In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Back in the early '90s, Mark Wahlberg gave us plenty of memorable Marky Mark moments, and now there's a must-see 1991 interview that's resurfaced. In it, Marky Mark cruises around San Francisco, flexing his biceps and explaining his music philosophy. "Basically, my music is me," he says, explaining how his music career differs from that of his brother Donnie Wahlberg, a member of New Kids on the Block. "It's easier for me as opposed to, like, the New Kids [on the Block], you know what I mean? Because I'm not basically focused on the girls and the love songs and stuff." Earlier this year, Mark talked about his Marky Mark days during an appearance on The Tonight Show, saying, "I was an absolute train wreck. Wow."

While it’s a nice informative clip about the thinking behind Joyce’s megalomania, the best moment comes as Sophia Myles describes just how hard it is to work with Tucci because he’s constantly making her laugh. She even tells us about the advice she received from veteran actor Kelsey Grammer about how to handle the giggles."

So, not much, we're afraid, but at least a glimmer of hope for those of us who'd love to see...

The race for Oscar is akin to a political campaign, and the first three Fall film festivals have made a significant impact on all the major races. Consider that Venice, Telluride and Toronto take place within three weeks of each other and you have a huge indicator of how the season will progress. With that in mind, here are eight major takeaways that are still buzzing in our heads as the Oscar race begins. "The Imitation Game" just got a huge head start. Harvey's had a tough year at the box office. He isn't going to have a tough year with Oscar. "The Imitation Game" was the hit of Telluride and took the People's Choice Award at Toronto (something The Weinstein Company movies seem to have an awful amount of luck with). It's not quite the slam dunk that "The King's Speech" or "The Artist" were because it "appears »

After his second directorial feature, A Million Ways To Die In The West, was met with disappointing reviews, Seth MacFarlane is poised to return to more financially sound pastures with his upcoming comedy sequel, Ted 2.
With Amanda Seyfried and Morgan Freeman joining the cast, production is beginning to ramp up ahead of the film’s 2015 release date. That aforementioned duo will join Mark Walhberg for the R-rated romp, who recently took to Twitter to upload an image of his character (John Bennett) sitting atop a Flash Gordon-styled motorcycle.

Does this mean that Flash Gordon himself — aka Sam Jones — will have another cameo role for Ted 2? At this stage, we can only hope. Nevertheless, we understand that the sequel will pick up shortly after the events of the first film, »

Some casting information has been surfacing over the past week regarding the comedy sequel Ted 2, and that's mostly because the comedy sequel is currently in production over in Boston right now. However, we've yet to see any photos from the set and no plot details have surfaced at all (beyond Morgan Freeman playing a successful civil rights lawyer who helps Ted with some legal trouble). But now we get a hint of what could be going on in the film set for release next summer as star Mark Wahlberg posted a photo from the set on Twitter for everyone to see. Not only does he show off his ripped arms, but it seems his character John Bennett also has a slick new ride inspired by his hero and wedding officiator, Flash Gordon. Here's the photo Mark Wahlberg posted from the set of Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2 on Twitter: Ready to ride? »

(Cbr) Given the many multimillion-dollar box-office hits with his name and face on the posters, Mark Wahlberg isn’t exactly the type to transition from movies to television — unless we’re talking about "Wahlburgers," or his efforts as a producer. To that end, Wahlberg is once again assuming a producer role, but not a starring one, by adapting one of his own feature films as a television series. Deadline reports he and frequent collaborator Stephen Levinson have teamed with Paramount TV for a small-screen version of "Shooter," the 2007 Antoine Fuqua action film that starred Wahlberg as a retired Marine sniper who’s framed for a crime. According to the website, the "Shooter" series is being set up at TNT, with "Underworld: The Awakening" and "The Shield" veteran John Hlavin tapped as writer and executive producer. »
