Salma Hayek Joins The Likes Of Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig & Ed Norton In ‘Sausage Party’
According to various reports, Salma Hayek is joining the stellar ensemble voice cast of the R-rated animated comedy ‘Sausage Party.’ She’ll play a taco named Teresa opposite Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Edward Norton, Michael Cera, Nick Kroll and David Krumholtz. Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan are directing the film for Sony Pictures and Annapurna Pictures. Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the script with Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir.
Sony Pictures will release the film worldwide and the studio is eyeing a release date in 2015. ‘Sausage Party’ is a raunchy animated movie about one sausage’s quest to discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, our hero sausage and his new friends embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the 4th of July sale.
From MTV comes this first clip from ’22 Jump Street,’ the upcoming sequel to the 2012 action-comedy blockbuster ’21 Jump Street.’ ’22 Jump Street’ reunites Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as they return to their roles as undercover cops Schmidt and Jenko; they are also re-teaming with ’21 Jump Street’ directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,’ ‘The LEGO Movie’). Alongside Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, Ice Cube reprises his role as Captain Dickson.
In the action-comedy, after making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. Opening on June 13th, the film also stars Nick Offerman, Dave Franco, Rob Riggle, Amber Stevens, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts.

An outsider who’s now the village hero, Hiccup is on the verge of adulthood, with his chieftain father, Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), grooming him for responsibility. But he’d rather embrace what’s left of his carefree childhood.
‘Captain Phillips’ Writer Billy Ray To Script The Leonardo DiCaprio & Jonah Hill-Starring ‘The Ballad Of Richard Jewell’
Early last month it was first reported that ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are set reunite on a 20th Century Fox project titled ‘The Ballad Of Richard Jewell,’ which is based on Marie Brenner’s 1997 Vanity Fair article ‘American Nightmare: The Ballad Of Richard Jewell’ (you can read it here). Today Variety have caught wind that ‘Captain Phillips’ screenwriter Billy Ray has been tapped to pen the script for the real-life drama. DiCaprio, Hill and Ray were all nominees at this past Sunday’s Academy Awards.
Jonah Hill is pegged to play the title subject, a security guard who discovered a backpack in the Olympics compound in Atlanta in 1996. Initially hailed a hero for reporting the suspicious knapsack and then helping clear bystanders from the area before it exploded, saving many people from injury or death, Richard Jewell was subsequently vilified just three days later as a potential suspect, his life and reputation torn apart in the advent of the 24-hour news cycle. Leonardo DiCaprio will play the lawyer out to clear his name. Eventually Brenner was completely exonerated and Eric Robert Rudolph was later found to have been the bomber. In 2006, Governor Sonny Perdue publicly thanked Jewell on behalf of the state of Georgia for saving the lives of those at the Olympics.
Yahoo! Movies has debuted this fantastic Mondo poster for ‘The LEGO Movie.’ Created by artist Tom Whalen, the poster features all the plucky plastic heroes — including DC Comics’ Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman — and block-headed villains of the new movie.
Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael said in a statement, “The film obviously comes from a place of true enthusiasm and fandom, and we tried to match that same effort and enthusiasm on the poster.” The custom design will be available in a 18″ x 24″ screenprint with a limited edition of only 475 prints. Priced at $45, the poster will be available for sale at MondoTees.com today (February 7th) at a random time during the day.

Leonardo DiCaprio & Jonah Hill To Re-Team For Film About Falsely Accused Atlanta Olympics Bomber Richard Jewell
According to Deadline, Fox has closed a deal to acquire rights to Marie Brenner’s 1997 Vanity Fair article ‘The Ballad Of Richard Jewell,’ which will be developed for Jonah Hill to play the title subject. Jewell was the security guard who discovered a backpack in the Olympics compound in Atlanta in 1996. Initially hailed a hero for reporting the suspicious knapsack and then helping clear bystanders from the area before it exploded, Jewell was subsequently vilified just three days later as a potential suspect, his life and reputation torn apart in the advent of the 24-hour news cycle. Leonardo DiCaprio will play a lawyer Jewell knew casually, a Southern attorney who mostly did real estate closings and seemed in over his head, but he guided Jewell through a hellish Twilight Zone that went on even after the FBI officially cleared Jewell’s name three months later.
Marie Brenner, whose Vanity Fair article was the original source material for the Michael Mann-directed tobacco whistle-blower tale ‘The Insider,’ accompanied Richard Jewell and his attorney just as it finally became clear he had nothing to do with placing the bomb. The film will be produced by Appian Way’s DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran, Hill and Kevin Misher, the latter of whom brought in the article. Eventually Brenner was completely exonerated and Eric Robert Rudolph was later found to have been the bomber. In 2006, Governor Sonny Perdue publicly thanked Jewell on behalf of the state of Georgia for saving the lives of those at the Olympics.
