The plot is based on Patricia Highsmith's novel The Blunderer, centering on a successful man (Patrick Wilson) whose life begins to come apart when his wife (Jessica Biel) is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. He keeps making mistake after mistake as his once-perfect life keeps spiraling out of control. No details were given for Eddie Marsan's character.

The Sherlock co-creator and actor will star as Captain Mainwaring's colonel-in-chief in the new version, Radio Times reports.
He promised fans of the original that the remake is "charming" and stays faithful to the classic BBC sitcom.
"I was genuinely sceptical - as I think many people will be - but the script really loves the original," he said.
"It's charming and quite moving at times. People love the original and want to honour it but it has to be its own thing as well. So far I'm having a great time."

Here’s one we’re particularly happy about here at DoG Towers – Detectorists will definitely be returning for a second series.
The metal-detecting comedy only premiered last month, so this quick turnaround suggests heaps of BBC confidence to us.
“I couldn’t be happier with how Detectorists has gone down and the response it has got from audiences,” said Crook. “The opportunity to meet these characters again and tell some more of their stories is very exciting.”
We asked Den Of Geek’s writers to recommend brilliant comedy shows that deserve to have more of a fuss made about them. Here they are...
Banging a drum about stuff we love is more or less our remit on Den Of Geek - hence what many readers have started referring to as the ‘inexplicably regular' appearance of Statham, squirrels and Harold Bishop from Neighbours on these pages.
To that end then, we asked our writers which comedy shows (past and present, UK or otherwise, on TV, radio, or online…) deserved more praise, and here are the ones they chose. You might already like them too, or you might discover something new to dig out and enjoy. That’s the fun of it.
Please note that this list isn’t ranked in any order, nor is it exhaustive. It’s compiled from the opinions of a group of different people, »
Writer & Director: Mackenzie Crook
Running Time: 180 mins
Mackenzie Crook is known worldwide for his supporting roles as bizarre characters in The Office and Pirates Of The Caribbean. But this year he created a quiet revolution for himself with Detectorists, a low key and well-received comedy drama which aired on BBC Four. The series is about to come out on DVD, so how does this old school series fare in the world of wall to wall sex/violence and boxset bingeing? The answer is surprisingly well.
The premise is simple and no nonsense. Crook plays Andy, who spends his days doing odd jobs whilst indulging his true passion of waving a metal detector over clumps of grass and dirt. Roaming the fields with his best friend Lance, he has a reasonably contented existence with Becky, »

The series follows two friends and metal detecting enthusiasts Andy (Crook) and Lance (Jones), as they dream of finding a priceless Saxon hoard.
Writer and director Crook said: "I couldn't be happier with how Detectorists has gone down and the response it has got from audiences. The opportunity to meet these characters again and tell some more of their stories is very exciting."
BBC Four editor Cassian Harrison said: "I'm so pleased that we're going to be able to bring the Detectorists back - it was a perfect slice of BBC Four comedy, beautifully written and observed, wry and movingly performed, with real depth to its entrancing world. »
Arrow: Sky1, 8pm
The third season of Sky1's superhero smash continues tonight, as the hunt for Sara's killer begins in earnest.
Simon Lacroix - the hitman Komodo - becomes Oliver's chief suspect, but is there more to The Canary's murder than our hero suspects?
Series two of BBC Two's moody and magnificent period thriller draws to a close as events come to a head at the Epsom Derby.
The Great Fire: ITV, 9pm
“I hate the word gentle” Mackenzie Crook tells us, “it just sounds like unfunny.” Reviews of The Detectorists, a new BBC Four comedy about a pair of metal-detecting enthusiasts written and directed by Crook, have relied heavily on the g-word.
It’s understandable in many ways. Crook’s series is difficult to pigeonhole. It rolls along the English countryside telling a low-key story about Andy and Lance’s preoccupation with searching for ancient objects - a search more likely to bring up 1980s ring-pulls than a hoard of Saxon gold. It’s no gag-fest, but it’s certainly not unfunny. The Detectorists’ sense of humour is wry, bathetic, and steeped in very British references. Where else would you find a hymn to William G. Stewart’s tenure »
A couple of month ago it was rumored that Peggy Carter would have a cameo role in Marvel's Ant-Man, along with a few other characters that you can read about here. It has now been confirmed that Carter will indeed play a part in the movie, and it comes from a post at Project Casting, who says that casting directors are looking for a stand-in for actress Hayley Atwell. Here's the description that was released for the Ant-Man casting:
Casting directors are looking for an actor to work as a stand-in for the actor Haley [sic] Atwell. Haley Attwell [sic] is 31, 5’7 and 112 pounds. She is best known for her work in stage productions such as A View from the Bridge, and in films such as Cassandra’s Dream, The Duchess, The Pillars of the Earth, and Captain America: The First Avenger. In addition, casting directors are looking for a body double that meets certain requirements. »

Back in August, we reported a rumor that Marvel's Ant-Man may include certain characters from Captain America: The First Avenger, including Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter, Dominic Cooper's Howard Stark, Toby Jones' Armin Zola, and a younger version of Alexander Pierce, a character played by Robert Redford in this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While the other characters have not been confirmed yet, a new casting notice reveals that Hayley Atwell has joined the Ant-Man cast.
Take a look at the casting call below, which is seeking actresses to play Hayley Atwell's stand-in.
"Casting directors are looking for an actor to work as a stand-in for the actor Hayley Atwell'. Hayley Atwell is 31, 5'7 and 112 pounds.

During Marvel’s bombshell press event, in which studio head Kevin Feige unveiled massive plans for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe including Black Panther and Inhumans, one project that was only fleetingly acknowledged was next year’s Ant-Man. Helmer Edgar Wright’s conspicuous and controversial exit from the film gave it some unfortunate bad press off the bat, and replacement Peyton Reed hasn’t exactly instilled confidence in a fanbase that has come to expect great things from every Marvel movie. However, one recent Ant-Man scoop should give Marvel aficionados another reason to look forward to the film – it’s been revealed that Hayley Atwell will be reprising the role of Peggy Carter in the flick.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Toby Jones and Rhys Ifans, watch the trailer for director Susanne Bier’s film Serena. The movie played at the London Film Festival in early October. Guy Lodge (Variety) says in his review the film is, “a compellingly problematic anti-romance.”
North Carolina mountains at the end of the 1920s – George (Bradley Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Jennifer Lawrence), love-struck newly-weds, begin to build a timber empire. Serena soon proves herself to be equal to any man: overseeing loggers, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man’s life in the wilderness. With power and influence now in their hands, the Pembertons refuse to let anyone stand in the way of their inflated love and ambitions. However, once Serena discovers George’s hidden past and faces an unchangeable fate of her own, the Pemberton’s passionate marriage begins to unravel leading toward a dramatic reckoning.

ennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper show off their sizzling on-screen chemistry in a new trailer for their upcoming movie “Serena,” but it may not be enough to save the film from critics, who so far have massacred it. Based on a novel by Ron Rash, the film is about a Depression-era couple who carve out an empire in the North Carolina wilderness only to see it threatened with collapse. It also stars Rhys Ifans, Sean Harris, Toby Jones, Sam Reid and David Dencik. ...Read More »

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are reuniting for the long-delayed period piece "Serena" from director Susanne Bier ("After the Wedding," "Things We Lost in the Fire"). The film's newest trailer features the two stars all dolled up in sumptuous period duds for some romance, mystery and tragedy amid some breathtaking scenery captured by ace D.P. Morten Søborg (who's worked with Bier before, as well as Nicholas Winding Refn). Based on Ron Rash's novel, "Serena" takes place in Depression-racked North Carolina, where George Pemberton (Cooper) struggles to maintain his burgeoning timber empire, while his strong-willed young wife, Serena (Lawrence), may be taking their domestic -- and professional --partnership too far. Watch the new trailer here: Bier has reportedly been tinkering with the film since it wrapped principal photography in early 2012, and it had a tough time landing a distributor despite its A-list stars (it also stars Rhys Ifans, Sean Harris, »

Following the international trailer that debuted last month, Magnolia Pictures has released two domestic trailers for Serena, the third feature collaboration of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper following Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.
The story centers on Serena (Jennifer Lawrence) and George Pemberton (Bradley Cooper), who build their own timber empire from the ground up at the end of the 1920s. Serena soon proves herself to be equal to any man: overseeing loggers, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man's life in the wilderness. With power and influence now in their hands, the Pembertons refuse to let anyone stand in the way of their inflated love and ambitions. However, once Serena discovers George's hidden past and faces an unchangeable fate of her own, the Pemberton's passionate marriage begins to unravel leading toward a dramatic reckoning.
Magnolia Pictures has released the official Us trailer for director Suzanne Bier’s drama Serena. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, which seems like a slam dunk except for the fact that the film was shot before Silver Linings Playbook and has been sitting on the shelf ever since. Apparently it’s just not that great as distributors refused to acquire the film for quite some time, but this trailer certainly makes the movie look at least interesting in a go-for-broke kind of way. Lawrence and Cooper play 1920s newlyweds who begin to build a timber empire, but their passion becomes hindered as a hidden past is discovered and Lawrence’s character decides to take fate into her own hands. Watch the new Serena trailer after the jump. The film also stars Toby Jones and Rhys Ifans, and will be released on iTunes and VOD on February 26, 2015 and »
