Another Cinderella Movie?: The Best Twists On The Tale

28 November 2012 2:11 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

By Hannah Soo Park

We've got our eye on another fairytale remake, with today's news that Cate Blanchett may be lending her signature ice-cold gaze to the part of Cinderella's evil stepmother in Disney's upcoming untitled project. According to The Wrap, the "Hobbit" star is the first in talks to join Mark Romanek's live-action rendition on the classic tale.

Before you roll your eyes at the thought of yet another take on happily ever after, consider the plot, which follows a doomed politically arranged marriage plot involving a prince and, of course, Cinderella. With Blanchett and Romanek on board, we're thinking this one won't involve pumpkin carriages and talking mice.

With that said, this won't be the first twist added to the preexisting cookie-cutter storyline—from the Muppets to gender role reversals, we break down some of the most unexpected and wacky twists we've seen in Cinderella's movie past. »

"Ella Enchanted" Remains Anne Hathaway's Goofiest Movie

19 October 2012 9:11 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

2004 was the year everything clicked into place for Anne Hathaway, and while it might not have been the year she starred in Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain, a sequel to the successful The Princess Diaries and Ella Enchanted got the ball moving. In the case of the latter, Ella Enchanted was probably the goofiest film she ever starred in, but it didn’t lack for some clever writing and a packed cast of Cary Elwes, Minnie Driver, Hugh Dancy, Lucy Punch, Vivica A. Fox, Eric Idle, and a Pre-ER Parminder Nagra. It never aspires to be anything above campy fairy tale fun, and to that degree it has just enough punch to entertain the kids, and few oddly placed classic rock nods for their parents.

How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days Gets a Sequel from Greek Scribes

17 May 2012 9:39 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

A full decade after the Kate Hudson-Matthew McConaughey romcom How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, an indie sequel is in the works. How to Get Over a Guy in 10 Days will be directed by Legally Blonde scribe Kiwi Smith who will co-write the script with "Greek" writers Jessica O'Toole and Amy Rardin. The project will mark Smith's feature film directing debut.

Smith's lucky number must be 10 because she also wrote the TV series "10 Things I Hate About You." Her film scripts include The Ugly Truth, House Bunny, Ella Enchanted and She's the Man. O'Toole and Rardin wrote the upcoming American Girl movie and also wrote the "Jane by Design" epsiode "The Birkin" as well as the Hilary and Hayley Duff movie Material Girls.

Hugh Dancy on Casting for Chemistry

14 May 2012 11:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Hugh Dancy shrugs at the notion that he tends to share strong chemistry with his female co-stars.“I think ‘chemistry’ is an overused phrase,” the actor says. “It’s hard to define, and it usually just involves good writing and good acting. I’ve certainly worked with people that I didn’t feel any personal chemistry with whatsoever but that worked out very well onscreen.” He adds, laughing, “And there are plenty of stories of people falling in love on movie sets and then producing absolutely abysmal films.”In fact, Dancy met his wife, Claire Danes (“Homeland”), in 2006 while filming “Evening.” The actors were married in 2009.If onscreen chemistry is mostly the result of hard work, as Dancy claims, then the actor is one of the hardest-working men in show business.Whether wooing Anne Hathaway in “Ella Enchanted” or Isla Fisher in “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” making the most of supporting roles in female-driven ensemble. »

'Mirror Mirror' poll: Best part of the movie (if you had to pick one)? -- Spoilers!

2 April 2012 9:15 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Mirror Mirror – the Julia Roberts-Lily Collins-Armie Hammer Snow White story that is nowhere as charming as Ella Enchanted even if it, too, ends with a production number — opened to an estimated $19 million at the box office over the weekend. The movie earned a B+ CinemaScore grade from audiences, which, having seen the film myself, I can only attribute to the audience being largely made up of kids under 12 (37 percent), who’d enjoy anything, and their parents (23 percent), who finally perked up at the end when Spoiler Alert! Game of ThronesSean Bean made a cameo as Snow White’s father. »

Weekend Box Office: The Hunger Games Powers on, Wrath of the Titans falls into the 'Tomb Raider trap', Mirror Mirror Underwhelms

1 April 2012 1:03 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As expected, The Hunger Games (review/trailer) again topped the box office this weekend, but its relatively strong hold suggests that it may be a bit mightier than a conventional Twilight/Harry Potter sequel.  With $61 million in weekend two (the eighth-biggest non-opening weekend ever, ahead of all the respective Harry Potter and Twilight Saga films), the film dropped 60% and ended day ten with a whopping $251 million.  That's the biggest ten-day total for a non-sequel ever, and the fifth-biggest ever.  It came in above the $240 million ten-day total of Spider-Man 3, and it is that film which its performance most resembles.  Spider-Man 3 opened with $151 million in May of 2007 before dropping 61% for a $58 million weekend.  Spidey took a drop on weekend two despite having no new releases to compete against because it wasn't exclaimed critically-acclaimed among the fanbase.  The Hunger Games had two big releases this weekend, plus the loss of »

HollywoodNews.com: As expected, The Hunger Games again topped the box office this weekend, but its relatively strong hold suggests that it may be a bit mightier than a conventional Twilight/Harry Potter sequel.

Supermodel Daisy Lowe To Make Screen Debut Opposite 'Game Of Thrones' Star Alfie Allen In Brit Thriller 'Confine'

1 February 2012 6:44 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The track record of supermodels making their way on to the big screen is not a particularly strong one. Cindy Crawford in "Fair Game?" Not so much. Gisele Bundchen in "Taxi?" No thank you. Heidi Klum in "Ella Enchanted?" Let's move on, please. Nevertheless, they keep trying, particularly so in the current generation. Lily Cole, for example, has actually had more success than most, with roles in films like "The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus" and the upcoming "Snow White And The Huntsman." And now, one of Cole's catwalk colleagues is dipping her toes into acting waters. Screen Daily report that model Daisy Lowe, who has been a magazine fixture since she was 17, will make her major acting debut in the British thriller "Confine," which begins filming next month. In the directorial debut of Tobias Tobbell, who produced the well-regarded 2010 indie "The Drummond Will," Lowe will take the lead role »

Twice Upon A Time in Hollywood…

Fairy tales aren’t exactly a new thing.

They weren’t even new when the Grimm Brothers famously published them two hundred years ago, and creative twists on those folk tales are almost as commonplace as the stories themselves. The publishing world alone sees dozens of new fairy tales each year, rehashed and reinterpreted. Some authors, such as Gail Carson Levine (“Ella Enchanted,” “Fairest”) and Gregory Maguire (“Confessions of a Wicked Stepsister,” “Mirror, »
