What Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel will be and won’t be
Alien director Ridley Scott has talked more about the proposed prequel movie he’ll be directing, and it’s not what you expect.
“It’s a brand new box of tricks,” said Sir Ridley. “We know what the road map is, and the screenplay is now being put on paper. The prequel will be a while ago. It’s very difficult to put a year on Alien, but [for example] if Alien was towards the end of this century, then the prequel story will take place thirty years prior.”
‘Hannibal Lecter’ will be Thor’s daddy
The cast of director Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming Thor movie just gets more interesting: Captain Kirk’s dad is going to play Marvel’s hammer-wielding Norse god, and now comes news that Hannibal Lecter himself, Anthony Hopkins, will play Thor’s big daddy: Odin, king of Asgard, Variety reports.
Makes sense: Hopkins has played kings before, notably Hrothgar in Bob Zemeckis’ cartoon Beowulf.
According to Variety, Hopkins will pay father to both Thor (Star Trek‘s Chris Hemsworth) and his brother, the trickster god Loki, played by Tom Hiddelston. Queen Amidala, Natalie Portman, is Thor’s love interest, the mortal human Jane Foster.
Confirmed: Charlize Theron will star in Mad Max 4
According to Variety:
Charlize Theron is revving up for Mad Max: Fury Road, with producer-director George Miller set to start filming next August in Australia.British actor Tom Hardy (Black Hawk Down) will also star opposite Theron. Thesps are the first major castings announced in the fourth version of the futuristic Mad Max franchise, which has been dormant for 2 1/2 decades.
There’s still no news on the story (written by Miller), which characters Theron and Hardy will portray, or whether or not Mel Gibson will have any parts (big or small).
