The story for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
After signing on to direct the upcoming fifth ‘Mission: Impossible’ film, Deadline are reporting that Christopher McQuarrie has been pegged to write and helm ‘Star Blazers,’ the live-action adaptation of the space-set 1970s anime TV series ‘Space Battleship Yamato.’ McQuarrie, Josh Klein, David Ellison and Dana Goldberg will produce the film under Skydance Entertainment.
In a futuristic setting, Earth’s atmosphere has been obliterated by a distant alien race, and the survivors have one year before radiation will reach their underground refuge and wipe out the human race. The survivors get a shot of hope in the form of alien technology that can deliver a small crew across the universe and back with the means to stave off extinction. The intention is to hatch a franchise from a series that was ahead of its time, coming before ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Battlestar Galactica.’ Expect more details shortly.

‘Thor: The Dark World’ continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor” and ‘The Avengers,’ Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos… but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness.

Embankment Films send word that Daniel Radcliffe is attached to play British politician and four-time Olympic gold medalist Sebastian Coe in ‘Gold.’ To be directed by James Watkins, with whom Radcliffe previously worked with on ‘The Woman in Black,’ the Simon Beaufoy and Will Davies-scripted film is described as follows:
“Sebastian Coe (Daniel Radcliffe), obsessive and nurtured, is a quiet loner driven to the limit of endeavour by his ambitious father. Steve Ovett, effortless and natural, is a confident joker and outsider, fighting to prove himself in an elitist world. Both are fuelled by rivalry but burdened by the weight of expectation and fear of failure. Lovers, family loyalties and the human spirit are tested to breaking point in a relentless race for glory. Inspired by a crescendo of real-life events – a movie about winning, losing and the pursuit of immortality.”
First reported back in June, The Wrap has confirmed that Tom Hardy will lead ‘The Outsider,’ which marks the English-language debut of Japanese director Takashi Miike.

The project, originally set up at Warner Bros Pictures, will be financed by Worldview Entertainment to shoot in Japan in early 2014.
Takashi Miike has helmed more than 60 Japanese-language films including ‘Ichi the Killer,’ ’13 Assassins’ (one of my favorite films) and ‘Audition.’ Tom Hardy next stars in ‘Locke’ and the franchise reboot ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ He also stars in the Dennis Lehane-scripted and Michael R. Roskam-directed ‘Animal Rescue’ opposite Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts and James Gandolfini, and in the Daniel Espinosa-directed ‘Child 44.’
