Eminem in Sutter's Southpaw...
This is in the early stages, but Southpaw has just been bought as a film for Eminem to lead which will be written by The Shield and Sons of Anarchy creator and executive producer, Kurt Sutter. The film will see a welterweight boxer who is rising through the ranks rather quickly, fighting his way to the title without much style or training and seeing his dreams fall away from him after a terrible tragedy. However he starts the fight again to try and capture the title again.

According to the story in Deadline, Sutter worked for seven years trying to get a project involving Eminem made, and it was the latest album and the connection to boxing that made it all come together.

”I love that the title refers to Marshall being a lefty, which is to boxing what a white rapper is to hip hop; dangerous, unwanted and completely unorthodox. It's a much harder road for a southpaw than a right handed boxer.”

He's off to write the script now, so don't expect anything soon, but do expect a powerful dramatic film from Sutter.

Damon in Blomkamp's Elysium...
Matt Damon is negotiating to join Neill Blomkamp's next film called Elysium according to Deadline.

Hammer Wake Wood trailer...
Here's a trailer for the Hammer Films Wake Wood which has been sitting around waiting for a release for a little while now. There's promise, but will it see the light of day? The film, and the trailer, has a few recognisable faces, see Timothy Spall in there?

Cassavetes directing John Gotti Jr. film?...
Nick Cassavetes is negotiating to direct a biographical film about John Gotti Jr. which is currently being written by Leo Rossi. The film will examine the relationship between Gotti father and son. The story comes from Variety through Collider, and it does sound an interesting fit.
