Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie T. Usher to Star in ‘Shaft’ Sequel

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After originally planning a full reboot of the ’70s classic, New Line is reverting back to a familiar formula for the next installment of “Shaft,” while also leaving the door open for a new face to take over the franchise.

Sources tell Variety that Samuel L. Jackson is in negotiations to reprise his role of the titular character with “Survivor’s Remorse” star Jessie T. Usher in talks to play Jackson’s son in the film.

Tim Story is directing a script from “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris.

The original 1971 version — based on Ernest Tidyman’s novel — starred Richard Roundtree as a smooth private detective who’s hired by a drug lord to find his kidnapped daughter. The character became a pop culture icon and the theme song, written by Isaac Hayes, went on to win an Oscar.

Paramount Pictures rebooted the film in 2002 with Samuel L. Jackson taking over the role, and »

‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’ Review: Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L Jackson Liven Up Routine Shoot-Em-Up

17 August 2017 4:15 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“The Hitman’s Bodyguard” is the kind of movie that “Deadpool” was supposed to rescue Ryan Reynolds from having to make. It’s the sort of film that forces him and his co-star Samuel L. Jackson to work double-time on their charm offensive in an attempt to distract audiences from the material’s utter familiarity. You’ve seen this movie a lot in the past few years: take one or two internationally marketable stars (usually it’s Kevin Costner or John Travolta or Bruce Willis or Nicolas Cage or John Cusack or Robert De Niro), bolster the cast with one or two slumming great actors, »

Glass: M. Night Shyamalan Give Update, Film To Shoot In Seven Weeks

16 August 2017 9:40 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

This year has been a great year for horror and thriller films. Between movies like Get Out, Annabelle: Creation, and the upcoming It (which we hope will end up being good), it certainly marks a solid one for the genre. One other film to be brought into the conversation is M. Night Shyamalan’s Split.

After years of either divisive or straight-up bad movies, some fans were beginning to wonder if we would ever see Shyamalan return to his former glory. Last year’s The Visit was a promising start, and Split marked an actual return to form, and not just because it tied into one of this earlier films, Unbreakable. The movie itself was both an intriguing story and it also showed a definite evolution of the filmmaker’s style.

When last we heard, the sequel, Glass, would be aiming for a September 25 shoot date, »

Game Of Thrones: who is The Night King?

14 August 2017 12:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marc Buxton Aug 15, 2017

Game of Thrones looks like it's heading into battle with the White Walkers and thus the Night King. Our Us chums explore his book origins...

So the ending of this week's Game Of Thrones episode was pretty badass, huh? The climactic image of the King in the North, the few remaining members of the Brotherhood Without Banners, Gendry, the Hound, and Tormund Giantsbane are going off to find themselves a Wight. This also means they'll soon be doing battle with the Night King (or for book purists, George R.R. Martin's much cooler name for him, "The Night's King"). You should remember this guy, the White Walker at Hardhome who raised his arms like the Undertaker after a particularly memorable Wrestlemania victory. It's probably one of the most chilling and impressive visuals that Game Of Thrones has ever featured. And it was one of those rare moments »

Revisiting the film of Stephen King's Sleepwalkers

13 August 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rebecca Lea Aug 14, 2017

Our Stephen King screen lookbacks arrive at Sleepwalkers, a movie based on an unpublished short story...

The film: Charles Brady (Brian Krause) and his mother, Mary (Alice Krige) are sleepwalkers, which are a sort of werecat vampires who feed on virgin women in order to survive. The only things that threaten them are cats, who show up wherever they go. After draining a girl in Bodega Bay, they set up residence in Travis, Indiana with their sights set on local teen Tanya Richardson (Mädchen Amick) for their next feed. Mary is one mother you don’t won’t like when she’s hangry.

20 Years Back: Celebrating the Cinematic Delights of 1997

12 August 2017 12:34 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe celebrates the cinematic delights of 1997…

1997. It doesn’t feel that distant but we’re now talking 20 years. This was the year I left school. That officially makes me old as fuck I believe. Lady Di passed, Tony Blair became Pm, Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule, Mike Tyson had a Holyfield Ear pie and more. The Spice Girls reigned supreme. Hanson were Mmmbopping all over the place and confusing horny teenagers who thought the girl singing lead was hot.

In film, the year is significant. This was the year the Titanic did the opposite of sink (erm… float). James Cameron’s historical (which icebergs aside wasn’t that historical) epic was seen by pretty much everyone on Earth. It probably grossed a further Trillion Wibblewangs outside the Milky Way (I just invented an alien currency). It thundered away as the highest grossing film ever (if you don’t »

M. Night Shyamalan Casting in New York for Willis-Starring ‘Glass’

10 August 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Every actor and cinephile alike knows the indelible mark M. Night Shyamalan has made in the horror and film stratospheres. But he’s nowhere near done and now you have the chance to get in on the action! The casting team Aibel/Holbrook in New York is currently in the process of finding talent for “Glass.” The feature will be a joint sequel to two of Shyamalan’s previous chilling successes, “Unbreakable” and “Split” (the latter has earned upwards of $275 million worldwide to date). Leading the sure-to-be huge film will be Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Anya Taylor, all of whom starred in one of the two preceding films. Emmy winner Sarah Paulson, who did not appear in either movie, will also star.   Shyamalan reteams with producer Jason Blum for “Glass,” following their two previous collaborations. The film, from Universal, is currently slated for a January 2019 release. »

It looks as if Ivan Drago will be turning up in the Creed sequel...

Just the other day in the Den Of Geek Shed, conversation turned to whether there’s a flat-out more enjoyable film on the planet than Rocky IV. With an inevitable injection of Con Air into the conversation, it was nonetheless passed that the film is a flat out delight, as Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa duly does battle with Dolph Lundgren’s Ivan Drago, and resolves the Cold War in doing so. They simply don't make 'em like that anymore.

In Defense of Reading Spoilers Religiously

8 August 2017 5:22 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Spoiler alert: This article will have spoilers for shows and movies that you should have already seen by now, so get over it. I've never seen Citizen Kane, but I know exactly what "rosebud" means; I knew Bruce Willis was dead the whole time I was watching The Sixth Sense; and I was mentally and emotionally prepared for the Red Wedding long before Catelyn Stark's throat was slit on Game of Thrones. Final confession: I frequently flip to the last page of a book to read the ending. I hate surprises. I religiously seek out spoilers and have since I was a kid. No, I'm not the jerk who posts things on Facebook and ruins your favorite show for you. I do, however, firmly believe that reading spoilers can enhance our viewing and reading experiences tenfold. Don't believe me? There's a method to my so-called madness. Have you ever found »

Death Wish: is the Bruce Willis remake an alt-right fantasy?

8 August 2017 8:25 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The trailer for Eli Roth’s revival of the action franchise has been accused of being ‘nakedly fascist’ in its story of vigilanteism in a volatile Chicago

There is a long and fine tradition of pointing out that Eli Roth’s new films don’t look very good. The cocksure writer, director, producer and sometime actor has spent the last 15 years serving up reliably polarising product from the gloomy, insidious torture-porn of Hostel to the garish sexpot thriller Knock Knock. Roth’s latest and most high-profile project – a long-in-the-works resurrection of the Death Wish franchise with Bruce Willis as the trigger-happy lead – has attracted even sharper criticism than usual. The launch trailer has sustained heavy fire on social media, called out for being “nakedly fascist” and being compared to “alt-right fan fiction”.

‘Death Wish’ Trailer

7 August 2017 12:11 AM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

(Aton) The trailer for the ‘Death Wish‘ remake has finally landed. The Eli Roth-directed vehicle stars Bruce Willis as Dr. Paul Kersey, a Chicago surgeon who goes out for revenge when his wife, (Elizabeth Shue) and daughter (Camila Morrone) are attacked in a vicious home invasion.

The original ‘Death Wish‘, which stared Charles Bronson and spawned four sequels, is considered to be a classic among revenge flicks, if not cult status at the least. The remake was written by Joe Carnahan, and will mark Roth’s first venture into the action/revenge genre. Carnahan was originally set to direct, but after creative differences Roth stepped in to helm the picture.

The film also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Jack Kesy, Dean Norris, and Mike Epps. Here’s the first full trailer.

Here’s the official synopsis for the remake:

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures presents director Eli Roth’s reimagining of the classic 1974 revenge thriller Death Wish. »
