New cast members include Aunjanue Ellis (“NCIS: Los Angeles”), Colman Domingo (“Selma”), Dwight Henry (“12 Years a Slave”), Roger Guenveur Smith (“Empire State”) and Gabrielle Union (“Think Like a Man Too”).
Prompted by religious visions, Turner and a band of about 70 rebel slaves killed between 55 and 65 people in Virginia — the most ever killed in a slave uprising. The rebellion was stopped after two days, but Turner survived in hiding for more than two months.

Last fall, we learned filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers) would make his first film in the United States with a thriller called Free Fire, and he had an impressive cast that included Olivia Wilde (Rush), Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6), Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins) and also Armie Hammer (The Social Network). However, the line-up has changed slightly as Variety reports Brie Larson (21 Jump Street, Short Term 12) has taken a role, replacing Wilde, who is departing due to scheduling issues, which may be because she was just confirmed to return as Quorra in Tron 3, which starts shooting this fall in Vancouver. For those just joining us, Free Fire is a thriller set in 1978 with Larson playing a woman in Boston who brokers a meeting between two men, Murphy and Michael Smiley (a regular in Wheatley's films), and a gang led by Hammer and Evans. But the meeting turns deadly when a shootout breaks out, »

We were excited as it is for Ben Wheatley's "High-Rise," but just the cast and premise alone for his next movie — the Martin Scorsese produced "Free Fire" — now has us salivating. And another great player has joined the mix. Brie Larson is replacing Olivia Wilde in the film that already has Luke Evans, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, and Michael Smiley lined up to star. Set in Boston in 1978, and inspired by films like "The Killing," "The Big Combo, "The Driver," "Le Samourai," "The French Connection," "Goodfellas," "Casino," "Hard Boiled," "Reservoir Dogs," "The Getaway" and more, the story kicks off "in a deserted warehouse where a meeting between two gangs turns into a deadly shootout and all-out survival." Filming is expected to begin later this year. [Variety] Juliette Binoche is reteaming with her "Camille Claudel »

Wheatley's next film is Free Fire, a 70s-set crime thriller about two gangs clashing in a secluded Boston warehouse.
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions is handling distribution. Wheatley will write and direct.
“Free Fire” is set in 1978 in a deserted warehouse where a meeting between two gangs turns into a deadly shootout and all-out survival. Sources describe it in the vein of “Reservoir Dogs” with a new twist.
Protagonist Pictures will produce.
Following her breakout role in “21 Jump Street,” Larson has focused on more serious adult dramas rather than big budget tentpoles. She received rave reviews for her performance in “Short Term 12″ and appeared opposite Mark Wahlberg in “The Gambler.”
She can also be seen in A24 drama “Room, »

He might be busy finishing off his current film, J.G. Ballard adaptation High-Rise, but Ben Wheatley is already hard at work preparing for his next thriller, Free Fire. Change is afoot for the casting of the movie, with Olivia Wilde needing to drop out thanks to scheduling clashes and Brie Larson taking her place. A fair swap, if ever there was one.Free Fire, which recently secured Martin Scorsese’s services as executive producer, is planned as a hard-boiled crime film set in violence-ridden 1978 Boston. A secluded meeting between two gangs in a deserted warehouse suddenly explodes into a shoot-out and a fight for survival. Wheatley already has Luke Evans, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy and regular collaborator Michael Smiley aboard to star, and intends to start the cameras rolling in a few months. With a script by Wheatley, this one is already being talked up as a new twist on the Reservoir Dogs type setup. »
Just look at that smile! Armie Hammer and his wife, Elizabeth Chambers Hammer, just celebrated another adorable milestone with their 4-month-old daughter.

"Happy 4 month birthday to this little bunny! #HarperHammer," captioned the 32-year-old mother of one. Unlike many young babies who get nervous or cry when meeting their favorite icons, Harper looks at ease about getting in the holiday spirit. The celebritot actually appears to be enthusiastic about getting close to the fluffy blue-eyed rabbit. Too cute! For the »

Tech entrepreneurs Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss guest star in the first episode of the new season and joked on the red carpet that no, they’re not playing Armie Hammer, the actor who famously portrayed them in the film “The Social Network.”
“A long time ago, I was actually an engineer in Silicon Valley,” he said. “I was an engineer dreaming of becoming a comedy filmmaker in Hollywood and now here I am doing a show called ‘Silicon Valley.’ As we do this show, I keep thinking I »
