In June it was first reported that Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling were set to star in Shane Black’s 1970s-set noir flick, ‘The Nice Guys.’ Today we hear that a June 17th, 2016 release date has been penciled in for the film, confirming that ‘The Nice Guys’ will indeed be Shane Black’s next feature – he’s also attached to the film adaptation of the popular adventure book series ‘The Destroyer’ by Warren Murphy, a ‘Doc Savage’ film, and a new ‘Predator’ film.
Set in smoggy 1970s Los Angeles, the story follows Jackson Healy (muscle-for-hire, recovering alcoholic – Russell Crowe) and Holland March (private eye, practicing alcoholic – Ryan Gosling), who are brought together by the suicide of a fading porn star. However, the dead girl’s aunt is convinced she saw her niece alive and well after the highly publicized incident. March needs money, takes the case, and within days, it’s blossomed into a far-reaching murder conspiracy, bizarrely rooted in smog and the U.S. auto industry.
After releasing his English-language debut last year, ‘Stoker,’ Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, Thirst, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance) is reportedly moving forward with his next film – a Korean-language thriller based on Sarah Waters’ novel ‘Fingersmith.’ The original 2002 novel was set in Victorian London and centered on young women who are petty thieves (the “fingersmiths” title). Park’s adaptation will be set in Korea during the time of Japanese rule.
The film’s Korean title phonetically reads “Agashi”, meaning ‘young lady’ or ‘miss’. The English title has yet to be decided and the producers plan to start shooting in the first half of 2015. Back in 2005, the BBC brought ‘Fingersmith’ to TV screens with a 2-part miniseries featuring the likes of Sally Hawkins, Imelda Staunton, Elaine Cassidy, Rupert Evans and Charles Dance.

Universal Pictures has set loose this new clip from Lone Sherfig’s (An Education) ‘The Riot Club,’ the film adaptation of Laura Wade’s play ‘Posh.’ The play, which helped launched the careers of Kit Harington, Joshua McGuire, Tom Milson and David Dawson, centers around the fictional Riot Club – an elite Oxbridge dining society – which meets regularly in the a private dining room of a pub. ‘Posh’ is scripted by Wade, adapted from her own play, which opened during the 2010 General Election, where audiences and critics weren’t shy in drawing comparisons between the fictional Riot Club and the Bullingdon Club, of which Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson were members.
In this movie adaptation, the boys in penguin suits include Max Irons and Sam Claflin, as Miles and Alistair, first years at Oxford University determined to join the notorious Riot Club. During the course of a night at the Bull’s Head pub, ambition and avarice lead them down a dark path.
