The Giver's First Look Features A Bearded Jeff Bridges And Brenton Thwaites With Child
Of all the novels getting the big-screen treatment in 2014, arguably the most anticipated and indeed worrisome is Philip Noyce’s adaptation of Lois Lowry’s universally beloved 1993 children’s novel The Giver, which will be taking audiences into the world of Sameness this summer.
Albert Brooks Joins All-Star Cast For Mark Osborne's The Little Prince
Unfortunately, as with most of the other actors, there’s no real sign of who Brooks will be voicing, and it’s only mentioned that he’ll play “one of the film’s villains.” That’s a strange description, since there aren’t any real villains in The Little Prince, so to speak.
Jeff Bridges Takes On Evil In First Trailer For Fantasy Adventure Seventh Son
The film is based on the fantasy series The Wardstone Chronicles by Joseph Delaney and it set back in the 18th century. The story centers on a young man named Thomas Ward (Barnes) who, as the seventh son of a seventh son, serves as an apprentice to Master John Gregory (Bridges), an aging spook who fights evil spirits and is looking toward retirement.
James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Jeff Bridges And More Cast In The Little Prince
For those unfamiliar with the book, the plot centers on a pilot who crashes in the Sahara desert and miraculously comes across a young boy who claims to hail from an asteroid and has fallen to Earth. The pilot fixes his plane and tries to get it ready for flight again while the boy tells him stories about his homeworld. Sources have informed THR that Bridges will be providing the voice of the pilot, but fails to mention who the rest of the actors will be portraying.
Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal Or Jeff Bridges Could Replace Jude Law In Jane Got A Gun
It's interesting to note that both Gyllenhaal and Maguire starred with Portman in the 2009 drama Brothers, but Bridges seems to be a bit of a wild card in this situation. Isn't he just a tad old to be playing a former lover of a 31 year old? Perhaps they have re-writes in mind.
Jeff Bridges And Michael Douglas Up For Comedy Dirty Grandpa
As leading men age, they often fall into one of two categories: the distinguished older gentleman like Connery, and the goofy grandpa with a lovable but gruff demeanor like William Shatner. Curiously, it is a man from each category that's up for Universal's in-development comedy Dirty Grandpa, which follows the likely R-rated exploits on an uptight, soon-to-be wedded young man and his lusty, widowed grandfather during a spring break in Florida that neither is likely to forget
Olivia Williams Signs On To The Seventh Son
Williams, best known for her role as the central figure in Rushmore's May-December-squared love triangle, will make a major mark at the movies this year. She's just wrapped on Hyde Park on Hudson, where she portayed Eleanor Roosevelt opposite her Rushmore paramour Bill Murray, and will also appear in Joe Wright's highly anticipated adaptation of Anna Karenina, playing Countess Vronskaya.
Prison Break's Rob Knepper Joins Ryan Reynolds In R.I.P.D.
It’s never too late to add cast members to your movie. R.I.P.D. has been filming in Boston for a couple weeks now with Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges taking the lead, but Prison Break’s Rob Knepper, says THR, has just signed on to play one of the baddies, which by this point in his career he should be pretty used to.
Jeff Bridges And Ryan Reynolds Suit Up In R.I.P.D. Set Pics
R.I.P.D. is currently filming in Boston under the steady hand of Robert Schwentke, who gave us Red, and Celebuzz! was on hand to snap some shots of the two leads strutting around the street getting ready to take some zombies down
Victoria's Secret Model Marisa Miller Will Play Jeff Bridges In R.I.P.D.
Miller isn't a total newcomer to acting, having appeared on How I Met Your Mother and Entourage, but this role actually seems pretty demanding, especially if she's supposed to act like Bridges himself while standing in for him on earth. Robert Schwentke, who last made another action comedy RED
Join Jeff Bridges, John Goodman And Steve Buscemi To Celebrate The Big Lebowski Blu-Ray
Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and T. Bone Burnett are scheduled to attend the event, which takes place Tuesday, Aug. 16 and also serves as the launch party for Bridges’ self-titled album, which Burnett produced. (What, Tara Reid was too busy?)
Comic Con 2011: Guillermo Del Toro Shows Off Pacific Rim Logo, Title Treatment
Our very own Katey Rich live-blogged the Legendary panel, where she captured -- according to director Guillermo del Toro -- the official logo for Pacific Rim, which he said would involve “giant fucking robots versus giant fucking monsters.”
Jeff Bridges And Nikki Silver To Try And Bring Lois Lowry's The Giver To The Big Screen
As much as I've wanted this film to get made, I do understand why it's taken so long to make the leap to the silver screen. For one thing, the film will likely be almost entirely black-and-white (though it will gain more and more color as the story goes on) and there's some disturbing imagery that might make the material unsuitable for its target audience.
Jeff Bridges Officially Attached To Star With Ryan Reynolds In R.I.P.D.
Thanks to True Grit and Tron: Legacy, you couldn't drive more than a couple miles in a city without seeing Jeff Bridges' face on a billboard somewhere. A great selling point thanks to his Oscar win for his performance in Crazy Heart, the guy saturated the market to such a degree that it was surprising he only had two movies coming out.
The New Big Lebowski Blu-Ray Really Brings The Room Together

Universal Studios Home Entertainment has released full details for the August 16th release, which will package the remastered flick with a 28-page companion book and new bonus features. Even the nihilists will love it.
