The Paperboy Poster Revealed

Mean 'n' moody first look at Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron in the new film from Precious director Lee Daniels.

Posted 3rd January 2012, 12:39pm in Film
The first official look at The Paperboy is a noirish, retro poster.

The unusually stylish promo one sheet (by recent Hollywood standards) shows Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman front and centre, with co-stars Matthew McConaughey and John Cusack.

Oscar-nominated Precious director Lee Daniels is tackling Pete Dexter's 1995 novel, which the Deadwood author has adapted. McConaughey plays a reporter investigating the possible wrongful conviction of a man (Cusack) on death row. The journalist recruits his troublesome little brother (Efron) to help, but the younger sibling ends up falling for a woman (Kidman) who writes passionate letters to Cusack's prisoner.

Millenium Pictures aim to release the Florida-set thriller this year. Poster courtesy of EW.com.

He's not in High School anymore! Nicole Kidman shoots Zac Efron a sexy look in first poster for The Paperboy

By Leah Simpson

She wowed when she was spotted on the set of her brand new movie with beach blonde locks, now Nicole Kidman is set to stir up more of a fuss as the poster for The Paperboy is released.
The 44-year-old actress can be seen shooting co-star Zac Efron, 24, a suggestive glance in the retro-style image in which the actor shows emphasises his muscular frame by resting his arm out of a car window.
Despite Kidman being 20 years his senior, it is clear the pair have great chemistry in the movie which hits screens in 2012.


All-star cast: The crime movie also stars John Cusack as Hillary Van Wetter

John Cusack spotted filming ‘The Frozen Ground’ in Alaska

John Cusack spotted filming ‘The Frozen Ground’ in Alaska

Yesterday, The Frozen Ground, starring John Cusack, began filming in Anchorage, Alaska.
The movie tells the real-life story of serial killer Robert Hansen, aka the “Butcher Baker”, who, between 1980-1983, kidnapped and raped at least 21 women before flying them out to a remote Alaskan location, where he would release them to hunt and kill them.
On Monday, they started filming outside Paris Bakery on Muldoon Rd in Anchorage, which is playing the role of “Hansen’s Bakery,” the shop owned by Robert Hansen. From what we’ve heard, it sounds like the will be filming outside the bakery for a few days.

According to The News Tribune, yesterday’s scenes included a vintage brown Oldsmobile arriving and parking outside the bakery just before Cusack, who plays Hansen, greets a man carrying a loaf of bread out of the shop.
The movie also stars Vanessa Hudgens, Nicolas Cage, and 50 Cent.

Movie snow? Salt and fabric

From Kyle Hopkins
in Anchorage
Three actors playing Alaska State Troopers waited Wednesday in an East Anchorage backyard as a tall man sifted through several cases of handguns.
"I'm a Realtor, actually," said a trooper in a vintage trench coat as Jason Hammond, the film's property master, prepared to hand the men their Smith & Wesson revolvers.
The weapons are fakes, the props supervisor said. All except one. "Nicolas Cage will carry a real gun, as per his request," Hammond said.
Welcome to day three of filming on "The Frozen Ground," a thriller based on the arrest of Alaska serial killer Robert Hansen. The movie spans three weeks in the investigation leading to Hansen's capture as icy fall turns to early winter in 1980s Anchorage.
With no snow yet in the city, the frozen ground in "The Frozen Ground" was played Wednesday by drifts of salt on top of white fabric surrounding a Muldoon home, not far from where the real Hansen lived.
Hansen himself is played by John Cusack, while Cage portrays a state trooper on his tail. Both actors appeared in scenes filmed Wednesday: Cage's character on stakeout in a Cadillac Brougham across the street from the Hansen house. Cusack peeking through the curtains at the suspicious car.
"Basically, any scene that shoots in or around this house, no matter where it is in the script, is being shot today because we're not going to come back here twice," said producer Mark Ordesky.
Just out of frame, trucks full of film equipment lined the street in what is becoming a common sight in Anchorage following the 2010 production of the Drew Barrymore film "Big Miracle." The family-friendly whale rescue tale, also inspired by true events, was the first modern, major movie filmed entirely in Alaska.
"Frozen Ground" is shaping up to be a smaller-scale, faster-paced production.
A producer told the Daily News earlier this year that "Whales," opening in February, would cost in the mid-$30 million range. "Frozen Ground" producer Randall Emmett said his film will cost in the mid-$20 million range.
Emmett, like every film producer to consider making movies in the state, is an evangelist for the 3-year-old Alaska tax credit program that allow filmmakers to recoup up to 44 percent of their spending. The public subsidy is among the most generous in the country.
"When a state gets an incentive at this level, like Alaska has, people now are going to really look to come here," said Emmett, who has served as a producer on more than 60 movies -- released or now in production -- since 2000.
Some of those films feature Emmett's business partner, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, who will soon begin filming the part of a pimp in "Frozen Ground."
Emmett said he was the most prolific producer in Michigan before that state gutted its tax incentives, and said he'd be interested in investing in movie-making infrastructure, such as a studio, in Alaska if the state commits long-term to incentives.
While the "Big Miracle" shoot spanned about 60 days and more 20 locations, according to permits the filmmakers filed with the city, "Frozen Ground" will be filmed in 26 days, said unit production manager Tracey Landon.
About 40 Alaskans are working on the movie crew, Landon said. That's about half the total. The cast of 50 includes another 30 Alaskans, while roughly 725 more will appear as extras, she said.
In the backyard of the house, the three movie state troopers were issued their weapons.
"So which one of us gets to tackle Cusack?" the real estate man asked. None of you, the props supervisor replied.
"Obviously, guys, there's no reason to pull these out of their holsters, so please don't," Hammond said.
The men were shown how to attach holsters to their belts. One, Ryan Rockom, ought to know. An Anchorage police officer, his 7-year-old boy plays Hansen's son in the movie and filmmakers offered him a small part of his own.
Rockom worked the night shift the evening before filming and was scheduled to be back on duty Wednesday night.

John Cusack, Malin Akerman to star in "Numbers Station" --- John Cusack Joins Malin Akerman In The Numbers Station

John Cusack, Malin Akerman to star in "Numbers Station"

By Joshua L. Weinstein

Tue Oct 25, 2011 11:10am EDT

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - John Cusack and Malin Akerman will star in "The Numbers Station," which starts shooting in November, Content Film announced Monday night.

Ethan Hawke originally was to star in and produce the thriller.

According to Content, "Cusack plays a disgraced black ops agent tasked with a dead-end job of protecting a code operator for an isolated covert CIA broadcast station played by Akerman. His mission is simple: protect the code operator. Keep her safe and secure, whilst knowing that she must never be taken alive..."

F. Scott Frazier wrote the script. Frazier is an increasingly hot commodity in Hollywood. In February, he sold a spec script, "Line of Sight," to Warner Bros. for Joel Silver to produce.

"The Numbers Station" will be directed by Kasper Barfoed, the Danish director of "Kandidaten" ("The Candidate"), "Listetyven" ("The Performance") and the award-winning children's feature "Tempelriddernes skat" ("The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar").

Cusack starred in "2012," "Con Air" and "Grosse Pointe Blank," among others. Akerman starred in "The Proposal," "Watchmen" and "Couples Retreat." She stars in New Line's upcoming musical "Rock of Ages."

Content Film International acquired "The Numbers Station" for worldwide distribution at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

Hawke's Under the Influence Productions no longer is attached.

John Cusack Joins Malin Akerman In The Numbers Station
published: 2011-10-25 01:29:51 Author: Eric Eisenberg

Back in April of 2010, it looked as though Ethan Hawke was going to be reteaming with Sean and Bryan Furst - the producers of the vampire flick Daybreakers - for the action thriller The Numbers Station. Since then news about the project has been slim, with the exception of news that broke in September of last year, announcing that Malin Akerman had joined the cast as well. Fast forward a year and while Akerman is attached, it looks like Hawke has been replaced.

Variety is reporting that John Cusack has been cast to star in The Numbers Station. Directed by Danish filmmaker Kasper Barfoed (The Candidate) and written by F. Scott Frazier, the movie is about a "disgraced black-ops agent" who is reduced to playing bodyguard to a code operator for a secret CIA broadcast station. While the article doesn't say it, one can assume that the drama begins when the outpost falls under attack. The film is scheduled to go into production next month.

Cusack has a fairly heavy upcoming schedule, with The Factory bowing in December and The Raven, Limbo, The Paperboy, and The Frozen Ground all coming out in 2012. The actor's last film was the Steve Pink comedy Hot Tub Time Machine.

This project sounds like pretty standard action fare, but I will say that I do like John Cusack in the role better than Ethan Hawke. Nothing against Hawke - he's a fine actor - but any time I get to be reminded of Cusack movies like Grosse Pointe Blank I see it as a win.

Katherine LaNasa Snags Roles Opposite Will Ferrell, John Cusack (Exclusive)
4:10 PM PDT 10/19/2011 by Borys Kit
The veteran TV actress will play Ferrell's wife in Warner Bros.' comedy "Dog Fight" and Cusack's wife in the thriller "The Frozen Ground."
Katherine LaNasa, who has spent the better part of the past decade making various television appearances, has booked roles opposite major stars in a couple of high-profile movies.

LaNasa has nabbed the role of Will Ferrell’s wife in Dog Fight, the Warner Bros. political comedy that also stars Zack Galifianakis. She also will play John Cusack’s wife in The Frozen Ground, a serial killer thriller that also stars Nicolas Cage.

Jay Roach is directing Dog Fight, once known as Southern Rivals, with Gary Sanchez Prods. and Everyman Pictures producing. The comedy tells the tale of two rival politicians in a small congressional district in South Carolina. Sarah Baker, another actress who has long worked in television, was cast as Galifianakis’ wife earlier this week.

Frozen Ground details the true story of the capture of serial killer Robert Hansen in Alaska. Cage is an Alaska state trooper tracking Hansen, played by Cusack. Randall Emmett and Mark Ordesky are producing the indie, which starts shooting this week in Alaska.

LaNasa, repped by IFA Talent, has appeared on shows such as Two and a Half Men, Big Love and Judging Amy, but her newfound heat could be due to work in Jayne Mansfield’s Car for writer-director Billy Bob Thornton; LaNasa snagged that role when it was initially earmarked for Robin Wright.

Casting Bits: John Cusack and Johnny Knoxville in ‘Carnaval’, Katherine LaNasa in ‘Dog Fight’ and ‘The Frozen Ground’, Vanessa Redgrave, Melanie Laurent in ‘Night Train to Lisbon’
Posted on Wednesday, October 19th, 2011 by Angie Han
John Cusack and Johnny Knoxville are set to star in Carnaval, a comedy directed by Josh Stern. Cusack will play a sports scout who tavels to Rio de Janeiro during Carnaval in order to sign a soccer star, while Knoxville has been cast as Cusack’s musician best friend who tags along. Cusack’s character needs to bring the player on board so that he can take over his agency, but his plans go awry when Knoxville’s character sleeps with the player’s girlfriend. Carnaval will begin shooting in Rio this January.

Knoxville’s been on a roll lately in terms of landing roles. Over the past few months, he’s signed on for the teen comedy Fun Size, an untitled camping comedy with Patton Oswalt, and the Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick The Last Stand. Cusack also has a handful of movies lined up for next year, including Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy, the Edgar Allan Poe thriller The Raven, and the serial killer drama The Frozen Ground. [The Hollywood Reporter]

After the jump, TV actress Katherine LaNasa gains two movie husbands, and a whole bunch of people board Night Train to Lisbon.

Speaking of Cusack, the actor has just gained an onscreen wife in the form of TV vet Katherine LaNasa, who’s just been cast in The Frozen Ground. Written and directed by Scott Walker, the thriller is based on the real-life tale of Alaskan serial killer Robert Hansen, who’ll be played in the movie by Cusack. The eclectic cast also includes Nicolas Cage as a state trooper, 50 Cent as a pimp, and Vanessa Hudgens as an escaped victim.
The Frozen Ground is one of two gigs that LaNasa has recently picked up. The other, Jay Roach‘s Dog Fight (formerly titled Southern Rivals, and then just Rivals) should be much lighter. The comedy follows two politicians (Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis) running against each other in a congressional district race in South Carolina. LaNasa will play Ferrell’s wife, while Sarah Baker will co-star as Galifianakis’.

LaNasa’s extensive small-screen work includes parts in Two and a Half Men and Big Love, but she’s been gravitating toward film roles as of late. Her most notable upcoming gig is Jayne Mansfield’s Car, directed by Billy Bob Thornton and co-starring Kevin Bacon, Ray Stevenson, and John Hurt. [The Hollywood Reporter]

We haven’t heard much about Bille August‘s Night Train to Lisbon since Jeremy Irons joined back in June, but a slew of intriguing names have just become attached to the project. Vanessa Redgrave, Melanie Laurent, Bruno Ganz, Christopher Lee, Lena Olin, Martina Gedeck, and Jack Huston will also star in the thriller, an adaptation of Pascal Mercier‘s bestselling novel. They’ll be joined by August Diehl, Nicolau Breyner, Adriano Luz, Jose Wallenstein, and Beatriz Batarda, all of whom were also recently announced for the picture.

The plot centers around a Swiss classics professor who saves a mysterious Portuguese woman from jumping to her death. Soon afterward, he falls in love with a Portuguese novel that inspires him to quit his job and travel to Lisbon in order to learn more about its writer. It is not clear at this point which actors will be playing which characters. The existential thriller is scheduled to begin shooting in March. [Variety]

Katherine LaNasa Joins DOG FIGHT (Formerly SOUTHERN RIVALS) and THE FROZEN GROUND

by Brendan Bettinger    Posted:October 19th, 2011

Katherine LaNasa landed the role of wife in a pair of high-profile projects today.  First up is Dog Fight (formerly known as Southern Rivals), the political comedy that pits Will Ferrell against Zach Galifianakis.  The comic actors play two rival politicians in a small congressional district in South Carolina.  LaNasa is set to play Ferrell’s wife; Sarah Baker was cast as Galifianakis’ wife earlier in the week.  Jay Roach (Dinner for Schmucks) will direct Dog Night for an August 10, 2012 release.
Details on LaNasa’s other wifely role in The Frozen Ground after the jump.

THR reports that LaNasa will play the wife of John Cusack’s character in The Frozen Ground.  The film is based on the true story of an Alaskan family man (Cusack) who, for 12 years, abducted over 24 women and flew them to the wilderness where he hunted them for sport.  Nicolas Cage is set to play Detective Glenn Flothe, who teamed up with the serial killer’s only escaped victim (Vanessa Hudgens) to eventually bring him to justice.  Scott Walker wrote the script, and will make his directorial debut.  Randall Emmett and Mark Ordeky are producing.  The Frozen Ground starts shooting this week in Alaska.
LaNasa has spent the last decade or so paying her dues in television guest spots on Judging Amy, House, and Two and a Half Men among others.  Recently, she was one of the few stars of Valentine’s Day who wasn’t a household name.  THR speculates that this newfound attention could be due to her upcoming role in Billy Bob Thorton’s Jayne Mansfield’s Car.




John Cusack And Johnny Knoxville Teaming Up For Carnaval Comedy

published: 2011-10-19 15:14:08 Author: David Wharton
John Cusack and Johnny Knoxville are two people I would never expect to see listed together, unless it was on a list of People I Would Never Expect to See Listed Together. Nevertheless, the unlikely has become reality, because THR says the pair have both signed on for Carnaval, a new comedy to be directed by Josh Stern.

As the title suggests, Carnaval will be set amidst Rio de Janeiro's annual epic festival. Cusack will play a sports agent who is sent to Rio to try and sign an incredibly talented local soccer player. He's got a lot on the line: if he makes the deal, he will inherit the entire agency for which he works. Knoxville will play a friend of Cusack's character who tags along for the ride, then winds up unwittingly boning the soccer star's girlfriend. Shouldn't be a problem, right? What happens in Carnaval, stays in Carnaval.

The script was originally written by a dude named David Styne, himself a former agent. Clearly Styne subscribes to the "write what you know" philosophy. Director Stern then came along and did a rewrite pass on the script. Those guys should totally form a law firm. "Styne and Stern: A Name You Can Trust."

The core concept is pretty basic, but the dynamic between Cusack and Knoxville could be fun. Also, Carnaval will be shooting this January in Rio de Janeiro, so it should have some great scenery if nothing else. Of course, if The Hangover Part II proved anything, it's that exotic locales won't make up for an underwhelming script. We'll just have to wait and see.

Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage will star in the movie detailing the police investigation of Hansen, who preyed on prostitutes and strippers in the 1970s and early '80s in Anchorage. Hansen confessed to killing 17 women; some he let loose in the Alaska wilderness and hunted.
Cage will play an Alaska State Trooper who investigated the murders. John Cusack will play Hansen, and Vanessa Hudgens, of "High School Musical" fame, will play a victim who escaped.

 50 Cent Lands Role As A Pimp In Serial Killer Movie That Also Stars Nicolas Cage & John Cusack
 
50 Cent has landed a significant role in the upcoming movie Frozen Ground.

The movie is based on real life serial killer Robert Hansen aka the "Butcher Baker." Between 1980-1983 Hansen kidnapped and raped at least 21 women before flying them out to a remote Alaskan location, where he would release, then hunt and kill them.

Initially it was announced that 50 would serve as one of the executive producers of the film, which is being produced by Emmett/Furla Films. Fif has also now landed a "substantial" role in the film as a pimp according to Emmett.

The director thought that there was a great role for him and I gave him the script,” Emmett told the Anchorage Daily News.

He’s basically moved a lot of tour dates and a bunch of stuff that he has on his calendar to be committed and up in Alaska."

Frozen Ground will also star John Cusack as Hansen. Vanessa Hudgens will play 17-year old would-be victim Cindy Paulson, who escaped from the killer. And Nicolas Cage is set to play the role of an Alaska State Trooper who tracks Hansen down with Paulson's help.

Shooting for the film starts October 10 in Anchorage with a $27 million budget. http://www.thisis50.com/profiles/blogs/50-cent-lands-role-as-a-pimp-in-serial-killer-movie-that-also

Comic-Con ‘11: John Cusack Says ‘The Raven’ “An Art Movie And A Popcorn Movie” Rolled Into One

Comic-Con ‘11: John Cusack Says ‘The Raven’ “An Art Movie And A Popcorn Movie” Rolled Into One

As you already know by now, we’ve been kind of cautiously optimistic about “The Raven.” Directed by “V For Vendetta” and “Ninja Assassin” helmer James McTeigue and starring John Cusack, Luke Evans, Brendan Gleeson and Alice Eve, the film takes a interesting twist on the life of poet Edgar Allan Poe (Cusack), pitching the famed writer into a serial killer thriller which features Poe teaming up with a detective (Evans) to track down a murderer who mimics his work, in the last week of the writer’s life. In addition to ripping his books for ideas on how to kill people, the murderer will also kidnap Cusack’s fiancee played by Eve.
This afternoon at Comic-Con Cusack, Eve and McTeigue met with the throng to talk about the film and the lead actor confirmed that it will be a mix of sensibilities. “It’s an art movie and a popcorn movie all at once, so it gives you everything you want out of making a movie,” he said, adding, “Up until this point there had never been a Poe movie because of how miserable his life was. There was never an opportunity without sort of having this dour film….To do justice to Poe, you have to honor what his is life was.”
Cusack and McTeigue researched Poe in depth, reading his letters and finding inspiration in Peter Ackroyd‘s book “Poe: A Life Cut Short.” The film obviously takes liberties with his life, but the movie promises to be somewhat impressionistic with Cusack describing the picture as “a dream I had about Poe, a dream James McTeigue had about Poe, a dream Alice Eve had about Poe.”
The real life Poe lived almost as strangely as he died—found wearing someone else’s clothes, wandering the streets of Baltimore pleading for help before dying—and his uneasy relationship with women was likely due to the tragic loss of his mother when he was 3 years old, followed by the death of his wife when he was 25. “It’s obviously all conjecture because I wasn’t there, it seemed to me that he held females up to an almost—he didn’t really like the company of men…he saw any man, he wanted to get into a fight with them, he either want to get into a duel with them or insult them,” Cusack elaborated about Poe’s relationships. “He held [women] up to a muse-like—his version of heaven was the perfect, untouched woman…he had this sense of yearning for women, but women abandoning him.”
“He was a bit of rock star. He’d go to a salon, these high society functions, and women would fawn all over him,” he adds. But whether or not he cared for their company is another story.
But it certainly sounds that beneath the thus far impeccably put together surface there will be a real character core infused with a dark undercurrent. “The Raven” flies into theaters on March 9, 2012.—reporting by Kimber Myers.  http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/archives/2011/07/22/comic-con_11_john_cusack_says_the_raven_an_art_movie_and_a_popcorn_movie/

How do you follow a panel with Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson?  You don’t do it with another blockbuster.  Instead, you take some lesser known movies and attempt to boost their profile.  And for film nerds, having Steven Sodebergh on hand certainly doesn’t hurt.  Soderbergh has cast MMA fighter Gina Carano as the lead in his spy thriller Haywire and surrounded her with an outstanding cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, and Michael Douglas.
Relativity has also brought James McTeigue’s The Raven starring John Cusack, Alice Eve, and Luke Evans.  It’s an intriguing premise where Edgar Allan Poe (Cusack) and a detective (Evans) attempts to discover who is using his writing as the inspiration for a series of murders.  Hit the jump to read about Relativity’s presentation for Haywire and The Raven. http://collider.com/haywire-the-raven-comic-con/104349/

Nicolas Cage and John Cusack in Talks to Star in Serial Killer Drama THE FROZEN GROUND

Nicolas Cage and John Cusack in Talks to Star in Serial Killer Drama THE FROZEN GROUND

nicolas-cage-john-cusack-slice
Any day that involves a Con Air reunion is a good day. Nicolas Cage and John Cusack, who were the stars of the 1997 action film centering on a prison-hijacked plane (genius!), are in negotiations to reteam on The Frozen Ground. The film is based on the true story of an Alaskan family man who, for 12 years, abducted over 24 women and flew them to the wilderness where he hunted them for sport. Detective Glenn Flothe teamed up with the serial killer’s only escaped victim to eventually bring him to justice.
If you thought you knew who would play what role, you’re probably wrong. Deadline reports that Cage is eyeing the part of Detective Flothe while Cusack would play Robert Hansen, the serial killer. Scott Walker wrote and will make his directorial debut on the project. If both actors sign on, this’ll make for one hell of a creepy project.

Nicolas Cage and John Cusack are in talks to star in "The Frozen Ground," based on true events surrounding Alaska's most notorious serial predator, Robert Hansen.

Cusack is in talks to play a respected family man who for over 12 years abducted more than 24 women and flew them into the Alaskan wilderness to be hunted. Cage is in talks to play a principled and dedicated Alaskan State Trooper who finds Hansen's only surviving teen victim alive on the street. The trooper and the young girl finally bring Hansen to justice.

The new movie is written and will be directed by newcomer Scott Walker, who will be making his feature film helming debut.

The Raven's First Poster Is Written In Blood

The Raven's First Poster Is Written In Blood

published: 2011-07-21 17:25:14 Author: Josh Tyler
John Cusack is playing Edgar Allan Poe and, much as I loved Hot Tub Time Machine, at this point in his career it’s probably a good idea. The movie he’s doing it in is called The Raven and it’s a mystery-thriller in which the famously bummed out poet is enlisted by the police to hunt down a serial killer.

The movie’s first poster has arrived and while it doesn’t actually feature Cusack’s famous face (plenty of images showing him in full Edgar Allan Poe costume here) it’s still incredibly cool. Click the image below to see it in high-res.

THE RAVENMarch 9, 2012
DIRECTOR: James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin)
WRITERS: Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare
CAST: John Cusack- EDGAR ALLAN POE (Being John Malkovich, 2012)
Luke Evans- INSPECTOR EMMIT FIELDS (Immortals, The Three Musketeers)
Alice Eve- EMILY (Men In Black III)
Brendan Gleeson- COLONEL HAMILTON (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1)
Oliver Jackson-Cohen- CANTRELL (Faster)
PRODUCERS: Mark D Evans, Trevor Macy, and Aaron Ryder
EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: Jesus Martinez
In this gritty thriller, Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack, Being John Malkovich) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans, Immortals) to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders. Directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin), the film also stars Alice Eve (Sex and the City 2), Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Faster).
When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper—part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe. But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story.
Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe’s writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author’s help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late.

The first image of John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe in the thriller The Raven has landed online. Directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta), the film is set in 1849 and stars Cusack as the iconic author/poet who joins forces with a detective in hopes of stopping a murderer who is inspired by Poe’s work. Luke Evans, Alice Eve, and Brendan Gleeson also star in the pic. I’m really liking the Se7en vibe the logline gives and, as a fan of both Poe and Cusack, I’m pretty excited about checking this one out when it hits theaters on March 9th, 2012.

First Official Photo of John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe in "The Raven" Thriller

Posted: June 24th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff







Relativity Media has unveiled the first official photo of John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe in "The Raven" thriller, directed by James McTeigue (Ninja Assassin, V for Vendetta) and set to hit theaters on March 9th, 2012. Check it out below.

The new movie is a fictional story about what would happen if a serial killer challenged poet Edgar Allan Poe (Cusack) to solve a series of killings inspired by his own stories.

"It's sort of 'Se7en' meets a series of Poe stories. It's set in 1850s Baltimore, and it's about creating Poe's version of 1850s Baltimore, him moving through it. So it has a lot of the Poe stories interwoven into it," McTeigue previously stated, adding that Poe's real life will be used in the film as well

First Official Look At John Cusack In The Raven

published: 2011-06-24 16:59:21 Author: Eric Eisenberg
Though I'm not entirely sure why, I'm actually looking forward to James McTeigue's The Raven. Admittedly it's kind of strange to take one of history's greatest writers, Edgar Allan Poe, and turn him into a detective, but it could be fun and has a solid cast lined up in John Cusack, Alice Eve, Luke Evans and Brendan Gleeson. Back in November, some on-set photographers managed to get a shot of Cusack in costume, but today the first official photo has been released.

Though the new still cuts off at the actor's thighs so you can't see if he's still wearing those sweet black sneakers, you can't say that Cusack doesn't look pretty damn cool in the get up. Based on a script by Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare, the plot is about a serial killer who is basing his crimes on those in Poe's stories. The movie isn't set to be released until March 9, 2012, but it will be featured in a Hall H panel at this year's San Diego Comic Con, so don't be too surprised if footage finds its way online sooner than later.

John Cusack stars in Dictablanda

15/04/2011

John Cusack not only stars in Dictablanda, due for release in 2012, he also wrote it. Details are sketchy, but we know it's a political screwball comedy that sees the High Fidelity star embroiled in international mayhem. The tagline is 'People don't die, they get killed'. Intriguing!

John Cusack to Star in DICTABLANDA

by Brendan Bettinger    Posted:March 7th, 2011 at 10:07 pm

john-cusack-slice




John Cusack has signed on to star in the screwball comedy Dictablanda (translated “Soft Dictator”). Cusack co-wrote the script with Kevin Morris and co-star Paul Hipp (Terriers); Cusack and Morris will produce along with Pablo Bossi of Pampa Films. Plot details are vague other than the promise of “international mayhem,” yet the film already has a baffling tagline: “People don’t die, they get killed.” Variety reports that Dictablanda is filming on location in Argentina over the next two months under the direction of Alejandro Agresti (The Lake House).

Cusack recently finished shooting his portrayal of Edgar Allan Poe in the thriller The Raven. The actor has two other films in the can with no set release date in sight: the period piece Shanghai and the crime drama The Factory.





John Cusack To Star In Screwball Comedy Dictablanda
published: 2011-03-07 22:09:34 Author: Eric Eisenberg
John Cusack doesn't always make the greatest movies in the world, but the guy is so incredibly likable that it's even easy to sit through some of the worse ones (*cough*2012*cough*) . That in mind, when Cusack gets something great to work with - like Grosse Pointe Blank or High Fidelity - it becomes something truly special. Dictablanda sounds like it could fall into the latter category.


Variety has learned that Cusack has signed on to star in the aforementioned film (which translates from Spanish into "Soft Dictator") that is described as "a screwball comedy of errors." Directed by Alejandro Agresti and based on a script by Agresti, Cusack, Kevin Morris and Paul Hipp, the actor plays a man caught up in an international situation. Hipp, who previously starred with Cusack in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil will co-star. Sold with the tagline "People don't die, they get killed" the film is set to go into production later this month in Argentina.


I truly love a well-made screwball comedy, and I must say that Cusack getting a co-writing credit instills great hope (he co-wrote both classic Cusack films that I mentioned above). Let's hope this is one to look out for come next year.

The film, which has the tagline "People don't die, they get killed," is currently filming on location in Buenos Aires and Mar de Ajo, Argentina throughout March and April.

Cusack was involved with co-writing the script, alongside Agresti, Kevin Morris and Paul Hipp (who will also appear).


The title is a political term used to describe dictatorships with a high regard for civil liberties and is described as being a "screwball comedy of manners."


Production on Dictablanda is set to begin immediately, shooting this month and the next in Buenos Aires and Mar de Ajo, Argentina.

Amanda Seyfried And John Cusack Teaming Up For Thriller The Bullet?

Amanda Seyfried And John Cusack Teaming Up For Thriller The Bullet?

published: 2011-02-22 17:12:34 Author: Katey Rich

Amanda Seyfried's schedule is plenty packed these days, filming the futuristic thriller Now opposite Justin Timberlake, signing on recently for the kidnapping revenge film Gone, and getting ready to open her revisionist take on Red Riding Hood with director Catherine Hardwicke. But has she made room for one more movie in her lineup, to shoot in Boston this April?

According to Boston film production sources (via
Bleeding Cool) she has. They're hearing that director Patrick Alessandrin will be in the area come April to shoot The Bullet, which has Amanda Seyfriend and John Cusack on board to star. Here's the only information available about the plot:

"The dark thriller about a man only known as “The Clockmaker” who devises the ultimate plot of revenge against a seemingly random group of people by manipulating them to kill one another.



No word on whether Cusack will play the killer-- an interesting change of pace I'd actually be interested to see-- or just another one of the victims. Also no confirmation of whether or not the movie is as much of a Saw knockoff as it sounds right now. Both Seyfriend and Cusack have been known to make their share of garbage among actually good movies-- Cusack more than ever these days-- and Alessandrin's one major credit is B-13: Ultimatum, the sequel to the French action film that garnered relatively good reviews.

If the news is even true-- it's hard to confirm information on sites like this, and Bleeding Cool doesn't know anything more than we do-- we might have a bizarre Seyfried/Cusack pairing to look forward to, and also some questions about what was supposed to be Alessandrin's next project,
Ten with Bruce Willis. We'll let you know if we figure out more. http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Amanda-Seyfried-And-John-Cusack-Teaming-Up-For-Thriller-The-Bullet-23310.html

 

Amanda Seyfried and John Cusack may shoot new movie in Boston

by Christine on February 22, 2011 · in Boston,News


According to Wicked Leaked, a new movie called The Bullet will be shot in Boston this spring.
Though we have found little additional information about the movie, it is apparently “a dark thriller about a man only known as ‘The Clockmaker’ who devises the ultimate plot of revenge against a seemingly random group of people by manipulating them to kill one another.” Amanda Seyfried and John Cusack are set to star.
Michigan is also mentioned as a potential filming location but given the current state of their tax incentives, producers may be looking for a replacement location.

Amanda Seyfried And John Cusack To Star In Patrick Alessandrin’s The Bullet?Submitted by Brendon Connelly on February 22, 2011

As I understood it, Patrick Alessandrin is currently working on the thriller TEN with Bruce Willis. I don’t know the details of his schedule there – if he’s already shot the film, is currently mid-production, or if the film was delayed or even cancelled – but I do recall reports that filming was set to start in December.
Knowing what was going on with TEN would probably make matters clearer regarding this new report, and very possibly sift crap from gold. Let’s give the timing the benefit of the doubt for now.
Over on Beantown.Name, a site which offers updates on movie projects for actors and film crew seeking gigs around the Boston area, Alessandrin will be in the city this April to make The Bullet. Here’s how they pitch it:
Amanda Seyfried and John Cusack will star in the dark thriller about a man only known as “The Clockmaker” who devises the ultimate plot of revenge against a seemingly random group of people by manipulating them to kill one another.
Seyfried’s very hot right now, and Cusack’s a handsome devil, so this should be a popular cast. Alessandrin has also shown some capabilities with action in B-13: Ultimatum.
I’ve not been able to dig up any more info on the project so far, but stay tuned.
