Word on the street is that Rosario Dawson has signed on for Denzel Washington’s new film Unstoppable. As previously reported, Unstoppable was a go then stopped — however, after some negotiations the flick is back on its feet. Now, the cast includes Rosario Dawson, Chris Pine and of course Denzel Washington. Unstoppable is in theater November of 2010.
Anthony Mackie, who has received rave reviews for his performance in The Hurt Locker, has recently been cast in The Adjustment Bureau. According to Variety:
“The Adjustment Bureau,” adapted from Philip K. Dick’s short story, centers on a smooth-talking congressman whose political future is thrown in doubt by the arrival of a mysterious ballerina in his life.
Mackie is appearing in “The Bacchae” in Gotham as part of Shakespeare in the Park. ‘The Adjustment Bureau’ will shoot in New York immediately following the wrap of the play.”
In other news, Tyler Perry has been a victim of Craigslist fraud. According to his web site:
“I get an email from my staff saying that someone put an ad up on Craigslist saying that I was casting a movie in L.A., and in order to be considered for this (FAKE) Tyler Perry movie, you have to join their club for $29.95. THAT IS A LIE, don’t fall for it. These folks are trying to rip you off. I hate for people to prey on people’s dreams and hopes. Why don’t people get a job and stop trying to steal folks’ hard-earned money….Ugh, that makes me mad; let me breathe.”
Be on the look out actors — dreams can’t be bought on Craigslist!
