"The Social Network" editors, Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter, won the ACE Eddie Award for Best Edited Dramatic Feature at the 61st Annual ACE Eddie Awards. The David Fincher film beat "Black Swan," "The Fighter," "Inception," and "The King's Speech." We'll see if "The Social Network" will beat those movies (except for "Inception" which was not nominated in favor of "127 Hours") at the upcoming 83rd Academy Awards.

Will Colin Firth Join "My Fair Lady?"  

First of all, I thought, what was Sony Pictures thinking of remaking the fantastic 1964 musical "My Fair Lady?" And then I heard Colin Firth, who is set to go home with an Oscar for "The King's Speech," is being courted to star as Henry Higgins, played by Rex Harrison in the original. Not bad at all! I could imagine Firth in the Henry Higgins role. Plus, the actor has proven he could sing in 2008's "Mamma Mia!"

And then I heard that Carey Mulligan is already attached to play Eliza Doolittle. She has pretty big shoes to fill with the memorable Audrey Hepburn in the original role. But then it's Mulligan. She can act, I don't know if she can sing, but the tandem of Mulligan and Firth are making me so excited! The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain indeed!

Hollywood.com via Daily Mail also revealed that once upon a time, Hugh Grant was supposed to be taking the Henry Higgins role but then again, Grant has not starred in any film worthy of mentioning, hence, Firth got the role.

For now, let's check the trailer of the original "My Fair Lady" and imagine Mulligan and Firth in the roles of Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins!

Check Out "Hall Pass" Red Band Trailer! Have I Told You I Laughed My Booty Off With This Film? 
I will post my interviews with the cast very soon! But I had a great time talking to Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer, and the Farrelly brothers (Christina Applegate was only available for a limited time since she just had a baby).

For now, check out the red band trailer of this funny comedy, then come back soon for the interviews, y'hear?

Juliette Binoche Joins Robert Pattinson in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" 

As we told you in January, Robert Pattinson has signed to star in "Cosmopolis" from director David Cronenberg based on the novel by Don DeLillo. (See Robert Pattinson to Play Multi-Billionaire in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis")

Now comes casting news. Paul Giamatti and Matthieu Almaric have been confirmed, and joining them is the fantastic Juliette Binoche.

This project is a far cry for Cronenberg, known as the King of Venereal Horror or the Baron of Blood. "Cosmopolis" is not an outright bloody tale, but perhaps, the horrors are within a young billionaire (Pattinson) who hops in his limo to get a haircut but in a course of traveling across Manhattan, loses his fortune, cheats on his wife, and is threatened by two mysterious folks (one of them will be Giamatti).

It is still unclear what character Binoche would be playing, but can "Cosmopolis" elevate Pattinson's credibility? Can the dude act? From what he showed us in last year's "Remember Me," Pattinson has passion, he just needs a great director to help him, and I'm sure, Cronenberg would be happy to oblige (check out my interview with Pattinson for "Remember Me" right here).
