The major failing of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was that it didn’t have zombies. Or so goes the thinking in Hollywood.

After a few false starts that saw actresses like Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Mia Wasikowska and Anne Hathaway close to signing on and directors like David O. Russell, Mike White, and Craig Gillespie in the mix, the regency-horror-comedy mashup from Seth Grahame-Smith is lurching forward with a new director and leading lady.

Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones star and the inspiration for the song “Sussudio” (unconfirmed), Lily Collins will fight off the undead and the affections of Mr. Darcy in the adaptation. Burr Steers (17 Again, Charlie St. Cloud) will direct. With Steers’ involvement one has to wonder if Zac Efron will also join. Might be fun to see him get eaten. (THR)

The lead has been cast in the remake of Sam Raimi‘s The Evil Dead and it’s the last person you’d expect. Mirror, Mirror and Abduction star Lily Collins is in talks for the role of Mia, who is essentially the new Ash. Mia is a troubled young woman who is brought to the doomed cabin by her brother and his friends for an intervention. Imagine going through that embarrassment but also have a forest of demonic rape trees try to get all handsy with you. Or branchy. Or whatever.

The project is being produced by Raimi with Panic Attack’s Fede Alvarez directing from the screenplay by he and Rodo Sayagues. Diablo Cody came in to do punch up work on the script. These demons are going to have the best one-liners. (Bloody Disgusting)

I think it’s safe to say that the dueling Snow White projects are no longer equally matched. Last week we all rocked out to the action-heavy preview of Snow White and the Huntsman, and today we have our first look at Tarsem Singh’s Mirror, Mirror. Ouch. Whereas one went for pulse-pounding action and CGI sorcery, the other aimed for goddamn ridiculous.

Far too much of the trailer focuses on Julia Roberts and her hacky Catskills kvetching routine. She comes off more like Woody Allen than she does an evil monarch. Not that the dwarfs are any better. Actual exchange of dialogue upon meeting Snow White: “Snow White? Snow Who? Snow Way!”

I just don’t get it. Julia Roberts. Corny jokes. Fabulous outfits. Nathan Lane. Are they intending on bringing this to Broadway?

The post Lily Collins And 9 Other Hot Rock Star Daughters Who Went On To Act appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
We here at Screen Junkies will undoubtedly be dragged along to screenings of Abduction this weekend by the teen girls we “volunteer” with. Luckily, Lily Collins co-stars opposite Taylor Lautner, so the guys will have something to look at as well. Lily began her acting career with roles in 90210, The Blind Side, and Priest, but is also known as the youngest daughter of “rock star” Phil Collins.

That comes as a bit of a surprise given the lack of family resemblance, but acting is actually a popular career path for the hot daughters of rock royalty. This fact is reinforced by the beautiful ladies below.

Liv Tyler

Pops: Steven Tyler of Aerosmith

Let’s get the most famous hot rock star daughter out of the way. Liv Tyler spent the first nine years of her life under the belief that she was the daughter of “Hello It’s Me” singer Todd Rundgren. However when she noticed her resemblance to one of Steven Tyler’s hot daughters, the cat was let out of the bag. It wasn’t long before she got to work being really hot professionally in Aerosmith videos, which led to roles in films like Armageddon, the LoTR Trilogy, Jersey Girl, and One Night At McCool’s.

Cosma Shiva Hagen

Moms: Nina Hagen of The Nina Hagen Band

Cosma Shiva received her odd name when her punk rock mom thought she saw a UFO while pregnant. Hagen has shown off her hotness in several German films, but hasn’t expanded her career very much in America. Unless you count her appearance in Speed Racer, which you probably don’t.

Chelsea Tallarico

Pops: Steven Tyler of Aerosmith

You might argue that Chelsea Tallarico doesn’t count as an actress given that her only IMDb credit is that of Bystander #1 on an episode of Lizzie McGuire. But let me ask you this; did you actually see her performance in the “Xtreme Xmas” episode of Lizzie McGuire? It was some damn fine bystanding. You really believed she was standing there. Also, she’s gorgeous. Let’s thank God everyday for Steven Tyler’s recessive genes.

Lily Collins runs around with Taylor Lautner in Abduction. Where are they running? Nobody knows. Well, people who have seen the movie do, but we don’t want to spoil it for you. Collins, the daughter of prolific musician Phil Collins, has recently begun making a name for herself as an actress. Her first film appearance was a role in The Blind Side in 2009, and next year she’ll play the titular character in Th Brothers Grimm: Snow White.

The post The First Look At Tarsem’s Snow White Might Cause Retinal Damage appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Entertainment Weekly got their hands on the first look of the non-huntsman-related Snow White, played by Lily Collins. Because you’re probably as confused at I am, and I do this for a living, let’s go through it. This Snow White film is currently untitled and will be helmed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall). It stars Julia Robert as the Evil Queen, who we have not had the pleasure of seeing in character yet. Sean Bean has been recently cast as her father and Armie Hamer as the Prince, giving that other Snow White film a run for its money in the casting department.

Collins’ Snow White looks…vibrant. Vivid? Like she’s designed to be held under a black light. Gone is the lush imagery we’ve seen in recent films like Red Riding Hood. This honestly looks a little headache-inducing. I’m hoping the entire production design doesn’t take on this sensibility, but when they lead with this retina-scorching image, you have to wonder.

I hope the 3D glasses are heavily tinted.

The post ‘Snow White & The Huntsman’ Pulls Ahead Of Other ‘Snow White’ In Release Date Race appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Hollywood executives and internet commenters have something in common: The urge to shout “first!” So it is with the filmmakers at Universal behind Snow White and the Huntsman, who have moved their movie’s release date up six months, putting it a few weeks before the now-untitled Snow White movie that used to be called Brothers Grimm: Snow White, coming out June 29th, 2012.

In case you haven’t committed the myriad Snow White movies to memory, Snow White and the Huntsman is the one with Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth as the titular characters, and Charlize Theron as the evil queen. The other movie, from Relativity Media, stars Julia Roberts, Lily Collins, and Armie Hammer. It’s not known if Relativity plans to respond by moving ITS movie up to before Snow White and the Huntsman, but I’m hoping that this race continues to the point where they attempt to beam the movies back in time. I guess we’d know now if they did that, though. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Here’s some news that will make the not-Nathan Lane Nathan Lane wish that he were Nathan Lane. Ahem. Nathan Lane is in talks to join Tarsem Singh‘s adaptation of Brothers Grimm: Snow White.

The film is already slated to star Armie Hammer, Julia Roberts, and Lily Collins. In the type of role that normally goes to Stanley Tucci, Lane will play the main servant to Roberts’ Evil Queen.  He’s reported to be loyal to her out of fear, so expect a lot of humble hunching over and skittering backwards out of the room. That’s textbook royal servant behavior. That and laying across puddles so the Monarch needn’t dampen their precious feet. (THR)

If you aren’t crying with joy and squealing while watching this trailer for Taylor Lautner‘s Abduction, they will kick you out of Team Jacob. I assume for most Screen Junkies readers, that would be heartbreaking.

Twilight‘s Lautner stars in Abduction, directed by John Singleton, about high school kid who finds out that his parents aren’t really his parents, and then explosions. Suddenly, Lautner is getting tracked down by secret agents and other bad guys who cannot be trusted. But who can be trusted, you guys? All I know is, I hope I never discover that my parents are fakes, so I won’t have to jump off buildings and dodge gunfire. I assume that’s standard protocol.

I do like the company Lautner’s keeping these days, with hot Lily Collins by his side and forever classy Sigourney Weaver to watch his back. Maybe his parents are aliens? Those bitches.

So Odd Thomas struck out with Lily Collins (The Blind Side). Collins was the frontrunner to play Stormy Llewellyn in the Dean Koontz adaptation, but decided she wanted to play one of the 200 Snow Whites in one of the 200 Snow White movies coming out – specifically, Th Brothers Grimm: Snow White for Relativity Media.

Who will date the dead people-seeing, short-order cook played by Anton Yelchin now? Rumors say it’ll be Addison Timlin from “Californication,” who would beat out the likes of Emma RobertsPortia Doubleday, and Kat Dennings. See, flashing your boobs on Showtime can only lead to great things.

Stephen Sommers is directing his own script. (Variety)

The post WonderCon: Lily Collins Talks ‘Priest’ And ‘Snow White’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
I really lucked out with this one. I asked for a 1:1 with Lily Collins for Priest just because I thought the pretty girl from the action movie would be cool. The day before the interview, she gets the part of Snow White in Tarsem Singh’s next movie.

Lucy (Collins) is the target of Priest’s (Paul Bettany) quest in the movie. She’s kidnapped and he goes back on duty to find her. In the footage screened for WonderCon, she hangs from a speeding train.

Q: What an exciting day you must’ve had yesterday, seeing the Priest footage and landing the Snow White role.

Lily Collins: Yeah, first time in 3D, saw it yesterday, that was shocking. Put those glasses on and I thought that was incredible. I didn’t know what the 3D was going to turn into and it was just so amazing and exciting. Yes, and then found out that I was cast as Snow White so it’s quite the big day.

Q: And it was April 1st, but it’s all true, right?

LC: I know, actually that’s the first thing I said when my team called me and told me. I said, “If this is an April Fools joke, I don’t know what I’ll start to do.” Because I was so excited. I had literally read the day before and met the director the day before and then was cast yesterday, so it was less that 24 hours.

Q: What cool stuff do you get to do in Priest?

LC: I have knife fights, I set people on fire, I get thrown off a train and I’m flying through the air, grabbing ont Paul, being whipped by the air. I’m seduced, locked in a cage, starved. I’m kidnapped. I was dirty the entire time and it was really fun.

Q: That’s a lot. Is this a six hour movie?

LC: No, I know, exactly. The cool thing about it is it cuts so quickly and it’s so fast paced, you have a second to breathe but it’s constant action. Yet the story is told in a way that you still fully understand and you can immerse yourself in it. Scott’s vision with the visual effects of it all and creating this alternate post-apocalyptic world is so fantastic that when you see it in 3D you really do feel like you’re there and part of the story.

Q: Who seduces you? Is that vampire Stockholm syndrome?

LC: Karl Urban plays a human vampire which is a new breed of vampire because the other ones are more horrific creatures that were all CG and created by Scott. He wants to turn me and in order to do so it’s kind of that seducing character, tries to seduce me through food and tries to lure me to the other side.

Q: The train sequence looks amazing. How long were you working on that?

LC: I’m on the train pretty much the entire film. When I’m kidnapped I’m put onto the train.

Q: I guess when the motorcycles start chasing the train is what we saw.

LC: Oh, that, yes. That took weeks because the exterior shots and the interior shots were completely different places. The motorcycle training, obviously they had tons of stunts, tons of training, days where you had a certain amount of light time and then all of a sudden the sun was going down so you had to push to the next day, but it was a crazy process and it was all amazing. Crazy journey.

Q: What is the secret to a good movie scream?

LC: I don’t know. They said, “Scream” and that’s what came out. It was my first day of filming. They put me down in this wet dungeon and they just said, “All right, now you’re reacting to stuff going on upstairs.” I just was listening to sounds and they said, “And scream.” That’s what came out. The next day my voice was gone but I only had to do it twice.

Q: How do you plan to make Snow White a modern girl?

LC: I think with Tarsem his vision is so incredible and his imagery from The Fall and then Immortals coming out. We’re not modernizing it. It’s still going to be period but I think it’s more of the action comedy, maybe like The Princess Bride, Enchanted, trying to relate to all generations while maintaining the core values of the story, making people laugh at the same time. It’s not so much making it edgy or making it anything different because I think the fairy tale speaks for itself. It’s just taking the Tarsem twist on it.

Q: I meant modern girl in spirit, for today’s audiences.

LC: Oh, right. I think bringing her spirit and her spunk to life, she changes in this story. She’s very feminine but she also then goes to be with the dwarves and then she has to come back and fight, so she’s got kind of two personalities. She’s the girly princess but at the same time, she’s got this kick butt side. I think she shows a lot of different qualities that young girls have today with the confidence and the excitement. It’ll be really fun. It’s all new for me.

Q: There are other Snow Whites being made too, but yours is going to be the best, right?

LC: [Laughs] Kristen Stewart is the other Snow White and I really admire her as an actress. She’s so fun and so sweet and we’re both very different. We’ve both very, very different and I think we’re going to have two totally different takes on it. So it’ll be interesting to see what happens but I’m very excited to be involved with mine with Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer and Tarsem. I’m still completely amazed.

Casting news for Th Brothers Grimm: Snow White, which is the Snow White movie with Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer, has been conspicuously lacking information about who would actually play the titular character of Snow White. It turns out we should have looked at the “Phil Collins connection” that runs through so many of the mysteries in today’s world. His daughter, Lily Collins, is the lucky girl who now gets to be the subject of countless clever puns involving the phrase “lily white.” This isn’t her first journey into the world of acting though – she was previously Sandra Bullock‘s daughter in The Blind Side.

Collins is also appearing in Priest and John Singleton‘s Abduction. It’s a shame there’s no role for Phil, unless … are there going to be dwarfs in this version? (via Deadline)

Dean Koontz fans, are you ready to get excited? Or rather, are you ready to casually acknowledge that another major role in the film adaptation of Odd Thomas has almost been filled? Nod your head nonchalantly and we’ll begin.

The role of Stormy Llewellyn, which sounds like a dragon porn star‘s name, has been offered to Lily Collins (The Blind Side). She beat out a bunch of other young ladies, like Emma Roberts, Portia Doubleday, and Kat Dennings, for the opportunity to play Anton Yelchin‘s girlfriend. That’s something worth Yelchin about. We’ll see if she accepts the part.

Directed by Stephen Sommers, the plot concerns California desert townie Thomas, “a short-order cook with clairvoyant abilities who encounters a mysterious man with a link to dark, threatening forces.” Sounds like Odd lives up to his name. Production will start May 2, provided ghosts don’t screw up the filming. As long as they stay in their special trailer, like they’re supposed to, everything will be fine. (Variety)

Congratulations to Eleanor Tomlinson. I’m not sure who she is, apart from the fact that she had small parts in Alice In Wonderland and The Illusionist. Now she’ll become a name you hear in households, as she’s been chosen to star in director Bryan Singer‘s big-budget Jack The Giant Killer, based on the fairy tale “Jack and the Beanstalk.” Way to climb the Hollywood fame beanstalk, Eleanor.

Tomlinson beat out a number of hopefuls, including Lily Collins (The Blind Side), Adelaide Kane (Power Rangers RPM – more like FTW) and Juno Temple (Greenberg). Having sent those other ladies home with not so much as a sack of beans, Tomlinson gets to star alongside Stanley Tucci, Ewan McGregor and Nicolas Hoult (X-Men: First Class). She’ll play Isabella the Princess, so curtsy next time you see her.

This giant of a movie is looking to drop down into theaters sometime in 2012. (The 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)

Yep, feels about right.

Watch out, young Hollywood dudes and dudettes. Bryan Singer is coming for you. The director is currently in the process of casting his next film, Jack The Giant Killer, and he’s got a few sprightly up-and-comers in his sights. The movie “centers around a war between giants and humans, set off by the kidnapping of a princess, and the young farmer who journeys to the giant kingdom on a rescue mission.” Christopher McQuarrie, of The Usual Suspects awesomeness, wrote the script.

Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass) and Nicholas Hoult (the kid from About a Boy who’s all grown up now) are the lead contenders to wear the farmer overalls. As for the princess, Singer is eying some girls you probably haven’t heard much about. Juno Temple, Adelaide Kane and Lily Collins should all commence polishing their tiaras. But don’t block the boys as they’re putting on their overalls. Yeah, one strap at a time gentleman. Slowly now. (ThePlaylist)
