Comingsoon.net - There were rumors back in November that Russell Brand would play Jack Sparrow's brother in the upcoming fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. He did a recent interview with Access Hollywood and had this to say:
"There's been some talk of doing a 'Pirates' movie, but I've got eight other things to do [including] 'Get Him to the Greek' with Judd Apatow...So I don't know if there'll be time to be a pirate, I've got enough of that in me private life."
I know Russell Brand is the sort of performer, one either loves or loathes (I usually love), but I would feel sort of crushed if he didn't do it. Hey, casting him beats the hell out of those horrific Zac Efron rumors.

Variety - Sergio Castellitto is trying to cast his Don't Move co-star Penelope Cruz in Venuto al mondo (Into the World) - a drama set in present-day, post-war Sarajevo.

indieWIRE - The Tribeca Film Festival reveals its lineup. Playlist points out that there are 26% fewer films that last year, and other than Woody Allen's Whatever Works, there aren't any big names attached to the festival. No worries though, Playlist gives us Karina Lonworth's list of the smaller films to get excited about.

The Hollywood Reporter - The Dark Knight leads the Saturn Awards nominations with 11 nods (I'm still glaring at you Academy). Its biggest competition is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with 9 nominations and Iron Man with 8.

NYPost via ONTD! - My childhood is officially over. After 17 long years, Disney will stop making news episides of The Power Rangers.

Empire - Robin Hood's Merry Men have been cast in Ridley Scott's Robin Hood project. Scott Grimes will play Will Scarlet, Kevin Duran will play Little John, while Alan Doyle will play minstrel Alan A Dayle (a character rarely seen in previous versions of Robin Hood).
