He's had the honor of being the on-screen offspring of names like Harrison Ford and Carrie-Anne Moss. He's faced a few different types of robots. And now, well, he's following the likes of Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, Matthew McConaughey, and Matt Damon.
Variety reports that Shia Labeouf is going to star in the next John Grisham flick cooking up at Paramount, The Associate. If it doesn't sound familiar -- that's because it's an upcoming novel slated for release in January. The film will focus on a student (Labeouf), heading towards graduation at Yale Law School, who somehow gets manipulated into taking a job with a prestigious law firm. This gig gives him "privileged information about a multibillion-dollar lawsuit." After that, I guess thrilling twists ensue.
It looks like the Shia train has no signs of stopping quite yet. Could the fiery world of law do it? I don't know... I »

Brandon Routh, Gil Bellows, Martin Donovan and Carrie-Anne Moss have joined the cast of "Unthinkable." They will join Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Sheen in the suspense thriller which is being produced, financed as well as distributed by Senator U.S. Routh and Bellows apparently are in as FBI anti-terrorism team members. The team is been run by Agent Brody (played by Moss). Together with the aid of a black-ops agent (Sam Jackson), they're given an assignment by an FBI director (Donovan) to take on an interrogation of an American Muslim (Sheen) who shockingly claims to have nuclear bombs planted in three U.S. cities. »

Brandon Routh is cooling his heels somewhere, waiting to find out if he'll have to don the red and blue Spandex suit again, but in the meantime the former Superman is taking a role in a movie that could probably use the help of the caped crusader. He's joining Carrie-Anne Moss, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Sheen and others in Unthinkable, a thriller about an American Muslim man who claims to have placed nuclear bombs in three U.S. cities. The Hollywood Reporter says Routh, Gil Bellows and Moss will play FBI agents who are helped in their investigation by a black-ops agent, played by--who else?--Samuel L. Jackson. Are we prepared to accept Routh as anyone but Clark Kent? He'll have his chance to prove his comedy chops in Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and I guess this will be his chance to do action that doesn't involve »
- With Tarsem dropping out of the picture, Gregor Jordan (Ned Kelly/Buffalo Soldiers) replacing him and Sam Jackson being the first player to sign onto the project, I felt that Unthinkable had lost a couple of its feathers. This ‘disinterest’ for the project has changed as of last week when Michael Sheen signed on as the film’s antagonistic force and today’s signing of supporting players in Brandon Routh (who was originally attached to star in Jordan's upcoming The Informers), Gil Bellows, Martin Donovan and Carrie-Anne Moss means that Senator Entertainment are making some serious strides in making sure that their slate of 2009 releases find larger audiences. Scripted by Peter Woodward and Oren Moverman, this delves into psychological manipulation centering on the interrogation of a man who knows the location of three nuclear weapons set to detonate in the U.S. Routh and Bellows play members of an »
After being launched from relative obscurity to play The Man of Steel, I thought Brandon Routh had a chance at becoming a bonafied leading man. Well that chance has since come and gone, with Routh well on his way to being diagnosed with Hayden Christensen syndrome. In what may be a small reversal of fortune, Routh has just been cast, along with Gil Bellows, Martin Donovan and Carrie-Anne Moss, in the upcoming thriller Unthinkable. The cast doesn't exactly scream blockbuster, but it does »

Carrie-Anne Moss is likely best known as the super hot chick in latex from the Matrix films but she is really quite talented. She did a fantastic job in Suspect Zero and in Fido and now she will take on a new thriller called Unthinkable. The synpsis from THR goes like this; Routh and Bellows play members of an FBI anti-terrorism team run by Agent Brody (Moss). With the help of a black-ops agent (Samuel L. Jackson), they’re assigned by an FBI director (Donovan) to interrogate an American Muslim man (Sheen) claiming to have nuclear bombs planted in three U.S. cities. Brandon Routh will »

The thespian, who is next seen in Ron Howard's Frost/ Nixon (as broadcaster David Frost), will also star opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Carrie Anne Moss in Unthinkable, directed by Gregor Jordan. That film looks at the ethics of torture after a terrorist threatening to detonate nuclear devices in the U.S. is questioned by a black-ops interrogator and an FBI agent, while 'Wonderland' is based on the popular children's story.
Alice In Wonderland is currently shooting in Cornwall, south-west England. »

Trailers are taking to the air this week as we discuss five previews that make me think of flying.
This is a real quick little teaser but it makes me smile every time I watch it, and I'm pretty certain that's Ed Asner voicing the single word used. I suspect this brief bit of film will not even end up in the final flick, but it's already sold me through its ability to be charming as hell. This is Pixar's tenth animated feature, though not having seen Wall-e yet I'm starting to fall behind. In addition to Asner the voice cast includes Christopher Plummer and Pixar mainstay John Ratzenberger, and is described as "a 'coming of old age' story," in which "a seventysomething hero, alongside his clueless wilderness ranger sidekick, travels the globe, fighting beasts and villains, and eating dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon. »

The first international trailer for Fireflies in the Garden has been discovered online. Unfortunately I agree with Cinematical, this isn't the greatest trailer, but I feel like I can see through it to a better film within. If you thought the ensemble cast for Winged Creatures was impressive, what until you hear the line-up in this: Willem Dafoe, Julia Roberts, Ryan Reynolds, Emily Watson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Ioan Gruffudd, and even everyone's favorite cheerleader, Hayden Panettiere. Seeing trailers like this really gets me in the mood for the upcoming film festival and Oscar season. Fireflies in the Garden will definitely be on my list of films to see. However, I've got to wonder, are ensemble dramas the new big thing?
