Jared Leto to Work His Method Mayhem on Andy Warhol Biopic

In news that will either delight or horrify you (there seems to be no in between when it comes to Jared Leto), the actor with this year’s most controversial method approach is turning his attention to Andy Warhol for a new biopic about the iconic pop artist / photographer / Studio 54 fixture. And if you’re not particularly thrilled about that news, perhaps this will help: Wolf of Wall Street writer Terence Winter is developing the script.

‘Blair Witch’ Director Adam Wingard on the Challenges of Making a Scary Sequel and That Wild Ending

Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett have collaborated on several projects together, including recent genre favorites You’re Next and The Guest, in which they subversively repurposed familiar tropes in new and original ways — which is what makes their decision to create a sequel to The Blair Witch Project kind of surprising. A solid follow-up to the 1999 found footage classic, Blair Witch offers recognizable beats with bigger, more frightening (and louder) scares, and a third act that features a pretty clever twist. Ahead of the film’s release, we had a chance to speak with Wingard about the challenges of making a sequel to one of the most beloved horror films, the evolution of found footage and that crazy, mind-bending ending.

‘American Horror Story’ Season 6’s Meta-Twist Is Not Nearly as Clever as It Thinks

After weeks of enigmatic and intentionally misleading teasers (and one that was little more than a promo for Lady Gaga’s new single), American Horror Story finally revealed its mystery theme for Season 6 with last night’s premiere of My Roanoke Nightmare — or is it My Roanoke Nightmare: A True American Horror Story? Or American Horror Story: Roanoke? Whatever it is, it’s not likely to make up for the whiplash-inducing shifts in quality of the last three seasons, despite creator Ryan Murphy’s promise of a shorter, tighter and less convoluted installment in the anthology series.

Daniel Craig Bonds With Adam Driver in First ‘Logan Lucky’ Set Photos

The name is Bond…Bail Bond. At least that seems to be the case in these new photos from the set of Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, which features a nearly unrecognizable Daniel Craig alongside a very recognizable Adam Driver. Both actors are sporting prison stripes in the pics, which also offer a glimpse at Riley Keough’s character. In addition to the set photos, a new report reveals that Sebastian Stan has joined the cast of what’s been described as a “hillbilly heist” movie.

Ben Affleck Will Find Time to Direct and Star in ‘Witness For the Prosecution’

The DCEU has been keeping Ben Affleck pretty busy with Justice League and plans for a new solo Batman film, which the actor will also co-write and direct. Those commitments are partially responsible for the repeated delays on his Dennis Lehane adaptation, Live by Night, which may or may not hit theaters before the end of the year. Despite his increasingly crowded schedule, Affleck has picked up another project to direct and star in, but who knows when he’ll have the time to actually make it happen.

Keira Knightley to Play Live-Action Sugar Plum Fairy in Disney’s ‘The Nutcracker’

Of the many properties ripe for a live-action remake or retelling, The Nutcracker seems like one of the less obvious choices for Disney’s ever-growing roster, but, like Pete’s Dragon, maybe that’s what makes it sort of perfect. As evidenced by the casting of Misty Copeland, Disney is definitely sticking to the ballet concept for their new adaptation of the classic story, but she won’t be the only one dancing her way across the big screen; today brings word that Keira Knightley has joined the cast of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, in which she’ll play the Sugar Plum Fairy.

‘Star Trek 4’ Will Boldly Unite Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pine

Star Trek Beyond hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but there’s already talk of the next installment in the franchise — and if early reactions to Justin Lin’s new Trek sequel are to be believed, then we have every reason to be optimistic about the future of the series. But just in case you needed one more, J.J. Abrams has revealed his “incredibly exciting” idea for Star Trek 4, which will reportedly bring Chris Hemsworth back to the franchise to team up with Chris Pine.
