A couple of hours ago the trailer for Bennett Miller's 'Foxcatcher' leaked online, and then was pulled. It seems there's a good reason for that. The film, which stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, is nowhere near finished and the picture has been delayed from December 20 into 2014 so Miller can finish editing the film.
As suggested by the first-look photo from Bennett Miller's upcoming 'Foxcatcher,' funnyman Steve Carell is an unlikely choice to portray real-life murderer John DuPont, the heir to the DuPont Chemical fortune who killed Olympic wrestling champion David Schultz. However, it is this unexpected casting that melded with both Miller's vision for his lead and the film.
There have been many names thrown out, from 'Attack the Block' helmer Joe Cornish to David Cronenberg, but it's being reported that 'Catching Fire' is now down to two directors. Those two are the two we reported yesterday as being added to the shortlist: Francis Lawrence and Bennett Miller.
Mark Ruffalo has been a great actor who's had smaller parts in big movies and big parts in small movies, but it looks like 'The Avengers' is going to change all that. His latest project could be Bennett Miller's 'Foxcatcher' where he would be playing against Steve Carell and 2012's poster-boy Channing Tatum.
