The Cast of State of Play Got Even More Amazing

Just last week I told you that Edward Norton and Brad Pitt were reuniting for another film, this one based on the British miniseries State of Play. Well, the cast just got even bigger, with more good-looking, supremely talented people. In addition to Norton and Pitt, Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Helen Mirren and Robin Wright Penn will join the cast. Variety has more:

McAdams will play a reporter in the middle of a career-making story, as her newspaper investigates the death of the mistress of a fast-rising congressman. Mirren will play the steely newspaper editor. (Bill Nighy played the editor in the mini.) Wright Penn will play the estranged wife of the congressman. She becomes romantically involved with the pol's former campaign manager (Pitt), who leads the newspaper's investigative team. Norton plays the congressman and Bateman plays the other lead reporter.

That's some hefty casting news. This project had me at "Pitt and Norton" but now I'm even more excited for State of Play. What do you think? For those of you familiar with the miniseries, how do you think this film will measure up?

I love the miniseries. All the actors were AMAZING, and they were picked for talent, not because they could bring people to watch the show. Watch the miniseries. I wouldn't bother with this one.

I haven't seen the original series, but Brad Pitt and Ed Norton together in a movie again? Be still, my heart.

The original series was fabulous, and the cast were spot on, so needless to say I'm pretty sceptical about how the movie will match up. I do think Helen Mirren could be fantastic in Bill Nighy's shoes though, so I'll definitely watch the film, if only to complain about how much better the original was!
