Fans of writer Matthew F. Jones have a lot to celebrate. His novel “A Single Shot” is about to be turned into a big screen thriller, and the names attached are enough to make even the most hardened film cynic squeal with glee. Deadline Charlottesville reports that production has now begun on the adaptation, which is under the direction of David M. Rosenthal (Janie Jones) and stars a cast that includes names like Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, Joe Anderson, Jason Isaacs, Kelly Riley, Ophelia Lovibond, and Melissa Leo. Jeez, Mr. Rosenthal, you had me at Sam Rockwell. But for those not sold just at the sight of all those talented names listed together, take a look at the Amazon plot synopsis of Jones’s novel: “John Moon lives alone in a trailer on the land that was his family’s farm until the bank foreclosed on it years ago (for reasons he has never »

Ophelia Lovibond, Melissa Leo & More Round Out Cast For 'A Single Shot' Starring Sam Rockwell

30 March 2012 12:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's been a long, strange trip for "A Single Shot." Seemingly stuck in development hell, the project had an array of names circling over the past couple of years -- Michael Fassbender, Alessandro Nivola, Emily Mortimer, Terrence Howard, Juliette Lewis, James Badge Dale, Juno Temple, Leslie Mann, Thomas Haden Church -- but began finally firming things up this week. Sam Rockwell, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs and William H. Macy (who has been attached through various incarnations) were confirmed, and now we know the rest of the folks joining them.

Deadline reveal that Brit actress Ophelia Lovibond ("No Strings Attached," "London Boulevard") and Melissa Leo round out the cast along with Joe Anderson and Kelly Reilly. No exact word yet on their parts, but with cameras now rolling on the pic, we guess we'll find out soon enough. Based on the book by Matthew F. Jones, the story follows Rockwell's John Moon, »

Emily Browning Joins Dominic Cooper, Dan Stevens in Summer

13 January 2012 12:44 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

The good news is that Aussie thesp Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) is replacing Ophelia Lovibond in the cast of Summer in February. It’s not that I have something against Lovibond, it’s because Browning generally becomes a last-minute addition to the cast — she was cast as Baby Doll in Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, as a [...]

Daniele Watts ‘Unchained’ for Tarantino; Emily Browning to Lead ‘Summer in February’; Shirley MacLaine Circles ‘Walter Mitty’

13 January 2012 11:40 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Quentin Tarantino is this close to rolling cameras on my most anticipated film of 2012, Django Unchained, but there are still a few roles to lock into place. One of these, it seems, is Coco; I haven’t read the script and, thus, can’t figure out who that is or how she affects the story, but ThePlaylist reports that she’ll be played by Daniéle Watts. If that name rings no bells, fret not — most of her work has been in single episodes of TV shows or smaller films, making Django her biggest part to date. Certainly not a bad career move on her part.

The main cast is filled out by Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Sacha Baron Cohen. Django Unchained will open on December 25th.

The next casting concerns Sucker Punch and Sleeping Beauty actress Emily Browning, who, according to ScreenDaily, »

Emily Browning Will Spend 'Summer In February' Instead Of Ophelia Lovibond

13 January 2012 7:24 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Emily Browning is coming off an interesting, if not exactly successful 2011. She had the unfortunate task of leading Zack Snyder's teenage boy wet dream "Sucker Punch," a film whose failures landed squarely on the director, but didn't do much favors to the cast who were ultimately wasted in the endeavor. She then headed to Cannes to walk the red carpet for the provocative "Sleeping Beauty," a challenging, cold, hermetic film that despite its supporters didn't become an arthouse hit. And while she did audition for "Hunger Games," and lined up a part in the upcoming Michael Cera thriller "Magic Magic" she's kicking of 2012 will something a bit more low key. Just a barely a month after it was first announced, "Summer In February" is making a casting switch up as it heads into production. Screen Daily report that Browning has replaced Ophelia Lovibond on the project, co-starring Dominic Cooper, »

Noel Clarke Joins Star Trek 2

4 January 2012 11:32 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Star Trek 2 has gained another new addition to its cast with British actor-writer-director Noel Clarke (Doctor Who) coming on board.  According to Variety, "While the details of Clarke's role are being kept under wraps, he will play a family man with a wife and young daughter."  Clarke joins other newcomers Alice Eve and Peter Weller.  We heard back in December that casting of the film's villain (who will likely be Khan) was imminent, but there's still no word on who has the role. Edgar Ramirez was previously reported as the frontrunner after Benicio Del Toro passed on the part. In addition to his recurring role on Doctor Who, Clarke wrote and co-starred in Kidulthood and the sequel Adulthood, which he also directed.  He also wrote, starred, and co-directed the crime drama 4.3.2.1 co-starring Emma Roberts and Ophelia Lovibond.  I haven't seen any of Clarke's previous work but I'll be sure »
