Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot finished shooting awhile back, but we have barely seen anything from the film. This is incredibly surprising, especially when we see stuff from Batman v Superman and Star Wars: Episode VII leaking almost every day. Fox must actually threaten to kill people if they leak anything. I got banned from Facebook for three days because of a set photo of Thing that I posted. I'm really curious to see what Trank and the studio have done with this classic Marvel superhero team.
In a recent interview with producer Simon Kinberg, we learn the reason why we haven't seen anything official yet. This is what he said to ComicBook.com:
"We’re putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make »

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg has spoken about the upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four whilst promoting the home entertainment release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, specifically when we might expect to see the first footage from the film…
“We’re putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make sure that the first thing we put out really expresses the voice of the movie, and isn’t compromised by not having visual effects ready, or anything like that. I don’t actually know when [a trailer is] coming out, but I’ve seen all the footage from the movie. I was there for pretty much the whole shoot. It is a very different film from the others, and one that I think is very different from other superhero movies. It’s a very emotional, »

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg is currently in post-production on the 20th Century Fox superhero adventure The Fantastic Four, and everything we've heard about the reboot thus far makes it clear that this is vastly different than any other incarnation of these superheroes that have come before it. With the release less than a year away, many fans have been wondering when the first footage will debut. When asked that very question in a recent interview, Simon Kinberg reveals that he doesn't known when the first trailer will arrive. But he has a good reason why we haven't seen anything yet.

Composer Ramin Djawadi (Pacific Rim) has signed on to provide the score for director Duncan Jones' video game adaptation Warcraft, which is currently in post-production after wrapping principal photography in July.
Warcraft is based on the massively popular video game of the same name, where players control characters in a long-standing war between the Horde and the Alliance in a mystical realm full of various creatures. We reported in May that the project will undergo nearly two years of post-production work, before it is released in March 2016. Producer Thomas Tull revealed that the video game adaptation will employ "next generation" technology to bring this fantasy world to life. The first footage was shown at Comic-Con this summer, but it's unclear when the general public may get to see what this massive movie looks like.
Well here's a little surprise. Eddie Murphy doesn't work often, and when he does, it's usually in his comedy wheelhouse. And thus he goes down the drama road even less, but just like that, the actor has joined the next untitled movie from Bruce Beresford ("Driving Miss Daisy," "Breaker Morant"). He replaces Samuel L. Jackson, playing "a cook who is hired by a dying man to prepare meals for his girlfriend and her daughter when he passes." The script is from Susan McMartin ("Californication," "Two And A Half Men") and production begins next month. [If] Gal Gadot is suddenly the woman of the hour. Now part of Warner Bros. DC universe as Wonder Woman, she's on Hollywood's radar in a big way, and has been cast in Timur Bekmambetov's "Ben-Hur" remake. She joins Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell, and Morgan Freeman, taking the role of love interest Esther. Meanwhile, Pedro Pascal, »

Ben-Hur: Israeli actress Gal Gadot, who will play Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and then star in her own stand-alone Wonder Woman movie in 2017, is in early negotiations for the female lead in the new version of Ben-Hur. She would portray a slave who becomes a love interest for the titular character (Jack Huston). Toby Kebbell and Morgan Freeman are already set; Timur Bekmambetov will direct, aiming for a release in February 2016. [The Hollywood Reporter] Steve Jobs: Earlier this year, we heard that David Fincher would only direct a movie based on the life and career of Apple cofounder Steve Jobs if Christian Bale agreed to star.

Pedro Pascal and Gal Gadot are definitely on the rise. Pascal joined the cast of "Game of Thrones" last year and quickly made Oberyn Martell one of the best characters on a show already filled with great characters. Gadot is about to play the premiere female superhero Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and the just announced standalone Wonder Woman and two-part Justice League films. Well, both actors are circling the forthcoming Ben-Hur remake, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, to add to their resumes. Pascal will play Pontius Pilate, and Gadot will take on the role of Esther, a slave who is Ben-Hur's love interest. The cast already includes Jack Huston as the titular prince betrayed into slavery, Toby Kebbell as his betrayer, and Morgan Freeman as probably someone wise. I do not understand why this story needs to be told again. The 1959 version, starring Charlton Heston, »

Following the barrage of news about Warner Bros. Pictures' release plans for their DC Comics big screen ventures, which included a 2017 release date for Wonder Woman, the star of the female superhero flick is lining up another lead role before she has to whip out her lasso again. THR has word that Gal Gadot is in early talks to take the female lead role in Paramount and MGM's co-production of Ben-Hur, a new adaptation of the classic Lew Wallace novel of the same name from 1880. Jack Huston has already taken the lead role of the Jewish prince betrayed by his friend Messala (Toby Kebbell) and now the cast is filling out. Gadot would play Esther, a slave that Ben-Hur falls in love with on his journey, but a deal isn't done yet. Also in talks for a role, according to Deadline, is last season's fan favorite "Game of Thrones" star »

Maybe the world doesn’t really need another Ben-Hur, but if it has to have one it may as well feature an intriguing cast. Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell, and Morgan Freeman signed on for the Timur Bekmambetov-directed epic last month, and future Wonder Woman Gal Gadot nabbed the female lead yesterday. As of today, the latest addition to the cast […]

Movies give Pontius Pilate a bad wrap. Yes, he gave the orders to crucify Jesus Christ. But check canonical Biblical writing and one finds a tinge of reluctance, a man of power caving under the peoples' demands. Plus, would we still be talking about God's Son if Pilate didn't off him in the grisliest way possible? Silver linings. Pending deals, the next on-screen Pilate could add all this nuance with a splash of smarmy charm. Deadline reports that "Game of Thrones" favorite Pedro Pascal is in talks to play Judaea's prefect in the upcoming remake of "Ben-Hur." The film is said to skew closer to Lew Wallace's 1880 novel than the 1959 Charlton Heston-led epic, which chronicled the parallel stories of Jewish prince-turned-slave Judah Ben-Hur's quest for revenge and Christ's Passion. The in the original film, Pilate presides over the major chariot race setpiece and orders Jesus' death. He »

Even more “Ben-Hur” news.
On the same day with Gal Gadot in talks for the leading lady role in “Ben-Hur,” Deadline discovered HBO’s “Game of Thrones” actor Pedro Pascal is also in negotiations for a part. The site claims he’ll be playing Pontius Pilate, who will play a significant role in the remake of the film.
Pascal played Oberyn Martell or Red Viper of Dorne on the “Game of Thrones. And of course, he had an impressive arena battle in a fight to the death that would just make one’s head explode. »

Following the announcement of a standalone Wonder Woman movie, Gal Gadot has also been revealed to be in the running for the female lead of the Ben-Hur remake. Gadot will play Esther in the movie.

It will tell the story of Jewish prince Judah Ben-Hur and his blood fued with childhood friend Messala, a Roman who betrays Ben-Hur, resulting in him being sold into slavery and vowing revenge.

Pontius Pilate plays a significant part in the Ben-Hur remake, which will be much more faithful to Lew Wallace's original 1880 novel, which told the parallel tale of Jesus Christ alongside Ben-Hur's story. In the Bible, Pontius Pilate is the prefect from Judea who oversaw the trial of Jesus Christ and ordered his crucifixion.
Jack Huston is playing the title character, who was betrayed by his longtime friend Messalla (Toby Kebbell), and sold into slavery. Morgan Freeman plays Ben-Hur's new mentor, who teaches him to become a chariot racer, a skill which will come in handy during the epic chariot race towards the end of this remake, mirroring the original Ben-Hur's iconic finale. »
This morning, we heard news that MGM’s remake of the 1959 swords-n-sandals epic, Ben-Hur, had nearly bagged itself a leading lady. Wonder Woman Gal Gadot might be signing on the dotted line to join a cast that so far, consists entirely of chaps. And now we can add another bloke to the ever-expanding call sheet, as Game Of Thrones star Pedro Pascal is also in negotiations for a juicy role.
Earlier this year, Pascal fought valiantly as Oberyn Martell in season four of HBO’s medieval fantasy series. His showiest moment alas came during his last scene, as he fought the hulking monstrosity known as The Mountain. He was an immensely likeable character and it’s a shame we won’t see him return to Westeros. However, if he signs on for Ben-Hur, he’ll still be kitted out in the finest period garb as he’s slated to play Pontius Pilate. »

Exclusive: Pedro Pascal, who made an indelible impression on the last season of HBO’s Game Of Thrones, is in talks to play Pontius Pilate in the Timur Bekmambetov-directed Ben-Hur remake at MGM and Paramount. In Game Of Thrones, Pascal played Oberyn Martell (also called the Red Viper of Dorne), who volunteered to fight a death battle in the arena to win the freedom of accused king killer Tyrion Lannister. The Viper engaged in battle with The Mountain, a brutish warrior who years before had raped and murdered Oberyn’s sister. Oberyn had the brute dead to rights, but got a little careless and too close, and ended up on the wrong end of The Mountain’s crushing grip. But Pascal stayed around long enough to make a strong impression.
