Steven Seagal Returns With "Cypher"

10 November 2014 6:36 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Steven Seagal has joined the cast of the $25 million-budget action thriller "Cypher" at Aldamisa International.

Seagal penned the script and will portray a special forces operative who, frustrated with the bureaucracy of war, goes rogue and tries to exterminate terrorists being protected by the government.

No director is yet attached. Sergei Bespalev and Seagal are producing with filming to begin in April.

The plan is to go theatrical with the film which, aside from his appearances in the "Machete" films, would mark the first Seagal project to do so since 2002's "Half Past Dead".

Ambitious Projects Mark Strong AFM Deals

9 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amid the profound changes in the movie business, the first half of the 35th American Film Market has been dominated by the tried-and-true — action, thrillers and sci-fi with A-list attachments — as the six major studios concentrate on mega-budget tentpoles.

No project was more ambitious than Foresight Unlimited’s $120 million sci-fier “Inversion” with director Scott Waugh making storyboard presentations and major territories (Asia, Australia, Benelux, Scandinavia, Spain) snapped up by the weekend.

“I think it’s great news that a picture of this dimension can come out of the indie sector,” said Foresight topper Mark Damon, who packaged “2 Guns” and “Lone Survivor.” “The indies are demonstrating that they can do this kind of movie.”

Lotus Entertainment brought Keanu Reeves and Lorenzo di Bonaventura to Santa Monica to meet with buyers on sci-fi pic “Replicas.” “Buyers have responded very well to our slate since these are all positioned to go wide,” said Lotus’ Bill Johnson. »

Stars: George Eads, AnnaLynne McCord, Stephen Lang, Ted Levine, Steven Seagal, Vinnie Jones, Tia Carrere, Fiona Dourif | Written by Jerry Rapp | Directed by Justin Steele

Gutshot Straight (released in the UK under the shortened moniker of Gutshot) follows card shark Jack (George Eads), who while ignoring his kid and wife  and playing cards at the casino meets Duffy (Stephen Lang), a well-dressed rich older man who gives Jack his business card and a promise for a chance to earn big money. Already owing $10,000 to loan shark Paulie Trunks (Steven Seagal, with a really bad dye job) and struggling to get anything from his gambling, he takes him up on the offer to find that the offer is a string of weird bets, culminating in a big money bet; $40k to have sex with his wife, May (AnnaLynne McCord), while he watches. Jack’s end of the bet? His life.

Afm: Seagal Signs for Aldamisa’s ‘Cypher’

7 November 2014 12:18 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aiming for a resurgence of his long career as an action star, Steven Seagal has come on board “Cypher” at Aldamisa Intl.

Aldamisa topper Sergei Bespalev and Seagal are producing the $25 million project, targeted for an April launch of production. The project has been quietly unveiled at the American Film Market with preliminary discussions about international sales.

Seagal will portray a special forces operative who — frustrated with the bureaucracy of war — goes rogue and tries to exterminate terrorists being protected by the government.

Seagal has written the script. No director is attached.

Seagal began his adult life as an Aikido instructor and broke into show business in 1988 with “Above the Law” and saw his career peak with “Under Siege” in 1992. Other credits include “On Deadly Ground,” “Under Siege 2: Dark Territory,” “Exit Wounds” and “Half Past Dead” in 2002.

Since then, most of Seagal’s films have been direct to video »

Rt: Russia Today's six most memorable moments

30 October 2014 6:21 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As a UK version of the Kremlin-backed news channel launches, we look at its top clips, including Steven Seagal and Vladimir Putin

Russias state funded news channel Rt, formerly Russia Today, launches its dedicated UK news channel on Thursday, which aims to dissect the implications of major international developments for UK audiences. To mark its arrival, we look at back at some of its most memorable moments.

In August 2013 journalist and foreign correspondent James Kirchick was invited on to Rt to discuss Chelsea Mannings sentencing. He decided instead to use the opportunity to attack Russias anti-gay laws: Being here on a Kremlin-funded propaganda network, Im gonna wear my gay pride suspenders, and Im gonna speak out against the horrific anti-gay legislation that Vladimir Putin has signed into law, that was passed by the Russian Duma, that criminalises homosexual propaganda [and] that effectively makes it illegal to talk about homosexuality in public. »

12 Most Ridiculously Overpowered Video Game Characters

24 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Konami

The entire point of playing video games is to be able to do things that you never could in real life, be it taking on a horde of aliens on a distant planet or fighting off zombies on this one. A common thread throughout games like these is to make the player feel like a total bada**, and awesome though this is, some games arguably take it too far by overpowering the player character to the point where it’s the equivalent of watching a 90s-era Steven Seagal movie: it’s fun, but also made to look way too easy.

Sure, cutting through the enemies like a knife through butter can be fun to a point, but there’s a fine line between being too easy and too difficult that most games struggle to discover. On the other hand, some games go totally the opposite way and present enemy characters who are ridiculously overpowered, »

Movie Review: John Wick

23 October 2014 9:18 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

John Wick is a film about an ex-hitman who has recently been done wrong by some folks who are going to really regret doing so. Call it luck or karma but this is one hitman cannot get away from who he ultimately is. The film was directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, both of whom have decades of experience in the film business as stuntmen. While it is not uncommon in major films to have the lead stunt-man run the second unit like an assistant director, this is the duo’s first attempt to reach the big leagues.

The film is set up primarily as a flashback. We open with a bloody John Wick (Keanu Reeves) stumbling out of a vehicle. He is clearly in dire straits, but he does not call out for help. Instead, he watches an old video clip on his smartphone of his wife – a day at the beach. »

‘Damn Sea Vampires!’ DVD Review

19 October 2014 3:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Cassie Scerbo, Jonathan Lipnicki, Kevin Dobson, Brandon Beemer, Jaqueline Fleming, Jimmy Sweetwater, Lawrence Turner | Written by Brook Durham | Directed by Don E. FauntLeRoy

After seeing Cassie Scerbo’s fantastic performance in Sharknado I made it a point to track down and watch anything new movie she was in, which coupled with the ridiculous new re-titling (this film originally aired on Us television as Beasts of the Bering Sea), made Damn Sea Vampires! a must-watch. It doesn’t hurt that the film is also helmed by cinematographer Don E. FauntLeRoy – who cut his directorial teeth on two Anaconda sequels and a handful of Steven Seagal movies, including one of the star best post-2005 flicks, Renegade Justice (a personal fave).

Damn Sea Vampires! follows a family of treasure hunters: siblings Donna (Scerbo) and Joe and their father (Dobson), who spend their days dredging for gold beneath the Bering Sea. Having already lost a crew member, »

How a He-Man sequel and a Spider-Man movie became Cyborg

16 October 2014 3:38 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

How did an 80s Van Damme action flick emerge from a failed Spider-Man movie and Masters Of The Universe sequel? Ryan takes a look...

Cannon Films was in deep trouble by 1987. Its boom years, between the late 70s to the mid-80s, were largely thanks to an eclectic and hurriedly-made collection of B-movies: Chuck Norris action pictures, Charles Bronson revenge flicks and lots of things with the word ‘ninja’ in the title.

Thanks to its outsider status and anything-for-a-buck approach to filmmaking, Cannon Films became a major name in Hollywood, the grinning faces of its brusque founders - producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus - frequently appearing in TV news reports and tinseltown trade papers.

But in the mid-80s, Golan and Globus began to change their strategy. While they would still make Death Wish sequels and Chuck Norris pics, they began to dabble in making more expensive films, such »

Movie Review – Gutshot (2014)

13 October 2014 2:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gutshot (aka Gutshot Straight), 2014.

Directed by Justin Steele

Starring George Eads, AnnaLynne McCord, Steven Seagal, Vinnie Jonnes, Ted Levine,Stephen Lang, Tia Carrere and Fiona Dourif.

Synopsis:

A hard-up gambler gets in deep with the underworld when he takes up a bet from a wealthy gangster to pay off his loans.

Don’t be fooled by the poster art for Gutshot as this isn’t a Steven Seagal vehicle, despite his image being the most prominent. Neither is it a Vinnie Jones headliner, as his mug is also all over it, but both actors are part of an ensemble cast that includes Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs), George Eads (CSI: Crime Scene Investigtion), AnnaLynne McCord (Excision) and Stephen Lang (Tombstone) in a film that feels a little different in style for all involved, which isn’t a bad thing.

‘Sniper: Legacy’ Review

Stars: Tom Berenger, Chad Michael Collins, Vasil Enev, Dennis Haysbert, Danko Jordanov, Mercedes Masohn | Written by Don Michael Paul, John Fasano | Directed by Don Michael Paul

Shocking as it may seem given the amount of horror flicks I review here on Nerdly, I’m not just a horror fan. My movie-loving passion is in fact split between three genres: horror, teen comedies and action movies. As much as I can appreciate low-budget horror flicks I can also appreciate low-budget action movies – which, at least from major studios, are few and far between these days. Which is one of the reasons I was excited to check out Sniper: Legacy.

The other reason? Well, as a teenager I used to love Impact Magazine. It really was my film bible, I’d religiously pick up each and every issue from the newsagents near where I used to catch the bus to college; in »

10 One-Time Saturday Night Live Hosts Who Should Host Again

24 September 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Saturday, the 27th of September in 2014, marks the beginning of Saturday Night Live’s 40th season. In the first 39 seasons, 768 episodes have come and gone with hundreds of different hosts. Many of those hosts have been invited back, with Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, and John Goodman each hosting more than a dozen times each. The 40th season will begin with a trio of first-time hosts: Chris Pratt, star of NBC’s Parks and Rec and this summer’s blockbuster movie Guardians of the Galaxy; Sarah Silverman, comedian and former writer at SNL; and Bill Hader, one of the most popular former-cast members of the last decade. Will they be invited back after their initial show?

That’s almost impossible to predict, as the show’s history includes many hosts who performed at 30 Rockefeller but one time, and never returned to host again. Some, like Martin Lawrence, Adrien Brody, and Steven Seagal »

The Bottom Shelf: Remo, Almost Human, Branded To Kill and more

9 September 2014 12:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nick wades into another stack of DVD releases, including 80s action epic Remo: Unarmed And Dangerous, and lots more besides...

"Whatever happened to Fred Ward?" is a line surely on the tip of most people’s tongues. Apparently, the star of Tremors and The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult has mostly been doing TV work over the last few years, though you’ll almost certainly remember him as the charismatic star of 1985’s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. No? Well, shame on you, because Remo, making a welcome Blu-Ray debut, leads this month’s action-packed, erm, action special.

If you weren’t one of the lucky few that grew up with the preposterous movie otherwise known as Remo: Unarmed And Dangerous punctuating their childhood, we’ll fill you in. Riding on the success of the Rambo films (essentially, the only tenuous link being the vaguely similar name), Bond director »

Mysterious Facebook Petition Asks Fans to ‘Save’ Paul Schrader Movie

4 September 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Somewhere, Paul Schrader’s head must be spinning. Again.

Back in 2004, the iconoclastic “Taxi Driver” screenwriter found himself locked in a headline-grabbing battle for creative control when his “Dominion,” a prequel to William Friedkin’s Oscar-winning classic “The Exorcist,” was taken away from him by producers Morgan Creek and subsequently reshot, in its entirety, by director Renny Harlin.

Now, a mysterious Facebook page suggests that Schrader may be encountering similar troubles on his latest directing gig, “The Dying of the Light.” The page, entitled “Save Paul Schrader’s Dying of the Light,” includes a headshot of Schrader, alongside photos of stars Nicolas Cage, Anton Yelchin and Irene Jacob, as well as executive producer Nicolas Winding Refn.

The page’s “about” box reads as follows: “The truth about Dying of the Light…The movie was taken away from Paul Schrader! The movie is now recut and the control of the film was taken away from Mr. »

Vital lessons we've learned from major action movies

2 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Everything we know, we learned from the movies of Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Lundgren, and Seagal...

Teachers? Professors? Lectures? Pfft. They don’t know anything. You don’t learn things from books. You learn things from hanging out of a helicopter blowing up a small army. That’s real life experience. Unfortunately most of us have jobs, responsibilities and the like stopping us from going on our own violent adventures and escapades, so we have to turn to the pantheon of great action stars to educate us. Here, in one handy guide, are some life lessons to take from the work of Arnie, Sly and the rest.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

There are two key traits that we can gather from Schwarzenegger’s body of work that we should emulate. The first, and most prominent, is to always have something cool to say, especially after an act of violence. Try to make it relevant to the situation. »

‘The Expendables 3′ lands more punches than it misses

15 August 2014 12:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Expendables 3

Directed by Patrick Hughes

Written by Sylvester Stallone, Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt

 

Family themes are getting a good workout in action movies lately.  From the ragtag team of outlaws in Guardians of the Galaxy to the Pizza Hut dream-team in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, filmmakers need us to know that blood is thicker than water when the shit hits the fan.  That trend continues with Stallone’s latest testosterone booster shot, The Expendables 3.  The old dudes deliver the goods, but the new crew of young, demographically-balanced knuckleheads is utterly forgettable.  Luckily, terrific stunt work and a couple of surprising performances make this a worthwhile mission for fans of ‘80s action shtick.

Things open promisingly enough, with two fantastic action set pieces.  The first involves the remaining Expendables (Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture) busting their buddy (Wesley Snipes) out of a maximum-security train.  Fists, »
