Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures send word that they’ve closed deals for Daniel Wu and Clancy Brown to join the cast of ‘Warcraft,’ which is based on Blizzard Entertainment’s award-winning Warcraft universe. The script was written by Charles Leavitt and rewritten by Duncan Jones, who will direct. Production is set to begin in Vancouver this January.
Daniel Wu has twice been nominated for Best Actor at the prestigious Golden Horse Film Festival (Night Corridor, Like a Dream) and won the Golden Horse Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2004 with ‘New Police Story.’ ‘One Nite in Mongkok’ brought Wu a Best Actor nomination at the Hong Kong Film Awards.
DreamWorks and EA have released this new poster for the upcoming video game adaptation ‘Need for Speed.’ Directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) and starring Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Kid Cudi, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Michael Keaton, Dakota Johnson and Harrison Gilbertson, ‘Need for Speed’ is set for a March 14th, 2014 release.
Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” captures the thrills of the game in a real-world setting. An exciting return to the great car-culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when authenticity brought a new level of intensity to the action, “Need for Speed” taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing.
Universal Pictures has let out the hatch this collection of clips from Peter Berg’s ‘Lone Survivor.’ Starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana, the film tells the story of four Navy SEALs on an ill-fated covert mission to neutralize a high-level Taliban operative when they are ambushed by enemy forces in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan. ’Lone Survivor’ is based on The New York Times bestseller ‘Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of Seal Team 10.’ The film opens in limited theaters on December 27th before going wide in the Us on January 10th. It’s set for January 31st in the UK.
Based on The New York Times bestselling true story of heroism, courage and survival, Lone Survivor tells the incredible tale of four Navy SEALs on a covert mission to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda operative who are ambushed by the enemy in the mountains of Afghanistan. Faced with an impossible moral decision, the small band is isolated from help and surrounded by a much larger force of Taliban ready for war. As they confront unthinkable odds together, the four men find reserves of strength and resilience as they stay in the fight to the finish.
Hot on the heels of a report linking Joaquin Phoenix to the film, THR bring word that Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing ‘Argo’ writer Chris Terrio into the Batman-Superman universe. The Oscar-winning writer has been brought in to pen a draft of the ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up, the tentatively titled ‘Batman vs. Superman.’ Terrio has a strong relationship with the studio and the film’s star Ben Affleck. Affleck directed and starred in ‘Argo,’ which won last year’s best picture Oscar.
David Goyer wrote the ‘Batman vs. Superman’ screenplay, which is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (Superman) and Bob Kane (Batman). But sources say Terrio has been brought in to get the script in shape before filming begins in early 2014. Goyer has been tied up with a number of other DC Comics titles including ‘Sandman.’
Fox Searchlight Pictures has debuted, via Vulture, this new poster for Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel.’ The stellar cast for the film includes Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Saoirse Ronan, Tom Wilkinson, Mathieu Amalric, F Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban and Tony Revolori. A “Cast of Characters” trailer is arriving online tomorrow at 1PM ET/10AM PT/6PM GMT.
‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ tells of a legendary concierge (Ralph Fiennes) at a famous European hotel between the wars and his friendship with a young employee (Tony Revolori) who becomes his trusted protégé. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, the battle for an enormous family fortune and the slow and then sudden upheavals that transformed Europe during the first half of the 20th century. The film which opens on March 7th, 2014.
Highlighting Eva Green’s Artemisia, Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted this latest character poster for ’300: Rise of an Empire,’ the upcoming follow-up to Zack Snyder’s ’300.’ Planned for a March 7th release, ’300: Rise of an Empire’ also stars Rodrigo Santoro returning as Xerxes, Sullivan Stapleton as Themistokles, Jack O’Connell as Calisto, Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo, and David Wenham as Dilios.
’300: Rise of an Empire’ is based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel that takes Xerxes, the Persian leader who is an antagonist in ’300,’ and turns him into more of a pivotal figure. He’s a man in search of godhood after the death of his father, battling an Athenian warlord named Themistokles. The story takes place over the course of several years, but the focal point is the battle of Artemisium, which occured in 480 BC. Previous reports had Zack Snyder – who in my eyes done a fantastic job with ’300′ – pegged to direct until Warner Bros and producer Christopher Nolan signed him up to helm ‘Man of Steel.’ Noam Murro (five-time DGA nominated commercials director) is on board to direct the film. Snyder produces.
