Movie News & Movie Rumors Round-Up: Rooney Mara, Scarlett Johansson, The Hobbit, Elizabeth Banks, Chinglish, more!

Here is the latest in Movie News, Movie Casting, Movie Rumors from the last week in the Film Industry

Elizabeth Banks is in – what is being billed as a pissing contest – with one of her first directors over the choice and quality of film. I don’t see this as that big of a deal.

Rooney Mara, star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, has a lot on her plate. Now she takes over Carey Mulligan’s role in Spike Jonze’s next film.

Robert Rodriguez will direct Fire and Ice after he completes Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For. He also has said that Machete 2 will be happening.

ScarJo is not going to be in Iron Man 3, and Jessica Chastain is in talks to take her place it appears. ScarJo would like a Black Widow spin-off. I would like ScarJo’s top off as it turns out.

Owen Wilson is set up for an action drama The Coup, in which he’ll play a father in a foreign country embroiled in a coup. Well then…

CinemaCon moviegoers rip The Hobbit footage. Too bad, but there is plenty of time for improvement, me thinks.

Brother of Jeremy, Justin Lin, director of Fast and Furious, will direct and produce rom-com Chinglish. If a white guy were to direct this, there would be an uproar. Just sayin’.
