Snyder Celebrates 9 Month Mark With Justice League Sneak Peek

Zack Snyder/Vero

Exactly nine months to go until the Justice League release, and director Zack Snyder marked the occasion by releasing this behind the scenes look at his editing process. And we see a Batman fight scene!

We would have preferred if it had included Supes, but the secret back from the dead plot kinda prevents that (though some of you tell us you see him on the top right corner of the pic). 

Is that you Superman???

Someone who will not be returning in Justice League is Clark's boss at the Daily Planet, Perry White. Actor Laurence Fishburne confirmed the news to the L.A. Times:

They asked me to come for a day, but I couldn’t work it out, schedule-wise. And really, what do you need the newspaperman in “Justice League” for? You want to see the Flash. You want to see Aquaman. You want to see Wonder Woman. You want to see the Lantern.

Batman v Superman/Warner Bros.

Hopefully Perry is back when Superman gets his second standalone film.

There is no official word yet on when the new Justice League trailer will be out, but it's looking like it could be next month. Hype! We'll keep you posted. 

UPDATE (2/19): Zack's post about the trailer!

Sand Castle Out April 14, Henry Describes Captain Syverson

It's been an exciting week, with Henry announcing he's about to start filming Nomis in Winnipeg, Canada later this month.

And for the first time, he's also sharing how he went about creating Captain Syverson in Sand Castle, giving details on how he prepared to play the seasoned military man.

Henry's interview is part of an in-depth article about the movie in Total Film, that also gives a Netflix release date of April 14. Check it out below!

A huge thanks to @SergioEES and @FiftyShadesAS for the scans.

Weekend Flashback: Solo Smiles For The Camera In Rome

Henry filmed part of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in Rome, and one fall day in 2013 he ventured off to do some sightseeing. This candid moment was captured by Barbara, who is an Italian freelance photographer. She just shared the cute pic on her Instagram.

Nice to see you again, Solo! (people are still talking about his performance).

Check out the gallery below for more photos from that October day in Rome.

Henry Announces Project, 'Nomis' Starts Filming This Month

Huge news today, as Henry announced he's headed to Canada (in the middle of winter) to shoot Nomis. He'll be joined by costars Sir Ben Kingsley and Alexandra Daddario.

We don't know much about the plot, other than it's being described as a psychological thriller by his excited manager.

David Raymond (head of Arise Pictures) will be directing, and we can't wait to bring you updates on this film as they develop.

UPDATE: Raymond spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about working with Henry, and the article gives new details on the plot and filming location:

David Raymond wrote and directed the film about an American police force who trap an online predator, only to realize the depth of his crimes goes far beyond anything they had anticipated.

Raymond will also produce the pic alongside Fortitudes’ Robert Ogden Barnum, Arise Pictures’ Chris Pettit and Buffalo Gals’ Jeff Beesley. Rick Dugdale will also produce, and Fortitudes’ Nadine De Barros will serve as executive producer.

Fortitude International will introduce the film to buyers at the EFM in Berlin. Production is set to begin at the end of February in Winnipeg, Canada.

“I’m overjoyed by our cast,” said Raymond in a statement. “Henry’s got such a strong presence onscreen, but he’s also incredibly smart and has a wicked sense of humor. I think people are going to be blown away by what he’s going to do with this role. Sir Ben is always incredible. I wrote the character for him, so I was quite relieved when he signed on. Alexandra is a raw talent and has an undeniable electricity, which is exactly why I wanted her in this role.”

Here are a few of the director's scouting pics, that really give you a feel for the film.

One of our readers found this article that hints at production possibly happening in the Okanagan area, but it's from more than a year ago so things could have (very possibly) changed:

Jon Summerland with the Okanagan Film Commission says they need to find an old, decrepit, decaying castle-type house.

“The idea has to feel like this house in the middle of nowhere is almost a prison. The people who are there have nowhere to go — you can’t see neighbours, can’t hear neighbours, you can’t see a road. You’ve got to feel like there’s nowhere you can go to get away from this almost a fortress, prison-type thing,” Summerland says.

Finding the perfect house has proven challenging, and Summerland is asking anyone with leads to get in touch with the film commission.

“The house is the driver and the difficult one. Once we nail down this house — unless it becomes something else maybe — I’m confident everything else will be easy,” Summerland says (..)

With the search for a vintage-looking house proving difficult, Dugdale says they are looking at creative solutions and ways of possibly adapting the story to a different type of building.

“We have some options for sure,” Dugdale says.

The cast for Nomis is coming together, with "recognizable names and people we may have worked with in the past," Dugdale says. He’s not saying much about the movie itself, which he describes as dark and suspenseful — something in the vein of Gone Girl meets Seven.

“The reason we can’t give away too much is it’s so full of twists and turns, we have to be careful not to give it away too soon.”

More from the Vernon Morning Star (dated October 2016):

The North Okanagan is still in the running for another movie.

Hollywood-based Enderby Entertainment is scouting locations for Nomis, a thriller.

“We have to make a decision on where we will shoot it,” said producer Rick Dugdale. “There’s a possibility of Manitoba or Vancouver but we will focus on Vernon hopefully.”

Pre-production will begin in November, with filming underway in January.

The new schedule has forced some changes to the script.

“It’s tough to burn down a corn field in January so we need a different finale,” said Dugdale.

With Enderby being his hometown, Dugdale would like to film Nomis in the North Okanagan, but he admits there are possible hurdles.

“The thing missing in the North Okanagan is crew. If there was a full-time crew there, we don’t have the travel costs of bringing people up from Vancouver,” he said.

“If it comes down to $200,000 or $300,000 difference, perhaps we can look at Vernon.”

Manitoba has experienced crew available in Winnipeg and a range of tax incentives for film productions.

“But trying to convince actors to go to Manitoba in January is a little more difficult than B.C.”

Before settling on Manitoba, producer Rick Dugdale scouted locations in Louisiana.

Total Film: "Superman Goes To War"

"Superman goes to War.."

That's one flashy headline that immediately caught the attention of DC fans excited about the Justice League feature included in the new issue of Total Film. But as @DCComicsUnited pointed out, when the magazine mentioned Supes, they meant Henry in Sand Castle!

The issue is out Friday, so we'll update the post when we get a first look. In the meantime, Henry's manager has shown her support for Captain Syverson on social media.

 Sand Castle is out on Netflix this spring.

UPDATE: @SergioEES has shared with us the article that includes new quotes from Henry and a release date of April 14. Just hit the pics below!
