Reports say Meryl Streep is doing one of the voices in Wes Anderson’s upcoming animated movie, “The Fantastic Mr. Fox.” Streep will reportedly be replacing Cate Blanchett. Streep joins a pretty great cast. Already cast in the movie are George Clooney, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson, Michael Gamobn, Adrien Brody and Wes Anderson himself.
This should be an interesting movie. Anderson was originally co-directing the movie with Henry Selick, who ended up leaving the project to make the wonderful “Coraline.” Anderson and Selick had previously collborated on the sea-life in “The Life Aquatic.”
Ridley Scott’s new movie, “Robin Hood,” is set for release May 24th, 2010.
This now completely fills the month of May with high-profile releases. (The other films include “Shrek 4,” “Prince of Persia,” and, um, oh yeah,”Iron Man 2.”
“Hood” stars Russell Crows as Robin Hood and Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian. The two most recent historical films that Scott’s done have been “Gladitor,” and “Kingdom of Heaven.” Hope this one leans more towards “Gladiator,” instead of “Kingdom of Heaven.”
