Review: The Hustle

by Samantha Craggs

The late great Gene Siskel had a litmus test: is this movie more interesting than a documentary of the same actors having lunch?In the case of Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson inThe Hustle,the answer is a resounding no.The material keeps Hathaway at a fraction of her potential wattage,and Hollywood doesn't quite know what to do with Rebel Wilson yet.

The Hustle,in theatres now,is a remake ofDirty Rotten Scoundrels,although the earlier film isn't required viewing.Hathaway plays Josephine Chesterfield,a skilled con artist with a too-affected British accent who uses her natural charm and willowy figure to swindle men out of money in a little French Riviera town.A police sergeant works with her – for a price,of course.And Chesterfield can pay it.She's made millions doing this.

In comes Wilson's Penny Rust,playing what we've come to know as the Rebel Wilson role...

West Side Story Casting Pt 2: "When you're a Jet,you're a Jet all the way"

If you missed part 1,The Sharks,that's here.

With the casting of Steven Spielberg's remake ofWest Side Storycomplete,and planning to shoot this very summer,let's meet the Jets.We've done the research to familiarize you with the new cast which is thankfully extremely heavy with very talented dancers and singers so we hope Steven Spielberg has a heretofore unknown gift for filming big dance heavy musical numbers! Links go to their instagram pages if we could find them...

PRINCIPALS


Ansel Elgort(Tony)
The 25 year old movie star has been threatening to do a movie musical for awhile now (he was once attached to a Hans Christian Anderson biopic that seems to have been trapped in development hell) and is finally getting around to it withWest Side Story.Major credits include leading roles inThe Fault in Our Stars,Billionaire Boys Club,Baby Driver,and the forthcoming dramaThe Goldfinch.

"West Side Story"Casting Pt 1: Meet the Sharks

by Nathaniel R

David Alvarez will be taking on George Chakiris's Oscar winning role of "Bernardo"in the remake of WEST SIDE STORY

We'll have to take the West Side Story casting,which is now complete with filming to begin this summer,in two parts.It's aLOTto process.Though we are skeptical of the project given thatWest Side Story(1961) is so perfect despite its imperfections (you know how art works),but the material itself is so brilliant that perhaps we'll get two classics for the price of one?

With the casting complete,meet the Sharks...
There's a lot of Broadway talent (especially fromHamilton,On Your Feet,Carousel),some people from the Miami ballet world,and even some who've doneWest Side Storybefore in other forms.Links go to their instagram pages if we could find them...
