Have a few interesting bits of info for my loyal readers today, so get comfy and keep reading!
First off, it turns out Bill Clinton will NOT have a cameo in "The Hangover 2." Yes, he stopped by the shoot for whatever reason, but it was not to film anything for the movie. This comes direct from Ed Helms, and the entire story can be found at The Playlist.
Next up is news regarding Universal's movie and possible television adaptations of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series. The plan as of now is to take the seven novels and condense them into three feature films, with a possible T.V. series following from that. Latest casting news puts Javier Bardem, recently nominated for an Oscar for his role in "Biutiful," as The Gunslinger. Ron Howard is directing the movies for Universal.
We also have some casting news for "Prometheus," Ridley Scott's apparent prequel to the "Alien" saga, but not. Micheal Fassbender has signed on to be an android, probably part of the Bishop Series, that might have something to do with the DNA link to the Alien that Scott has recently been discussing. More rumours involve Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie vying for the secondary female lead, Vickers. Noomi Repace ("Girl With The Dragon Tattoo") has already been signed for the female lead. Additionally, the movie has been set to release on June 8th, 2012, from a previous March date, setting this up for a possible tentpole position in the 20th Century Fox 2012 lineup. More news when it leaks.
Another blow to fans of "The Hobbit" as filming has been delayed due to director Peter Jackson being hospitalized due to acute stomach pains caused by a perforated ulcer. The filming delay will be minor, affecting only the start of filming, not the release date, December 19th, 2012.
That's all the news and rumours for today. Until next time, keep the popcorn warm for me.
