Were you nice to everyone in your past? The truth comes back to haunt us all in the first TV spot for STX Entertainment's The Gift, arriving in theaters July 31st. The TV spot comes just a month and a half after the first trailer for The Gift arrived that gave us our first look at this thriller, which marks the directorial debut of writer/producer/star Joel Edgerton. This new footage poses a very important question: can you really go through life having never wronged anyone? Even if you are unaware of how, or when, and even who you may have wronged...Chances are there is someone out there who won't ever forget it...Or you.
Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall) are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon's high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn't recognize Gordo (Joel Edgerton) at first, but after a seemingly coincidental series of encounters proves troubling, a horrifying secret from their past is uncovered after nearly 20 years. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: How well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?Read More
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.Read More
With Suicide Squad set to start shooting before summer, Warner Bros. and DC are scrambling to find a replacement for Tom Hardy, who dropped out of the project citing a scheduling conflict. While the studio was keen on having Jake Gyllenhaal replace him, it has since been reported that Gyllenhaal passed on the role of Rick Flagg. Now, a new rumor indicates that both Joel Edgerton and Jon Bernthal are being eyed for the role. A second report indicates that Gary Sinise has joined the movie as General Eiling, but that has not been officially confirmed. And a third report claims that Joe Manganiello is being targeted to play Deathstroke.
Jon Bernthal had been rumored for the role of Rick Flagg before Warner Bros. officially announced that Tom Hardy had won the part late last year. Having Bernthal join the movie makes sense, as he previously co-starred in director David Ayer's last project Fury, and the actor certainly fits the character's description.Read More
