Gary Oldman Reportedly Joins 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'
With shooting just a few weeks away, casting for Matt Reeves' "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" is ramping up quickly. So far, apart from the motion capture actor extraordinaire Andy Serkis, the film features "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jason Clarke and Kodi Smit-McPhee, the boy from Reeves' previous feature, "Let Me In." And yet another big name has joined the cast, "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "The Dark Knight Trilogy" star Gary Oldman.

Paul Bettany has had it a bit rough the past few years, famously turning down "The King's Speech" (oops) and starring in a handful of forgettable movies like the Charles Darwin flick "Creation," and stuff like "Legion" and "Priest." He had a nice turn in "Margin Call," but mostly he's been better known of late as the voice of Jarvis, Tony Stark's AI butler, in the Marvel movies. He's a talented dude who has always seemed to just keep missing a leap into bigger and better things, but now his time may have finally arrived.

We have to say, with each passing trailer, Joseph Kosinski's upcoming "Oblivion" looks better and better. What once seemed like a "Wall-E" for adults has become something of an anticipated sci-fi tentpole, boasting an intriguing concept, some pretty impressive effects and a vibe we can get down with, and this latest trailer has once again upped the ante.

Despite its potentially dry subject matter, Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” is creeping towards $200 million domestic box office, while Netflix’s “House of Cards” is just about the most talked about television show right now, which suggests that political dramas are in vogue. What better to give a shiny new big screen remake to than Frank Capra’s 1948 film “State of the Union,” in which Spencer Tracy’s industrialist ran for President, backed by Angela Lansbury’s wealthy newspaper magnate.

Shot quite a while back, and originally slated to be released last fall, the action thriller "The Expatriate" is finally coming, with a new, even more generic title: "Erased." At least they both begin with E, right? Anyway, if "The Bourne Legacy" left you hankering for another similarly styled, but Hydrox version of the movie, well, here's your chems.

The Guy Who Made 'Liar Liar,' 'Patch Adams' & 'Ace Ventura' To Direct Paul Feig Penned 'Intouchables' Remake

So, remember Tom Shadyac? He's the guy who was at one time a box office comedy titan, thanks to "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "The Nutty Professor," "Liar Liar" and "Bruce Almighty." But then he decided after making millions upon millions of dollars that there was more to life and made a documentary. "I Am"was a lot of feel good, New Age-y mumbo jumbo, that found him talking with folks like David Suzuki, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Lynne McTaggart, Ray Anderson, John Francis, Coleman Barks, and Marc Ian Barasch about like the world, man. That was a couple of years ago, and while he briefly popped up as a contender to direct a remake of Arthur Lubin's 1964 film "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" that had Zach Galifianakis attached to star, it didn't happen. But now another remake might bring him back in the ring.

The criminal continues to win subsequent duels, and usurps the nobleman’s identity altogether.

When he was asked straight out earlier this month on the February 8th Empire Podcast (while promoting the UK release of “Wreck-It Ralph”) whether his “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” cameo had been decided on yet, John C. Reilly was very non-committal. “I don’t know that I’m going to be in 'Anchorman 2,' ” he said. “I don’t know that there’s a spot for me or not. I have no idea. I think I’d almost prefer to just be an audience member and just enjoy it and not be part of it. But we’ll see...any chance to work with Will and Adam; I’d be a fool to pass that up.” Well, it looks like that chance has come up, and Reilly has elected not to be a fool and instead film a brief cameo in the highly anticipated sequel.
