Lee Child Talks Next Jack Reacher Film

16 September 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Author Lee Child confirms that a sequel to the 2012 film adaptation of his Jack Reacher novel series is in the works, though the first film's director Christopher McQuarrie will probably not be returning.

While the tenth book "One-Shot" was the basis of "Jack Reacher," the upcoming follow-up will be based on the eighteenth novel "Never Go Back". Child tells Empire that particular book was chosen because of both the young and older female lead characters which could increase the film's appeal:

"Any of these books, you look at them and say 'we could do that', but then you look at it and go, 'well, how are we going to do it? They're all very difficult.' [The character Samantha Dayton] convinced them about which book to make for the next movie. It's almost a three-hander in terms of audience appeal - you've got Reacher, you've got the woman sidekick (Major Susan Turner), and then »

Behind The Scenes Clip From Edge Of Tomorrow Showcases Some Fantastic Practical Effects

16 September 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the surface, it may have seemed as though Edge of Tomorrow, Doug Liman’s under-seen cerebral sci-fi from earlier this year, leaned heavily on CGI to bring its time travelling tale to life. However, in this recently-released clip the creative team reveal just how much work went into the film’s practical effects.

Here’s the five-minute video, courtesy of io9:

From the extensive battle sequences to the mechanised power suits, it turns out that a major chunk of Edge of Tomorrow was hand-crafted. Which is refreshing, given that a lot of similar genre pieces would so easily turn to CG effects in lieu of this more realistic approach — we’re looking at you, Oblivion.

Released back in May, Edge of Tomorrow orbits around Tom Cruise’s Major William Cage who repeatedly dies on the battlefield only to wake up at Heathrow airport earlier that morning — think Groundhog Day meets Source Code. »

Author Lee Child Describes Early Story Details For Jack Reacher Sequel

16 September 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Jack Reacher snuck into cinemas back in 2012, there was one audience preconception that Christopher McQuarrie’s big screen adaptation simply couldn’t shake: at 5ft 7in, how could Tom Cruise possibly embody a former military major that stands — in the novels, at least — at 6ft 5in tall? Well, low and behold the actor played the part with conviction and helped turn the once humble project into a bona fide action hit.

Fast forward two years and Paramount Pictures has issued the green light for a direct sequel, with Cruise set to return in the titular role. However, with Christopher McQuarrie departing to direct the next chapter in the Mission: Impossible franchise, ardent fans are wondering exactly who will step in to to direct the imminent sequel.

And though he doesn’t explicitly answer that question in particular, author Lee Child spoke to Empire recently and revealed some early details regarding the follow-up, »

‘Jack Reacher’ Author Says the Movie Sequel Will Have a New Director

16 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Tom Cruise and Oscar-winning writer/director Christopher McQuarrie’s previous collaborations include the action/thriller Jack Reacher, and they are currently working together on Mission: Impossible 5 (which started filming last month). However, according to author Lee Child – creator of the Reacher character – post-production on the fifth Mission: Impossible movie will prevent McQuarrie from being able to direct the Jack Reacher sequel.

Jack Reacher 2, as we’ll call it for now, is going to be based on Child’s novel “Never Go Back”, which is the eighteenth Reacher book published by the author. The story follows Reacher (with Cruise reprising the role in the movie sequel) as he travels to Virginia to meet Major Susan ...

Hrithik Roshan to turn author with book on fitness

16 September 2014 4:40 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Hrithik Roshan probably has the best well toned Greek god like physique in Bollywood. Now as the actor gears up for the release of his next film Bang Bang, alongside Katrina Kaif, we hear that Hrithik Roshan is all set to turn author. In fact sources close to Hrithik Roshan state that while the actor who has always held a good physique in high regard has always been approached by friends and colleagues for tips on attaining a physique like his. Now in answer to their persistent pleas Hrithik is intending on penning a book dedicated to fitness. However, Hrithik's transition from actor to author may take some time, as the source adds, "Though Hritik has been toying with the idea of penning the book, he is not intending to start it any time soon. But he will for sure be writing it." Away from the book, on the film front, »

Let’s Take 5 Minutes to Appreciate ‘Edge of Tomorrow’s Practical Effects

15 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

As you all know, Edge of Tomorrow is the story of a man facing a grueling mid-life crisis who can only save himself by escaping a workday grind where every day poses the exact same set of existential irritations and wide-mouthed aliens who want to blow him into tiny bits. We’ve all been there. The movie required a lot of projectiles and explosions for Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt to run away from (or to), and this B-roll footage (via ScreenSlam) shows the pair doing their own stunts while practical fireballs blaze in the background. It’s tough to say whether Edge of Tomorrow had more practical special effects than other big action flicks (I once saw a car thrown at another car while driving near the Transformers set), but it definitely feels like it. The kind of explosions and stunts they’re pulling off without CGI are really fantastic. The »

Tom Cruise is a Real Life Hero

14 September 2014 5:59 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

It is not uncommon to turn on the television and find Tom Cruise performing some heroic feat in one of his well-known action movies like Top Gun or one of the Mission Impossible films. Most people don.t realize that Cruise had a hand in some real life action as well.

In May of 1995 Cruise found himself in a very troubling situation. He was driving along Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica on a rainy night when he witnessed 23-year-old aspiring actress Heloisa Vinhas being struck by a car. Vinhas was on her way home from her day job as a cashier and was heading to the bus stop when she was hit by an Acura Legend. The driver sped off, but Cruise immediately took action. He ordered someone to call for an ambulance and then he followed it all the way to UCLA medical center where Vinhas received treatment for »

6 Movie Characters Who Should Have Accepted The Ice Bucket Challenge

13 September 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

9gag.com

Between the debate over Scottish independence, 9/11 tributes and the resolution of the Oscar Pistorius trial, you might have missed the most seismic news event of the week: Kim Kardashian finally completed the Ice Bucket Challenge. If proof were needed that the trend has now officially jumped the shark, this was surely it.

You know all about the Als Ice Bucket Challenge by now, and you probably grew tired of the interminable slew of videos featuring witless celebrities showing off their opulent back yards and washboard abs long ago. Nevertheless, it’s still kept its drenched head in the news of late, and that’s no bad thing.

At times, the actual point and purpose of the whole deal – namely that you nominate other people to accept the challenge or donate money to the charity as a forfeit – seemed to take a back seat, but the tangible benefits of »
