This Tuesday (as opposed to last Tuesday) reveals the following in film news from around the web:
Who do you have for your lead in Captain America? [Splash Page] says it is Channing Tatum, who in turn thinks Big Willie Style, Will Smith would be perfect. I love the Fresh Prince but not sure I want either of them as Captain A. We’ll see. Is it just me or is Tatum’s hype like the second-coming of Colin Farrell without the acting chops?
Tina Fey’s Date Night cast is growing into the absurd. Mark Wahlberg and James Franco are the latest additions to the cast that already includes Common, Steve Carell, Taraji P. Henson and more. [First Showing]
The successful horror/torture Saw franchise will get the ultimate honor by being turned into a video game for your next-gen game systems. [ShockTillYouDrop] It’s akin to a ballplayer getting a bust in Cooperstown…I think.
Rachel McAdams talks about her possible blockbusters in State of Play and Sherlock Holmes with El Toro at [Latino Review].
Elisabeth Shue(!) lives but might not in her next film, Pirahna 3-D. A remake of the cult horror film from the 80′s only with Pirahna you can reach out and touch. Scary. [Cinema Blend]
Robert Venditti, author of The Surrogates, Bruce Willis’ Sc-Fi movie currently filming has a long discussion with [UGO Movies] about the book and a prequel “The Surrogates: Flesh and Bone.” No BTNH reference though, sorry.
Terminator: Salvation director McG is opting for a Spring Awakening, planning to adapt the Broadway musical. [The Guardian]
And finally, since you can’t seem to get enough of Zac Efron (you’ve been beating down the walls wanting more news on him!), I bequeath you with [Moviehole]‘s breakdown of Efron’s desire to play Marty McFly in a Back To the Future remake. At least he has the Delorean for starters.
