Luc Besson’s Anna Cast Has Helen Mirren and Luke Evans

Luc Besson’s Anna cast has Helen Mirren, Luke Evans and more

According to Variety, director Luc Besson (LucyValerian and the City of a Thousand Planets) has struck a deal between Lionsgate and his own EuropaCorp to co-produce Anna, his next action film. The Anna cast is set to include Oscar winner Helen Mirren (The Fate of the Furious), Luke Evans (Professor Marston and the Wonder Women), Cillian Murphy (Dunkirk) and newcomer Sasha Luss in the title role. Mirren previously played the mother of Evans’ character in the Fast & Furious franchise.

Anna will be an English-language action thriller, budgeted in the $30 million range. The film, based on an original idea and written by Besson, will start shooting next month.

“We are delighted to be reunited with Luc and his EuropaCorp team on another exciting, action-packed film featuring an A-list cast,” said Lionsgate MPG chairman Patrick Wachsberger and president of acquisitions and co-productions Jason Constantine. “Luc is a visionary filmmaker with whom we are proud to extend our longstanding relationship.”

After the disappointing returns on this summer’s mega-budget Valerian, EuropaCorp will continue focusing on making action thrillers and sci-fi films along the lines of TakenLucyThe Professional and The Fifth Element, but they will produce less of them and Besson will now have more oversight over each of them. The projects will carry a budget of about $25 to $35 million per film.

Justice League Runtime, Rating and Sequel Talk

 

Justice League runtime, rating and sequel talk

Manabyte has confirmed that the Justice League runtime is 121 minutes, or two hours and one minute, which makes it the shortest of the DC Extended Universe films so far. Man of Steel was 143 minutes long, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came in at 151 minutes, Suicide Squad with 123 minutes, and Wonder Woman was 141 minutes long. The Warner Bros. release has also received a PG-13 rating for “sequences of sci-fi violence and action,” which is not unusual for this type of film.

In related news, Total Film (via Cosmic Book News) spoke to J.K. Simmons, who plays Commissioner Gordon in Justice League and said a script for the sequel is in the works. “Well, Commissioner Gordon wears a trench coat in every scene, so I don’t know that the ‘pumped up’ part is going to be all that evident, especially when you’re standing next to Batman! But this is the first Justice League movie – we hope – of a few. They’re working on scripts for The Batman and for the next Justice League movie. It introduces my incarnation of Commissioner Gordon. I don’t have a lot to do. I feel like I just dipped my toe in the water of who Commissioner Gordon will be.”

Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.

Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeMan of Steel), the screenplay is by Joss Whedon and Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio. Whedon directed the additional photography for the sequel and is overseeing the completion of its post production following Snyder’s family tragedy. Justice League is produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. The executive producers are Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curt Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck.

Justice League opens in theaters on November 17.
