First Look At Emma Watson On The Perks Of Being A Wallflower Setpublished: 2011-06-08 15:54:26 Author: Josh Tyler
Emma Watson is the only one of the Harry Potter kids who hasn’t really done much outside of the Potter movies. With the last film in the can and Emma suddenly more interested in acting than ever, that’s about to change. She’s already filmed a part in the upcoming My Week with Marilyn and she’s currently at work on the set of The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
The movie’s based on a popular young adult novel and seems like perfect material for Watson, whom I once boldly declared as the only one of the Harry Potter kids with any real talent. I’m standing by that. Emma, don’t make me look stupid.
She stars in the film opposite Logan Lerman and thanks to Caught On Set the first series of images from the Perks of Being a Wallflower set have appeared on the internet. Here’s your first look at Emma in her Wallflower best:
The Stephen Chbosky authored book is about a mixed-up teenage kid played by Lerman, who falls in with a crowd of outcasts, including Emma Watson’s character Samantha. Chbosky actually wrote the script and he’s directing the movie, which might explain why Emma’s keeping a copy of the book close on set. http://www.cinemablend.com/new/First-Look-At-Emma-Watson-On-The-Perks-Of-Being-A-Wallflower-Set-25122.html
Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger Gallops To A December 2012 Release Datepublished: 2011-06-08 14:14:14 Author: Sean O'Connell
Heigh Ho Silver, away! Ride like the wind to Dec., 21 2012, which is when Walt Disney intends to open Jerry Bruckheimer’s big-budget reboot of The Lone Ranger.
Armie Hammer, last seen playing twins in David Fincher’s The Social Network, saddles up alongside Johnny Depp’s Tonto for director Gore Verbinski’s production, which, according to the Hollywood Reporter, takes place in 1869 and focuses on a Texas Ranger who fights Western criminals with the aid of his trusty Indian sidekick. Verbinski, of course, directed the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films with Depp in tow. Earlier this year, the duo teamed for the animated Rango, a box-office smash that has taken in $241 million worldwide to date.
But Verbinski’s Lone Ranger will face some stiff competition during that holiday season. Peter Jackson’s first installment of a two-part Hobbit adaptation hits theaters a week prior on Dec. 14. Meanwhile, Ang Lee’s Life of Pi adaptation recently moved to Dec. 21 to avoid Jackson’s epic, but now will face Ranger, Relativity’s Hunter-Killer and an as-yet-untitled Judd Apatow comedy. The Ranger may need a lot more than his usual sidekick and six-shooter to beat out all that competition. http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Gore-Verbinski-s-The-Lone-Ranger-Gallops-To-A-December-2012-Release-Date-25117.html
Anne Hathaway Gets A Little Too Into Her Catwoman Character, Clocks A Dark Knight Rises Stuntmanpublished: 2011-06-08 13:14:49 Author: Katey Rich
Injuries are probably par for the course for stuntmen and women, especially those who specialize in hand to hand combat. But there's got to be some kind of special bragging right for being injured by Catwoman. According to Fox News Anne Hathaway got a little too into her character of Selina Kyle on the set of The Dark Knight Rises and ended up giving a stuntman a "massive black eye" after accidentally shoving the butt of a gun into his eye socket.
Hathaway, ever gracious and good at PR, was reportedly "mortified," and offered the stuntman an apology gift: a silver pen with the inscription "Remember no-one packs a punch like Anne." It's unclear exactly how this story managed to leak out of the set, given how ridiculously secretive the shoot has been so far-- they're currently shooting in England but we don't know why, much less the details behind whatever fight scene Hathaway was involved in. Of course, you might have the chance to get some insider detail-- as we reported on Monday Pittsburgh area residents are being asked to fill in as extras during shooting dates starting July 28, playing "prisoners/thugs, guards, police officers, business men & women and sports fans." And the best part is, as an extra, you probably don't run the risk of getting clocked by Anne Hathaway . http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Anne-Hathaway-Gets-A-Little-Too-Into-Her-Catwoman-Character-Clocks-A-Dark-Knight-Rises-Stuntman-25115.html
Reese Witherspoon Could Crash The Bachelor Party In Comedy Who Invited Her?published: 2011-06-08 06:06:14 Author: Katey Rich
Between the success of Bridesmaids and the even huger success of The Hangover Part II, it's obvious that movie executives everywhere are scrambling to come up with something, anything, wedding-themed to turn into a new comedy. Now producer Reese Witherspoon-- yes, producer-- may have gotten the jump on everybody. According to Variety Witherspoon will produce and possibly star in Who Invited Her?, a comedy about a woman who insists on tagging along on a bachelor party.
The pitch is so clearly a mix between the two current hot wedding-themed movies that you want to roll your eyes, but there's hope-- the script will be written by Sascha Rothchild, the writer currently adapting her book How to Get Divorced By 30 in to a screenplay, all based on this LA Weekly article that you can read right now. It's a tightly written and very funny piece, if maybe a little navel-gazing, and indicates that Rothchild has a strong comic voice that might be capable of shining through the usual wringer of studio movie scripts. As for Witherspoon, though, the movie sounds a little off her usual path. I like the idea of her letting her freak flag fly as the crazy girl surrounded by boys on a raucous weekend, but especially now that Witherspoon is in her 30s it doesn't sound quite like the kind of role she'd take. Then again, after both How Do You Know and Water for Elephants failed to set the world on fire, maybe that kind of change of pace is exactly what she needs. http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Reese-Witherspoon-Could-Crash-The-Bachelor-Party-In-Comedy-Who-Invited-Her-25110.html
