    Scorsese and Luhrmann Go 3-D with Hugo Cabret, The Great Gatsby

    Haven't the studios figured out yet that discerning audiences consider 3-D to be a negative? Warner Bros. got it when they returned Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 to 2-D. Why downgrade a Tiffany property?

    Hammer & DiCaprio Join List of Hunks Who Kiss On Screen: See Videos

    Armie Hammer says that Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar biopic with Leonardo DiCaprio will feature more than one lip-locking scene. "It's not a kissing scene—it's a ton of kissing scenes," he told E! at the SAG Awards. Hammer plays Clyde Tolson, the alleged secret lover of J. Edgar Hoover (played by DiCaprio). Shooting is set to begin this month, and in true Eastwood style, the boys will be getting down to business without much fussing around. Adds Hammer:"I'm so excited to work with Clint, and from what I hear, he's not the type of director who has a ton of rehearsals and takes.

    Production Watch: Watts Joins DiCaprio & Hammer for Eastwood's J. Edgar, Mark Webber Keeps It Indie

    - Earlier this month Charlize Theron stepped aside (and into Snow White and the Huntsman), moving Naomi Watts and Amy Adams up in line to be considered for Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar Hoover biopic. Watts has won the role of secretary Helen Gandy, whom Hoover considered an "indispensable" part of his political and personal life. Gandy spent the weeks following Hoover's death destroying files which contained incriminating information which the President used to control the capital's most powerful men. Eastwood couldn't have chosen better. Watts joins the male cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer, Ed Westwick, Josh Lucas, Damon Herriman and Ke...

    Casting Watch: Theron vs. Rapace For Alien, Hobbit Reunites Cast, Hawkes and Parker for Indie Drama

    - Charlize Theron won't be joining Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer and new cast member Ed Westwick in Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar. Naomi Watts and Amy Adams are being eyed by Eastwood to fill the role of Helen Gandy (Hoover's personal secretary). Who can blame Theron for turning down a secretary when she's set to play the Evil Queen in Unviersal's Snow White and the Huntsman. Twentieth Century Fox reportedly is rewriting their Alien franchise prequel for Theron, but director Ridley Scott seems to be favoring Dragon Tattoo's Noomi Rapace. Theron is the only female movie star beyond Angelina Jolie who can carry an action movie--while less-known S...
