'Robocop' Remake Could Feature Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender
Michael Fassbender may just have landed yet another male lead role as he looks set to be asked to join the new Robocop remake by director Jose Padilha. Padilha revealed his first choice in an interview on Brazilian TV which was translated by Bleeding Cool and showed his interest in capturing the Jane Eyre and X-Men: First Class actor.

Fassbender's career seems to have taken a leap forward this year, with the actor taking a role in no less than five 2011 movies. Padilha's interview revealed he could be the first in line for the Robocop remake:

"I’ll film RoboCop. I’m indeed writing the script, the writer is here with me in Rio, we’ve spent over the last 15 days working together, refining the script.

"I’ll be travelling this Friday back to LA, bringing this new version to discuss with the studio, and maybe begin with the casting, selecting actors… and the idea is to begin filming in February – February or March. That’s the idea, y’know, we never know in the American movie industry. We’re

Kevin Costner Says No To Django Unchained

Kevin Costner
Quentin Tarantino's new slave western film Django Unchained hasn't failed to excite the movie world so far. One reason for this was the proposed cast that Tarantino was planning on bringing together which included Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L Jackson and Jamie Foxx. However, one of the biggest names reportedly attached to the film, Kevin Costner, has followed the example of Will Smith by dropping out of the project, reports IndieWire.

Kevin Costner was rumoured to be playing Ace Woody, a member of Calvin Candie's (Leonardo DiCaprio) crew. However, Costner will now play no part in the film, giving the reason of 'scheduling conflicts'. Costner is already working on a TV movie entitled The Hatfields & The McCoys for the History Channel and will soon be appearing in Zack Snyder's Superman film Man Of Steel.

The search is now on for Quentin Tarantino to find a new Ace. Rumours have already circulated that

Poll Result: Should There Be A Toy Story 4?

The So I Saw This Film readership have voted again and have emphatically said NO to whether there should be another Toy Story film. The poll was posted in response to a comment made recently by Tom Hanks that a fourth film could be on it's way.

I had a sneaky suspicion that the vote would turn out that way. The way I see it, the third movie was the perfect way to end. Successful film series can be put to bed whilst they are still doing well. Otherwise you end up saturating viewers and leaving them with the image of whatever film comes last in their mind. They will forget about the three brilliant movies so far if a fourth film is rushed into release. So take our advice, DON'T DO IT!

Thanks for voting guys. Remember to vote for your favourite Robert Zemeckis film below and to vote in our new poll which this week will be: Eddie Murphy: Good Choice As Oscar Host?

I want to get our readers more involved so if you have any polls you would like to see posted on the site, let us know. Cheers guys!

Eddie Murphy Confirmed As 2012 Oscar Host

Eddie Murphy
In a follow up to our post a few days ago that Eddie Murphy was the first in line to host the next Academy Awards, So I Saw This Film can now confirm that the comedian has been officially chosen. The quick-witted ex stand-up comedian will officially host the ceremony which will take place on the 26th February 2012. The shows producers Brett Ratner and Don Mischer confirmed the decision yesterday.

The shows producers were keen to point out that the Murphy that will turn up on the night will be less like the explicit Axel Foley (Beverley Hill Cop) and more like the family orientated Donkey from Shrek. Ratner told USA Today: "This guy was in Shrek,". "He's done family movies for the past 10 years. He's done Oprah."
"He's very smart and knows this is very much of a family type of show," added Mischer. 
Meanwhile, in a statement Eddie Murphy revealed how honoured he was to have been chosen: “I am enormously honoured

Eddie Murphy Looks Likely To Host The 2012 Oscars

Eddie Murphy in Trading Places
All round funny man Eddie Murphy looks the most likely candidate to host the 2012 Academy Awards, the 84th ceremony to date. Deadline have reported that he is the front-runner so far and the once stand-up comedian could be returning to his origins as a performer.

The producer of the show this time around will be Brett Ratner, who worked with Murphy recently in the film Tower Heist, which will open on the 4th November 2011. He is expected to put Murphy's name forward to Academy president Tom Sherak. With a hugely successful comedy film history and his experience as a stand-up comedian, it's not too surprising that his name looks likely to be put forward. His energy as a performer would be just what is needed and could lead to much satiricism as well as plenty of celebrities getting put in their place (obviously something we all want to see).

The decision has not officially been made yet but, with some sites suggesting he has already been

Steven Soderbergh Quits Film To Pursue A New Art

Steven Soderbergh
Director Steven Soderbergh, best known for the three 'Ocean's' films as well as The Informant!, has decided to give up on his directorial career to pursue a new career as an artist. He plans to become an established painter and revealed his plans in an interview with The New York Times.

The move to a new art form will not come as too much of a surprise after Matt Damon revealed Soderbergh would be leaving show business back in 2010. Soderbergh himself let slip the news back in March when he revealed he had only two films left to shoot. Despite the early signs that revealed his decision, it will surely still come as a shock to film fans, particularly those of Soderbergh's work.

In the interview he revealed that his decision could be reversed if his new art career doesn't go to plan: "I'm interested in exploring another art form while I have the time and ability to do so.
