Her Sundance preemed Cold Souls, a zany, wry and at times acidic wink to Being John Malkovich-like and homage to Woody Allen was an overlooked oddity that worked with discriminating tastes and received a chickpea sized reception. A long six years later, we hope that her sophomore portrait and take on an a French classic feels fresh and falls along the lines of what Wuthering Heights turned out like under Andrea Arnold’s guise. Re-teaming with her hubby dp Andrij Parekh, Madame Bovary will definitely look the part and hopefully with the Ezra Miller and Mia Wasikowska pairing will bring us characters occupying hazardous emotional spaces. »

Whether they're bleak, shocking or sad, the endings to these 22 movies have haunted us for years...
Warning: There are spoilers to the endings for every film we talk about in this article. So if you don't want to know an ending for a film, then don't read that entry.
It's probably best to start by talking about what this article isn't. It's not a list of the best movie endings, the best twists, the most depressing endings or anything like that. Instead, we're focusing here on the endings that seeped into our brain and stayed there for some time after we'd seen the film. The endings that provoke in an interesting way, and haunt you for days afterwards.
As such, whilst not every ending we're going to talk about here is a flat out classic - although lots of them are »

• Garrett Hedlund, who starred in Tron: Legacy and has a small role in Inside Llewyn Davis, has been offered the role of Hook in Anna Karenina director Joe Wright’s Pan. The Warner Bros. project, penned by Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift), will have a new take on J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan tale. In the origin story, Hook is (initially at least) Pan’s ally. According to the report, Hedlund beat out Jack Huston and Ezra Miller for the role. Hugh Jackman is still in contention for the part of Blackbeard. The film is already set for a June 26, 2015, release. »

Tron: Legacy co-star Garrett Hedlund has landed the lead role of Hook in director Joe Wright's Peter Pan film, Pan. It will be a new take on the J.M. Barrie classic novel. He will join Hugh Jackman who will be playing Blackbeard.
According to Deadline, the role came down to three actors, Hedlund, Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston, and Ezra Miller from The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. Personally I think they should have went with Huston. I'm not sure why they went with Hedlund. He's a talented actor, but I don't really see him in the role of Hook.
The script is coming from Jason Fuchs, and the story follows an orphan who is taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against evil pirates.
Warner Bros has set a release date of June 16th, 2015, and it will be shot in 3D. »

Last month, we reported that Hugh Jackman was in talks to play Blackbeard in Joe Wright's Peter Pan origin story, Pan, and now it looks like Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy) will be signing on to play Hook. Per the film's logline, the story is about "an orphan [who] is taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against the evil pirates." According to Deadline, Hedlund beat out Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) and Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) for the role. Deadline says "Hook" is a lead role, but doesn't specify if he's a captain in this origin story. Pan will open in 3D on July 17, 2015. Hedlund will be seen in theaters later this year in William Monahan's Mojave and Angelina Jolie's Unbroken. »

The actor beat out others such as Jack Huston (American Hustle) and Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) for the coveted role. We reported in December that Hugh Jackman entered negotiations to play Blackbeard, after Javier Bardem passed on the iconic character.
The script, written by Jason Fuchs, follows the young orphan Peter Pan, who is taken to Neverland for the first time, as he leads the locals in a rebellion against the pirates. Captain Hook starts out as an ally to Peter Pan before turning to his villainous ways.
When Warner Bros. shifted "Batman vs. Superman" (or whatever it's going to end up being called) from a primo summer 2015 slot to a more manageable summer 2016 position, it moved an even more interesting project into its place -- "Pan," a fantastical retelling of J.M. Barrie's "Peter Pan" by "Hanna" and "Anna Karenina" filmmaker Joe Wright. While much of the cast has yet to be finalized (with Hugh Jackman and Javier Bardem in the running to play Blackbeard), one key piece of the casting puzzle has been wedged forcibly into place -- they have found their Captain Hook!
Garrett Hedlund, who most recently played a minor but memorable role in the Coens' wonderful "Inside Lewyn Davis," has been tasked with the job of bringing Captain Hook to life for Wright and company, according to a report on Deadline. Hedlund also starred in "Tron Legacy" and was really great in the otherwise lousy "On the Road. »

We know Hugh Jackman will play the villainous Blackbeard, but now Deadline report that Warner Bros. and director Joe Wright may have found their "Hook". It seems Garrett Hedlund has been offered the role, although the site make no indication as to whether he's accepted or not. They also mention that Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower's Ezra Miller were also being considered. The script was written by Jason Fuchs and will be produced by Greg Berlanti. We recently found out that Pan took Man Of Steel 2's original release date of July 17, 2015.

Youth Runs Wild! continues at Trailers from Hell, with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing Lynne Ramsay's mother-son nightmare "We Need to Talk About Kevin," starring Tilda Swinton and Ezra Miller.Lynne Ramsey’s chilling 2012 Us-British horror film, about a young sociopath whose sadistic disposition turns murderous, skirts the line between exploitation and art. Tilda Swinson plays Kevin’s tragically ineffectual mother and John C. Reilly co-stars as his oblivious father. Both the long-gestating film and Swinson nabbed several awards including the Palme d’Or at Cannes and BAFTA’s Best Actress prize. »

Just one day after Jason Momoa's Batman Vs. Superman casting rumor was shot down, another unconfirmed story has emerged that Josh Holloway is being "strongly considered" for an unspecified role in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.
There is speculation that he might be playing Aquaman, although that has not been confirmed by DC Comics or Warner Bros. However, with the inclusion of Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), it's possible that the studio is setting the table for their long-awaited Justice League movie. It wouldn't be terribly surprising to see Aquaman show up in this adventure for even just a cameo.
The problem with this casting rumor is that Josh Holloway seems a little too perfect for Aquaman. Jason Momoa would have been the less conventional choice. And that's where this franchise currently keeps landing, delivering one controversial cast member after the next. Also, we heard »
Last month, we reported that Jason Momoa was in talks for an unspecified role in Batman Vs. Superman, which was speculated to be either the villains Doomsday or Martian Manhunter. However, during a recent interview, the actor revealed that he is not involved in director Zack Snyder's superhero sequel.
"It's just rumors. I want to say something amazing, but I can't comment on rumors. It's flattering. I'm not involved in it."
When asked if, due to his massive stature, it seems like a "no-brainer" that he would star in a superhero film, he said that's possibly how the rumor got started.
"Maybe that's how it came out. Maybe someone said, 'You should be in this!' and I said, 'Yeah that would be great!' And it just went too far."
He also talked briefly about auditioning for Guardians of the Galaxy for the role of Drax the Destroyer, »
