Cameron Diaz to Star in WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING
by Adam Chitwood Posted: May 5th, 2011
Since we’re apparently making movies out of baby books now, Cameron Diaz is close to being set to star in What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee) is directing from a script by Heather Hach (2003’s Freaky Friday) and Shauna Cross (Whip It!). Deadline reports that while nothing’s official yet, Diaz is expected to sign on to the film shortly. The approach to the flick is to tell a Love Actually-esque story, which is officially the only way to make self-help-based-romantic-comedies (yeah, that’s a thing now). The story will follow five expectant couples through the ups and downs of pregnancy.

by Jason Barr Posted: May 5th, 2011
With the film’s new trailer set to debut in front of Thor this weekend, Relativity has sent over a new image of a spear-wielding Henry Cavill in Tarsem Singh’s Immortals. Briefly, Immortals tells the story of a stonemason named Theseus (Cavill) who vows to stop the ruthless King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) from obtaining the long lost Bow of Epirus. In addition to Cavill and Rourke, Immortals also stars Isabel Lucas, John Hurt, Freida Pinto, Kellan Lutz, Luke Evans, and Stephen Dorff. The film hits theaters later this year on November 11th.

Vince Vaughn Joins Rebecca Hall, Bruce Willis, and Catherine Zeta-Jones in LAY THE FAVORITE
by Brendan Bettinger Posted: May 5th, 2011
Vince Vaughn will join Rebecca Hall, Bruce Willis, and Catherine Zeta-Jones in the gambling drama Lay the Favorite. The film is based on the memoir of Beth Raymer, played by Hall in the biopic. Once a Las Vegas cocktail waitress, Raymer became an elite professional gambler: “After falling in love, Raymer soon begins to re-evaluate her life and the profession she has chosen.” Deadline reports Vaughn will play Rosie, a Long Island bookie who employed Raymer. Willis is Dink Heimowitz, Raymer’s mentor who teaches her the finer points of betting on sports. Zeta-Jones will play Dink’s wife.
Stephen Frears will direct from a script by D.V. De Vincentis. I’m always interested in the latest from Frears, and I like the collection of eclectic gathering around Lay the Favorite. Read a synopsis of Raymer’s memoir after the jump.
