First Poster For Lee Daniels' The Paperboy Goes Retro
I love a good retro poster. While most studios are content producing identical posters over and over again (floating heads, blue and orange contrast, etc.), films that reach back to when movie posters were actually an artform are much appreciated. Sadly they're few and far between, but today the folks behind Lee Daniels' next film have delivered a late-Christmas/early-New Year's present for us.

Daniels obviously believes in Oyelowo’s talent. At one point they were set to make the Civil Rights drama Selma together, with Daniels boldly casting Oyelowo in the role of Matin Luther King Jr. Though that project stalled (temporarily, Deadline predicts), it’s good to see Daniels found another juicy role for this versatile, yet still unknown actor.

Nicole Kidman Could Replace Sofia Vergara In Lee Daniels's Next Film, The Paperboy
The character Vergara was set for and that Kidman might step into is a "woman with a dark side," writing letters to men on death row, one of whom I assume is the accused murderer. Kidman is a pretty huge transition from Vergara, but given that the entire film seems kind of mysterious right now
