Spoiled, awful kids at last get their own take on the Robin Hood story with The Bling Ring, Sofia Coppola’s tale of rich little shits robbing from even richer little shits. Based on a true story, the film stars Emma Watson as one of a group of a Hollywood Hills kids whose ennui and shittiness leads them to become burglars of the rich and famous, robbing the likes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge, Megan Fox, and Orlando Bloom–who assumedly just got mistaken for Hilton while wearing a Legolas wig, because otherwise, come on. Does he really deserve to be lumped in there? He’s just out there bein’ Bloom, man.
Here’s the first full trailer. If you’re a Sofia Coppola fan, be prepared to be let down by the lack of dreamy gazes through car windows and what looks like her most straightforward, plot-driven work yet.
As we’ve already learned he’s wont to do, Jean-Claude Van Damme has found himself once again getting a little too excited in public.
While posting this adjacent photo of his 1994 self caressing Stan Lee, the actor on Sunday decided to also propose a new Marvel connection, basically saying he’d be up for joining The Avengers 2, should Earth’s next threat require a 50-something Belgian guy.
“Well, it would be fun to play one of these types of amazing comic book characters again,” Van Damme wrote–but not without prompt, as he also made clear, “I read that Chris Hemsworth (star of “Thor” and brother of Liam Hemsworth, “The Expendables 2″) would like me to costar in “The Avengers 2″ movie!” Which, obviously, no, that’s not really the case–though it is slightly more true than you might imagine. LatinoReview points to this ten-month-old USA Today story, where The Avengers cast was asked who they’d add to the team. Chris Evans said Salma Hayek (she has yet to formally respond via Facebook), while Hemsworth did, in fact, say “Van Damme,” specifying: “from Bloodsport. A big kick to the alien head.”
So, yeah, you probably shouldn’t be expecting to see him in Avengers anytime soon. But on the plus side, you can apparently expect to see him rendered in oil paint very soon. “Keep an eye on my Facebook wall, everyone,” Van Damme writes, following a post in which he verifies that he is not dead. “I am announcing the ‘JCVD Artwork Contest’ soon.”
Clint Eastwood still hasn’t been able to find a male lead for his A Star Is Born remake, and now both star Beyoncé and any and all references to how he “shoulda put a ring on it” have been lost on the director as well.
Though Beyoncé was long-attached to the project, Variety reports the singer-cum-actress has now dropped out of plans to play the talented young ingenue role–last played by Barbra Streisand in 1976′s A Star Is Born remake–due to scheduling issues. Or rather, a lack of scheduling to have issues with: the forever-delayed project still doesn’t have a shoot date, nor an actor to play the drunken mentor role, and having Eastwood’s face staring out of the Beyoncé calendar as a permanent question mark just became too much to handle.
The director is said to be interested in jazz musician Esperanza Spaulding now taking over the part, but he apparently won’t be offering it to her or anyone else until he finds the male co-star–which, as we’ve been following, hasn’t been going so well, with Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith, Christian Bale, Jon Hamm, Robert Downey Jr., Russell Crowe, and even Eminem all once rumored to have been offered or considered for the part, to no avail. Eastwood is definitely scowling about this right now.
It’s a match made in some bullshit Manhattan gallery opening! Or maybe in a Parisian café, over coffee and a discussion on relationships? Either way, Julie Delpy wants to get Woody Allen in a movie.
Speaking on Wednesday, Delpy–whose latest film is already drawing obvious comparisons to Woody–expressed some desire to work with Allen, but seemed to acknowledge that getting such parallel career lines to meet might be tough, telling The Hollywood Reporter:
“I wrote a movie [with an Allen part in mind], but maybe it’s bad. So I have to see. Maybe it’s not such a good film. It’s called Virgo Rising. It’s very funny. But I don’t know if I’ll do it. I don’t know if I’ll ever dare to offer him the part.”
Should the project come together–Delpy said she still needs to work on the screenplay–it’s expected that it will be liked by white people.
Like anyone sensible, Steven Spielberg wants Thor at his side for the impending robot wars.
Deadline reports the director recently had a clandestine meeting (with “assumed names” and all, supposedly) with Chris Hemsworth, and having ascertained that the Snow White and the Huntsman star is just as hunky as he’d dreamed, Spielberg wants him for the lead in Robopocalypse.
Based on the novel by Daniel H. Wilson, the film has a script from Cabin in the Woods and Cloverfield writer Drew Goddard, and it sounds like pretty much what you’d expect from something called Robopocalypse: Man makes a bunch of robots, robots revolt, man fights back because no machine can crush the indomitable spirit of man, etc. Though Spielberg has been working on the project since late 2010, production on Lincoln slowed development for some time, so there’s little else to report for now. But if you’re a Los Angeles waiter, and you recently thought the party calling themselves “Chip” and “Merv” looked a lot like an Asgardian and the director of Schindler’s List, you were probably right.
Speaking at Comic Con’s Iron Man panel–at least in some sense answering the question, “Is there any way to get Gwyneth Paltrow in an outfit more farcical than her $ 90 goop t-shirt?”–Jon Favreau and Marvel production president Kevin Feige let slip their apparently long-held interest in getting Paltrow’s Pepper Potts in an Iron Man suit.
In the comics, Potts eventually gets her own For Her edition of Tony Stark’s armor, and it seems the film Potts nearly has, too, with Feige reportedly saying (via), “Everyone at this table thinks it would be the coolest thing in the world to see Pepper get in the suit at some point.”
“We almost did it a few times; we talked about it a lot. I think we all share your enthusiasm for that, and we all want to see Gwyneth kick a little ass,” Favreau added, mistakenly thinking Comic Con attendees are just nerdier Chris Martins.
Given their word choice and the fact they were willing to talk about it at all, it doesn’t sound like Tony Stark’s unnervingly-hollow-voiced assistant will be suiting up for the third Iron Man, but then again, reports denied Ben Kingsley would playing Mandarin before Marvel turned around and confirmed it last weekend, so you never know. Maybe we’ll yet see Gwyneth Paltrow with a layer of metal covering her affectations. If not, well, then I guess we’ll just see her in some $ 200 jeans.
Before we go back down Xenu’s rabbit hole, let’s just take a minute to marvel at Katie Holmes‘ acting skills. Here she is in her car after making her first public appearance for Project Runway yesterday where clearly she let her guard down for a moment and, understandably, looks like a tired woman who’s aging Read More …
See how she’s making her breasts clearly visible while hovering them close to Suri? Like garlic to a vampire. So remember about 45 minutes ago when I wrote that post about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes getting divorced and made a joke about her grabbing Suri and running for the goddamn hills. She grabbed Suri Read More …
