This story first appeared in the May 17 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Since opening its doors in October 2010, Cape Town Film Studios has had no trouble luring the holy grail of foreign film shoots: the big-budget Hollywood production. The Denzel Washington-Ryan Reynolds Universal Pictures thriller Safe House was shot there, as were the Fox sci-fi thriller Chronicle and Warner Bros.' Mad Max: Fury Road with Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.

Nicholas Hoult and Riley Keough took a walk around NYC yesterday after they partied together at Monday night's Met Gala, where Nicholas's ex Jennifer Lawrence was also in attendance. There was no drama, though, since Nicholas shared with People that he and Jennifer are "friends" and that they're "about to work on a film together." Their upcoming project, X-Men: Days of Future Past, helps explain the duo's dinner date last week, which prompted speculation that they might be rekindling their romance after calling off their two-year relationship in January. It looks like Nicholas may now be moving on with Riley, after the two met while filming Mad Max: Fury Road, though he'll soon be back alongside Jennifer since filming on the seventh X-Men installment is already under way.

Last week we heard that producer Joel Silver (The Matrix) and StudioCanal are planning to remake John Carpenter's 1981 cult classic Escape from New York, and now the NY Daily News is reporting that British actors Tom Hardy (Warrior, The Dark Knight Rises) and Jason Statham (The Expendables 2, Parker) are battling it out for the lead role of Snake Plissken, played of course by Kurt Russell in the original film and its 1996 sequel Escape from L.A.
"Jason is the type of actor who has the physical attributes and screen presence to reprise Snake," says a 'Hollywood insider close to the film's producers' - which in journalist speak, generally translates to 'we've made it up'. "He has a proven track record as a leading man and would do a great job [but] Tom was immense in The Dark Knight Rises and deserves to get a break in a top role. This »

It appears Tom Hardy and Jason Statham are favourites for the lead role, at least amongst those at Silver Pictures and Studio Canal, after the two companies landed the remake rights to John Carpenter’s cult action classic, Escape From New York. The role of wise-cracking bad-ass Snake Plissken was made famous by the brilliant Kurt Russell in 1981, as well as the bonkers 1997 sequel, Escape From L.A.
Both studios have united to remake Carpenter’s film as an origin story and hope to continue it as a new franchise/trilogy. The deal came about after New Line’s decision to let the rights lapse following their own previous attempt at a remake that saw Breck Eisner and Gerard Butler sign on as director and star, before the project eventually collapsed.
It’s rumoured they’ve targeted Hardy and Statham for the lead but The Transporter star appears to more likely »

Charlize Theron grabbed lunch in Boston yesterday during a break from the Hatfields & McCoys set. She is currently in Boston working on the pilot for the new NBC show, which isn't to be confused with The History Channel's megahit miniseries of the same name.

The actor first started directing in TV in the early 2000s and has been steadily helming episodes of shows like Modern Family, Happy Endings, and 2 Broke Girls for years. He directed the straight-to-dvd spinoff film Daddy Day Camp in 2007, but now he’s been tapped to helm a high profile feature film with an Oscar winner in the leading role. Savage is reportedly in talks to direct the comedy Ladies Night, with Charlize Theron attached to star.

Thanks to the success of "Prometheus" and "Snow White and the Huntsman" last summer (as well as her acclaimed, if ignored-by-awards-bodies performance in "Young Adult"), Charlize Theron is more in demand than ever before. The actress has already wrapped one blockbuster, "Mad Max: Fury Road," and has lots more bubbling under waiting to be picked out as her next project: sci-fi "Agent 13" with Rupert Wyatt, Scott Derrickson's horror "Zwart Water," crime thriller "Cities of Refuge," John Madden's "Murder Mystery," a biopic of Marie Colvin, a remake of "Sympathy For Lady Vengeance," Seth MacFarlane's comedy "A Million Days To Die In The West," and an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's "Dark Places." And somehow, she's found space for one more, as The Hollywood Reporter brings news that Theron will star in the comedy "Ladies Night," being backed by Skydance Productions ("Star Trek," "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol").

Well, this solidifies it: Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy really, really love each other. After co-starring in "Tinker Tailor Soldlier Spy," "Lawless," and "The Dark Knight Rises," they will now be in yet another movie together: an adaptation of historical thriller "Child 44" by Tom Rob Smith. "Child 44" concerns a series of child murders in Joseph Stalin's Soviet Union. Hardy will play a Soviet military officer investigating the murders, while Oldman will play a police chief who has his own suspicions about Hardy. Also in the cast: Noomi Rapace, as Hardy's wife, and Joel Kinnaman, as Hardy's lethal co-worker. Famed novelist and screenwriter Richard Price wrote the screenplay and Daniel Espinosa, who scored a minor hit with last year's "Safe House," will direct. Ridley Scott will produce. Since “Lawless” came out last year, Oldman has been working on the "RoboCop" remake and was just cast in Matt Reeves »

According to reports, Namibian environmental groups and tourism companies have expressed 'fury' about the "Mad Max: Fury Road" crew's alleged destruction of sensitive areas in the world's oldest desert.
"They added tracks in untouched areas," said tour operator Tommy Collard. "What is worse is the film crew tried to remove the marks they left themselves by dragging nets over them, ripping plants out. Together with other coastal tour operators we have collected a lot of photographic evidence. One cannot rehabilitate the landscape of the Namib Desert."
Collard said that smaller animals such as lizards, geckos and chameleons also suffered, as well as the rare lithops cactus.
"Mad Max: Fury Road", the fourth post-apocalyptic "Max" feature from writer/director George Miller, stars Tom Hardy as 'Max Rockatansky', Nicholas Hoult as 'Nux', Charlize Theron as 'Imperator Furiosa', Zoë Kravitz as 'Toast' and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as 'Splendid'.
