    Guillermo Del Toro Says Alfonso Cuarón's Plans For 'Gravity' Are 5 Years Ahead Of Its Time

    Filmmaker Also Says Cuaron Has Consulted James Cameron & David FincherWe're not going to recount the long journey Alfonso Cuarón has taken to get "Gravity" made, but needless to say after original lead actress Angelina Jolie bailed, the film seemed on the verge of collapsing before Sandra Bullock stepped in. The picture then looked like it might be dashed against the rocks when co-star Robert Downey Jr. had to exit the project to film “The Avengers,” but then George Clooney came aboard to rescue it in late 2010. Well, with the film now in production with a release date set for late next year, it's now a matter of seeing if the all the drama a...

    Ex-'The Hobbit' Actor Rob Kazinsky Joins Guillermo Del Toro's 'Pacific Rim,' Willem Dafoe In Talks

    If you're cast in a major blockbuster, only to be replaced publicly, it can be hard to get your career back on track again. Stuart Townsend, for instance, shot scenes as Aragorn in "Lord of the Rings," before Peter Jackson decided he was too young, and replaced him with Viggo Mortensen. Townsend's heat remained for a little while -- he was the lead in "Queen of the Damned," and one of "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," but, well, we know what happened to those, and Townsend hasn't had much luck in recent years. Dougray Scott, meanwhile, was meant to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer's "X-Men," but had to bow out when "Mission Impossible 2"...
