SKYFALL

"Skyfall" star Naomie Harris spoke with The Huffington Post about her role as the latest Bond girl and whether we might see Idris Elba as the first black James Bond.

"I didn’t realize that there was this talk and then I did a film with Idris [Elba] and he said that he met Barbara Broccoli [James Bond producer] and that it does seem like there is a possibility in the future that there could very well be a black James Bond," Harris told The Huffington Post. "And I would have to vote for Idris because I just finished working with him and he’s a great guy." [Laughs]

EVIL DEAD

"Evil Dead" star Jane Levy spoke with Collider about her role in the film, what to expect from the remake and her experience with some of the practical effects on set.

"There was so much blood that I got a terrible ear infection because it all got stuck in my ear," Levy told Collider. "A doctor there said it was the worst ear infection he’d ever seen in his life. I couldn’t hear for three weeks. My balance was all off. My head hurt. I was so tired. I got buried alive. I had tubes stuck in all these orifices so I could projectile vomit, so I could projectile bleed. Ninety percent of the movie I’m soaking wet. It was the middle of winter. We shot outside. It was so, so, so tough. It made my job a little bit easier because I already looked like the scariest person you’ve ever seen with all my prosthetics. And I was really wanting to go home all the time, just like my character. I was wet and tired. I was crying because of that."

In anticipation of the red band teaser launch later today, the Evil Dead Facebook page has posted a brief look to tide fans over.

WANTED 2

Hollywood.com has an update on "Wanted 2," this time with the development that Angelina Jolie won't be returning as Fox for the second film -- rather, the writers have penned an entirely new female role for the sequel.

"The only thing I can tell you is that Wesley [James McAvoy] is now, four years later, recruiting a young woman who is in his situation in the first movie," "Wanted" screenwriter Derek Haas told Hollywood.com. "She's got a sh**ty life. He's sort of in the Fox role. This new girl is brought into the world."
