New Images from George Clooney’s THE IDES OF MARCH

A batch of new images from George Clooney’s next directorial project The Ides of March have hit the web. The political drama focuses on the backdoor politics of a presidential primary campaign and boasts a stellar cast that includes Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei, Paul Giamatti and Evan Rachel Wood. We brought you one new image from the film this morning, but another batch of images has popped up giving us a good look at Clooney as the film’s presidential candidate, with Gosling taking on the role of Clooney’s press secretary.
The pedigree of the cast, combined with Clooney taking on directing and scripting (alongside co-writer Grant Heslov) duties, put this film at the top of my most anticipated releases this year. Audiences will get their first look at The Ides of March when it premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, with a public release set for October 7th. Hit the jump to check out the images and yearn for October.
Robert Zemeckis in Talks to Direct HERE THERE BE MONSTERS
by Matt Goldberg Posted: July 26th, 2011
Now that he’s moved off his motion-capture kick, director Robert Zemeckis is headed back to live-action films. His next film will be the drama Flight starring Denzel Washington, and Zemeckis has also been in talks to direct the time-travel flicks Timeless and Replay along with a 3D adaptation of the 1966 Mattel action figure Major Matt Mason starring Tom Hanks. Now Zemeckis is circling yet another picture as The Wrap reports that the Oscar-winning director is in talks to helm Here There Be Monsters.
Brian Hegleland (Robin Hood) wrote the screenplay which imagines that real-life Revolutionary War naval hero John Paul Jones fought sea monsters. Back in April, we reported that the plot “focuses on a former British naval officer (presumably Jones) who’s hired to investigate the disappearance of a number of merchant ships. Once there, he and his crew encounter a sea serpent (naturally) and must battle the monster in order to get out alive.” I imagine the script leaves out the parts about Jones’ early career working on slaving ships or how in 1770 he flogged one his sailors to death. That’s not heroic at all. http://collider.com/robert-zemeckis-here-there-be-monsters/105697/
