Brown Findlay, 23, appeared in the 2011 filmAlbatross, in which her character pulls up her shirt to buy cigarettes.

“To be honest, Albatross was naiveté and not knowing that I could say no,” she tells British magazine Radio Times. “I had no idea what was going to happen and thought I was going to be shot from behind.”

Give these stars a show

The actress appeared nude again in the V Series Labyrinth, but admits that may have been her last time. “In Labyrinth, it is a very fleeting moment that we shot in one take, but I did find it very odd being naked in front of lots of people,” she said. “But actually, it’s not something I would do again.”

Everybody’s posing nude!

Brown Findlay, who surprised fans when she left the hit PBS series, also explained her decision to exit. “I was unsure about signing away another year,” she said. “Leaving terrified me, and that’s what made me want to do it. Being afraid and going into the unknown excites me and what scared me more was to keep going and then one day discover it was all I could do and wish I had pushed myself more. I’d prefer to fail and fall flat on my face.”

The action-thriller also stars Jamie Foxx as the President of the United States and opens on June 28

White House Down stars Channing Tatum as a failed applicant to the Secret Service who unwittingly ends up having to rescue the President, played by Jamie Foxx, when a paramilitary group takes over the White House. The script was written by James Vanderbilt, whose previous credits include The Amazing Spider-Man andZodiac.

The two-minute trailer amps up the tension slowly before unveiling plenty of thrills and spills in its second half, which shows Tatum channelling Bruce Willis as he tears around in a sweaty white vest brandishing a gun.

White House Down also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Richard Jenkins, James Woods and Jason Clarke. It opens in the US on June 28, as the trailer announces, but won’t arrive in UK cinemas until September 6.

Meanwhile, Roland Emmerich has recently revealed plot details for two sequels to his 1996 blockbuster Independence Day, titled ID Forever Part I and ID Forever Part II. Emmerich’s other directing credits include disaster movies The Day After Tomorrow and 2012 and 1998’s poorly-received Hollywood remake of Godzilla.

Directed by – Marc Forster    Release date: June 21, 2013

Plan B Entertainment secured the film rights in 2007 and Forster was approached to direct. In 2009, Carnahan was hired to rewrite the script to the film. Filming began in July 2011 in Malta on an estimated $125 million budget, before moving to Glasgow in August 2011 and Budapest in October 2011. Originally set for a December 2012 release, the production suffered some setbacks. In June 2012, the film’s release date was pushed back and the crew returned to Budapest for seven weeks of additional shooting. Damon Lindelof was hired to rewrite the third act, but did not have the time to finish the script and Drew Goddard was hired to rewrite it. The reshoots were due to take place between September and October 2012.

World War Z is due to be released on June 21, 2013 in 2D and RealD 3D selected theaters.



In December 2011, it was reported that Marco Beltrami has signed on to score World War Z.


World War Z was initially slated for release by Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions on December 21, 2012, but in March 2012 it was pushed back to June 21, 2013, with Paramount electing to release Jack Reacher on the December 2012 date.


In January 2012, director Marc Forster and Paramount Pictures told the Los Angeles Times that they “each view World War Z as a trilogy that would have the grounded, gun-metal realism of Matt Damon‘s Jason Bourne series tethered to the unsettling end-times vibe of AMC‘s The Walking Dead“.
