Ving Rhames Set For ‘Mission: Impossible 5′

19 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

In what’s probably the least surprising return to a franchise, Mr Ving Rhames has been confirmed to return by director Christopher McQuarrie via the medium of Twitter.

His little cameo at the end of the impressive Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol was possibly a little nod to future team-ups and so this news isn’t exactly a surprise but will see him gloriously to the great little cast of Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg. Sadly it seems that Paula Patton won’t be returning, even though she seriously kicked ass in the previous mission. I’m wondering if she couldn’t get over the death of Sawyer from Lost, or the fellow recruit played by Josh Holloway that she lost. No bad pun intended.

I can’t wait to see Imf agent Luther Stickell once again as this franchise I’ve really enjoyed since it came back in »

Ving Rhames Will Return For Mission: Impossible 5

18 August 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though his Luther Stickell only had a brief cameo appearance in 2011′s excellent Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Ving Rhames, who starred in the franchise’s first three entries alongside Tom Cruise, is apparently returning in a larger capacity for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5.

An expert computer hacker with the Imf, Stickell was last seen grabbing a drink with fellow Imf agent Ethan Hunt (Cruise) after the central mission of Ghost Protocol. Though the character was never involved with that high-stakes mission to stop a nuclear attack on the United States, he did tell Ethan “see you in Kandahar” before departing, possibly setting up a storyline for Mission: Impossible 5. Thanks to director Christopher McQuarrie, at least we know now that Rhames has a part in the fivequel:

Ving Rhames Returns For Mission: Impossible 5

18 August 2014 12:23 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Throughout the Mission: Impossible franchise, there have been two constants. The first is Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt, dangling from a thing and looking good doing it. The second is Ving Rhames' Luther Stickell, laughing the laugh of the one man who has survived working with Hunt for more than a decade. And now director Christopher McQuarrie has confirmed that he will return for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5.Welcome back, Mr. Rhames. cc: @TomCruise @simonpegg @Renner4Real #MI5Diary— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) August 16, 2014There has been no word yet on a plot for the film, or whether it will end up with a Ghost Protocol-style subtitle, but we do know that it will be shooting in Vienna, starting any day now, and in London. Simon Pegg will also be returning as Benji Dunn, and Jeremy Renner as William Brandt. Wallander and Hercules actress Rebecca Ferguson is also set to join them, »

Christopher McQuarrie confirms the return of Ving Rhames for the next Mission: Impossible movie...

Production on the fifth Mission: Impossible film gets underway in the UK later this year, with Jack Reacher helmer Christopher McQuarrie reuniting with Tom Cruise to direct the film. Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner are also confirmed to return, with Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson set to be amongst the new additions to the cast.

On his Twitter feed, Christopher McQuarrie has confirmed the return of Ving Rhames too, hopefully in a bigger role that we saw him in towards the end of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol back in 2011. Rhames will reprise the role of Luther Stickell, having played the part in every Mission: Impossible film to date.

The film is due in cinemas in December 2015.

Mission: Impossible 5 Welcomes Back Ving Rhames

17 August 2014 7:41 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol felt like a mini-reboot for the franchise as it came off more like a team movie rather than Ethan Hunt and Friends.  Oddly, it was a team movie missing Hunt’s long-running teammate, Luther Stickell, who was played by Ving Rhames, although he did have a cameo at the end. Thankfully, it looks like Luther is back in the Imf as Mission: Impossible 5 director Christopher McQuarrie has tweeted “Welcome Back, Mr. Rhames” and then Cc'ing the Twitter handles for co-stars Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, and Jeremy Renner.  While I’m a little bummed that Paula Patton isn’t returning, I’m glad Rhames is back in the mix.  As we previously reported, Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson may also join the picture.  Mission: Impossible 5 opens December 25, 2015.

Ving Rhames is Returning for 'Mission: Impossible 5'

17 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night director Christopher McQuarrie tweeted out a confirmation that Ving Rhames will be returning to play Luther Stickell in Mission: Impossible 5 alongside Tom Cruise who's back as Ethan Hunt, Simon Pegg returning as tech guru Benji Dunn and Jeremy Renner reprising his role as William Brandt from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. The tweet does not mention Rebecca Ferguson who's assumed to be taking on the lead female role in this film or Alec Baldwin who's also rumored to be playing a high-ranking CIA officer overseeing Hunt's division, similar to the role played by Laurence Fishburne in Mission: Impossible III. Filming is expected to begin soon for a December 25, 2015 release and as for Rhames' return, I hope it's more than just the cameo role he played in Ghost Protocol, I like having him around in this franchise. More please. https://twitter.com/chrismcquarrie/statuses/500756253237600257 »

Ving Rhames will return for Mission: Impossible 5

17 August 2014 2:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie is hard at work on developing the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, which will see the return of Tom Cruise as Imf agent Ethan Hunt and several of the last installment’s players, including Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner. Now, thanks to McQuarrie himself, we have word on another actor returning to the long-running franchise: Ving Rhames.

Rhames was rumored to return, but today McQuarrie took to Twitter to officially announce the news to his followers.

Rhames was last seen in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, in a small cameo near the tail-end of the film. His character Luther Stickell had a role in the first three films of the series, so it will be cool to see him return to the Imf team.

Film Review: ‘Marie’s Story’

14 August 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Born five years after Helen Keller in Vertou, France, Marie Heurtin faced many of the same challenges, growing up deaf and blind in a society whose instinct was to institutionalize such girls. “Marie’s Story,” therefore, is not so different from Keller’s, amounting to a French “Miracle Worker” with the bonus miracle that it was a nun who accomplished the inspirational breakthrough. Acquired by Film Movement in advance of its Locarno Film Festival premiere, this compelling 19th-century drama offers slight but satisfying variations on one of American drama’s best-loved tales, spelling awards heft abroad and sleeper potential Stateside.

Whereas every American child knows how Keller learned to communicate, thanks to her autobiography and the 1962 film, Heurtin’s story isn’t widely known in France — nor is the unfortunate meme of off-color jokes schoolchildren make concerning Keller’s twin handicaps. That should make for a relatively pure viewing experience abroad, »

Panicking over Emmy predictions: Ricky Gervais or Jim Parsons? (Editors' slugfest)'

13 August 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Beware: The Emmy race for Best Comedy Series is a cliffhanger. Sure, Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") won three out of the past four years and now currently leads Gold Derby's racetrack odds (11/8), but watch out! That wily rascal Ricky Gervais ("Derek") is not far behind (2/1). -Break- Let's not forget that Gervais pulled off a jawdropper in this contest back in 2007 when nominated for "Extras," beating Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock"), Tony Shalhoub ("Monk") and even Steve Carell, who was nommed for the U.S. version of Gervais' trailblazing "The Office." Now my fellow Gold Derby Editors Chris Beachum, Paul Sheehan and I are in a real prediction pickle. Who to back? Chris and I choose Gervais. Paul plays it safe with Parsons. Who's correct? Maybe none of us? Watch us slug it out below. To follow along, you should know that the six nominees submitted these episodes to Emmy »

In the War Zone: Trailer for Guantanamo-Set Drama Starring Stewart, Maadi

8 August 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Camp X-Ray’ trailer 2014: Kristen Stewart and Payman Maadi in Guantanamo’s ‘war zone’ (photo: Kristen Stewart in ‘Camp X-Ray’) The official Camp X-Ray trailer is out. "Make no mistake about it. This is a war zone," a male voice tells the recruits (and us) at the start of the movie trailer, set in Guantanamo’s temporary detention center Camp X-Ray. A "war zone" in more ways than one; he’s referring not only to the physical danger faced by the U.S. military guards (and their Muslim prisoners — or rather, "detainees"), but also, and more ominously, to a war of minds and mindsets between the two groups, who may have more in common with each other than is apparent on the surface. Private Amy Cole aka Kristen Stewart is forewarned: "You can talk to ‘em, but do not let these guys learn anything about you. Do not let them get inside your head. »

The Weirdest Places Hilaria Baldwin Has Ever Done Yoga

By Christopher Rosa 

If you don’t already know Alec Baldwin‘s wife Hilaria, her Instagram account should still catch your eye. The pint-sized yoga teacher, Extra correspondent, and mother to 11-month-old daughter Carmen puts her otherworldy flexibility on display on a regular basis, and is notorious for getting herself in quite interesting positions and locations when she’s trying to get her meditation on.

And when we say interesting, we mean strange — in the nicest way possible, of course. The proof is in the pudding: In the 15 shots we pulled from her account, Hilaria “Oms” to her heart’s content on top of a lawnmower, her daughter’s crib, and over train tracks, among other bizarre places. We have to admit: Her adventurous yoga spirit inspires us to venture out of our air conditioned studios and see what Mother Nature has to offer. Take a look »

Snow White Prequel (Stupidly) Drops Snow White, Gets New Title and Release Date

‘The Huntsman’ release date announced as ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2′ drops Snow White aka Kristen Stewart (photo: Chris Hemsworth in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’) Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has a new title, as the "sequel" to Rupert Sanders’ 2012 fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to arrive on screens in 2016 without Snow White — played by Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad Joan of Arc-ish heroine (minus the burning at the stake) in the original film. So, Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has now been renamed The Huntsman. Now, does it sound idiotic to drop Snow White from what was purportedly going to be a Snow White movie sequel?
