Viggo Mortensen Drops Out Of Snow White

What a shame.

Viggo Mortensen has dropped out of negotiations to play the male lead in the upcoming film, Snow White and the Huntsman.

Viggo's been rumored to play the role of the Huntsman, however sources sources say he backed out after the studio couldn't afford to meet his $8 million salary demands.

Sadsies.

He's also been rumored to be one of the frontrunners to play the villain in the upcoming film, Superman: The Man of Steel, which means dropping out of Snow White would give him the chance to do Zack Snyder's reboot.

Viggo was perfect for the Huntsman role so we're sad to see him go, but maybe this will be a bonus for us if he's ready and willing to do Superman.

More Casting News! Superman's Got A Mom!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Diane Lane has joined the cast of Superman!

She will be playing Martha Kent, "the only mother Clark Kent has ever known."

Director Zack Snyder spoke of the casting news, saying:

"This was a very important piece of casting for me because Martha Kent is the woman whose values helped shape the man we know as Superman. We are thrilled to have Diane in the role because she can convey the wisdom and the wonder of a woman whose son has powers beyond her imagination."

Diane Lane joins Henry Cavill, who will be playing the new Clark Kent/Superman. There's no confirmation yet, however, Kevin Costner is said to be a "person of interest" for the role of Jonathan Kent and Viggo Mortensen is another possibility for the role of General Zod.

The film is shaping up to have an all star cast. Can't wait to see who else will join the cast. We see tons of potential!

K-Stew As Snow White?

kristen stewart up for snow white role

Guess we should call her K-Snow! LOLz.

The latest potential cast member for Universal's Snow White and the Hunstman is Kristen Stewart, who's up for the role of Snow White.

Other actors being courted for roles in the darker update of the classic fairy tale include Tom Hardy Johnny Depp Viggo Mortensen for the Huntsman, and Charlize Theron as the evil queen.

If we were talking about the traditional Snow White, we'd say it might be tough for Kristen to portray such an upbeat, song-happy character, but since this is clearly a darker, grittier take on the character…yeah, she might work!

Do U think K-Stew is right for Snow White?

R-Patz Joins New Cronenberg Film

rpatz in new cronenberg film

Uh oh, film school kids! Looks like you'll have to let Robert Pattinson into your world.

R-Patz has landed the lead role in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, based on the Don DeLillo novel.

He'll star as Eric Packer, a "financial wunderkind" who "risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day." His actions also put his life at risk, in this film which takes place in a "slightly futuristic metropolis."

Knowing Cronenberg's previous films, we're wondering if any of the following will happen to R-Patz in Cosmopolis:

- Will he have a naked fight scene, like Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises?

- Will he turn into a fly, like Jeff Goldlbum in The Fly?

- Will his head explode, like in Scanners?

Given some of the director's recent work, we're thinking this one MIGHT be a bit more low key, but we're def intrigued!

Are U excited to see this Cronen-Patz collaboration?
