We finally have our first look at Sam in his upcoming movie “My Cousin Rachel” in which he will star opposite Rachel Weisz and his “The Riot Club” co-star, Holliday Grainger. Filming is still underway but the movie is set for release in 2017.
My Cousin Rachel will be adapted from Daphne Du Maurier’s gothic romance novel of the same name, about a young Englishman called Philip who inherits his guardian’s Cornish estate. Philip soon finds himself falling for his beguiling cousin Rachel, but his feelings are complicated when evidence suggests that she murdered Philip’s guardian and is only showing an interest in Philip to steal his inheritance.

We hope you all like the new look. We still have a few things to tweak here and there but feel free to let us know of any errors so we can get on it quicker. Thank you for visiting the site!
Universal has released the first trailer to the upcoming “The Huntsman: Winter’s War”. Sam’s character, William, from “Snow White and the Huntsman” is due to make a return but we have yet to learn the role he is playing in the spin-off as he is not featured in either the character promo poster or the trailer below.
The movie is directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who was nominated for an Oscar for the original “Snow White and the Huntsman” as a visual effects supervisor, and set to open in theaters on April 22, 2016.
Sam posted a picture on his instagram yesterday along with a note stating that filming has begun for “Their Finest Hour and a Half”. The movie is directed by Lone Scherfig who had previously worked with Sam on “The Riot Club” and he will be starring with Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy.
The film is described as “a romantic comedy with a difference set in the early 1940s” and a “portrayal of a young woman screenwriter finding her way in matters of life, death and the heart.” Read the official synopsis below and get excited! We will post more information (and pictures hopefully, lots of it) as soon as they become available so keep checking back.
HANWAYFILMS.COM – With London emptied of men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole lands herself a job writing copy for propaganda films that need “a woman’s touch”. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime.
With the country’s morale at stake, Catrin, Buckley and a colourful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin discovers there is as much drama, comedy and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.

Sam Claflin is being eyed for one of the starring roles in “Star Wars: Rogue One,” while Riz Ahmed is in talks to join the cast as well, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
Disney and the actors’ reps had no comment.
Felicity Jones and Ben Mendelsohn are set to star in “Rogue One,” which was recently revealed to be a heist actioner involving a group of resistance fighters who unite to steal the plans to the Death Star.
Gareth Edwards is directing the film, which will take place between the events of Episode III, “Revenge of the Sith,” and the original “Star Wars” film, “A New Hope.”
While Claflin does not have the role yet, he is the frontrunner for one of the ensemble roles. He has a lot of experience as a supporting player in blockbusters ranging from “Snow White and the Huntsman” to “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “The Hunger Games,” but he is being eyed for a more substantial role in “Rogue One.”
“Star Wars: Rogue One” will be released Dec. 16, 2016.
Claflin and Ahmed, best known for “Four Lions” and “Nightcrawler,” are both repped by CAA.
