Zach Braff To Direct and Star in New Comedy Pilot ‘Start Up’ at ABC

6 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Actor Zach Braff received his first break as protagonist J.D. in the NBC medical sitcom “Scrubs,” about the lives of employees at Sacred Heart teaching hospital. The series garnered quite a bit of attention for its single-camera style (generally uncommon for sitcoms when “Scrubs” first aired in 2001), surreal vignettes, use of popular music, and its frequent tonal shifts. For his performance, Braff was nominated for an Emmy in 2005 and thrice nominated for a Golden Globe in 2005, 2006, and 2007.

Top 5 Movie Mistakes: The Dark Knight (video)

29 August 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Probably the most beloved of all Batman films (recently the most mentioned film in the Twitter #fav7films campaign at that, not to mention every other "Best of" list in existence), Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, starring Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Michael Caine, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman is a masterwork of the comic book genre and...

[Review] Level Up

24 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

You watch enough hero-backed-into-a-corner action films like Crank, Taken, or The Equalizer and you start to find your mind drifting away from the sheer monotony of their progression. Their characters are built to survive these situations no matter how dire because people want to see the good guy win. They want to see him risk everything, travel in the murky areas of morality, and be the badass society doesn’t allow them to be, but that ultimate victory is key because escapism only works when your surrogate onscreen walks away. How else could there be a sequel? But what happens when a Joe Schmo is thrust into proving his mettle through the same type of scenario? What would those films look like through a Shaun of the Dead filter?

The answer arrives in the form of Adam Randall‘s Level Up, a high-concept thriller wherein slacker Matt (Josh Bowman) is »

Mr Robot season 2 episode 7 review: Handshake

19 August 2016 1:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alec Bojalad Aug 19, 2016

Mr Robot delivers its best episode yet this season in Handshake, an instalment that reveals what the show has been up to these past weeks...

This review contains spoilers.

2.7 Handshake

Mr Robot loves to trick us.

It’s one of the main appeals of the show. TV as a medium has historically given the viewer what he or she wants. After all, if they’re not satisfied enough to stick around around for the commercials, what’s the point? The joy of Mr Robot and many other shows like it is that it’s willing to openly, sometimes gleefully fuck with us. It deceives us; never gives us a full portrait of what’s going on.

So what happens when viewers are clever enough or simply well-numbered and well-tv-trained enough to see through the illusion? Handshake finally reveals to the audience that many of them were right all along. »

Looking back at Escape To Victory

18 August 2016 8:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Aug 30, 2016

Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine and a good chunk of Ipswich Town Football Club? It can only be Escape To Victory...

These are strange days indeed for fans of the beautiful game - never before has unbridled hope been so freely mixed with jaded cynicism in the sport we love. The result? A jarring draught indeed, a football concoction that is dizzyingly exhilarating yet morosely taxing, much like the homemade ‘bathroom cocktails’ that my sister used to dare me to drink as a child, odd-tasting brews made from shaving foam and perfume that put hairs on my seven-year old chest whilst presumably lopping years off my life.

That paradoxical blend of fair and foul will be familiar to anybody that follows football these days. International minnows Wales have been running roughshod over half of Europe, and Leicester’s unstoppable charge to the Premiership title against all five thousand »

Top 5 Charlize Theron movies just in time for her birthday!Top 5 Charlize Theron movies just in time for her birthday!Amanda Wood8/7/2016 10:00:00 Am

Charlize Theron might be one of the more low-key celebrities in Hollywood when it comes to her personal life, but her work is anything but.

Charlize turns the big 4-0 today, and we’re celebrating with a list of her top movies. She’s been in a lot of films over the years, with as diverse a body of work as any of the best actors in history. Her performance in last year’s Mad Max: Fury Road was a tour de force that completely blew us out of the water, and we can’t wait to see her hop into a high-powered vehicle again in next year's Fast 8.

Check out our top Charlize Theron movies below, and let us know if we missed »

New to Streaming: ‘Last Days in the Desert,’ Kelly Reichardt, ‘The Little Prince,’ and More

5 August 2016 9:07 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Cloverfield (Matt Reeves)

Science-fiction films don’t get much more immersive than Cloverfield, Matt Reeves‘ thrilling feature debut, putting us directly into the shoes of an alien invasion. One of the rare cases in which intriguing, tight-lipped marketing actually delivered on its promise, this sci-fi found-footage thriller has memorable setpieces at every turn, complete with a sense of genuine panic, a feeling that other post-9/11 films often render as exploitative. »

5 August 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

MGM is developing a remake of the 1988 Steve Martin / Michael Caine comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, with Variety reporting that Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect, Grimsby) is attached to star.

The site reports that the remake will present a modern day take on the material and follows “two female scam artists, one low rent and the other high class, who compete to swindle a naive tech prodigy out of his fortune.”

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels becomes the second 80s comedy remake to have Wilson attached, with the actress also on board to star in an updated version of 1980’s Private Benjamin.

Rebel Wilson to Headline Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Remake

4 August 2016 5:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gender-swapped remakes seem to be en vogue these days, with a Splash remake being set up this week starring Channing Tatum as the mer-man, and Jillian Bell as the female lead for Disney. Today we have word that another gender-swapped remake is coming together, with MGM attaching Rebel Wilson to star in a remake of the 1988 classic Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. As of now, the actress is the first cast member to come aboard, with no director in place at this time.

Variety reports that this story will be updated for the 21st Century, following two female con artists, one who is utterly low-brow while the other is quite sophisticated, who try to hustle a "naive tech prodigy" out of his hard-earned fortune. The 1988 movie which starred Steve Martin and Michael Caine, was actually a remake of the script for the 1964 Marlon Brando movie Bedtime Story. The screenplay for this remake »

Calm down, 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' was already a remake of another movie

4 August 2016 2:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As with any actor whose work I love, there are films that stand out as particularly great in the career of Steve Martin, and one of those films is Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. There are many great things about Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Michael Caine is a perfect foil for Martin, whose work as nascent con man Freddy Benson is inspired. Frank Oz does a terrific job of creating this romantic, beautiful French fantasyland where people are going to believe the incredible lies told by Freddy and Caine’s master bullshit artist Lawrence Jamieson. Glenne Headly gives one of her most nimble performances as Janet Colgate, the poor defenseless tourist who ends up targeted by Freddy and Lawrence. Ian McDiarmid, best known to the fanboy nation as Emperor Palpatine, is dry and deadly as Arthur, Lawrence’s manservant. Miles Goodman’s score is terrific, one of the great comedy scores of the ‘80s, »

Newswire: Rebel Wilson to star in gender-swapped Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake

4 August 2016 1:57 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Thanks to the popularity of Ghostbusters, Hollywood studios are slowly opening their eyes to the existence of women, who up until recently were thought to be incapable of starring in remakes of movies that originally starred men. The latest experiment in making movies that aren’t all about dudes is an update of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, the 1988 comedy starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine as con men who are trying to steal money from an heiress. Variety reports that Rebel Wilson will star in a remake of the film as one of the eponymous scoundrels; the other scoundrel hasn’t been cast yet, but Variety says that together they’ll be trying to get money from “a naive tech prodigy” this time around.

It doesn’t sound like a director is attached yet, but Wilson will also be one of the film’s producers and its screenplay was written ...

MGM has another remake on tap. This time they're putting a different twist on Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and they've recruited Rebel Wilson to be at the center of it.  The 1988 original, starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine (which, in itself was a remastering of the 1964 Marlon Brando-David Niven film Bedtime Story) featured two con men trying to bilk an heiress out of her...

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels being remade, Rebel Wilson to star

4 August 2016 12:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Aug 5, 2016

Rebel Wilson will star in a film update of the Steve Martin/Michael Caine con artist movie Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Next to be spat out of the Hollywood remake machine? A fresh take on Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, the 1988 movie that starred Steve Martin and Michael Caine. It’s worth noting from the off that Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in itself was a remake of the 1964 movie Bedtime Story, starring Marlon Brando and David Niven.

So then. The new take on Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will recast the two leads as women, and Rebel Wilson is to take one of the roles. Jac Schaeffer has written the screenplay for the new movie, although a director is not yet on board the project. Neither do we know who will star opposite Wilson at this stage.

It sounds like it’s early days, but Variety also reports that Rebel Wilson is circling »

Rebel Wilson To Star In Female-Led Remake of ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’

4 August 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Gender swapping in remakes is becoming the new norm in Hollywood these day. With the all-female “Ghostbusters” and an “Ocean’s Eleven” starring Sandra Bullock on the way, MGM is adding a female-led “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” to the list.

Fresh off her “Absolutely Fabulous” cameo, Rebel Wilson has just committed to star in the remake of the 1988 comedy starring Steven Martin and Michael Caine. Per Variety, the updated version will bring con artistry to the 21st century and feature two female scam artists, one low rent and the other high class, who compete to swindle a naive tech prodigy out of his fortune.

The script is being written by Jac Schaeffer. Roger Birnbaum and Wilson are set to produce. No director is attached at the moment.

Rebel Wilson Will Headline A Remake Of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

4 August 2016 10:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As if wishing to prove correct the accusation that Hollywood is currently engaged in a mission to gender swap its entire back catalogue – as if that goes some way to addressing issues of inequality within the industry – MGM has announced its intention to remake Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, as a female-led project. Rebel Wilson will produce and star in this revisiting of the popular 1988 comedy.

The original starred Steve Martin and Michael Caine as two con men attempting to covertly free an heiress of her money. It is a well-regarded entry into the comedy genre of the late-80s – reflecting the arrogance and excesses of the era, combined with the comedy-sparring of Martin and Caine. This new version – written by Jac Schaeffer – will see the lead roles gender-swapped, as two female con artists pit themselves against each other to manipulate a naïve tech industry genius into handing over his millions.
