The “10 Years” co-stars are set for another reunion as Deadline reports Oscar Isaac and Max Minghella are attached to star in “Wish You Were Here” director Kieran Darcy-Smith’s next feature, “Memorial Day.”
Though plot details are sparse, Isaac and Minghella will play a pair of brothers who struggle to “redress the fallout” following a family tragedy. The plan is to shoot in Florida next year, but financing must be firmed up first and a third crucial role needs to be cast. Meanwhile, the director is also juggling two other features which he may end up directing before “Memorial Day.”
Isaac and Minghella played high school classmates reunited at their 10 year reunion in Channing Tatum’s “10 Years”, and have emerged two of the fastest rising stars of the large ensemble cast. Isaac played the lead in the Coen Brothers’ upcoming 1960s musical drama “Inside Llewyn Davis” and also recently wrapped up shooting on thriller “Two Faces of January” with Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst and French Victorian drama “Therese” opposite Elizabeth Olsen. He’ll next journey into the “Mojave” for a psychological thriller with Jason Clarke.
Minghella was seen in prominent roles in David Fincher’s “The Social Network” and George Clooney’s “The Ides of March”, and recently wrapped up the lead role in indie “Not Safe for Work” for “Captain America” director Joe Johnston. He recently wrapped comedy “The Internship” opposite Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson and is shooting supernatural thriller “Horns” opposite Daniel Radcliffe.
Juno Temple, Joe Anderson and Kelli Garner are in talks to join Daniel Radcliffe and Max Minghella in supernatural thriller “Horns”, according to Variety.
Under the direction of Alex Aja, Radcliffe will play Ignatius Perrish in this adaptation of the Joe Hill bestseller, a man who, on the anniversary of the murder of his beloved girlfriend, grows horns and supernatural powers, the ability to drive people “to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses.” Minghella plays a district attorney with a hidden dark side, and Temple is lining up the role of the dead girlfriend. No word on who Anderson and Garner will play, but filming begins this fall, so more details should emerge soon.
Temple recently wrapped up shooting on thriller “Magic Magic” and will next be seen opposite Amanda Seyfried in “Lovelace”, and is currently filming Disney’s Sleeping Beauty redo “Maleficent” opposite Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning. Anderson and Garner had always been promising rising stars on film (“Across the Universe” for him, “Lars and the Real Girl” for her), but both took a detour to TV last season, Anderson with “The River” and Garner with “Pan Am”, both ABC shows that will not see a second season.
Max Minghella is in talks to join Daniel Radcliffe in supernatural thriller “Horns”, according to Variety. Radcliffe plays Ignatius Perrish, a man who, on the anniversary of the murder of his beloved girlfriend, grows horns and supernatural powers, the ability to drive people “to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses.” He the, naturally, begins to use his powers to solve the mystery of his girlfriend’s gruesome death. Minghella will play Lee Tourneau, a compassionate public defender who’s got a hidden dark side. Keith Bunin adapted the screenplay back in 2009, before the original Joe Hill novel was even published, and Alex Aja will direct this fall.
Minghella was seen in prominent roles in David Fincher’s “The Social Network” and George Clooney’s “The Ides of March”, and recently wrapped up the lead role in indie “Not Safe for Work” for “Captain America” director Joe Johnston. He’ll next be seen opposite Channing Tatum and a plethora of 20-something rising stars in high school reunion drama “10 Years”, and is currently filming Owen Wilson-Vince Vaughn comedy “The Internship.”
Channing Tatum invited all of his actor friends – basically everyone around the age of 30 you’ve vaguely heard of, including his wife Jenna Dewan, Anthony Mackie, Oscar Isaac, Justin Long, Kate Mara, Max Minghella, Chris Pratt, Rosario Dawson, Ari Graynor and many, many more – to be in “10 Years” (formerly “Ten Year”), the high school reunion ensemble drama he produced and which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. A year later, the Jamie Linden-directed flick is finally seeing a theatrical release and along with it, finally a trailer.
The antics the reunited group get up to seem firmly cliche and surface-skimming, with some having become famous, other laden down with spouses and children, while still others clearly haven’t gotten over their high school crushes. This seems like the kind of movie that won’t offer up anything groundbreaking plot-wise and will instead rely heavily on the charisma and chemistry of its cast, so luckily, it’s got a damn good one. “10 Years” will be released on September 14th and the trailer can be viewed below.
“The Social Network” star Max Minghella has joined the cast of comedy “The Internship”, according to Variety. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson reunite for the workplace comedy that also has newcomcers Josh Brener, Tiya Sircar and Tobit Raphael in supporting roles.
Shawn Levy directs the “Wedding Crashers” co-stars who play old-school salesmen finding themselves quickly left behind in the new world of technology. They try to restart their careers by becoming interns at a high tech company, where they have to compete with early 20-somethings. Minghella will play a ruthless fellow intern who attempts to sabotage them in order to land himself a coveted full time job at the company.
Minghella, son of legendary director Anthony Mingella, began gaining notice after starring in the trio of “The Social Network”, “The Ides of March” and “The Darkest Hour” over the past two years. He’s currently filming thriller “Not Safe for Work” for “Captain America” director Joe Johnston.
Here’s a new and interesting take on the “killer plus innocent bystander” storyline.
Variety reports that Max Minghella is in talks to star in Universal’s low-budget thriller “Not Safe For Work”, playing “a young paralegal trapped in an office with a killer on a secret mission to destroy files and anyone that stands in his path”. Eloise Mumford will play his girlfriend.
To be directed by Joe Johnston, from a script by Simon Boyes and Adam Mason, the film will be Minghella’s first lead role, after starring with George Clooney in “Syriana” and “The Ides of March”, playing Armie Hammer’s business partner in “The Social Network” and then opposite Emile Hirsch in the poorly-received “The Darkest Hour“.
Mumford, most recognisable for TV roles, is set to star alongside Miley Cyrus in “So Undercover”, out March this year, and is currently filming “Drones”, about the pilots of an unnamed air force done working above the skies in Afghanistan.
Channing Tatum makes his debut as a producer in the TIFF-bound high school reunion drama “Ten Year” and has gathered together a large group of young stars that includes himself, wife Jenna Dewan, Kate Mara, Rosario Dawson, Anthony Mackie, Oscar Isaac, Chris Pratt, Ari Graynor and Max Minghella to play ex-classmates, friends and lovers who come face to face after not having seen each other in years.
The first clip has been released via The Playlist and features the guys joshing with each other about being old before Tatum’s character gets wistful as he spots an old love arriving with someone new to the festivities. The Jamie Linden directed film can be seen in Toronto next Monday, September 13th, and Tuesday, September 14th. It has no theatrical release date just yet.
Featuring the largest gathering of young stars since that Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair, “Ten Year” follows a group of 20 somethings at their ten year high school reunion over the course of one night where they “discover that the passing of time changes some things–and others not at all”. Directed by Jamie Lindon, the cast includes Channing Tatum, Rosario Dawson, Anthony Mackie, Aaron Yoo, Ari Graynor, Oscar Issac, Max Minghella, Kate Mara, Brian Geraghty, Justin Long, Ron Livingston… and more.
A bunch of new stills released by Voltage Pictures show us the entire cast in action, with particular focus on some seemingly burgeoning or rekindled romantic relationships. “Ten Year” was recently announced to be having its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 12th. See the new stills below.
If you’re young and hot and partying in some exotic location in a movie, you know you’re in trouble. Do kids ever go on vacation in a foreign country without running into some situation that leaves them bloody and running for their lives? While others have encountered rich guys with torture fantasies and human organ traffickers, the kids in “The Darkest Hour” run into something a little more alien. Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Rachael Taylor and Max Minghella are four friends on a dream vacation in Moscow, but a night of partying goes south when orbs of light descend from the skies and immediately begin sucking up the earth’s electricity and killing every person that gets close enough to touch them.
Though the aliens and special effects look a bit childish and non-threatening from what we’ve seen, being glowing spheres of orange light and all, it’s still a nice change from the usual robot/giant bug model used by nearly every other alien invasion movie. Will the movie live up to its promise of “highlighting the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects from the minds of visionary filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (‘Wanted,’ ‘Night Watch’) and director Chris Gorak”?
“The Darkest Hour” opens in theaters on December 23, 2011.
A striking and refreshingly conceptual poster release today for one of our most highly anticipated films of the year, “The Ides of March”, directed by and starring George Clooney as a Governor turned Obama-esque Presidential candidate. Ryan Gosling, as the idealistic young campaign staffer, is clearly starting to have trouble distinguishing between who he is and the man he works for. Somewhere, Andrew Young is duly noting the symbolism.
Based on the play “Farragut North” by Beau Willimon which is in turn loosely based on the real life 2004 Presidential primary campaign of Democrat Howard Dean, Gosling’s inexperienced but brilliant Stephen Myers is quickly dragged down into the world of dirty politics, when in the days leading up to a crucial Ohio vote, a political scandal threatens the candidate’s shot at the White House. The film also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei, Paul Giamatti, Jeffrey Wright, Max Minghella and Evan Rachel Wood. Clooney and Grant Heslov adapted Willimon’s play for the big screen.
Just announced to have its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, “The Ides of March” already has an official release date of October 7 and is considered a serious Oscar contender.
