As you can see above, Fox have unveiled the logo for Gotham just hours after The CW released a first look at Grant Gustin in full costume as The Flash. Surely this means something Constantine related will follow shortly? After all, there have been rumblings of one final major casting addition…
Along with a lengthy plot synopsis and cast list, the lengthy press release below also confirms that Two-Face will be part of the series which focuses on the early years of Detective James Gordon after Bruce Wayne’s parents are murdered. Due to his role as Gotham’s District Attorney when Batman first emerges, it makes sense that the series would pick up with him at an even earlier point in his career (it’s even possible that him and Bruce will be classmates based on some comics).
The synopsis makes for an interesting read, and Gotham might just »

Tom Arnold is looking like a completely new man lately. The actor's weight became a topic of conversation at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, when the Sons of Anarchy star debuted a dramatically slimmer frame at the premiere of Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon. The comedian looked confident and happy as he posed on the red carpet in a long-sleeved cardigan, blue plaid shirt and jeans, and took pictures with the movie's star Mike Myers and producer Shep Gordon. Arnold previously weighed in at 287 pounds and revealed that the birth of his son, Jax Copeland Arnold, last April was his motivation to lose the weight and lead a healthy lifestyle. "Something »

Video-game adaptations are a dime a dozen, but it’s rare that any of them are worth even a cursory glance. The Resident Evil franchise, BloodRayne and Silent Hill are just a few of many that have fallen completely flat in their attempts to replicate the thrills of their source material on the big screen. However, based on casting alone, 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Hitman remake Agent 47 may actually be worth checking out.
With Homeland actor Rupert Friend stepping into the title role (replacing the late Paul Walker), and Zachary Quinto set to play the main villain, Agent 47 already has more going for it than most video-game adaptations. Now, it looks like the film will boast more than one baddie, with news that Thomas Kretschmann has signed on to play Le Clerq, the chairman of an nefarious organization called Syndicate International, which schemes to build its own army of assassins. »

In a week that's seen Bryan Cranston (Godzilla, Breaking Bad) confirming that he was never approached about the role of Lex Luthor for Batman vs. Superman, director Zack Snyder and his wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder have spoken about leaks, with Deborah stating that: "Things get leaked so often these days, it's a shame because even casing announcements, or whatever, you're in the middle of a process and sometimes they're so off base -- and then it gets picked up by »

Through that process, one name occurs to him: Former "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul. During a question and answer session with his Twitter followers, Sutter was asked who he would pick, if he could have any actor on "Sons."
"I think it would be fun to get @aaronpaul_8 on the show," he writes.
That would be a pretty great appearance on the show, and it's not like Paul wouldn't fit in with that world. He's well-versed in playing an outlaw. Plus, the chance to get him on a motorcycle -- Who would pass that up?
Now, everyone needs to take a moment to wish for this dream casting to actually happen. »
With The Equalizer in the can, set for a late 2014 release, Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen) has been busy looking for his next project. Now, it seems that he has officially settled on a film that has been on his radar for a while – the long-gestating Southpaw, which will star Jake Gyllenhaal.
As the story of a rising welterweight boxing champion who enjoys continued professional success while his personal life disintegrates, Southpaw was originally conceived by Kurt Sutter (creator of Sons Of Anarchy) as a vehicle for Eminem (Marshall Mathers). As Deadline reported in late 2010, DreamWorks co-chairman/CEO Stacey Snider acquired the project after championing 8 Mile as head of Universal Pictures. Sutter explained that it was inspired by the struggles Eminem had endured:
“He shared so much of his personal struggle in this raw and very honest album – one that I connected with on a lot of levels. »

Matt Ryan was cast as John Constantine last month, and now another three actors have been found for the DC Comics/Vertigo adaptation. For those of you who have forgotten the 2005 movie starring Keanu Reeves or are unfamiliar with the character, the series focuses on Constantine, a man who struggles with his faith as he is haunted by the sins of his past and is suddenly thrust into the role of defending humanity from the gathering forces of darkness.
True Blood’s Lucy Griffiths will play Liv, the female lead and an offbeat young lady who finds herself teamed with Constantine after she is marked for death by a powerful demon. With the ability to see the supernatural world among us, she becomes a key player in the battle between good and evil.

“One night in Harlem, sour, aging Mat reunites with his younger brother Alan, just before Alan heads out for a long-planned vacation with his live-in girlfriend Farrah. Only days later, much sooner than expected, Alan returns home from his vacation to find his apartment commandeered by Mat, Mat’s girlfriend and Mat’s girlfriend’s son. As doors slam and the power gives out and the threads of family fray, a mystery lingers: why has Alan returned home without Farrah,” reads the official description.
A year after The Weinstein Company picked up Antoine Fuqua's boxing drama Southpaw, which was to star starring Eminem, the project looks like it's finally packaged and ready to shoot, with Jake Gyllenhaal now attached to star. It had previously been put on the backburner after Dreamworks (the original studio that was to produce it) pulled the plug on the project in August 2011. And then in late 2011, it was announced that Sony Pictures had stepped in to release the film, which was penned by Eminem and Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, and tells the story of a left-handed welterweight boxer who becomes a »
Okay, the McConnaisance is now complete with the Matthew McConaughey taking the Best Actor award at the Oscars over the weekend. So how about the Gyllen-sance instead? The actor has quietly been putting a together a string of solid work with interesting directors including "Source Code" for Duncan Jones; "End Of Watch" with David Ayer; two films with Denis Villeneuve, "Prisoners" and "Enemy"; and he's currently in production on "Everest" with Baltasar Kormakur and recently wrapped "Nightcrawler" with Dan Gilroy (brother of Tony) What's next? Deadline confirms that "Southpaw," set to be directed by Antoine Fuqua, and star Jake Gyllenhaal—both signed up last year—will roll in front of cameras this summer, with The Weinstein Company paying the bills. Penned by Kurt Sutter of “Sons of Anarchy” fame, the story chronicles the rise of a lefty welterweight all the way to a championship title as he battles various tragedies in his personal life, »

With a certain amount of trepidation I am finally caving in and talking about the Pilot (that’s right, no guarantees we’ll ever see it) for NBC‘s Constantine. I really want this one to happen, and I’m afraid this will jinx it, but okay, here we go.
Back in September, NBC bought the project with penalty (NBC will pay a penalty if it doesn’t air the pilot) with Daniel Cerone (The Dark Corner, Threshhold, Dexter, Charmed) and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Da Vinci’s Demons, the Dark Knight trilogy) as writers/executive producers.
Based on the DC/Vertigo comic books, John Constantine is a snarky con-man-turned supernatural detective, which sounds absolutely excellent but also slightly reminiscent of Powers, which once again reminds me that not all pilots, even excellent comics-based pilots with great casts, see the light of day.

Based on the best-selling memoir by Piper Kerman, Orange is the New Black stars Taylor Schilling (The Lucky One) as Piper Chapman, a Brooklynite who’s about to embark on a new business venture, selling custom candles, when her wild past with Alex Vause (Laura Prepon, The Kitchen) comes back to haunt her.
To pay her debt to society, Piper leaves behind her fiancee (Jason Biggs, American Reunion) and turns herself into a federal penitentiary, where she dons her orange jumpsuit and comes face to face with Alex as well as a cell full of eccentric inmates.
Some quick casting news has arrived for NBC's "Constantine" series as The Wrap is reporting that Harold Perrineau (“Lost”), Lucy Griffiths (“True Blood”), and Charles Halford (“True Detective”) have joined the graphic novel pilot.
Perrineau (pictured), who played the role of Michael Dawson on ABC's “Lost” and recently appeared in FX's “Sons of Anarchy,” has been cast as series regular Manny. The network describes the character as an authoritative figure assigned to watch over Constantine (series star Matt Ryan).
Griffiths will play the role of Liv, Constantine's partner with supernatural abilities. She most recently starred in the sixth season of HBO's “True Blood” as Nora Gainesborough. “True Detective's” Charles Halford has been cast as Chas, Constantine's oldest friend and staunch companion with possible supernatural survival skills.
Constantine is described as a working-class Londoner with rakish good looks, scruffy blond hair, deadpan humor, and signature trench coat, who »
