Rodrigo Cortes' Buried will premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival in the Park City at Midnight category, one of eight films selected from over 3724 titles from all over the world. I've been following this project since it was announced. For those of you who don't know, the story is about a U.S. contractor working in Iraq who awakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it's a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap. Ryan Reynolds stars in this one-man show, which is shot completely inside the coffin. I love minimalistic single-room thrillers that force a bunch of characters to clash, because they seem the hardest to write. Chris Sparling's indie screenplay is a single-room thriller with only one actor. How does that even work? More photos and posters after the jump.

It's out with the old and in with the new as 2009 transitions into 2010 in just a few short hours. There's no question that it's been a fantastic, crazy and occasionally tumultuous year for comic book fans thanks to film releases like "Watchmen" and compelling news stories regarding "Iron Man 2," "Green Lantern" and others.
But all of that is in the past now. It's time to look forward at what we can expect in the new year. There are still many announced comic book movies and television shows that lack official casting, but with some of these projects heading into production in 2010, it's only a matter of time before the secrets are revealed.
While we all have our own favorite franchises and characters, these are the five heroes and villains I'm dying to see cast in 2010.

2009 was another big year for movies thanks to, in varying degrees, the recession, 3D ticket prices and Taylor Lautner’s abs. For funsies we have compiled a fairly trivial movie calendar for the year that was. Here you will find all the big events that, for whatever reason, may not have gotten a lot of media coverage. Hit the jump to begin reminiscing about the past 12 months:
16- Mall cops lose what little public respect they had. (Paul Blart: Mall Cop)
13- The rules of scary movies are upheld. (Friday the 13th)
20- Madea goes to jail. »

Sam Worthington in talks for the “Flash Gordon” movie? Okay, probably not, but one of the gazillion gossip sites out there says they heard things, and since that’s apparently good enough for them, it’s good enough for us. Just remember that if it turns out to be complete and utter bullshit, it’s not our fault. But if it does end up being true, keep in mind that we were on top of it! In any case, according to Hollyscoop, here’s the word on the street — and of course by “street” I mean the coffee shops of L.A.: Sources say Sam is up against the sexy Ryan Reynolds for the leading role in the sci-fi flick. “If he gets the role it would be quite a big deal as Flash is an all-American hero,” dished one Hollywood insider. “Right now it’s between Sam, Ryan Reynolds »
As if his starring roles in Avatar and the upcoming remake Clash of the Titans wasn't enough, Sam Worthington is all set to star in another film -- at least that's what the rumors say. According to HollyScoop, there's word going around that Worthington may be up for the lead role in a Flash Gordon remake. Of course, it might be worth taking this news with a (large) grain of salt. The source that HollyScoop spoke to also said that Worthington is up against Ryan "I'm already playing Deadpool and Green Lantern" Reynolds. “If he gets the role it would be quite a big deal as Flash is an all-American hero,” dished one Hollywood insider. “Right now it’s between Sam, Ryan Reynolds and one or two others for the lead role should the project actually get off the ground.” If you're interested in reading more about the rumors, head over to HollyScoop. »
In the vein of Sam Worthington and Ryan Reynolds, Wanted star James McAvoy is one in-demand actor. Adding to the list of projects he’s attached to – beyond Wanted 2 and I’m with Cancer – we now get word that McAvoy is attached to a biopic of James Bond creator, Ian Fleming.
Pajiba provides us with the story they’ve gotten from their source, The Hollywood Cog. The project, currently being referred to as simply Ian Fleming, is being developed by both Palmstar Entertainment and Animus Films. McAvoy is attached to the lead role, and the film will reportedly focus specifically on the years of Fleming’s life in which he got the inspiration to create the James Bond character.
Fleming’s life is prime material for a biopic: Years before creating Bond, Fleming struggled under the shadow of his family name (his father was a member of parliament, and »

Scarlett Johansson has declared she will be staying in on New Year's Eve. The actress is said she was 'so over' the biggest party and date night of the year. Johansson, however, will be kept company at home by her husband Ryan Reynolds and suggested there will be a touch of romance. She said: 'We're both working on New Year's Day anyway. So we won't do much. You know, pizza would be nice, a little champagne. Maybe watch the Twilight Zone marathon. That's always a favourite for me. Going from one party to the next and surfing to find the right thing, and being in a taxicab when the clock strikes - I'm so over that stuff. »

News on a new Flash Gordon movie has been scarce and we’ve not heard of any official developments since nearly a year and a half ago when Neil Moritz acquired the rights to the film and Breck Eisner was picked to direct. That changes this week as rumors surface of who is being looked at to play the lead role. Hollyscoop is reporting that an insider of theirs informed them that Sam Worthington and Ryan Reynolds are up for the role of Flash against two others.
For those unfamiliar with the classic sci-fi tale, the story of Flash Gordon takes place when our planet is hit with a meteor strike. We find out through the story that these meteors are weapons from the planet Mongo sent by Ming the Merciless, their evil ruler. Flash Gordon and friends make their way to the planet and adventure ensues.

Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds have revealed their plans for New Year’s Eve. Actress Scarlett Johansson says she will be spending New Year’s Eve eating pizza and watching The Twilight Zone with husband Ryan Reynolds. The 25-year-old will see in 2010 with a takeaway, champagne and a marathon viewing session of the cult show because of work commitments. She said: 'We’re both working on New Year’s Day anyway.

Can someone explain to me exactly where the hell Sam Worthington came from? One minute he's as well known as my neighbor who knits sweaters for her cats and the next he is stealing thunder from John Connor in a Terminator sequel and headlining the first James Cameron film in 12 years. The man is certainly the breakthrough action star of 2009 and with that title, of course, he will be the subject of rumor for every action film for the next five years. So what tent pole will Worthington be "attached to" next? HollyScoop, which has a name as reputable as The Sun, has reported that the man is now on a shortlist of actors being looked at to bring back Flash Gordon, the interstellar polo player who fights Ming the Merciless on planet Mongo (Don't you miss the 1930s?) Ryan Reynolds is among the other actors being looked at for »
Scarlett Johansson is hoping to ring in 2010 on the couch at home - because she's "so over" partying on New Year's Eve.
She tells Ok! magazine, "We're both working on New Year's Day anyway. So, we won't do much. You know, pizza would be nice, a little champagne. Maybe watch the Twilight Zone marathon. That's always a favourite for me.
"Going from one party to the next and surfing to find the right thing, and being in a taxicab when the clock strikes - I'm so over that stuff. At the ripe old age of 25.
"I have the most fun when I'm surrounded by people I love in one place that's comfortable and we can hear each other. You can play card games, watch movies - I'm happy." »
Hollywood is currently shut down for the holidays, but that's not stopping a few casting rumors from leaking out. According to Hollyscoop (who are probably just as reliable as the dude who sells dope on the corner near your house), both Sam Worthington and Ryan Reynolds are two of only a handful of actors on the Flash Gordon shortlist. Hollyscoop' source is, of course, one of those shady "Hollywood insiders", though we already know they're gearing up this film for a potential 2012 release, and so I'm sure there's a little bit of truth here, especially since Worthington and Reynolds would be the go-to frontrunners for these types of roles (I wouldn't be surprised if we hear Worthington mentioned for Captain America, too).
"But he's Australian!", you might scream. That's why one insider says it could be a pretty big deal if Worthington lands the part of the All-American Flash Gordon, »

London, Dec 29(Ians) Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson will welcome 2010 with a pizza and champagne because of work commitments.
Femalefirst.co.uk. quoted, Johansson, 25, who is married to actor Ryan Reynolds, as saying: “Both of us are working on New Year’s day. So, we won’t do much. You know pizza would be nice with a nice little champagne.
“Going from one party to the next and surfing to find the right thing and being in a cab when the clock strikes - I am so over that stuff,” she added. »
According to the fine fellas over at Fangoria, principal photography for the as yet un-casted “Captain America” is set to roll in June of 2010. That’s pretty soon. No casting news yet. Will it be Sam Worthington? He’s in everything else. Why not? I’m thinking the good Captain is going to have to be pretty buff so 6 months is going to have to be enough time for someone to get in fighting trim. In other superhero news, the production team is in place for “Green Lantern” starring Ryan Reynolds. These guys are good so I’m hoping the Green won’t be another Wolverine. Thanks /Film for the bullets. Cinematographer Dion Beebe (Memoirs of a Geisha, Chicago, Equilibrium, Collateral) Production designer Grant Major and costume designer Ngila Dickson (Lord of the Rings trilogy) Art director François Audouy (Avatar, I Am Legend, Watchmen, Transformers, the Spider-Man” trilogy) »
Scarlett Johansson will spend New Year's Eve (31.12.09) eating pizza and watching 'The Twilight Zone'. The 25-year-old actress - who is married to actor Ryan Reynolds - will see in 2010 with a take away, champagne and a marathon viewing session of the cult show because of work commitments. She said: "We're both working on New Year's Day (01.01.10) anyway. So, we won't do much. You know, pizza would be nice, a little champagne. Maybe watch the 'Twilight Zone' marathon. That's always a favourite for me." The screen beauty is "over" big celebratory parties and much prefers a quiet night in these days.

Director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) is wasting no time in putting together an A-list crew to help him bring Green Lantern to the big screen. It's a virtual 'who's who' of Oscar talent, from cinematography through to production design.
Dian Beebe, who previously won an Oscar for his work on Memoirs of a Geisha and was nominated for Chicago has signed aboard as cinematographer, while production designer Grant Major and costume designer Ngila Dickson, both of whom won Oscars for their work on Peter Jackson's 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy, have also joined Green Lantern.
Art director Francois Audouy, who previously provided concept art for Avatar and I Am Legend, and worked as art director for Watchmen and the first Transformers, will bring his talents to bear on the DC franchise.
We're still waiting to hear who will be cast in support roles opposite Ryan Reynolds, and indeed, who »
In an interview with The Wolfman director Joe Johnston, Fangoria reports that his next film, The First Avenger: Captain America is set to go in front of cameras in June. That’s not too surprising when you consider the film has a target release date of July 22, 2011. According to Fangoria, Johnston is currently meeting with the art department. I hope they spend an entire day mocking Rob Liefeld’s illustration of Captain America.
SuperHeroHype reports that Green Lantern will have some Oscar-winners in its roster when it comes to the behind-the-camera work. First up, you have cinematographer Dion Beebe (Oscar-winner for Memoirs of a Geisha). Then you got production designer Grant Major and costume designer Ngila Dickson who both won »
