    Arguably the must see movie of 2004 (Kill Bill Vol. 2 is still the must-see for mosts), The Aviator boasts a star-studded cast and crew. Martin Scorsese (GoodFellas, Gangs of New York) is directing, and Leonardo DiCaprio, Jude Law, Alec Baldwin and John C. Reliy star. But that's not what's interesting. The roles of Jean Harlow, Ava Gardner, Katharine Hepburn and Lena Horn (which all actresses fought over including Oscar winners Nicole and Renee and Gwyneth and Halle) are given already. Gwen Stefani will make her big-screen debut as Jean, Cate will play Katherine, Kate (Beckinsale) will play Ava and Josie Maran might play Lena Horne.

    I've seen photos of Gwen Stefani as Jean. She looks amazing, but i hope she can act.

    Do you know that in 2001 Jim Carrey was meant to play Howard Hughes? He talked about it on Larry King during the promotion for "The Majestic" but somehow it didn't happen..

    I'm quite positive filming has started/finished. I've seen pictures of Leonardo DiCaprio and Cate Blanchett shooting some of their scenes together. That's why I think Cate is perfect - seeing her in costume, she really resembles Katherine. :heart:

    As for Gwen, she definately looks the part - heres hoping she has the acting ability to back it up... I'm quite sure she does though, she's always been an awesome performer! :kiss:

    According to imdb.com filming is already finished and they're in the post-production now. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0338751/

    And according to movieweb:
    "Infernal Affairs: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leonardo DiCaprio might reteam with Martin Scorsese, his director onGangs of New York and the upcoming release The Aviator.

    Sources said DiCaprio is in talks to star in Infernal Affairs for Warner Bros. Pictures.

    Based on a trilogy of Chinese-language gangster movies, "Infernal" is being produced by Scorsese as well as Brad Grey, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt's Plan B shingle. Sources said Pitt most likely will star in the picture as well.

    Stay tuned for more on this project... "

    Not to be contorversial but how does one pick a white woman to play a black woman? Josie Maran as Lena Horne is just ridiculous...One would never get say Halle Berry to play Marilyn Monroe ...whatever

    They had an editorial on the movie in last month's Bazaar, I think. :flower:
    Although I don't think that Cate Blanchett really resembles Katherine Hepburn, they are both very talented, strong actresses and I am sure that Ms. Blanchett will do an admirable job. I can't wait for the movie to come out! B)

    Well if not Ms. Jackson then tap into an unknown talent there are enough Big stars to perhaps add in one of less noteriety.

    Gwen is only in the movie for about 10 min, its more of an extended cameo then any thing so i would be surprised if they actually would get a bigger actress for such a small part.

    She's the best there is right now. In my opinion, of course. :flower:

    Hummmm... Star studded cast but the question is are the few ''new actors'' able to act. Gwen Stefani does well as a singer and Josie Maran as a model, I'll have to wait and see the movie before judging on their acting talent. I just hope Gwen doesn't end up like Jennifer Lopez (an untalented lady who's trying to do as many jobs as she can - and ends up being bad at almost everything - sorry :D )........
