Tatiana Maslany and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are the frontrunners for the female lead in Gemini Man, an action movie to star Will Smith.

Ang Lee is directing the movie, which hails from Skydance and Paramount.

Smith is playing two roles in the unique actioner. One is that of Henry, an aging assassin who wants to get out of the business but finds himself in a battle with the ultimate opponent: his clone, who is 25 years younger and at the peak of his abilities.

Clive Owen, meanwhile, is in talks to play the head of the cloning program, one of the villains of the movie, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Maslany and Winstead have read and are testing for the role of Danny, an operative who works for the same company as Henry and is tasked to surveil him. However, she soon teams up with him. Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) is also in the running for the female lead.

A decision for the part will be made soon as the movie is eying a February start with an international shoot that would include locations ranging from Savannah, Georgia to Budapest, Hungary.

Maslany is the award-winning actress who starred in her own clone project, Orphan Black. She starred with Jake Gyllenhaal in the drama Stronger.

Winstead is coming off a turn in season three of FX’s acclaimed Fargo.

Tatiana Maslany won’t be striking a Pose.

Earlier Wednesday, FX officially announced a series order for Ryan Murphy’s Pose, which features the most trans series regulars ever on an American television show. But noticeably absent from the release was Maslany, who had previously been cast as a modern dance teacher who develops a relationship with Damon (Ryan Jamaal Swain).

Now the network has confirmed that the Orphan Black star has exited the drama, with the role having been “reconceived and rewritten to be a 50-year-old African-American woman.” This has led to the casting of ER and Law & Order: SVU alum Charlayne Woodard.

Maslany recently wrapped her five-season, Emmy-winning run on Orphan Black, in which she starred as more than 10 different clone characters. Meanwhile, in addition to joining Pose, Woodard is set to reprise her Unbreakable role as the mother of Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) in M. Night Shyamalan’s 2019 sequel Glass.

Pose will premiere on FX in the summer of 2018.

Tatiana Maslany, who won an Emmy for her role in Orphan Black, and Sebastian Stan from the Captain America and Avengers franchises along with the Oscar-buzzed-about I, Tonya, are in negotiations to join Nicole Kidman in the crime thriller Destroyer. The feature is being directed by Karyn Kusama from an original screenplay by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. 30WEST is fully financing the film with Fred Berger of Automatik, who will be producing alongside Hay and Manfredi.

This brings the team together of Kusama, Hay and Manfredi who were behind the critically acclaimed 2015 film The Invitation.

Destroyer follows the moral and existential odyssey of LAPD detective Erin Bell who, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a gang in the California desert with tragic results. When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, she must work her way back through the remaining members and into her own history with them to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past.

Rocket Science is handling international sales, which began at the American Film Market, where Bliss Media acquired the distribution rights to Destroyer in China. ICM Partners and CAA are representing the North American rights.

The BBC America’s Orphan Black (for which Maslany won an Emmy) finished its five-series run earlier this year. Most recently, the actress starred alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Lionsgate’s Stronger, and has also appeared in films such as The Other Half, Two Lovers and a Bear, Woman in Gold, and The Vow.

Stan portrays Tonya Harding’s disgraced husband, Jeff Gilooly in I, Tonya. 30WEST will co-distribute the film with Neon on Dec. 8th. The actor is currently filming the next installation of the Avengers series and will reprise his role of Bucky Barnes in The Winter Soldier in Avengers: Infinity War next spring. Stan has also appeared in I’m Not Here, Logan Lucky, The Martian and Black Swan.

Maslany is repped by ICM Partners and The Characters Talent Agency; Stan is by ICM Partners and Brookside Artist Management.

Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Tatiana Maslany Join Ryan Murphy’s ‘Pose’

The FX pilot centers on the ball culture in 1980s New York City.
Ryan Murphy’s 1980s FX drama Pose is rounding out its cast.

Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Tatiana Maslany have joined the pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The drama looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in 1980s New York: the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.

Peters and Mara, both of whom have worked with Murphy on American Horror Story, will play a New Jersey couple named Stan and Patty who get sucked into the glamor and intrigue of ’80s New York City.

Van Der Beek will portray Stan’s financial kingpin boss. Maslany is set as a modern dance teacher who takes a special interest in the talent of Damon (previously announced cast members Ryan Jamaal Swain.)

Murphy and FX made history Wednesday when it was announced that the pilot will feature five transgender actors in a series regular roles — a scripted TV record. The castings came after a six-month nationwide casting call for the project.

Murphy co-created the show with frequent collaborator Brad Falchuk (Glee, American Horror Story) and Steven Canals. Murphy’s People v. O.J. Simpson collaborators Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson as well as Alexis Martin Woodall (The Normal Heart, Feud, American Horror Story) and Sherry Marsh (Vikings) will exec produce the drama. Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions will co-produce.

If picked up to series, this would mark Murphy’s fourth at FX, joining anthologies American Crime Story, American Horror Story and Feud. He also the upcoming Fox drama 911, set to premiere midseason.

For Peters, the role comes after frequent starring roles on various iterations of American Horror Story, where he is currently starring in season seven. The actor, whose other credits include the X-Men franchise, is repped by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham.

If picked up to series, Pose would be Mara’s first series regular role since Netflix’s House of Cards. In addition to appearing on the first season of AHS, her other credits include We Are Marshall, Shooter, Brokeback Mountain and the Fantastic Four reboot. She is repped by UTA, Mosaic, and Stone, Genow, Smelkinson, Binder & Christopher, LLP.

Van Der Beek joins the Murphy-verse after most recently playing a fictional version of DJ Diplo in Vice’s first scripted series, What Would Diplo Do? The Paradigm-repped actor’s many other TV credits include Dawson’s Creek, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, Criminal Minds and CSI: Cyber.

Pose would mark Maslany’s first TV role since Orphan Black ended its run in five-season run in August. She earned an Emmy award for best actress in a drama for her work in the BBC America series and also recently starred in the Boston Marathon drama Stronger. She is repped by ICM and The Characters in Canada.

The US premiere of “Stronger,” the movie about Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, will not be held in a fancy theater in New York, Los Angeles, or even in Boston. Instead, the much-anticipated movie starring Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal will screen first, on Sept. 12, at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown, where Bauman and 31 others injured in the bombings were treated.

“It’s important for us to be in that space,” says “Stronger” director David Gordon Green.

The movie, which arrives in theaters Sept. 22, is the second big-budget Hollywood film about the events of April 15, 2013, when two bombs detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and wounding more than 260. Bauman, who was there to greet his then-girlfriend, lost both of his legs in one of the blasts.

“Patriots Day,” which came out last?winter, starred Mark Wahlberg as a Boston police officer and focused primarily on the bombings and the subsequent search for those responsible.

“Stronger,” based on Bauman’s book of the same name, is a very different sort of film. Green, whose diverse credits include the acclaimed teen drama “George Washington” and the stoner comedy “Pineapple Express,” said “Stronger” is a character piece, a discreet story set against the backdrop of a major news event.

“It’s the intimate architecture set within an epic framework,” Green said Friday. “We’re all familiar with the headlines, but this is particular to a relationship affected by the events of that day. When you get to know Jeff and Erin [Hurley, Bauman’s then-girlfriend], and his family members, there’s great drama and struggle and triumph and humor.

“For the audience, it’s very valuable to see these characters in a relatable way.”

In the interest of authenticity, Green said many of the real-life people who treated and worked with Bauman — including nurses, the surgeon, physical therapists, and the prosthetic team — play themselves in “Stronger.”

“This was a story we didn’t want to embellish with too much Hollywood glitz and glamour,” he said. “For example, when we were talking with the prosthetic technicians, they were speaking in a technical language I’m not familiar with, and it was a struggle to imagine how I could re-create that with actors.”

In addition to Gyllenhaal, who earned a best supporting actor nod for?his performance in “Brokeback Mountain,” “Stronger” costars “Orphan Black” actress Tatiana Maslany as Erin and Miranda Richardson as Bauman’s mother, Patty. (Gyllenhaal, Maslany, and Green are all expected to attend the premiere.)

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital opened its new Charlestown facility just 12 days after the Boston Marathon bombings, and 16 of the 32 blast victims who were treated there had amputations.

“We opened the doors of the new hospital just in time and we wound up seeing the most catastrophically injured people,” says David Storto, president of Spaulding Rehabilitation Network. “For all the wrong reasons, this event provided an opportunity for the public at large to understand disability issues and rehab medicine, which are not commonly understood and appreciated as other medical sub specialties are.”

“Stronger” was partially filmed at Spaulding, including in the gym where the Sept 12. screening will be held. Before agreeing to host the premiere, Storto said the hospital needed to make sure that patients will be able to receive the therapy they need elsewhere at Spaulding.

“[The gym] is an inspirational space for patients to do their therapy and I think there will be nice synergy to see Jeff’s story there,” Storto said.

Green is likewise excited.

“We’ve designed what I hope will be a unique experience to show Boston what we’ve made,” the director said. “We’re taking something nontraditional and exhibiting it in a nontraditional way.”

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have set an awards-season release date of Sept. 22 for Jake Gyllenhaal’s Boston Marathon bombing movie “Stronger.”

Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff Bauman, while Tatiana Maslany plays his girlfriend Erin Hurley, in a story about love triumphing over adversity. Clancy Brown (“Hail, Caesar!”) portrays Bauman’s father and Miranda Richardson plays his mother Patty Bauman.

The film is a production of Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label, Mandeville Films, Bold Films, and Nine Stories. It’s Gyllenhaal’s first production under his Nine Stories banner.

Inspired by a true story and based on the New York Times bestseller by Bauman and Bret Witter, the film stars Gyllenhaal as the working-class Boston man whose iconic photo from the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing gained worldwide notice.

Bauman was waiting for his girlfriend at the finish line of the marathon when two pressure-cooker bombs exploded, killing three people and injuring more than 260 others. When Bauman awoke the next day after surgeries and realized he could not speak. He asked for a pad and paper, and wrote: “Saw the guy. Looked right at me.”

That set off a massive manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was convicted of the murders last year. The book, published in 2014, also describes Bauman’s attempts to walk again and face his new circumstances with grace.

The movie is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay written by Boston local John Pollono. Producers are Todd Lieberman & David Hoberman (“The Fighter”), Gyllenhaal, Scott Silver, and Michel Litvak (“Whiplash”). Executive producers are Riva Marker, Peter McGuigan, Anthony Mattero, Gary Michael Walters, Jeffrey Stott, and Nicolas Stern.

This marks the second Lionsgate movie about the Boston Marathon bombing — “Patriots Day,” co-financed with CBS Films and starring Mark Wahlberg, was released late last year. The news about “Stronger” was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.

Sci-fi series “Orphan Black” will air its farewell season this summer. On Friday, the production company behind the show, Boat Rocker Media, is launching a mobile game to kindle excitement among Clone Club fans leading up to the series finale — and its creators believe the app will have a life that extends well beyond the TV run.

“Orphan Black: The Game” is a turn-based adventure puzzle game retelling key plots points from seasons 1-4 in the form of what Boat Rocker calls “fever-dream worlds” with a nightmarish art style. Players control the clone sestras (played in the show by Tatiana Maslany) as they fight enemies, avoid traps and solve riddles. The game launches Friday, March 24, priced at $4.99 (U.S.) in Apple’s iTunes App Store. Initially, it’s available only for iOS.

“It was important that there was a mystery, conspiracy feel to the game,” John Fawcett, who co-created “Orphan Black” with Graeme Manson, said in an interview. “That really locks into the theme of the show.”

The game features virtually all the clone sisters — Sarah, Cosima, Alison, Helena, Rachel, Beth, MK, Katja, Tony and Krystal — with more than 80 levels across 10 different worlds. Unlike the TV show, “Orphan Black: The Game” presents the storylines in a chronological fashion. Fawcett noted that in the game, the story begins with a prologue of events that happen before season 1 even starts, with “MK leading us in the forest to Beth.” (The show’s fans, we presume, will understand what he’s talking about.)

Maslany, who won the 2016 Emmy for best actress in a drama series for “Orphan Black,” provided voiceovers for the game. That includes a signature line she delivers when players reach the end of each world, said Bryce Hunter, senior VP of Boat Rocker Digital. “The grunts and death sounds are her voice as well,” he said.

The game also includes a variety of Easter eggs, including a secret world that players can uncover at the end. But the Boat Rocker guys refused to spill the beans on any of that.

Hunter said the company started assembling a team to develop the game in 2014, and began production on “Orphan Black: The Game” last year. Why hasn’t the studio produced a game for the show until now? After all, given the dystopian-tech vibe of the TV show, a game is a natural fit. Most of the clones don’t know about their sisters when the story starts, and as the show unfolds they’re forced to fight the forces behind the mysterious experiment as they race to solve the ultimate explanation for their existence.

“There were logistical hoops,” Hunter said. “We brought in a very focused, experienced team to dive into the world of ‘Orphan Black.’” Developers tested about 10 different gameplay types to make sure it would fit with the feel of the show and meet fan expectations. “Orphan Black: The Game” uses Unity Technologies’ game engine.

Fawcett, who spoke to Variety during a break in shooting this week for the series finale, said Boat Rocker is readying the launch of other projects related to the show, including a comic-book series at the end of March. “We’re hoping get fans champing at the bit to see season 5,” Fawcett said.

The fifth and final season premieres June 10, on BBC America in the U.S. and Canada’s Space network. “Orphan Black” is produced by Boat Rocker Studios’ Temple Street division in association with BBC America and Bell Media’s Space.

Fawcett said the last season spends a lot of time on Neolution Island and on the clones’ attempts to dismantle the Neolutionist patriarchy. “It’s been a crazy, crazy experience for us – every other day there’s been another main character wrapping, never to be seen again,” he said. “Our wrap party felt more like a funeral than a celebration.” For Fawcett, the most difficult character to bid goodbye to was Allison Hendrix, the suburban housewife, whom he said was probably his favorite of the clones.

On Wednesday, BBC America released a few cryptic details of what’s coming in season 5. Here’s the teaser: “This season, the walls close in on Sarah when nearly all her sestras and their allies are brought to heel by Rachel. Even more harrowing is that her daughter Kira has joined them. With the threat of Neolution having carte-blanche access to clone biology, Sarah is desperate to gain control, but realizes she must change tactics to pursue a long game. Protecting both her families, and the host of clones she’s yet to meet, Sarah and those still fighting the fight will uncover the missing pieces of the insidious conspiracy – and finally learn the story behind their origin. Despite the great risk, the fight of her life will either set her and her sestras free, or see them meet their end.”

At launch, “Orphan Black: The Game” will incorporate plot points and characters from the first four seasons, and Boat Rocker expects to introduce season 5 level packs later. As for why the company is launching it as a premium game, Hunter said that fans overwhelming preferred that model instead of it being a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
