Ansel Elgort on Spider-Man rumours: 'It'd be a big commitment'

23 March 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ansel Elgort has addressed speculation linking him to the role of Spider-Man.

Sony is reportedly seeking an actor younger than Andrew Garfield to take over the role of Spider-Man in a new film rumoured to be directed by Drew Goddard.

Do we really need another Spider-Man?

The Fault in Our Stars star has been mentioned as a candidate for the role by multiple media outlets in recent weeks, but he appeared unsure of such a commitment in a recent interview.

"I like Captain America, I thought that was a dope film, really cool but I don't know, I've never done [a superhero role]," he told Screenrant.

He went on to say: "I think it would be a big thing to do and a big commitment."

Josh Hutcherson, Freddie Highmore and Donald Glover are among the actors who have expressed interest in playing the web-slinger.

Spider-Man will be featured in upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, »

Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff And More Join James Franco’s In Dubious Battle

18 March 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One the perks of being a producer-director-writer-actor is the sheer quantity of circles that the multi-hyphenate tag permits you entry into. For James Franco, this means he meets a lot of people. Moreso than any other non-celebrity might in a regular day. By that rationale, it’s probably a lot easier to cast movies seeing as he knows everybody. Applying that conclusion to today’s piece of news on his latest effort, In Dubious Battle seems to stick; he really does know everybody because everybody’s in the movie.

Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff, Analeigh Tipton, Ashley Greene and Ahna O’Reilly are the latest additions to a cast that’s already bulging with starry names. This new roster join Nat Wolff, who signed up two days ago, and the previously-announced Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Danny McBride, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston and Franco himself.

With principal photography now underway, it has been announced that Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), Zach Braff (Garden State), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love), Ashley Greene (Twilight) and Ahna O’Reilly (The Help) have joined the cast of James Franco’s John Steinbeck adaptation In Dubious Battle.

The five new additions join an all-star cast alongside Franco, Selena Gomez (Hotel Transylvania), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil), Robert Duvall (The Judge), Ed Harris (Snowpiercer), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) and John Savage (The Deer Hunter).

Set in a fictionalized valley in California, the story explores themes Steinbeck continued to develop: group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man— all themes which continue to be relevant today. A labor conflict between migrant apple pickers and the local growers’ association is the backdrop against which Jim Nolan (Franco) becomes involved in the labor movement and rapidly matures »

Lionsgate isn’t taking any chances when it comes to the final part of Katniss Everdeen’s saga. While The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is still several months away from release, the studio is rolling out stage one of its marketing campaign. In the spirit of the first three movies, a one-sheet poster outlining the triumphant Mockingjay has arrived online, along with a cheeky teaser trailer.

Turning to this brand new poster, the final stage of Katniss’ journey to bring down The Capitol and its devious leader President Snow is summed up by the tagline “The Fire Will Burn Forever.” Running along the central image of the burning Mockingjay pin, finally breaking free, it ties in to the message of Part 1: “If we burn, you burn with us.”

Similarly, the teaser trailer focuses its efforts on the same motif, albeit while offering little new material. While we can »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay . Part 2 Motion Poster Online

18 March 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The Hunger Games franchise has a history of motion posters – not surprising given the flaming bird logo that has represented the films for the past few years. With the final chapter, Mockingjay – Part 2 on its way, there’s a film series wrap-up underscoring the new image, which sees the Mockingjay breaking free of his circular barrier like a golden, feathery Freddie Mercury.Following on from the first Mockingjay, the second part of the story finds Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the rebels making the final push against Donald Sutherland's scheming President Snow and the Capitol, with lives on the line and sacrifices to be made. The new movie should boost the action quotient as the bigger beats are to be found lurking towards the end of Suzanne Collins’ third tome. With Francis Lawrence again directing and Lawrence joined on screen by Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Banks, »
