Bruce Willis to star in stage play of Misery

42 minutes ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Oscar-winning movie Misery is heading to the stage. With Bruce Willis in the James Caan role...

THR is reporting that Bruce Willis will make his Broadway debut in a theatre adaptation of Stephen King's best-selling novel, Misery.

Willis will star as writer Paul Sheldon, who is kidnapped by his number one fan, Annie Wilkes (played in the 1990 movie by the wonderful Kathy Bates). Wilkes will be played by Elizabeth Marvel

Will Frears will direct the play for an unannounced theatre. The script was written by William Goldman, who also penned the screenplay for the aforementioned film. 

Misery will be produced by Warner Bros Theatre Ventures' Mark Kaufman and Castle Rock Entertainment's Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer. Raymond Wu is also producing. 

Willis will have some pretty big shoes to fill, after the sterling perfomance from James Caan in the 1990 film. Also, it'd be lovely to sit through »

Bruce Willis Heads For Misery On Stage

15 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

For years, the words “Bruce Willis” and “Misery” have largely referred to his feelings about hitting the contractual press tour for his latest film. But he’s set to change that definition by making his first foray into Broadway theatre performance with a new stage version of Stephen King’s Misery.Willis will take over the role of Paul Sheldon, played in the film by James Caan. In case you haven’t seen Rob Reiner’s Oscar-winning take on the story, Sheldon is a novelist whose car crashes on a snowy road. Rescued by Annie Wilkes, a nurse who claims to be his “number one fan” Paul comes to realise that he’s actually trapped with a lunatic who demands that he brings her favourite character from his books – Misery Chastain – back to life. When Sheldon refuses, Annie goes to increasingly violent lengths to convince him. William Goldman, who wrote the script for the film, »

Ansel Elgort stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday to chat about the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, which hits theaters on March 20.

"The Fault in Our Stars" and "Divergent" star Ansel Elgort was on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night, and he shared the story of a recent party he went to with his "ridiculous" mother, who has no idea who any celebrities are. They ran into Bruce Willis and his mom had no idea who he was, so she just said, "Hi, what's your name? What do you do?" When Bruce said he was an actor, Ansel's mom said, "Oh my son is an actor. How's that going for you?" In classic Bruce fashion, he just replied, "It's going pretty good." Haha. Good for Ansel's mom - it's about time someone »

Horror's Final Girls: What happened to the stars of Halloween, Scream?

28 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After a bombardment of terrible sequels and remakes, the horror movie genre is undergoing something of a renaissance of late with the excellent Babadook and this week's It Follows leading the charge.

Both films are driven by strong performances from up-and-coming female stars (Essie Davis and Maika Monroe), which brings to mind a classic horror movie trope: the Final Girl. Most prevalent in slasher films, the Final Girl is the last character standing who confronts a killer/ghost/demon and lives to tell the tale.

Digital Spy looks back at 7 of our favourite horror movie Final Girls, why they're iconic and what they're up to now...

1. Neve Campbell - Sidney Prescott in Scream

Many horror fans thought Drew Barrymore would end up being Scream's Final Girl when they first watched Wes Craven's 1996 horror, but the director offed her in the opening moments leaving Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott to face down Ghostface. »

Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s The Island of Dr. Moreau | Review

To Go On Two Legs: Gregory’s Fascinating Recapitulation of a Cinematic Train Wreck

Documentarian David Gregory graduates from an extensive history of shorts with his first feature length achievement, the verbosely titled Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s The Island of Dr. Moreau. However, the title is something of a misnomer, much like another recent examination of a project that never came to fruition with its originating director, Jodorowsky’s Dune. Stanley, who had gained a successful cult following in the early 90s for Hardware (1990) and the Miramax distributed Dust Devil (1992), would engage in the sort of uphill production battle that rivalled historical studio horror stories. Weather, nervous producers, pampered diva personalities, and ultimately, Stanley’s own limitations in reigning in such aggressive setbacks would result in his being fired from the set. However, the strangeness doesn’t stop there. Gregory manages to convey the extremity of a much maligned production, »

Bruce Willis' Next Film Is In Serious Financial Trouble

27 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bruce Willis has been filming his next movie, Wake, in the subzero temperatures of Cleveland, Ohio, but there.s one major issue that.s derailing production. No, it.s not the frozen tundra. The real John McClane isn.t afraid of frostbite. It.s the fact that there.s no more money to proceed, and if there.s one thing Bruce Willis appreciates, it.s a paycheck. The Greater Cleveland Film Commission released an official statement (which can be read on Cleveland.com) confirming the news. It said, in part, that Benaroya Pictures is looking to "find the remaining funds" and remedy the situation as quickly as possible. The statement also read that they are "optimistic" that production will resume in "approximately 2-3 weeks." A source close to the production told Deadline that things were headed towards this financial disaster for a while. As the trade notes, calls are currently »

Bruce Willis Action Thriller Wake Has Run Out Of Money And Shut Down

27 February 2015 12:13 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Joel Ryan/AP

As happens to independent films from time to time, the production of John Pogue’s Wake has run out of cash and had to close down production. The film was shooting in Cleveland, one of my old stomping grounds, and it was the local paper, The Plain Dealer, that got the scoop.

If the film gets back on track and starts shooting again it will be an action thriller starring Bruce Willis as “a sociopath who battles a team of mercenaries following his brother’s funeral.” The character sound like the polar opposite kind of action man to Die Hard’s sobbing John McClane. Let it never be said that Bruno doesn’t have range.

Piper Perabo, Ben Kingsley and Ellen Burstyn also have roles in the picture, and presumably still will if things get moving again quickly enough.

John Pogue’s most recent film was The Quiet Ones. »
