Noomi Rapace to Play Amy Winehouse in New Biopic

Noomi Rapace - Amy Winehouse

After a documentary about the singer’s life hit theaters earlier this year, the late Amy Winehouse is now in line to get the biopic treatment as well, and an impressive actress may be lined up to play her.

Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) is currently in talks to play the British soul singer, who tragically died four years ago due to a lethal amount of alcohol intoxication after battling with addiction. However, it may not be the only Winehouse project in the works. Read More »

modern ocean cast

It took director Shane Carruth nine years to make a follow-up to 2004’s time travel instant-classic Primer. Thankfully, 2013’s Upstream Color was a remarkable sophomore effort, a science fiction tinged drama that was as emotionally moving as his debut feature was mind-bending. Even more thankfully, we won’t have to wait nearly a decade for this third movie. His new movie is on the way and its already assembled a jaw-dropping ensemble.

We already knew that The Modern Ocean would be Carruth’s first step into big-budget filmmaking, but no one saw this cast coming. The man who once worked miracles with a couple thousand bucks is now commanding a cast that includes Anne Hathaway, Keanu Reeves, Daniel RadcliffeChloe Grace Moretz, Tom Holland, Asa Butterfield and Jeff Goldblum. More details on the Modern Ocean cast can be found after the jump.

mute cast

Director Duncan Jones has been talking about this science fiction film noir dream project Mute for years. Like so many passion projects, it always seemed to be just out of reach for the Moon and Source Code filmmaker, who has spent the past few years bringing Warcraft to life. With his big-budget fantasy epic nearing the homestretch, Jones can actually make Mute happen instead of just wistfully talking about it to anyone who will listen. After all, we’ve been using the same piece of concept art for every story about this movie for over five years. We need something new!

And now, we’re getting something new. Alexander Skarsgard and Paul Rudd have joined the cast, which is the first proper, actual evidence we’ve had in years that this movie could become a reality. More importantly, Jones has all but confirmed what he’s long teased: Mute will take place in the same universe as Moon.

Female Ocean's Eleven Cast

Just last week, we learned that there was a female Ocean’s Eleven in development with Sandra Bullock taking the lead role akin to George Clooney‘s Danny Ocean. There are even rumblings that the story might actually take place in the same universe as the original heist trilogy from Steven Soderbergh, with Clooney potentially making a cameo as Ocean. But the big question is, who will surround Bullock as the rest of the heist crew?

We decided to put together a prospective cast who would be perfect to team up with Sandra Bullock for some kind of heist. Obviously the characters won’t be exactly the same as they are in Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven, but since we’re just having fun assembling a dream cast, we’ve stuck to the characters pretty closely to put this list together for the female Ocean’s Eleven cast.
