Despite the apparent casting of Chris Pine, Ben Foster and Jeff Bridges in the lead roles, and the presence of Starred Up director David Mackenzie calling the shots, new dramatic thriller Comancheria had managed to skim largely under the radar. Screen International brings word that it’s now shooting as part of a roundup of film acquisitions. Details about Comancheria are scarce at this point, but we do at least now know that Pine and Foster are playing a divorced father and his ex-con brother who must pull off a desperate scheme to save their family’s farm.The likes of Katy Mixon, Dale Dickey and Kevin Rankin are in the cast, and the script comes from Sicario’s Taylor Sheridan. It’s been snapped up by indie distributors Ascot Elite, a Swiss team that has also nabbed deals for the likes of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight and Gold, »
Would you see a western-tinged heist movie starring Chris Pine, Ben Foster, and Jeff Bridges? What if it was written by the guy who scripted Sicario, Taylor Sheridan, and directed by David Mackenzie, who made Starred Up? You’ll get a chance, as the film Comancheria is now rolling with that team behind the camera. Screen Daily via […]

Back in January, actor Tyrese Gibson shared some fan art depicting himself as John Stewart from the Green Lantern comic books. Ever since then, he has been actively campaigning for the role through his social media platforms, even teasing that he has met with Warner Bros. for the coveted role in Green Lantern Corps., which is set for release on June 19, 2020. Now it seems the actor may have some competition, with Lance Gross sending out a cryptic Instagram photo featuring the Green Lantern logo, along with the brief caption, "In Brightest Day."
The actor hasn't clarified what, exactly, the photo means through his social media platforms, but it's certainly possible that he is in the running to play John Stewart. We haven't heard about any other contenders for the role up until this point, but Tyrese Gibson confirmed in an interview last month that he has met with Warner Bros. for the role, »
“I’ve got nothing left… the music’s gone” The line appears in the third episode of Netflix’s “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp.” As spoken by Chris Pine playing a legendary musician that appears first in flashback and eventually in the show proper, there’s something indefinable—beyond Pine’s pitch-perfect delivery and his sad/confused hangdog expression—about what makes it so funny. It just is. These fleeting moments of truly-earned and hilarious comedy, mixed with a fully-committed cast and an overall amiable, progressive and silly worldview, are the reasons to catch up if you haven’t already binged the series this past weekend when it premiered. No doubt that fans of the original 2001 cult comedy will be satisfied, overstuffed even, with a bounty of callbacks and origin stories to their favorite moments and characters. But I can’t help but think that, were Netflix »

You may have heard about this one already, but for whatever reason it passed by our attention when it was first announced earlier this spring. We had wondered what "Starred Up" director David Mackenzie would be doing next following his terrific, critically acclaimed prison drama. The answer is: a heist flick. Yes, please. Screen Daily reveals that production has started on "Comacheria." Penned by "Sicario" writer Taylor Sheridan, whose script wound up on the 2012 Black List, the film stars Chris Pine, Ben Foster, and Jeff Bridges. The story follows two brothers, one an ex-con and the other a divorced father of two kids, who are facing the foreclosure of their family’s West Texas farm. They team for a skillfully-calculated bank robbing spree that puts them on a collision course with two Texas Rangers determined to take them down. This blend of material and talent sounds like potentially terrific stuff, »

After receiving an Emmy nomination for her work on Netflix’s “House of Cards,” Rachel Brosnahan has found her next big role opposite James Franco and Melissa Leo in “The Fixer,” Variety has learned exclusively.
The story follows a young Afghan journalist exiled from his war-torn country to a small bohemian community in Northern California. When he attempts to turn his menial job on the local police blotter into “Afghan-style” coverage of local crime he gets drawn into the backwoods of this small town — a shadow Northern California where sex is casual, true friendship is hard to come by, and an unfamiliar form of violence burbles up all around him.
Brosnahan can next be seen in season two of Wgn’s “Manhattan,” and “Louder Than Bombs” which »

This inaugural edition of The Week in Movies discusses the last seven days in cinema – mainly the new Star Wars Universe reports, details on Jurassic World 2, the first image from Wolverine 3, Tom Cruise going sequel crazy and a whole load of superhero stuff.
Here’s a brief peak behind the movie news site business’ cinema drapes – any articles with the words ‘Star Wars‘ in the title tend to get tonnes of page views. That’s why some sites make up headlines. Whether that includes this latest Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One rumour about Felicity Jones’ character being the daughter of one of the series’ most famous villains, or whether Lucasfilm are working on three live-action Star Wars series for Netflix, this column couldn’t possibly say (for more news from a galaxy far, far away, check out The Week in Star Wars). It can, however, say this:

Despite playing everything from dastardly villains to wounded souls over his 38-year career, a certain theme keeps coming up for Bruce Greenwood; authority. He’s played multiple presidents, doctors and military men in his time and with good reason. Capable of bringing a rare balance of kind-hearted but stern gravitas to his roles, Greenwood shone in the likes of Star Trek, Flight and Mad Men, with his recent turn as Lieutenant Colonel Jack Johns in Good Kill continuing the trend.
Casting its beady eye onto the world of drone warfare, Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill isn’t your typical war movie. Reuniting Gattaca writer-director with leading man Ethan Hawke, the film takes place far from an explosive warzone, but raises questions about this controversial and largely unexplored subject.
How does Good Kill differ from other war movies?
It takes place in Las Vegas, where a lot of the drone pilots are stationed. »

Even though we have three more long months before the release of the next Bond film, Spectre, people are already buzzing about who will sing the film's theme song. It's going to be tough to beat Adele's Oscar-winning song "Skyfall," but we're sure whoever lands the gig will do a spectacular job. Bond-tune buffs Adrian Daub and Charlie Kronengold list off their best guesses in this post originally featured on Oxford University Press's blog. Image Source: Columbia Pictures Now's the moment to be a fan of the Bond songs. Spectre, the new film, comes out this November. That means we'll hear an official unofficial leak of the title song sometime this Summer. Everybody's been guessing who the singer is. Twitter says it'll be Sam Smith or Lana Del Rey. Sam Smith says it isn't him and claims that he "heard Ellie Goulding was going to do it." The Telegraph »
Well, it's finally August, and while the summer movie season isn't completely over it might as well be. This article was a difficult one to put together, because there just isn't much to recommend this month. But you know what, that's okay, I think I managed to pull together five solid titles for the "must-see" section, and lucky for us the fall festival season is just around the corner, which means things are about to heat up exponentially on the prestige movie front just in time to compensate for things cooling down outside as the seasons change. (I should note here, it is currently 106 degrees fahrenheit here in the desert, and the thought of things cooling down is marvelous, but also very premature.) We are coming off what turned out to be a pretty solid month last month, in my opinion, as I settled back into my routine after a »

Exactly one year ago, Warner Bros. and DC Comics announced their insane 9 movie line-up that will take them through 2020. It sounded very ambitious, and some didn't think it was possible. But here we are, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is in the can, undergoing post-production work as it rockets towards its March 2016 release date. The second movie on the slate is Suicide Squad, which is currently shooting in Toronto. More than three quarters of the film has been completed, and we've already seen the first teaser trailer. Now comes official word that the next two movies in this amazing line-up are ready to go.
Wonder Woman will arrive June 23, 2017. Director Patty Jenkins is currently in London, prepping Diana Prince's first solo big screen adventure. The character will first be seen in next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. Gal Gadot has long been attached to play Wonder Woman, »
Now that Patty Jenkins (Monster) has been secured for the director’s chair on Warner Bros. and DC Comics’ Wonder Woman stand-alone, the studios are moving fast to keep star Gal Gadot in her Amazonian body armor and get cameras rolling on the monumental superhero blockbuster.
According to Empire, which just ran a cover story focusing on next year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, there are currently a ton of moving parts with regard to the blossoming WB/DC Cinematic Universe. An excerpt from the story reads:
Logistically it is staggering. As Batman V Superman gains its coat of special effects, and the various stages of editing, scoring, grading and sound mixing are completed, Deborah Snyder, along with Roven is watching over a sandbox that stretches around the world. Jenkins is in London prepping Wonder Woman, which will shoot there this autumn.

Movie news - Chris Pine has joined the cast of 'Wonder Woman'. The 'Star Trek' actor has reportedly agreed a multi-picture deal that includes sequel options with the DC Movie Universe to portray Steve Trevor, The Wrap reports. Plot details for the movie remain under wraps, but Pine's character is expected to be a love interest for Gal Gadot's Diana Prince/ Wonder Woman but will also be given ''plenty of action''. Earlier this month, the 30-year-old lead actress admitted she expects the movie - which is due for release on June 23, 2017 - won't please them all''. She said: ''No matter what you do, you can never please them all. ''People will always have something to say because that's the way people are. And it's okay. But for me, it's my job. It's my career. It's my art.'' Gal said she hopes her performance will act as a source of inspiration, »
Captain Kirk is jumping into the superhero craze.
Pine was rumored to be weighing an offer to play Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman or Hal Jordan in Green Lantern, but according to The Wrap, it seems like there wasn’t really a choice — Pine was always looking at this project. Now, he joins Gal Gadot in the superhero picture that will follow the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (which just had a Comic-Con trailer) and Suicide Squad (which wowed people at Comic-Con with its trailer).

Update: The Wrap reports that Chris Pine has closed his deal to play Steve Trevor opposite Gal Gadot in the forthcoming Wonder Woman movie that's hitting theaters on June 23, 2017. This means that unless they decide to completely veer away from the comics, Pine will not play one of the Green Lanterns in DC's Green Lantern Corps movie. See our original story below for more on his character and the film. Previously... Not too long ago there was a rumor going around that Chris Pine was up for the role of Hal Jordan, Aka the Green Lantern, in the new DC Comics cinematic universe. Hopefully you didn't get too attached to that idea, though, as it seems like there's no way that will happen considering Warner Bros. has reportedly entered negotiations with the Star Trek...
