Lionsgate won an auction for “Ballerina,” with Warner Bros. and Universal also expressing interest in the script, which centers on a young woman raised as an assassin who must hunt down the assassins who killed her own family. It’s said to be similar to Luc Besson’s 1990 actioner “La Femme Nikita,” which starred Anne Parillaud as a teen junkie who murders a policeman and becomes a skilled assassin.

Hatten also wrote the comedy “Maximum King!” which was named to the 2016 Black List. He wrote that script and “Ballerina” while working for Robert Downey Jr.’s Team Downey. “Maximum King!” is a fictional look at Stephen King writing and directing the 1986 horror-comedy movie “Maximum Overdrive,” which »

Too Hollywood for art houses and too art house for Hollywood, iconoclastic French filmmaker Luc Besson has always had to blaze his own trail. Unwilling — or unable — to compromise from the very start (his debut feature was a dialogue-free post-apocalyptic drama about a waterless future where it occasionally rains fish), Besson continues to offset his pigheadedness with his passion. He eventually got so sick of looking for support that he launched his own production company, EuropaCorp, which has become one of the most profitable in all of Europe by churning out the kind of carnivalesque shlock that made its founder so famous in the first place. Besson may not have directed the likes of “Taken,” “Lock-Out,” and “Colombiana,” but his fingerprints are all over them.

Kennedy ran the successful 1960 presidential campaign for his brother, John F. Kennedy, and served as U.S. Attorney General and top adviser to his brother between 1961 and 1963. He remained in the post for President Lyndon B. Johnson for several months after his brother’s assassination, then resigned to run for the U.S. Senate, representing New York.
Kennedy served until his assassination in June, 1968, while seeking the Democratic presidential nomination on a platform of ending U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.

Director Nikolaj Arcel’s The Dark Tower is about a legendary hero on a nearly impossible quest to save all of reality from an evil wizard, but it looks like Arcel’s next film will be slightly less fantastical. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’ll be directing Matt Damon in Rfk, a long-in-the-works biopic about Robert F. Kennedy. Damon is set to play the former presidential candidate, who was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan in 1968, with Arcel writing the script.
No other actors are attached to Rfk yet, but hopefully the movie doesn’t spend too much time putting together a big-name cast at the expense of virtually everything else in the production, which is the pit that Emilio Estevez’s Bobby fell into way back in 2006. Or maybe Arcel should just get the same cast (including Martin Sheen, Shia Labeouf, Lindsay Lohan, Anthony Hopkins, and Demi Moore »

Kevin Phillips’ feature directorial debut is a knock-out. There’s no other way to put it, really. Comparison is being made by many to Stand By Me, but I think it’s closer to Jacob Estes’ 2004 thriller Mean Creek. To talk about either film, the same spoiler is unavoidable: a bully dies, accidentally, and the rest of the film is how the characters deal with it. Where the two films depart is that fallout and the tone therein. Mean Creek handles how the guilt can consume you, and while Super Dark Times absolutely deals with that, the manifestation of it is drastically different. It’s strange, occasionally comedic, and always intriguing.

Emilio Estevez is way past playing Billy the Kid ... especially now that cops tell us his gun was stolen. Law enforcement sources say the incident went down back in May as the 'Mighty Ducks' and "Young Guns" star was staying at the Oceana hotel in Santa Monica. We're told he parked his car with the valet ...and 2 days later got back in his car only to find his Glock and ammo were missing. »

Director Dan Gilroy has a new script making the rounds in Hollywood that has two of the leads of his 2014 film “Nightcrawler,” Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo, attached to star, Deadline reports. Gilroy’s directorial debut about a con man (Gyllenhaal) navigating the world of Los Angeles crime journalism attracted an Oscar nomination for best original screenplay.
Few details about the new project are known, aside from the fact that it is set in the art world. Gilroy’s second film as a director, 2018’s “Inner City,” stars Denzel Washington as Roman Israel, a driven, idealistic defense attorney who, through a tumultuous series of events, finds himself in a crisis that leads to extreme action, according to IMDb. The film co-stars Colin Farrell and Carmen Ejogo.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off celebrated its 30th birthday last year, but the John Hughes' teen-comedy classic is forever a fan favorite. Enough so that Stranger Things star Joe Keery re-enacted iconic scenes from the film for a recent Domino's Pizza ad campaign.
To capitalize even more on that eternally cool teen mojo, the pizza chain has teamed up with Epix, the premium cable network owned by MGM, to offer up a free live stream of Ferris, Cameron and Sloane having the best day ever playing hooky from school and avoiding the bumbling Edward R. »

Marvel Music/Hollywood Records have released the digital versions of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Awesome Mix Vol. 2 songs-only album and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 original score album by composer Tyler Bates (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “John Wick Chapter 2,” “Watchmen”).
The film opens in U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is filled with great action, humor and performances, but it is also infused with a new mixed tape and soundtrack, a dynamic that resonated deeply with audiences in the first film as evidenced by the success of the soundtrack album. The Grammy-nominated “Guardians of the Galaxy” soundtrack reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first soundtrack album consisting entirely of previously released songs to top the chart. The album was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A.

With a multi-generational reunion of sorts between Brat Pack alum Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy’s son in the works, we’re taking the opportunity to catch up with all of the former ’80s teen phenoms — and their offspring — over 30 years after they first earned their iconic nickname.
During a recent appearance on The Moms, McCarthy revealed that his 15-year-old son, Sam, will appear in an upcoming movie called All These Small Moments alongside the famous red-head.
“She emailed me on the first day and she said, ‘Your son just did a scene and when he walked away, it was »

Earth’s future has always proved a playground of possibility for scriptwriters and directors. Artists are rarely content to make do within the confines of what is merely possible. Setting a movie years in the future is a way of letting their minds off the leash, while usually offering an allegorical reflection of the times in which we currently live. As one fictional time-travel expert once said, “The future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.”
Snow White & The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders is the latest in a long line of visual soothsayers who has made his own fate in the form of Ghost In The Shell, which offers us a metropolitan futureworld full of gymnastic augmented cybernetic agents, colossal 3D advertisements and the increasingly regular sight of Juliette Binoche in a lab-coat.

I’ve mentioned before that I hit a wave of nostalgia at least once a day. Well, that happened yesterday while flipping through the channels and a 90s comedy classic came on. I hope you guys remember the movie Men at Work from 1990. The film was directed and written by none other than Emilio Estevez. Who did it star? Brothers Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen. It was probably the only movie that made being a garbage man in La look cool and make being an Lapd officer look completely lame. If you’ll recall the movie centers on two garbage men

“It’s like papa bear; you have to protect,” Foxx said outside of the Regal La Live in downtown Los Angeles. “What I always tell my daughters is that if you select a guy, make sure that what you like, he is behind you. That doesn’t intimidate him.”
He recently worked with his daughters, Annalise Bishop and 2016 Miss Golden Globe Corinne Foxx, in an upcoming film. According to Foxx, both of his daughters have a knack for acting.
“My oldest daughter is seasoned, but my younger daughter is so funny. She’s going to steal the show. It’s amazing to work with your daughters,” he said. “There is a comfort level from the start.”
