‘The Hobbit’ And ‘The A-Team’ Cameos In Today’s Dailies — 11/10/09

— Let the speculation begin. “Howling Mad” Murdock actor Dwight Schultz will be showing up for a cameo in Joe Carnahan’s “The A-Team,” according to a fansite. Hopefully, this means we’ll be seeing other cameos from the rest of the team. Who doesn’t want to see Mr. T give this young guns A-Team a vote of confidence with a tiny cameo role. Hell, he can leave his gold chains at home if it makes him happy. Schultz is great, but the fans want what they want: bring back T. (The Official Dwight Schultz Fansite, via Cinematical)

— “Mad Men” producer Matthew Weiner is turning his attention to film now that the latest season is finished. He’s now getting set to helm “You Are Here,” a romantic comedy that he wrote. Independent financing is already in place and the cast will include the likes of Jennifer Aniston and “The Hangover” stars Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis. No word on a synopsis, but he’d better get cracking or he’s going to leave a lot of “Mad Men” fans very disappointed. (Variety)

— Winona Ryder is in talks to join Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in “Black Swan,” the next effort from Darren Aronofsky. The synopsis makes it sound like a ballet-infused “Fight Club.” Portman plays a dancer whose top rival (Kunis) may in fact be a figment of her imagination. Ryder would pirouette into the role of another dancer. (Variety)

— We knew Peter Berg was directing a movie adaptation of the board game “Battleship.” And now we know who the villains will be. Aliens! (Latino Review)

— Strange, big news coming out of “The Wolf Man” camp. The Benicio Del Toro-starring creature feature remake was once set to feature the talents of composer Danny Elfman. This is no longer the case. The man behind such memorable themes as “The Simpsons” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is now off the picture — hitting theaters on February 12 — due to a “scheduling conflict.” Taking his place is Paul Haslinger, who most famously did the score for “Underworld” and the recent “Death Race” remake.

— Guillermo del Toro revealed that he will appear in a cameo in “The Hobbit,” which he is directing. That is all. (TheOneRing.net)
