Casting Call: Mireille Enos in Talks to Join GANGSTER SQUAD; Matthew Goode and Lucas Till Sign on for STOKER
by Matt Goldberg Posted: August 9th, 2011Following the two casting stories we had for you this morning, we now have a few more this afternoon. First up, The Killing star Mireille Enos’ may land another high-profile gig after signing on to co-star in World War Z earlier this year. THR reports that Enos is in talks to play the wife of Josh Brolin’s character in Ruben Fleischer’s period crime drama Gangster Squad. Brolin plays John O’Mara, one of the few good cops not on the payroll of crime boss Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) in 1940s Los Angeles. If she signs on, “Enos will play O’Mara’s wife, who is afraid her husband may die while in the line of duty but still helps him pick his squad. The film’s impressive cast also includes Ryan Gosling, Michael Pena, Anthony Mackie, and Giovanni Ribisi. Emma Stone is also in talks to join the film.

Vera Farmiga and Mark Strong Sign on for CLOSER TO THE MOON
by Phil Brown Posted: August 9th, 2011Vera Farmiga’s career has really taken off in recent years with the long-underrated actress seemingly appearing in a new movie every month varying from her Oscar-nominated work in Up In The Air to more schlocky fare like The Orphan. Today Farmiga has signed for her latest role in the rather intriguing-sounding communist bank-robber drama (yep, that’s a genre now) Closer To The Moon. British character actor Mark Strong will play the lead role as a put upon bank robber forced to re-enact his crime for a propaganda film. It’s an incredibly strange, but undeniably interesting concept that could quickly become one of the biggest Romanian films of all time. We know that you’ve all been waiting for that, so today is a day of celebration. Hit the jump for further details. ......... http://collider.com/vera-farmiga-mark-strong-closer-to-the-moon/108313/
Trailer and Poster for Still Creepy-Looking Disney Film THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN
by Matt Goldberg Posted: August 9th, 2011
We posted this trailer yesterday but Disney asked us to take it down because it was “incorrect”. Today it’s up on Yahoo! Movies and it’s almost exactly the same so here’s what I wrote yesterday: The trailer for The Odd Life of Timothy Green stars out innocently enough. Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton play a couple who are unable to conceive a child. They write down their hopes and dreams for the child they’ll never have, put the writing in a box, and bury the box in their backyard. In the middle of the night, they awaken to find a dirt-covered young boy in their house and he’s calling them “mom and dad.” If that actually happened, you would not be uplifted. You would be freaked out beyond all reason. Furthermore, we’re now going to have scores of child molesters burying their wish lists and hoping for a case of sprouted boy. Is that what you want The Odd Life of Timothy Green? IS IT?
If you missed the trailer yesterday you can check it out after the jump along with the poster. Watch the trailer and be horrified with me. The Odd Life of Timothy Green is set to open August 15, 2012 and believe me, I question the wisdom of running a trailer for a movie that’s over a year away. ......... http://collider.com/odd-life-timothy-green-trailer-poster/108307/
