Am I the only one who is annoyed with the new blogger layout thingy? Ugh.

1) Biggest casting news/ controversy of the week- Chloe Moretz has been cast as Carrie White in the remake of the 1976 horror classic. The role had been made famous by the incredible Sissy Spacek. After the news broke out, I actually rewatched the film, and yes, I too cannot see Moretz playing the part of the shy and troubled teen. She would be a good Chris Hargensen if you ask me. Their hairstyles look similar as well. Apparently for the role of the dreaded Margaret White, they are trying to cast Jodie Foster or Julianne Moore. They both played Clarice Starling, which is a weird connection for this role. But I can see both of them being very good, especially Moore. So at the end of the day I am pretty against this whole project because I just know they'll have the dying students filming the prom scene in their IPhones in order to "modernise" it; and if they absolutely must do it, just cast someone more suitable for the role.

2) You know what film should be made already- a Bacall and Bogie biopic. There is a really wonderful quote by Lauren Bacall that I absolutely love, "No one has ever written a romance better than we lived it" about her stormy and passionate relationship with Humphrey Bogart. If that ain't a basis to make a movie, I don't know what is. Also they should make it now because Emma Stone HAS to play Bacall. She can do the voice and they even look similar. She was born to play this part and we will have to wait many, many years to get someone this perfect again (the reason I am so freely giving out MY ideas). For Bogart, I think Johnny Depp or even Viggo Mortensen would be ideal. He was less classically handsome, however swoon-worthy still, and a real man. Make this happen you lazy bums at Hollywood. Please!

3) So I was looking at my Youtube homepage for trailers because no big trailer has been released this week as everyone is too busy watching The Hunger Games, and I came across the news that Liam Neeson will be appearing in The Dark Knight Rises as his character from Batman Begins, Ra's Al Ghul. I am totally blanking here- did he not die in the film? Anyways, I'm so excited for TDKR *insert teenage girl scream*!!

4) While Moretz as Carrie as the biggest casting news, the BEST casting news of the week is that Stanley Tucci will be co-starring with Emma Watson in David Yates's Your Voice in My Head! I had originally been a bit against this project, but casting the absolutely lovely Tucci in place of people like George Clooney and Tom Hanks is such a huge plus point. I love Stanley Tucci. His characters make me happy. From The Devil Wears Prada to The Terminal, and even Captain America, he always brings something to the table. His super creepy role in The Lovely Bones too made me smile... a bit... at the start. He is my favourite underrated actor and it is simply superb that he is getting to be a lead in a film like this. Of course my favourite underrated lead actor is Ewan McGregor. When will they understand his worth? (And unfortunately, that is mostly a rhetorical question).

5) Did I say there were no big trailers this week? Scratch that- a HUGE trailer, i.e., the teaser to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, part 2 has been released *insert a truckload of teenage girls' screams*!!! Oh good lord. Edward actually says the words, "We're the same temperature now." That is possibly the WORST line I have ever heard in a film. The only response I can come up with to that would be "Ha ha ha. What a story, Mark," from the epic, The Room. This line has never been used more appropriately than here. 

6) Finally, this is funny but also sadly true-
I don't know why but this makes me think of all the remakes that *will* take place in the future...

Bye kids.


  1. A Bacall-Bogart biopic would be amazing, I am totally up for it!
    Also, that last thing, with Seth Myers, is cool!

    1. I know right! Me too.
      Seth Myers is the best!

  2. I've never thought of it before but Emma Stone would totes be an amazing choice for Lauren Bacall!!! I'd pick Viggo over Depp to play Bogart though :P Gotta love the man who played Aragorn (I will always remember him for that, haha)
    Is it odd that I'm kinda hoping that's how NASA will inform us of an Alien encounter? Or else it could be a really cool First Contact like in Close Encounters or uhmmm...well, Star Trek: First Contact, lol.
    Everything Edward Cullen says is immediately idiotic, unfortunately for Pattinson. Poor dear, he really is trying!

    1. I know right. She put on the voice for this interview once, and I was like 'THIS IS DESTINY!'
      Viggo will be great, but he looks a bit too old for the role in my eyes. I need Depp to get back on track, so I'll pick him :P
      Haha. Well they can have a nice eloquent speech and also a fun tweet.
      Everything Edward says *is* immediately idiotic, but this is a whole new level of ridiculous. I know, poor RPatz. I hope Cosmopolis works out.
