Quite a few high profile films are starting to pick up momentum during these slow winter months and one of those projects is Bill Condon’s currently untitled Wikileaks movie. Already set to star Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange, Daniel Bruhl as his former right hand man, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, and Alicia Vikander as Domscheit-Berg’s girlfriend, DreamWorks is assembling a pretty appealing cast for their film.
Today, we have another casting addition to report on as Game of Thrones‘ Carice Van Houten has signed on as Birgitta Jonsdottir, “an Icelandic journalist who became spokesman for the website, and has gone on to be a MP in her home country.” For those who don’t recognize Van Houten’s name, she plays the sorceress Melisandre in HBO’s hit show and she also had roles in Hollywood productions like Valkyrie and Repo Men. Of course, she also starred in Paul Verhoeven’s Black Book, »

The star of Paul Verhoeven's undervalued "Black Book," Carice Van Houten, was tipped for big things after that film bowed in 2006. The actress picked up Hollywood roles in "Valkyrie" and "Repo Men" but neither role was particularly rewarding, and she had a quiet few years after. But the Dutch star (who has a side career in the music industry) picked up a prominent role as sorceress Melisandre in HBO's "Game Of Thrones" (she'll be returning to the show for the third season when it debuts in March), and now she's landed a role in another big Hollywood picture. According to Variety, Van Houten has signed on to join the untitled Wikileaks movie that's gearing up over at DreamWorks, to be directed by "Gods and Monsters" and "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" director Bill Condon. The film, penned by Josh Singer, stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange, Daniel Bruhl as his now-estranged right-hand man Daniel. »

The Oscar-nominated young Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, Hanna) takes the lead here, and judging by the first full-length trailer we saw late last year, we’ve got a pretty sweet sci-fi/thriller to look forward to next season.
A few days into the New Year, we were treated to a new set of banners from the film, and now AMC have debuted what looks to be the first in a new set of character posters, with Ronan front and centre below as Melanie Stryder.

The new year is with us and that means we start getting marketing material for movies set to hit this year. One of the movies in our ‘what to watch in 2013′ post was The Host. It’s based on the book by Stephanie Meyer (the author behind the Twilight franchise) and is released on the 22nd of March.
Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) leads with Max Irons (Red Riding Hood), Jake Abel (Percy Jackson), Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), William Hurt (A History of Violence) and Chandler Canterbury (Repo Men). It’s directed by Andrew Niccol who last year brought us In Time with Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried.
