Dennis Haysbert’s Manute in latest Sdcc poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

23 July 2014 2:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already seen a few posters for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For lately featuring Jessica Alba’s Nancy and Mickey Rourke’s Marv [see here and here], and now co-director Robert Rodriguez has taken to Twitter to drop a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive character poster of Dennis Haysbert (24) as Manute. Check it out…

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. »

23 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Johnny Depp was recently photographed in full prosthetics to play real-life Boston gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger in the upcoming movie Black Mass.

The 50-year-old actor was wearing a balding wig cap, fake teeth, a blue open shirt with a gold chain, and a black leather jacket as he shot the film's final scenes in Lynn, Massachusetts.

Benedict Cumberbatch recently joined the cast as Whitey Bulger's brother Billy Bulger, along with Parks and Recreation's Adam Scott, who is reported to be playing FBI agent Robert Fitzpatrick.

The Scott Cooper-directed crime drama is due for release in cinemas on September 18, 2015.

Bulger spent 16 years at large and 12 years on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list before he was arrested in June 2011, aged 81. Prosecutors indicted him for 19 murders and he is currently serving two life terms.

Here are 9 other actors morphing into some of the world's most notorious real-life gangsters below: »

Life Of Crime Review

17 July 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jumping from average romcom to average romcom with all the enthusiasm of a bored teenager slogging through their homework, Jennifer Aniston just keeps on trucking. Romcoms are all well and good for some, but ever since Friends wrapped up at the turn of the millennium her’s has been a career in slow but steady decline. To that effect, Life of Crime is actually a pretty pleasant surprise, with Aniston swapping her usual Girl Next Door role for that of a beleaguered housewife taken hostage by a trio of barely competent crooks. That’s not to say the film’s any good, but I’d much rather watch Aniston try (and largely fail) to work outside her usual range than have to sit through Along Came Polly 2: Rodolfo’s Revenge. 

Life of Crime plays out like a sub-par companion piece to David O. Russell’s American Hustle - which »

9 July 2014 1:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the third Expendables film set to hit theatres mid-August, Sylvester Stallone is already lining up his next project. The New York Post were first to scoop with the news that Stallone will reunite with producer Irwin Winkler (Rocky) to portray former mob hitman Gregory Scarpa.

Scarpa was a career criminal and mob enforcer for the Colombo family, turned FBI informant. The film will focus on his involvement in the “Mississippi Burning” case which he helped solve by allegedly pistol whipping and kidnapping a member of the Klu Klux Klan in 1964. After pleading guilty to three murders in 1993, Scarpa later died of complications from AIDS in 1994.

The film will be scripted by Mob film specialist Nicholas Pileggi (Goodfellas, Casino) and directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer, Runner Runner). All under the roof of Avi Lerner and Millennium Films who have a solid history with Stallone now.

Dwayne Johnson Eyed for Janson Directive; Sylvester Stallone Teaming Up with Brad Furman for Scarpa

8 July 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A couple of intimidating actors are lining up new projects.  Variety reports that Dwayne Johnson is in early talks to star in Universal’s adaptation of Bourne Identity author Robert Ludlum’s book The Janson Directive.  The story follows a former consular ops agent who goes into business as a private security consultant after becoming uncomfortable with the high number of sanctioned killings as a covert operative.  In his new occupation, he teams up with a sharpshooter to take on assignments that he deems worthy of aid.  Johnson is apparently keen on the project, which Universal views as a Bourne-esque franchise tailored for the actor.  Should he sign on, Johnson would also produce.  Universal is currently out to writers to put on the adaptation. Hit the jump for more on Johnson’s upcoming slate and news regarding a Sylvester Stallone project with Goodfellas pedigree. Johnson most recently wrapped work on »

Sylvester Stallone To Play A Mob Killer In Scarpa

8 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Whether he likes it or not, Sylvester Stallone is going to get out of the action movie business soon. The Expendables 3 is probably his swan song in that particular franchise, and he might be planning one last Rambo. After that, the smart move may be to transition to character work in stuff like Reach Me, playing older mentor types. But why not throw in a nasty bit of gangster stuff while we're at it? Deadline claims Stallone is re-teaming with his old friends at Millennium Films for Scarpa, a gangster drama that could start shooting early next year. From writer Nicholas Pileggi (Goodfellas), this true-crime story may have Stallone playing Gregory Scarpa, a former mob hitman who claimed he killed fifty men before dying in incarceration in 1994 of AIDS-related complications. Scarpa was a pretty nasty guy, though some people feel that way for different reasons. The world, especially the »

8 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If that trailer for Reach Me left a bad taste in your mouth, Sylvester Stallone might be able to redeem himself with a developing project at Millennium Films from The Expendables franchise producer Avi Lerner. Deadline has word that Stallone will lead Scarpa, a new organized crime thriller from The Lincoln Lawyer director Brad Furman that will tell the story of Gregory Scarpa Sr, a hitman also known as "The Grim Reaper" who was the chief enforcer of the Colombo crime family during the 70s and 80s and an FBI informant for over thirty years. And there's a writer aboard who will please fans of quality mob films as well. Nicholas Pileggi, who wrote Goodfellas and Casino for director Martin Scorsese, will write the film with the hopes of going in front of cameras before the end of 2014.
