Movie News for Pirates, Captain America, and Elysium


Quite a bit of news over the weekend, including a possible James Franco project, Jodie Foster casting, and Pirates of the Caribbean stuff.

Pirates of the Caribbean

Let’s be honest, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is likely going to be the biggest film I’m talking about in this post. So let’s start there. There’s a new behind the scenes video, and the cover for the upcoming Empire magazine featuring Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow has found it’s way online, and into your hearts. That’s right, I can see into your hearts.


District 9 director Neil Blomkamp’s next film, Elysium, which has already cast Sharlto Copley and Matt Damon, has also hired Jodie Foster, who I contend is a super hot older lesbian. At least, I’ve heard she’s a muffin muncher. No judgements. She seems like a nice, classy lady. Who made a film called The Beaver just because she is infatuated. Like me.

Blood Meridian

James Franco, who I suspect is crazy essentially everyday, is apparently in talks to write and direct the film. No word if he wants to have a part in the film, but I’d guess yes. Franco is getting a serious leg up with all his attention for 127 Hours. He’s been reported to be in talks to replace Matt Damon in the Bourne series, and now he wants to direct stuff. Rock on, brother.

Captain America

Talk about a teaser. ET is going behind the scenes on next summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger, and they have a full SIX SECONDS of it online. And I knew you’d all want to see it.

There’s also this pic, which is kinda cool.
