Casting Update

There have been several casting rumours surfacing over the past few days beginning with Clint Eastwood’s next project ‘J. Edgar’ which is currently in pre-production. As the name suggests this is a biopic on FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, with Leonardo DiCaprio (‘Inception’) in the lead role, Armie Hammer (‘The Social Network’) as Clyde Tolson, and Judi Dench (‘Casino Royale’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’) as Anne Marie Hoover. It is now being reported that Josh Lucas (‘Poseidon’, ‘Stealth’, and ‘American Psycho’) has been cast in the role of Charles Lindbergh a renowned aviator.

With both a strong cast and director as well as exploring such an interesting historical figure ‘J. Edgar’ is one to look out for.

‘Dibbuk Box’ is a horror film currently in pre-production with Ole Bornedal attached to direct and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (‘Watchmen’, ‘The Losers’) in the lead role. It has been reported that Kyra Sedgwick best known for her role in the TV series ‘The Closer’ has been cast in the lead female role. ‘Dibbuk Box’ is currently scheduled for a release in late 2011.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
