Exclusive : Todd Field’s Creed shoots for Spring 2020 start

The film was originally due to shoot in 2013

Here’s one to look out for at the Oscars in a couple of years.

Todd Field’s long-gestating “The Creed of Violence” is back on – some five years since the adaptation of Boston Teran’s novel lured names like Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale to headline.

Moviehole can confirm that the project (which I hear may be looking for a new title) is currently casting and will be before the cameras in Spring 2020- which gives the production time to reignite the interest of the A-listers that were originally set and find their lead (See below).

Set in 1910 during the Mexican Revolution, Teran’s novel tells of an estranged father-son out to stop smugglers. The leads are small-time assassin Rawbone and John Lourdes, a young Bureau of Investigation agent. The two are forced to work together to infiltrate the Mexican criminal underground, encountering thieves, smugglers and professional killers.  Now, for the role of the younger Lourdes, Field wants to cast a fresh face – a newcomer in the 20-24 age bracket. I’m guessing a name will play Rawbone.

“Hacksaw Ridge” and “Everest” producer Brian Oliver produces through his New Republic Pictures. Oliver launched his new production company at Cannes last year, where it was reported the outfit had a first-look deal with Paramount.

This will be the third feature for Field, who made a name for himself as a filmmaker with the acclaimed 2001 drama “In the Bedroom” and later, “Little Children” (2006). Yep, he’s paused between drinks here.. and then some. If this latest is anything like the earlier two, expect to be clapping those hands hard when it’s end credits roll.

Exclusive : The Flash’s Harrison Wells as an Aussie?

Tom Cavanagh – the scene-stealing, dynamite performer who plays many incarnations of Dr Harrison Wells on TV’s “The Flash” – tells Moviehole that this season’s version of Wells was nearly an Australian.

“He was almost an Aussie. We played with that idea. I love Australia and I’d love to do that version. We ended up going with something different — but we were very close to making him Australian. I think it’s possible a future version will indeed be from Down Under.”

Cavanagh, who said a big appeal for him in doing the show is playing the many versions of Wells each season, said the version of the character we’ll see this year isn’t someone we’ve seen before.

“It’s a new character. You’re going to really, really dig it.”

“The Flash” returns for its 6th season on The CW in October.

Update! : It was revealed the following day  – at Comic-Con – that Routh will be playing the ‘Kingdom Come’ version of Superman.

 

One of our favourite supermen is inheriting his ‘S’ again.

As reported yesterday, the upcoming Arrowverse crossover will see Brandon Routh – ‘Superman’ in “Superman Returns” (2006) – reprise the Man of Steel for ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths”, which kicks off in December

Speaking to Routh last night, the top question on the ‘must ask’ deck was “are you you reprising the same Superman from Superman Returns!”

“No, he’s not the same Superman  (from the film)”, Routh tells Moviehole. “He’s a different version.. but there are some similarities.”

Routh plays Ray Palmer on The CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow”. We can only assume it’s Palmer who dons the Superman suit on an alternative Earth. Guess we’ll find out..

Exclusive : Paws for news on another Catwoman contender

Plus Vanessa Kirby also said to be in contention!

Vanessa Kirby, the leggy, versatile Brit that’s helped fill out the credits blocks on such films as “Mission Impossible : Fallout” and “Hobbs & Shaw”, is in contention to play Gotham’s meowing marauder, Catwoman in “The Batman”.

The news hails from the reliable (they were the first on the scene with Robert Pattinson’s anointment as Batman – and I wish they’d gotten more credit where it was due for that one), amiable gang at Geeks Worldwide, just as we’re hearing another name-  Florence Pugh.

Like Kirby, another versatile Brit.

While the “Fighting with my Family” scene-stealer is high on WB’s wish list for Selina Kyle, her involvement in Marvel’s “Black Widow” – she plays the new lass being primed for the ‘Black Widow’ moniker, so it’s a big role and one that will likely require reprising in the years to come -could prove a problem. While it does happen, appearing in both a DC and Marvel franchise around the same time isn’t usually the norm… if only because the studio’s don’t care to mix commodities. Still, she remains an interest.

The Purgh tip is solid, and from a good tipster (last tip from this cat turned out to be 100% accurate), but with more and more actresses  said to be meeting with the studio about the part (Vanessa Hudgens is also said to be in contention), could that “Black Widow” commitment be hurting her chances to snag the feline tail?

Interestingly enough, Kirby is slightly older than the other actresses said to be in the mix – so it could be that casting has decided to go for a Catwoman of similar age to their Batman (Pattinson).

Vanessa Kirby

Kirby, 31, would be the first actress to play live-action Ms Kyle since Anne Hathaway’s take in “The Dark Knight Rises”. Director Matt Reeves has promised us a ‘rogue’s gallery’ of villains in the film – and he’s not fibbing, with The Riddler, The Penguin and Two-Face also reportedly in the flick.

The film, set for a June 2021 release, kicks off principal photography early in the New Year.
