from corset to slippers

I loved the title of this article so i justhad to post it, it also has some nice quotes so…enjoy

After being trussed up in bone-crushing corsets to play the title role in Young Victoria, Emily Blunt has found a project that will hopefully involve a less restrictive wardrobe.

Mandrake hears that the enchanting 26-year-old actress is to play a ballerina who throws the life of a congressman, played by Matt Damon, into turmoil in a sci-fi thriller entitled The Adjustment Bureau.

If the clothes are more comfortable, the part still has its challenges. “I’m going to dance boot camp,” says Blunt. “I’ll never be at the same standard as a professional, but hopefully I’ll be able to do a little bit.

“I didn’t do ballet when I was a child. I gave it up when I was three – in some sort of bratty rage, claiming it hurt my feet.”

Anthony Mackie gets ‘Adjustment’

Anthony Mackie (“The Hurt Locker”) has been cast in “The Adjustment Bureau,” MRC’s sci-fi thriller for Universal with Matt Damon and Emily Blunt starring, and George Nolfi directing from his own script.

Nolfi also will produce alongside Chris Moore, Michael Hackett and Bill Carraro.

“The Adjustment Bureau,” adapted from Philip K. Dick’s short story, centers on a smooth-talking congressman whose political future is thrown in doubt by the arrival of a mysterious ballerina in his life.

Mackie is appearing in “The Bacchae” in Gotham as part of Shakespeare in the Park. “The Adjustment Bureau” will shoot in New York immediately following the wrap of the play.

Wolfman Update

Even though its release date has been pushed back several times, the updated Wolf Man film continues to put out promotional material. Over at Bloody Disgusting, a few new photos have been released and they feature stars Benicio del Toro and Emily Blunt in action. They mostly show del Toro in his “man state” as opposed to his werewolf counterpart, but it’s better than nothing.

This doesn’t look that bad, why is Universal treating it like an unwanted stepchild? When I initially heard they were remaking the film, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical. But when the cast came up, there was no doubt in my mind that this could turn out decent. Wolf Man will be released next year on February 12th, and is directed by Joe Johnston. Will they move the date again, I hope not.
