Movie News in 60 Seconds: Tom Cruise’s New Leading Ladies; Kristen Wiig, Walter Mitty’s Fantasy; The Severed Head That Wasn’t a Movie Prop

Minority Report

Last Man Alive Gets All the Women: Playing the last man left alive on planet Earth, Tom Cruise will be joined by Andrea Riseborough (W.E.) and Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) in a science fiction thriller formerly known as Oblivion. Joseph Kosinski (Tron Legacy) will direct the film, set in a post-apocalyptic future. (Deadline)

Fantasies Could Come True: Rather than work on a Bridesmaids sequel, Kristen Wiig wants to be Ben Stiller’s fantasy girl. The actress is “in negotiations” to star in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, with Stiller ready to direct himself in the lead role, the same character played so unforgettably by Danny Kaye in the 1947 original. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Delayed Gratification: The release of Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer 3D has been delayed nine months, from June 2012 to March 2013, by distributor Warner Bros., while the same studio’s Arthur & Lancelot has been removed from the release calendar entirely. The latter is reportedly “on pause over budget concerns.” (The Wrap)

Now That’s Realistic: If you live in Los Angeles, you start to think everything is make believe. So when a golden retriever in the pack of dogs she was walking found a severed human head, Lauren Kornberg “convinced herself” that it was “just a realistic Hollywood movie prop”; she only called authorities at the insistence of her mother, who was along for the walk. (Los Angeles Times)
