Written, directed, and starring Gervais, along with Eric Bana and Vera Farmiga, the movie follows a struggling New York-based radio journalist whose arrogance and decadent lifestyle has hindered his career. With his job on the line, he fakes front-line war reports from the comfort of his hideout above a Spanish restaurant in Queens. That sounds like a pretty great premise. “Special Correspondents” arrives on Netflix on April 29th.
Warner Bros. have amended their release schedule and pushed Guy Ritchie’s take on King Arthur from its original date of July 22, 2016 back to February 17, 2017. There’s been no explanation for the move, other than what we can surmise; either extra time is needed in post, or they got really, really frightened of being up against Star Trek Beyond and Ice Age: Collision Course.

Formula One racer Mark Webber wants Eric Bana to play him in a movie. The Australian actor is known for his roles in “Hulk,” “Munich” and “Star Trek.”
Webber’s new autobiography, titled “Aussie Grit,” which was released on July 1, details his 14-year racing career with nine Grand Prix wins. When asked by CNN who he wants to play him in the film about his life, the racing driver simply said, “Eric Bana.”
Bana has yet to comment whether or not he is interested in playing Webber in a biopic. Currently, he is filming Guy Ritchie’s “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur,” which is set to be released on July 22, 2016.
In 2016, Bana will star in at least four films, which include “Special Correspondents,” “The Finest Hours” and “The Secret Scripture.” The last film the Australian actor starred in was the 2014 horror film, “Deliver Us from Evil.”
In 2013, Bana played a real-life character in the war film “Lone Survivor,” which was based on a 2007 nonfiction book of the same title. He played Lieutenant Commander Erik S. Kristensen with Mark Wahlberg as Marcus Luttrell, Taylor Kitsch as Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, Emile Hirsch as Danny Dietz and Ben Foster as Matthew Axelson.
The 2016 biopic “Elvis & Nixon” was supposed to feature Bana as the late Elvis Presley, but he dropped out of the film. The role will be played by “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” actor Michael Shannon opposite “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey as the late Richard Nixon.
Years ago, Bana was also rumoured to play the late Steve Irwin in a film, but recently, it was reported that “X-Men” star Hugh Jackman is being considered for the role. In September, both Bana and Jackman attended the annual Red Ball at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne, Australia, Herald Sun reports.
