Or should we say IFANS – who was just confirmed for the role of the villian a couple days ago – is playing the guy who turns into the Lizard. This wouldn’t be the first time producers involved with the franchise have flirted with having the Lizard as the principle foe in a SPIDER-MAN movie as THRALL WORLD posted late last year just before SONY decided to scrap everything and start over with a new creative team and cast.

No confirmation from SONY just yet but word on the street is that:

Rhys Ifans will play Dr. Curt Connors, better known as The Lizard, in Marc Webb’s “Spider-Man.”

’28 MONTHS LATER’ In Development – DANNY BOYLE: “I Want To Direct It”

A recent quote from ALEX GARLAND – best known for writing the novel THE BEACH, and scripting the Danny Boyle-directed scifi film SUNSHINE and 28 DAYS LATER. – indicates that a 3rd installment of the zombie-plague movie – possibly called 28 MONTHS LATER – was in developmental hell:

“When we made ’28 Days Later,’ the rights were frozen between a group of people who are no longer talking to each other. And so, the film is never going to happen unless those people start talking to each other again. There is no script as far as I’m aware.”

Despite that, director DANNY BOYLE has indicated that the movie may indeed be moving forward:

“There’s another 28 Days Later in the works.” When asked if the title would be 28 Months Later, Boyle replied “In theory, yes.” Immediately the next question was if he’d be producing, to which Boyle responded, “Actually I want to direct it.”

It’s Official: EMMA STONE As GWEN STACY In New SPIDER-MAN Reboot

EMMA STONE and ANDREW GARFIELD

There seemed to be some confusion on the part of the interwebz about whether or not red-haired EMMA STONE would play red-haired MARY JANE WATSON or blond-haired GWEN STACY.

Regardless of the hair, Stone has been slected to portray the role of GWEN STACY. And there seems to be a lot of importance attached to this casting so THRALL WORLD is led to believe that MJ might not figure as prominent in the SPIDER-MAN initial reboot movie as producers rewind and start anew the telling of the popular comic book hero.

EMMA STONE [ZOMBIELAND] has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming Spider-Man film film from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, it was announced today by Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures.

Stone has been tapped for the role of GWEN STACY opposite ANDREW GARFIELD [THE SOCIAL NETWORK, THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS] as Peter Parker.

The film, to be directed by Marc Webb [(500) DAYS OF SUMMER] from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and produced by Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin, will begin production in December and will be released in theaters nationwide in 3D on July 3, 2012.

NATALIE PORTMAN To Produce And Star In ‘PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES’

It seems like only yesterday THRALL WORLD first spotted Natalie Portman in HEAT and BEAUTIFUL GIRLS the former being one of our favorite movies of all time and the latter positioning Portman in ways we had never really considered (due to her age).

Fifteen years later after having taken on a plethora of juicy roles in George Lucas’s prequel STAR WARS trilogy, V FOR VENDETTA, GOYA’S GHOSTS, and BROTHERS – we look forward to seeing her in the upcoming THOR movie as the God of Thunder’s human love interest ( as opposed to his immortal love interest) and Darren Aronofsky’s BLACK SWAN.

And here’s one more to keep an eye out for:

[Natalie] Portman will star in and produce “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” a film that is based on the bestselling book written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Austen. Lionsgate will finance and distribute. Quirk Books published the tome.

Though Austen’s name is on the book, Grahame-Smith took the liberty of adding bloodthirsty flesh-eating zombies to the mix.

A little unusual to post these in the same update but that’s how it appeared in Variety… Dual 3D sequels:

Hollywood is moving forward with a pair of unlikely 3D sequels. Sony is in the process of inking deals to bring back the “Zombieland” team for a second installment, but this time the bloody comedy is poised to unspool in 3D. And Paramount has greenlit a third “Jackass,” which will also be shot in 3D.

…The [new JACKASS] film will lense in Knob Lick, Kentucky, Mianus, Connecticut, Fukang, China, Buttzville, New Jersey and Gayville, South Dakota.

The JACKASS Bunch (cast): 3rd movie confirmed - possibly in 3D

Also from JackAssWorld.com Knoxville makes the official announcement of the 3rd movie with a disclaimer:

Okay, everybody, this is going to be short but sweet. We (and by we I mean everybody) are doing a third jackass movie. Woohoo and honk-honk! It will come out in late 2010 and it may or may not be in 3-D. I know it’s being reported it will be in 3-D, but until we test those cameras out we won’t make the decision. Anyway, whatever dimension it’s in, just know its going to be f’ed. We’re back, and jackass 3 is cumming soon.

Roger Avary and Samuel Hadida of Davis Films are climbing back up “Silent Hill.”

The screenwriter and producer have signed on for a sequel to their 2006 video game adaptation.

The original, based on the Konami game, centered on a woman who travels to a desolate town to seek help for her ailing daughter only to find supernatural occurrences taking place there.

Read more HERE.

It is most likely that director Christophe Gans will return as well since he viewed the first Silent Hill as the first in a series of films:

“I prepared myself for six years to do this job, knowing that every fan in the world would wait for me with an axe. I will be sniped when I go to buy my games at my favorite store if I do a bad job. And I understand that, I’m a fan of the game myself…I admire the work of Akira and his friends, and I feel very much like someone who joined the group and tried to transport that amazing piece of art into a different medium.”
