A shortlist of actors Sony Pictures is considering to pair up with Tom Holland’s Nathan Drake for their Uncharted movie has been released. The role being Sully those actors said to be on the studio shortlist include Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine, Matthew McConaughey, and Woody Harrelson.

They also add that filming could begin this July.

For the character of Sully, the studio is looking for a Caucasian male, 40-49. The impressive shortlist for the Uncharted character features some of Hollywood’s current, big-ticket, lead actors. Among them is Holland’s Avengers: Infinity War (and Endgame?) co-star Chris Hemsworth. Joining him on the “Interest” list are also Matthew McConaughey, Wonder Woman 1984’s Chris Pine, and Woody Harrelson.

Regardless of whoever plays the Uncharted scoundrel, we’re sure to learn who Sony-Columbia casts as Sully soon. Production for the film is slated to begin in July 2019. (Source)

Chris to Play Hulk Hogan in Biopic

Chris Hemsworth is set to portray wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan in a biopic that reunites Todd Phillips with Scott Silver, the respective director and writer of the upcoming DC Comics movie The Joker. John Pollono (Stronger) will co-write the script with Silver.

Deals for the Hogan project are in the midst of closing with Netflix.

One of the biggest names in wrestling of all time, Hogan was a fixture on TV sets in 1980s America as part of the World Wrestling Federation who subsequently parlayed his championships-winning leg drops and star power into forays into movies and television, endorsements and video games.

Born Terry Gene Bollea, Hogan began his career in the late 1970s in the Florida wrestling circuit, and when he started in the WWF, he frequently squared off against Andre the Giant as a villainous fighter. When Vince McMahon took over the company and began expanding it into a national presence, Hogan was its face and by then a hero persona. By the end of the ’80s, he was one of the Me Decade’s key personalities, gracing magazine covers, appearing on nightly talk shows and even headlining a Saturday morning cartoon.

In the 21st century, however, Hogan’s fortunes were see-sawing as personal conflicts overtook those inside the ring. Most notably, he was embroiled in a sex tape scandal, with the wife of a friend and radio personality, including a years-long lawsuit that precipitated the end of Gawker and led to Hogan receiving tens of millions of dollars in a settlement.

The biopic will not delve into those years or attempt to encompass Hogan’s entire life. Instead, sources say it will focus on his rise and is described as an origin story of the Hulkster and Hulkamania. (Source)

Russo Brothers Discuss “Avengers: Endgame”

After unveiling the title and first teaser trailer earlier this month, directors Anthony and Joe Russo have been chatting to Empire about the massively-anticipated superhero sequel Avengers: Endgame, and how they can possibly manage to top this year’s epic Marvel blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War.

“With a lot of hard work,” said Joe. “Whether we top Infinity War or not, I don’t know. But we try to tell the best story we can with these characters. This is bringing to a close the first decade of stories. I think that alone has a dramatic power to it.”

“We’ve sat on the title, we’ve sat on the trailer, the last thing we want to do is give any clues to story structure or tone,” replied Joe when pressed for plot details, with Anthony adding: “These are characters and a story moving forward where Infinity War happened. The entire universe experienced the same fate, and has been brought together by this experience.”

Having previously revealed that the rough cut of Endgame was at the three-hour mark, Joe then went on to suggest that “there’s a high probability that this movie will clock in at around three hours. It’s a big movie with a lot of story.”

Avengers: Endgame hits theatres on August 26th, 2019. (Source)

Drew Goddard On Bringing Out Chris Hemsworth’s Dark Side For “Bad Times at the El Royale”

Drew Goddard doesn’t write for actors, but the moment he finished Bad Times at the El Royale, his story about seven people colliding in a sketchy motel, he reached out to Chris Hemsworth.

Hemsworth, who appeared in Goddard’s directorial debut Cabin in the Woods just after his first turn as Thor, agreed to play the most dangerous character in “Bad Times,” a charismatic, would-be cult leader.

The writer-director spoke to Variety about reuniting with Hemsworth, the pleasure of working with Cynthia Erivo and Lewis Pullman, and the future of his X-Force project.

How did you find Louis Pullman? He’ll be pretty new to many audiences, and he’s as surprising and impressive as [Cynthia] Erivo.
He was another one where I just had a very specific thing I was looking for. [His character, the El Royale employee] Miles is integral to the story, and we needed someone that can take the audience on a real journey, in terms of emotional performance. So it was one of those good old-fashioned casting searches. After meeting with lots and lots and lots of actors, Lewis came in and you just felt that immediately. The last time that happened, quite honestly, was when Chris Hemsworth walked in for “Cabin in the Woods.” You’re just looking for actors who inherently fit the role — and then also transcend the role. Louis had that sort of magic.

Can you just text from Chris Hemsworth now and say, “Hey, I got an idea. Do you want to talk?”
[Laughs] We have a very healthy relationship, that’s for sure. We’re very fond of one another.

Hemsworth plays a Charles Manson-type character, what interests you about a figure like that?
For me, it was all about finding something different for Chris. Chris got cast in “Thor” in the middle of [making] “Cabin in the Woods,” so I got to see this young actor just launched into the stratosphere. It’s been really fun to see how he has grown and changed, and yet, how he has also stayed exactly the same. He’s still the same wonderful, hardworking, emotional performer that I met almost a decade ago. I knew that it was time for him to do something different. I was excited to write something that would give him a chance to explore darker territory. And I think he was probably eager to get to play something that is a little left of center from the sort of stuff he usually plays. So it very much came together as we created this character of Billy Lee.

Is it fair to say that writing something for Chris was one of the primary starting points for the script?
The truth is, I don’t really think about actors when I’m writing, but every time I finish a script I look at it and the first thing I think is, “OK, who could Chris play?” When I’m writing I try to only think about the characters. But once I finished, he’s definitely one of the first people I called. I just love working with him so much.

“Bad Times at the El Royale” Critical Review

Chris’s upcoming film, Bad Times at the El Royale is slated to hit theatres this weekend. Written and directed by Drew Goddard, the film has been met with mostly mixed to positive reviews. Bad Times at the El Royale features an all-star cast of Jeff Bridges, John Hamm, Cynthia Erivo and Dakota Johnson and hits theatres on October 12th. Take a look below at what the critics are saying:

Empire Online — A beautifully staged film with everything is in its place, this is both an affectionate homage and a timely commentary, falling only slightly short of its own ambition. Classy pulp fiction.

Variety — Writer-director Drew Goddard follows up The Cabin in the Woods with an inverse experiment, an elaborate thriller where the location is everything, and the twists disappoint. The contributions of both cast and crew make “Bad Times” a worthwhile watch, even if for most, the script’s payoff isn’t enough to justify the pacing problems.

Washington PostBad Times at the El Royale certainly goes places you wouldn’t predict, but it’s not always evident why. Like the namesake hotel, which boasts a red line running through its lobby — one side the home state of Tinseltown, the other Sin City — “Bad Times at the El Royale” is a schizoid thing: terribly, terribly entertaining, and at times just a wee bit soulless.

Indie Wire — he film is a series of delicious reveals and deadly reversals, each a bit more satisfying than the last. The film only becomes more fun as you get hip to what it’s doing, with Goddard’s big cast continuing to balloon over the course of this 140-minute epic.
