Sony Pictures has unveiled 5 clips and over 15-minutes of behind-the-scenes “B-Roll” footage from ‘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.
In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees its chance to build a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.
According to THR, Garrett Hedlund has been offered the role of Captain Hook in ‘Pan,’ Warner Bros. Pictures’ gritty Peter Pan origin story that is slated for a July 17th, 2015 release. Joe Wright, who previously directed ‘Pride & Prejudice,’ ‘Atonement,’ ‘The Soloist,’ ‘Hanna’ and ‘Anna Karenina,’ is tackling the project, which centers on how Pan and the man who becomes Captain Hook start out as friends, with Hook working as a member of the crew on Blackbeard’s pirate ship.
Hugh Jackman has been courted for the role of Blackbeard, but is unconfirmed. In the script from Jason Fuchs, Blackbeard is the film’s villain. Garrett Hedlund can currently be seen in the Coen brothers’ ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ and has a role in the Angelina Jolie-directed drama ‘Unbroken,’ slated for December 2014.
After recently premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival to stellar reviews, this first poster has arrived online for Justin Simien’s ‘Dear White People.’ Starring Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Kyle Gallner, Teyonah Parris, Brandon Bell, Malcolm Barrett, Brittany Curran, Justin Dobies, Marque Richardson, Dennis Haysbert and Peter Syversten, ‘Dear White People’ follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African American” themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.
I’ve heard nothing but great things about this film, so fingers crossed there’s word on release details shortly! The official statement for ‘Dear White People’ can be read below a Sundance Google Hangout video for the film.
Regal Cinemas has debuted this new trailer for Mark Waters’ (Mean Girls) ‘Vampire Academy.’ Based on the best selling Young Adult book series by Richelle Mead, ‘Vampire Academy’ stars Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Olga Kurylenko, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Sarah Hyland, Joely Richardson, Cameron Monaghan, Sami Gayle, Claire Foy and Ashley Charles. Opening on February 7th in the US and April 23rd in the UK, the synopsis for ‘Vampire Academy’ is as follows.
‘Vampire Academy’ tells the legend of Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch) and Lissa Dragomir (Lucy Fry), two 17-year-old girls who attend a hidden boarding school for Moroi (mortal, peaceful Vampires) and Dhampirs (half-vampire/half-human guardians). Rose, a rebellious Guardian-in-training and her best friend, Lissa – a royal vampire Princess – have been on the run when they are captured and returned to St.Vladamirs Academy, the very place where they believe their lives may be in most jeopardy. Thrust back into the perils of Moroi Society and high school, Lissa struggles to reclaim her status while Rose trains with her mentor and love-interest, Dimitri (Danila Kozlovsky), to guarantee her place as Lissa’s guardian. Rose will sacrifice everything to protect Lissa from those who intend to exploit her from within the Academy walls and the Strigoi (immortal, evil vampires) who hunt her kind from outside its sanctuary.
While nothing has firmed up just yet, Twitch Film bring word that there is persistent talk that the film’s producers and backer 20th Century Fox have zeroed in on Swedish director Daniel Espinosa to take the helm on the ‘Assassin’s Creed,’ the big-screen take on the popular Ubisoft video game that has Michael Fassbender attached to star. Espinosa originally burst on to the Hollywood radar with his 2010 Swedish action thriller ‘Snabba Cash’ (Easy Money), a massive international hit which led to Espinosa taking the helm of Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington-starring hit ‘Safe House.’ His next film, ‘Child 44,’ opens this year and stars Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, Vincent Cassell and his ‘Snabba Cash’ and ‘Safe House’ actor Joel Kinnaman.
Set for a summer 2015 release, Ubisoft’s Eli Richbourg, Frank Marshall, Michael Fassbender and his partner Connor McCaughan are producing. The plot for ‘Assassin’s Creed’ centers on a bartender who is captured by a secret corporation and sent back in time to relive the memories of his ancestors – all of them assassins – and retrieve ancient artifacts. Two years ago Ubisoft invested in launching UMP (Ubisoft Motion Pictures), headed by Jean-Julien Baronnet, former CEO of Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp, to adapt the company’s games into films, TV shows and digital projects. Adaptions of the games ‘Splinter Cell’ and ‘Ghost Recon’ are also in the works, with Tom Hardy set to lead ‘Splinter Cell’ and Michael Bay attached to produce with an eye to direct, depending on scheduling and the script, ‘Ghost Recon.’
Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have today announced plans for a special comic book prequel to their upcoming ‘Godzilla.’ Director Gareth Edwards himself made the announcement, which you can view below. Titled ‘Godzilla: Awakening,’ the comic book is co-written by Greg Borenstein and Max Borenstein (the screenwriter of the forthcoming movie). Set decades before the film, the book is timed to hit shelves on May 7th, just before the feature film’s release on May 16th.
Described as an epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic ‘Godzilla,’ the adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. The key cast for ‘Godzilla’ includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Sally Hawkins and Bryan Cranston.
