Quentin Tarantino Adds Evan Parke To Django Unchained Cast

11 February 2012 12:47 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Evan Parke, an actor with a handful of television credits on his resume (most notably a recent stint on the daytime soap The Young and the Restless), just locked up a part in a major motion picture that.s due in theaters this Christmas. Parke landed a role in Quentin Tarantino.s Django Unchained, according to Deadline. Who will he play? No idea. By this point, I thought Tarantino had locked up his major casting decisions, with Jamie Foxx in line to play Django, a freed slave having to fight to get his wife (Kerry Washington) out of shackles; Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin Candie, a sadistic ranch owner who makes captive men fight to the death on his property, and supporting (though still significant) parts for Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Christoph Waltz, Anthony Lapaglia, Sacha Baron Cohen, Don Johnson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Man, that.s an extensive cast. I »

The Evil Dead Remake Adds Lou Taylor Pucci; Evan Parke Joins Django Unchained

11 February 2012 12:31 PM, PST | | See recent news »

There has been a bit of revolving casting going on with The Evil Dead remake as Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror) was set to star and then left the project. But it looks like the leads are set now with Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood) and Jane Levy (Suburgatory) in place. Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) is now in talks to join the project, a reimagining of Sam Raimi’s 1981 original that follows a group of teens who unleash a horde of demons through their discovery of the Book of the Dead. Pucci is expected to play Eric, an overly curious intellectual type who stirs up most of the trouble. Hit the jump for more on The Evil Dead, as well as a casting addition to Django Unchained. Variety reported that Pucci is in talks to join the Fede Alvarez-directed remake. Alvarez co-wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues and revisions by Diablo Cody. »

Michael C. Hall, Ben Foster, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Kyra Sedgwick Board ‘Kill Your Darlings’; Evan Parke Joins ‘Django Unchained’

11 February 2012 11:39 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There’s a whole flurry of casting and distribution news hitting us from Berlinale, but this is one of the few I’d deem wholly interesting. According to Deadline, Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Kyra Sedgwick will co-star in Kill Your Darlings, a beat scene period piece from director John Krokidas and co-writer Austin Bunn that focuses on the inter-relationships between Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Jack Houston), and David Carr (Dane DeHaan). Elizabeth Olsen is also signed to play Edie Parker, Kerouac’s then-girlfriend, and Ben Foster is now on board to portray William S. Burroughs.

Lying at the heart of this story is a true-life thriller, in which Carr murdered his friend, David Kammerer, who he claims made unsolicited sexual advances toward him. Although Deadline hasn’t heard who’s playing who among this recent crop of additions, I find it pretty difficult to believe »
