First Look at Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in THE HUNGER GAMES

When Jennifer Lawrence was cast as protagonist Katniss Everdeen in Gary Ross’ adaptation of The Hunger Games, there were seriously people who complained that Lawrence was a blonde while in the book Katniss is a brunette. These poor souls never heard of a hair dye so they’ll be pleased to know that this magical new invention has been used to turn Lawrence’s hair the proper color. The new issue of Entertainment Weekly features Lawrence in her full Katniss get-up complete with bow, arrow, and golden pin that’s featured on the cover of the book. Speaking of the book, I just downloaded it to my Kindle and plan to read it in the very near future. If I don’t like it, I’m blaming all of the fans.
Hit the jump to check out the full image of Lawrence as Katniss. The film also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Wes Bentley, and Woody Harrelson. The Hunger Games opens March 23, 2012.
Full Synopsis Revealed for Tim Burton’s DARK SHADOWS: Jonny Lee Miller Joins Cast
by Matt Goldberg Posted: May 18th, 2011 at 12:05 pm
Warner Bros. has announced that principal photography has begun on Tim Burton’s adaptation of the cult classic TV series Dark Shadows. While I’ve always found announcements about the start of production to be slightly baffling (Movie studio is making movies! Will wonders never cease?!), they sometimes contain useful information. In the case of this Dark Shadows announcement, there are two newsworthy items. First up, Jonny Lee Miller (Dexter) has joined the cast which features Johnny Depp (of course), Helena Bonham Carter (again, of course), Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz, Gulliver McGrath, Bella Heathcote, and Jackie Earle Haley.
Secondly, Warner Bros. has also released the full synopsis which not only provides plot details (but nothing spoilery) but also details the relationship between all of the characters. Hit the jump to check out the press release, which includes the synopsis. Dark Shadows is set to open May 11, 2012.
Maggie Gyllenhaal to Star in VOICE FROM THE STONE; 50 Cent Joins ODD THOMAS

As Cannes roles on, more deals are being made, and that means there’s new casting new announce. First up, Variety reports that Maggie Gyllenhaal will star in the supernatural thriller Voice from the Stone. Directed by Eric Howell and based off the Italian novel, Le Voce Della Pietra, the story has Gyllenhaal playing “a nurse drawn to the aid of a young boy who is haunted by malevolent forces within the walls of an old house in the Italian countryside. As she develops a relationship with the father of the boy, she also becomes haunted by the same evil presence and must fight to save herself and the boy.” I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Don’t help haunted children. Gyllenhaal is currently filming the drama Still I Rise with Viola Davis and she’s attached to star in Hysteria opposite Hugh Dancy, and a biopic of musician Bill Monroe.
