I adore the HBO program "Game Of Thrones". Something about seeing high quality actors sink their teeth into meaty dialogue really tickles my fancy. You can keep all the blood and guts you want with that show and just give me an hour of Charles Dance and Lena Headey saying very passive aggressive things to one another. Now, we will get the chance to see them outside of King's Landing and on the big screen, as the two have signed on for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which was just picked up by Screen Gems for U.S. distribution. The film is based on the popular Jane Austen parody by author Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). It follows the story we have all seen countless versions of about Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her love interest Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley). Except this time there is a zombie uprising. The film also stars Matt Smith, »

After years of difficult development and a revolving door of directors and cast, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies has suddenly found its shuffling feet and is finally underway. Burr Steers is directing from his own draft of the screenplay, with Matt Smith, Lily James and Sam Riley already cast. Now joining that trio comes a Lannister injection from Game of Thrones. Charles Dance and Lena Headey have both signed on for some adventures with the sorry stricken.If it's passed you by so far, Seth Grahame-Smith's novel was at the vanguard of pastiche literary zom-com mash-ups that briefly crazed in bookshops a few years ago. P&P&Z sees Elizabeth Bennet (James) searching for love and independence as a zombie plague erupts around her and American wildlife inexplicably starts appearing in the Berkshire countryside. It was followed by the likes of Sense And Sensibility And Sea Monsters, and of course, »
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was one of the first literary mash-ups, and probably the only one that successfully accomplished what it set to do: namely, put monsters into otherwise non-monstrous literary classics. It was only a matter of time before the book was adapted into a film; I’m actually surprised that it took this long. But now the Jane Austen/zombie narrative is getting its own movie, and has added a few Game of Thrones stars to the cast.
Charles Dance and Lena Headey, who play members of the oft-despised Lannisters on Game of Thrones, have joined Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. They are welcome additions to a cast that already includes Doctor Who star Matt Smith as Mr. Collins, Jack Huston as Mr. Wickham, and Lily James as Elizabeth Bennett. It’s not yet clear what parts Dance and Headey will be taking on, though I’ll »

What would Jane Austen do?
Chances are good that Austen could never have envisioned one of her most beloved novels being remixed into a weird zombie love story and then adapted for the movies - movies would blow her mind, for sure! - but we do think she'd approve of this casting.
"Game Of Thrones" cast members Charles Dance and Lena Headey have joined the upcoming adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's book, "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies," which is described as "an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem." Okay! Writer/director Burr Steers ("Charlie St. Cloud," "17 Again") has penned the latest iteration of the script. You might remember that Dance recently teased us about returning to Westeros, but it seems the "Dracula Untold" actor is keeping busy no matter what happens to Tywin.

While no one is exactly clamoring for a remake for one of Charlton Heston's most beloved roles, I think it's safe to say that director Timur Bekmambetov (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Wanted) is really going to deliver something different to the sword and sandal arena with his take. Screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years A Slave, Three Kings) recently spoke out about the kind of film they're making and how it will differ from the original classic. John Ridley's words via Coming Soon: »

According to Deadline, Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston is in early discussions with Legendary to co-star in their upcoming epic, The Great Wall. No word on who the actor may be in line to portray, but today’s announcement comes hot on the heels of Saturday’s news that Matt Damon is in talks with Chinese director Zhang Yimou – inked to direct – for a role. Damon’s slate is already starting to get crowded, but the pair are reportedly trying to arrange a time in his busy schedule so he can snag the other lead.
Based on a script by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro, the film will be produced by Thomas Tull, Charles Roven, Jon Jashni, Richard Suckle and Peter Loehr. In development for quite some time now, the project originally had Ed Zwick attached to direct. Man Of Steel Henry Cavill, True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgaard, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter »

British actor Toby Kebbell is on a roll as he’s now in talks to play the villainous Messala in MGM and Paramount’s upcoming remake of the award winning 1959 classic which won Charlton Heston an Oscar.
Kebbell delivered a fantastic performance in an episode of Channel 4’s critically acclaimed Black Mirror and found fame in Hollywood after landing roles in Wrath of the Titans and The Counselor. However, he proved that British actors are always the best choice to play villains as motion-capture creation Koba in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. He’ll also suit up next year as the evil Doctor Doom in Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four.
In Ben-Hur, Kebbell will play Messala, the man that the title character (who will be played by Jack Huston) hopes to take vengeance on after surviving years of slavery because his best friend betrayed him.

Matt Damon is getting some company in the sci-fi survival film The Martian. The Wrap reports that Halt and Catch Fire star Mackenzie Davis is in talks to join director Ridley Scott’s next film in a “small but crucial role”. Scripted by Drew Goddard based on an e-book by Andy Weir, Damon stars as an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars and must figure out how to return home. Jessica Chastain is set to co-star in the pic in another unspecified role, but one imagines Damon will hold most of the screentime by himself. Davis has proven to be a formidable talent to watch in films like Breathe In and most recently the romantic comedy What If, and The Martian is certainly her highest profile role to date. In addition to The Martian, The Wrap notes that Davis is currently filming Anna Axster’s indie A Country Called Home »

Tom Hiddleston is getting some company in the upcoming Hank Williams biopic. Deadline reports that Elizabeth Olsen has joined the cast of I Saw the Light, which sees Hiddleston taking on the life of the legendary country music star who gained notoriety for classics like “Your Cheatin’ Heart” and “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” before dying of heart failure at the age of 29. Olsen will be playing Williams’ wife Audrey Mae, who split from her husband after seven years of marriage due to Williams’ alcohol, morphine, and painkiller addictions. Their relationship was a turbulent one to say the least, and I imagine Olsen will be a swell fit alongside Hiddleston in the film. Marc Abraham is directing, and Hiddleston will be doing all of his own singing. Hit the jump for some big casting news concerning the upcoming Ben-Hur remake. Additionally, Deadline reports that Morgan Freeman has signed »

Morgan Freeman has joined the cast of MGM's completely unnecessary reboot of the classic sword-and-sandals epic "Ben-Hur," based on the 1880 Lew Wallace novel "Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ." That Timur Bekmambetov ("Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Wanted") is attached to direct, makes this an even tougher pill for me to swallow, given the filmmaker's usual style. This reboot will probably be closer in look and feel to films like "300" than anything resembling the 1959 Charleton Heston film, directed by William Wyler, that cleaned up at the Oscars that year (there was an »

His character is the fella who trains Ben-Hur, for the adaptation based Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of The Christ. The Way Back’s Keith Clarke wrote the original screenplay but it’s since been taken over and had a few rewrites by 12 Years A Slave’s John Ridley. You’ll know Bekmambetov’s work as it’s incredibly visceral and falls somewhere in-between Ridley Scott and Zack Snyder with the likes of Night Watch (2004) and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) – The latter being better than you’d think!

(Cbr) Hoping to repeat the success it’s had adapting Stephen King’s "Under the Dome," CBS has given a put-pilot order to a series based on the author’s 2003 short story “The Things They Left Behind.” Deadline reports the supernatural procedural will be produced by Seth Grahame-Smith and Greg Berlanti, and written by Grahame-Smith. The short story follows a man named Scott Staley who followed an inner voice and didn’t report to work at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. His survivor’s guilt is compounded when items belonging to his deceased co-workers begin appearing in his apartment. He soon discovers that his life’s mission is to give these items to the families of those who passed away. In addition to the series, the story has been adapted twice. The first was a short film by Pablo Macho Maysonet IV, the second a longer feature directed by Guillaume Heulard and Stéphane Valette. »

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

The agency did not say what actions it was taking to investigate who was responsible for posting naked photos of Lawrence and other stars.
