Nocturnal Animals already sounds as if it could be a future awards contender. Not only will the decadently stylized eye of director Tom Ford oversee it, but it has now amassed an all-star cast of Hollywood talent . including Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams and Joaquin Phoenix - that immediately sets it apart. An adaptation of Austin Wright.s 1993 book "Tony and Susan," Nocturnal Animals will tell the story of Susan, a woman who receives a mysterious manuscript from her ex-husband asking her opinion on it. The novel follows two narrative paths from that point, one about Susan.s ex-husband.s book (which is about a family vacation that soon goes awry and results in death and violence) and of Susan herself, who thinks back on her first marriage and various key truths. But who will be playing the key roles of this interesting drama? Well, at the top of the list »

Yesterday marked the one year wait for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, we are one day closer to seeing this epic DC Comics movie play out on the big screen, and 5 character portraits richer for our troubles. Thus far, director Zack Snyder has been kind enough to offer a look at his superheroes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. And then yesterday, he finally unveiled the very bald Lex Luthor. We've collected them all for you to see here!
Can you believe it's been almost two years since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was first announced at Comic-Con 2013? It wasn't until several months later, on March 13, 2014, that we got our first look at Ben Affleck in his new Batman costume standing next to the Batmobile, which sent fans into a frenzy. Four months went by before we got our first look at Henry Cavill in his new Superman costume, »
Following on from yesterday’s news that George Clooney will produce the next project for writer-director Tom Ford, today sees Variety reporting that Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are in aggressive pursuit of the lead roles in the adaptation, titled Nocturnal Animals. While firm offers have yet to be made, “insiders say it is headed in that direction.”
The fact that potential casting news has so closely followed the announcement of the project and its producers is indicative of the momentum that is building behind this film – the second directorial outing for fashion designer Tom Ford. His previous effort, 2009’s A Single Man earned an Academy Award nomination for its lead actor, Colin Firth, as well as Golden Globe nominations for Firth and lead actress Julianne Moore. Ford penned that adapted script, which is why such excitement has sprung up around Nocturnal Animals – it being his second adapted script for film. »

Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams are reportedly circling writer/director Tom Ford's postmodern thriller "Nocturnal Animals," to be produced by George Clooney. The Hollywood Reporter says Gyllenhaal is attached to star, and that Adams is currently in talks. There's also talk of Joaquin Phoenix and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (who played John Lennon in "Nowhere boy" and is married to "Fifty Shades" director Sam Taylor-Johnson) potentially being chased for roles. Gyllenhaal has just finished his Broadway stint in "Constellations" and has Antoine Fuqua's gritty boxing drama "Southpaw" coming this year along with Jean-Marc Vallee's "Demolition." Adams will also be working with the busy Vallee on "The Story of Your Life" and reprises her role as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice," which is in post-production.

Sneak Peek the first official look @ actor Jesse Eisenberg, playing young 'Lex Luthor', plus a behind-the-scenes look at the actor, with and without his hairpiece, on the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":
...described as "...a power-mad, evil scientist" of high intelligence and incredible technological prowess.
Luthor's ultimate goal of killing 'Superman' was to be a stepping stone to his evil domination of the universe.
In subsequent comic books, Luthor became hairless as the result of an artist's mistake. A 1960 story by Jerry Siegel expanded upon Luthor's origin and motivations, revealing him to be a childhood friend of Superman's who lost his hair when a fire destroyed his laboratory. »

Though Suicide Squad is not necessarily tied directly into Justice League, we know that it is part of DC and Warner Bros.' expansive cinematic universe. So, many believe that this third film in their planned series will somehow connect to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While it has been widely rumored that both Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor will make appearances at some point, Latino Review is back with yet another rumor that claims the movie will also tease a connection to Aquaman. It seems that Amanda Waller, who brings this group of super villains together for an impossible mission, has had her own run in with the legendary Atlantis superhero.
In a recent interview, Viola Davis called her Amanda Waller a brutal badass. That may be true if this latest tidbit proves to be accurate. According to El Mayimbe, Waller is »
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Adams is currently in talks for the lead role in fashion designer/film director Tom Ford's sophomore feature Nocturnal Animals, with Jake Gyllenhaal attached to play Adams' male counterpart. Further, Joaquin Phoenix and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are also being sought for key roles in the film, a bit of casting that would reunite Phoenix with Adams, whom he acted opposite in 2013's Her. With Adams, Gyllenhaal, and Phoenix potentially working together in the same film, I'd say that alone makes this worth keeping an eye on, but the fact it is a thriller, my favorite genre of film, piques my interest even more. Add in George Clooney and Grant Heslov (The Ides of March) as producers and you've basically got me stashing away funds for a ticket to the film, which Ford adapted from Austin Wright's 1993 novel "Tony and Susan". Below is the synopsis of Wright's novel, »

Both Amy Adams hand Jake Gyllenhaal had considerable awards buzz last year, though neither ended up getting nominated at the Academy Awards for their respective roles in Big Eyes and Nightcrawler.

The project doesn't have a studio yet, but Smokehouse has a first-look deal with Sony, so it could easily end up there. As of now Adams is in talks to star while Gyllenhaal is reportedly attached as the male lead. In addition, Joaquin Phoenix and Aaron Taylor-Johnson may also end up with roles. The film is based on Austin Wright's 1993 book Tony and Susan, which follows a woman named Susan (Adams) who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, »

Whether you appreciated the elegance of his filmmaking debut, A Single Man, or are one of the four people who can afford his clothes, Tom Ford is a compelling figure. He’s returning to filmmaking circles shortly with a thriller called Nocturnal Animals and is tapping the ex-Nightcrawler Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams for parts in the film.Ford’s follow-up to the 2009 Christopher Isherwood adaptation is another interpretation of a novel, this time an Austin Wright tale called Tony And Susan. The set-up involves the intriguingly meta-sounding device of a book-within-a-book. The first part sees a woman, Susan (Adam’s character, if she signs up), sent a manuscript by the husband she left two decades earlier, requesting her feedback.The second element dives into the manuscript itself. It’s called Nocturnal Animals and follows a family holiday that goes violently wrong, before reverting back to Susan’s recollections of her past marriage. »

Early this morning, it was finally revealed that Jesse Eisenberg is in fact playing a very bald Lex Luthor. The ultimate DC Comics villain was unveiled in his new big screen incarnation in honor of the one year wait we still have for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to hit theaters. And over the next twelve months, more and more of the virtually unknown plot will surely leak out. Badass Digest is helping that idea along with new story details, which give us a reason why the last son of Krypton and The Dark Knight are throwing fists in each other's direction. And if this rumor pans out, it looks like it's all Lex Luthor's fault.
It's no secret that Bruce Wayne and Kal-El are going to go toe-to-toe in an epic battle that is said to come halfway through the movie, before these two team up to take on a common foe. »

Yesterday, we reported that A-list fashion designer turned award-winning filmmaker, Tom Ford, finally signed on to direct his second film Nocturnal Animals. Unsurprisingly, the project has swiftly drawn the attention of some of today's best working actors. Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are in talks to join Ford's adaptation of the Austin Wright book Tony and Susan. THR reports that Joaquin Phoenix and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are also being pursued for lead roles. The story-in-a-story follows two narratives: the first centers on a woman named Susan who receives a manuscript called "Nocturnal Animals" from the ex-husband she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion on his book; the second follows the story of the book itself, about a man whose family vacation turns deadly. As the two narratives intertwine, Susan finds herself reflecting on her first marriage and facing some dark truths about herself.
