“Sometimes I feel like I’m taking someone else’s spot and then I feel sad. Like, being here alive is a waste because… I don’t enjoy it, I’m not happy or grateful… and I’m taking a spot away from someone who maybe would’ve gotten something more out of it.
1892, New Mexico - legendary Army captain Joseph J. Blocker (Christian Bale) undertakes one final mission before retirement: escort Yellow Hawk (Wes Studi) – a dying Cheyenne war chief – and his family back to sacred tribal lands. After 20 years of violent struggle, this gesture of peace is as unthinkable as it is harrowing. Together they battle against a punishing landscape and the brutality of men alike, coming to the rescue of a young widow (Rosamund Pike) amidst the carnage of her murdered family. Two great warriors, once rivals across the battlefield, must learn to trust each other and find peace in an unforgiving land.
A heroic odyssey of survival, Hostiles- becomes a story not about the miles traveled nor the battles fought, but the journey towards respect, reconciliation, and forgiveness.
Directed by: Scott Cooper
Starring: Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi, Jesse Plemons, Rory Cochrane, Pilou Asbaek, Timothee Chalamet, Adam Beach, Q'orianka Kilcher, Ben Foster, Stephen Lang, Scott Wilson, Peter Mullan
‘Pitch’ Star Kylie Bunbury Joins Jason Bateman’s Comedy ‘Game Night’ (EXCLUSIVE)
Kylie Bunbury, star of the freshman Fox series “Pitch,” is in negotiations to join Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams in the New Line comedy “Game Night.”
Jesse Plemons is also on board to topline with Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley — the directing duo behind the 2015 comedy “Vacation” — helming the movie. Bateman is producing alongside James Garavente for Aggregate Films, while John Davis and John Fox will produce for Davis Entertainment. Goldstein and Daley also wrote the latest version of the screenplay, based on Mark Perez’s original draft.
“Game Night” follows several couples whose regularly-planned game night goes terribly wrong. Production is expected to start within the next few months.
With a second-season pickup of “Pitch” looking unlikely, execs on both the TV and film sides have been trying to find ways to work with the rising star. While audiences didn’t show up, critics raved Bunbury’s performance — she was in the running for projects like the “Star Wars” Han Solo spinoff. Disney/Lucasfilm eyed her for one of the female leads. Bunbury’s name was also considered for the lead in the “Star Trek” series, “Star Trek: Discovery.”
