Directors: Colin Trevorrow Opens 'Book Of Henry,' Armando Ianucci Tackles 'David Copperfield,' And More

31 March 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Until now, Daniel Espinosa has generally been known for gritty genre fare ("Snabba Cash," "Safe House," the upcoming "Child 44"), but for his next jaunt he's boldly going to outer space. The director is in talks to helm "Morningstar" for Warner Bros. The plot details of the script by David Birke ("Gacy," "13 Sins") are being kept under wraps, but it is said to have the vibe of a Cold War thriller and involve "world building." So basically, it sounds like it's an opportunity for Espinosa to expand the wheelhouse he's already in. [The Wrap] While yet another take on "David Copperfield" hardly sounds exciting, our interest is certainly piqued with Armando Ianucci ("Veep," "The Thick Of It") behind the camera. He'll helm a new take on the Charles Dickens classic with BBC Films honcho Christine Langan saying Ianucci's “sensibility usually runs very clearly through all his work. This won’t »

Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace And Gary Oldman Topline New Posters For Russian Thriller Child 44

26 March 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa proved he had an eye for the thriller genre with 2012’s Safe House, and now the director has a meaty subject matter on his lap with the upcoming adaptation, Child 44.

Based on Tom Rob Smith’s eponymous novel, the story centers around Soviet Russia circa 1953, a time when the Cold War was beginning to spread its tentacles and corruption was rife. Playing the part of Leo Demidov is Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy, a secret police agent who soon finds himself in political hot war after he refuses to denounce his wife, Rasia (Noomi Rapace).

Thereafter, the pair find themselves exiled from the country and crossing paths with Gary Oldman’s General Mikhail Nesterov, who together must uncover the government conspiracy surrounding a number of child murders in the country.

With a star-studded cast that also encompasses Joel Kinnaman, Paddy Considine, Jason Clarke, »

Robocop and Gambit writer to pen Boston Marathon film

25 March 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that RoboCop writer Joshua Zetumer has been hired to write the new film that will chronicle the aftermath of the bombing at the Boston Marathon 2013.

Adapting the non-fiction book by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge called Boston Strong, the new film has been in pre-production since last November, with Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) set to direct. Zetumer will rewrite an existing draft from screenwriters Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy (The Fighter), and was picked by the studio as he has most recently been working with them on the script for Gambit, the spin-off X-Men movie starring Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher).

The story is primarily based around the hunt for the bombers, which culminated in a chase around Boston which left a MIT policeman dead, as well as one of the bombers, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The second bomber,

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is currently undergoing his trial for the bombings »

Daniel Espinosa Tackling Morningstar For Warner Bros.

25 March 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After Safe House put him on the map, helmer Daniel Espinosa quickly became the go-to guy for mainstream crime dramas and action-thrillers, but now, as he finishes putting final touches on historical thriller Child 44, it seems the director is tackling something different for his next project. Espinosa is now in talks to direct Warner Bros.’ top-secret sci-fi project Morningstar.

Details are being kept under wraps, but the project is possibly being eyed as a series starter, involving “world-building” and being described as “in the tradition of a Cold War thriller.” David Birke (13 Sins, Paul Verhoeven’s upcoming stalker movie Elle) wrote the script, suggesting that Morningstar may involve at least some horror elements. Doug Davison (Oldboy) will produce.

Espinosa has had his pick of projects in recent months. With Child 44 attracting positive buzz in the weeks leading up to its April 17 bow, he’s been flirting with titles »

Child 44 Releases Three New Posters Featuring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, and Gary Oldman

25 March 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate has released three new Child 44 posters. Based on the novel by Tom Rob Smith, the film takes place in 1953 Soviet Russia and stars Tom Hardy as Leo Demidov, a secret police agent who is exiled to a provincial outpost when he refuses to denounce his wife, Rasia (Noomi Rapace). While working at the outpost, he and Raisa team up with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman), and must investigate a string of child murderers that are being covered up by the government. I’m not sure why this movie is flying so low under the radar. It’s got a great premise, the trailer looks solid, and it’s got an excellent cast. While I wasn’t a fan of director Daniel Espinosa’s previous movie, Safe House, I’ve got some hope for Child 44, and maybe it will be a nice bit of counterprogramming as we charge into blockbuster season. »

And as he digs deeper into the case, his government begins to suspect him of treason when a colleague frames him.Noomi Rapace is playing his conflicted wife, Raisa, and Gary Oldman is the »

'Safe House' Director Heads to Warner Bros. for 'Morningstar' Sci-Fi

24 March 2015 2:47 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Next month we'll see how Daniel Espinosa fares with his latest thriller Child 44 starring Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace (watch the trailer right here). But the director of Safe House is already looking ahead to his next project, and it's going to take him into the realm of sci-fi. The Wrap reports that Espinosa is in talks to be at the helm of Morningstar, a secretive sci-fi flick set up at Warner Bros. Pictures. Details are being kept under tight wraps, but the script from David Birke is said to have the potential for some world-building (which means potential franchise) and has a story in "the tradition of a Cold War thriller." That doesn't give us much to go on, but original science fiction ideas at the studio level are hard to come by, so count us intrigued for the time being. Espinosa hasn't exactly blown me »

20th Century Fox has enlisted RoboCop writer Joshua Zetumer to adapt Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge’s nonfiction book Boston Strong, which chronicles the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. The studio picked up the project in November and attached Safe House helmer Daniel Espinosa to direct.

Daniel Espinosa Lights The Morningstar

24 March 2015 2:13 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

He flirted with the Assassin's Creed movie for a while, but Daniel Espinosa's desire to move off real-world thrillers and into something with a bit of a sci-fi tinge has ultimately led him in a different direction. He's in talks to direct Warner Bros.' top secret Morningstar project, from a screenplay by David Birke (13 Sins).Espinosa previously made the international hit Snabba Cash, followed by his mainstream debut Safe House, with Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington. Most recently he's been at work on Child 44, based on Tom Rob Smith's novel and sporting the pitch-hitting cast of Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace and Vincent Cassel. Ridley Scott is among the producers.In short, his is becoming an increasingly safe pair of hands where real-world thrillers are concerned, so something fantastical that calls for "world building" is a surprising tangent.

Joel Kinnaman Confirms He's Joined David Ayer's 'Suicide Squad'

9 March 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was reported back in mid-February that Warner Bros. and director David Ayer were looking at Joel Kinnaman (Run All Night, RoboCop) to replace the departed Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg in the DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad. Now we have official word from the actor via an interview with Allocine the he will indeed be in the film, though he isn't about to say which character just yet. "All I can say is that I'm going to be in the movie, and it's going to be amazing," Kinnaman said. In a separate interview he confirms he's playing Flagg. The following comes from Uproxx: You mention being aware of what the fans want, how does that play into what you want to do with Rick Flag in Suicide Squadc He's not a super known character, so maybe you don't have to worry about that as much and you can really own it. »

'Child 44', 'Monsters: Dark Continent' & 'Aloft' in Today's MPAA Ratings

4 March 2015 6:14 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A little bit of a lackluster ratings update today as Daniel Espinosa's Child 44 is probably the most recognizable title on the board for most. Starring Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace, this adaptation of the Tom Rob Smith novel hits theaters on April 17 and it will do so with an R-rating. Next is the sequel to 2010's Monsters, Monsters: Dark Continent, which also receives an R-rating, though Radius-twc has not yet set a release date, though it is expected some time in April. Finally we have Claudia Llosa's Aloft, which Sony Classics picked up out of the Berlin Film Festival. The pic, which stars Melanie Laurent, Jennifer Connelly and Cillian Murphy, is Llosa's English language debut and it doesn't yet have an official release date. Check out the complete bulletin below. Aloft Rated R For language and some sexuality. Note: Edited For Re-rate. Previous "R" Rating, »

Exclusive UK Poster For Child 44

12 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Tom Hardy. Gary Oldman. Noomi Rapace. A tale of Soviet intrigue. We know a lot of you have been looking forward to Child 44, so we’re happy to be offering a first look at the new UK poster for the movie, in one-sheet and quad flavours, because choice is good. Adapted from the first of a book trilogy by Tom Rob Smith, Child 44 finds Soviet police officer Hardy investigating a serial killer who is targeting children. But as he digs deeper into the case, his own government begins to suspect him of treason when a colleague frames him. Rapace is playing his conflicted wife and Oldman is the chief of police eventually assigned to investigate Hardy. Safe House director Daniel Espinosa is behind this one, working up a tale of paranoia, treachery and crime that is loosely based on real events. With Richard Price handling script chores and Joel Kinnaman, »
