Simon Kinberg talks X-Men: Apocalypse, confirms Rose Byrne return as Moira MacTaggert

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week the actors who will play the young versions of Jean Grey, Storm and Cyclops were announced for X-Men: Apocalypse, and now it has been confirmed that another character will be returning to the franchise, with Rose Byrne, who played Moira MacTaggert in X-Men: First Class, set to return for the latest movie.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Simon Kinberg confirmed that Byrne will be back in the role for X-Men: Apocalypse: “She’s a significant character in the movie. We ended First Class with Charles having wiped portions of her memory of her experience with the X-Men. They are, essentially, strangers to her when she meets them. It’s certainly a rich relationship that we started to dig into in First Class, and would like to mine more in this one.”

Kinberg also states that the latest film will be tie up existing character arcs: “This »

30 January 2015 4:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was just announced that Matthew McConaughey will star in a screen adaptation of Christopher McDougall’s book Born To Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, And The Greatest Race The World Has Never Seen. Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z) penned the screenplay for the upcoming film, which will be produced by Mickey Liddell, Deb Newmyer and Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

Born to Run is described as an “epic adventure” that follows McDougall as he ventures off to Mexico’s deadly Copper Canyons in search of a tribe of the world’s greatest distance runners. Intent on learning their secrets of running hundreds of miles without rest in brutal terrain, the Tarahumara Indians flip his understanding of the art of running on its head.

The tribe’s superhuman athletic talent is combined with excellent physical health, both leading to the tribe’s ultimately peaceful existence. With the help of a mysterious loner Caballo Blanco, »

Matthew McConaughey To Lead Bestseller Adaptation Born To Run

28 January 2015 2:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey has signed on to star as a long-distance runner in the adaptation of Christopher McDougalls’s best-selling novel, Born To Run. After sitting pretty on the New York Times Bestseller list for 187 weeks, the book went on to spark a global barefoot running sensation and has gone on to sell 3 million copies worldwide. So, it’s no wonder that the true story caught the attention of Hollywood and McConaughey, who has become a go-to leading man for several high-profile titles in recent years.

Per Deadline, the film tells the story of an award-winning journalist and frequently-injured runner who learns to hone his ability to run for hundreds of miles without resting or acquiring any injuries. His lengthy jog finds him headed for Mexico’s isolated, deadly Copper Canyons to find out how the blissful Tarahumara Indians managed to perfect this ability.

Matthew McConaughey Boards ‘Born to Run’

28 January 2015 2:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matthew McConaughey is attached to star in the adaptation of Christopher McDougall’s “Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen.”

Matthew Michael Carnahan is penning the script, with Mickey Liddell, Deb Newmyer and Lorenzo di Bonaventura producing.

The story follows a journalist and often-injured runner who headed for Mexico’s Copper Canyons to find out how the Tarahumara Indians honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury.

The film is currently without distribution.

McConaughey is continuing to find projects that sway more toward the serious dramas like “Mud” and “Dallas Buyers Club” that have helped revitalized his career in recent years as opposed to the romantic comedies that helped him make a name for himself early on in his career.

He was most recently seen in “Interstellar” and can be seen next in Gus Van Sant’s “Sea of Trees. »

The actor went on to say: "I've never seen a kid that young be that present and that powerful. So I think he's a perfect fit, and I congratulate him."

Sheridan earned positive critical reviews for his performances in The Tree of Life and Joe, in addition to legal drama Mud.

James Marsden says congrats to 'powerful' actor Tye Sheridan for new role as Cyclops

24 January 2015 4:42 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City - A new actor has been named to play Cyclops in the next "X-Men" movie, and James Marsden is impressed. Marsden, who has been the long-time Cyclops in the popular superhero films, was on hand at the Sundance Film Festival to comment on Tye Sheridan stepping into his shoes, to play the younger version of Cyclops in forthcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse." "He's a wonderfully talented actor who blew me away in 'Mud'," Marsden said from the red carpet of "The D Train" premiere. He said he has "never seen a kid that young be that present and that powerful. I congratulate him." Marsden also talked about his character Oliver Lawless in the Jack Black co-starring "D Train." Oliver has local notoriety for having landed himself in a television commercial, making him a somewhat celebrity for his high school reunion. Black -- according to Marsden -- is not »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Entertainment’

24 January 2015 3:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Not everyone found much to laugh about in director Rick Alverson’s 2012 Sundance competition entry “The Comedy,” an extravagantly rude, confrontational and surprisingly poignant study of a dissolute New York slacker waiting to inherit his dying father’s fortune. And not everyone will be entertained by Alverson’s new “Entertainment,” an even darker, weirder odyssey through a soulless American nowhere, with perhaps the world’s most abrasively unfunny insult comic as our guide. But take it or leave it, Alverson’s fourth feature is singular stuff, and it reconfirms the director as one of the truly bold voices in the all-too-homogenous U.S. indie film scene. General audiences will keep a safe distance, but “Entertainment” should have no trouble finding a fervent cult to call its own.

24 January 2015 1:16 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago Bryan Singer announced who would play the younger versions of Jean Grey, Storm and Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse., with Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones), Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) and Tye Sheridan signing on to the 2016 film.

So, I think he’s a perfect fit and I congratulate him.”

'X-Men: Apocalypse': James Marsden Praises New Cyclops

24 January 2015 12:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier in the week, it was announced that Joe and Mud star Tye Sheridan had won the role of Young Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse. The news hasn't exactly swayed fans either way, as the actor is relatively unknown. But he does have one supporter in his corner, and it maybe the only voice that counts at the moment. James Marsden, who originated the role of Cyclops in 2000's X-Men, and played him in three more films, is quite happy with the choice 20th Century Fox has made.

"I think he's a wonderfully talented actor who blew me away in Mud. I've never seen a kid that young be that present and that powerful. So, I think he's a perfect fit and I congratulate him."

This isn't the first time that another actor has taken over the role. Tim Pocock also played a younger version of Scott Summers in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. »

'X-Men' Casts 'Game of Thrones' Star as a Young Jean Grey

23 January 2015 3:23 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sansa Stark is joining the mutant world in the new X-Men sequel!

Director Bryan Singer tweeted the good news Thursday that Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, and Tye Sheridan will become the newest crop of young mutants in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Meet our new and brilliant young mutants: @Alexshipppp as #Storm @SophieT as #JeanGrey and @TyeSheridan as #Cyclops. #XmenApocalypse

Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) January 23, 2015

Turner is best known for her role as Sansa Stark in the HBO hit series Game of Thrones. While she’ll still be able to keep that red hair we’ve grown so fond of, next year she'll transform into a young Jean Gray. Adult Grey is portrayed by Famke Janssen.

Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner is officially X-Men's Jean Grey

23 January 2015 11:16 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Sansa Stark – or rather actress Sophie Turner – has been cast as Jean Grey in 2016's Days of Future Past follow-up, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Last night, director Bryan Singer confirmed on his Twitter account that “Game of Thrones” star will become Famke Janssen’s younger iteration much in the same way Jennifer Lawrence has taken over for Rebecca Romijn, James McAvoy for Patrick Stewart, and so on.

Joining Turner are The Tree of Life and Mud’s Tye Sheridan as young Cyclops/Scott Summers and newcomer Alexandra Shipp as young Storm.

Turner’s Sansa has never been the favourite Stark. “Game of Thrones” fans have gravitated toward her younger sister, Arya, in much greater numbers, but Sansa should not be counted out. Unlike her sister, who lives on the fringes with a tiny sword and a bowl cut, Sansa has started to embrace the political intrigues of Westeros – she’s now “playing »

Karl Urban, Jeff Nichols and Noam Munro linked to Aquaman movie

23 January 2015 10:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the launch of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice still over a year away, Warner Bros. is continuing with preparations for the rest of the films they have announced for their DC Cinematic Universe.

One of those announced and already in pre-production is Aquaman, the aquatic hero who can talk to fish, starring Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones), who is reported to have signed a four-picture deal with WB. The solo film is set for a 2018 release, and the cogs are moving quickly on the project.

Rumours abound that there are two scripts in the mix for the film, both of which are are big budget adventures, putting the Aquaman film into a huge, expansive adventure. All of that will of course follow Momoa’s appearance in Dawn of Justice next year, alongside Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader, Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, »

We knew that would see younger versions of these characters in this film that is set to take place in the 1980s, and it seems like they've cast some solid young talent. They will join James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, and Nicholas Hoult in the film.

We still don't know all of the details about the movie, but we've heard that it will involve ancient mutants and explore a deeper relationship between Magneto and Mystique. Quicksilver »

"Game of Thrones" Star Sophie Turner Cast as Jean Grey In "X-Men: Apocalypse"

Sansa Stark just made her most powerful move yet."Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner was just cast as a young Jean Grey in the upcoming film "X-Men: Apocalypse," taking over the role from Famke Janssen.The flick, like "X-Men: First Class" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past," will take place before the events of Bryan Singer's 2000 film "X-Men," meaning younger stars were needed to fill some of the original trilogy stars' shoes.Turner follows in the footsteps of actors like Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy ... who played younger versions of Mystique, Magneto and Professor Xavier in the last two films.But she's not the only superhero getting recast.Both Storm and Cyclops -- who were originally played by Halle Berry and James Marsden -- will appear in the new film as well.

Sansa Stark Is the Latest Addition to 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

23 January 2015 4:56 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well, there are going to be some new mutants on the block when "X-Men: Apocalypse" opens next summer. And by new mutants we mean new version of old mutants (this is getting confusing). Last night on Twitter, "X-Men: Apocalypse" director Bryan Singer announced that Alexandra Shipp will be playing Storm, Sophie Turner will be Jean Grey, and Tye Sheridan will be Cyclops. The movie will open on May 27th, 2016.

All three actors are up-and-coming stars, with Shipp having recently starred in the Lifetime "Aaliyah" movie (and since "X-Men: Apocalypse" is set in the '80s, we hope that she rocks that awesome mohawk), while Sheridan has starred in "The Tree of Life," "Mud," "Joe," and has a role in the upcoming "Scouts vs. Zombies." Turner, of course, stars as Sansa Stark on "Game of Thrones" and has a number of buzz-worthy projects opening in the next year, including the action thriller "Barely Lethal, »
