    Former Wife Swapping Yankee Mike Kekich Looks To Block 'The Trade' With Ben Affleck & Matt Damon

    Rebecca Hall, Rachel Weisz & Naomi Watts Wishlist Candidates For Female Lead RolesRanked #35 on the Black List in 2009, Dave Mandel's script for the true story tale "The Trade" has been in the works for a while and was first announced as a starring vehicle for Ben Affleck and Matt Damon last winter. The story is based on real-life players Fritz Peterson and Mike Kekich, who in 1973 revealed that they had been swapping wives and fell for each other's partners. Peterson and Kekich's ex-wife are still together today, while the other couple has since split up with Kekich later remarrying. Affleck would play the role of Peterson with Matt Damon pl...

    Rachel Weisz Joins Nicole Kidman In 'The Danish Girl'

    Actress Also Loosely Attached To The Child Kidnapping Drama 'Snatch Back'The gestating transgendered drama "The Danish Girl," with Nicole Kidman has had several false starts since it was announced in September 2009. Originally, Tomas Alfredson, the filmmaker behind the lauded Swedish vampire drama, "Let The Right One In," was going to make the picture his English-language directorial debut with Kidman and Charlize Theron in the lead roles. But for one reason or another, talent kept dropping out of the picture. First Theron bowed out, only to be replaced with Gwyneth Paltrow. Then Alfredson left to direct "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," eviden...

    Ben Foster Joins Rachel Weisz & Anthony Hopkins In Fernando Meirelles' '360'

    We were little worried about Ben Foster for a moment. He's going to be starring in the upcoming Jason Statham thing "The Mechanic" and he recently signed on to the pretty average-sounding thriller "Contraband" with Mark Wahlberg -- we were beginning to wonder if the Foster we knew from "The Messenge...

    First Look: Rachel Weisz & Tom Hiddleston In Terrence Davies' 'The Deep Blue Sea'

    Terrence Davies doesn't make movies very often, but when he does, we sit up and pay attention because he is one of the masters. His last film was the documentary/memoir/tone poem "Of Time And The City," and that was four years ago. Eight years before then was "The House Of Mirth." So when it was ann...

    'The Dark Knight Rises' To Feature Catwoman? Christopher Nolan Seeking Love Interest & Villain

    Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway & Keira Knightley In The Mix; Tom Hardy Reportedly Playing A VillainHere we go again. We probably could have broken this story ourselves as every one of these names have cropped up in recent casting rounds, but the most intriguing part of this story are not the names attached, but the revelation that Christopher Nolan is seeking two female leads for "The Dark Knight Rises": one, a love interest for Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale), the other, for a villain. This really only leaves a few possibilities for the potential foe of Batman (unless Nolan is going really obscure): Catw...
