A few other odds and ends of interest today:
- Oscar nominee David Strathairn has been added to McG's untitled movie about the aftermath of the 1970 plane crash that killed much of the Marshall University football team. Strathairn, who is expected to play the university president, joins Matthew McConaughey and Matthew Fox in the cast.
- According to its director, Anthony Hopkins' previously-announcedPapa (in which the actor was to play his doppelganger Ernest Hemingway) has been pulled. Roger Donaldson, who just directed Hopkins in The World's Fastest Indian, claims that the movie never even got to pre-production: "There were too many problems with the rights and the financing, and the schedules mean it won't happen."
- Moviehole reports the
totally unsubstantiated rumors that Kiefer Sutherland has a contract
with Fox for not one, not two, but three whole 24
movies, the first of which will start shooting some time next year. Oh, and Bruce
Willis wants to be in it. If either story turns out to be true, we'll let you know.
