It was recently reported that the lead quartet for 20th Century Fox’s upcoming reboot of ‘The Fantastic Four’ has been set, with Miles Teller cast as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing. Linked to the role for what seems like almost a year now, some fans have been critical about the ‘Fruitvale Station’ and The Wire’ stars casting as Johnny Storm. Speaking on a panel recently in Rome, Italy, Michael B. Jordan quite brilliantly addressed the racial backlash (comments and video via Cinefilos.it/translation via Superherohype).
“It was expected. You kinda know going into it that people are used to seeing something one way, it’s a continuity thing more than anything. People don’t like change too much. But annoyed? Eh, you just kinda accept it, it is what it is. You can’t make everybody happy. You just gotta accept that and know. I’m an actor, I have to do my job. I’m going to do my job the best I can and the way I’ve been doing it my entire life, my entire career. I grew up a comic book guy, I read comic books as a kid growing up, and the Fantastic Four/Human Torch is one of my favorite characters so I’m going to give it my everything. I can’t wait. I don’t really let it bother me at all. I just want to go into it and do the best job I can. We’ll see what happens.”
Alright, I’ll admit it, I’m utterly obsessed with this show. With the finale closing in, here’s three pieces by Nagy Norbert for HBO’s ‘True Detective.’ The eighth and final episode, “Form and Void”, airs in North America on March 9th. The series is currently gearing up to its third episode on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
Warner Bros. Pictures has just sent over this striking UK poster and trailer for ‘Grace of Monaco,’ which has the prestigious job of being the opening film at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Starring Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth, Frank Langella and Paz Vega and directed by Olivier Dahan (La Vie En Rose), ‘Grace of Monaco’ arrives in the UK and Ireland on June 6th – the Weinstein Company are releasing the film in North America, but no date has been set yet. The top-notch supporting cast for the biographical film also includes Parker Posey, Derek Jacobi, Roger Ashton-Griffiths, and Milo Ventimiglia.
Set in 1962, six years after her celebrated Wedding of the Century, GRACE OF MONACO is an intimate snapshot of a year in the life of the twentieth century’s most iconic Princess – Grace Kelly – as she strived to reconcile her past and her present, a yearning for a return to the big screen with her newfound role as a mother of two, monarch of a European principality and wife to Prince Ranier III.
Fox Searchlight has uploaded this new “Behave” TV spot for the rather fantastic ‘Starred Up,’ which hits cinemas in the UK and Ireland on March 21st. ’Starred Up’ is the story of a young man, Eric (Jack O’Connell), who is prematurely transferred from a young offenders’ institution to adult jail for being too violent. As he struggles to assert himself against the prison officers and the other inmates, he has to confront his own father Nev (Ben Mendelsohn), a man who has spent most of his life in jail. As Eric forges allegiances with other prisoners, and learns that his rage can be overcome through his work with prison therapist Oliver (Rupert Friend), he discovers the new rules of survival. But there are forces at work that threaten to destroy him.
The film is directed by award-winning UK filmmaker David Mackenzie (Young Adam, Hallam Foe, Perfect Sense) from a screenplay written by first-time scriptwriter Jonathan Asser, who has a background in the prison system working as an innovative therapist. The title comes from the process of prematurely upgrading a teenager from a Young Offenders’ Institution to Adult Prison. Expect word on international release dates shortly. This is definitely one to give a peep!
Along with the announcement that the first trailer for ‘Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For’ will arrive online tonight at 8pm EST (which if my timezone transferring abilities are on point, clocks in at 1am GMT), Robert Rodriguez has took to his official Twitter account to unveil this first peak at Jamie Chung as Miho. Often referred to as “Deadly Little Miho” by the character Dwight McCarthy, Chung replaces Devon Aoki as the mute assassin in the sequel. Accompanying the pic, Rodriguez tweeted: “Tomorrow at 8p ET I’ll be tweeting out the world premiere trailer for #SinCity2: A Dame to Kill For. Stay Tuned!”
The main ‘Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For’ cast includes the original ‘Sin City’ cast members: Mickey Rourke as Marv, Jessica Alba as Nancy, Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Rosario Dawson as Gail and Jaime King as Goldie/Wendy. New cast members include: Eva Green as Ava Lord, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, Dennis Haysbert as Manute, Christopher Meloni as Mort, Jeremy Piven as Bob, Stacy Keach as Wallenquist, Jamie Chung as Miho, Ray Liotta as Joey, Juno Temple as Sally, Julia Garner as Marcy, and Josh Brolin as Dwight. The film arrives on August 22nd via Dimension Films. The brief official synopsis for the film is as follows.
‘Captain Phillips’ Writer Billy Ray To Script The Leonardo DiCaprio & Jonah Hill-Starring ‘The Ballad Of Richard Jewell’
Early last month it was first reported that ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are set reunite on a 20th Century Fox project titled ‘The Ballad Of Richard Jewell,’ which is based on Marie Brenner’s 1997 Vanity Fair article ‘American Nightmare: The Ballad Of Richard Jewell’ (you can read it here). Today Variety have caught wind that ‘Captain Phillips’ screenwriter Billy Ray has been tapped to pen the script for the real-life drama. DiCaprio, Hill and Ray were all nominees at this past Sunday’s Academy Awards.
Jonah Hill is pegged to play the title subject, a security guard who discovered a backpack in the Olympics compound in Atlanta in 1996. Initially hailed a hero for reporting the suspicious knapsack and then helping clear bystanders from the area before it exploded, saving many people from injury or death, Richard Jewell was subsequently vilified just three days later as a potential suspect, his life and reputation torn apart in the advent of the 24-hour news cycle. Leonardo DiCaprio will play the lawyer out to clear his name. Eventually Brenner was completely exonerated and Eric Robert Rudolph was later found to have been the bomber. In 2006, Governor Sonny Perdue publicly thanked Jewell on behalf of the state of Georgia for saving the lives of those at the Olympics.
