"Ivanhoe," the literary classic that apparently everyone except me had to read in school, is being turned into an $80 million action-epic.
Yesterday it was Jackie Earle Haley joining Johnny Depp for "Dark Shadows," today it's Eva Green.
"The Avengers" is about to get underway and director Joss Whedon is looking for a sidekick for Nick Fury (played by Samuel L. Jackson). The possibilities include: Morena Baccarin ("Firefly"), Colbie Smulders ("How I Met Your Mother"), and Mary Elizabeth Winstead ("Scott Pilgrim"). That is a great list but being the "Firefly" nerd that I am, I'm rooting for Baccarin.
John Likes Movies ranks the 15 Coen Brothers movies and while I don't agree with the rankings ("Raising Arizona" is MAGNIFICENT), any attention paid to the Coens is always a plus in my book.
And just to continue the theme, Hollywood Reporter has a very nice interview with the Coen brothers.
