There are cheap costumes, cartoonish special effects and endless nonsense monologues in Brett Ratner's “Hercules." Ergo, there's also Ian McShane. HBO's "Deadwood" blew up the journeyman actor's career, making him a must-have accessory in the eyes of all casting agents. But since the end of that show, where he essayed the role of the iconic Al Swearengen, he's been lost in an increasingly inessential sea of special effects-heavy blockbusters, from “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” to “Jack The Giant Slayer," from “The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising” to “Snow White And The Huntsman." You figure the qualifications for McShane appearing in your movie involve the least amount of acting possible. “Hercules” may be the first film where, finally, everyone is on the exact same page as McShane. Of course, if you don't know McShane, don't worry: he's in the bulk of scenes in “Hercules," and yet you »

Gravier Productions has announced that Parker Posey and Jamie Blackley have signed on to star in the Untitled Woody Allen Project, which is currently in production. Take a look at the official press release, then read on for more details.
Woody Allen added to the cast of his latest film, which is currently shooting in Rhode Island. Starring alongside Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone are Parker Posey (Broken English) and Jamie Blackley (Snow White and the Huntsman).
While "Magic in the Moonlight" rolls out in select cities this weekend, director Woody Allen is already at work on his next project, a college-set murder mystery starring Joaquin Phoenix and "Moonlight" muse Emma Stone. Adding to that promising two-hander, Parker Posey and Jamie Blackley ("The Fifth Estate," Snow White and the Huntsman") are now set to star in Allen's latest. Given how tight-lipped Allen prefers to keep his developing projects, details are scant. In typical Allen fashion, we may not have a sense of these roles until the film hits next year. Patience will be a virtue, so, in the meantime, maybe you’ll want to catch up with however many of his films you’ve yet to see? There are certainly worse ways to quell that wait. »

"Magic in the Moonlight" isn't in theaters just yet, but Woody Allen is already hard at work on his next film, and Parker Posey and Jamie Blackley are the latest performers to join his ever-growing cast of characters. The duo will join Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone in the next "Untitled Woody Allen Project," which is currently shooting in Rhode Island. The film's plot is a mystery for now. As per usual, Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum will produce the film, which will likely be seen sometime in 2015, although no distributor is yet on board. The prolific Posey is perhaps best known for her roles in Christopher Guest's mockumentaries, including "Waiting For Guffman" and "Best in Show." She'll soon be seen in "Ned Rifle," directed by frequent collaborator Hal Hartley. She also appears in the much-maligned "Grace of Monaco," which has yet to be released in the U.S. »

San Diego Comic-Con now in full swing, Universal has announced a host of new in-development comic-to-tv adaptations, including an as-yet untitled collaboration between Warren Ellis and Gale Anne Hurd's production company.
First up is a TV version of Frank Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham's Five Ghosts, a 1930s-set adventure story about a treasure hunter with the titular number of spectres living inside him. The twist (as if that premise needs more) is that said ghosts are literary phantoms Merlin, Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Musashi and Dracula, all of whose abilities the hunter can dip into as necessary. Sounds pretty exciting, huh? Ucp agrees, and has optioned the TV rights to the series. The headache of portraying all that on the screen belongs to pilot writer Evan Daugherty (Snow White And The Huntsman »
With the release of Brett Ratner’s Hercules edging ever closer, we had the opportunity of speaking to cast members Ian McShane and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal beforehand, who play Amphiaraus and Atalanta, respectively.

Berdal also tells us of her archery training she undertook for the role, and what it was like being one of the only women around on set.
