Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto follow the classic rule of ugly-ing up for an Oscar in Dallas Buyers Club, the true story of Texan electrician and HIV-sufferer Ron Woodroof.
Steve Carell is a funny, goofy man. At least, that's the type of characters he's generally played. From the US version of The Office to Anchorman (with a small detour for Little Miss Sunshine), he's likeable but a bit of a loser. Not so in upcoming film from Capote and Moneyball director Bennett Miller, Foxcatcher. He's a murderer… and he looks the part in the new image that has been released. No more Mr Nice Guy. He looks much older and beefier – and he is wearing a prosthetic nose!
Pulitzer prize-winning author and screenwriter Tracy Letts (Killer Joe, August: Osage County) is tipped to pen the DreamWorks' adaptation of John Steinbeck's classic American novel, The Grapes of Wrath.
Marvel always think outside the box. Right from the beginning, they exemplified unconventional casting by giving Hollywood's black sheep, Robert Downey Junior, the lead role in a superhero movie.
A new still has been revealed from Robert Rodriguez's groundbreaking feminist work, Machete Kills. The image features just some of the women from the Grindhouse sequel looking very booby-ey and angry, have a look!
Thai action-star Tony Jaa will make his English language debut with Fast & Furious 7. There is no word on whether Jaa will be working with Vin Diesel's Dom Toretto or Jason Statham's enigmatic Ian Shaw.
Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow, Topher Grace, Wes Bentley, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine. Most directors would be satisfied with even half of that cast for their next feature, but Christopher Nolan is an ensemble assembling machine and he will not rest until he casts every available working actor for Interstellar.
With that in mind, Nolan has added Matt Damon to the roster for a small but important role. Damon's tenure on the set will be a short two weeks out of the total four months that Nolan will shoot, leaving him free for other upcoming acting projects. One potential project is Damon's directorial debut, The Foreigner.
The original Bourne trilogy is just about one of the best trilogies in recent memory, expanding and deepening with every film, and breaking tradition by having an actual conclusion. Jason Bourne's story ended in a satisfying way, there was never a sense that the story needed to continue.
