Thank God. When Craig dropped out, I had visions of actors like Eric Bana or Christian Bale getting the role. Mark Ruffalo is a great second choice.

3 succumb to 'Blindness' at Focus Int'l
Source: Hollywood Reporter

Gael Garcia Bernal, Danny Glover and Alice Braga are set to join Fernando Meirelles' apocalyptic drama "Blindness" for Focus Features International.

Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo already have joined the project, which is based on Jose Saramago's acclaimed novel that is set in motion when an epidemic of blindness sweeps through a contemporary city and pushes society to the brink of breakdown. Bernal will play the King of Ward 3, and Glover will narrate the story. Braga will portray the girl with the dark glasses.

Potboiler Prods., Rhombus Media, Bee Vine Pictures and Meirelles' shingle 02 Filmes are producing.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in early July in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Toronto.

Definitely excited.  I still think Ruffalo looks too young to play the character he's playing but he's got the chops to make it work.  This is destined to be a solid contender for the 2009 Xixax Awards (unless Malick makes another movie).

Meirelles, Gosling in Talks for Next Jack Ryan Pic
Source: ComingSoon

Moviehole this morning reported that Fernando Meirelles, director of such acclaimed films as City of Men, The Constant Gardener and City of God, is the frontrunner to helm By Any Means Necessary, which may star Ryan Goslin (Lars and the Real Girl) as Tom Clancy's hero Jack Ryan, previously played by Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin and Ben Affleck.

Brazilian website Cinema em Cena contacted Meirelles today and he confirmed that he is considering directing By Any Means Necessary. However, he said that he is not so sure about taking the job at the moment, because he is finishing Blindness and already has another project in development.

The story will not be based on a Clancy novel but will be an original script.
