Odds and ends from Thursday:
- According to the Hollywood Reporter, two more actors will be joining Ryan Phillippe in Kimberly Pierce's (Boys Don't Cry) drama Stop Loss. Pic, which revolves around a solider (Phillippe) who returns home from Iraq, only to be called back through the military's stop-loss program, has enlisted Timothy Olyphant and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to join its cast. Olyphant will play a "no-nonsense military man," while Gordon-Levitt takes on the role of a returning solider whose personal life is falling apart.
- THINKFilms has nabbed all North American distribution rights for 10 Items or Less, directed by Brad Silberling. The character comedy, which stars Morgan Freeman and Paz Vega, revolves around a picky big-time actor whose reluctance to take on certain roles leaves him suffering through a dry-spell. While considering a role as a supermarket manager, he slowly develops a close relationship with the shop's feisty cashier and, based on the description, it appears the two learn some life-lessons along the way.
- Okay, the best line from the new Casino Royale trailer definitely belongs to Eva Green. While sitting across from Bond (Daniel Craig) on a train, talking business, she goes "I will keep my eye on our governments money and off your perfectly-formed ass." Brilliant! Best. Line. Ever. And that's just a tiny bit worth of this fantastic trailer. If you're one of those people who still needs to be convinced of Casino Royale's awesomeness, then you simply must check out the new rock-your-socks-off preview over on Moviefone. Trust me on this ... it's worth it.
