We’ve been so caught up in the casting of True Detective season two that we didn’t even notice the casting for Tiny Detectives. It’s fair to say that both Ellen Page and Kate Mara were on the casting short list. BAZINGA!

The Fantastic Four reboot casting department has decided whom they’d like to see in spandex unitards. As rumored, Michael B. Jordan will play the Human Torch. Kate Mara is the lead choice for Invisible Woman Sue Storm, with Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic Reed Richards, and Jamie Bell as the Thing. The deals are not finalized yet but it is reported that both Jordan and Bell are pretty much locked in. Which is pretty rude toward Zac Efron, who would have appreciated at least an invite to the That Awkward Moment reunion.

Although he can continue to hold out hope as it remains unknown who will play Dr. Doom. The role has been somewhat narrowed down as director Josh Trank recently confirmed the classic villain will continue to have a penis. (Deadline)

And our hearts.

The post Treat Williams Is Doing A Thing! appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The thriller Blackbird, starring Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde as cop-killing thieves on the run, has cast the role of a father and daughter who have the misfortune of crossing paths with the criminal couple. The father will be played by none other than “Everwood”‘s very own Treat Williams. For the billions of people not familiar with Mr. Williams’ “Everwood” work, he also established a name for himself as the poor man’s Tom Berenger, having filled in for Berenger in the three straight-to-video-and-TV sequels to The Substitute.  For those unfamiliar with The Substitute or any of its sequels….screw it. Here’s Treat Williams’ IMDB page.

Williams’ onscreen daughter will be played by Kate Mara, who has appeared in Iron Man 2, happythankyoumoreplease, and most notably, 127 Hours along with Williams, though they shared no scenes. She also has a role in the promising comedy Peep World, which will be released this spring.

Blackbird is directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky, who won the 2008 Best Foreign Language Picture Oscar for The Counterfeiters. It will start shooting next month in Canada and is anticipated to get a Sundance release around February of next year.

Is it possible that Treat Williams’ father character could defeat the criminals and become the star of countless Blackbird sequels and spinoffs, establishing Treat as Hollywood’s most bankable actor, as I’ve always felt he is?

Absolutely. (Playlist)

Rosario Dawson and Lynn Collins both want to be a part of Channing’s ten yea high school reunion. The film, aptly titled Ten Year, is basically a modern day remake of The Big Chill, which means they’ll be dancing to “Livin’ La Vida Loca” on MP3 instead of “Heard It Through the Grapevine” on vinyl. Dawson and Collins join an already varied and sexy cast including Kate Mara, Anna Faris, Justin Long, Chris Pine, and Mr. Tatum himself. I’d warn the ladies to watch their backs for Channing attacks if his wife, Jenna Dewan, wasn’t also in the cast. You know what. Go ahead and watch your backs anyway. He could bother you about Ikea directions or something. (THR)

Here it is, folks: the arm cutting movie. You’ve heard about it. It’s true. There’s a lot to this story, but you know it as the arm cutting movie. Personally, I think they should do a double feature of 27 Dresses and 127 Hours. In either order.

More after the jump…

Aron Ralston’s (James Franco) true story comes to life in Danny Boyle style. Even before Aron goes climbing, Boyle cuts together split screen shots of his preparation. He gets shots from inside a water bottle or inside the video camera as the servos spin. Even the adjustment of music volume adds an exciting layer to the editing.

There are awesome shots of Aron biking the canyon. This movie will certainly look great on Blu Ray. As Aron guides novice hikers Kristi (Kate Mara) and Megan (Amber Tamblyn) squeezing through a crevice, it’s more suspenseful than any action movie. The way Boyle has a camera follow Aron is amazing. It’s fast and smooth. He doesn’t even resort to shaky handheld.

Aron is charming with women, playing somewhere between a rugged savior and a scary mountain man. He’s not incompetent at all. Aron practically owns nature. It’s a total fluke that he gets pinned under a rock and he’s more surprised than anyone.

Here’s where the style really kicks in. The rest of the movie is going to be just Aron by himself dealing with the situation, trying everything he can until the inevitable solution, and somehow keeping us entertained for another 70 or so minutes.

First Aron lays out all of his supplies so we know exactly what he’s working with. Everything he tries to do is all visual, conveyed through the camera. He creates some of his own problems too, like when he drops the knife. Spoiler alert, the knife comes back in the end.

The way he finds a way to sleep is brilliant. That didn’t even occur to me. My mind was on the bathroom issues, which he addresses also. There are more issues to Aron’s situation than would immediately come to mind, so there’s plenty of excitement for the whole movie.

The film explores Aron’s dreams, which would seem like a cheat in some stories, but not here. I don’t think there was any shortage of real world drama to portray, but the way 127 Hours represents his dreams gives us a clear visual look into Aron’s mind. There are some beautiful, surreal visual effects.

It also avoids the inner monologue trap. When Aron finally devolves into a self dialogue, Boyle portrays three distinct personalities with a unique camera angle and footage style for each one.

Then it happens. There’s one particular detail that makes it extra squirmy, but it’s just realistic. It had to be done (in real life) and it has to be shown, otherwise the whole movie is B.S. You don’t get the triumph of human survival without the brutal reality of Aron’s sacrifice. Don’t be afraid to look. It’s good for you.

“This suuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks!”

Fox Searchlight has dropped the new trailer for Danny Boyle‘s 127 hours. The film stars James Franco as Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who didn’t tell anyone he was going out into the wilderness and then got his arm caught inbetween rocks for 127 hours before cutting it off. As Aron says in the trailer, “Oops.”

The new trailer shows how the story jumps around from Aron documenting his experience and memories into his camcorder and flashbacks that illustrate those memories. The visuals are very Danny Boyle. I just hope they’re enough to sustain a movie about a guy trapped in a crevice.

Check out the trailer after the jump…
