killers of the flower moon

For most of the 2010s, Paramount has been in the Martin Scorsese business. The studio distributed Scorsese’s films Shutter Island, Hugo, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Silence before balking at the price tag of The Irishman (Netflix scooped that one up and will release it later this year). But Paramount wants to finish out the decade with another Scorsese movie: the studio will finance and distribute Killers of the Flower Moon, a project which will reunite the director with his frequent leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio.

nightmare alley cast bradley cooper

The del Toro/DiCaprio team-up was apparently too good to be true. Leonardo DiCaprio was previously in talks to join Guillermo del Toro‘s return to directing, Nightmare Alley.

The Ballad of Richard Jewell - Clint Eastwood

The Ballad of Richard Jewell has been in the works for around five years now. The film is based on a Vanity Fair article from 1997 and will tell the true story of a security guard who discovered a pipe bomb at the Olympic games in Atlanta in 1996. At first, he was hailed a hero, but suddenly he became vilified when he became a suspect instead. Now, it finally appears to be gaining some real traction as it locks down Clint Eastwood as director and shifts from its former home at 20th Century Fox over to Warner Bros. Pictures, following the former studio’s acquisition by The Walt Disney Company. Read More »

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.
