Things We Saw Today: Hayley Atwell Wants to Bring Back Agent Carter, “100 Percent”

At MegaCon in Orlando, Florida this weekend, Nerdist reports that Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell was adamant that, given a chance, she'd bring the show back. Although that in no way guarantees we'll be getting more Peggy in our future, it's nice to know that Atwell, who's set to star next in ABC's Conviction, won't forget Peggy's value anytime soon.

The Mary Sue Interview: Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and the Cast of The Seventh Son

The Dude transcribes.

It's not the cast of Seventh Son's fault the movie is a stinker (for more on what stinks and who dealt it, look for our review tomorrow). At a press junket for the film last Saturday, Extreme Good Sports Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Ben Barnes were more than happy to talk about their experience working on what Bridges calls "the Big Lebowski prequel."

Julianne Moore Vamps It Up In New Trailer for Fantasy Actioner Seventh Son

Was that an AXE BONE WHIP?!

Seventh Son, starring Jeff Bridges as a witch-hunter, Ben Barnes as his first-day-on-the-job apprentice, and Julianne Moore as a dragon-witch thing, has been floundering around for a while now–we first told you about it over a year ago. Watching this new trailer, I can’t imagine why Legendary Pictures hasn't rushed to get this absolute gem into theaters.

Things We Saw Today: First Images From The Giver Are Sadly Bereft of Meryl Streep

Things We Saw Today

Remember how Meryl Streep is going to be in The Giver? So exciting. But this pic has Jeff Bridges, which is pretty dang cool by itself. Collider has the other picture, featuring main character Jonas (aged up from 12 to 16) and A Baby.

Seventh Son Features Julianne Moore as Definitely a Witch, Possibly a Dragon

Here Be Dragons

Julianne Moore is a witch, I mean... she's a dragon-witch. Uh, maybe she's just a dragon? But she was still Julianne Moore. Julianne Moore. (This joke brought to you by the internet in 2003.)

The Little Prince Movie Gets Director, Oscar-Winning Actors For Me To Be Worried At

I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion

I'm not exactly sure why I'm so worried about this animated adaptation of The Little Prince. It's not like Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic children's novella is untouched by the hands of film and TV. And there's nothing wrong with adaptation on a basic level. There's just something about the notion of a star-filled version of the notoriously sad book that puts me on high alert. Don't happi-fy this one, Hollywood. That said, the actors involved give me no small bit of hope.

Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges See And Fight Dead People In The R.I.P.D. Trailer

Cautiously Optimistic

I know I'm not the only one who sees R.I.P.D. and reads B.P.R.D. Both are comic books from Dark Horse and both are based around the supernatural. But only one is going to be a movie out this summer. Based on the comic from Peter Lenkov and Lucas Marangon, R.I.P.D. stars Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, and Mary-Louise Parker. Susana describes it as, "What if Jeff Bridges did a funny voice and then things exploded: The Movie." See what you think...

According to Lois Lowry, The Giver Movie is On Its Way, Complete With Jeff Bridges

Cautiously Optimistic

These days, it seems like Hollywood has finally discovered that dystopian young adult fiction is a trend that can make bunches at the box office, thanks to The Hunger Games. We can also look forward to The Host and the long awaited advent of a big budget Ender's Game adaptation. But older young adults in their twenties and thirties can sit around saying "In my day, we walked fifteen miles to the library to pick up copies of Garth Nix's Shade's Children and Lois Lowry's The Giver. And then we wrote our book reports with pencil and paper! And then gave it to our parents to spellcheck!" But I actually had The Giver read to me at bedtime before I was ever assigned it in school, so I guess I have the most hipster dystopian YA cred of all.

Tron 3 Has Found A Writer But Will It Have An Audience?

Thank You?

I remember seeing preview footage of Tron: Legacy at San Diego Comic-Con and being pretty impressed. The 3D actually made sense and they seemed to have a good handle on a story that would do the original film justice. When I saw the full movie I thought it was good, not great, and didn't expect them to make any more. While the idea was bounced around for a while, it looks like it's finally gaining momentum.

Bruce Boxleitner Says Tron 3 is On …3

And So It Begins

Can't... not... rhyme... There have been rumors of yet a third dip into the setting of Tron since literally before the DVD release of Tron: Legacy. No, wait, I just checked. They've been around since the April before Tron: Legacy's December release. So lets just say that for better or worse there's a precedent, and furthermore one does not cast Cillian Murphy in a role with three minutes of screentime unless perhaps one plans to use his character in a later movie. And now the Tron sequel's sequel is getting its confirmation biased by none other than Bruce Boxleitner, Tron himself.

Supermodel Marisa Miller Playing Jeff Bridges in R.I.P.D.

Not a Misprint

Okay, R.I.P.D., now you have our attention: In the latest casting news for the film adaptation of the Dark Horse title Rest In Peace Department, it was announced that Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated model Marisa Miller will be playing the part of ... Jeff Bridges. Or, at least, she will be playing the corporeal version of the dead police officer named Bo whose spirit is being played by Jeff Bridges. Because, as you may have guessed, the Rest In Peace Department is made up of dead cops who answer to God.

Jeff Bridges Genuinely Cares About Your Vaginal Well-Being [Video]

I Guess I Can't Argue With That

While appearing on The Colbert Report to promote his new country music album (!), Jeff Bridges went on a short rift to quickly promote Summer's Eve products. Because he cares. Stephen Colbert has also discussed Summer's Eve products on his show, mostly because it had a really stupid ad campaign. We, "Women," endorse Jeff Bridges as our official spokesdude for Summer's Eve products. No more stupid fist puppets depicting racial stereotypes. Just Jeff Bridges. Pleaseandthankyou. (Splitsider)

Jeff Bridges Might Go Forward With Adapting The Giver to Film

And So It Begins

In 2006 Jeff Bridges and director Vadim Perelman (House of Sand and Fog) came very close to producing a film adaptation of Lois Lowry's classic The Giver. The film never got off the ground, however, and in 2007 Warner Bros. took over the rights. Now, Bridges and producer Nikki Silver have re-acquired the rights and are planning to try again.

True Grit Trailer

The trailer has dropped for True Grit, the Coen Brothers' forthcoming adaptation of Charles Portis' 1968 novel of the same name (previously adapted for a film starring John Wayne) and in its latest iteration, starring Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin, Matt Damon, and Hailee Steinfeld. Synopsis:

Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him — over his objections — to hunt down Chaney. Her father’s blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.

Is This Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy Soundtrack?

If this is real, it would be a leak of some magnitude: One YouTube user, alexdaft26, has uploaded what purports to be the entirety of the Tron Legacy soundtrack as composed by Daft Punk. From afar, it sounds well Daft Punk-y and like it certainly could be the soundtrack to a movie about people who wear glowing suits and ride around on lightcycles, but there are a few reasons to suspect it isn't: I'll confess I haven't gotten the chance to listen to the whole thing and must rely on second-hand information, but it supposedly does not quite match with what official music has been released by Disney.

Sonic comparisons aside, the biggest reason to suspect these might not be real is that you can still listen to them: The tracks were uploaded on July 26th, eons ago in Internet time, and started getting major attention as of yesterday, with the compilation track racking up close to 30,000 hits on YouTube. Disney has been very protective of Tron stuff, so it's a good bet that if these are real, they'll be gone by the end of the day today. Which is all the more reason to hit the jump and listen to them now while you can: Think of it as an investment in being up on things.
