Jonah Hill is in negotiations to play the Riddler in Matt Reeves’ “The Batman,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.Robert Pattinson is set to star as the Dark Knight. Reeves took over the directing gig after Ben Affleck stepped away from the role. Affleck was also expected to play Batman again but then said he would be hanging up the cape for good. Reeves has since described the film as a “defining” and “very personal” story about the Dark Knight, rather than an origin story in the vein of Frank Miller’s beloved “Year One” series.For months now, reports have said Hill was the frontrunner to play the antagonist the Penguin.

We find it hard to keep up with what Jonah Hill looks like on a day-to-day basis, but he's really testing us with this one.
As hard as it might be to keep up with Jonah Hill’s vacillating physique, the ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ actor is currently looking perhaps as slim as he ever has. With a post-gym sweat on, Hill was snapped in LA following looking amazingly trim. The pictures sit in stark contrast to the actor’s hugely increased girth for the movie ‘War Dogs’, in which he starred alongside Miles Teller last year, and for which he piled on the pounds.
<strong>EXCLUSIVE: </strong> Michelle Williams, just nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her turn as the distraught mother in <em>Manchester By The Sea</em>, is in talks to star in what will become Jonah Hill’s directorial debut <em>Mid-90s. </em>The film, about a boy coming of age in Los Angeles in the mid-1990s as he finds his life lessons through his skateboarding buddies, will be produced by Scott Rudin ( <em>Fences</em>) and Eli Bush ( <em>Ex Machina</em>, <em>The Grand Budapest Hotel</em>) with Ken Kao ( <em>Knight Of Cup…</em>
Secret ending? No.Running time: 114 minutes (~2 hours)“War Dogs” is a crime dramedy that’s based on the exploits of arms dealers Efraim Diveroli and David Packouz as they exploit the military procurement system of the US. It stars Johan Hill (Efraim Diveroli), Miles Teller (David Packouz), Ana de Armas (Iz), J.B. Blanc (Bashkim), and Bradley Cooper (Henry Girard). It is rated M-18.“War Dogs” is for anyone who’s ever been in a start-up and used GEBiz (Government Electronic Business) for government contracts. The similarities between the American military procurement system and GEBiz are striking (then again, perhaps all government procurement systems are equally similar) and so is the system for choosing bids (ie, costing trumps all other factors when it comes to determining the winning bid). It’s the story of a pair of opportunistic young men who get in over their heads, and will resonate with all business owners.HighlightsThe entrepreneurial aspectWhat makes “War Dogs” so endearing is the sheer enthusiasm and gung-ho exhibited by the two main characters. Their youth and excitement at being able to punch above their weight class is infectious, and their palpable exuberance is what drives the show forward. Their personal struggles, their bravery in going into literal unfamiliar territory, and their increasing inability to handle the size of their business is a story for all entrepreneurs to heed.The war dogs are underdogsThe titular “War Dogs” (a term for bottom feeders of the military procurement system of America) are also underdogs, since they’re operating on laptops out of a shady office. But because they’re so earnest in their business, we can’t help empathising with them as they beat out larger corporations for bigger and better jobs. They might fail at any time thanks to a multitude of factors, and their raw eagerness is what pushes them through to success. Though what they’re doing is illegal, we can forgive that when we see their sincerity (or at least, forgive it for David, Miles Teller’s character).Honour among arms dealersThere’s a sense of honour among thieves in the film. This may be the world of semi-illegal arms dealers, but when it comes to paying debts and doing what’s right by the people who have helped you, most will come through. The film ends on a bittersweet note, showing us that there is, indeed, honour among arms dealers.Dark humourEphraim (Jonah Hill) and David are in a harsh, unforgiving trade, but the film has them take it in their stride, lightly mocking the sometimes life-threatening situations they find themselves in. They make their money off war, but not once do you feel that they’re profiteering off misery. It’s this casual, light-hearted tone that makes their devious industry palatable to the audience, resulting in a darkly humorous tone for the film.LetdownsA transparent villainUnfortunately, the bad guy of the piece does his heel face turn rather abruptly, necessitating on the nose dialogue to fill in the exposition for his motivation. He seems like a rather cliched choice to have as the final antagonist of the movie, and he ends up being the weakest link in the film.“War Dogs” is a fantastic film that will most likely be one of the underdogs of 2016.Should you watch this at weekend movie ticket prices?

Jonah Hill earned widespread praise for his performance in Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ – but it turns out he suffered for his art. Hill co-starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie and Matthew McConaughey in Scorsese’s acclaimed 2013 take on the real-life tale of corruption, fraud and hedonism in New York’s financial district in the 1980s. As far as the hedonism goes, this meant showing the characters snorting a lot of cocaine – and here’s where Hill ran into some real trouble.
Seth Rogen was in the middle of explaining how Nick Kroll’s villainous character, Douche (you read that right), in the new R-rated animated film Sausage Party evolved from a Jafar-in-Aladdin rip-off to the bro he ultimately became, when the raunch auteur dropped an amazing nugget of pop-culture trivia. “DTF,” the acronym short for “down to you-know-what” made famous by the once-ubiquitous reality stars of MTV’s Jersey Shore, actually originated in Rogen’s 2007 comedy Superbad. “It allowed us to re-appropriate ‘DTF,’ because that is actually from Superbad,” Rogen told Yahoo Movies during a recent in-studio visit (watch above), which seemed to even surprise his Superbad and Sausage Party costar Michael Cera.
Jonah Hill has got himself in trim once again, by the looks of it. The ‘Superbad’ star was papped while out and about in Los Angeles looking pretty much half the size he was last year. While filming the movie 'War Dogs’, Hill had piled on the pounds to play arms dealer Efraim Diveroli opposite Miles Teller.
Jonah Hill is looking like a much slimmer man these days. Hill, who was all smiles, donned a New York Yankees baseball cap, a polo shirt and black jeans. The transformation is shocking when you compare how the This Is the End actor looked almost a year ago on the set of his comedy War Dogs, formerly titled Arms and the Dudes.
‘The Hangover’ trilogy director Todd Philips is back with another madcap vision of decadent young Americans wreaking havoc around the world - only this time, astonishingly, it’s based on true events. ‘War Dogs’ stars Jonah Hill (who’s clearly gained weight for the role) and Miles Teller as a pair of 20-something entrepreneurs trying to get ahead in one of the oldest professions: arms dealership. Set against the backdrop of the US military’s Middle Eastern conflicts of the 2000s, Hill and Teller are Efraim Diveroli and David Packouz, two Miami-based buddies who, according to the official synopsis, “exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts.
