Are you ready for a Beach Boys musical? Fox 2000 is reportedly moving ahead with All Summer Long, having tapped The Vow helmer Michael Sucsy to sit in the director’s chair on the project, and now we’re hearing that English model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne is in talks for the lead role of Caroline.
Further plot details are being kept under wraps, but Fox 2000 paid $2 million to buy the pitch by Susannah Grant, along with rights to the Beach Boys catalog. All Summer Long is reportedly a 1960s California-set story inspired by the band’s music.
After breaking out as a model for Victoria’s Secret, Burberry and Dkny, Delevingne successfully managed to transition into acting with a small role in Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina. Since then, she’s been keeping busy with a number of high-profile parts.

Though some had expressed doubts recently that Robin Williams completed his vocal work on Terry Jones’ new comedy Absolutely Anything before his tragic death last week, the film’s producers have gone on the record to assure us that Williams’ voice will indeed show up in the film as that of Dennis, canine chum to Simon Pegg’s main character.“Contrary to reports, we are able to confirm that Robin Williams completed his voice recording for the role of Dennis,” say Bill Jones and Ben Timlett in a statement. “Everyone on the Absolutely Anything team was distraught to hear the sad news and we send our condolences to Robin's family.”Pegg plays Neil Clarke in the film, a disillusioned teacher who discovers he has magical powers, albeit in more of a Thor sense of the word since the abilities come from some alien interlopers. The extra-terrestrials in question will be »
Following the tragic death of Robin Williams at the age of 63 last week, it has been revealed that the actor may not have finished the voice work for his final film project. Simon Pegg revealed in an interview with The Guardian that he isn't sure if Robin Williams had finished voicing his role as Dennis the Dog in Absolutely Anything.
"I'm not sure Robin had completed doing his voice in the movie. He was doing the voice of my dog and I hope that he had completed it because it would be a real shame not to have him in it. And of course there will be a degree of sadness there, but the work he did do would have been done with his usual verve and brilliance."
The untimely death of Robin Williams has certainly been felt, and will continue to reverberate in our minds and hearts, and on our screens, for years to come. Williams was at work on a number of projects before he died, four of which are films that are already in the can and will be seen this year and next.
The first project is Merry Friggin’ Christmas, an indie comedy with a November 7th release date, which also stars Joel McHale and Wendy McLendon-Covey. Williams plays McHale’s father, who joins his son on a road trip to retrieve some forgotten gifts. This sounds a little bit too close to some of Williams’s later film roles (like Rv), which left a little something to be desired, but just the presence of the comedian on screen will be enough to get me to give it a chance.
The actor will then »

The world is still in shock over the passing of Robin Williams yesterday and details are still coming out about what is now reportedly said to be an "apparent suicide attempt by hanging" following a battle with severe depression according to CBS News.
With the tragedy of an actor's untimely death though comes the grim business of show business, namely determining the fate of the projects they were involved in. The 63-year-old was a busy man with several films still awaiting release.
Williams was not in the midst of shooting a movie when he died, though he had been developing a sequel to "Mrs. Doutbtfire". Variety reports that the project, which was in the scripting stage, is now in doubt and will probably be scrapped.
That leaves four final films involving Williams that have yet to hit cinemas, the biggest being him reprising his role as President Teddy Roosevelt in »

On October 24th, a star-studded cast is going to take you on a very strange trip through Stonehearst Asylum. Kate Beckinsale, Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley, Brendan Gleeson, and Jim Sturgess are all residing within the walls of the Asylum (along with several other notable cast members), and as we venture inside with a young Doctor, we’re going to find out that nothing is as it seems, and it’s a tricky affair to figure out just who the crazy people are.
While everything about the general idea of this one might not have everyone pre-ordering their tickets, there is more than meets the eye at play behind-the-scenes as well. It’s based on a short story by Edgar Allen Poe, just to start, and you’ve got to wonder how we got all these names attached to a project, if there wasn’t something very cool going on with the screenplay. »

Edgar Allan Poe's classic tale of good old-fashioned switcheroo based shenanigans 'The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether' has been adapted into Brad Anderson's ('The Call') latest mystery thriller 'Stonehearst Asylum'. Formerly titled 'Eliza Graves' the adaptation stars Kate Beckinsale ('Underworld: Awakening'), Jim Sturgess ('Heartless'), Michael Caine ('The Dark Knight Rises'), Ben Kingsley ('Lucky Number Slevin'), David Thewlis ('Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2') and Brendan Gleeson ('28 Days Later') and the brand new trailer has been unveiled which you can check out in all its glory below. »
A who’s who of British cinema stars in the Gothic psychological thriller Stonehearst Asylum. Based on a short story byEdgar Allan Poe, the film boasts an impressive Brit cast including Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley, Kate Beckinsale, David Thewlis, Brendan Gleeson, and Jim Sturgess, it’s a miracle that this film managed to fly under the radar for so long.
Original titled Eliza Graves, the thriller is set at a mental institution, which film lovers will know, is always filled with flickering lights, dark hallways, and spooky sounds. Sturgess stars as a recent medical grad who becomes smitten with his Stonehearst Asylum patient Eliza (Beckinsale), completely unaware that the mental institution has been taken over by its patients.
Directed by Brad Anderson (The Call, The Machinist), Stonehearst Asylum looks to borrow more than a few elements from Shutter Island, including the casting of Ben Kingsley. The trailer shows the British »

Since “Session 9″ director Brad Anderson’s “Stonehearst Asylum” was originally called “Eliza Graves,” also the name of Kate Beckinsale’s character in the movie, I sort of assumed she was the star, and that the movie would be centered entirely around her. Turns out, not so much. The movie has since gotten a new title, “Stonehearst Asylum,” which seems to be more appropriate since it’s actually all about Jim Sturgess’ character, with Beckinsale in a co-starring role. Of course, don’t tell the guys who made the movie posters that. Anyways, check out the first trailer for “Stonehearst Asylum.” Yes, I’m pretty sure they gave away all of the film’s plot twists in the trailer. Who needs to be surprised anymore? A recent medical school grad who takes a position at a mental institution soon finds himself taken with one of his colleagues — though he has »
Nothing quite beats a good psychological horror story and if there is one author whose name is synonymous with the genre it is Edgar Allan Poe. We haven't seen a good adaptation of a Poe work in a long time, but the trailer for Stonehearst Asylum teases a scary good time. Director Brad Anderson is known for some atmospheric and chilling films like The MacHinist and Session 9 and this could be another winner. Starring Kate Beckinsale, Ben Kingsley, Michael Caine, Brendan Gleeson, and Jim »

Here’s the first trailer for the Edgar Allan Poe-inspired psychological thriller Stonehearst Asylum, which was previously titled Eliza Graves. As FirstShowing points out, this looks discouragingly similar to Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island. Both are period dramas set at an insane asylum where all isn’t as it appears, and both star Ben Kingsley in seemingly similar roles. In Stonehearst Asylum, Jim Sturgess stars as a Harvard Medical School graduate who takes a job at a mental institution, unaware the it has been taken over by its patients.
So with all the similarities to Scorsese’s semi-recent foray into horror, and Stonehearst Asylum playing what may or may not be an open hand in the poster and trailer (though I'd suspect some twists, hopefully), what does this film have going for it? It has an all-star cast and a director back in his element. Along with Sturgess and Kingsley, »

It’s probably a very bad sign that I’ve heard nothing about Stonehearst Asylum despite the film starring the likes of Jim Sturgess, Kate Beckinsale, Ben Kingsley, Brendan Gleeson and Michael Caine. A cast like that usually gets a movie on my radar – but up until the trailer and poster for this upcoming thriller landed yesterday, I hadn’t heard a peep (though it is worth noting that the title was once Eliza Graves, which I had at least heard was in development with Beckinsale starring). Here’s hoping that radio silence isn’t because Millenium Entertainment is trying to bury the flick - even if the story isn’t exactly up to scratch, Stonehearst Asylum should be at least a fun chance to see Kingsley and Caine ham it up.
The trailer establishes a mysterious, almost ghostly aesthetic (à la Shutter Island) and seems to hint at an exceptionally twisty period thriller. »

Stonehearst Asylum will be released on October 24. »
Did we just watch the entirety of Brad Anderson.s newest thriller Stonehearst Asylum, or was that, in fact, just a trailer like it's labeled? All this talk of mysteries turned into reveals and then everything smooshed together; all the while, Kate Beckinsale wants to know what Jim Sturgess is doing there. This isn.t exactly the movie I was hoping for back when it was called Eliza Graves. Still, I.m a sucker for asylum movies. And Anderson knows a thing or two about asylum movies, having directed 2001.s stellar psychological twister Session 9. (Still the best thing David Caruso has ever done.) With the haughtily titled Stonehearst Asylum, he.s got Ben Kingsley playing opposite Michael Caine along with Brendan Gleeson to back up his two leads. The pic.s plot is also fairly intriguing, and I like the period look and feel of it. But this trailer »
Documentaries will have a significant presence at 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival. “I’m thrilled that a 25th anniversary screening is being held at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it premiered and was awarded the Festival’s major prize, the People’s Choice Award,” stated Michael Moore who will be attending the event. “The fact that Roger & Me is as relevant today as it was 25 years ago is a travesty. Actually, it’s more than that. At least in 1989, there were still 50,000 General Motors jobs left in Flint. Today, there are but 4,000 Gm jobs that remain in Flint, the birthplace of General Motors.”
Tiff will be showcasing new documentaries by Nick Broomfield, Ethan Hawke, The Yes Men, Joshua Oppenheimer, Frederick Wiseman, Jonathan Nossiter plus the debut efforts of Marah Strauch and Tamara Erde. “This year’s selection is heavily populated with rebels, resisters and risk-takers,” remarked Tiff Docs programmer Thom Powers. »

Based on a short story by Edgar Allen Poe, Stonehearst Asylum (formerly titled Eliza Graves) stars Jim Sturgess as a new employee at a mental institution who discovers that things are not quite as they seem. Kate Beckinsale plays a mysterious patient named Eliza Graves (so we assume she's important) and Michael Caine plays a prisoner (maybe? Or not!), while Ben Kingsley, in a role very similar to his part in Shutter Island, plays the creepy medical chief who, again, is not what he seems. The movie comes out October 24, at which point we hope to finally get some answers. »

Jim Sturgess plays a novice doctor obsessed with madness in “Stonehearst Asylum.” Ben Kingsley, Michael Caine and Kate Beckinsale co-star in the turn-of-the-century creep-fest, though the trailer remains vague as to the extent of their insanity. “I've always been fascinated by the troubled mind, since as long as I can remember,” says Sturgess, approaching the foreboding (and titular) loony bin for the first time. ”I have the desire and the training, all I lack is the clinical experience.” See video: Michael Keaton's Life ‘Smells Like Balls’ in Full ‘Birdman’ Trailer (Video) “When you found the key to what a man fears most, »

One weird thing about Stonehearst Asylum is that I had never heard of the film before today, despite a cast featuring Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley and Kate Beckinsale, but suddenly it's a real entity with a trailer and poster and everything. Of course that can happen when you've been operating under the name Eliza Graves (a film I had been aware of) for several years and haven't announced a title change. Brad Anderson (The Call) directed it from a screenplay by Joe Gangemi. The film is based on the Edgar Allan Poe story The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether. In the film Jim Sturgess plays a recent medical school grad who takes a position at a mental institution soon finds himself taken with one of his colleagues, though he has no initial idea of a recent, horrifying staffing change. The film also stars Brendan Gleeson and David Thewlis. »
