GwDT: Rooney Mara is Lisbeth Salander

After a few weeks of speculation and having nearly ever actress in Hollywood linked to the role of Lisbeth Salander for the Hollywood 2011 version of the millennium trilogy. It has been announced that relatively unknown actress Rooney Mara will be taking on the massive task of bringing Salander to the big screen in the English/American version of the franchise. Most recently Mara was in the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Youth in Revolt. I am finding it quite positive that she is quite an unknown quantity as it should make it easier to bring Salander to life.

Mara joins Daniel Craig, Stellan Skarsgard and Robin Wright Penn who have been cast in the film thus far. I am still looking forward to see who will be in the more minor yet important roles in the film.

GwDT: Robin Wright Penn is Erika Berger?

Another day, another possible part cast in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. The latest news is that Robin Wright Penn is in talks to take on the role of Erika Berger. Who is the long time occasional lover of Daniel Craig’s character Mikael Blomkvist, and editor of Millenium magazine.

I think this would be good casting as I can really see her in the role of Berger.

What does everyone else think?

A Christmas Carol (2009) Review

Charles Dicken’s classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge is given an animated Disney look, and if you so wish 3D (2D is still available). I just had to go for the 3D option in an attempt to try to make my mind up whether I like it better or not. Scrooge is taken on a journey of redemption by three ghosts, the ghost of Christmas past, present and future. Going  back looking at his life as it was, how it is today and how it will not be for very much longer. But can he be convinced to change his ways?

Nicholas Sparks Novel’s turned Movies

After getting excited yesterday about “Dear John” and realising how much I love Nicholas Sparks Novel’s which have been turned into movies, I decided to look a bit closer into them. Not only is “Dear John” coming out next year, another based on one of his novels is “The Last Song” (2010) which I cannot believe I forgot about as Miley Cyrus is going to be starring in it. At the moment Nicholas Sparks has 14 Novels, 6 of these are now movies. With two of them due for release next year. The other four which have been released are “Message in a Bottle” (1999), “A Walk to Remember” (2002), “The Notebook” (2004) and “Nights in Rodanthe” (2008). The tagline’s for each of the movies help to show which type of story is the main key in the movie, and the pictures below show that too . . . Love . . . all about love.

News: Penn Takes A Break From Movies

Hopefully this will not be for too long !!!

Sean Penn is taking a break from his movie career – the Oscar winner has pulled out of his next two film projects.

The star has quit his upcoming role in action picture Cartel and scrapped plans to work alongside Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey in The Three Stooges.

Penn, who recently reconciled with wife Robin Wright Penn after their second split in 18 months, is rumoured to be taking time out to spend more time with his partner and their two teenage children.

The actor’s publicist Mara Buxbaum confirmed the news to E! Online, “We indeed informed both productions that Sean was not available now. If for whatever reason the start dates on these productions were to be postponed, Sean would happily remain involved.”

News: Penns Party Together After Scrapping Separation Bid

WOW this really is very on-off it doesnt seem that they can make their minds up. They must really love each other !!!

Sean Penn’s on-off marriage to Robin Wright Penn seems to be on again – the pair was spotted at a Memorial Day bash just days after the actor called off their legal separation.

The Oscar-winner initially filed papers for a “legal separation with minor children” in April, just days before the couple’s 13th wedding anniversary.

Penn reportedly dismissed the bid earlier this month after spotting his partner enjoying life as a single woman at the Cannes Film Festival.

And it seems the pair is giving the relationship another go – they turned up to a party at Hollywood producer Joel Silver’s house in Malibu, California on Monday, and spent the evening enjoying drinks with Tom Hanks and Robert Downey, Jr.

It’s not the first time the couple has split only to reunite months later – they started divorce proceedings in December 2007 only to officially end the separation four months later.

News: Carrey Brings Snow To Cannes

I think this is so cute 🙂

Jim Carrey brought Christmas to the French Riviera on Monday after transforming the Cannes Film Festival into a winter wonderland to promote his new movie A Christmas Carol.

The funnyman arrived at a yuletide-themed photo call in a horse-drawn carriage before frolicking in the fake powder at the sun-drenched Carlton Hotel beside the Mediterranean Sea.

Carrey, who plays Ebenezer Scrooge in the Disney film, even scooped clumps of the pretend flakes into snowballs, which he pelted at castmates Colin Firth and Robin Wright Penn.

Studio bosses have launched a seven-month promotional campaign for the 3D remake, which will even feature a train tour across the U.S. leading up to the film’s November release.
