THR also reports that D’Onofrio, McCallany and Knapp will join Run All Night just ahead of of the film’s production start in New York City.  Neeson stars as an “aging hitman who, in an effort to protect his estranged son (Joel Kinnaman), is forced to take on his former boss, played by Ed Harris”  McCallany stars as “Frank, a member of Harris’ character’s gang who is charged with killing Kinnaman’s character.”  D’Onofrio and Knapp’s roles are under wraps for the moment.

Deadline reports that Brosnan will star in I.T. as “a successful book publisher who finds himself pitted against a young disgruntled I.T. consultant who is tech savvy and uses that to threaten the author’s family and livelihood.”  The producers are currently looking to cast the antagonist role and are aiming for a production start in 2014.

    -Into The Woods (Stage Musical Adaptation of Grimm Stories)
    -Maleficent, Cinderella, Cruella (Live-Action Reimaginings)
    -Once Upon a Time/In Wonderland (TV show that throws any non copywritten fairytale character into a blender)

    And now “Happily Ever After”. So is this a new subgenre following the success of Enchanted that is based around a forgettable comedic premise?
