Syfy's 12 Monkeys isn't a huge departure from Terry Gilliam's film starring Bruce Willis, Madeleine Stowe, and Brad Pitt but it does tell a unique and dynamic story (and has fantastic, complex female characters). Aaron Stanford, Amanda Schull, and Emily Hampshire star in the Syfy version which is set to debut its third season next year. And this time, a time travel expert will be along for the ride. Today they let us know that none other than Christopher Lloyd, of Back to the Future fame, will guest star. Syfy gave away some very interesting details about the character: "Lloyd will play Zalmon Shaw, a charming but deadly cult leader who preys upon other’s tragedies and losses in order to recruit new members into the apocalyptic cult the 'Army of the 12 Monkeys.' Shaw is the father of the series' most imposing villain, the enigmatic Pallid Man." While the »

Two and a Half men and The Big Bang Theory creator Chuck Lorre is switching gears, with the producer set to try his hand at drama with an event series adaptation of the 1987 Tom Wolfe novel The Bonfire of the Vanities for Amazon Prime Video.
The Bonfire of the Vanities explores the ambition, racism, social class, politics and green of 1980s New York, and revolves around three characters: Wasp bond trader Sherman McCoy, Jewish district attorney Larry Kramer and British journalist Peter Fallow.
The novel was previously adapted for the big screen in 1990 by Brian De Palma, who directed a cast that included Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis and Melanie Griffith, but despite the success of the novel, the film was both a critical and commercial flop. »

The TV mogul is behind a new adaptation of Tom Wolfe‘s The Bonfire of the Vanities. Almost 26 years ago, Brian De Palma directed Tom Hanks and Bruce Willis in a disastrous adaptation of Wolfe’s novel. […]

Ever since M. Night Shyamalan announced in 2015 that he was working on Split, a “psychological thriller,” fans of the superhero cult film Unbreakable have been wondering whether the long-awaited sequel was finally in the works. Well, there is less reason to wonder—as our inside sources have come back with a resounding "Yes!"
Split is about a man with multiple personality disorder, and what happens when that man (James McAvoy) kidnaps three girls. The general theme—of the misunderstood loner that has an untamed beast within—is obviously similar to the story of David Dunn, the hero in Unbreakable, who suffers quietly as he discovers who he is and the meaning of his life.

Chuck Lorre is going for a dramatic change of pace with his next small-screen project.
The über producer (The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men) is developing an eight-episode drama series for Amazon, based on the 1987 Tom Wolfe novel The Bonfire of the Vanities, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A snapshot of New York City in the 1980s, Wolfe’s novel spins a tale of racism, politics and self-interest, as told from the perspective of three very different characters: a Jewish assistant district attorney, a British reporter and a Wasp-y bond trader. »
Chuckle-slinger Chuck Lorre is getting into the drama business. Amazon, Warner Bros. TV and Lorre are developing an event series based on “Bonfire of the Vanities,” Variety has confirmed. Currently, the project is being conceived as a single run of eight episodes for Amazon Prime Video.
Margaret Nagle, most recently of “Boardwalk Empire” and Fox’s “Red Band Society,” will write and serve as executive producer alongside Lorre. The project comes from Chuck Lorre Productions, in association with Warner Bros. TV, where Lorre is currently under an overall deal. David Corn, the Washington bureau chief of Mother Jones, is serving as a consultant.
This is, of course, not the first live-action adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s 1987 novel of the same name. The story about the moral abyss of 1980s New York, with all its attendant classicism, racism, and blind ambition, led to a 1990 film starring Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis and Melanie Griffith. Despite »

As China is eager to export its soft power to the world, more Hollywood faces have been cast in Chinese blockbusters in the hope of scoring global releases and winning the hearts of international audiences.
Despite China’s box office slowing down by 21% in the first half of 2016, the country’s film market saw a staggering rise over the past five years on its way to challenge the North America’s position as the world’s No. 1 movie market.
Chinese money is also set to reshape Hollywood through various acquisitions, such as Dalian Wanda Group’s 2012 buy of the AMC theater chain and purchase of Legendary Entertainment in January.
But there is only so much that money can buy. Chinese productions earned little recognition abroad in recent years. The only Chinese-language film that has ever won a foreign-language Oscar was 2000’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” but the Ang Lee film »

david j. moore chats with actor Richard Tyson…
A busy actor since making his auspicious cinematic debut as perhaps the greatest movie bully of all time in Three O’clock High (1988), Richard Tyson always makes an impression when you see him on screen. He’s done everything from sexy and suave (Two Moon Junction, 1988) to being the bad guy (Kindergarten Cop, 1990), and he’s also done comedy in three different Farrelly Brothers pictures (Kingpin, 1996, There’s Something About Mary, 1998, and Me, Myself, and Irene, 2000). He’s been extremely active as a character actor in notable films like Battlefield Earth (2000), Black Hawk Down (2001), and different horror films such as Big Bad Wolf (2006) and 2015’s Bound to Vengeance, which casts him against type. Tyson, who’s done extensive work in theater, has run the gamut of acting, and he’s never stopped working since his humble beginnings as a kid from Mobile, »

Contains spoilers for Banshee season 4.
Finishing its four season run early this year, Cinemax’s action extravaganza Banshee staked a claim as a new cult favourite from its first moments, with a combination of wild fight scenes, gripping character drama, enormous plot twists and surprising world building. We spoke with creator Jonathan Tropper to discuss the development of the show, the stunning fights, Tropper’s past and future work and how Banshee always managed to balance extreme violence with real heart and pathos.
Your background as a novelist has been predominantly in fairly down to earth, tender dramas. What inspired the hard left turn into Banshee territory?
As much as the place where I ended up finding my voice as a novelist was in contemporary commercial lit-fiction, »
Exclusive: Elisabeth Shue has been cast opposite Bruce Willis in Death Wish, the Eli Roth-directed remake of the 1974 Charles Bronson film for Paramount and MGM. She joins Mike Epps, Dean Norris and Vincent D'Onofrio in the film, which is shooting in Chicago and Montreal. Shue will play the wife of Paul Kersey (Willis), whose life is destroyed by a violent crime against his wife and daughter. Frustrated that the bad guys were not brought to justice for the nefarious act… »
Now that ABC has snuffed the life from Uncle Buck with a snap of its fingers, it seems Mike Epps might be looking for a chance to exact some payback. Empire reports the comedian and actor has joined the cast of upcoming revenge-thriller remake Death Wish, possibly hoping director Eli Roth might cast a few network execs as cannon fodder in the film. (Of course, maybe Roth has already cast a studio exec in that role as a favor to writer and ex-helmer of the project Joe Carnahan, to help him get some closure with the “gutless turd” and “dumb cunt” who disapproved of Carnahan’s casting choices.)
The film, set to star famed paycheck-casher Bruce Willis, details the story of a grieving father (Willis) who sets out to avenge the violence visited upon his family with a little violence of his own. With Vincent D’Onofrio and Dean Norris »

With his super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke can’t be harmed by anyone — not any thug, criminal or cop. The invulnerable superhero emerges amidst today’s racially charged political climate in which the nation is divided over police shootings of unarmed black men and the corresponding #BlackLivesMatter movement.
“This is really an era in which it’s a fascinating time to have a bulletproof black man that exists in the world,” showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker said during interviews at Comic-Con.
