At 11 years old, Ty Simpkins already has quite a few credits on his resume. Simpkins has been in movies since he was barely 3 months old, and has roles in flicks such as Insidious, The Next Three Days, and Little Children. Maybe even more interesting is how many times he's been cast in films with his real life sister Ryan Simpkins - they play siblings in Revolutionary Road, Pride and Glory and Arcadia, among others.
Like many kids his age, Ty is a huge Iron Man fan. »

Rhodey isn’t Tony Stark’s only sidekick in Iron Man 3. In the threequel, Tony, while stranded in a small, snow-covered Tennessee town, gets some help from a science-savvy kid named Harley, played by young actor Ty Simpkins. As seen in the EW exclusive photo above, Harley encounters Tony when his suit is rather worse for wear.
When EW met up with Simpkins on the Disney lot to talk about Iron Man 3, the 11-year-old donned a T-shirt covered with Stormtroopers on skateboards, and tucked back on his head was the pair of Stark Industries 3-D glasses he got at the movie’s premiere. »

Everyone involved with "Jane Got a Gun" seems hellbent for leather in making the movie actually work out as another cast member has joined the getting less-troubled Western.
Gavin O'Connor is making his sudden last-minute directing gig less stressful by surrounding himself with people he's worked with before, such as new recruit Noah Emmerich, according to Deadline. "Jane Got a Gun" marks the fifth collaboration between Emmerich and O'Connor, following "Tumbleweeds," "Miracle," "Pride and Glory" and "Warrior."
Emmerich has been cast as the husband of Jane (Natalie Portman), an outlaw who comes home one day chock full of bullet holes. Hubby has become the target of a notorious gang (led by Bradley Cooper), so Jane hires the services of an ex-lover (Emmerich's "Warrior" pal Joel Edgerton) to protect him, her and their farm.

Exclusive: Noah Emmerich, whose work as a conflicted FBI agent has been a highlight of the FX Cold War series The Americans, has been set to play the final major lead role in Jane Got A Gun, the Gavin O’Connor-directed Western that stars Natalie Portman, Bradley Cooper and Joel Edgerton. Emmerich will play the outlaw husband of the title character (Portman) who is trying to keep her farm from going under. Knowing that his gang–led by a desperado played by Cooper–will come to kill her husband and destroy her farm, Jane hires her ex-lover (Edgerton) to stop them. After that rough start when director Lynne Ramsay dropped out of the film the night before it went into production, Jane Got A Gun is several weeks into production. This will be the fifth film that Emmerich has made with O’Connor, after Tumbleweeds, Miracle, Pride And Glory, and »

Warrior and Pride and Glory director Gavin O’Connor is stepping in to helm Jane Got A Gun after Lynne Ramsay shockingly exited the Western thriller yesterday when she didn’t turn up for the first day of filming, according to Deadline.
Although from the outside looking in the hiring looks to be a particularly astute one given the calibre of Ramsey’s replacement – the highly unusual ramifications of yesterday has also cost the production the services of actor Jude Law. Turning up to start work without a director in sight yesterday was enough for him to bail.
The actor himself had only just replaced originally cast Michael Fassbender who left the film last week. Screen Daily claims Fassbender left the film because he fell out with the director and this was ultimately the catalyst for the circumstances that led to Ramsay’s exit.

Okay, so "Jane" is no longer a calamity. One day after gifted Scottish director Lynne Ramsay shockingly pulled out of Natalie Portman-starring Western "Jane Got a Gun" on the very first day of shooting, her replacement has already been drafted: Gavin O'Connor, the sturdy multi-hyphenate whose films include "Tumbleweeds," "Pride and Glory" and, most recently, "Warrior." With O'Connor on board, shooting will get under way tomorrow. No time to waste. It's a smart choice, in my opinion. O'Connor is a solid, sensible craftsman who began in the independent realm and has since brought that sensibility to more mainstream projects. His 1999 »

Exclusive: When We Need To Talk About Kevin helmer Lynne Ramsay pulled a no-show and dropped out of helming Jane Got A Gun on the first day of shooting, producer and financier Scott Steindorff said they were determined to set a new director quickly and keep the picture from falling apart. Well, it looks like they’ve gotten themselves a good one. A deal is closing with Gavin O’Connor, the writer-director of Warrior, Pride And Glory, Miracle and Tumbleweeds. O’Connor will get the picture underway Thursday. Related: More Fallout On ‘Jane Got A Gun:’ Jude Law Exits Picture Considering how fragile independently financed productions can be, this is fairly remarkable that Steindorff and his fellow producers including Natalie Portman and Aleen Keshishian have managed to keep this picture from falling apart, and prevent the cast and crew from leaving the Sante Fe set and scattering to the winds. »

The Place Beyond the Pines, 2012.
Directed by Derek Cianfrance.
A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective.
Warning: Here Be Spoilers...
The Place Beyond the Pines deserves praise for its ambition to weave together three stories linked to the same event in an art house style, however the only people who will walk away from this thinking it’s anything more than a nice looking cliché are those who must have seen very few films.
Director Derek Cianfrance’s film suffocates under the weight of its own attempts to be an epic drama, spanning 15 years and three »
