2 Guns

2 Guns: Secrets and lies predominate in 2 Guns, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in the story of two thieves who decide to rob a bank controlled by an organized crime gang. But each thief actually has a secret identity that will throw a monkey wrench into their plans. The first official image shows that trust may be an issue; the movie is due out on August 16. [JoBlo]

Cycle of Lies: We just heard that J.J. Abrams’ production company picked up movie rights to the forthcoming book Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong, and now comes word that Bradley Cooper has been talking with Abrams about working together. Cooper first expressed interest in playing the disgraced cyclist during a BBC TV appearance, then sent Abrams an e-mail, which led to their informal discussions. Cooper's prospective involvement could help accelerate the project. [Entertainment Tonight]

Juan Antonio Bayona: Having guided Naomi Watts to an Academy Award-nominated performance in tsunami drama The Impossible, Juan Antonio Bayona has decided to go to space. He will direct an untitled science fiction picture for Warner Bros. based on a script by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Good Shepherd, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). Little is known about the project, other than its genre; Roth last tackled science fiction with 1997’s The Postman, starring Kevin Costner. [Variety]

Snitch Trailer: The prospect of going undercover for the DEA does not frighten Dwayne Johnson, not when his purpose is to clear his innocent son’s name, as the new, action-filled trailer for Snitch makes abundantly clear. Susan Sarandon and Benjamin Britton also star; look for the movie in theaters on February 22. [Yahoo! Movies]
