It was almost exactly a year ago that we saw the sales trailer for The Whistleblower, a thriller in which Rachel Weisz plays a Nebraska cop working as a peacekeeper in postwar Bosnia who uncovers a sex scandal. The movie played Toronto last September, and hit a few other fests afterward, but we haven’t heard much about the picture since then. Samuel Goldwyn Films is distributing, and the company has now released a full US trailer. It’s after the break. Read More »
Clint Eastwood is currently shooting his J. Edgar Hoover biography called J. Edgar, with Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role and Armie Hammer in the key secondary role of Hoover colleague and reported lover Clyde Tolson. Even as the film shoots it is adding cast members to fill out ancillary roles. The latest addition is Stephen Root, a character actor that is always a pleasure to see on screen. (You can see him right now doing great work in Cedar Rapids.)
Mr. Root will play Arthur Koehler, “an introverted man and wood specialist who helps J. Edgar Hoover piece together the mystery of the Lindbergh kidnapping case through an examination of the ladder used by the abductor.” [Variety]
After the break, Monica Bellucci makes up for Manual of Love 3 and Fernando Meirelles’ 360 gets another actor. Read More »
When do a lot of people start to care about the third film in an Italian romance series? When one of the stories within features Robert De Niro as a divorced American professor romancing Monica Bellucci during a stay in Rome. We talked about Manual of Love 3 when the two actors were cast in the film, and now there’s a trailer featuring their characters. See it after the break. Read More »
Why should Robert De Niro be this lucky? He’s signed on to be in Manual of Love 3, the third chapter in an Italian romantic drama/comedy series. That’s odd enough, but he’ll be playing an American professor who is the love interest of Monica Bellucci. If there’s a stranger pairing I’m not sure I can think of it right now. I doubt De Niro is complaining. [Variety]
After the break, Barry Levinson’s son hires Thomas Haden Church and Martin Landau, and Charisma Carpenter books an indie thriller. Read More »

Another promo poster I ran across at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival is a teaser one-sheet for Larysa Kondracki‘s The Whistleblower, which stars Rachel Weisz as Kathryn Bolkovac, “a Nebraska cop who served as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and outed the U.N. for covering up a sex scandal.” The drama co-stars Vanessa Redgrave, Monica Bellucci and David Strathairn, and is planning for a tentative late 2010 release. Check out the full poster and info sheet, after the jump.
