Lindy Booth Joins Kick-Ass 2

Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall will be the next big superhero movie to feature a large gathering of heroes stopping crime.

John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut and Robert Emms will be joining Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz to thwart crime and evil and stop the Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) dead in his tracks. News that Jim Carrey was being courted to join the cast as The Colonel, the leader of Justice Forever, was pretty big. So its time to take it down a few notches.

According to reports, Lindy Booth is in negotiations to play Night Bitch, a once normal girl who decides to become a hero herself after she finds out that her sister has been murdered.

Jim Carrey May Star In Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall

Now that Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall is scheduled for summer release next year, production for the film is shortly getting underway. The cast, however, continues to grow. Recently John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut, and Robert Emms all have been cast in key roles, but Universal is looking to add another big name to the casting sheet.

Deadline says that the studio has been courting Jim Carrey for a “showy” supporting role in the film. According to the site, Carrey would play The Colonel, a hero who “helps galvanize the team of misfit super heroes assembled to fight evil.”

Kick-Ass Header

Last month we reported that Lionsgate had relinquished their hold on rights for Kick-Ass and that Universal had bought the rights to it. They immediately hired Never Back Down director Jeff Wadlow to helm the sequel to the ultra blood-gushing adaption of the Mark Millar comic of the same name. But before moving forward with production for the sequel, they had the get the cast back together. Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse had all been vocal about their interest to return to the franchise and now they are making the first step to do so.

According to Deadline, the three actors are now all in various stages of negotiations to reprise their respective roles. Since there was no option for a sequel, new deals have to be drawn up. Johnson, Moretz, and Mintz-Plasse would reprise Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, and the Red Mist, respectively.

Movie Review: Tim Burton’s ‘Dark Shadows’

Dark Shadows Theatrical PosterDark Shadows
Directed By: Tim Burton
Written By: Seth Grahame-Smith
Starring: Johnny Depp, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloë Moretz, Helena Bonham Carter, Jonny Lee Miller, Jackie Earle Haley, Bella Heathcote, Christopher Lee and Alice Cooper
Distributed By: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated: PG-13
Release Date: May 11, 2012

“His name was Barnabas Collins, and he was the finest man this family ever knew.”

With its unique blend of gothic intrigue, romance, and melodrama, Dark Shadows staked the soap opera status quo in the heart in the late 1960s. The series, which ran from 1966-1971, was unprecedented in daytime television for its supernatural stories filled with vampires, ghosts, witches, werewolves, and the occasional zombie or warlock. My mother would race home from high school to watch Dark Shadows, hypnotized into submission by Barnabus Collins (Jonathan Frid), 18th-century vampire and master of Collinwood Manor. With its blood-and-thunder performances and atmospheric interiors, Dark Shadows became a pop culture phenomena with 1,225 television episodes and numerous films, novels, comics, and audio dramas dedicated to the Collins family.

For those dying to revisit the creaky, cobwebbed halls of Collinwood Manor, director Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood) has resurrected Dark Shadows as a 113-minute gothic comedy, written by New York Times best-selling novelist Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter).

Carrie

A remake of the 1976 Stephen King adaptation, Carrie, has been in the works for a bit now, and a star is already in place with Kick-Ass and Let Me In star Chloe Moretz set for the lead role.

Equally important will be the casting of Carrie’s mother, whom it appears Columbia Pictures is looking to cast next. According to sources, the studio is “speaking closely” with four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore for the role.

Chloe Moretz

In the past two years alone she’s played an ass-kicking superhero and a blood-sucking vampire. Now it looks like Chloe Moretz has a date to a prom and a burning high school in her screen future.

The young actress, best known for playing Hit Girl in the violent action-comedy Kick-Ass as well as the haunting horror film Let Me In and most recently Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning 3D fantasy Hugo, has just been confirmed for the title role in the new film version of Carrie. Based on Stephen King‘s first novel published in 1974, Carrie was adapted for the screen in 1976 by filmmaker Brian DePalma with Sissy Spacek in the title role of a shy high school student who uses her emerging telekinetic powers to take revenge on her tormentors. Both Spacek and Piper Laurie, who played Carrie’s religious fanatic mother, earned Academy Award nominations for their performances.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Over the past few years, while they haven’t come into the fold in the numbers one would truly like to see (I could probably count the amount of films directed by them in 2011 on two hands) female filmmakers have not only begun to earn more respect in the film world, but hell, they’ve even won Oscars.

And sure, she may not be a director as deft as someone like Kathryn Bigelow, but one of the more interesting female filmmakers around is one Karyn Kusama. A filmmaker with a distinct visual eye, Kusama is best known for the underrated horror oddity Jennifer’s Body and her first film, the shockingly good Girlfight (and no, I won’t be mentioning a certain Charlize Theron picture she also helmed). Now however, we know who will be leading the way for her next one, The Rut.
