Alicia Vikander Set To Join Michael Fassbender In Derek Cianfrance’s ‘The Light Between Oceans’ Adaptation
Alicia Vikander is reportedly in talks to join Michael Fassbender in ‘The Light Between Oceans,’ DreamWorks’ adaptation of the M.L. Stedman novel. Derek Cianfrance, who previously wrote and directed the sublime ‘Blue Valentine’ and ‘The Place Beyond the Pines,’ is helming and adapting the drama. Fassbender has a number of projects on the horizon, including ‘Slow West,’ ‘Macbeth,’ ‘Trespass Against Us,’ an untitled Terrence Malick movie, and ‘Assassin’s Creed.’ Vikander is also set to star in ‘The Danish Girl’ opposite Eddie Redmayne. She recently wrapped the WWII drama ‘A Testament of Youth’ and also has the historical romance ‘Tulip Fever,’ ‘Seventh Son,’ ‘Ex Machina,’ and Guy Ritchie’s ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’ movie coming up.
M.L. Stedman’s novel, published last July to stellar reviews, is set on an island off the coast of Western Australia after World War I. A lighthouse keeper (Fassbender) and his wife (Vikander) find a 2-month-old girl and a dead body in a rowboat and decide to raise the baby as their own. But what seems like a blessing soon turns tragic, as morality and love are tested. With Derek Cianfrance, Michael Fassbender and potentially Alicia Vikander on-board, ‘The Light Between Oceans’ has jumped to the top of my “most anticipated films in development” list.

Marvel Studios President Updates On Thanos, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, Potential Guardians Of The Galaxy Sequels…
Speaking today at Barcelona’s CineEurope, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige provided a number of updates about Marvel’s upcoming slate of movies. With “Phase 2″ of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe wrapping up with this summer’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and 2015’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ expect a number of “Phase 3″ announcements at Comic-Con next month. “Phase 3″ will kick off with ‘Ant-Man’ on July 17th, 2015. Additionally, ‘Captain America 3′ is currently in development and eyeing a May 6th, 2016 bow. One additional, untitled film is set for release in 2016 (‘Doctor Strange’?), with two more slated for 2017.
On the potential of a ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ franchise, Kevin Feige said, “Every time we make a movie, we focus on the single movie, the importance of doing the best version we can to introduce a new audience to the characters. So we don’t have, necessarily, two or three or four movies planned because if we have a good idea – a fun idea for a scene or a cool character – we put it in this movie because we know if the first movie doesn’t work, there won’t be any movies after that.”
After writing a draft of the screenplay for ‘Moneyball,’ Academy and Emmy-award winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin is said to be in negotiations to adapt another Michael Lewis book, ‘Flash Boys,’ the bestseller that deals with the practice of high-frequency trading on Wall Street and how it became a way to rig the system. Lewis’ book revolves around a group of men on Wall Street including Sergey Aleynikov, a one-time programmer for Goldman Sachs, and Brad Katsuyama, the founder of IEX, the Investor’s Exchange.
Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing the film. Rudin, who has his first-look deal at Sony, executive produced ‘Moneyball’ and is a frequent collaborator with Aaron Sorkin, having worked together on ‘The Social Network’ and the HBO series ‘The Newsroom.’ They also have an untitled Steve Jobs project in the works at the studio that Danny Boyle is directing. The official synopsis for the ‘Flash Boys’ book is as follows:
