Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, Leonard DiCaprio

Killers of the Flower Moon: We heard back in April that director Martin Scorsese might be teaming with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro to make a big-screen version of Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, based on a true story about murder and mayhem in Oklahoma in the 1920s. Now Dante Ferretti, longtime production designer for Scorsese, says the filmmaker hopes to begin shooting next spring. Another associate cautions, though, that the project has not yet been officially confirmed. [Variety]


Joe Paterno: Our first look at Al Pacino as famed Penn State football coach Joe Paterno is anything but glamorous. Paterno won more games than anyone else, only to get caught up at the end of his career in a sexual-abuse scandal surrounding assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Riley Keough also stars; Barry Levinson is directing the movie, which is not yet titled, for HBO. [Variety]



Planetarium Trailer: Natalie Portman speaks French in a new trailer for Planetarium. She and Lily-Rose Depp play sisters, believed to have the power to communicate with ghosts, who cross paths with a visionary French movie producer (Emmanuel Salinger). After debuting at the Venice Film Festival, it's heading for a theatrical release in the U.S. on August 11. [Movieclips]
