savage. This project comes on the heels of Fake Empire’s announcement that they had secured the rights to Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick, which is maybe, just maybe, another teen movie as well. Actually, it’s about a family that takes in an exchange student who takes in an exchange student who turns out to be an assassin. I wonder if she’ll fall in love with the host family’s awkward but goodhearted son!

Mr. Schwartz definitely has a type, though it seems, on the little information we have about both projects, that his theater fare is more broad and accessible than his TV shows about machiavellia high school juniors trying to “destroy” Blake Lively with needlessly complex plots. (Variety)

Here’s some casting news you can use. Or don’t use it. Up to you, man!

Michelle Pfeiffer, who’ll always be remem-purrrrrrred for her role as Lamia in 2007′s Stardust, was cast in the film Welcome To People. She’ll join Chris Pine, Olivia Wilde and Elizabeth Banks in a movie about a man (Pine) whose father dies. When he returns home, he uncovers a family secret. And the secret is… wait, I don’t know. The film starts shooting next week, so we’ve got a ways to wait.

Meanwhile, I’ve never seen a full episode of “Gossip Girl,” but there’s a British dude on it named Ed Westwick. So, yeah, that guy’s got a major supporting role in a cool sounding bio pic called J. Edgar, about the life of power-grabbing, cross-dressing FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Hoover, and Westwick plays the straight-laced FBI agent who ends up writing his biography. DiCaprio gave an awesome performance in Catch Me If You Can, so you don’t need to tap our phones to know we’re intrigued by this project. (Deadline)

You might recognize Dreama Walker from “Gossip Girl,” which would mean you watch “Gossip Girl.” It’s all good though, we understand. Okay, no we don’t. But if you want to see more of Dreama without constantly worrying that someone’s going to walk in on you listening to Blake Lively rant about purses or whatever, you should check out “The Good Wife,” Dreama’s latest television vehicle. Because legal drama makes for some manly television.

‘Gossip Girl’ Actress Leighton Meester http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/gossip-girl-actress-leighton-meester/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/gossip-girl-actress-leighton-meester/#comments Mon, 29 Mar 2010 17:58:00 +0000 Defy Media Leighton Meester plays a bad teen on TV's Gossip Girl, but in real life she's just your average prudish twenty-something. At least that's what all the quotes from her say. This seems perfectly believable if you forget that she has a sex tape. A word from Leighton: "When you move from Florida to New York, you're in for a big shock." I know, right?! You can get a pastrami sandwich any time of the night! But other than that they're almost exactly the same. See more of how innocent Leighton is after the jump.

She comes from a showbiz family. She is the youngest of five children, all of whom are actors. They're like the Baldwins, but slimmer and less gravely-voiced.  A word from Blake: "I don't want to go to a club and not wear panties." If you want to jump to the head of the line you'll make the sacrifice. And SJ writer Wookie Johnson will thank you for it.  More pics of Wookie's unhealthy obsession after the jump.
