First Trailer For The Supernatural Thriller ‘The Quiet Ones’ – Starring Jared Harris, Sam Claflin & Erin Richards
Yahoo! Movies has released this first trailer for writer/director John Pogue’s ‘The Quiet Ones,’ a supernatural thriller starring Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Olivia Cooke and Rory Fleck-Byrne. ‘The Quiet Ones’ is inspired by true events and tells the story of an unorthodox, but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy. The film follows on from Hammer’s worldwide box office hit, ‘The Woman in Black,’ which starred Daniel Radcliffe and has taken over $130 million at the box-office worldwide to date. ‘The Quiet Ones’ arrives in theaters on April 11th, 2014.
EW has unveiled these new images from ‘Unbroken,’ the upcoming true drama directed and produced by Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie. The film follows the epic drama of the life of Louis “Louie” Zamperini and is adapted from Laura Hillenbrand’s book, ‘Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. Set for December 25th, 2014, ‘Unbroken’ marks Angelina Jolie’s second turn behind the camera, after her critically-acclaimed directorial debut, 2011’s Golden Globe Award-nominated ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey.’
Originally published by Random House in 2010, the book follows the incredible life story of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII – only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. The book has sat atop The New York Times bestseller list for more than 135 consecutive weeks and is the sixth best-selling nonfiction title ever since the list began in 1942. It was also the winner of the Los Angeles Times Book of the Year Award for Nonfiction. Jack O’Connell, Domhnall Gleeson, Finn Wittrock, Garrett Hedlund, Jai Courtney and CJ Valleroy star.
Michael Fassbender To Star In The Gangster Film ‘Trespass Against Us; The Chemical Brothers Will Score
Variety are reporting that Michael Fassbender is in negotiations to star in the gangster film ‘Trespass Against Us.’ Fassbender would play the lead role of Chad Cutler in the film, which will be infused with action, crime and a strong sense of humor. The movie is set across three generations of the rowdy Cutler family, who live as outlaws — hunting hares, ram-raiding stately homes and taunting the police. The family have always lived this way but, defying the expectations of his father, Chad Cutler is looking for a way out of the criminal life. Music for ‘Trespass Against Us’ will come from The Chemical Brothers, who will write and perform the original score.
‘Trespass Against Us’ is penned by Alastair Siddons, who will produce alongside Gail Egan and Andrea Calderwood of Potboiler Productions. It is the narrative feature debut of hotly tipped UK director Adam Smith and is scheduled to shoot in the UK in 2014. Smith made his name directing music-related films like ‘The Chemical Brothers — Don’t Think,’ and promos for The Streets (‘Blinded by the Light,’ ‘The Irony of it All’), as well as episodes of ‘Doctor Who,’ ‘Little Dorrit’ and ‘Skins.’ Michael Fassbender is currently shooting ‘Slow West’ for director John Maclean in New Zealand, and will take on the leading role in ‘Macbeth’ for Justin Kurzel in January 2014.
