U2

Director George Clooney

What is Casting Couch? Proof that not everyone’s tracking Hurricane Sandy’s path on Twitter. Some are still out there casting movies. The big casting news over the weekend was all of the big names that were announced for George Clooney’s next project as a director, The Monuments Men. Deadline had the scoop that this period drama about a group of art historians and museum curators trying to recover important and historical works from the clutches of the Nazis is going to star names like Bill Murray, Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville, and Bob Balaban. As far as I know none of these people can even speak German, but you’ve still got to look at that list and be impressed. You could cast this crew as an office full of telemarketers and everyone would still watch the movie, making them heroes during the dying days of the Nazi regime is just icing on the cake.

It’s hard to know what to think of this trailer for Killing Bono – the first straightforward comedy from director Nick Hamm. While the director is better known for horror like The Hole and Godsend, this trailer makes his new film out to be a fluffy affair that uses winks and coy smiles to stay afloat. The story focuses on a band from Dublin that isn’t U2, coming up around the same time as U2. As you can guess, the fame and fortune only goes to one of them. That’s strong fodder for both comedy and drama, but Hamm and writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais seem to be taking a piss take here. On the plus side, both Ben Barnes and Robert Sheehan are sharp young talents who will hopefully wear name tags so we can tell them apart from the guy playing Bono. It all feels like the cinematic equivalent of The Monkees, and the cheesy mid-90s voice over doesn’t help. Check it out for yourself:
