Madea Christmas

Tyler Perry’s “Madea Christmas” has added Larry the Cable Guy, Chad Michael Murray (“One Tree Hill”), Tika Sumpter and Kathy Najimy to it’s ensemble. ”The story sees Madea getting coaxed into helping a friend pay her daughter a surprise visit in the country for Christmas. Their arrival, as the rural town prepares for its annual Christmas Carnival, prompts secrets to be revealed and old friendships test. Oh, and Madea dishes her special brand of spirit to all.” The Perry written/directed comedy starts filming in a week and will be out for Christmas. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Rest Home

Melissa George and Roy Dupuis will star in the Australia/Canadian co-production about ”a security guard in a retirement home who’s married with two kids and is hooked on painkillers and anti-depressants. His life spirals out of control when he catches his wife (Hunted star George) with her lover.” The film comes from Australian-born, Mexican-based writer-director Michael Rowe. Filming will be done in Canada, post-production in Australia. (Deadline)

Legends (TV)

Former “Heroes” star Ali Larter has been cast in the new TNT series, opposite Sean Bean. The high-concept series “centers on Martin Odum (Sean Bean), a deep-cover CIA operative who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. Larter will play Crystal, an operative with D.C.O. who has a history with Martin and initially objects to his return to the task force.” (Deadline)


Legendary Pictures is eyeing “Kick-Ass” and “Savages” star Aaron Taylor Johnson to headline their reboot of the monster-movie. The Gareth Edwards directed film, due 2014, has been in the news recently because of it’s dismissal of three producers. (Deadline)

21 Jump Street 2

Dave Franco says he’ll likely be back for the sequel to the Channing Tatum/Jonah Hill comedy. “I’ve heard little things… They claim I’ll be around. Who knows how much they can use me because I’m in jail at this point but I’m hoping they can find a creative way to have me be a pivotal part of the story.” (Collider).
