Tom Hanks to star in Cloud Atlas

It's still up in the air, but Tom Hanks is expected to star in the Wachowski Brother's next sci-fi film Cloud Atlas.

Based on the David Mitchell novel by the same name, the film tells six interconnected stories and is being described as:

"An epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution."

Sounds intense! We hope Tom Hanks makes this official because we'd love to see him in an epic science fiction movie!

Are U excited for Tom Hanks to star in this film?

Will Smith And Son To Star Together In New M. Night Shyamalan Flick

will-smith-jada-jaden-new-movie.jpg

The family that works together, rakes in the big bucks together!

It's just been announced that three-fourths of the Smith clan have signed up to be a part of M. Night Shyamalan's latest sci-fi thriller. Will Smith and his son, Jaden, are set to star as the father-son duo who are stranded on an "abandoned and sometimes scary Earth" 1,000 years in the future.

Along with starring, Will is also set to produce the film alongside his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter, and Ken Stovitz. For those who are curious, the screenplay is by M. Night Shyamalan and Gary Whitta.

But hold up! What about Willow? Surely they can't exclude her from all the fun! What will she have to talk about on the red carpet?!

Hey, is anyone settled on a theme song yet? Huh? HUH?!

Natalie Portman Attached to Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity…Almost

nataliegravitye.jpg

Just confirm this deal already! Everything about this movie screams AMAZING!

Earlier this month, Angelina Jolie pulled out of Alfonso and Jonas Cuaron's sci-fi epic Gravity, and the filmmakers approached Natalie Portman about taking over the role.

Now, Portman is in active negotiations to secure the lead role, and it looks like it's nearly a done deal.

After Jolie's exit from the project, many actresses were rumored to be up for the role, including Rachel Weisz, Blake Lively, and most recently Sandra Bullock. We're thinking they're making the right move with Natalie.

The script was written by Alfonso and his son Jonas Cuaron, which we think is pretty cool. How often have we seen father/son writing teams? We can't think of all that many.

The story is about a woman who's the sole survivor of a space station crash, and wants to return home to her daughter. Sounds very reminiscent of other intense, isolation-themed movies such as Moon and Cast Away. We are totally on board!

Word going around is that Robert Downey Jr. will appear in the film as well. No details yet as far as the capacity of the role is concerned, but his involvement is generally a good thing.

We're pumped to hear more as the details arise!

What do U think of this project? Should Angie have taken the role?

Avatar Sequel Gets Tentative Release Date of 2014!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Thank God it won’t take 15 years to make like the first one!

And although four years may seem like a long time, James Cameron feels confident in his plans for the sci-fi trilogy.

"Right now, the thinking is that [films] two and three are going to be done together. They’ll be released separately, probably a year apart or maybe even two, but they’ll be done in a bunch.”

He hopes that his strategy will help prevent the failure that curses many big Hollywood sequels.

"I’m mapping out the story line right now, so there’s a proper arc that plays out over two films, but buttons nicely at the end of two, so you don’t get this horrible second-act Matrix feeling - you know: 'I’ve just sat through a three-hour movie and fuck all [that] happened at the end!'”

But don’t put your blue Avatar masks in the closet yet (we know you have them; no need to be shy)! Avatar is being re-released for a limited run on Friday with 9 extra minutes of never-before-seen footage!

Put on your 3D glasses and prepare to be blown away!

Inception's Cillian Murphy Joins JT & Minge Seyfried In New Sci-Fi Thriller

cillianmwenn5511372.jpg

You know, we find Cillian Murphy creepily sexy and we're kind of excited to see him in more roles.

Cillian has just been casted alongside Justin Timberlake in then new sci-fi thriller I’m.mortal. Along with Minge Seyfried, the trio will tackle the story of the distant future, where scientists have devised a way to stop the aging process, but have created a world of corruption and greed for said immortality.

Sounds right up Cillian's ally. If only Leonardo DiCaprio could swoop in and steal Timberpussy's role. Then maybe JT's ego would get bruised and he would return to music, where he belongs!!!

Thoughts?

Scarlett Vs. Blake

ScarJo better watch her back - there's a new starlet on the rise!

Supposedly, Blake Lively is gunning for a role in Alfonso Cuarón's upcoming sci-fi movie Gravity, even though Scarlett Johansson already verbally agreed to star in the film.

Blake is rumored to have approached Alfonso about the role, but he has his heart set on Scarlett to play an astronaut in the movie opposite Robert Downey, Jr.

We think Blake should show off her skills in Green Lantern before she starts trying to steal roles from Scarlett - her time on Gossip Girl hasn't really helped prove her cause!
