There are still posts up around the internet of who have been cast, or who they are looking at to cast in this movie. Take all news with a grain of salt unless officially released. At this time there is still no indication of who has been cast, who is being looked at to be cast, and where filming will be located. What do you think of the new? Are you more excited for the movie?
