Casey Affleck / Michael B Jordan / Chiwetel Ejiofor

Three of this year’s hottest stars are teaming up for director John Hillcoat. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael B. Jordan, and Casey Affleck have just boarded Hillcoat’s crime drama Triple Nine, joining the previously announced Christoph Waltz and Cate Blanchett.

That’s a cast to rival Hillcoat’s last star-studded affair, the bootlegging pic Lawless. Which is really saying something, since the roster for that one included Tom Hardy, Jason Clarke, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Dane DeHaan, and Guy Pearce. More about Triple Nine, including Ejiofor, Jordan, and Affleck’s roles, after the jump.

That Awkward Moment

The red-band trailer for That Awkward Moment really lived up to the film’s title, delivering several incredibly awkward moments. But not all of them were SFW, so the new green-band trailer offers a few different, slightly less awkward moments in their place.

Fortunately, this looks like the kind of movie that has more than mere shock value going for it. Rising stars Miles Teller, Zac Efron, and Michael B. Jordan star as three best friends navigating the dating scene together in this Tom Gormican-directed comedy, and seem to have a grand old time of it. Watch the newest promo after the jump.

That Awkward Moment

If you were to cast a dream team of up and coming twenty-something male actors, that list would include the stars of That Awkward Moment. The film, written and directed by Tom Gormican, stars Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller as three young men trying to figure out that “awkward” moment in a relationship where it goes from casual to serious. Imogen Poots and Jessica Lucas are along for the R-rated ride.

It doesn’t hit theaters until January 31, 2014 but a red band trailer has just been released. Check it out below, along with a link to see the rumored Star Wars and Fantastic Four stars do a live Q&A Tuesday evening. Read More »

Need further proof something official is coming from the world of Star Wars? A second actor has confirmed on the record that, yes, they auditioned for the film. First was Saoirse Ronan and next is Michael B. Jordan, the Friday Night Lights, Wire and Fruitvale Station star. Jordan recently confirmed he auditioned for Star Wars Episode VII but doesn’t know much about it. And no lightsaber for him.

He also addressed rumors he’s up for roles in Fantastic Four, Independence Day 2 and that Rocky spinoff Creed with Ryan Coogler. Read all his quotes below. Read More »

Fox Lines Up ‘Fantastic Four’ Actor Shortlists

Fantastic_Four-1

What’s the story with Fox’s new Fantastic Four, to be directed by Josh Trank of Chronicle? Jeremy Slater scripted, and while there have been some small polishes done on that draft here and there, recently we heard that Simon Kinberg (Fox’s current go-to guy with respect to comic book adaptations) was hired to do work on the script.

We don’t know what that rewrite is going to achieve, and until it is done we’re not likely to hear about any real casting decisions. But in the meantime Fox and the film’s producers are still working on lists of choices for the main roles in the movie, and several names have been leaked to the public. Read More »

Michael B Jordan

Will Smith was a star before he appeared in Independence Day, but the 1996 film vaulted him into the stratosphere. The same could happen for Michael B. Jordan, star of Friday Night Lights, The Wire and Fruitvale Station. Jordan (who may also be up for Star Wars Episode VII) is said to be eyed for a “major role” in Roland Emmerich‘s Independence Day sequel, ID Forever Part I. No offer has been made but the actor has reportedly met with the director, the director liked him. As do execs at 20th Century Fox, who might also still be considering him for Fantastic Four.

Michael B Jordan / David Oyelowo

Saoirse Ronan isn’t the only rising star J.J. Abrams has his eye on, at least if this latest rumor is to be believed. According to a new report, Michael B. Jordan and David Oyelowo have also read for Star Wars: Episode VII, though of course nothing is confirmed at this point. Abrams is famously secretive about his upcoming projects, and Star Wars is no exception.

That being said, the filmmaker did recently offer some vague yet encouraging statements about what he has in mind for the new film. Hit the jump to read up on the casting rumors and Abrams’ comments.
