George Miller’s 2007 “Justice League” film came so close to happening for real that, as these newly uncovered photos show, the cast had already gathered on set and were preparing to begin shooting. Alas, the writer’s strike struck, production was put on hold and ultimately was never able to be put back together. Comic Book Movie have uncovered these brand new behind the scenes images featuring our first look at nearly the entire cast assembled in Australia ahead of when the film was due to start shooting. There’s Armie HammerRead More
Looks like she’s taking her big break and running with it. Elizabeth Debicki was barely out of drama school in Australia when Baz Luhrmann cast her as Jordan Baker opposite Tobey Maguire in his “The Great Gatsby”, and Hollywood has clearly taken notice. Variety reports Debecki has now landed another major role in a major Hollywood production, signing on for Guy Ritchie’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” opposite fellow up and comers Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander. This is the 1960s buddy cop comedy style spy series that WarnerRead More
Rose Byrne is the latest to (maybe) join a big screen musical adaptation, with Variety reporting she is in early talks to take the role of Grace in Will Gluck’s adaptation of the classic orphan tale “Annie.” She is also up for a role in “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” but budget cuts on that film could delay or cancel that deal altogether. Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis plays the little orphan Annie in Sony’s remake, with Jamie Foxx as Benjamin Stacks, the updated version of Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, and Cameron DiazRead More
We first heard about indie thriller “Cut Bank” more than a year ago, when Armie Hammer and Teresa Palmer had been cast alongside Sir Ben Kingsley, John Malkovich and Michael Sheen. Well, it looks like the movie is finally ready to begin shooting, but as is the case often with independent films, there have been some changes. Hammer is no longer mentioned in regards to the film (probably too busy with “The Lone Ranger” and what not these days), but “The Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth is, presumably taking onRead More
Tom Cruise is out of Guy Ritchie’s remake of spy series “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and now THR reports new Superman Henry Cavill is in talks to replace him. Cavill will join Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander, who is still in negotiations for the female lead role. This is the 1960s buddy cop comedy style spy series that Warner Bros has been trying to put together for the big screen for some time, with previous iterations featuring Soderbergh behind the camera, Clooney in front, etc. and which suffered another setbackRead More
Fast rising Swedish actress Alicia Vikander has landed another high profile role, this time the female lead in Guy Ritchie’s reboot of spy comedy “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” starring Tom Cruise and Armie Hammer. This is the 1960s buddy cop comedy style spy series that Warner Bros has been trying to put together for the big screen for some time, with previous iterations featuring Soderbergh behind the camera, Clooney in front, etc. Cruise is taking the Napoleon Solo role, with Hammer in line for his sidekick Illya Kuryakin. The twoRead More
There’s a pattern starting to form in Armie Hammer’s career. After starring opposite Johnny Depp in the high risk, big budget remake of “The Lone Ranger”, Hammer is apparently keen to work on another project with the same Big Movie Star/Iffy Two-Hander Remake combo, and Deadline reports he’s found it in Guy Ritchie’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.”, which will see Hammer paired up with Tom Cruise. This is the 1960s buddy cop comedy style spy series that Warner Bros has been trying to put together for some time. At oneRead More
Pretty much in direct contrast to the “Man of Steel” trailers which are all about hazy, mythic atmosphere, the trailers for “The Lone Ranger”, the newest of which debuted today, go full-out exposition. Gore Verbinski directed Armie Hammer in the titular role and Johnny Depp as Tonto in the reboot of the classic long-running radio turned TV series, and while the first trailer dug deep into the action-oriented train robbery plot, the new trailer is all about the men behind the myth. We fear the movie may turn out toRead More
A list by Emiah Gardner If you’re a Hollywood follower, you know the drill. Small-time star has a bit-part in a big movie and suddenly goes wild. Soon, that star achieves A-list status and is able to choose any part he wants after paying his dues as a walk-on. Well, that’s how it used to be, anyway. With the growing number of movie actors who are TV actors and vice versa, it’s become kosher for TV and movie worlds to collide. In fact, some of the fresh-faced new A-listers areRead More
Another day, another bombshell superhero rumor. The one making the rounds today comes courtesy of Moviehole, who allege that Warner Bros, in the midst of putting together a new “Justice League” movie in answer to Marvel’s “The Avengers”, is looking to a familiar face to play one of the League’s marquee members: Batman. Back in 2007, a then-unknown Armie Hammer had come thisclose to immortalizing his Bruce Wayne on screen; he had tried on the suit and was days away from shooting on George Miller’s “Justice League of America.” Then,Read More
