15 February 2017 10:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Screenwriter Mark Boal and producer Megan Ellison are reportedly looking to bring a film based on the 2016 presidential election to screens. The news comes from solid source Deadline who say that the duo are describing as a “political drama” of between eight and 10 hours.

Boal is the man behind the likes of Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker, so don’t expect some sub-par soapy drama. The additional news to this is that Baol will make his directorial debut on the ambitious project. The trade blog says that Hugo Lindgren, a former editor of the New York Times magazine is assembling a group of investigative journalists in New York and Washington D.C. as contributors to the project.

We don;t have much more at the moment, but we’ll bring you more as we get it.

Mark Boal And Megan Ellison Creating Series About The Us Election

15 February 2017 3:38 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was only a matter of time before somebody in Hollywood went to work on the 2016 U.S Presidential Election – beyond spirited speeches at awards ceremonies, that is. Unsurprisingly, it seems that among the first out of the gate will be a project created by Mark Boal and Megan Ellison – the writer-producer team behind Zero Dark Thirty. The surprising part is that this project is being envisioned as a series, rather than a feature film.

For her part, producer Megan Ellison – an Academy Award nominee – has built an impressive career bringing a diverse range of films to the big screen. Her resume includes notable titles such as True Grit, Zero Dark Thirty, The Master, Her, American Hustle, Foxcatcher, The Bad Batch, Everybody Wants Some!!, and 20th Century Women. For his part, freelance journalist-turned-screenwriter Mark Boal has made it his business to bring challenging, real subject matter to the big screen, »

Av Club ignoring that nobody on god's green earth could possibly want to relive the election fiasco of 2016, Megan Ellison and Mark Boal (Zero Dark Thirty) are developing a miniseries about it right now. Too soon.

Crime Drama Triple Frontier Eyeing Mahershala Ali

14 February 2017 4:28 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mahershala Ali is a busy bee. After breaking into Hollywood’s big leagues through eye-catching performances in Netflix staples like House of Cards and Luke Cage, the actor is arguably one of the most in-demand stars of the moment, and Ali’s scenery-chewing work as Moonlight‘s volatile crack dealer Juan was duly honored with a SAG Award late last month.

Currently filming his part in Alita: Battle Angel, The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that Mahershala Ali has now entered negotiations to board Triple Frontier, the crime saga to be directed by J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year). Talks are ongoing, but should a deal place, Ali will star opposite Channing Tatum and Taboo‘s Tom Hardy, who each closed their respective deals back in January.
