Mark Rylance Joins Action Thriller The Gunman

24 June 2013 12:15 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Given that he's best known for the punchy Taken, Pierre Morel's assembling a seriously high-value cast for his next film, The Gunman. He's already lined up Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Javier Bardem and Ray Winstone for the action thriller; now Mark Rylance is set to sign on as well.How familiar you are with Rylance may depend on how closely you follow award-winning theatre, since he's basically in all of it. Oh sure, he's appeared in films like The Other Boleyn Girl and Anonymous (let's pretend he wasn't in the latter, eh? At least he only played a Shakespearean actor, which is casting for type). But it's really incredible turns on stage in the likes of Jerusalem and basically the entire Shakespeare canon for which he's best known. He's a double Tony and Olivier winner, and will no doubt be stretched not-at-all to play the nemesis to Sean Penn's spy. »

DVD Review

Ben Hur

Directed by: Steve Shill

Cast: Joseph Morgan, Stephen Campbell Moore, Emily VanCamp, Ray Winstone, Alex Kingston, Hugh Bonneville

Running Time: 3 hr 12 mins

Rating: Not Rated

Due Out: April 30, 2013

Plot: When a tile falls during a Roman parade, Judah Ben-Hur (Morgan) and his family are wrongfully punished. Sent away to be a slave, Ben-Hur eventually returns to his home seeking revenge.

Who’S It For? Those who enjoyed History Channel’s The Bible or other similar adaptations might find some enjoyment in this Ben Hur miniseries. Anyone who is only interested in seeing what an updated take on the chariot race looks like should save themselves the trouble.

Movie:

Though its aspirations are far more modest, I went in expecting Ben Hur to be similar to the recent History Channel miniseries, The Bible. While I’m not religious, I slogged through it because I still find a lot of the stories interesting. »
