Kristen Wiig May Join Anchorman 2 As Steve Carell’s Love Interest

6 December 2012 4:22 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

The Bridesmaids actress and ‘Saturday Night Live’ alumn Kristen Wiig is being eyed for the role of clueless weatherman Brick Tamland’s (Steve Carell) love interest in the Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

I just feel like the two of them have good chemistry, making for a very promising comedy pairing. Should Wiig join on she will be the first non-original player to enter that sacred circle of the Channel 4 Evening News team. Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Carell, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate are set to reprise their roles from the 2004 comedy hit Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

The sequel will again be directed by Adam McKay and will reportedly have an increased number of music sequences. Ferrell and McKay have yet to even finish the script, but interestingly, The Wrap adds that Anchorman: The Legend Continues is set for release in October 2013. Paramount was eyeing an unspecified 2013 date so far. »

Gerard Butler Joins True Story Dynamo

31 October 2012 4:15 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

The Scottish-born star Gerard Butler has been set to headline in Dynamo, a true story based on the nonfiction novel ‘Dynamo: Defending the Honour of Kiev’ by Andy Dougan.

As Butler likes football (he played for charity last year) and is a lifelong Celtic fan, and will next star in the soccer comedy Playing for Keeps, it will be easy for him to appear in a story which chronicles a historic game dubbed ‘The Death Match’ between an occupied Ukrainian soccer team and their Nazi invaders during WWII.

More precisely, the 42-year-old thesp will take on the role of Nikolai Trusevich, the all-star goalie who leads his team and encouraging the entire city of Kiev to fight back against the Nazis.

Dynamo is scheduled to shoot in Europe next year with an adapted screenplay by Eli Richbourg (The Phantom of the Opera).

Butler can now be seen in theaters in »

Jon Snow Tangles with Dragons in How To Train Your Dragon 2

22 June 2012 12:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Wonder if Daenerys would mind if Jon Snow played with her dragons? Not only will Game of Thrones star Kit Harington be tangling with dragons of a different sort, but he’ll also switch sides to the dark side. Harington may be DreamWorks’ newest villain.

According to Variety, Harington is in talks to lend his voice to the DreamWorks Animation sequel to the 2010 hit How to Train Your Dragon, based on the book series  by Cressida Cowell. At this point, we don’t know that much more about his character besides the fact that he is described as “a villainous warrior.” Harington would join the returning cast of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, T.J. Miller, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Kristen Wiig.

Dean DeBlois is back to write and direct the How to Train Your Dragon 2. Bonnie Arnold will produce again and Chris Sanders, who co-write »

Kit Harington is Villain in “How To Train Your Dragon 2″

20 June 2012 7:14 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

For my money, How To Train Your Dragon was the best non-Pixar animated film in quite awhile. That’s why I can’t help but have unbridled enthusiasm for the sequel. That enthusiasm has only gotten even more fiery now that they’ve added Jon Snow himself, Kit Harington, to voice the villain in How To Train Your Dragon 2, according to Variety.

It’s not set to come out for another two years (to the day), on June 20th, 2014, but returns basically everyone from the first go round. Dean DeBlois, who wrote and directed the original, is doing the same for the next installment, and will be joined by the voices of Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder, Undeclared), Jonah Hill (21 Jump Street, Moneyball), Gerard Butler (300), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad, Kick-ass), Kristen Wiig (SNL, Bridesmaids), America Ferrera (Ugly Betty, The Good Wife) and Craig Ferguson (Just Shoot Me). »

Kit Harington Will Teach You 'How To Train Your Dragon ' Too

20 June 2012 12:00 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Kit Harington may be playing the heroic Jon Snow on HBO's "Game of Thrones," but he's going to get his best evil villain on in Dreamworks' upcoming "How To Train Your Dragon 2."

Variety has the news that Harington is in negotiations for the role, though the trade doesn't know much about the movie's villain. He'll be joining the voice acting talents of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Tj Miller and Kristen Wiig. And considering writer/director Dean DeBlois is planning for this film to be part two in a trilogy, we have the hope that Harington can stick around for a while.

When DeBlois spoke with THR back in early 2011, he promised that everything about "How To Train Your Dragon 2" is going to be more epic than its predecessor.

DreamWorks Nab Voice Actors For ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2,’ ‘Trolls’ & More

20 June 2012 11:45 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If the star of my least-favorite TV show and one of modern music’s worst artists really need to converge, this is probably the best option. According to THR, Jim Parsons and Rihanna — the latter of whom, from what I’ve heard, was not all that terrible in Battleship — will be lending their voices to DreamWorks Animation’s Happy Smekday!, the studio’s CG take on Adam Rex‘s book, The True Meaning of Smekday.

We’re still in the early days on this one — a late 2014 release is currently on the docket, after all — but Matt Ember and Tom J. Astle (Get Smart) are already penning the script; Tim Johnson (Antz, Over the Hedge) will direct. In Smekday! (God, I hate that title), an alien race — whose invasion of Earth was part of an attempt to hide out — accidentally alert enemies of their location. The actual alien responsible for »

Game of Thrones’ Snow – Warrior Villain in How to Train Your Dragon 2?

19 June 2012 8:26 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Boomtron.com

How To Train Your Dragon was surprisingly great, wasn’t it? I thought so. Dreamworks is lining up its cast for the sequel which now may include one  Kit Harington, whom undoubtedly is most well known for his role in the first two seasons of HBO’s adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones as Jon Snow. In the books, mostly he could be viewed as a pretty swell kid, but if he were to lend his voice to How To Train Your Dragon, it would be for that of the villain.
