Jennifer Lawrence — who is currently negotiating a raise to $10 million for Catching Fire — is also in talks to star in The Ends of the Earth, an “epic” love story based on the real Lydie Marland, whose oil tycoon of an adopted father risked everything to have an affair with her. How very Woody Allen of him.
Meanwhile, according to Movieline, Terry Crews is working with Mike Judge to bring back his beloved Idiocracy character, President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho. For now, they’re only working on a web presence, but if it takes off, a Idiocracy spin-off could flow from it.
I’m already bored with the potential Daredevil reboot, but for the record, Fox is still trying to make it happen with Joe Carnahan (The A-Team) on board to direct. However, filming has to begin by October, lest the rights revert back to Marvel. There’s also word, according to Deadline, of a potential swap between Fox and Marvel, in which Fox would give up rights to Galactus and the Silver Surfer in exchange for more time to reboot Daredevil. Whatever, y’all. It’s still a BLIND SUPERHERO (via Slashfilm).
Oh, hey! That Robocop remake we’re all kind of excited about because the cast includes Joel Kinnamon (as Robocop), Hugh Laurie (as the villain), Jackie Earle Haley, Jay Barachel, Sam Jackson, and Gary Oldman is now in talks to add Michael K. Williams. Please say your favorite Omar Little line in your head to celebrate this occasion.
Oh, and no big deal, but ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT: THE MOVIE starts filming today.
The Arrested Development backlash begins … now.
Omar in Robocop? The Arrested Development movie kicking off? Those aren’t even my favorite news stories of the day. This one is: TV Guide is reporting that Busy Phillips will appear as herself in the season premiere of Don’t Trust the B—— in Apt. 23, as James Van Der Beek — who also plays himself in the show — attempts to put together a Dawson’s Creek reunion. You know, Joshua Jackson (R.I.P.) will be up for it, as will the other guy that no one cares about. Michelle Williams is dating Jason Segel, which suggests she has a sense of humor, so that’s also a possibility. Kate Holmes? Come on, lady: It’s the perfect follow-up to ditching Tom Cruise. Come get your ovation. Let’s make this happen. The world needs this.
