Two of the biggest rising stars in Hollywood might team up to tell a still-unfolding story filled with secrets, leaks and infamy. DreamWorks has been developing a biopic of Julian Assange, the controversial face behind WikiLeaks, with Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) likely to direct. Over the summer rumors circulated that Jeremy Renner was in talks for the lead but Deadline now reports Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Trek Into Darkness) could possibly play Assange with Joel Kinnaman (The Killing, RoboCop) as his right hand man, Daniel Domscheit-Berg. The script, based on two books on Assange, was written by Josh Singer.

First Look at a Suit From the New ‘RoboCop’

I’m reluctant to say that this is absolutely 100% the design for the new RoboCop, despite the fact that these pictures were snapped on the Toronto set of Jose Padilha‘s new version of the story. I say that because I’m not certain that we’re seeing Joel Kinnaman in the suit there, though it could be a stuntman in a version of the suit that Kinnaman wears.

Still, these are pics of a suit from the set of the new RoboCop, and so, combined with what we’ve seen of the new ED209, they give us some idea of what this movie is going to look like. Check out full-size shots below. Read More »

As one Paul Verhoeven remake plops into theaters, another one is gearing up to start shooting. Fortunately for us, Jose Padilha‘s RoboCop already looks much more promising than Len Wiseman’s Total Recall ever did.

For one thing, Padilha is assembling a top-notch cast. Joel Kinnaman has been set to play the lead for some time now, but in the last few months Padilha’s been busy locking down some other interesting talents like Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, Samuel L. Jackson, and Hugh Laurie. The newest member of that roster is now Jennifer Ehle, a two-time Tony winner last seen in Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion and the CBS drama A Gifted Man. More details after the jump.

José Padilha has rounded up an impressive array of talent for his new Robocop remake, and the latest additions are no exception. A new report has surfaced today indicating that Jackie Earle Haley is now signed on, while Jay Baruchel is said to be circling a key role. The two join a cast that already includes Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Laurie, Abbie Cornish, and of course, Joel Kinnaman as Robocop himself. More details after the jump.

It’s been several months since we saw the trailer for Snabba Cash II, but now comes the trailer for the first Snabba Cash. No, we’re not getting our numbers mixed up. While the first film was a huge smash in Sweden back in 2010, it’s only now getting around to a proper U.S. release, under the title Easy Money.

The Weinstein Co. have been waiting for the right moment to release it since they picked up the picture two years ago, and now that they’re finally ready to go, they’re giving it their best push. The new trailer comes with a “Martin Scorsese Presents” stamp of approval, name-checks Dragon Tattoo author Stieg Larsson, downplays the subtitles, and helpfully points out director Daniel Espinosa and star Joel Kinnaman‘s involvement in familiar American titles Safe House and The Killing, respectively. Watch it after the jump.

After eight seasons of playing the stubborn, selfish, and mean-spirited — but ultimately helpful — Dr. Gregory House on TV, Hugh Laurie is about to go full-on evil for the big screen. The Brit actor has just signed on for José Padilha‘s upcoming remake for MGM of Paul Verhoeven‘s 1987 sci-fi classic Robocop, in the role of the villainous Omni Corp CEO.

Abbie Cornish in Talks for ‘Robocop’

Whatever doubts you may still have about MGM’s Robocop remake, at least director José Padilha is recruiting a strong cast to help him out. The Killing star Joel Kinnaman was confirmed as the title character earlier this year, and since then Padilha’s been filling out the supporting roles with stars like Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson — and now Abbie Cornish, who has been offered the female lead. More details after the jump.

In this current remake-happy cinematic climate, that Gone With the Wind is being eyed for a do-over isn’t much of a shocker — but the name behind it certainly is. In an interview with NextMovie, former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff expressed his desire to star in a remake of the classic romance from 1939, and even offered up one idea about the casting.

Hasselhoff told the site that his manager had been unhappy with him for signing on to the ultra-campy Piranha 3DD. “He wants me to do a Knight Rider film or Nick Fury, which I was supposed to do, or a remake of Gone With the Wind,” Hasselhoff said. Later in the conversation, he brought up the potential Gone With the Wind project again. “Hopefully the Gone With the Wind will come, hopefully something great will happen.”

Naturally, the conversation then turned to who could tackle the iconic Scarlett O’Hara role opposite Hasselhoff’s Rhett Butler. Hasselhoff suggested Rachel Weisz, though he initially referred to her as “Rachel Rice.” “I think she’s hot,” he said.

After the jump, WWE’s Leprechaun remake hires a writer and Robocop star Joel Kinnaman offers up new details.
