New images from Trumbo featuring Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane and Hellen Mirren

29 July 2015 6:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the news that director Jay Roach’s upcoming biopic Trumbo is set to receive its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, two new images have arrived online featuring Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) as screenwriter Dalton Trumbo alongside Diane Lane (Man of Steel) and Helen Mirren (The Queen)…

The successful career of 1940s screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. Trumbo tells the story of his fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom, which entangled everyone in Hollywood from Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.

Trumbo is set for release in the States on November 6th and in the UK on January 22nd, with a cast that also includes John Goodman, Elle Fanning, Michael Stuhlbarg, Louis C.K. and Alan Tudyk. »

New Look At Bryan Cranston And Helen Mirren In Trumbo

29 July 2015 2:26 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

New Dalton Trumbo biopic, Trumbo, sees Bryan Cranston in the title role as the blacklisted screenwriter  crushed under the wheels of the state in 1940s America. Helen Mirren co-stars as a trash-talking columnist looking to expose any reds lurking under the bed. Any bed and any reds: she was an equal-opportunities smearer. Here’s a first look at Dame Helen’s character in action.Trumbo tells the sorry chapter of American film history when, if you a Hollywood player and not drapped in the Stars and Stripes at all times, you were likely to be hauled up in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee (Huac) committee and grilled about your political allegiances. In the worst cases – like Trumbo’s – professional exile resulted.Joining Cranston on this one is Diane Lane as his wife (pictured), Cleo, with Elle Fanning as his daughter. Michael Stuhlbarg plays Edward G. Robinson and David James Elliott is John Wayne. »

Elle Fanning Is Going To 'All The Bright Places'

27 July 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While his CV is diverse, ranging from episodes of "Enlightened," "The Office," and "American Horror Story" to features like "Cedar Rapids," Miguel Arteta has shown he has a voice for tales of young people. He's helmed the pilot episode of "Freaks & Geeks," guided double Michael Ceras through "Youth In Revolt," and last year experienced "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day."  Now Variety reports he's going to take Elle Fanning to "All The Bright Places." Based on the Ya novel by Jennifer Niven, who will also write the script, the story follows the bond formed between the wide-eyed Violet and the suicidal Theodore, in what sounds like a story where you'll need to keep the Kleenex handy. Here's the book synopsis:  Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops. »

Elle Fanning is getting cozy during her movie nights! Dakota Fanning's sister, 17, was spotted cuddling up with Zalman Band during Cinespia's screening of Hard Day's Night over the weekend. Both put on ear-to-ear grins as they smiled for the camera while sitting comfortably on a blanket. There's nothing like outdoor movies in the summer, is there? Elle looked great, dressed casually in flared jeans and a black off-the-shoulder top. She donned an au naturel-looking face, opting for a mostly makeup-free look. Her new friend also went with a casual look, wearing jeans, a gray T-shirt and zip-up fleece jacket. Band has his arm draped around his gal-pal while she has his hand in hers. So »

Ben Affleck to direct adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s novel ‘Live By Night’

9 July 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As reported today by Variety, Ben Affleck will be directing Live By Night, a project he’s been meaning to work on for the past few years. But with his starring roles in Gone Girl and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s understandable that the actor/director hasn’t had too much time on his hands to work on anything else.

Now with Batman v Superman in post-production, his main focus will be this film, based on the Dennis Lehane crime novel set in the Prohibition era. Affleck, along with directing and producing, will also star in the film alongside Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning, and Sienna Miller.

Many of Lehane’s books have been turned into films (Mystic RiverShutter Island, and as Affleck already did with Gone Baby Gone), so it’s no surprise that Affleck has gone back to adapt the novelist’s work into another »

Ben Affleck Co-Writing Batman Movie with Geoff Johns; Will Direct After Live By Night

9 July 2015 3:53 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It appears as though Ben Affleck will finally get around to his directorial follow-up to Argo this fall, but he’s already lining up his next project after that, and it’s a biggie. While he was inundated with offers after the success of his Best Picture-winning 2012 film, Affleck opted to focus on an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s Prohibition-era crime thriller Live by Night as his next directorial project. He intended to start shooting that in 2013, but the prospect of working with David Fincher on Gone Girl forced him to push filming to 2014. Then he was offered the chance to play Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so that pushed Live by Night even further, and he most recently completed shooting the starring role in Gavin O’Connor’s action drama The Accountant.

Ben Affleck’s Live By Night Adaptation To Step In Front Of The Cameras This November

9 July 2015 1:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Between leading the charge on both sides of the camera for Argo, battling inner demons and a twisted spouse in Gone Girl, and the small matter of donning the cape and cowl for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s small wonder that Ben Affleck’s next directorial outing – an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s Live By Night – has been knocked down the pecking order.

But fret not, for Variety has brought word that Warner Bros. has officially greenlit the project, slating Affleck’s Prohibition-era drama for a November start. According to sources, the award-winning actor had intended to lift the crime tale from the pages of Lehane’s novel shortly after the release of Argo in 2013, but as we alluded to earlier, a couple of things cropped up. And by a couple of things we mean a near-unmissable David Fincher thriller and DC’s titanic comic book showdown. »

Ben Affleck’s ‘Live by Night’ Gets Greenlight, November Start Date (Exclusive)

9 July 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s been three years since Ben Affleck stepped behind the camera to direct his Oscar-winning “Argo,” and it now looks like he’s one step closer to getting back in the director’s chair.

Sources tell Variety that Warner Bros. has given the greenlight to Affleck’s next directing gig, “Live by Night,” with plans to begin production this November.

Affleck has intended to helm the pic, based on Dennis Lehane’s Prohibition-era crime novel, for some time, but starring roles in “Gone Girl” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” in which he will play the Caped Crusader, have delayed the process. Insiders say he is now ready to tackle the venture. The first feature Affleck directed, 2007’s “Gone Baby Gone,” was also based on a Lehane novel.

Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller and Zoe Saldana are still attached to star, with Affleck also toplining and producing along with »

Affleck's "Live By Night" Starts November

9 July 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has reportedly given the green light to Ben Affleck's next directorial effort "Live By Night" with filming to begin this November.

Based on "Gone Baby Gone" author Dennis Lehane's Prohibition-era crime novel, the story follows the son of a prominent Boston police captain who turned his back on his family to enjoy the spoils of being an outlaw

Affleck has intended to direct for some time but his acting commitments to "Gone Girl," "The Accountant" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" have kept him away. Though he has several films in development, none are ready for production and so he's spending the next four months tweaking the script ahead of filming.

Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller and Zoe Saldana are still attached to star in the film which Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Todd and Jennifer Davisson Killoran will produce.
