Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have confirmed the casting line-up for Duncan Jones' upcoming movie take on the Warcraft videogame. And as it turns out, some of the rumours that were doing the rounds had just a little substance to them.
The film is now set to star Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel (from the Vikings TV show), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Rob Kazinskey (Pacific Rim) and Toby Kebbell (The Counsellor). Furthermore, discussions are nearly done with Dominic Cooper - soon to be seen again in Captain America: The Winter Soldier - as well.
The film has recently been pushed back to a March 11th 2016 release date - you can blame Star Wars: Episode VII for that - but Jones (who has »

Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures just announced that they've closed deals with Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (The Counselor), and Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim) for writer-director Duncan Jones' Warcraft. Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) is also in final negotiations to star. Production is scheduled to begin in Vancouver this coming January. Warcraft will open March 11, 2016. Hit the jump for more. Unfortunately, no casting details are available at the moment, and the order of the casting announcement is not indicative of the final film's billing. News out of BlizzCon 2013 did tell us that the Warcraft film adaptation would tell “the story of Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games.” Your guess is as good as mine as for who will be taking on which role when the film kicks into gear. »

Details of the plot are still unknown. Studios have been trying for some time to get an adaptation of the Blizzard Entertainment game “World of Warcraft” off the ground, with Sam Raimi attached to direct at one point.
Production is slated for early 2014.
Cooper is repped by CAA and can »

They join a cast which so far includes Travis Fimmel and Paula Patton. Jones (Source Code) is directing Warcraft from a script by Charles Leavitt, while Legendary and Universal will distribute the movie which begins shooting next year.

First there was the best....and now the comes the worst. While Mary Pols stoked internet fury last year by naming "Cloud Atlas" the top stinker of 2012, hardly anyone will argue with her choice this year: "Grown Ups 2." In fact, the rest of her list is pretty debate proof. From Ridley Scott's verbose and empty "The Counselor," to Sam Raimi's CGI-drenched "Oz The Great And Powerful" to worst three-quel ever "The Hangover Part III," these were undeniably all pretty awful movies. Perhaps the biggest bone of contention will be Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives" ranking in there. Divisive? Certainly. But one of the year's worst? Surely, "The Smurfs 2" could've been slotted instead? Anyway, take a look below and let us know what you think in the comments section. Full commentary on each choice over at Time.

The Writers Guild of America has remained tough on qualifying scripts for its screenplay awards, excluding more than a dozen high-profile scripts, including John Ridley’s screenplay for “12 Years a Slave.”
The guild’s restrictions — far more rigorous than other guilds — require that scripts be produced under WGA jurisdiction or under a collective bargaining agreement in Canada, Ireland, New Zealand or the U.K. The WGA had no immediate comment on the exclusions, but the restrictions on eligibility are a longstanding practice at the guild.
Other notable screenplays excluded include Peter Morgan’s screenplay for “Rush”; Ryan Coogler’s script for “Frutivale Station”; “Philomena,” written by Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope and “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” penned by William Nicholson.
Voting to determine the WGA’s nominees launched Tuesday on 95 eligible screenplays — 41 in the adapted category and 54 in the original category. The guild’s restrictions also require that the »

The Gotham Independent Awards, the annual New York event that kicks off awards season, looked more like the Oscars this year — or at least the star-studded Independent Spirit Awards — with a roster of attendees that included Forest Whitaker, Ethan Hawke, Jared Leto and Shailene Woodley.
But unlike so many other awards shows intent on predicting future Oscar winners, the ceremony sponsored by Independent Filmmaker Project stayed true to its roots by honoring a batch of quirkier winners.
Joel and Ethan Coen’s “Inside Llewyn Davis,” a musical comedy starring Oscar Isaac, won best film. “Twelve Years a Slave,” which was nominated for the most (four) Gothams and is considered the Academy Awards frontrunner, was completely shut out of the gala at Manhattan’s Cipriani Wall Street. It even lost the night’s audience award to “Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings,” a little-seen documentary about a ukelele virtuoso.

In this series Team Experience sounds off (individually) on their favorite fringe Oscar contenders. Here's Tim Brayton asking you to consider "In a World..." The Spirit Awards did, nominating it in this very category...
What’s a talented comic actress with no good parts coming her way supposed to do, anyway? If you answered, “write herself a damn starring role, already”, then you’re on the same page as Lake Bell, the immensely likable and talented star of the TV series Childrens Hospital, making her feature debut as writer, producer, and director with In a World… Though for all her hypens, it’s as screenwriter that Bell most impresses with this project, a hugely ambitious affair all around despite how utterly low-key and normal it all feels.
There are three things happening here all at once, and the script pays equal attention to all of them. First, In a World… »

As Evan Rachel Wood has found to her dismay, cunnilingus as a form of oral sex still remains taboo in Hollywood – so how can it go mainstream?
• Evan Rachel Wood on Hollywood's cunnilingus censorship
Yesterday, actor Evan Rachel Wood launched a Twitter polemic against the ratings board in the Us, the MPAA, for necessitating the removal of a scene where her character in Charlie Countryman receives oral sex. The edit was presumably made so the film avoids the Nc-17 rating that would effectively bar it from many mainstream cinemas.
It's a microcosmic example of a much wider issue: cunnilingus is de facto arthouse. Even coming from the surprisingly stilted world of intra-male sex chat, it's clear that among my twentysomething peers this is a thoroughly mainstream, necessary part of modern sex – ignoring the fact that most men thoroughly enjoy it. And yet Hollywood, with its lumbering moral turning circle, hasn't come round to the idea. »

[Editor's Note: The Fyc series brings together all Film Experience contributors to highlight our favorite fringe Oscar contenders. Here's Glenn Dunks on Xavier Dolan's latest]
Anybody who knows me knows I have been trumpeting Xavier Dolan’s trans epic Laurence Anyways since I saw it back in January. I experienced a lot of emotions during this gloriously decadent and painfully intimate affair on the big screen (as one should expect from a three-hour movie). Yet what caught me most off guard was the romanticism with which it painted images through costume. Oh sure, Dolan’s previous films had a way with the fashions – the suburban chic duds of I Killed My Mother and the hipster vintage of Heartbeats - but never had their colours felt so radical, their intent so cutting, their stories so vivid.
So many of my lasting memories of Laurence Anyways rotate around the clothes. In fact, the first thing we see of our lead character are the clothes. There’s the symbolic baby blue business attire with hot pink accentuated shoulders in the opening scene. »

[Editor's Note: The Fyc series brings together all Film Experience contributors to highlight our favorite fringe Oscar contenders. Jose Solis asks you to reconsider Cameron Diaz's supporting performance in The Counselor.]
It’s not only her scenery chewing, her car-fucking skills, her ability to pull off excess jewelry and animal print or the lustful-yet-motherly way in which she looks at her pet cheetahs. It's her commitment to this insanity that makes Cameron Diaz brilliant in The Counselor. Playing the heartless envoy from hell, Malkina, she creates one of the most compelling visions of evil contemporary cinema has given us. Because her evil seems to have roots in a horrifying childhood (her parents were thrown out of a helicopter!) she escapes the burden of just being a universal symbol of cruelty (a la Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men). She even shows us a glimpse of what might be underlying human qualities underneath her faux-bronzed skin when she shows envy and certain disappointment at not being able to love the way her friend Laura (Pé) does. Diaz delivers Cormac McCarthy »
The thriller “The Counselor” follows a lawyer (Michael Fassbender) who finds himself in over his head after getting involved in a dangerous drug deal. Novelist Cormac McCarthy wrote the unconventional screenplay; Ridley Scott directed the film. “Ridley was very respectful of Cormac and wanted to make sure that his vision and Cormac’s vision were properly merged,” says producer Nick Wechsler. “It is the first produced screenplay from this very esteemed writer, and we have a grand master as a director, so there were a lot of people who wanted to be in this movie.” Although the film stars Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, and Brad Pitt, casting director Avy Kaufman came on to the project before anyone was attached and started the casting process from scratch. “[It] was not easy, but [it was] fun looking for these ‘character types,’ ” Kaufman says of the very specific, criminally minded types being cast. »
