Though I wasn’t terribly impressed with his English-language debut Safe House, I can safely say that I’m eagerly awaiting director Daniel Espinosa’s next effort, Child 44. Starring Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace (with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joel Kinnaman supporting), the film just wrapped production this past Summer and today, we finally get our first look at its stars.
Based on Tom Rob Smith’s novel of the same name, Hardy stars as Leo Stepanovich Demidov, “a Soviet police officer investigating a child killer run amok in the last days of Stalin‘s reign.” It’s important to note that the novel is the first of a trilogy, so if the film does well you can bet that we’ll be seeing these actors reprise their roles for a sequel.
As for the photos revealed today, they show off Oldman, Hardy and Rapace in costume but not much else. »

This raises an interesting question about the potential story line, with the 44-year-old Jason Clarke playing the son and the 26-year-old Emilia Clarke and 24-year-old Brie Larson in contention to play his mother. Is John going back in time to save Sarah? Or will we see flashbacks? While no story details have been confirmed, the plot reportedly involves time travel into the future.
Jason Clarke is fast emerging as an outstanding acting talent. The intense Australian actor is finally being given the opportunities to lead major box-office hits with upcoming roles in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and Child 44. This following impressive turns in this years Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby and White House Down. Fans of his are sure to be excited as he’s currently in final negotiations to lead upcoming franchise reboot/sequel Terminator: Genesis.
If a deal is reached, he’s take the role of John Connor in the time-travelling film that will split the timeline of the 1984 original film and allow it to follow as a brand new story, as well as play in the same universe as the sequels. Arnold Schwarzenegger remains attached to the film which is being directed by Thor: The Dark World’s Alan Taylor. Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson »

We might still be waiting to hear about the new Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke is said to be the front-runner, with Brie Larson still in contention too), but "Terminator 5" has found her on-screen son. While Tom Hardy was said to be the target for the role of John Connor (played by Edward Furlong, Nick Stahl and Christian Bale in the previous films), Skydance and Annapurna Pictures' reboot, "Terminator: Genesis," it's the actor's co-star in "Lawless," and the upcoming "Child 44," Jason Clarke who's won out, according to Deadline. The Australian-born Clarke's become an increasingly in-demand actor after his breakout role in "Zero Dark Thirty" last year: he popped up in "The Great Gatsby" and "White House Down" this year, plays the human lead in next summer's tentpole "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes," and will star with Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and John Hawkes in Baltasar Kormakur's "Everest. »

I guess you could assume a little about what Terminator 5, or Terminator: Genesis as it will apparently be called, as Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) has reportedly landed the role of John Connor. Meanwhile, Emilia Clarke ("Game of Thrones") and Brie Larson (Short Term 12) are on a short list competing for the role of Sarah Connor. Considering John is Sarah's son and Jason Clarke is 44-years-old while both Emilia Clarke and Larson are both in their mid-20s it suggests just where exactly in time the franchise reboot may take place. Sounding as if a future John Connor may be sent back to save his mother. The film is already slated for a July 1, 2015 release with Alan Taylor (Thor: THe Dark World) set to direct and Arnold Schwarzenegger expected to return as his iconic cyborg character. Notable upcoming roles for Clarke include Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Child 44, »

According to the producers, the feature “focuses on how far decent human beings are willing to go, when tragedy blurs the line between just and unjust and how easily we lose our grasp on justice, when we face the unthinkable and life as we know it hangs by a thread.”

The constantly busy Ridley Scott always has lots of potential films in production, so here's a look at what he might be up to next...
Since his debut in 1977 with the historical drama, The Duellists, director Ridley Scott has gradually built up an eclectic body of work. His Hollywood career began with the stunning one-two sci-fi punch of Alien and Blade Runner, before heading off into fantasy (Legend), thrillers (Someone To Watch Over Me, Black Rain) and road-trip drama (the Oscar-winning Thelma And Louise).
As James Clayton pointed out in his recent Friday column, the 70-something Sir Ridley shows no sign of slowing down, and if anything, his slate of forthcoming films is somewhat bewildering - in what seems like every other interview, the director will mention another project of one sort or another, which makes working out what he's likely to be »
Italian distribution company Adler Entertainment is making its Afm debut with ambitious plans to release between 15 and 18 titles a year, just as the country’s movie market is in flux following a drastic downsizing of Silvio Berlusconi’s Medusa film unit.
Unlike Eagle, which was purchased by Franco Tunisian entrepreneur Tarak Ben Ammar in 2007 after Italo banks claimed it had become financially overexposed, Adler is financed by private capital.“Italy is a very strange market, full of opportunity right now,” says Dammicco, noting that neither the majors nor anyone else has stepped in to fill the gap left by Medusa since the Italo box office has been sagging partly due to the country’s economic crisis. That, in turn, has caused pic »

Noomi Rapace will take on seven roles in What Happened to Monday?
The film centres around the seven sisters who must keep their existence a secret in a future, overpopulated world with a strict one-child policy.
They must overcome their differences and work together to save one of their own and escape governmental execution.
Although original written with a male lead in mind, the screenplay was reworked for Rapace.
We first reported on this project back in December 2011, when Norwegian director Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) was attached to make his English-language debut, although he is no long involved. The story is set in an overpopulated world where each family is only allowed one child. Noomi Rapace is actually playing seven different roles as identical septuplet sisters, who try to remain hidden from the government. The lead role/roles were initially envisioned as seven brothers before Noomi Rapace came onboard.
Here's what Tommy Wirkola had to say about his leading lady.
"I was struck by the complexities of having an actor portray seven characters and immediately knew Noomi was the ideal actor - male or female - to bring them to life."
Noomi Rapace will star in sci-fi drama “What Happened to Monday?” in multiple roles as septuplet sisters.
Rapace will portray sisters who struggle to stay hidden in an overpopulated world where a one-child policy outlaws siblings.
“Although the role was originally written for a male, I was struck by the complexities of having an actor portray seven characters and immediately knew Noomi was the ideal actor – male or female – to bring them to life,” said Wirkola.

Breaking: Noomi Rapace has teamed with Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters helmer Tommy Wirkola for What Happened To Monday? The script, which made the Black List, was written by Max Botkin. Rapace will play the multiple roles of septuplet sisters who struggle to stay hidden in an overpopulated world were a one-child policy outlaws siblings. Wirkola said he originally envisioned the protagonist(s) as male, but “I was struck by the complexities of having an actor portray seven characters and immediately knew Noomi was the ideal actor – male or female – to bring them to life,” Wirkola said in a statement. That puts the breakout star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in the rare company of female talent like Angelina Jolie, who succeeded Tom Cruise as the star of Salt. Raffaella De Laurentiis is producing through Raffaella Productions, along with Vendome’s Philippe Rousselet. Vendome is also financing the film. »
