Even though she’s very, very attractive and by all rights a talented actress, fans of the classic manga and its anime adaptation may be dismayed to learn that Wolf of Wall Street’s Margot Robbie is in early talks to star in the live-action American remake of Ghost in the Shell. In the film, Robbie will play a character based on the original’s Major Motoko Kusanagi, a cybernetically-enhanced leader of a special ops team that are hunting down a dangerous hacker. Much like Jennifer Lawrence is doing right this minute.

Snow White and The Hunstman’s Rupert Sanders, a guy who knows something about leaked photos, will direct which is also likely to upset everyone. (The Wrap)

Get ready to see The Wolf of Wall Street‘s Margot Robbie everywhere. Including in tabloids next to Alexander Skarsgård. Robbie is said to be in talks for David Yates‘s upcoming adaptation of Tarzan.

She’ll play Jane opposite Skarsgård’s Tarzan. Originally, it was reported that Yates had his eye on Jessica Chastain for the role but then Margot Robbie happened and, well, look at her. Her role in Wolf of Wall Street has set her career on fire. She’s showing up on short lists all around Hollywood, appearing on magazine covers, is a favorite on late night talk shows, and has been linked to a few A-List actors. If there’s ever a time that she could be taken seriously swinging from a vine, that time is now. (The Wrap)

‘Terminator 5′ Looking For A Hot, Young Sarah Connor http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/terminator-5-looking-for-a-hot-young-sarah-connor/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/terminator-5-looking-for-a-hot-young-sarah-connor/#comments Mon, 11 Nov 2013 20:05:00 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=257968 Emilia Clarke, Margot Robbie, and Brie Larson are testing.

The plot details for Terminator 5 are being kept under wraps but judging from this casting news, it’s going to be all over the place. First, it looks like they’re casting young for Sarah Connor. Emilia Clarke, Margot Robbie, and Brie Larson are all said to be testing to play the mother of the uprising. The interesting wrinkle is the news that Tom Hardy tops the wishlist to play John Connor. Does this mean that an adult John Connor will travel back in time and meet his pre-pregnancy mom? And isn’t he a robot now or something??

There’s also news that Nicholas Hoult and, for some reason, Taylor Kitsch are being considered for the role of Kyle Reese, the man originally sent back in time to protect/impregnate Sarah Connor. We’ll keep an eye for any plot descriptions but, honestly, this time travel stuff is already hurting our heads. (THR)

Kristen Stewart Replaced In ‘Focus’ By Someone Far Hotter http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kristen-stewart-replaced-in-focus-by-someone-far-hotter/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kristen-stewart-replaced-in-focus-by-someone-far-hotter/#comments Tue, 16 Jul 2013 13:02:12 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=255799 Like way, way more hot.

When 44-year old Will Smith replaced 40-year old Ben Affleck in Focus last April, 23-year old co-star Kristen Stewart left, citing too large of an age gap (Rupert Sanders is 42). This left the Crazy, Stupid, Love. writer/director duo of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa with the task of finding a hotter 23-year old to play opposite Smith, a better 23-year old. I’d say, they’ve done well.

Margot Robbie, who appears in Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, has signed on to play the fledgling female con artist who teams up with Smith’s more seasoned one. She beat out total oldsters Olivia Munn, Michelle Williams, Jessica Biel and Rose Byrne. (Variety)

The Women Of ‘Pan Am’ Can Be Used As Flotation Devices http://www.screenjunkies.com/gallery/the-women-of-pan-am-can-be-used-as-flotation-devices/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/gallery/the-women-of-pan-am-can-be-used-as-flotation-devices/#comments Mon, 26 Sep 2011 19:28:50 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=gallery&p=230017 Even in 60's, the in-flight entertainment was Everybody Loves Raymond.

Pan Am doesn’t do much to support the notion that stewardesses (I’ll be goddamned if I’m ever calling them “flight attendants”) were once sex symbols. Sure, they’re hotter than the effeminate guys in the short sleeve shirts that are so prevalent now, but that’s a pretty low bar to clear. The concept of the show seems to be “pretty women in the 60′s,” so let’s take a look at how the gals fare.

The cast of Pan Am includes Christina Ricci, Margot Robbie (the hottest one by a country mile), French pixie Karine Vanasse, and Kelli Garner as women flying the friendly skies and no doubt negotiating the sexual politics of yesteryear. I don’t see a lot of nudity on the horizon, or ever, so we’ll just have to readjust our sexual fantasies to include tiny bottles of liquor and pillbox hats.

I would be remiss if I didn’t point out the similarities between this show and the high-water mark for the genre, Mad Men. However, with the tame standards set by the networks, it’s unlikely that this show will really give it a run for its money, perhaps serving as more of a Desperate Housewives to Mad Men‘s Sex and the City.

Unless Pan Am was a lesbian airline, I think that this show will probably only be appointment television for those with a stewardess fetish. This group includes myself.

Mike Vogel To Be The Vogeliest Pilot In ‘Pan Am’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mike-vogel-to-be-the-vogeliest-pilot-in-pan-am/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mike-vogel-to-be-the-vogeliest-pilot-in-pan-am/#comments Sat, 16 Jul 2011 21:22:09 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=220582 He didn't play the pilot in the pilot, but he's playing him now.

If you’re one of the hip industry insiders who saw the pilot for the upcoming ABC drama Pan Am, you’ll know that Mike Vogel (Blue Valentine) was nowhere to be found within its sturdy fuselage. But now, Vogel fans everywhere have a reason to watch a show about flight attendants: He’s signed onto the series as “Dean … the captain of the amazing new Pan Am clipper, the Majestic, living every man’s dream, exploring the world and leading the crew.”

In the pilot, Dean was played by Jonah Lotan, but the role has been increased in size in light of Vogel’s involvement. Vogel’s joining Christina Ricci, Kellie Garner and Margot Robbie. And the Vogelites don’t have to wait until this fall to see him in Pan Am, because he’s going to be seen next in The Help. (Deadline)
