Quick Hits: New Action for Vin Diesel, Kristen Wiig's Next and Who Beat Up Tom Hardy

Jul 13, 2011

50/50 PosterBuzz has been building strongly for Jonathan Levine's 50/50 (formerly titled I'm With Cancer), a comedy that finds Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt trying to fight cancer, and now /Film has premiered the poster for the September 30th film.

There are zero details about the plot, but Vin Diesel will both produce and star in a new action movie written by Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell, the duo who wrote Unknown.

Kristen Wiig is set to star in Imogene, a comedy directed by the American Splendor duo of Shari Springer Bergman and Robert Pulcini about a love lorne New York gal who fakes suicide to lure back her ex-boyfriend but winds up being placed under the custodial care of her mother.

Even though I wasn't much of a fan of the film, I've got to admit that the marketing material for Bellflower is damned eye catching.  Head over to HitFix to check out the newest poster for the indie flick.

Charlie Matthau's adaptation of Elmore Leonard's Freaky Deaky has a whole new cast (for the second time): Billy Burke, Christian Slater, Michael Jai White and Breanne Racano are replacing Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser, Craig Robinson and Katie Cassidy.

Wanna hear something funny?  Shia LaBeouf knocked out Tom Hardy when they got into a fight on the set of The Wettest County In The World.  No, really, even Hardy admits he blacked out.

After Dark Films aren't exclusively making horror movies anymore.  They'll be teaming up with Joel Silver to produce El Gringo, an action movie written by Jonathan W. Stokes about an American who tries to escape to Mexico with $2.3 million in cash after being shot.
