Rachel McAdams is tapped for the remake of The Orphanage. Also, she and Saoirse Ronan might be up for the two leads in the Michael Douglas-also-starring adaption of We Have Always Lived In The Castle. Seeing how this is one of my designated Favorite Books Ever, I do not mind this at all.

Ewan McGregor, in his continuous effort to piss me off, has joined the upcoming Madonna-directed (probable) bomb W.E., where he will play King Edward VIII, with Vera Farmiga and Abbie Cornish.

They are making a movie, maybe, of the British show Skins. Might be featuring every castmember that isn't dead. Okay?

Olivia Wilde will probably be a Bond girl in 'Bond 23'.

John Malkovich and Frances McDormand, for some reason, have joined the cast of Transformers 3. And then, the Coen Brothers let out a sob.

Penelope Cruz will be playing Blackbeard's daughter in 'Pirates 4'. Now, I'm all for Johnny and Penelope back together again, but can't they do it on Lars von Trier's 'Melancholia', which, Charlotte Gainsburgh recently signed up for.

Will Ferrall is doing a drama called 'Everything Must Go', about a relapsing alcoholic. Rebbeca Hall, unsung hero of Vicky Christina Barcelona, has joined.

Happy fucking Monday...

Is that Penelope/Lars von Trier thing definite?

Umm... why must they remake Orphanage exactly?
And that's kind of bizarre on the Frances McDormand thing... speaking of which, just watched North Country for the first time since theaters and she was far better than I remember... Ah, Frances. :)

Simon said..., she dropped out to do the proverbial Depp reunion. Alas.
