Russell Crowe courted by Deadpool creator to play Cable

25 February 2017 11:53 AM, PST | | See recent JoBlo news »

With news regarding the casting of Domino swirling around, the casting of Cable has taken a bit of a backseat. Considering that – sadly – Dolph Lundgren probably isn’t a likely candidate, the filmmakers will have to find some other Hollywood tough guy to take the role. Deadpool creator, Robert Liefeld, has perhaps done the work for them, and has reached out to an actor who, if cast, would... Read More »

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast Masters Of The Universe!!

10 February 2017 11:08 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

We'd like to forget all about the last attempt at a live-action Masters of The Universe movie. Sorry, Dolph! Great hair, though.

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends (Jeremy Scully and I, Mario-Francisco Robles) get together to cast/pitch our dream movies. 

In the past, we've tackled everything from The Batman to the Universal Monsters.

This week, we turn our attention towards the long-gestating cinematic reboot of Masters of The Universe. Jeremy and I grew up on the classic 80s cartoon, and I had a ton of the old action figures. Yet even we knew, as children, that the 1987 movie starring Dolph Lundgren was crap. That's why we'd like to put our own spin on what the reboot should look/feel like.

Over the years, many filmmakers and various studios have tried and failed to get a Masters of The Universe movie off of the ground. »

Dolph Lundgren and ex-wwe star Shad Gaspard to fight aliens in sci-fi horror Welcome to Willits

7 February 2017 11:57 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We don’t just cover movies on Flickering Myth. We also write extensively about professional wrestling. That particular Venn diagram has been crossing over more frequently in the last decade, with John Cena falling in with Judd Apatow’s comedy gang, Dave Bautista playing Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, and, of course, Rock ‘The Dwayne’ Johnson frequently topping the highest grossing actors in the world lists.

Fresh off his real life role of breaking up an armed robbery at a Florida gas station, former WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard – who formed the tag team Cryme Tyme with partner Jtg – is starring, quite aptly, as Dolph Lundgren’s police captain in the “psychological sci-fi horror” Welcome to Willits. Watch the trailer below…

Former WWE pro wrestler, and recent real life hero, Shad Gaspard, will be starring in Welcome To Willits alongside Bill Sage (American Psycho) and Dolph Lundgren (Rocky, Expendables). Directed by Trevor Ryan, »

Oliver Queen Confronts The Bratva In Extended Arrow Promo

2 February 2017 10:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s not too often that Oliver Queen does some globe hopping outside of flashbacks, but when he does, odds are that something important will happen. As such, it’s highly recommended that you don’t miss next week’s episode of Arrow, which is naturally titled “Bratva.”

Now that Tina Boland has been revealed to be, in fact, Dinah Drake and is set to become the next Black Canary, she joins the gang as they head to the other side of the world and wastes no time getting in on the action. Aside from that, I’m interested to see if indeed Oliver’s alliance with Anatoly will become strained and if the latter will ever become KGBeast in this universe.

‘Dead Trigger’ Director Says He’s Still Owed Money

25 January 2017 3:58 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Add director Mike Cuff to the list of people who say they're still owed money by the producers of Dead Trigger after the low-budget zombie film starring Dolph Lundgren fled Mexico last May. Cuff was fired two days into the movie’s shoot in the seaside resort town of Playa del Carmen. It had been Cuff's idea for the film: he was the original director; had secured the rights to the video game it was based on, and had written a script. Two weeks later, the American cast and… »

Arrow Asks “Who Are You?” In Extended Promo

18 January 2017 10:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Aside from a Dolph Lundgren return looming, Arrow fans have much to look forward to with the midseason premiere, “Who Are You?,” being just seven days away. It goes without saying that the anticipation level for this returning episode has been unbelievably high, but the intensity displayed in the freshly released extended trailer certainly kicks it up a notch.

What’s undoubtedly the biggest selling point is the return of Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance or, more likely, some kind of doppelganger. Ever since the current season kicked off, it’s arguable this subject was the most discussed among viewers as theories ran rampant. Some felt vindicated by the first trailer released for this particular episode, as it seemingly pointed to Black Siren being the one to invade the Arrow Cave, but until we get definitive answers, we’ll still keep an open mind.

Dolph Lundgren Will Return To Arrow As Konstantin Kovar

18 January 2017 10:11 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s hardly surprising that popular culture is beginning to respond to the current global political climate with thinly veiled references to topics that are dominating the news. What’s perhaps surprising is that one show which appears to be leading the charge in that respect is Arrow, on The CW. Wasting no time at all in seizing on that which is on the minds of most of the western world, the DC superhero will soon be taking another deep, small-screen dive into his own Russian history.

The popular drama series has long been dropping hints about the ties between wealthy playboy businessman Oliver Queen and Russia, and has gone some way to explaining that these ties involve him trying to join a criminal organization named Bratva, in order to dispose of an influential Russian named Konstantin Kovar (played by Dolph Lundgren). Recently, executive producer Marc Guggenheim highlighted to ComicBook. »

Has Deadpool 2 Finally Found Its Cable?! Can it Be?!

18 January 2017 8:42 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Last night, while we were busy shining a spotlight on some troubling remarks made about Wonder Woman (which you can see by Clicking Here!), someone else was busy planting the seed of another rumor on the net. Ryan Reynolds posted an image on his Instagram account that's got an awful lot of tongues wagging this morning, because everyone's wondering if he just revealed who'll be playing Cable in Deadpool 2.

See, for months, all eyes have been on potential suitors for the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. From actors like Stephen Lang and Ron Perlman throwing their names into the hat, to thespians like Kyle Chandler being mentioned as frontrunners, and fan campaigns for guys like Dolph Lundgren to get the role, it seems everyone's keen to find out who'll eventually land the part. 

Now, thanks to this post by Reynolds, a name that was on nobody's radar is »

Deadpool 2: Is Pierce Brosnan In Contention For Cable Role?

17 January 2017 8:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadpool 2 is currently without an official start date, but that has in no way quelled online speculation from raging across the four corners of the Internet.

The latest nugget has emerged via Ryan Reynolds’ personal Instagram feed (via Screen Rant), after the Merc With a Mouth himself posted a photo of him, Hugh Jackman and Pierce Brosnan pulling the ol’ ‘hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil’ pose. But does this indicate that the former James Bond star is in contention for the role of Cable in the David Leitch-directed sequel?

Bearing the caption ‘Wolvie. Bond. Wade.,” it’s far too soon to tell whether Brosnan is actually in the mix for Deadpool 2, or if this photo is nothing more than a red herring. What we do know is that Fox’s anti-hero sequel is beginning to coalesce following its recent creative setbacks – original director »

VOD Vault #8 – The Good, the Bad & the Dead / Rupture

15 January 2017 6:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Another week, another installment of VOD Vault – taking a look at some on-demand releases that have hit various VOD platforms recently. It’s been a few months since our last installment, so what say we kick off this reboot of sorts with two movies on the opposite ends of the filmic spectrum: low-budget Western-style crime action/drama The Good, the Bad and the Dead and Rupture, the latest film – a sci-fi thriller – from actress Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo).

Stars: Johnny Messner, Dolph Lundgren, Michael Pare, Danny Trejo, Vivica Fox, Natassia Malthe | Directed by Timothy Woodward Jr.

Also know as 4Got10, The Good, The Bad and the Dead is the latest film from actor/director/producer Timothy Woodward Jr., lensed as part of his multi-picture deal with Cinedigm. It’s also one of three films Woodward; screenwriter Sean Ryan and actor Johnny Messner, »

Jean-Claude Van Damme may be back for The Expendables 4

8 January 2017 10:15 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jan 9, 2017

It's a long shot, but a new report hints that Jean-Claude Van Damme might be back for The Expendables action...

There’s a spoiler for The Expendables 2 ahead.

See related  Justice League: Cyborg, Flash, Batman & more in new pic Future DC films will be "hopeful and optimistic" DC Comics movies: upcoming UK release dates calendar The Crow reboot to finally shoot in January

The fourth and final movie in The Expendables series, cunningly going by the title of The Expendables 4 so far, is expected to see many familiar faces return. It’s a fair bet that alongside Sylvester Stallone will be Dolph Lundgren, The Statham and Arnold Schwarzenegger for a start. But also comes a report that suggests Jean-Claude Van Damme is returning to the series.

This’d be something of a stretch, given that Jcvd, er, didn’t make it to the end of The Expendables 2, »

Black Water Sees Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren Joining Forces on a Sub

5 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

2017 has barely kicked off and already action fans are being assured 2018 won’t pull any punches. Or at least, that’s what we’re hoping to get once Black Water is released: a high-octane, kick-ass thriller centered around the latest on screen pairing of Dolph Lundgren and the Muscles from Brussels. Last seen together in The Expendables 2 and the rather stylishly choreographed Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (both in 2012), the newest collaboration between Lundgren and Van Damme, scripted by Chad Law,  starts shooting later this month. In Black Water: A CIA operative (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is imprisoned in a secret black site on board a nuclear submarine. With the help of a new ally (Lundgren) he must make his escape and clear his name before...

Action Thriller Black Water Begins To Take Shape With Jean-Claude Van Damme And Dolph Lundgren

5 January 2017 8:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even if they don’t hold the same clout as, say, Stallone and Schwarzenegger, Van Damme and Lundgren are two names that are often revered in Hollywood’s action scene, and over the years fans have lapped up their on-screen battles in the likes of Universal Soldier and its widely derided sequel, Universal Soldier: Regeneration.

But it appears Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren are ready to let bygones by bygones, for The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the duo has been cast in Black Water, a new action-thriller in which they’ll play on-screen allies for the very first time. No director is attached just yet, but THR reveals that the script by Chad Law revolves around a “deep cover operative (Van Damme) who awakens to find himself imprisoned in a CIA black site on a submarine.” Little is known about Lundgren’s involvement, but we assume his character »

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren to re-team on ‘Black Water’

4 January 2017 11:31 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, the two action stars who first teamed up on Universal Soldier back in the 1990s, are to reunite on screen in a forthcoming action flick named Black Water.

In the film a deep cover operative (Van Damme) awakens to find himself imprisoned in a CIA black site on a submarine. The film will see them stars as onscreen allies for the first time, so reports The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision.

Van Damme is a busy boy as he also has his original Amazon series Jean-Claude Van Johnson, which was picked up for series late last year.

Shooting will start on Black Water, which is set up at Dawn’s Light Media, later this year. Chad LAw wrote the screenplay.

Jcvd and Dolph Lundgren are set to do battle on a submarine in Black Water...

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren will be on the same side for the first time in their action filled careers, with the two almost-iconic action stars will co-star in the upcoming action thriller Black Water. The screenplay was written by Chad Law and the search is on for a director to steer the project.

See related  Kevin Feige on Black Panther, female superhero movie Avengers: Infinity War – the first set picture Thor: Ragnarok: the first official synopsis released

In it, Van Damme will play a deep-cover agent in deep waters: he's being held in a prison that the CIA runs on, of all places, a submarine. There's no word on Lundgren’s character, but we assume he'll be able to tread water.

Van Damme and Lundgren have, of course, appeared on screen together before, »
