Zoe Saldana Joins Live By Night

Even as he fights evil and possible Batsuit chafing in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Ben Affleck is keeping one eye on his next job, which will be Dennis Lehane adaptation Live By Night. He’s begun casting on the film, hiring Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller and Elle Fanning for three key roles.

The plot finds Lehane taking some of the characters from previous novel The Given Day and tracking them into the Prohibition era. Our main focus is Joe Coughlin, a police captain’s son who finds himself caught up in organised crime as part of a rum-smuggling organization that transports booze from Cuba to Boston via Florida.

Miller is set to play Emma, a girl Joe falls for and who just so happens to be the girlfriend of his mobster boss. Awkward! Saldana will be Graciella Suarez, who Coughlin meets in Tampa when he moves into the Floridian crime structure. Fanning, meanwhile, will be sheriff’s daughter Loretta Figgis, an aspiring actress who finds herself in a world of trouble.

It’s no shock t…

It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the s…

Vin Diesel As The Last Witch Hunter

When you hire Vin Diesel as your lead actor, you know you’re not just getting his gravelly line delivery and mesomorphic frame. You’re also getting a social media soldier ready to post pics and dangle tantalising hints about his projects on Facebook. He’s now released the very first image from his latest gig, The Last Witch Hunter.

The movie, which Breck Eisner is currently shooting, finds Diesel as an immortal warrior who finds himself in present-day New York having to face down a powerful witch queen intent on unleashing a terrible plague that could wipe out the human race.

His chief ally in the fight, however, is a female witch (Game Of Thrones’ Rose Leslie), who teams up with him to help take down the rising evil. German actress Julie Engelbrecht recently joined the film to play the main villain, with Elijah Wood, Michael Caine and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson already all aboard.

The Last Witch Hunter doesn’t have a set release date yet, but it should be out next year. Until then, we’re…

CHiPs Film Is On It's Way

Though it was pondered around the same time that fellow cult shows Starsky & Hutch and The Dukes Of Hazzard were being transferred from the telly vaults to big-screen comedy versions, highway patrol series CHiPs never quite made it down that road. Warner Bros. is hoping Dax Shepard is the man to help it happen, hiring him to write, direct and star in an adaption of the cop series.

In addition to writing the script and calling the shots, Shepard will star as Officer Jon Baker (originally played by Larry Wilcox), who along with partner Frank “Ponch” Poncherrello kept the highways of California free of crime and other problems with their rumbling motorcycles and groin-crippling khaki uniforms between 1977 and 1983.

While Erik Estrada is the man most recognizably identified as Ponch (and we’d bet good money on him showing up in some cameo capacity), Michael Peña is taking on the role for the film. Incidentally, Shepard is a keen, professional-level race driver, so we won’t be too surp…

New Trailer For Horrible Bosses 2

Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business in the sequel. But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor's adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.

HBO Documentary Films "The 50 Year Argument" Trailer

The 50 Year Argument (HBO Documentary Films)trailer has arrived.



The 50-year history of The New York Review of Books is chronicled by co-directors Martin Scorsese and David Tedeschi in The 50 Year Argument, which takes viewers behind the scenes with the journal’s editor Robert Silvers and many of the writers and pundits who have collaborated on the publication through the years.

Prison Break Reunion Heading To THE FLASH

A Prison Break reunion is coming to TV — on The Flash, that is.

Dominic Purcell has boarded The CW comic-book drama as a DC Comics villain, reuniting with his Prison Break co-star Wentworth Miller in the 10th episode. This marks the first time Purcell and Miller, who played brothers Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield, will have appeared together since Prison Break ended in 2009.

Purcell will play Mick Rory, a pyromaniac who finds an outlet for his obsession with fire when he teams up with Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Miller) and becomes the villain known as Heatwave. Miller was cast in The Flash back in July and makes his debut in episode four. Purcell's character will also be heard from in that same episode.

In DC Comics lore, Heatwave is a member of the Rogues, led by Captain Cold. Heatwave has been featured in animated form on shows such as Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
Other major Prison Break castmembers have been featured in the Arrow/The Flash…

New #Arrow Season 3 Trailer

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) making the move on his trusted tech whiz Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards). While in the middle of another high-speed chase in Starling City, Oliver doesn't waste a second in asking Felicity out on that date.

Watch the clip after the Jump...

"Do you like Italian?" he asks innocently while racing through an abandoned backstreet on his bike. "Oliver, you're in the middle of a high-speed chase," Felicity says, slightly taken aback. Oliver's response? "I'm multitasking." In another moment, Oliver — lightening up a little — takes an early leave after some late-night crime-fighting only to have Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) drop in this gem: "Do you have a hot date or something?" As the trailer — set to Death From Above 1979's "Trainwreck 1979" — suggests, it's a new day in Starling City in season three. Diggle (David Ramsey) puts it best when he says there are two types of crimin…

Jessica Chastain Is In Talks To Star In The Martian

Jessica Chastain is in early talks for the female lead opposite Matt Damon the Fox sci-fi pic “The Martian.”

Story is based on the e-book by Andy Weir about an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars and must figure out how to stay alive long enough to get back home.

Ridley Scott is directing.

Simon Kinberg, who has been with this project from the begining and brought the book to Scott, will producer alongside his exec Aditya Sood through Kinberg’s Genre Films banner. Fox exec Steve Asbell will oversee the project for the studio.

Since Scott’s commitment, the project has quickly come together and should get a greenlight once all the deals are locked in.

Chastain has been particular about what roles she commits to, leaning more towards prestige fare like “Lawless,” “Tree of Life,” “Zero Dark Thirty” and “A Most Violent Year,” which bows later this year.

More recently, she has been moving towards larger-scale projects such as Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” which bows in November.
