pouts scowls were always going to be heading our way.

‘The Great Gatsby’ follows F. Scott Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, in the midst of the roaring twenties, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, he tells a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
Baz Luhrmann directs the ‘The Great Gatsby’ from a screenplay co-written with frequent collaborator Craig Pearce, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel of the same name. Lead by Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, ‘The Great Gatsby’ also stars Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Joel Edgerton and Carey Mulligan as Tom and Daisy Buchanan, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke as Myrtle and George Wilson, newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker, and Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan as Meyer Wolfsheim. ‘The Great Gatsby’ arrives in cinemas on May 10th in the US and Canada, with an international rollout on May 15th (May 16th in the UK).
Do you remember when you first read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel? Also, how important was it for you to return back to the original source material to help you shape your portrayal of Tom Buchanan?
Joel Edgerton: I read it first when I was in my early 20s, and then again when I was much older… I was in my early 70s, this is all botox (laughs)! But honestly, I thought it was definitely important to go back to the source material. There are many clues for the character in there, and I often believe that all the information you hopefully need for a character should be contained within the pages of the script, and then in this case you’ve got the book – which is a bonus. Baz would also refer to the longer unedited version of ‘The Great Gatsby’ that was called ‘Trimalchio.’ It was all about finding clues and putting them in your basket, you know?
Deadline bring word that Luke Evans is in negotiations to play Eric Draven in Relativity Media’s re-imagining of ‘The Crow.’ Based on the James O’Barr comic book series that was previously adapted as a 1994 movie starring Brandon Lee, ‘The Crow’ follows a man who returns from beyond the grave to avenge his death. The likes of Tom Hiddleston, Alexander Skarsgard and James McAvoy were all previously rumored for the role.
Luke Evans was just cast as the lead in ‘Dracula Year Zero,’ and he’ll next be seen on the big screen as the villain in ‘Fast & Furious 6′ and as Bard the Bowman in ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.’ Acclaimed Spanish filmmaker F. Javier Gutierrez (Before the Fall) is directing ‘The Crow’ from a script by Cliff Dorfman (Warrior), though it’s possible that other writers will be credited as well. Production is tentatively scheduled to begin early next year.
Director James Mangold has tweeted this new stylized poster design for ‘The Wolverine,’ featuring the villainous Silver Samurai. Mangold captioned the poster with: “As we are beginning to offer glimpses of Silver Samurai, here’s a new great one sheet image for
#thewolverine” Alongside Hugh Jackman’s Logan/Wolverine, the film stars Hiroyuki Sanada as Shingen, Hal Yamanouchi as Yashida, Tao Okamoto as Mariko, Brian Tee as Norubo Mori, Will Yun Lee as Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai, Rila Fukushima as Yukio, and Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper. Scheduled for release on July 26th, ‘The Wolverine’ is directed by Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, Knight and Day), while the script is by ‘The Usual Suspects’ scribe Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback.
Describing ‘The Wolverine’ as a “Japanese noir picture with tentpole action in it”, James Mangold recently said the film is set after the previous X-Men movies. ‘The Wolverine’ takes inspiration from Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s Marvel miniseries from the 1980s dealing with the character’s adventures in Japan. There, samurai steel clashes with adamantium claws as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed. The official synopsis for ‘The Wolverine’ can be read below.
