The first official image from Robert Rodriguez’ Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World has gone online. The sequel/reboot stars Jessica Alba as former spy Marissa Cortez Wilson. Marissa is called back into action when the villainous Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the planet. The eponymous espionage children are Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook) who get into the spy game as they accompany their step-mom on the adventure. I’m slightly surprised that the new film also features a spy toddler, but I guess if you want to reboot a franchise, you have to get new cast members as young as possible.
Hit the jump to check out the image. The film also stars Antonio Banderas, Alexa Vega, Daryl Sabara, and Danny Trejo. Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World opens in 3D on August 19, 2011.
Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, and Josh Brolin in Talks to Star in GANGSTER SQUAD [Updated]
by Matt Goldberg Posted: April 21st, 2011Last month, we reported that Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling had been offered roles in Ruben Fleischer’s 1940s crime-drama Gangster Squad. Today, TheWrap is reporting that while Penn and Gosling are still in talks to play legendary gangster Mickey Cohen and a cop working to bring him to justice, respectively, Josh Brolin has been offered a role of a cop who would work alongside Gosling in their fight against Cohen. Will Beall wrote the script based on a series of articles by Paul Lieberman.
Of course, it’s not difficult to offer an actor a role in a movie and we don’t know how serious these negotiations are at this point. However, a cast led by Penn, Gosling, and Brolin would be an impressive display of acting talent. [Update: Variety reports all three actors are in active negotiations and that "Penn is nearing a deal to star and with Penn, every other offer was expected to fall into place."]
Red-Band Trailer for 30 MINUTES OR LESS Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari
by Matt Goldberg Posted: April 21st, 2011
The trailer for the upcoming comedy 30 Minutes or Less has gone online. The film stars Jesse Eisenberg as a hapless pizza delivery guy who is kidnapped by two wanna-be criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson) and forced to rob a bank. Directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), the film also stars Aziz Ansari and Michael Peña. Even though this is a red-band trailer, there’s not a lot of profanity. Instead, it gets laughs from funny dialogue and the chemistry between Eisenberg and Ansari. What a mind-blowing concept.
Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer. 30 Minutes or Less opens August 12th.
