Kenneth Branagh is hammering away on ‘Thor’ — and those nasty rumors

It’s no surprise to learn that back in Ireland, young Kenneth Branagh — who would grow up to direct film adaptations of “Hamlet,” “Much Ado About Nothing” and “Henry V” — fell under the spell of tales about royal family intrigue, ancient rivalry and clanging battlefields. What is unexpected, though, is that epic of obsession was by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, not William Shakespeare.

“Growing up, my single comic book passion was Thor,” says the 49-year-old actor and filmmaker who surprised many industry observers by taking on the director’s job on the big-budget adaptation of the Marvel Comics thunder god. “From my time in Belfast as a kid, that’s the first time I came across that comic, really, exclusively, I don’t know why, but it struck a chord. I was drawn to it. I liked all the dynastic drama.”

Roadside Attractions Gets Their Hands on some ‘Cash’

There hasn’t been much build up in the movie news and blog world regarding the upcoming release of the action/thriller Cash, which is being directed by Stephen Milburn Anderson (South Central). It’s really a shame though, because it stars one of the hot young up-and-coming Hollywood actors, Chris Hemsworth (Red Dawn, Thor) and the solid veteran actor Sean Bean (Flightplan, Lord of the Rings).

After having a good showing and building up a decent amount of steam at last year’s American Film Market, the film Cash has been floating around, working on a distribution deal. The news now is that Three Good Men, the studio behind Cash, has struck a deal with Roadside Attractions for a theatrical release on March 26th, 2010 and Lionsgate will handle the DVD release. That’s good news for fans of both Bean and Hemsworth.

Roadside Attractions is known for bringing mostly independent films to a wider audience and they usually don’t invest their time, effort and money unless the film has promise, which can only mean good things for audiences eagerly awaiting Cash. Roadside is responsible to bringing us films like Super Size Me, Fido (which has our very own Vic Holtreman quoted on the DVD cover), Amazing Grace, The Cove and most recently they picked up Winter’s Bone from Sundance. A blockbuster line up? No, but it is a solid offering and each film mentioned has gained critical acclaim in its individual genre.
