  • Eddie Izzard confirms he will have a role in Ocean's Thirteen here.

  • On his official website here in 2004, Ocean's actor Don Cheadle discussed why he chose not to be credited in Ocean's Eleven. Were all the actors lured to the film under the same premise?

    The short version of the answer is at the time the credit sequence was being put together I believed that the cast list would appear in alphabetical order. While at a showing of another movie I saw the Ocean’s trailer running with the credit card that ultimately remained. I requested my name be removed from the film at that time given that I felt I had been cut out of the process. My former agent thought I was making a big mistake.

  • And confirmation that Franka Potente will not be appearing in The Bourne Ultimatum from the Birmingham Post. Yes people, she really did die in Supremacy.

    Sadly she won't be returning for the final part of the trilogy -The Bourne Ultimatum - as her character got a bullet in the head at the start The Bourne Supremacy.

    "I thought it was a little sad we didn't get to see more of the two of them together. I know Matt felt the same way because his character is so robotic that all the emotions that make a story warmer and more complex are to do with her and she is gone immediately. We felt it would have been more harsh for him if he lost her a little bit later."

  • More rumors about problems during the production of Syriana from Roger Friedman at Fox News.

    Of all the Section Eight films, "Syriana" was the most contentious. Sources have told me stories on numerous occasions of how director Stephen Gaghan — whom Soderbergh championed because he adapted the script for "Traffic" — had to be taken off the picture so Soderbergh could make massive fixes before it was released.

    Thank you - it's official, no Marie. Perhaps the folks wishing a miraculous healing will come to terms with it now. If Marie had somehow survived a bullet in the head then the Supremacy could never be taken seriously and I doubt Matt would allow himself to be attached to it. If anything, the Bourne films are about reality.

    I hope Izzard gets a bigger role in O-13 this time around. I also secretly hope that he's in heels. I do admire the man.

    About Time This Was Offical - No Marie, She did die in Supremacy.
    Her Character i did like - but when she got a bullet in her head and how ever long she was underwater, i did realise she want going to survive that. Then when i found out theres going to be a third Bourne film, i did realise the Marie character would not be returning. Because (Like ~Maureen~ said and also in my opinion) no 'miraculous healing' thing would work for the film like said the'Bourne films are about reality, if anything' and also if somehow Marie did survive, i agree i don't think it would of been taken seriously it would of been 'stupid' in a word.
    'and I doubt Matt would allow himself to be attached to it' most likely.

    Thanks for the pics - hes looks great! and thankyou for all the updates :)

    although i liked marie, i'm glad she's not back, it would have been ridiculous.

    thanks for the great pics!

    I'm glad Marie won't being granted any miracles, but I could have enjoyed her in a memory or dream squence like the one with Chris Cooper at the beginning of Supremecy. I agree with the comment that she was like the emotional core for Bourne, I think it would help a lot to have something like that in Ultimatum.
