Rosamund Pike is set to star in The Deep Blue Good-By alongside Christian Bale.

The Oscar-nominated Gone Girl actress is joining the cast in the adaptation of John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee books.

According to Empire, Bale will play McGee, a detective from Florida and "salvage consultant".

The Deep Blue Good-By is the first of 21 books about McGee so 20th Century Fox has plenty of potential for future sequels.

James Mangold will direct from a script written by Dennis Lehane and Scott Frank.

Week in Review: Spend the night at the Godzilla Hotel in Japan

27 February 2015 10:36 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anyone who has ever watched the Godzilla films knows that he isn’t a monster at all. More of a protector really. So this hotel room opening in Tokyo, really is quite soothing to know you have someone looking over you. Not scary at all, honestly.

For just $334 a night on weekdays, you can have Godzilla’s hand looming over you as you sleep and a statue of the kaiju peacefully guarding your doorway. You can even get a room that looks directly out at a Godzilla head mounted on the roof of the hotel.

Ah the Japanese; so like us.

We all know Michael Keaton should’ve won an Oscar last Sunday. In fact, he probably thought so too. Take a look at this Vine, in which it kind of looks like he’s putting a piece of paper, maybe an acceptance speech back into his jacket pocket right »

Rosamund Pike set for The Deep Blue Good-By opposite Christian Bale

27 February 2015 7:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having enjoyed critical acclaim and an Oscar nomination for her work in the superb Gone Girl, Rosamund Pike has wasted no time in choosing her next project.

Variety is reporting that the British actress is set to join Oscar winner Christian Bale (The Fighter, The Dark Knight Trilogy) in The Deep Blue Good-By, an adaptation of a Travis McGee novel to be directed by James Mangold, who worked with Bale in his 3:10 To Yuma remake in 2007.

Travis McGee is a detective in John D. MacDonald’s popular mystery series, and The Deep Blue Good-by was first published in 1964. The official synopsis of the story is:

Travis McGee is a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He.s also a knight-errant who.s wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule »

Tanner Beard Talks Working With Malick and his roles on and off the screen

27 February 2015 5:53 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

I got the chance to chat with the multi-talented Tanner Beard about his time as Executive Producer on the latest Terrence Malick film Knight of Cups. Malick brings his spiritual effervescence to the vapid decadence of Hollywood, and the results look to be distastefully incandescent. Tanner Beard provides Malick what he needs to deliver on that vision. But he also acts, writes, and directs. Outside of Knight Of Cups he’s got a Western, an animated feature, a Christmas Comedy, and a couple documentaries on the back burner. But he’s thankful to stay so busy in an industry he loves, and it was a pleasure to discuss the details of his career. Check it out!

Q. People tend to demonize producers as these constant obstacles on the director and crew. But how does that differ or stand in the independent market? 

A. Well... Taking Knight Of Cups out of the equation. »

Rosamund Pike Joins The Deep Blue Good-By

26 February 2015 4:17 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With The Deep Blue Good-By landing the services of Christian Bale to star and James Mangold to direct, 20th Century Fox’s adaptation of John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee books is coming together at last. The next part of puzzle is finding a female lead, and it looks like Rosamund Pike will fill that role.Bale is playing charismatic rogue McGee, a Floridian sleuth and “salvage consultant” who is always getting into deeper water than he intends with dangerous women and very bad men. The Deep Blue Good-By represents the first of the McGee books, and with 21 tomes in MacDonald’s series so far, Fox will be hoping this one has legs so it can make more. After a somewhat torturous development process, Mangold is set in the director’s chair, working from a script that has seen input from Dennis Lehane and Scott Frank. Pike, last seen as »

Film Review: ‘Dragon Blade’

26 February 2015 4:14 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A sumptuously realized war epic about Romans getting embroiled in Chinese military and architectural shenanigans on the Silk Road, “Dragon Blade” plays as recklessly with classical history as “300” did, but is far less butch and bloody, treating East-West friction with as much ambassadorial goodwill as an Unesco fund-raising ball. Toplined by Jackie Chan, with John Cusack and Adrien Brody chipping in substantial screen time, the $65 million megahit flexes China’s Brobdingnagian filmmaking muscle and sees Hong Kong helmer-scribe Daniel Lee stepping up from a uneven portfolio to execute a colossal entertainment with solid technique and terrific storytelling smarts. Already slated for a U.S. release, the pic grossed $54.8 million domestically in four days, making it champion of the Chinese New Year blockbuster coliseum. International play may be less impressive, but the film will still be profitable on ancillary.

Touted as the first Chinese film to feature Romans as its main topic, »

The adaptation is currently set up over at Fox with Chernin Entertainment and Appian Way set to produce.

I think we can all (or at least, most of us) agree Rosamund Pike was more than deserving of an Oscar on Sunday for her performance in Gone Girl. Julianne Moore is a very good actor, but this was no competition. Thankfully, her performance let filmmakers see all the talent they could mine from her, which we can hope means great roles moving forward. One potentially great role is in the adaptation of John D. MacDonald's 1964 novel The Deep Blue Good-by, the first of twenty-one novels featuring the character Travis McGee, who will be played by Christian Bale. James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line) will direct a script by Dennis Lehane, with the most recent draft by Scott Frank. amz asin="B009FKTTMQ" size="small"No matter what the material is, if you put Bale and Pike in a film together, I will be there opening day. »

Every Day I'm Hustling: Film’s 10 most memorable con artists

25 February 2015 2:17 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Big Willy’s latest big screen outing makes its way to the multiplex this month. In Focus, Smith plays the consummate con man, a smooth operator who liberates people of their wealth with the help of a Margot Robbie-shaped femme fatale.

The duo of tricksters aren’t the first con artists to grace the silver screen however. So from pool sharks and grifters to tricksters, card cheats and American hustlers; here’s our rundown of the most memorable con artists in movie history.

 

Fast Eddie Felson – The Hustler (1961)

One of the finest fraudster films to ever grace the multiplex; The Hustler stars Paul Newman as Fast Eddie Felson, a pool shark intent on toppling legendary cue-man Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason). With its smoky sets, stunning black and white cinematography and superb performances from Newman and Gleason; the film is just as good today as it was on its release more than 50 years ago. »

Best of Late Night TV: 'Parks and Recreation' Cast Kisses Goodbye; Josh Duhamel, Gabrielle Union Throw Food (Video)

24 February 2015 11:05 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Seth Meyers had the cast of "Parks and Recreation" on his show Tuesday night for their big final goodbye. Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Retta, Jim O'Heir and Mike Schur discussed filming the finale, and revealed their own pitches for how they wanted the show to end. Since it's also the one-year anniversary of Seth's show, they sang an anniversary song for him, but they didn't rehearse it, so it didn't go too well. What did go very well was their "Bye, Bye Li'l Sebastian" song on the way out -- complete with Jim (Gerry) and Aubrey (April) making out, to the surprise of everyone around them. »
