Christian Bale, Exodus
Filmmaker Ridley Scott is 76 years old, but you wouldn’t know it from his prodigious output. He’s got 22 features under his belt, and between 2000-2014, he’ll have directed twelve feature-length projects (that’s 1.16 films a year if you wanna get nerdy about it). “Filmmaking for him must be like breathing.” Joel Edgerton told Entertainment Weekly about his “Exodus: Gods And Kings” director. “He’s got all the passion of a young filmmaker,” the lead actor Christian Bale said. “He’s not jaded.”

Exodus: Gods and Kings
Bible movies, they’re the hottest thing in Hollywood right now. Tinseltown has figured out—though many of them haven’t even come out yet—that Bible stories are public domain and therefore it's a “franchise” they can exploit.

Felony
Unlike his “Warrior” co-star Tom Hardy, Australian actor Joel Edgerton has stuck to being part of smaller films and taking smaller roles like his outing as a member of Seal Team Six in “Zero Dark Thirty” – Baz Luhrmann’s gaudy adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” notwithstanding. Edgerton’s latest is the Australian film “Felony” which, in addition to starring in, he both wrote and produced. The film’s first trailer and poster have both arrived online for your keen minds to investigate.

Exodus: Gods & Kings
"I guess I didn't pay attention in Sunday School," Ridley Scott told Entertainment Weekly recently about the depth of the story he'll explore in "Exodus: Gods And Kings." "There was so much I had forgotten. It's a marvelous human story about change. There are massive questions here. You treat it with great respect."

Benedict Cumberbatch
Ok, here's a pairing you don't see everyday. While Johnny Depp and Guy Pearce together and side-by-side in the Whitey Bulger gangster pic "Black Mass" would have been a terrific paring, "The Rover" star has had to drop out for scheduling reasons. Alas, nothing to fear here Cross Creek Productions has found a more than viable replacement with in-demand actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

Often in Hollywood, it's a game of massaging egos versus making decisions that are smart for the bottom line, and Warner Bros. had some tough decisions to make this week. The studio was given the opportunity to come aboard and co-finance "Black Mass," the Johnny Depp-starring flick based on the life of notorious gangster Whitey Bulger. But in doing so they had to kibosh a similar project by one of their golden boys.

Felony Joel Edgerton
Malcolm Toohey is a textbook example of a good cop, as we see in the opening of "Felony," written by and starring Joel Edgerton. Toohey is the kind of police officer that doesn't hesitate to charge into a dangerous situation, and by the end of the early moments of the film, his actions find him taking two shots to his bulletproof vest protected chest, all in the name of bringing down a bit player in a much bigger criminal ring. It's the kind of bravery that has earned him the respect of his colleagues. Meanwhile, on the homefront, with a beautiful wife and two young kids, things couldn't look better. But one bad decision, followed by a heat-of-the-moment lie, is all it takes for Malcolm's life to potentially unravel around him. What begins with so much promise in "Felony" is undone by a story that prefers sensationalist melodrama over tackling the much more interesting ethical dilemmas it brings up for its characters.

Felony Joel Edgerton
While some projects die on the vine and enter the hallowed "what if" halls of legendary projects that never got made, some eventually come creaking back to life. The latest lucky one to defy the odds is "Shantaram," a former Johnny Depp-led project that Warner Bros. is reviving. And while Depp has stepped back in the producers chair for his Inifinitum Nihil production shingle, he has handpicked a new lead: Aussie Joel Edgerton whose stock in Hollywood just keeps rising and rising.
