Brie Larson & Ben Kingsley Join ‘Brooklyn Bridge’, Mackenzie Davis Set For ‘The Martian’ & Margaret Qualley In Talks For ‘The Nice Guys’
A slew of casting appointments/reports have hit the web, so here’s a quick roundup. First up, Brie Larson and Ben Kingsley have joined Daniel Radcliffe in ‘Brooklyn Bridge,’ which is to be directed by Douglas McGrath. Inspired by true events, it details the story of a brilliant but inexperienced engineer (Radcliffe) who is left to oversee the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge when his father (Kingsley) passes away.

Production is scheduled to begin next Spring.
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.
