Vincent D’Onofrio and Dean Norris join Bruce Willis in the Death Wish remake

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director Eli Roth is filling out the cast of his Death Wish remake, with Deadline reporting that Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil) and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) have signed on to star alongside Bruce Willis, who is portraying Paul Kersey, played by Charles Bronson in the 1974 original. D’Onofrio is set to play Kersey’s brother, while Norris will portray Detective Rains.

Death Wish follows Kersey, a man whose life is torn apart when thugs murder his wife and sexually assaults his daughter. Frustrated by the police’s failure to bring the criminals to justice, Kersey decides to take matters into his own hands and seeks revenge.

Production on Death Wish is set to get underway in September. The film is currently without a release date, but expect it in 2017.

Go Topless Day: 7 Celebrities Who Bared Their Breasts for a Cause (Photos)

6 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Go Topless Day Kim Kardashian and Emily Ratajkowski doffed their tops, painting the fleshy twofer as a statement on feminism — though Piers Morgan, for one, wasn’t buying that explanation.   Model Naomi Campbell posted a topless photo of herself on Instagram last year, aligning herself with the #FreeTheNipple movement.   Scout Willis, the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, traipsed topless through Brooklyn to protest Instagram’s censoring policy. “What I am arguing for is a woman’s right to choose how she represents her body,” Willis declared. Halle Berry joined Instagram in the splashiest possible way in March, posting a topless photo of herself. »

‘Death Wish’ Adds Vincent D’Onofrio and Dean Norris, Corners the “Awesome Stocky Character Actor” Market

26 August 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I’m still not sure if Bruce Willis is the right man to star in a remake of Death Wish. Hell, I’m still not sure if Death Wish is a movie that needs to be remade at all. And yet, I’m interested what a director like Eli Roth, a filmmaker with a penchant for getting really ugly, […]

Vincent D’Onofrio And Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris Enlist For Death Wish Remake

26 August 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Daredevil and Heisenberg, look away now. Deadline is reporting that the Eli Roth-directed Death Wish has enlisted Vincent D’Onofrio and Breaking Bad‘s Dean Norris.

A remake of the Charles Bronson thriller of the same name – itself an adaptation of Brian Garfield’s novel – D’Onofrio and Dean Norris will now join Bruce Willis in the overhaul, which has set up shop over at MGM and Paramount. Indeed, this two-fold casting coup is a real sign of progress for Death Wish, given the project has spent the past few years languishing on the fringes of development.

During that time, Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (Big Bad Wolves) were in line to helm Paramount’s remake before last-minute script changes forced the directing pair to bow out. Joe Carnahan (The Grey and, soon, Bad Boys For Life) also contributed to the screenplay during its formative years, before Scott Alexander »

Sam Mendes to Direct ‘James and the Giant Peach,’ ‘Ocean’s Eight’ Adds Sarah Paulson, and More

26 August 2016 7:01 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Fresh off the heels of all that Bond, director Sam Mendes looks to be switching his focus to more family-oriented, less suave fair with a live-action adaptation of James and the Giant Peach.

The project is helmed by Gary Ross (Hunger Games, Seabiscuit) off a script co-written by Ross and Olivia MilchGeorge Clooney and Steven Soderbergh produce. The film is slated for 2017 release. »

Newswire: Vincent D’Onofrio to help Bruce Willis make a wish—a Death Wish

25 August 2016 6:07 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Deadline is reporting that Vincent D’Onofrio and Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris have both signed on to the Death Wish remake. Directed by Eli Roth, the film is expected to star Bruce Willis as a sort of grizzled genie who loves to grant wishes—as long as those wishes are for death.

Okay, so that’s probably just Death Wishful thinking. Instead, the Roth-directed film will probably just be an even-more-violent retread of the old Charles Bronson vigilante splatterfests, except with Willis in the role of Paul Kersey, a mild-mannered architect-turned-architect of death. (We’ll be honest: we’re kind of addicted to ending sentences with death right now.) D’Onofrio will play Willis’ brother, while Norris plays a police detective. Going off his past track record, though, it’ll probably take Norris’ character a while—and some aggressively placed clues—for him to crack the case. But ...

Mistresses Recap: Pill Street Blues

22 August 2016 8:17 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There are things to celebrate about this week’s Mistresses: the absence of bratty teen Lucy and awful Aussie Kate, the jaw-dropping beauty of Karen’s blue lace dress, and especially the insanity of Lydia dropping in during her boss’ “appetizer” course.

RelatedGood Wife Fave Targeted by CBS’ Bull, Playing Serial-Like Investigator

But like Elizabeth Grey sans martini or Josslyn Carver without a zippy punchline, there’s a certain spice missing from Season 4, Episode 10 — and that’s why I’d put it near the very bottom of my all-time Mistresses episodes ranking.

Pilot for Jcvd's Ridiculously Farcical Action Comedy Jean-claude Van Johnson is a Giant Leap Forward in the Actor's Career. Watch and Vote!

19 August 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

"Maybe you’ve seen TimeCop, which is like Looper, starring Bruce Willis but like a million times better." Guess who's back? Back again.  It’s no secret I’m the biggest Jean-Claude Van Damme fan in the world. If you think you have a one-up on me, meet me at the Kumite. (Caveat: Must be under 5’5’’ and weight less than 140 pounds.)  Jcvd has seen glory and hell in his lifetime, and over the last few years, approaching his golden years, he’s having the time of his life.  He gained critical acclaimed for his honest, poignant portrayal of himself in the terrific Jcvd (that monologue, man. Deep.) This film blew fans and critics alike away — to date, he’s the only action star to acknowledge his faults on film and...

Amazon Pilot Reviews: ‘The Tick,’ Jill Soloway’s ‘I Love Dick’ & ‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson,’ Ranked

19 August 2016 8:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jean-Claude Van Johnson

“’Timecop’ is like ‘Looper’ with Bruce Willis, but a million times better,” is just one of the gems spoken in “Jean-Claude Van Johnson” which is as gloriously ridiculous as its title.

What the Amazon pilot lacks in plot — action star Jean-Claude Van Damme comes out of retirement to act as a private contractor specializing in kicking ass and doing the splits — it makes up for with indiscriminate jabs at everything and anyone, including its star, Hollywood, pretentious foodies and even America’s Undulating Beefcake, Channing Tatum. A surprising appearance by Phylicia Rashad, who gamely plays Jean-Claude’s agent, is a comic revelation. She delivers the most absurd movie pitches with such enthusiasm that we’re ready to sign up for the “P.F. Chang’s” biopic ourselves.

The only real disappointment is the lackluster treatment of Jean-Claude’s love interest Vanessa (Kat Foster), who isn’t given much to work with story-wise. »

Coming Distractions: The End Of A Gun trailer reminds us that Steven Seagal still makes movies

18 August 2016 9:37 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Looks like someone is really stepping up their game in the perpetual “I can nap through a movie more consistently than you” competition with Bruce Willis. Steven Seagal, who is only vaguely aware that he’s continued to make movies throughout the 21st century (including, let us never forget, his immortal role as “Cock Puncher” in The Onion Movie), is back with what appears to be his seventh (!) role in 2016, for End Of A Gun. While costar Jade Ewen seems determined to actually act, Seagal once again proves he knows better than to exert effort. Effort, after all, can lead to the heartbreak of sweat. So instead, he sleepily ambles his way through a plot involving a former DEA agent stealing two million dollars from a drug lord, and then going after the blow-dried villain when he kidnaps the woman who helped Seagal.

The trailer more or less walks ...

It's a given Rumer Willis will age gracefully, given her parents' genes, but the 28-year-old gave everyone a taste of what old age could look like, thanks to Snapchat. Willis, who celebrated her birthday on Tuesday, posted a photo with a filter making her look like an older woman covered in wrinkles. "Looking fresh at 28," Willis joked, and captioned the photo, "Happy Birthday to me #feelingfreshandfleeky #aginggracefully." But if Willis ages the way her mother Demi Moore has, she won't be seeing wrinkles anytime soon. The former Dancing With the Stars winner, and daughter of actor Bruce Willis, also posted »

Trends and the Lack of Originality in Hollywood

13 August 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Eric Bay-Andersen on trends and the lack of originality in Hollywood…

At the beginning of this year I went to the cinema and saw a preview of all the big films coming out in 2016, and it really depressed me because almost every upcoming ‘event’ film was a sequel, a re-boot, or a prequel to the re-imagined spin-off of a TV show adaptation! It’s gotten to the point where I even get disheartened by book adaptations, which is silly I know because there are so many great published stories out there that are worthy of being adapted for the big-screen. I guess I just find it sad that most film-makers these days seem to look to the best-sellers list for their inspiration, rather than their own imagination. I mean, if a new book comes out and is a big success, then of course someone will make it into a film at some point, »

Great Job, Internet!: Woman recreates Misery, screams, “What kind of cockadoodie bookstore is this?”

12 August 2016 1:18 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

As far as portraits of obsessive fandom go, it’s hard to beat Misery—either Stephen King’s 1987 novel, or the 1990 film adaptation that won Kathy Bates an Oscar for her portrayal of an unhinged fan. But what do you do if the pop culture item you’re in love with is Misery itself?

Head to your local Barnes & Noble and start screaming, apparently. That’s the takeaway from this video—as amazing now as when it started making the rounds online a few years ago—that sees what would happen if real-life people were forced to contend with Annie Wilkes in the flesh. Apparently dating back to 2011, when a group called Generic Theater posted it as promotion for an upcoming stage production based on the book (not to be confused with the Bruce Willis-starring one from a couple of years ago, penned by William Goldman ...

Writer-director Fin Edquist on the slow birth of Bad Girl

9 August 2016 8:56 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Samara Weaving and Sara West in Bad Girl.

Bad Girl, set for its world premiere at Miff tomorrow evening, is a film some 10 years in the making.

The psychological thriller charts the story of Amy (Sara West), a repeat juvenile offender who has been given one last chance by her adoptive parents.

She strikes up an unlikely friendship with a seemingly well-meaning local girl Chloe (Samara Weaving), but as secrets and obsessions are revealed, things quickly turn toxic. Amy finds herself fighting for her life and the future of the family she.d previously maligned.

Writer-director Fin Edquist told If that the focus of the story is the meaning of family.

.What is a family, and who gets to decide who.s in and who.s out, and is blood thicker than water?,. he said.

Having already won best dramatic feature at the Wa Screen Awards last month, Bad Girl »
