Tim Gunn lands a part in 'Smurfs,' Mickey Rourke might head 'Hell's Angels' (Excess Hollywood)

Posted on

  • Project Runway‘s Tim Gunn will play an executive assistant at a cosmetics company in Columbia’s The Smurfs Movie. How is he not voicing Tailor Smurf?! [Variety]
  • Mickey Rourke may collaborate with Tony Scott on the director’s next two films: Potzdamer Platz, and Hell’s Angels, in which Rourke would play Sonny Barger, the man who helped turn the motorcycle gang into a national organization. Okay, so we’ve firmly established now that between this, this, and this news, we should never mess with Rourke, right? [Deadline]
  • TLC has announced they will pick up Toddlers and Tiaras for a third season. In other news, your name has been added to this website mere seconds after reading that first sentence. Congratulations! [THR]
  • Ice Age: Continental Drift — the fourth film in the Fox franchise — will be released July 13, 2012. And five months later, look forward to New Ice Age: The Continents Will Really Drift and Kill You Unless John Cusack is Your Father/Ex-Husband. [Variety]
  • Robert Englund, a.k.a. the original Freddy Krueger — is set to join the cast of Inkubus, a film about a demon who walks into a police station holding a severed head and confesses to several heinous crimes. Like convincing Tim Urban to perform a reggae version of “Under My Thumb.” [Variety]
  • The producers behind Precious will adapt the children’s book Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. I’m guessing Judy Moody didn’t spend her summer watching Precious then. [Variety]
  • Quentin Tarantino will head the jury of the Venice Film Festival, and no doubt behead them in a creative way while daydreaming during the fest. [THR]
  • Greta Gerwig (Greenberg) has been tapped to star in Liza Minnelli’s working-class waitress role in the remake of Arthur. Yea, okay, but where does Buster fit in with all of this? [Deadline]
  • Made of Honor writers Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont will help pen Repeat After Me, Universal’s Groundhog Day-esque film about a woman who relives her disastrous wedding day over and over again. Almost as bad as reliving over and over again the day I saw Made of Honor. [THR]
