ava-sin-cityA few recent news and notes to get you caught up on recent castings of “major” Hollywood movies.

We have our new Johnny Quest and it’s… Zack Efron? Yeah, the High School Musical star has been cast along with Dwayne “Stop Calling Me The Rock” Johnson for the yet-to-be-titled film (umm…how about Johnny Quest?) based on the cartoon centered around the pre-teen adventurer and his family. Now that his character on House has offed himself can we look forward to Kal Penn as Hadji? Of course he’ll have to give up his new White House gig (seriously, how awesome is that?!). More here.

On the sequel front, Angelina Jolie may get a chance to play Ava in the long delayed Sin City 2 after all. That is, of course, the sequel ever gets made! More here.

And as for remakes, Elizabeth Shue (last seen in a funny role as herself in Hamlet 2), has signed on to star in a remake of Piranha. Piranha? Really? Are they going to get Heather Graham to do the sequel? More here.
