If you by any chance auditioned for My Mother’s Curse, The Gangster Squad, or Kevin Spacey‘s Netflix thing, I have some news to break. Here’s today’s casting round-up.

ADAM SCOTT will appear with Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand in My Mother’s Curse as well as the comedy See Girl Run opposite Robin Tunney where he’ll play a sensitive artist. Adam, I hope you checked with Paul Rudd to make sure he wasn’t interested in these roles first. He has seniority. (THR)

ANTHONY MACKIE will join The Gangster Squad after all. He’ll play Rocky Washington, the first black lieutenant in the LAPD who bumped himself back down to beat cop before being recruited to join Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin‘s elite squad of gangsterbusters. He’s their Winston. (Variety)

ROBIN WRIGHT is in talks to star opposite Kevin Spacey in David Fincher‘s Netflix original series, “House Of Cards.” The political thriller is slated to begin production next spring so she has plenty of time to add and remove “Penn” from her name before the guy who animates the opening credits has to request last call. (THR)

How Ready To Rock Are Al Pacino And Dan Fogelman? http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/how-ready-to-rock-are-al-pacino-and-dan-fogelman/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/how-ready-to-rock-are-al-pacino-and-dan-fogelman/#comments Tue, 07 Jun 2011 03:41:10 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=215052 Pacino is close to playing an aging rock star in writer Fogelman's 'Imagine', and I can imagine him destroying some instruments.

I would like to say “hello” to Al Pacino‘s little friend, assuming that friend is now a double neck guitar.

Pacino is close to playing an aging rock star, which I think could be an amazing fit for the eccentric actor. I can see him getting a big kick out of smashing expensive musical instruments in a crazy rage. He’s currently circling the lead in Imagine, about an old rocker who uncovers a lost letter to him from John Lennon, prompting him to turn his life around. Man, I could use a lost letter from John Lennon right now. I had the worst day.

Imagine comes from the pen of screenwriter Dan Fogelman (Tangled), who’ll make his directing debut with this project. Fogelman is currently on fire, in the NBA Jam sense. He wrote July’s Crazy, Stupid, Love starring Steve Carell, who dropped out of Imagine due to scheduling conflicts. He also wrote the upcoming My Mother’s Curse starring Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen. (LA Times)

Colin Hanks deserves some good luck in this business. And it looks like he’s finally gotten some: He’s landed a part in My Mother’s Curse, starring Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand. Here’s a plot synopsis, which is unfortunately devoid of mummies. Think about it – “curse,” “mother” “mummy.” They could have done something with that:
 

“Hanks will play the husband to the already cast Yvonne Strahovski, Rogen’ high school sweetheart in the pic to whom he once proposed to. Hanks and Strahovski let Rogen and Streisand crash in their house after the son and mother get caught in a blizzard.”

It’s Friday afternoon and I’m tired, so my eyes keeping crossing when I try to read that plot synopsis. I’m sure it’ll be just the kind of charming and likeable part to make Colin Hanks a household name. I’m pulling for you, Colin Hanks. (The Hollywood Reporter)

If the world doesn’t end in 2012, at the very least, humanity will be cursed by Barbra Streisand.

The nails-on-chalkboard-annoying actress/singer/person-who-needs-people teams with Seth Rogen for My Mother’s Curse, a road trip movie that I anticipate will make me long for such masterpieces as College Road Trip. Paramount just gave Curse an official release date of March 30th, 2012. You’ve been warned.

Curse was written by Dan Fogelman (Cars), who wrote the only Pixar movie a lot of people (who need people) dislike. Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, 27 Dresses) directing does not inspire confidence. (Hollywood Reporter)

Barbara Streisand will play Seth Rogen‘s mother in Paramount’s road trip comedy My Mother’s Curse, and just thinking about that car ride gives me such a headache. I’m imagining Streisand as an overbearing Jewish mother, and slacker Rogen will probably retort with quiet wisecracks, while the audience sits and absorbs Streisand at her absolute kvetchiest. And if she sings, what then? Feh. My advice, should you want it, is be sure to locate the emergency exits before the film starts.

In the film, Rogen is an inventor who tries to sell a new product on a road trip with Momma Streisand, and along the way she’s reunited with an old flame. Hopefully, Rogen’s invention is the bubble from “The Prisoner,” which traps Streisand inside it for most of the movie. Then Rogen teams up with Harold & Kumar and we have a proper road trip. One with boobs, weed, more weed and more boobs.

My Mother’s Curse will be directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal – ugh) and written by Dan Fogelman (Fred Claus – double ugh). Yeah, this long shelved project was finally greenlit, and Paramount’s passing the curse onto moviegoers. I could plotz. (Hollywood Reporter)
