First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 

Since we have a new x-men cast on the franchise, and a pretty interesting one, I thought it would be nice to have a topic dedicated to them, to discuss about them, their proyects, both past and upcoming movies, interviews, quotes about the x-men, our thoughts about the cast and all of that.

So.... here it is :woot:

New proyect for Michael:

Michael Fassbender Takes an Assassin's Creed

Variety reports that the planned movie adaptation of Ubisoft's popular video game Assassin's Creed is moving forward with Michael Fassbender attached to star in and co-produce the movie.

Originally, the Assassin's Creed movie was going to be produced in conjunction with Sony Pictures but those negotiations were put on hold and Ubisoft has decided to finance and produce the film independently through their recently-launched Ubisoft Motion Pictures (UMP) division with former EuropaCorp CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet running the show.

The original game involves a bartender named Desmond Miles, captured by a secret organization with ties to the Knight Templar who repeatedly send Miles back in time into the body of his assassin ancestors to retrieve valuable historical artifacts, the first time going back to the Crusades. Presumably, Fassbender would be playing Miles, even though that's not stated in the story.

Ubisoft Motion Pictures CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet, said about the actor:

http://comingsoon.net/nextraimages/a...assbender1.jpg

"Michael Fassbender was our first choice. Michael (Fassbender) is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor."

The various "Assassin's Creed" games have sold over 30 million units since the first game's debut in 2007 with "Assassin's Creed III" scheduled for October 30. Ubisoft has big plans to turn the games into a movie franchise, but they first have to find a writer and director, which they'll probably do before going out to studios, including Sony.

"We're open to re-discuss with the key studios once the production package is finalized," Baronnet told Variety. "Whatever the financial model, UMP will limit its risk investment." According to the story, they also will save on production costs by using some of the in-house game studios to handle visual effects for the movies.

The Variety story also mentions that the company wants to adapt "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell" and "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon" into films and are developing an animated television series based on the "Raving Rabbids" for Nickelodeon.

A lot of them are pretty busy and I just hope their movies will help the 2014 X-Men movie to get more viewers especially with Jennifer Lawrence's appearance in the Hunger Games movies.

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
Id like one of the xteam boys to get more recognition, with a role in another franchise or so, like Jennifer.

Fassbender and Jennifer are great actors, definetly, but Id love to see one "x-men" to end being famous too

like happened with Hugh and Halle from the first trilogy.

Isnt Beast in Jack And The Giant Killer and Mad Max? Most of the crew have pretty solid careers imo.

Rose has a pretty solid resume.

Angamb 07-09-2012 03:25 PM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
all have some proyects for the next years, but none in the same level as Michael and Jennifer.

We know this is a hard industry, and only a few actors get worldwide recognition and fame. It just would be cool to have some more First Class actors becoming Stars in the near future.

def28 07-09-2012 03:27 PM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
Mad MAx and JAck and The Giant killer are pretty big films imo.

They would need Oscar worthy or Hunger Games level stuff to get on Fassbender or Lawerence terms.

yes, Im glad nicholas is on those films, he is really talented actor, I think. So I hope big things come for him soon.

yeah. Jennifer's push started after Winters bone, which gave her the Oscar nom.

And Michael has been doing some great movies in the latest years that have put him in the place he is right now.

He's part of two new franchise already, with X-men and Prometheus, and these two more that new proyect will make him even bigger in the next years.

Lets hope some of the other actors from FC get bigger chances too.

Rose Bryne was in Bridesmaids last year and the movie got more money in the box-office than First Class.

Zoe Kravitz will be in Will Smith's movie After Earth. While January Jones will continue her work on Mad Men.

Angamb 07-10-2012 04:42 AM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
January seems to be the one that doesnt seem to build a movie career at all.

something tells me she doesnt care too much about movies.... Im sure she has had pretty decent offers after Mad Men first seasons, but she hasnt done much in the latest two years or so

def28 07-10-2012 04:44 AM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
Could be cause she had a kid.

Angamb 07-10-2012 04:51 AM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
that was only a few months back.

Im talking about her movie carreer since the Mad men first season.

def28 07-10-2012 05:07 AM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
I see. I dont really know , I think some actors wanna a break after the season stops. Might have been because Madmen just started, She had a film in 2009 so she probably filmed in 2008 and then she had a few action films and FC shooting in 2010. One or two could have been delayed and shot before cause three films and Madmen would have been tough to shoot in a year.

Angamb 07-10-2012 05:18 AM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
it could be both cases too.

she probably wanted those breaks, and at the same time maybe she hadnt great movie scripts or wasnt interested about the offers to date at all.

in any case, as long as she has a better role as Emma next time, Im fine, he.

Agreed :up:

Hope to see Caleb in some more flicks, surprised hes not in more comedies. I Keep forgetting he was in Friday Night Lights.

Angamb 07-10-2012 06:14 AM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
he was??? but the series or the movie?

I have seen Contraband, where Ben Foster appears too. I think Caleb has much potential, from what I've seen. He has an unique look that could bring him interesting and different roles. I'll be checking his steps since now.

def28 07-10-2012 06:22 AM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
He was in the series. He played the drummer in Landrys band. Hows Contraband? Worth checking out?

Angamb 07-10-2012 06:37 AM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
I liked it.

It has a pretty decent cast too. Loved to see Ben and Caleb on the same movie :D

James has also a stylish "cops and thieves" British thriller to be released this year, "Welcome to the Punch".

I'm excited with his next projects; more than with First Class, dare I say. I'm really worried about Charles' arc in Second Class. More like pessimist, actually. :o

Cool, Ill check it out. Fosters a solid actor, if he had the chance it would be awesome to see him go evil as Archangel. I think he could get intense in that role.

Yeah Him and Mark Strong should be a good duo in that flick.

Im sure Mcavoy will have just as strong a presence in FC2 as he did in FC.

Im sure he'll have a good role.

in any case, you should be more than happy about your fave actor having one of the lead roles of this new series, not everyone can say the same about the other characters :woot:

Yeah, I know...but I wouldn't expect less, since Charles and Erik are supposed to be the main characters in the new series anyway.

What worries me is Second Class turning out to be a more action-oriented movie than FC, and Charles isn't exactly an action-oriented character. And that his struggles to adapt to his new condition - the one thing I really wanted to see the character go through - will be more like forgotten. We shall see. :dry:

Meanwhile, James has just started shooting The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His/Hers (yeah, they'll make two films) in NY. First pictures, with CiarŠn Hinds: http://www.rexfeatures.com/set/1794082

Angamb 07-10-2012 10:05 AM

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
Even if the movie has more action (really expected), Charles will be the main voice of the X-men, with his philosophy and his new "proffesor" side, that they will have to adress, after first class end.

He will be the mentor of the x-men and maybe the first students on the school, so that along with his new scenes with Erik will be pretty decent for his role on the sequel.

oh, and I want to see his struggles too, lets hope Matthew adress it on one scene, at least. we'll see what happens in 2 years :D

Re: First Class ACTORS Thread [new proyects, interviews, quotes...]
 
Flifth looks interesting, I haven't read the book it's based on but from what I gathered James' character in it is an, er, absolutely filthy S.O.B. Looks like a gutsy choice of role.

I also loooove Jessica Chastain, so a double film with her and James sounds good :)

I know nothing about Assassin's Creed apart from the fact that my brother was quite obsessed with playing it for a time, but I'm a sucker for medieval stuff so hopefully it turns out to be decent. There really hasn't been many decent historical (or quasi-historical) films lately.

I really look forward to the FC sequel, but I honestly hope that Fassbender and McAvoy do a film together outside of X-Men, their chemistry is just too good not to use over and over again.
