Sean Bean (Boromir) has joined the cast of ‘The Big Empty’ with Rachael Leigh Cook (Get Carter), Jon Favreau (Swingers, Made) and Kelsey Grammer (TV’s Fraiser). The official site touts the film as an ‘offbeat ensemble dark comedy’ (aren’t they all). Look for that later this year.

Marton Csokas (Celeborn), fresh from duking it out with Vin Diesel in ‘XXX” is set to join the cast of the action comedy ‘Kangaroo Jack’. Jerry O’Connell, Estella Warren and Christopher Walken also star.

Brad Dourif (Wormtounge) has added his talent to the film ‘El Padrino’, an action thriller from ‘The Calling’ director Damian Chapa. Look for that later this year or early next.

Both Hugo Weaving (Elrond) and David Wenham (Faramir) have joined the cast of the mini series ‘After the Deluge’. The Aussie film is directed by popular TV director Brendan Maher (“BeastMaster”, “Halifax f.p: Swimming with Sharks”, “Farscape”, “SeaChange”)
