Linden (Mireille Enos) and Holder (Joel Kinnaman) are drawn closer than ever after the events of season 3, and as we see in the first trailer for “The Killing’s” fourth and final season, they are still reeling from what they did and trying to keep a big secret between them. But there’s no rest for the Seattle detectives, as they are soon handed a new case in which a teenage boy apparently killed his entire family before turning the gun on himself – only he survived the self-inflicted shot toRead More
Robocop
Joel Kinnaman is surely hoping the new “Robocop” will be his breakout role and with this latest trailer we think he may just be in luck. Following an earlier trailer, this remake of the 1987 classic was directed by Jose Padilha from a script by Josh Zetumer. Set in a world where every major city is policed by robots, the US remains one of the last country’s whose residents do not want robots patolling their streets. When Kinnaman’s police officer is suspiciously murdered, he is turned into Robocop – aRead More

Despite “The Fifth Estate” fizzling at the box office, Benedict Cumberbatch is still in demand as Deadline reports he is the frontrunner to take the lead in Doug Liman’s adventure pic “Everest” after Tom Hardy has had to drop out. But he has some competition still, a lot of it, with just about every late 20s-early 30s actor also in the mix, including Joel Kinnaman, James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, Matthew Goode, and Jim Sturgess. Adapted from Jeffrey Archer’s book “Paths Of Glory” by OscarRead More

The killer cast of Daniel Espinosa’s adaptation of spy novel “Child 44″ just got even more awesome with the increasingly ubiquitous Jason Clarke now jumping on board, according to THR. Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Paddy Considine and Phillip Seymour Hoffman are already set to star. Hardy and Rapace play husband and wife in “Child 44″, with Hardy as a Soviet officer who becomes the target of suspicion from his own government and Rapace as his wife, who pretends to be loyal and doting but hiding secretsRead More
Fast rising star Joel Kinnaman is in talks to star alongside recent break out stars Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace in “Child 44“, a soviet-era drama adaptation. The film, set in the 1950s, is to be directed by Daniel Espinosa – meaning it will be the third collaboration between Kinnaman and Espinosa, who worked together on “Snabba Cash” and most recently the “Robocop” reboot. In the film, adapted for the screen by Richard Price, Hardy is a Soviet agent, who whilst investigating a series of murders soon becomes a targetRead More
Joel Kinnaman is in final negotiations to play Liam Neeson’s son in action thriller “Run All Night”, according to a THR. Jaume Collet-Serra will direct the film, which revolves around Neeson’s aging hitman as he takes on his former boss to protect his family. Kinnaman will play Neeson’s estranged son, who witnesses a murder and becomes the target of a hit himself. Filming is scheduled to begin this fall. Kinnaman already had a great career back in his native Sweden, but it was American TV series “The Killing” that putRead More
In a surprise move, and likely a reflection of this weak year for breakout film stars, THR’s annual Next Gen list for 2012 is dominated by television actors. Out of ten, only four are film actors: Elle Fanning, Rebel Wilson, Joel Kinnaman and Suraj Sharma. The other six, though some may have dabbled on the big screen, are all new stars of new series on the small screen. Dakota Johnson impressed us with a brief turn in David Fincher’s “The Social Network”, but THR is recognizing her now for herRead More
Back in July, we got word that Dreamworks and director Bill Condon were meeting with the ever in demand Jeremy Renner about taking on the role of Julian Assange in a planned Wikileaks film, but could that all be changing now? Deadline reports the studio is now seriously looking at British actor Benedict Cumberbatch for the role of Assange, and Swedish rising star Joel Kinnaman for the role of Assange’s former right hand man, Daniel Domscheit-Berg. But, they caution, the studio would confirm nothing and it seems Renner really isn’tRead More
