Nicholas Hoult To Play J.D. Salinger In 'Rebel In The Rye'

31 August 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While the mystique of Harper Lee was somewhat compromised by the publication of her "new novel" "Go Set A Watchman," an air of mystery still hangs strong around J.D. Salinger. Two years ago, the documentary and book "Salinger" tried to peel back the layers obscuring the author of "The Catcher In The Rye," and a new feature film will attempt to bring him to life.

Danny Strong, the writer behind "Recount," "The Butler" and "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1," will make his feature directing debut with a drama that will follow Salinger through his rebellious youth, the bloody front lines of World War II, his enduring great loves and terrible loss, his halcyon days in the pages of the New Yorker, »

26 August 2015 12:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During the D23 Convention earlier this month, Disney announced the full cast for their highly-anticipated Star Wars spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Felicity Jones had already been confirmed, but the studio revealed that Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Alan Tudyk, Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Wen Jiang and Jonathan Aris will be joining her. Unfortunately, the studio didn't divulge any details about their characters, but Mads Mikkelsen recently shed some light on his role in an interview with the German site Ekstra Bladet, where the actor confirms he isn't playing a villain.

"It is a very important role, as much I can say. No, my character is actually not a bad guy, and then I can not say more. I can also say that the movie will be shot in Iceland and England. And the filming will last for three months."

Production is already under way at Pinewood Studios in London, »

'Sons Of Anarchy' Spinoff In Development

26 August 2015 11:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Spinoffs and reboots aren't just relegated to the film world. Television executives have figured out that a way to keep popular, existing brands going is by continuing the stories in a sideways manner. Of course, AMC has achieved this with great success via "Breaking Bad" offshoot "Better Call Saul," and now FX is going to give it a try for one of their recently retired programs. Read More: Review: Antoine Fuqua Smith's 'Southpaw' Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker & Rachel McAdams  EW reveals that Kurt Sutter is currently developing a "Sons Of Anarchy" spinoff. There aren't many details, but the twist is that this new show will focus on the Mayans, the Hispanic motorcycle gang featured in the original show. Right now, Sutter is generating the idea, with the plan to executive produce and hand off showrunning duties to someone else. Good idea? Bad idea? Or should Sutter move on? »

24 August 2015 3:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Shooting on the first standalone movie set in a galaxy far, far away recently kicked off in London. To coincide with its official production debut, Lucasfilm wowed the world with that first compelling look at the leading cast in uniform. If we hadn’t already been clued in at Star Wars Celebration, that single photo left no room for doubt: Gareth Edwards plans to make Star Wars: Rogue One (or Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) a dark, atmospheric experience. Right from the drab, battered uniforms of the rebels to the shadowy locale.

And now, thanks to one of the movie’s stars, Donnie Yen, that wardrobe trend looks poised to continue. In an image posted to Instagram – which has since been deleted – Yen revealed a series of Stormtrooper helmets potentially for inclusion in the movie along with the following caption:

“I am the force and I fear nothing… »

Forest Whitaker Will Make His Broadway Debut in Eugene O'Neill Play, 'Hughie'

24 August 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Forest Whitaker will make his Broadway debut next spring in a revival of “Hughie,” a play by Eugene O’Neill, set in a New York City hotel in 1928, and centers on a hustler named Erie Smith, who confides in a night clerk. O'Neil wrote the play in the 1940s, and it was first staged on Broadway in 1964, starring Jason Robards. This new revival will be directed by Michael Grandage, former artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse in London, who won a 2010 Tony Award for his direction of “Red.”  There was a 1975 revival that starred Ben Gazzara, followed by another revival, in 1996, starring Al Pacino. The “Hughie” revival will be produced by Darren Bagert along with the Michael »

Forest Whitaker Will Make His Broadway Debut With Hughie

24 August 2015 12:48 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Wrap reports that Forest Whitaker will take his first turn on a Broadway stage as one of the stars in Hughie, a revival of a two-character Eugene O'Neill drama. In the short play, according to the trade, the Oscar-winning actor will appear as Erie Smith, a hustler who lives in a midtown New York hotel and tells stories of the deceased, titular Hughie and his glory days. (In other words, it's kind of like A Long, Glorified, But Very Good Monologue Starring Forest Whitaker and Friend/Talented Listener.) Michael Grandage is reportedly set to direct the production, which will debut next spring at the Schubert Theatre. The other role has not yet been cast. »

Star Wars: Rogue One could see a major character return

24 August 2015 12:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

If reports are correct, a major Star Wars character could be making a return in 2016's spin-off, Rogue One...

Nb: This piece contains a potential spoiler for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

As part of its plans for a whole galaxy of Star Wars films, Disney's set to intersperse full-blown sequels with a separate series of spin-offs, starting with next year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

As we already know, Rogue One will be set before the events of 1977's A New Hope, and will detail how the Rebels managed to swipe those precious Death Star plans from the evil Empire. Monsters and Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is at the helm, with the recently-confirmed cast comprising Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker and Mads Mikkelsen, to name a few.

That's quite a cast. But if a recent report is true, then a particularly famous »

Will Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin Return For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?

23 August 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Might we see Grand Moff Tarkin return to a galaxy far, far away? We just may, if the Daily Mail Online is correct. According to them, Peter Cushing will indeed return as the ruthless Grand Moff Tarkin for Gareth EdwardsRogue One: A Star Wars Story. Yes, the legendary actor passed away back in 1994 at the age of 81, but death clearly isn’t quite the handicap it used to be in Hollywood.

Apparently, the plan is to recreate the character with Cushing’s likeness using the latest computer-generated wizardry. “This is one of the most complex and costly CGI re-creations ever,” a source told the site. “Cushing is a pivotal plot line as he was the one to create Darth Vader and there’s a whole backstory that will come out.”

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will reportedly digitally recreate Peter Cushing for Grand Moff Tarkin return

23 August 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from the rumour that Disney is looking to cast a “strong young female” lead for Star Wars: Episode VIII comes a report from The Daily Mail suggesting that Lucasfilm and Ilm are set to digitally recreate Peter Cushing for a return as Grand Moff Tarkin in the 2016 spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

According to a ‘source’ for the newspaper, “This is one of the most complex and costly CGI re-creations ever. They are going through hours and hours of old footage from the horror movies to recreate his legs and feet to produce realistic movements. It is eerie to see someone who has been dead for so long come to life on a screen.”

7 Reasons That Rogue One Could Be The Best Star Wars Film Ever

21 August 2015 10:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With all of the newly announced entries into the Star Wars universe beginning to take shape, only one of them stands out as different from the others, and actually seems to warrant fan’s attention.

That film is Star Wars: Rogue One, a “heist” film that will revolve around a rag-tag group of Rebel soldiers who are tasked with stealing the blueprints of the Empire’s disastrous planet destroying Deathstar. The cast of characters will be new for the film universe, and far more diverse than any other Star Wars movie sans-Force Awakens.

 

Just look at who’s in it: You’ve got Felicity Jones as the leader of “things,” Forest Whitaker sporting the ‘Forest Whitaker Eye,’ Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Diego Luna, Wen Jiang, Johnathan Aris, Mads Mikkelsen as ‘Hannibal the Fannibal,’ and Ben Mendelsohn as ‘That Guy Killed by Bane.’

But what exactly are the reasons behind »

'Crow' Remake Still Happening Swears Creator James O'Barr

17 August 2015 7:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans of The Crow desperately awaiting the reboot haven't had the best of luck over the past few years. Earlier this month, the project's studio home, Relativity Media, filed for bankruptcy, stalling it yet again, despite reports that the studio still planned on starting production this fall. James O'Barr, who created the comic book the original movie and the reboot is based on, revealed at the Twin Tiers Comic Con in Elmira, NY last weekend that the movie will still happen, once they find a new studio. Here's what he had to say at the Twin Tiers panel, hosted by ComicBook.com.

"It's still very much a live property. The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. And Relativity made like a hundred bad movies and lost money so now they're in financial trouble. So the producers are just »

'Star Wars Rogue One': Is Diego Luna Playing Biggs Darklighter?

17 August 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During the D23 Expo this weekend, Disney and LucasFilm revealed the first official cast photo for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, which is currently in production at Pinewood Studios in London. The image gave us our first look at Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Jiang Wen and Donnie Yen, although these characters' identities were not yet revealed. Shortly after the image debuted, an interesting theory started sprouting up, which posits that Diego Luna may be playing a character already established in the Star Wars universe, Biggs Darklighter.

Twitter user Eleven Thirty Ate posted a side-by-side photo of Diego Luna in this new image, and Garrick Hagon as Biggs Darklighter from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, which suggests that they both have very similar hairstyles and mustaches. That is by no means a full confirmation, but the possibility is certainly intriguing, especially since no details about any of these characters have been released. »
