Some Other Crap That Happened...

December 5, 2007

bond-villain-amalric.jpg- Adam Brody has been more-or-less confirmed as The Flash in Justice League of America. In related news, I've added a dash more paprika to my pot of boiled shit. [Cinematical]

- Rudy and Hoosiers director David Anspaugh has signed on for Phenom, the Chris Brown-starring tale of a high school basketball player who goes pro after discovering his father is the NBA's top player. No word on whether Judith Light or William Devane will be reprising their roles. [Variety]

- Edward Norton will take on the Eddie Murphy-style task of playing dual roles in Leaves of Grass, a comedic thriller written and directed by Tim Blake Nelson. According to Variety, "Norton will play identical twins, one an Ivy League classics professor and the other a hedonistic pot-smoking career criminal." And you said no one could make a stupider version of The Patty Duke Show.

- Samuel L. Jackson has signed on to star in Unfinished Country, where he'll play "the chief administrator of an overcrowded hospital located in the middle of South Africa's violent Soweto ghettos." But I bet he's totally a bad-ass chief administrator of an overcrowded hospital. [Hollywood Reporter]

- French actor Mathieu Amalric (above) has scored the lead villain role in Bond 22. Also, he's won the role of "creepy sexual predator" in every Dateline reenactment from here on. [Empire]
