Leonardo DiCaprio is a busy man, known for stockpiling projects. Deadline reports that up next will be The Revenant with director Alejandro González Iñárritu. They will start filming this fall for a fall 2015 release. The two almost shot the film a couple of years ago, but DiCaprio decided to go with The Wolf of Wall Street instead. It's based on the Michael Punke novel, and Leo will play a 19th century fur trapper who, after being mauled by a bear, is robbed by some associates and left for dead. He, however, survives so he can get his revenge. It's kind of like Kill Bill, if it starred dudes and Quentin Tarantino were able to act on only one influence at a time. »

After collaborating with Martin Scorsese, Baz Luhrmann, Quentin Tarantino, Clint Eastwood, Christopher Nolan, and Sam Mendes in recent years, Leonardo DiCaprio is partnering with another Oscar-nominated director for his next movie project. The five-time Oscar nominated actor will star as 19th-century trapper Hugh Glass in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s adaptation of Michael Punke’s 2002 novel, The Revenant.
Iñárritu and Mark L. Smith (Vacancy) wrote the script, which tells Glass’ story of vengeance after he’s abandoned in the wild by his friends and left for dead following a brutal grizzly bear attack. Production is scheduled to begin this September with »

Mix some "Edge of Seventeen" ("Ooh baby, ooh baby) with an outtake from a Quentin Tarantino movie soundtrack, layer a signature lyrical style over that ("Their golden cars and rock-n-roll groupies"), and you've got Lana Del Rey's new single, "West Coast." Lana Del Rey's second album Ultraviolence is as long-awaited as spring this year, so it's good to know she's not veering too far away from that "Summertime Sadness." *cues up remix* »

Hustlers (or Pawn Shop Chronicles in the Us) follows the lives of a group of people who happen to pass through the same pawn shop. As their stories unfold, we see how their paths cross and where their journeys take them.
Paul Walker captivates in this insane adventure as the hilarious, dirty and drug-fueled imbecile – which certainly makes a nice surprise for the actor more commonly known for being a pretty boy in his roles. His character is so high when the film begins that he sees fire come out of painted flames! However, despite the severity of »

In the mid-1970s, there were few American filmmakers riding as high as William Friedkin. The French Connection swept the 1971 Academy Awards, nabbing Friedkin a Best Director statuette. The Exorcist, released two years later, broke box office records to become one of the top grossing films of all time. Boasting creative power and freedom that most directors could only dream about, Friedkin opted to film an updated version of French auteur Henri-Georges Clouzot’s classic The Wages of Fear (1953).
The result, 1977’s Sorcerer, became one of the most notorious box office bombs of the decade. Its dark, unrelenting tale of four desperate, disparate men (Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer, Francisco Rabal, Amidou) who undertake a suicide mission by driving truckloads of nitroglycerine across the rugged South American jungle wasn’t what the changing tide of audience tastes were buying then, »

And we thought the news that M. Night Shyamalan ghostwrote "She's All That" was weird (even if it might not be true). This time around, the weird movie trivia of the day concerns Quentin Tarantino, and there's no doubt it's true since he confirms it himself. Back in the '90s, one of the weirder pop culture phenomenons was the popularity of Pat, an androgynous character created by Julia Sweeney for "Saturday Night Live," where the entire premise of the joke was that no one was ever sure if he/she/it was a man or woman. Somehow, the sketch became popular enough that Lorne Michaels figured a movie vehicle would be a good idea. It wasn't. The movie was terrible and bombed horribly, but not before Tarantino himself worked on the script. Here's what he told Playboy in 1994 (hat tip to Filmdrunk): Playboy: You were hired to do »

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, who’ve been amicable in the years following their divorce, seemed to be on uncertain terms when they ran into each other at their daughter Rumer Willis’ concert over the weekend.
Both Moore and Willis turned up at West Hollywood venue Dba to support Rumer, who was performing in a musical mash-up For The Record: Tarantino, which pays tribute to Quentin Tarantino’s most famous films. The former couple applauded and cheered for their daughter from different areas within the West Hollywood hotspot.
After Rumer wrapped up on stage, her mother and father hung around to speak with her, but avoided speaking directly to each other, according to an eye witness. "They stayed after to congratulate her and chat for a bit," an eyewitness told Us Weekly . "Bruce and Demi did not interact with each other."

One of the funniest easter eggs in Captain America: The Winter Soldier wasn't a reference to another Marvel property. It was a reference to Samuel L. Jackson's Jules Winfield character in Quentin Tarantino's 1994 classic Pulp Fiction. Maybe you caught it, maybe you didn't, but thanks to /Film and directors Anthony and Joe Russo, we have a little background on how it ended up in the film.
Spoilers in case you haven't seen the movie yet.
At a certain point in the film we are led to believe that Nick Fury died. That's what he wanted Hydra to think. After they defeated Hydra and took down S.H.I.E.L.D., Fury, Cap, Falcon, and Black Widow meet in a graveyard at Fury's fake gravesite. His tombstone had the following quote:
The path of the righteous man: Ezekiel 25: 17

The feud caused by Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful Eight rages on. After sending his latest screenplay to only a couple of selected actors, the outspoken director was furious when he found out that the whole thing leaked on the internet, a full year before he planned on shooting the picture. Determined to take a stand, Tarantino filed a lawsuit against the gossip website Gawker for being the source of the leakage and – out of principle more than anything – resolved to work on a different film. According to the man himself, he’s got “10 more where that came from.” 10, eh?
On a more positive note, Tarantino has been vocal about how he’d love to conclude his historical revenge fantasy phase – started with 2009′s Inglourious Basterds, and continued with 2012′s Django Unchained – as a trilogy. Which begs the question: what historical incident could Tarantino use next, »

Los Angeles - RZA may be out and about promoting his film "Brick Mansions" co-starring the late Paul Walker, but it's clear that the rapper/director/actor/producer is also in full-promo mode for the couple of projects Wu-Tang Clan has in the hopper. Most recently, RZA announced that the hip-hop group had spent the last six years secretly recording the album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin," of which only a single copy will be released, and to the highest bidder. The album will be encased in original silver-and-nickel box designed by artist Yahya and is intended -- in RZA's words -- as a work of art; whoever ends up purchasing it can do with it whatever he or she wants, whether hold it in a private collection or release it somehow for public consumption or otherwise. Curious fans will hopefully be able to listen to "Shaolin" like »
One of the biggest easter eggs in Captain America: The Winter Soldier has to do with Pulp Fiction. Yes, the 1994 Quentin Tarantino masterpiece. Towards the end of the film there’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it reference to the film that either gets huge laughs from an audience, or total silence if they don’t have time to figure […]

Germany has cut funding for its popular federal film tax incentive by around $14 million for 2014, reducing the amount available for local shoots to some $82 million (€60 million) from $96 million (€70 million). Video: 'Grand Budapest Hotel' Trailer: Wes Anderson's Cast Introduced The fund, the Dfff, which has backed such productions as Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, George Clooney's The Monuments Men and Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, has been credited with bringing tentpole productions to shoot in Germany. Its success was a prime reason why the German government boosted the fund's budget last year. The news of the

Welcome, everyone, to another edition of the WhatCulture news brief. We have lots of good stuff to share with you this week, as studios kept us busy with casting updates, bizarre voice actor changes, and updates about Star Wars, Halo, and Quentin Tarantino.
But before we jump in, let’s take a quick gander at some honourable mentions that caught my eye:
Frozen Is Now The Highest Animated Film Of All Time. I guess people just can’t… let it go. (Sorry I couldn’t resist)
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Renewed For 2 More Seasons. Fans of the weirdest sitcom on TV rejoice! Charlie, Frank, Mac, Dennis, and Dee will be making us uncomfortable for a couple more years. »

The director was working on bringing the Western to the big screen, until the screenplay was leaked online in late January.
Tarantino has now announced that a live reading will take place at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Bing Theater on April 24 in an event that will not be recorded or streamed.
Tickets will be available for $200 to members of the Lacma Film Club, the New York Times Film Club and Film Independent from April 9.

Remember, back in January, when the first draft of Quentin Tarantino's script The Hateful Eight leaked online, and he was Pissed? He vowed that we would never see it on the screen, and for a couple minutes we all felt a little bit bad about reading it on the Internet. He’s sticking to his guns so far, but now, if you can afford the $200 ticket, you can see it performed live.
Tarantino will be directing a live read of the script for the Film Independent at Lacma on Thursday, April 24. It won’t be broadcast or recorded, so if you’re a major Tarantino fanboy, you better find your way into that theater. (Ticket information is here.) There haven’t been any casting announcements, but I’m sure some of his friends will help him out. Here’s a synopsis:

Eli Roth has not directed a movie since 2007. Well, technically he directed the Nazi film within a film in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, but that doesn't count in my book. Later this year, we will get to see Roth's cannibal horror flick The Green Inferno but now news is coming out that he will also be shooting another film he wrote in just a few months. According to Deadline, Roth has written a thriller called Knock Knock and will have his biggest star to date in the lead role. »

Let's all take a moment to thank Quentin Tarantino for Inglourious Basterds and the sensational foreign actors he's managed to bring into Hollywood's spotlight through it, like Michael Fassbender, Christoph Waltz, Diane Kruger, Melanie Laurent, and Daniel Brühl. Since Inglourious Basterds debuted, the Barcelona born Brühl has been popping up in a slew of American movies from the horror-thriller Intruders, to the cheeky indie sequel 2 Days In New York, and to a double dose of docudramas with Rush and The Fifth Estate. Fitting then that he's now in talks for Woman in Gold, another drama that has found its inspiration in real life. Deadline reports Brühl has entered into negotiations to co-star in The Weinstein Company's Woman In Gold, which will be directed by My Week With Marilyn helmer Simon Curtis. Should he sign on, Brühl would join a cast that includes Ryan Reynolds and Helen »
