Cinecast: ‘Magnificent Seven’ Rewrite, Keanu on ‘Bill & Ted’ Sequel

Brad Pitt on a '12 Years a Slave' poster in Italy+ After a Tumblr user in Italy questioned a 12 Years a Slave poster featuring Brad Pitt (whose role in the film - despite his producing credit - is minimal), Lionsgate released a statement claiming that the advertisements (another similar one featured Michael Fassbender, who is also a supporting actor) were unauthorized and not approved by the filmmakers.

+ Saving Mr. Banks director John Lee Hancock has been picked to rewrite the Magnificent Seven remake, which Tom Cruise was previously attached to work on. No word yet as to who is set to replace Cruise.

+ In doing promotional rounds for his latest film 47 Ronin, Keanu Reeves ruled out any participation from him in the upcoming Point Break remake.

+ Fortunately for Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure fans, Reeves did state that he's open to doing a third film, which would follow Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

+ Even though she doesn't appear in a single frame of Spike Lee's Her, Scarlett Johansson is rumored to be receiving an Oscar nomination for her supporting role in the quirky sci-fi romance film as the operating system Samantha - opposite Joaquin Phoenix. The Oscar nod would be historic, as the Academy has yet to recognize actors' voice work in the past.

+ The trailer for Jon Hamm's upcoming baseball drama, Million Dollar Arm, is out now - check it out!
