Get Him to the Greek Casting Untrue

The news that Emily has starred in the film, Get Him to the Greek, is untrue. Entertainment Weekly confirms that it was just a rumor. This is disappointing, but I am sure Emily will sign on to other, even better projects!

The Devil Wears Prada actress Emily Blunt has not signed on to appear alongside Russell Brand in the Forgetting Sarah Marshall sequel/spin-off movie Get Him to the Greek. Brand was reported to have told an Australian radio station that Blunt would star with him in the film and the story has been widely repeated on the Internet. But Blunt’s U.K. publicist told EW earlier today it was “untrue” that the actress had been cast in the Marshall sequel.

New Movie: Shoot the Messenger

According to JoBlo.com, Emily will star alongside Anthony Hopkins in Shoot the Messenger.

Dangerously hot British thesp Emily Blunt has, along with Anthony Hopkins, joined the cast of […] writer Ted Griffin’s upcoming directorial effort SHOOT THE MESSENGER. The story is based on Irvin Yalom’s novel “Lying on the Couch.”

Among those doing the lying are Carolyn, who hopes to ruin the career of psychotherapist Ernest Lash because she believes his advice led her husband to seek a divorce. Then there is the gambler whose plan is to lure another psychotherapist into malpractice so he can sue and pay off his debts. In Yalom’s world, it’s sometimes hard to tell who needs advice and counseling more–the patient lying on the couch or therapist sitting nearby.
