Popular Japanese model and singer Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will be singing a song featured in the Japanese release of Star Trek Into Darkness. Songwriter and DJ Yasutaka Nakata will be writing the song titled “Into Darkness“. The insert song will be used in a club scene in the film.
The man behind the film, J.J. Abrams, has chosen top artists from six different countries to be featured in various versions of the film. Abrams himself is working alongside the artists.
Paramount Pictures Japan will be distributing the film in Japanese theaters on August 23rd.
The Assassin’s Creed movie starring Michael Fassbender will be released on Memorial Day 2015. The Splinter Cell movie will star Tom Hardy. Both of the actors are also attached as producers to the projects. Michael Bay will be developing Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon into a potential film franchise at Warner Bros., Ubisoft has announced. Ubisoft is currently in talks with Frank Marshall and Basil Iwanyk to serve as producers for two movies, respectively.
Ubisoft will retain the creative control over the movies for Watch Dogs, Far Cry and Rabbids. This means a special division will hire screenwriters, directors, cast and choose the production shingles and studios. Ubisoft will fiance the scripts.
The plan for Rabbids is for it to be a live-action film featuring the rabbits as CG characters, similar to The Smurfs or Alvin and the Chipmunks. The movies will not be retelling the games, but will feature a completely new plot.
Leonardo DiCaprio will be playing Rasputin in a new movie in development by Warner Bros. Rasputin is the “Russian mystic who became an advisor to the Russian Imperial family, The Romanovs, before being brutally killed.”
The script is written by Jason Hall. The movie is being produced by Appian Way‘s Jennifer Davisson Killoran, Peter Morgan and Langley Park‘s Kevin McCormick. DiCaprio’s interest was apparently sparked due to “new elements unearthed by Hall”.
The new elements gave a “psychological depth to the so called ‘mad monk.’ To his enemies, he was a charlatan who prolifically bedded women… DiCaprio liked the complicated elements of a child who lost the better part of himself when his brother died, and was capable of kindness but also a ruthlessness.”
So far there is no director attached to the project.
The Need for Speed movie is going to be filmed in the Columbus, Georgia area on the 13th Street Bridge. The movie will be filmed from Tuesday to Saturday. Among the stars starring in the movie we find Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Michael Keaton (Batman, Beetlejuice),and Dominic Cooper (Captain America, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).
Apparently the scene filmed will involve a crash, which is why the bridge over the Chattahoochee River is closed off. Other scenes will also be filmed in other towns in Georgia such as Macon and Rome.
As for the movie, it’s expect to launch on February 7th, 2014 in theaters.
Fassbender’s participation in the movie was confirmed last year. Still, it’s not confirmed which character he will be playing, although we’re guessing the main character (whoever that may be). In January we found out that the movie’s writer would be no other than Michael Lesslie.

“Gunther Cleary has his whole day mapped out, but a simple elevator ride shows him that life doesn’t always go as planned.”
What did you think of it?
At one point the movie seemed to have a fighting chance as Gore Verbinski was the director, however, he later withdrew from the film project. A new director was assigned, but the movie just fell apart. Ultimately it was Levine’s decision to either push the movie or let it go completely.
In an interview with Eurogamer, when asked about the film Levine said, “2K’s one of these companies that puts a lot of creative trust in people. So they said if you want to kill it, kill it. And I killed it.”
Are you awfully disappointed?
