And I think it’s gonna to be a long long time… till we have another movie of this kind.
The new “Robin Hood” is grittier than ever and is catching the attention of many in Hollywood!
Taron Egerton soars as the English ski jumping legend.
If you’re like me, you have two great loves in life: ski jumping and Christopher Walken. And when you find out that there’s going to be a movie with Christopher Walken about ski jumping, you can sure bet that the excitement is extraordinary.
That’s what Eddie the Eagle is going to be about- a British American sports comedy with Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, and Christopher Walken, about the 1980s Olympic ski jumper Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards. Directed by Dexter Fletcher and produced by Matthew Vaughn, Adam Bohling, David Reid, Rupert Maconick, and Valerie Van Galder, the film started shooting from March 9 to May 3 2015 at Pinewood Studios, London, and Germany.
Eddie the Eagle was the first ski jumper from Britain to participate in the Olympics. In Calgary of 1988, he lost both his competitions, but his story is inspiration because of the people involved. Jackman and Walken will play fictional characters in the film based on true people in Edwards’ life. Jackman will be Edward’s main coach, Bronson Peary, and Walken will be the mentor to both Edwards and Peary, Warren Sharp. The idea to make their characters fictional was because Edwards had numerous coaches in both Britain and in the United States and so the filmmakers thought it would be less confusing and more personal to go along the one coach route.
The film is set to come out April 29, 2016, and it will detail Edwards’ practice before the actual Olympic games, detailing how he had no funding, not even a budget to buy actual prescription goggles so he ended up wearing glasses under his goggles which made seeing a near impossibility.
Nope, not the two part 1987 film, but a new biopic following the key players of the Ponzi scheme. The Billionaires Boys Club (or shortened to BBC) was an investment club started by Joseph Henry Gamsky, aka, Joe Hunt, in which BBC was originally the restaurant that Hunt dined at, the Bombay Bicycle Club. The club ended up getting the name after Hunt attracted sons from rich families after graduating from the Harvard School for Boys, and it soon turned into a Ponzi scheme where Hunt murdered two people after a con man, Ron Levin, gets involved with the scheme.
Kevin Spacey, Ansel Elgort, Emma Roberts, and Taron Egerton are all set to star in the newest version of Billionaires Boys Club, with Spacey portraying Ron Levin, Elgort playing Joe Hunt, Roberts playing Hunt’s love interest Sydney, and Egerton playing Dean Karny, a tennis professional who was also involved in the entire Ponzi scheme. James Cox, who previously directed Wonderland, is set to direct the script he also co-wrote with Captain Mauzner (who also worked on Wonderland).
The film will be produced by Holly Wiersma, Cassian Elwes, Tim Zajaros, and Chris Lemole, with Lemole and Zajaros acting as executive producers. Also executive producing include Crystal Lourd, Jere Hausfater, and Logan Levy, while the film is being financed by Armory Films.
