Chris Messina In Talks To Star Opposite Ben Affleck In Live By Night

28 August 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last we reported on Ben Affleck’s adaptation of Live By Night, it had slipped down the actor-director’s pecking order as he focused attention on donning the cape and cowl for Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. But with a November start date fast-approaching, Affleck is ready to assemble his cast and crew for the crime drama, itself an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s (Shutter Island) eponymous novel.

The latest star to enter talks to board the thriller is The Mindy Project and The Newsroom alum, Chris Messina, who could reunite with his Argo co-star should this deal pan out. Rather than a tense hostage situation, Live By Night would have Messina step into the role of Affleck’s literal partner in crime. Then again, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller and Zoe Saldana are all still circling the gestating project, which has suffered setbacks due to Affleck »

Ben Affleck Casts Chris Messina to Play His Friend (Just Like You’ve Always Wanted to Do)

28 August 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Great dancer Chris Messina is in negotiations to star opposite Ben Affleck in Live by Night, a Prohibition-era crime drama written and directed by the future Batting Gentleman. Messina will play Affleck’s best friend Dion Bartolo, which you could totally see. (Can’t you imagine Messina and Affleck roughhousing – Messina under Affleck’s arm, getting noogied real good?) Based on Dennis Lehane’s novel The Given Day, Live by Night’s cast also includes Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller, and Zoe Saldana. All the actors have been considered for their parts for awhile now, but production was delayed while Affleck was being a movie star/superhero. Of course, Messina previously worked with Affleck on Argo, where he showed the director/actor he could pull off period-specific facial hair. »

‘Argo’ Reunion: Chris Messina to Play Ben Affleck’s Partner in Crime in ‘Live By Night’

28 August 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

After working together on “Argo,” Chris Messina is in negotiations to join Ben Affleck again in Warner Bros.’ Prohibition-era crime drama “Live By Night,” TheWrap has learned. Affleck has had his eye on Messina to play his best friend for two years, as TheWrap sent its first inquiry about the potential reunion back in July 2013. Production was delayed in the wake of “Gone Girl” and Affleck’s casting as Batman in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana and Elle Fanning will co-star in the film, which Affleck and his Pearl Street partner Jennifer Todd are producing with. »

Chris Messina to Co-Star With Ben Affleck in ‘Live By Night’

28 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chris Messina is in negotiations to co-star opposite Ben Affleck in Warner Bros.’ crime drama “Live By Night.”

Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller and Zoe Saldana are also in negotiations to star, with Affleck also toplining and producing along with Jennifer Todd through their Pearl Street banner, as well as Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran through their Appian Way banner.

Based on the Dennis Lehane novel, the Prohibition-set drama examines the world of organized crime. Messina will play Affleck’s best friend and partner in crime in the film.

Like Fanning, Miller and Saldana, Messina has been eyed to star for some time, but delays in production due to Affleck’s commitments to “Gone Girl” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” forced the studio to hold off on handing out other offers. Sources say that as cameras are expected to start rolling in November, more offers are expected to be handed out. »

Zachary Quinto talks Star Trek Beyond, says Spock will be paired up with Bones

27 August 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production in full swing on Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond, MTV caught up with star Zachary Quinto to ask his thoughts on new director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6), who has taken over from J.J. Abrams to helm the third instalment in the relaunched feature film series.

“Invariably there’s going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J.J.,” states Quinto. “But Justin has come in with this really interesting and confident energy that’s a little bit more reserved and a little bit quieter, but also very powerful and really sure-handed. He knows exactly what he wants this movie to look like and that’s really exciting.”

Vin Diesel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 return confirmed by director James Gunn.

Director James Gunn has revealed that Vin Diesel will return to the role of Groot for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. Gunn revealed the news on his Facebook page yesterday, which is sure to delight fans of this excellent film series.

So that image above is how we last saw Groot, annoying the heck out of Drax while dancing to the Jackson 5. Gunn is very active on his Facebook page, and was answering a fan’s question, which was pretty directly asking if we would see Diesel as Groot in the next film in the series.

Vin Diesel Returning for 'Guardians 2', But Does He Need To?

26 August 2015 8:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While there were many naysayers who thought that last year's Guardians of the Galaxy would be Marvel's first box office flop, they were dead wrong. Guardians of the Galaxy went on to become one of the biggest hits of 2014, and now the long wait for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 begins, with the studio setting a May 5, 2017 release date for the sequel. While no cast members have been confirmed, most have assumed the the main cast will be returning, but, in case you aren't convinced yet, director James Gunn revealed on his Facebook page today that Vin Diesel is coming back to voice Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

The director confirmed this information when a fan mistakenly asked if Vin Diesel was coming back for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, with some believing that the filmmaker had actually confirmed Gotg 3, before Guardians of the Galaxy 2 even started shooting. It was »

Vin Diesel Confirmed For Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

26 August 2015 5:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was probably never really in doubt, but director James Gunn has confirmed that Vin Diesel will return to give life to monosyllabic sentient tree alien Groot in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy sequel, which is currently titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

To be fair, there was a small chance Groot wouldn’t return for Volume 2 – or at least, not the same Groot from the first film. Towards the end, the noble creature sacrifices himself to save his friends in that tear-jerking (shut up… you know you cried too!) “we are Groot” scene. His pal Rocket saves a sapling though, and just before the credits rolled, we see a bouncing baby Groot dancing to the Jackson 5.

So, although it was always fairly obvious he’d return, there was also the possibility it’d be a younger version, voiced by a different actor… »

Watch 'Star Trek Beyond' Cast's Salute to Leonard Nimoy, Win a Walk-On Role

26 August 2015 3:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

He lived long and he prospered, and Leonard Nimoy is being honored by the cast of the upcoming movie "Star Trek Beyond."

Zachary Quinto, the "new" Spock, narrated a new Omaze video for the last week of the cast's charity campaign, with the winner landing a role as an extra in "Beyond." The lucky fan will be randomly chosen from the pool of donors, and funds will be split among nine organizations chosen by cast members, including St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

Leonard Nimoy was "passionate about" St. Jude's, Zachary noted in the tribute video, which honors the late star and asks for donations in his name:

Through his legendary portrayal of Spock, he influenced countless scientists and artists, myself and the rest of the cast included. It was an honor and a privilege to know him and to call him a friend. Leonard's love for the human spirit showed in everything he did. »

Star Trek Beyond Set Video Features An Unrecognizable Sofia Boutella

20 August 2015 5:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Thanks to a very revealing new video from the Vancouver set of Star Trek Beyond, we finally have our first look at some of the main characters in action. The footage features James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), Pavel Chekov (Anton Yelchin), Montgomery Scott (Simon Pegg) and – most interestingly – the mysterious alien character played by Kingsman: The Secret Service actress Sofia Boutella.

Though Scotty is wearing classic Starfleet gear, both Chekov and Kirk are dressed in slightly more militaristic new uniforms. Is this just for a mission, or have they been assigned to another crew for some reason?

As for Boutella’s character, we still don’t know a single thing about her (aside from the fact that she seems to be a good guy), but you may notice she does resemble those aliens that Kirk and McCoy were running from at the beginning of Star Trek Into Darkness.

Star Trek Beyond, the third chapter in Paramount's rebooted Star Trek series, is continuing to shoot in Vancouver under the direction of Justin Lin. We got an early look at the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise as it sets forth on its 5 year mission in a series of Omaze videos. They didn't really show us anything substantial from the production. That changes today. Now, we actually get to see some of the cast in their official new Star Fleet uniforms. This latest set video, which arrives courtesy of Screen Crush, also has our first look at new cast member Sofia Boutella.

The Star Trek Beyond crew were shooting an outdoor scene that finds Sofia Boutella's as yet-unnamed alien crawling out of a hatch. She has white skin and unique black markings on her face. She is soon joined by Chris Pine's Captain Kirk, who has a »
