Isla to voice the Tooth Fairy in animated “Rise of the Guardians”

January 28th 2011 • by Jess • 1 Comment »"Rise Of The Guardians", Rumoured Roles

Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman, Jude Law, Alec Baldwin and Isla Fisher will voice the lead roles in DreamWorks Animation’s 3D epic “Rise of the Guardians.”

Peter Ramsey is directing the pic based on “The Guardians of Childhood,” an upcoming series of children’s books by William Joyce, who will co-direct.

Guillermo del Toro and Michael Siegel are exec producing, while Christina Steinberg and Nancy Bernstein will serve as producers.

Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire wrote the screenplay, which follows a group of heroic childhood legends, each with extraordinary abilities. When Pitch (Law), an evil spirit akin to the boogeyman, lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world.

Project was originally announced in December 2009, with Leonardo DiCaprio voicing Jack Frost, a role Pine will be taking over. He’ll be joined by Jackman’s Bunnymund (the Easter Bunny), Baldwin’s North (Santa Claus) and Fisher’s Tooth (the Tooth Fairy).

“It’s a thrill to be working with such an all-star team of actors and filmmakers,” Bill Damaschke, DWA’s chief creative officer, said in a statement to Variety. “When we bring Bill Joyce’s imaginative vision to the screen in 2012, audiences will experience an incredible story with a truly epic sense of adventure.”

DWA will release the film on Nov. 21, 2012.

“Rango” given MPAA rating of PG

January 21st 2011 • by Jess • No Comments"Rango"

The Motion Picture Association of America’s Classification and Ratings Administration dished out ratings for Rango and Something Borrowed in their weekly bulletin this afternoon.

Rango was rated PG for “rude humor, language, action and smoking.” While a PG is a somewhat rare rating for an animated movie, it’s not altogether surprising for Rango given its western setting. Directed by Gore Verbinski and featuring the vocal talents of Johnny Depp, Rango opens March 4 opposite Beastly, The Adjustment Bureau and Take Me Home Tonight.

New parents go for star quality

December 23rd 2010 • by Jess • No CommentsPersonal

They have both been gracing the big screen this year, and it seems stars Daniel Radcliffe and Isla Fisher might also have been influencing the parents of Edinburgh.

Daniel and Isla have topped the chart of most popular baby names in the Capital, after a year in which Radcliffe returned to our screens as Harry Potter and Fisher featured as Ginny in Burke and Hare.

Daniel has shot up the chart from fifth place last year, knocking Jack from the top spot, while for Isla it is the second year at the top of the chart.

Also popular for boys in Edinburgh this year were Alexander and James, with Sophie and Olivia second and third for girls.

However, Daniel didn’t even appear in the charts for West Lothian or Midlothian, with Jack the favourite in both areas.

In East Lothian, Oliver was top of the list, followed by Daniel, then Lewis. Emily was the most popular girl’s name, with Isla second and Ava third.
