News fresh from the AFM ticker tape brings word of the casting of Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (The Guilty, Prisoners, Source Code, Jarhead) for The Gentlemen helmer Guy Ritchie’s latest action-thriller, The Interpreter. Filming is set to commence on January 10, 2022, on location in Spain, with Ritchie directing from a script he co-wrote with Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies.
How’s this for ambitious? Legendary filmmaker John Woo is readying a Hollywood comeback with Silent Night, a literally dialogue-free action thriller starring Joel Kinnaman (The Suicide Squad). Deadline‘s AFM-attentive Mike Fleming Jr. broke the news and revealed the following:
Josh Lucas (Ford v Ferrari, The Forever Purge) is set to star in The Black Demon, from director Adrian Grunberg (Rambo: Last Blood, Get the Gringo). Lucas will star from a script by Boise Esquerra (Austin Film Festival nominated “Blackwater”), with cameras set to roll in December 2021 on location in the Dominican Republic.
One of the best gifts to have ever come from the first season of hit series, Gangs Of London, was seeing actor Sope Dìrísù take the mantle as an undercover cop weaving his way into the violent and brutal UK underworld opposite lead actor Joe Cole. It’s a milestone performance that I look forward to spotting in season two as Dìrísù keeps up the habit, and that interest now extends even further in the wake of Tom Grater’s latest Deadline exclusive on revenge thriller, Uncle.
