Daniel Bruhl And Rosamund Pike Are Circling Entebbe

29 July 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A new thriller is on its way from screenwriter Gregory Burke (’71) and director Jose Padilha (Robocop), based on the real life hostage situation that unfolded at Entebbe International Airport in Uganda in 1976 – and Daniel Bruhl and Rosamund Pike are in talks to star. Entebbe will see the actors play two of four hijackers who took control of a plane full of passengers, and created a week-long ground siege that was ended by Israeli Commandoes.

The Air France flight in question was travelling from Tel Aviv to Paris when it was seized by two people fighting for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, as well as two German hijackers from the Revolutionary Cells. After a brief re-fuelling stop in Libya, the hijackers forced the plane to land at Entebbe Airport, as the Ugandan Government was supportive of their action. Approximately half the hostages were released, and the rest were transferred to airport buildings. »

Newswire: Hostiles to host a 3:10 To Yuma reunion with Ben Foster and Christian Bale

28 July 2016 10:23 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Empire reports that Ben Foster has joined Christian Bale in Scott Cooper’s presumably brutal Western Hostiles. Foster and Bale previously worked together on James Mangold’s 3:10 To Yuma, and they’re saddling up again for a Western where Bale plays a Native American-hating soldier whose last assignment before retirement is escorting an ailing Cheyenne chief back to his Montana reservation.

Of course, during the course of the journey, the duo must overcome the challenging landscape and hostile Comanche tribes, and Bale’s character must come to respect the chief. But since Cooper previously directed hard-knock films like Out Of The Furnace (which also starred Bale) and Black Mass, don’t expect things to feel very warm and fuzzy. Rosamund Pike will play a widow the party encounters during their journey, and although there’s potential for a love story between her and Bale’s character, everything will ...

Actresses We Love & the Festivals They Are Going To

Murtada here. It’s the week of fall film festivals announcements. We just heard that The Bening is going to New York. Lupita Nyong'o and Rosamund Pike are going to both London and Toronto. Let’s check in with a few others who are going to Venice, Toronto and possibly Telluride (Telluride doesn’t announce its program until its first day but if a film is announced as a Canadian Premiere at Tiff, and it hasn’t appeared at Sundance, it’s assumed to be Telluride bound).

Jessica Chastain in Talks for ‘The Division,’ Oprah Winfrey Reteams with Ava DuVernay, & More

28 July 2016 8:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With the hopeful success of Michael Fassbender jumping off buildings, Ubisoft is gearing up for an adaptation of another one of their video games titled The Division, which already stars Jake Gyllenhaal. Now, THR reports Jessica Chastain may join the Nightcrawler star in the dystopian action thriller set in New York City after a smallpox outbreak leaves the world torn. Hollywood has long-since tried to bring video games to the big screen, usually with muddled results. Star caliber of this rate is a good starting point, but who is set to helm and pen the film will be the next test to see how serious Ubisoft is to make this work. Chastain was most recently seen in The Huntsman: Winter’s War, and she’s slated for six films over the next year. Gyllenhaal is also producing the film with Gerard Guillemot of Ubisoft.

27 July 2016 1:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Scott Cooper’s Western pic Hostiles has officially entered production – but not before Ben Foster can join the starry cast.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Foster – best known for roles in The Finest Hours and Duncan Jones’ fantasy epic Warcraft: The Beginning – is bound for the frontier alongside Christian Bale and Gone Girl‘s Rosamund Pike.

Rooted in 1892, Cooper’s follow-up to Black Mass chronicles the remarkable tale of legendary Army Capt. Joseph J. Blocker, who defies orders and common sense in order to “escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from an isolated Army outpost in New Mexico to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Pike) whose family was murdered on the plains.”

No word yet on what role Foster has nabbed, but we do understand the remainder of the casting docket features Wes Studi, »

Scott Cooper Western Hostiles Adds Interstellar Star Timothee Chalamet

21 July 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hostiles, the Western drama that’s coming by way of Black Mass director Scott Cooper, has recruited Timothee Chalamet of Interstellar fame.

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, confirming that Chalamet now joins a cast that boasts Christian Bale – reuniting with Cooper after Out of the Furnance – Rosamund PikeJesse Plemons and Adam Beach, who will soon be rubbing shoulders with the remainder of Task Force X in next month’s Suicide Squad.

Chalamet, meanwhile, will assume the role of Private Philippe DeJardin, a member of the military stationed at an outpost in New Mexico.
