Kurt Russell‘s been laying pretty low as of late, making just one movie in the past five years. But as his character says in the trailer for Jonathan Sobol‘s The Art of the Steal, now he’s ready to go back to work.
The caper comedy is one of two that Russell has due out next year, the other being Fast & Furious 7 (well, at least until Universal gets around to changing that release date). Russell stars as a third-rate motorcycle daredevil and sometime art thief who puts together an Ocean’s 11-style team to pull off a heist involving one of the most valuable books in the world.
The first trailer has just been released, and you can check it out after the jump. Matt Dillon, Jay Baruchel, Chris Diamontopolous, Kenneth Welsh, Jason Jones, Katheryn Winnick, and Terence Stamp also star.

It’s been a decade since Roman Coppola directed a feature film (CQ, released in 2001) but he is preparing his second movie as director, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. The movie is at least partially inspired by the public meltdown of Charlie Sheen, and Sheen will play the title character. Aubrey Plaza, Jason Schwartzman and Katheryn Winnick have been cast over the past few weeks, and now Bill Murray, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Patricia Arquette are signing on, too. Read More »

Ken Jeong has built up a respectable career as a supporting actor, most notably on NBC’s Community and the Hangover films, but for his next movie role he’ll be moving a little closer to the spotlight. Jeong is set to star in and produce The Chung Factor, which landed on the 2005 Black List back when it was titled The Ex-Factor. Andy Selsor‘s screenplay revolves around a nice guy who falls in love with a woman, but begins to worry he’ll screw things up and employs an “offbeat” relationship coach (Jeong). Unfortunately, said coach turns out to be the woman’s ex, who wants to win her back and is actively trying to ruin the nice guy’s chances.
It’s great to see the talented and funny Jeong nabbing some bigger parts, but I kind of wish he’d chosen to play the romantic lead. The villain here sounds like he fits a little too comfortably into Jeong’s repertoire of mean weirdos — it would’ve been nice to see him stretch a bit more. [The Wrap]
After the jump, Daenerys Targaryen considers joining Éomer and Prince Caspian as they steal cars in France, while Katheryn Winnick nabs a starring role opposite America’s Trainwreck Charlie Sheen.
