This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny f*ckin' Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of Casting Tidbits this side of the nuthouse. First up, the sizable ensemble cast of Ten Year has just grown even more as Risky Biz reports Rosario Dawson (Unstoppable) and Lynn Collins (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) will star alongside other stars like Chris Pine, Justin Long and Anna Faris in a story which follows a group of friends attending a ten year high school reunion.
Second, Variety reports Sienna Miller (G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) and Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) will star in Two Jacks, and indie drama from Bernard Rose which is actually based on the story story The Two Hussars by Leo Tolstoy. The story follows two different generations of a family starting in 1992, when a legendary filmmaker returns to Hollywood after a lengthy absence to get financing for a new movie. He's a boozer, a womanizer and wins the money he needs from poker games. Flash forward 20 years later and the filmmaker's son (played by Jack Huston ("Boardwalk Empire") comes to town to make his directorial debut amid curiosity as to whether he's inherited his father's gifts.
Next, Variety reports Dennis Quaid (The Special Relationship) will star in the indie thriller Beneath the Darkenss, a story following a teen (Tony Oller) who struggles to expose the grim secrets of the house owned by Quaid's character, a respected local hero. The film is already shooting in Texas with Martin Guigui directing from a script by Bruce Wilkinson. The cast also includes Aimee Teegarden, Tony Oller, Devon Werkheiser, Brett Cullen and Stephen Lunsford.
Finally, Heat Vision reports Teri Polo (Meet the Parents) and Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friend's Wedding) have joined Beyond, a thriller which follows a veteran detective and a questionable television psychic who will stop at nothing to find a missing child. Jon Voight also stars in the film which is under the direction of The 13th Floor helmer Joseph Rusnak. The small budget film is already in production in Alaska.
Well, that's all for this edition of Casting Tidbits. Be sure to stay tuned for more casting updates on the way.
