The Penguin Won’t Be The Only Villain In The Batman

Though official announcements for Matt ReevesThe Batman have been few and far between for the past year, it’s long been rumored that the Caped Crusader’s upcoming solo movie will serve as the Dceu debut for Oswald Cobblepot, aka the Penguin, and in the wake of Reeves handing in his second draft for the script, it’s very much looking like this is the case.

What’s more, a new report from Heroic Hollywood has relayed intel that The Batman will feature another major villain whose identity remains under wraps. So until we receive further news on the matter, fans are free to present their theories and fan art on this unknown antagonist.

Jack O’Connell Still Top Choice To Replace Ben Affleck As Batman

Though the rumor emerged in October that Jack O’Connell of Starred Up and Unbroken fame was being eyed to replace Ben Affleck as the lead of The Batman, the idea was quickly cast into doubt by reports to the contrary, and with little evidence in recent months to back up the claim, most DC fans have since let the idea go.

Nonetheless, according to sources close to We Got This Covered, O’Connell is still the top choice for the title role in Matt Reeves’ film. While the casting has yet to be confirmed, it’s said that both Warner Bros. and Reeves think the actor’s right for the part, and if they don’t land O’Connell, they’re at least likely to go with someone aged 25-30. What’s more, it’s believed that whoever the studio ends up casting, the choice will be announced around May or June.

"Love Is A Gun" For 'Bonnie and Clyde'

  • SneakPeek
Chloë Grace Moretz of "Kick-Ass" fame and Jack O’Connell ("Unbroken") will star as moronic, 1930's killers, bank robbers 'Bonnie And Clyde' in director Kiké Maillo's "Love Is A Gun", adapting author Jeff Guinn's novel "Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story Of Bonnie And Clyde", targeting an early 2019 start:

Marissa McMahon and Ashley Schlaifer of Kamala Films ("A Private War") are producing with Sean and Bryan Furst ("Daybreakers") for Skybound Entertainment.

The dim-witted bank-robbers killed at least nine police officers and several civilians.

A snapshot of the couple found at an abandoned hide-out, with pistol-toting Bonnie smoking a cigar, was subsequently distributed to the press, positioning the unmarried outlaws on the national media scene, launching their brief careers as 'fun-loving' criminal superstars.

Without Bonnie, the media outside Texas might have dismissed Clyde as a gun-toting punk...

...but a steady stream of photographs kept the media and the Depression-era public wanting more.

Chloë Grace Moretz and Jack O’Connell Will Play Outlaws Bonnie and Clyde in a New Film Called Love Is A Gun

There’s a new Bonnie and Clyde film in development called Love is a Gun and the two legendary outlaws will be played by Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) and Jack O’Connell (Unbroken).

This movie is is based on a book called Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story Of Bonnie And Clyde from author Jeff Guinn. The script for the movie is being written by Sheldon Turner (Up In The Air) with revisions by Johnny Newman (Narcos) and Kiké Maillo (Eva) is directing.

There hasn’t been a Bonnie and Clyde movie made since Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway’s classic 1967 film. I’m kinda surprised it’s taken so long to tell their story on the big screed again.

Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Chestnut Barrow were notorious criminals who traveled central U.S. with their gang during the Great Depression, robbing banks and killing when cornered or confronted.

Bonnie and Clyde Movie Pairs Chloë Grace Moretz with Jack O’Connell

Tony Sokol Oct 30, 2018

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow turned a depression-era crime spree into an American legend. Love Is A Gun continues the tale.

"I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde," Desmond Dekker and the Aces sang in their 1969 reggae hit "Israelites." Unless it's in the movies. Arthur Penn's 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde, which starred Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway as Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, broke the boundaries of stylized violence to expand the gangster movie genre. Chloë Grace Moretz and Jack O’Connell are attached to star as the iconic thieving lovers in Love Is A Gun, coming from director Kiké Maillo, according to Variety.

Love Is a Gun is based on Jeff Guinn's bestselling book Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde. The screenplay was written by Shelton Turner (Up in the Air), wit revisions by Johnny Newman

WB Eyeing Jack O’Connell To Replace Ben Affleck In The Batman

Is Jack O’Connell destined to become the next Batman?

That’s what the folks over at That Hashtag Show believe, as their sources tell them that Warner Bros. is eyeing the actor to play Bruce Wayne in The Batman. Of course, there’s no been confirmation from the studio on this just yet, but truth be told, ever since it was revealed that Ben Affleck had checked himself into a rehab facility, we’ve come to expect a changing of the guard – it’s really a question of when, rather than if, at this point.

Already, Kit Harington and Ryan Gosling have been ruled out, while Star Wars alum Oscar Isaac is seemingly no longer in contention for the much sought after role, either. That means Matt Reeves is still searching for his new Batman, especially since Affleck appears closer to the exit door than ever before.

The Predator Doesn't Quite Kill It at the Box Office with a Measly $24M
The Predator had a bumpy ride before it even made it to the big screen, but the Shane Black-helmed film was able to secure the number one spot at this weekend's box office, earning just over $24 million in its debut weekend. The sci-fi thriller was only projected to make about $26 million, so it came in way under expectations. However, overseas, The Predator brought in an additional $30.7 million, bringing its worldwide opening to $54.7 million. The Nun took in an impressive $18.2 million in its second weekend at the box office, which was plenty enough to take the second spot.

A Simple Favor debuted at number three this weekend, earning $16 million. The black comedy mystery thriller stars Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick, who have both been getting great reviews for their performances. The number four spot for the weekend went to the debut of White Boy Rick, which took in $8.8 million. Matthew McConaughey stars in the film,

The Predator” was able to fend off “The Nun” at the domestic box office.

Shane Black’s “The Predator” launched with a tepid $24 million from 4,037 North American locations. That was easily enough to top the weekend box office, but not enough to land a franchise-best debut. That distinction still belongs to 2010’s “Predator” with $24.7 million (not including the two “Alien vs. Predator” crossover films). Overseas, “The Predator” earned $30.7 million for a global start of $54.7 million. It will need to generate big business internationally to justify its $88 million production budget.

Warner Bros.’ “The Nun” dropped to second place, picking up $18 million in its second weekend for a domestic tally of $85 million. It continues to find success abroad, amassing another $33 million this weekend, taking its global total to $228 million. Meanwhile, Lionsgate’s “A Simple Favor” debuted at No. 3 with $16 million on 3,102 screens. Another new offering, Matthew McConaughey’s “White Boy Rick,” rounded

Inside the Marketing for Faith-Based 'Unbroken' Sequel

“I joke that it’s the first time the theatrical sequel to a hit movie cost 90 percent less than the original,” says Matthew Baer of his new film Unbroken: Path to Redemption, a so-called spiritual successor to the 2014 drama directed by Angelina Jolie.

That math is pretty accurate given that the production budget on Unbroken, which Baer also produced, was $65 million to Unbroken 2’s $6 million.

Although the stakes are lower this time around, there’s still pressure for Unbroken 2 to mark the next faith-based breakout. That’s because the sequel’s story, also based on ...

Film Review: ‘Unbroken: Path to Redemption’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Unbroken: Path to Redemption’
As Paul Harvey used to say: And now, the rest of the story. “Unbroken: Path to Redemption” serves as a kinda-sorta sequel to “Unbroken,” Angelina Jolie’s harrowing 2014 drama about the War II experiences of Louis Zamperini, the Olympian distance runner and Army Air Forces bombardier who survived 47 days on a life raft after his plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean, then endured two years of merciless torture in a Japanese Pow camp. This follow-up — which, like its predecessor, is taken from Lauren Hillenbrand’s nonfiction best-seller “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption” — focuses on Zamperini’s postwar struggles with alcoholism, crushing disappointment (an injury prevents him from competing in another Olympics), and recurring nightmares and hallucinations triggered by Ptsd.

There is a happy ending to the story — but, unfortunately, it doesn’t arrive nearly soon enough.

‘Unbroken: Path to Redemption’ Film Review: Low-Budget Sequel Oversells Its Message

  • The Wrap
Gratuitously prolific director Harold Cronk keeps cranking them out. Fascinated by supposedly undamaged people who turn out to be spiritually shattered given the absence of religious submissiveness in their lives, this month alone he’s behind two faith-based releases sporting such a premise: last week’s” God Bless the Broken Road,” and now “Unbroken: Path to Redemption.”

Both follow an individual’s transformation from sinfully reproaching God to realizing their woes are punishment for straying away from Him.

Produced with meager resources, “Path to Redemption” sneakily professes itself as a sort-of sequel to Angelina Jolie’s 2014 sophomore directorial effort “Unbroken,” even though they don’t share any cast members, below-the-line crew, or screenwriters. Most importantly, they are eons apart in storytelling dexterity, technical quality, and tone. Jolie’s feature was far from glorious and earned her mixed reviews, but it’s nonetheless an incomparably superior exercise in period filmmaking.
