In 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' which features many familiar stars of past Wes Anderson movies, Saoirse Ronan ('The Host') and newcomer Tony Revolori were the new blood on set. We sat down with the two youngest stars of the film to chat about their initiation into this world that's home to the likes of Bill Murray, Edward Norton and Jeff Goldblum. (We started talking about food 'cause Revolori had just ordered pizza.)
After a tortured development, it looks like the much-talked-about 'Fantastic Four' reboot is finally starting to gain some real traction. The current word is that Simon Kinberg's rewrite of the script is finally finished and going out to actors, who will soon audition in various combinations to see who clicks. Longtime fans of Marvel's first family of superheroes may want to sit down before they see who is being eyed for Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman and the Human Torch...
The 'Fantastic Four' reboot may have gone through a tumultuous scripting process, with Simon Kinberg the latest writer brought in on the project, but with a March 2015 release looming, the cast will need to fall into place shortly if they're going to make the date. And now five new names (and two old ones) have been mentioned for the roles of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm/Invisible Woman and Johnny Storm/The Human Torch.
Lucasfilm and J.J. Abrams are currently searching for stars to beef up their highly anticipated 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' 'The Host' star Saoirse Ronan recently confirmed she went in to read for a part, but clarifies that "everyone has auditioned for it." Still, she has now opened up about the process, teasing a small tidbit about a new character.
Though we're still months away from production, rumors about who's in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' are likely to persist until the movie screens for audiences. The latest round of rumoring is that Saoirse Ronan is up for a role, and that -- contrary to the denials -- Benedict Cumberbatch is very much in the new trilogy.
'Violet and Daisy,' the directorial debut from Geoffrey Fletcher (Academy Award-winning screenwriter of 'Precious,' of all things), stars Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel as two teenage assassins. The film struggles to showcase the duplicitous nature of societal projections onto young women with its twee style and stylized dialogue, and even a look beneath the surface finds little else beyond its saccharine trappings.
After she became an alien-possessed human in 'The Host' and a teen vampire in 'Byzantium,' will Saoirse Ronan end up next transforming into a witch? More specifically, Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon's 'The Avengers 2'? The director recently confirmed that this classic comic book character and her brother, Quicksilver, are currently set to appear in the sequel to Marvel's superhero team blockbuster, and the actress the studio is reportedly using as a template for Scarlet Witch has come forward to address the chatter.
It's been rumored for the past few months that 'The Avengers 2' would introduce the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver to the ensemble, but this came such early on in the script process that it was taken with a grain of salt. Well, put away the seasoning: writer/director Joss Whedon has confirmed that these characters will have a role in the highly anticipated sequel.
