Ed Westwick Joins 'J. Edgar'Looks like some folks at William Morris Endeavor are going to need to be apologizing and sending Charlize Theron some flowers. Vulture reports the actress, who even Clint Eastwood believed would be joining his upcoming biopic "J. Edgar," wasn't as keen as everybody thought she was in joining the film and has backed away and set a big budget franchise in her sights.

Oh boy, it's probably not going to be a great morning for Charlize Theron's PR rep. Last night, news broke that Theron had left Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar" in favor of taking a look at a the lead role, freshly rewritten with her in mind, in Ridley Scott's developing "Alien" prequel. But it appears that's not all that's cooking for the suddenly-very-in-demand actress.

Some more news from Ridley Scott's developing but not yet greenlit "Alien" prequel. A lot of casting rumors and other bits of production info have been flying around of late, with most of it turning out to be untrue, but Scott Free appears to be continuing to put pieces for the eventual film in place as it awaits an official thumbs up from 20th Century Fox to move forward.

So, rumors started flying at the end of last week that the "Alien" prequel, or prequels, which has been set for most of the year to be Ridley Scott's next film, would possibly be delayed for as much as a year, despite talk that the film would be getting under way shortly. As we reported yesterday, the reports of a delay were inaccurate, particularly as the film is yet to be officially green-lit.

Ridley Scott hasn't been shy about talking up his gestating prequel(s) to "Alien" and it's certainly one of the hottest projects in Hollywood. A bevy of actresses including Olivia Wilde, Noomi Rapace, Carey Mulligan, Abbie Cornish and Natalie Portman have all been linked as candidates for the lead role, and reports earlier in the fall suggested that Fox was very happy with the latest draft of the script by Damon Lindelof ("Lost," "Star Trek"). However, earlier this week, word cropped up that 20th Century Fox was delaying the film with a rumored release date push from 2012 to 2013. Looks like it was a lot of hot air.

Swedish Actress Also Says She's Happy David Fincher Went With An Unknown For His Version Of 'Dragon Tattoo'Noomi Rapace. She's everywhere. The hottest thing out of Sweden since IKEA, Volvo and Björn Borg.
