Helen Mirren May Join Bryan Cranston In Jay Roach's Daltron Trumbo Biopic

14 April 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Between films like Hitchcock, The Last Station, The Madness of King George and The Queen, heralded English actress Helen Mirren has established a storied history of portraying historical figures with grace and gravity. So it's little wonder that she's been tapped to co-star in the upcoming biopic about blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. Variety reports Mirren has entered into negotiations to appear opposite Bryan Cranston in the biopic, which will simply be titled Trumbo. Should she sign on to the film, Mirren would play wife Cleo to Cranston's titular protagonist. Surprisingly, this biopic that seems suited to rousing drama is set to be helmed by Jay Roach, best known as the director of Meet the Parents and Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. Dalton Trumbo was an accomplished screenwriter in the 1930s and '40s, penning pictures like the romantic drama A Man To Remember and the biopic The Flying Irishman. »

First Image and Official Synopsis for The Forger Starring John Travolta, Christopher Plummer, and Tye Sheridan

11 February 2014 9:40 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As acquisitions and sales at the Berlin Film Festival continue, the first image and synopsis have been released for Philip Martin's The Forger.  According to the synopsis, the movie" tells the story of a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief, Ray Cutter (John Travolta) who arranges to buy his way out of prison to spend time with his ailing son, Will Cutter (Tye Sheridan). Ray and his father, Joseph Cutter (Christopher Plummer), must come together to carry out one last big job for the syndicate who financed his early release."  I'm a bit confused by this synopsis.  If you were an art prodigy, then wouldn't you commit counterfeiting instead of petty thievery?  That's like being a guitar prodigy and deciding to play the slide whistle. Hit the jump for the image and press release. Here's the press release: Genre: Heist Status: Post-production Producers: Al Corley, Bart Rosenblatt, »
