Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

26 March 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Since they began dating last August, Robert Pattinson and Fka Twigs have taken their love all over the globe, popping up in La; London; Brussels, Belgium; NYC; and most recently, Paris.

26 March 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The new film from acclaimed director Harmony Korine is gathering pace, with THR reporting that not only has the filmmaker set his cast of actors for The Trap, but that Focus Feautures is set to pre-buy the film before it begins production.

The Trap is “a revenge tale set against the backdrop of the Miami music scene” that will see Idris Elba (The Gunman) stars as “a gangster rap artist” and Benicio Del Toro (Inherent Vice) as “his best friend who took the fall for a robbery the duo committed years earlier.”

Elba is set to replace original star Jamie Foxx, with James Franco (Spring Breakers), Robert Pattinson (Maps to the Stars) and Al Pacino (Heat) also in final talks to join the cast.

In The Trap, written by Korine, “Rico (Elba) is at the top of his career and about to enjoy a triumphant night at the Grammy Awards »

Harmony Korine’s The Trap Snares Idris Elba, Benicio Del Toro, Al Pacino And More

25 March 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After delivering the unexpectedly harrowing Spring Breakers, director Harmony Korine is choosing to dabble in a new realm of crime for The Trap. Swapping out the sunny undertones of his 2012 offering, this next jaunt hones in on the same Floridian setting for an albeit much darker tale of revenge. The gritty caper has now caught the eye of Focus Features, who are angling to lock down distribution on the pic. And it’s no surprise considering the calibre of talent now attached.

Per THR, Idris Elba has replaced Jamie Foxx, who was originally tied into one of the leading roles as a gangster rap artist. He is said to be joined by Benicio Del Toro as his best friend who took the fall for a robbery the pair committed years earlier.

The crux of the action is poised to take place in the present day as Del Toro’s convict »

Idris Elba to Play a Gangster Rapper in Harmony Korine's 'The Trap'

25 March 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last fall, both Jamie Foxx and Benicio del Toro had joined Harmony Korine's next film, a revenge tale called The Trap. However, it looks like only one of those actors has stuck with the project as THR reports Focus Features is now picking up the Us rights to the film, but with some changes to the cast. Idris Elba will be stepping up to take the role meant for Jamie Foxx, which is that of a gangster rap artist with a friend (del Toro) who took the fall for a robbery the two committed years ago. But now that friend is out of jail and looking for revenge. Honestly, you had me at Idirs Elba as a gangster rapper, but there's a great cast here. In addition to Elba joining the project, Al Pacino, Robert Pattinson and Korine's Spring Breakers scene stealer James Franco are all in final talks »

24 March 2015 10:44 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Idris Elba is replacing Jamie Foxx in Harmony Korine's The Trap.

The Luther actor will now appear in the film alongside Benicio Del Toro, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Robert Pattinson, James Franco and Al Pacino are also in talks to co-star.

Elba will play Rico in the movie, a successful gangster rapper confronted by a friend from the past who is released from prison after 14 years.

Slim (Del Toro) is hellbent on revenge after taking the rap for a robbery and recruits a crew of Uzi-wielding surfers led by Max (Pattinson) and Rico's manager (Franco).

Elba recently began filming for the BBC's Luther miniseries, which will return for two 60-minute episodes later this year.

The 42-year-old will appear in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron movie, and has also been working on war drama Beasts of No Nation, as well as a new documentary titled Mandela, My Dad and Me. »

Idris Elba Replaces Jamie Foxx In Harmony Korine's 'The Trap,' Al Pacino, Robert Pattinson, James Franco Also Join

24 March 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Harmony Korine’s “The Trap” is already going to be on our most anticipated list, presumably for next year, but the project just got that much more interesting. The movie is finalizing its major casting pieces, and three more actors have joined the cast: Idris Elba (“Luther,” and “The Wire” star) is evidently the new lead actor, and James Franco and Al Pacino are in supporting roles. They join the already cast Robert Pattinson and Benico Del Toro in additional supporting roles. What does this mean for the originally cast Jamie Foxx? Well, he’s dropped out of the project and has been replaced by Elba. But his loss is really the “Thor” actor’s gain, as aside from TV work, Elba hasn’t scored many plum lead film roles yet, and this sounds like the part. “The Trap” is set in Miami’s music scene and is a revenge »

Idris Elba to Lead Harmony Korine's 'The Trap' with Pattinson, Pacino, Franco & Del Toro

24 March 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

To say Harmony Korine is one of my favorite filmmakers would be a boldfaced lie. That is not to say his movies are not interesting, except for Mr. Lonely, but his approach of getting a group of people together and just messing around for a bit does not gel with me. Up until now, though, he has not had a group of people of this caliber, so his latest film, The Trap, certainly has me raising an eyebrow with a bit of a smirk. Idris Elba, everyone's favorite actor to hypothetically cast in movies, has signed on to play the film's lead Rico, a gangster rap artist at the height of his power, taking over for Jamie Foxx. Benicio Del Toro will play Rico's former best friend Slim, who took the fall for a robbery the two committed years earlier, and Slim is just now getting released from prison to »

Spring Breakers writer/director Harmony Korine’s next project is firming up, and it looks to be every bit as wild and intriguing as his last film.
