It’s no secret that Christopher Nolan casts his movies fantastically. There’s no doubt about that. He knows who he wants, and he gets that person for the role.
Rumor has it, that Michael Caine is in talks to be in Nolan’s next movie, Inception. Cillian Murphy and Ellen Page have already been confirmed as being cast. Others have been rumored, but not yet confirmed.
It’s no surprise the Nolan would want to cast Caine. For me, he was an integral part of The Prestige, and that story would not have been even remotely complete without him playing Cutter.
And who can forget his performance as Alfred in the last two Batman movies?
Should Nolan cast Caine in Inception, I’m sure whatever part he plays would be fantastic.
There’s no talk yet as to what Inception is actually about, but it’s Christopher and Jonathan Nolan writing it. What more do you need?
It’s no secret that we here at MovieSnobs love Christopher Nolan, and pretty much anything he’s done, or ever will done. When we heard about his newest movie Inception being green lit, we were thrilled.
News broke last night that Nolan’s begun scouting talent for the film, and is in talks with some big name stars to be in the movie. Who? Glad you asked.
Ellen Page (Juno), Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins, Red Eye, Sunshine), and Marion Cotillard (Big Fish, Public Enemies), that’s who.
I’m a big fan of Cillian Murphy’s, especially after Batman Begins, and who doesn’t love Ellen Page? I can’t comment on Marion Cotillard, because I’ve never heard of her, and she’s only mostly done French films (aside from a handful of B movies).
All we know about Inception thus far is that it’s a “sci-fi” movie “based on the architecture of the mind.” Based on previous Nolan movies, it’s going to be amazing, confusing, and leave you wondering what the hell just happened.
Inception was written by Christopher Nolan and his screenwriter brother, Jonathan Nolan.
As a recent fan of Juno and a huge fan of Cillian Murphy, I was psyched to see that they’ll be in a movie together. Even better news is that Murphy will be playing a person with split personality disorder who believes his two personalities are husband and wife. Cillian has an amazing range as an actor, and I’m sure this is a role that will allow him to show off his talents.
Page plays a young mother in the town who instigates a battle between Murphy’s personalities.
Having just seen Juno, I’m a little in awe of Ellen Page. I loved her even more after reading the interview with her in Entertainment Weekly. She seems like a smart girl – like someone I would have been friends with in high school. She’s a fresh face in Hollywood these days, so it’s no surprise that director Sam Raimi has picked her up for his new horror film, Drag Me To Hell.
Empire Online points out that this is Raimi’s first non-Spider-Man movie in eight years. It’s also his first horror movie since Army of Darkness.
I’m really looking forward to see what Page can do for a horror movie. It’s also a good sign that she won’t be typecast as the smart-mouthed indie chick forever.
Not only has the movie Juno been gaining praise from critics and moviegoers alike, but the Juno Soundtrack has hit the number one spot on the Billboard charts ahead of stars like Alicia Keys and Radiohead. It’s a very folky-sounding soundtrack – not exactly my speed since I’m more of a death metal kinda girl (Ok, not really, but I much prefer Tool over Buddy Holly). It makes pretty decent background music though, since it’s mostly melodic guitars and soft vocals. It’s easy to listen to and remember the scenes from the movie, since the music plays so prominently in the movie.
The Kimya Dawson song lyrics sound like something Phoebe Buffay would have played at Central Perk, although they definitely do sound like something Juno MacGuff would listen to. I’m really annoyed by the out-of-synch chorus singing – it honestly hurts my brain. They were cute in small doses during the movie, but I definitely don’t need to listen to this stream of consciousness kind of lyric-writing for an entire CD worth of tunes. The Belle & Sebastian songs don’t annoy me, but I can honestly say I’ll probably never listen to this CD again – it’s not that it’s bad music, it’s just not my kinda thing.
Sonic Youth’s cover of The Carpenters’ “Superstar” is just creepy and dark enough for me to like it, even though I’ve never heard a Sonic Youth song before.
