Director Francis Lawrence is actively looking for actors for the film "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." On the role of Vayress is approved star of "Pulp Fiction", Amanda Plummer, and one of the main characters of Suzanne Collins novel can play Sam Claflin. The actor, who had just appeared on the screen in "Snow White and the hunter," claims to play Finnik Odeyra.
The second part of post-apocalyptic trilogy of Collins talks about the anniversary, the 75s Hunger Games, which should be open to all survivors in the last years tribute. Katniss Everdin and Pete Mellark forced to re-take the nightmare battle in the arena, but this time they will have accomplices.
One of the first completions of the second film was Jena Malone, recently approved for the role of Joanna Mason. Vayress, winner of the third district, which is a little out of it, will play Amanda Plummer. Fans of Quentin Tarantino remembers the actress for her role in Sweet Bunny "Pulp Fiction". In the story Vayress knows and is able to detect electrical force field, which greatly helps the main character.
Another name is mentioned in connection with the casting in the sequel to "Hunger Games". Tony Shelub, three-time winner of the "Emmy", can play inventor and craftsman of all trades Biti. He finishes all the proposals for Vayress why there is a feeling that they are the one soul and body.
Laureate award "Oscar" Melissa Leo was listed among the contenders for the role of an elderly Megz, but representatives of the actress said that she got the role.
Role of Finnik Odeyra - a handsome winner of the fourth, fishing district - is one of the most delicious in the project. A month ago there were rumors that Robert Pattinson will get it, but the actor denied. Finnik - a living legend of Panema, the youngest winner of the Hunger Games, took part in the tremendous competition for survival at 14 years. Despite the sea of fans, he remains faithful to his girlfriend Annie, who also once won the Hunger Games, but lost her mind.
Briton Sam Claflin is by far the top contender for the role of Finnik. The actor who became famous after the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," where he played a priest this year came in the form of a prince in love with Snow White in the film with Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron. Schedule of Claflin now is free, so that in case of approval on the role he will be able to start shooting in "Catching Fire" in the fall.
Note again that approval of the above actors in the project only Malone and Plummer.
Studio Summit has already started looking for third part of the director's "Hunger Games", which is already quite precisely known, will be divided into two films.
Sequel to "The First Avenger" was subtitled "Winter Soldier", the second "Thor" will be called "Dark World", and in August of 2014 we expect, "Guardians of the Galaxy." The head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Faig told about upcoming projects, presented by Robert Downey Jr. and "Iron Man 3" and Edgar Wright showed test material on "Ant-Man."
Saturday Marvel panel in the hall H Fairgrounds in San Diego was reserved for "Iron Man 3", but the studio would not have been it, if it did not show additional material for the fans. Kevin Faig said that to date in developing the following projects are studio: "Iron Man 3" (released in the United States - May 3, 2013th), "Thor: The Dark World" (November 8, 2013th), "Captain America: Winter Soldier "(April 4, 2014-go) and "The Guardians of the Galaxy"(August 1, 2014th).
Fans of comic book about Captain America immediately realized that the sequel will focus on the role of friend Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes, whose first film, played Sebastian Stan. In the second, "Thor" is the new villain, but as long as the studio does not specify who will be playing, Dane Mads Mikkelsen, who was named to this role, has refused. Another change in the "Thor": Fandral, a robust fellow of Scandinavian friend, will play Zachary Levi.
As previously reported, the studio is preparing to release in theaters entirely new team, a much more bizarre than the "Avengers". Faig introduced viewers to the concept art "Guardians of the Galaxy."
British humorist Edgar Wright reported that the superheroes in his approach, like Terrence Malick, but some publications have a suspicion that the "Ant-Man" will be the first full-fledged comedy of Marvel. Featured material was completed two weeks ago and did not apply to the upcoming film, this is only a test, which the director was engaged for several months, showing his vision of the film.
Ant-Man suit will create a prototype of the familiar amateur era of the "Silver Age" of comics with a touch of modern design. Wright said that the Ant-Man "will kick your ass inch by inch." On the cast it does not go as well as the start of filming. Edgar will begin in the autumn to shoot the last part of the trilogy "Cornett" with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. The film will be called "Edge of the World".
Tom Hardy plays the role of Bane in the final part of the trilogy by Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight 2: The Legend Continues", in an interview he spoke about the work on the role.
- I wanted to ask you the same question that you were not able to respond to the exhibition Comic-Con ...
"Perhaps I can’t answer it and now (laughs)."
- In "The Dark Knight 2" you have some accent. What did you do with your voice?
"I can not tell you. However, nothing."
- How is it to fight with Christian Bale - he a fighter, you are - a warrior? (K. Bale starred in the movie "The Fighter" and T. Hardy - in the "Warrior").
"I love working with Christian. Yes, I like to work with all. And meet again with Chris Nolan was also nice. All team members of this project are very friendly people, real professionals. When you work with Chris, you do not feel any suppression of the individual with his hand. That's fine. Therefore, all play their roles in an atmosphere of trust and peace. "
- Can you describe us your experience, during the filming in mask and costume?
"It's hot. Very, very, very hot. Yes, we all just heated. When you think about guys who are in Afghanistan, or Baghdad, and about the equipment that they have to put on, slip the idea that you have not so and bad. But, in fact, in a suit and mask, very hot and hard to breathe. "
- Is it difficult to speak when you are in mask?
"Well, I did not hear, and no one hears me. These are the things (laughs). And then the magic begins."
- Maybe saying the text, you have helped yourself by gestures, facial expressions?
"I can not talk about magic."
- Now you respect Darth Vader in a greater extent?
"(Laughs) I grew up on the original trilogy "Star Wars". But Darth Vader is cool, is not it? Very cool!"
- You knew Bain before Chris proposed you to play it or you had to get to know this character?
"I do not have direct knowledge about the world of Batman. In this regard, I am like a newborn. I'm pretty reticent man, I spent a lot of time with my dog. It is no more. Each new project - a new experience, so it all starts from the moment when I take my role. "
- There are many incarnations of Bane, but all of them remains unchanged its vitality. Nolan likes to bring a sense of the plausibility of what is happening with the bulk of characters. So, how are you going to relate to reality of Bane?
"Well, if all of Nolan's always correspond to reality, then I should take his example. Yeah."
- When you're playing Charlie Bronson, and your character in "Warrior", both of these characters were bad guys, but the bad guys, which you loved. You are experiencing the same feelings, playing Bane, or it must be an absolute villain, who can not love you because you do on the side of Batman? You play it differently than some of your other characters?
"It's a different character, so of course I figure it's not like my previous characters. I think answering this question, I can say a lot of nonsense, so I will not say anything."
- Do you have any concerns because you enter "arena" after Heath Ledger's Joker?
"No, I do not think so. This would mean that I enter into a competition with someone prominent, and in fact not a question of whose talent whose work is higher and steeper. Goal is to become better as far as possible, but not better than anyone. Clear what I mean? What made Ledger - amazing. It's true. I have a role I should play, and I'll play it. I put it clear? "
- The last franchise in which you participated, was the project of "Star Trek" ("Star Trek: Nemesis”). You generally like to contribute to the big franchises?
"Working in "Star Trek" was a real discovery for me. Then I was very young. I think it worked for about nine months when received a role in this film, and it was something incredible. Work in the project has opened my eyes at such a young age that should not be afraid to play a responsible, for example, the villain in the Batman comics or hobbit - who else. Heroes of "Star Trek" are loved by many, and, therefore, to your great responsibility. Thus, the "Star Trek" was the launching pad, and, behold, I am here - incredibly grateful for the role of villain in Batman's world, over the size and quantity, and the importance of which, if I'm thinking, you begin to really get nervous. "
- What kind of scene you're shooting today?
"I must speak with 10 thousand people. I'm a little excited (laughs). Come on, cheer me up!"
Manager of movie project Marvel Kevin Feig uttered in an interview with Empire, that the continuation of "Thor," the audience waiting for some surprises. For example, you will see a new main villain, and the plot focuses around the "other side of Asgard."
It is a sequel film by Kenneth Bran is now preparing for the next production of projects Marvel. Filming the third "Iron Man" has already started, well, all "Thor" will come in August.
Both films will be released in 2013, filling schedule of Marvel, which is now calculated on the two paintings a year. The exception was "The Avengers", which in 2012 will remain the only project of the company. As confessed Feig, he did not expect a triumph: "I was just hoping that we will beat the results of the second "Iron Man". It was the biggest launch for all films of Marvel. Something about 80-90 million. But when they started coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday night the numbers, they just grew and grew, and in such amounts, in which I would in a million years have believed. "
The new "Thor," the audience will expect some differences from the first film, though not in all: "We are going to look at the other side of Asgard, in the sequel, it will not be as shiny and golden. The events of "Avengers" will affect the Thor, of course. His relationship with Loki will continue to evolve, and the important role will play Natalie. Thor returns with Jane Foster, "- said in an interview Feig.
In title scene of "Avengers" of Marvel has appeared a villain Thanos, but as it turned out, his new line of "Thor," the creators will not develop, "No, this is the future. But there will be a new main villain. The main antagonist is a new and ambitious. "
However, whether this negative character in relation to the rumors about the involvement of the Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen in the project, so long remained unclear.
The director of the second "Thor" will be Alan Taylor. The initial phase will start filming in London.
Now Gary Ross and studio Lionsgate finally parted, the continuation of "Hunger Games", entitled "Catching Fire" is orphaned. Studio is looking for a new director, but the network has leaked the names of those who Lionsgate wants to see in the director's chair. Among them is David Cronenberg.
A list of suitable directors was formed very quickly. Only on Monday held talks with Ross, on Tuesday published a press release about its withdrawal from the franchise, but on the night of Friday, there were the names of directors, which the studio plans to drum to the staging of "Catching Fire".
The main requirement for the future of the director - the ability to work quickly (filming begins in August) and the author of novels like Susan Collins, who is more interested in quality film than in the director's ability to hire a hit off.
In the list of seven to eight directors, all men. Today we know three names: Alfonso Cuarón, Alejandro González Iñárritu and David Cronenberg.
Alfonso Cuaron is now engaged in a protracted post-production "Gravity" with George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. The picture should get released in late November. According to knowledgeable people in the project an incredible amount of special effects, so the work will last a long time, almost to the release of the tape. But even after finishing post-production, Cuaron is free: the director will need to be involved in the advertising of the picture - to go to premieres and interviews. Of course, all memory of the third film in the Harry Potter series, which performed admirably Cuaron, but if the director wants to take part in another studio project - the big question.
How can be interested David Cronenberg for shooting of "Catching Fire", it is difficult to imagine. Despite the fact that the director used entirely commercial project "Dangerous Method," his new film "Cosmopolis" returns to the screen the audience more familiar Cronenberg - with bizarre images, violence and nudity. However, the action sequel "Hunger Games" is almost an entire book develops in the arena, so that the idea of Cronenberg could remove a very bloody movie. But such a scenario is excluded from ranking. Finally, whether the director's time? The director of "Fly" recently signed up for a TV project about the forefather of modern surgery and must shoot the pilot of the television series.
Work schedule Alejandro González Iñárritu seems relatively free. Director decided not to shoot western and for his painting "The True Story of a fake lie," he has not found funding. Interestingly, Iñárritu seems most plausible candidate of the named trio: producer of "Hunger Games" John Kylix working with Alejandro on the dramas "Babel" and "Beautiful."
Producers of franchise should also pay attention to Takashi Miike, who takes a very quick and bloody.
The decision on the choice, producers of Lionsgate will take in the coming weeks.
Theater owners congregate in Las Vegas for a convention CinemaCon, ambiguously estimated 10 minutes of the film Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit", submitted after the opening words of the director. Despite the increased clarity, filmed and shown at 48 frames per second, and many are unhappy.
The presentation touched on various Warner studio projects, including "Dark Shadows" by Tim Burton, "The Great Gatsby" Baz Luhrmann and "The Dark Knight: The Legend Continues" by Christopher Nolan.
Timur Bekmambetov received an award as best foreign film director working in Hollywood. The award was presented by Tim Burton, the producer of the upcoming movie Timur "President Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."
"Timur Bekmambetov - one of the few directors who can make the Russian film understandable and attractive to the world" - said the managing director of CinemaCon Mitch Neuhauser.
Coming on the scene, Tim Burton joked that he could not imagine who of directors may be better to make a film about an American president, rather than Russian. Accepting the award, Bekmambetov said a few words about a new project: "This is a very unusual film. Not a sequel nor prequel. It's a different story about the great man who changed the world in the nineteenth century. "
But back to Peter Jackson. For years, filmmakers have made films at 24 frames per second, but when James Cameron said that the continuation of "Avatar" will shoot at 48 frames per second, the film industry has a serious cause for reflection. The first initiative supported by Cameron Jackson, began to work on the "Hobbit" at double speed.
Since the director is in New Zealand, he wrote an appeal to the visitors of CinemaCon, which read: "The new rate gives the illusion of real life, the movements are smoothed out and lost strobe effect." Indeed, 10 minutes, is shown after Jackson appeared. The first frame in which the camera flies over the rock, struck viewers clarity - even documentaries about nature, can not be removed with such quality.
However, when it came to the emergence of actors in costumes, the effect is somewhat blurry. Every movement of the characters were so clear that many of the audience began to complain of a lack of cinematic seen. "It looks like a TV movie - said one of the projectionist blog LA Times. - Too reliable, too clearly. In contrast, something is wrong - or dark or too bright. "
One of Los Angeles reacted to what he saw Booker with great enthusiasm, but said: "The question is whether audiences are ready to watch such realistic films. I expected a small difference, but it was great! Will this affect the narrative? I do not know. But judging by the ten minutes I will not. "
The realism of "The Hobbit" recalled one owner of a small chain of movie theaters effects blu-ray: «When I first saw the movie on blu-ray, we noticed that the heat is gone perception. The whole movie seemed to me material about the shooting, shot at a normal video camera. " Among other comparisons, and called soap operas, which are captured on video.
Jackson has another eight months before release, and it is likely to respond to words such as visitors CinemaCon. But now a new technology begins to cause skepticism, both in time and promoted by James Cameron 3D.
Career of once popular actor Mel Gibson in Hollywood can not return to normal after a series of scandals. Mel Gibson and now at the center of the proceedings with screenwriter Joe Esterhas. But Mel does not care about the reputation of Robert Rodriguez: director called him in his film "Machete kills."
The picture will be blockbuster sequel to "Machete" which, in turn, resulted from the specially shot trailer for "Graindhouse" Rodriguez and Tarantino.
The film with a budget of 20 million was released in 2010 and earned a world of more than $ 44 million. Note that the sale of the film on home video has made Rodriguez continue the adventure bruising life of the agent. The director spoke about plans for the sequel, which should have been called "Machete kills" and "Machete kills again ... In space! ".
"Machete kills" along with Rodriguez is producing Alexander Rodnyansky. Filming begins in the near future. "Machete" Rodriguez shot the pair with Ethan Manikis, but the sequel is going to do himself.
"Let's see, maybe we need a second director, if I have to work on “Sin City 2"- says Robert. - Everything will depend on how will go shooting of "Machete kills." While there is a feeling that we can handle quickly. "
The director admits that he likes the script, so he gladly remove "Machete kills" on their own. By the way, to the sequel will return Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez. Robert is also planning to call in the draft Michelle Williams. The main role is still played by Danny Trejo.
What is the role of Mel Gibson suggested, has not been disclosed. We only know that it is not the most important. Interestingly, the fall of 2010 Gibson had nearly returned to the big screen in a major Hollywood project. Mel offered the role of the owner of a tattoo parlor in the comedy "The Hangover 2", but, after the actors protested, Todd Phillips decided not to risk.
Now Gibson has once again found himself in the center of the scandal. Screenwriter Joe Esterhas has threatened to make public a tape on which Mel is back in a dangerous direction: swearing, threats and anti-Semitism.
As often happens, Hollywood runs ahead and preparing the sleigh is not even in the summer, and the previous spring. "The new Spider-Man" will be released in the U.S. only 3 July, and Sony back in March of 2011 has hired James Vanderbilt write the script to the the sequel. However, his work will not be final: This week the studio has invited Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, so they rewrote the further adventures of updated Peter Parker.
The sequel is scheduled for May 2, 2014. Picture production scheduled for the first quarter of 2013th. All this testifies to the confidence the studio in a good reception "New Spider-Man" and its large gatherings. James Vanderbilt, who became one of the writers restarted franchise, working on the fourth part of the "Spider-Man," which was shot with the old structure - Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire.
The second film starring Andrew Garfield in the role of Peter Parker will not be complete without the help of the duo Kurtzman-Orci. Natives School JJ Abrams, the guys worked on his TV series "Alias," and composed his own screenplay for the film "Mission: Impossible 3" and "Star Trek" as well as a hand to the draft "Transformers" and "Cowboys and Aliens."
This year, Alex Kurtzman has a directorial debut with the melodrama "People like us."
"Alex and Bob has a unique ability to prescribe different characters and spectacular action scenes, - says producer Matt Tolmach. - They have a very interesting approach to the franchise. "
In addition, producer Avi Arad believes the writers understand what makes Peter Parker is not just a superhero and a hero to us all.
In a statement, Kurtzman and Orci said: "We grew up big fans of Spider-Man, so for us to work on this franchise - is like a holy grail."
The latest duo work is on the screenplay "Star Trek 2." In addition, Alex and Roberto are producing movies, including "Ender's Game" and "Now I have seen."

In America, "The human centipede" has not received release deals, so that was shown in New York and several theaters. The reaction of the public, gazed at various film festivals, and reached the gag reflex. Tom Six realized that he had a hit on his hands, and took the second film.

In the language of English idioms, they have to grow eggs. In a figurative sense.
Tom Six is planning to shoot the third film this spring in the U.S.
Sequel to the film by Chris Columbus “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" is just one casting decision will attract an army of fans Star series" Firefly "and" Castle. " Nathan Fillion is approved for the role of god Hermes in the film "Percy Jackson: The sea monsters."
The picture with Logan Lerman Columbus in the title role was the adaptation of Rick Riordan's first novel in a series about a boy - the heir to the Greek gods. At the first "Percy Jackson" spent 95 million dollars in worldwide box office collecting 226 million and barely worth the picture.
In "The Lightning Thief," a simple American boy learned that his father - the Greek god Poseidon. The young man held a series of tests, the results confirm his eminent origins. "Sea monsters" will speak about how Percy goes in search of his friend, the satyr Grover, trapped in a Cyclops Polyphemus.

In the universe of Percy Jackson Hermes is the father of the protagonist antagonist played by Jake Abel.
