William Shakespeare's timeless Romeo and Juliet tale is getting an action-packed twist, with Sony Pictures picking up the spec script Verona by Neil Widener and Gavin James. Verona is the city where the original Romeo and Juliet story unfolds, but Heat Vision Blog reports that the script re-imagines the love story, set in a world similar to Zack Snyder's stylized action epic 300. No specific plot details were released at this time.
This certainly won't be the first time that Romeo and Juliet was taken in a new direction. Baz Luhrmann directed the 1996 drama Romeo + Juliet, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes, which was an uber-violent take on the original play that still kept William Shakespeare's original dialogue intact. It remains to be seen if Neil Widener and Gavin James will also keep Shakespeare's same dialogue or if they will go in a different direction. Other notable adaptations »

A politically-charged serial killer thriller set in 1953 Soviet Russia, Child 44 chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), as a traitor. Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up enforced by Leo’s psychopathic rival Vasili (Joel Kinnaman), who insists “There is no crime in Paradise.”

Universal Pictures has continued to push forward with its prequel tale to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman by adding three actors into the mix to form part of the new dwarfs set to feature in The Huntsman.
Similarly to the original film, three British actors have been cast in the roles alongside the returning Nick Frost as Nion. Gavin & Stacey stars Rob Brydon and Sheridan Smith have joined the cast, as has Alexandra Roach who co-starred in 2013’s One Chance.
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan makes his directorial debut with the film, which has Chris Hemsworth (The Hunstman) and Charlize Theron (Ravenna) reprising their roles from the original, joined by Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) and Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year).
The prequel is set in the same world as the previous film, but tells a new chapter in the story which focuses on the Huntsman and Ravenna’s lives before »

What light through yonder studio exec’s window breaks? Tis the dawn of a new version of William Shakespeare’s Romeo And Juliet, Verona, that Sony is currently looking to bundle onto its slate, like an apothecary stocking up on marketable potions. Perhaps the original Ya yarn, the Bard’s tragic romance has been revisited and reimagined so frequently that Tybalt is starting to get Rsi in his sword arm, but producer Joe Roth (Alice In Wonderland, Oz The Great And Powerful) is overseeing something a little different this time. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Verona is conceived as a stylised take on the teen romance set in “a 300-style world”. Altogether now: “This… is… Verona!”Roth, who also has Alice In Wonderland and Snow White And The Huntsman sequels on his plate, is keeping further details under wraps but we do know that the script is a spec written »
Rob Brydon ("The Trip"), Alexandra Roach ("Cuban Fury") and Sheridan Smith ("Jonathan Creek") have all signed on to play three new dwarfs in Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's "The Huntsman," the upcoming prequel to 2012's "Snow White and the Huntsman" which is in development at Universal Pictures.
Nick Frost has already signed on to reprise his dwarf role from the original, at the time it was indicated that the film would only feature two dwarfs. Seems that stance has been reconsidered, though Frost is the only actor who played a dwarf in the first film who is coming back for the sequel.
Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the other dwarfs in 'Snow White' and aren't expected back - though Jones and Marsan were said to have been contacted about the job.

The cast of The Huntsman, the prequel to the 2012 fantasy Snow White and the Huntsman, already has a solid cast. Chris Hemsworth is reprising his title role, with Charlize Theron back as Ravenna and newcomers Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain coming aboard. And while all the dwarves from the first film aren't back, Nick Frost is at least back as Nion. Now some more dwarves are entering the mix as THR reports The Trip star Rob Brydon, Quartet actress Sheridan Smith and The Iron Lady supporting star Alexandra Roach have all taken roles as the gruff ensemble of dwarves this time. Yeah, there's some female dwarves! As of now, there aren't a lot of specifics on the story, but the prequel takes place before Snow White ever crosses paths with Ravenna and will follow the huntsman Eric as he is sent on a quest to find the stolen magic mirror, »

Less than a month after actor Nick Frost signed on to reprise his Snow White and the Huntsman dwarf role Nion in Universal Pictures' sequel The Huntsman, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith have signed on to play three new dwarfs. We reported in January that the sequel will only feature two dwarfs, but it seems Universal has reconsidered that stance. No details were given regarding these new characters, but this is the first time female dwarfs are being introduced into the fairy tale storyline.
In Snow White and the Huntsman, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the seven dwarfs. Our report from January revealed that Toby Jones could not come to terms with the studio to reprise his role, while Eddie Marsan had scheduling complications with the Showtime series Ray Donovan. It isn't known why the others »
Comedic actor Rob Brydon will also play one of the dwarves in The Huntsman

Universal’s The Huntsman, a spinoff of 2012’s Snow White And The Huntsman, has secured a brand new roster of dwarves to accompany returning dwarf Nick Frost. Much like Disney’s Beauty And The Beast remake is crowded with Brits, it seems that Universal are chasing down a similar idea as Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith have all signed on to appear.
Their involvement on The Huntsman makes for interesting news in light of previous reports suggesting there would be a distinct lack of dwarves in the movie. Nevertheless, the trio are enlisted and ought to be in for a cracking time. Two of the newest cast, Brydon and Smith, will be reunited after they both starred in the BBC comedy series Gavin & Stacey. Brydon can be also seen in Disney’s live-action Cinderella which opened last weekend. Roach’s biggest role to date was in Margaret Thatcher »

I know I’ve seen Snow White And The Huntsman but I can scarcely recall any of it. I don’t remember it being particularly bad or particularly good for that matter, but what I do remember is that it didn’t exactly scream sequel; however we're getting a sequel anyway with The Huntsman directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. We’d previously told you that the number of dwarves in The Huntsman would be reduced, with Nick Frost, Eddie Marsan, and Toby »

Back in January, there was some concern that the Snow White And The Huntsman prequel – simply called The Huntsman – would be rather lacking in the dwarfular department thanks to story directions and scheduling issues. Good news on that front! Nick Frost, who played Nion in the first film, will be back for this one, with Sheridan Smith, Rob Brydon and Alexandra Roach also signing on. This news signals that the likes of Ian McShane, Ray Winston, Johnny Harris, Eddie Marsan and Brian Gleeson are unlikely to return, though we’re counting none of them out given the change in Frost’s status.Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is handling directorial chores for this one, which finds Chris Hemsworth’s title character in the years before he first met Snow, and his early encounters with Charlize Theron’s beguiling, dangerous Ravenna. Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain are also set for the film, which will »

Sneak Peek new images of actress Kristen Stewart ("Twilight") in a recent issue of "Interview" magazine:
"...Stewart, now 24, grew up in L.A.—grew up on the film sets where her parents work behind the camera in Hollywood. As 'Joan Jett' in 'The Runaways' (2010), the translation from chill movie star to chill rock star is seamless and expectedly wonderful.
"And playing the live-wire Beat 'Marylou' in Walter Salles's adaptation of Kerouac's 'On the Road' (2012)...
"...Stewart's cool becomes almost tangible, a magical dust she scatters around her...

Earning more than the rest of the field combined, Disney's Cinderella (2015) easily took the top spot at the box office this weekend.Liam Neeson's Run All Night got off to a very slow start, while indie horror flick It Follows had a great debut in limited release.Playing at 3,845 locations, Cinderella opened to $67.9 million. That ranks seventh all-time among March debuts. Compared to Disney's recent live-action fantasies, Cinderella's opening was roughly on par with Maleficent ($69.4 million), though it was noticeably lower than Oz The Great and Powerful ($79.1 million). It also opened well above Snow White and the Huntsman ($56.2 million).This is all the more impressive considering Cinderella's budget was a modest $95 million, which is around half as much as the rest of those movies cost.Cinderella's audience was 66 percent female and 66 percent families. The movie received a strong "A" CinemaScore; combine that with great reviews, and this should hold »
