Gugu Mbatha-Raw — whose name is short for Gugulethu, which is Zulu for “Our Pride” — is quickly showing her versatility as an actress portraying an 18th century aristocrat and a hip-hop star over the course of a year.

Although not pictured, Channing Tatum has also signed to the cast in a role. The film will see a group of 8 people travelling across snowy terrain some time after the American Civil War. »

What a difference a year makes. At the beginning of 2014, Quentin Tarantino shelved The Hateful Eight after a draft of the script was leaked online. But as the year has progressed, Tarantino has gone from suing over the leak to having a staged reading to casting and is now ready to film entirely in Colorado next month. Samuel L. Jackson is once again reuniting with Tarantino, and tweeted a couple images from behind the scenes. Admittedly, there’s nothing major here—no costumes or sets—but it is nice to see the assembled cast and have a reminder we’re getting a new Tarantino movie next year. Hit the jump to check out The Hateful Eight images. The film also stars Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Channing Tatum, Demian Bichir, and Bruce Dern. The Hateful Eight opens late 2015. Via Samuel L. Jackson. H8ful Eight rehearsal! »

At one time, Smashed and The Spectacular Now director James Ponsoldt was going to adapt Matthew Quick's young adult novel Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock. However, the project has switched hands and ended up in a surprising place as THR has learned that Channing Tatum will make his directorial debut with the film that follows the title character, a young man who heads out on his birthday with a gun in his backpack and a plan to kill his former best friend. However, he won't be alone because his producing partner Reid Carolin will co-direct the adaptation in addition to producing the film with Tatum as well. What makes this story interesting is that before Peacock goes through with his planned murder, followed by his own suicide, he spends his day saying goodbye to the four people he cares about the most: his Humphrey Bogart--obsessed next-door neighbor, Walt; his classmate Baback, »

The Weinstein Company adaptation of Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock has found its directors in Magic Mike‘s Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin.
