It never even saw the light of production, heard ‘cut’ yelled across set, or heard a scream in a sound stage. The follow up movie to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, has been shut down before it even started production. Due to low numbers from the first film, Sony has decided to ‘delay’ production of City of Ashes…indefinitely.
We here at justjmac are indefinitely saddened by this delay. Besides one or two slightly corny bits it was a quite pleasant movie to watch. Now, I don’t know if one could follow it if they hadn’t read the books but still… they should just go ahead and make it for our sake.
Congratulations to Channing Tatum and wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, who welcomed a baby girl, Everly Tatum, on Thursday, May 30, 2013. The baby is rumored to have been delivered in the UK, per a conversation Tatum had with Ryan Seacrest during the oscars:
”We’re going to actually have the baby in London while I’m shooting, and then there will be no downtime whatsoever after that.”
Tatum is currently filming his newest film, Jupiter Ascending, in London. We send all our well wishes to the couple and new baby!
Can I just point out one thing. The coolest Doctor to-date and Ryan Gosling are hanging out and working together on the film, Hot To Catch A Monster. This is enough to make any fangirl have a heart attack but then you add in the fact that Matt Smith without the floppy hair and bow-tie is… well… HOT.
And by the look of these photos, an evil character. (is that a horse shoe, make shift, belt buckle?) Holy-cannoli, when did The 11th Doctor get abs? This is all so much to take in. My brain is suddenly, oddly attracted to this ab wearing, shaved headed Matt Smith.
Gosling is directing the film which is about “A single mother is swept into a dark underworld, while her teenage son discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town,” according to the imdb page. Other actors rumored to be in How To Catch A Monster include: Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan and Christina Hendricks.
SIDE NOTE: They are filming in Detroit. Our Teammate Sarah lives in Detroit. Why she isn’t on set, every day, I’m not sure.
All this time …our guesses have been wrong! We’ve finally learned that Theo James is to play the role of Four in the upcoming adaptation of Veronica Roth’s best seller, Divergent. The 29-year-old British actor has been in smaller roles in shows like Downton Abbey and Golden Boy.
Also cast this week, was Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), Ray Stevenson(The Book of Eli, Dexter, Thor: The Dark World) and Miles Teller (Project X, 21 & Over). However, what specific roles they will be playing has not been released.
What do you think of this Four? This was completely out of left field for me! I didn’t even know he was a contender. Touche, Lionsgate! He does seem quite attractive but a bit old.
We are still waiting for the long, drawn out release of the actor playing Four. (Go figure!) However, we have been given the name of the actor who will play the evil male role.
Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard, Spartacus) has been cast as Eric, the evil Dauntless leader. Jai is smoking hot and it will be fun to see him portray the role of the slightly punk-rockstar looking Eric.
This is very exciting but we are still twiddling our thumbs for news on Tobias/Four!
GET ON WITH IT, LIONSGATE.
So the Divergent movie should be in production in a little over a month. (04/13) Yet, here we are. Still no male lead. Are you holding out until the end, Summit? Why haven’t you released who Kate Winslet is to play? ….and finally, Luke Kleintank may or may not be playing Caleb? Get it together!
wow. Thanks for the news.
Is this some sort of dirty trick, Mr. Neil Burger (if that’s even your real name)?!
Alas, I shall stop whining because I think complaining will not get us far. I’m just saying, patience is wearing thin in this fandom. THIN, I TELL YOU! At least Veronica Roth and her publishers have recognized our growing anxiety, therefore quieting the crowds with book 3 release date info. Bless you, child.
Rumors are still swirling about Alex Pettyfer cast as Four but we wont believe it until we see the IMDB page update and Summit/Lionsgate release a tweet.
We shall wait…because, really, what choice do we have?
Today, Romeo Miller tweeted about his recent audition for the movie Divergent:
Who’s that you say? You might remember him as his short lived rapper stage name, Lil’ Romeo, 23, son of Master P. He moved from rapping to acting in 2003. He even had his own Teen Nick show called –you guessed it, Romeo.
So what role do you think he’s going up for? Also, anyone else trying their hardest to be patient and wait for an official Four announcement!?
