Collin Chou, best known for his role as Seraph from The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, will play Edwin Chiu in the Netflix film, The Half of It, written and directed by Alice Wu. The project, the follow up to Wus 2004 film, Saving Face, the pic navigates the struggles of an immigrant family against the backdrop of an Americana teenage angst romantic comedy. The plot is said to be a modern day Cyrano-meets-Pygmalion centered on a shy, introverted, Chinese-American, straight-A student who finds herself helping the school jock woo the girl they both secretly love. In the process, each teaches the other about the nature of love as they find a connection in the most unlikely of places. Chous Edwin Chiu is struggling immigrant father of Ellie Chu (Leah Lewis) who was a highly educated engineer whose promising career was derailed by his poor English skills when he moved to America. Now Edwin acts as station manager of the local train depot, a poorly paying job that lacks the upward mobility he once hoped it would provide. Anthony Bregman of Likely Story, M. Blair Breard, and Wu are producing the pic with executive producers Erica Matlin and Greg Zuk. Chou is repped by Global Artists Agency and Convergence Entertainment.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina actress Abigail Cowen has booked supporting role in Lionsgate and Kingdom Studios faith-based film, I Still Believe, joining K.J. Apa, who will play Christian music megastar Jeremy Camp, as well as Gary Sinise, Shania Twain, Britt Robertson, Melissa Roxburgh, and Nathan Dean Parsons. Terry Serpico (Army Wives) has also joined the cast. Jon Erwin and Andrew Erwin are directing the pic, which is based on the true-life story of Camp and his remarkable journey through love and loss. Jon Erwin and Jon Gunn penned the screenplay. Kevin Downes is producing the pic along with the Erwins under their Kingdom banner. Cowen, who currently co-stars as Weird Sister Dorcas in the Netflix Sabrina series, is repped by Paradigm and Link Entertainment. Serpico, repped by Buchwald, has appeared on shows like Law & Order, Rescue Me, and CBS The Inspectors.

Green Book actor Jim Klock has been added to the cast of The 24th, a historical drama, which is currently being directed by Kevin Willmott in North Carolina. The film stars Empires Trai Byers, who also co-wroRead More – Source

Top Gun: Maverick Planning To Touch Down At San Diego Comic-Con

EXCLUSIVE: We are hearing buzz that Paramount and Skydance Media will be flying Top Gun: Maverick do..

EXCLUSIVE: We are hearing buzz that Paramount and Skydance Media will be flying Top Gun: Maverick down to San Diego Comic-Con for some kind of presence.

Non-studio sources tell us that cast from the pic are already booking hotels and tickets. Tom Cruise hasnt been confirmed exactly yet, but it wouldnt be a shocker if he showed up. Hes very good about event-izing his pics and made a big appearance at Paramount/Skydances Mission: Impossible – Fallout CinemaCon session last year. Top Gun: Maverick shot in San Diego last summer, so its a pretty special place for all those involved in the Paramount-Skydance production. Today CineEurope attendees in Barcelona were the first to see two minutes of footage from the film, which opens on June 26, 2020. Note things could always change. We heard very early on that Dwayne Johnsons Fighting With My Family was going to Sundance with him in tow, however, it wasnt until the New Year that he was fully committed given his working schedule.

The last time Paramount and Skydance made a splash at Comic-Con was with the 2016 movie Star Trek: Beyond which made its world premiere there with an outdoor screening accompanied by the pics talent and a live orchestra playing the score throughout the movie.

In a big way Paramount was one of the first studios to venture down and leverage the fanboy population at SDCC when they were still releasing the Marvel movies, i.e. Iron Man, Thor, etc during the early aughts.

The 28-year-old, who starred as Tamwar Masood, has the lead role in Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis upcoming comedy Yesterday and will next appear alongside Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in Oscar bait drama The Aeronauts.

But with new show boss Kate Oates bringing back other beloved characters such as Bianca Butcher and Sean Slater, would Himesh be down for a return to the square after last being mentioned in February 2019, when Tamwar called Mick Carter to announce he and Nancy are engaged?

Well, yes and no.

Himesh told Metro.co.uk that there would only be one story that would allow him to consider a return to the square: If we all came back, the family who originally joined in 2007.

If we came back and we were the main storyline for a week.

But when pressed if he would be happy to therefore return if it was just for one week, he added: I am not saying I would definitely be happy to do it. But hypothetically speaking, yes.
