Replicas helmer to direct Jackie Chan in Five Against a Bullet

26 February 2017 1:11 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in December it was announced that Jackie Chan had signed on to star in the action thriller Five Against a Bullet, and now comes word that Traitor and Replicas helmer Jeffrey Nachmanoff will be handling directing duties.

Five Against a Bullet has been in development for several years, with Bruce Willis attached to star at one point, and Joe Carnahan coming on board to direct in 2014. Carnahan recently exited the project, but remains credited as the screenwriter, although Matt Corman and Chris Ord (Covert Affairs) are currently penning a new draft.

The film will follow five world-weary bodyguards who are hired to protect a Mexican politician running for mayor after his father is murdered by a drug cartel. Previous reports have suggested that the project could potentially spawn a franchise following the team of bodyguards through their various assignments. »

Joe Carnahan came on to the project in 2014 to direct and re-write Alex Litvak’s script, set in a small Mexican town under attack by the drug cartel. The story centers on five the world-weary bodyguards who are signed on to protect a Mexican politician after his father is murdered by a cartel, ahead of an election.

Matt Corman and Chris Ord (“Covert Affairs”) are writing the latest draft under Nachmanoff’s supervision.

Check Out Top Casinos For Celebrity Gamblers

22 February 2017 1:52 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Online gambling is enormously popular all over the world. Usually, everyone favors this kind of activity, including famous celebrities. In addition, their visit may give a casino exactly the kind of recognition it calls for.

In Las Vegas, walk into the Bellagio, and you’ll notice a poker room graced by hand-blown Murano glass. You’re quick to see another type of luminary: star like Alex Rodriguez who comes to the Bellagio to gamble. When celebrities are deciding where they would like to go gambling, they stick to places where there are other things to do alongside gamble. They also have a tendency to stick close to home, since these places are shorter than other kinds of vacations.

As per the gaming experts, Las Vegas is the most accepted celebrity gambling destination. It’s near to Los Angeles and has luxury shopping at stores, dining with top restaurants, lavish spas and a thriving nightlife. »

Samuel L. Jackson Teases His Involvement In Unbreakable 2

18 February 2017 2:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When M. Night Shyamalan’s Split arrived in theaters, it’s fair to say that audiences probably didn’t expect a whole lot from it. Fans of the director’s early work were in for quite a surprise though when it was revealed that the film actually took place in the same cinematic universe as Unbreakable, with Bruce WillisDavid Dunn even showing up near the end to tie it all together. With the origin story for James McAvoy’s villain now out of the way, it’s time to start looking ahead to what comes next, and according to the director himself, that’ll be Unbreakable 2 (or Split 2 – a title hasn’t been chosen yet).

Details on what the sequel will involve are scarce, as you can imagine, but we know that Shyamalan already has an outline ready and will be working with both Disney and Universal to bring his vision to life. »

Samuel L. Jackson Talks Split 2 and the Return of Mr. Glass

17 February 2017 3:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After spending a handful of years in the doghouse due to churning out truly terrible movies like The Happening and The Last Airbender, it seems like director M. Night Shyamalan is back. His 2015 movie The Visit helped, but it is his most recent movie Split that has really healed his damaged reputation. Since Split 2 is probably going to happen, there are a lot of questions, given the big reveal at the end of the first movie. One of those questions has seemingly been answered, because it looks like Samuel L. Jackson will be involved in the sequel.

Fair warning, this article will contain spoilers for Split. The actor recently spoke with Collider about Split and his potential involvement in the sequel. He revealed that even he didn't know about the ending, in which, it was revealed that Split and Unbreakable take place in the same universe, via a cameo by »

Split 2: Samuel L. Jackson Teases His Involvement In M. Night Shyamalan’s Thrilling Sequel

17 February 2017 3:27 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Ladies and gentlemen, M. Night Shyamalan is back!

Man, does it feel good to say that. Words can’t express just how great it is to see one of this generations most promising filmmakers get back into the spotlight in a good way. Like many film lovers around my age, Shyamalan’s movies played a big part in shaping my personal identity as as cinephile and as a storyteller in general. So it broke my heart when he headed down the road to awfulness with some of his more recent films. But between 2015’s The Visit and the more recent Split, he’s officially back on the map.

Those who have seen the film know that it left things off in a particularly intriguing way — a way that you should Not allow to be spoiled if you have yet to see it. As such, we’re going to have to »

Here’s How M. Night Shyamalan Convinced Disney To Let Him Include David In Split

16 February 2017 5:38 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’re going to go ahead and assume that at this point, you’ve seen Split. And even if you haven’t, you’ve no doubt heard all about how it’s actually a lead-in for the long-awaited Unbreakable 2. That’s because Bruce Willis makes a surprise cameo at the end as David Dunn, the main character from one of M. Night Shyamalan’s most celebrated films, Unbreakable. It was a twist that no one saw coming but now it’s all people can talk about, and with good reason.

The director has already confirmed that he is indeed pushing ahead with Unbreakable 2 and is currently hard at work on it. But one has to wonder: Split was released by Universal, while Touchstone Pictures (owned by Disney) hold the rights to Unbreakable, so just how did M. Night get around all the red tape and receive permission to use Dunn in his film? »

Newswire: We finally know who Helen Mirren’s playing in Fate Of The Furious

16 February 2017 6:55 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ever since we learned that Helen Mirren is ride or die for the Fast And The Furious franchise—so much so that she’s starring in the upcoming Fate Of The Furious—we’ve wondered what part she would play in the family-first franchise. Mirren’s done the assassin thing alongside Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman in the Red movies, so she could certainly handle her own opposite Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. Word has finally broken as to her role, and it sounds... interesting.

Yahoo! Movies recently interviewed Luke Evans, one of the stars of the Fast & Furious 6, and learned that Mirren would play his character’s mother. Evans was actually stumping for the live-action Beauty And The Beast movie he currently stars in, but he answered questions about his Fast character Owen Shaw, who was last seen in a coma, which is what sent his brother ...

'Wayne’s World' 25 Years Later: How Mike Myers and Dana Carvey Found Their Inner Rock Stars

14 February 2017 8:25 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The tagline did not lie. We laughed. We cried. We hurled.

Wayne’s World premiered 25 years ago today! Speaking to Et throughout the film’s production, stars Mike Myers and Dana Carvey discussed the origin of the popular Saturday Night Live characters as they were making their film debut.

When Wayne (Myers) and Garth (Carvey) hit the big screen in 1992, it had been over a decade since The Blues Brothers, SNL’s first foray into feature films. Debuting in 1989, the characters appeared on the sketch comedy institution several times with guests that included Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis, Mary Tyler Moore and Madonna.

The 1990 sketch with Hanks proved especially memorable (“sibilance”), with Aerosmith jamming out a cover of the Wayne’s World theme song and Myers’ titular character evolving in real time. It may have proved to be a vital tipping point toward its future movie adaptation, as development on the screenplay began that year.

The Weekend Warrior 2/10/17: The Lego Batman Movie, 50 Shades Darker, John Wick 2

8 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:                                                                

Bomb, bomb bomb bomb, Boooooomb!  Things just kept getting worse and worse at the box office as this past weekend saw more new releases not meeting up to their potential. The horribly-reviewed horror movie Rings (Paramount) ended up around where I predicted with $13 million, taking second place to M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. The sci-fi romance The Space Between Us (Stx Entertainment) didn’t make much of a mark, opening in ninth place with just $3.8 million with about $1,300 per theater. Robert De Niro’s The Comedian (Sony Classics) tanked worse than many recent movies, making less than a million in 848 theaters or about $1,000 per theater. By comparison, the doc I Am Not Your Negro made about 78% of that amount in 800 less theaters. »

M. Night Shyamalan teases his next movie

7 February 2017 1:35 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh off the success of his latest film, Split, M. Night Shyamalan is staying on the comeback train in fine style. And now it looks as if Split, at least in some form, will be receiving a sequel. A pretty big spoiler follows. You have been warned…

Speaking on Twitter on Sunday, the maverick director has said that he already has an outline for the potential film but remained coy as to exactly what it contains and how it connects to Split.

I have an 11 page outline for my next film in my bag. I can't tell you what it is, but If you've seen #Split

M. Night Shyamalan (@MNightShyamalan) February 4, 2017

Split, which is the tale of a man with multiple personalities, has been doing very well for Shyamalan at the box office and returning him close to the stature he once enjoyed during his heyday with such films as The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. »

M. Night Shyamalan Teases 'Split' Sequel, Says It's Already Outlined

7 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Warning: there be spoilers ahead if you haven't seen Split yet. M. Night Shyamalan's Split has turned into a genuine box office phenomenon, topping the charts for the third straight weekend. That in itself would no doubt prompt calls for a sequel, but the resolution of the movie suggested that writer/director Shyamalan had a followup in mind. As we've already reported, Kevin Wendle Crumb, the lead character in Split, was originally included in Shyamalan's script for Unbreakable, which introduced the heroic David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and the not-so-heroic Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), also known as Mr. Glass. Shyamalan has acknowledged that he wants to make a third film in that cinematic universe and even told Entertainment Weekly about an outline he had...
