Angelina Jolie is being considered to direct the female-fronted superhero movie Captain Marvel, according to Collider. Disney-owned Marvel Studios has hired two high-profile female screenwriters, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Nicole Perlman and Inside Out’s Meg LeFauve, to oversee the film.

Liam Neeson is to co-produce A Mad and Wonderful Thing, is a romantic thriller about an IRA sniper based on Mark Mulholland’s novel of the same name.

Tom Hardy is lined up to make three more Mad Max movies, after the completion of Mad Max: Fury Road. An interview with Esquire magazine – which does not quote Hardy directly about any sequels -- claims: “He’s attached to a further three Mad Max films”. But Hardy then says “Everything’s based on figures and how things are perceived. Inevitably, it’s a business” – which suggests that his Fury Road contract contains options for future movies depending on commercial outcomes, rather than confirmed green lights of future productions.

 The world’s oldest film director, Manoel de Oliveira, has died at the age of 106. The Portuguese film-maker began his career in 1931 with a silent documentary about Porto, the country’s second biggest city, and went on to win two career Golden Lions from the Venice film festival as well as an honorary Palme d’Or from Cannes.





 In his final three decades de Oliveira became one of Portugal’s most well-known film-makers for movies including The Uncertainty Principle and The Satin Slipper. He also worked with international stars such as John Malkovich and Catherine Deneuve in The Convent and Voyage to the Beginning of the World with Marcello Mastroianni.
