Last week, the news broke that the ever-wonderful Cate Blanchett was close to joining director Mark Romanek's 'Cinderella' in the role of the evil stepmother, firmly establishing it as the Hollywood Revision Of A Classic Fairy Tale to watch out for. It still feels odd that the director of 'One Hour Photo' and 'Never Let Me Go' is making a Cinderella movie, but putting quality actors on the screen is the first step in giving us hope. On the heels of the Blanchett news, Variety reports that the short list for the title role is down to three actresses: Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander and Gabriella Wilde. You'll probably recognize Ronan from 'Atonement,' 'The Lovely Bones' and 'Hanna' and if you were unlucky enough to see 'The Three Musketeers' you may remember Wilde, but Vikander seems to be a newcomer, making this role her potential big break and her own potential Cinderella story. Life imitating art and so forth.

The finale to the 'Twilight Saga,' 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2,' hasn't even hit theaters yet and already Stephenie Meyer and her movie team have released a new trailer for 'The Host.' You think it's a coincidence that promotions for this new young adult book-adapted movie, including the release of the new poster, coincide almost perfectly with the conclusion of Meyer's first venture into the film biz? We think not.

One of her other non-vampire romance novels, ‘The Host,’ is getting the big screen treatment, and now the new poster from that film has been revealed, showing off its main star Saoirse Ronan.

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' has gone through a long period of ups and downs. Johnny Depp was first thought to play the male lead in Wes Anderson's latest, but it turned out that the internet was just pulling a fast one on us. Then Ralph Fiennes stepped into talks to take over the vacant spot, but Angela Lansbury bowed out.
Let's hope this next casting news sticks -- Saoirse Ronan, star of the upcoming vampire flick 'Byzantium,' has been tapped for the lead female role in the film.
