BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Desplechin recently helmed the excellent A Christmas Tale, and earlier maneuvered the underrated King & Queen, so the idea of him reuniting with Amalric and pitting him across from Del Toro is more than enough to get us into a theater for Jimmy Picard.
Now instead of facing off against Rian Johnson's genre-blending hitman flick Looper, Savages will be the only film daring to take on The Amazing Spider-Man for the July 4th weekend, a slot traditionally awarded to the summer's biggest or most family-friendly adventure movies
While the Oscar winning actor did go into negotiations with the people behind the next Star Trek movie, talks have fallen apart over monetary issues. Even more interesting is that apparently the deal went sour on Wednesday, two days before the Khan rumor surfaced. The report says that the production will now quickly try to find a replacement, as the film is scheduled to begin lensing at the start of next year.
I know some of you have voiced support for "Benicio as Khan," but it's really for the best if it's not true. By doing a reboot on an alternate timeline, the creators of the new Star Trek opened up an endless number of possibilities. If they had chosen to do Khan again it would simply be a remake of Wrath of Khan and what's the point of that?
Back in early November, Star Trek fans started going nuts when it was reported that J.J. Abrams was keen on casting Benicio Del Toro as the central villain in his upcoming sequel to the 2009 sci-fi blockbuster hit. There was a problem, however: the report didn't say what character the Oscar winner would play. The internet became an endless stream of speculation, with Trekies speculating everything from Klingons to Tribbles (yes, I did actually read a comment that suggested Tribbles).
The word broke earlier this month that J.J. Abrams had somebody specific in mind for the role of the villain in Star Trek 2: Benicio Del Toro. We still don't know what role Del Toro will be tackling if he signs on for Star Trek 2, but now Abrams has dropped a few tidbits about why he thinks Del Toro is perfect for the role...whatever that may be.
There aren't that many questions left about J.J. Abrams' next Star Trek movie. We know that the project is in active development and that Abrams is once again attached to direct. We know that the script is being written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. We know that the entire cast will be returning, from Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk to Simon Pegg as Scotty.
With the men on board Stone is now looking to set up the female roles, "casting a wide net" for the girlfriend role Lawrence was set to play, and also considering Salma Hayek for a role as the "Mexican drug cartel matriarch," though nothing is set in stone yet
Johnnyís out and the movie still exists, so director Emir Kusturica is looking for a new Pancho Villa. Blic reports that that itís a two horse race, with the production likely to go with either Benicio del Toro or Gael Garcia Bernal as their leading man. Meanwhile Salma Hayek, attached to the project when Depp was still on board, remains involved.
Earlier today it was reported that Martin Scorsese would be taking on The Wolf of Wall Street, an adaptation of the memoir by Jordan Belfort, as a project to film this summer with long-time collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio as his lead. While Scorsese is indeed once again attached to direct The Wolf of Wall Street, it will not be filming this summer.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing del Toro in a romantic role. Diaz I could take or leave, but it might be interesting to see what happens to her when paired with an actor of Del Toro's caliber
When the movie finally gets made, this is the screenplay the Farrellys are planning to use. Written by Peter Farrelly, Bobby Farrelly, and Mike Cerrone, this Three Stooges script is Stooges through and through
A movie about retired FBI agent Jack Garcia is in the works and itíll star Benicio del Toro. Peter Buchman penned the script and Steve Soderbergh, whoís currently fishing for a director, is on board to produce. The duo originally had Making Jack Falcone set up at Paramount, the studio may soon let it go.
When we all heard about a possible new Three Stooges movie with Benicio Del Toro, Jim Carrey and Sean Penn there is no way we thought it could be true. Why would they do such a horrible thing
