Filming on "Spy Kids 4: Armageddon" is underway at Director Robert Rodriguez' Troublemaker Studios in Austin, TX, and Dimension Films has announced that the 3-D family-friendly action-adventure film will be released on August 19, 2011. The film was formerly known as "Spy Kids 4: All The Time In The World" and was renamed the current title.

Robert Rodriguez has directed all 3 of the previous Spy Kids films. Bob and Harvey Weinstein will produce for Dimension Films, which is a motion picture unit currently part of The Weinstein Company. Dimension was formerly used as Bob Weinstein's label within Miramax Films, to produce and release genre films. The Weinstein Brothers took this label with them when they departed the Disney-owned Miramax in 2005.

All films released by Dimension Films prior to October 1, 2005, remain the property of The Walt Disney Company. Disney also retains a license to use the Dimension label for distribution of the film library it controls. Disney continues to share half the proceeds from the Spy Kids films and any other future installments of pre-existing Dimension franchises.

The casting director for "Spy Kids 4: Armageddon" in Los Angeles is currently seeking a mid 30's to mid -40's man, any ethnicity to play the role of a genius scientist named Dr. Xavier. Will film the scenes the first week of November with Jessica Alba in Austin, TX.

James Cameron's 'Avatar 2' auditions and casting information

Academy Awardwinning Producer/Writer/Director James Cameron has officially announced on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 that his next two films will be Avatar 2 and Avatar 3. It was also announced that Avatar 2 is scheduled to be released in December 2014, and Avatar 3 is scheduled for a 2015 release.

Fox Filmed Entertainment chairmen Jim Gianopulos, Tom Rothman and James Cameron made the announcement on the two picture deal. Cameron stated, "I am looking forward to returning to Pandora, a world where our imaginations can run wild. It is a rare and remarkable opportunity when a filmmaker gets to build a fantasy world, and watch it grow, with the resources and partnership of a global media company."

James Cameron will shoot the movies starting in late 2011. He will decide whether to film the two sequels back to back after he wraps up the final drafts of the scripts. He also is teaming up with Jon Landau, a partner at Lightstorm Entertainment, to produce the film. Lightstorm partner Rae Sanchini negotiated the deal with Fox Filmed Entertainment on Lightstorm’s behalf.

The principal actor casting will in all likelihood be a very long process that will begin well ahead of the start of principal photography. The cast is expected to be very large with A-list stars down to completely unknown newcomers.

Casting Director information subject to change, please check back for updates.

Auditions will start in 2011. DO NOT SUBMIT PHOTOS AND RESUMES OR CONTACT THE CASTING OFFICES UNTIL IT IS POSTED HERE THAT THEY ARE ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS AND THE CASTING PROCESS HAS BEGUN.

Story:

Centers on the widespread corruption in the Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums (or CRASH) anti-gang unit of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Rampart Division in the late 1990s. Maverick LAPD cop Dave Brown (Harrelson), a Vietnam vet and a 30 year veteran of the Rampart division, uses his police powers like a Wild West gunslinger. But when the Rampart scandal erupts, he soon realizes that there's a new sheriff in town. When a videotaped beating puts him at the center of a media firestorm, he suspects that he has been targeted as a scapegoat. He must finally confront a lifetime of compromise, a deadly legacy with far-reaching implications for himself, his family, and his future.
