It appears that those Hobbits still can’t stay away from each other. Billy Boyd (Pippin) and Dominc Monahan (Merry) have come up with an idea for a buddy movie where they play two “befuddled” Englishmen traveling through the United States.
They’re still looking for money. Anybody have any?
I’ve seen bits and pieces of this around, but this is the first shot of the whole thing that I’ve run across: The Narnia promo posters. Very LOTResque. Filming hasn’t started yet, but casting reports have Tilda Swinton (not Nicole Kidman) as the White Witch and James McAvoy (Children of Dune) as Mr. Tumnus.
First off, The Grudge, a remake of a Japanese horror film starring Buffy‘s Sarah Michelle Gellar. She really should go back to her original hair color though, because I spent the whole trailer expecting Willow or Giles to show up.
A new King Arthur trailer, with more Keira Knightley for the Karrdes. There’s also the laughable wig-laden epic Alexander.
Garden State, an indie film with tremendous buzz. It does have Natalie Portman, and for us geek-loving ladies, is written, directed, and headlined by Zach Braff of Scrubs.
And we finish up with a few ‘adaptations’ – I, Robot, sure to give any Asimov purists convulsions, and Constantine, which has already given Hellblazer fans spazms with the dubious miscasting of Keanu Reeves in the title role. On the plus side, there’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events, which looks pretty on track despite the presence of Jim Carey.
