AARON TAYLOR JOHNSON JOINS CHRIS PINE IN EPIC ‘OUTLAW KING’
Great epic news today, people! Earlier this year it was reported that Chris Pine will play Robert the Bruce, the hero of Scottish war for independ- ence, and now Aaron Taylor Johnson has been cast as his right hand man, another 14th century Scottish legend James Douglas in Netflix’s movie OUTLAW KING
No date given
As the son of the first noble to support William Wallace when he fomented the first movement toward independence from the English, Douglas saw his father’s lands given away, and after being denied them by the English king, he joined Robert the Bruce as an outcast properly motivated to avenge his loss. Together, they learned guerilla fighting tactics that led to years of surprise attacks, sacked castles and, finally, independence. David Mackenzie is directing.
A supernaturally talented magician attempts to undermine the rigid social structure of turn-of-the-century Vienna by using his powers to win the love of his upper-class, childhood sweetheart in director Neil Burger’s cinematic adaptation of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Steven Millhauser’s short story. Though the ill-fated childhood romance between cabinetmaker’s son Eisenheim (Edward Norton) and upper-class Sophie von Teschen (Jessica Biel) eventually resulted in the heartbroken young man leaving Austria to explore the world, his dreams of one day reuniting with the beautiful duchess never faded. Upon returning to Vienna 15 years later as a talented and renowned illusionist, Eisenheim’s hopes of a reunion seem dashed when he learns that Sophie is currently engaged to the Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell). As the tensions between the Eisenheim and Leopold elevate, urbane Chief Inspector Uhl (Paul Giamatti) finds his sympathy toward Eisenheim growing, despite his formal obligations to the powerful prince.
