Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring) and Matthew Fox (Lost) have joined the Western film Bone Tomahawk, alongside previously announced cast members Kurt Russell and Richard Jenkins. The film starts on Monday in southern California and is written and directed by novelist and first-time filmmaker S. Craig Zahler.
There’s only one director who can claim to have introduced the world to Nicole Kidman (in 1983’s BMX Bandits) and directed two Leprechaun films (1995’s Leprechaun 3 and 1997’s Leprechaun 4: In Space). That director’s name? Brian Trenchard-Smith.
When EW visited the London shoot of Paddington last year, everyone seemed thrilled that King’s Speech Oscar winner Colin Firth was voicing the film’s titular, marmalade-loving bear. “What we liked about Colin is that he’s got a bearish voice, he’s got a sense of humor, and he presents the very best of British,” explained producer David Heyman (of Gravity and the Harry Potter series). “We wanted that.”
Director Adrián García Bogliano has yet to release his most recently completed film, the werewolf tale Late Phases. But EW can reveal that the prolific filmmaker has commenced principal photography on his next movie in Mexico City. The film is called Scherzo Diabolico and, according to the official release, it “brings Bogliano back from the supernatural realm to a wild black comedy about a bored and frustrated accountant who decides to kidnap a girl who will become his worst nightmare.”
James Franco has found the man to play actor Greg Sestero in his forthcoming adaptation of Sestero‘s 2013 book The Disaster Artist, which details the author’s involvement in the cult film The Room. Not that Franco had to look very far: According to 3 News, Franco’s brother Dave attended a Los Angeles screening of The Room over the weekend and, during a Q&A with the film’s mercurial writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau, asked him, “How do you feel about me playing Greg Sestero in the movie?” Wiseau responded by declaring, “That’s what I say: It’s a good choice.” James Franco seemed to confirm the casting news when he tweeted a photograph of Wiseau with his brother, which you can see above.
When the surprise news broke earlier this week that a fifth Phantasm movie — called Phantasm: Ravager — was not just in the works but had actually been completed, it raised an awful lot of questions. Who directed the latest entry in the beloved cult horror franchise about the ghoulish, mysterious Tall Man and his lethal flying spheres? Which previous actors from the series (if any) would be making an appearance in the film? And when might we see some footage from the first Phantasm movie in 16 years?
But who will be his Tinkerbell?
EW has confirmed that Warner Bros. has cast newcomer Levi Miller as Peter Pan in its upcoming film titled Pan. Written by Jason Fuchs, Pan will be directed by Joe Wright. Miller joins a star-studded cast, including Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as Hook, and Rooney Mara, who’s in talks for the role of Tiger Lily.
Variety first reported the news.
It has been two and a half long years since the release of the last Human Centipede film — or two and a half very short years, depending on how you feel about the infamous movies, in which people are attached together to form the titular monstrosity. Either way, Dutch writer/director and series overlord Tom Six is now preparing to unleash the third film in the franchise, the U.S.-shot Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence). So what can horror fans expect from the final installment of this notoriously grotesque and much-parodied series?
Anyone who had only seen prolific director Joe Swanberg‘s two films of last year — the Olivia Wilde-starring Drinking Buddies and the Jane Adams-topped All the Light in the Sky – might conclude he is a sensitive and PC-friendly chronicler of low-key social interactions. On the other hand, anyone who had only seen the filmmaker’s new movie 24 Exposures could come away with the impression that he is an auteur of a rather different, and kinkier, stripe.
