[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Movies On Demand. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and past winners On Demand. Today's selection is 'Gone Girl." This interview originally ran in October.] If you were one of the many who didn't know Rosamund Pike by name last year, chances are you probably do now. As the titular "Gone Girl" in David Fincher's chilling adaptation of Gillian Flynn's hit novel (Flynn also penned the script), Pike has been everywhere promoting the film and wowing everyone who made the thriller the top film of the weekend's box office in the Us. The 35-year-old Brit made her onscreen debut as a Bond girl in 2002's "Die Another Day," and has since gone on to appear in a number of high profile films including Joe Wright's "Pride & Prejudice," "Wrath of the Titans" and the Tom Cruise vehicle "Jack Reacher." Despite all this activity, a plum leading role has evaded the »

Hugh Jackman is set to mentor Taron Egerton in an upcoming movie about Olympic skier Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards that will be produced by Egerton’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service” director Matthew Vaughn, TheWrap has learned.

Let's all make the silly pun together: that's right in the heart of the Oscar season. The studio has a couple of options to play with on the prestige side next year. There's Joe Wright's "Pan" in the summer. There's Scott Cooper's Whitey Bulger biopic "Black Mass," though that's lingering in a weird September corridor at the moment.

While we're waiting to see what Hugh Jackman does as the pirate villain of Neverland in this summer's release of Joe Wright's Pan, it looks like he'll take a break from fantasy and comic book blockbusters for an Olympic skiing drama. Baz Bamigboye, the master scooper of James Bond news, has word that Jackman will star in an untitled film about Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, an Olympic ski jumper who competed in the 1988 Winter Games in Calgary, and achieved sports glory despite coming in dead last in his two events. Jackman will play Chuck Berghorn, a ski expert from Lake Placid who helped Edwards train for the games. In addition, young Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton is taking the role of the Oympian himself.
