Right now audiences can see Chris Pine back in space for Star Trek Into Darkness, and his action thriller Jack Ryan arrives this Christmas, but his next project will be a little more low key. Variety has word that Pine is set to star in an indie called Z for Zachariah, which will also feature Amanda Seyfried and Chiwetel Ejiofor. What makes this project truly interesting is Craig Zobel is directing the film after making a splash at Sundance last year with his film Compliance. Based on Robert O'Brien's book of the same name, the setting finds a girl isolated in the wake of a nuclear war that took everyone in her life away. But one day, in a deep valley that somehow still has breathable air, two strangers emerge from the forest, but she might have been better off being alone. The script comes from new writer Nissar Modi »

What is Casting Couch? It’s the news column that’s got its ear to the ground, listening for any juicy tidbits coming out of Cannes. Today people like Uma Thurman, Seann William Scott, Amanda Seyfried, and Bruce Willis all got new jobs. Zach Braff hasn’t yet had much of a career as a film director, but if there’s one thing he’s got more experience shooting than most people, it’s tiny girls wearing giant headphones. So chances are Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick will be a perfect fit for the cast of his new movie, Wish I Was Here. The Wrap is reporting that she’s just joined the film in the role of Janine, a chick who’s into cosplay and who the Josh Gad character becomes enamored with. However you feel about the controversy surrounding Braff’s Kickstarter funding of this film, you have to admit, added »

Post-apocalyptic movies and movies about young adults are both bombarding audiences these days, and when you combine the two you can get mega-hits like The Hunger Games (or lesser hits like The Host). Now Compliance director Craig Zobel is getting in on the genre, adapting the beloved young adult sci-fi novel Z for Zachariah, and its newly signed cast would make us pay attention to the project even if we were actually living through the apocalypse ourselves. Chris Pine, Amanda Seyfried and Chiwetel Ejiofor will all star in Z for Zachariah, according to The Hollywood Reporter. At one point Tobey Maguire was set to star, but he.ll just be taking on a producer role for now, through his Material Pictures production company. Everyone can now take a deep breath and remember that this is a children.s book. And while nothing at all is wrong with the source material »
Based on Robert C O'Brien's 1974 novel, the science fiction thriller follows a young woman who believes she is the sole survivor of a nuclear war, only to discover a scientist who has also survived.
Seyfried will play the lead character, Ann, with Ejiofor in the role of scientist Loomis, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Pine is reportedly playing a third survivor, whose appearance "complicates matters" between Ann and Loomis, although no such character exists in O'Brien's novel.
It was announced last year that Tobey Maguire would play the role of Loomis, and it is not clear at what stage he was replaced by Ejiofor.
Cate Blanchett (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) is playing the lead role in Blackbird, a present-day take on the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Blanchett’s character, Janet, discovers that her grandfather – a Hollywood visual effects artist who also worked for the U.S. government – had been keeping secrets about the president’s death. Traveling to Los Angeles after his death, she embarks on a twisting, turning journey to discover the truth. David Mamet wrote the script for the thriller. [Variety Exclusive]
