Matt Gerald Joins Nicolaj Coster-Waldau In Shot Caller Cast

Daredevil's Melvin gets some action

With Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lake Bell and Jon Bernthal already cast, action drama Shot Caller is continuing to round out its roster. Latest to sign up is Matt Gerald, lately perhaps best known as Daredevil's Melvin Potter

The movie finds Coster-Waldau as a gangster freshly released from the slammer who is “encouraged” (read: ordered) to pull off a major, violent crime with a rival gang on the streets of Southern California. Gerald's role is that of a parole officer with a grudge against some particular gang members.

The director is Snitch’s Ric Roman Waugh, who also wrote the screenplay. The ex-stuntman reportedly went undercover as a parole officer to do the necessary prison gang research. That's some hardcore method writing right there.

Omari Hardwick, Benjamin Bratt, Emory Cohen, Juan Pablo Raba, Evan Jones and Jeffrey Donovan bulk up the rest of the cast, and production is already underway in New Mexico Bold Films is behind this one, with Relativity Studios agreeing to take on distribution for the finished product. 

You can still catch Gerald in San Andreas, and we'll next see him in Solace with Colin Farrell, which is out in the UK on October 9.

Justin Lin Confirms Star Trek Beyond's Title

And tweets a first pic

As we told you this past weekend, the third Star Trek film began production last week in Vancouver. And now we have the closest thing to official confirmation of the news originally shared by Simon Pegg that the new movie is indeed called Star Trek Beyond

It’s all thanks to a tweet from Justin Lin, who is joining the franchise from a successful run on the Fast & Furious films. He stuffed the title into a hashtag that has us wondering whether it’ll be simply known as Star Trek Beyond (as with Star Trek Into Darkness), or if a colon will creep in there somewhere. 

Nothing has been announced about the plot for this new outing for the USS Enterprise and her crew, other than some vague talk of exploration and finally getting to see Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk and co. head out into deep space to truly explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilisations, to boldly... Well, you know the rest.

Pine is back alongside Zachary Quinto as Spock, Karl Urban as Dr. McCoy, Zoe Saldana as Uhura, Pegg (who co-wrote the film with Doug Jung) as Scotty, John Cho as Sulu and Anton Yelchin as Chekov. Sofia Boutella is aboard in some capacity and Idris Elba is strongly rumoured to be playing the villain, though we’ll likely have to wait until, a) Paramount confirms his casting or b) pictures of him leak from the set.

Star Trek Beyond will warp into UK cinemas on July 8 next year.

New Man From U.N.C.L.E. Character Posters Land

A Cavill-cade of spy candy

The svelte spy types of Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. look a lot more like they were born for this character poster business than, say, the Minions. Sure enough, their moment has arrived. Here’s five fashion-forward one-sheets to help us soak up all the pretty. Click to enlarge them. {The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Character Posters}The five poster-ees are Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill), Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer), Alicia Vikander’s Gaby Teller, Elizabeth Debicki as Victoria Vinciguerra and Hugh Grant’s mysterious Mr. Waverly. Between Solo and Kuryakin - and there’s bound to be the odd character curveball – bubbles the kind of tension that comes with having to cross the Iron Curtain to tackle a common enemy. As those great ideological warriors, Red Heat’s Ivan Danko and Art Ridzik, would tell them, sometimes you just gotta get on with it.

Transplanting the 1960s spy series to the big screen and boosting the budget, Ritchie’s version finds Solo forced to team up with his former KGB adversary Kuryakin in the United Network Command for Law Enforcement to take down a mysterious criminal organisation bent on destabilising the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organisation, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. lands in the UK on August 14.
