Way back in 2011, Armie Hammer became attached to a sci-fi thriller called “2:22,” but we’ve heard nary a peep on it since – until today, when it was announced that Hammer is now out of the project, and Benjamin Walker is now in. Additionally, the film’s female lead has been cast, and will be played by Teresa Palmer. The plot description now purports to be about “a man whose life is permanently derailed when an ominous pattern of events repeats itself every day, ending at precisely 2:22 pm. HeRead More

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
