Written by Tara the Mom    Tuesday, 01 June 2010 07:26   

Director Craig Brewer is searching for 18-year old (and up) guys to play high-school seniors for the remake of Footloose. Applicants can submit themselves on tape as long as it gets there by June 9 -- on other words, you don't have to be famous or live in Los Angeles. There will be some dancing but the casting notice says you don't have to be a trained dancer, just have some rhythm.

Guillermo Del Toro Flees THE HOBBIT

Written by Tara the Mom    Tuesday, 01 June 2010 07:04   

The future of MGM/New Line's The Hobbit just became even more shakier. Acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy) says he's leaving the Peter Jackson-produced and written film because of all the delays in getting the go-ahead to start shooting. The delays appear to be due to MGM's financial problems; they are looking for someone to come and by the company. MGM says that has nothing to do with it although that is the reason why the studio shelved the next Bond movie.

Jackson excused del Toro, saying the delays meant that the director would have to be committed to living in New Zealand for the next six years to make the two Hobbit films which would then put his other projects on hold that long. Jackson said he may take the director reins if need be but he is already committed to two other movies at the moment (The Adventures of TinTin: Secret of the Unicorn and it's sequel).
