Both have been especially busy of late: Wheatley just premiered “Free Fire” at the Toronto International Film Festival, while Hiddleston starred in AMC’s “The Night Manager” miniseries and has “Kong: Skull Island” on the way as well. “Hard Boiled,” a three-issue miniseries that was published by Dark Horse Comics between 1990 and 1992, tells of insurance investigator Carl Seltz, who lives in a dystopian Los Angeles and becomes a RoboCop-like cyborg tax collector with murderous tendencies, because why not.

Jennifer Aniston Defends NFL Stars In "Fixer"

Fox 2000 has acquired "The Fixer," a film starring Jennifer Aniston as former Miss USA contestant Denise White who rose to the top of the male-dominated world of professional sports management.

"Dallas Buyers Club" screenwriter Melisa Wallack created the pitch for the project which the studio acquired, along with White's life rights and a Men's Journal article "The Woman Who Bails Out The NFL's Bad Boys".

White became famous for establishing herself as a unflagging defender of her high-profile clients when their public images were in serious jeopardy.

There has been very early preliminary talks about James Gray possibly directing, but that seems too early to call. Aniston, Kristin Hahn, Steve Barnett and Bernie Goldmann will produce through Echo Films.

The Last Witch Hunter Official “Live Forever” Trailer Released

Vin Diesel returns to theaters this fall in the highly anticipated new film, The Last Witch Hunter – and he’s out to destroy the most powerful witches that ever walked the earth. Kaulder (Diesel) is the greatest soldier of the Axe and Cross. He is joined in his cinematic quest to rid the world of witches by a star-studded cast that boasts Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Julie Engelbrecht, and Michael Caine.

There’s a part of me that enjoys just about anything Vin Diesel appears in. For the most part, everything ends up entertaining. Yeah, he can sometimes seem a little full of himself and look like he’s taking things a bit too far over the top, but I always get the impression that he knows exactly what he’s doing in those situations and you can’t fault a guy for simply trying to entertain people.

Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the Queen curses Kaulder with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife.
