The latest from Darren Aronofsky, mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence arrives in theaters this week. But it’s not the only Lawrence movie coming soon.
Early next year comes a movie titled Red Sparrow, which stars Lawrence as a ballerina who, after a serious injury, ends up in a school which trains its students to use their bodies and minds as weapons. It’s based on author Jason Matthews‘ book of the same name.
20th Century Fox has released an official trailer for the movie, which can be found below along with a full description.
20th Century Fox has released a special “A New Year” promo for the upcoming psychological thriller A Cure for Wellness.
The movie is directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (plus two Pirates sequels), The Ring), and stars Dane DeHaan as a man sent to pick up the CEO of the company he works for at a wellness center that turns out to be not at all what it first seems.
The Lone Ranger Director: Gore Verbinski
Screenwriter(s): Justin Haythe, Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio
Cast: Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 149 Minutes
Release Date: June 28, 2013
Directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), The Lone Ranger stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as a masked man of the law who, with Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp), fights greed and corruption in the American Old West.
Produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films, and based on the 1930s radio serial, Verbinski’s adaptation of The Lone Ranger marks the first theatrical film featuring the character in over 30 years. Written by Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road) and Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, the duo behind the Pirates of the Caribbean series, The Lone Ranger is a big-budget ($250 million) western that serves as an origin story to one of America’s classic pop culture icons.
Since it was reported that a new feature film adaptation of The Lone Ranger was on the way with Johnny Depp starring as Tonto, we have not heard anything else that would indicate forward progress. This is rather surprising, considering how long the Ranger has been around, how popular he is as a character, and the star-power of Depp. Not to mention the scale and box office numbers that any movie produced by Jerry Bruckheimer can bring to the table, as this movie is.
Now comes word that a screenwriter is now in sights to pen the script for the movie. Justin Haythe, who recently handled the adaptation of Oscar-nominated Revolutionary Road, is currently in talks to take on the job. Haythe also wrote the script for The Clearing, which starred Helen Mirren and Robert Redford, as well as Jekyll, the new film based on the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde that has Keanu Reeves currently attached to star and is planned for a 2011 release.
