THE PAPERBOY and CUBAN FURY Release Dates
I am already laughing. GREAT cast....Additionally, Studio Canal and Big Talk Pictures have set the salsa dancing revenge comedy (how’s that for a genre?) Cuban Fury for release on March 22nd in the UK and Ireland. Nick Frost plays a burgeoning salsa dancing star alongside Rashida Jones, Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids), Olivia Colman (Hot Fuzz) and Ian McShane. Production begins next week in London, and hopefully we’ll get a US release date announcement soon. Hit the jump to read the press release.
Here’s the press release regarding Cuban Fury:
London, UK, 20th June 2012 – STUDIOCANAL and Big Talk Pictures today announced that CUBAN FURY will be released on 22nd March 2013 in cinemas across the UK & Ireland. Principal photography on the film will begin on 24th June 2012, shooting for 9 weeks around London.
CUBAN FURY stars Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul), Rashida Jones (The Social Network, I Love You, Man), Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids, The Boat that Rocked), Olivia Colman (Hot Fuzz, Tyrannosaur) and Ian McShane (Snow White and the Huntsman, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Sexy Beast).
Beneath Bruce Garrett’s shabby, overweight exterior, the passionate beating heart of a salsa king lays dormant. Only one woman can reignite his Latin fire. Spotlight hits, sweat drips, heels click - Nick Frost IS Cuban Fury.
CUBAN FURY is written by Jon Brown (Miranda, Misfits, Fresh Meat), from an original idea by Nick Frost, and marks the feature film directorial debut of James Griffiths (Up All Night, Free Agents). It is produced by Nira Park and James Biddle (Big Talk), and executive producers are Nick Frost, Matthew Justice and Rachael Prior (Big Talk), Danny Perkins and Jenny Borgars (STUDIOCANAL) and Tessa Ross (Film4).
CUBAN FURY, a Big Talk Pictures production, is co-financed by STUDIOCANAL, Film4 and the BFI Film Fund. International sales will be handled by STUDIOCANAL

Cuban Fury, also starring Ian McShane (Snow White and the Huntsman) as Frost’s dance instructor, opens March 22nd of next year in the UK and Ireland. Hit the jump to check out the video.
Ka-Boom! J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot to Produce Edgar Wright’s ‘Collider,’ From His Own Original Idea | Film School Rejects
How awesome is it to be Edgar Wright right now? First off, he’s finally getting down to brass tacks on his long-teased Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy finale, The World’s End, with best buds Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. After that? He gets to direct another long-desired project, an Ant-Man feature film for Marvel. And, on top of that, the Brit looks to be getting into bed with no less than J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot Productions for a super-secret sci-fi film called Collider, which Abrams and Bad Robot will produce (alongside Wright’s long-time producer, Nira Park).
Deadline Wherever (via /Film) reports that Paramount Pictures has hired Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, Thor, the Old Boy remake, and the hard-to-believe-it’s-happening Jurassic Park IV) to pen the script for the film with Wright (who will also direct) from Wright’s own original idea. Nothing else is known about the project as of now – the only available information is that tantalizing title and the non-surprising revelation that it falls under the sci-fi genre – but all the talent attached is cause enough to be excited (we’ll forgive you for Legend, Protosevich, at least for now). What could this possibly be about? The Large Hadron Collider? The punk band Collider? Movie website Collider? The possibilities are endless.
