It’s just too many celebs and too many stories to figure out what’s what, but the first trailer for the new Garry Marshall ensemble film, New Year’s Eve, is out.
Abigail Breslin, Zac Efron and Lea Michele costar with Jessica Biel, Robert DeNiro, Ashton Kutcher, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katherine Heigl, Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry, Sofia Vergara, Josh Duhamel… I could go on and on.
It’s a sort of sequel (re: money maker) to last year’s Valentine’s Day.

Following the modest success of the first movie, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightening Thief, the sequel is finally moving forward with Logan Lerman set to reprise his role as the title hero.
The 19 year-old actor has had his option picked up by the studio (he is contracted for three Percy films with Fox 2000) and will have a new director for this film. Thor Freudenthal who helmed Diary of a Wimpy Kid takes over from Chris Columbus and new writers have been brought on board for the script for Percy Jackson & The Sea of Monsters, the second book in the series by Rick Riordan.
Lerman is currently finishing work on The Perks of Being A Wallflower with Emma Watson and Nina Dobrev in Pennsylvania and has The Three Musketeers coming out in October.

Lining up another role in yet another crazy popular teen book series, Jamie Campbell Bower takes on the next big thing: The Mortal Instruments.
Bower, who is Caius in the Twilight series and Grindelwald in the final two Harry Potter movies, now owns the role of Shadowhunter Jace Wyland in the film based on the Cassandra Clare novels.
The 22 year-old will star opposite Lily Collins, who was cast months ago as Clary Fray.
While the fan favorite, Alex Pettyfer, apparently turned the role down, Bowers casting is causing lots of upset among fans.
Remember no one liked Robert Pattinson for Edward Cullen or Jennifer Lawrence for Katniss Everdeen either. That alone puts Jamie in good company.

“Sucker Punch” star Vanessa Hudgens is currently in negotiations to play a pregnant homeless teen in a new indie drama called “Gimme Shelter” also starring Brendan Fraser. The 22 year-old actress sees this as THE opportunity to get rid of her High School Musical image.
The role of the pregnant teen, who escapes an abusive mother and is rejected by her own father, is purely dramatic. When the teen refuses to abort, her father throws her out. Vanessa is left on the streets homeless and expecting her first child.
Brendan Fraser is expected to play the role of her insensitive father in the movie directed by Ron Krauss.

Logan Lerman is grabbing another movie lead.
The 19 year-old has signed on to star in The Only Living Boy in New York, directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses.)
The movie is described as “a twisted coming-of-age tale in which a young man (Lerman) learns that his overbearing father is having an affair. The son tries to stop it, only to become involved with the woman as well.”
Lerman will start filming this shortly after he finishes The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which just added The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev to the cast with Emma Watson and Mae Whitman already on board.
The Percy Jackson star is also in the summer release The Three Musketeers and said this film adaptation is “badass.”
“It’s much more badass,” he said. “We definitely wanted to up the action, and give it a cooler spin. A well deserved cooler spin. This is nothing that anyone’s going to expect when thinking about the long line of D’Artagnans, and how much older they were than the character is.”
