Universal Wins Bid For Chris Pratt Starring Vehicle 'The Real McCoy'

16 April 2015 6:17 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Universal Pictures has won a bidding war against Warner Bros. for the action-adventure, The Real McCoy, with actor Chris Pratt (Jurassic World) attached to star. The action-adventure tells the true story of Bill McCoy, a bootlegger who ran rum during the Prohibition era in the 1920's. McCoy smuggled alcohol in secret from the Bahamas without involvement from the mafia that have inspired his name "The Real McCoy."

Pratt has been making waves after the success of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and will next be seen in Universal Pictures' Jurassic World. His upcoming projects include Columbia Pictures remake of The Magnificent Seven with director Antoine Fuqua with actor Denzel Washington (The Equalizer) in the leading role and the comic book adaptation of Cowboy Ninja Viking with John Wick directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch rumored to direct the film. Pratt is also rumored to take over the Indiana Jones »

Child 44 review: Tom Hardy is compelling in a paranoid Soviet thriller

16 April 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Daniel Espinosa; Screenwriter: Richard Price; Starring: Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Joel Kinnaman, Noomi Rapace, Charles Dance; Running time: 137 mins; Certificate: 15

The Russian accents in Daniel Espinosa's pitiless Soviet thriller adaptation Child 44 have already got more press than the film itself, which is both unfortunate and illustrative of a familiar problem with putting English dialogue in foreign characters' mouths. Adapted from the first novel in a trilogy by British writer Tom Rob Smith, the film is a pensive and bracingly brutal mystery which takes too long to become emotionally engaging.

Tom Hardy is characteristically compelling as Leo Demidov, a runaway orphan-turned-WW2 soldier transformed into a war hero by his role in the Battle of Berlin. Years after the war, Leo and his comrade-in-arms Alexei (Fares Fares) have taken jobs with the secret police in Moscow, under the command of Vincent Cassell's slippery Major Kuzmin.

Chris Pratt Is The Real McCoy for Universal Action-Adventure Film

15 April 2015 3:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Chris Pratt is adding yet another Indiana Jones-esque role to his potential docket. After proving himself to be a fantastic leading man in Guardians of the Galaxy, the actor has been sought after for a number of big roles, most of which are of the ruggedly handsome, charming, and daring type. That trend continues with The Real McCoy, a pitch that THR reports Universal Pictures just picked up for a cool $1.5 million with Pratt attached to star. Written by Bill Dubuque (The Judge), the pitch centers on real-life bootlegger Bill McCoy, who prided himself on being an “honest lawbreaker” during Prohibition, selling merchandise that was uncut and clean, spawning the phrase “The real McCoy.” [caption id="attachment_338439" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Universal[/caption] The project is in the very early stages and is only a pitch at this point, with Tom McNulty and Michael De Luca producing. It’s possible that, by the time this project becomes “real” (ie. »

Saturday Night Live, Ep. 40.18, “Taraji P. Henson/Mumford & Sons” kicks into gear in second half

12 April 2015 12:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Saturday Night Live, Season 40, Episode 18, “Taraji P. Henson/Mumford & Sons”

Aired April 11, 2015 at 11:30 pm Et on NBC (East coast version watched for review)

The Host: Taraji P. Henson is that elusive creature known as the “black character actress.” Yes, many have thought them extinct but, as pointed out by the wonderful podcast Denzel Washington is the Greatest Actor of All Time Period, the working black actress is something to be cherished. Henson has been working steadily since the late 90s, but thanks to her role as Cookie on Empire, she has appeared to have, per her monologue, “made it.” Henson blends in well with the cast and commits to the loony worlds the show has her inhabit. The best sketches of the night, however, are the ones that don’t have her play straight woman or second banana. This is most prominent is the obligatory Empire sketch, where Cookie »

Movie Review – Good Kill (2014)

12 April 2015 5:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Good Kill, 2014.

Written and Directed by Andrew Niccol.

Starring Ethan Hawke, January Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Bruce Greenwood and Jake Abel.

Synopsis:

A family man begins to question the ethics of his job as a drone pilot.

Many of the scenes are emotionless, repetitive and detached, set in a claustrophobic room without windows. These scenes involve the audience looking at monitors, switches and controllers, and are filmed mostly in medium or close shots of the actors’ faces. In most films this would perhaps be disagreeable and boring, but in Good Kill they are exactly what make the film work. This is modern warfare 7000 miles away from the combat zone.

In his third collaboration with director Andrew Niccol, Ethan Hawke plays Tom Egan, a Us Airforce drone pilot who is on the brink of breaking point. Through the day to day life of Egan, Niccol’s film is rewarding and stakes its »

The Odd Couples: Three Strange Ryan Reynolds Pairings

9 April 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With the new film Woman in Gold out this past weekend, it’s a wonder to think what factors casting agents take into account, especially when pairing a revered British actress with a (some would say) mediocre snarky comedic actor. Obviously Reynolds has lately been taking roles that require more dramatic skills than comedic ones. However, this trend of pairing Reynolds with actors above (or below) his caliber has been a thing for a while. Sure it’s something that’s done all the time with other actors, but this specific casting choice of Mirren/Reynolds sticks out in particular. So why not look at some past odd Ryan Reynolds’ pairings to see if this trend is a good or bad thing.

The age difference isn’t the only weird element about this “romantic” duo. Given Kristen Stewart’s general awkwardness and Ryan Reynolds’ typical charm mixed with smarm, »

Luke Grimes Joins Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven Remake

2 April 2015 3:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

MGM’s remake of the 1960 gun-totin’ Western The Magnificent Seven is bringing aboard fresh meat to fill out its sizeable roster of characters. So far the stack of actors tapped to star include Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Chris Pratt, Vincent D’Onofrio and Haley Bennett. From what’s been revealed up to this point the first three are likely to play part of the titular seven with D’Onofrio up for the baddie role and Bennett cast as the widow who kickstarts the entire shebang. That leaves another four bodies needed to round it up to seven, and American Sniper‘s Luke Grimes looks like he’s ready to go into battle.

Fuqua’s version of John Sturges’ iconic sixties original will revolve around the inhabitants of a small town after the Civil War. When an entitled mining baron (D’Onofrio) saunters into view, he sets about having his way »

Luke Grimes Cast In The Magnificent Seven

1 April 2015 2:49 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Having dealt with weapons in American Sniper, Luke Grimes should be used to being around gunslingers. That should come in handy, as Antoine Fuqua has added him to the cast of his remake of The Magnificent Seven.The ensemble so far includes Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Chris Pratt, Haley Bennett and Vincent D’Onofrio. The movie will once more see a small town – in this case built around a gold mine – threatened by a ruthless baron (D’Onofrio) and his gang of thugs. When they kill several people in their attempt to take the place over, a young widow (Bennett) hires a bounty hunter (Washington) to dispatch the bad guys, supplying him with the necessary funds to hire six gunmen to help him in his mission. Which is where Pratt, Hawke and others come into play. We’d guess that Grimes is another of the seven brought in. John Lee Hancock »
