10 July 2015 5:33 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

“The name’s Bond… James Bond” – an iconic line that has graced the lips of a select few screen legends from the debonair highs of Sean Connery and David Niven to the rough and ready depths of Timothy Dalton and Daniel Craig with a dollop of cinema’s finest cheese inbetween ala George Lazenby, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan. But with Daniel Craig’s contract up, everyone is wondering which actor will be next.

There’s no shortage of speculation but if you’re a betting (wo)man you’ll find yourself drawn to some of British film’s finest men of the moment.

In the frame for filling 007’s shoes (and the bookies’ betting cards) include: Fifty Shades of Grey’s Jamie Dornan, The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill, The Theory of Everything’s Eddie Redmayne, Avatar’s Sam Worthington, »

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon to produce FIFA corruption scandal film

28 June 2015 6:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon will produce a film about the worldwide FIFA scandal.

The project is based on the upcoming book Houses of Deceit by BuzzFeed's Ken Bensinger, chronicling the role American FIFA executive Chuck Blazer played in the corruption scandal.

Warner Bros has won a bidding war for the rights, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Affleck and Damon are involved through production company Pearl Street Films.

Blazer rose through the football ranks, becoming executive vice president of the Us Soccer Federation, but in the 2010s, he was hit with allegations of bribery and tax evasion.

He later admitted to conspiring to accept bribes alongside other FIFA executives.

Gavin O'Connor, who recently completed work on Affleck film The Accountant, is reportedly attached to direct. Warrior writer Anthony Tambakis is said to be penning the script. »

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon producing FIFA scandal film for Warner Bros., Gavin O’Connor to direct

28 June 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Warner Bros. is planning to explore the FIFA corruption scandal on the big screen, having secured the rights to Houses of Deceit, a book by investigative reporter Ken Bensinger.

The movie will focus on Chuck Blazer, the American FIFA exec turned FBI informant, whose arrest on bribery and tax evasion charges ultimately blew the lid on the corruption rife within the world footballing body.

“I love the con-man story and just love that this is about a very strong sense of good and bad,” Bensinger tells EW. “There’s not a lot of ambiguity about how these people behave. The IRS and FBI, and all these people who sort of did the good work and brought down something that was untouchable, because the power of FIFA internationally is unbelievable. It’s as if you combined the Mlb, NBA, NFL, and NHL into one organization. »

Ben Affleck to Produce FIFA Scandal Movie; Gavin O’Connor to Direct

26 June 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It didn’t take long for Hollywood to capitalize on the embarrassment that is FIFA. The soccer (or football, depending on where you live) organization has been widely know to be corrupt for years, but something was actually done about it in May when the FBI arrested top executives as a result of a lengthy investigation. Now THR reports that Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are set to produce an adaptation of Ken Bensinger’s book Houses of Deceit, which was just acquired by Warner Bros. The book is being seen as the “definitive account” of American FIFA exec Chuck Blazer’s role in the FIFA scandal. While one might see this as an opportunity for Affleck to direct, the project already has Warrior helmer Gavin O’Connor attached to helm and co-write with his frequent partner Anthony Tambakis. O’Connor recently wrapped shooting on the thriller The Accountant, which stars Affleck, »
