The director of Harry Styles‘s first-ever film is opening up about why he was cast.
The 23-year-old “Sign of the Times” singer had to audition for Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan says, and he actually beat a lot of other guys for the role.
“When we put the cast together, we had some established names: Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy,” Christopher told Los Angeles Times. “But for the guys on the beach, we really wanted young unknowns. He’s not that unknown, but he’d never done anything as an actor before. So he auditioned. I auditioned literally thousands of young men with different combinations of young men. And he had it.”
Mark your calendars – Dunkirk hits theaters on July 21.
There’s an old adage that says never to break a good thing up — which is why we’re so excited that Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller are teaming back up for another movie!
The two actors, who have starring in Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant and Spectacular Now together, are reuniting for a new flick.
The project is called Adrift and is based on a true story of “a woman who sets off on a sailing trip to Tahiti with her fiance. But after a massive storm, the woman finds herself alone at sea with her boat in ruins.”
According to THR, the story, which toggles between the couple’s past courtship and the perilous present, follows her attempts to save herself and the man she loves on a 1,500-mile journey to Hawaii.
Pixar has paid tribute to Don after his passing on Thursday, with a touching post on social media from Toy Story‘s director John Lasseter.
“Don Rickles was a comic genius, and here at Pixar we were honored to also call him a friend. The wit, personality and incredible timing he brought to Mr. Potato Head lit up the character and made him an essential part of the Toy Story ensemble.”
“Even though Mr. Potato Head’s facial features fell off in every Toy Story movie, his heart never left him—that was because of Don. We will miss him tremendously.”
Mr. Potato Head may still appear in Toy Story 4, which is expected to debut in 2019.
We knew that Ryan McCartan was working on something — and it turns out that this ‘something’ is even cooler than we imagined.
The former Liv and Maddie star made the big announcement of his new movie project, called The Max Gerson Film Project for now, that he’ll be producing and starring in.
“I feel like cancer touches everyone’s lives in some way. So if you have had any friends, family or loved ones that are struggling or have struggled [with cancer], we would love to have you on board in this journey with us.”
