  • Amanda Seyfried will be starring in Black Lung alongside Theo James (Divergent). The plot revolves around a young wife who has a premonition about a disaster, which helps her save her husband’s life but puts her under suspicion when an explosion entombs several miners and her visions point to a sinister force in the mountain. The film is set to start shooting this summer. [The Hollywood Reporter]
  • Pirates of the Caribbean 5 has added Adam Brown, Delroy Atkinson, and Danny Kirrane to its cast, helmed by Johnny Depp. The plot details of the Jerry Bruckheimer production are still unknown, but pre-production has already begun in Australia. The film is set for a July 2017 release. [Variety]
  • Peter Dinklage has been added to the comedy Michelle Darnell, starring Melissa McCarthy. The script is based on an original character created by McCarthy, and follows a captain of industry who is sent to prison after being caught for insider trading. When she is released, not everyone has forgiven her. The details on Dinklage’s role are vage, but he will be playing an antagonist. [Variety]
  • Luke Evans (the Hobbit trilogy) is set to star in Otto Bathurst‘s Three Seconds. The film is about a man who is forced undercover in prison as part of an FBI operation, and then has to escape after he is abandoned during the mission. Principal photography is set to begin in the spring in New York.
