Cinecast: Emma Roberts Honors Julia, Wally Pfister Casts Johnny Depp

Zoe Saldana as Nina Simone+ Emma Roberts donned a blonde wig and mini skirt this Halloween, a nod to her famous aunt Julia's most iconic role from Pretty Woman.

+ Zoe Saldana was photographed on the set of her upcoming film Nina, a biopic of the famous jazz singer Nina Simone. Complete in a headwrap and beige shift dress, the actress also appears to be wearing makeup to darken her skin (many, including Simone's daughter, were upset that the light-colored actress Saldana was chosen to portray the dark-skinned legendary songstress).

+ Johnny Depp has been cast as the lead role in Inception cinematographer Wally Pfister's directorial debut, Transcendence, which will see him play a man who will be sucked into an evil computer he created.

+ Michael Fassbender will take on the lead role in the film adaptation of the popular video game Assasin's Creed, where he plays a time traveler who operates around significant historical events.

+ Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown is in line to play the romantic lead in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, supposedly beating out Mad Men/Community star Alison Brie and Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones.

+ Oscar-nominated Skyfall writer John Logan will write the next two Bond films, which are the first in the history of 007 where a story stretches more than one flick.
