Brie Larson is set to play the first woman to run to be President of the United States.

The 'Kong: Skull Island' star will take on the role of feminist icon Victoria Woodhull, who was the first female to run for office in American in 1872, in the forthcoming Amazon movie, according to Deadline.

The 27-year-old actress will take on producing duties alongside Lloud Braun and Andrew Mittman and 'The Libertine' writer Ben Kolpit is working on the script.

Woodhull was one of 10 children who grew up in the rural frontier town of Homer, Ohio, to illiterate parents.

She left school aged 11 and was married by 15, but founded a newspaper in New York City and went on to become a leading figure in the American suffragist movement. She rallied against the hypocrisy of society tolerating married men who had mistresses and after her first husband cheated on her.

She first ran for office aged 32 in 1872 and then again in 1884 and 1892.

A director is yet to be attached to the movie and the production schedule is being kept tightly under wraps.

The role is fitting Larson, who is vocal on women's issues and has openly supported victims of sexual violence, portraying one in her Best Actress Oscar-winning performance for 'Room'.

Brie recently said there needs to be more female directors in Hollywood.

She said: \"I love that we're seeing stronger women on the screen - but I don't think that's the end of this conversation. Because I think that we're more than just being strong or just being mothering. I think there's a whole lot that goes on in between for us to explore.

\"I think the best place to start would be more female film directors - more female filmmakers of every different type of race - and we need to get out of these binary ways of thinking.\"

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Film legend Greta Garbo's former longtime apartment in New York City is up for sale for nearly $6 million.

The New York Times reports (http://nyti.ms/2nFMaXm ) that the Swedish-born star's seven-room Manhattan co-op overlooking the East River is on the market for $5.95 million, with monthly maintenance of nearly $9,100.

The co-op is located on the fifth floor of the 14-story Campanile building, located on East 52nd Street. Garbo lived there from 1954 until her death in 1990 at age 84.

The apartment is being sold by the family of Gray Reisfield, Garbo's niece and sole heir to the actress's estate. Reisfield and her husband occupied the co-op from around 1992 to 2013 before relocating to San Francisco.

Garbo was one of Hollywood's biggest stars in the 1920s and '30s.

Laura Dern is in talks to star with Kristen Stewart in the forthcoming biopic 'JT Leroy'.

The 50-year-old actress - who is currently on screen in HBO sitcom 'Big Little Lies' - will join the Twilight alumnus in the title that will tell the story of Savannah Knoop, who tricked the rich, famous and elite in Hollywood and the literary and fashion worlds into believing she was a transgender man known as Jeremiah \"Terminator\" LeRoy, or JT LeRoy for short.

JY LeRoy was, in fact, a literary persona created by Knoop's sister, the writer Laura Albert, in her 1999 debut novel 'Sarah'.

For six years Knoop would parade herself as LeRoy and kept her real identity under wraps while her sister Albert continued to write LeRoy's works and give interviews as LeRoy in email and on the phone.

Then in 2005, The New York Times outed the pair and revealed that LeRoy, who always donned a black hat, blonde wig and sunglasses, was a fictional persona.

Knoop retold their story in her 2008 autobiography 'Girl Boy Girl: How I Became JT LeRoy' and Justin Kelly has adapted the script for the upcoming movie and he's also is attached to direct.

Stewart, 26, is set to portray Knoop and if Dern takes the role, she'll star as Albert.

Dern rose to fame in the 1986 cult classic 'Blue Velvet' and went onto star in romantic thriller 'Wild At Heart' with Nicholas Cage (1990) and the original 'Jurassic Park' movie (1993) alongside Sam Neil.

The actress was last seen on screen mothering Reese Witherspoon in 'Wild' but has a busy 2017, with parts in Disney's 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' and Jennifer Fox's drama 'The Tale'.

Jake Gyllenhaal \"often\" thought of his late grandfather when making his new movie 'Life'.

The 36-year-old actor stars in the sci-fi thriller as Dr. David Jordan and admitted he drew inspiration from his surgeon granddad Samuel Achs, who was a major influence on his life, when he was filming his role.

Speaking to Australia's Herald Sun newspaper, he shared: \"Though it's not a full homage, there's a piece of him in there. I thought of him often while I was making this movie.\"

Dr. Achs died three years ago and his famous grandson is convinced the brilliant surgeon felt that Jake and his actress sister Maggie Gyllenhaal hadn't chosen real careers.

However, Jake his sure he was proud of their successes nonetheless.

He added: \"As brilliant as he was, I don't ever know if he considered my profession a true one. But I know that he is proud of me regardless.\"

Despite his success in Hollywood, the star says his real passion is musical theatre and singing but admitted he lacked confidence to follow his first love within the arts.

He continued: \"I grew up singing; I grew up with my mother taking my sister and I to musical theatre. So it's a world I love.

\"I just happened to get lucky making movies and never had an opportunity, or maybe the confidence, to step out and do what I really love the most.\"

Jake stars alongside Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson in 'Life', in which the trio play a team of scientists aboard the International Space Station who battle an aggressive extraterrestrial organism from Mars.

Mike Epps is to appear in 'Acts of Violence' with Bruce Willis.

The 46-year-old American stand-up comedian-turned-actor is set to star in the new action film, being made by Emmett, Furla and Oasis Films studios.

Epps will play the role of bad guy Max Livingston, who is in charge of a human-trafficking ring and is pursued by Detective Avery, played by Willis.

The film marks the second collaboration between Epps and Willis as they were last together on set of the Eli Roth-directed 'Death Wish' late last year.

They join Cole Hauser, Shawn Ashmore, Sophia Bush and Melissa Bolona who have also been cast in the film, under the helm of Brett Dono.

Principal photography is expected to start next week, commencing on March 27.

The film is based on some vigilante brothers who infiltrate human trafficking ring to extricate a loved one.

Randall Emmett, George Furla and Tony Callie are producing, with Brandon Hogan, Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones as executive producers on the movie.

Denise Richards and Mischa Barton are to star in 'The Toybox'.

The 'Wild Things' star and 'The O.C.' alumnus have joined forces for the supernatural thriller which is being directed by horror master Tom Nagel.

Jeff Denton - who starred in Nagel's 2016 horror 'Clown Town' - has penned the script with the director and joins Denise and Mischa in the movie which is already in production.

'Clown Town' followed a group of friends who get stranded in a seemingly deserted town and find themselves stalked by a gang of violent psychopaths dressed as clowns, and the story-line behind 'Toybox' takes a similar turn of events.

It follows a family who embark on a cross-country trip but they become stranded in the desert and get caught up in a series of sinister supernatural occurrences.

Denise, 46, plays a mother trying to protect her children, while 31-year-old Mischa's character is a lone traveler, who joins the group and gets caught up in the evil events.

The director's brother Brian Nagel, Greg Violand, Matt Mercer, Malika Michelle, David H. Greathouse, and Katie Keene make up the cast.

'Clown Town' producer Jeff Miller will take on producing duties with the Nagel brothers.

Former Bond girl Denise - whose ex-husband is Charlie Sheen - will be seen later this year in crime drama 'American Violence' in which she takes the leads as psychologist Dr. Amanda Tyler who is given the opportunity to interview death row inmate Jackson Shea (Kaiwi Lyman).

Michael Shannon is the frontrunner to play Cable in 'Deadpool 2'.

The 42-year-old actor has reportedly been the top choice of movie studio Fox for the last week and there appears to be a strong possibility he will ultimately star opposite Ryan Reynolds in the much-anticipated sequel.

The first 'Deadpool' movie exceeded all box-office expectations, grossing as much as $783 million worldwide, and the follow-up is poised to feature other characters from the central character's corner of the X-Men universe, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The casting of the part of Cable has been one of the main discussion points among fans of the first film - and the intense demand for Michael's versatile acting talents is one possible barrier to him accepting the job.

The Oscar-nominated star recently signed on for the indie movie 'What They Had', which is set to shoot this spring, while 'Deadpool 2' is scheduled to begin shooting in Vancouver, Canada, during the summer.

Meanwhile, Brianna Hildebrand claimed recently that her on-screen character will be even \"cooler\" in 'Deadpool 2'.

The 20-year-old actress made her feature film debut as Negasonic Teenage Warhead in 'Deadpool', and she has admitted to being thrilled at the prospect of reprising the role.

Brianna said: \"I'm very excited. [I've] just [seen] some ideas, nothing that's concrete or anything. But I think it's cool that she's grown and matured and she still has so much of this essence of a punk kid.\"

Brianna also claimed she connected with her character so well because she could relate to the \"young teenage angst\" that Negasonic displays.

She shared: \"I felt so close to Negasonic in that she reminded me so much of myself. Like young, teenage, angsty like p***ed off Brianna is who she reminded me of.

\"It was just like, 'Oh! She's so cute. I get her, you know?' So yeah. That was super exciting to see that people liked her too because it felt like people liked me, or the part of me in there somewhere.\"

Idris Elba has just started his first film-directing job.

The 44-year-old actor has kickstarted his new project 'Yardie' - a forthcoming big screen adaptation of the 1992 novel of the same name - and is determined to use the previous work of his inspirations Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg to create an engaging piece of cinematography with the help of \"good actors\".

Speaking to Digital Spy, he said: \"I've just started my first film-directing job. I'm doing an adaptation of a book called 'Yardie', the novel by Victor Hedley. It's actually a smaller capsule story within the story of 'Yardie'. It's about a boy who comes from Jamaica and finds himself in London, being a naughty boy. Because it's called 'Yardie' you might expect it to be a violent film, and to some degree it is, but it's got a human heart and soul. I'm there now, I've started directing it now - we're in pre-production. I'm influenced by beautiful cinematography, the Spielbergs, the Scorseses of the world. The Spike Lees, the Paul Thomas Andersons - what they're all good at, those directors, is getting actors to be very truthful in the moment. I'm an actor, so I want good acting in my film.\"

The 'Luther' star is convinced his movie will having a last effect on the viewers and may even encourage them to visit Jamaica.

He explained: \"You're going to see a muscular, dynamic film that means something to people. I want people to come out of the film and say 'Hmm, I feel like going to Jamaica now!' That's the idea.\"
