While Luke Evans was linked to the project back in 2013, more recently the actor revealed that he wasn't part of the production anymore. This came along with news that F. Javier Gutierrez was no longer directing and had been replaced by Colin Hardy. And with a new director on board, it sounds like a new star has been found as well. Deadline reports "Boardwalk Empire" star and future Ben-Hur leading man Jack Huston is now in early talks to take the lead role. More below!

First Look: Eddie Redmayne Goes Transgender for 'The Danish Girl'

Eddie Redmayne

What's next for the Oscar winner? How about another challenging role. The Daily Mail has revealed the first look photo of the most recent Best Actor Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne in the new film The Danish Girl, from director Tom Hooper (of The King's Speech, Les Miserables). In the film Redmayne plays Einar Wegener, a painter in the 1920s who decides to transform into a woman after he poses in their clothes when a model doesn't show up. He later became Lili Elbe, and this first photo shows Redmaybe in full make-up and clothing as Lili. It will make anyone do a double take. "We're looking at everything from a feminine perspective," Redmayne told them. "I think it's the most sensitive role I have played." Take a look.

Denis Villeneuve / Blade Runner

As of last fall, we learned that Blade Runner 2 was still very much in the works, but it looked like Ridley Scott would not be at the helm. And now that's been confirmed as a press release from Alcon Entertainment has announced that Prisoners, Enemy and Incendies director Denis Villeneuve is now in talks to be at the helm of the sequel that is aiming to being shooting in the summer of 2016. The script is still coming from Hampton Fincher, co-writer of the original Blade Runner, with Green Lantern writer Michael Green also having a hand in the screenplay. Details are scarce, but the story unfolds "several decades" after the original.

Rosamund Pike

Ben Stiller Tries to Be Hip in Second Trailer for 'While We're Young'

While We're Young

"Why do you suddenly want to hang out with a couple of 25 year olds?" You're only as young as you feel, and Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts seem to feel like they're in their mid-20s again. At least, that's what happens when they start hanging out with youngsters Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried in While We're Young, the latest from The Squid and the Whale / Frances Ha writer & director Noah Baumbach. This might be Baumbach's most accessible film, perhaps with a skew toward older crowds as opposed to the usual young, hip indie audience. But the writing, characters and comedy are genuine enough for all to enjoy.

New 'Fantastic Four Images,' Film Described as 'Dark Amblin Movie'

Fantastic Four

Last month the teaser trailer for Fantastic Four came out of nowhere, finally showing off what we can expect from Josh Trank's comic book reboot. The teaser was pretty heavy-handed, going for a tone akin to Interstellar, so we're wondering just what we'll see in the next trailer. In the meantime, Empire has released four new images from the film, each giving us a new look at Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Kate Mara in the film. There's nothing too revealing here, but at his point, we'll take what we can get. The film doesn't hit until later this summer, so we've probably got time to wait for more footage. Look!

Watch: First Trailer for Award-Winning 'Dark Horse' Sundance Doc

Dark Horse Trailer

"How can that possibly be a success?" This looks great! Coming out of Sundance this year were a number of outstanding documentaries (our 7 favorites here), including this one, which picked up the Audience Award in the World Cinema Documentary category. Dark Horse is a documentary about a small Welsh town that decides to adopt and breed a racehorse even though they don't have much money. Lo and behold it goes on to become a huge success, and this is the story of that horse and the town. This is one film we didn't get to see, but heard nothing but amazing things about during the festival. This first trailer definitely gives us a glimpse at just how crowdpleasing and inspiring it is, and I'm looking forward to seeing it sooner than later.

Trailer for 'Raiders!' Doc About the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made

Raiders!

We've talked about the awesome shot-for-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark that was attempted by a group of 12-year old kids back in 1982 before. The film became a cult sensation when it was screened in Austin, Texas, and now the story of how the film came to be is coming to the big screen with a documentary called Raiders! premiering at SXSW next month. In addition to looking back at the making of the film with childhood friends Eric Zala and Chris Strompolos, it also chronicles their attempt to shoot the final scene they could never pull off: the infamous Flying Wing scene where the shirtless Nazi strongman is cut up by the circling plane's propeller while fighting Indy. This looks like one hell of a cool story. Watch now!
