Coen Brothers Cast Alden Ehrenreich in 'Hail Caesar'

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Alden Ehrenreich is in negotiations to join the growing cast of Joel Coen and Ethan Coen's Hail Caesar. No details were given regarding the character he will play, but the actor joins a cast that already includes George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill.

The story follows Eddie Mannix, a "fixer" who works for the major Hollywood movie studios in the 1950s, trying to keep actors and actresses in line to avoid any scandal. Back in May, we reported that Mannix is based on Fred Otash, a spy for Confidential Magazine who dug up dirt on celebrities in the 1950s.

Joel Coen and Ethan Coen are directing from their own original script, with Working Title Films' Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner producing. Shooting is scheduled to get under way sometime this fall.

Alden Ehrenreich most recently starred in Beautiful Creatures, »

Alden Ehrenreich In Talks For Hail Caesar!

3 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Beautiful Creatures may not have rocketed him into the Ya franchise hall of fame, but Alden Ehrenreich has been finding plenty of work regardless. Woody Allen hired him for Blue Jasmine and he’s currently in talks to join the star-studded ensemble lining up for Joel and Ethan Coen’s latest, Hail Caesar!.The film, which already boasts Coen veterans George Clooney and Josh Brolin alongside Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill and Ralph Fiennes, revolves around a 1950's private eye/fixer who tracks down and covers up scandals for studios to keep the stars in line.Fiennes will be a director under contract to one of the studios, while Tatum is a Gene Kelly-type star. Swinton, meanwhile, will be on the other side of the studio gates, hunting for juicy stories as a gossip columnist, presumably along the Louella Parsons or Hedda Hopper lines. So far, »

New 'Whiplash' Trailer is Not Safe for Work and Probably Best Unseen

25 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I saw Whiplash last week and while I'm saving my review for the Toronto Film Festival I will say if you're already interested in seeing this you may want to skip this newest trailer out of France. As with most trailers, it gives away a few key events, not to mention I walked into this movie knowing absolutely nothing about it other than it was a movie about a music school drummer (Miles Teller) and his instructor (J.K. Simmons) and to have Simmons' character come completely out of nowhere is something I think every movie lover should experience. Then again, what the hell do I know, I hardly watch any trailers so maybe knowing 75% of the story and every character trait before walking into a movie is the only way to watch movies nowadays. I will, however, say this... I wouldn't mind seeing Miles Teller score an Oscar nomination and »

'Bond 24' Villain Will Be Similar to Jaws and Oddjob

23 August 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Bond 24 is rumored to be a direct continuation of Skyfall, we know that Javier Bardem will not be returning as main villain Raoul Silva (if you've seen the movie, you know why). Now, a new report indicates that this sequel is looking to bring back the type of villain that was prevalent in the 60s and 70s entries in the franchise.

According to mi6, Bond 24 is looking to cast a giant brute of a henchman that will tower over Daniel Craig. This character, named Hinx, is said to be in the same vein as Jaws, introduced in 1979's Moonraker and played Richard Kiel, and Oddjob, who appeared in the 1964 installment Goldfinger and was played by Harold Sakata.

Here is mi6's description of the character:

Casting has begun for the main assassin, with the search specifically focussed on someone extremely physically fit and over 6&#8242 2&#8243. Whoever wins the »

'Bond 24' Looking to Cast a New, Iconic Henchman

23 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Who was the last memorable henchman in a James Bond filmc I have to say it was probably Famke Janssen as Xenia Onatopp in Goldeneye... rightc Before her I would say Jaws (Richart Kiel) and Oddjob (Harold Sakata) are most memorable to me, but it most certainly has been a while since a Bond villain had a satisfying henchman to do his/her dirty work, but a new report from James Bond Radio suggest that may be changing with Bond 24. The report says director Sam Mendes is looking to bring back the henchman with a character named Hinx, with the following character description, reportedly directly from the casting agency: Hinx (Male, 30 - 45) Ideally over 6c 2c. Hinx is the main henchman/assassin. We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor. He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. He has to drive. »

Bond 24 seeking an iconic, physically imposing henchman like Oddjob and Jaws

23 August 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems that Sam Mendes is looking to bring back the classic henchman character for Daniel Craig’s next outing in Bond 24, with MI6-hq reporting that casting is underway for the main assassin, who is described as a physically imposing henchman in the vein of iconic Bond villains Oddjob (Harold Sakata) and Jaws (Richard Kiel).

According to the site, the character is going by the working name of ‘Hinx’ and will have several altercations with Craig’s 007, along with a driving sequence. The casting breakdown suggest they are looking for a male between 30-45 with an “unusual” look, and possibly from a sports background.

The currently untitled Bond 24 is set for release on October 23rd 2015 in the UK and November 6th 2015 in the States, with Craig joined by returning stars Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) and Ben Whishaw (Q).

An end of the summer stab at Golden Globe predictions

22 August 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Hi everyone! As previously mentioned in my last installment, I was originally planning on waiting to take a new look at Golden Globe predictions until the summer was over (so basically September), but I couldn’t resist. I’m back now with what’s my third look at the Golden Globe Awards, with this time around, a new theory to try and drum up some different predictions. Here goes nothing! To reiterate once again, the big difference you’ll see here between the Academy and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is that they tend to go for the bigger names or the bigger productions. As such, I’ve again got Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and David Fincher’s Gone Girl ahead of Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher here. You also still potentially lose certain indie players, as you’ll see evidenced by much smaller nomination totals (or even shutouts) for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, »

Montreal World Festival

Celebrating its 38th year with a distinctly Gallic flavor, Mwff will open with “We Love You, You Bastard,” from French director — and longtime festival supporter — Claude Lelouch.

Looking back at Johnny Mnemonic

14 August 2014 3:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

One of the few big-screen adaptations of William Gibson's sci-fi, Johnny Mnemonic was largely ignored at the box-office. Kyle looks back...

By the time Johnny Mnemonic was released in 1995, screenwriter William Gibson had been writing innovative science fiction for almost 20 years. Since his first short story – the brilliant Fragments Of A Hologram Rose – was published back in 1977, Gibson had been making serious waves in the sci-fi community. He's perhaps most well-known for his game-changing 1984 novel, Neuromancer, a dark neo-noir filled with console-cowboys, sentient AIs and virtual reality – all common elements now, but Gibson's work still stands as a milestone in sci-fi literature. Gibson created the term 'cyberspace' and is seen as one of the forefathers of cyberpunk.

It's weird, then, that his novels and stories never translated to the silver screen before the mid-90s. Gibson himself had taken a pass at Alien 3 (though most of his ideas were quickly disposed of, »

Johnny Depp Is A Mustachioed Big Spender In First Mortdecai Trailer

12 August 2014 9:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Out of all the actors working today, perhaps none are more skilled at diving into larger-than-life personalities than Johnny Depp. Over the past few years, he’s played a swaggering pirate, an upper-class vampire, the Mad Hatter and a fierce Native American badass, among other nutty creations. And in next spring’s Mortdecai, he’ll be adding “debonair art dealer” to that lineup of delightfully outsized characters.

The first trailer for the film has landed today, putting the focus squarely on Depp’s mutachioed protagonist, who resembles a slick cross between Ralph Fiennes’ Gustave H. in The Grand Budapest Hotel and Steve Martin’s Inspector Clouseau in The Pink Panther. It’s a little hard to tell whether Mortdecai is more of a bumbling fool or a smooth operator from this early look, but the film looks to blend action and comedy elements. There’s not much by way of plot here, »

Teen Choice Awards: Jennifer Lopez, Tyler Posey Dance in 'Maid in Manhattan' Reunion

11 August 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Long before Tyler Posey made MTV viewers swoon on Teen Wolf, the actor played Jennifer Lopez's son in Maid in Manhattan — and he made sure everybody knew it during the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday. Twelve years after the rom-com that cast Lopez as a hotel maid who gets involved with a politician (Ralph Fiennes) was released, the co-host reunited onstage with Lopez as she presented an award. "I know we haven't seen each other since Maid in Manhattan, which was forever ago," said Posey, who played Ty Ventura in the 2002 Wayne Wang film, also featuring Natasha

Is Lea Seydoux Playing M16 Agent Miranda Frost in 'Bond 24'?

8 August 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Bond 24 is back on track, and will start shooting in December, following a short delay due to script issues, the focus has returned to casting this action-packed sequel. A new report claims that L&#233a Seydoux (Blue Is the Warmest Color) is the top choice for the female lead, opposite Daniel Craig as 007.

While no specific character details have surfaced, Schmoes Know reports that the actress may be playing Miranda Frost, a character originally portrayed by Rosamund Pike in Pierce Brosnan's last James Bond adventure, 2002's Die Another Day. Here's what a casting breakdown revealed about the character.

"Lead Female (30-40) Attractive, sophisticated, cool and calm secret agent."

This version of Miranda Frost is said to be much different than Rosamund Pike's incarnation, but it still isn't clear if this is the role that L&#233a Seydoux is being pursued for. In Die Another Day, »
