Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance and star Ryan Gosling reunited for The Place Beyond the Pines, and the first trailer for the film is below. Here Gosling plays a hasher motorcycle daredevil who turns to crime to support the son he finds he has after the boy’s birth.
But a couple of cops (Bradley Cooper and Ray Liotta) track Gosling down after his crime, only to get involved in something far more complicated than a simple cops and robbers situation. Pines appears to be similar to Drive in the way it uses the basic language of a genre picture to approach a drama from an atypical angle. It’s not going to be a movie for everybody — if you want a straight crime thriller, this almost certainly isn’t it — but the trailer suggests that those who want a movie that plays around with the mixture of drama and genre will have a lot to enjoy.

It wasn’t so long ago that Bradley Cooper was mostly thought of as the guy from Wedding Crashers and The Hangover, but these days his dance card is filled with projects by David O. Russell, Susanne Bier, Cameron Crowe, and the like. One he’s got coming up next year is The Place Beyond the Pines, from Blue Valentine helmer Derek Cianfrance, and now the pair are already gearing up to reunite on a new project called Chef.
Well — new to them. In fact, Chef has been simmering (sorry! had to) since about 2008, when David Fincher was attached to direct with Keanu Reeves set to star. More details after the jump.

When Bradley Cooper first blipped on the pop culture radar as the loveable friend on J.J. Abrams’ Alias, no one could guess the heights to which he’d soar. He’s gone from bit player to leading man, blockbuster star and now Oscar-hopeful. And once you’ve covered all those bases, that’s when the coolest of cool filmmakers start to take notice. That’s happened to Cooper, as he’s in talks to star in the upcoming untitled Cameron Crowe film (which might be called Deep Tiki) opposite Emma Stone. Read more after the jump. Read More »

Even as the male lead of Warner Bros.’ A Star is Born remake has become a revolving door of high-profile celebs, female lead Beyoncé Knowles has remained steadfast in her commitment to the role. In fact, Knowles’ involvement predates director Clint Eastwood‘s. Eastwood didn’t board until early 2011, by which point the pop star had been attached for at least a year.
Apparently, however, even she’s grown tired of waiting for it to get off the ground. Knowles has just left the long-gestating musical, leaving it with no stars and no start date. Read on after the jump.

David O. Russell and The Fighter were good to Christian Bale — they gave the actor a chance to really dig deep into a role rich with dramatic potential, and he took home an Oscar for it. Now Bale is going back to work for Russell, in the film once called American Bullshit, which is working without a title for now.
Bale joins Bradley Cooper, fellow Fighter vet Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner in the film, which is based on a true story of a con man recruited to take down other con men. Read More »
