Blunt to star in “Animal Crackers” with Krasinski

Emily Blunt has teamed up with her husband John Krasinski for Animal Crackers. The Into The Woods actress and her 35-year-old hubby will both lend their voices to the new cartoon. The couple – who have a 13-month-old daughter, Hazel, together – have joined the star studded cast alongside Ian McKellen, Danny DeVito and Sylvester Stallone.
Emily, 32, and The Office star will play on-screen couple Zoe and Owen Huntington who inherit a circus and find themselves transformed into various creatures after consuming animal-shaped biscuits.
News the pair were to appear in the animation was announced by the film’s co-directors Scott Christain Sava and Tony Bancroft, who believe the couple are perfect for the roles.
Sava told Screen International: “When Emily and John came in and performed their first scenes of the movie together… It was magic. “I can think of no other way of describing what they brought to the film. We had to literally go back and re-storyboard the sequences because they took us to places we never dreamed. Owen and Zoe came to life when Emily and John spoke.”
Harvey Fierstein, Patrick Warburton, Tara Strong and Lydia Taylor also star in the movie which is set to hit cinemas next year.


Emily Blunt Joins ‘Frozen 2’ Cast?

Frozen 2 release date rumors spark anew as Disney has officially confirmed the sequel’s production. Frozen director Jennifer Lee broke the internet when she made the announcement on her Twitter account. Lee and co-director Chris Buck will reportedly return to helm the sequel. As for the Frozen 2 release date, fans will just have to wait for further updates from the House of Mouse.
Disney has just released a Frozen short called Frozen Fever just recently. The 7-minute short premiered a few days ago, coinciding with another Disney movie, Cinderella. The movie featured the return of Elsa, Anna, Olaf and Kristoff.
Previous Frozen 2 cast rumors are starting to link Into the Woods star Emily Blunt to the sequel! Did she confirm her role for the highly anticipated follow-up flick? Unfortunately, the rumors were quickly gunned down after Emily addressed them herself. “No, no! That [series] is for my friend Kristen Bell, who just CRUSHED it, and I am so happy for her. So no. I don’t know. There’s just never going to be another Elsa and an Anna. There’s just can’t,” she said.


Chastain + Blunt Confirmed for “Snow White and the Huntsman” Prequel

Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt will join Charlize Theron in the prequel to the highly successful 2012 film Snow White and the Huntsman. Chastain is the latest cast member to have been confirmed for the movie to be titled The Huntsman which will officially hit theaters on April 22, 2016.
A few weeks ago, Emily Blunt was taken on the movie to play the role of the villainous sister of Ravena, a role that shall be reprised by Charlize Theron. Chris Hemsworth will also reprise his role as Eric, the huntsman.
The addition of Blunt and Chastain more than makes up for the movie’s decision to ditch actress Kristen Stewart, who played the role of Snow White in the first film, and also her titular character. Universal has yet to announce the character of Jessica Chastain in the movie but a triumvirate of three beautiful women plus Chris Hemsworth already gives The Huntsman an inside track on the box office.
The Huntsman will do away with the character of Snow White. Accordingly, it will focus on how Eric and Ravenna crossed paths long before Snow White became part of their lives. The story reportedly will have Eric searching for a stolen magic mirror that revives an old grudge between him and the Snow Queen. Since Snow White would not be in the story, there were reports that the dwarves will not be included in the prequel film likewise. However, Nick Frost, the lead dwarf character in Snow White and the Huntsman is returning to The Huntsman so there will be at least one dwarf in the film. It was not clear if the other dwarf characters will also join Nick Frost in the movie.

Emily Blunt: I want to be good at other stuff

Emily Blunt would like to be known for something else as well as stardom. The 31-year-old actress admits she has a work ethic that makes her well-suited to the entertainment sphere, but insists she’d love to broaden her skillset.
When it was suggested she’s good at stardom, Emily replied: “God, I’d like to be good at other stuff, but I know what you mean. Some people are crap at it. And I think I am a good worker. “But what I think is that I really love this job, and I’m kind of in love with it, even though it’s not everything that I am.”
While Emily is good at acting in front of a camera, she hasn’t always been such a confident public speaker having suffered with a stutter as a child. She explained: “As a kid I just stopped talking. It got very bad. I listened a lot because that’s all I did. Really. And it’s not meant to be a sob story, it was just the reality. Which was that I felt embarrassed to speak in front of people.”
Fortunately, Emily managed to overcome her speech impediment when she discovered her love of acting. The Into The Woods star added to The Times newspaper: “I did speak fluently for the first time when I did a play in school, aged nine.”


Emily Blunt’s singing fear

Emily Blunt says singing in Into The Woods was like ‘showing her underwear’.
The British actress admits she was terrified at the thought of performing in front of her co-stars like Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick and James Corden but says all the cast shared her fears of doing something so ‘intimate’. She said: “My knees were knocking walking into the auditions. It’s a very intimate and personal thing to sing for somebody, especially a musical god like Rob Marshall.
“It’s why people have to be drunk to do karaoke. “On the first day of rehearsals there was a hideous moment when Rob said, ‘OK, we’re going to sing now’ and everybody just screamed. Because here it was, the moment where everybody had to suddenly show their underwear.”
Despite her apprehension, Emily enjoys singing karaoke – but can’t get up in front of other people if she hasn’t had a few drinks first. She told Stylist magazine: “I would never go into [New York karaoke bar] Sing Sing without a tonne of margaritas. “I love Janis Joplin. Sometimes if I’m coerced I’ll do Aerosmith’s ‘I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing’. And I love ‘Try a Little Tenderness’ by Otis Redding, but that’s usually later on in the night.”
