Tom Hardy

Even though we’re distracted by the Cannes Film Festival, the latest news on Sony‘s “Venom” is still knocking us back on our heels a bit, as a creative team comes together for the first film for what the studio hopes will be yet another cinematic universe. Tom Hardy is signed up to lead “Venom,” with Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland,” “Gangster Squad“) directing. Continue reading Tom Hardy To Star In Ruben Fleischer Directed ‘Venom’ at The Playlist.

When it was announced that Christopher Nolan was going to make a World War II film, it marked a break from the fare the director’s best known for: it’s the first time he’s made a non sci-fi or superhero film since “Insomnia” in 2002, and the first time he’s tackled a real-world event. Could he find a way to stand out from other WW2 movies?  Well, judging by what we’ve seen regarding “Dunkirk,” while the film tackles a genre that we’ve seen before, Nolan’s breathtaking visuals make the film feel wholly original.

J.C Chandor has been owed a break in bad luck for a little while. The writer-director got his career off to a sterling start: an Oscar nomination for debut “Margin Call,” a Cannes bow and great reviews for the Robert Redford-starring “All Is Lost,” and more stellar notices for the Oscar Isaac/Jessica Chastain team-up “A Most Violent Year.” Chandor had marked himself as one of the most interesting young filmmakers out there, but the last few years have been made up of false starts: he fell off “Deepwater Horizon,” which he was going to direct, and then just a few weeks ago, Paramount scrapped his new project, “Triple Frontier.” READ MORE: Tom Hardy, Channing Tatum & Paramount All Exit J.C.

This weekend sees the final episode of “Feud,” which stars Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange as Hollywood legends Bette Davis and Joan Crawford respectively, as they scheme and catfight their way through the filming of “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?” It also sees the second weekend of “The Fate of the Furious,” the eighth ‘Fast and the Furious‘ film which stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, who reportedly fell out on set due to Diesel being a “candy ass” (Johnson’s words).

Youch. Pour one out for J.C. Chandor and perhaps intelligent, mid-sized dramas a little bit. At least dramas that are kept at an ailing major studio. The plug has essentially been pulled on director J.C. Chandor’s “Triple Frontier.” Paramount pictures has jumped ship on the South American drug running crime thriller as has its stars Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum. So, R.I.P. to “Triple Frontier” essentially. Continue reading Tom Hardy, Channing Tatum & Paramount All Exit J.C. Chandor’s ‘Triple Frontier’ at The Playlist.

Roaring into theaters this Friday is “The Fate Of The Furious” (read our review!), the eighth (eighth!) in the enduring, and somehow ever-growing, “The Fast And The Furious” franchise. The series has consistently added new blood into the mix as a way of keeping things fresh, with Dwayne Johnson, Kurt Russell and Jason Statham among the big-ticket additions to the series, but the upcoming movie comes with something of a credibility boost, with not one but two Oscar-winning actresses getting in on the fun, in the shape of Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren.

Nearly three years ago, we got very excited when it was announced that “The Hurt Locker” and “Zero Dark Thirty” director Kathryn Bigelow was going to helm “The True American” starring Tom Hardy. However, the project didn’t get in front of cameras, and honestly, we kind of forgot about it. But it’s kicking back to life, with an exciting new name in the director’s seat. Continue reading Pablo Larraín To Direct Former Kathryn Bigelow Project ‘The True American’ Starring Tom Hardy at The Playlist.
