Ewan McGregor tells Details the Trainspotting sequel "might happen" and doesn't speak to highly of Star Wars crazies saying: I don't have any experience with them. I've never been to one of the conventions. The people I meet are the f**kers who want me to sign Star Wars photos so they can sell them on the Internet or the people at premieres who are crushing children against barriers to get me to sign their f**king picture of Obi-Wan Kenobi. They're not fans -- they're parasitical lowlifes and f**king wankers. The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have signed on to write The Lego Movie 2, though no word on whether they'll return to direct the sequel which is set for a May 25, 2018 release date.

Will True Detective ever cast a female character who's not a long-suffering wife, a prostitute, or a victim of unspeakable sexual horror? Maybe, but not this week: Deadline reports that four new recurring characters are close to joining the cast, including Mad Men's Abigail Spencer as "Alicia, the survivor of a sexual attack," and The Hunger Games' Leven Rambin as "Sophia, a beauty with a history of drug problems." More encouraging is the addition of Sherlock's Kelly Reilly, playing a character only described as "self-possessed." We'll take it! »

Cable channel HBO has had a history of critically and commercially acclaimed shows, from The Sopranos to Game of Thrones. Adding to their ranks this past television season was the channel’s newest offering, True Detective. With Cary Fukunaga and Nic Pizzolatto respectively directing and writing each episode, fans of the show were intrigued to see what shape the show would take in season two, with leads Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as well as Fukunaga, following through on their promise to exit the show after its first season. With Justin Lin stepping into the director’s chair for the first two episodes of the new season, the show’s casting began to take shape a while ago, with Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, and the recently confirmed Taylor Kitsch all set to play key roles. Now the show has added a number of other performers to its roster.

The second season of HBO’s True Detective has already locked in its male leads, and now Deadline reports that four new names have entered negotiations. With a Friday table read – wherein the cast read through the script – in place, it makes sense for news to leak of who’ll exactly be involved. Currently finalizing a deal to secure a regular role is Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes, Eden Lake), with Abigail Spencer (This Is Where I Leave You), Leven Ramblin (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Michael Irby (Almost Human) in the running for supporting parts.
Reilly and Spencer have been previously linked to the Nic Pizzolatto-created show, back when a preliminary list of actresses made its way online. Still ironing out the creases in her contract, Reilly is slated to play “the self-possessed Morgan.” While the character descriptions are still unconfirmed at this stage, it’s still exciting »

Mostly known for telling tales about magical museums, a family with twelve kids, or fighting robots, director Shawn Levy changes the pace with comedy drama This is Where I Leave You, bringing together an impressive ensemble cast for a movie that sadly doesn't know what to do with them. Jason Bateman plays Judd Altman, who after finding out his wife Quinn (Abigail Spencer) has been cheating him, is informed that his father has died. The Altman's, siblings Tina Fey, Adam Driver, and Corey Stoll and mother Jane Fonda, descend on the family home for a week of mourning where old secrets are aired and tensions threaten to reach a breaking point. With such a fantastic array of actors present, the most annoying problem with This is Where I Leave You is that most of it's time is focused on Bateman's Tripp navigating his feelings for childhood friend Penny (Rose Byrne »
