Now that Halle Berry is locked into the starring role, those involved with The Hive have begun to extend their feelers and pull in the supporting cast. And they’re off to a good start with this first pick, as Variety informs us that Abigail Breslin has come on board the thriller — in a crucial role, no less. Brad Anderson‘s film, written by Rich D’Ovidio, stars Berry as “a 911 emergency operator who must face her own fears in order to save a teenage girl from a disturbed killer.” So, guess who Little Miss Sunshine plays.
Production will be underway in late June.
Now let’s get aggressive. When talking to The Sun (via Moviehole) British actor Vinnie Jones (Snatch) revealed that he may have a part in The Tomb, the forthcoming actioner that Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger will make their first post-Expendables 2 collaboration. (Jim Caviezel will also star.) Jones didn’t say a whole lot about the opportunity, only promising that “I’ll be prepared if the action scenes get a bit too heavy for them.”
Mikael Håfström (1408) is directing the film, which will have Stallone play a man attempting to escape from a prison… that he built! Jones should fit into the prison setting rather well — another way of saying the guy kind of looks like a convict — and he could inject a little bit of brutish fun into a movie that, otherwise, sounds like a drag.
Are you intrigued by either actor’s participation, or the films they’re joining?

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]
