Gary Oldman Joins CHILD 44 with Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace

Gary Oldman has just signed on to join Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace in Daniel Espinosa's "Child 44".

The Tom Rob Smith novel revolves around a former war hero named Leo Demidov (Hardy) who believes in Stalin's rule in 1950s Soviet Union. He then investigates a series of child murders and is stripped of his rank in result, as the country is trying to protect the illusion of being crime-free. Demidov struggles to find the truth behind the murders and why the government is hiding them. He confides in his wife (Rapace) thinking she is the only person he can really trust, but she is hiding some secrets of her own. Oldman plays the head of police, looking into the government conspiracy.

Oldman and Hardy have worked together on several projects to date. The most iconic being Hardy as Bane and Goldman as Commissioner Gordon in "The Dark Knight Rises". They were also both in the spy-thriller "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and the spaghetti western "Lawless". Both men have exceptional acting chops and I thoroughly enjoy the movies they are in together. Hopefully "Child 44" proves to be no different.

"Child 44" will hit AMC Theatres in 2015.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
