Good news! (At least, “Good news” for people who like films in which folks are stitched together to form grotesque, insect-like monstrosities!) EW can exclusively reveal that Human Centipede star Dieter Laser has settled his differences with director Tom Six and will appear in the third film of the notoriously gruesome horror franchise.

'Texas Chainsaw 3D' star Alexandra Daddario on facing off against Leatherface and those 'Fifty Shades of Grey' rumors
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has a habit of casting actors on the cusp of fame, be they Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger in 1994’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, Jessica Biel in the 2003 remake of Tobe Hooper’s original classic shocker, or Matt Bomer in 2006’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. The latest thespian hoping to benefit from what we’re going to call “the Chainsaw bump” is Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) who plays the heroine in Texas Chainsaw 3D, which arrives in cinemas this Friday.
Below, the actress talks about facing off against the iconic Leatherface, the forthcoming Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and why the cast members of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia aren’t as drunk as you might think. READ FULL STORY
There has been talk of Nicolas Cage joining the cast of the third Expendables movie, but it’s not a done deal. “He’s interested, but we’re waiting for it to come together,” Cage’s manager tells EW.com. A Sunday post on a Sylvester Stallone Facebook page that is attributed to Stallone says Cage’s casting has been “confirmed.” A rep for Stallone could not verify who runs that page.
While most of of the ensemble cast of the Osama bin Laden takedown film is already known, The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal have been keeping one important bit of casting news hush-hush for months.
James Gandolfini will appear as one of the highest-ranking government figures featured in the film — Leon Panetta, the current Secretary of Defense, who was head of the CIA when bin Laden was found and killed.
There’s a too-easy joke to be made here: How awesome is it that Tony Soprano is involved in the effort to whack Osama? READ FULL STORY
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.

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.”
The next project from British director Ben Wheatley will be a period piece called A Field In England. Set in 1648, during the English Civil War, the movie’s cast includes comedians Julian Barratt from U.K. TV show The Mighty Boosh, Reece Shearsmith from The League of Gentlemen, and Michael Smiley, who starred in Wheatley’s recent, gut-churning, hit men-horror movie Kill List.
Hunger Games casting news is at a fever pitch. There’s still no news about Finnick, but Johanna, Gloss and Brutus have all been recent announcements. Now Chaff has been cast as well, Lionsgate announced today.
E. Roger Mitchell will portray Chaff, a tribute from District 11 that previously won the 45 annual Hunger Games and competes like all the others in the Quarter Quell in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Mitchell has previously appeared on The Shield, One Tree Hill and Tyler Perry projects such as Diary Of A Mad Black Woman and House Of Payne.
Enjoy the casting announcement — fans still have a long time to wait to catch the next installment. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be released on November 22, 2013.

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 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.
