Cory Hardrict is a name that doesn't get mentioned often, when conversations are had about upcoming or even existing young black male actors. I'd readily admit that I haven't been watching his career as closely as I probably should; although I plan to invest time watching some of his most recent performances to catch up, ahead of roles in upcoming features, including this one, recently-announced. Hardrict has joined the cast of the sci-fi thriller Transcendence, which stars Johnny Depp. Morgan Freeman co-stars in the film, which is Dp Wally Pfister's directorial debut, based on a script by Jack Paglen, developed »

Levinson produced 1997 mob drama Donnie Brasco, which starred Depp as an undercover FBI agent opposite Al Pacino's gangster.
After going toe-to-toe with Leonardo DiCaprio is Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, which just hit theaters this past weekend, Joel Edgerton is now getting set to team up with Johnny Depp. Deadline says that the Australian actor is now attached to co-star with the Pirates of the Caribbean A-lister in Black Mass, the upcoming gangster biopic from director Barry Levinson. The site says that Edgerton will be playing the role of John Connolly, an FBI agent who also happened to be a childhood friend of Bulger's. It's suggested that it was because of Connolly's help that Bulger, a crime lord in Boston, Massachusetts, was able to evade capture and disappear off the grid. Depp will star as the kingpin and has the project scheduled to start production once he has completed work on Academy Award winner Wally Pfister's sci-fi directorial debut Transcendence.

"This is based on observations. This is based on people I have met, people I've known, people I've sat with and talked to. Thieves, cops, killers. It's not derived from other cinema, it's based on research." Michael Mann
Cool, measured, melancholy and stylish, Michael Mann's Heat was a box office hit in 1995, and 18 years on, its impact can still be felt. A story about two weary men on either side of the law - one a cop married to his profession, the other a career criminal with no intention of going straight - Heat is also a movie about Los Angeles, in all its sparkly opulence and grimy malaise. Other directors have attempted to bottle some of Heat's »
Laggies tells the story of a 28 year old woman stuck in perpetual adulthood, who lies to her boyfriend when he proposes marriage to her. Instead of going on a retreat as she tells him, she spends the week hanging out with a group of teenage friends.
Originally, Shelton had intended to cast actress Rebecca Hall (The Town, Iron Man 3) in the lead role, but Hall exited the project to star in Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence opposite Johnny Depp. It was at that point that Shelton cast Anne Hathaway, fresh off the heels of her Oscar win for Les Miserables. Unfortunately for Shelton, it looks like Hathaway has bowed out to star in Christopher Nolan »

When Christopher Nolan or his associates call, you pick up the phone, and Rebecca Hall certainly did, joining Nolan Cohort Wally Pfister's directorial debut "Transcendence." but that left Lynn Shelton with a bit of a problem. She needed a lead for her upcoming "Laggies," which Hall had been circling, but the director soon landed Anne Hathaway. But again, the gravitational pull of the Nolan juggernaut meant that didn't quite work out either, as she went on to do Nolan's "Interstellar." "I don't know if I'm supposed to talk about it yet, 'cause it hasn't happened yet, but there's possibly been a cast change," Shelton teased to us at Sundance London about "Laggies" recently. "Rebecca Hall was attached for a very long time, and then she got this studio movie, 'Transcendence,' and that was right when we were going to shoot, and we couldn't push it again, 'cause we'd lose our incentive money. »

In a surprising turn of events, Michael Caine has joined a Christopher Nolan film. After collaborating with the director on all three films of The Dark Knight trilogy, as well as the mind-bending Inception and the mystical The Prestige, Caine has joined Nolan's sci-fi pic Interstellar. This would be the sixth film on which the two have worked together, more than any of Nolan's other frequent collaborators. Now we'll just have to wait and see if Christian Bale or Cillian Murphy pop up to stay in the hunt. Hit the jump for more. Deadline reports that Caine will be the latest addition to Interstellar, a sci-fi story conceived by Jonathan Nolan and rewritten by Christopher Nolan. Based on the scientific theory of Caltech physicist and relativity expert Kip S. Thorne, Interstellar features “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” Caine joins Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway »

Anticipation for ‘the next Christopher Nolan film’ is usually at fever pitch by the time casting news begins to roll in, but fans have even more cause to expect greatness on the back of Nolan’s lastest casting announcement.
Having already put pen to paper with man-of-the-moment Matthew McConaughey and recent Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway, Deadline are now reporting that two-time Academy Award-nominee Jessica Chastain is set to join the cast as the film’s third lead.
A wealth of talent though this already is turning out to be, what’s even more interesting is that Nolan is yet to cast one of his ‘regulars’. One can only assume that Michael Caine will feature somewhere, but perhaps he’s been deemed too old for space/time travel? And perhaps Marion Cotillard’s last outing in a Nolan film was just too flat to warrant a recast in his next surefire hit? »

Reports have Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) in talks to star in Christopher Nolan's next film, Interstellar. This would make Chastain the third lead after Matthew McConaughey (Magic Mike) and Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises) took roles just last month. The details of the sci-fi picture are, of course, being kept under wraps, but the story is based on Caltech physicist and relativity expert Kip S. Thorne's scientific theory that wormholes exist and can be used for time travel. Hit the jump for what else we know about Interstellar. Deadline reports that Chastain would play the third lead in Interstellar if a deal is made. Character details are zilch at the moment but the pic will feature “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” Nolan recently re-wrote the script from brother Jonathan Nolan and the picture will be co-produced and distributed by both Paramount and Warner Bros. »

With writer-director Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 now playing around the world and opening in America this weekend, I recently got to speak with the cast and filmmakers here in Los Angeles. During my video interview with Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall, we talked about how their families reacted when they were cast, script changes during production, how it's hard to talk about the movie without giving away some of the twists and turns, what it was like working with Shane Black, and more. In addition, I tried to get Hall to talk about Wally Pfister's Transcendence (it didn't work), and Pearce talks briefly about The Rover with Robert Pattinson. Hit the jump to watch.
