BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Anthony Michael Hall is an actor who has undergone a pretty impressive transformation over the course of his career. While he started out as a teen playing geeks and nerds in John Hughes movies, as he aged he grew to a strong size and is now almost unrecognizable to his fans from the 80s. Also, unlike some of his Brat Pack cohorts, he has kept his acting career going, taking roles in movies like The Dark Knight...
In an unexpected casting move, Miller chose funny man Steve Carell to play the homicidal heir, and now Sienna Miller will be joining the cast. She's slated to play wife to the ill-fated Olympian who will be portrayed by everyone's favorite Hulk, Mark Ruffalo. Channing Tatum, who co-starred with Miller in her last noteworthy film appearance G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra, is also on board, lined up to play Schultz's brother.
Things are currently looking really good for Mark Ruffalo. In addition to getting extremely positive early reviews for his performance as Bruce Banner/The Hulk in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, he’s just landed a role in the next film from Academy Award-nominated director Bennett Miller.
Channing Tatum has signed on to play Schultz, who was close friends with du Pont and was trying to help the man get his life in order when he was murdered for his efforts. Schultz was a seven-time world and Olympic wrestling champion. He left behind a wife and two children when he was murdered. As for du Pont, he was jailed for his crime and died in prison in 2010
Prepare to hear the name "Bennett Miller" at least once a week for the rest of the year. Thanks to the critical and box office success of Moneyball, Miller has established himself as an early, strong contender for this year's Oscar race. But the filmmaker isn't just bathing in the glow of victory; he's already in pre-production for his next project and a report suggests that he has found his new leading man.
