The newest trailer for "The Lone Ranger" gives us a better feeling for Johnny Depp's Tonto and the genesis of his relationship with Armie Hammer's Lone Ranger. Tonto's got better dialogue in this clip, whereas in previous trailers, he was talking to the Lone Ranger's horse and making deadpan jokes. It may or may not calm down the folks poking fun at Depp's serious take on the Native American sidekick. Although there is quite a bit that we already saw in the trailer released in April, it's not unpleasant to revisit Hammer's handsome visage, especially since most of us last saw it under a thick layer of latex in "J. Edgar." (He played the dreamy prince in "Mirror Mirror" after that, which is worth a look!) Of course, the trailer includes the iconic image of the Lone Ranger's white horse rearing up with a neigh, a train hold-up, »

She really is the fairest of them all! Lily Collins arrived at the set of her new film, Love, Rosie, on Monday, May 20 sporting a fresh face before getting glammed up for the big screen. The 24-year-old Mirror Mirror star walked onto the Toronto, Ontario set makeup-free, wearing her locks up in a ponytail. After spending a little time with hair and makeup, Collins reemerged with her hair half-up and curly and wearing subtle makeup that accentuated her already beautiful features. "It used to bother me [...] »
After a string of big budget studio productions to kick-start her career, including roles in The Blind Side and Mirror Mirror (lest we forget about the ill-fated Abduction), Lily Collins sought a change of pace for her latest project: The English Teacher. “I'd never done an independent film and I was really curious as to how they were different than studio projects,” Collins tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I read the script and even though it was a smaller character in an ensemble piece, I just thought it's a character that I haven't played before.” Photos: Hottest

Well, Miley Cyrus and Lily Collins have at least one thing in common. The Hannah Montana bad girl and Mirror Mirror good girl have both donned outfits with large white bows on the back. Miley's bow was fastened the back of a chic Valentino jumpsuit. We love when the queen of twerking opts for classier ensembles, which she did for last night's Maxim Hot 100 party, of all places. But she has some competition from the Moral Instruments actress and her Paule Ka stunner. For starters, the bow is way bigger (bigger is always better, right?) and the plunging neckline on the front of the gown is definitely sexier. Sorry Miley, but our vote goes to Lily on this one. What's your take? »

The second instalment of the J. J. Abrams reboot Star Trek: Into Darkness is upon us, trailing in its wake a plethora of theories about its villain (played by Benedict Cumberbatch). Is it Khan? Gary Mitchell? Or maybe Charlie Evans? In fact, the theories are so numerous, they’ve been harder to contain than a warp core breach. And it’s no surprise – with four live-action TV shows (as well as an animated series) – Gene Roddenbery’s Star Trek universe offers such rich pickings for small-to-big screen adaptations. From Star Trek: The Motion Picture’S tweaking of The Original Series (Tos) episode ‘The Changeling’, featuring an alien probe called Nomad, to the seminal Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, which took bionic superman, Khan Noonien Singh, from ‘Space Seed’, and explored his fate some years after being dumped on Ceti Alpha V. So what other episodes might offer »

• He might be King of the North to some, but Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden (he plays Robb Stark on the HBO series) is about to reach a whole new demographic when he takes on the role of Prince Charming in Disney’s live-action adaptation of Cinderella. Downton Abbey’s Lily James will play the title role in the Kenneth Branagh-directed film, with Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother. With a script from Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada), we’re starting to get excited to see what Branagh does with the film, and to finally see »

Richard Madden: Game of Thrones’ King of the North to play Prince Charming in Cinderella Richard Madden, Game of Thrones‘ King of the North Robb Stark, has been cast as Prince Charming in Disney’s live-action retelling of the Cinderella fairy-tale. A few days ago, Lily James (Wrath of the Titans, Downton Abbey) was announced as the actress to try on Cinderella’s tiny glass slippers. The other major Cinderella cast member announced so far is Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett (Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator), who’ll play the evil Lady Tremaine, Cinderella’s wicked stepmother — perhaps with shades of Queen Elizabeth I? Cinderella follows in the (sizable) footsteps of other fairy-tales that have reached the world’s screens in recent years: Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010), starring Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, grossed $1.02 billion worldwide.

If you don’t watch HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, then you may not be familiar with the name Richard Madden. If you do watch the show though, then you’ll know the actor’s name due to his portrayal of Robb Stark. Whether you know him or not, you’ll soon be seeing him on the silver screen in Disney’s live-action retelling of the classic tale Cinderella, which has Downton Abbey star Lily James set to play the titular princess and Cate Blanchett taking on the role of the evil stepmother.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor) and written by Chris Weitz, the film will take a more gritty approach to the story, though don’t expect anything too dark as director Mark Romanek (who was previously attached to the film) clashed with the studio due to his version being too mature for Disney’s young audience. »

The film was written by Dan Chariton and Stacy Chariton and is an Artina Films production. Linda Sinclair (Moore) is a forty-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in the small town of Kingston, »

• Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) is reportedly in talks to join Christopher Nolan’s (The Dark Knight Rises) time-travel epic, Interstellar. She’d be joining a cast that currently includes Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey. Since she’s started getting more significant roles, Chastain has never really ventured into pure science fiction territory (we’re not counting Take Shelter). She famously dropped out of Oblivion when offered the Zero Dark Thirty role, so we’re excited for her to take on a new kind of film. The two-time Oscar nominee (The Help, Zero Dark Thirty) is currently filming Liv Ullmann »

Mirror Mirror star Lily Collins is set to star in the big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It's also being reported that Burr Steers (17 Again, Charlie St. Cloud) is going to direct it. So basically what could have been a really good movie, is going to end up being mediocre.
At least it will be developed from a script that David O. Russell wrote when he was attached to it, so that's a plus. Natalie Portman is also still attached as a producer. She and Russell were originally attached to the movie way back in 2009. It's crazy that the movie is taking so long to get to the big screen.
The book is an expanded version of the Jane Austen classic. It tells the story of a woman’s quest for love and independence amid the outbreak of a deadly virus that turns the undead into vicious killers. »

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is making a comeback. Lily Collins (The Blind Side, Mirror Mirror and the upcoming The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones) has been chosen to star in the film, with Burr Steers (17 Again, Charlie St. Cloud) as the director.

"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" is officially undead!
The big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's mashup novel (which incorporates zombies into Jane Austen's beloved 19th century classic) has been through a slew of ups and downs, but is now back in business with "Mirror Mirror" beauty Lily Collins set to star as Elizabeth Bennet, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
And, while the project had initially been courted by a host of directors, including David O. Russell (who penned the screenplay), Craig Gillespie and Mike White, it will be Burr Steers (best known for directing Zac Efron pics "Charlie ...

Yes, much like the walking dead who invade Seth Grahame Smith's classic novel remix Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, the film adaptation just can't seem to die. After running through stars like Natalie Portman (who is still producing the film), Emma Stone, and Anne Hathaway along with directors like David O. Russell, Mike White and Craig Gillespie, the project may have found new talent to hopefully get the project back on track. Variety reports Igby Goes Down and 17 Again director Burr Steers is on board to direct the film with Mirror Mirror and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones star Lily Collins in talks to star. These are both interesting choices for the film. Collins is a fairly safe bet since her profile will grow considerably after the late summer release of The Mortal Instruments, the first in a hopeful franchise. Collins will be playing Elizbaeth Bennet in the film that follows »

Pride, Prejudice and Zombies has been bouncing around so long, it's been almost three years since its original director, David O. Russell, quit. Enlightened's Mike White then signed on and eventually quit, and Craig Gillespie did the same after him. Natalie Portman was going to star, then Emma Stone, but both eventually left. Well, Variety reports the project is back from the dead, you know, like some sort of horror movie thing that comes back from the dead. Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down, Charlie St. Cloud) will direct and Mirror Mirror star/amazing-eyebrows-haver Lily Collins will play Elizabeth Bennet. They're currently working from Russell's original script, but a rewrite is definitely possible. Okay, sounds good, but we'll see if it actually happens. We're not holding our breath, because then we'd die and come back as zombies, and brains gross us out. »

The adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's zombified take on Jane Austen's classic novel is showing signs of life again. "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," following Elizabeth Bennet as she copes with life and love and the undead, has changed hands a few times. David O. Russell, Mike White, and Craig Gillespie were all rumored to direct at one point. Russell wrote the screenplay, and Natalie Portman was rumored to star in the film, but last we heard, Portman is now producing under her Handsomecharlie Films banner.
The latest rumor involves "Igby Goes Down" director Burr Steers and "Mirror Mirror" actress Lily Collins. The star is currently in negotiations for the role, which we hope goes well since it seems like a match made for zombified England. What do you think?

Hollywood refuses to let "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" stay dead. After years of development ebbs and flows, Variety reports that an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's literary mash-up (Jane Austen + zombies) is back on, with "Mirror Mirror" star Lily Collins in the leading role. Burr Steers ("17 Again") has been attached to direct.
Before getting too excited, however, it's good to remember just how many actresses and directors have been put together with "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" since 2009. In December of that year, Natalie Portman was named as star with David O. Russell onboard to adapt Grahame-Smith's book into a screenplay and also direct. Russell would later quit the film in 2010, however, when he ran into budgetary issues with Lionsgate, the studio that had acquired the book's rights. "The studio budgeted it as a genre zombie movie and gave me $25 to $28 million," Russell told the Wall Street Journal in 2011. "I was like, »
