Kurt Sutter and FX Axe ‘The Bastard Executioner’

The Bastard Executioner canceled

Kurt Sutter‘s The Bastard Executioner has, itself, hit the chopping block. The medieval drama has officially been canceled, after wrapping up its first (and now only) season earlier this month.

The Bastard Executioner wasn’t earning much in the way of ratings or critical buzz, so the news doesn’t come as a total shocker. What is surprising is the way Sutter announced its cancelation — via a full-page ad in The Hollywood Reporter.

Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw

How do you follow up a performance like the one in Nightcrawler? If you’re Jake Gyllenhaal, you bulk up until you’re nearly unrecognizable as the same guy who played the gaunt and hungry Lou Bloom, and then you get in the ring for director Antoine Fuqua.

In Southpaw, Gyllenhaal plays a boxer who’s on top of the world… until a tragic incident sends his life spinning out of control. After hitting rock bottom, Billy begins the difficult process of scraping himself back together, with the aid of his new mentor Tick (Forest Whitaker). Check out the new Southpaw trailer after the jump.

Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw

Jake Gyllenhaal has had a really excellent run over these past few years, culminating in a career-best performance with Nightcrawler. But it’s not over. He seems poised to continue his winning streak with Southpaw, if the first trailer is any indication.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua and written by Kurt Sutter, Southpaw stars Gyllenhaal as a boxer who’s lost everything — up to and including his daughter, who’s been taken away by Child Services. He begins the painful process of putting his life back together the only way he knows how, by re-entering the ring.

Rachel McAdams plays his beautiful wife, Forest Whitaker his strict coach, and Oona Laurence his cute kid. Check out the Southpaw trailer after the jump. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Director Antoine Fuqua has been developing a boxing drama named Southpaw for some time. Written by Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) it’s the story of a left-handed boxing champion whose life is destroyed and he’s forced to fight his way back. Eminem had long been attached to star as the fighter, but when DreamWorks dropped the film that casting became less likely. MGM then scooped up the rights to Southpaw but Fuqua went off to make Olympus Has Fallen.

With that film in theaters later this month, Fuqua’s attention once again shifts to Southpaw. Eminem will still be involved in some way, but odds are he won’t star. To fill the lead role, Fuqua said he’s recently spoken to three of the most popular leading men around: Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner. Read More »
