Colin Firth And Emily Blunt Steal The Lives Of Others In Arthur Newman Poster
Together these two damaged people running from their pasts try to forge a bold new future. And as you might suspect from the casting of its affable stars, romance begins to bloom as they vacation in the lives and vacant homes of others. But with a premise like this, it's a far from typical love story. ”It’s not the inevitable romance, it’s not the inevitable failure to have romance,” Firth explains. “I found it followed a very truthful path about an ordinary person.”

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.

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.

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.

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
