Casting: Dwayne Johnson's Massive Graphic Novel Adaptation, Plus Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman and More

Apr 13, 2012

— Dwayne Johnson will be appearing in the upcoming action film from Warner Bros., Lore. The story is based on a 2004 graphic novel created (and illustrated) by husband and wife duo Ashley Wood and T.P. Louise. The story involves a secret society of "Shepherds" who guard a world full of ancient, mythical creatures. The beasts eventually find their way to earth after the Shepherds' line of succession is broken. A "reluctant hero's" life may be threatened if the creatures cannot be kept at bay. Priest director Cory Goodman wrote the screenplay. You can see Johnson in the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which hits theaters this summer. [via Coming Soon]

Deadline reports that Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman will be joining Liam Hemsworth in Legally Blonde director Robert Luketic's Paranoia. Spread's Jason Hall drafted the most recent version of the script that centers on a world of "dueling telecom giants." Hemsworth leads the corporate espionage thriller, which is an adaptation of the Joseph Finder novel. Paranoia starts shooting this summer. Let's hope Oldman brings his crazy and Ford's grimace will continue to woo us.

— English actress Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) will be appearing in The Chelsea, which is being directed by Nancy Meyers (Father of the Bride). The story was written by Meyer's daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer and is being described as an ensemble dramedy set in the Chelsea Apartments in New York City. The film doesn't have a distributor yet, because Meyers wants to round out her cast before presenting. Jones — who many know from British television, where she got her start —just wrapped up Drake Doremus, and will also be appearing in Hysteria (yep, the vibrator movie) and The Invisible Woman with Ralph Fiennes. Deadline shares that Warrant Beatty is still figuring out his Howard Hughes movie, but Jones may play the young female lead for the actor-director.
