Hail, Caesar!

The Beautiful and the Damned: We just heard that Jennifer Lawrence may portray Zelda Fitzgerald and now comes word that Scarlett Johansson (Hail, Caesar!, above) also wants to play the socialite in a separate movie titled The Beautiful and the Damned. Hanna Weg wrote the script, inspired in part by recently uncovered information suggesting that Zelda's husband F. Scott Fitzgerald passed off some of her literary ideas as his own. [THR]

 

Unbroken

Alexander McQueen: Jack O'Connell (Unbroken, above) will portray famed fashion designer Alexander McQueen in an upcoming biographical drama. It's based on the book Blood Beneath the Skin by Andrew Wilson and will focus on the designer as he prepares for a career retrospective collection in 2009, shortly before he took his own life. Andrew Haigh (45 Years) will direct the currently untitled project. [The Guardian]

 

Man Down

Man Down Trailer: In an affecting new trailer for Man Down, Shia LaBeouf (featured in the poster above) portrays a soldier suffering from memories of a wartime incident. The post-apocalyptic tale follows the soldier as he searches for his missing wife and son. Gary Oldman, Kate Mara and Jai Courtney also star; the movie will open in theaters on December 2.
