Michael Mann, the talented filmmaker behind ‘Heat‘ and ‘Collateral’ is getting closer to starting production on his passion project, Ferrari.
It’s being reported this week that Adam Driver, Penelope Cruz and Shailene Woodley have signed on to star in the movie. Driver will be replacing Hugh Jackman, who was originally set to star.
The movie, which Mann has been working on for two decades, is set during the summer of 1957. Ex-racecar driver, Ferrari, is in crisis. Bankruptcy stalks the company he and his wife, Laura, built from nothing ten years earlier. Their tempestuous marriage struggles with the mourning for one son and the acknowledgement of another. He decides to counter his losses by rolling the dice on one race – 1,000 miles across Italy, the iconic Mille Miglia.
Mann has been trying to get this movie made for years, and it’s been close a few times before, but never this close.
Casting appears to be locked right now, which is great news. Mann will direct from a script by Troy Kennedy Martin.
Mann released the following statement:
Being able to have these wonderfully talented artists, actors Adam Driver, Penélope Cruz and Shailene Woodley, bring to life these unique characters on location in Modena and the Emilia-Romagna is a vision fulfilled.
Production is scheduled to begin in May in Italy. We will keep you posted.
The first trailer for ‘House of Gucci’ has been released, featuring Adam Driver and Lady Gaga as Mr. and Mrs. Gucci.
House of Gucci is inspired by the unbelievably shocking true story of the family empire behind the Italian fashion house of Gucci.
Gaga plays socialite Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio’s ex-wife who was tried and convicted of orchestrating his murder after he left her for a younger woman. She served 18 years in prison, where she gained the nickname Black Widow, before being released in 2016.
The film was directed by Ridley Scott, who is perhaps best known for his sci-fi work. He’s the director behind Alien, Blade Runner and The Martian.
House of Gucci was written by Roberto Bentivegna, based on Sara Gay Forden’s book ‘The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed.’ The star-studded cast also includes Al Pacino, Jared Leto and Jeremy Irons.
It’s set to hit theaters November 24, and you can bet they’re hoping it’ll be an awards contender. It’s difficult to see how it wouldn’t be, with Scott directing and a cast that includes Al Pacino, Driver, Gaga and Irons.
If you haven’t heard, Ridley Scott is directing a film titled ‘House of Gucci’ which depicts the true story of the downfall of the Gucci family dynasty.
Adam Driver is playing Maurizio Gucci in the movie, and Lady Gaga is playing his ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani. Legend has it, after Maurizio left her for a younger woman, Patrizia hired a hitman to kill Maurizio.
She was later sentenced to 29 years in prison, and was released in 2016 after only serving 18 years. She was released on good behavior, according to the reports.
So yeah, this movie should be pretty entertaining. Gaga shared a photo of her and Driver all dressed up with snow and mountains behind them.
And it’s safe to say, they look the part.
They don’t even need a trailer. Just give me that photo and I’ll buy a ticket to watch the film.
The movie is currently being filmed in Europe. It’s expected to hit theaters in November.
When we see Adam Driver’s name in a headline, we pay attention. The dude is probably the most talented actor in the game right now. He steals every single scene he’s in, and he’s been in a lot of scenes lately.
Last year, he starred inMarriage Story and The Report. Both films received praise from the critics and he was actually nominated for an Oscar for his performance in Marriage Story.
But beyond reprising his portrayal of Kylo Ren in the final installment in the latest Star Wars saga, what has Driver been up to?
After watching ‘Parasite‘ last weekend, I don’t see how any film is going to top it this year, but if one film has a shot, it might be Marriage Story.
Noah Baumbach’s latest film stars Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson as a couple navigating a divorce.
Driver’s Charlie is a successful New York City theater director, while Johansson’s Nicole is an actress with dreams of moving to her hometown of Los Angeles for a chance to escalate her career. The two have a young son, played by Azhy Robertson.
The movie has premiered at multiple festivals and has been getting rave reviews from critics. It has a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and most critics believe Driver and Johansson will receive Oscar nominations for their performances.
They also say it’s Noah’s best film, which is saying a lot because he’s wrote and/or directed some pretty great films, including The Meyerowitz Stories, Frances Ha, and Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Marriage Story will hit select theaters November 6, before hitting the Netflix platform on December 6.
Did you watch the 2016 indie drama Paterson with Adam Driver? The film was a weird mess, but it was a lovely one. It received outstanding reviews from critics and showed off Driver’s incredible acting skills. The director of the film, Jim Jarmusch, is returning with another indie movie in 2019.
And just like Paterson, this film stars Adam Driver. But that’s where the similarities end, ’cause this movie, The Dead Don’t Die, is about local cops trying to fight off a zombie invasion.
In addition to Driver, this movie also stars Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and Selena Gomez.
Driver and Murray star as local cops who must spring into action when a zombie outbreak begins affecting the town’s citizens. Jarmusch shot the movie in upstate New York, and Murray has gone on record saying the director has written a zombie script that’s so hilarious.
We believe Murray. Jarmusch is a wonderful filmmaker and with an impressive cast supporting him, I’m sure the finished project is filled with lots of laughs.
Check out the trailer below. It’s scheduled to hit theaters June 14, 2019.
Most people focus more on movie trailers than movie posters these days, and that’s a shame, ’cause a good movie poster can tell quite the story.
Just take a look at the new poster for Spike Lee’s‘BlacKkKlansman’ film. Take a look at the poster. A real long look.
Did you do it? Okay, now try to figure out what the movie is about. Does it match with the synopsis below? I bet it does. That’s how impressive this poster is. This movie doesn’t even need a trailer.
“From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.”
We are super excited for this film. The early reviews coming out are extremely positive. It’ll hit theaters August 10, 2018.
We were beginning to think this film would never be released, but it looks like things are on the right track now because a trailer was just released.
Terry Gilliam has been trying to make this comic fantasy film for over 15 years now. Back in 2000, production on the project briefly started with Johnny Depp, but it was terminated rather quickly due to floods, financial issues and illnesses.
“After several more starts and stops, the movie went into production again last year with Jonathan Pryce starring as a modern-day man who claims to be Don Quixote and Adam Driver as his would-be Sancho Panza, a cynical TV commercials director.”
The first trailer was released this week, so that’s certainly good news. However, there are still a few more obstacles standing in its way. It was originally set to premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, but it was removed due to legal issues with one of the film’s former producers.
We’re not sure how this legal trouble will impact the release of the film, but obviously it didn’t hold them back from releasing a trailer. There is no release date scheduled at the moment, but hopefully it’ll be in a theater near you before the end of the year.
We have been waiting for this one. Steven Soderbergh’sLogan Lucky has released its first photo, via its official Twitter account, and it features the three stars of the film: Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig and Adam Driver.
As reported by Dark Horizons, the heist film will follow two brothers (played by Tatum and Driver) “who set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Craig plays a criminal type they recruit to help them pull off their scheme.”
The cast for this movie is stacked. In addition to the three leads mention above, you also have Riley Keough, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank and Dwight Yoakam.
This will be Soderbergh’s first film since 2013’s Side Effects. Logan Lucky is scheduled to hit theaters August 18, 2017.
