Movie News: New 'Fast & Furious 7' Images; 'Whiplash' Director Lands on Neil Armstrong Biopic

Sep 24, 2014

Fast & Furious 7Vin Diesel shared two new images from the next Fast & Furious installment, and the first one is a bittersweet look at the actor with his late friend and original franchise costar Paul Walker. They sure look snazzy, too. The other new pic is Diesel alone as Toretto, apparently about to get into a fight.

The Rosie Project: What might otherwise just sound like the next disposable rom-com has our attention by tapping just the right players. The Rosie Project is a hit novel about a scientist who seeks a mate through a scientific process of his own devise, and of course he winds up falling for someone who fails his qualifications entirely. The adaptation, at Sony, will be written by (500) Days of Summer duo Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber and will likely be helmed by Midas-touch directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller of 22 Jump Street and Lego Movie fame. We don't need science to deduce this one's going to be a winner. [Deadline]


Neil Armstrong biopic: Once at Warner Bros. with Clint Eastwood set to direct, a movie based on the authorized Neil Armstrong biography First Man is now moving forward at Universal with Whiplash director Damien Chazelle likely at the helm. Six years ago, the studio had Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) writing, but they've apparently replaced her with The Fifth Estate's Josh Singer.    [The Hollywood Reporter]


Fishing Without Nets trailer: Following the success of Captain Phillips, now see a Somali pirate story from the Somali pirates' side starring real East Africans of Somali descent. Produced by Vice, Cutter Hodierne's feature adaptation of his own short won the directing award at Sundance this year -- and if this work of realism starts reminding you of something by De Sica, that's probably intentional as Hodierne also previously directed a short based on and called The Bicycle Thief.
