Casting Roundup

There’s been a lot of rumored casting news lately,  almost to the point where it’s becoming difficult to keep up with. Let’s start with the most obvious—

Is Angelina Jolie ‘Cleopatra’?

According to ‘The Guardian’ this is true.  Jolie will star in a new film adapted from the upcoming biography written by Pulitzer Prize winner Stacy Schiff. This book won’t be published until the fall, but the rights have already been purchased and the project is being developed for  Jolie.  But the real cheesy twist of this entire thing— Brad Pitt is being considered for the role of Mark Anthony. Note to all involved: Stop while your ahead.

Will Joseph Gordon-Levitt play the Riddler in ‘Batman 3’?

This story was denied by JGL’s camp last week, but the rumor is still out there.  Personally I think his people are bluffing, but take my opinion with a grain of salt.  I won’t toss it in the false category just yet…..

Are Amber Heard and Rosamund Pike being considered for ‘X-Men: First Class’?

According to Production Weekly, this is true.    The roles in question are a young Mystique for Heard and Professor X’s assistant Moira McTaggert for Pike.   The casting for these comic book films get more exciting everyday.
