Jude Law is Dom Hemingway, a drunken poet with anger issues -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Jude Law is a good-looking man. No doubt about it. But he’s always been more fun to watch when he plays ugly. Remember his Road to Perdition hitman, with the jungle-cat saunter and filed-down teeth?

In Dom Hemingway, which opens April 2, Law plays a notorious safe-cracker who’s suffered some bumps and bruises along the way. His nose is crooked, his hair is retreating, and when confronted, he clearly leads with his chin — or some other part of his face. After 12 years in prison, he’s back out — loud and brash — expecting some payback from the gangster gents he protected. But his triumphant return to the glamorous high life is disrupted by several turns, notably his pangs of obligation to his practically orphaned daughter (Emilia Clarke).

It’s a complicated story, but then, Dom Hemingway is a complicated man. Or maybe it’s a rather simple story and Dom is a very simple man. Either way, he’s not boring. “[The movie] is like going down to the pub with him, for an hour and a half,” says Jude Law. “It’s worth it.”

'Grand Budapest Hotel': Take a peek inside Wes Anderson's inn -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Grand-Budapest-Hotel-02When Wes Anderson thinks “hotel,” he doesn’t think bed bugs and low-pressure showers. He thinks luxury, in the way the best hotels used to be run.

“In those days, it was the hotel’s job to take care of all of your needs — before you even knew you needed them,” says Bob Balaban, one of the many familiar faces gracing Anderson’s latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel.

In the exclusive behind-the-scenes video below, see Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, and many more Anderson first-timers and favorites talk about why they needed to inhabit this world: READ FULL STORY

Jude Law beefs up to play a blue-collar mariner in 'Black Sea' -- EXCLUSIVE IMAGES

Jude Law is a handsome man. He’s got the look of a wealthy, privileged playboy and has been cast as such more than a few times in his career. So when The Last King of Scotland director Kevin Macdonald started looking for a blue-collar guy to take on the lead role in his submarine thriller Black Sea, it’s easy to understand why he was hesitant to even consider the golden boy.

“I wanted somebody in their middle age and who was British and who could convincingly be a blue-collar guy,” Macdonald told EW. “If you look around Hollywood, there aren’t very many who look like that and certainly not stars. I went to see him thinking ‘well Jude Law is great, but he’s not really him.’”

Jude Law exits 'Jane Got A Gun'

Jude Law has exited the new movie Jane Got A Gun, EW has confirmed. 

Problems arose on Monday, which was supposed to be the first day of shooting for the indie drama. Director Lynne Ramsay (We Need To Talk About Kevin) didn’t show up and apparently has quit the production, according to a Deadline report. The site also says that star Natalie Portman, who is co-producing the picture, and the rest of the team quickly were able to get Gavin O’Connor to step in as director as of this morning, but as evidenced by Law’s departure, problems are still ongoing.

“I have millions of dollars invested, we’re ready to shoot, we have a great script, crew and cast,” producer Scott Steindorff told Deadline about Ramsay’s departure. “I’m shocked and so disappointed someone would do this to 150 crew members who devoted so much time, energy, commitment and loyalty to a project, and then have the director not show up. It is insane somebody would do this to other people.”

Reps for O’Connor, Portman, Ramsay and Steindorff did not respond to EW’s request for comment.

Casting Net: Drew Barrymore to reunite with Adam Sandler; Plus, Emma Watson will not be the next Cinderella, Jude Law, more

• Drew Barrymore is set to re-team with Adam Sandler for a new comedy about Jim and Lauren, who go on a blind date and then somehow get stuck at a resort with children from previous marriages. The two starred together in 1998′s delightful Wedding Singer and 2004′s could-have-been-worse 50 First Dates. Despite Sandler’s recent slate of films, Barrymore does have a solid track record of bringing some heart to his comedies, so we’ll remain cautiously optimistic about the still-untitled project. Frequent Sandler collaborator Frank Coraci (The Wedding Singer) will direct. [Variety]

• Lynne Ramsay’s Jane Got a Gun had some major casting shifts Tuesday. The highly anticipated Western stars Natalie Portman as Jane Hammond, who has no choice but to ask an ex-lover to help defend her farm from the gang out to kill her husband. Originally, Michael Fassbender was set to play Hammond’s ex, with Joel Edgerton as the villain. The latest news is that Fassbender has left the project, Edgerton will now play the ex-lover, and Jude Law (who starred with Portman in Closer) has stepped into the villain role. The X-Men: Days of Future Past shooting schedule is reportedly why Fassbender had to exit the project, but if you were really hoping to seeing him and Portman share the screen, you still have that Terrence Malick project to look forward to…assuming neither of them end up on the cutting room floor. [THR]
