Casting Net: Bradley Cooper back in the Lance Armstrong fold, more

• Remember way back in January when we all thought Bradley Cooper was going to play Lance Armstrong and then he basically told us all to cool it because he hadn’t even heard of the J.J. Abrams/Bad Robot project? Now, eight months later, Cooper is in fact close to boarding a different Armstrong pic, Red Blooded American, as a producer and a potential star for director Jay Roach (Meet the Parents). Cooper, who scored an Oscar nomination for his work in Silver Linings Playbook, would either play Armstrong or Tyler Hamilton, a teammate of the disgraced cyclist in the Warner Bros. and Atlas Entertainment pic, with a script from Side Effects writer Scott Z. Burns. Should Cooper take on the role of Hamilton, we still have our own wish list for the part of Armstrong. In addition to the Paramount/Bad Robot pic, Working Title also has an Armstrong movie in the works, with Ain’t Them Bodies Saints Ben Foster starring and Stephen Frears (The Queen) directing.

Exclusive: 'Star Trek Into Darkness' hits Blu-ray and DVD on...

This fall, your TV will boldly go where no TV has gone before.

EW can exclusively reveal that J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek Into Darkness will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and On Demand on September 10, 2013. A digital download of the film will be available three weeks earlier, on August 20.

“I’m thrilled with how everything looks and sounds,” Abrams said in a statement. “We also have some really fun behind-the-scenes special features that we shot on the Red [Epic cameras] and created entirely in-house at Bad Robot. They really look amazing and unlike anything I’ve seen on DVD or Blu-ray before.”

Those special features include making-of shorts about creating the Red Planet and the Klingon home world of Kronos, as well as a sit-down with stars Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch — and a segment called “The Enemy of My Enemy,” which explores “how, and why, the identity of the film’s true villain was kept a mystery to the very end.”

'We lost a legend': Ray Harryhausen remembered by Depp, Abrams, del Toro, Gilliam, more

As news spread Tuesday that Ray Harryhausen had died at age 92 there was an especially emotional reaction from sci-fi, horror and fantasy filmmakers — a community with a deep and formative affection for the old-school effects wizard and the work he did on films such as The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad and Clash of the Titans (1981). EW reached out to some signature names in those circles on Tuesday to frame the legacy of Harryhausen and by phone and email they responded with praise for a departed master.

J.J. Abrams, director, producer and screenwriter (Star Trek Into Darkness, Lost): “He was, obviously, a genius, infinitely ahead of his time. He inspired us all with his skill and imagination, and will be missed.”
