madonnas movie gets us distribution

It's on!

We are VERY excited to report that Madonna's U.S. directorial debut W.E. has been picked up by The Weinstein Company for domestic distribution.

As a reminder, the film's story is about "a modern-day New Yorker obsessed with the royal love story between Britain’s King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallis Simpson."

The film was directed/co-written by Madge, and it stars Limitless' Abbie Cornish, Secret Diary of a Call Girl's James D'Arcy, and Never Let Me Go's Andrea Riseborough.

Here's what Madonna had to say about the distribution deal:

"W.E. is about the nature of true love, and the sacrifices and compromises that are often made. I've wanted to tell this story for a very long time, and bringing it to life has been a great adventure for me. I'm looking forward to working with Harvey and The Weinstein Company on this film."

Congratulations, Madge! As we've said before, we cannot wait to see this!

Are U pumped to hear that Madonna's W.E. is getting a U.S. release? Will U check it out when it hits theaters?

More Vamps! Actors Screentest For Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Filed under: Film Flickers

abraham lincoln actors to screentest for lead role

Last month, we reported that Eric Bana was in talks to star as Honest Abe in Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Looks like Bana may be out, because a list of actors who will be screentesting for the role of Abe has been released, and the Hulk star was nowhere to be seen.

Actors that are on the Lincoln list include Adrien Brody, Josh Lucas, Timothy Olyphant, and relatively unknown actors Benjamin Walker, James D'Arcy, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

We're not 100% sure which of these guys we think would be best, although Adrien Brody COULD be an inneresting choice.

Which of the actors mentioned above do U think would be best to play the 16th president?
