Plus First-Look Photos Of Evan Rachel Wood In 'A Case Of You,' & Jennifer Connelly In 'Writers'
Hope you rested your eyeballs over Memorial Day weekend, because a whole batch of new images have arrived to give you a peek at what's hitting the big and small screen in the next little while.
The first image of Kevin Spacey in the David Fincher-produced and -directed Netflix series “House Of Cards” has arrived. The still shows Spacey and Robin Wright as the ruthless and ambitious couple at the heart of the series. Spacey says that the show, based on a revered 1990 BBC drama, “is about a wily, murderous politician worming his way to the White House” and warns that "it ain't your Daddy's 'West Wing.' " The series doesn’t hit Netflix until sometime next year, but with a supporting cast that includes Kristin Connolly, Kate Mara and Corey Stoll, we can't wait to see what this will deliver. [
Despite the disapproval of Jimi Hendrix’s estate, filming has already begun in Ireland on the biopic “All Is By My Side.” Thanks to Shadow and Act (via Gigwise), we have our first look at Andre 3000 on set and in costume as the legendary guitarist. The long-brewing project, penned and directed by John Ridley (“Three Kings” and “U-Turn”), will essentially cover Hendrix’s breakthrough period from 1966 to 1967.
Justin Long is making his screenwriting debut with the rom-com “A Case Of You,” a film he co-wrote with his brother Christian and Keir O’Donnell. Long stars opposite Evan Rachel Wood, as a writer who embellishes his profile in order to meet a girl online, only to have to try to live up to the high standards he’s set for himself in real life when she begins to fall for him. Peter Dinklage, Sam Rockwell, Vince Vaughn, Busy Phillips, Sienna Miller and Brendan Fraser round out the cast. [
Wes Bentley, last seen with awesome facial hair in “The Hunger Games,” is starring in the indie drama “3 Nights in the Desert.” He’s playing an unhinged musician, partly inspired by prolific songwriter Jack White, that reunites for a weekend with his former bandmates, played by Amber Tamblyn (“127 Hours”) and Vincent Piazza (“Boardwalk Empire”). The image from EW sees Bentley sporting a much more conservative beard with flannel opposite a clean-cut Piazza. There is no release date yet. [
