Weekly Ketchup: Jena Malone Joins Catching Fire Cast

Plus, a new role for Viggo Mortensen, an Avengers short film, and another Stephen King adaptation.

With Independence Day right in the middle, this week was so slow for movie news, that this Weekly Ketchup almost didn't even have 10 stories to include (normal weeks have more like 20-40 stories altogether). The stories that did actually get announced this week include casting news for the next Hunger Games sequel, a new Stephen King adaptation, and new roles for Samuel L. Jackson and Viggo Mortensen.


This Week's Top Story

JENA MALONE JOINS THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE

Weeks of speculation over the casting of District 7 tribute Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire came to an end this week. 27 year old Jenna Malone (Donnie Darko, Stepmom) is in negotiations for the role, which will also be featured in the third film, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. What everyone seems to mention about Johanna Mason, so this writer will mention too, is that she strips out of her costume in her first encounter with Katniss. Jenna Malone will be of course joined by several of the actors from the first film (whose characters survived). Filming of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is scheduled to start in late September, 2012 under the direction of Francis Lawrence (Constantine, Water for Elephants, I Am Legend).

Fresh Developments This Week

#1 JENNIFER HUDSON, SAM JACKSON AND ANGELA BASSETT IN TALKS FOR BLACK NATIVITY

Black Nativity is the title of an off-and-on Broadway musical written by Langston Hughes that features traditional Christmas carols sung in a gospel style. Black Nativity tells the traditional Nativity tale of the birth of Jesus Christ within a larger story of a teenager spending Christmas with his grandparents. The production first premiered in 1961, but now over 50 years later, it is on its way to becoming a musical feature film thanks to Fox Searchlight and director/writer Kasi Lemmons (Eve's Bayou, Talk to Me). Jennifer Hudson is now in talks to play the boy's mother, and for the roles of the grandparents, negotiations are ongoing with Angela Bassett and Samuel L. Jackson, who is also likely to play multiple roles within the Nativity scenes.


#2 VIGGO MORTENSEN IS ONE OF THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY

Viggo Mortensen and Oscar Isaac (Drive, Sucker Punch) have signed on to star in The Two Faces of January, an adaptation of a novel by Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mr. Ripley). Oscar Isaac will play the proprietor of a rundown Athens hotel, and Viggo Mortenson will play a man involved with "stock manipulation and fraud." The third major role yet to be cast is that of Mortenson's wife. The Two Faces of January will be the directorial debut of screenwriter Hossein Amini (Drive; cowriter of Snow White and the Huntsman).





#3 TRUE BLOOD STAR STEPHEN MOYER TIES THE DEVIL'S KNOT

British actor Stephen Moyer (True Blood) is the latest to join the cast of Devil's Knot, the dramatic retelling of the case of the West Memphis Three. Atom Egoyan (Chloe, The Sweet Hereafter) is directing, and some of the actors already cast include Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, Alessandro Nivola and Kevin Durand.







#4 THE AVENGERS TALE CONTINUES IN ITEM 47

Normally, this column only covers full length feature films, but this is a really, really slow news week because of Independence Day being on a Wednesday. And so, this news story breaks two of those rules, by being about a short film that's going direct-to-video. Item 47 isn't, however, just any short film, as it's also a de facto sequel to the most successful film of the year, The Avengers. Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield) and Jesse Bradford (Hackers) will play a couple that gets their hands on one of the alien Chitauri guns which they use for a crime spree, leading to two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents (Maximiliano Herndandez and Titus Welliver from LOST) going after them to get the weapon out of their hands. Item 47 will be included on the DVD and Blu Ray releases of The Avengers, which comes to stores and homes near you on September 25, 2012.


#5 WILL CHUCK PALAHNIUK'S SNUFF GETS THE MOST BANG OUT OF ITS GANG?

Author Chuck Palahniuk's novels have thus far been turned into two movies, one of which makes many people's lists of favorite movies (Fight Club), while the other one was Choke. Palahniuk's 2008 novel Snuff was told from the perspective of three of the men (#72, #137 and #600) participating in a 600 man gang bang orgy with an aging female porn star. And now, Snuff is on its way to becoming an R rated "story of love and redemption" courtesy of director Fabien Martorell (Tromatized: Meet Lloyd Kaufman). Curiously, the "official" announcement came this week, but as far back as early 2011, Martorell was talking about casting Snuff. Back then, Martorell claimed that Daryl Hannah (probably as the porn star), Thora Birch (probably as her assistant), and Tom Sizemore had joined the cast. It's unknown if any of those actors are still involved with Snuff, 17 months later.

Rotten Ideas of the Week

#4 ANOTHER WEEK, ANOTHER STEPHEN KING ADAPTATION: THE TEN O'CLOCK PEOPLE

Stephen King has written hundreds of novels, novellas and short stories, and dozens of movies have been based upon them since the 1970s. The latest entry in the massive line of Stephen King adaptations will be based upon The Ten O'Clock People, one of the stories in the 1993 collection Nightmares and Dreamscapes. Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) is now in talks to star as a Boston man whose efforts to quit smoking lead him to discover that monsters called "Batmen" are controlling the world disguised as humans in varying levels of power. Basically, it's a lot like John Carpenter's They Live, but without the glasses, Rowdy Roddy Piper, or chewing gum shortages. The Ten O'Clock People will be directed by Tom Holland, an old hand at horror who has two genuine 1980s classics to his credit (Fright Night and Child's Play), as well as two other Stephen King adaptations (Thinner and the Langoliers mini-series). However, none of his films' RT Tomatometer scores besides Child's Play and Fright Night (and none since 1988) are "Fresh," and so that's why The Ten O'Clock People is one of the week's Rotten Ideas.


#3 MORE WHITE HOUSE ATTACK CASTING NEWS: DYLAN MCDERMOTT IN OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN

This is another story one can credit to an extremely slow news week. Dylan McDermott has joined the cast as a Secret Service agent in Antoine Fuqua's Olympus Has Fallen. That's the one with Gerard Butler, Angela Bassett, and Aaron Eckhart (as President), and Antoine Fuqua directing. The other White House attack movie is White House Down, and that's the one with Channing Tatum, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jamie Foxx as POTUS, and Roland Emmerich directing.





#2 BRITISH TV-TURNED-MOVIE THE INBETWEENERS TO GET AMERICANIZED

The Inbetweeners is the title of a British sitcom TV show that got turned into a movie which subsequently became the top grossing British comedy of all time. And so, Paramount Pictures has started development on an American version of The Inbetweeners, although the new version may not keep that title. The original movie was about four nerdy teenage boys who go on vacation in Greece, but the new version may not keep that destination, either. So, what Paramount has is a movie about four horny teenage boys on vacation trying to get laid. Paramount's development of this movie comes just as MTV is preparing to debut an Americanized version of the TV show as well, starting on August 20, 2012. The cast of the MTV show will probably also star in this movie version, but that doesn't hasn't officially been confirmed yet. It just seems the most obvious answer.


#1 FILE UNDER SEQUELS WAY PAST THEIR EXPIRATION DATE: HOCUS POCUS 2

First off, it should be noted that this story hasn't officially been confirmed by anyone yet, and appears to have started when someone added the title to this Wikipedia page. It is however, a really, really, slow news week (it's been said earlier, but really can't be said enough), so here we go: Disney may or may not be developing a sequel to the 1993 fantasy comedy Hocus Pocus, starring Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, Sarah Jessica Parker, and a very young Vinessa Shaw. If this story is true, the title would be Hocus Pocus 2: Rise of the Elderwitch. But it might not be. Regardless, Hocus Pocus was quite over the top (to adult eyes, anyway; people who saw it as kids might remember it differently), and it's getting close to being 20 years old now. All of that would be enough to make this the Most Rotten Idea of the week, but the RT Tomatometer agrees with me, too.

Just a reminder that Francis Lawrence really isn't a very good film director.

I'm a longtime Langston Hughes fan, but "Black Nativity" seems difficult to contemporize. Wouldn't a biopick be a better option (with, say, Jeffery Wright perhaps)? Still, "Eve's Bayou" was one of the best black indie films of the 90s, so I want to give Lemmons and the cast the benefit of the doubt.

It'll be amusing to see all those Brits trying to wrestle with Arkansas accents in "Devil's Knot". Still, I'd like to see another good movie from Egoyan, something to make me forget crap like "Chloe".

Chuck Palahniuk rocks, and I actually thought "Choke" was very funny (I like Sam Rockwell better than some folks), funnier than "Shame" for example. I think it's perfect casting to go with these Celebrity Rehab alum for this project. Method desperation.

I'm glad it never occurred to anyone to 'Americanize' Monty Python. If Hollywood knew what they were doing, they'd give the Inbetweeners their own project rather than trying to remake it. MTV is the anti-obvious answer in entertainment.

I know this was only a minor point of yours, but what I don't understand is why the British don't re-Britisize Monty Python. Martin Freeman, Simon Pegg, Ricky Gervais, and other new Eurocentric actors could start in a revitalized British sketch comedy.

That sounds great, but it still doesn't have to be Monty Python, who were more than just the new Goon Show or the old Young Ones. Kids in the Hall were hardly the Canadian equivalent. I like new talent, not rehash.

Why would we want to go back? British comedy is fantastically funny and progressive and we have had one or two successes in the sketch comedy area since then. Go hunt down some smack the pony, the fast show or Peep show for some more recent examples.

Also, the inbetweeners is funny as fuck. The kids aren't nerds either just average middle class kids who swear alot. The teabaggers will not appreciate this group of foul mouthed cherubs that said, your MTV will water the shit out of it.

After seeing the success of Afro-centric films like Act Like a Woman, Think Like A Man, a Afro-Nativity movie will fly; Its like The Wiz with Diana Ross as Dorothy and Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow . . . only the "Black Jesus" film will make more money because BLACK . . . IS . . . IN! (Even the birth-rate for White People in America is below 50%!!!)/// Telegragh May 17, 2012 "
Minority races ?? Hispanics, blacks and Asians and other mixed races ?? accounted for 50.4 per cent of births over the year to July, accounting for a majority for the first time in US history.


The demographic milestone had been expected for years in a country founded by European whites and that early on relied heavily on the work of enslaved African populations, then went through a civil war and civil rights battle over issues of race."/// so, with no more White People left in America fifty years from now, we'll be seeing movies geared toward ethnicity and ethnic groups; eventually the "White Birth Rate" will be ZERO. HG Wells predicted this singular race idea in The Time Machine- The Eoli were darker people with curly hair and The Morlocks were albino type creatures living underground with straight white hair.///

00 - Awesome. I give zero shits about the kid-friendly version of Battle Royale.
01 - Awesome. I give zero shits about religion and/or creative deities.

02 - Finally, something I can sink me fangs into.. Viggo is one of my personal favorite actors and anything he's in is at least worth following.

03 - Awesome. I give zero shits about desperate-to-appear-mature True Blood, and have likewise no knowledge of that tree. Furthermore, I'm too lazy to click on that link possibly detailing what said tree in question is, so fuck it.

04 - OK, cool, Marvel's shorts are pretty rad (do kids still say "rad?" Is that still considered hip? Do kids still say "hip?")

PS - Before some idiot actually tries to answer those question (because I know someone will), I wasn't serious.

05 - Of course Tom Sizemore wants to be involved. This is literally less surprising that the fact that
the sun came out today. Yes, it turns out the sun was gay all along. About the movie, looking forward to it. If Hanna is indeed cast as the porn star, then I hope to Odin we do not see her nekkid. I like my eyes and don't wanna burn them out.

06 - Awesome. I give zero shits about authors of crap books, or likewise about adaptation of crap books.

07 - Yeah, both those movies look very uninspired. I'll probably still watch them, cos there will be shooting and shtuff.

08 - Hmm, never heard of it. Maybe I should give the series a shot.

09 - Srsly? Well, the cat was cool. Oh wait, I remember, it got turned into a person or something... thereby eradicating the only possibly positive aspect the sickwell had going for it.

But she's terrible. Katniss was played as a real vulnerable, courageous because I have to be or I'm dead Heroine with Post Traumatic Stress dis order and no Therapist to talk to about it. Jenna Malone is one of the worst young actresses TRYING to work today. Jena Malone is Awful! How is she going to act with Jennifer Lawrence! Ugh, I can already see Johanna Mason reduced to bitchy one liners and crossed armed poses.

It's like people telling me Alexander Ludwig is a great actor all over again, Alexander Ludwig was the biggest Flaw in The Hunger Games!
