Hollywood seems to have entirely dried up the well on fresh ideas, so much so that the 1999 scifi classic Galaxy Quest is being adapted into a TV series. There are no details about the cast or plot yet, but the film version's writer, director, and producer are all on board for the series, so there's hope! But if they can't get Alan Rickman to reprise his role? Why bother?
Variety is reporting that Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games, Captain America) has joined the cast of the upcoming live action Beauty and the Beast. He joins stars Emma Watson, Emma Thompson, and Kevin Kline as a brand new character, a "neurotic maestro" grand piano named Cadenza.
What do you think of the film's inclusion of a new character? Are you excited to see Stanley Tucci join the film?
Daniel Radcliffe is set to play Sam Houser, the co-creator and current president of Rockstar Games. Houser is credited with both the creation of GTA and upping the ante as far as video game violence was concerned.
This, as you know from the early 2000s, drew the ire of Florida attorney Jack Thompson who was known for suing a variety of media outlets for racy and violent content.
As of now the part of Jack Thompson has not been cast. I for one am hoping Idris Elba is up for the roll, despite looking nothing like Jack Thompson.
