Former cop and Gangster Squad scribe Will Beall will script the Logan’s Run remake that director Nicolas Winding Refn will do with Ryan Gosling. … Vulture reports that Diego Gonzalez Boneta has bagged the male lead in Rock of Ages, the Adam Shankman-directed musical based on the Broadway show. Actually, he’s not set yet, because New Line brass has to approve him. But he’s Shankman’s choice to star alongside Julianne Hough and a supporting cast that will include Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Mary J. Blige and maybe Amy Adams. So it’s looking good for the young actor. … Phase 4 Films acquired North American rights to Lucky, the Gil Cates Jr.-directed pic that stars Colin Hanks as a young lottery winner who uses his windfall to pursue the girl of his dreams, trying his best to hide his passion for serial killing.
