Alicia Vikander in Talks for 'Assassin's Creed' and New 'Bourne' Film

25 May 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Alicia Vikander has been rising the ranks, and I think we should all be grateful for that. From A Royal Affair and Anna Karenina to this year's terrific Ex Machina, she is easily one of those people who I will see whatever she is in. Well, it looks like she is entering the big-budget blockbuster mode with a couple of projects. And why wouldn't shec I want those checks too. She is in talks to join the Michael Fassbender-led adaptation of the popular video game Assassin's Creed and Matt Damon/Paul Greengrass's return to the Bourne franchise. Double-dipping. Good on ya, Alicia (we are on a first-name basis, Fyi). These being added to her schedule will most likely have her drop out of The Circle, starring Tom Hanks and to be directed by James Ponsoldt. That is disappointing because I really enjoy Ponsoldt's work, especially The Spectacular Now »

Ex Machina's Alicia Vikander in talks for Assassin's Creed and new Bourne film

24 May 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander could soon be adding two more hotly-anticipated projects to her list of starring roles.

The Swedish actress is in negotiations to star in both the film adaptation of the Ubisoft video game Assassin's Creed, as well as the forthcoming fifth Bourne film, Deadline reports.

As a result of the actress's new projects, it seems likely that Vikander will drop out of Tom Hanks-vehicle The Circle, with Emma Watson allegedly being lined up as a replacement.

In addition to Ex Machina, Vikander has previously appeared in A Royal Affair and Anna Karenina and will also star in the upcoming film The Man from Uncle alongside Henry Cavill.

Michael Fassbender previously confirmed that filming for the forthcoming Assassin's Creed movie is due to begin in September.

The actor, who is expected to both star in and produce the film, added that trying to develop the right »

Assassin’S Creed and Next Bourne Movie May Add Ex MacHina’s Alicia Vikander

23 May 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

In case you haven’t noticed, Alicia Vikander is everywhere right now. Seventh Son and Ex Machina already hit theaters this year, she’s still got Testament of Youth, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Danish Girl on the way, and she's busy lining up new projects as well. Vikander recently became part of one of the hottest packages at Cannes, but a couple of new opportunities just popped up that might force her to drop out of it. Deadline is reporting that she’s currently in talks to star in Assassin’s Creed and the new Bourne movie, projects that would certainly conflict with James Ponsoldt’s book-to-film adaptation of The Circle starring Tom Hanks. Vikander’s involvement was only announced a few weeks back, but Deadline suggests that she will exit that project. In fact, the outlet has heard that Im Global head Stuart Ford already made an »

Alicia Vikander To Join "Creed," Next "Bourne"

23 May 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Ex Machina" star Alicia Vikander continues to be one of the most in-demand actresses out there with the acclaimed Swedish actress now being linked to two major blockbusters in the works.

Deadline reports that Vikander is in talks for the likely female lead roles in both the upcoming return of Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon to the Jason Bourne franchise, and in "Macbeth" director Justin Kurzel's film adaptation of the popular Ubisoft video game series "Assassin's Creed".

The news comes as Vikander has been attached to the James Ponsoldt-directed, Tom Hanks-led "The Circle" which has been shopped around at Cannes. Because of the scheduling in relation to 'Bourne' and 'Creed', Vikander is likely to drop off "The Circle" with "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson already being courted to replace her.

Vikander has "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," "Adam Jones" and "The Danish Girl" slated to open this year, »

Reese Witherspoon will play Tinker Bell in Disney's new live-action movie Tink

22 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In what may be one of Disney's best-matched castings to date, Reese Witherspoon is to play Tinker Bell in a new film.

Tink, which will focus on the story of Peter Pan's fairy companion, is the latest classic from the animation studio to be given the live-action treatment.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Witherspoon will also produce the feature alongside Bruna Papandrea, her partner at production banner Pacific Standard.

Finding Dory writer Victoria Strouse is currently penning the script, but as yet there is no director attached to the project.

The movie is thought to be following in the footsteps of Disney's Sleeping Beauty spin-off Maleficent in that it will portray the untold story of the lead character.

The studio is currently producing a live-action Beauty and the Beast (starring Emma Watson) and is also developing similar adaptations of classics Dumbo, Pinocchio and Winnie the Pooh.

Julianne Moore and Variety’s Steven Gaydos were on hand to honor rising stars Jack O’Connell (“Unbroken”) and Lola Kirke (“Gone Girl”) at the elegant Chopard Trophy ceremony that took place on the rooftop of the Martinez Hotel on Friday night.

“When you start out all you know is that you want to do it, it feels good to do it and you would do it for free but what you don’t know if you’re any good. But when you see a good actor, you can see it right away. And we saw Jack O’Connell and Lola Kirke immediately the minute they burst onto the screen, they’re beautifully alive on camera, it’s palpable their talent,” said Moore. “We’re so happy to have you, we’re excited to see your work and we know we’re going to see your work for many years to come, »

Forget Twilight, isn't it about time we started taking Kristen Stewart seriously?

10 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Since her rapid ascent to fame as The Twilight Saga's leading lady, Kristen Stewart has had something of a rough time when it comes to her professional and public life. It's bad enough having the latter combed over in fine detail, but when your talent is called into question, that must sting all the more.

But here's the thing about Kristen Stewart. She isn't a bad actress in the slightest. In fact, right now she's on the kind of under-the-radar hot streak that suggests she's destined for real career longevity. Twilight, now receding into the cultural distance, was never the finest example of a franchise that fostered great acting work, and Stewart suffered as audiences naturally connected her with sullen on-screen alter-ego Bella Swan.

Over the last 18 months Stewart's big screen work has seen her take on a trio of diverse roles that have smartly distanced her from anything vampire-related. »

Time Machine: Remember K Stewart's 'Dirty Dancing'? Fabricated Lois Lane Rumors?

Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' dancing, with Garrett Hedlund on the right Down memory lane: Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' images At the time best known as The Twilight Saga's conflicted human Bella Swan, Kristen Stewart was cast as the exuberant Marylou in Walter Salles' film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's iconic 1950s novel On the Road. Salles had been impressed with Stewart's pre-Twilight work in Sean Penn's Into the Wild. Based on LuAnne Henderson, Kerouac's close buddy Neal Cassady's first wife, Marylou is described as a "beautiful little sharp chick." Apparently, one who also likes to move seductively to the sound of music – as can be attested by the Kristen Stewart picture above, which first came out online in early 2011. Besides Stewart, On the Road also features Garrett Hedlund – at the time best known for Tron: Legacy – as Dean Moriarty, »

Top 10 Baby Names 2014: Does Emma Watson Deserve Credit for This?

8 May 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Charlotte may be the new princess, but Emma is the new queen.

"Emma" reclaimed the throne as the No. 1 baby name for girls in 2014, the Social Security Administration announced today. Emma had not been on top since 2008, so what boosted her popularity? Vanity Fair wondered if perhaps Emma Stone or Emma Watson were responsible. We tend to credit the Hermione/Belle actress with everything, because one should, so we'll put the win in her column. (Sorry, Stone.)

Sophia had been the top girls name from 2011-2013, dethroning Isabella, which had a two-year run from 2009-2010. Emily dominated from 1996-2007 until Emma returned just for 2008. Check out the full stats from 1915-2014. No idea why this is fascinating but, admit it, it is.

The boys have a less interesting story, since Noah defended his spot as the No. 1 name, holding strong after more than a decade of Jacob dominance. The top »

Cannes: Sergio Castellitto’s ‘You Can’t Save Yourself Alone’ Leads Beta Cinema Cannes Slate

4 May 2015 5:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Italian actor-director Sergio Castellitto’s romantic drama “You Can’t Save Yourself Alone,” toplining Italo A-listers Riccardo Scamarcio and Jasmine Trinca as a divorced couple reflecting on their rapport gone wrong over dinner, will lead German sales company Beta Cinema’s lineup at the upcoming Marche du Film in Cannes.

Based on an Italian bestseller by Margaret Mazzantini, who is Castellitto’s wife, Castellitto’s latest follows previous dramas, “Don’t Move” and “Twice Born,” both starring Penelope Cruz and also based on Mazzantini novels.

Produced by Italy’s Wildside and Indiana shingles in collaboration with Rai Cinema, “Can’t Save Yourself” has performed well at the Italian box office, where it has pulled almost $4 million via Universal since its March release during a tough time faced by Italian movies with their home audience.

2015 Summer Movie Preview: 20 Most Anticipated Movies

29 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The May 1 release of Avengers: Age of Ultron marks the "official" start of the 2015 Summer Movie Season and with that in mind, it's only appropriate to offer up a look forward at what's ahead over the next four months. What is ahead over the next four monthsc Well, a lot of movies that cost a lot of money with a few smaller features mixed in for good measure, and as much as some of us may lament the fact studios have become so franchise focused, it's hard not to admit a desire to see some of these bigger features. As a means of whittling down the flock of films arriving over the next several months I've chosen to take a look at my 20 most anticipated, which does mean there are bound to be some titles I probably ought to mention, but didn't make the list for a variety of reasons. »
