Rodriguez's breakout role in The CW's Jane the Virgin »
Emma Jensen’s screenplay centers on the love affair between the charismatic poet Percy Shelley and the brilliant 18-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin. That tumultuous relationship ultimately inspired her to write “Frankenstein.”
Powley will portray Claire Clairmont, Mary’s stepsister who has a hunger for attention and complicates Mary and Percy’s relationship when she moves in with them.
“Bel is fearless and immensely talented,” Baer said. “She immediately understood Claire – a complicated young woman who struggled in the shadow of her stepsister.”

When you imagine growing up in Texas, there’s the idealized Terrence Malick version of things, as seen in “The Tree of Life,” and there’s the casual, down-to-earth sort captured by Richard Linklater in such pics as “Dazed and Confused” and “Boyhood.” But for the truest depiction of how it feels to come of age in the Lone Star state, look no farther than Micah Magee’s “Petting Zoo,” a piercingly authentic, diamond-in-the-rough debut inspired by its director’s San Antonio upbringing, shaped by her personal experience with unplanned pregnancy and rendered poignant by whatever distance she’s since managed to put between herself and those teenage memories. Following screenings in Berlin and SXSW, Magee’s all-American indie is well poised for acquisition and further festival interest on both sides of the Atlantic — no small feat for a starless first feature.

Universal Pictures has continued to push forward with its prequel tale to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman by adding three actors into the mix to form part of the new dwarfs set to feature in The Huntsman.
Similarly to the original film, three British actors have been cast in the roles alongside the returning Nick Frost as Nion. Gavin & Stacey stars Rob Brydon and Sheridan Smith have joined the cast, as has Alexandra Roach who co-starred in 2013’s One Chance.
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan makes his directorial debut with the film, which has Chris Hemsworth (The Hunstman) and Charlize Theron (Ravenna) reprising their roles from the original, joined by Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) and Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year).

Here are the three new faces.
There's no Kristen Stewart this time, given that the film is set »
As much as there are certain actors I really enjoy watching on-screen, I also enjoy seeing unfamiliar faces and discovering new talents, whether in leading or supporting roles, so I'm quite happy to hear the relatively-unknown Gina Rodriguez is in talks to co-star alongside Mark Wahlberg in Peter Berg's Deepwater Horizon, according to The Wrap. Rodriguez took home a Golden Globe earlier this year for her role in "Jane the Virgin", a show I've briefly read about but never seen. Other than that, her oeuvre consists primarily of roles in independent films and shorts, as well as non-recurring roles in other television shows, so I'm interested to see what qualities she'll bring to the project, though it'll be quite some time before we see the film given its September 30, 2016 release date. As for other actresses vying for the role, Kristen Stewart was closest to hopping aboard before Rodriguez took the driver's seat, »

The true story tale deals with the 2010 Bp oil rig explosion that killed eleven crew members and resulted in the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history. Wahlberg plays Mike Williams, an electrician on the rig.
Rodriguez will play the female lead, Andrea Fleytas, who was overseeing the oil rig's navigation machinery when she noticed that no one had issued a distress signal. After she tried to contact the Coast Guard, she was reprimanded for her actions.
Rodriguez reportedly beat out Kristen Stewart for the coveted role in the film which Peter Berg is directing from a screenplay by Matthew Michael Carnahan. The film is expected to go into production relatively soon to meet its September 2016 release date. »

Less than a month after actor Nick Frost signed on to reprise his Snow White and the Huntsman dwarf role Nion in Universal Pictures' sequel The Huntsman, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith have signed on to play three new dwarfs. We reported in January that the sequel will only feature two dwarfs, but it seems Universal has reconsidered that stance. No details were given regarding these new characters, but this is the first time female dwarfs are being introduced into the fairy tale storyline.
In Snow White and the Huntsman, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the seven dwarfs. Our report from January revealed that Toby Jones could not come to terms with the studio to reprise his role, while Eddie Marsan had scheduling complications with the Showtime series Ray Donovan. It isn't known why the others »
Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez is in talks to star alongside Mark Wahlberg in Deepwater Horizon for Lionsgate. If a deal is finalized, The Wrap reveals she will play the female lead, Andrea Fleytas. The project is based on the true story of the 2010 Bp oil rig explosion that killed 11 crew members and resulted in the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history.
Mark Wahlberg is starring as Mike Williams, an electrician on the oil rig. Gina Rodriguez's Andrea Fleytas was overseeing the oil rig's navigation machinery when she noticed that no one had issued a distress signal. After she tried to contact the Coast Guard, she was reprimanded for her actions. Gina Rodriguez beat out Kristen Stewart for the coveted role.
Lionsgate and Participant are currently courting Jane The Virgin star Gina Rodriguez for a leading role in Deepwater Horizon. Directed by Peter Berg (Lone Survivor), the film has Mark Walhberg attached to star in a disaster actioner based on the events surrounding the Bp oil spill in 2010.
The cataclysmic explosion took place in the Gulf of Mexico aboard the oil rig Deepwater Horizon, which led to the world’s largest reported oil spillage that took the lives of many riggers caught on deck, and continued to seep oil into the ocean for three months.
The aforementioned studios consolidated forces to snare the rights back in 2011 to a New York Times article detailing the disaster. “Deepwater Horizon’s Final Hour,” written by David Barstow, David Rohde and Stephanie Saul has since been adapted into a screenplay by Berg’s long-time collaborator Matthew Michael Carnahan.

The prequel was originally supposed to be directed by Frank Darabont, but he quit the project in January.
Watch the Snow White and the Huntsman »
Universal's sequel to Snow White and the Hunstman will simply be titled The Huntsman as it sets out to tell a prequel story centered on the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and Ravenna's (Charlize Theron) lives before the arrival of Kristen Stewart's Snow White. We already knew Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain had joined the cast and Nick Frost was expected to return as Nion, one of the dwarves featured in the first film. Now we learn of three new names joining the cast those being Rob Brydon (Trip to Italy), Alexandra Roach (Cuban Fury) and Sheridan Smith (Hysteria) all as dwarves alongside Frost. Rumors as far as the plot are concerned suggest Chastain will be playing a character similar to the Hunstman, her specialty being with a bow, and they've teamed in an effort to obtain a "magical MacGuffin" before Emily Blunt's evil, frosty Queen can get her hands on it. »
