Cooper is set to star in "Chef," a drama directed by John Wells for Sony Pictures about a drug-addicted chef with Michelin-starred restaurant dreams. A source close to the project tells The Sun newspaper, "Gordon's going to be giving Bradley a crash-course in cookery and teaching him some flash tricks like knife-work so Bradley looks like an experienced chef."
Though "Chef" won't start production until 2014, the film has already been making headlines. Sony sent a cease-and-desist letter over a comedy project of the same name, which Jon Favreau plans to produce, direct and star in. Also attached to Favreau's "Chef" are Robert Downey, Jr., Sofia Vergara and John Leguizamo. »
Seth MacFarlane just announced he definitely won’t be hosting the Oscars next year. Personally, I’d say that’s a good thing. We only needed one year of broad, bland, half-heartedly “subversive” laughs. Bring on the new emcees. Here are my 10 suggestions.
10. Stephen Colbert — His gleeful, mock-you-to-your-face persona is an ideal fit for the self-serious ceremony.
9. Seth Meyers — He’s ready. He’d zing everybody who needed it and look good doing it.
7. Sandra Bullock — The Oscar winner’s best work is always on an award telecast stage. Deadpan, funny, and (believably) self-deprecating.
6. Cher – Give me a befuddled, unapologetic, bawdy hosting gig for Cher. Let her Oscar glow shine once again, AMPAS.
5. Ricky Gervais – Believe it or not, I kind »

We love Benedict Cumberbatch over here in England. Well, not everyone, but the vast majority of people I know love the man. Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch has been on our radars for years over in the UK, but it has only been recently that he has started to explode on the international stage.
Sherlock was a big milestone in his career and his turn as Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous character has caught the eye of many around the world, and rightfully so. Cumberbatch owns the part and I don’t think too many would argue that he eclipses the people’s favorite Robert Downey Jnr.’s take on the character. That is no mean feat. The people love Downey Jr..

In her new film, The Bling Ring, she gets Emma Waston to swing around the upright. Indeed, in many of her films, there is a pole-dancing scene. Is it something to do with alienation?
It's the old distraction one-two, known in Hollywood as sexposition: if you've got a boring dialogue sequence – two cops yakking about a case, maybe – stick it in a strip club, where the sight of cavorting female flesh will cover up your thimble-brained story's deficiencies. Pole-dancing on screen is also becoming bit of a rite of passage for your classy, upscale actress (see Natalie Portman in Closer). But quite why film director-cum-fashionista Sofia Coppola should be so fascinated – even obsessed – is less clear.

Anderson has been developing the project for a while now, with Robert Downey, Jr. originally set for the lead of Larry ‘Doc’ Sportello. And whilst Downey, Jr. ultimately moved on from the project, with Joaquin Phoenix now set to take the lead, the anticipation surrounding it hasn’t dimmed in the slightest.

Following the success of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers last year, which fast became one of the most successful movies of all time, talk very quickly turned to a sequel, and what Whedon would bring to the table for The Avengers 2.
The Avengers was such a game-changing, bar-raising movie, and it’s difficult to imagine (until we actually see it in 2015) what direction Whedon will go for The Avengers 2. I have complete faith that he’s going to outdo even himself – not just in terms of bigger blockbuster moments, but in terms of bringing us a character-driven movie that is every bit as entertaining as its predecessor (see our top ten list of who we think may appear here).
One of the things we’ve all naturally been wondering is who will be showing up for round two, amongst the faces we’ve already seen in the Marvel »

Iron Man 3 might have enjoyed the second biggest opening weekend in Us box office history, but with Robert Downey Jr.’s contract now expired, the status of a potential fourth film remains clouded in uncertainty. Downey is currently thought to be in negotiations over a potential return, although whether that will be in another solo movie or simply another Avengers outing remains to be seen. “I’d go start another one tomorrow,” said Downey of the Iron Man franchise, “but it’s not tomorrow. And there are a lot of other considerations....

Only in the film business can a movie make $84 million over the weekend and still be considered a disappointment. But that’s what some people are saying about Star Trek: Into Darkness. Since it opened Weds night, the film has grossed that amount, which is about equal to what the previous Star Trek reboot made, during its first weekend in 2009, adjusted for today dollars. There were originally predictions of a $100 million weekend, but it fell short. Still $84 million is definitely nothing to sneeze at.

The J.J. Abrams sequel Star Trek Into Darkness beamed up another solid day at the North American box office on Friday with James Kirk, Spock and the rest of the Enterprise crew plotting a huge opening weekend. Far behind on Friday but still performing exceptionally well are holdovers Iron Man 3 and The Great Gatsby.
On Friday, Star Trek Into Darkness earned $22 million for Paramount Pictures. Tack that on to the $13.5 million it earned on Thursday and the sequel's domestic box office total now stands at $35 million.
Star Trek Into Darkness figures to pick up some steam headed into the weekend despite its Friday trailing the first Star Trek from J.J. Abrams by $4.9 million. Audience have given the film a solid "A" CinemaScore which usually translates into a bump for Saturday and Sunday business. It is well within reason that Star Trek Into Darkness will cap its opening four-day weekend around the $100 million mark. »
You can’t say that Marvel doesn’t like to plan. Their mission to dominate our cinema screens and break box office records is showing no signs of stopping. The world which started back in 2008 with Iron Man, has gone on to make billions of dollars and ensure that Robert Downey Jr. has six yachts. With Ant-Man leading the charge for the third stage of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, it turns out there’s more tricks up the studio’s sleeve.
With Iron Man 3 kicking off Phase Two of their cinematic universe with a resounding wallop and ka-ching! – the remaining projects have got some big clanky boots to fill. Next up is Thor: The Dark World, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians Of The Galaxy and closing out the middle chapter is the glue that binds them together: The Avengers 2.
That brings us to Summer 2015. Where next, »

Feige told Entertainment Weekly that the franchise's central character Tony Stark could continue to appear for decades to come.
However, Feige said that although talks are ongoing with Downey Jr, Iron Man could undergo a reboot were he not to return.
Feige explained: "I believe there will be a fourth Iron Man film and a fifth and a sixth and a 10th and a 20th.
Speaking about returning to the role, Downey Jr said »
During the world premiere for Iron Man 3, a smiling Joss Whedon confirmed the first draft for The Avengers 2 was completed. Amidst the shrieking fanboy frenzy, he also let slip that a brother-sister act would make their Marvel cinematic debut in the film. Whedon, whose Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. series for Marvel has been picked up by ABC, has since been interviewed by IGN. The interview has confirmed that the rumours are true, and the sibling double act are in his first script.
When asked about their presence in the script, Whedon said:
“You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.”

Much has already been written, both on these pages and many others, about the landmark Hollywood-China co-production that is Marvel and Dmg Entertainment's Iron Man 3. The film, directed by Shane Black, is the third solo outing for Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark, and has proved a phenomenal success around the world. As it closes in on $1 billion at the global box office, the film is on the cusp of breaking $100 million in China, despite the fact that the producers withdrew their application for official co-production status at the eleventh hour. We knew ahead of time that the mainland release of Iron Man 3 would feature exclusive footage, filmed in China with homegrown stars Wang Xueqi and Fan Bingbing, But what exactly would these...

With Iron Man 3 breaking box office records, nobody is happier about the film's success than actor Ashley Hamilton, who plays a small but pivotal role of former military officer Jack Taggert. Hamilton, whose band The Wondergirls also performs the song "Let's Go All the Way" on the soundtrack with Robbie Williams, says he's "really grateful for somebody giving me an opportunity again. I just didn't have that before." The 38-year-old son of George Hamilton has had more than his fair share of troubles when it came to drug and alcohol abuse.

We knew it would be big, but did anyone really think it would be this big? After just 25 days on release, Marvel's Iron Man 3 has become the first film of 2013 to cross $1 billion at the global box office, and only the 16th film in history to achieve that feat.
As of today the Shane Black-directed solo sequel is now the fourth biggest comic book movie of all time behind The Avengers ($1.511 billion), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.084 billion) and The Dark Knight ($1.004 billion). It looks certain to surpass both Dark Knight films and go on to crack the all time top ten, with tenth place currently occupied by Pixar's Toy Story 3 on $1.063 billion, and could even end up occupying a spot in the top five.

Marvel's Phase Two is already underway with Iron Man 3 in theaters, and Thor: The Dark World coming this Thanksgiving. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is shooting right now, with Guardians of the Galaxy deep into pre-production and The Avengers 2 screenplay completed. So that means Marvel is of course thinking about their Phase Three plans with only Ant-Man confirmed at this point. What else might be included in this third leg of the Marvel movie legacy?
Kevin Feige recently caught up with Entertainment Weekly, and offered a list of potential titles, with the fact that Doctor Strange is likely to be confirmed next. While we've heard most of these titles batted about the Internet before, one title sticks out like a sore thumb, and that's Marvel Zombies. We haven't really heard this mentioned before in terms of being included as a Marvel Phase Three project.
