Alba Fears Whore Typecast

9 November 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie beauty Jessica Alba fears she is being typecast, because she only gets offered role as whores and sexy maids. The Sin City actress is grateful for the opportunities she has been given in Hollywood - but would kill for the parts offered to rival actress Natalie Portman. She tells gossip site PageSix.com, "The scripts I get are always for the whore, or the motorcycle chick in leather, or the horny maid. I get all those screenplays that start, 'Tawnya is in the shower. The water streams down her naked, perky breasts.' Somehow, I don't think this is happening to Natalie Portman." »

Alba To Launch All-Action Video Game

27 September 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sexy actress Jessica Alba is developing her own videogame. The gaming fan and Sin City star has co-created new 'X-Game sports' technology, which is being launched on mobile phones in Korea. Alba reveals she first became interested in the idea when she realized it wouldn't feature any violence - and now she hopes to use the unnamed videogame to show potential movie directors the types of action films she wants to be a part of. She explains, "It's something that relates to anybody, anywhere in the world and basically you use the city as your playground. It's really really cool. In Korea, what they're doing is people can basically play the games all the time on their phones. It's gonna be like an interactive thing. This is the kind of action that I wanna do when I do an action movie." »

Dawson Angers Neighbors

17 August 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Screen star Rosario Dawson and her mother Isabel have enraged neighbors in their low-rent New York apartment block by reportedly failing to pay their "dues" of $100 per month. The Sin City actress grew up in the East Village tenement, which is intended for those living on a modest budget, but fellow residents are incredulous she continues to live there despite her current wealth. One angry tenant fumes to website Pagesix.com, "She's a multi-millionaire. Our building is for low-income people." Another raging resident reveals Rosario's mohawk-sporting mother Isabel fights constantly with fellow tenants and associates with a "rough crowd" outside the building - which is where the teenage Rosario was spotted by Kids director Larry Clark in 1995. But Isabel hits back, "I've lived here 19 years - you're bound to have altercations with some people. Wherever Rosario decides to live - especially the building she grew up in as a little girl - she has that right. Whoever called (Page Six) is a sad person and they need to get a life. I'm sad about it. And I'm sad my daughter gets dragged into it because of who she is." »

Butler leads '300' for Warners

15 August 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Gerard Butler has signed on to star in 300, the adaptation of the Frank Miller graphic novel that Zack Snyder is directing for Warner Bros. Pictures. The film will tell the true story of 300 elite Spartan warriors led by their fearless king, Leonidas (Butler), who thwart the charge of Xerxes and his massive Persian army at the battle of Thermopylae. The studio is looking to make the film in the style of the graphic novel, which Miller wrote and drew in 1998. Miller, known for his work on the Batman and Daredevil comics, is the creator of Sin City, whose stylishness was rendered to the big screen by Robert Rodriguez this year. Heavy use of greenscreen and virtual sets is being mapped out but with an eye toward maintaining the look of the graphic novel. »

'Sin' bows well, 'Charlie' still strong o'seas

15 August 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

SYDNEY -- The summer boxoffice continued its meandering international pace over the weekend with no one standout performance, though a national holiday in Japan helped to boost results for holdovers there while Sin City made an impressive debut in selected European markets and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory continued its solid run. Robert Rodriguez's dark Sin City grossed an estimated $5.5 million in markets where Buena Vista International is handling the title, taking its cumulative gross to $33 million, boosted by four No. 1 openings: Germany ($2.5 million), Spain ($1.7 million), Austria ($510,000) and New Zealand ($200,000). Warner Bros. Pictures' Charlie and the Chocolate Factory held its own in most markets, grossing an estimated $13.6 million in 3,500 screens across 30 territories, generating a sweet $91 million cume, almost half of which has come out of the U.K. BVI's Herbie: Fully Loaded revved up $5.7 million for a cume of $42 million and should see extra mileage next week when it opens in Scandinavia and Korea. »
