Bomer will play the husband of a woman (Bennett) who hires a motley gang of gunslingers to help protect her town from bandits.
The actor won a Golden Globe in 2014 for his starring role in HBO's AIDS crisis movie The Normal Heart.
Both Marvel Studios and Warner Bros./DC have announced impressive comic book movie slates through the years 2019 and 2020, respectively, but the X-Men franchise over at Fox doesn.t quite have the same kind of long-term plan mapped out. Tim Miller.s Deadpool, Bryan Singer.s X-Men: Apocalypse, and the Gambit solo film starring Channing Tatum are all coming out next year, and the third and final Wolverine title is coming in 2017. But nothing else is currently on the books. Of course, just because projects don.t have release dates doesn.t mean that they aren.t still in the works. Just this week we learned the news that Josh Boone has been hired to make a New Mutants movie, and a few years ago there was talk about the development of X-Force. And let.s also not forget the possibility that exists in coordination with what.s going on with »
The wrester said that Miller turned his life into a "horror story" by focusing on the murder of his brother Dave, who was played by Mark Ruffalo in the 2014 film.
He told ShortList: "I'm happy that my brother was immortalised. That was the main reason I did it.
"I'm very happy that it got five Oscar nominations and that they got Channing Tatum to play me, I keep telling people the only guy they could come up with to play me was the sexiest man in the world!
"But I didn't expect Miller to choose the darkest part of my life to focus on - Dave's murder - and expand that into a movie. I thought they'd focus on the wrestling, becoming the ultimate cage fighter, being victorious.
"It ended up being almost the complete opposite - a nightmare, »
Josh Boone's career is off to a fast start, beginning with the success of The Fault in Our Stars, which then translated into a gig adapting Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles at Universal and plans for an adaptation of Stephen King's "The Stand" at Warner Bros. Now he's taking on another big project at another major studio as he will begin work on the X-Men franchise spinoff The Mutant Chronicles at Fox, which he will direct and co-write with Jackass producer Knate Gwaltney. The New Mutants is a group of teenaged mutant superheroes-in-training including characters such as Cannonball, Karma, Mirage, Sunspot and Wolfsbane and apparently served as the comic introduction to Deadpool, which may hint at a possible tie-in with the upcoming movie starring Ryan Reynolds. "We're so excited to explore this new part of the X-Men universe," producer Simon Kinberg told Deadline. "And so excited to do it with Josh, »

So the studio has hired The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone to make The New Mutants.Fox has made no secret of its desire to build a wider universe around the various mutants and other heroes to which it owns the rights – Deadpool is busy shooting with Ryan Reynolds back in the suit and Channing Tatum is lining up a Gambit film. The New Mutants have been rumoured for a couple of years, but this is the first real announcement about forward motion on the idea.The question will be which of the teams known as the New Mutants will be the focus here. Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod created the original squad of teen heroes »

As Variety first reported, Redmayne was the front-runner for the role and was intrigued by the part but wanted to wait for a finished script before committing. Insiders say that now that the script has been delivered, he is very happy with what he has read.
Though director David Yates may be considering a few other actors, it’s looking like Redmayne has the inside track.
WB declined to comment on this story.
Set in New York roughly seven decades before Harry Potter’s saga starts, “Fantastic Beasts” is based on the Hogwarts textbook of the same name and follows the adventures of its author, Newt Scamander. »

The bidding for the article was quite competitive, with studios including Universal in the hunt for the rights, Paramount came in with the best offer.
Written by Jeff Maysh, the article tells the tale of how the police department in the rural town of Flint, Minn., devised a plan in 1990 to create a fake wedding in order to lure all the local drug dealers to one party.
Flint was going through a depression as thousands of people were laid off and forced to leave the community following the closing of several General Motors auto plants. Drug dealers from all over the state found the town to be a new haven to peddle every drug possible, leading to Flint being labeled as “one of the worst cities in America to »

The Mother of Dragons wants to heat things up with Channing Tatum and his equally hot wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum. "Game of Thrones" stunner Emilia Clarke works it out in the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, where she looks gorgeous in some haute couture while opening up about her celeb crushes and getting naked on the hit HBO show. While the series is a fan favorite, it's apparently huge with the celeb set as well -- and Clarke was shocked to find out how much the "Magic Mike" star and his wife loved the show.

Normally, it would be pretty silly to devote an entire news article to what an actor’s hair will look like in an upcoming movie, but here, I’ll make an exception. After sporting a full head of hair in X-Men: First Class and a shaggy mane in X-Men: Days of Future Past, it’s been revealed that James McAvoy is finally shaving it all off to play the famously bald leader of the X-Men, Professor X, in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
Director Bryan Singer released a behind-the-scenes shot of McAvoy in the barber’s chair, newly bald for the part. The shift means that his Xavier is getting closer and closer to the Patrick Stewart version of the character who last appeared in Days of Future Past. That makes sense, seeing as Apocalypse is set in the ’80s and picks up with Professor X around 20 years after he »

With production underway on X-Men: Apocalypse, a casting call for extras has landed online, which appears to give us our first plot synopsis for the Bryan Singer-directed superhero sequel. Oh, and it also “confirms” Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Channing Tatum’s Gambit – although it should be noted that these casting calls are often mistaken and so we should probably wait until we hear something official from Fox before taking that as gospel…

After a turbulent period of stolen screenplays and regrettable lawsuits last year, Quentin Tarantino decided to eschew his frustrations and finally film his mammoth screenplay for The Hateful Eight, a purportedly brutal and bloody western about a coterie of strangers who tell each other stories and kill stuff, like The Canterbury Tales but with more swearing.
