Well, this just got interesting. Actually, this just got even more interesting. With Michael Douglas already slotted to play Ronald Reagan, his Cold War foe in the upcoming "Reykjavik" has been cast and it's an actor who is increasingly becoming something of a chameleon on screen.

The Hollywood Reporter reevals that famously liberal actor Michael Douglas will play famously conservative president Ronald Regan in "Reykjavik," a Cold War drama once being eyed as a potential directing vehicle for Ridley Scott. Scott is still involved in the project, but will serve as a producer through his Scott Free banner. Mike Newell, who directed "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" and a new version of "Great Expectations" that is debuting at Toronto in a couple of weeks, is in talks to helm the film.

Ridley Scott attaches himself to more projects than any other filmmaker. The director, currently shooting "Alien" prequel/reboot/unconnected sci-fi film/whatever "Prometheus," has at least a dozen projects percolating at any one time -- at present, they include dystopian classic "Brave New World," a biopic of fashion legend Maurizio Gucci, an adaptation of board game "Monopoly," vampire film "Passage," thriller remake "Red Riding", a biopic of explorer Gertrude Bell, Civil War flick "The Color Of Lightning," Soviet thriller "Child 44," Casey Affleck thriller "The Kind One," another sci-fi, "The Forever War" and god knows how many others.
