DiCaprio Might Play Romantic-Assassin, Ellen Page Surviving the Apocalypse, and More
Hey, casting news! Better look, so you'll know who will be in the things.
- Leonardo DiCaprio has reportedly come on to produce and possibly star in Warner Bros. adaptation of the Jo Nesbo thriller Blood in the Snow. The actor would potentially play an assassin given task of killing his boss's wife; instead, he ends up falling for her. Oh why must we always fall in love with the things we're trying to shoot?
- Hey, do you like post-apocalyptic tales of survival!? You sure do, Hollywood assures us yet again, this time by casting Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood in an adaptation of Jean Hegland's Into the Forest, a 1998 novel about sisters surviving in the northern California wilderness after the collapse of society. Exactly how the series Sister, Sister should have ended.
- John Krasinski is joining the cast of Cameron Crowe's latest, but not as the relatable everyman you just assumed once you heard John Krasinski and Cameron Crowe. He'll reportedly join Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel, Alec Baldwin, and Bill Murray to play "a military man married to McAdams, who is playing Cooper's ex-wife." Guy's really got a thing for taking someone else's significant other.
- Tony winner Billy Magnussen and The Fall's Jamie Dornan are reportedly two actors on the shortlist to take over from Charlie Hunnum the coveted role of Christian Grey. Please picture one of them next time you're breathlessly reading 50 Shades of Grey.
