Movie News in 60 Seconds: 'Snow White' Confrontation; Stars Get Jobs: Robert De Niro, Rachel McAdams, Chloe Morez, and Catherine Zeta-Jones

Bob and Mike: In an unlikely teaming for a bachelor party comedy, Robert De Niro (above, in Casino) and Michael Douglas will play longtime friends in Last Vegas. Douglas will pretend to be a lifelong bachelor who is finally getting married, while De Niro will be a “party-averse” pal. Will be it The Hangover for seniors? The wildly inconsistent Jon Turteltaub (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, While You Were Sleeping) will direct based on a script by Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love.). [Deadline]

Time-Traveling Lover: Turning from romantic drama (The Vow) to romantic comedy, Rachel McAdams is in negotiations to star in About Time. She would join Domhnall Gleeson, who is set to play a time-traveling man who meets the woman of his dreams. Richard Curtis (Love, Actually) wrote the script and will direct. It’s described as a “feel-good” flick, so expect wacky, lovable antics from the man who wrote Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Zombie Girl: She’s been a masked heroine (Kick-Ass) and a vampire (Let Me In), and will soon be the new Carrie, so what’s left for Chloe Moretz to do but become a zombie? She’s in talks to star in Maggie, and would play a girl who survives a zombie outbreak only to succumb to the disease of the undead herself; Paddy Considine might play her long-suffering father. [The Playlist]

Sequel-itis: Confirming news first reported three months ago, Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, and Mary-Louise Parker will all be returning for RED 2, under the direction of Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest). New to the cast will be Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung-Hun Lee (G.I. Joe: Retaliation). The only hint at the plot is that the story is set in Europe. RED 2 is set to hit theatres in August 2013.

You Will: In the clip below from Snow White and the Huntsman, the Evil Queen (Charlize Theron) has a tense confrontation with the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth), who's not too keen on obeying her command to enter into the Dark Forest to find the elusive Snow White (Kristin Stewart). The movies hits on June 1. [Yahoo! Movies via Latino Review]
