24 minutes ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Seth MacFarlane is currently busy shooting his third feature directorial effort, the comedy sequel Ted 2, and he’s taken to Twitter today to reveal that David Hasselhoff will appear in the film, with the Hoff subsequently offering up a few words about his mystery role:

“It’s a pretty funny bit that we’re doing in the movie, and [Seth] is a lovely guy,” Hasselhoff tells Digital Spy. “I can’t really talk about the gag, but it’s very irreverent and very funny. He tore me up on the Comedy Central roast, and I get a chance to get back at him! He’s a good guy, we don’t meet too many people in showbiz where they say, ‘Hey buddy, I’ll call you back, I’ve got something for you’, and then you actually hear from them again. This guy’s a stand-up guy.”

Stephen Hunter talks Dirty White Boys, Hit Springs and The 47th Samurai adaptations and Shooter TV series

2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After a successful career as a Pulitzer Prize winning film critic and amidst an ongoing career as a thriving novelist, Stephen Hunter finally seems to be getting the Hollywood treatment his career has only tasted before (in the form of 2007’s Shooter which was based off his novel titled Point of Impact).

In an interview for the Baltimore Sun Hunter revealed and confirmed development on the adaptations of a few of his books both for film and television properties:

“My other-media projects sound impressive. On the other hand, [it's possible none of them will happen.] It’s best not to get too excited. Three movies ‘in development’ are Dirty White Boys, Hot Springs and The 47th Samurai. What does ‘in development’ mean? I have no idea. And they won’t tell you. Also a TV series based on [the movie] Shooter which was based on Point of Impact. If it gets on air, I get $1.63 every time it airs, »

11 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A remake of the 1974 drama, starring James Cann, of the same name, The Gambler sees a rail thin Mark Wahlberg as a literature professor whose gambling addiction spirals out of control, threatening him and those around him. The first, fast paced Nsfw trailer for the movie, directed by Rise of the Planet of the Apes' Rupert Wyatt, is pretty much a teaser, but gives us a perfect sense of the style and tone of the movie, and with it's punchy onslaught of images is one of the best trailers of 2014. Check it out below. Released: December 19th (limited, U.S.)/ 1st January 2015 (U.S.)/ 1st May (Irl/U.K.) »

First Poster & Trailer: "The Gambler"

17 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount Pictures has unveiled both the official one-sheet and red-band trailer for Rupert Wyatt's "The Gambler" starring a very lean Mark Wahlberg. William Monahan penned the script for the film which also stars Brie Larson and Jessica Lange.

A remake of the James Caan-led 1974 film, Wahlberg plays a college professor with a gambling addiction that leads him to lay his own life on the line as collateral against a loan from a gangster (Michael Kenneth Williams). The move brings him to the attention of a loan shark (John Goodman).

"The Gambler" will open in limited release on December 19th.

'The Gambler' Red-Band Trailer: Watch John Goodman Curse You Out

18 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Mark Wahlberg plays a literature professor whose gambling addiction gets him way more than he bargained for when he gets mixed up with a bunch of mobsters. That's the set up for The Gambler -- a remake of the 1974 film starring James Caan -- and the first foul-mouthed trailer has arrived online just in time to remind you how much you love John Goodman when he gets his hands on a nice, juicy role.  Warning: The following trailer is Nsfw and contains foul language. Directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and starring Wahlberg, Goodman, Jessica Lange and Brie Larson, The Gambler looks like a shiny piece of badass -- sort of how you feel sitting in front of a bunch of casino chips, just waiting to risk 'em all because... f**k it.  Wahlberg...

‘The Gambler’ Red Band Trailer Wants That F.U. Money

19 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Last year Mark Wahlberg was on a roll. He showed he hadn’t lost any of his comedic chops from I Heart Huckabees in his comically sincere work in Pain & Gain and he delivered a refreshingly unshowy performance in Lone Survivor. What followed those two performances, which displayed what a wide-range he has, was Transformers: Age of Extinction, where Wahlberg played a Texan with a slippery Boston accent. After recently trying to revisit that film — which I gave up on 20 minutes into its 20 hour hour running time — it became noticeably clear that, strangely, Wahlberg isn’t really an action star. He undoubtably has the presence for those roles, but when you look at his track record in the genre — Max PaynePlanet of the Apes, and more — he never delivers the caliber of performances we know he’s capable of. Of course that kind of material generally doesn’t offer the juiciest of characters, but »

Jim Bennett (Academy Award-nominee Mark Wahlberg) is a risk taker.

He plays both sides, immersing himself in an illicit, underground world while garnering the attention of Frank (John Goodman), a loan shark with a paternal interest in Bennett’s future.

See the Trailer for The Gambler, Which Is Mark Wahlberg’s Gambling Movie

21 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Doesn't it seem like Mark Wahlberg should have already made a gambling movie? He's made a smuggling movie, for Pete's sake. But no! The Gambler is the first gambling movie of Wahlberg's 20-year career as a film actor. How is that possible? Anyway, the film is a remake of a 1974 James Caan film. Wahlberg plays an English professor who, as you might expect, has a little bit of a gambling problem. »

The Gambler Trailer Reveals a Dramatically Thinner Mark Wahlberg

22 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Mark Wahlberg is stepping into the shoes that James Caan originated in the upcoming remake of 1974's The Gambler. The first trailer is here, and it showcases Wahlberg's very noticeable weight loss for the role of Jim, a literature professor with a severe gambling problem. It's a little jarring to see him about 60 pounds down from what he usually is, but hopefully the transformation will be worth it. So far I'm loving Jessica Lange as his mother, though it's actually really strange to see her out of American Horror Story at this point. Brie Larson plays a student with whom Jim has a relationship, so let's just pretend that 18-year age gap doesn't weird us all out. The movie looks good, and I'm excited to see more footage before its Dec. 19 release date. This is the red band trailer, so prepare for lots of cursing, and also, John Goodman. Front »

Gripping Red Band Teaser for Rupert Wyatt’s The Gambler

23 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Did seeing Mark Wahlberg as a (pretty lame ass) inventor running around with robots and his over sexualized underage daughter in Transformers: Age of Extinction leave a bad taste in your mouth? You can either cleanse that palette by grabbing a bite at Wahlburgers, or you can watch this intense teaser trailer for the actor’s new film The Gambler. The red band teaser sets up a really promising, high-stakes drama. Director Rupert Wyatt looks to have done an amazing job on his first feature since walking away from the Planet of the Apes franchise he successfully rebooted with Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Paramount Pictures is placing their bets on this new film, and hoping to walk away with some Oscars. They’ve got some pretty good odds too. The script for the remake of the 1974 James Caan film comes from screenwriter William Monahan, who took home »

‘The Gambler': Mark Wahlberg In Remake’s First Redband Peek

22 October 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Mark Wahlberg has a few Nsfw words for John Goodman in Paramount’s first reveal of The Gambler, the remake of the 1974 drama that nabbed James Caan a Golden Globe nomination and jumpstarted screenwriter James Toback’s career. Given his reaction a few years back when the remake was announced, Toback might share the sentiment. This Gambler stars Wahlberg as a college professor struggling with a crippling gambling addiction, with Goodman, Brie Larson, Michael K. Williams and Jessica Lange rounding out the cast.
