andrew Garfield mel Gibson

With Spider-Man stuck in a bit of a void, Andrew Garfield is filling his time wisely. He’ll soon shoot Silence with Martin Scorsese, and now he might team up with another Oscar-winning director: Mel Gibson. Both Gibson and Garfield are circling a World War II project called Hacksaw Ridge. It’s the true story of Desmond T Doss, a U.S. military doctor (played by Garfield, if it all works out) who refuses to kill patients badly injured in battle. As a result, Doss was the first “Conscientious Objector” to win the Congressional Medal of Honor. Gibson would direct the film. Read more about the potential Andrew Garfield Mel Gibson team up below.

Steve McQueen Sets Paul Robeson Biopic as Next Feature

shame-steve-mcqueen

Hunger and Shame got director Steve McQueen some pretty great buzz, but it wasn’t until 12 Years a Slave that he really broke through outside the indie/arthouse crowd. The slavery drama took home Best Picture at the 86th Oscars and marked McQueen as a big deal. Now he’s using the clout he gained from that film to get his next one moving.

McQueen is set to follow up 12 Years a Slave with a biopic of performer and activist Paul Robeson. Harry Belafonte is already set to star. Hit the jump for more details on the Steve McQueen Paul Robeson project.

Jean Grey Cyclops

Bryan Singer once again has the unenviable task of casting two of Marvel’s most iconic X-Men. Back in 2000, the director brought in Famke Janssen and James Marsden to play Jean Grey and Cyclops, rolls that extended through and including this year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. But now that the series is continuing on with the X-Men: First Class versions of the characters in X-Men Apocalypse, he has to cast those two crucial roles again.

One report says three actors and three actresses are on Singer’s short list for each role. Among them? Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld. Read more about the X-Men Apocalypse Cyclops and Jean Grey casting below. Read More »

Who is daniel bruhl playing in captain america

Marvel announced last week that Inglourious Basterds star Daniel Brühl would be joining Captain America: Civil War. That in itself is big news, because Brühl is a great actor and we’re always happy to see him. But what really got fans buzzing was Marvel’s decision not to offer any hints whatsoever abut his role. That opened the door to a whole lot of guesses, some more out there than others, and we got to wondering whether Marvel might be keeping his character a secret for a reason.

Officially, the studio has said only that Brühl would appear in Captain America: Civil War and that they’re excited about his “ability to deliver intense, nuanced performances.” However, the trades soon reported that Brühl would be playing a villain (though maybe not the main villain), and that he could return in Doctor Strange as the big bad for that film. So who is Daniel Bruhl playing in Captain America: Civil War, really? Hit the jump for our best guesses.
