‘Southpaw’ Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal Fights for Life

From director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and writers Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) and Richard Wenk (TThe Mechanic) comes Southpaw. It tells the story of Billy "The Great" Hope, Junior Middleweight Boxing Champion of the World. When tragedy strikes and he loses it all, Billy enters the battle of his life as he struggles to become a contender once again and win back those he loves. The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer, which features stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, Rachel McAdams and Naomie Harris.

Southpaw is about tragedy, loss and the painful road to redemption. Billy "The Great" Hope (Gyllenhaal) is the reigning Junior Middleweight Champion whose unorthodox stance, the so-called "Southpaw," consists of an ineloquent, though brutal, display of offensive fighting. One fueled by his own feelings of inadequacy and a desperate need for love, money and fame. With a beautiful family, home and financial security, Billy is on top both in and out of the ring until a tragic accident leaves his wife dead and sends him into a downward spiral. His days now an endless haze of alcohol and prescription drugs, his daughter taken by Child Services and his home repossessed by the bank, Billy's fate is all but sealed until a washed up former boxer named Tick agrees to take the bereaved pugilist under his wing so long as he agrees to his strict ethos.

Jake Gyllenhaal & Amy Adams Team for ‘Nocturnal Animals’

Jake Gyllenhaal has signed on to star in the upcoming adaptation Nocturnal Animals, based on Austin Wright's 1993 book Tony & Susan, with Amy Adams in talks for the female lead role. The project is not set up at a studio, but George Clooney and Grant Heslov's Smokehouse Pictures is producing, and the company has a first-look deal with Sony Pictures. The Hollywood Reporter also reveals that Joaquin Phoenix and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are being sought for supporting roles.

Austin Wright's book follows a woman named Susan, who receives a manuscript from her ex-husband, 20 years after she left him. The book, entitled Nocturnal Animals, follows two separate stories, the first centering on a man's vacation which turns violent and deadly, and the second telling Susan's story, as she must confront dark truths about herself. The adaptation will mark the filmmaking return of fashion designer Tom Ford, who made his directorial debut with the 2009 Best Picture nominee A Single Man.

‘Suicide Squad’ Director Teases Storyboard and Script

‘Suicide Squad’ Director Teases Storyboard and Script

Director David Ayer apparently isn't too affected by the lack of having a Rick Flagg locked in for his big screen comic book adaptation Suicide Squad. While he hasn't provided an update on the actor search, he has decided to give us all a slight little tease, showing off his workspace, where he is in the middle of drafting the script and creating storyboards. It's impossible to read any of the words, or even make out the lone figure who we see depicted here, but it's cool to see this side of the production nonetheless.

David Ayer is writing the script himself, based on the popular DC Comic about a group of super villains who go on a secret mission to clear their name. It was his latest drafted that reportedly caused Tom Hardy to step away from the project. If we're to believe the rumors swirling around the production, Hardy felt his character, Rick Flagg, was being pushed to the side to give Deadshot (Will Smith) and The Joker (Jared Leto) more screen time. Shortly after he left, it was announced that DC and Warner Bros. were pursuing Jake Gyllenhaal for the role. He turned them down. The last two names mentioned are Joel Edgerton and Jon Bernthal, two great actors who don't have the same marquee value as Tom Hardy and might be more open to a secondary role.
