Biz Break: Is Robb Stark Being Demoted From King of the North To Prince Charming?

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | April 4, 2013 | Comments ()


Cate Blanchett is still attached as the Evil Step-Mother in Disney's planned live-action Cinderella. Blanchett is the only constant thus far in the production, with Mark Romanek being replaced by Kenneth Branagh and then Emma Watson and Saoirse Ronan coming and going as Cinderella. Branagh is now looking at Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Margot Robbie ("Pan Am"), and Lily James ("Downton Abbey") for the title role. Even more interesting to me is Richard Madden, "Game of Thrones" own Robb Stark, being eyed for the role of Prince Charming. It's a demotion, but I hear it's a lot less problematic than his current gig.

Faring a bit better with casting is Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel's Phase Two film already has Chris Pratt as Star Lord and Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer. Now Zoe Saldana is in finishing talks to portray Gamora. Gamora is a green alien assassin who is basically the adopted daughter of Thanos. She's basically a badass who decided maybe Thanos was kind of a dick and turned away from him.

"Game of Thrones" cast member, Lena Headey, joins Ethan Hawke in a horror film with a familiar plot but a unique premise. In The Purge, America has decided that the best way to eliminate crime is to legalize it for 12 hours every year. Police and hospitals won't help you. If you don't want to be involved, you stay inside your house. What happens when you let the wrong person into your house?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Buck Forty

    Is Dustin going to give us a column on the inappropriateness of Gamora's belt buckle now. I mean, what function does it serve? Is it a coin purse? Maybe she holds her lipstick there? Why would a Superhero even need lipstick? This artwork raises so many questions...

  • logan

    So if Gamora has a skull over her vag does that mean men who enter there die?

  • ViciousTrollop

    I hate Zoe Saldana for some reason. She's just boring beyond belief. Get out of my movies, woman!

  • Strand

    Methinks we'll have to see how this season pans out before we can say how full Madden's schedule will be these next 12 months. Fufufufuu

  • Steady...

  • Shazza

    That's who Zoe Saldana is playing? What, was Gina Torres too busy? Or Gina Carano?

  • BendinIntheWind

    I have no strong opinion on Zoe Saldana, but now I would LOVE to see Gina Torres in this piece.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    I think The Purge has potential but I was really hoping Lena would be on the psycho murderer side.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Maybe she is? She and her husband "don't feel the need" to kill, so they could have a differently timed outlet.

  • Turk Levenstein

    Why Rob! Jaime is the one that looks exactly like prince charming

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Because Jaime is older enough than a prospective Cinderella that it would be creepy. Even Rob is a little on the old side.

  • Strand

    I think he's referring to the fact that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau looks EXACTLY like Prince Charming from that Shrek sequel. Really, it's unnerving.

  • Mrs. Julien

    He looks better.

  • Salieri2


  • Bert_McGurt

    True, but Madden is more age-appropriate compared to the leading ladies they're interested in. Coster-Waldau (he's 42) has a good 20 years or so on the girls.

  • Oh I wanna see that Purge movie now for some reason. But Ethan Hawke. He doesn't really inspire me with confidence.

    I won't forgive him for Daybreakers.

  • Jezzer

    He more than made up for it with "Sinister."
