 Director Bryan Singer’s next project will be Valkyrie, a fact-based World War II thriller starring Tom Cruise. Now comes word that a highly talented quintet of actors are being pursued to star opposite Cruise in the film.According to LatinoReview.com, Bill Nighy (Davy Jones in the Pirates of the Caribbean films), Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins), Kenneth Branagh (Wild Wild West, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein), Stephen Fry (V for Vendetta) and Patrick Wilson (Phantom of the Opera, Hard Candy) are “in discussions” to join the cast.Valkyrie recounts the true story of German officer Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg, the ringleader of the failed “July Plot” that attempted to kill Adolf Hitler. The script was penned by Nathan Alexander and Oscar winner Christopher McQuarrie, who also scripted Singer’s breakthrough film, The Usual Suspects.With the exception of Wilson, all of the rumored additions to the cast have appeared in Nazi-themed or WW2 films. Branagh starred as Nazi officer Reinhard Heydrich in HBO’s Conspiracy. Fry appears in the forthcoming film Eichmann, about Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. Wilkinson co-starred in the Holocaust TV movie The Attic: The Hiding of Anne Frank, while Nighy was in the telepic Hitler’s S.S.: Portrait in Evil.Cruise’s own United Artists label will release Valkyrie, which begins filming this summer. Singer is expected to segue to the Superman Returns sequel afterwards.{nl}Source: IGN

Hollywood’s leading ladies may be better at grabbing glossy ink, but when it comes to earning top dollar, the men still have them beat.{nl}Fair or not, men are bigger earners both in front of and behind the camera. In fact, the male entertainers, excluding athletes, on Forbes’ annual listing of the World’s Most Powerful Celebrities earned on average nearly twice as much as the list’s women. Moreover, the 25 top-earning men on the list alone raked in $1.9 billion collectively over the course of a year, compared with their counterparts’ $671 million.{nl}Among the advantages of the actor over the actress: career longevity.{nl}”Men playing romantic leads into their 60s are not at all uncommon,” says Robert Thompson , the founding director of the Center of Television and Popular Culture at Syracuse University. “That’s not so much the case with women. Every now and again, a juicy Meryl Streep role will come along, but the good roles have tended to include a much smaller age span for women than they do for men.”{nl}And while Thompson believes that’s beginning to change, as evidenced by Diane Keaton’s recent roles in Something’s Gotta Give and Because I Said So, he doesn’t see it happening too quickly.{nl}James Ulmer, author and creator of the Ulmer Scale, which measures stars’ bankability, chalks it up to simple economics. “The demand for women in star-driven tent-pole movies isn’t there,” he explains. “And even though women are a growing force at the [box office], studios still feel more comfortable making these huge action adventures geared toward international male audiences.”{nl}That explains why Tom Cruise, raked in $67 million over the course of the year. Or why Denzel Washington, who boasts a laundry list of action-packed flicks, earned $38 million. By comparison, Jodie Foster, the top-earning actress on the list, garnered only $27 million during that same time period. {nl}One thing the experts do agree on: The discrepancy is no different, and perhaps even greater, for those in director positions. In fact, there were no women among the six directors in our admittedly small sample of best-paid celebrities. And when Martha Lauzen, a professor of communication at San Diego State University, looked at the 250 top-grossing films of 2006, she found that only 7% had women in director positions.{nl}”We’ve got all of these superstar directors–the Scorseses and the Tarantinos,” says Thompson. “There is a certain … I don’t want to say machismo, but let’s face it, directing has kind of got that.” {nl}Also falling into the category of the high-profile and the high-paid is Steven Spielberg, who pulled down $332 million in the span of a year. And with many major projects to come, big money will continue to flow his way. Among the director’s upcoming ventures: the much-buzzed-about Transformers flick and the fourth installments of the Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park franchises. Add to that On the Lot, a reality TV project to find the next big filmmaker, with Survivor’s Mark Burnett on News Corp.’s Fox.{nl}Then there’s George Lucas, who earned a hefty $235 million over the course of a year, thanks in part to residuals from his beloved Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises. The director’s wallet is expected to grow still thicker when Indiana Jones’ fourth installment, which he co-wrote and executive produced, hits theaters next year.{nl}”I wish there was a happier story to tell,” adds Lauzen. “And I think we don’t hear a lot about it because it isn’t a happy story.”{nl}To determine which entertainers made the most money over the course of a year, we turned to the 2006 edition of the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, which ranks the most powerful actors, authors and directors based on their media exposure (magazine covers and TV and radio mentions), Web presence (number of Google hits) and earnings.{nl}Source: Forbes

Continuing its ramp-up, United Artists has tapped veteran production exec Don Granger as prexy of production. {nl}Granger’s resume includes supervising 35 films at Paramount, including pics in the “Mission: Impossible,” “Star Trek” and “Tomb Raider” franchises, and later serving as production head at Cruise/Wagner Prods. He’ll report to studio chief Paula Wagner. {nl}Granger’s already been working at the revived UA, overseeing production of the first two films — “Lions for Lambs,” directed by Robert Redford and starring Redford, Meryl Streep and Tom Cruise, and “Valkyrie,” with Bryan Singer to direct and Cruise to star. {nl}He told Daily Variety that UA’s beefing up its production and development ranks in the near future.

Granger broke into showbiz in 1987 at Weintraub Entertainment Group, then joined Touchstone the following year and began a 12-year stint at Paramount in 1990, rising to exec VP of production and overseeing “Patriot Games,” “Clear and Present Danger,” “Varsity Blues,” “Kiss the Girls,” “Along Came a Spider” and “Saving Private Ryan,” among other pics. {nl}In 2001, Granger partnered with Gary Levinsohn to create Mutual Film Co., where he exec produced “Timeline” and “Snakes on a Plane.” He joined Cruise/Wagner as a senior exec in charge of development and production in 2004 and oversaw “War of the Worlds,” “Mission Impossible III,” “Elizabethtown” and upcoming pic “The Eye.” {nl}Granger also served as producer with Cruise/Wagner on “Ask the Dust.” {nl}”Tom and I have a long history with Don Granger, and we’ve always valued his great filmmaker relationships, his terrific taste in material and the tremendous intelligence he brings to development and production,” Wagner said. “He’s been an integral part of our team for many years now, and we are delighted that our association is continuing at UA.” {nl}Source: Variety
