A brand new Italian posted for “The Hangover: Part II” has hit the web courtesy of MoviePlayer (via Latino Review). There are certain things we’re a bit concerned about in the image, like those claw marks on Stu’s chair and the glazed expression on Alan’s face, but mostly we’re just glad we only have to wait until May 26 to see what shenanigans the boys are up to this time.
After the jump, find out what surprising summer blockbuster will be playing at Cannes, more information about the movie Michael Mann and Paul Haggis are teaming for, and whether or not the monkeys speak in “Rise of the Apes.”
“Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” To Sail Into Cannes
Deadline has learned via French newspaper Le Figaro that “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” will be making its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 14. It’s an interesting choice to say the least, but it will seemingly guarantee an appearance by fest favorites Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz, and also will be in good company with Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris” and Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life.”
Michael Mann And Paul Haggis Team Up For “Gold”
Michael Mann and Paul Haggis are looking to team up to direct the contemporary thriller “Gold,” which was written by “Friday Night Lights” producers Patrick Massett and John Zinman. The Hollywood Reporter says no actors are attached yet and the project is still in early development, but it’s looking good for Mann and Haggis’s involvement.
“Rise Of The Apes” Is Better Seen Than Heard
Or at least, the apes are. The Los Angeles Times has learned that the simian creatures in “Rise of the Apes” will not have the power of speech during the majority of the film. Since “Rise” is an origin story, the main ape Caesar will have to have his mutation evolve over time, so we’re guessing we might hear a few words come out of his mouth by the end of the flick.
Universal Seeks “Oblivion”
Joseph Kosinski’s “Oblivion” was ditched by Disney earlier this year, but now Deadline has learned that Universal is in talks to pick it up. According to them, the deal will be determined by whether or not Kosinski can bring the budget to around $100 million. Tom Cruise remains a likely bet to star in the movie.
Who Should Be “The Crow”?
Some of the biggest news of the day was that Bradley Cooper might star in a remake of “The Crow.” Since that deal wasn’t set in stone, Splash Page decided to suggest some other actors for the role. We couldn’t agree with their picks of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Christian Bale, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hardy and Robert Pattinson more if we had thought of them ourselves.
