Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy: Marvel and director James Gunn are apparently unafraid to make daring casting choices for their upcoming superhero team-up movie Guardians of the Galaxy. The latest addition is Ophelia Lovibond, a British actress who is little-known in the U.S. She joins Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Michael Rooker; the character Lovibond is playing has not yet been revealed. The movie is due out August 1, 2014. [Heat Vision]

Dodgeball Sequel: Nearly 10 years after the original debuted in theaters, a sequel to Dodgeball is finally underway. Clay Tarver, who has written comedies about competitive barbershop quartets and a nerdy basketball team, has been hired to pen the screenplay, which will reportedly focus again on the characters played by Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn in the 2004 movie, as they are “forced to team up to fight an even bigger threat.” [The Hollywood Reporter]

Spy’s Kid: Robert De Niro and Shia LaBeouf might star as father and son in Spy's Kid, a thriller that might be directed by D.J. Caruso, who previously teamed with LaBeouf on the thrillers Disturbia and Eagle Eye. The deals are all in preliminary stages, and dependent upon a script for which no writer has yet been hired. The basis for the project is a series of newspaper articles, detailing the story of a spy turned trailer who enlisted his son in his nefarious deeds. []

Star Trek Into Darkness Clip: We’ve been treated to photos, teasers and trailers, and now the first official clip from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness has been released. The clip offers a look at the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise in crisis mode, with Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and John Cho trying to save Spock (Zachary Quinto) from a fiery demise. The movie launches into theaters on May 17. []
