"Prometheus 2" is moving closer to reality. According to Variety, Jack Palgen is in talks to write the "Prometheus" sequel, which Ridley Scott will produce for Twentieth Century Fox. (Whether he directs as well is unclear.) Palgen is a new name among blockbuster screenwriters; his first credit won't happen until next year, as Palgen wrote the Johnny Depp film "Transcendence," which long-time Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister is directing as his feature debut.
As had been reported earlier, "Prometheus 2" won't be written by original co-writer Damon Lindelof. The bête noire of many internet commenters wasn't able to continue work on the "Prometheus" sequel because of prior commitments. After a report claimed that Lindelof left the project abruptly, angering Scott and Fox in the process, Lindelof cleared things up in an email to Slashfilm:
If I take on too many projects at one time, there is a higher probability of those projects sucking. »

Gary Oldman's (The Dark Knight Rises) directorial debut was the powerful drama Nil by Mouth in 1997, starring Ray Winstone (The Sweeney) and Kathy Burke (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). Now there are reports that for his follow-up he is planning to direct a biopic of the film pioneer Eadweard Muybridge titled Flying Horse.
Muybridge developed technological advances in photography and motion-capturing imagery. The film will focus on the love affair between his wife Flora and the theatre critic Harry Larkyns, who was killed by Muybridge.
Oldman has written the script and is eyeing Ralph Fiennes (Skyfall) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness) to play Muybridge and Larkyns. He might also appear himself, as the district attorney who prosecuted Muybridge.
Flying Horse is scheduled to begin production early next year and will be produced by Oldman's manager Douglas Urbanski. Oldman can next be seen in the upcoming thriller Paranoia with Liam Hemsworth and Harrison Ford. »

Japanese director Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer, 13 Assassins, Audition) is in negotiations to direct a post-World War II film called The Outsider. Miike is an incredible director, but what makes this film production even better is that Tom Hardy will be taking the lead role.
Joel Silver is producing the film, which is based on an original idea by John Linson. The story is described as being an epic that chronicles "the life of a former American G.I. who becomes part of the Japanese yakuza." The yakuza are members of the transnational organized crime syndicates in Japan and are notorious for their strict codes of conduct and very organized nature.
Hardy is blowing up as an actor right now, and he's taking on a lot of diverse roles. He next stars in Mad Max: Fury Road, Animal Rescue with Noomi Rapace, and Child 44. He's also considering playing Elton John in Rocketman. »

Most of you probably first met Tom Hardy in 2010′s Inception, unless you’re an avid consumer of British cinema, in which case perhaps you recognized him from 2008′s Bronson. Then again, a select few of you Trekkies might even remember him from 2002′s Star Trek: Nemesis. Regardless, now almost all of you identify him as Bane from 2012′s The Dark Knight Rises. But a few years from now, we might all be calling him Sir Elton.
With five movies in the works for 2014 (including a highly anticipated Mad Max reboot) and a new rumor going around that he’s »

Can you feel the what tonight? According to HitFx reporter Drew McWeeny, Tom Hardy has been approached to star in "Rocketman," a musical biopic about Elton John that John himself is executive producing. (As reported by Deadline.com back in March, Michael Gracey will direct.) Hardy, who starred as Bane in last year's "The Dark Knight Rises," hasn't received an official offer as of yet.
"Rocketman" has been in development for quite a while. John first conceived of the project back in 2011 and has envisioned the film as a type of "musical fantasy." (John's songs will be used to underscore sequences; the original Deadline.com report makes it sound like a jukebox musical writ large for the big screen.) Just after "Rocketman" was announced, James McAvoy was rumored to be a part of the film as John. No deal was ever reached.
As for Hardy, he's got quite a busy »

As the red carpets are rolled up and the screening rooms shut for another year, a final few nuggets of casting news reach us from Cannes. First, via The Wrap, is some news on “Rosewater,” the film Jon Stewart is taking 12 weeks off "The Daily Show" this summer to shoot (don’t panic, John Oliver will be hosting in his absence). Despite Stewart’s comedic day job, "Rosewater" is a drama, based on a true story about Maziar Bahari, a journalist who was detained in Iran while covering the 2009 elections there. The news: Gael Garcia Bernal has just been cast as Bahari. It seems awfully close to the start of shooting to be casting your leading man, but nevertheless Bernal has strong dramatic and political chops (“Fidel”, “No”), so this seems like a good pick.Still in international thriller territory, The Wrap is also reporting the casting of Paddy Considine »
