“Chris Pine is attached to star in The Line, a gritty thriller that will be directed by David Gordon Green.” Borys Kit has details in the Hollywood Reporter, where Rebecca Ford reports that “Alexandre Moors, who made his feature directorial debut with 2013’s Blue Caprice, has been tapped to helm the remake of Korean film Failan.”
Oren Moverman “is set to direct Time Out of Mind,” notes the Playlist‘s Kevin Jagernauth, “and no, it’s not a science fiction movie. Instead, it stars Richard Gere, and is based on a story by Jeffrey Caine (The Constant Gardener, GoldenEye), about a New York man who tries to patch things up with his estranged daughter, all while struggling to get his life back on track after circumstances force him into a homeless shelter.”
M. Night Shyamalan and Bruce Willis are reuniting for Labor of Love, reports Deadline‘s Mike Fleming, Jr., while the Playlist‘s Kevin Jagernauth has word on another reunion: Tom Hanks will produce Meg Ryan’s directorial debut, Ithaca, “the story of 14-year-old Homer Macauley, who is determined to be the best and fastest bicycle telegraph messenger anyone has ever seen.” Set in 1942, Ithaca will feature Sam Shepard, Melanie Griffith, Jack Quaid and Ryan herself.
A Million Ways to Die in the West is out on May 30. And this is the red-band trailer.
Deadline‘s Fleming has another story, though, that’ll conjure more recent memories: “American Hustle helmer David O. Russell is in early talks to rewrite and direct an untitled Fox 2000 film about the remarkable life story of Joy Mangano, a struggling Long Island single mom of three who became one of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs with her self-wringing Miracle Mop invention.” And, surprise! “He wants Jennifer Lawrence to play Mangano.”
“Adrien Brody and Yvonne Strahovski have come on board indie crime thriller Manhattan Nocturne, with shooting starting in July,” reports Variety‘s Dave McNary. “Brian DeCubellis will direct from his own script with both DeCubellis and Campbell Scott producing. Scott and Jennifer Beals will also star.”
Also in Variety, Gordon Cox reports that Robert Zemeckis and screenwriter Bob Gale are turning Back to the Future into a stage musical. Fly, DeLorean, fly.
