Dominic Cooper has got a need... a need to be in the "Need for Speed" movie.
He's the latest actor to consider joining the upcoming video game adaptation that is going to be based on EA's popular game franchise. Variety has the news, reporting that the "Captain America: The First Avenger" star is in talks for a role in the movie.
He'll be joining Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots in the film, which we're guessing is going to feel like something out of the "Fast and the Furious" series. Though it's not going to be based on one game in particular, it's been reported that "Need for Speed" is going to stay very true to the franchise that it's based on.
For those of you who may have lost track of the recent "Star Wars: Episode VII" development, this is pretty much where things stand:
Lucas has met with writers, but won't hire a director himself. Hamill knew about it last year and said he was game in 1983. Ford, amazingly, said he was open to returning, which made one of our writer think this might happen.
Now a missing piece has fallen into place. Carrie Fisher, who supposedly also met with Lucas and Hamill last supper, told TMZ that she's up for another go as Leia, presumably not in the slave getup. "Yes, sure," Fisher replied when asked about returning." "Wouldn't you?" Yes, Carrie Fisher, we absolutely would.

The rate of growth of "Star Wars: Episode 7" talk is escalating. In less than a week, we've moved from wild speculation to what is now being reported as the first major rumor as to who will direct the first installment of a new trilogy.
Steve Weintraub over at Collider just published a story based on tips that he received from his sources, who claim to have inside knowledge of an ongoing deal. According to them, ex-"Thor," -"X-Men: First Class," and -"X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Matthew Vaughn is now in talks with Disney and Lucasfilm to helm at least the first installment of a new "Star Wars" trilogy.
As this is the first widespread rumor citing a specific director, one clearly labeled as such, and one that isn't backed up with secondary sources, we would normally, instantaneously and mercilessly roll our eyes at it, but Collider's story is getting play on most of the major movie blogs for a couple of reasons.
It's become increasingly clear that "The Expendables" is the movie franchise that Sylvester Stallone wants to focus all of his attention on, and we're totally okay with that. That's why it didn't come as much of a surprise when Stallone set the record straight about the status of the upcoming "The Expendables 3" to El Pais. According to him, all systems are a go.
"We are preparing the film with the same passion and commitment as the previous two. We have confirmed Nicolas Cage, a master actor who gives a veneer intellectual group," he said. "Hopefully we can realize to Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke. That is the great mission of the producer."
It's been more than six months since "The Muppets 2" was officially announced, and details have slowly trickled in about the project ever since. We've known that James Bobin and Nicholas Stoller have been working on a script and that Jason Segel won't be involved, but we don't know much more beyond the fact that Christoph Waltz will be playing an Interpol agent in the film.
We still might not know much about the plot "The Muppets 2," but thanks to Collider we have a better idea of what the film movie consist of. The outlet had the opportunity to speak with "The Muppets" producer Todd Lieberman recently and got a few status updates on the project.
We still have a week until "Skyfall" opens on US shores, but the newest Bond film is already breaking records overseas.
The Sam Mendes-directed flick has managed to overtake the opening week record in the UK that was previously set by "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2." That film made $57.6 million in the seven days after its debut, while "Skyfall" has managed to rake in $59.9 million.
The fact that "Skyfall" has managed to trump Britain's other beloved film franchise should be proof that this movie is as great as we've been hearing it is. "Skyfall" currently has a 95 percent positive score on Rotten Tomatoes, and critics have said it's one of the best of the 007 series.
It's here! It's here! It's finally here! The final movie of "The Twilight Saga" is almost upon us, and as the world's biggest fans of the series, this was the only note the relationship between MTV and "Twilight" could end on.
Stick right here for an exclusive, never-before-seen clip from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" and a 30-minute interview with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner.
Plus, if you're good, there may just be an extra special guest or two dropping by to say "hello."

If you've been bummed about the fact that "Transformers: The Ride 3D" was too far away for you to visit, then we've got some exciting news for you. Universal Orlando has just announced that it will be the third theme park worldwide to bring Optimus Prime's latest adventure to parkgoers.
"Transformers: The Ride 3D" opened at Universal Hollywood over the summer to a very positive response, following in the footsteps of Universal Singapore's launch of the ride on December 3, 2011. The success both parks had with the theme park attraction convinced Universal Creative president Mark Woodbury that it would fit in well at Orlando as well.
"Not only has it proven to be wildly popular as an attraction in Singapore and Hollywood, but this is a blockbuster franchise with three big movies, each one of them a major success at the box office, and another film in the making, so this is one of those epic franchises that not only makes for a great ride experience but has the legs to live on as a classic," he told MTV News in a phone interview. "People really dig this ride."
