Now that Fargo casting Ewan McGregor finally gave us a heading (or rather, double-heading) on Season 3, the third year of FX’s Minnesota murder yarn starts to take shape. To wit, showrunner Noah Hawley previews the “sibling rivalry” between Ewans, as well as a smaller character drama than Season 2, and some potential Solverson returns down the road.
We’ve come to grips with the sad fact that FX’s Fargo will sit out 2016 for a Season 3 premiere next year, and Ewan McGregor has two reasons to brave the cold. The erstwhile Star Wars star will have not one, but two leading roles in Fargo Season 3 next year, the first full details of which have been uncovered from the snow.
Choose life. Choose hope. Choose sequels.
By now, you probably know all about some of the cameos in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, like Daniel Craig’s secret appearance and the actors behind the voice of BB-8. But there are a couple more hidden cameos you most likely didn’t notice — as it...
After suffering delays, director changes, casting changes, more delays and a studio bankruptcy, Jane Got a Gun is finally coming to theaters. Natalie Portman stars in the new western as a desperate woman who seeks the aid of an old boyfriend to help defend her homestead from the men who previously held her captive. The latest trailer for the film doesn’t do it much favors, between the generic heavy rock music and the generic DTV action flick font — but the actual footage still looks enticing, at the very least.
Director Danny Boyle and the cast of Trainspotting have been talking up a sequel in the press for years, to the point where it started to feel more like wishful thinking than anything else. But recent updates on the project have been quite optimistic, which makes today’s news not all that surprising: Trainspotting 2 is officially happening with Boyle, Ewan McGregor and the rest of the original cast.
Guillermo del Toro’s exit from Justice League Dark (aka Dark Universe) at Warner Bros. left many confused as to how — or if — the studio would proceed without him. But with the studio’s anti-hero blockbuster Suicide Squad generating excitement, a new rumor suggests that not only is WB moving forward with del Toro’s script, but they’ve also got their eye on at least a couple of potential stars.
Jane Got a Gun has had a very, very troubled production — from the departure of director Lynn Ramsay to cast changes and release delays, the film started to feel like one long, unfortunate practical joke, and it was unclear if we’d actually ever see this film hit theaters. With the recent collapse of Relativity Media, the uncertainty only grew, but The Weinstein Co. has swept in to save Natalie Portman’s western and given it a 2016 release date…for now.
Danny Boyle has been teasing us with the promise of a Trainspotting sequel for years, to be based on Irvine Welsh’s novel Porno, itself a sequel to Welsh’s source material for Boyle’s original film. The director has talked up the sequel so much with no actual momentum that it hardly feels like a possibility, but Boyle is at it again, and this time he says the Trainspotting followup is his next movie.
Ewan McGregor has had some opinions about Star Wars: The Force Awakens — primarily, he’s had a bone to pick about that crossguard lightsaber, which he doesn’t think is very necessary for a good Jedi. But nitpicks aside, the actor is totally open to returning to the Star Wars franchise, you know, if Lucasfilm is into the idea.
