The new adaptation of Stephen King's novel Carrie is still months away, but MGM and Screen Gems just want to make sure you don't forget about it. Taking a cue from the Internet meme that arose from a World War II-era British public safety poster, a new motion posters simply says "Keep Calm and Carrie On." If you're still confused about the creative inspiration behind this poster, you can read about it right here, but otherwise, it's a cool little promotional piece with some intense footage featuring Chloe Moretz, fire and blood. You might see this on some screens in your more upscale movie theaters. Check out the poster below! Here's the motion poster for Kimberly Peirce's remake of Carrie via ComingSoon: Kimberly Peirce (of Boys Don't Cry) directs this new adaptation of Stephen King's novel Carrie, with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (a writer and producer »

Well here's one for the books... after Joss Whedon confirmed that he'd be introducing the mutant siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2015's The Avengers, 20th Century Fox has moved to steal a march on Marvel Studios, with Bryan Singer revealing via Twitter that Quicksilver has been added the roster of X-Men: Days of Future Past, with Evan Peters (Kick-Ass, American Horror Story) cast in the role.
Having featured in both the X-Men and Avengers comic books, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - the offspring of X-Men baddie Magneto - are the subject of a bizarre rights issue, whereby both Fox and Marvel Studios can use the characters as part of their respective worlds, although Marvel can't make reference to them being mutants (or Magento's kids) and Fox can't refer to them as part of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Considering the fact that X-Men: Days of Future Past »

Kick-Ass princess Chloe Grace Moretz stars in this provocative road caper as Luli, a teenage runaway who bales out on her neglectful parents (Juliette Lewis and Anson Mount) to thumb her way to Vegas. But any illusions of finding a rainbow at the end of this yellow brick road are soon shattered, first by creepy cowboy Eddie Redmayne, then by Blake Lively, subverting her Gossip Girl image as the trashy grifter who becomes Luli's guide. Think Thelma & Louise meets Lolita. »
Here’s a turn-up for the (comic) books and no mistake: mere days after Joss Whedon talked about using the characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in the Avengers sequel, Bryan Singer has tweeted that he’s cast Evan Peters as Quicksilver in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. What's curious is that the original tweet in question has now been deleted - here's a screengrab of what it looked like and the full text is below - and was replaced with an Avengers-free missive, also below.Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a Really fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.— Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) May 23, 2013 Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.— Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) May 24, 2013 So Singer has announced that Peters – who already has a comic book film credit to his name with Kick-Ass’ Todd – is on board for the movie. »
While Quicksilver was announced as being one of the big additions in Joss Whedon’s Avengers 2, Fox is going to strike first. They’ve decided to add Another mutant to the bursting-at-the-seams-of-leather-jumpsuits cast of X-men: Days Of Future Past, and that would be Pietro Maximoff, or Quicksilver.
“Before he was an #Avenger…he was just a Really fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.”
The film now stars Evan Peters, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart. It’s coming July 18th, 2014, almost a year before Avengers 2 (May 1st, »

Last month, we excitedly told you that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch might be appearing in The Avengers 2. Well, Bryan Singer has tweeted that the character of Quicksilver will actually be in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and he will be played by Evan Peters (Kick-Ass). See Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were Magneto’s children before they went on to join the Avengers, so they are free to be used in both the Fox-owned X-Men and the Disney-owned Avengers movies. Was adding Quicksilver and intentional "fuck you" to Joss Whedon or just some nerd-director gamesmanship? We guess we won’t know for sure until the two battle to the death at Comic-Con 2014. »

One more superhero couldn't hurt. Though it seemed like the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past was all filled up, director Bryan Singer just revealed one last addition. Through Twitter, Singer announced that "American Horror Story" regular and Kick-Ass co-star Evan Peters is playing Quicksilver, a character with superhuman speed who happens to be the son of Magneto and the twin brother of Scarlet Witch. What makes this news truly interesting is that Joss Whedon has actually confirmed that both Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch would appear in The Avengers 2 as well. So what does that mean for Marvel and Fox? Well, as Marvel's Kevin Feige explained to SuperHero Hype, "There's a specific arrangement with those two characters that would allow us to use them with Avengers, but not discuss or reference their mutant or Magneto-related lineage. [Fox] can use them as mutants and as Magneto's relatives, but cannot have »

Despite Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver being revealed recently to be joining Earth's mightiest heroes in The Avengers 2015 sequel, it seems the latter character will first appear in 20th Century Fox's 2014 mutant assembly, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Director Bryan Singer has just tweeted that actor Evan Peters (Kick-Ass, Never Back Down) is joining the ensemble cast of the “In-between-quel.” In other words, Fox just got the jump on Marvel Studios & Avengers 2 director Joss Whedon. Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a Really fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.— Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) May 23, 2013 It's well known that both studios complicatedly hold the rights to Quicksilver, aka Pietro Maximoff, and both, therefore, could use him on the big-screen. However, Marvel Studios wouldn't be able to acknowledge the fact that he's a mutant and son of Magneto (who is being »
FX's third season of its hit horror series is ramping up. Production on 'American Horror Story: Coven' is well underway over in New Orleans and the next season has scored another new cast member to join its gang of returning players. 'Scream 4' star Emma Roberts (below) has signed on to play a new character named Madison who is being described as 'a self-involved party girl'. The role is particularly handy for Roberts as she is currently dating 'American Horror Story' actor Evan Peters ('Kick-Ass') so trailer tonsil tennis will be a welcome distraction for the young pair. Kathy Bates ('Misery'), Gabourey Sidibe ('Precious'), Angela Bassett ('Olympus Has Fallen') and Patti Lupone also join in with the returning cast members that include Peters, Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Sarah Paulson and Frances Conroy. »
Fresh off a successful festival circuit run of his historical thriller Painless, director Juan Carlos Medina's next project will be an adaptation of the Peter Ackroyd novel, Dan Leno & the Limehouse Golem. Announced at the Cannes film festival today, the script is written by Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class), and will be produced by Stephen Woolley (The Crying Game, Byzantium). I read the book, a crime thriller set in the the dance halls and libraries of Victorian London, last year, and it is wonderfully dark and delicious. Ackroyd's work is full of great detail of the rich atmosphere of the era. Certainly, Victorian London has been seen a lot on film, but I think a fresh perspective, especially from a non-uk director, is...

Casting directors are among the most powerful figures in showbusiness, able to make or break careers. But what exactly do they do? Laura Barnett talks auditions, callbacks – and tears
Up in his office on the sixth floor of the Palace theatre, in the heart of London's theatreland, Stephen Crockett is letting me in on a secretive world. The walls are lined with posters for hit shows he has worked on: from Chicago to almost every Andrew Lloyd Webber musical; from Mamma Mia! to Jerry Springer: The Opera. His desk is buried beneath piles of newspapers, CVs and headshots. But – showing me a photograph of performer Dianne Pilkington, just cast in Mamma Mia! – he assures me it's organised chaos. This is the mysterious world of the casting director.
They are rarely interviewed. Few people outside theatre, film and TV know who they are. Yet casting directors rank among the most influential operators in showbusiness. »

In the upcoming Antoine Fuqua-directed big-screen adaptation of “The Equalizer”, Denzel Washington will play a former CIA killer who has retired to a life of loneliness, reading books, drinking in coffee shops, and working at the Home Depot. Then Russian pimps get under his skin and it’s asskicking time. Watch out, Russian pimps! New Zealand actor Marton Csokas (Celeborn from the “The Lord of the Rings” films) has now joined the cast of “The Equalizer” as the film’s villain, described as “a vicious fixer for the Russian” mob. Besides the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, Csokas was also in “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” (though he’d probably love you to forget about this one), and will be playing Damian Lord in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” (a potentially more memorable role — or at least, compared to “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter »

Kick-Ass 3 has offered its first preview.
The writer has promised that the third outing of Dave Lizewski will be his last.
"It's all about a rite of passage. It's about a kid whose mum has died and he's not really that enchanted with the real world. He's become absorbed in this fantasy world of comics but he's taken it to the next level and gets dressed up as these characters."
He also said that, if the title were to continue in any form, it would star Big Daddy and be set before the events of the first series.
"Kick-Ass 3 is definitely the end of everybody's story, but there »

Kick-Ass star Chloe Moretz will most likely end up starring alongside Denzel Washington in the Antoine Fuqua-directed film The Equalizer. According to the report, Sony Pictures said Moretz has a strong reading with Washington, and they are going to offer her the part of the lead female role, Teri.
The studio was originally looking to cast a twenty-something year old in the role. Moretz, who is still a teenager, must have just blew them all away because they made an exception. They redrew the role, and she will play a young prostitute in the movie, which the report says is "reminiscent of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver." Moretz is a great young actress that is really taking on some edgy movie roles. I'm sure she's going to be great in the part.
The story centers on Robert McCall, a former spy turned private detective. For those of you not »

We already learned that Antoine Fuqua replaced Nicolas Winding Refn and take over Columbia Pictures’ upcoming adaptation of The Equalizer with Denzel Washington set to star. Now comes word that only sixteen years old, Chloe Moretz has been cast as the female lead for the big-screen adaptation of Michael Sloan‘s popular ’80s crime show. Moretz will play the role of a Teri, a young prostitute, reminiscent of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver. The role was written for twenty-something actor, but a reading between Washington and the Kick-Ass star has yielded some very impressive results. Since the actress has tweeted that she ‘cannot wait to start,’...
