Woody Harrelson & Laura Dern are in talks for a Daniel Clowes comic book film

2 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern are in talks for an adaptation of Daniel Clowes's graphic novel Wilson.

The True Detective and Fault in Our Stars actors are in negotiations for the film from Skeleton Twins director Craig Johnson, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Harrelson will take on the title role of the middle-aged misanthrope, who tries to connect with his troubled ex-wife (Dern) and estranged daughter, after the death of his father.

The story centres around his painful attempts to reform their family unit.

We say 'The Fault in Our Stars', but of course you all know Dern best from Jurassic Park. Harrelson will be seen in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, Triple 9 and By Way of Helena.

Clowes, who worked on the other previous films based on his work - Ghost World and Art School Confidential - wrote the script for Wilson. »

Woody Harrelson And Laura Dern To Meet Wilson

27 May 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Nine years on from the last comic-to-screen adaptation of Daniel Clowes' work, things are finally coming together for Wilson. Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern are in talks to star in the film, which Clowes himself has scripted and Craig Johnson will direct. Sam Raimi is among the producers.The 2010 graphic novel revolves around the titular misanthrope: an opinionated loner who loves his dog but finds people harder to get along with. He tries though, often haranguing total strangers on a variety of subjects. But when his father dies, leaving him completely starved of human relationships, he sets out to find his junkie ex-wife, learns he has a teenage daughter he never knew about, and tries for a last haphazard stab at family life. Harrelson will play Wilson, with Dern his ex-wife. Clowes' previous excursions into film were Ghost World and Art School Confidential, both of which had Terry Zwigoff calling the shots. »

Five reasons why we love Bill Murray

27 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

With Aloha in theatres this weekend, we thought we would take a look at our favourite things about the man, the myth, the legend: the one and only Bill Murray.

Though an enigma off-screen, Murray has long-established his position as one of the funniest and most consistent comedic actors in film history with an output of modern classics like Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Rushmore, and Lost In Translation.

According to Emma Stone in Zombieland, Bill "has a direct line to my funny bone." We agree with you, Emma – though we probably wouldn’t go so far as punching a child for not knowing who Bill Murray is, Woody Harrelson.

So, yes -- with the exception of some the participants of his infamous "Saturday Night Live" era feuds -- everybody loves Bill Murray. But why exactly is Bill so universally loved?

San Andreas Review

27 May 2015 4:07 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Brad Peyton.

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, Paul Giamatti, Kylie Minogue

Certificate: 12A

Running Time: 114 minutes

Synopsis: After a devastating earthquake hits California, a Los Angeles Fire Department rescue-helicopter pilot (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) and his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) attempt to leave Los Angeles and head to San Francisco to find and rescue their daughter (Alexandra Daddario).

San Andreas joins a long list of disaster movies that have been hurtled our way over the past few years; from the heights of Irwin Allen’s epics of the 1960s and 1970s (see The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, The Poseidon Adventure), to the more recent CGI affairs, most of which were thrown at the screen by German director Roland Emmerich (2012, The Day After Tomorrow). While most of those movies relied on high-octane effects and a multitude of characters led by one or two big name stars, »

Now You See Me 3 is a go

25 May 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While the sequel to the 2013's Now You See Me won't be hitting big screens until Summer 2016, a third movie is already on the cards. The sequel, called Now You See Me 2: The Second Act, will see Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco team up again (Isla Fisher won't be back) as The Four Horsemen, who are master illusionists and thieves all rolled into one. Jay Chou, Lizzy Caplan and Daniel Radcliffe are also on board for the sequel and presumably much of the cast will return for a third outing. Lionsgate boss Jon Feltheimer was talking up the company's earning profile with a bunch of analysts and announced the third outing. We have to be honest, we didn't see that one coming, but the original was throughly enjoyable and as long as they don't tinker with the successful formula too much, then bring it on! »

Now You See Me 3 already in the works

24 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Now You See Me 2 isn't due until next year - but plans are afoot for Now You See Me 3...

Lionsgate has high hopes for its 2016 sequel, Now You See Me 2, which it hopes will build on the $350m gross for 2013's surprise hit. The sequel has added Daniel Radcliffe to its cast (which also includes returnees Jesse Eisenberg, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco), although Isla Fisher's pregnancy means she's missing from episode two.

But there's a sporting chance her Now You See Me days are not over. Lionsgate boss Jon Feltheimer has revealed that the firm is already in the early planning stages for Now You See Me 3, and Fisher may well thus return in that way.

The second film, Now You See Me: The Second Act, is currently due for release in June 2016, with Jon M Chu taking over directing duties from Louis Leterrier. »

Now You See Me 3 In The Works

24 May 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The surprise success of the first stage-magicians-pulling-a-heist thriller Now You See Me naturally led to the greenlight for a second film, which is a year away from release. But Lionsgate is apparently already so confident in the sequel that it has announced that a third film is in development. Speaking in the context of a less-than-sexy call with analysts to talk up the company’s earning profile, Lionsgate boss Jon Feltheimer announced that he and his team were already planning a third outing, which will surely end up being called Now You See Three, unless they don’t like laughter or fun.The original, which saw Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco as performers The Four Horsemen recruited for a series of daring robberies with an ulterior motive, took in less than $30 million on its opening weekend, but eventually made more than $351 million worldwide.

22 May 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Show Must Go On As Lionsgate Greenlights Third Installment Of Now You See Me

22 May 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From humble sleeper hit to bona fide series, the story behind Lionsgate’s Now You See Me franchise has been one riddled with success, and even though The Second Act isn’t set to slink into theaters until 2016, the studio has went one step further to greenlight a third installment in the crime caper franchise.

Speaking at an earnings call earlier today, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer confirmed that the studio has entered the “early planning” stage in relation to the threequel, and a Now You See Me 3 dovetails with the company’s plan to double down on bankable franchises. Back in 2013, the original movie pulled in an impressive $350 million at the worldwide box office off the back of a $75 million budget, and Lionsgate will be hoping to increase this profit margin moving forward.

In fact, it’s a trend seen across the studio’s roster of IP, what with the »

Watch: First Trailer For 'The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials' Brings The Heat

19 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Underestimated by many including us, and kept going by firm fanbase, "The Maze Runner" is a Ya franchise survivor in a sea of also rans. And it's a feat made more remarkable given there are really no big names in the cast — certainly none on the level of Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, and Philip Seymour Hoffman (to name a few) in "The Hunger Games" series or Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer and more in the "Divergent" flicks. But yet, "The Maze Runner" pulled in a healthy $340 million worldwide last fall on a budget of $34 million. It's easy math, the numbers are good, and so comes "The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials."  “The first movie was the mystery of ‘Where are we and what is this place? And can we get out?’ But the second movie is about the repercussions of getting out and the discovery of »
