James McAvoy is in talks to star in the forthcoming Julian Assange biopic.
The 'X-Men: First Class' actor is reportedly up for the role of the WikiLeaks founder's right-hand man Daniel Domscheit-Berg in the film opposite Benedict Cumberbatch as the controversial journalist, Variety reports.
The script for the film - which is being directed by 'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' helmsman Bill Condon - is partially based on Daniel's book 'Inside WikiLeaks: My Time With Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website'.
Josh Singer's script is also partially adapted from David Leigh and Luke Harding's book 'WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy'.
'RoboCop' actor Joel Kinnaman was previously linked with the role of Daniel, while Jeremy Renner has expressed a wish to portray Assange.
The DreamWorks-produced film is expected to go into production next year.
Assange is wanted in Sweden to face questioning over a sexual assault investigation.
He has been living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since June 2012.
British officials say he will be arrested if he steps out of the building.

‘Frankenstein’ Gets a New Title and Official Synopsis

Jun 18 2014 8:17am CDT | Source: Screen Rant

Premiere Of Summit Entertainment's "Push" - Arrivals
As one of the long-reigning kings of the horror genre – both in literature and film – Frankenstein is a story that has been retold countless times already and will no doubt continue to get adaptations, reboots and sequels a long way into the future. This year’s entry, Stuart Beattie’s I, Frankenstein, failed to make much of a mark and performed pretty dismally at the box office, but next year director Paul Mc ...

FILTH Review

May 30 2014 1:05pm CDT | Source: Collider

Apple Store Soho Presents: Meet The Filmmakers: James McAvoy And Jon S. Baird - "Filth"
Addiction can be used as a way to mask a deeper pain.  The addict can disappear into a drug-induced haze, and find a brief reprieve before real life comes crashing back in, and there's a need for a bigger fix.  Filth follows suit, but instead of using drugs to mask pain, it uses drugs to mask a shallow story and weak jokes.  Writer-director Jon S. Baird has plenty of tricks: breaking the fourth wall, throwing up graphics, frenetic cinematography, etc.  He also has a great cast w ...
