The Cannes Film Festival is currently running over in France, and while the Fest hosts the premieres of such prestige pictures as Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom and John Hillcoat’s Lawless, it’s also a place to sell movies for distribution. We’ve already brought you some billboards and sales posters for Django Unchained, One Shot, Spring Breakers and more, and now our international correspondent Magdalena has sent over quite a few more posters. We’ve got new looks at the Gerard Butler-fronted White House Taken, Chris Colfer’s Struck By Lightning, the drama Love and Honor starring Liam Hemsworth, a film called Homefront written and produced by Sylvester Stallone and starring Jason Statham, and many more. Hit the jump to check out all the posters.
Channing Tatum has signed on to star in Love and Honor, a film based on the life of Catherine the Great written and directed by Randall Wallace (Secretariat). Tatum will play American soldier Kieran Selkirk, recruited by Benjamin Franklin to convince the Russian Empress not to join the British in war against America: “Selkirk must survive savage terrain, starving wolves, secret assassins, marauding Cossacks, a court of seductive young women, and even a dramatic romantic face-off with the legendary Tsarina herself.”
No word yet on who might play Catherine, but an offer is out to Anne Hathaway to play Beatrice, servant to a Russian princess and love interest to Selkirk. Wallace is adapting his own 2005 historical fiction novel of the same name; hit the jump for a synopsis.
