Hillcoat to Direct The Promised Land

UPDATE: Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, and Mia Wasikowska have joined the film, again titled, The Wettest County in the World. Glad to hear a project directed by John Hillcoat and penned by Nick Cave will see the light of day.

UPDATE: Gosling and Adams have dropped out of production. It looks like the project might be dead.

John Hillcoat is soon to be at work adapting another piece of literature: The Wettest County in the World, written by Matt Bondurant, and scripted by 'Proposition' writer Nick Cave. I was initially skeptical after hearing about the casting of Shia LaBeouf, but with Ryan Gosling and Amy Adams onboard this seems like a much more rounded out cast. If this turns out to be half as good as The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford I will be in line opening night.

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
