Jan 19, 2017

Manchester By the Sea

Janis Joplin: Michelle Williams (Manchester By the Sea, above) is once again set to star in a movie about legendary singer Janis Joplin. Filmmaker Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene), who was first attached to the project in July 2012, will direct. The project is currently seeking distribution, with shooting expected to start in the spring. [Deadline]

 

Hellboy II: The Golden Army

Hellboy III: This past summer, Guillermo del Toro said that a third installment of Hellboy "is a wish that will never be fulfilled [because] the first two movies made really good profits on a market that doesn’t exist anymore." Now, however, del Toro has asked fans to tell him their feelings on a prospective Hellboy III -- by voting either "yes" or "hell, yes" -- and then promised that if 100,000 votes were received with 24 hours, he would have a "serious sit down" with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and actor Ron Perlman.

Identity Thief

Boston College Fix: Seth Gordon (Identity Thief, above) will direct Boston College Fix. It's inspired by a real-life scandal in the late 1970s, in which gangsters orchestrated a scheme to shave points in college basketball games. Robert Carlock (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot) will write the screenplay. [Deadline]

 

Collide

Collide Trailer: Nicholas Hoult stars as a backpacker in the thriller Collide. As a new trailer suggests, he takes a job as a driver for a big heist to pay for emergency medical care needed by his girlfriend (Felicity Jones), but things do not go as planned. Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley also star; the movie will open on February 24. [Movieclips]
