The Hollywood Reporter bring word that Reese Witherspoon is reuniting with her ‘Walk The Line’ director James Mangold for ‘Three Little Words,’ an adaptation of the memoir by Ashley Rhodes-Courter. Additionally, Amanda Seyfried is reportedly in talks to star opposite Witherspoon.
‘Three Little Words’ is described as a true-life Dickens-esque tale of a young Florida girl who entered the child welfare system when she was four. The script, by Lewis Colick (The Fighter) and Michael Petroni (The Book Thief), centers on the relationship between the girl and the unpaid volunteer (Reese Witherspoon) who discovers her nine years later. The volunteer must search for and convince the biological mother (Amanda Seyfried) to surrender her parental rights so the teen can begin a new life.
EW are reporting that Keira Knightley is in negotiations to play the female lead in ‘Laggies,’ a dark comedy from director Lynn Shelton (Humpday, Your Sister’s Sister). Anne Hathaway was originally on board for the lead but had to depart due to scheduling conflicts with her next project, Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic ‘Interstellar.’ ‘Laggies’ chronicles Megan (potentially Keira Knighley) who, freaked out by her boyfriend’s marriage proposal, pretends to go on a career retreat but actually hides out for a week with 16-year Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz), her new best friend. Mark Webber is also in talks to join the film as Megan’s boyfriend. Sam Rockwell will reportedly play an older character named Craig in the film.
Keira Knightley has a mix of small and big-budget films on the horizon, including the Kenneth Branagh-directed ‘Jack Ryan’ (co-starring Chris Pine) and the indie ‘Can a Song Save Your Life? by writer-director John Carney (Once). The actress married musician James Righton in a small ceremony in France on Saturday – congrats!
Following the Giraffe, John Goodman, Heather Graham, Ken Jeong and Gamecock posters, Warner Bros. Pictures has unleashed this latest character poster for ‘The Hangover Part III,’ the third installment in Todd Phillips’ record-breaking comedy franchise. Scheduled for release on May 23rd in the UK and May 24th in the US, Phillips wrote the screenplay for ‘The Hangover Part III’ with Craig Mazin, who also collaborated with him on the screenplay for ‘The Hangover Part II.’ The brief synopsis for ‘The Hangover Part III’ is as follows: “This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.”

John Goodman joins the cast.

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
Chris Pine (Captain James T. Kirk), Zachary Quinto (Spock), Zoe Saldana (Uhura), John Cho (Sulu), Bruce Greenwood (Christopher Pike), Simon Pegg (Scotty), Karl Urban (Bones), and Anton Yelchin (Pavel Chekov) reprise their roles from the 2009 ‘Star Trek’ original, with new parts for the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, Noel Clarke, Nazneen Contractor and Peter Weller. ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ is directed by J.J. Abrams with a script by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof. The film is opening on May 9th in the UK, while the film bows in the US on May 17th. The May 9th opening date will see the film in IMAX 3D, 3D and 2D theaters. ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ will arrive in US IMAX theaters from May 15th.
For different reasons, two key relationships for Spock in ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ are with Kirk and Uhura. The film really explores his Vulcan-Human duality and his significance in terms of the divergent Trek timelines…
Zachary Quinto: Yeah. I think Spock and Kirk are two characters who exist on opposite ends of a spectrum of perspective. I think each of them has a very fixed point of views: Spock of course being very cool-headed and logical, and Kirk’s being very emotional and instinctive and hot-blooded sometimes. I think this film in particular, and the journey these characters take on its course, it’s about each of them learning from the other and gaining from the perspective that the other has to offer. Having to face in themselves points of real challenge in order to be the fullest versions of who they can be and ultimately in order to save one another and help triumph against a tremendous force of evil.
Brilcrist has drawn this excellent Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch “Cumbersmaug” crossover piece. If you weren’t already aware, Cumberbatch is playing both Smaug and The Necromancer in ‘The Hobbit’ film series. Smaug, one of the last remaining dragons in Middle-earth, guards the treasure in Erebor. Cumberbatch will portray Smaug and The Necromancer through motion capture, similar to Andy Serkis with Gollum. Smaug has a very brief appearance in ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ during the opening prologue and the ending, but only portions of him can be seen, not his full body. I’m looking forward to seeing him unleashed in ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’!
Benedict Cumberbatch can next be seen as the villainous “John Harrison” in J.J. Abrams’ ‘Star Trek’ sequel, ‘Star Trek into Darkness’; alongside the likes of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Michael Kenneth Williams, Ruth Negga, Brad Pitt, Quvenzhané Wallis and Adepero Oduye in Steve McQueen’s ‘Twelve Years a Slave’; as the Smaug the Dragon in ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’; in ‘August: Osage County’; and as Julian Assange in ‘The Fifth Estate.’ Steve Moffat, the co-conceiver, producer and screenwriter of BBC’s ‘Sherlock,’ recently revealed that the third ‘Sherlock’ series is in production, reuniting Cumberbatch as the eponymous Sherlock Holmes with his fellow ‘The Hobbit’ star, Martin Freeman, as Dr. John Watson. The actor is also said to be in negotiations to play the English mathematician Alan Turing in ‘The Imitation Game.’
