Back in March 2013, producer Joel Silver announced that an Escape from New York reboot is in the works, although we haven't heard anything about the project since then. According to a new report from Starlog, Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam is the front runner to play the iconic Snake Plissken, with Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) and Dan Stevens (The Guest) also in contention.
Snake will reportedly be leading a team in this reboot. Here's what the site's unidentified source had to say about the story.
"(It's) more team-based, as Snake Plissken traverses through a treacherous New York landscape with a rogues gallery of criminals who look to leave the island-turned-prison in exchange for the rescue of the captured U.S. President. Plissken's team consists of Mina, a warzone journalist framed for murder and living in the shadows of New York as a scavenger; Cabbie, a schizophrenic travel guide »

Watch the latest footage that shows how Charming, California will be turned into a war zone when Sons of Anarchy returns to FX.
Sons of Anarchy is an adrenalized drama with darkly comedic undertones that explores a notorious outlaw motorcycle club's (Mc) desire to protect its livelihood while ensuring that their simple, sheltered town of Charming, California remains exactly that, charming. The Mc must confront threats from drug dealers, corporate developers, and overzealous law officers. Behind the Mc's familial lifestyle and legally thriving automotive shop is a ruthless and illegal arms business driven by the seduction of money, power, and blood.

Charlie Hunnam ("Pacific Rim," "Sons of Anarchy"), Dan Stevens ("The Guest," "Downton Abbey") and Jon Bernthal ("The Wolf of Wall Street," "The Walking Dead") are the names rumored to be up for the role of Snake Plissken in the proposed "Escape From New York" remake at Silver Pictures and StudioCanal.
The report comes from Starlog which also says the new film will be less focused on one man and more an ensemble piece. It will, however, retain the central premise of the John Carpenter-directed original:
"[It's] more team-based, as Snake Plissken traverses through a treacherous New York landscape with a rogues gallery of criminals who look to leave the island-turned-prison in exchange for the rescue of the captured U.S. President."
They say earlier drafts of the the script had a team-dynamic to it, but subsequent re-writes have turned several of the supporting characters into co-leads. Some are familiar, some »

You may be asking yourself why Jack suddenly becomes friends with a cop (Client List’s Brian Hallisay) after finding himself on the wrong side of the law last season. That’s easy: Jack is actually putting on a badge. However, despite his new position, »

We've been talking about a remake of John Caprenter's classic flick Escape from New York for a long time now, and finally some details have come to light, including the wishlist of actors being eyed to play Snake Pilissken.
Starlog is reporting that, according to a source close to the project, Silver Pictures has a shortlist of actors narrowed down to three: Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, "Sons of Anarchy"), Jon Bernthal ("The Walking Dead"), and Dan Stevens (The Guest).
Honestly? We cannot picture any of the three bringing the type of bravado and gusto to the role that Kurt Russell did, but of the trio named, I've gotta go with Bernthal. Hunnam is said to be the studio's #1 pick.

“Action!” the word is said quietly but emphatically, and the cast and crew on the set of “Masters of Sex” jump into motion. The man behind the video monitor is longtime actor Adam Arkin, and it’s clear he commands respect from the director’s chair. Sitting behind him are two of the show’s executive producers, Michelle Ashford and Sarah Timberman — and they’re taking a literal backseat to Arkin’s subtle direction of the show’s second-season finale, skedded to air Sept. 28.
“For a show like ‘Masters’ that is so performance-based, where there’s so much subtext and nuance involved, Adam makes for an ideal director,” explained Timberman. “As an actor himself, he thinks about material from the inside out, so I think the cast felt enormously comfortable in his hands.”
While still expanding his already lengthy resume with the occasional acting gig, Arkin’s been steadily building »

Seeing Jennifer Aniston get physically attacked in her new movie Life of Crime isn't an easy thing to watch. Based on Elmore Leonard's novel The Switch and directed by Daniel Schechter, the dark comedy stars Aniston as a housewife who is kidnapped by a couple of a petty criminals (John Hawkes and Mos Def) for a $1 million ransom. Her shady real estate developer husband (Tim Robbins) refuses to pay up. In one of the darkest moments of the film, Aniston is assaulted by a bumbling neo-Nazi played by Sons of Anarchy's Mark Boone Junior. "If you're going to go there and sell it, you've gotta do it," Aniston told me Thursday at the Life of Crime premiere in Hollywood. "We were, of »

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order.

(Cbr) Charlie Hunnam, star of "Sons of Anarchy" and "Pacific Rim," is in final negotiations for the title role in director Guy Ritchie’s "King Arthur" (aka "Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur"), Deadline reports. Warner Bros. is said to envision an epic six-movie fantasy retelling of the Arthurian saga, conceived by "Awake" screenwriter Joby Harold, who penned the first installment. Ritchie had been developing his own King Arthur project with his partner Lionel Wigram before boarding this film. Hunnam’s "Pacific Rim" co-star Idris Elba is in the running to play Bedivere, the right-hand man of Arthur’s father who becomes the young king’s mentor. "King Arthur" is set for release July 22, 2016. »

Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam already has a gargantuan Warner Bros. franchise on his hands with Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim 2 stomping into theaters in April 2017. Now Hunnam is in final negotiations with the studio to star as King Arthur in a medieval saga intended to span six films — by the end of both franchises, I believe Hunnam will legally be a Warner brother, right? Hunnam emerged as director Guy Ritchie’s choice for the part, beating out the likes of Jai Courtney and Henry Cavill who both recently read for the role. The latter of whom just worked with Ritchie on The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
While Deadline broke the news about Hunnam earlier today, Variety is also reporting that Elizabeth Olsen (Godzilla, Avengers: Age of Ultron) is the frontrunner for the female lead. We’re assuming her role would be that of Guinevere. »

Charlie Hunnam will be crowned king in Guy Ritchie's upcoming King Arthur film. The Sons of Anarchy star is in final negotiations to play the titular role in what Warner Bros. is planning to be a six film series, according to Variety and Deadline. Hunnam will reunite with Pacific Rim co-star Idris Elba, in the role of the Merlin-esque character who guides Arthur. There is also word that Elizabeth Olson is the front-runner for the female lead. Which would be alright by a lot of us, I imagine. And while some say, "Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government," we have not had a really good King Arthur flick since 1981's Excalibur.Warner Bros. plans to release the first film...

Hold on to your eye patches, folks, Escape From New York is coming back! Starlog dropped the news today (that we found via Fangoria) that the intended remake from Silver Pictures and StudioCanal are kicking into high gear. As of right now, the film is still in very early pre-production and without an official director, but Starlog reported that Escape From New York per their source, will be “more team-based, as Snake Plissken traverses through a treacherous New York landscape with a rogues gallery of criminals who look to leave the island-turned-prison in exchange for the rescue of the captured U.S. President.” Whether or not you’re stoked about the remake is irrelevant, because it seems like this is happening. We can’t stop it from happening, so we can at least hope that they do it right. According to Starlog’s source, the film might turn out pretty well. »

So our Penguin in training obviously changes his name at some point. Could Gotham borrow some elements from Gregg Hurwitz's Penguin: Pain and Prejudice when it comes to this character? Kane's Gertrud Kapelput is described as a "proud and faded beauty with delusions of grandeur." The series follows one cop, destined for greatness, as he navigates a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the rise of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes. The entirely new, untold chapter comes from executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”) and stars Ben McKenzie (“Southland,” “The O.C.”), Donal Logue (“Vikings,” “Sons of Anarchy”) and Jada Pinkett Smith (“Hawthorne,” “Collateral”). Gotham kicks off Monday, September 22. »

King Arthur is yet another prospective franchise starter currently in the making under Warner Bros.’ roof. Director Guy Ritchie (the Rdj-headlined Sherlock Holmes movies) is slated to oversee the project, based on a screenplay by writer/producer Joby Harold (Edge of Tomorrow) – and if all goes well at the box office, this particular cinematic retelling of the Arthurian legend could eventually give rise to a six-film saga. Now we know who Ritchie wants to lead the charge.
Deadline is reporting that Charlie Hunnam is Ritchie’s choice to portray Arthur in his film; furthermore, the Sons of Anarchy star is said to be in “final negotiations” to land the title role. Hunnam ...

His next film, the long-gestating spy picture "The Man From U.N.C.L.E," having recently been pushed back to next August, "Sherlock Holmes" helmer Guy Ritchie is already gearing up for his next project. The director's long been developing a new take on the legend of King Arthur, Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table. The script is penned by "Awake" writer and "Edge Of Tomorrow" producer Joby Harold, and Ritchie landed his first cast member a few weeks back in the shape of the ever-awesome Idris Elba. And now, Deadline and Variety report that he's found both his main character and his female lead: the trades say "Sons Of Anarchy" and "Pacific Rim" star Charlie Hunnam will likely play King Arthur, and "Godzilla" and "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" actress Elizabeth Olsen is circling the role of his wife Guinevere. Should the deals close, the pair would join Elba in the project, »

Variety just learned that Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, "Sons of Anarchy"), Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) and Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard) recently read for the lead role.

Guy Ritchie has finally decided on an actor to play King Arthur for his upcoming Warner Bros. film. Sons of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam will tackle the legendary leader in what's rumored to be a six-film series. Looks like turning down that Fifty Shades of Grey role wasn't so bad after all huh?
Hunnam is in final negotiations for the role of King Arthur. There's also rumors that Idris Elba–who co-starred with Hunnam in his other Warner Bros. franchise, Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim–is in talks to play Merlin. Elizabeth Olsen (Godzilla) is also being mentioned for the female lead.
It looks like this project is finally coming together for Ritchie. Warner Bros has tried a few »
