Milo Gibson as Al Capone in Trailer for Crime Thriller 'Gangster Land'

"These guys are coming after you...!" Cinedigm has released an official trailer for a new crime thriller titled Gangster Land, from director Timothy Woodward Jr., of the western film Hickok also being released this year. Not quite Gangster Squad, not quite The Godfather, this indie mob film follows Al Capone's second in command, "Machine Gun" Jack McGurn, as played by Sean Faris. It tells the story of Capone's rise, but through the the eyes of McGurn. Milo Gibson (one of Mel's sons) plays Capone, and the full cast includes Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Peter Facinelli, Michael Paré, Jason Patric, Don Harvey, Mark Rolston, and Al Sapienza. This actually looks better than expected, but doesn't look like a knock out either. Take a look. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Timothy Woodward Jr.'s Gangster Land, direct from YouTube: The story of America’s most famous mobsters and their rise to power, Gangster Land

Ryan Gosling's Love Letters to Los Angeles

Ryan Gosling's Love Letters to Los Angeles
Ryan Gosling's most frequent co-star isn't Emma Stone. It's Los Angeles.

Over the past 10 years, Gosling has starred in seven movies where Los Angeles not only serves as the setting, but as a character. And he's the first to admit that the sunny, messy, dynamic sprawl is one of the keys to his storytelling.

"'L.A. worships everything and values nothing.' That was something my lady said to me one day, and I thought it was so funny I asked her if I could put it in the movie," Gosling told Et's Denny Directo during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where he was promoting 2016's La La Land. (The lady in question, of course, is Gosling's longtime partner Eva Mendes, although this being L.A., we do love the noirish connotations of him not identifying her by name.) "She was kidding, but it's a funny thing to say... I loved when

Venom Eyes Jenny Slate for Spider-Man Spin-Off

  • MovieWeb
Sony Pictures' highly-anticipated Venom keeps adding to its growing cast, with comedic actress Jenny Slate entering negotiations for a supporting role. While the character's identity has been kept under wraps, sources claim the actress will play a scientist in the film, but there is no indication just yet if this character is based at all on another character that has roots in the Marvel Comics. It's also unclear at this point how many more characters need to be added, but the cast is growing so fast that all of the roles may be filled soon.

Despite all of the recent casting updates, the Venom production keeps getting delayed, with a report from last month revealing that filming is now scheduled to begin on October 23. Production had initially been scheduled to begin in Atlanta on September 1, but the Spider-Man spin-off has reportedly had trouble finding key crew members, since two massive

MIchelle Williams Joins Tom Hardy In ‘Venom’

Michelle Williams (Wonderstruck) has joined Tom Hardy in the Venom movie, which is about to start production. Variety reports that the actress will play a district attorney in the forthcoming film, joining the likes of the already cast Riz Ahmed.

Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) is directing for Sony Pictures, though the film will reportedly be not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner (The Dark Tower) are writing the screenplay, which revolves around the alien symbiote of Venom, which has been one of “Spider-Man’s” most popular characters.

Michelle Williams will next be seen in the aforementioned Wonderstruck, as well as Ridley Scott’s upcoming All The Money In The World, the trailer for which debuted a couple of weeks ago.

Venom starts shooting this month for a release on October 5th, 2018.

Michelle Williams to Co-Star in New Venom Movie?

  • DailyDead
Tom Hardy could have some new company in the upcoming Venom movie, as it's being reported that Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea, Shutter Island) is "in talks" to star in the film about one of Spider-Man's most popular villains (or antihero, depending on how you view the character).

Word of Williams' potential casting comes from Variety, who report that Sony currently has not confirmed the news.

If Williams does sign on to co-star in the film, she would join Hardy, who will play Eddie Brock, a man who becomes linked with an alien Symbiote that turns him into Venom, one of the ultimate villains in the Spider-Man universe. Although Venom and the Symbiote have a big influence on Spider-Man in the Marvel comic books, this film would take place outside of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which includes the most recent appearance by the web-slinger in this year's Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Tom Hardy to play Venom in new Sony “Marvel universe” film; Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer to direct

Author: Scott Davis

In what is perhaps one of the most surprising but equally exciting announcements of the year, Sony Pictures (via their official Twitter) have this weekend made a huge step forward in their long-mooted Venom film with the news that a star and director have been found for the project.

Tom Hardy has been signed to star as the titular character, aka Eddie Brock, and returns to the world of comic-book villainy after his role in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises as the equally-bulky bad guy Bane. Hardy, who was also set to play Rick Flagg in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad before he had to pull out due to schedule conflicts with The Revenant, had been looking to re-enter the world of superheroes for a while now.

Joining him on the project is director Ruben Fleischer, the filmmaker behind such films as Zombieland and Gangster Squad,

Tom Hardy To Play Venom, Ruben Fleischer To Direct

Deadline is reporting that Tom Hardy will suit up as Venom in Sony’s new film, with Gangster Squad director Ruben Fleischer set to helm. Production on the pic is expected to get underway this fall, with an October 5th, 2018 release date being eyed. From what we understand, the project is a top priority for the studio and the rest of the cast is expected to fill out shortly.

Given that Marvel won’t be involved in Venom, don’t expect to see Tom Holland’s web-slinger show up here. However, with Sony also developing a spinoff for Black Cat and Silver Sable, those two characters will likely be involved in some capacity – probably via a quick cameo to lay the groundwork for their film. As for who else could feature, that’s anyone’s guess, but the studio is clearly building their own little shared universe and you can
