Bill’s choices are...
Earlier this week, Bill Murray took to the Toronto Star to give his opinion on who should play Ghostbusters in the coming and long-delayed third installment being developed by Paul Feig.
“Melissa (McCarthy) would be a spectacular Ghostbuster,” he said. “And Kristen Wiig is so funny — God, she’s funny! I like this girl Linda Cardellini a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there.”
He’ll be back?
Never miss a local story.
Though moviegoers might not be all that interested in a fifth “Pirates of the Caribbean,” Orlando Bloom says he is.
Bloom was absent from the fourth chapter, but he says there has been some talk of Will Turner’s return.
“I’m open to it,” Bloom told the Daily Mail. “That whole experience working with Johnny (Depp) and (director) Gore (Verbinski) was really amazing for me. I had a great time working with Johnny, one of the reasons I jumped at the opportunity (to be in the first Pirates) was because Johnny was involved.”
“Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam tells Us Weekly he dropped out of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie because of scheduling conflicts and pressure.
“I was going to finish filming ‘Sons’ at, like, 11 p.m. Friday night, get on the plane Saturday morning to Vancouver for ‘Fifty,’ missing the whole first week of rehearsal and start shooting Monday morning,” he said. “And I was going to shoot that film, wrap that on the Wednesday and the following Monday I was going to start shooting (Guillermo del Toro’s) ‘Crimson Peak.’ I just had like … frankly, something of a nervous breakdown.”
He was particularly bummed because “Fifty” could be huge.
“I really didn’t want to fail on such a grand scale, and I just couldn’t transition from Jax Teller to Christian Grey in 48 hours,” he said. “It’s painful because I loved the character and I wanted to do it. I’m also a man of my word.”
