First looks: Taron Egerton in Eddie the Eagle & The Secret in Their Eyes
The first look at KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE's Taron Egerton as Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards from the upcoming biopic has landed online, as well as the first image from Billy Ray's THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES remake.
Production is underway on EDDIE THE EAGLE, and yesterday Taron Egerton's co-star Hugh Jackman (who is playing Edwards' trainer Chuck Berghorn) shared an image on his Instagram of Egerton as the British skier. LOCK, STOCK & TWO SMOKING BARRELS actor Dexter Fletcher is directing the film from a script by Simon Kelton and Sean Macaulay, and Matthew Vaughn is attached to the project as a producer.
Next up is the first official image from THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES featuring Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and the thriller also stars Nicole Kidman, Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) and Michael Kelly (House of Cards). Director Billy Ray's (SHATTERED GLASS) new movie is a remake of the Juan José Campanella's 2009 Oscar-winning Argentinean film EL SECRETO DE SUS OJOS, which was based on the Eduardo Sacheri novel La pregunta de Sus Ojos. You can check out the first image below, as well as the official synopsis.
A tight-knit team of rising FBI investigators – Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Jess (Julia Roberts), along with their District Attorney supervisor Claire (Nicole Kidman) – is suddenly torn apart when they discover that Jess’s teenage daughter has been brutally and inexplicably murdered.
Now, thirteen years later, after obsessively searching every day for the elusive killer, Ray finally uncovers a new lead that he’s certain can permanently resolve the case, nail the vicious murderer, and bring long-desired closure to his team. No one is prepared, however, for the shocking, unspeakable secret that will reveal the enduring, destructive effects of personal vengeance on the human soul.
Interweaving past and present, this deeply layered mystery explores the murky boundaries between justice and revenge, and asks the question: how far would you go to right an unfathomable wrong?
While EDDIE THE EAGLE currently doesn't have a release date, THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES is scheduled to be in theaters on October 23, 2015.
