Nicole Kidman Replacing Rachel Weisz In Railway Man
With mere weeks until production begins on the WWII drama The Railway Man, its leading lady Rachel Weisz, has been forced to drop out due to an unexpected scheduling conflict. Both The Bourne Legacy and Oz: The Great and Powerful now require Weisz for additional shoot days in April, which sent producers in search of a last minute replacement. Ultimately they've swapped one gorgeous Oscar-winner for another. Nicole Kidman has signed on to the film, and will co-star opposite Colin Firth.

Colin Firth Joins Reese Witherspoon In Atom Egoyan's West Memphis 3 Drama
Filming on Devil’s Knot begins next summer in Louisiana, and Deadline claims that other big names will be announced in the coming weeks. I suppose this version of the story was inevitable, though adding Firth and Witherspoon ensures that the production is in good hands.

Colin Firth Passes On The Oldboy Remake
With the exception of Josh Brolin, who is set to play the film's lead, Spike Lee's remake of Oldboy is having a bit of trouble finding actors to fill the other roles. In recent months we've heard stories about both Christian Bale and Rooney Mara being offered the villain and female lead roles, respectively, but both ended up turning the offers down.

Rachel Weisz Hops Aboard The Railway Man With Colin Firth, Jeremy Irvine
The actress will appear alongside Firth playing Patti Wallace, Lomax’s wife who helps him heal – physically and emotionally – from his cruel, war-inflicted punishments. It’s a bigger part than you might think, as the Mail says it was Wallace who, in an effort to help her husband get over his obstacles, reached out to the men who abused him during the war while also encouraging her spouse to stand up to his demons.

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.

War Horse Star Jeremy Irvine Joining Colin Firth In The Railway Man
Irvine’s latest casting coup is landing the role of young Colin Firth in Jonathan Teplitzky’s The Railway Man. It recounts the time WWII prisoner of war Eric Lomax spent working on the Japanese Death Railway that connects Bangkok to what is now known as Yangon, Myanmar. As the story evolves, the freed Lomax will track down and confront his captors.

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 AMC’s The Killing was Kristin Lehman’s character Gwen Eaton. From the sound of the new role Lehman’s character is playing in the upcoming film Arthur Newman, Golf Pro, it’s doubtful she’ll be a murder suspect at any point, but there is death involved... sort of.

Colin Firth Hops Aboard WWII Drama The Railway Man
Firth has signed on to Jonathan Teplitzky’s The Railway Man, an adaptation of Eric Lomax’s award-winning book recounting the tortures he endured while serving in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp during WWII. The film goes on to recount Lomax’s eventual reunion with his captors on the bridge over the river Kwai, the events of which were captured in the critically acclaimed documentary Enemy My Friend.

Gary Oldman To Direct Colin Firth In Unnamed Remake
Even though Oldman has appeared in a great many genre films, I wouldn’t hold out much hope that he’s 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 he’s 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

Colin Firth's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy Trailer Kills Our Man In Istanbul
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy gathers most of the best actors in Great Britain together on screen and drops them in what appears to be the coolest possible version of a Cold War era spy movie. The film’s first international trailer has arrived, and it’s everything you could hope it would be.

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

Could we finally be getting a horror movie that could compete alongside Silence Of The Lambs in terms of acting? Looks like it.

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

Universal Picks Up Colin Firth's Next Film, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
The newly minted Oscar winner has several projects coming down the pike, including the caper comedy Gambit with Cameron Diaz, but perhaps the most anticipated is Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, a British espionage drama featuring a murderer's row of talent

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.
