Neil Patrick Harris TV renewal and movie opening news

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: It’s a big week for Neil Patrick Harris who found out he will be playing the hilarious Barney Stinson on CBS’s ‘How I Met Your Mother’ for at least two more years.
Deadline Hollywood reports that the cast – NPH, Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, and Alyson Hannigan – are all set to return.
We all know that the supremely talented Neil, who is the father of baby twins with partner David Burtka, could have his pick of things to do in television, movies or stage if he wasn’t on the sitcom. He’s also hosted the Emmys and the Tonys – imagine what life he could have brought to this year’s dreadful Oscar ceremony!
Speaking of films, Neil got some good notices for the poorly-reviewed film ‘Beastly’ starring newcomer Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens. USA Today wrote that “the movie’s saving grace is Neil Patrick Harris as Will, Kyle’s wisecracking, blind tutor, who appears at Kyle’s house one day to school the self-centered guy on being decent, with a capital D.”
The film opened in third place over the weekend earning an estimated $10 million. It finished behind the animated flick ‘Rango’ featuring the voice of Johnny Depp and the new Matt Damon thriller ‘Adjustment Bureau.’

Emily Blunt hops into ‘Looper’

HollywoodNews.com: After taking a role in the upcoming sci-fi action film “The Adjustment Bureau,” Emily Blunt continues to crave the genre.
Per the Hollywood Reporter, the British actress is set to star opposite Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in “Looper,” a film that sounds a lot like “The Terminator.” Feature is being helmed by writer-director Rian Johnson. Blunt will play the mother of a boy who becomes an integral part of an assassin’s life.
The Hollywood Reporter describes the story as follows:
The complicated plot involves a killer (Gordon-Levitt) who works for the mob of the future. He, along with other so-called Loopers, dispose of people that are sent from the future. When he recognizes one victim as his future self (Willis), he hesitates, letting the man escape.
Now, in order to save his immediate future, the man needs to track down and kill his future self, while his future self is trying to find and kill a young boy who is the key to his survival in the future.

New Orleans, which continues to be the go-to place for Hollywood films (“Green Lantern” was recently shot there), will be home for “Looper.” Cameras roll during the first quarter of 2011.
Blunt’s next films include British comedy shoot-em up “Wild Target” and Fox’s 3D adventure laffer “Gulliver’s Travel” with Jack Black.

Matt Damon’s ‘The Adjustment Bureau’ moves to March 2011

HollywoodNews.com: Universal is moving the release date for the Matt Damon sci-fi thriller “The Adjustment Bureau” again.
Originally, the film based on a Philip K. Dick story was expected to roll out in July. Then the studio decided September 17 was prime. In fact, had “Adjustment” bowed then, it would have been a year since Damon’s last fall film “The Informant!”
The new date for “Adjustment”? March 4, 2011.
Vulture reports, “While this move takes the film out of contention for this year’s Oscars, perhaps it will provide box office dividends like those enjoyed this past February by the similarly bumped Shutter Island.”
While that might be true, the date marks a year after the time when Damon bowed “Green Zone” to disastrous results at the domestic box office; the $100 million film only made $35 million.
“Adjustment” was directed by George Nolfi and stars Emily Blunt, Terence Stamp and John Slattery.

Matt Damon may take trip to the ‘Zoo.’

Hollywoodnews.com: Matt Damon might be signing on to Cameron Crowe’s Fox film “We Bought a Zoo.”
“Zoo” is an adaptation of a memoir by Benjamin Mee.
Damon would play Mee, who invested his nest egg into a broken-down zoo, replete with 200 exotic animals facing extinction.
As Mee takes on his eclectic career of tending to wild animals, he must also care for his wife who is dying of brain cancer.
The Hollywood Reporter believes “Zoo” is a departure from Damon’s recent string of action films a la “The Adjustment Bureau” and “The Bourne Identity.”
Crowe has a sharp creative ability to fuse both comedic and dramatic elements in a film, as seen in “Jerry Maguire.”
Crowe rewrote the “Zoo” script, which was originally handled by Aline Brosh McKenna (“The Devil Wears Prada”).

Matt Damon’s “The Adjustment Bureau” moved to September

By Roger Friedman
Matt Damon’s next film, “The Adjustment Bureau,” just got moved from July to September. The reason given: Universal Pictures thought it would make a better fall film, with some possible award potential.
But I’ve heard the overriding reason is re-shoots. The semi sci-fi film, based on a 1954 short story by Philip K. Dick, needs adjustments before it can be unleashed on to the world.
