To close out the evening, I have two pieces of casting dealing with two great actors.

First up is Sam Rockwell who will reteam with his THE WAY WAY BACK producers Kevin Walsh, Nax Faxon and Jim Rash for THE EEL.

Faxon and Rash will not do writing or helming duties this time around. Instead, Roberto Bentivegna is directing his script that made the 2012 Black List. The story centers on, an escaped convict who is ensnared in a plot by a corrupt sheriff to kidnap the young heiress to an oil fortune, complicating his quest for freedom which definitely sounds like an ideal flick for Rockwell to star in. Shooting begins this Fall.

Though Faxon and Rash are only serving as producers, I urge you to check out THE WAY WAY BACK. Thank me later.

Now on to the next project for the legendary Harrison Ford.

The actor will join Blake Lively and Ellen Burstyn in AGE OF ADALINE. Lively plays the role of the 29-year old Adaline, who stops aging after recovering from a near-fatal accident. Over the course of the 20th century she embarks on an epic journey, keeping her secret until she meets a man who forever alters her life.

Details on Ford's role were not given.

CELESTE & JESSE FOREVERS Lee Toland Krieger serves as director on the film.

I think it's "Nat Faxon", but if there is a "Nax Faxon", I wanna listen to his music.

Age of Adaline sounds kinda Forrest Gump-esque or Benjamin Button-esque, and there's a bit of "Spirit of the 20th Century" from the Authority comic. Not confident in Blake Lively's abilities as a leading lady but Harrison's Ford in it so I'm there.

Harrison's Ford? Is that like his car or something?

Rockwell is one of my favorite actors and I will see anything with him in it. This new film is no exception. I don't know if it's a dark comedy or an actual drama. I'm sure he'll knock it out of the park, especially with his Way Way Back collaborators contributing.

And The Way Way Back is one of the best films of 2013. It made my top five for the year.
