First Look at 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Now in Production

Shooting is underway! Disney has released an official press release and first look set photo from Marvel Studios' upcoming sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, perfectly timed almost one month before Iron Man 3 kicks off this year's summer movie season. The first look photo only shows Chris Evans returning as Cap standing on the set (the objects to each side of him are lighting stands and reflectors, not props) with the iconic shield strapped to his back, standing in front of the other iconic S.H.I.E.L.D. image. This might be right before one of the scenes in the concept art recently posted, but nonetheless, it's exciting knowing production is underway on this sequel - especially with the cast and crew they've landed this time.

Just this past February, we learned that Die Hard 2 and Cliffhanger director Renny Harlin was working on Hercules 3D, his own project about the mythological Greek hero set up at Nu Image and Millennium, which will likely end up competing with Brett Ratner's Hercules project starring Dwayne Johnson and currently slated for release in the summer of 2014. Production is supposed to begin this May in Bulgaria, and now Harlin finally has a lead for his film as Heat Vision reports The Twilight Sagastar Kellan Lutz will play the title hero in the film that puts a little bit of romance at the heart of the familiar story. Read more.
Are Neeson & Harrelson the 'Highwaymen' Who Killed Bonnie & Clyde?

Here's an interesting development. While a new take on the story of Bonnie & Clyde has been developing since 2011, and Emile Hirsch is slated to star in a miniseries about the infamous couple for The History Channel and Lifetime, The Blind Side director John Lee Hancock has an interesting approach to the story we haven't yet heard of. Deadline has word that Media Rights Capital and Universal Pictures have just made a deal to co-finance Highwaymen, a drama that will focus on the Texas Rangers that hunted down the bank robbing duo and eventually gunned them down in a blaze of glory. But who will play them? Read on!

Despite landing some fresh blood in the form of Matthew McConaughey for the new sci-fi film Interstellar, director Christopher Nolan will have at least one familiar face from his filmography. Deadline has word that The Dark Knight Rises star Anne Hathaway is currently finalizing a deal to star in the film with Nolan directing a script written by his brother and The Dark Knight trilogy collaborator Jonathan Nolan. Unfortunately, details are still just as sparse as before with most of the information on the project coming from vague details that were around when Steven Spielberg was going to direct the project. Read more.
