The Call Sheet sifts through the day's glut of Hollywood news to find the stories even non-industry types care about. Today: Jennifer Lawrence might have a scheduling conflict, Scott Wolf is back on TV, and Keira Knightley makes a terrible decision.
There's a question in the air as to whether Jennifer Lawrence, soon to come arrow-shootin' onto the screen as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, might have a big scheduling conflict coming up. Lionsgate wants to start production on the film's sequel, Catching Fire, this summer, but Lawrence is also locked into appearing in Fox's X-Men: First Class sequel (Second Class?) as Mystique. Fox has dibs on Lawrence as they snapped her up first, but obviously Katniss is the starring role so, creatively at least, that ought to take precedence -- so this could be a problem! Or, well, it could not be. One of Lawrence's people says that the studios are "making accommodations" for the actress and that everything should work out fine. Making accommodations would behoove both studios, as Lawrence is getting to be quite famous and having her in either movie is a boon. This is indeed a pretty A-list problem for an actress to have, so really it's hardly a problem at all. Though, if one studio does decide to get devious and meddle with the other production, we know now that all they'd have to do to get the other production out of the picture is off a few horses. But that'd be, like, evil. And Hollywood isn't evil! [The Hollywood Reporter]
Aw, someone's gone and given Scott Wolf some work. The White Squall actor has been cast in The CW's Joey Dakota pilot, which is a "romantic-time-travel-musical" (o_O) about Greek's Amber Stevens traveling back in time to do a documentary about a popular singer who died in the '90s and falling in love with that singer and then, back in the present, trying to travel back in time again to prevent his death. Hm. OK. We say again: o_O. Wolf will be playing "Franklin, who seems to know a lot about Maya’s situation, may have been dabbling with time travel himself, and could be the key to Maya’s returning to the past and the man she loves." So he's a spirit guide. Homer had a coyote on The Simpsons, and Ashleigh from Greek gets a Wolf. Makes sense to us! [Deadline]
