Finding the Mother Tree

If you’re a casting director on the hunt for an actress to play a specialist who needs to crack a mysterious form of communication from an unexpected species, Amy Adams is your gal.

After playing that character type in Denis Villeneuve’s excellent 2016 film Arrival (and being unfortunately overlooked by the Academy), Adams is preparing to suit up for a similar type of code cracking role in a new film called Finding the Mother Tree. Except this time, it’ll be with trees instead of aliens. Oh, and this one is based on a true story. Get the details below. Read More »

the guilty remake cast

Antoine Fuqua is directing a remake of the Danish thriller The Guilty for Netflix with Jake Gyllenhaal set to star. So far, so good. But now a surprisingly large cast has been added around Gyllenhaal, including Peter Sarsgaard, Paul Dano, Ethan Hawke, Riley Keough, and more. And that’s where things grow slightly confusing. To be clear: these are all good actors, but their addition here suggests that The Guilty remake is going to be very different than the original. Because the original film is almost entirely a one-man show.

Ambulance Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal wants in on some Bayhem so he’s in talks to star in Ambulance, the latest from Michael Bay. The script for the film, penned by Chris Fedak, has actually been kicking around for a while. At one point, Big Bad Wolves directors Navot Papushado & Aharon Keshales were attached to helm. But now, Bay has ahold of it.

Godfather Making Of Movie

Barry Levinson is making a movie about the making of The Godfather, and it’s already shaping up to have quite a cast. Oscar Isaac is set to play Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola, while Jake Gyllenhaal will play legendary producer Rober Evans. While The Godfather is considered today to be one of the greatest movies of all time, the making of the film was not without roadblocks. There was significant push-back against Coppola directing the film, as there was against several of Coppola’s casting choices. But of course, as we know now, it all worked out in the end.
