Mad Max: Fury Road costume designer joins Gambit movie

With a new director on board in Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) and a release date of Valentine’s Day 2019 set, it seems that 20th Century Fox’s long-delayed Gambit movie is really starting to pick up steam.

According to Omega Underground, the project has now enlisted Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan, whose previous credits include the Academy Award-winning The King’s Speech and Mad Max: Fury Road. Beaven has also previously worked with Verbinski, with the pair having collaborated on this year’s A Cure for Wellness.

Gambit: release date confirmed, Gore Verbinski directing

Ryan Lambie Simon Brew Oct 13, 2017

Pirates Of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is confirmed as the director of Gambit, and the X-Men spin-off now has a release date...

A project that has dipped in and out of the news so often we'd long since begun to think it would never happen, the Gambit movie now looks as though it's finally moving ahead. Pirates Of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski has now formally signed up as director, and will be working from a script written by Josh Zetumer. Unless something mysterious has happened behind the scenes, Channing Tatum's still on board in the title role.

Gambit even has a release date: the 14th February - now 20th Century Fox's favourite month, we're guessing, after the huge success of Deadpool. Will Tatum's superhero spin-off gain quite the same traction? We've a fair while before we find out.

Until then, we'll

Four New Promos For Kingsman: The Golden Circle Trigger The Doomsday Protocol

Ready to enter The Golden Circle?

Four news promos for 20th Century Fox and Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman sequel deployed over the course of the weekend, and we’ve gathered every last snippet for your viewing pleasure. Embedded above (and below!), we’re pleased to report that these high-octane teasers retain that signature tongue-in-cheek humor, along with the super-stylish action scenes that helped ensure The Secret Service became one of the breakout hits of 2014.

This time around, however, the Kingsman will be operating on a global scale. As part of her transition into a full-blown megalomaniac – “America’s sweetheart gone wrong,” as Matthew Vaughn so aptly putit – Julianne Moore’s Poppy wages war on the British spy organization, and launches a Wmd that blows their ostentatious headquarters to kingdom come. Left licking their wounds, Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and Merlin (Mark Strong) then travel across the pond to forge an alliance with the Statesman,

Dances With Films 2017 Interview: Director Adam Ripp on Devil’S Whisper

  • DailyDead
This weekend marks the final days of the 2017 Dances With Film festival being held at the Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. Later tonight, director Adam Ripp’s supernaturally themed thriller Devil’s Whisper will be enjoying its world premiere at the historic cinema.

Ripp is no stranger to the world of indie filmmaking, as he’s produced movies like Joe Lynch’s Everly and Gambit, and has both directed and produced in the world of television. His newest project follows a teenager named Alex (Luca Oriel) who crosses paths with a mysterious box containing a demonic presence, and he mistakenly unleashes the sinister spirit, which wreaks havoc on Alex’s life and forces him to confront the evil that looks to consume his very soul.

During our interview, Ripp discussed the inspiration behind his approach to Devil’s Whisper, finding Oriel for his lead, and more.

How to fix the X-Men Cinematic Universe

Anghus Houvouras on how Fox can fix the X-Men: Cinematic Universe…

Fox has been cultivating the X-Men cinematic universe for nearly two decades. It’s been that long since fans were first treated to Marvel’s most magnanimous mutants on the big screen. The first X-Men movie wasn’t perfect, but it was a solid first entry into what would become a wildly disjointed franchise that struggled to find its place in an era of endless comic book adaptations. That seems strange when you remember that X-Men kind of kicked off the comic book movie trend of the 21st century. And yet, even with an eight year head start, Fox has been unable to capitalize. The X-Men franchise still lacks a clear and concise direction.

That has changed somewhat in the last year after Deadpool was released and donkey punched expectations. With much fanfare and little faith from Fox, the

Get Out Producer Jason Blum on Jordan Peele’s Directorial Debut

  • LRM Online
There are few producers who have had the overwhelming success of Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions from their early days turning Oren Peli’s low-budget Paranormal Activity into a hugely profitable franchise, followed by the equally successful Insidious and The Purge movies. Jason Blum also has an Oscar nomination notched onto his career belt for his involvement in getting Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-nominated Whiplash made, and Blumhouse were involved with bringing Jem and the Holograms to movie theaters. (Sorry, but I actually kind of liked it, even though it bombed… big time.)

Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out will be the third time Blumhouse has worked with an actor making their transition into directing, as Jason Blum handled the same duties on Joel Edgerton’s The Gift and Leigh Whannell’s Insidious: Chapter 3 a few years back.

Get Out is a very different movie in which Daniel Kaluuya

Coen Brothers Bring Pens To ‘Scarface’ Remake, Universal Eyes Replacements For Antoine Fuqua

Over the past few years, the Coen Brothers have been happy to work on scripts for other directors. They penned “Gambit” starring Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz (which you probably forgot existed), put their touches on Angelina Jolie‘s “Unbroken” and Steven Spielberg‘s “Bridge Of Spies,” wrote George Clooney‘s forthcoming “Suburbicon,” signed up to write the internet thriller “Dark Web,” and now they’ve got another project they’ll give their Midas touch.

Joel and Ethan Coen Take on the Cyber Thriller with ‘Dark Web’

Following writing-not-directing trend set by Gambit, Unbroken, Bridge of Spies, and George Clooney’s upcoming Suburbicon, Joel and Ethan Coen have signed with Fox and Chernin Entertainment for Dark Web, an entry into everyone’s favorite genre: the cyber thriller! While something about the Coen brothers’ films and public temperament makes it difficult for me to even picture them using a computer, let alone scripting something about any specific technological culture, they have a precedent in a two–part Wired article that details Ross William Ulbricht, known in some circles as Dread Pirate Roberts, a young man whose Amazon-like venue for illegal items blossomed — and who, of course, was eventually taken down, but not before (possibly) having a lot of people killed. [THR]

Dennis Lehane had penned a draft for the project, which was originally set up in 2013. There’s no indication that, unlike some previous assignments, Dark Web will be

Iron Man & The Big Lebowski Star Jeff Bridges Joins Kingsman: The Golden Circle

"The only Golden Circle I want vexing me is the one my glass leaves behind on the table." 20th Century Fox's eagerly awaited summer 2017 release Kingsman: The Golden Circle is really amassing quite the cast and they've just added another very interesting piece in Academy Award-winner Jeff Bridges.  Bridges himself made the annoucement on his personal Twitter account earlier this afternoon with his own very cool teaser poster and while, details on his character are scarce at the moment, it's likely he'll be one of the American Kingsmen the upcoming Matthew Vaughn-directed film is expected to introduce. He now becomes the latest addition to a cast that's already added Julianne Moore (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay), Halle Berry (X-Men), Channing Tatum (Gambit), Pedro Pascal (Game Of Thrones), and Sir Elton John (The Lion King). Returners from the first installment include Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, and Edward Holcroft.

First Glimpse Of Channing Tatum Looking Dapper On The Set Of Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Early last month, Channing Tatum (Gambit, Mercury Rising) announced that he'd joined the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and now thanks to Coming Soon we have our first look at him in costume on the London set of the sequel. Though his character remains unnamed, we do know he'll be playing an American agent of some description, and from the looks of things he's been visiting the same tailor as Colin Firth's Harry Hart - who is expected to return despite seemingly being killed off in the first film. Kingsman: The Golden Circle also stars Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, Edward Holcroft, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, and Sir Elton John. The movie is set to hit theaters on June 16, 2017.

Channing Tatum Joins 'Kingsman 2'
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is still getting its cast together. And boy, what a cast this will be. Already announced are Julianne Moore, Halle Berry and original star Taron Egerton. Elton John is in talks to possibly play himself. And now, Channing Tatum has boarded the sequel. The actor made the announcement himself on his personal Twitter Account.

There is no word yet on which character Channing Tatum will take on. Though, it sounds like he is set to play a southerner with good manners. The movie is directed by original Kingsman: The Secret Service director Matthew Vaughn. The tweet came with the second in what appears to be a series of teaser posters. The tagline on this particular poster reads as such.

"My momma always told me the British gave us Southerners our good manners."

It was revealed just earlier this week that icon Sir Elton John is in talks for a role.

  • LRM Online

Channing Tatum On Board For Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Casting is well underway on Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle it seems. After hearing earlier this week that Elton John had come on board, we’re now learning from Deadline that Channing Tatum is also joining the impressive cast, which already includes Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry and Pedro Pascal, among others.

No word yet on who Tatum may play, but it’s likely that he’ll be one of the American agents. It’s also likely that he was able to take the part because Gambit has been delayed. That film won’t go into production until later in 2016, while Kingsman: The Golden Circle is set to start shooting in a few weeks.

Plot details are still scarce for the follow-up to 20th Century Fox’s smash hit, but given that almost the entire team from the first film is returning, there

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Adds Gambit Star Channing Tatum

20th Century Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle is really assembling quite the cast. Just moments ago, Channing Tatum revealed, via Twitter, that he's also landed a role in the eagerly awaited sequel to the 2014 Matthew Vaughn-directed sleeper hit.  Variety corroborated the story and while neither source was able to provide details on his role, based on the teaser poster below, it's safe to say he's likely playing an American. He's now the latest addition to a top-notch cast that features the returns of Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, & Edward Holcroft and has already added Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, and Sir Elton John.  Vaughn is returning to direct the sequel, which kicks off production in a few weeks.

Sources also tell Variety that Elton John is in talks for a key role.

Matthew Vaughn is returning to direct from a script he co-wrote with Jane Goldman. The 2014 original, “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” was based on the comic-book “The Secret Service,” created by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar, and follows the training of a potential secret agent to take on a global threat from Samuel L. Jackson’s Richmond Valentine.

Vaughn also produced the original, which grossed a surprisingly healthy $415 million worldwide. Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Michael Caine also starred.

Stanley Tucci remembers Alan Rickman: 'My heart aches with loss'

Tucci, who co-starred in Rickman’s second film as director, has paid tribute to ‘one of the most generous friends’, who was strikingly kind to Tucci’s Harry Potter-loving children

The actor Stanley Tucci, who made a memorable supporting performance in Alan Rickman’s final film behind the camera, has paid tribute to “a wonderful actor and director”. Tucci also called Rickman, who died on Thursday, “most importantly, behind his wry imperiousness, one of the kindest people and one of the most generous friends I have had the great fortune to know”.

Tucci played the flamboyant Duke of Orléans in last year’s period romance A Little Chaos, in which Rickman also featured as Louis Xiv. They also co-starred in 2012s Gambit. But the pair had been friends since 2010, after meeting in a New York bar when both were directing plays on Broadway.

X-Men: Apocalypse - breaking down the new trailer

The first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse drops lots of clues for the movie. Let's take a look in some detail...

After months of waiting, Fox has released the first proper trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse, the third (and final) instalment in its X-Men: First Class movie series. Although the teaser at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past seemed promising, it’s fair to say that reaction to the production stills have been mixed. Does this new glimpse of the movie put you at ease? And what can we learn from it?

Archangel

Previously seen in X-Men: The Last Stand, Warren Worthington (aka Angel) was famously transformed (in the comics) into the horseman Death by Apocalypse, who replaced his recently-amputated wings with new metal ones that could fire razor-sharp feathers at his enemies. I think we can safely say this movie will be operating along similar lines.

George Clooney Set To Helm Coen Brothers Script Suburbicon

It’s a project that has been rumoured for the best part of a decade, but it seems that the pieces are finally falling into place for Suburbicon – an as-yet unproduced script by Academy Award winners Joel and Ethan Coen. This time, however, it will not be the celebrated siblings calling the shots – it will be their now regular collaborator, George Clooney.

Suburbicon has remained a mystery – an almost mythical concept, the existence of which has only ever been confirmed by fleeting whispers on the Hollywood breeze. It has always generated interest, though, because it promises to be a return to the tone of the very first feature film directed by the Coen Brothers – Blood Simple. In conversation, it has always been characterized as a 1950s noirish crime drama, so the question becomes, will handing it over to another filmmaker be a help or a hindrance to this long awaited project?
