Warner Bros. Takes 'The Road Home' for Leo DiCaprio & Scott Cooper

Though Leonardo DiCaprio hasn't starred in a film from Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper, the two have already collaborated on the Christian Bale led drama Out of the Furnace, which the actor produced through his Appian Way production banner along with Scott Free. Now the two will have the chance to make a film together as director and actor as Deadline reports Warner Bros. has picked up the rights Michael Armour's forthcoming novel The Road Home for Cooper to write, direct and produce with DiCaprio potentially taking the lead role and also producing. DiCaprio has been quite busy as a producer as of late. Read more.

Universal Plotting 'Identity Thief' Sequel, More Bourne & 'Snow White'

After hearing the mostly disappointing news that Universal is considering a sequel to the horror hit Mama, today comes word that the studio is thinking about more sequels. It's still early for a lot of these projects, and no official plans are in order just yet, but Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson talked about a future for some of Universal's more successful properties, even if they weren't critical successes. The projects include the gestating sequel to last year's Snow White and the Huntsman, more for the universe expanded in The Bourne Legacy, and a sequel to the R-rated comedy Identity Thief.  Read More.

Original 'Dragon Tattoo' Director Niels Arden Oprev Taking 'Flatliners'

Back in 2011, we learned that Source Code writer Ben Ripley was working on a remake of the 1990 thriller Flatliners. The story follows five medical students (Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt) who conduct experiments to stop their heart to simulate a temporary death, and see if there's anything beyond our own mortality. But after returning to life, the group is visited by physical manifestations of their childhood sins and it's not clear if this is real or just a hallucination. Now Bloody Disgusting reports that Niels Arden Oplev, the director of next month's Dead Man Down, is at the helm. Read More.

Tom Hardy Gets Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in 'Samarkland' Drama

After his turns in The Dark Knight Rises, This Means War and Lawless last year, Tom Hardy is not slowing down. In fact, the actor has only become more busy. As of now, Hardy is linked to a real-time thriller called Locke, a film with Daniel Espinosa called Child 44, an adaptation of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell video game, a period drama about scaling Mount Everest, and a passion project called Animal Rescue. Now Deadline has word Hardy is working with Solar Pictures to develop and star in Samarkand, a drama directed by Greg Williams who wrote the script with brother Olly Williams (not the "Family Guy" character).

Juliette Binoche to Join Gareth Edwards' New 'Godzilla' at Legendary

Slowly but surely, the cast for Gareth Edwards' reboot of Godzilla set up at Legendary Entertainment is filling out. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston were all said to be in talks for various roles (though specifics are still unavailable), and now Variety reports French actress Juliette Binoche, who was recently seen in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, is taking an unknown role. Legendary and Warner Bros. are keeping this film under tight wraps, even after a supposed rewrite from Frank Darabont, so it's hard to get excited for anything other than the return of the giant monster.
