Appian Way and Pearl Street Films are now in pre-production on the Warner Bros. Pictures crime-drama feature film “Live By Night”, which is based on the novel by Dennis Lehane. Casting calls have gone out for the first roles to be cast. Ben Affleck will play the lead role in the film as well as produce and direct. Leonardo DiCaprio will also produce. Shooting will begin mid-September 2013 and will take place in Boston, where additional principal actor casting will take place. The stand-ins and extras will be hired throughout production.
After a fierce bidding war with Warner Bros. Pictures and Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Appian Way, Paramount Pictures and Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment have acquired movie rights to the Max Brooks novel “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War.” Principal actor casting is currently taking place in Los Angeles, with additional casting to happen in the UK.
