With Mike White set as the official directing replacement for David O. Russell on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, it’s time to start building a cast. While Natalie Portman was originally signed on to star as Elizabeth Bennet, her departure in October has left the slot vacant for the past two months. There was rumor a little while back that Portman’s The Other Boleyn Girl co-star Scarlett Johansson would be taking the reins, but this story
isn’t about Ms. Bennet – it’s about Mr. Darcy. Scottish Newspaper The Daily Record reports that James McAvoy has been cast as the romantic hero who helps Ms. Bennet stave off swarms of the undead. Based on the book of the same title by Seth Grahame-Smith, the film retells the classic Jane Austen story with a horror and comic twist.

While McAvoy is the kind of actor born to play a role like Mr. Darcy, there is one thing that I find somewhat suspicious about that article. The article casually says that Anne Hathaway is the top contender for the lead role, though her name has never been mentioned in association with the film
before. It’s entirely possible that Hathaway could be interested in the film, but the article is so blase about the idea that it seems questionable. Then again, I most certainly wouldn’t complain about Hathaway and McAvoy headlining this project – frankly, it sounds perfect.

James McAvoy is reportedly set to star as Mr. Darcy in a new horror adaptation of Jane Austen classic Pride and Prejudice.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a new film based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s book, adds flesh-eating monsters to Austen’s period novel.

Scarlett Johansson has been linked to the role of Elizabeth Bennet, and Scottish actor McAvoy is in talks to play her leading love interest, according to Britain’s Daily Record.

Austen’s classic novel was previously revived in a 2005 version starring Keira Knightley, who won an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of the leading lady.

I’ll be doing a revamp on this site, I’m not gonna remove anything just update and change a few things. I also have some new pictures to put up. So I’ll be adding those along with a few more things. So keep visiting and if your a fan of the site please consider joining our facebook page.

James McAvoy (Atonement) and Anne Hathaway (Love and Other Drugs) have been added to the list of potential actors being considered for the feature film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies combines Jane Austen’s 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice with elements of zombie horror fiction.

McAvoy and Hathaway – who previously starred together in Becoming Jane – join Scarlett Johansson (Iron Man 2) and Bradley Cooper (The Hangover), who have also been linked to the adaptation in recent weeks, as potential candidates.

Mike White (Year of the Dog) is attached to direct, after replacing David O. Russell, with Natalie Portman (Black Swan) on board as producer.

Check out clips for Robert Redford’s THE CONSPIRATORwhich stars Robin Wright, James McAvoy, Justin Long, Evan Rachel Wood, Johnny Simmons, Toby Kebbell, Tom Wilkinson, Norman Reedus, Alexis Bledel, Kevin Kline, and Danny Huston.

The Conspirator Synopsis: In the wake of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination, seven men and one woman are arrested and charged with conspiring to kill the President, Vice-President, and Secretary of State. The lone woman charged, Mary Surratt, 42, owns a boarding house where John Wilkes Booth and others met and planned the simultaneous attacks. Against the ominous back-drop of post-Civil War Washington, newly-minted lawyer, Frederick Aiken, a 28-year-old Union war-hero, reluctantly agrees to defend Surratt before a military tribunal. Aiken realizes his client may be innocent and that she is being used as bait and hostage in order to capture the only conspirator to have escaped a massive manhunt: her own son. (Source: imdb

There is no release date for The Conspirator yet, but in the meantime you can check out the clips below.

I finally managed to make some time to give this site a new layout. I hope you like it.

James McAvoy to evolve professor role in ‘X-Men’ prequel “I’m basically going to try and bury Patrick (Stewart’s) performance.”

Those fighting words come straight from actor James McAvoy who is playing the younger version of Professor X in “X-Men: First Class” – a role made famous by Patrick Stewart in the film franchise.

MTV News had the headline.

“I think the fun thing about these films is when you go back and you either reboot or do a prequel. You get to see how people became who they are. That means that you have to do them differently and by the end of the movie you have to do them the same way,” said McAvoy on his approach to the role.

“The interesting journey is what happens to them, what changes them, what makes them evolve – not just mutate, but emotionally and psychologically evolve,” said McAvoy.

“X-Men: First Class,” produced by Marvel Comics, will open on June 3, 2011.

Now that press junketing has begun on the Conspirator, I’ll be adding images and much more to the site. For now, I leave you with James at the Toronto Film Festival.

Much more to come soon.

Here’s a little about the Conspirator and what’s it about? The film is set in 1865 Washington as the fragile new post-Civil War union, just days old, threatens to unravel in the wake of President Abraham Lincoln’s murder at the hands of John Wilkes Booth. Since much unfolds in jails or in courtrooms, it hangs on the potent performances by its stars — Robin Wright as Mary Surratt, the only woman charged in the conspiracy, and James McAvoy as her reluctant young defense attorney — along with an ensemble knee-deep in talent and cutting across continents and generations. Tom Wilkinson, Kevin Kline, Stephen Root, Colm Meaney represent the elder statesmen, with Evan Rachel Wood, Alexis Bledel, Jonathan Groff and Justin Long leading the younger set.
