Casting: Naomi Watts Ready For 'Demolition,' Idris Elba Eyes Guy Ritchie's 'Knights Of The Roundtable' And More

An actor who is currently thrilling us with the choices he’s making is Jake Gyllenhaal. Did you see that terrific teaser for “Nightcrawler” yet? Watch it here. Anyway, another promising project on his plate is “Dallas Buyers Club” director Jean-Marc Vallee‘s “Demolition,” and he’s being joined by Naomi Watts. Penned Bryan Sipe, the story “follows a young investment banker (Gyllenhaal) struggling to understand his emotional disconnect following the tragic death of his wife in an auto accident. As he tears apart his life in a distraught effort to see where he went wrong, he becomes obsessed with destruction and develops a unique relationship with a pot-smoking single mother (Watts) who rescues him.” We’re down, just tell us when to show up.

Now a fully fledged tentpole filmmaker, Guy Ritchie is pressing on with “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur” and he’s got Idris Elba circling the role of “Bedivere, Arthur’s father’s right-hand man who takes it upon himself to train the young warrior for battle as he learns his true destiny.” And while we wish Ritchie would go back and make something smaller and grittier instead of popcorn munchers, we’d def watch Stringer Bell get medieval.

Emma Thompson, Daniel Brühl, Riccardo Scamarcio, Lily James, Jamie Dornan and Alicia Vikander are joining Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller in “Chef.” John Wells (“The Company Men,” “August: Osage County“) is directing this culinary world movie about an A-list chef who will stop at nothing for a third Michelin star.

Frank Langella has joined Viggo Mortensen in “Captain Fantastic,” with production just about to start. “28 Hotel Rooms” director Matt Ross is behind this one about “an idealistic father who, after a decade of living off the grid in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, must return with his six young kids to assimilate back into society.” [Deadline]

I want to bugger Naomi Watts (as the bird was in 1986 when the bird was 18, not as the bird is now obviously).


I'm curious about why other than Daily Mail no one picked about Chef aka Adam Jones casting?
