Leonardo DiCaprio to play main villain in Django Unchained?

If Twitter rumours turn out to be true, then Leonardo DiCaprio may have landed the part of main villain Calvin Candie in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained.

The tweet, which came from Creative Screenwriting editor Jeff Goldsmith, appeared on Monday night, saying: “DiCaprio WILL play villian Calvin Candie in Tarantino‘s Django Unchained!” It went on to say: “QT wanted him for I.B. & now has him!”
While we've been waiting for this to be either confirmed or denied, bloggers noted yesterday that Goldsmith was also responsible for breaking the news of Will Smith's involvement (as the titular slave-hero Django).

At least it looks like Goldsmith's hype-building tweets may at least hold some truth; it appears that Will Smith is indeed in talks, though Idris Elba has also emerged as a favourite for the part.

Django Unchained has room enough for both actors, with Waltz confirmed for the role of Dr Shulz, leaving main villain Calvin Candie open for DiCaprio.

With Christoph Waltz and either Idris Elba or Will Smith on board, Django Unchained looks set to vie with The Dark Knight Rises for most anticipated film over the next 12 months.

Note: It's probably been since The Quick And The Dead that we saw Dicaprio in a western.

The Hobbit titles and release dates announced

Part one is entitled The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and will be released on 14 December 2012, while part two is entitled The Hobbit: There And Back Again, and will be released 13 December 2013.

Both titles are in keeping with JRR Tolkien’s original tome, with There And Back Again being the alternate title that the author used for his 1937 book.

Meanwhile, An Unexpected Journey is a reference to An Unexpected Party, the title of the first chapter of The Hobbit.
Jackson also confirmed during an online Q&A session that the White Council will be appearing in the Hobbit films. “I will confirm that both the White Council and Dol Guldur will feature in the movies,” he says of the Council.

“And not just in one scene either. Just how to visualise it has been a challenge, but fortunately Alan Lee and John Howe went crazy with ideas, and it should look pretty cool.”

Hangover 3 is already heading our way

The Hangover: Part II smashed all sorts of records this weekend, snatching a hefty $200m at the worldwide box office.

Which means one word is currently echoing around the corridors at Warner Bros – “threequel!”

Now, Hangover II scribe Craig Mazin is being courted by WB to pen a third (and possibly final) instalment in the boozy franchise.

No word on the plot yet, though with Phillips clearly up for a third round of carnage, the only thing potentially standing in the way of a third Hangover could be the film’s stars.
Zach Galifianakis was constantly, vocally negative about Hangover II during filming, which means he could be nervous about a third, typecasting trip with the boys.

Considering the amount of money Hangover II’s made, though, Galifianakis, Brad Cooper and Ed Helms can basically ask for any sum they want...

Let's go classic with the Playmates of 1951 ( Been playing Mafia 2 so yeah :D)
