Hail, Caesar!

Dark Web: Joel and Ethan Coen (above) will write a new draft of the screenplay for Dark Web. The thriller is based on a magazine article by Joshuah Bearman about a real-life entrepreneur who created an illegal-drug marketplace online and "allegedly became a murderous kingpin." Dennis Lehane wrote the first draft of the script. Though primarily known for writing and directing their own movies, the Coen brothers have recently written scripts for Angelina Jolie's Unbroken and Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies. [THR]

 

Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures: The upcoming drama Hidden Figures, previously set for theatrical release on January 13, 2017, will instead receive a limited release on December 25, ahead of its wide opening on January 6. That will make the movie eligible for Academy Award consideration. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae star as unheralded yet brilliant women who worked at NASA on key space programs during the 1960s. [THR]

 

Rosemarie DeWitt

Song of Back and Neck: Rosemarie DeWitt will star in Song of Back and Neck, a dark comedy about a repressed man who seeks to find a cure for his chronic back pain. Paul Lieberstein wrote the original script and will both star in and direct the movie. He's a veteran actor, writer and producer who is probably best known for TV's The Office.  [Variety]

Indianapolis: Men of Courage as captain of the ship that delivered atomic weapons on a secret mission during World War II and then was sunk by Japanese forces, leaving the survivors afloat in ocean waters, surrounded by ravenous sharks.
