The production of 'Jane Got a Gun' has been under the microscope as its original director Lynne Ramsay left the movie just as shooting was to commence, while Michael Fassbender quit the production shortly before filming was to start and Jude Law dropped out once Ramsay walked off the set. But it looks like everyone who dropped out has been replaced as Bradley Cooper is stepping into Law's part.
To watch 'The Place Beyond the Pines' is to observe characters making discoveries. Discoveries about their past, their environment, their heritage. When the revelations come they aren't met with gasps or dropped objects, but with an understanding, an acceptance that, yes, this is, indeed, the way things are.
While you'd swear with every bone in your body that this vast, rich, symbol-heavy tale was surely based on a thick doorstopper of a novel, the surprising fact remains that it is, actually, an original screenplay. It seems, though, a natural progression after the character portraiture of Derek Cianfrance's last film 'Blue Valentine.' This new one has the essence of 'Blue Valentine' but blown open far and wide.
Though 2012's awards season has only recently come to an end, that doesn't mean filmmakers and studios aren't already plotting 2013's Oscar campaign. And it looks like David O. Russell wants to win a little gold statue as -- for the third time in four years -- he's got a new film scheduled to come out at the end of the year.
This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.
The first poster for 'The Hangover Part III' does an excellent job of being exactly what you wouldn't expect. Instead of the Wolf Pack standing around in various states of disarray (as was the case with the last two films), the poster is a pretty spot-on parody of the one-sheet for 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two,' with Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong standing in place of Harry Potter and Voldemort.
In 2009, Bradley Cooper went from utility handsome guy into movie star with his turn in Todd Phillips' 'The Hangover,' and in 2012 Cooper became an Oscar nominee for his work in 'Silver Linings Playbook.' It looks like before 2015 Cooper plans to add another feather to his cap as he's looking to direct his first feature film.
Jennifer Lawrence is emerging as the clear frontrunner to win Best Actress at the 2013 Oscars for her role in 'Silver Linings Playbook' alongside Bradley Cooper. So what will she do as a follow-up? Lawrence has signed on to reteam with Cooper and her 'Silver Linings' director David O. Russell on the upcoming film 'American Bulls--t.'
It wasn't long ago that Chris Kyle, author of the bestselling memoir 'American Sniper' and referred to as the deadliest Navy SEAL sniper, was tragically shot and killed at a gun range in Texas. In a time where gun control has become a significant point for debate, Kyle's death had a resounding effect around the country, including with Bradley Cooper, who picked up the movie rights to Kyle's book not too long ago.
In response to his death, Cooper, who was reported to portray Kyle in an 'American Sniper' movie, has decided to fast-track the production of the project, in which he plans to portray the ex-Navy SEAL.
