Ahead of the release of the film later this month, Paramount Pictures has set loose the following “Living One-Sheet” for the Dwayne Johnson-lead ‘Hercules.’ Just this morning I was fortunate to attend a press event for the action-adventure epic, and from the footage I’ve seen it looks a tonne of fun (fingers crossed it lives up to its promise). My interviews for ‘Hercules’ will be up the site shortly.
Directed by Brett Ratner, ‘Hercules’ will be distributed worldwide on July 25th. The likes of Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Aksel Hennie, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, and Reece Ritchie star. Based on the graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars,” the film is a revisionist take on the classic myth.
Scott Cooper’s ‘Black Mass’ Set For September 2015 – Starring Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton…
Currently filming in the town of Lynn, Massachusetts, Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that ‘Black Mass,’ the drama Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace) is directing about the Boston crime kingpin-turned-fugitive Whitey Bulger, has been set for a September 18th, 2015 release date. ‘Black Mass’ will open on the same day as another highly anticipated film: Baltasar Kormákur’s (The Deep, 2 Guns, Contraband) epic adventure ‘Everest.’ The cast for that film includes the likes of Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Martin Henderson, Emily Watson, Sam Worthington, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly and Thomas M. Wright.
Alongside Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger, ‘Black Mass’ also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Scott, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson, Juno Temple and Jesse Plemons. Edgerton will play John Connolly, the FBI agent and childhood pal of Bulger, who is in prison for tipping Bulger that he was about to be indicted. That led Bulger to go from ruthless Boston crime kingpin to the top of the FBI’s most wanted list. Cumberbatch will portray Billy Bulger, Whitey Bulger’s law-abiding brother and a Massachusetts State Senator.
According to a new report, Warner Bros. Pictues has hired ‘Stalingrad’ and ‘The 9th Company’ director Fedor Bondarchuk to helm ‘Odysseus,’ an epically-scaled feature film adaptation of Homer’s ‘The Odyssey.’ Jeremy Doner, writer and producer on the series ‘The Killing,’ is penning the script for the Russian director. ‘The Odyssey’ is one of two major ancient Greek epic poems attributed to Homer, and is, in part, a sequel to the ‘Iliad,’ the other work ascribed to the great Greek poet. Scholars believe ‘The Odyssey’ was composed near the end of the 8th century BC.
The legendary poem mainly centers on the Greek hero Odysseus and his journey home after the fall of Troy. It takes Odysseus ten years to reach Ithaca after the ten-year Trojan War, where he comes across cannibals, sea monsters, sirens and a cyclops. In Odysseus’ absence, it is assumed he has died, and his wife Penelope and son Telemachus must deal with a group of unruly suitors who compete for Penelope’s hand in marriage. Expect more news about this adaptation shortly.

Warner Bros. Pictures has set loose this first trailer for ‘Horrible Bosses 2,’ the follow-up to the 2011 comedy ‘Horrible Bosses.’ The film reunites Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as everyone’s favorite working stiffs: Nick, Dale and Kurt. Jennifer Aniston and Oscar winners Jamie Foxx and Kevin Spacey also reprise their ‘Horrible Bosses’ roles, while Chris Pine and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz star as new adversaries standing between the guys and their dreams of success. Opening on November 28th, the synopsis for ‘Horrible Bosses 2′ is as follows.
Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business in “Horrible Bosses 2.” But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.
