Bio-Curious

Stepping away from the Comic-Con blitz for a moment with a few award buzz-worthy biopics on the horizon:

- If the awesome trailer wasn't enough, now word has it Cate Blanchett will doff her royal duds in Elizabeth: The Golden Age, the second in a planned Elizabeth trilogy.

- Benicio Del Toro looks hungry for another Oscar. Not only is he going the "real person" route in the role of Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara, but he is also re-teaming with his Traffic director Steve Soderbergh on the film, titled Guerrilla. To see how he compares to all those dorm wall posters, here are some onset pictures.

- And let us give all due praise to Anne Hathaway. Unlike a certain fellow Disney flick alumna, our girl Anne is gaining more and more fame for the right reasons. After her sparkling debut in The Princess Diaries movies, Hathaway turned in fine 'adult' performances in Brokeback Mountain and The Devil Wears Prada, endearing her to us for a lifetime. Now she takes on the role of a lifetime: Jane Austen in Becoming Jane.

Since Hollywood has already mined most of Austen's works, they have now turned to the life of the author herself for the next swooning big screen romance. Hathaway, looking resplendent in her period garb, was born for this part; and the presence of James McAvoy (not too mention Julie Walters and Maggie Smith) doesn't hurt either.

Becoming Jane opens in select cities this Friday, nationwide August 1o.
