Emily Blunt to star in ‘Sicario’?!

Lately, Canadian director Denis Villeneuve has been churning out features. Last fall, he released the crime-thriller Prisoners. Then February brought its follow-up, the mystery movie Enemy. Now, he’s already looking ahead to his next venture Sicario, and is eying Emily Blunt to headline it.
Variety reports Blunt has entered into negotiations about fronting Sicario, a thriller penned by Taylor Sheridan that follows a Tucson, Arizona-based police officer to the Mexican border on a quest to track down a dangerous drug lord. Joining the cop in this dangerous road trip are a pair of mercenaries. It’s a slight description, and one that leaves us with only a vague idea as to which role Blunt might play.
As there is no indication of the gender of the four characters, Blunt could be up for any of the above, though something tells me she might not be super convincing if the drug lord is meant to be a Mexican drug lord. Given that Variety is saying Blunt will star in the feature, it’s possible she’s up to play the lead cop part. Let’s hope so. It’d be a real downer to find out she’s some sidekick girlfriend/love interest. She’s done that enough. Give her a gun, and let her loose on the hero role.

James Corden On “Into The Woods”

Recent Tony Award-winning stage and screen star James Corden opens up about his lead role in the forthcoming big screen edition of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s beloved fairy tale-themed musical Into The Woods, co-starring Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp, as part of a new interview.
Addressing the recent UK shoot of the Rob Marshall-directed film, Corden relates, “I mean, just the best filming experience of my life – definitely.” Corden continued, “It’s directed by Rob Marshall – he directed Chicago and the last Pirates of the Caribbean film. I just loved it so much.”
Commenting on co-star Meryl Streep and the various scenes they are paired up in, Corden shares, “Almost all of my scenes are with Meryl, really – me and Emily [Blunt]; Emily plays the Baker’s Wife. We’re sort of the characters at the center of this film who go on a journey into these woods.” “I mean, yeah, just being in a room with her – she’s so aware of how you feel! She knows that she’s Meryl Streep and you’re you, so she does everything to just put you at ease – and, she takes the work incredibly seriously and doesn’t take herself seriously one bit, which makes for a lovely work atmosphere. It’s amazing,” Corden candidly reveals of the onscreen collaboration with Streep, who plays The Witch in the film.
Furthermore, Corden says, “Everyone sings in Into The Woods – we all sing. But, it’s not sort of sung throughout like Les Miserables – there are scenes and songs.”
