Felt revealed himself in 2005 as Deep Throat, the nickname given to him by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein as they uncovered the Watergate scandal that led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation in 1974. Felt died in 2008.
“The Silent Man” also stars Diane Lane, Marton Csokas, Josh Lucas, Tony Goldwyn, Michael C. Hall, Tom Sizemore, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ike Barinholtz, Bruce Greenwood, Brian D’Arcy James, Kate Walsh, and Noah Wyle. “Concussion” director Peter Landesman directed “The Silent Man” from his own script.
“The Silent Man” has been set for a September release with Sony Classics referring to “recent political turmoil” as sparking a renewed public interest in Felt’s story.
That’s a reference to President Donald Trump’s May 9 firing of FBI Director James

Liam Neeson, ‘Departed’ Scribe William Monahan Team Up for Philip Marlowe Movie (Exclusive)
“El Desconocido” followed a bank executive (Carlos Tosar) who received an anonymous phone call while taking his children to school, telling him that bombs had been placed under the car’s seats and would explode if any of them left. The film was nominated for eight Goya Awards.
Neeson will play a Wall Street executive in the remake, which has been written by Chris Salmanpour and Andrew Baldwin.
The character has a special set of skills that involve being restless and lonely until a beautiful woman shakes up the hard-bit private detectives world, sending him on a dark quest through a twisted mystery. You know, classic noir stuff with Liam Neeson. Scribe Monahan said:
The book by Benjamin Black was a pleasure to adapt, and with Marlowe there’s no chance of even being asked to do it left-handed. You have to do Chandler justice,
Marlowe will be based on Benjamin Black’s book The Black-Eyed Blonde, and “follows the tough as nails private detective the early 1950s where Marlowe is as restless and lonely as ever, and business is a little slow. That is until a beautiful blonde client comes in and asks Marlowe to find her ex-lover. He soon comes to find out that the ex-lover’s disappearance is just a part of bigger mystery and soon has Marlowe wrapped up with one of the more

This’ll mark Philip Marlowe’s first appearance in a major motion picture since 1978, with the story coming courtesy of Irish writer John Banville (writing under the pen name of Benjamin Black). His 2014 novel is an attempt to produce a convincing interpretation of Raymond Chandler’s character, with the book (and presumably the film) set in early 1950s Los Angeles,
William Monahan of The Departed fame is writing the screenplay for the project, and told Variety: “It’s hard to tell who has the more of a lion’s heart and soul, Philip Marlowe or Liam Neeson. I hope I’ve done the both of them and a picture

Dallas Howard’s Tweet quotes her character in Jurassic World, the dialogue marking the moment where the glossy family friendly amusement park begins changing into a buffet for gigantic prehistoric monstrosities. Given the nature of the Jurassic franchise, we can probably expect to see further examples of
A new writer has joined The Six Billion Dollar Man movie, and the film is very close to getting made, Mark Wahlberg tells us…
Director Peter Berg and producer/star Mark Wahlberg reunite for the second time with Deepwater Horizon, that’s in cinemas in the UK today. Previously, they made Lone Survivor together, and they’ve already shot their third movie, Patriots Day, which tells the story of the Boston marathon bombing of 2013, and the hunt for those responsible. That gets a wide release early next year.
The pair now have plans for a fourth collaboration too, with a remake of The Six Million Dollar Man, that somewhat inevitably is going by the name of The Six Billion Dollar Man.
Chatting to us whilst promoting Deepwater Horizon, Wahlberg confirmed that there’s been some significant progress on the project.

Martin Scorsese’s modern gangster classic The Departed is heading to TV via Amazon Studios and Warner Bros...
The Departed, Martin Scorsese’s 2006 modern mob classic starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson and Mark Wahlberg, is coming to TV as a series. The Oscar-winning movie will get a reboot as a crime drama series from Amazon Studios as well as the original film’s producers Vertigo Entertainment, Initial Entertainment Group and Plan B Entertainment. This is the first time Amazon has bought anything from Warner Bros. TV.
The script for The Departed series was written Jason Richman, who created Detroit 1-8-7.
The original film was set in Boston where Irish Mob boss Francis "Frank" Costello, played by Nicholson, paid for Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon) to complete police training and get set up in the Massachusetts State Police. DiCaprio plays William "Billy" Costigan, who pretends to get
Jessica Rabbit kidnapped by Nazis. Costner rescuing Princess Diana. We look back at a few strange movie sequels that were never made…
The multi-million dollar success of any movie will inevitably leave Hollywood executives clamouring for a sequel. And while there are plenty of movies whose stories are open-ended enough to warrant a return to the creative well, there are many times when coming up with a follow-up idea requires all sorts of imaginative leaps. Just look at something like Alien: Resurrection, which had to come up an elaborate reason why Ripley had (spoiler alert) managed to survive a swan-dive into a lead foundry in Alien 3.
Which brings us to this list, which is devoted to a few of the weirder sequel ideas that never made it to the big screen. An E.T. sequel in which little Elliott gets tortured by aliens? Forrest Gump dancing with Princess Diana?
Since life finds a way, Jurassic Park 4 was eventually made under the title Jurassic World. But many ideas floated around beforehand...
Although Jurassic Park III made less money than The Lost World: Jurassic Park - which itself had made less money than the original Jurassic Park - there was never much doubt that Universal wanted another dino-stuffed movie from Steven Spielberg's Michael Crichton-inspired film franchise. The problem was working out exactly how to do this, after the sequels had failed to live up to the financial success and audience adoration of the first film.
Eventually, we got the box office-smashing Jurassic World and Chris Pratt in a natty waistcoat. But before that, tonnes of ideas came and went as Universal attempted to nail down the best way to resurrect the series without the help of ancient mosquituoes...
