Filed under: Film FlickersMorgan Freeman

Racing, redemption, and Morgan Freeman!

That's what's promised in the new trailer for the upcoming sword-and-sandal epic Ben-Hur!

This will be the fourth film adaptation from Lew Wallace's 1880 historical adventure novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.

And while it will be hard to compete with the 1959 Charlton Heston-led version that won 11 Oscars, this version has some serious Gladiator vibes to it — along with some badass chariot racing!

Helmed by Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov, the film stars Jack Huston as the titular prince, who is betrayed by his adopted brother (Toby Kebbell) and thrown into slavery — but years later returns to seek his revenge!

Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) and go see Ben-Hur in theaters August 12, 2016.

And Vampire-Hunting Abraham Lincoln Is…

Vampires beware!

Earlier this month, we learned that a bunch of actors were screen testing for the role of Honest Abe, including some unknowns.

Now, it looks like Fox and director Timur Bekmambetov have found their Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter star, and his name is Benjamin Walker!

Pretty impressive that Walker was able to beat out the likes of Adrien Brody and Timothy Olyphant for the role, especially since he's been doing mostly Broadway work lately.

Congratulations, Benjamin! Give those vampires hell!

Do U think they made a good choice for President #16?

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?

She's Taking Over For Angie??

wenn2777716jb.jpg

Seriously?

Sources are claiming that the director of Wanted, Timur Bekmambetov, is looking to replace Angelina Jolie's character with none other than Kristen Stewart for the sequel!

WTF?

Despite her character's death in the first one, Bekmambetov had previously stated that he wanted to resurrect her in some capacity for round two. However, Angie has now reportedly pulled out due to scheduling conflicts and money disputes, so they're now reworking the plot to have a young lip biting, marble-mouthed female assassin accompany James McAvoy on all his overly-stylized, bullet-curving adventures!

BARF.

To be fair, girlfriend could probably use a badass female character after all the damage she's done to feminism playing the most pathetic, needy girl in all the world, Bella!

Not to mention that all Angie did in the original movie was stand around silently and shoot at things, so it would pretty effing hard for KStew to fuck it up. But we know she would somehow!

No production date has been set for this, nor KStew's next disaster - the craptastic, freaky-as-shit conclusion to the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn - so time will certainly tell if any of this actually becomes a reality.

Let's keep our finger's crossed that it doesn't!

What do U think?? Would U want to see Stewie Puss Puss in Wanted 2?
