Britt Hayes Biography
Now that the first Star Wars spinoff has an official title and an official leading lady, it’s about time for the project to get into gear and add a few more faces. Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn might just be the first name to join the cast opposite Felicity Jones, which is a very, very exciting prospect if you’ve paid any attention to Mendelsohn’s work at all.
Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are two of the most talented actors working right now, so the idea of them eventually combining their talents for one film just makes sense. Early last year, the actors were set to star together in Ezekiel Moss, which was intended as the directorial debut of Philip Seymour Hoffman before his tragic passing. But now they've found another opportunity to team up on the big screen with director Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals.
You might not remember Alien Nation, the 1988 sci-fi buddy cop film which paired a human police officer with an alien partner in a not-too-distant future. The film, originally produced by The Walking Dead and Terminator producer Gale Anne Hurd, isn’t a film that immediately shouts “remake” — it’s not based on a comic book, existing franchise, superhero, toy, YA novel or a film that makes thirtysomethings feel nostalgic. But if you’re determined to remake a movie, this is the kind of movie that feels okay to remake.
A new Friday the 13th sequel has been in the works for a long while now with The Signal director David Bruckner attached to direct. We only recently began to hear more about the upcoming project via producer Brad Fuller, who’s been assuring fans that yes, this sequel is definitely, finally happening. To make us a little optimistic about the new installment, Hannibal writer Nick Antosca has been hired to pen the screenplay.
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson recently popped up during Paris fashion week reprising their Derek and Hansel characters from Zoolander to officially announce production on the sequel. It looks like the pair stuck around Paris for a while longer to do a little additional posing for the camera, as evidenced by these new photos featuring Stiller, Wilson and their ridiculously good-looking faces.
Jubilee is one of the more wildly divisive characters from X-Men — you either love or loathe her to pieces. Throughout five X-Men films and a few spinoffs, Jubilee has never really been featured, although she did put in some very minor appearances in the first few films. That’s all changing now as director Bryan Singer has cast newcomer Lana Condor as Jubilee for X-Men: Apocalypse.
Earlier today, we reported the rumor that not only has Captain Marvel been cast, but she’ll be making her first appearance in the already superhero-heavy Avengers: Age of Ultron. Having major superheroes make cameos or debut in other films from their respective studios has become the norm, so it’s hardly surprising to hear that X-Men: Apocalypse — which is said to primarily focus on the First Class cast — will feature a few cameos from other X-Men…including one pretty exciting mutant in particular.
Ready or not, the Entourage movie is coming. The latest trailer has arrived, boasting parties, booze, yachts and lots of famous faces. It’s like a Where’s Waldo? of cameos in there, from Bob Saget to George Takei to Liam Neeson to…Bob Saget. But enough name-dropping, already. This movie also has a story to tell, and that story is about Vinnie Chase, director.
Last September, it was reported that Key & Peele creators and stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele were working on bringing their wildly popular “Substitute Teacher” sketch to the big screen. It’s just one of a few projects the comedy duo is currently developing, but it’s now taken the next step: Substitute Teacher is officially becoming a movie thanks to Paramount.
Spring Breakers director Harmony Korine’s next project may have just lost Jamie Foxx, but it also just attracted a bunch of great names. Idris Elba will take Foxx’s role as a gangster rapper in The Trap, which also just added Korine’s Manglehorn co-star Al Pacino, Spring Breakers star James Franco, and Robert Pattinson. Oh, and it also stars Benicio del Toro. What a cast.
