With news of a big screen "Entourage" movie and that "Annie" remake, it might be easy to get cynical and disheartened about Hollywood. But as a recent movie has taught us, there's always a shot at a silver lining, and today it comes in the form of Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace. The pair have already signed up to star in the Dennis Lehane adaptation "Animal Rescue," and at the time they were also considering the Cold War era flick "Child 44." Well it looks like the allure of working together and the material were too good to resist, because what the hell, they're going to do that movie too.

So, this morning a blurry image went around the interwebs of Tom Hardy looking particularly dusty and scruffy, with some claiming it to be the first look (as rough as it is) of the actor in "Mad Max: Fury Road." Well....it is.

Even though they may not have worked together yet on the big screen, Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace seem to already be good pals. The pair were on the cover of Blag magazine (see above), did some promo for it as well this year and seemed to have a blast (just do some Google searches). And now, we may see two of our favorite folks working together, in a very promising project.

Let the speculatin' begin (again). During the entire press run for Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises," the drum beat played by everyone around the picture, from the director through each member of the cast, was that it was the end. There would be no fourth movie. Christian Bale said he wouldn't suit up again (unless Nolan wanted him to) and even with Joseph Gordon-Levitt revealed to be Robin/the new Batman, the actor insisted that there was no need for any spinoffs. Never say never, we suppose...there may be something transpiring....

Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" subverted the usual superhero movie expectations, providing an experience rooted in character that still played into the grand myth of Batman. One of the many ways in which Nolan and co. turned things on their head was featuring the grand battle between Batman the villain Bane in the first third of the movie. And then having him lose. While they square off again later in the movie, this is in many ways the piece de resistance and it's not a surprise that getting it right took some work.

It's no surprise that "Mystic River," "Gone Baby Gone" and "Shutter Island" scribe Dennis Lehane has been able to attract top talent for his adaptation of his own short story "Animal Rescue." David Cronenberg and more recently, "Limitless" helmer Neil Burger came aboard, and with the latter now focused on the YA franchise "Divergent," a pretty exciting new name has stepped in.

Hollywood studios have a history of mounting competing projects that cover similar terrain -- think “Deep Impact” and “Armageddon,” or the biopics “Capote” and “Infamous” -- but it’s rare that a studio would be developing two similar projects in-house, and that’s exactly what Warner Bros. is doing. A couple of months ago we heard word that Tom Hardy, Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio would be collaborating on a “‘Traffic’-like take on poaching and illegal animal smuggling” based on an idea Hardy came up with, but now the trio is also collaborating on a second animal smuggling and poaching film.
