Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters) is preparing to direct a crime thriller called KIN, and Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde (one of the few standout elements in Tron Legacy) and Charlie Hunnam are all in talks to appear. The film, written by Zach Dean, is about “two desperate sibling fugitives (Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde) on the run who subsequently collide with the holiday homecoming of a troubled ex-boxer (Hunnam).” The film is scheduled to shoot in March.

Liv Tyler and Patrick Wilson will feature in The Ledge, a “suspense thriller” (as opposed to non-suspenseful thrillers) that will mark the feature debut of writer/director Matthew Chapman.
Terrence Howard and Charlie Hunnam co-star in the film about “a man (Hunnam) standing on a high-rise ledge who insists he must jump by noon as the policeman below (Howard) tries to manage the situation.” OK, sounds like Hunnam and Howard are leading the cast, so who will Wilson and Tyler play? Good question. Producer Michael Mailer has a great quote about the production, at least: “As more and more films succumb to the visual wizardry of 3D, ‘The Ledge’ explores the fourth dimension: the interior life of tortured souls hovering over the precipice of emotional nullity. This film is the reason why I became an independent filmmaker and why I continue to suffer in the trenches of independent filmmaking.” Take that, 3D! [THR]

This is almost refreshing. Just a few days ago we told you that Summit was working on an “action-heavy Dracula remake, entitled Vlad, with a script by actor Charlie Hunnam” and direction by music video director Anthony Mandler. Turns out that the project isn’t quite what anyone expected. Yes, it’s based on the life of Vlad the Impaler, and yes, it’s intended to be a big, sweeping film with a lot of action. (‘In the style of 300‘ keeps being used as a reference.)
But the film is about Vlad the man, rather than an adaptation of Dracula, and won’t touch on vampirism at all. Read More »
Summit just can’t quit those vampires. The studio is apparently working on their own action-heavy Dracula remake, entitled Vlad, with a script by actor Charlie Hunnam. After loving the guy on Undeclared, Children of Men, and Sons of Anarchy, a vampire script from Hunnam comes as a bit of a surprise. Music video director Anthony Mandler is in negotiations to direct, and Brad Pitt is producing via Plan B along with Dede Gardner. Not surprisingly, the film will apparently center on Dracula as the young prince Vlad.

Nikkie Finke has been on a roll regarding news from the world of Marvel, which makes me think she has a good inside source. Today she posted a bunch of casting tidbits for Kenneth Branagh‘s Thor. First up is Thor himself. Finke gives a list of actors who have tested for the role, including Josh Hartnett, Charlie Hunnam (Sons Of Anarchy), Tom Hiddleston (The Gathering Storm), Liam Hemsworth (The Expendables), Joel Kinnaman and the previously rumored Alexandar Skarsgard.
But the big shocker is that Natalie Portman will be playing the lead female role. Possibilities after the jump.
