Chloe Grace Moretz to Lead English Voice Cast for 'Princess Kaguya'

15 July 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

As much as I love Studio Ghibli, I'm not the biggest fan of these kind of casting updates. I prefer the original Japanese voice cast with subtitles, but as always it's hard to sell the film here in the Us without dubbed English voices. GKids has unveiled the cast for the English language version of Ghibli's The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, directed by Isao Takahata, his first film in fourteen years. Providing the lead voice will be Chloë Grace Moretz, who is already everywhere and in every movie from Cannes to The Equalizer. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya adapts a classic story about a tiny girl found inside a shining stalk of bamboo. The remainder of the English voice cast for the film includes James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Darren Criss, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges, James Marsden, Oliver Platt and Dean Cain. Gkids has North American distribution rights for the film, »

Denzel Washington Talks Fleshing Out His Character, Reuniting with Antoine Fuqua, Filming in Boston, and More on the Set of The Equalizer

17 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last August, when director Antoine Fuqua was filming The Equalizer outside of Boston, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters.  Adapted from the 1980s TV series of the same name, the pic reteams Denzel Washington with his Training Day director as he plays a former black ops commando who comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz).  Soon thereafter, things go south and he finds himself squaring off against violent Russian gangsters.  The film also stars Melissa Leo, Martin Csokas, Haley BennettDavid Harbour, and Bill Pullman.  I learned a lot about the movie on the set visit and walked away thinking the film could turn out great, especially with Washington playing an ass-kicking hero defending folks that need help.  When Sony test screened the movie, the pic scored huge numbers and they're already prepping a sequel, which doesn't surprise me at all. »
