Loch Ness Monster? Nope, Just a Giant Colin Firth Statue

Firthbot-1

Well, isn't this just lovely and normal.

If you're planning on stopping by London's Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park, be prepared for a casual, routine day of aquatic fun—a boat ride, feeding the ducks and getting some sun. Oh, and a mammoth, 12-foot statue of Colin Firth (à la Mr. Darcy in the 1995 BBC miniseries "Pride & Prejudice"). Yes, you heard us correctly: There is a monster made in the likeness of Colin Firth lurking in a British lake as we speak. Get More »

Colin Firth Is the Newest Member of Woody Allen's In-Crowd

UPDATED: It's true! Colin Firth will join Emma Stone to lead Woody Allen's "new, untitled comedy," according to a press release. The project will film in the south of France, making it Allen's second film in France, and his eighth in Europe.

Bon voyage, Colin!

----

EARLIER: Woody Allen is an interesting fellow. While most filmmakers come up with a grand idea and then find stars to play the parts, Allen seems to often do the opposite: He finds people and places that inspire him and then crafts the film around their strengths. Last week, we heard that Emma Stone was in talks to work with the bespectacled director, and now a male lead seems poised to join her, according to Deadline.

Let's all welcome Colin Firth to the Woody Club, shall we?

Bet you didn't see that one coming.

'Bridget Jones' Diary 3' Still Not a Go

Miramax Miramax

They've been talking about a third "Bridget Jones's Diary" movie forever and ever - okay, not really, although it does feel that way - but things are still just not coming together with it.

Colin Firth, who portrayed the hunky (and rather non-subtly named) Mark Darcy in the first two installments, has confirmed that "Bridget Jones's Baby" is still breach.

Video Q&A: Emily Blunt and Colin Firth Talk 'Arthur Newman' Antics

Colin Firth and Emily Blunt are two of the finest British actors to grace the big screen. So what happens when they come together to play two Americans taking on fake identities in "Arthur Newman"? A whole lot of random craziness, including carrying on sexual escapades in many a stranger's home ... not exactly the type of behavior you'd expect from an Academy Award winner or newlywed.

When NextMovie sat down with the pair, things got almost as fun as their antics in the film, which hits theaters this weekend. Firth opened up about where's the wildest place a couple could potentially get their groove on (while recording it, too) and Blunt squashed any rumors on her supposed love affair with Anne Hathaway.

Check out our video interview above with Firth and Blunt as they talk sex, lies and videotape ... and "Arthur Newman," of course.

'Arthur Newman' Trailer: Colin Firth and Emily Blunt Are Identity Thieves

Colin Firth is one of our favorite actors in the world, thanks to movies like "A Single Man," "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and his Oscar-winning turn in "The King's Speech." And Emily Blunt is one of our favorite actresses, wowing us in "The Devil Wears Prada," "The Young Victoria" and "Looper." So what happens when two great talents with a history of making amazing movies come together?

You get the new trailer for "Arthur Newman," courtesy of Vulture, that's what. And the trailer is... actually, it's kind of a hot mess. Get More »

Why Can't My New Year's Eve Be Like the Movies?

When Harry Met Sally MGM

Ah, New Year's Eve — a magical evening filled with champagne, kisses at the stroke of midnight and, of course, a fresh start to the year ahead. Too bad in real life it's so much more often filled with overpriced dinners, obnoxious drunks and broken resolutions. (Yes, we often do manage to break our resolutions before even crawling into bed.) In other words, New Year's Eve almost always blows … yet somehow in the movies it's so damn perfect. Get More »

Casting Roundup: Cusack, Seyfried and Ford Get the Gigs

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...

• John Cusack is a triple threat this week! In just the past few days he's scored roles in the legal drama "Due Process," the Stephen King adaptation "Cell" (Cusack's second King adventure, following "1408") and Roger Avary's "Duel"-type thriller, "Airspace."

• Hollywood loves it when a one-night stand leads to true love (and, often, a baby ... and not always in that order). Deadline reports that Amanda Seyfried and Patrick Dempsey will be playing unexpectedly expecting parents in "Wonderful Tonight," a romantic comedy that we hope gets a new title sooner rather than later (sorry, Mr. Clapton, but do you really need the extra money?).

"The King's Speech" chronicled George VI being crowned King of England after his older brother abdicated in order to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. With the help of an unorthodox therapist (Geoffrey Rush), the King overcame a severe speech impediment to lead his country against the Nazi threat. Get More »

Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon Tie the 'Devil's Knot'

The "Devil's Knot" has been blessed — with Colin Firth, that is. The thesp has officially signed on to star opposite Reese Witherspoon in the Atom Egoyan-directed drama about the West Memphis 3, based on Mara Leveritt's book, "Devil's Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three."

The story follows Ron Lax (Firth), a private investigator who was the first pro bono supporter of the accused as they headed to trial in 1993, offering his services free to the defendants who were reviled largely due to sensationalized reports about devil worship and ritualistic sacrifice attached to the crime.

According to Deadline, when Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley were convicted without any real physical evidence, Lax really went to work—ultimately discovering DNA in the knots that bound one of the victims that cast suspicion on Terry Hobbs, the step-father Steven Branch, of one of the 8-year old murdered boys. Heavy stuff. Get More »
