Disney has locked down actor Alden Ehrenreich to be their new Han Solo in the spin-off film that will be directed by The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street filmmakers Phil Lord & Chris Miller. In total, over 2,500 actors auditioned for the role including Miles Teller, Dave Franco, Ansel Elgort, Emory Cohen, Jack Reynor, and Taron Egerton. But Ehrenreich came out on top. While his work as an actor speaks for itself, Ehrenreich had someone in his corner who vouched for him, and it just so happens to be iconic filmmaker Steven Spielberg.

Well, now it’s official: Steven Soderbergh is indeed coming out of retirement. Back in February, the “rumor” was that Soderbergh would return to moviemaking with Logan Lucky, but Soderbergh went on to dismiss the story on his always entertaining Twitter feed. However, the project is both real and moving forward, as a few big actors have just signed up for the heist film.
Learn more about the Logan Lucky cast below.

If there are any Orange County fans out there, and there really should be since it’s a sorely underrated comedy, we have some good news. The high school comedy with Colin Hanks in his first starring role also featured Jack Black as his slacker, drugged up brother. Why are we talking about this? Because the forthcoming Jumanji reboot will feature a little Orange County reunion thanks to the fact that Jack Black has joined the cast. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

Unless you’re one of those hardcore Johnny Depp fans, there’s a good chance that you’ve forgotten, or possibly never knew, that the Pirates of the Caribbean starred in a movie called The Libertine. The period drama about 17th century poet John Wilmot (aka the Earl of Rochester) was given a limited release in November of 2005 and a wide release in the spring of 2006. Despite having Depp in the lead role, it barely did any business at the box office, making just under $11 million worldwide. However, Depp is looking to star in another movie with the same title that should outshine the period drama easily.
The Libertine will have Johnny Depp teaming up director Brett Ratner for a film that is unlike anything the Hercules and Rush Hour director has tackled before. Find out more about The Libertine after the jump. Read More »
Colin Farrell is at his best when he’s not trying to do the movie star thing. For every Total Recall, there’s a Seven Psychopaths. For every Dead Man Down, there’s an In Bruges. His career becomes even brighter when you start to appreciate how he refuses to phone in performances in movies where it would have been easy to sleepwalk, like Fright Night and Winter’s Tale, which is the kind of legendarily bad movie that every actor deserves to have on their resume just so they can say they were there.
One of Farrell’s more adventurous performances in recent years is in The Lobster, director Yorgos Lanthimos‘ English-language debut set in a world where single people are transformed into animals if they don’t find a partner. It turns out that Farrell is a perfect vessel for Lanthimos’ pitch black and surreal sense of humor, so it’s only a good thing that the two of them are teaming up for another movie.

We’ve reached the point where Joaquin Phoenix deciding to star in a movie is nothing short of an event. He’s picky these days, but that pickiness tends to work out for just about everyone – he works with some of the best and most interesting filmmakers alive and he consistently turns in phenomenal performances. Everybody wins, especially movie fans.
So that brings us to You Were Never Really Here, a thriller that will team Phoenix with director Lynne Ramsay. This news doesn’t bring me to Joaquin Phoenix/Paul Thomas Anderson levels of interest quite yet, but it’s certainly close.

Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow‘s next movie may not have a title, but it certainly has my attention. I’m already fully prepared to watch anything directed by the woman behind The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty, Near Dark, and yes, Point Break, but when she partners up with Annapurna Pictures, screenwriter Mark Boal, and subject matter that will surely rile up a fair number of people, you know that she’s working on something special. That’s a group of people who don’t phone it in.
Now, another new names has joined this promising collective. Game of Thrones star Hannah Murray has entered talks to play a “key role” in the film, but like the title, the details are currently unknown.
