‘Roman J. Israel, Esq’ Trailer: Denzel Washington Lawyers Up

Three years ago we were treated to screenwriter Dan Gilroy‘s (“Real Steel,” “The Bourne Legacy,” “Kong: Skull Island“) directorial debut in the flawed but thoroughly chilling “Nightcrawler.” That film scored a writing nomination at the Academy Awards and got Jake Gyllenhaal nominated for a Best Actor Golden Globe.

Uncharted Movie Wants Bryan Cranston

  • MovieWeb
Sony has been trying for years to get the Uncharted movie off the ground, but they have a solid team in place right now. Shawn Levy (Real Steel) has been tapped to direct and, earlier this year, it was revealed that Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland is going to play a young version of Nathan Drake. Now, it sounds like Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is circling the long-awaited video game adaptation in an unspecified role.

The news comes courtesy of That Hashtag Show, who report that Sony is currently pursuing Bryan Cranston for a "large supporting role" in the Uncharted movie. While there's no word on who Cranston is going to play, it is possible he could be playing Victor Sullivan. The age gap between Cranson and Tom Holland could make that tricky, but there's no arguing that he would probably kill the role. That Hashtag Show also notes

This horror slash comedy flick stars Evangeline Lilly, of Lost and Real Steel fame, and Adam Scott, popular from Parks and Recreation and Step Brothers.

Ant-Man And The Wasp: Evangeline Lilly Is Marvel's Unsung Female Co-Lead

  • LRM Online
With all of the hype and excitement over Marvel's first female-led superhero film, Captain Marvel, it might be easy to overlook the fact that Carol Danvers isn't the only female headliner in the McU. Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), daughter of uber-scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and partner to rehabilitated criminal Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), is the Wasp -- a crucially-important Marvel character who was a founding member of the Avengers (in the comics, of course).

Director Peyton Reed's upcoming Ant-Man and The Wasp is a pure team-up movie, and while it's obviously not led by Van Dyne, she's clearly the co-lead in this film -- it's really unfortunate that this isn't getting more coverage. Lilly has carved out a really interesting career since her breakout role in ABC's Lost TV series; she's appeared in The Hurt Locker (2008), Real Steel (2011), and two of the Hobbit films -- in each

Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo reteaming with Nightcrawler’s Dan Gilroy

Deadline is reporting that writer-director Dan Gilroy is set to reteam with his Nightcrawler stars Jake Gyllenhall and Rene Russo for a new project set in the art world.

According to the site, the project is being shopped to interested parties, with multiple buyers said to be interested. A deal is expected to be closed soon.

Gilroy, a screenwriter on the likes of Real Steel and The Bourne Legacy, made his directorial debut with 2014’s Nightcrawler. He is following that up with a legal drama entitled Inner City, which stars Denzel Washington, Colin Farrell, Carmen Ejogo and Nazneen Contractor.

Gyllenhaal is currently shooting Jacques Audiard’s The Sisters Brothers, and will soon move on to the David Gordon Green-directed Stronger. Russo meanwhile recently completed filming on Villa Capri, which is directed by Ron Shelton.

Tom Holland Is Fancasting Chris Pratt In HIs Own 'Uncharted'

  • Movies.com
Uncharted the video game is about the treasure-hunting adventures of Nathan Drake, a man in his 30s, and Sully, his grey-haired mentor. Uncharted the movie, however, is going to be about a much younger Nathan Drake, who we recently learned will be played by Tom Holland. And apparently the switch was Holland's idea. Movie studios love to cultivate ongoing relationships with their big stars. Holland is anchoring Spider-Man: Homecoming for Sony, who owns Uncharted. Naturally studio head Tom Rothman asked Holland about what else they could work on. That's when Holland, who would have been a young teen when the first Uncharted came out, pitched them the young Nathan Drake idea that director Shawn Levy (Real Steel) is now moving forward with. That's not the only idea...

Tom Holland Takes Lead In Uncharted

  • TheMovieBit
Spider-Man: Homecoming hasn’t even hit the cinemas yet, but Sony seem to have a lot of faith in young star Tom Holland that they are willing to thrust him to the fore of another big franchise, this time as the lead in the big screen adaption of the best selling Playstation vide game series, Uncharted, according to Deadline. This particular project has been doing the rounds in Hollywood for years with David O. Russell (Three Kings, Joy) and Joe Carnahan (Narc, The A-Team), amongst many others, attached at one point. In fact, Carnahan had written the most recent draft of the script for director Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Real Steel), envisioning it as an R-Rated adventure flick. While Levy is still on board, this most recent draft is being rewritten to de-age the hero, roguish Indiana Jones-alike Nathan Drake, presenting an origin story as he grows into his role as a famed treasure hunter.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Star Tom Holland To Play Young Nathan Drake In Long-Awaited Uncharted Film

  • LRM Online
What a long and convoluted journey to film Uncharted has had. Like many video game movies in the mix, Uncharted seems to be in a constant state of start-and-go when it comes to their movies. One minute we hear cast, script, and directing news regarding a long-awaited film, only for it to disappear from radar of the course of the next few years. Uncharted has long since fallen victim to that trend. When last we heard, Real Steel and Stranger Things director Shawn Levy was on board to helm the video game adaptation, but as expected, things seem to have gone radio silent.

However, this latest news may be exactly what this film needs to get its production into high gear. According to Deadline, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland has signed on to play a young Nathan Drake in the Uncharted film. That’s right. Rather than go the more traditional,

Amblin Sci-Fi Pic The Fall Sets Shawn Levy To Direct

Director Shawn Levy and his 21 Laps production banner continue to reap the fruit of a landmark 2016.

Both parties were heavily involved in the production and subsequent release of Arrival and Netflix’s nostalgic phenomenon, Stranger Things, and we’re already caught wind of multiple projects gaining traction under 21 Laps, such as The Darkest Minds and the star-studded drama Kodachrome. Heck, Levy is also attached to Sony’s long-brewing Uncharted movie, which has appointed Joe Carnahan on script duties.

Now, Deadline is reporting that Shawn Levy and 21 Laps are joining forces with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin to stage The Fall, a sci-fi pic that tells its alien invasion through the lens of a squabbling, newly-divorced couple. Pete Bridges is the creative mind behind the original spec script, though we understand Levy will now oversee a quick rewrite before the cameras begin rolling.

Power Rangers TV Spot Hints at Rita Repulsa's Past Life as a Ranger
Lionsgate has released three new TV spots for the highly-anticipated Power Rangers movie, which arrives days after a new Power Rangers international trailer. One of these new TV spots shows how some of the Rangers met during detention, with Rj Cyler's Billy Cranston, a.k.a. The Blue Ranger, revealing he was sent to detention for "blowing up his lunchbox," which was apparently quite a bigger explosion than planned. We also see Dacre Montgomery's Red Ranger activating his sword while leaping into battle, along with more footage of Goldar and the Zords.

Perhaps the biggest reveal is the spot featuring Rita Repulsa. She claims to have killed Rangers before. But in an even bigger twist, she says she was once like them, full of hope. This line has many speculating that she actually is the former Green Ranger, which has long been speculated. Especially since she is confirmed
