Wes Anderson: Johnny Depp will NOT be in 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'

Despite earlier reports, Johnny Depp will not be starring in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. According to the Huffington Post, Anderson denied the news, laughing, “The Internet has a way of announcing things on its own. You will find that even though I’m very aware of the cast that has been announced on its own devices, you’ll never find me saying who’s in the movie. … In fact, Johnny is somebody who I would love to work with at some point, but he’s not going to be in this movie.”

Anderson did confirm that Bill Murray will appear in the film, though. So we have that going for us, which is nice.

Director Joe Dante on his long-awaited, family-friendly horror movie 'The Hole'

the-hole-poster.jpg

In director Joe Dante’s new movie The Hole a pair of young brothers (Chris Massoglia, Nathan Gamble) and their neighbor (Haley Bennett) investigate a mysterious chasm in the basement of the siblings’ house and are forced to deal with the array of terrifying unpleasantness which emerges from said aperture. Like Dante’s pair of Gremlins movies, the result is a family-friendly venture which may have younger clan members viewing the action through trembling fingers. “It’s my revenge,” laughs Dante. “That’s how I watched Tarantula in 1955. I forced my father to take me to see this giant spider movie and I’m so scared that I’m in the lobby peeking in. My poor father was left sitting alone watching a giant spider movie.”

Emma Watson addresses 'Fifty Shades of Grey' casting rumors

The Internet got all sorts of excited last week when rumors began to surface that Emma Watson was in talks for the role of Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of  Fifty Shades of Grey. Not so fast, says Watson. “I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script, nothing,” Watson tells EW. “There are so many movies you become attached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call. It was the same way with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – I never even saw a script!”

Watson is plenty busy: she has The Perks of Being a Wallflower in theaters this fall; she recently wrapped Sofia Coppola’s  The Bling Ring and is currently working on Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. She adds that even some friends and family asked her about Grey since so many different items linking her to the film have popped up online. “I told them just because there are 60 articles on the Internet doesn’t mean it’s any less true than if there are three or four.”

And a word to the wise for those who believe everything that they read about the actress: “The thing is I’m not going to go out there every time someone attaches me to a film to say no or release a statement.”

Daniel Radcliffe to star in supernatural thriller 'Horns'

Daniel Radcliffe has been cast in the adaptation of Joe Hill’s New York Times best-seller Horns. Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) will direct the film that centers on Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the prime suspect in the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend. Perrish awakens one day with a hangover and horns growing out of his head. More strange: The horns have the power to get people to confess their sins — which should help him find the real killer. Per the press release, “This rock and roll infused dark fantasy explores why bad things happen to good people, and what the loss of true love can do to a man.”

Red Granite Pictures and Mandalay Pictures will produce the film, which begins shooting this fall.

Dianna Agron's 'Glee'-ful casting confirmation

Dianna Agron, A.K.A. Glee’s Quinn Fabray, has confirmed via her Twitter feed that she is in talks to play Robert De Niro’s daughter in the Luc Besson movie Malavita. The comedy thriller will follow an American mobster (De Niro) who moves to France under a Witness Protection Program but finds it hard to let go of his domineering ways, ultimately attracting the attention of the people he’s hiding from. Michelle Pfeiffer will play De Niro’s wife (and mother to Agron).

The casting news, broken by the Hollywood Reporter, also noted that Tommy Lee Jones is also in negotiations to come aboard.

Based on a novel by Tonino Benacquista, the script is being co-written by Besson who is also attached to direct. This could well be Agron’s road to a big-screen future after last year’s poorly received I Am Number Four.

Alexis Denisof explains his role in the 'Avengers' universe: 'I'm certainly on the villain team'

Being a member of the Whedon-verse certainly has its perks — just ask Angel alumnus Alexis Denisof, who stopped by EW’s Comic-Con suite to chat about his latest Joss Whedon project, upcoming (partially musical!) Shakespeare adaptation Much Ado About Nothing, which also stars Amy Acker, Clark Gregg, and Nathan Fillion.

Since we had Denisof sitting on our couch, we just had to ask him about his role in another Joss Whedon-directed film: The Avengers. What, you didn’t know that Alexis Denisof was in The Avengers? Don’t feel too bad  — he was shrouded in shadows and under a  few layers of prosthetic make up.

Denisof, who is credited as “The Other,” appears in the film three separate times — he addresses Loki at the very beginning of the film, then argues with him at the halfway point. But at the very end of The Avengers, during the bonus post-credits scene, Denisof’s character speaks with a new baddie: the death-obsessed alien overlord Thanos, whom Darren Franich has already explained more effectively than I will attempt here.

Mind you, Denisof is not Thanos — he made that clear himself — instead, he’s the figure addressing Thanos. For now, we simply know him as “The Other.”

So who is this mysterious “Other?” Well, that’s tough to say, but here’s what we know: According to Denisof, he’s “certainly on the villain team” and “report[s] to Thanos.” As he explains, “Loki and The Other have a relationship. We’ve struck a deal, but the deal doesn’t deliver, so there are ramifications.” Listen to the whole conversation below: READ FULL STORY

'Hobbit' star Richard Armitage lands major role in tornado thriller -- EXCLUSIVE

The Hobbit just wrapped shooting and the Dec. 14 opening of its first installment, An Unexpected Journey, is still months away, but one of its stars, Richard Armitage, is already enjoying a major career boost. The British actor, who plays the fierce dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson’s two-part adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy epic, has joined the cast of New Line’s untitled tornado thriller.
