Ugh, they're the most unlikely couple! Keira Knightley and Ray Winstone are set to play lovers in a new gangster flick, "London Boulevard."
The actors are getting ready to co-star with Colin Farrell and Anna Friel. And the film is the first directorial project by William Monahan, the fantastic writer of "The Departed."
So Knightley is going to play a reclusive actress who becomes romantically involved with Winstone. So where is Farrell in the picture?
"London Boulevard" is set to start shooting in the U.K. this summer.

Okay, so the cast is almost complete, but the title of the new Robin Hood film is still up in the air!

I can't wait to see this film! With an outstanding cast, and a great director (Michael Mann), this should be an entertaining and cerebral experience!

Okay, so "Fast and Furious" opened big! In the US, the fourth film in the franchise opened with $72.5 million in ticket sales.
And in the international market, the film's total is topping $200 million.
So no wonder, the producers and the main cast are planning their fifth film of the franchise!
But they better do this right this time, because honestly? The fourth film was the weakest of the bunch!
Paul Walker visited Los Angeles radio show Valentine in the Morning and said, "This was supposed to be it... Without question, the way that thing's opened up, Vin (Diesel, co-star) and I will be coming back. We're making a fifth one and we're going to Brazil. That's it!
"And I don't think the best one (film) has been done yet. I think we could easily come back and make the best one."
I'm keeping my fingers crossed Mister Paul, I hope you're right! Make the best one, and end the franchise on a high note!
