Evan Rachel Wood
On again. Off again. Well, now "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" is definitively on again.

Since Shia LaBeouf returned to his starring role in the film (after briefly being replaced by Zac Efron), it seems two more leads have been filled. Evan Rachel Wood and Mads Mikkelsen (a Danish star) have signed on for the thriller.

Penned by Matt Drake, the scribe behind the upcoming "Project X," the story follows Charlie, who, after the death of his mother, heads to Europe to find himself. (Sounds reasonable to us.) On the plane, however, he meets Hungarian beauty Gabi Banyai (Wood) — an...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Salt,' 'Valhalla Rising,' & More

July 19th, 2010 10:20am EDT
Salt
I saw both the “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and “Inception,” which premiered last week.

If you’re interested in reading my thoughts on each, check out my reviews here.

Angelina Jolie’s action thriller “Salt” arrives in theaters this week, as well as the dark age adventure “Valhalla Rising,” the dramedy “Life During Wartime,” the family film “Ramona and Beezus,” and the documentary “Countdown to Zero.”
