     January 8, 2014


After starring in the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, John Goodman is set to join Paramount’s remake of The Gambler.  Rupert Wyatt is set to direct the picture which features Mark Wahlberg in the title role.  James Toback scripted the original 1974 version starring James Caan, and William Monahan penned a draft of the remake, which sees “a literature professor whose gambling addiction lands him in hot water with his girlfriend, his mother and some unsavory gangsters.”  Goodman stars as “a Jewish loan shark, to whom Wahlberg finds himself indebted.”  Brie Larson, Jessica Lange, Michael K. Williams and Travis Tope also star. (Via The Wrap)
