soderbergh-tatum

Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh (Erin Brockovich, Ocean’s Eleven) surprised everyone when he announced that he would be stepping away from big-screen features after 2013’s Side Effects. Recent news, however, has him coming out of retirement after spending the last few years on his work in television, like HBO’s Behind the Candelabra. Soderbergh will supposedly come back to direct his long-time friend and collaborator Channing Tatum (Magic Mike, 21 Jump Street) in a new film called Lucky Logan. No information is yet available regarding the script, and Tatum is the only confirmed cast member, although Matt Damon (The Bourne Supremacy, The Martian) was initially rumored to be starring in Tatum’s role. With a script, lead actor, and director already in place, pre-production should get underway fairly quickly, but we’ll keep you updated on further announcements.

New Coen Brothers Comedy ‘Hail Caesar!’ Opening In Theaters February 5th

The Coen Brothers are finally back on the big screen with a new comedy titled Hail Caesar!. Starring Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers, Iron Man 2), Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street, Foxcatcher), Ralph Fiennes (The Constant Gardener, Spectre), Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street, Moneyball) and Coen regulars Tilda Swinton (Burn After Reading, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men, Men In Black 3), and George Clooney (Oh Brother Where Art Thou?, Ocean’s Eleven), the film follows a Hollywood ‘fixer’ who works for Capital Records in the 1950s and must deal with the disappearance of the studio’s biggest star before an upcoming release is ruined by the schemers behind the kidnapping. The film was co-written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen (in their usual fashion), and will be their first project together since 2013’s Oscar-nominated drama Inside Llewyn Davis with Oscar Isaac (A Most Violent Year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Carey Mulligan (Drive, The Great Gatsby), although they have written several films since then, including director Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies. The trailer for Hail Caesar! is available here on MADE. Look for it in theaters this February 5th.

Director Adam McKay is more popularly known for his work on films like Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and Step-Brothers, and fans will see more of his comedic approach in the upcoming comic-adaptation of Ant-Man with Paul Rudd in the title role, but the director has more on his upcoming schedule than just a couple of outlandish comedies. This week it was announced that actors Christian Bale (The Dark Knight, Exodus: Gods and Kings), Ryan Gosling (Drive, The Ides of March), Brad Pitt (Fight Club, Ocean’s Eleven), and McKay-movie regular Steve Carell (Little Miss Sunshine, Anchorman) will be taking roles in McKay’s upcoming financial drama The Big Short. The film comes from an adaptation of the book by author Michael Lewis, which follows the collapse of the financial industry in relation to the real-estate markets and unregulated stock and bond trades. Lewis is also the author of Moneyball, which was adapted for the big screen back in 2011 by director Bennett Miller (The Cruise, Capote) and also starred Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Robin Wright. Miller also just paired up with Steve Carell in 2014 for the biographical-drama Foxcatcher, which now has three Golden Globe nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor (Carell) and Best Supporting Actor (Mark Ruffalo). Seeing as the remainder of the supporting cast for The Big Short has yet to be filled and the project has no official release date, it may be a while before we see it in theaters, but we’ll keep an eye out for more news.

Actor Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda, Ocean’s 11) has decided to set up a campaign through Indiegogo, an international fundraising site for charity, music, technology, film, and more, to raise funds for a biopic about legendary musician Miles Davis.

One of his most famous works is the revolutionary record Kind of Blue (which featured jazz pianist Bill Evans) was released in 1959 and has since received recognition for its quadruple-platinum status. Cheadle is looking to start filming in July and wants to raise a total of $325,000 in order to start the process, which will feature Cheadle as Davis and Ewan McGregor set to take a supporting role.
