Terry Gilliam is like the human punching bag of filmmakers. No matter how many hits he takes — which has been far too many throughout his bumpy career — he remains passionate, persistent, and unwilling to let go of dream projects, such as The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Gilliam’s long-suffering fantastical adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes’ novel recently showed new signs of life, when the director acquired financing from overseas, which he couldn’t even get with Ewan McGregor and Robert DuVall attached to the project.
We last heard Jack O’Connell would play the protagonist, Toby, but if — and this is one big if — The Man Who Killed Don Quixote starts principal photography this September it’ll instead star Adam Driver. As for the titular role, Gilliam has enlisted an old collaborator of his, Michael Palin (Monty Python).

Now that Deadpool fans have had the privilege of seeing the Merc with a Mouth brought to the big screen properly, they’re eagerly anticipating what director Tim Miller and writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick have in store for the sequel. It’s still early days on the follow-up to the R-rated surprise hit of the year, but thanks to the credits scene at the end of Deadpool, we already know one thing we can expect from Deadpool 2, and that’s the introduction of Cable.
Ever since Cable was confirmed to appear in the sequel, fans have been trying to figure out who the best man for the job would be. One of the more popular suggestions, with support from Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, has been Jon Hamm while Avatar star Stephen Lang also threw his own name into the ring.

UPDATE: Jennifer Lawrence’s representative has since denied this report, but that’s something that commonly happens before official announcements are made. There’s a chance this could still happen, but as we said, this story was just a rumor to begin with, so continue to take the possibility with a grain of salt.
Last fall we learned that Sandra Bullock had been lined up to star in a reboot of Ocean’s Eleven, the heist comedy starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts and more. The 2001 film from director Steven Soderbergh was a remake of the 1960 film of the same name starring the famed Rat Pack, so it wasn’t exactly sacred ground that would be tread with a reboot. However, this reboot was going to change things up by making the entire team composed of women. Now Sandra Bullock may have a co-star being lined up.
The Hunger Games franchise star Jennifer Lawrence is rumored to be in the running for a role in the female Ocean’s Eleven cast. Even though Jennifer Lawrence is quite the in-demand actress and is probably eyed for tons of lead roles in Hollywood, this one actually makes sense due to who’s behind the camera. Read More »
