Grizzly Dailies – Burt Wonderstone, Evil Dead Casting, and Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Welcome to Grizzly Dailies! A new feature where we will cover a bunch of movie news in the manner we love. Jam packing a ton of links and info in one post so you don’t have to waste your valuable time (and ours) by combing through a ton of articles!

Carell, Buscemi, and Carrey in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone – (CinemaBlend/ FilmDrunk)

That’s a powerful line-up, especially when joined by the always gorgeous Olivia Wilde. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone tells the tale of two rival magicians, and if you need a real world comparison think David Blaine vs. Criss Angel. Now I know, that sounds like something nobody wants to see, but it’s got Olivia Wilde in it, so that changes everything. Here’s a shot of Carrel, Wilde, and Buscemi doing what they do… in a glass case of emotion:

And Jim Carrey in one of his most ridiculous outfits yet: And here’s Olivia Wilde on set with Carrey in some sort of wrestling superhero costume? I like her logo… And her and Carrey, doing I-Don’t-Know-What…

Will Ferrel Gets Political in Dog Fight – (CinemaBlend)

In Dog Fight, Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis play politicians running against each other for a small district in South Carolina, which is sure to have hilarious results. Already bringing the humor is this photo of Ferrell’s new straight edged haircut, a far cry from his general curly fro. Also seen in the shot is Jason Sudeikis, who I’m trying really hard to like but has yet to wow me.

First Look at Apatow’s This is 40 -(CinemaBlend)

When news first dropped of the don’t-call-it-a-sequel spin-off to Knocked Up, fans were equal parts excited and uncaring. This is 40 looks like its shaping up to be another comedy that hits home, and tells a story of real people in real life. The real people are of course Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, reprising their roles as Pete and Debbie. Here’s a first look at the actors, along with Maude and Iris Apatow:

Lily Collins Is Evil Dead‘s New Ash… Oh Wait, No She’s Not – (GammaSquad/CinemaBlend)

Word hit a little while ago that Lily Collins was in talks to play the lead role of Mia in the Evil Dead remake, a role that was comparative to the role of Ash that Bruce Campbell made famous in the original. That sparked a lot of debate, but I was interested. If anyone has seen Priest then you know the girl can scream. Anyways, don’t get too excited/upset, because it looks like she has to pass on the movie due to scheduling conflicts. What those conflicts are we don’t know, but expect a replacement casting announcement to come soon.

New Images From Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – (Cinema Blend/ GeekTyrant)

I feel like I don’t need to explain anything at all about this movie. Let’s just look at the title again. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. ‘Nuff said, right? Here are some pictures: The film is directed by Timur Bekmambetov, and stars Benjamin Walker as Lincoln, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Mary Todd Lincoln, Dominic Cooper as Henry Sturgess, and Alan Tudyk as Stephen A. Douglas. Here are some kick ass posters as well:

Grown Ups 2 Gets A Release Date – (CinemaBlend)

And for some movie news a lot of people expected but even more didn’t want, it looks like the Sandler Posse will return for a sequel to their buddy movie that they probably filmed in a weekend while hanging out making money. I know a lot of people who hated Grown Ups and a few people who loved it, I was indifferent. So I feel very blah about this news, but very unsurprised as well. The movie made money, so in Hollywood’s eyes that means a sequel is good to go, regardless of the content. Oh yea, the release date. Grown Ups 2 has been booked to hit theaters on July 12, 2013. And that’s it for this week’s Dailies, we’ll have more movie news for you next week!

  1. Fun fact: For the new Evil Dead movie, supposedly Cory Monteith (Finn from Glee) tried out for the role of David. Baller as fuck! Also, upon discovering that, I found out that he was in an episode of SG-1 that I looooooooooove. Bam!
