Viola Davis talks Suicide Squad and DC’s “darker characters”

27 August 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Deadline to dicuss her work on ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder, Viola Davis has offered up a few words on Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC supervillain ensemble Suicide Squad., where she plays the character of Amanda Waller, head of A.R.G.U.S. and Task Force X.

DC Comics have a tendency to have darker characters,” states Davis. “You know, Batman is a darker character, Harley Quinn, the Joker, and what David Ayer has managed to do is humanize them. I think that you see it in the trailer too–just something different about it that makes you lean in. What he’s explored is the pathology behind all of these characters, so you just get that extra spin that gives you the flavor and a look which is very different. »

Margot Robbie on losing out on Sue Storm in Fantastic Four, and Jared Leto’s Joker

26 August 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Next year Margot Robbie is set to give a big screen debut to the fan favourite DC character Harley Quinn in Warner Bros.Suicide Squad, and speaking to Daily News, the Australian actress has revealed that she had previously been under consideration to play Susan Storm in 20th Century Fox’s box office bomb Fantastic Four – a role she eventually lost out on to Kate Mara.

“I didn’t really resonate with the script, and I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t really know how it turned out different from the page,” states Robbie. “But I had a great meeting with the director [Josh Trank] and I really enjoyed that. I guess it’s part of the game: sometime you win some, sometimes you lose some.”

Given the reception to Fantastic Four, I guess this one can be chalked up as a “win”.

Meanwhile, the actress also shared a »

25 August 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Haley Bennett (The Equalizer) has landed a lead role in the upcoming film adaptation of The Girl On The Train.

Paula Hawkins wrote the best-selling novel of which the film is based, with Emily Blunt (Sicario) and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) already cast in the other lead roles. Blunt plays Rachel, “a recent divorcee who narrates the tale and spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day. One morning, she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds, involving the other two women.”

Bennett’s star is certainly on the rise after her role in Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer opposite Denzel Washington, as Fuqua added her to the impressive cast of his upcoming The Magnificent Seven remake opposite Washington and Chris Pratt (Jurassic World), and has now joined the »

25 August 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Emily Blunt is Rachel, "Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation" breakout Rebecca Ferguson nabbed the role of Anne, and now Tate Taylor's ("The Help," "Get On Up") adaptation of the best-selling thriller "The Girl On The Train", has found its Megan. Deadline reports that rising star Haley Bennett ("The Equalizer," plus upcoming films from Terrence Malick and Warren Beatty) has joined the movie about a young woman whose observances on her daily commute take a sudden and deadly turn when she sees something not quite right. Here's the book synopsis:  Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. »

The Equalizer’s Haley Bennett Catches The Girl On The Train

25 August 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Tate Taylor (The Help) has secured his three leading ladies for the upcoming adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ best-seller The Girl On The Train, after Deadline broke that The Equalizer‘s Haley Bennett has joined the project to play the titular part.

Bennett joins Emily Blunt and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation‘s Rebecca Ferguson for the much-touted novel-to-screen translation, which has since drawn comparisons to Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl and its thriller tenets. Working from a screenplay produced by Erin Cressida Wilson, Taylor’s film centers around Bennett’s Rachel, an everyday commuter who tries to brighten up her trips to and from work by dreaming up a scenario for a seemingly idyllic suburban home.

Jess and Jason, as she refers to them, are a perfectly happy married couple living a life that she so longs for, but one morning when her train passes by their house she witnesses something bizarre – deadly, »

After her stellar break-out performance in this summer’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, actress Rebecca Ferguson is in talks to star in The Girl On the Train, reports Deadline.

Tate Taylor (The Help) is directing the film based on the novel by Paula Hawkins, and Ferguson will take on one of three main female roles in the film, with one of the roles already secured by Emily Blunt (Into The Woods).

One morning, she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds.”

With this news, the site also suggests that Ferguson has bowed out of the running for the female lead in the Channing Tatum-starring comic book adaptation Gambit in favour of this film. »
