'The Crow' Wants 'Boardwalk Empire' Actor Jack Huston

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just over one month after actor Luke Evans dropped out of Relativity Media's The Crow reboot, the studio is in early talks with Jack Huston to replace him. Nothing is set in stone at this time, but the Boardwalk Empire star is the studio's top choice to play Eric Draven. We reported earlier this month that Sam Witwer was the top choice of James O'Barr, who created the comic book the reboot is based on, to take over the title role.

Deadline reports that it isn't ultimately clear if Jack Huston will officially sign on, but "signs are looking good." Relativity reportedly wants to start production this spring, but that will likely depend on how quickly negotiations progress with Jack Huston. The original 1994 adaptation of The Crow starred Brandon Lee as Eric Draven, a rock star who is murdered alongside his fiancee, but then comes back from the dead to seek vengeance. »

Robocop Star Joel Kinnaman Frontrunner To Play 'Rick Flagg' In Suicide Squad

13 February 2015 10:18 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It looks like Suicide Squad has finally found its Rick Flagg, with Joel Kinnaman said to be the frontrunner to take on the role in Fury director David Ayer's 2016 DC Comics adaptation. There were rumours that Tom Hardy departed the project due to his character not having a particularly large role, but the official explanation is that it came down to scheduling issues caused by shooting The Revenant and promotional duties for Mad Max: Fury Road. It very much sounds like this is all but a done deal, so expect to possibly hear something official about Kinnaman playing Flagg soon.  However, The Hollywood Reporter says that Joel Edgerton (Warrior) and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead are also being considered. The rest of the Suicide Squad cast includes Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevigne and likely Viola Davis and Jesse Eisenberg too. The movie will be »

Sundance Film Review: ‘True Story’

23 January 2015 11:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Truth is strange, but hardly any more interesting than fiction in “True Story,” a perplexingly serious new collaboration for James Franco and Jonah Hill. In Franco’s case, this macabre project plays right into the label-defying star’s ongoing exploration of slippery identities (here he plays a sociopath beyond redemption). Even so, one wonders just how eager audiences will be to watch a tony adaptation of ex-New York Times reporter Michael Finkel’s self-serving memoir, a conscience-cleanser written to redeem himself after being tarred and feathered for inventing a composite character in a high-profile cover story.

Unlike 2004’s respected yet low-earning “Shattered Glass,” this unconventional two-hander is less preoccupied with the undoing of a respected journo than with the odd bond that Finkel (Hill) went on to forge with convicted child killer Christian Longo (an appropriately icy Franco). Nor is the script — a surprisingly non-conceptual treatment, considering how Charlie Kaufman the project could have gone, »

Joel Edgerton Enlists Horrible Bosses Star Jason Bateman For Directorial Debut Weirdo

14 January 2015 9:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having stepped behind the camera himself for the very first time for his black comedy Bad Words in 2013, Jason Bateman is poised to return the favor, as the actor has signed on to star in Joel Edgerton’s directorial debut, Weirdo.

Written and directed by the Warrior star, the film will bring together Bateman and Rebecca Hall as a husband and wife who look to turn over a new leaf when they move to a seemingly idyllic town. However, a spanner is soon thrown in the works after an old friend from the past turns up out of the blue, threatening to tear their relationship to ribbons. It’s an arc that has been described as a “chilling and suspenseful” journey for the couple.

Given that the the concept centers around Bateman and Hall’s two leads, you begin to get the feeling that Edgerton’s outing will live or »

Relativity Buys ‘Blood Aces'; Story Of Benny Binion, The Cowboy-Gangster-Killer Who Hatched World Series Of Poker

12 January 2015 4:10 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: Relativity has acquired screen rights to Blood Aces: The Wild Ride Of Benny Binion and has set Cliff Dorfman to adapt the Doug Swanson book. Dorfman has a first look with Relativity. Binion’s résumé reads like this:  cowboy, pioneering casino owner, gangster, killer and founder of the World Series of Poker. The book chronicles his  role in shaping modern Las Vegas. From a Texas backwater, Binion rose to prominence on a combination of vision, determination and brutal expediency. His formula was simple: Run a good business, cultivate the big boys, kill your enemies, own the cops. While he controlled his competition through ruthless violence, his irresistible charm brought him the protection of the political elite. But one feud went too far, and a competitor he later would assassinate after 12 attempts ran him out of Dallas.

5 January 2015 10:27 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Wait, are these official "Jane Got a Gun" stills or distant mirages hanging on the horizon of a long and winding road? It’s easy to believe the latter. After original director Lynne Ramsay ("We Need to Talk About Kevin") bailed from the Natalie Portman-led Western on the first day of shooting, producers scrambled to find a replacement, recruiting "Warrior" director Gavin O’Connor to save the day.The switch turned "Jane Got a Gun" became a rotating door for high-profile actors, with Bradley Cooper and Michael Fassbender joining and departing the cast. Ewan McGregor eventually joined Portman and Joel Edgerton as the film’s villain and shooting began late in 2013, only to hit major delays during post-production. Relativity’s release date of August 29, 2014 came and went. A rescheduled February 2015 date found itself bumped again, with the picture now settled in an early September slot.

Troubled Western Jane Got A Gun Shows Off First Images

5 January 2015 8:51 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Relativity Media’s Jane looks to not only have gotten a gun, but also her act together after the studio released the first images from the long-gestating western.

After experiencing a switch in filmmakers alongside cast members jumping ship — namely Jude Law and later Michael Fassbender — who reportedly clashed with director at the time Lynne Ramsay, it’s fair to say that Jane Got a Gun has been through its share of development issues — and then some. But now, with little over nine months to go until its long-awaited and indeed delayed release, the studio has assured the world that the western tale is still coming thick and fast.

Starring Natalie Portman as the titular heroine, Jane Got a Gun — which will now be directed by Warrior‘s Gavin O’Connor in Ramsay’s stead — follows Jane as she goes to her ex-lover for help when her husband finds himself »

First Look: Natalie Portman in the Delayed Western 'Jane Got a Gun'

5 January 2015 8:15 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Before the end of 2014, we got word that the once trouble western Jane Got a Gun was being delayed yet again. The film was initially set for release last August, but was delayed to February 20th, 2015. And the latest news revealed it had been pushed back another six months to September 4th, 2015. But it seems this release date might stick, and now we have some first look photos from the film starring Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton. It looks pretty much how you'd expect a western to look. No sign of Ewan McGregor yet, but he may be in that photo of what is likely the gang giving Portman and Edgerton trouble. Here's the first photos from Gavin O'Connor's Jane Got a Gun from Unanimous (via The Playlist): Jane Got a Gun is directed by Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) and written by Brian Duffield (The Divergent Series: Insurgent).

First Images From Jane Got A Gun

Things didn't get off to a good start for Western Jane Got a Gun, starring Natalie Portman as woman who calls on her ex-lover to defend her home and injured outlaw husband from her husband's gang. Michael Fassbender and Joel Edgerton were signed on to play the ex-lover and gang leader respectively, but when Fassbender left due to a scheduling, Edgerton moved into the role he vacated, and Jude Law coming onboard as the villain. Then, director Lynne Ramsey (We Need To Talk About Kevin) unexpectedly dropped out on the first day of shooting, with Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) signing up to replace. Just as everything seemed to be sorted, Law left because he only wanted to work with Ramsey. Bradley Cooper was chosen to replace him, then scheduling conflicts again reared their ugly head, and he had to drop. The production finally landed on Ewan McGregor to play the movie's big bad, »

Natalie Portman Gets a Gun in First Images from Jane Got A Gun

The first Jane Got a Gun images have landed online. Natalie Portman stars as a woman who must call on an ex-lover to help defend her farm and injured outlaw husband from the husband’s gang.  The project’s tumultuous history might overshadow what sounds like an interesting throwback western.  For those who need a refresher, Michael Fassbender was going to play the ex-lover and Joel Edgerton was to play the gang leader.  Then Fassbender left because of a scheduling conflict, Edgerton moved to the ex-lover role, and Jude Law signed on to play the villain.  Then matters got crazier when director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk about Kevin) unexpectedly dropped out on the first day of shooting, and the production scrambled for a replacement.  They got Gavin O’Connor (Warrior), but then Law left because he wanted to work with Ramsay.  Bradley Cooper came on to play the villain, »
