nightmare alley remake

Guillermo del Toro is ready to return to directing after winning an Oscar for The Shape of Water. The filmmaker will helm a remake of the 1940s noir Nightmare Alley, and he’s already attracting some serious star power. Leonardo DiCaprio is in talks to star in del Toro’s movie, which will follow a con-man who teams up with a psychic, and then later a psychiatrist, to scam people. Since del Toro’s involved, I’m assuming some sort of sexy monster will show up at some point. But maybe not.

once upon a time in hollywood character details

Quentin Tarantino has offered some new Once Upon a Time in Hollywood character details – specifically in regards to the roles played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. The new Tarantino flick has a stacked cast, but DiCaprio, Pitt and Margot Robbie are likely to get the most attention. Robbie is playing real-life figure Sharon Tate, and we already know a lot about her. But what of the characters portrayed by DiCaprio and Pitt? According to Tarantino, DiCaprio’s character is a self-pitying has-been, and Pitt plays “one of the deadliest guys alive.”

live-action akira

It looks like the live-action Akira is still a go, and that Taika Waititi is still the most likely candidate to direct. A recent story revealed that the Leonardo DiCaprio-produced film had just scored $18.5 million in tax credits, indicating some form of production is coming down the track, and fast. Hollywood has been trying to bring a live-action adaptation of the 1988 Japanese animated film (and the manga of the same name) for several years now.

Update: A new poster featuring Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate has been released. See it below.

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio look lean, mean, and a little Photoshopped in the very first Once Upon a Time in Hollywood poster, which gives us a new look at Quentin Tarantino‘s highly anticipated film.

devil in the white city tv series

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio were hoping to one day adapt Erik Larson’s fantastic book The Devil in the White City into a feature film, with Scorsese directing, and DiCaprio starring as the notorious H.H. Holmes, thought to be America’s first serial killer. But now, things have changed. Instead of a movie, we’re getting a Devil in the White City Hulu show, and while Scorsese and DiCaprio will still be producing, it’s doubtful their involvement will go much further than that. And that’s a bit of a bummer.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is director Quentin Tarantino‘s ode to 1969, a year of great political upheaval in the U.S. – and the year of the Manson Murders. The Hateful Eight director has earned some flack for making a film involving the shocking murders of Sharon Tate at the hands of Charles Manson’s followers, but in Tarantino’s own words, the film is “not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.”

And the first set of official Once Upon a Time in Hollywood images prove the movie is as steeped in the culture and time of 1969 as possible.

He’s been able to parlay that movie’s record-breaking success into multiple new directing gigs, and now he’s lined up a brand new one: he’ll direct a new adaptation of H.G. Wells‘ classic time travel novella The Time Machine, and Leonardo DiCaprio is on board as a producer.

This project is so hot that competing studios have decided to temporarily put aside their differences and work together to bring it to life. Find out more about the newest The Time Machine movie below.
