With Spring still looking like being miles away, here are a few more future films to stoke up the excitement levels and keep you going through the last few weeks of winter.
Dinner For Schmucks (August 2010)
Meet the Parents director Jay Roach is set to collaborate this summer with some of the best comedy actors currently about. Teaming up with Paul Rudd (I Love you man, Role Models, Anchorman) Steve Carell (40 Year Old Virgin, Anchorman, Little Miss Sunshine), Zack Galifianakis (Hangover, Up In The Air, Vissoneers) and Ron Livingston (Swingers, Office Space) In a remake of recent French comedy masterpiece Diner de cons (1998). The film centers around a group of elitist snobs who invite 'idiots' around for a dinner party, for 'entertainment'. Although this will probably be advertised over the summer as some kind of lame buddy movie, the stella cast certainly bodes well for it being an other surprisingly good comedy. And additionally it'll be good to see Ron Livingstone get another chance to shine in a big comedy role
IMDB plot: Tim (Rudd) is a rising executive who "succeeds" in finding the perfect guest, IRS employee Barry (Carell), for his boss's monthly event, a so-called "dinner for idiots," which offers certain advantages to the exec who shows up with the biggest buffoon.
Les Aventures Extra Ordinaires D'adele Blanc-Sec
Classic French comic book + Mathieu Amalric x Luc Besson = Very excited
After many people sneared at Angel-A (which i loved btw) Luc Besson has decided to come out of retirement for this rather exciting looking piece. Apparently shooting is finished yet not much is none about it so far, but fingers crossed for another great slice of french cinema. Its been described by Besson as a little piece Indiana Jones, a little bit Tin Tin and a slab of Hellboy
IMDB plot: An animated adventure set in the early party of the 20th century and focused on a popular novelist and her dealings with would-be suitors, the cops, monsters, and other distractions.
(Aronofsky - Mickey Rourke) x Vincent Cassel + fueding ballerinas played by Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman = something more than your usual dance flick.
A ballet thriller? apparently not, instead we have a creepy unsettling piece in much the same vein as David Lynch to look forward to. After the Wrestlers high praise it'll be interesting to see if Aronofsky can pull off something a little different after the Fountain failed to capture audiences (Not me however, I still believe it to be his best piece of work yet) No word yet if Clint Mansel is on board to soundtrack but rumours surgest he will be.
IMDB plot: A thriller that hones in on the relationship between a veteran ballet dancer and a rival.
Other Films we will write about once we know more about them (links to IMDB Page)
Roger Rabbit 2: Really? does this need to done? apparently so, but good news is apparently Roger and co will remain in 2D (IMDB)
Whip It: Yes its about rollerblading waitresses but its directed by Drew Barrymore who obviously has a good eye for picking work to produce, Donnie Darko anyone (IMDB)
Source Code: Duncan Jones second feature will be another Sci-fi piece, even if it doesn't surpass Moon it'll still be one to watch (IMDB)
Melancholia: Lars Von Trier, apparently the greatest living director, well thats what he says anyway. (IMDB)
Prince Of Persia: Meh, could be alright. Game was amazing but not sure if its substantial enough for a film (IMDB)
