Jane Goldman writing Pinocchio for Robert Downey Jr. and Tim Burton

16 November 2012 6:47 AM, PST

Jane Goldman has been hired to rework the script for Pinocchio, which has Tim Burton attached to direct and Robert Downey Jr. set to topline as Geppetto. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Goldman will work on a new draft of the screenplay, following an initial effort by Pushing Daisies writer Bryan Fuller.

This take on the classic story by Carlo Collodi...

Bilbo Baggins takes centre stage in new Hobbit TV spot: watch now

16 November 2012 4:56 AM, PST

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has unleashed another TV spot, and this time the focus is squarely on Martin Freeman’s Bilbo. Given that the promo is barely half a minute long, it’s surprising that it manages to cram in plenty of previously unseen footage. It further illustrates the tension between Bilbo and the Company of Dwarves, and the former’s ongoing discomfort at having been wrenched from his cosy home to go out adventuring. And, as if you needed any more evidence, it’s clear that Martin Freeman has Bilbo...

First clip from Texas Chainsaw 3D: watch now

16 November 2012 2:35 AM, PST

Texas Chainsaw 3D has revealed a first official clip online, in which Leatherface returns to our screens in time-honoured fashion… by running jerkily and waving his chainsaw around. The new clip sees our favourite cannibal chasing a hapless couple into a secluded barn, throwing his chainsaw about like there’s no tomorrow. Sensibly, the pair reach for a nearby shotgun, but it’ll take more than mere shells to put Leatherface down, and it isn’t long before he makes his presence felt in spectacular fashion. Take a look,...

Rumour: Disney planning 2-3 Star Wars films every year?

16 November 2012 2:19 AM, PST

As if the news that there is to be a new Star Wars trilogy wasn’t seismic enough, rumours are now circling that Disney plans to follow-up Episode VII with two or three Star Wars films every year! An upcoming interview with Entertainment Weekly apparently has Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirming that the studio plans to turn out several movies per year, in order to explore the Star Wars universe to the full. The thinking is that Disney would like to establish a wider-reaching universe, a la The Avengers, in which a variety of...

Hitch battles the studios in new clip from Hitchcock: watch now

16 November 2012 1:55 AM, PST

Hitchcock has released another new clip online, in which the master of suspense weighs up how to bring Psycho to the masses, without the backing of a major studio. The scene shows Hitch (Anthony Hopkins) settling on a potentially ruinous plan to finance the movie himself, prompting his wife Alma (Helen Mirren) to question why this particular film means so much to him. His answer is heartfelt, eloquent, and gives a real sense of the joy Hitchcock took in bringing his audience something they hadn’t seen before. Take a look,...

Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs movie will be filmed as three 30-minute scenes

16 November 2012 1:31 AM, PST

Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has revealed that his Steve Jobs biopic will employ a rather unusual narrative structure, with the film being made up of just three scenes. According to the Daily Beast, the film will pick up with Jobs at three separate product launches, thought to be the Mac, the NeXT and the iPod. “Each of the three 30 minute scenes in the Steve Jobs movie will take place backstage before a product launch,” confirmed Sorkin. “That's the movie.” Each of those scenes will also be shot in real time, as Jobs...

Paul Rudd and Tina Fey star in first trailer for Admission: watch now

16 November 2012 1:25 AM, PST

The first trailer has arrived for campus-set dramedy Admission, in which Tina Fey’s admissions officer finds her life turned upside down by the arrival of one particular pupil. A recruiting visit to a nearby high school (run by her old college pal Paul Rudd) brings her into contact with a teen prodigy, and a bit of digging soon suggests that he might be her long lost son… While a film headed up by Fey and Rudd might look like a straight comedy, this seems like a far more contemplative affair, with both leads getting the...

Michael Bay screen-testing actresses for Transformers 4

15 November 2012 2:18 AM, PST

Now that he’s cast Mark Wahlberg as his leading man, Michael Bay is free to get down to what we'd guess is his favourite part of casting a Transformers movie: finding a gorgeous young starlet for his camera to linger over. The story is set to focus upon Wahlberg’s character and his daughter, and it’s the daughter role that is currently being cast. Isabelle Cornish (sister of Abbie, pictured) is one name on the shortlist, alongside Nicola Peltz, Gabriella Wilde and Margaret Quallay, daughter of Andie MacDowell. Apparently...

Quentin Tarantino talks about casting the lead in Django Unchained

15 November 2012 2:06 AM, PST

Quentin Tarantino has given an interview with Playboy in which he talks extensively about Django Unchained, particularly focusing upon the casting process which saw various big names attached to the project. Will Smith was famously Tarantino’s first choice for the part of Django, but after consideration, the pair realised that the role wasn’t a perfect fit. “We spent quite a few hours together over a weekend when he was in New York doing Men in Black III,” says Qt. “I think half the process was an excuse for us...

15 November 2012 1:32 AM, PST

The forthcoming adaptation of Ubisoft’s popular videogame Splinter Cell has moved closer to its first piece of casting, with Tom Hardy in talks to play the leading role.

At present, Ubisoft has yet to find a studio with which to work, although the developer has held discussions with both Warner Bros and Paramount. Ubisoft Motion Pictures CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet...

Scarlett Johansson stars in new Hitchcock clip: watch now

14 November 2012 2:33 PM, PST

A new clip has been released online from Sacha Gervasi’s biopic, Hitchcock, in which the great director (Anthony Hopkins) tells Janet Leigh (Scarlett Johansson) how he plans to film the famous shower scene. The clip shows Leigh expressing her concerns over the nudity and violent content of the sequence, only for Hitch to assure her that it will all be done in the best possible taste. That said, he does admit that there will be a certain amount of titillation inherent in such a scene, much to the knowing consternation of his wife, Alma...

Morgan Spurlock will direct the 3D documentary about boy band phenomenon, One Direction.

Oz: The Great And Powerful full-length trailer: watch now

14 November 2012 6:02 AM, PST

Oz: The Great And Powerful has released a full-length trailer, and you can see it right here. Where the teaser trailer opened on a black-and-white Kansas before barrelling into a an explosion of imagery (some familiar to Wizard Of Oz fans, some not so familiar), the full-length promo gives a much rounder sense of the plot. Which is? Well, in director Sam Raimi's Woz prequel, James Franco’s Oscar Diggs is a small-time magician who seizes his chance to make it big after he balloons into the Land of Oz (via a tornado). There, the...

Oz: The Great And Powerful gets a giant triptych poster

14 November 2012 3:27 AM, PST

[Click on the poster to see it in hi-res] Oz: The Great And Powerful has released a giant triptych poster that’s flanked by two previously released one-sheets. It’s ginormous, and bears more than a little resemblance to a similar Alice In Wonderland banner (a film which Disney is no doubt hoping to emulate in the box-office stakes). The chief addition to this new poster is the central foursome, with James Franco’s Oscar Diggs flanked by three witches: Mila Kunis’ Theodora, Rachel Weisz’s Evanora, and Michelle...
