Casting Things: Hathaway, Rockwell, Mara, Theron, Transforming Robots
- Anne Hathaway, Chloe Moretz, Sam Rockwell, and Mark Webber are reportedly in talks to join a comedy called Laggies. Hathaway would do her emoting as a perpetual adolescent who pretends to be on a work retreat but is actually hiding out with her 16-year-old best friend (Moretz) after panicking at boyfriend Webber's proposal. Hey, I love movies where Anne Hathaway does or does not get married!
- Kate Mara is said to be joining Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, and Rebecca Hall in Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister's directorial debut, Transcendence. In the Nolan tradition, the plot is being kept secret, forcing us to keep assuming everyone is playing the Riddler/Ladyriddler.
- Michael Bay has added another non-car-robot to his fourth Transformers movie, confirming that The Last Airbender star Nicola Peltz's résumé isn't getting any less shitty.
- Charlize Theron is following up Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways To Die in the West with something less likely to feature a man having sex with a horse, signing on to produce and star in an untitled crime feature from The Killing series writer Dan Nowak.
