    Dragon Tattoo's Rapace Goes Hollywood as Remake Goes English, Jolie as Go-To Action Star

    - Noomi Rapace took herself out of the running for David Fincher's adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - the Swedish adaptation won her the country's Oscar equivalent for best actress. Rapace wants to expand her career in new directions, and is spending the week in LA meeting with directors, according to THR (including McG and Ridley Scott), producers (Avi Arad and Lorenzo Di Bonaventura) and studio executives at Paramount and Warner Bros. to plan her attack. Repped by UTA and fluent in English, Rapace could burst into Hollywood off the momentum of Dragon Tattoo's success. But it's Rooney Mara who will grab the career hype as she ch...

    Small Screen | Spike Lee Goes Back to New Orleans, Two French Classics on Criterion & More

    Four years after Spike Lee's two-part documentary "When the Levees Broke:  A Requiem in Four Acts" debuted on HBO, Lee follows it up with "If God Is Willing And Da Creek Don't Rise," another look at the country's gulf communities in and around New Orleans.  While the focus will be on the communities' ability to rebuild and stick together years down the line from Hurricane Katrina, Lee has implied that the BP oil spill and its effect on the region will play a role.  Cinematical's Christopher Campbell reports, "Reportedly the doc, which premieres on HBO August 23rd and 24th, was supposed to conclude with the New Orleans Saints' Super Bowl victo...

    "Avatar" Sequels Could Be Less Violent, Influenced by South American Tribe

    In anticipation of the slightly extended re-release of "Avatar," or as James Cameron calls it, the "last hurrah in theaters" for families at the end of the summer, the filmmaker talked with Entertainment Weekly about that nine minutes of footage added in for the blockbuster's return to cinemas, as well as hint of an even longer cut that will exclusively be available on some future DVD edition. But the most interesting bit of the interview [thanks to The Playlist for highlighting it] has to do with the film's sequels, the plots of which Cameron says have been altered a bit from his original plans due to a response to "Avatar" by an indigenous ...
