Closely following yesterday’s “Athens Will Burn” banner, Warner Bros. Pictures has unleashed this latest banner for ’300: Rise of an Empire,’ the upcoming follow-up to Zack Snyder’s ’300.’ Planned for a March 7th release, ’300: Rise of an Empire’ stars Rodrigo Santoro returning as Xerxes, Sullivan Stapleton as Themistokles, Jack O’Connell as Calisto, Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo, David Wenham as Dilios, and Eva Green as Artemisia.
’300: Rise of an Empire’ is based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel that takes Xerxes, the Persian leader who is an antagonist in ’300,’ and turns him into more of a pivotal figure. He’s a man in search of godhood after the death of his father, battling an Athenian warlord named Themistokles. The story takes place over the course of several years, but the focal point is the battle of Artemisium, which occured in 480 BC. Previous reports had Zack Snyder – who in my eyes done a fantastic job with ’300′ – pegged to direct until Warner Bros and producer Christopher Nolan signed him up to helm ‘Man of Steel.’ Noam Murro (five-time DGA nominated commercials director) is on board to direct the film.
After acquiring at Sundance the Lynn Shelton-directed ’Laggies’ with Keira Knightley, Chloe Moretz and Sam Rockwell, and the Gillian Robespierre-directed comedy ’Obvious Child,’ Deadline are reporting that A24 has acquired domestic distribution rights to ’A Most Violent Year,’ the drama written and directed by ‘All Is Lost’ and ‘Margin Call’ helmer J.C. Chandor. The film stars Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, and apparently the plan is to release the film late this year, giving A24 a likely horse in the next Oscar race. ‘A Most Violent Year’ starts shooting shortly.
Set in 1981, when violence and corruption in New York City ran rampant, the story follows the ambitious owner of an oil company who must protect his business and his family from his competitors as they violently try to run him out of business. The film finds him and his wife crossing paths with high-powered lawyers, wealthy bankers, dangerous teamsters and a shady district attorney.
Awesome IMAX Poster For ‘RoboCop’ – Starring Joel Kinnaman, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman & Abbie Cornish
Sony Pictures and IMAX have unleashed this new poster for ‘RoboCop,’ which hits the big screen on February 7th in the UK and February 12th in the US. ’RoboCop’ is directed by José Padilha and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. The screenplay is by Joshua Zetumer, based on the 1987 motion picture written by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner.
This latest behind-the-scenes featurette has arrived online for writer-director-star George Clooney’s ‘The Monuments Men,’ which is set for February 7th in the US and February 14th in the UK. Co-written by Grant Heslov, the film’s stellar cast also includes Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and John Goodman. Based on the book ‘The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History’ by Robert M. Edsel, the film concerns the story of the “Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program, an Allied group, tasked with saving pieces of art and other culturally important items before their destruction by Hitler during World War II.
The true action-thriller focuses on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys – seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 – possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.
Daniel Radcliffe is pegged to star in ‘Brooklyn Bridge,’ which is to be directed by Douglas McGrath. Inspired by true events, it details the story of a brilliant but inexperienced engineer who is left to oversee the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge when his father passes away. Besieged by calamity, danger and doubt, his obsession to get the job done threatens his health and his family until he discovers an improbable ally in his charming and shrewd wife. The film is set to shoot in August 2014 and subsequent casting announcements, including the lead actress, are in the works.
