Last week it was announced that writer-director David Ayer’s DC Entertainment flick ‘Suicide Squad’ will open on August 5th, 2016. Ayer was the writer of ‘Training Day,’ and he both penned the script and directed ‘End of Watch’ and ‘Fury.’ Closely following that official announcement, a report indicated that Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie and Will Smith had all been approached for roles in the film. Of course, just because Ayer and Warner Bros are interested in these names, that doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll be seeing any of them actually sign on.
And with that casting rumor in mind, Huy “Wee” Dinh has put together the above speculative “Ryan Gosling as Deadshot” piece. Huy had the following to say about the above artwork: “Ryan Gosling Deadshot concept! Another speculative Suicide Squad casting. I wanted to keep his design slick and simple, but still keep a lot of his “signature” details, such as the wrist guns, cybernetic eye and his gold and red colors. Oh, and his goatee! Cheers, thanks for looking!”
Directed by Stiles White and starring Shelley Henning, Olivia Cooke, Daren Kagasoff, Douglas Smith, Bianca Santos and Ana Coto, ‘Ouija’ is penciled in for an October 24th release in the US and an October 31st bow in the UK. ‘Ouija’ follows a group of friends who must confront their most terrifying fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board.
Paramount Pictures has unveiled this NSFW teaser video and first poster for ‘The Gambler,’ Rupert Wyatt’s (The Escapist, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) remake of the 1974 James Caan film. Starring the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Brie Larson, Jessica Lange, John Goodman, and Michael K. Williams, the script for the crime drama is written by Oscar winner William Monahan (The Departed).
Mark Wahlberg leads the film as Jim Bennett, a literature professor whose gambling addiction is spiraling out of control. The dynamo in the lecture hall is leading a double life, blowing his family fortune and money borrowed from dangerous lenders. ‘The Gambler’ is slotted for an awards season-friendly limited release December 19th in the US. It’s apparently scheduled for release in the UK on May 1st, 2015, yet I imagine that will be pushed forward.
‘Nightcrawler’ tells the story of a Jake Gyllenhaal’s character, a young man who finds a home in the nocturnal world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles. Opening on October 31st in the US and November 14th in the UK, ‘Nightcrawler’ is directed by Dan Gilroy (previous writing credits include ‘Real Steel,’ ‘The Fall,’ ‘The Bourne Legacy’) in his directorial debut. Alongside Gyllenhaal, the likes of Rene Russo, Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmed also star.
NIGHTCRAWLER is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling — where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.
