Life of Pi
Tobey Maguire’s small but key role has been recast in Ang Lee’s almost finished adaptation of Yann Martel’s “Life of Pi”.

Maguire’s presence was jarring enough that Lee has reshot the scenes with a lesser known actor – in this case “Prometheus” and “Anonymous” thesp Rafe Spall. [Source: THR]

Max Minghella (“The Social Network,” “The Darkest Hour”) is in talks to join Alexandre Aja’s supernatural thriller adaptation of Joe Hill’s novel “Horns”. Minghella will play a public defender.

Daniel Radcliffe plays a 26-year-old man who wakes up after a big night out to find horns sprouting out of his head which grow bigger by the day. The reason ties back to the unsolved murder of his girlfriend. [Source: Variety]
