Here is the latest in Movie News, Movie Casting, Movie Rumors from the last week in the Film Industry
It’s always great when you see a column stating that the losses of a movie may not be “as bad as feared.” Such is the case with the debacle known as Disney’s John Carter.
And just like that, Jake Gyllenhaal is out of Albert Hughes’ Motor City and Jeremy Renner is talking about taking the lead. Does anyone want this role? First Chris Evans, the Dominic Cooper, then Jake…
Speaking of Renner, he was in talks for the role Brad Pitt is now eyeballing. That of Cormac McCarthy’s The Counselor lead Westray, to be directed by Ridley Scott. And it’s those last words that make me feel down about the project.
More dudes in the news, as Colin Farrell (now underrated as an actor) is looking to fill a lead role in Arthur and Lancelot. Directed by David Dobkin from his own script.
Independent filmmakers can take note of the success of The Duplass Brothers. They eschew convention to create their own path. Their latest Jeff, Who Lives at Home continues to serve notice.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorcese remain co-conspirators with them both committing to The Wolf of Wall Street for an August start date. Good news I suspect.
