If you’ve been looking for Will Smith to play someone a little rougher around the edges than his usual action heroes or inspirational homeless people, look no further. He’s a con man in Focus, a film about…con men. And women.

From the looks of the costume design, he appears to be channeling some hybrid of Patrick Bateman and his Mike Lowery from Bad Boys. He still keeps the Will Smith charm, even when preying on the innocent. The plot deals not just with Smith’s character, but Margot Robbie‘s aspirational con artist, and a whole team of 30 that are in on the swindle.

It doesn’t look like it will change the world, but everyone loves a good heist movie, and everyone loves Will Smith. Ok. MOST people like Will Smith.

When 44-year old Will Smith replaced 40-year old Ben Affleck in Focus last April, 23-year old co-star Kristen Stewart left, citing too large of an age gap (Rupert Sanders is 42). This left the Crazy, Stupid, Love. writer/director duo of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa with the task of finding a hotter 23-year old to play opposite Smith, a better 23-year old. I’d say, they’ve done well.

Margot Robbie, who appears in Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, has signed on to play the fledgling female con artist who teams up with Smith’s more seasoned one. She beat out total oldsters Olivia Munn, Michelle Williams, Jessica Biel and Rose Byrne. (Variety)

Fukunaga Helms Crazy-Sounding Civil War Heist For Focus http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fukunaga-helms-crazy-sounding-civil-war-heist-for-focus/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fukunaga-helms-crazy-sounding-civil-war-heist-for-focus/#comments Wed, 25 May 2011 02:29:37 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=213554 Fukunaga ('Jane Eyre') will helm Focus Feature's 'No Blood, No Guts, No Glory'. Score another four points for a great title. Or "four score," if you will.

I like heist movies, I like hearing my friends’ stories about how strange Civil War reenactments are. So I’m totally digging the idea of a Civil War heist film. Director Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre) will helm Focus Features‘ No Blood, No Guts, No Glory. Score another four points for a badass title. Or “four score,” if you will, and if you’re groaning in front of your screen, I assume you probably won’t.

The film is a fictionalized account of a real life commando mission, in which 20 soldiers and a spy snuck into Georgia for a good ol’ fashioned Southern stealin’. Will they pull off their mission and bring a swift end to the Civil War? This brings up another interesting question: how do you pull off a heist without a computer expert? Every heist film has one. Maybe the computer expert will be really good at abacuses or something.

Fukunaga is co-writing the Black Listed script with Dune remake writer Chase Palmer. (Variety)

the Eagle trailer has landed (nailed it). Starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell, and directed by Kevin Macdonald, it follows a soldier and his slave in 140 A.D. as they go on a quest to retrieve a treasured gold Eagle emblem that Tatum’s father lost 20 years earlier. Well he didn’t so much lose it as it vanished along with himself and his entir legion. That’s a major soldier faux pas–not returning. No wonder Tatum’s character wants to restore his father’s sullied reputation. He’s known as the dude whose dad los the Eagle. Major Trojan wedgies warranted.

The Eagle lands in theaters February 25, 2011. (Apple)
