While Warner Bros. still struggles to get its live-action 'Akira' remake up and running, DreamWorks is moving ahead on an adaptation of another classic anime, 'Ghost in the Shell.' Director Rupert Sanders ('Snow White and the Huntsman') is developing the project with 'Wolf of Wall Street' star Margot Robbie in talks to play the lead.
Following her breakthrough performance in Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' Margot Robbie is quickly becoming someone to watch. Audiences weren't the only ones taking note of the 23-year-old actress' ability to go toe to toe with Leonardo DiCaprio in the film: Robbie is now being eyed for the role of leading lady opposite Alexander Skarsgard in the upcoming 'Tarzan' live-action film.
From those getting their long-awaited big breaks to newcomers making a splash, this next heap should be closely watched come Oscar time and in the years to come.
Once director Alan Taylor finishes with all the 'Thor: The Dark World' promotional rounds, he'll reportedly have to deal with 'Terminator 5' next (though he's been a bit wary of officially stating he's on board). But who will be the new faces of this next installment, besides Arnold Schwarzenegger, of course? A new report has emerged pointing fingers at some of the hottest names of the moment, including some from 'Game of Thrones,' '21 Jump Street' and 'The Wolf of Wall Street.'
The 'Fantastic Four' reboot may have gone through a tumultuous scripting process, with Simon Kinberg the latest writer brought in on the project, but with a March 2015 release looming, the cast will need to fall into place shortly if they're going to make the date. And now five new names (and two old ones) have been mentioned for the roles of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm/Invisible Woman and Johnny Storm/The Human Torch.
