It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Henry Cavill! "Tudors" Actor to Star as "Superman: Man of Steel" 


British actor Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill, Henry Cavill for short, has been announced as our new Man of Steel! The actor, who has been the frontrunner for the "Superman" role, did not know that he had gotten the role until this morning. That's how super-secretive producer Christopher Nolan, director Zack Snyder, and Warner Bros. have been. (Check out my interview with Snyder for "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole")

Cavill has appeared in the films "The Count of Monte Cristo," and "Stardust," but is best known for his role of Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk, on Showtime's "The Tudors."

Getting the plum role in "Superman: Man of Steel" is somewhat ironic since the 27-year old actor has tried out for superhero roles before. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Cavill was a leading contender for "Superman" when Warners was reviving the franchise in the mid-2000s. He was on McG's shortlist until the director was replaced by Bryan Singer who chose Brandon Routh instead in "Superman Returns."

Cavill also tried for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman that eventually went to Christian Bale in Nolan's "Batman Begins."

The Hollywood Reporter further stated that Cavill's closest competitor was fellow British actor Matthew Goode who was also being seen for the "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" part that eventually went to Benjamin Walker.

Other actors who met with Warners and Nolan were Matthew Bomer ("White Collar"), Armie Hammer ("The Social Network"), Joe Manganiello ("True Blood"), and Colin O'Donaghue ("The Rite"). (Check out my interview with Hammer for "The Social Network" where I asked him the "Superman" question)

So now, the famous Nolan veil of secrecy has been uncovered. Cavill will now don the famous blue tights!

It's Official! Seth Rogen, Barbra Streisand to Travel Together in Road Trip Comedy "My Mother's Curse" 


In July of 2009, we told you that Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand would star in the road trip mother-and-son comedy "My Mother's Curse." Now, it's confirmed! The Streisand-Rogen project has been given the greenlit blessing by Paramount according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"The Proposal's" Anne Fletcher is set to direct from a script by Dan Fogelman ("Cars"). Apparently, Fogelman wrote the script based on his own experience traveling with his mother. Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn are producing along with Evan Goldberg. (Check out my interview with Fletcher for "The Proposal" right here)

The plot follows Rogen as an inventor who invites his mother (Streisand) on a cross-country business trip to sell his new product. He will also try to reunite with his long lost love along the way.

Shooting is set to begin in the spring.

Who's Going to Play "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter?" 


Fox has announced that Benjamin Walker will star as Honest Abe in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." This will be the first film by Timur Bekmambetov since 2008's "Wanted."

I love this book! It shows the beloved Lincoln as a vampire hunter, forced into fighting the undead during the Civil War. Walker ("Flags of Our Fathers," "Kinsey") will play Lincoln from the age of 20 to 55, a challenging and daunting task specially since Bekmambetov revealed that they are going to keep the traditional look of Lincoln. Here's more of what the director revealed last year about the movie, "He has to be historically correct, but with a few special weapons. There is only one book, but there will be many opportunities to develop and explore this world if we get to do sequels. I hope we will start this winter. We are shooting in America." (Check Director Timur Bekmambetov Talks about "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and Much More!)

Another juicy role is the part of Henry Sturges, Lincoln's mentor and the one who teaches him vampire hunting. The part was originally offered to Tom Hardy ("Inception") but the actor chose to work on "The Dark Knight Rises" as Bane for Christopher Nolan.

"The Rite" Exorcises Box-Office, Makes No. 1 Debut with $15M 


"The Rite" possessed the title of the No. 1 Movie in America as the supernatural thriller debuted at the top spot with $15 million. Directed by Mikael Håfström and starring Anthony Hopkins as the elder exorcist, Father Lucas, "The Rite" pushed previous weekend's box-office champ, "No Strings Attached," down to No. 2. ("The Rite" movie review)

The Paramount Pictures romantic comedy starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher held better than expected with $13.7 box-office sales, and so far, "No Strings Attached" has made $39.7 million in its first 10 days of release. ("No Strings Attached" movie review)

"The Green Hornet," the super-hero action flick starring Seth Rogen tied for the third spot with another action flick, "The Mechanic," starring Jason Statham and Ben Foster. Both "Hornet" and "Mechanic" collected $11.5 million in box-office coins. ("The Green Hornet" movie review)

As expected, the Oscar nominations held last Tuesday, helped pushed nominated films such as "The King's Speech (No. 5 with $11.1 million -- box-office total so far? $72.2 million), "True Grit" (No. 6 with $7.6 million, $148.4 M total), "Black Swan" (No. 8 with $5.1 million, $90.7 M total), and "The Fighter" (No. 9 with $4.1 million, $78.4 M total). (Check Out My Best Movies of 2010)

Another Oscar contender, Fox Searchlight's "127 Hours" from "Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle and starring James Franco, has been expanded to 916 theaters and grossed $1.1 million for a total of $13.4 million. (Check Out my interviews with Boyle and Franco right here)
