Prior to the Sundance announcements, there was a bit of buzz around Brian Horiuchi's Parts Per Billion's as a favourite for selection but when the titles were announced last week, Horiuchi's directorial debut wasn't listed, despite the interesting premise and the great cast.
Frank Langella, Gena Rowlands, Josh Hartnett, Rosario Dawson, Penn Badgley, Teresa Palmer and Alexis Bledel all star in what appears to be a trio of intersecting stories that unfold against the backdrop of a biological war which is killing millions.
The interwoven stories of three couples which are forced to make life altering decisions in the face of a disastrous war. Inspired and sometimes blinded by their love, Len, Mia, Andy, Esther, Anna and Erik are as flawed and beautiful as any of the billio [Continued ...] »
Here's the first trailer for a modern-day adaptation of William Shakespeare's Cymbeline. The movie was directed by Hamlet director Michael Almereyda, who teamed back up with Ethan Hawke to bring this story to the big screen.
The new adaptation takes "the tale of Roman and Celtic nobility battling it out and takes it to the streets. Explosions, machine guns and lots of people looking pretty grimy."
As of right now there is no release date for the film. It doesn't even have a U.S. distributor. Thanks to The Playlist.

Both director Michael Almereyda and actor Ethan Hawke are returning to Shakespeare with an adaptation of one of the Bard’s lesser known and late (perhaps even final) works. In fact, this is its first big screen treatment.
Cymbeline tells the story of Imogen, daughter of Cymbeline (King of Britain) and her elopement with Posthumus. However, problems face the loving pair when daddy decides he’s not so keen on his new son-in-law. It’s all set against the backdrop of Celtic/Roman Britain and warring factions.
Almereyda is no stranger to Shakespearean adaptations. In 2000 he tackled crowd-pleaser Hamlet, which also starred Hawke as the procrastinating Prince of Denmark, in a modern re-telling of the tragedy complete with business suits and CCTV surveillance. Cymbeline will have a Sons Of Anarchy vibe, transposing the war to drug dealers and bikers. And if the trailer’s anything to go by, it’s »

Michael Almereyda’s (Hamlet) latest film adaptation of a work of William Shakespeare, Cymbeline, has a lot going for it on the surface. Not only does it feature all of the flowery language and intricate, twisting plot elements that one would associate with a work that was penned by the Bard, but it also features an extensive ensemble cast that’s full of familiar faces, and more action than you can shake a stick at. Almereyda has taken a pretty soap opera-heavy story about love and deceit, set in a world of ancient nobility, and plopped it right down in a modern drug war between a crew of corrupt cops and a gang of unruly bikers, he’s got big stars like Ethan Hawke, Penn Badgley, Dakota Johnson, Milla Jovovich, Anton Yelchin, John Leguizamo, Ed Harris, and a handful of others helping to bring it all to life, and he’s brought more car crashes, machine »

Cymbeline unfolds as an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang set in a corruption-riddled 21st century America. In the vein of Sons of Anarchy and in the style of Romeo + Juliet, this is a fresh take on a universal story of love, betrayal and revenge. Check out the trailer, featuring Ethan Hawke, Milla Jovovich, Ed Harris, Penn Badgley and Dakota Johnson.
Four months ago, we reported that Ethan Hawke would reunite for his Hamlet director Michael Almereyda for another modern spin on the Bard’s work. This time, they’ve teamed up for one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known works, Cymbeline. In the play, the story is about [per Yahoo! Movies] “the impossible love between Imogen (Dakota Johnson) and Posthumus (Penn Badgley), and on the conniving influence of the Queen (Milla Jovovich) on her husband, King Cymbeline (Ed Harris).” The new adaptation was reportedly “in the vein of Sons of Anarchy and Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet, and is an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug-dealing biker gang set in a corrupt 21st century America.” The trailer has now come online, and it looks like Amereyda has delivered on that promise in an effective and exciting manner. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Anton Yelchin, John Leguizamo, »

While the film does not have a North American distributor or release date, a trailer for writer/director Michael Almereyda's crime drama Cymbeline has surfaced (via Ontd ) and can be watched below.

Dirty cops, drug dealing biker gangs.... Now this is Shakespeare. Ethan Hawke has reteamed with his "Hamlet" director Michael Almereyda for a contemporary take on "Cymbeline" and they are moving fast. Lensing only went down in August, yet a trailer has emerged online already and it certainly throws any preconceived notions of the Bard out the window. Co-starring Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Penn Badgley, Anton Yelchin and Dakota Johnson, this new adaptation takes the tale of Roman and Celtic nobility battling it out and takes it to the streets. With explosions, machine guns and lots of people looking pretty grimy, we'd wager it's probably the most exciting treatment the otherwise less celebrated "Cymbeline" has ever gotten. No release date or even U.S. distributor yet for this one, though it has sold in numerous territories worldwide. Watch below. [Ontd] »

Though it was only shot recently, director Michael Almereyda has already assembled a promo for his take on William Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, which takes the lesser-known play and gives it an update that appears to blend the modern stylings of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet and the grittier edges of Sons Of Anarchy for a violent crime drama. The first trailer has now emerged online. Ethan Hawke, Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Anton Yelchin, Dakota Johnson, Penn Badgley, John Leguizamo and Delroy Lindo star in a labyrinthine romance which on the page includes deception, disguises, cross-dressing and supernatural intervention. We don’t see much evidence of the spookier elements, but there are a lot of guns and cars on display, plus the cast giving it their best Bard. The setting this time is among dirty cops and drug-dealing bikers in a crime-ridden modern-day America.Johnson plays Imogen, who disobeys her father »
Best known for kick-starting careers of up-and-coming filmmakers, Park City still makes room for first time directors pushing north of a ripe old age north of 50. Writer of unknown entities America So Beautiful (2001) and Circle of Eight (2009), Brian Horiuchi’s (shot in Detroit of 2012) Parts Per Billion has got a Sundance parka friendly cast (comprised of Teresa Palmer, Penn Badgley, Josh Hartnett, Alexis Bledel, Rosario Dawson with legends Frank Langella and Gena Rowlands). This is surely in completion stages.
Gist: The story of three couples dealing with a reality-shaking event that threatens to tear them apart. Inspired and sometimes blinded by their love, Len (Josh Hartnett), Mia (Rosario Dawson), Andy (Frank Langella), Esther (Gena Rowlands), Anna (Teresa Palmer) and Erik (Penn Badgley) are as flawed and beautiful as any of the billions who are facing this human-made biological disaster.

After learning that Ben Affleck would be playing Batman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel – still known only as Batman Vs. Superman – perhaps the piece of news which has proven as divisive was the report that Batman’s former sidekick Dick Grayson – who in the comic books adopted the identity of Nightwing after outgrowing that of Robin – would somehow tie into the plot of the next film.
While we here at Screen Rant had some suggestions on who could play the role, Girls star Adam Driver was thought to be the front-runner, while other actors reportedly in consideration were Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl) and Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being A Wallflower). Warner Bros. ...

"No. Not that I know of, no. If you find out, let me know, then I'll know. That's like intensely flattering as you can imagine. I mean, it's Batman and Superman, who doesn't want to be involved in something not only of that scale but of who those characters are. That's an incredible world to be able to be in for a bit. Like who wouldn't want to do that?"
Shortly after the initial report, which revealed that the studio was searching for a "young John Hawkes type" of actor, it was also rumored that Penn Badgley and Ezra Miller are in contention for the role as well.
Although Nightwing a.k.a. Dick Grayson hasn't been officially confirmed to appear in the sequel, »
Earlier this month, it was reported that Adam Driver ("Girls"), Penn Badgley ("Gossip Girls") and Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin) are all in talks to play Dick Grayson (aka Robin/Nightwing) in the upcoming "Batman vs Superman." Driver has been the frontrunner, but even thought filming is set to begin soon, the actor just revealed that there's no truth to the casting news. "No. Not that I know of, no," he said. "If you find out, let me know, then I'll know." The actor went on to say that he's excited just to be mentioned for the role. "That's intensely flattering as you can imagine," he explained. "I mean, it's Batman and Superman, who doesn't want to be involved in something not only of that scale but of who those characters are?" »
A couple of weeks back it was reported that Girls star Adam Driver is the front-runner for the role of Dick Grayson in Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman, but according to the actor himself, it's just the latest in a long line of unsubstantiated rumours about the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.
"No. Not that I know of, no. If you find out, let me know, then I'll know," Driver told Collider, when asked if there was any truth to the report during an interview for his latest film Inside Llewyn Davis. "That's like intensely flattering as you can imagine. I mean, it's Batman and Superman, who doesn't want to be involved in something not only of that scale but of who those characters are. That's an incredible world to be able to be in for a bit. Like who wouldn't want to do that?"

Aside from the announcement that Ben Affleck is set to don the cape and cowl as The Dark Knight, we'd had little in the way of official news from Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman, and instead we've had to trawl through endless rumour and speculation, much of which has centred around the casting of Lex Luthor.
First up came word that Mark Strong was set to swap Green Lantern's Sinestro for the role of the billionaire industrialist and criminal genius before the notoriously unreliable CosmicBookNews shattered what little rep it had left by stating categorically that Bryan Cranston was 100% nailed on in the role as part of a six-film deal with Warner Bros. for the DC Cinematic Universe, and that everything would be confirmed following the season finale of Breaking Bad some six weeks ago.
Since then, attention has turned to the possible inclusion of Wonder Woman, »

There has been a lot of talk lately about the involvement of Wonder Woman and Nightwing in Batman Vs. Superman. Olga Kurylenko, Gal Gadot and Elodie Yung are reportedly in contention for Wonder Woman, with Adam Driver, Penn Badgley and Ezra Miller up for the Nightwing role, although neither character has been officially confirmed to be in the sequel.
Another character still yet to be cast is the villainous Lex Luthor, whose involvement was confirmed by director Zack Snyder during last weekend's online fan event. A new report has surfaced, indicating that Lost star Terry O'Quinn is on the short list of contenders to play Superman's bald nemesis.
It isn't known who else is on the studio's list. Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston was once rumored to be a front runner for the villain, although the actor shot down those rumors in September. Mark Strong was also rumored to be a contender this June, »
On Friday it was revealed by The Wrap that Girls star Adam Driver is front-runner for the role of Dick Grayson / Nightwing in Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman, with the site suggesting that "at least two other actors may in the mix".
Well, we might now know the identity of two of those names, although unlike the Adam Driver report, this one comes from a unproven source, so should be considered a rumour at this point. Anyway, according to Superhero Movie News, there are six names on the shortlist, with Adam Driver allegedly joined by Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl, Greetings from Tim Buckley) and Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin, The Perks of Being a Wallflower).
