Tom Hardy and Michael Shannon to star in ‘The Long Red Road’
‘The Long Red Road,’ from writer Brett C. Leonard and producers Richard Fant and Paul Neesan, taps Tom Hardy and Michael Shannon to star. The film will be based on a play about a man who attempts to drink away his woes on a reservation in South Dakota. When a visitor from his past arrives, he must reevaluate his ways and his past.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is having a Devil Wears Prada year.
Adding that this guy was also in that movie :D
THE LEGEND ENDS in IMAX on July 20th.
Page (who is incredibly tiny in person, with a slip of a voice that barely registers) first read the part, she tells Allen, “I was a little taken aback by the fact that you wanted to cast me as the floozy, you know?”
“That I wanted to what?” Allen responds, as if not sure he heard his soft-spoken star correctly — did she just say “floozy”?
“That you wanted to cast me in this role,” Page explains. “I just felt like it was very foreign to what I’m used to being seen as. So it was a wonderful opportunity, but I also felt very intimidated and insecure. And I remember we talked on the phone—”
“We did speak, but we didn’t speak long,” Allen interjects.
“We didn’t speak long, and you were basically, like, ‘Don’t — why are you — don’t talk about it. Like, it’s actually OK.’ ”
“To me, you seemed perfect for it. I had no reservations whatsoever,” Allen says. “I mean, you never sit down and talk about the characters. I don’t really know the answers to those questions.”
I couldn’t resist…
Good for you! You cash those checks, you rich motherfucker. :D

Kerry Washington to lead Django Unchained
It has been a long casting process, but today Quentin Tarantino finally found his Broomhilda.
Kerry Washington has landed the lead female role in Django Unchained.
The search has come to an end with Tarantino getting the actress he had his eye on from the beginning.
EXCELLENT! This is who JGL will most likely be playing opposite in the film.
I want a man that buys me bazookas.
Listen to Gary Oldman talk about TTSS and do a very funny announcement for this radio show. It’s Gary Oldman does The King’s Speech. Hilarious!
Amazing what that man can do with his voice. What a great actor he is. His Majesty Gary Oldman, indeed.
This man is fabulous.
From Empire Magazine’s FIVE STAR review (can’t believe they gave both of Tom’s movies five stars!) of WARRIOR:
Like The Fighter earlier this year, Gavin O’Connor’s Warrior balances brutal in-ring action with fractured-family drama, fixing on the tensions between two brothers. Like The Fighter, it features a hugely impressive, transformative performance from a British actor, who is next year to be seen in The Dark Knight Rises. And, like The Fighter, it’s entirely predictable in its sports-movie mechanics, but none the less enjoyable for it.
In the other corner we have his prodigal brother, Tommy (Tom Hardy). Tommy’s been absent from their hometown of Pittsburgh for 14 years, having left with the pair’s domestically abused mother. He’s an ex-Marine, fresh out of Iraq, and is a perfect storm of directed rage — even though, paradoxically, he approaches his recovering-alcoholic father, Paddy (Nick Nolte), to train him. In the cage, Tommy’s pure sprawl-and-brawl: a sharp-shock fighter, all tightly coiled power. Hardy’s physique is astonishing, more so even than in his portrayal of Charles Bronson for Nicolas Winding Refn. Bulked up primarily across the shoulders and neck, lending him a threateningly hunched presence, he’s a muscle-laden monster (bringing to mind the UFC’s own raging bull, Brock Lesnar), but also entirely convincing as a blue-collar boy from Philly — with extreme emotional issues.
My favourite line from the review:
“Like The Fighter, but with kicking. “
