Iron Man 3 / Rum Diary

Transcendance: The cast of Wally Pfister’s directorial debut is quickly filling with stars, now that Johnny Depp is confirmed to play the lead role. First, Paul Brittany (Priest) signed up for the science fiction thriller, and now Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3) has joined the cast as well; she’ll play the academic wife of Depp’s character, a scientist who creates a computer that becomes self-aware.

James Bond: If the producers of the James Bond franchise have their way, Adele will become this generation’s Shirley Bassey, according to a report in a British newspaper. Supposedly the singer has already been signed for the soundtrack of the next Bond film, based on the success of her recording of the Skyfall theme. Adele and Bassey both sang at the Academy Awards recently, and Bassey is famed for recording multiple Bond theme songs: Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker. [The Sun]

Evil Dead TV Spots: How do you sell an extremely bloody horror movie -- that had to be trimmed to secure an R rating theatrically -- when it comes to broadcast television spots? In two TV spots for Evil Dead, we get one that slashes through the setup as quickly as possible, while the other showcases the reaction of online viewers. The movie will world premiere at SXSW this weekend, ahead of its wide opening on April 5. [Sony Pictures]

What Maisie Knew Trailer: Julianne Moore, Steve Coogan and Alexander Skarsgard star in the drama What Maisie Knew, which revolves around a little girl who is caught between her beloved mother and father after her parents divorce and move onto new relationships. The first trailer looks like it may be heartbreaking territory. The thoroughly modern movie, adapted from Henry James’ 1897 novel, is due for release in May. [Yahoo! Movies]
