The first trailer for the romantic comedy A Case of You has been released online.  Directed by Kat Coiro, the film is set within the world of online dating and stars Justin Long as a young writer who tries to impress a girl (Evan Rachel Wood) he meets online with an embellished profile, adjusting his personality to fit her specific likes and dislikes.  Long co-wrote and produced the film in addition to starring, and it looks to be a funny and sweet indie with a potentially scene-stealing performance from Peter Dinklage as Long’s roommate.

The Nut Job will be based on Lepeniotis’ 2005 short film, Surly Squirrel. Disney veteran Lorne Cameron (Over the Hedge) scripted the film, “an action-packed comedy set in the late 1950s in fictional Oakton [that] follows the travails of the mischievous squirrel Surly and his rat pal Buddy as they plan a nut store heist that gets out of hand.” Hit the jump to see who else is joining the picture’s voice cast and to check out Surly Squirrel.

Brendan Fraser has been struggling on the big screen in the last few years after The Mummy dried up and Dwayne Johnson muscled him out of the Journey franchise.  That being said, Fraser has a slew of projects lined up for the next few years; count the action-thriller Split-Decision among them.  Starring as a father who must protect his children from killer brothers after witnessing a murder, Split-Decision doesn’t sound like the typical light-hearted fantasy fare we’re used to seeing in Fraser’s family films.  Hit the jump to see who’ll be filling in the roles of Split-Decision.

When last we reported on Running Scared-director Wayne Kramer’s Pawn Shop Chronicles, the picture had attached Paul Walker to star with Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst set to direct.  That’s old news.  What’s current is the casting of Elijah Wood, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser and Vincent D’Onofrio in the dark comedy.  The plot seems pretty much the same, which involves a local pawn shop in a small Southern town that is a link between a man searching for his kidnapped wife, two white-supremacist meth addicts and a down-on-his-luck Elvis impersonator.  Production on the Adam Minarovich screenplay is underway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Hit the jump for more casting news on Pawn Shop Chronicles.

Brendan Fraser, Kiefer Sutherland, and Eva Longoria Join Sarah Jessica Parker in MARRIED AND CHEATING

by     Posted 2 years, 173 days ago

married and cheating brendan-fraser-kiefer-sutherland-eva-longoria

We first heard about Married and Cheating last year, when Sarah Jessica Parker and Marissa Tomei were attached to star.  It’s taken a year or so for the rest of the cast to come together, but the project from writer/director Raymond De Felitta (City Island) is finally gaining traction.  Variety reports Parker is still on board to star opposite Brendan Fraser, while Kiefer Sutherland and Eva Longoria are in talks to join the cast. The story follows three couples who deal with “infidelity, deceit, and confusion.”  There is still room in the three couples for another female lead, but since the report does not mention Tomei, I bet she moved on.

Felitta will shoot Married and Cheating this summer for Magnet Media.  This is the first of six $10-$50 million productions financed through a $190 million fund set up by Magnet’s German arm. Michael London, Lauren Versel, and Janice Williams are producing along with Magnet’s Jeannette Buerling and Michelle Ohayon.

Production is currently underway in new York with director Kat Coiro.

Eric Brevig to Direct Brendan Fraser in WILLIAM TELL 3D

by     Posted 3 years, 53 days ago

Everything about this sentence is awful: Yogi Bear director Eric Brevig will reunite with his Journey to the Center of the Earth star Brendan Fraser for William Tell 3D.  This sounds like a disaster in the making—let’s break it down.  Brevig parlayed his solid run as a visual effects of supervisor on such films as Total Recall, Men in Black, and The Day After Tomorrow into a directing career that, after two films, is the definition of uninspired.  Fraser’s recent work is making it hard to maintain my policy of rooting for all Brendans.  And these two are joining forces for William Tell 3D, which is kind of title you make up to mock the 3D fad.  Gah.

Brevig replaces Nick Hurran in the director’s chair; the $27 million production is relocating to Romania and Switzerland for a March 2012 start date.  Chad and Evan Law (Hero Wanted) are tweaking their script with a family audience in mind.  Hit the jump for more on their take.

Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser and Craig Robinson Set for FREAKY DEAKY

A trio of actors have signed on for Charles Matthau’s (The Grass Harp) adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel Freaky Deaky. Variety reports that Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser and Craig Robinson will star in the Hollywood-centered crime flick. Dillon will star as an LAPD bomb squad officer who happens upon a plot hatched by two hippies who plan to scam a movie mogul using their bomb-making skills. Fraser plays a former activist who now puts his bomb-knowledge to work as a Hollywood pyrotechnics and demolition expert, and Robinson is poised to play a former Black Panther who now serves as the assistant to Fraser’s character.

In pitch-perfect casting, William H. Macy is already set to star as the alcoholic Hollywood mogul that the two hippie characters attempt to scam. The other day we heard that Sienna Miller may be starring in the film, but she wasn’t mentioned in Variety’s report today. Matthau will direct, and adapted Leonard’s novel himself. The film version will take place in 1974 instead of Leonard’s late 80’s setting of the book. While Fraser is used to starring in what can mildly be described as horseshit as of late, the other actors involved sound promising. It’ll be interesting to see who Matthau gets to fill out the rest of his cast. Production is set to start this summer in Michigan. Hit the jump to read a synopsis of Leonard’s book.

Mike Figgis to Direct SECONDS OF HAPPINESS; Christina Hendricks, Julia Stiles, and Matt Dillon Join Cast

Director Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas) has stepped in to replace Neil LaBute in an adaptation of LaBute’s collection of short stories, Seconds of Happiness.  The frame of the narrative takes place on an airplane and examines the interconnecting lives of various passengers through vignettes.  Clearly, this will be just like LostDeadline also reports that Brendan Fraser and Kristen Scott Thomas will be joined by Christina Hendricks, Julia Stiles, and Matt Dillon.  Hendricks will play a woman who catches her husband (Fraser) in a “compromising position.”  Because I’ve never read LaBute’s book but have seen every episode of Lost, I imagine Fraser’s position has something to do with pushing a button every 108 minutes.  LaBute is still on board to produce and shooting is expected to begin this summer.

Hendricks recently signed on to star in the ensemble comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It while Dillon is attached to co-star in Roman Polanski’s God of Carnage and Matthew Weiner’s You Are Here.  Stiles recently co-starred on Showtime’s Dexter.   Hit the jump for the synopsis of Seconds of Pleasure.

We have some quick casting news for you this morning.  First up, Brendan Fraser will star in the heist comedy Whole Lotta Sole for director Terry George (Hotel Rwanda).  Variety reports that the story centers on a young man who robs a fish shop in order to pay off a gambling debt, but the heist goes sideways when it turns into a hostage situation.  Fraser will play the shopkeeper who’s on the run from his gangster father-in-law.  Fraser had a rough 2010 with Extraordinary Measures and Furry Vengeance so hopefully Whole Lotta Sole will work out for him.  He’s also attached to star in the Neil LaBute drama Seconds of Pleasure with Kristen Scott Thomas.
