Anthony Hopkins to Play 'Bond 23' Villain?

In what may go down as one of the best James Bond casting moves ever, Oscar-winning actor Anthony Hopkins is reportedly up for the villain role in the as-yet-untitled 'Bond 23.'
The report comes from The Sun (insert grain of salt here), which quotes a source as saying, "The only stumbling block seems to be the number of films he is signing up for. There is a chance the character they want him to play could become a regular feature, like Blofeld back in the day." No other information about the character was given.
Whether or not the report is actually true, the idea of Hopkins playing a villain in a Bond movie (or any villain, really) is enough to get us excited. He knows how to make even the biggest of baddies charming (hello, 'Silence of the Lambs') and would be a perfect match for Daniel Craig's tough-guy persona.
In the meantime, what does that mean for Javier Bardem, who was also rumored to play a villain in the movie? We don't know.
Either way, we're just happy to see that 'Bond 23,' which has long been plagued by setbacks due to MGM's financial woes, is continuing to move forward.
The movie, which will be directed by Sam Mendes ('American Beauty'), will also see the return of Judi Dench as Bond's no-nonsense boss, M, and is currently pegged for a Nov. 9, 2012, release.
Sylvester Stallone Won't Direct 'Expendables' Sequel -- Who Should Take His Place?

Last year, 'The Expendables' grossed $274 million worldwide, proving that there was still a place in the world for aging action movie stars and their modern macho brethren. Not bad at all for an independently produced action movie starring a cast not exactly known for lighting the box office aflame.
Director/star Sylvester Stallone has been talking almost nonstop about a sequel, already saying he wants to bring back Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who had cameos in the first film (with Willis most likely being the big baddie our team of mercenaries goes up against in their next adventure). There's been no official word on whether or not Jason Statham, Jet Li and the rest of the cast will return, but it's hard to imagine them turning a sequel down.
However, the L.A. Times reports that although Stallone will star in the eventual 'Expendables 2,' he will be handing directorial duties over to someone else. While Stallone trucks around Hollywood, taking meetings with interested parties, it is our duty as film fans to throw some potential names into the air and see if they stick.
McConaughey to Star in The Dallas Buyers Club

Matthew McConaughy, who can next be seen in The Lincoln Lawyer, will star in the long-gestating The Dallas Buyers Club.
24 Frames reports that Jean-Marc Vallée (The Young Victoria) will direct the drama.
"It's not exactly the movie that studios are throwing money at these days," McConaughey said about the film which is no longer at Universal Pictures.
The Dallas Buyers Club is the true story of Ron Woodroof, a tough Texas electrician who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 and given six months to live. Frustrated with the lack of available medical options and unwilling to accept a death sentence, Woodroof found a lifeline using alternative drugs and created a lucrative smuggling business that made those drugs available to AIDS patients. He died in 1992.

Kristin Kreuk Joins Ronald D. Moore's 17th Precinct
Ronald D. Moore's upcoming Sci-Fi project, 17th Precinct is shaping up. On the heels of the news which recently announced that Moore would be reuniting Battlestar Galactica alumni Tricia Helfer and James Callis, comes today's announcement that Kristin Kreuk (of Smallville fame) will be joining the cast.
Kristin Kreuk will guest-star in the pilot as Susan Longstreet, the wife of Jamie Bamber's crime scene expert. Should the NBC pick up the series, the role has the potential to go recurring.
Set in the fictional town of Excelsior, where magic and supernatural elements rule over science, 17th Precinct revolves around the lawmen at the local cop shop. James Callis is playing a homicide detective and Tricia Helfer is Morgana, the necromancer (the magical equivalent of a coroner).
Matthew McConaughey Set for The Dallas Buyers Club
Matthew McConaughey has signed on to star in The Dallas Buyers Club, with Jean-Marc Vallée attached to direct.
The true story, set in the 1980s about a trafficker in illegal AIDS drugs, has attracted a long list of A-list actors and directors, including Brad Pitt, director Marc Forster, Ryan Gosling and director Craig Gillespie.
Once at Universal, the film is now an indie:
"It's not exactly the movie that studios are throwing money at these days," Matthew McConaughey said.
"It's a great script and a great story," he said. "And I think it can be a great movie."
The movie tells about Ron Woodroof, a heterosexual Dallas electrician who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1986, during some of the darkest days of the disease. Doctors gave him just a few months to live, but he refused to accept their prognosis.
Instead, Ron Woodroof created a smuggling operation for alternative treatments, which were then illegal, and tried to get them into the hands of as many AIDS patients as possible. He wound up living six more years and saved or prolonged the lives of many others.
No production date has been set.
The Dallas Buyers Club is in development and stars Matthew McConaughey. The film is directed by Jean-Marc Vallée.
