Michael Fassbender To Star In Entering Hades

Academy Award-Winning ‘Birdman’ Writer Alexander Dinelaris to Pen Script
as Potential Fassbender Starrer

Broad Green Pictures has closed the rights to Entering Hades, a project based on John Leake’s true crime novel. Storyscape Entertainment’s Bob Cooper (Amistad, John Tucker Must Die) and Richard Saperstein (Se7en, Hancock, 1408) have teamed up with Conor McCaughan (Assassin’s Creed, Slow West) and Daniel Emmerson (Assassin’s Creed) of Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender’s DMC Film to produce the film. Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman, The Revenant), who recently celebrated an Academy Award win for his work on Birdman, is rewriting the screenplay with Fassbender eyed to star. Bill Wheeler wrote the original script.

Entering Hades is the true story of Jack Unterweger, a celebrated Austrian journalist and best-selling author who led a double life investigating murders by day and killing by night – amassing a body count of 11 people across multiple continents.

“With Bob and Richard’s vision and Michael’s keen ability to bring captivating characters to the big screen, we are confident that Entering Hades will be an entertaining thriller that draws a big audience,” said Gabriel and Daniel Hammond, CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Broad Green Pictures.

Cooper and Saperstein added, “This is exactly the kind of elevated commercial material that we are looking to produce through our deal with Broad Green. Michael Fassbender is one of today’s most talented actors and we are thrilled to be in partnership with him, as well as Conor and Daniel, to bring this extraordinary story to the screen.”

Entering Hades is the first project announced by Broad Green Pictures and Storyscape Entertainment since inking a first-look deal late last year to produce feature films on behalf of the studio.

Mister Smith Entertainment will handle international sales.

First Look At Rene Zellweger As Judy Garland

Renee Zellweger would be taking on the challenge of playing Judy Garland in a new biopic called, simply, Judy. If you wondered what she'd look like, you now have the chance.

Director Rupert Goold has now kicked off shooting the film in London, working from a script by The Crown's Tom Edge. The story is set in 1968 as Garland arrives in chilly, swinging London to perform at a sell-out run of her show. It's 30 years since she appeared in The Wizard Of Oz, and if her voice isn't quite the same, her intensity has grown.

She faces battles with her management and charms the musicians she works with, while also starting a romance with Mickey Deans, who will go on to be her fifth husband. Yet she's also haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood and struggling with the desire to be back home with her kids.

Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock and Michael Gambon are also in the cast, with no word yet on a release date.
