Reese Witherspoon's shedding her girl-next-door image! The actress covers the October issue of Vogue, where she opens up about her career, inspiration and a few upcoming sex scenes. "It’s not that the roles dried up," she tells the mag, referencing her brief break from the spotlight. "They just weren’t as dynamic or as interesting as anything I felt I could do."Witherspoon also says that she was turned away from certain parts because of her sweet image. One director -- who she will not name -- wouldn't even see the actress because he said she was too "Southern and sweet and huge."That's when Reese decided that she would create the characters and movies she wanted to be a part of. The New Orleans native -- who has recently produced flicks such as "Wild," "Don't Mess With Texas" and "Gone Girl" -- likes surprising people. "When people underestimate me, »

Secrets and Lies star Martin Henderson has given his take on the upcoming Us remake.
The original Australian version of the murder mystery series will debut on Channel 5 in the UK tomorrow night.
Henderson plays Ben Gundelach - a family man who stumbles across the body of a murdered boy - and told Digital Spy that he has some concerns about the Us series expanding the Secrets and Lies concept from six episodes to ten.
"I thought the way it was structured over six was really good for this kind of material," he said.
"With a thriller, you're going to have your red herrings, as different suspects are thrown up as possible culprits. You can only explore that for so long - if you do that more than a few times, it starts to get a little redundant."
Henderson also insisted that the remake - which stars Ryan Phillippe - »
Rachelle Lefevre has a word to say about the domestic abuse scandals that have rocked the NFL in recent weeks. Actually, she has two words: “Effing atrocities.” Also read: Rachelle Lefevre on ‘Reclaim’ Shoot With ‘Shirtless’ Ryan Phillippe, ‘Creepy’ John Cusack: It Was Super Intense (Video) Lefevre, the star of CBS's “Under the Dome” and the new film “Reclaim,” sat down with TheWrap's executive editor Joseph Kapsch to discuss, among other things, the wave of domestic violence that has given the NFL a black eye lately. Self-professed football fan Lefevre told TheWrap that, for too long, society has written off the occasional abuse. »

In any movie where good people are being scammed by nefarious ripoff artists, there's always the potential moment where the protagonists become so stupid and trusting that you lose all sympathy for them. That moment occurs about midway through “Reclaim,” when the kind-hearted potential adoptive parents stumble blindly into yet another in a series of flim-flams. Those parents, Shannon (Rachelle Lefevre) and Steven (Ryan Phillippe), have traveled to the Caribbean to adopt sweet little Nina (Briana Roy), a young orphan who lost her mother in the Haitian earthquake. While Gabrielle (Jacki Weaver, whose resemblance here to Sally Struthers may or. »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "Secrets and Lies" (ABC - Midseason) The Pitch: "Yet another murder investigation into the death of a dead kid." "Well, I think TV has several of these. What makes this one distinctive?" "The dynamic star power of Ryan Phillippe." "Oh." Quick Response: Although "American Crime" is technically about parents dealing with the death of an older child, it's still the last part of a trio with "Secrets and Lies" and "Gracepoint." Of the three, "Secrets and Lies," based on an Aussie series I haven't seen, is the most sensationalistic and the most hollow, the one trying to say the least as both a commentary on family and grieving or American society or whatever. It's also the least involving as a mystery, because after 44 minutes, I don't especially care whether or not Ryan Phillippe's character did or didn't kill the young boy he finds in the woods and since »

There are few things more intriguing to Rachelle Lefevre than a strong female character.
She’s played one for the past two summers, as the resilient Julia Shumway on CBS’ sci-fi drama Under the Dome, which airs its Season 2 finale on Monday at 10/9c.
And in her new movie Reclaim (now in select theaters and available on VOD), she stars as Shannon, a desperate but tough woman who adopts a young Haitian girl with her husband (Ryan Phillippe) and uncovers a dangerous underground scam.

Throwing it back! Reese Witherspoon's #Tbt from Thursday, Sept. 18, was an amazing reminder of the Oscar winner's early years in Hollywood. See pics of Reese's best Hollywood moments. "Ahh the 90's…" Witherspoon, 38, wrote alongside a snap from the set of her 1999 flick, Cruel Intentions, featuring the film's central characters: Witherspoon, her then-boyfriend (and later first husband) Ryan Phillippe, and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Screenwriter/director Roger Kumble revealed last month that he "begged" Witherspoon to play Annette Hargrove in the drama. "We got into disagreements over who was [...] »
Yet another thriller preying on Americans’ travel xenophobia and audience fears of losing a child — two of the genre’s more pervasive, exploitative hooks in recent years — “Reclaim” casts Ryan Phillippe and Rachelle Lefevre as Chicago yuppies who travel to Puerto Rico to adopt a Haitian orphan. Little do they realize until it’s too late that the operation is a scam, of which their vaguely sleazy hotel neighbor (John Cusack) is one malevolent part. . Opening on 10 scattered U.S. screens Sept. 19, simultaneous with VOD release, this looks to be a blip on the theatrical horizon, but should score decent home-format sales as a passable name-cast time killer.
Having suffered a car accident that cost her a pregnancy and the ability to conceive again, Shannon Mayers (Lefevre) is in Puerto Rico with her husband, Steven (Phillippe), to pick up the earthquake-orphaned Haitian girl they’ve arranged to adopt through Intl. »

(Cbr) After nearly 17 years, Sony Pictures still knows what you did last summer. According to Deadline, the studio reaching back into the ’90s with a reboot of the 1997 slasher film "I Know What You Did Last Summer." Written by Scream’s Kevin Williamson and based on Lois Duncan’s 1973 novel of the same name, the original followed a group of friends — Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr. — who accidentally strike, and apparently kill, a fisherman while driving home from a party. They dispose of the body, only to be picked off afterward by a mysterious murderer. A theatrical sequel "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" was released the next year, followed in 2006 by the direct-to-video "I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer." For the new film, "Oculus" writers Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard will reportedly go back to the source material. »

We'll always know what you did last summer*. Because Sony won’t let us forget.
Deadline recently reported that the studio is rebooting I Know What You Did Last Summer, the 1997 slasher film about a group of college kids (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Ryan Phillippe) who cover up their hit-and-run, only to be stalked and slayed by the very person they thought they killed.
Now our ultimate dream cast for this reboot is present day J.Love, Smg, Freddie Prinze, and Ryan P. playing the same roles they did two decades ago (most are available), but since that definitely won’t happen, we brainstormed a few suggestions:

Those of us who look back on the nostalgic '90s with fondness did one giant eye-roll in reaction to the news that a reboot of the '97 horror quasi-classic "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is in the works.
Yes, it's too soon. No, we shouldn't be surprised.
Since we have no control over what Hollywood does (or doesn't do), we thought it best to put what needs to be in the reboot out for all the Internet to see. (That way, it's a matter of public record.)
So listen up, Hollywood. Here's what the children of the '90s need to see in an "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" reboot. Otherwise, we're coming for you.
One of the biggest problems with modern horror is its (usually clunky) inclusion of texts, emails, Facebook, Twitter, and IMs, all of which instantly date the movie. »

It seems the Hollywood Reboot Machine has tapped out the horror classics of the 70's and 80's, now it's moving into the 90's with it's eyes set on I Know What You Did Last Summer. Sony Pictures are planning the reboot, with Oculus writer/director Mike Flanagan on board to pen the script. The teens stalked by a stranger who know they killed accidentally killed a man the Summer previous plot will remain intact, but the movie is said to re-adapt the 1973 novel by Lois Duncan the original movie was based on, which starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillippe, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Sarah Michelle Geller, and took some liberties with the source material. I find it interesting this is announced around the same time as Scream, the movie which launched the slasher movie revival the original was spawned from, goes into development as a t.v show.

Sony Pictures is set to reboot the teen slasher series I Know What You Did Last Summer, with the studio tapping Oculus co-writer / director Mike Flanagan and partner Jeff Howard to pen the script for producer Neal Moritz (Fast & Furious).
Released in 1997 off the back of the success of Scream and the revival of the slasher genre, I Know What You Did Last Summer starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr.
The film grossed $125 million off a $17 million budget, and spawned the 1998 sequel I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, as well as the 2006 straight-to-dvd follow-up I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer.

Sony Pictures is developing a reboot of I Know What You Did Last Summer.
While reports state that Flanagan will direct the film, he has said that he has only signed up to write the project.
Happy to be writing a new "I Know What You Did Last Summer." (I'm Not, however, directing or producing... Not sure where that came from)

Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr starred in the original film, which followed four friends being stalked by a killer a year after they covered up a road accident.
The film was based on the 1973 novel of the same name by Lois Duncan, and »
They were one of the most successful horror series of films from the tail end of the 1990s, and now Sony Pictures are looking to revive the I Know What You Did Last Summer movies for modern audiences.
The films, which started in 1997 with I Know What You Did Last Summer, before spawning sequels I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and the direct-to-dvd hit I’LL Always Know What You Did Last Summer as recently as 2006, were hugely successful and starred the likes of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze, Jr.
The story, adapted from a 1970s novel by Scream writer Kevin Williamson, revolved around a group of high school students who are involved in a hit and run accident late one summer’s evening. Believing that the man they run over died, the students go about everyday life, only to discover that »

It's the summer Hollywood just doesn't want you to forget about! 17 years after Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr. graced the big screen as high school teenagers in I Know What You Did Last Summer, one movie studio is planning a major reboot. According to Deadline, Sony Pictures has tapped Oculus co-writer and director Mike Flanagan and partner Jeff Howard to adapt the 1973 book once again. Neal Moritz, who produced the original film, will also return for the project. The thriller tells the story of four teens who accidently run over a pedestrian. In hopes of not getting into trouble, the group quickly decides to dispose the body into »
Sony Pictures is rebooting the 1997 teen horror movie I Know What You Did Last Summer. Why? I don't know! The studio has even hired Oculus director Mike Flanagan to develop it. I liked Oculus, and I thought the director did a solid job with it. A remake of I Know What You Did Last Summer just doesn't make sense to me though. Is Hollywood really that desperate that they have to start remaking bad '90s horror movies?
The first film was based on the 1973 novel of the same name by Lois Duncan, and it starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Ryan Phillippe. The story followed a group of friends being stalked by a killer after conspiring to cover up a fatal car accident.
Neil Moritz, the producer of the original movie, is back to produce the new version. Flanagan will direct the film from his own script. »

Sony will reboot the teen horror franchise I Know What You Did Last Summer with Oculus' Mike Flanagan writing the script, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. He and co-writer Jeff Howard, with whom Flanagan wrote Oculus, will take a new stab at the 1997 slasher film in which four friends are hunted by a murderer after they cover up an accident in which someone was killed. Sony-based Neal Moritz (22 Jump Street) will produce through his Original Film banner. Moritz produced the original version, which starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr and
