Marvel Studios has zeroed in on Hugo Weaving to play the villainous Red Skull in “Captain America.”
Joe Johnston is directing the movie, which remains in search of the actor to play Steve Rogers, Captain America’s alter ego.
In the Marvel comics, Red Skull has been Captain America’s archenemy since 1941, when he engaged in espionage and sabotage as Hitler’s right-hand man. In his final battle with the superhero, he was buried under the rubble of a bombed building but — as would occur later with Captain America — fell into a state of suspended animation. Both were revived in modern times.
The character was the villain in the low-budget 1990 “Captain America” movie.
The dealmaking with Weaving is in a delicate stage that will play out in the next day or so. Agencies grouse that Marvel plays hardball in the negotiating process and also demands multi-movie commitments, though the latter usually applies to actors playing its heroes.

The moody appeal of Robert Pattinson is given a better showcase in 'Remember Me,' thanks to his chemistry with co-star Emilie de Ravin. While the couple gives off an natural, romantic spark, it is squandered by a wildly melodramatic script with a jarring, uncomfortable twist.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 12, 2010 — The news came to the “Haynesville” production office in a deceptively simple and somewhat cryptic E-mail from Janet Pierson, SXSW’s film festival producer: “Congrats! You’re in! Call me.”
It was the deciphering of the message that was important. The documentary film “Haynesville: The Relentless Hunt for Energy Future” had been chosen to screen at the world-renowned SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Added to that, the film had earned a coveted “Spotlight Premiere” slot and would be shown at the historic Paramount Theater.
“I couldn’t believe it when Janet told me the news,” said Gregory Kallenberg, director of the film. “Showing at SXSW was our highest goal. After getting off of the phone, I actually had to sit down and process what had just happened.”
SXSW Film is globally known for being a top-tiered film festival and, along with Sundance, the best festival in the country for documentaries. This year, with less than 50 open slots, SXSW broke a record by receiving over 750 documentary films. Only 20 of the 50 films that were selected from all entries are Spotlight Premieres.
“It’s an amazing honor, and just the way we wanted to premiere the film,” says Kallenberg. “We feel like ‘Haynesville’ is an important film that needs to seen by the entire country, and we’re hoping that this prestigious showing helps position the film so that it can be seen by a wider audience.”
“Haynesville” plays on Tuesday, March 16 at 11am at the Paramount Theater. Tickets will be available at the box office prior to the screening for $10. SXSW badge holders can attend the screening as part of the conference. The film’s DVD will be released simultaneously with the premiere and be available through the film's website here.
