Elisabeth Shue Talks About "Piranha 3D" and Answers the Big Question -- What the Heck Is She Doing in This Movie? 

I love Elizabeth Shue! She's very sweet and a fantastic actress. So what the heck is she doing in "Piranha 3D?" In this interview, we talked about that, plus:

*** What attracted her to the role of Julie Forester
*** She explained her character and the film's plot
*** Working with Alexander Aja and the iconic actors such as Richard Dreyfuss
*** What's next for her? Certainly not "Alligator 3D" (Honestly, her upcoming films are very interesting!)


Here's more info on "Piranha 3D" from Yahoo:

Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break, a riot of sun and drunken fun. But this year, there's something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers; A new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents.

"Nanny McPhee Returns" Movie Review! How Many Kisses Does Emma Thompson Deserve? 

I was not particularly fond of the first “Nanny McPhee” movie released in 2005. While I found the cast, headed by Emma Thompson as the magical nanny, appealing, the film was ultimately unrewarding. So to my surprise, the sequel, simply called “Nanny McPhee Returns,” is not only satisfying, it’s also quite delightful.

Just like the first film, this one is also written by Thompson based on characters created by Christianna Brand from the “Nurse Matilda” books. The Academy award-winning actress and screenwriter also returns as the unusual and hideous-looking woman who calls herself a “government nanny.” Read More...

David Fincher Finds His "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" 

After weeks of speculation, Sony has finally announced that Rooney Mara will play the memorable computer hacker character of Lisbeth Salander in the three-picture adaptation of Stieg Larsson's Millenium trilogy. The first film of the series is "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." David Fincher will direct the film from a screenplay by Steve Zaillian.

Mara is an American actress who starred in 2010's "Youth in Revolt" and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" remake. She previously worked with Fincher in the upcoming Facebook drama "The Social Network."

The actress will be co-starring with Daniel Craig in the U.S. version. Craig will star as the journalist Mikael Blomkvist. Noomi Rapace played the Salander role and Michael Nyqvist starred as Blomkvist in the original Swedish version.

According to EW.com, the plan is to have all the players speak with Swedish accents. Craig, I think, could pull this off, but let's wait and see if Mara can channel her inner Swede.
