Mark Wahlberg, Director Peter Berg in Talks for Action Movie ‘Mile 22’ at Stx

2 July 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg are in negotiations with Stx Entertainment for the action movie “Mile 22.”

The film would mark the third collaboration between Berg and Wahlberg, who also teamed on “Lone Survivor” and the upcoming “Deepwater Horizon.”

Berg will direct from a script written by Graham Roland. The film follows a CIA agent stationed in Indonesia who has to transport an informant from a city to a getaway plane at an airport 22 miles away.

Year-old Stx, headed by Robert Simonds, has been aggressively seeking to fill the vacuum in mid-price films. Its first release “The Gift,” starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Joel Edgerton, opens August 7, followed by “The Secret in Their Eyes,” starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor, on Oct. 23.

Martial arts champion Ronda Rousey and “The Raid” star Iko Uwais have also been cast in “Mile 22.”

Wahlberg and Berg are repped by Wme. »

New Projects: ‘The Birds’, ‘Monopoly’, and ‘Ashley’s War’

2 July 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Every time it feels like Hollywood has decided to remake a property that couldn’t be more sacred, they one up the ante. Michael Bay has been prepping a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s suspense/horror classic The Birds, and Variety reports that the project has now found its director: Dutch filmmaker Diederik Van Rooijen. Van Rooijen has directed the thrillers Tape and Daylight previously, but never a film in the English language.

Hitchcock’s film from 1963, arguably his last great movie and the story of how birds terrorized a small town in Northern California, has never been officially remade, but its influences are everywhere. Heck, even Jurassic World has a scene with pterodactyls worthy of Hitch.

No details on additional plot points or when production is expected to begin have yet been revealed.

So far the list of movies based on board games includes Clue, Battleship, Jumanji, and maybe someday, »

New Mother's Day Comedy Adding Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston And Other Huge Names

1 July 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It seems that Garry Marshall is ready to continue what's probably best described at this point as his "Holiday Trilogy." It began in 2010 with the star-studded ensemble comedy Valentine's Day; continued with 2011's star-studded ensemble comedy New Year's Eve; and now we have word about Mother's Day - a brand new star-studded ensemble comedy that has already begun putting pieces of its cast together. So who are the folks that will be populating this brand new project? Deadline has released the info about the project, and you can find our rundown on the cast so far below: First up we have Julia Roberts, who is not only a veteran star of Garry Marshall movies, but even had an earlier role in the Holiday Trilogy. The actress and director previously found huge success together working on both 1990's Pretty Woman, and 1999's Runaway Bride (both co-starring Richard Gere), and they most »

Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and more join the rom com Mother's Day

Do you remember back when Garry Marshall directing a movie meant it had the chance of being a decent romantic comedy rather than a holiday-themed ensemble debacle? Yeah, me either. After the painfully bad Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve, we now can look forward to Mother's Day. The first cast-members have been announced and they include Julia Roberts, Jennifer...

After a few years’ hiatus, Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve director Garry Marshall is resuming his quest to turn every holiday on the calendar into a middling ensemble comedy.

Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson And Jason Sudeikis To Celebrate Mother’s Day

1 July 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mother’s Day, the third and least likely holiday snorefest yet from Garry Marshall, has recruited a predictably star-studded ensemble cast including Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Jason Sudeikis.

The pic, which comes on the heels of Marshall’s dreary Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve ensemble comedies, is going out to buyers tonight (New Line made the previous two films, so it’s a good bet that it will snap this up too). Anya Kochoff-Romano (Monster-in-Law) and Lily Hollander penned the script.

Mother’s Day will tell the intertwining stories of several mothers as they approach the holiday intended to celebrate their matriarch statuses. Marshall has seemingly found a comfortable niche for himself directing these kinds of star-stuffed, painfully-protracted ensemble pieces, as Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve were his last two movies and he’ll launch into production on this one »

Now It's Time to Ruin Mother's Day With All-Star Ensemble Movie

1 July 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As if ruining Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve wasn't enough, director Garry Marshall has set his sights on taking down another holiday with a star-studded movie featuring insipid, loosely-connected stories.

Deadline reports Marshall is helming "Mother's Day," with Julia Roberts on board to star. Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Jason Sudeikis are in talks to join her. The film will tell "intertwining stories about the lives of several mothers as the title holiday approaches." Ugh. What did mothers ever do to you, Garry?

If you recall, Marshall has wreaked this havoc before with "Valentine's Day," which also starred Roberts (as well as Bradley Cooper and Taylor Swift), and "New Year's Eve" with Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, and Zac Efron. The former has an 18 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes; the latter has 7 percent.

Of "New Year's Eve," the great Roger Ebert wrote: It "is a dreary plod through the »

Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, And Jason Sudeikis Team Up For 'Mother’s Day'

1 July 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Since anything can be turned into a movie, studios have lately been turning to holidays as sources of creative inspiration. We've already received star-studded ensemble films based around "Valentine's Day" and "New Year's Eve," and next on the list is "Mother's Day." Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Jason Sudeikis are lining up to star in the movie that will be helmed by Garry Marshall, who already did this sort of thing with "New Year's Eve." Anya Kochoff-Romano ("Monster-In-Law") and Lily Hollander have penned the script for the movie that will present more overlapping stories, this time all about Mom, which is fitting, because she'll probably be the most excited one to see this. And this isn't the only "Mother's Day" movie on the way.

First trailer for Secret in Their Eyes starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor

1 July 2015 5:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yahoo Movies has debuted the first trailer for writer-director Billy Ray’s upcoming thriller Secret in Their Eyes, which is a remake of the Oscar winning Argentinian film of the same name, and stars Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

A tight-knit team of rising FBI investigators – Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Jess (Julia Roberts), along with their District Attorney supervisor Claire (Nicole Kidman) – is suddenly torn apart when they discover that Jess’s teenage daughter has been brutally and inexplicably murdered.

Now, thirteen years later, after obsessively searching every day for the elusive killer, Ray finally uncovers a new lead that he’s certain can permanently resolve the case, nail the vicious murderer, and bring long-desired closure to his team. No one is prepared, however, for the shocking, unspeakable secret that will reveal the enduring, destructive effects of personal vengeance on the human soul. »

After Mother's Day: which holiday should be turned into a movie next?

1 July 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve director Garry Marshall continues his obsession with star-studded gift cards by announcing Mother’s Day. Where in the calendar should he circle now?

Ready the horsemen. This week has seen the news that Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve will be followed by Mother’s Day, a new star-studded pile of froth which will become the third chapter of Garry Marshall’s holiday-based trilogy.

The stars are already signing on (Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Jason Sudeikis so far) for a film with a similar plotline to the last two efforts (rich folk with perfect skin do some things in the space of a day) based on a script by someone who wrote Monster-In-Law. But before you look forward to ignoring it on a plane, what other holidays deserve the big screen treatment?
