This one was already a must-see of 2015 before Winslet. You do the math.

Not bad, but it doesn't scream Aronofsky. Then again, nothing about the film up to this point has. My guess is it'll be a decent film, but nowhere near the level of his previous work, and definitely not the classic epic I was hoping for.

@skywise Agreed. Friedkin, Daniels, Nichols, Vallee, Scorsese, Nolan, and now Van Sant? That's one hell of a paper trail.
Bradley Cooper would be a great fit, too.
I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. Identity Thief and Horrible Bosses were two of the better comedies of the past couple years, (comedic relief being something the Uncharted series has plenty of), and The King of Kong shows he has a love and understanding of the medium, which is the most important thing. In short, he's got my vote; although, I was more excited about David O. Russell...that is, before he dropped out and before Mark Wahlberg's name started being tossed around for the role of Drake. Glad we dodged that bullet.

Mcdermott/Fillion for Drake

I'm down for anything McConaughey does these days. He's quickly transformed himself one of the best actors in the world today.

The Insider was f*ckin awesome. If it's anywhere near that level, it's sure to be great. Plus you can't go wrong with Leo.

@shuabert Yeah, not to point fingers, but it's a credibility issue when you see a dead guy's name set to direct a film at the end of an article relating to the circ*mstances surrounding his sudden and unfortunate passing.

"He was set to make his second directorial feature later this year, as Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams joined his long-gestating prohibition era drama Ezekiel Moss one day before his passing this past weekend.

Ezekiel Moss comes to theaters in 2015 and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams. The film is directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman."

There's a joke in there somewhere, but the gravity of the situation far outweighs the levity. Suffice it to say, I think it's time @movieweb update its template.
