Warcraft may have had its release date pushed back to 2016 to avoid going up against Disney's Star Wars: Episode VII, but the video game adaptation looks to be picking up the pace in terms of casting, with Universal revealing that Ben Foster (Lone Survivor), Rob Kazinsky (True Blood) and Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans) have signed on for as-yet-unrevealed roles, while Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) is in final negotiations.
The four actors join the previously announced Travis Fimmel (Vikings) and Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) in the cast of Warcraft, which is being directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code). Other actors who have been linked to parts in the fantasy epic include Colin Farrell (Total Recall), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness), Paul Dano (Prisoners) and Anson Mount (Straw Dogs).
Warcraft is set for release on March 11th 2016. »

SAG Award nominations will be announced next week, and among the films likely that will no doubt be recognized are “August: Osage County,” “Before Midnight” and “Saving Mr. Banks.” The films have also been praised for their scripts, with WGA noms unveiled Jan 3. While these pics are deserving of attention in both realms, the contributions of the directors are mysteriously shortchanged.
There is a special place in the cinema pantheon for directors who don’t make a fuss: No auteur flourishes, no startling camera angles. They’re just there to serve the material and they do it so well, their work is almost invisible. Don’t critics and industry folks realize how hard that is?
John Wells (“Osage”), Richard Linklater (“Midnight”) and John Lee Hancock (“Mr. Banks”), pictured left to right, worked with a strong cast and screenplay, so some people may think they just pointed their cameras and let it happen. »

In the future, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford will be regarded as a classic. It’s a haunting epic packed with beauty and brutality thanks to Roger Deakins‘s finest cinematography, Brad Pitt‘s best performance to date, and a narrative that conforms to zero biopic conventions. However, at the time of its release writer/director Andrew Dominik‘s adaptation was a box office dud, grossing less than $4m across the globe on a $36m budget. A part of the problem was that it wasn’t the Jesse James movie Warner Bros. wanted. They were thinking Unforgiven, not two and a half hours of obsession and regret. Heck, they probably would’ve preferred American Outlaws, the other recent financial (and creative) misfire starring Colin Farrell as a plucky Jesse James. To a degree, that’s fair on the studio’s part: wanting the most commercial movie possible from what’s now considered »

“Saving Mr. Banks” screenwriter Kelly Marcel was a “Mary Poppins” pro as a kid compared to the pic’s co-star Colin Farrell. “It was definitely the film we watched every Christmas,” said Marcel at a Q&A following a screening of Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks” Wednesday at the ArcLight as part of the Variety Screening Series.
Farrell had a different childhood movie in mind.
“I’m sure I’d been shown (‘Mary Poppins’) one Christmas when I was way into single digits,” said Farrell. But “I was more of a ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ boy. I was more interested in fizzy lifting drinks and Everlasting Gobstoppers than I was in spoonfuls of sugar.” But his involvement in the tale of “Poppins” author P.L. Travers and her run-ins with Walt Disney juxtaposed with a look at her childhood brought him closer to the “Poppins” musical. “I do feel an affinity for it now, »

Who doesn’t love a juicy biopic? It’s delicious getting a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of luminaries — but only when the casting works. The actor doesn’t even have to look exactly like the icon being portrayed, as long as the performance is genius, we’re all in (hello, Ali and Mommie Dearest). But more often than not, biopic casting goes way off the rails. Lindsay Lohan and her plumped-up lips as Elizabeth Taylor? Travesty! Teenybopper-voiced Jennifer Love Hewitt as the luminous Audrey Hepburn? Unfathomable. Colin Farrell mincing about in blonde highlights as Alexander the Great? We’re giggling just thinking about it.
As we head to the theaters to see Idris Elba in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and eagerly anticipate the biopics of Jimi Hendrix and Elton John, let’s take a look at some of the ones that didn’t hit the mark. »

Legendary Pictures has confirmed a number of new additions to the cast of their forthcoming action-packed film adaptation of multimedia role-playing game World Of Warcraft. Joining the already confirmed Travis Fimmel and Paula Patton in the swords n’ sorcery epic being directed by Moon’s Duncan Jones will be the intense Ben Foster (30 Days Of Night) and Great Brits Robert Kazinsky (Pacific Rim) and Toby Kebbell (Dead Man’S Shoes).
Colin Farrell is still said to be mulling over an offer from the studio for one of the main leads, while Dominic Cooper (next to be seen alongside Samuel L. Jackson in crime-thriller Reasonable Doubt and in next year’s blockbuster Need For Speed) is also considering a deal.

While a handful of actors have been rumored for roles in the upcoming movie, the list of actors officially on board includes Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, and Rob Kazinsky. Dominic Cooper is reportedly in talks for a role as well, but has not signed on yet. There is also no word Colin Farrell, who was previously mentioned as a strong possibility.

Duncan Jones' Warcraft may be delayed to 2016 thanks to J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII taking over the December 2015 spotlight, but that doesn't mean that the movie is doing anything to slow down pre-production. Over the last few months we've heard a few actor names swirling around the video game adaptation and today, according to The Hollywood Reporter, a few more have signed on. The trade's sources tell them that Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell and Robert Kazinsky have all penned deals to star in Warcraft while Dominic Cooper is currently in final stages of negotiations. The group of actors join a cast that already includes Paula Patton, who got some action cred starring in Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, and Travis Fimmel, who has become a rising star in Hollywood thanks to his role on series Vikings. Colin Farrell has also been in talks to »
Universal Pictures and Legendary have revealed the cast for Duncan Jones’ Warcraft today and we must say, it’s not all that impressive. Deals have been made with Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, and Rob Kazinsky, with Dominic Cooper in final stages of negotiations as well.
It’s a cast that’s made up of mostly B-list actors and while it may not be the all-star line-up that most blockbusters boast, there are a few bright spots here.
Ben Foster is one of Hollywood’s most under-appreciated talents and recently did some excellent work in Kill Your Darlings. I’m also a big fan of Dominic Cooper. He showed what he’s capable of in The Devil’s Double and with projects like Need For Speed and Captain America: The Winter Soldier in production, his star will only continue to rise.
As for the rest of the cast, »

Travis Fimmel was mentioned as a front runner for the lead role in October, but an offer wasn't made at the time. We reported in September that Paula Patton was in talks for a role, although her deal only closed today. Other actors such as Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, Anson Mount and Anton Yelchin have previously been mentioned for unspecified roles, although their involvement isn't known at this time.
Duncan Jones is directing from a screenplay that he rewrote, which was originally drafted by Charles Leavitt. Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Alex Gartner and Charles Roven are producing, with shooting scheduled to begin next month in Vancouver.
The project is based on the popular multi-player online roleplaying game (Mporg) which debuted in 1994, set in »
The making of Fast & Furious 7 was happening on an accelerated pace to meet next summer’s July 11 release date, but now the movie has come to a complete stop.
The unexpected and tragic car-crash death of Paul Walker has led Universal Pictures to put a hold on the movie in mid-production. Donna Langley, chairman of universal Pictures, told EW this week, “We have half a movie shot and we are working through it.”
The studio has now decided to call a halt.
“Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul’s immediate family and »

It makes perfect sense that any of the marketing we've seen for "Saving Mr. Banks" so far has focused almost exclusively on the relationship between Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) and P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson), and that makes sense. That is what the film deals with for the most part, but there's another relationship in the film that is, in its way, even more important. Colin Farrell plays Travers Robert Goff, father to Helen Goff, aka Ginty (Annie Rose Buckley), the little girl who eventually grows up and takes the professional pseudonym of P.L. Travers. He is her world, as we see »

So you’re casting a movie, and you want top-tier talent—not just for the leading roles but deep into the lineup. It’s a studio film but not one that features Norse gods or guys in robot suits—so your budget isn’t exactly top tier. In most cases, this would be a time to jump straight to the B list. But in this case, you’re Ronna Kress, and you’re casting a film about the making of one of the most beloved movies of all times, “Mary Poppins.” Put that B list away. “Saving Mr. Banks” features Emma Thompson as novelist and Poppins creator P.L. Travers and Tom Hanks as obscure mid-century studio boss Walt Disney. And those two are just the beginning. “It was a movie made for a price, and that’s always a tough sell,” Kress said. “But we were fortunate enough to attach Tom and Emma, »
