1). Nominee for an Oscar, Jeremy Renner will play a major role in the film of Tony Gilroy "The Bourne Legacy". Renner hero - just like Jason Bourne, a hardened agent of last government program - even more serious than that which was tested by the character Matt Damon.
Despite the name, the film has nothing to do with the eponymous book by Robert Ludlum - creator of the Bourne series. It is noteworthy that for Renner it is not the last time when his projects are associated with a spy theme - besides, he was shot in the fourth part of "Mission: Impossible." Widely popularity an actor received after winning an Oscar for Kathryn Bigelow's film "Hurt Locker."
Among other contenders for the role were Dominic Cooper, Luke Evans, Joel Edgerton and star of the movie "Tron: The Legacy" Garrett Hedlund.
Matt Damon insisted that his return is possible only if Paul Greengrass will shoot "Bourne Legacy", with whom he worked on the second and third films.
The movie production with Tony Gilroy will start in September.
2). Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones will perform a role of villain in the film "Rock of ages". She will play the overly conservative lady, not relocating rock 'n' roll and in every way conducive to eradicating this style in Los Angeles. Director Adam Shankman describes the character of Zeta-Jones as a "child of Tipper Gore and Anita Bryant (both women are known for their conservative views).
For the actress participation in musicals is not a novelty: for her role in "Chicago" Catherine was awarded an Oscar as best female character in the second plan. Participation in the "Rock of ages" will be a big project for the actress, because after the film "No Reservations" she played mostly in few notable projects.
The film, like the musical, will be developed in 1987. A politician from Los Angeles and local activists want to clean Sunset Strip from cereal and institutions require to carry the popular Hollywood club "The Bourbon Club". Club manager Dennis Dupree (Alec Baldwin) tries to get for one night only solo defunct heavy metal band Arsenal Stacy Jax to draw attention to his club.
Filming is scheduled for May. The film is scheduled to be released in summer 2012.
