Slowly but surely, casting is really beginning to heat up on Godless, the all-new Western in the works as a Netflix limited series.
Headed up by Steven Soderbergh and Scott Frank – the pair last collaborated on Out of Sight – we brought you the news two weeks ago that up-and-comer Jack O’Connell had closed a deal to star, and now Deadline is reporting that Jeff Daniels and Scoot McNairy of Batman V Superman have their eyes set on the Wild West.
No mention of which roles Daniels and McNairy are in contention for – we assume one or the other will step into the dusty shoes of Frank Griffin – but it’s understood that should both stars put pen to paper, they’ll be bound for a remote New Mexico mining town in the 1800s.
At the heart of that period yarn, though, is Griffin, a “menacing outlaw who is terrorizing »

Who will portray the most famous secret agent in the world in his next adventure? Recently we heard a claim that Daniel Craig had decided not to return as James Bond, despite a reported offer of close to $100 million for two more films. Furthering that idea, according to Deadline, Craig is reportedly finalizing a deal to join Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky, a thriller revolving around criminals who plot a heist during a Nascar race in North Carolina. That film is expected to start production this fall, with Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Channing Tatum, Riley Keough and Katherine Heigl tapped to star. If Craig is done with the iconic role, who might be ready to step into James Bond's shoes? Actresses Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) and Priyanka Chopra (Quantico, the...

With Daniel Craig having recently signed on to join the cast of Steven Soderbergh's heist flick Logan Lucky, it's becoming more likely that the man may just not return for a fifth Bond film. Craig has never seemed particularly excited about the franchise, to say the least, so it would be no surprise that the powers that be would look into a possible replacement. Word is that Jamie Bell has already... Read More »

If you’re a person who spends any time reading about movies on the Internet, you’ll no doubt recall Daniel Craig‘s — perhaps comic! — claim that he’d rather slash his wrists than do another James Bond movie. We weren’t too wild about Spectre, either, but… yikes! Those are, make no mistake, words of enthusiasm, but not the kind producers typically hope their stars will throw out during the standard press tour.
The pieces for his departure are falling into place. First, Deadline have word he and Katherine Heigl are looking to board Steven Soderbergh‘s feature-filmmaking return, Logan Lucky, which increasingly looks like a very real thing. Despite the director’s initial denials, a new round of casting updates — earlier stories told of involvement from Michael Shannon, Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, and Seth Macfarlane — comes with something a bit more substantial: Nascar will grant the project some form of support, »

Exclusive: Jeff Daniels and Scoot McNairy are in talks to board Scott Frank’s Godless for Netflix, joining the previously announced Jack O’Connell. The project is a limited period drama series from the Out of Sight duo of Steven Soderbergh and Scott Frank. Written, directed and executive produced by Frank, Godless is a Western set in an 1800s New Mexico mining town. The project, which is currently casting, is set to film in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

According to Deadline, Craig will be costarring with Katherine Heigl, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Channing Tatum, and Riley Keough in the high-speed crime thriller about brothers who conspire to shake up a Nascar race by committing an almost unthinkable heist. Few details about the undercover plot that has been let out of the gate so far.
Logan Lucky is a new starting line for Soderbergh, who had previously said to THR in 2015 that “I don’t have an interest in making another theatrical film unless my attitude changes or the business changes…film is increasingly fear-based in its decision-making, and that’s not a good base to be creative".
In the months leading up to the release of last year's James Bond adventure Spectre, franchise star Daniel Craig made more than this fair share of disparaging remarks about both the franchise itself and the title character, 007. It seemed clear from many industry observers that Spectre would be Daniel Craig's last James Bond movie, although nothing has been set in stone quite yet. While we wait for the official announcement, it seems another actor has thrown his hat in the ring as a possible replacement, Fantastic Four star Jamie Bell.
Deadline reports that Jamie Bell has been in discussions about the role with producer Barbara Broccoli, one of the longtime 007 producers alongside Michael G. Wilson, who is also producing Jamie Bell's new project Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool. Nothing is confirmed, and this report reveals that there isn't even a working script for James Bond 25 yet. »
Daniel Craig's plate is getting awfully full right now, and it's not with future missions as 007. Craig is in the midst of closing a deal that would have him joining the cast of Steven Soderbergh's heist flick Logan Lucky, along with Katherine Heigl. The film already stars Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Channing Tatum and Riley Keough as part... Read More »

While Steven Soderbergh tends to count A-list types like George Clooney, Matt Damon and Channing Tatum among his roster of regular players, he’s also known for making more leftfield choices from time to time. But if you had told us that the former star of “Grey’s Anatomy” would feature in a Soderbergh joint, we would have […]

Actor Daniel Craig hasn't exactly been quiet regarding how burnt out he is on playing James Bond for a fifth time. Perhaps the most extreme comments he made was several months back to Yahoo!, when he said:
“I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists… I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.[...]"For at least a year or two, I just don’t want to think about it. I don’t know what the next step is. I’ve no idea. Not because I’m trying to be cagey. Who the f— knows? At the moment, we’ve done it. I’m not in discussion with anybody about anything. If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money.”
Ever since his comments, many have assumed that Spectre would be his last go at Bond, »

Daniel Craig’s storied departure from MGM’s James Bond franchise has taken another turn today.
According to Deadline, the British actor is now circling a role in Logan Lucky, Steven Soderbergh’s Nascar heist drama – and much-touted return to directing – that has also opened negotiations with Katherine Heigl. In tandem with the report, the outlet goes on to reveal that Jamie Bell is now tipped for the vacant James Bond role, after hosting talks with Barbara Broccoli, who holds a long-term producing gig on MGM’s prestigious spy series.
Bell, who co-starred with Daniel Craig in Edward Zwick’s war thriller Defiance, is perhaps one of the more left-field choices for the license to kill, given that Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston and a handful of other British actors are also seemingly in contention. Heck, Gillian Anderson even tossed her name into the hat earlier this week.
As for Logan Lucky, »

Daniel Craig and Katherine Heigl are the latest to join Steven Soderbergh's hillbilly heist comedy Logan Lucky, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Heigl is attached, sources say, and Craig has an offer, with negotiations expected to commence shortly. The film, which was being shopped as a hot package in Cannes, stars Channing Tatum and Michael Shannon and boasts Adam Driver, Riley Keough and Seth MacFarlane in supporting roles. Soderbergh, who hasn't helmed a movie since 2013's medical thriller Side Effects and vowed that he was retired from film, is making the switch back to the big screen with Logan Lucky,

15 years ago today, Star Trek: Voyager concluded its run on UPN. The series had launched the network (which has since merged with The WB to become The CW) with a two-hour pilot episode in 1995, while Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was still airing new episodes in syndication. It was the first Star Trek series to feature a female commanding officer in the lead role, with Kate Mulgrew playing Captain Kathryn Janeway before she went on to get TV attention again for Orange Is the New Black. Mulgrew reprised her role as Janeway in the 2002 feature film Star Trek: Nemesis. Voyager never garnered the adoration that fans had for the original series and The Next Generation, but it lasted for seven seasons on Upn from 1995 to 2001. Other notable May 23 happenings in pop culture history: • 1950: The Asphalt Jungle, one of Marilyn Monroe’s earliest films, opened in theaters. • 1964: Ella Fitzgerald »

Even in this era of too much TV, summer remains a slow period. Though broadcasters are no longer content to run wall-to-wall reruns from June through August, they still save their top guns for fall and midseason. That leaves an opening for cable. Channels looking to make noise with original efforts can do so in the hottest months without going head-to-head with broadcast’s biggest shows. This summer, a handful of networks are looking to take advantage of that opportunity.
What’s coming: “Preacher” (May 22) and “Feed the Beast” (June 5) (pictured top)
What’s at stake: At first glance, AMC is riding high. Last year, freshman series “Fear the Walking Dead,” “Better Call Saul,” and “Into the Badlands” debuted to the highest, second-highest, and third-highest ratings of any scripted cable series ever in Nielsen live-plus-three viewing. But those big bows came on the back of “The Walking Dead,” TV »

In the age of reboots, no property — no matter how recent, revered or reviled — is off-limits. The latest case in point: Steven Soderbergh's entertaining "Ocean's" trilogy, itself a remake of the 1960 Rat Pack classic, which only concluded nine years ago. Not unlike "Ghostbusters," the caper dramedy is set to be remade in all-female form, with Sandra Bullock leading the cast and Gary Ross ("The Hunger Games") directing. Rumor has it that Jennifer Lawrence is now a distinct possibility to join the franchise as well. Read More: Dream Casting the All-Female 'Ocean's Eleven' Remake, Starring Sandra Bullock It wouldn't be the first time she'd worked with Ross, of course, as the actress first came to international attention for playing Katniss Everdeen in the "Hunger Games" series. Over the last few years, she and the director have also been at various stages of development on two other projects — namely, »

The Hollywood Reporter's third Cannes Film Festival daily issue includes a look at producers' direct negotiations to sell films, a chat with Huayi Brothers Pictures CEO Jerry Ye and exclusive news that Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky has sold to China. Who Needs a Sales Agent? At least three major domestic rights deals have closed on the ground in Cannes, none of which were negotiated by domestic sales agents: Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Killing of a Sacred Deer to A24, Paul Verhoeven’s Elle to Sony Pictures Classics and Mike Leigh’s Peterloo to Amazon Studios. In each case, the films’ producers negotiated directly with the
