Movie News Today

For the three of you who still care, Johnny Depp's Lone Ranger film is back on track and will begin pre-production soon.

Don Johnson has joined the cast of Django Unchained, meaning Quentin Tarantino never saw a trailer for Bucky Larson.

The cast for Robert Redford's The Company You Keep, already quite strong, just jumped up another notch with the additions of Anna Kendrick, Terrence Howard, Brendan Gleeson, and Sam Elliot. Wow!

Jim Carrey and Steve Carell will reunite in Burt Wonderstone, a comedy about feuding magicians. Hollywood is funny; Carell got his real break as a scene-stealer in Carrey's Bruce Almighty and has since become a star while Carrey has fallen out of favor with both audiences and studios since then and now needs his former understudy (as it were) to get him back on track.

Javier Bardem has confirmed that he will play the villain in the upcoming James Bond film. Bardem is always a good choice for a villain, of course, but I especially think he and Daniel Craig will make outstanding rivals.

Hugh Jackman told MTV that they may shoot both PG-13 and R-rated versions to the Wolverine sequel. I doubt this will really happen but it does hint that the film will have a little more edge (think Dark Knight) than the previous X-Men films. That's a good thing in my mind.

If you're having trouble deciding which TV shows to watch this year, be sure to check out Matt Kraus' Fall TV Landscape piece over at I Eat Films.

The first full trailer for The Avengers dropped today. Yeah, I'll see that.
