Brie Larson,21 Jump Street
An array of casting news has filtered down today, so let's just get to it. First up, Brie Larson has signed up to star in the adaptation of Emma Donoghue's critically acclaimed, best-selling novel "Room." Lenny Abrahamson, who broke out with "What Richard Did" and has the already hotly buzzed "Frank" on the way, will direct this one about "a woman kidnapped as a teenager who has been held captive for years in a tiny room where she lives with her 5-year-old son Jack. To the boy, Room is the only home he’s ever known."

Since crossing over into the mainstream with 2006’s “Borat,” Sacha Baron Cohen has worked with the likes of Tom Hooper, Martin Scorsese and Tim Burton, a feat impressive for any actor, much less a comedic one. Variety reports Baron Cohen is in early talks to re-team with his “Sweeney Todd” co-star Johnny Depp for the slow-brewing “Alice in Wonderland” sequel, “Through the Looking Glass.”

Yes, so "The Lone Ranger" flopped hard, but honestly, who thought that was even possible? Even with the not-so-hot reviews going into the opening weekend, the general consensus seemed to be: Johnny Depp + "Pirates Of The Caribbean" director and producer = extra-large-parking-spot-required-for-dump-truck-filled-with-cash. However, that didn't really pan out at all. Is Depp's star fading? Would Disney really be ditching the star who has made them literally billions of dollars because of one movie? Whatever happened, the mouse house isn't too concerned at all and are eagerly firming up the walls of Depp's home at the studio.

So why is Disney prepping a sequel to a movie that even Walt Disney Animation Studios' chief technical officer Andy Hendrickson said "isn't very good"? Well, they've got about $1,024,299,904 reasons. That's how much "Alice In Wonderland" took worldwide in 2010 to make it one of the highest grossing films of all time (it's still #12 on the all time list ahead). So this was really a matter of procedure because let's face it, you don't leave a cash cow like that lying around, so yes, a sequel is on the way.
