According to THR, Willem Dafoe is joining Matt Damon and Pedro Pascal in Zhang Yimou’s ‘The Great Wall,’ a passion project of Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull. The script for ‘The Great Wall’ is by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro, but the most recent draft is by Tony Gilroy, who is familiar to Damon via the ‘Bourne Identity films. ‘The Great Wall’ is fantastical retelling of the origin of China’s wondrous barrier.
Matt Damon will star as a soldier who is part of a group of mercenaries traveling to China in order to bring back gunpowder to Europe. When the group is attacked by mystical beasts, the man finds himself in a war between a secret warrior clan and the beasts. Dafoe’s character role is being kept under wraps.
The Wrap bring word that Mahershala Ali and Keri Russell have joined Matthew McConaughey and Gugu Mbatha-Raw in writer-director Gary Ross’ ‘Free State Of Jones.’ The film is based on the incredible story of Newton Knight (McConaughey), who’s best known as the leader of the Knight Company, a band of Confederate Army deserters that turned against the Confederacy during the Civil War. To avoid capture, the Knight men would disappear into swamp hideouts such as “Devil’s Den” or “Panther Creek.” The Knight Company was aided by sympathetic local people, whites and blacks. In particular, a slave woman named Rachel (Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s role) helped supply Newt with food and information. On the run, he rallied the support of fellow deserters to lead an uprising against their former comrades, in the process creating a free safe haven.

Last month we heard that production on the upcoming ‘Deadpool’ film will be set up in Ryan Reynolds’ home town of Vancouver.

Seeing as we’re exactly a year away from the film’s release, Ryan Reynolds has taken to Twitter to reveal a sneak peek at the titular character’s mask. A disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary, Deadpool originally appeared as a villain in an issue of ‘New Mutants,’ and later in issues of ‘X-Force.’ The character has since starred in several ongoing series, and shares titles with other characters such as Cable.
