Joel Kinnaman Fan • your only source for actor joel kinnamanyour only source for 'The Killing's' Joel Kinnaman – Joel Kinnaman is in early talks to replace Tom Hardy in Warner Bros. and DC’s “Suicide Squad.”

The film currently stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne, with David Ayer directing.

Based on the DC comicbook, the story centers on the team of supervillains who are given a chance at redemption by the government. The catch: Their mission will probably kill them all.

Charles Roven and Richard Suckle are producing. Production is set to begin in April.

Hardy fell out in January for unknown reasons, and Warners worked quickly to find his replacement in order to meet the start of production. The studio has long viewed this project as the “Ocean’s Eleven” of comicbook movies and has been looking to load up the roster with top-tier talent.

The film is set to bow Aug. 5, 2016.

Kinnaman beat out several actors for the role, which was highly coveted by actors between the ages of 28 and 40 and looks to be a good fit for the former star of “The Killing.”

He most recently finished filming “Run All Night,” another Warner Bros. crime thriller, which bows in March. He is repped by WME and Magnolia Entertainment. – Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike and The Killing star Joel Kinnaman are taking the plunge.

They are attached to star in The Bends, a diving adventure from producer Cybill Lui’s newly formed Anova Pictures. Emerging filmmaker Jean Luc Herbulot (Dealer) is directing.

The film centers on a mysterious discovery at the bottom of the ocean that reopens old issues for a former combat Marine who is working to pay off his debt to the mob.

Sierra/Affinity will launch the high-profile project to foreign buyers at the upcoming Berlin Film Festival. It’s sure to spark keen interest, thanks to its commercial potential as well as Pike’s Oscar and BAFTA nominations for Gone Girl, the David Fincher thriller that stunned at the global box office, earning nearly $370 million to date.

Herbulot will direct The Bends from a script by Oliver Leo. Shelley Browning is executive producing.

Pike also is attached to romantic drama The Mountain Between Us with Charlie Hunnam. She’s repped by CAA, United Agents in the U.K. and Magnolia Entertainment.

Kinnaman, who starred in RoboCop, has three films in post: Warner Bros.’ Run All Night with Liam Neeson, Summit’s Child 44 with Tom Hardy and Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups, which will screen at the Berlin Film Festival. He’s repped by WME, Magnolia Entertainment and Hansen, Jacobson. Herbulot is repped by WME and the Gotham Group. – Liam Neeson knows there’s a website devoted to tracking the international baddies he’s taken out in his action films over the decades.

“You might punch in ‘killing machine’ and something will come up, I promise you,” says a still-surprised Neeson. “There’s a map of the world and there’s arrows pointing to all of the nationalities I have taken out.”

Look for a lot more Neeson kill-sties to dot the globe this year: His action-thriller Run All Night hits theaters April 17, and its trailer debuts this week, timed to the Friday release of Taken 3, featuring his final turn as the lethal CIA operative Bryan Mills.

Run All Night marks the actor’s third collaboration with director Jaume Collet-Serra, following 2011’s Unknown and last year’s Non-Stop. Neeson plays Mob hitman Jimmy Conlon, who has earned the nickname “The Gravedigger.” He’s a washed-up, heavy-drinking “Westie” Irish gangster, kept on board because of his near-brotherly relationship with Mob boss Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris).

The relationship turns when Jimmy’s estranged son Mike (Joel Kinnaman) — who has stayed away from the dirty family business — accidentally witnesses a hit. Maguire’s gang moves in to rub out the witness, but his father intervenes.

“Jimmy has to fight for his son’s survival and his own survival,” says Neeson. “The cops, corrupt cops and the Westies are after us. So, basically, we run all night.”

The film, set over 24 hours, pivots around Neeson’s disrupted relationship with Harris, who becomes hellbent on killing the Conlons. Meanwhile, a bevy of macho stars enters the picture, including Vincent D’Onofrio as a detective and the rapper Common as a hit man.

“It’s funny when you turn up on set with all of these masculine guys,” jokes Robocop star Kinnaman. “We all end up being all vulnerable. We’re actually really sensitive.”

On a serious note, Kinnaman gives big props to 6-foot-4 former boxer Neeson, 62, who continues to sustain, convincingly, a career in action films. “I don’t think anyone can mess with old Liam,” says Kinnaman. “He’s a big fella.”

Run All Night climaxes with a showdown between Neeson and Harris, and “you gotta believe it goes down in true Western style,” says Neeson. But along the way, he and Kinnaman leave a trail of departed foes as they travel by train, subway and car throughout New York City’s boroughs, offering more fodder for the kill map.

Still, there’s one location Neeson vows to stay away from in future films: North Korea. After the Sony hacking debacle in December over The Interview, that’s one fight Neeson won’t take on.

“I don’t think so,” he says. “I don’t want the little guy — what’s his name? Kim Jong Un — to get any more angry.”

Green Arrow FanCast

Comicbookmovie.comIn honor of the return of CW’s Arrow these past few weeks, I thought I would create a fancast for a big screen adaptation of Green Arrow. Now, keep in mind as you take a look at my cast, that this iteration of Green Arrow would exist within the DCCU that I have created in the past year.

In my past few editorials/fancast, I’ve always had a fully developed fan fiction to go along with the casting but given how I’ve never anticipated a Green Arrow movie fitting in my DCCU plans (which obviously has already been shot to hell by what’s actually going on) I didn’t bother coming up with a plot line for the movie.

WARNING: I apologize before hand for the lack of pictures. For some reason, I am having trouble uploading pictures and thus cannot embed them into the article. I will update if I ever figure out what the problem is.

Anyway, without further ado—and I hope you enjoy—the cast of Green Arrow:

Joel Kinnaman as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow: Okay, yes, I’ll admit—Joel Kinnaman is an extremely generic choice to play Oliver Queen but one can’t deny his burgeoning Hollywood status what with a lead role in RoboCop and the critically-acclaimed The Killing. The latter clearly shows Kinnaman’s ability to act and given the right script, I think he has the perfect combination to bring explore all aspect of the Green Arrow persona and that of his secret identity, Oliver Queen. Kinnaman’s experience with action is also a plus and I think he only needs the right film and exposure to become a household name.

Joel Kinnaman Snags Sunset Strip Digs – It was Yolanda Yakketyyak, with her mysterious celebrity real estate ways, who first tattled to this eager-eared property gossip that uncommonly comely Swedish-born actor Joel Kinnaman — currently co-starring on “The Killing” — surreptitiously shelled out $2.45 million (via trust) for a revamped, 1970s mock-Med abode high in the hills above the Sunset Strip.

The two-story residence spans 2,542 square feet, according to marketing materials, with three city-view bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms uniformly slathered in identical tumbled stone tiles. The wood-floored, open-concept main living space has huge windows, beams across the ceiling, a concrete-faced catty-corner fireplace — one of three in the house — and a column-flanked sitting area just off the kitchen and dining area.

Many houses in the steep hills above the Sunset Strip lack proper yard space, but Mister Kinnaman’s new crib has an unusually large and flat grassy yard with stone-tiled terraces, a plunge-sized swimming pool and tree-framed views that extend to the towers of Century City and — on a particularly clear day — the Pacific Ocean.
