John Travolta stars as Gambino family crime boss John Gotti, with Kelly Preston portraying the teflon don's wife, Victoria Gotti. The story follows Gotti and his son, who wants to leave the family business to start fresh on his own.
Leo Rossi and Lem Dobbs wrote the screenplay, based on an original idea by John Gotti Jr.. Marc Fiore, Ted Field, Thomas Devlin and Michael Froch are producing. Shooting is scheduled to begin in New York this September.
The power of Cannes has brought another tidbit of casting news. The mafia flick which has been gestating for years, Gotti, now has Anthony Hopkins attached. Hopkins will join John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston, both already confirmed to star. Hopkins’ role is as-yet undisclosed, though our guess is he’ll be in the running for an old school mobster. Expect him to hone his vocal skills and bust out his Italian American accent!
Gotti is based on the story of real-life mobster boss, John Gotti. Travolta has snagged the plum role, and his wife Preston will play Gotti’s wife, Victoria. The casting announcements for the project have changed dramatically over recent years. At one time Lindsay Lohan, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci were in talks. From the film’s IMDb page, the only other actors still attached are Chazz Palminteri and Ella Bleu Travolta.

We’ve known for quite some time now that Denzel Washington would lead the big-screen remake of cult 1980s series The Equalizer. A few months ago Antoine Fuqua was finally confirmed to reunite with his Training Day Oscar-winner and named the director after both Nicolas Winding Refn and Rupert Wyatt’s failed to agree terms in negotiations. Less than a week ago we learned Chloe Grace Moretz would portray the teen hooker needing the desperate help of Washington’s retired operative Robert McCall, previously played by the late, great Edward Woodward.
Well, we now know the sadistic villain of the piece will be a member of the Russian mafia, with New Zealander Marton Csokas taking on the role. The actor is best known for his roles in The Lord Of The Rings, The Bourne Supremacy and The Debt. He was most recently seen in the under-loved yet enjoyable Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter »

1989 was the last time people got to watch The Equalizer on their TV screens, and while it.s taken a while for this film version to become a reality, Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington are finally putting it together, and it has some potential to be an interesting flick. But Washington is usually only as powerful as his opposing force. That force has been met, and his name is Marton Csokas (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring), according to The Hollywood Reporter. The New Zealander has been in tons of popular films over the past decade or so, though he.s usually kept to more generic roles. He.s currently filming Marc Webb.s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and has both Darren Aronofsky.s Noah and Robert Rodriguez.s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For coming to theaters before Spider-Man.

Harry Potter star relishes fresh challenge in Sofia Coppola movie about celebrity-obsessed thieves
If the Harry Potter franchise was one of the most overwhelming cinematic phenomena of recent history, the films' plucky Hermione, Emma Watson, shows no sign of being swamped by her past.
Speaking before the premiere, Watson said: "Harry Potter feels like such a long time ago; so much has happened in the last three or four years, but obviously it's still very present, it's still being played in people's living rooms. I'm not trying to run away from it … but it's that I've had such an amazing three or four years having a chance to transform into new roles and work with new creative people. »

Speaking with Empire Online, Breaking Bad actor Mark Margolis talks about reuniting with Darren Aronofsky on his anticipated Biblical epic Noah that's also based on the Black Swan director's graphic novel. "I play a 12-foot god," Margolis told the site, "[and] most of my character will be created through CGI." The actor plays a fallen angel called 'Samyaza', who Empire describes as "leader of a posse of six-armed angels known as the 'Watchers'. They're a giant breed of angels who have been at odds with God since the Fall - 'Samyaza' is another name for Satan - and likely to be a source of trouble for the Almighty, and Russell Crowe's Noah too." Margolis then discusses filming all of his scenes with Crowe and playing a 12-foot CGI character. "All of my scenes are with Russell [Crowe], who I found to be a very funny guy. They used me and my »
The 23-year-old "Harry Potter" actress stars in Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," which premiered Thursday at the French Riviera festival. The British actress plays a celebrity-obsessed, thickly accented Los Angeles teenager who, with a group of friends, burgles Hollywood stars such as Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.
At Cannes, Watson told reporters that while she remains proud of her work on the "Potter" films, they now feel long ago.
"I'm not trying to run away from it," she said. "I've just had an amazing three or four years. I'm really re-enjoying having the chance to transform into new roles and work with new creative people."
"The Bling Ring" is based on a Vanity Fair article about the true story of teenagers who »
Proof that anything a mutated neutrino and Roland Emmerich can do, God can do better (and first), Darren Aronofsky's Noah is currently at the pointy end of production. The whole shebang is coalescing into something seriously intriguing - after all, we're talking about the director of Pi, Requiem For A Dream and Black Swan tackling the first ever apocalypse - and our spies tell us that even the big guy upstairs is excited to be involved. Someone else with a tingle of anticipation is Breaking Bad stalwart and old Aronofsky hand Mark Margolis, who plays a fallen angel known as Samyaza in the film. As he explained to Empire, he won't look anything like Breaking Bad's wheelchair-bound enforcer. "I play a 12-foot god," he said, "[and] most of my character will be created through CGI."Shooting in Iceland, Margolis took the mantle of leader of a posse of six-armed angels known as the 'Watchers'. »
Hermione actor of Harry Potter series switches to the vain and amoral as celebrity-fixated Hollywood gangster
Were she a real person rather than one of the protagonists of the most successful film franchises in history, Hermione Granger would in all likelihood blanch at the latest movie role taken on by Emma Watson.
The 23-year-old actor, who played the bookish Hermione across eight instalments and 11 years, is now the star of Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, a dazed and subtly disturbing tale of real-life burglary, privilege and celebrity which is heading this month for the Cannes film festival.
The picture tells of a gang of teenagers preying on the Hollywood homes of stars such as Paris Hilton (who was singled out for repeat visits), Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom. From these figures they swiped more than $3m (£1.9m) worth of cash and goods using only chutzpah and the internet: once »
