Well, it was only a matter of time.
Having played a younger Charles Xavier for four years now, it was always a question on when James McAvoy would don the bald head of the Professor. That day looks to be today in preparation for X-Men: Apocalypse.
Over at director Bryan Singer's instagram and with the simple caption of "Xavier reborn in process", we see McAvoy being sheared and shaved bald for the first time.
And the award for Weirdest News of the Day goes to Colossal, a giant monster movie to be directed by Nacho Vigalondo (best known for helming Timecrimes and karaoking with Elijah Wood and the RZA). Anne Hathaway has just been cast in the film as Gloria, “an ordinary woman who, after losing her job and her fiancÚ, decides to leave her life in New York to move back to her hometown,” only to find that she shares a psychic link with — I shit you not — a kaiju destroying Tokyo. Vigalondo remarks, “Colossal is my most ambitious script so far, and probably also the most personal one. Having Anne and this terrific team around goes beyond my craziest expectations.” And ours, Nacho. And ours.

Julia Stiles Back For More Bourne
Nicky Parsons will return
Talk about timing! Mere days after Empire talked to Julia Stiles about her latest film and discussed the chances of her returning to the Bourne franchise now that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are aboard, news arrives that she will indeed be back as Nicky Parsons.
The nervy Nicky has been a presence in the three Jason Bourne-centric films, and becomes the first character beyond Damon’s to be confirmed for the latest, as-yet-untitled movie. Alicia Vikander is reportedly being sought to join them, but she hasn’t made any sort of deal just yet.
As for what the formerly amnesiac superspy will be up against this time? Nothing has been revealed yet, though we do know that Greengrass is at work on the script with Christopher Rouse and Frank Marshall will be back in the producer’s chair. The new Bourne, whatever it may end up being called, is set for release on July 29, 2016.
Stiles has supernatural thriller Out Of The Dark on DVD now and will be seen in The Great Gilly Hopkins, Go With Me, Border Crossing and Beyond Deceit.
