Colin Firth Offered The Villain Role In Spike Lee's Oldboy Remake
I feel I say this every time I write up a story about the Oldboy remake, but here it goes again: I still don't understand why they are making this movie, but at least they are putting in every effort to make sure that it's the best movie they can make. The quality of actors that they're going for is off the charts, however, I do still have my reservations about Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell) writing the script.

Kristin Lehman Joins Colin Firth In Arthur Newman, Golf Pro
One of the characters that was high on my list of suspects for the murder of teen Rosie Larson in AMCís The Killing was Kristin Lehmanís character Gwen Eaton. From the sound of the new role Lehmanís character is playing in the upcoming film Arthur Newman, Golf Pro, itís doubtful sheíll be a murder suspect at any point, but there is death involved... sort of.

Gary Oldman To Direct Colin Firth In Unnamed Remake
Even though Oldman has appeared in a great many genre films, I wouldnít hold out much hope that heís remaking a fantasy epic or a sci-fi classic. Later in this same interview he speaks about favoring working in films without special effects. Oldman is a classically trained actor who worked for years in British theater before making the leap to film. In fact, the reason heís racked up such an impressive resume of genre roles is because his extensive theater training allows him to completely transform himself

Colin Firth And Tom Hardy Get Encoded In Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Posters
Speaking of mystery, does Tom Hardy not look weirdly like Brad Pitt in Moneyball in this poster, with the floppy blond hair? Look at this image and tell me they couldn't at least be brothers on some kind of mission together. And even if you're not down with my theory, take a look at the two new posters below

New Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Stills Show Off Tom Hardy, Colin Firth And Gary Oldman
For the last decade almost every British actor you can name has played a part in the Harry Potter franchise. From John Cleese to Kenneth Branagh to Rhys Ifans, J.K. Rowling's wizarding world has prevented many thespians from unemployment. Sadly, the run of Potter films end this summer, but movies like Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy are here to show that there will always be a room for British ensemble pieces.

Stanley Tucci And Cloris Leachman Join Gambit, Plus First Look At Cameron Diaz And Colin Firth Together
It's still a little hard to believe that, as his follow-up to his Oscar-winning role in The King's Speech, Colin Firth will be starring in a caper comedy. Oh, and he's starring opposite Cameron Diaz. Oh, and the script was written by the Coen Brothers, and will be directed by The Last Station's Michael Hoffman

Colin Firth And Emily Blunt Will Steal Identities In An Untitled Black Comedy
Colin Firth is already set to star in Gambit, his follow-up to The King's Speech that's about as different from an Oscar-winning period drama as you can get-- a caper in which he stars opposite Cameron Diaz as a thief. And Firth seems in no hurry to get back to serious dramas either

Alan Rickman Will Be Colin Firth's Mark In The Caper Comedy Gambit
As Colin Firth's follow-up to his Oscar-winning The King's Speech role and a caper comedy written by the Coen Brothers, Gambit is sneakily becoming one of my more anticipated movies of the next year or so. A remake of the 60s comedy that starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine

Renee Zellweger May Have Agreed To A Third Bridget Jones Film
It's easy to see why Zellweger would want to return to one of her career high points, given that she hasn't had anything approximating a hit since 2005's Cinderella Man, but that's pretty much the only reason I can think of for this movie to exist

Photographic Evidence That The King's Speech Was Shot On The Same Set As A Gay Porn
It's hilarious, yes, especially because director Tom Hooper and stars Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush have frequently joked that the movie is kind of a bromance between the King and his therapist. But it also raises some questions about the film's art direction, which could quite possibly win an Oscar for production designer Eve Stewart.

Colin Firth Could Star Opposite Carey Mulligan In My Fair Lady
Firth had been a favorite of producers Duncan Kenworthy and Cameron Mackintosh years ago, but the studio reportedly wanted someone more famous along the lines of Hugh Grant. Now, of course, Firth is a guaranteed Best Actor winner and star of the hugely successful The King's Speech, and fickle Sony wants him back.

Cameron Diaz Starring Opposite Colin Firth In Coens-Scripted Gambit
Shooting starts in London this May, giving Firth enough time to properly polish his Oscar and return to normal life for a bit. He's a co-star a far step up from Diaz's latest work

Listen To The Actual Speech From The King's Speech
I find this amazing not only because it's cool to hear how similar Firth's performance is to the real thing, but that that's the actual King's voice, coming from the past and suddenly seeming not so far away at all.

Behold The Awful Majesty Of The King's Speech Poster
