21 January 2014 11:44 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

New year, new news! (How will I introduce these news posts come February? I'd better start thinking of something now...) Let's kick it off with a double bit of casting news about Vincent Cassel, everyone's favourite menacing Frenchman, who has boarded two European flicks. First is the thriller, “Rien ne sert courir," the next film from French mono-name director Maiwenn, whose “Polisse” played Cannes to some acclaim in 2011. The other new gig for polyglot Cassel is Italian project “The Tale of Tales,” where he'll be joined by Salma Hayek and directed by Matteo Garrone, the filmmaker behind “Gomorrah” and “Reality.” And by the way, the original 17th century Italian title of the source material, is a collection of morality tales, “Lo cunto de li cunti.” Just in case that ever, uh, comes in handy. [Variety/Variety]Also coming in over the wires is some news about a couple of aging action men. »
