Thailand Release of ‘Furious 7′ Halted by Tony Jaa Contract Dispute

27 March 2015 6:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The release of “Furious 7” has been halted in Thailand, home country of one of the film’s stars — martial arts ace Tony Jaa.

Sahamongkolfilm International, one of Thailand’s leading film groups, obtained a court injunction halting the scheduled release of “F7,” which had been set for April 1.

The injunction names Jaa, Universal Pictures and distributor United International Pictures (Fareast) and alleges that Jaa is in breach of a management contract with Sahamongkol that runs until 2023.

Jaa was star of several movies produced or distributed by Sahamongkol – including “Ong Bak” and “Tom Yum Goong” (aka “The Protector” in North America) – while under a long term contract with Sahamongkol as his exclusive talent agent.

Sahamongkol is reported to be seeking $49 million (THB1.6 billion) in compensation, a sum it calculates as the sum of previous investments in launching the star, lost future earnings, and 7.5% interest.

Jaa and Sahamonglol have been in »

Interview: Director Rob Baard talks The Ninja Immovable Heart

24 March 2015 12:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

david j. moore chats with The Ninja Immovable Heart director and star Rob Baard

The endurance of the ninja genre is evident in 2015 with Rob Baard’s debut feature film The Ninja Immovable Heart, currently out on DVD across the Us (and out in the UK as Ninja on April 20). Baard, a 4th degree black belt in ninjutsu, has worked for years building up a ninja-based online universe. With his extensive knowledge of the art of ninjutsu serving as a foundation for his direct-to-video action superhero film, Baard is featured as a captured ninja named Reeve, struggling to unlock his dormant powers. The low budget picture features an extending cameo by top-billed Danny Glover (from the Lethal Weapon franchise), but it is Baard (who serves as writer, director, and producer) who emerges as the real star of the film.

'Masters of the Universe': He-Man's Battlecat Revealed!

8 March 2015 3:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After several years in development, Sony Pictures is finally moving forward with their Masters of the Universe. Sony executive DeVon Franklin revealed through his Twitter account in January that the script by Jeff Wadlow is now complete. During the week, the executive revealed what appears to be our first look at Battlecat in the movie.

Masters of the Universe is based on the animated TV series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, which also spawned the 1987 live action feature Masters of the Universe starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor. No story details have been confirmed at this time and it isn't known if casting is currently under way.

Jeff Wadlow signed on to rewrite the script, which was previously worked on by Alex Litvak & Michael Finch (Predators), Terry Rossio (The Lone Ranger) and Richard Wenk (The Equalizer). Are you excited to see Battlecat in action »

"Masters Of The Universe" Updates

6 March 2015 8:51 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek a new image of 'Battle Cat' from Columbia's developing "Masters Of The Universe 3D" motion picture reboot, currently shopping a fresh screenplay by Jeff Wadlow ("Kick-Ass 2") to interested directors:

"...the new image was revealed on 'Twitter' by DeVon Franklin, senior vice president of production, Columbia Pictures who said in regards to the new feature'...will know more soon. 

"New chairman at Sony, gotta get in sync with the studio. As soon as I know I’ll report back..."

'He-Man' was originally conceived as a series of Mattel action figures, starting production in 1981 and marketed in 1982.

The toys spun-off into a 130-episode syndicated cartoon series.

This was followed by a Marvel Comics series and a feature film, starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man

It’s Guns & Golden Oldies On The Small Screen As ‘The Expendables’ TV Series Announced

6 March 2015 5:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As Expendables 3 star Harrison Ford survives an eye-popping plane crash, more surprise news emerges that the Sylvester Stallone-created brand is TV-bound.

It was thought a female-led movie – The Expendabelles – would be the next chapter for the franchise, but now Fox are putting an “event series” on the slate which will do for small screen icons of old what the films did for the likes of Stallone and Dolph Lundgren.

The definitive Hollywood resurrection man is on producing duties, whilst Shane Brennan, Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward script the concept, which doesn’t sound a million miles away from the tried and tested formula.

Speculation will be rife on who’ll take part, but it’s safe to say Richard Dean Anderson (Macgyver), Mr T (The A-Team) and Lorenzo Lamas (Renegade) might soon be getting a call. I also see Fred Dryer (Hunter) and Dirk “The Face” Benedict being in the mix somewhere. »

Star Wars Actor Ford Injured in Plane Accident in Los Angeles Area

5 March 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

The Expendables Take Aim At TV

5 March 2015 4:08 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With three movies of varying quality and box-office success out there (and more in development), you'd think that Sylvester Stallone would be quite happy with the amount of Expendables in the world. Yet he, along with producer Avi Lerner and Lionsgate have made a deal with the Us Fox network to craft an “event” series (read: along the lines of 24: Live Another Day) based on the gun-toting franchise to hit small screens. But with the change in venue comes a scaled-down line-up: gone are the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews and Dolph Lundgren and here come... Well, we don’t exactly know, as no actors have been so much as wishlisted yet, but Deadline reports that the project will likely be stocked with a Who’s Who of older, iconic telly action types and possibly some of the current crop (the Strike Back team, »

Is This Our First Look At The New Masters Of The Universe Movie?

5 March 2015 10:44 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The planned reboot of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe franchise has hit many stumbling blocks since it was announced way back in 2007. Originally having John Woo attached, development on the project seems to have stalled, and directors and script writers have come on gone over the years, but the movie still seems to be alive and well. Last we heard, Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow was signed as script writer, and now we might have our first look at the project, with producer Devon Franklin (who also shared the above logo a few weeks back) posting what seems to be concept art from the movie to Twitter. For the uninitiated, this is Battle-Cat, He-Man's steed who was completely missing from the 1987 original starring Dolph Lundgren, and I have to admit, he is looking bad-ass.  We're still pretty much in the dark  about the status of the project, »

'Creed' Synopsis Released: Is Rocky Fighting for His Life?

25 February 2015 3:52 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has released the first official synopsis for the Rocky spinoff Creed, which appears to tease that Rocky Balboa's (Sylvester Stallone) days are numbered. Rocky returns to train the grandson (Michael B. Jordan) of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), with the Italian Stallion essentially stepping into the Mickey role played by Burgess Meredith. Take a look at the plot details below, then read on for more on this spinoff.

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there's no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed's legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, »
