Josh Duhamel and Alice Eve have joined Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino in Beyond Deceit, a legal thriller that will mark the directorial debut of screenwriter Shintaro Shimosawa.

Glen Powell, who will appear in Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Scream Queens, and Leah McKendrick are also joining the cast, which already includes Malin Akerman and Byung-hun Lee.

Duhamel is stepping into the shoes previously worn by Dan Stevens, who dropped out due to a conflict with Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

Duhamel will now star as an ambitious young lawyer who takes on a big case against a ruthless executive of a pharmaceutical company, only to find himself drawn into a murder case in which he is the prime suspect. Eve portrays his wife.

The script was written by Adam Mason and Simon Boyes with a rewrite by Shimosawa.

Jonathan Senger and Ellen Wander are producing.

Duhamel last starred with Emmy Rossum and Hilary Swank in You’re Not You and is now on TV starring in CBS’ Battle Creek, the new cop show from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. He is repped by ICM Partners, John Carrabino Management and Hansen Jacobson.

Eve last shot thriller Criminal, from Millennium Films, in which she stars alongside Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Costner and Gal Gadot. She is due to reprise her role as Carol in Star Trek 3 and has Neil LaBute‘s Dirty Weekend premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival. She is repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment. [Source]

If you enjoyed “Battle Creek” last week, the good news is that there is plenty more to come. Russ Agnew and Milt Chamberlain have already become an unlikely but entertaining partnership, and it will be interesting to see where this story goes from here.

We already like the premise for Sunday night’s new episode “Syruptitious”: After all, how many different opportunities do you really have to watch a TV show themed almost entirely around someone being drowned in maple syrup? Nope, this is not just some pancake lover’s dream come true; it is actually the premise for the next new episode.

1. The investigation begins – What we enjoy most about this video is simply that we get to find out more about the case, and we love any and all references to Josh Duhamel’s character and basketball. Anything to remind us that his name is basically the rhyming version of Wilt Chamberlain.

2. A difference of opinion – We’re glad to see more of Kal Penn on this episode already, and in this particular preview, we see that he and Milt are starting to get a rapport. Also, Milt and Russ clearly have different methods of how to deal with him.

To say that international broadcasters were hot for new cop drama Battle Creek would be an understatement.

The series, which premiered March 1 on CBS, brings together the critical cache of Breaking Bad‘s Vince Gilligan, who first developed the show back in 2002, with the mainstream commercial track record of David Shore, creator of global hit House M.D. So it was a given that Sony Pictures TV, which is selling Battle Creek worldwide, would have little problem convincing international broadcasters to get onboard.

Sure enough, Sony announced March 6 that the show has sold out worldwide, with deals for more than 100 territories, including RTL for Germany, TF1 in France, Shaw Media in Canada, Globo TV in Brazil and online streaming service iQiyi in China.

“Two of television’s best storytellers have come together to create a great buddy cop story,” said Keith LeGoy, president of international distribution for Sony Pictures Television in a statement. Battle Creek had a strong debut this week in the U.S., performing especially well with a broad audience, so we anticipate viewers around the world will find this series equally engaging.” [Source]

Did you enjoy the premiere of “Battle Creek” on CBS Sunday night? We certainly did. It is enough of a traditional cop show to feel familiar, but you’ve got two great leads in Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters to go along with a tone that allows for just a little bit of comedy. There’s some potential here for this to be the sort of series that sticks around for a long time, but it will depend ultimately on the ratings that come out tomorrow.

What we can say for now is that we absolutely love the title for the next new episode “Syruptitious.” We’re going to celebrate any time that we have a cheesy pun like this. The reason that this title is such is because maple syrup is going to be a huge theme in the latest investigation. Take a look at the synopsis below:

“Special Agent Milt Chamberlain and Det. Russ Agnew go undercover as distillers to infiltrate the world of Battle Creek’s maple syrup cartels when a murder victim is found to have drowned in the gooey breakfast condiment. Meanwhile, Det. Font White goes to war with his medical marijuana dealer.“

We have to say first and foremost that we’re not entirely sure that we ever imagined the words “maple syrup cartels” being used next to each other once in our entire life. Yet, we very much approve of it after the fact.

Hopefully, we’re going to see more entertaining moments on the show moving forward, as it is starting to be clear that Milt is going to be sticking around for a little while. We’ll have some further news soon. [Source]

Episode 1 – The Battle Creek Way

Josh Duhamel and Ernie Hudson, who last worked together opposite Hilary Swank and Loretta Devine in the ensemble drama You’re Not You from eOne, are coming together again in the baseball drama The Wrong Stuff, based on the bestselling memoir by ex-pitcher Bill “Spaceman” Lee and Richard Lally. The film is being directed by Brett Rapkin and produced by Stephen Nemeth, co-produced by Betsy Stahl and executive produced by Ron Shelton (White Men Can’t Jump) and Eric Gagne. Rapkin also penned the script. Shooting is expected to begin next week in Los Angeles.

Set in the 1980s, the film chronicles the downward spiral of Major League pitcher Lee, a hot-tempered, self-serving madman unable to see himself as anything other than a baseball player. Duhamel is cast as the volatile Lee. Hudson will portray Joe, the only black player and first baseman for the all-white, French Canadian Longeuil Senators amateur club. Hudson’s character, an experienced player with 30 years in the sport, is the stabilizing force on the scrappy team.

Duhamel starred in several of the Transformers films and also stars in the CBS crime drama series Battle Creek, which premieres Sunday. Hudson is best known, perhaps, for his turn in the beloved comedy Ghostbusters. [Source]

“Battle Creek” is a new take on the buddy-cop genre, starring Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters. Hailing from “Breaking Bad’s” Vince Gilligan and “House M.D.” vet David Shore, the series bows March 1 on CBS.

The quirky drama is set in Battle Creek, Mich., population 50,000, where a jaded detective, Russ Agnew (Winters), reluctantly partners with charming FBI Agent Milt Chamberlain (Duhamel) to solve crimes. Shore, who serves as showrunner and exec producer, says the setting is one of the ways the show differentiates itself from others of its kind.

“In the writers room, if we came up with an idea that would be a great ‘Law & Order’ episode, we just didn’t do it,” Shore, who worked on the famed procedural show for two years, said on a recent conference call with Variety.

Shore explained that while the writers are looking for ideas more specific to a small community, that doesn’t belittle the scale of the storylines. “If anything, there are higher stakes because everything’s a little more personal,” he said.

The pilot was created by Gilligan, who’s also at the helm of “Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul,” but since penning the script, Shore has taken over the reins for the most part. Gilligan “launched us, and protected us,” Shore said.

Winters explained he took the role because the show felt fresh. He said, “You’re got these two characters together who have a lot of respect for each other, but they’re not buddies, to say the least.”

Duhamel, on the other hand, did strike a comparison to another buddy-cop show. “Turner and Hooch,” Duhamel joked, referring to Tom Hanks’ 1989 puppy dog detective comedy.

Without missing a beat, Winters quipped, “Josh would be Hooch.” [Source]
