Vincent D'Onofrio in talks for action film "The Tomb"


You’re reading that right… “director” Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of the three directors approving offers to talent today for their upcoming flicks. He joins Steven Soderbergh and Mikael Hafstrom in the hunt for new stars!

Gordon-Levitt approved an offer to Julianne Moore for his still unnamed upcoming feature directing debut, the UNTITLED JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT COMEDY PROJECT. The film, which is also set to star JGL and Scarlett Johansson, centers on a modern-day Don Juan, as he strives to change his ways. Moore was most recently scene in the record-breaking HBO Films debut “Game Change”.

Soderbergh, meanwhile has approved early talks to bring aboard on-the-rise star Vinessa Shaw for his once upon a time titled “The Bitter Pill” which is now going by the title THE SIDE EFFECTS. Shaw would join a cast already set to star (though all of these names could not be confirmed before this piece) Channing Tatum, Jude Law, Liv Tyler, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Rooney Mara. Our sources tell us Shaw may be stepping in to the role of ‘Emily Hawkins’ that was previously set to star Mara – who may now be unavailable. Shaw, who was most recently seen in the horribly retitled Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski film “Big Miracle”.

And lastly, Hafstrom has seen the list of potential stars grow for his prison action film THE TOMB, with Summit inviting early talks with star Vincent D’Onofrio. D’Onofrio would join the current cast of Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jim Caviezel in this prison-designer goes to jail actioner. D’Onofrio was last seen in the indie flick “Kill the Irishman”.

Thanks Jenn!

The story of THE TOMB "follows Ray Breslin, the world's foremost authority on structural security -- specifically prisons. His skills are put to the test when he is framed and put in a high-security prison of his own design and must find the person who put him there."

Quite a cast Vincent would be joining..Lets hope it comes off and not another one never released..

Rose said...

You are right, if it gets released, but maybe with Arnold and Sly's name on it, it probably will. Though will have to say that I'm not a fan of either one of them.

thereel said...

Me either!

val said...

"Last seen in Kill The Irishman"! By the writer of this, maybe, but not by us, eh folks?

Regina Caschetto said...

I hope the talks go through in a positive manner. Sounds like an interesting film, though I don't know how much either Sly or Arnold would guarantee big box office anymore.

Rose said...

I think it is time to replace these two action stars, Arnold and Sly with some younger, and hotter action stars. I wouldn't mind looking at Hugh Jackman along with Vincent, and I have a few other names swirling around in my mind lol

There seem to be lots of things that have been in 'talks' and quite a few that Vincent has said no one ever talked to him about in the first place (like 'High Midnight') so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.....

No offense to them, but surely Arnie and Sly are well passed their sell-by dates for 'action' movies??

Rose said...

I couldn't agree more, and I'm not trying to be rude either, but think it may be time for the two of them to perhaps end the action movies. I just read that Arnold and Danny DeVito are making a sequel to the movie Twins, and this time they are adding Eddie Murphy to the cast and calling it Triplets lol.

Ms Misanthropist said...

Yes please. I need him on our screens. It's been too long.

Gloria said...

But Jim Caviezel certainly isn't past his sell-date! He is so fabulous in Person of Interest! I don't know if my heart can take him and D'Onofrio in the same movie! So much sex appeal and acting chops from both!!!
