Casting Roundup: 8/2/2010

Has Rachel Weisz signed on for a Deep Blue Sea remake?

NO. However, the Oscar-winning actress is in talks to star in a cinematic adaptation of The Deep Blue Sea, based on the 1952 Terence Rattigan play. [Slash Film]

Are Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver headed for Spain?

YES. Willis and Weaver have signed on for ‘The Cold Light a Day’, a film that–from the plot– sounds like it’s been done too many times before. Willis will portray a secret laden father, while Weaver takes on the role of the villain.  More on the here.

Are Sandra Bullock and Steve Carell set to star opposite each other?

As of right now it’s UNCONFIRMED,  but seeing these two comedic forces combine would be pretty epic. Sources say the two could sign on for “Abstinence Teacher”, a religious comedy directed by Valerie Faris and Johnathan Dayton, of ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ fame. [The Playlist]

Is Liam Neeson Lincoln no more?

Sadly, YES.  Neeson will no longer portray the 16th president of the United States in Steven Spielberg’s long-awaited biopic. Neeson cites the reason being that he no longer appropriate for the role, but no one is buying it. [Cinematical]
