    Toby Kebbell Joins Brit Marling, Ellen Page & Alexander Skarsgard In 'The East'

    There may be no sign of their first collaboration, "The Sound of My Voice," appearing in theaters yet -- the disappointing box office take of "Another Earth" probably means a rethink in marketing -- but that hasn't stopped Fox Searchlight, writer/star Brit Marling and director Zal Batmanglij from pl...

    Brit Marling, Jessica Chastain, Olivia Wilde, Noomi Rapace & Olga Kurylenko Testing For 'Oblivion'

    Film Now Titled 'Horizon'Throughout all the negative PR of the last few years, Tom Cruise remains undeterred, awesomely acting as if he is still Hollywood's biggest star. After the somewhat-dicey "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" this holiday season, he's got a no-fail supporting role in "Rock Of Ages" followed by crime picture "One Shot" arriving in 2013, a pretty decent slate for a guy some audiences still consider toxic. After that, Cruise is going big, returning to the genre that served him well in "War Of The Worlds" and "Vanilla Sky" with Joseph Kosinki's "Horizon," formerly titled "Oblivion," and its currently casting two lovely ...

    Brit Marling Reportedly Eyes Tom Cruise's 'One Shot' & Redford/LaBeouf Pic 'The Company You Keep'

    Allegedly Turned Down Steven Soderbergh's 'Magic Mike' To Focus On 'The East'There is no mistaking it -- Brit Marling is having a moment. Arriving at Sundance earlier this year with two films, “Another Earth” and “Sound Of Your Voice,” performing triple duties on each film -- acting, writing and producing -- she soon saw major buzz surround both works, with Fox Searchlight picking up rights for the pair, and the former flick earning two prizes for director Mike Cahill. Certainly not a bad way to make your entrance into Hollywood and like Noomi Rapace and Jennifer Lawrence in 2010, this year Marling seems to be the new actress that everyone wa...
