Alison Brie and Imogen Poots Up for Female Lead in Captain America: The Winter Soldier

With Anthony Mackie already locked down for the key role of Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel is now looking to fill out some additional supporting roles in the upcoming sequel. In particular, they are in search of a female lead for the movie, most likely to play a new love interest for Steve Rogers. Deadline reports that directors Joe and Anthony Russo have narrowed their choices down to a shortlist of five young actresses, many of which primarily have TV experience on their resumes. However, this character may not be the only prominent female role in the film: word on the street is that Scarlett Johannson will also make an appearance as Black Widow. Hit the jump to see who's on the shortlist. Although it's not yet clear what role these actresses are vying for, many believe that it will be Sharon Carter, the niece of Peggy Carter

Robert Altman And Dennis Hopper To Become Subjects Of New Documentaries

With a career that dates back in the 1950s, Robert Altman started out making industrials and working in television before switching to features in 1970 with "Mash," a film that kicked off a decade where the director flirted with perfection, with classics like "McCabe & Mrs. Miller," "The Long Goodbye," and "Nashville." The 1980's wouldn't be as kind after Altman started the decade with the musical "Popeye," but he would eventually bounce back commercially with 1992's "The Player" and 1993's "Short Cuts" before receiving his fifth Academy Award nomination for directing with 2001's "Gosford Park." The director's career career ended with Altman's death in 2006, and documentarian Ron Mann ("Comic Book Confidential") is planning to examine his career in the upcoming Epix Original Documentary "Altman."

"Altman defined cinema for me — he had an extraordinarily rollicking career," Mann told Variety. The Canadian director is planning to start shooting the doc in the fall, but

The Stephen Frears-directed “Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight” has had no shortage of casting updates since things got underway back in February, with future “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” star Benjamin Walker joining the fold as Kevin Kennedy, a Supreme Court clerk who supported Ali and even wrote briefs that would help to maintain the boxer's status as a conscientious objector of the war, all in this tale of Ali’s trial following his arrest for anti-Vietnam sentiments and behaviour when drafted to serve in the war.

Well now Deadline has the word on a new onslaught of impressive performers, with Danny Glover, Barry Levinson, Pablo Schreiber, Ed Begley Jr., Bob Balaban and Kathleen Chalfant jumping in the ring with the self-proclaimed world’s greatest.

How ‘Death Of A Salesman’ Success And ‘Hunger Games’ Show Good Material Matched With Execution Still Wins The Day

How ‘Death Of A Salesman’ Success And ‘Hunger Games’ Show Good Material Matched With Execution Still Wins The Day
The Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s Death Of A Salesman came out of the gate and broke the house record for the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. It needed only seven performances in that first week to post a $780,000 gross. The star cast certainly helps–Mike Nichols directing Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amazing-Spiderman star Andrew Garfield and Linda Emond–but it’s a becoming a word of mouth hit and is a hot ticket until its limited run ends June 2, that will most certainly sell out long before that. It shows what can happen when storied subject matter is handled skilfully with experienced directors and strong producers, which to me is the neat thing about the staggering weekend gross of The Hunger Games. Having read that book while Deadline was revealing the construction of that movie from the hiring of Gary Ross as director to the film’s casting, I was intrigued

New cast additions for Alfred Hitchcock And The Making of Psycho

Sacha Gervasi's upcoming film, Alfred Hitchcock And The Making Of Psycho, adds five new faces to the cast...

Sacha Gervasi, who helmed the excellent Anvil! The Story of Anvil, is set to direct Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psychom which will focus on Hitchcock at the top of his game, setting out to make a horror film that no studio would touch. Of course, the end result is regarded as not just one of the finest films of its genre but one of the most significant films of all time, so it will be interesting to see how the story of its making will be portrayed on screen.

The film is scripted by John McLaughlin (Black Swan), based on the non-fiction book by Stephen Rebell, and already features a star-studded cast that includes Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock, Helen Mirren as Alma Reville, the filmmaker's wife, James D’Arcy

Oscars Skip Live Best Song Performances, Muppets In Mourning

Oscars Skip Live Best Song Performances, Muppets In Mourning
Did you know "This Means War" could have had two different endings? Turns out McG toyed with the idea at one point.

McG Considered Alternate "This Means War" Endings

Should Reese Witherspoon choose Tom Hardy or Chris Pine at the end of "This Means War"? Turns out there was once a potential reality where she wouldn't have had to make that decision. Movieline reports that, during a press day for the flick, director McG admitted that he almost released two different endings with Witherspoon choosing a different guy. We'd opt for option three, where the two men end up with one another. In other "War" news,

Daily Briefing. New Film Quarterly

  • MUBI
The new Film Quarterly is out and, of the four pieces online, the standout for me is Caetlin Benson-Allott's: "Since Marey's motion studies at the end of the 19th century, film has been a tool for providing visible evidence, a record of things seen. The development of digital imaging technology over the past twenty years has transformed that original empirical function. Advancements in CGI enable convincing depictions of things impossible to see in everyday life: dinosaurs, hobbits, viruses. It has become necessary to speak of 'hypervisibility' to describe the way movies can realistically render such previously hard-to-envision phenomena. Steven Soderbergh's Contagion tries to contest this prevailing logic by insisting on the limits of visibility."

Also: Editor Rob White talks with Göran Hugo Olsson about The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975, Joshua Clover on Contagion, Justin Lin's Fast Five and Rupert Wyatt's Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Warner Bros. Bringing Lew Archer To Screen With The Galton Case

You gotta love a good detective story. Hollywood certainly does, and over the years some of the best fictional detectives have made their way onto TV and movie screens, played by actors ranging from Humphrey Bogart to James Garner. We've seen Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe, and the troubled, broken men of James Ellroy's worlds. One classic gumshoe of the printed page who hasn't gotten his due in a while is Ross Macdonald's Lew Archer, star of over a dozen novels, including The Drowning Pool and The Way Some People Die. Now Deadline reports that Archer will be returning to the big screen in The Galton Case, courtesy of Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver. Lew Archer is an old-school Southern Californian private dick in the vein of Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade. The Galton Case is actually the eighth book in the Archer series,

Morning Meme: Chris Colfer Hated "Candles," Teddy's "90210" Wedding, and "Arrested Development" Returns To Screens Big and Small

Chris Colfer appeared at the New Yorker Festival on Saturday, and the report is fairly exciting. He all but confirmed the spoiler about episode five. He said he and Blaine were like Lucy and Ricky (Kurt is Lucy). He admitted he didn't like singing "Candles" on the show. When asked about what Broadway roles he'd love to play, he said "I haven't written them yet." The whole article is great, and the video is cute.

Dolphin Tale ruled the weekend box office, edging out Moneyball for the crown. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 50/50 debuted at 4th with $9 million, though the blame for that one seems to be landing on writer/costar Seth Rogen.

Justin Timberlake to star in 'Spinning Gold' music industry biopic
Remember when Justin Timberlake was a musician?

The pop-star-turned-actor's music career might seem like a far-off memory, but an upcoming project might form a nice bridge between Timberlake past and present.

According to Deadline, Timberlake has agreed to star in a biopic about '70s record producer Neil Bogart, who launched the careers of Kiss and disco icons Parliament, Donna Summer, and The Village People, among others on his Casablanca Records label. Titled "Spinning Gold," the project will also mark Timberlake's debut as a movie producer.

The film is written by Bogart's son, writer/producer Tim Bogart, and will chronicle the record producer's path from poor Brooklyn kid to multimillionaire music mogul. Bogart was 39 when he died of cancer in 1982, so Timberlake seems age-appropriate for the role.

"We needed an young actor who can carry this picture," said Tim Bogart of casting Timberlake as a younger version of his father.

The label was known by many as a disco and funk house, thanks to artists like Donna Summer, The Village People, and Parliament.

(Living up to the label's disco image, one of the Kiss records released by Casablanca was Dynasty, with the band's disco hit single 'I Was Made For Lovin' You.'
