Superhero Bits: Captain America Gets New Costume for ‘The Avengers,’ ‘X-Men: First Class’ is a ‘Reinvention,’ ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Dp Talks

Superhero Bits: Captain America Gets New Costume for ‘The Avengers,’ ‘X-Men: First Class’ is a ‘Reinvention,’ ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Dp Talks
[1] Welcome back from the weekend, everyone. We've got some quick superhero bits and pieces to kick off your week. Captain America: The First Avenger star Chris Evans revealed in an interview that his character would be getting a new costume for the upcoming The Avengers film, due out 2012. This isn't a huge surprise, seeing as this summer's Captain America film takes place in the World War II era and next summer's The Avengers takes place in the modern day -- some updates were probably inevitable. But Evans' talking about the new costume might indicate that the Avengers costume is significantly different from the familiar red, white and blue one we've already seen from The First Avenger. Evans didn't reveal much else about what the new costume would actually look like, though he did say it was "awesome," "really cool," and "pretty rad."

James Franco, Winona Ryder Team For Psychological Thriller ‘The Stare’

A new production company, Waterstone Entertainment, enters the media fray with The Stare, a drama starring James Franco and Winona Ryder, to be directed by Jay Anania. [Deadline]

The film focuses on a playwright (Ryder), whose mind begins to unravel as she starts on a new production. Franco (who is also producing), plays an actor performing in the play. The plot sounds quite a bit like Black Swan – only blessedly free of ballet and Natalie Portman.

Waterstone, formed by producer Jeff Kalligheri and Texas real estate developer and producer Steve Bowen, has two more projects in development, both with Franco producing (and one he’s apparently directing). According to Kalligheri, Waterstone will strike deals with an independent distributor, as well as offering minimum guarantees on films and will look for financial opportunities on the films they have in their pipeline. There is no word on whether or not Franco’s Waterstone

Jay Anania, who helmed Franco in the film Shadow and Lies (we had to look it up on IMDb too) and is a teacher who heads the directing program at the graduate film school at Nyu has written and will direct the drama in which;

a playwright (Ryder) finds her mind beginning to warp as she struggles to launch her next production. She’s plagued by dreams and visions of being watched, but can’t decide if she’s at the center of a manipulative plot or simply losing her grip on reality. Franco plays one of the performers in the playwright’s production.

Shooting begins May 6th in New York.

James Franco and Winona Ryder Get Into a Staring Contest

Waterstone Entertainment is a brand spanking new production company that has been put together by producer Jeff Kalligheri (Lake Placid) and a Texas real estate developer named Steve Bowen. I know the questions you’re asking, and I’ve got the answers. Firstly, no, the new company’s logo doesn’t include Texas longhorns anywhere in its design. And secondly, yes, they are launching their brand by making a movie starring James Franco. The Stare is set to be directed by Jay Anania (who previously worked with Franco in Shadows & Lies) and to star Franco and Winona Ryder. Perhaps piggybacking on the momentum of Ryder’s role in Black Swan, The Stare will be about a playwright whose mind begins to slip off into crazyland while she’s working on her next project. Over the course of the film things get so bad that she loses track of whether she is just having paranoid delusions, or

Idris Elba Is The Next Alex Cross

Idris Elba has one of the coolest names. It's probably not for that reason he's doing so well at the moment, but it has to be a factor. According to Deadline, he is to play the lead in Cross, the latest installment to be adapted from James Patterson's Dr. Alex Cross saga.

Originally played by Morgan Freeman in the two previous films made about the character, in 1997's Kiss The Girls and 2001's Along Came A Spider, it is thought that David Twohy, who is directing, desired a younger lead than Freeman so that he could put the 'action' back into 'action hero'.

The novel that the film is based on follows Dr. Cross as he tracks a serial rapist whom he suspects of killing his pregnant wife years before. Twohy is re-working the original script by Kerry Williamson, and it will be produced by Lloyd Levin, Belle Avery,
