The Devil's Advocate is being adapted as a television series at NBC

19 August 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I don't know about you, but I loved The Devil's Advocate. Despite Keanu Reeves awful accent, Taylor Hackford's horror/legal thriller gave us one of the last great performances from Al Pacino who chews each scene as the perfect big screen Satan. Plus, we got a sexy Charlize Theron and a buck naked Connie Nielsen in one of the most awkward sex scenes in movie history. Well, it looks like we may get a new take on The Devil's Advocate as ER creator John Wells has a pilot commitment from NBC. »

NBC To Develop Legal Drama Based On The Devil’s Advocate

18 August 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a sneering, scenery-chewing Al Pacino and a breakout turn from Charlize Theron, The Devil’s Advocate remains a popular watch on cable. However, that successful film could have a more permanent place in the minds of TV watchers, as NBC is now developing a drama series based on the legal thriller from 1997. Arnold Kopelson (producer of the film) and The West Wing‘s John Wells are in talks to produce the series.

Like the film, The Devil’s Advocate series will focus on a rising lawyer who joins a firm run by Satan. Keanu Reeves played the public defender in Taylor Hackford’s film, while Al Pacino got to play the Devil, spouting juicy one liners about how vanity was definitely his favorite sin. The network already has a pilot ready to be filmed, written by Matt Venne (A&E’s Bag of Bones), but there is no guarantee NBC will pick it up, »

18 August 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Continuing the fine tradition of TV shows becoming the new remake/prequel/sequel/premake/etc., a new version is on its way of the 1997 flick The Devil's Advocate, which starred Al Pacino chewing more scenery than any one person should be allowed to. Still... he was magic and far from an "Absentee Landlord!!!!"

According to Deadline, producers John Wells and Arnold Kopelson are bringing "The Devil’s Advocate" to television as a potential series. The legal drama with a supernatural twist, from Warner Bros. TV, has landed at NBC with a pilot commitment.

Written by Matt Venne (Bag of Bones, The Exorcism of Molly Harley), the series centers on a public defender who joins a law firm that is run by the Devil himself. In the film version the young lawyer was played by Keanu Reeves with Pacino playing his boss and Charlize Theron co-starring. The film, based on Andrew Neiderman »

Coming Soon? More from the Author of "Gone Girl"

18 August 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On a trip to Los Angeles last year I met longtime reader Margaret de Larios who, as it turns out, turned our own Anne Marie of "A Year With Kate" fame on to the blog originally. Margaret wanted to sound off on a topic I was very intrigued by so here she is to talk about the mysteriously silent upcoming movie "Dark Places". Say hello! - Editor

In just under two months, Gone Girl will likely be taking cineplexes by storm. The movie's marketing team is not of a mind to let us forget it, slowly rolling out new posters and trailers as well as sending David Fincher out to stoke internet buzz by playing coy about a possible new ending.

But what about the other Gillian Flynn movie, Dark Places?

Because there is another Gillian Flynn movie. And a TV series in development. And a project with HBO. And an original screenplay. »

Riley Keough Engaged To Stuntman Boyfriend Ben Smith-Peterson

14 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Riley Keough and her boyfriend Ben Smith-Peterson appear to have recently gotten engaged.

Riley Keough, Ben Smith-Peterson Engaged

Smith-Peterson posted a picture on his Facebook page that hinted at Keough, 25, saying “yes” to a proposal on Wednesday. He uploaded a picture on his page with Keough flashing her new ring at the camera. The stuntman, showing off his wolf chest tattoo, appears next to her, with his around wrapped around his new fiancée. “So that happened,” Smith-Peterson captioned the snap.

Neither Keough nor Smith-Peterson has confirmed the engagement news, and the latter has removed the revealing post from his Facebook page.

Keough and Smith-Peterson met on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road and were first linked earlier this year after they were spotted on what appeared to be a date. In Mad Max: Fury Road, which is set to come out in May 2015, Keough stars alongside Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. »

The top 25 greatest Jason Statham films

14 August 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

How do you rank perfection? Duncan has a go, as he lists the top 25 Jason Statham films...

For regular Den Of Geek readers, it will come as little surprise to see this list come round. We've chosen our favourite Statham films before, but such is the productivity of the great man, it was decided that a mere top ten was no longer large enough to contain his ever growing body of work. Last time I mentioned updating this piece to the man himself back in 2012 due to his insane workload, he cracked up and responded, “My productivity is overwhelming! 'Have a fucking day off!'”

Since this list has now expanded to encompass 25 of his movies, it seemed only right to include multiple sequels, with his big trio of action franchises all spawning some thoroughly entertaining fare worthy of mention, though I’ve tried to exclude the personal bias that »

'Thick' girl anthems: On Meghan Trainor and Bj The Chicago Kid's 'perfect' songs

13 August 2014 5:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Bj The Chicago Kid released his new song and video for "Perfect" this week, just as Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" rises more in radio ranks and singles sales. Both of these songs are addressing body positivity, particularly for women who don't fit beauty standards found in fashion mags and, well, music videos. They both define what is "perfect" about "thicker" girls. And they are both imperfect in this pursuit. Bj The Chicago Kid's fresh R&B jam is seemingly part of a suite, with his previous "Fly Girl Get 'Em" (which I prefer) playing part one. "I see you trying to disguise that potential," he sings in the latter. "She put her hair up in a ponytail / No make-up on her face / A wrinkled t-shirt and some jogging pants." Bj's new ode "Perfect" turns his eyes again toward appearances, but more specifically to the body. He calls "Perfect »

Beauty vs Beast: All About the Blonde

12 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Ja from Mnpp here. At this point it feels more than a little cliche to call Alfred Hitchcock your favorite film-maker. Tomorrow is his 115th birthday and it feels like we've spent at least double that amount of time writing about and reacting to how great, twisted, funny, pervy and technically masterful he was. Hitch is often the gateway drug, the little puff of movie marijuana that leads true cineastes on to the hard stuff.

I'll always come back to my first taste. It was the sweetest, the purest, and it still sends that shiver down my spine. I remember the first time I realized that movies, Movies, these are the thing I love, laying on my cousin's floor watching a camera sweep across across a boxy Manhattan backyard filled with windows into another world, stories in shorthand of life on top of life, all at once. It was everything. »

The Italian Job (2003)

The Minis (the sexy new BMW version), the title plus a tenuous Italian connection are about all that remain from the classic 1969 British heist caper - but there's no denying it's an exciting ride. Mark Wahlberg replaces Michael Caine as cheeky mastermind Charlie Croker and the action switches from Turin to La. Charlize Theron joins the crew as a slinky safecracker and Jason Statham provides the muscle, while Edward Norton throws himself into gear for chief villain duty. »

George Miller on why Mel Gibson was replaced for Mad Max: Fury Road

11 August 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After what seems like an eternity in development, we’re now less than a year away from the arrival of the fourth instalment in George Miller’s post-apocalyptic action series Mad Max, with Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) taking over from Mel Gibson as Max Rockatansky in Mad Max: Fury Road.

Considering Gibson’s troubles over the past few years, it comes as little surprise that the series has found itself with a new leading man, however according to Miller – who directed Mel in the first three movies – the decision to bring in another actor was purely down to Gibson’s age.

“I have a great affection for Mel. I was really heartbroken to see him go into [the scandals],” said Miller, who initially planned to stick with Gibson when he started devoping Fury Road over a decade ago. “But it’s a new time. I hope Mel gets to act »

Charlize Theron and Tia Mowry Now Fighting About Exercise?

10 August 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Are Charlize Theron and Tia Mowry now fighting about exercise? Charlize Theron reportedly wants Tia Mowry banned from an exercise class. The 'Young Adult' star was furious the 'Instant Mom' actress - who is most famous for appearing in Nickelodeon show 'Sister, Sister' in the 1990s - branded her ''mean'' in a recent interview so asked SoulCycle bosses to stop her using the facility as she was concerned about her privacy. A source told Dish Network: ''Charlize came in so p***ed off after Tia went to the tabloids about her, and she demanded we bar Tia from ever coming back. When the manager refused, Charlize just got angrier and said she'd go to the top to make it happen.'' The source claimed Charlize said: ''This nobody who was famous for a minute 20 years ago can complain to the tabloids about me but I can't expect you to protect »

Charlize Theron Not Trying to Get Tia Mowry Banned From SoulCycle—Besides, Oscar Winner Is Tia's #WomanCrushWednesday!

8 August 2014 5:54 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Charlize Theron may have played an evil queen, but she isn't going around lording it over people at SoulCycle. In response to a report that Theron wants Tia Mowry banned from the celeb-favored spinning franchise in the wake of an alleged exchange-gone-wrong between the two of them, a source assures E! News that "this is totally fabricated and completely not true." So there you have it. Perhaps everyone can spin in peace now. Charlize hasn't addressed the reported feud, but that's probably because there is no feud. It all started when In Touch Weekly quoted Mowry as saying that Theron "wasn't very nice" and actually "rolled her eyes and »
