A couple of days ago we reported a rumour that Elizabeth Olsen (“Oldboy”) was the favourite to play Scarlet Witch in director Joss Whedon’s “Avengers” sequel. Well, apparently that looks to be happening; the acclaimed actress is reportedly in talks to join the film. (The Hollywood Reporter)

“About Time” star Domhall Gleeson is set for director Angelina Jolie’s  “Unbroken”, which begins shooting in Australia this October. Based on the best-selling Laura Hillenbrand novel,  the film will star Jack O’Connell as Olympian and prisoner of war, Louis Zamperini. (Deadline)

Natalie Martinez (TV’s “Under the Dome”) is joining WB action thriller “Run All Night”. Liam Neeson, Ed Harris and Joel Kinnaman star in the film. Martinez will play Kinnaman’s wife, “and mother of their two young children. When Mike’s estranged mob hitman father Jimmy takes on his ex-boss, he and his son are forced to go on the run.” (Deadline)

Aussie actress Sharni Vinson (“Bait”, “You’re Next”) is aboard that ‘female’ Expendables project that producer Adi Shankar is putting together. Katee Sackhoff and Gina Caranao have already agreed to take part in the all-female action movie. Dutch Southern wrote the screenplay for the untitled picture. (Collider)

Yesterday we reported that a “Rambo” TV series is in the works. While that is true, apparently Sylvester Stallone won’t be – as reported – playing the role of John Rambo; the character will be recast for Television, but Sly will be involved in some capacity behind-the-scenes (The Hollywood Reporter)
