The late screenwriter Thomas S. Cook, who passed away in January aged 65, will be honored with the Morgan Cox Award for Guild service at the Writers' Guild Awards in February, it was announced today. Cook was best known for co-writing the 1979 issue thriller "The China Syndrome," for which he shared in an Oscar nomination and a WGA Award. (He and his co-writers lost the former to Steve Tesich for "Breaking Away.") It would be his only big-screen credit. Cook subsequently worked extensively in television, collaborating on such projects as a 2000 remake of "High Noon," and 1995's Laurence Fishburne-starring »

Having secured the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck) and the Amazon Princess (Gal Gadot), it seems that casting on Batman vs. Superman is moving full steam ahead, with various sources reporting that Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Conan the Barbarian) is in talks with Warner Bros. about taking on a role in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.
At present, there's no word on which role Momoa is up for, although speculation from The Hollywood Reporter has identified both Doomsday and Martian Manhunter as possibilities, even though we have no confirmation about either of the characters featuring in David S. Goyer's script.
Batman vs. Superman is set for release on July 17th 2015, with Zack Snyder directing a cast that also includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Clark Kent / Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White). »

The line-up of films premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival has been released, and there are a lot of good movies, one of which includes The Raid 2, which I am incredibly excited to see! It's easily my most anticipated film at the festival.
The Sundance Film Festival takes place from January 16th to the 26th in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance, Utah. From the press release:
John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival, said, “The Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival feature new work from many established independent filmmakers who began their careers at our Festival years ago, which allows us to reflect on the impact, legacy and growth of the independent film movement over the past 30 years.”
Trevor Groth, Director of Programming for the Sundance Film Festival, said, “In many of the films selected for our 2014 Sundance Film Festival, we see fascinating characters and subjects throughout. »

Since leaving the epic HBO ensemble series Game Of Thrones, hulking actor Jason Momoa has found himself a little unlucky. After landing the lead title character in Conan The Barbarian, the disappointing result both commercially and critically suggested he may not be a leading man. He’s followed that up with a villain role in Walter Hill and Sylvester Stallone’s dud Bullet To The Head and will next be seen in David Hayter’s action/horror hybrid Wolves. It’s also worth pointing out he narrowly lost out on a role of Drax The Destroyer in James Gunn’s upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy.
Well, what could be Marvel’s loss may well turn out to be DC and Warner Bros. gain, as the Hawaiian actor is said to be in final negotiations for an unknown role in Zack Snyder’s still-untitled Batman Vs. Superman project. His beefy presence »

Momoa, whose highest profile roles thus far have seen him headline the Conan remake, and also appear in Game Of Thrones, is apparently set to play either Doomsday or the Martian Manhunter in the movie. The exact role remains guarded, but those are the two possibles that are being widely mooted.

Jason Momoa is in negotiations for an unknown role in the highly-anticipated Batman Vs. Superman. If a deal is made, he will join Henry Cavill (Superman/Clark Kent), Ben Affleck (Batman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman).
It is rumored that the actor might be playing the villain Doomsday or Martin Manhunter, although that has not been confirmed. In the DC Comics, Doomsday was the result of Kryptonian genetic engineering gone wrong, with superhuman strength, speed and leaping abilities. His skin is covered with bony spikes that can pierce through Kryptonian skin, and he also has the power of regeneration, causing him to come back to life if he is ever killed. Martian Manhunter is an alien with powers such as telepathy, shape-shifting, X-ray vision, along with super strength, speed and endurance. The actor's muscular 6'4" frame makes him »

Over the weekend Amy Adams attended the premiere of David O. Russell's American Hustle, but - following last week's big announcement that Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious) has secured the role of Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman - much of the topic of conversation during the press interviews surrounded Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel sequel and her thoughts on the addition of another strong female character to the fledgling DC Cinematic Universe.
"Oh did they? I don't even know so clearly I'm not the person to talk to," said Adams when asked by Collider how long she had known about the casting. "That's awesome, I hope I get a scene with her. I love working with the gals. I think we start [filming] in February, it's sort of the plan. I'm excited, I think it's gonna be awesome!" I think it's gonna be good times."

The Sundance Film Festival made their final feature film line-ups with the Premieres category announcements. Sixteen films with huge name talent, returnee filmmakers and plenty of buyer interest/and future all night wheeling, and dealing.
After breaking out in Park City with The Guard, John Michael McDonagh returns (alongside actor Brendan Gleeson) the much anticipated Calvary. Mike Cahill (alongside actress Brit Marling) returns with more sci-fi terrain with, I Origins. Jake Paltrow who managed to sink instead of swim with The Good Night, was again surfaces with Young Ones. And this was unexpected, but Jordan Vogt-Roberts makes it back to back years with Toy’s House (The Kings of Summer) re-teams with Nick Offerman for Nick Offerman: American Ham (which is more concert-comedy film than narrative feature).

An unusually strong international flavor pervades the Sundance Film Festival’s Premieres slate, with new pictures from British helmer Michael Winterbottom, Irish directors Lenny Abrahamson and John Michael McDonagh, Dutch filmmaker Anton Corbijn, Welsh-born action maven Gareth Evans and Iranian-born French auteur Marjane Satrapi figuring prominently among the 17 world-premiere titles unveiled today alongside the Documentary Premieres section.

For director of programming Trevor Groth, the flowering of international auteur talent in Premieres is the result of a considered effort that began shortly after he and fest director John Cooper launched their first edition in 2010. While their immediate focus was on beefing up the dramatic competition as a showcase for new filmmakers, broader international outreach across all sections of the festival became a similar priority.
“I think we’ve really built the dramatic competition up in a way that it’s firing at the level we always hoped it would, »

The Sundance Film Festival announced the titles selected to screen in its out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections. Last year, the movies that were launched in these categories — which typically highlight filmmakers who’ve appeared at Sundance before — included Before Midnight, Don Jon, and The Way Way Back; this year appears to be just as promising. In Lynn Shelton’s Laggies, a young woman stuck in arrested-development (Keira Knightley) has her life upended by an unexpected marriage proposal. In David Wain’s They Came Together — surely, a naughty pun, yes? — Wet Hot American Summer alums Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd »

"I hope that I can be involved with a woman on screen where we're not in a love triangle," she told Coming Soon. "That would be fun. Maybe where we team up together and we work as teammates instead of adversaries."
The Man of Steel sequel, due out in cinemas in summer 2015, will see Henry Cavill's Superman face off against Ben Affleck's Batman and Wonder Woman, with The Flash also rumoured to be making an appearance.
Following the news from last week that Gal Gadot is playing Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman, actress Amy Adams, who plays Lois Lane, revealed that she didn't know Wonder Woman had been cast, while saying that she hopes she has scenes with the actress.
"Oh did they? I don't even know so clearly I'm not the person to talk to. That's awesome, I hope I get a scene with her. I love working with the gals. I think we start [filming] in February, it's sort of the plan. I'm excited, I think it's gonna be awesome!" I think it's gonna be good times."
In a separate interview, the actress confessed that she hopes Lois Lane will become "teammates" with Wonder Woman, instead of getting involved in a love triangle.
"Am I interested? I don't know. I mean, we'll see. I hope that I can be involved with a woman on »
The Sundance Institute has released the movie line-up for their Spotlight, Midnight and Sundance Kids selections for The Sundance Film Festival 2014. The Midnight selection has always been my favorite because its always packed with really crazy, fun, and messed up films. It looks like another great collection of films this next year! They include films such as Cooties with Elijah Wood, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead and more. Sundance Kids is a new addition this year which, if you couldn't tell, is meant for younger audiences.
The Festival takes place January 16-26 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance, Utah, and we will be there to cover as many of the films as humanly possible. Director of Programming, Trevor Groth, had this to say in a statement.
“The films in the sections announced today round out our 2014 Sundance Film Festival program and further reflect the depth and »

After Amy Adams concurred that she loved Man of Steel and she's excited for the sequel to be moving forward, Collider asked how early did she know Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder had cast Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. "Oh did they? I don't even know so clearly I'm not the person to talk to," she confessed, admitting she's just now finding out. "That's awesome, I hope I get a scene with her. I love working with the gals. I think we start [filming] in February, it's sort of the plan. I'm excited, I think it's gonna be awesome!" I think it's gonna be good times." Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne, the tentatively titled Batman Vs. Superman flick is scheduled for release on July 17, 2015! »
Nearly 20 years after “The Lion King” made a luminous Disney playground of the African wild, it’s high time the continent responded with an animated vision of its own. Enter perky South African effort “Khumba,” which remedies the romanticization to some extent with its textured savanna landscapes and stony skies, but doesn’t take the regional authenticity much further than that. With a brashly Hollywood-flavored voice cast and a self-borrowing scripting assist from “Lion King” writer Jonathan Roberts, this tale of a half-striped zebra finding his place in the animal kingdom aims squarely for international crossover appeal — rather at the expense of its own message, which trumpets the virtues of individuality. Still, for armchair-traveling youngsters, that should hardly diminish the appeal (or the ancillary lifespan) of this technically sophisticated toon.
From its buddy-assisted quest narrative to its British-accented feline villain, the parallels to Disney’s 1994 blockbuster come thick and fast »

Speaking to promote the Man of Steel home entertainment release, the British actor said that he would like to see director Zack Snyder follow through on the Easter Egg planted in the Superman reboot through Richard Schiff's character Emil Hamilton.
Cyborg was created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez and first appeared in a 1980 issue of DC Comics Presents. He possesses superhuman strength and the ability to fly thanks to advanced robotic grafts received after being mutilated by an inter-dimensional beast.
"What really intrigued me is [the] reference to Star Labs [in Man of Steel]," Cavill said. "Cyborg would make a wonderful character and an incredible bridge between superhumans and humanity in a different way to Batman.
"I don't know where he's going to come in, or if he's going to come in »
In order to make sure The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer had as little impact as possible, Variety dropped a huge news story yesterday that Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot will be playing Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman. How big of a role will she play? Will this lead to a solo movie? Will she be able to pull the character off? The Flickering Myth writing team give their thoughts...
Anthony Donovan Stokes: If they were going for the most unremarkable choice possible this was a major success.
Luke Owen: This is exactly what Anghus was writing about in his Amazing Spider-Man 2 article. It's simply fan service to compete with Avengers to add a non-developed Wonder Woman into a movie that already features Batman and Superman. »
