First Look At Alexander Ludwig In Lone Survivor!

28 November 2012 5:22 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Alexander Ludwig will have quite difficult job in the upcoming Lone Survivor movie, but he definitely looks more than ready to fight against some dangerous terrorists! Don’t trust me? C’mon, we’re talking about a Navy Seal member! Well, you better check out these first set photos from the whole thing, and make sure you let us know what you think!

In case you’re not so familiar with this war-drama, I will first inform you that director Peter Berg stands behind the whole thing, and that, beside Ludwig, the movie also stars Ben Foster, Taylor Kitsch, Mark Wahlberg and Eric Bana.

Lone Survivor will tell us the story of a Navy Seal who led a team into Afghanistan on a mission to kill a Taliban leader but was the only one to survive.

As we previously reported, the movie is based on the non-fiction book written by Marcus Luttrell, »

Final Girl Adds More Victims Including Wes Bentley

24 October 2012 8:46 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Wes Bentley, Logan Huffman, Michael Trevino, Connor Paolo and Francesca Eastwood have joined the cast of photographer-turned-film director Tyler Shields’ first foray into feature-length filmmaking, the teen slasher-themed “Final Girl”. Abigail Breslin (“Zombieland”) signed on to play the lead a while back, and will remain the final girl of the title. Alexander Ludwig (who, like, Bentley also co-starred in “The Hunger Games” — he played career tribute Cato) is also in the cast. Here’s a very Spoiler-ific synopsis for the film: Loner Veronica is new to school, shy and vulnerable the perfect target for a group of teenage boys who lure girls into the woods to hunt and kill them for sport. It’s only after they get her alone that she turns the tables on them, escaping and revealing she’s armed and knows how to defend herself. Little do they know, Veronica is an assassin-in-training, and she’s »

24 October 2012 8:01 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The "final girl" is a trope frequently used in horror movies, referring to the remaining female character left to face off against the murderer(s) or monster. In the case of Tyler Shield's upcoming film Final Girl, the female lead is intentionally set up for this scenario, but little do her attackers know, she's more than capable of taking care of herself. Even with her back to us, she gives off that impression in the new poster. ShockTillYouDrop reports that Wes Bentley, Logan Huffman, Michael Trevino, Connor Paolo and Francesca Eastwood have been added to the cast of Final Girl, joining Abigail Breslin and Alexander Ludwig. Bentley and Ludwig share The Hunger Games among their credits, with Bentley having played Seneca Crane in the feature adaptation of Suzanne Collins novel, while Ludwig played Cato, a character who knows a little something about hunting girls in the woods, and that brings »

22 October 2012 9:19 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

It's a pretty common belief among us Ya book-to-film junkies that Veronica Roth's "Divergent" is on the fast track to become the next big thing in adaptive movies.

Ludwig made his interest in the part known to the public by tweeting about a meeting he recently had with a producer on the flick: "Had an amazing meeting with Doug Wick (produced gladiator) about playing Four in Divergent. Need to get this one. Much love to the fans!"

3 October 2012 9:20 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

We all remember this guy from The Hunger Games, right? Well, guess what, Alexander Ludwig has a completely new job! He will star next to previously announced Abigail Breslin in the upcoming indie project titled Final Girl, which comes from photographer-turned-director Tyler Shields, who’s making his directorial debut with this one.

Not much is known about Final Girl, except that Adam Prince is behind the script and that the story comes from Steve Scarlata, Alejandro Seri and Johnny Silver.

The movie will center on a girl (logically) who, after being dropped into the woods and hunted by a group of teenage boys, turns the tables by hunting them.

Guess that Breslin is on board to play that girl, and as for Ludwig’s character – still no details.

Rob Carliner, Jeff Kwatinetz and Joseph and Jack Nasser will produce the pic through Nasser’s Ngn Productions and Kwatinetz and Carliner’s Prospect Park. »
