Leonardo DiCaprio in second “J. Edgar” pic – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Leo looks properly formidable. Naomi looks subservient. Now we’re itching to see some actually footage so we can start analyzing dialogue, accents and other factors that will go towards selling Clint Eastwood’s period biopic “J. Edgar.”
Warner Bros. continues to tease the drama, which is sidestepping the usual fall film festival circuit in favor of a November launch. While an early image of Leonardo DiCaprio as iconic FBI founder J. Edgar Hoover was released as part of EW’s Fall Movie Preview, we just received another official movie still from the studio showing Naomi Watts in character as Hoover’s trusted secretary, Helen Gandy.
Scope it below:
Eastwood’s “J. Edgar” was penned by “Milk” writer and Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black. It co-stars Armie Hammer of “The Social Network,” and reportedly covers multiple decades in Hoover’s administrative reign.
As of right now, the film of not expected to play any festivals ahead of its Nov. 9 limited release (it then goes wide on Nov. 11). But given Eastwood’s economic methods of filmmaking, I’ve no doubt the film is finished and ready to be shown. We’re getting anxious to see the finished product, and with that cast in place, we hope it lives up to some of the director’s best.
