‘Free Fire’ First Look

Ben Wheatley’s last film, High Rise, which you can find me enjoying the hell out of here, was a huge step up for the director, and his next will be another leap again.

Free Fire, which Empire posted the first image from today, is his first film set in the US and sees him assemble an impressive cast of Cillian Murphy, Michael Smiley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Sam Riley and Enzo Cilenti.

What’s more, it’s being executive produced by Martin Scorsese, who is the man you want to have on board when making a 70s crime drama and was one of Wheatley’s directorial inspirations for the movie.

Free Fire is set in Boston in 1978, centring on the fallout from a gun-running deal gone wrong brokered by Larson’s character in a deserted warehouse. On one side is two Irishmen (Murphy and Smiley), on the other a pair of arms traffickers (Hammer and Shalto Copley). Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE: The Beautiful Lie star Sarah Snook is in negotiations to appear in Lionsgate’s The Glass Castle, the Destin Daniel Cretton-directed adaptation of the best-selling memoir by Jeannette Walls.

Like the book, the film will chart Wall’s dysfunctional, impoverished upbringing in the American Southwest and its impact on her later writing career; the deal isn’t done yet, but Snook would play Walls’ sister opposite Brie Larson as Walls, with Naomi Watt and Woody Harrelson as their parents. Cretton is writing the script with Andrew Lanham and Marti Noxon; Erik Feig and Gil Netter are producing. The Glass Castle is another potential hit for Lionsgate that’s based on successful IP – the book spent 261 weeks on the New York Times best sellers list and went on to sell nearly 3 million copies.

Snook recently starred in the Old Vic production of The Master Builder alongside Ralph Feinnes, and held the lead role in ABC’s 6-part miniseries The Beautiful Lie. Other credits include Steve Jobs, The Dressmaker opposite Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth, Holding The Man with Guy Pierce and Geoffrey Rush, the ABC pilot Clementine, and the Robert Heinlein adaptation Predestination with Ethan Hawke and Noah Taylor. She’s repped by UTA, Jenny Rawlings, and Shanahan Management.

Naomi Watts Joins Brie Larson in “Glass Castle”

Naomi Watts joins Brie Larson in Glass Castle

Lionsgate‘s adaptation of Jeanette Walls’ bestselling memoir The Glass Castle switched out Jennifer Lawrence for recent Oscar winner Brie Larson (Trainwreck, Room) late last year, and now The Hollywood Reporter confirms they’ve added another heavy-hitter to the cast in the form of Naomi Watts (The Divergent Series: Allegiant, Birdman).

Watts will play Larson’s character’s eccentric mother, while Woody Harrelson is onboard to portray her alcoholic dad. Shooting is set to begin in Montreal this June.

The 2006 source material is officially described as follows:

Jeannette Walls grew up with parents whose ideals and stubborn nonconformity were both their curse and their salvation. Rex and Rose Mary Walls had four children. In the beginning, they lived like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns, camping in the mountains. Rex was a charismatic, brilliant man who, when sober, captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and above all, how to embrace life fearlessly. Rose Mary, who painted and wrote and couldn’t stand the responsibility of providing for her family, called herself an “excitement addict.” Cooking a meal that would be consumed in fifteen minutes had no appeal when she could make a painting that might last forever. Later, when the money ran out, or the romance of the wandering life faded, the Walls retreated to the dismal West Virginia mining town—and the family—Rex Walls had done everything he could to escape. He drank. He stole the grocery money and disappeared for days. As the dysfunction of the family escalated, Jeannette and her brother and sisters had to fend for themselves, supporting one another as they weathered their parents’ betrayals and, finally, found the resources and will to leave home.

The Glass House will be directed by Destin Cretton, who previously worked with Larson for her breakout role in his 2013 indie hit Short Term 12. Marti Noxon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” Fright Night) initially adapted the film’s screenplay with Cretton, with Nicholl Fellowship-winning screenwriter Andrew Lanham performing additional rewrites.
