Earlier this year, news broke that Bradley Cooper would play the lead in Relativity Media’s reboot of The Crow.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, this is no longer the case, as Cooper has elected to pass on the project, due to scheduling conflicts with David O. Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook.  Two other names are now being rumored for the role: Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum. Ironically, Wahlberg had previously passed on an opportunity to star in the film in order to work with David O. Russell on Playbook.  Wahlberg then left the project due to scheduling conflicts of his…

If you’ve played No More Heroes or Shadows of the Damned, I’m sure you’ll agree that developer Suda51 has a very… distinctive style, and his upcoming project, which features a barely-legal blonde dismembering zombies in her cheerleading uniform, seems to fit in nicely with his previous work.  According to Game Informer: The game centers on Juliet Starling, an 18-year-old zombie-hunting cheerleader. She’s on a mission to kill zombies, armed with her trusty chainsaw and disembodied head sidekick. The game is being developed by Suda51, mastermind of games including Shadows of the Damned and No More Heroes, with help from writer/director…

As much as I love Timothy Olyphant, I have to admit that for me, Walton Goggins is THE reason to watch Justified.  His portrayal of complex, conflicted criminal Boyd Crowder has been fascinating over the past two seasons, and I often find myself more interested in Boyd’s story than that of main character Raylan Givens.  It looks like Goggins is staying busy, as Variety is reporting he has just been cast in G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation. We reported previously that Bruce Willis was also in talks for the film, and the acquisition of Goggins adds another high-profile star to the…

Director Jake Scott is putting together a biopic of the late Jeff Buckley, and Deadline has confirmed that Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark star Reeve Carney will be playing the lead, with an expected November start date.  Buckley’s mother, Mary Guibert, will serve as executive producer on the project. While two other Buckley-themed projects are actively being developed, this is the only film to have exclusive rights to all of the late singer’s music, and Carney will perform all of his own singing in the film, which should serve as no trouble for the Broadway star.  Scott says that Carney…

Brad Pitt has long been rumored to be circling The Gray Man, an adaptation of Mark Greaney’s thriller that James Gray will direct.  Now Deadline indicates that the deal is being closed up, with Pitt “locked down” to being production early next year. New Regency is producing the film, about “a former CIA operative-turned-ultimate assassin” that is forced to “fight his way across Europe and past special forces teams from around the world in order to save the life of his handler and the handler’s family.”

Young Adult, the latest collaboration between screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman, will be released in December.  The film stars Charlize Theron as a successful writer of young-adult fiction who return to her small Minnesota hometown and attempts to reconnect with her happily-married high school boyfriend (Patrick Wilson).  The studio has just released the first official look at Charlize Theron in character (click the image for a full-size version).

Todd Haynes, executive producer and director on HBO’s critically-acclaimed Mildred Pierce, is developing a new project with the network.  According to Deadline, Haynes is in talks to direct Dope, adapted from the novel by Sara Gran, and Julianna Moore has expressed interest in the project, which follows a former heroin addict turned private eye in 1950s New York.  Here’s a description of the novel: Josephine Flannigan has been many things in her 35 years on this moral coil—and most of them she did in order to get the dope that her veins craved—but one thing she’s never been is a…
