• Leonardo DiCaprio is no longer attached to star as the scrappy Florida beach bum Travis McGee in the big-screen adaptation of John D. MacDonald‘s The Deep Blue Good-by (the first in a 21-book series). Though it was being developed for DiCaprio, who earned an Academy nod for his performance in The Wolf of Wall Street, the actor decided to exit due to scheduling conflicts. Still, the project does seem to be moving forward for 20th Century Fox: It was just announced that Wolverine‘s James Mangold is in negotiations to direct, and Mystic River‘s Dennis Lehane penned the most recent draft of the script. DiCaprio’s Appian Way will still produce the project as well. Sound off in the comments if you have any ideas about who should play McGee in Leo’s absence. [Deadline] READ FULL STORY

Chris Pratt came on Jimmy Kimmel Live to introduce the debut trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, his upcoming Marvel Studios film. This is exciting news for some people, and confusing for others.

O Captain, my Captain …
We’d issue a spoiler alert here, but all we know is what the new trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is trying to tell us: Somebody big is going down. Like, 6-feet-under down.
The Super Bowl spot accomplished a handful of things:
– It got fans even more riled up for a film that already has tremendously strong word-of-mouth.
– The uninitiated got a brief primer on who/what The Winter Soldier is.
– Marvel Studios is really trying to make us believe a particular character is headed toward an untimely end.
(We won’t mention who until after the jump. Not that we know. As Springsteen says, “we’re just dancing in the dark …”)
Marvel Studios has dropped 10 seconds of imagery from the upcoming Super Bowl trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
