- Isabelle Furhman, who played Clove in Hunger Games and Orphan's orphan, has landed the lead in the Suspiria remake David Gordon Green has long demanded to make. Dario Argento's 1977 horror focused on a dancer who discovers her new academy is secretly a coven of witches, but looking at Green's recent filmography, there's a very good Furhman's character will just encounter a wacky drug plot and actors indebted to Judd Apatow.
- James Badge Dale has joined Iron Man 3 as Eric Savin, a U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel who, in the comics, becomes a cyborg commando known as Coldblood. FINALLY Coldblood gets his chance in the spotlight, his chance to be the character who is named Coldblood that we all know and love.
- Jessica Biel is in talks to play one of the leads in the romantic comedy My Owner's Wedding. The film concerns two women fighting to marry a man, and its title stems from the fact that there will apparently be a dog injecting itself into matters. Someone is at last correcting the mistake of not giving Marmaduke a love triangle.
- Matthew Saville is attached to direct Felony, with a script and lead performance coming from Joel Edgerton. The Warrior star will play a decorated officer who has a few, runs a cyclist off the road and lies about it, "changing all their lives forever." If for some reason that means the bicyclist starts getting seriously into parkour, I know just the guy.
- James Franco is ready to once again get into some biopic homoeroticism by starring as photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in the aptly-titled Mapplethorpe. And that Franco-esque shape when you blink? That's just a negative Franco burnt into your retinas.
- Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon's long-delayed Cabin in the Woods will at last premiere at SXSW as the opening night film. Prepare yourself for The Truman Show, as run by stock hillbilly murderer archetypes, I think!
- Ethan Hawke is attached to star in Vigilandia, a sci-fi thriller that presumably includes satirical sketches about the eco-conscious hipster culture of futuristic Vigiland.
- James Badge Dale is reportedly the frontrunner to play the eponymous hero's brother in Disney's The Lone Ranger, as the Lone Ranger is only "lone" insomuch as if you disregard Native American companions and immediate family.
Saving the Lone Ranger wardrobe department from having to purchase one more cowboy hat, Dwight Yoakam will play Butch Cavendish, leader of the Cavendish gang and the primary villain of Disney's upcoming Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp-starring film, reports Variety. Also in talks for the film, joining Tom Wilkinson's "railroad tycoon" and Ruth Wilson's "female", are Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, and Helena Bonham Carter. Pepper would play Captain J. Fuller, leader of the seventh cavalry, while Dale would play Dan Reid, the Lone Ranger's older brother and head of the Texas Rangers back in the days before Walker came around and cleaned things up. Carter's deal is reportedly in the earliest talks, but if it pans out, she'd play "the colorful madam of a local brothel," bringing some light-hearted eccentricity to the flesh trade. It's about time.
