Unofficial set photos have landed online of Leonardo DiCaprio as J. Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar. Obviously, this is from Hoover’s younger years as opposed to when he was older and had the face of an angry, wrinkled infant. The film will explore Hoover’s closeted homosexuality and his relationship with Clyde Toulson (played by The Social Network’s Armie Hammer).
Hit the jump to check out the set photos. J. Edgar also stars Naomi Watts, Josh Lucas, Ed Westwick, Damon Herriman, and Judi Dench.

They can bend any genre, they can hit any tone, and they’ve hit a winning streak that shows no sign of slowing down. But what will be their follow-up to True Grit? Ethan Coen tells Empire that they might be going into the horror business. When Coen was asked if they would ever do a film in the horror genre, he replied:
“Funny you should ask, yes, we’re working on a couple of scripts now, one of which it would be fair to call a full-on horror movie. Frances McDormand is the monster.”The part about McDormand may be a joke (she’s his sister-in-law), but it would be awesome to see them go into the horror genre. They’ve never shied away from the horrific, but to see them pursue a film firmly in the genre and seeing how they’ll twist it sounds like it could be incredible. Hit the jump for Coen had to say about their other potential projects.

Back in September, we got our first look at the anticipated HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce in the form of an impressive first trailer. Now HBO has released another trailer as we inch closer to the March 27th premiere. The miniseries (directed by Far from Heaven helmer Todd Haynes and based on James M. Cain’s novel) follows a proud, single mother (Winslet) struggling to earn her daughter’s love during the depression in middle-class Los Angeles. You’ll probably recognize the song from the first half of the trailer as the very same one that graced the first half of the trailer for The Fighter, but don’t take my word for it. Check out the new trailer after the jump. Mildred Pierce premieres March 27th.
