Eva Green never let her role as a Bond Girl typecast her, and, today, the actress is working more than ever.
After getting her start in an erotic Bertolucci film and breaking out in 2005's "Casino Royale," Green has played one captivating role after another. She was a standout in Tim Burton's poorly received "Dark Shadows" (2012) opposite Johnny Depp and is currently earning rave reviews for her mysterious and supernaturally-charged Vanessa in Showtime's "Penny Dreadful." This summer, she can be found as the sexy and manipulative Ava in Frank Miller's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For."

Arriving across the Us tomorrow is the highly anticipated action noir follow-up 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'. It's been 9 years since we last dipped into the live-action pages of Frank Miller's cult graphic novel and now Miller has reteamed once more with Robert Rodriguez to co-direct this sexy, slick, and violent sequel. Three new clips from the movie have been released each focusing on different characters from the comic book action thriller. The finely figured Eva Green ('Dark Shadows'), the haggered mush of Josh Brolin, the beaten up Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the intimidating Powers Boothe and the colourful Julia Garner ('The Last Exorcism Part II') are all spread out across the trio of clips which you can view below. Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson ('Trance'), Jaime King and Jessica Alba amongst many other also star. »
It may be in 3D this time around, but Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s monotone, monochrome comicbook universe feels flatter than ever in “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.” Rare indeed is the movie that features this many bared breasts, pummeled crotches and severed noggins and still leaves you checking your watch every 10 minutes. But that’s the dubious accomplishment of this visually arresting but grimly repetitive exercise in style, set against a sordid neo-noir landscape populated almost exclusively by tormented tough guys and femme-fatale fetish objects. Nearly a decade after the first “Sin City” grossed more than $158 million worldwide, it’s doubtful whether the directors’ overlapping fanbases can muster the same level of excitement for a picture about which the best one can really say is, “It sure beats ‘The Spirit.’ ”

An unnecessary sequel that’s empty and arduous, little more than vignettes on vengeance and cruel parades of sociopathic power performed as gleefully ultraviolent shadowplays. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film
I’m “biast” (con): didn’t see a need for a second
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
There’s the nihilism of Sin City. A place where wounded men have to remind themselves to “never let the monster out,” and a woman can “makes slaves of men,” and even “good men” are turned on by a woman’s tale of rape (which she invented, of course, because this is Sin City, where you can’t trust a dame). A place where men are nothing but how they can use their rage and women are nothing but how they can use their bodies.
And that’s none of it nice. »

The 51-year-old Dark Shadows actor will appear in Smith's action-adventure movie alongside his real-life daughter Lily-Rose Depp.
Smith's daughter Harley Quinn Smith will also act alongside the Depps, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Written by Smith, the film centers on 15-year-old yoga enthusiasts Colleen Collette (Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Smith) who have an after-school job at a Manitoba convenience store called Eh-2-Zed.
But when an ancient evil rises from beneath Canada's crust and threatens their big invitation to a Grade 12 party, the Colleens join forces with legendary man-hunter Guy Lapointe (Depp) to fight for their lives with.
The film is being labelled a "comic book movie". It will be Smith's follow-up to Tusk, the »
At 17, Chloe Grace Moretz is the It girl for movie geeks, thanks to her Comic-Con-approved resume of haunted houses (2005’s “The Amityville Horror”), vampires (2010’s “Let Me In” and 2012’s “Dark Shadows”), shy girls with secret powers (2013’s “Carrie”) and her breakout role as foul-mouthed avenger Hit-Girl in 2010’s "Kick-Ass" and its 2013 sequel. This Friday brings a romantic melodrama that takes direct aim at female devotees of young-adult fiction. In “If I Stay,” based on Gayle Forman’s popular novel, Moretz is a young cellist who must choose between life and death after falling into a coma following a tragic car accident. With Ya adaptation “The Giver” doing middling business with an estimated opening weekend gross of $12.7 million, the door is open for “If I Stay” to be a keeper if it pleases the book’s fan base as well as the underserved female audience. Signature line: “Okay you c**ts, »

Is Johnny Depp a movie star anymore? He is certainly famous, but he doesn’t have the box office clout he used to. The actor consistently does well internationally, but in the States, he hasn’t opened a major release in years, at least one that wasn’t already an established brand. Transcendence, The Lone Ranger, The Tourist, Dark Shadows and The Rum Diary all bombed here. Of course, the quality of those titles aren’t up there with his finer films, so that’s a slight hindrance. Maybe all Depp needs is simply a really good movie to win back moviegoers. Reuniting with writer/director David Koepp is a step in the right direction. The two collaborated on 2004′s Secret Window, which is an especially good Stephen King adaptation. It’s also one of the last times Depp pulled off playing an average joe. For some reason he couldn’t do the same in The Tourist and »

The actor has been cast as George Wickham in the mashup movie, which was recently put back on track with the addition of three cast members.
James will play heroine Elizabeth Bennett, while Riley will star as Mr Darcy, and Heathcote as one of the Bennett sisters.
According to Deadline, the film will enter production in September after Cross Creek Pictures acquired the domestic rights to the film.
Huston will start work on the film when he completes filming on the big screen adaptation of Nicholas Sparks's Longest Ride, which is being helmed by George Tillman. »
One of the books that started the mash-up fad has been in development for quite some time. Based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic, the film sees an old fashioned romance blossom in a world populated with the undead. The books have received mixed reviews, with many saying the story doesn’t get past the joke title, but there’s still a lot to enjoy, although my personal favourite would have to be Sense And Sensibility And Sea-Monsters. Writer Grahame-Smith has already entered the world of film with a script for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows and an adaptation of his own book Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.
Jack Huston has now been cast as George Wickham, joining the already cast Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy, and Lily James and Bella Heathcote as Elizabeth Bennet and one of her sisters. Igby Goes Down Director Burr Steers helms »

Today, Deadline reports that the cast has a new addition in "Boardwalk Empire" star Jack Huston. He'll play George Wickham opposite Lily James (Cinderella) as Elizabeth Bennett, Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) as one of the other four Bennett sisters, and Sam Riley (Maleficent) as Mr. Darcy.

We learned last week that movement is finally being made on the big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Jane Austen reimagining, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Today, Deadline reports that the cast has a new addition in "Boardwalk Empire" star Jack Huston. He'll play George Wickham opposite Lily James (Cinderella) as Elizabeth Bennett, Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) as one of the other four Bennett sisters, and Sam Riley (Maleficent) as Mr. Darcy. »
A famously restless actor, audiences have seen Johnny Depp take on a wide variety of roles in recent years, from Alice in Wonderland’s giddy Mad Hatter to Dark Shadows’ camp vampire and The Lone Ranger’s stoic sidekick. Now, the trailer for his latest project, Mortdecai, suggests that he’s finally found his calling: the upper-class English twit. Depp stars alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Avengers: Age of Ultron’s Paul Bettany in the comedy, playing Charlie Mortdecai, a “debonair art dealer and part-time rogue” that gets caught up in a quest to recover a stolen painting that may contain

Johnny Depp evidently does what he pleases in between “Pirates Of The Caribbean” movies and installments of his newly-minted “Alice In Wonderland” franchise. So no matter how many chinks in his armor he's sustained via flops like “Transcendence,” “Dark Shadows," "The Rum Diary" and the now infamous “The Lone Ranger,” he always has his fallback cash-cows. One gets the impression that he considers poorly performing films as someone else’s problem: Depp appears in films that interest him and that’s that. His latest whimsy? Depp will star in “Mortdecai,” a James Bond-esque spy comedy revolving around a dapper idiot. Here’s the official synopsis: Juggling some angry Russians, the British MI5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies gets a new cast; the Monster Squad reboot is dead; the full cast for Kickboxer has been announced; Lonely Island is getting a movie; Green Inferno gets delayed indefinitely; and The Interview moves to Christmas.
The Pride and Prejudice and Zombies cinematic adaptation has found new life – and has found its new cast.
Lily James (Downton Abbey), Sam Riley (Maleficent), and Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) are all on-board for the film, which is based on the Seth Grahame-Smith novel. As the title implies, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies re-imagines the seminal tale of the Bennet family as they face of a threat much greater than love: ...

(Cbr) Before becoming the producer of the proposed "Beetlejuice" sequel, rewriting "Fantastic Four" and signing on to direct Disney’s "Something Wicked This Way Comes," Seth Grahame-Smith penned novels that mixed historical and literary fiction with horror elements. The first of those, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" hit stores in 2009 and became a huge hit. A film was soon in the works, with a script by David O. Russell ("American Hustle"), but director and studio changes led to a long delay. Until now. According to Deadline, the film will start shooting in September, with Lily James ("Downton Abbey") as Elizabeth Bennet, Sam Riley ("Maleficent) as Mr. Darcy and Bella Heathcote ("Dark Shadows") as one of Elizabeth’s sisters. Burr Steers, who helmed "17 Again" and "Charlie St. Cloud," is directing. The adaptation has been in the works since 2010, with a variety of stars attached, from Natalie Portman to Emma Stone.

Fans of Seth Grahame-Smith might be happy to know that after numerous attempts and director changes, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies looks set to finally make it to the big screen – and they’ve got some brilliant people lined up to star.
On The Road’s Sam Riley, Downton Abbey’s Lily James and Dark Shadows’ Bella Heathcote have all signed up to the front the adaptation of Smith’s undead take on Jane Austen’s classic novel. James will take on the role of Elizabeth Bennett, Riley as Mr Darcy and Heathcote as Elizabeth’s sister. Burr Steers is set to direct the project and also has a writing credit alongside David O. Russell.
Pride And Prejudice And Zombies has been through numerous casting and director changes. At one point O. Russell was set to direct with Natalie Portman starring as Elizabeth, but both dropped out due to other »

It has been well over a year since we last reported on the planned adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'. The project has already eaten through a feast of talent attached to the project at some point or another including stars such as Scarlett Johansson ('Avengers Assemble'), Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway ('Les Miserables'). As well as Mike White and David O. Russell all set to work behind the camera. However, shooting is expected to kick off next month so this fresh coming together of director Burr Steers ('Igby Goes Down') and actors Sam Riley, Lily James -below ('Fast Girls', 'Downton Abbey') and the stunning Bella Heathcote -below ('Dark Shadows') will hopefully remain as the 'final' official line-up for the project. »
