Sam Raimi Will Direct Bermuda Triangle Thriller Next

16 February 2017 2:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Horror legend Sam Raimi has signed on to direct a new Bermuda Triangle mystery thriller project for Skydance Productions. The thriller is actually one of three separate films currently in development about the mysterious Bermuda Triangle, with one set up at Universal and the other being worked on at Warner Bros. No plot details have been given for any of these projects, with each studio worried about their own takes getting leaked.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the project's plot details are being kept a secret so much that Sam Raimi had to visit the Skydance Productions offices just to read the script. While the story details are being kept under wraps, it was revealed that the script itself was written by the writing team of Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, whose writing credits include The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and the Netflix series Narcos. »

‘Moonlight’ Star Mahershala Ali in Talks to Join Tom Hardy in ‘Triple Frontier’

14 February 2017 12:51 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mahershala Ali, who recently won a SAG award for his role in “Moonlight,” is in talks to join Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum in Paramount’s “Triple Frontier.”

J.C. Chandor is directing from a script by Mark Boal.

Charles Roven and Alex Gartner of Atlas Entertainment are producing. Boal, Kathryn Bigelow, Stephen Jones, Neil Dodson, Anna Gerb will also serve as executive producers.

The film was originally supposed to be writer Boal and director Bigelow’s follow-up to “The Hurt Locker,” with actors including Tom Hanks, Will Smith, and Leonardo DiCaprio at one point showing interest in joining the ensemble. “Triple Frontier” was put on hold when Bigelow and Boal decided to move on to “Zero Dark Thirty, »

Cyborg Will Have A Pivotal Role In Justice League

8 February 2017 9:49 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If there is one outlier in the upcoming Justice League movie, it’d be rather easy to point to Cyborg. Unlike the other members, not very many folks outside of comic fans actually know much about him. Even Aquaman, who is largely seen as a joke for those not in the know, has a much stronger brand recognition than Cyborg. So in recent months, as the DC Extended Universe has slowly seemed to break apart (with Flash undergoing a page one rewrite and The Batman losing director Ben Affleck), it seemed inevitable that the one to suffer could ultimately be Cyborg.

Lrm lead editor Mario-Francisco Robles has been saying for years that even though Cyborg is slated to have his own film, he believes it’ll never actually happen. With even the most recognizable character films having a hard time in development, it seems almost inevitable that Mario’s statement could be proven right. »

Warner Bros, DC, The Batman and its director problem

31 January 2017 10:04 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 1, 2017

Ben Affleck’s the latest in a series of directors to bow out of a DC comic book movie. We take a look at a familiar pattern...

In a ninja-like move worthy of the Caped Crusader himself, Ben Affleck has bowed out of The BatmanAffleck will, of course, still star in the title role and serve as producer, but the standalone Batman movie will now need a new director - leaving the position empty mere months before filming was supposed to commence.

The outlet that broke the story, Variety, adds that Affleck’s decision wasn’t related to the recent performance of Live By Night, the period crime film produced, written, directed and starring Ben Affleck. Rather, Affleck says, “I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. »

20 January 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ragnar may have met his fate on “Vikings,” but History is staying in business with Travis Fimmel, the man who played him.

Fimmel is teaming up with the network to develop a scripted anthology series that tells the stories of Wyatt Earp and other iconic sinners and anti-heroes throughout history. The actor, who brought the idea to the network and A+E Studios, wrote the first episode and will executive produce and star as Wyatt Earp.

The series’ first installment will focus on Earp, from his days in Dodge City and his relationships with Doc Holliday and Bat Masterson, to the real story of what happened during the legendary gunfight at the Ok Corral.

“Travis is a remarkable actor and we’re honored to continue our relationship with him after his recent magnetic performance on ‘Vikings’,” said Arturo Interian, History’s Svp of scripted programming. “Just as Travis brought a completely fresh and unexpected approach to his »

Channing Tatum Closes Deal to Star in ‘Triple Frontier’

11 January 2017 5:50 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After reports surfaced of Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy’s interest in the long-in-development Paramount thriller “Triple Frontier,” it now looks like the two are very close to teaming up.

Sources tell Variety that Tatum has officially closed his deal to star in the South American crime thriller, while Hardy is in final negotiations to finalize his deal.

This marks the biggest step toward the movie getting a greenlight since it was announced that Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal were developing the project in 2009. Bigelow has since left the project as director, and was replaced by J.C. Chandor. Boal is still on as a writer and producer.

Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum Circle ‘Triple Frontier,’ Adam Driver Teams With Sylvester Stallone & More

6 January 2017 4:50 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The Mark Boal-scripted Triple Frontier, once attached to longtime collaborator and director Katherine Bigelow, perhaps as a follow-up to Zero Dark Thirty, appears to finally be materializing after a period of insufferable gestating. According to Deadline, the Paramount-backed thriller set in the “notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge” is currently involved in ongoing talks with Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy.

Replacing Bigelow at the helm is J.C. Chandor (All is Lost, A Most Violent Year) on a project that Tom Hanks, Will Smith, and Johnny Depp all originally circled. Produced by Chandor alongside Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Alex Gartner, nothing’s been made official yet on the Tatum and Hardy front, but the news is much-welcomed progress.

Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy may team up for J.C. Chandor’s Triple Frontier

6 January 2017 7:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

J.C. Chandor’s next movie, Triple Frontier, may see two major stars leading the cast if conversations are successful and deals go through. According to Deadline, Channing Tatum (Hail, Caesar!) and Tom Hardy (Taboo) are circling the project, and Paramount has been interested in getting them on board since last month. 

Triple Frontier takes place in a haven for organized crime where the borders of three countries, Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil, meet. If that description doesn’t immediately grip you, the talented people behind the project should be able to get you more interested. 

Chandor, who is set to helm the film, has yet to have a misfire when it comes to his previous directorial efforts. He came on the scene in 2011 with Margin Call, followed that up two years later with All is Lost and most recently helmed A Most Violent Year. The film’s screenwriter, on the other hand, »

Tom Hardy And Channing Tatum Eyeing J.C. Chandor’s Triple Frontier

5 January 2017 2:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Triple Frontier, the Mark Boal-scripted thriller, has been simmering away in development for a while now, flirting with plenty of big stars but ultimately, not really having much to show for it. If you cast your mind way back, you’ll remember that Katheryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty) was set to direct, with Tom Hanks, Will Smith and Johnny Depp all close to signing on for lead roles.

Unfortunately, that fell apart and Margin Call‘s J.C. Chandor hopped on board alongside producers Charles Roven and Alex Gartner. Now, Paramount is gearing up to cast the pic and Deadline tells us tonight that they’re in talks with Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy for the film, which is set in the “notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge.”

Nothing’s been made official just yet, but the actors are certainly interested »
