September 27, 2010 Leave a comment

It was a couple of months ago when actor Simbu mentioned that he will be signing a big budget film by September.Now Simbu has made official confirmations about the film titled “Vettai Mannan’.

“Vettai Mannan’ will be produced by S.S. Chakravarthy under the banner of Nic Arts. Earlier, the duo was supposed to work on their other project titled Vaaliban. “Vettai Mannan’ was supposed to be directed by Simbu himself and he was reported to be playing dual roles. However, the film was shelved at the last moment as Simbu signed a couple of films at the same time.

“Vettai Mannan’ will be directed by debutant Nelson and three heroines will be pairing with Simbu. Buzz is that a couple of Bollywood’s leading actresses will be signed for this film, which will go on floors shortly.

Vettai Mannan will be shot across various parts of the United States of America, Mexico and Chennai. Simbu’s close buddy Yuvan Shankar Raja will score music and this is the fourth time, they are coming together again. Their previous films Manmadhan, Vallavan and Silambattam were tremendous hits. Technicians from Hollywood are likely to be roped in for the film.

At the moment, Simbu has completed shooting the first schedule of Vaanam, a remake of Telugu movie Vedam. Another film titled Poda Podi that marks the debut of Sarath Kumar’s daughter Varalakshmi is being shot in London.

“Inception” Grabs Slim Lead Over “Salt”

July 24, 2010 1 comment

It sure looks like it will be another big weekend at the box office for the recently released flick, “Inception,” according to early estimates.

The film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, took the number one spot on its opening weekend and is predicted to stay there this weekend, as well, with earnings nearing $40 million.

Not far behind, however, is the highly-anticipated movie “Salt” starring Angelina Jolie. Estimates are leaning toward a $35 million opening weekend for the CIA thriller.

Another one to keep your eye on is the family-friendly “Ramona and Beezus” film starring Selena Gomez, which is expected to fare quite well during its opening weekend.

Angelina Jolie Gets ‘Salt’-y At Comic-Con

July 23, 2010 Leave a comment

Angelina Jolie wasted no time heading down to the San Diego Comic-Con International.

Access Hollywood sources claimed to have spotted the “Salt” star making a brief appearance at the movie’s booth at the popular convention’s Preview Night on Wednesday.

However, Sony, the studio behind the film, apparently wants Angelina’s alleged appearance kept under wraps – the studio told Access the sighting report was “not true” when asked for comment.

Comic-Con’s “Salt” panel kicks off in Hall H at 1 PM today. Update, 2:45 PM: Angelina did indeed appear at the panel, rocking a black leather jacket and discussing her action-packed performance.

Not in attendance at Comic-Con, however, was Angelina’s partner, Brad Pitt — the “Megamind” star was absent at the DreamWorks Animation film’s panel on Thursday, replaced next to co-stars Tina Fey, Will Ferrell and Jonah Hill with a cardboard cut-out of himself.

“Unfortunately, since Angelina’s here, Brad had to watch the kids,” director Tom McGrath joked.

“Salt” is due in theaters on Friday. Keep an eye on all week for the latest details from the convention floor!
