According to Screen Daily, Robert Pattinson has joined Benedict Cumberbatch in ‘The Lost City Of Z,’ which James Gray will direct from a script he adapted. The film is based on the David Grann bestselling book. Cumberbatch is in talks to play Percy Fawcett, who in 1925 headed into the depths of the Amazon jungles in Brazil. Fawcett was there to map the jungle and, hobbled by malaria, he discovered a mythical city he called The Lost City Of Z. Scorned by peers who claimed that this ancient kingdom was a fraud, Fawcett headed back into the jungle with his son and one other, braving the dangers of disease, insects, snakes, poison darts and other hazards to reinforce his discovery. None of them were ever seen again and it remains one of the great exploration mysteries of the 20th Century. There’s currently no word yet as to who Pattinson will be playing.
Plan B‘s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner and Anthony Katagas (who worked with Benedict Cumberbatch on ’12 Years A Slave’) will produce. Plan B has been developing the project for several years, and it initially seemed like Pitt would be heading into the jungles. Source: The Playlist.
FilmDistrict has revealed this new “Last Call For Alcohol” clip from Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy.’ Arriving in cinemas on November 27th in the US and December 6th in the UK, the upcoming remake of Park Chan-wook’s cult classic stars the likes of Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L.

Jackson plays the head of the motel where Brolin’s character has been held hostage.
According to the Schmoes Know, not only will Wonder Woman be joining Batman in Zack Snyder’s ‘Man Of Steel’ sequel, the tentatively titled ’Batman Vs. Superman,’ Olga Kurylenko is said to be testing for the iconic role. If Wonder Woman is in fact joining the film, it’s unknown to the outlet if it’s a cameo or a more substantial role in the 2015 blockbuster. Plus, if Schmoes’ “inside source” is to believed (I’d take all rumors relating to ‘Batman Vs. Batman’ with a grain of salt at this moment in time), then Wonder Woman is joining Ben Affleck’s Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill’s Superman in the film, thus placing another brick in the foundation of a future ’Justice League’ movie. This rumor closely follows the reports that the ‘Thor: The Dark World’ star Jaimie Alexander is in discussions for an unknown role. Expect more news about the film shortly.
Olga Kurylenko, whose recent film credits include ‘Oblivion,’ Terrence Malick’s ‘To The Wonder,’ just finished filming ’Vampire Academy’ and ‘November Man’ opposite Pierce Brosnan. She will start work on Russell Crowe’s directional debut ‘Water Diviner’ when it begins shooting in Australia on December 2nd, then move on to ‘Momentum’ opposite Vincent Cassel and Shea Whigham early next year.
THR bring word that Dwayne Johnson is attached to star in MGM’s action project ‘Seal Team 666.’ Based on the book by Weston Ochse, the project follows an elite group of Navy Seals who battle demons and assorted threats and discover that there’s a greater supernatural force bent on destroying the world. Evan Spiliotopoulos, who penned MGM’s upcoming Johnson-starring action adventure movie ‘Hercules,’ wrote the screenplay for the adaptation. Johnson recently wrapped ‘Hercules,’ directed by Brett Ratner and the movie is set for a July 25th, 2014 release. The actor is currently shooting ‘Fast & Furious 7.’ The original novel is officially described as follows.
Halfway through SEAL training, Cadet Jack Walker, still green but showing incredible promise, is whisked away to join four SEALs and their dog for a special ops mission. Walker soon finds himself in a whirlwind of otherworldly creatures and events as he discovers the true nature of SEAL Team 666. Battling demons, possessed humans, mass-murdering cults, and evil in its darkest and most and ancient form, the members of SEAL Team 666 have their work cut out for them. And it’s not long before they realize that the threat isn’t directed against the US alone — an ancient and deadly cult has far bigger plans, and Walker is at the center of a supernatural conflict in which the entire world is at stake.
