    EW Debut First Look At Jennifer Lawrence As Katniss Everdeen In 'The Hunger Games'

    Our prayers have been answered, and the daily casting updates for "The Hunger Games," for the most part announcing nobodies who'll barely be in the film, seem to have dried up, with the film's 'tributes' -- those competing in the dystopian blood sports of the title -- now fully cast. Does that mean ...

    'Hunger Games' Helmer Gary Ross Sets Up Cyrano De Bergerac Reworking At New Regency

    With the flurry of "The Hunger Games" casting going on in the last few weeks, director Gary Ross is almost set to start filming what seems to be one of the most eagerly-anticipated films of next year, at least to its vociferous fanbase. As long as it succeeds (and, financially, it probably will), Ross will be set to take on any project he wants. According to THR, that film will be a contemporary retelling of the Cyrano de Bergerac legend, in which a plain man must seduce his love for a more handsome and richer man.

    Jennifer Lawrence Finally Locked In For 'The Hunger Games'

    The process of casting a high-profile, much sought-after role in a major would-be franchise is a complex one, with the advent of movie blogs such as ourselves. Every stage of the process is now as public as it could be, save some kind of weekly reality show documenting it, and it has the side effect of making the casting process seem endless. It's only six weeks or so since rumors of any kind started flying around regarding Gary Ross' adaptation of immensely popular young adult novel trilogy "The Hunger Games," but it's dominated the news to the extent that we're nothing but delighted that a decision's finally been made on the casting of Kat...

    Jennifer Lawrence Frontrunner For 'Hunger Games'? Hailee Steinfeld & Abigail Breslin Also In The Mix

    We're getting older, and we're no longer afraid to admit that. However, it does come with certain disadvantages. Our ears have aged to that point that we're now unable to hear Justin Bieber's voice, for instance. We were offered a role in a Neal Moritz-produced remake of "Cocoon" the other day. And,...

    Ten Dead Projects We'd Like To See Resurrected

    With John Hillcoat's 'The Promised Land' Back From The Dead, We Look At Other Films Currently In The Studio GravesLast year, pre-production was halted immediately on “The Wettest Country” -- aka John Hillcoat's "The Promised Land" starring Amy Adams, Shia LaBeouf, Ryan Gosling, Paul Dano, possibly Scarlett Johansson, Michael Shannon, etc. -- potentially killing a film we were all very excited to see. But, stunningly, the film has found a new lease on life with the involvement of Tom Hardy (Hillcoat and LaBeouf are the only other principal talent that's back so far), warming our hearts considering since we were ready to cast it onto the pile o...
