Bryan Cranston Eyes 'The Great Wall' Alongside Matt Damon

2 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is in early talks to join the cast of Legendary East's The Great Wall, just two days after we reported that Matt Damon is also circling the project.

The movie has been in the works for several years, with Edward Zwick once set to direct and Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker set to star. The project fell apart after Edward Zwick dropped out in September 2012, but it was revitalized once again in March when Chinese filmmaker Yimou Zhang signed on to direct.

No details have been given for Matt Damon and Bryan Cranston's characters. The plot revolves around how The Great Wall of China was built, and how it was constructed not to keep out the invading Mongol forces, but to stop an evil supernatural force from entering China.

Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy, Nightcrawler) wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay, which »

Matt Damon Circling The Great Wall for Hero Director Zhang Yimou

10 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The film has been in development for years with Ed Zwick (Glory) previously set to direct with Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker attached to play the leads.  However, that plan crumbled, and Zwick eventually left to go direct Pawn Sacrifice, so Zhang Yimou (Hero) stepped in.  The story—based on an idea by Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull and World War Z author Max Brooks—explores the mystery of why the Great Wall of China was built.  You think it was to keep out the Mongolian hordes? You fool!  It Is So Much More.  It's also a tourist destination and a way for studios to tap into the lucrative Chinese market. Hit the jump for more. According to Deadline, Damon is interested in working with Zhang, and the two almost got together on Flowers of War, but that film ultimately starred Christian Bale.  Scheduling conflicts might get in the way »

Casting: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Eyes Oliver Stone's Edward Snowden Film, Matt Damon Climbs 'Great Wall' And More

11 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this year it was reported that Oliver Stone would be directing a movie about whistleblower Edward Snowden, and now it appears he may have found his lead. Handsome dude Joseph Gordon-Levitt is being eyed to play the pale, bookish computer nerd in Stone's movie. Nothing is solid yet, but Jgl just wrapped "The Walk" with Robert Zemeckis and presumably has a free schedule ahead, and with Stone eyeing a December start for his movie, it could work out. But it's likely to be a film that will pack a powder keg of controversy, so we'll see if the actor will want to go along for the ride. [Deadline] With another Bourne movie brewing, though its status and when it might shoot are still unknown, Matt Damon is keeping an eye on other gigs. And right now he's taking a look at Zhang Yimou's "The Great Wall." The long-in-the works movie »

Aquaman Was Maybe Superman’s Savior in Man of Steel

21 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Aquaman, or more specifically Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, has been rumored to make at least a cameo appearance in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for what feels like at least a year now. The real story might be Aquaman's role in that film's predecessor and Superman origin story, Man of Steel.

This rumor/report originated from the Meet the Movie Press podcast where The Wrap writer Jeff Sneider decided to share a juicy scoop he scored at the Toronto Film Festival. Apparently Sneider was attending a luncheon and sitting near a table with some Warner Bros. studio executives, and like any good journalist in that situation would do, he eavesdropped every possible word he could.

Apparently these executives were loudly talking about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and referenced a scene in Man of Steel as part of the discussion. They openly »

New Batman V Superman Possible Aquaman Spoiler Teasers Revealed

21 September 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

According to a new report from Comicbookmovie.com, there are some new,possible spoilers circulating about what Aquaman's appearance will be like in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action flick. Their source is Schmoes Know, and they say Aquaman's "going to look like a surfer essentially with tribal tattoos and all that jazz." They're also speculating that Aquaman may have played a part in getting Superman out of the ocean in Man Of Steel flick, stating: " Aquaman sent the whales to save Supes and make sure he was okay, which makes sense considering we never actually see how Supes gets back to shore in the film. He sees the whales and then it cuts to him walking on land, which could mean they were saving the swim back for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." The movie currently stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent »

Matt Damon To Scale "The Great Wall"

20 September 2014 3:39 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Matt Damon is reportedly eyeing a role in Zhang Yimou's upcoming drama "The Great Wall" at Legendary Pictures.

Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro's script deals with British soldiers traveling through 15th century China who witness the construction of the massive edifice that will one day be known as the Great Wall of China. They soon discover that its intended purpose is not to keep out human beings, but terrifying otherworldly creatures.

Attempts have been made to film the project for years now, with little to no success. The closest it came to filming was last year with the likes of Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker attached to star and Ed Zwick to direct. That version fell apart though.

Damon previously was slated to work with Yimou on "The Flowers of War" in a role that eventually went to Christian Bale.

Matt Damon Eyes 'Great Wall' of China Movie

20 September 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bourne 5 isn't the only movie Matt Damon is interested in at the moment. He is also eyeing a role in the upcoming drama The Great Wall, which offers a history lesson on how and why the Great Wall of China was built.

Yimou Zhang is set to direct the film, which Legendary Pictures' Thomas Tull has been attempting to get off the ground for years now. Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro wrote the script.

The Great Wall will reveal the mystery behind why the Great Wall of China was built, and the secrets that are kept under its stone structure.

The Great Wall was set to shoot last year, which would have given Legendary a foothold in the Chinese market. At that time, Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai) was going to direct, with Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker set to star, but the project fell apart.

Matt Damon will next appear in The Martian, »

'Batman v Superman' Set Video Shows Off a Massive Explosion

20 September 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Night shoots continue on the Detroit set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this week, where, for the past couple of evenings, director Zack Snyder has been filming the movie's epic chase sequence featuring the newly designed Batmobile. Today, we get a couple of videos from the set, which show off the pyrotechnic team's handiwork with two very loud explosions. It's not known if this is part of the chase, but that is very likely, and possibly involves the destroyed Gotham City Gas tanker truck seen in previous set photos. We also see manufactured rain and lightening, bringing that true Gotham feel to this DC Comics adventure.

Take a look, courtesy of All Entertainment News and Official Row:

#Rain and flashing lights that could only mean, #Thunder. Now this is starting to look more like #GothamCity. Thanks to @officialrow for sharing.

Will Aquaman Have a Tattooed Surfer Look in 'Batman v Superman'?

19 September 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite his constant denials, many believe that Jason Momoa is still playing Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While this may not be confirmed until the movie is actually in theaters, Schmoes Know claim that the character will have a 'surfer' look in the movie. Which sounds like a no brainer conclusion if Jason Momoa is in fact taking on the role.

About the appearance of Aquaman, they state:

"He's going to look like a surfer essentially with tribal tattoos and all that jazz."

Anyone who has spent a lot of time looking at photos of Jason Momoa in his previous movies will note that most make him cover-up his tribal forearm tattoo. Aquaman's Surfer look actually plays into the actor's own style, and would allow him to finally show off this distracting ink on the big screen.

It is being speculated that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice »

Watch the Batmobile Drive Around Slowly in 13 Minutes of Video from the Set of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

19 September 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Interest in superhero movies is at a fever pitch, so it’s no surprise that a flood of video and photos from the set of the now-filming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will continue to flow so long as cameras are rolling.  Zack Snyder knew exactly what he was doing when he recently unveiled the new Batmobile in full, because Snyder and his crew are currently shooting a number of scenes on the streets of Detroit that feature Bruce Wayne’s new wheels.  A rather lengthy piece of video of the aforementioned Batmobile “in action” has now surfaced, giving fans the opportunity to take a look at the car from a variety of angles.  It’s admittedly a very tame piece of video, and it doesn’t even feature any actual filming, but for those who are curious to see more of the Batmobile’s practical applications it might be of interest. »
