9 August 2017 3:36 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Foresight Unlimited handles international sales on action-thriller set to begin filming in France end of this year.

Foresight Unlimited has announced that Phillip Noyce, director of Salt and The Bone Collector, will direct the Second World War action-thriller The Devil’s Brigade.

The Devil's Brigade centres on the true story of Davie Berman, the only Jewish member of the Luciano mob, who is requested by the Us military to help turn the tide of events against the Germans in Italy.

In organising a team of Sicilian Cosa Nostra to work with the Americans, he almost single-handedly drives the Germans out of the southern region of Italy, and returns to America as a decorated hero. Moshe Diamant will produce.

Australian-born Noyce is known for his work in action-dramas like Salt starring Angelina Jolie, Clear And Present Danger and Patriot Games. He also directed Rabbit-Proof Fence and The Quiet American.

Until The End Of The World director Wim Wenders with Paul Auster and Sam Shepard at Balthazar in 2005: "Actually, he [Sam] is the guy I offered the film first." Photo: Tom Farrell

In the second instalment of my conversation with Wim Wenders on the 25th anniversary of his masterwork from 1991, he discussed the influence that Sam Shepard had on Until The End Of The World (Bis Ans Ende Der Welt) and how it was his "dream come true" that Jeanne Moreau "accepted to travel all the way to Australia with us and spend months and months in the Outback."

Wim spoke about the relationship between Max von Sydow and William Hurt, the contributions from Peter Carey and Michael Almereyda on the script, the scenes of Tom Farrell (Paris, Texas, and Lightning Over Water), and that in the end the film is Solveig Dommartin's and his story.

Jurassic Park: 10 things you might have missed

1 August 2017 5:01 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paul Bullock Aug 3, 2017

You may have seen Jurassic Park a dozen times, but there loads of details that are easy to miss. Details like these...

Last week, visual effects artist Todd Vaziri took to Twitter to shatter the illusions of Jurassic Park fans everywhere. "When people watch this 24-year old mega-blockbuster," he tweeted, "they point and laugh at the totally obvious disappearing raptor on each viewing, ya?"

See related  James Bond 007: revisiting Never Say Never Again

What, Todd? The what!?

Alongside this tweet, Vaziri also posted a slowed down Gif of the moment in question and - yep - there it is. During the final set piece, in which the T-Rex (somehow silently) stomps into the Visitor's Centre and gobbles up the Velociraptors, one of the Raptors disappears. Not eaten by the Rex, just gone. One frame, she's there, the next she's not, the following one she's there again. »

The family of the Sarah Jones, a camera assistant killed while working on the Gregg Allman biopic “Midnight Rider,” was awarded $11.2 million Monday in a civil suit over her death.

Avengers: Infinity War Shoots In NYC Next Week

9 July 2017 2:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While most of the production on Avengers: Infinity War has taken place in Atlanta, where a majority of the Marvel movies are filmed, we reported in March that Infinity War production would shift to New York in May. With production now winding down, it seems the superhero sequel will be heading back to the Big Apple for another shoot starting tomorrow. While no details about this shoot have been revealed yet, it's possible that this could be one of the final scenes before production wraps.

XMelDNY Twitter revealed signs posted near the Queens hotel Penthouse @ Ravel, for a film shoot entitled "Mary Sue" which is the production code name for Avengers: Infinity War. It isn't clear what stars may or may not be present for this shoot, but since it is in New York, it's possible that heroes based in the Big Apple such as Spider-Man (Tom Holland) or Doctor Strange »

Did Jennifer Connelly Secretly Join Spider-Man: Homecoming?

23 June 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With exactly two weeks left until Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters, it seems that a new mystery cast member has been unveiled. The IMDb page for Spider-Man: Homecoming has added Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Connelly to the cast, with the actress portraying "Karen/Suit Lady." This casting has yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios or Sony Pictures, but this certainly wouldn't be the first time that news of a surprise casting addition happens just before a Marvel movie is released.

When Marvel announced the red carpet premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the studio made a list of cast members that have been confirmed to attend, as part of the tip sheet sent to members of the press covering the event. That tip sheet included two cast members who had not been previously announced, Julie Delpy as Madame B, who trained a young Natasha Romanoff to become the Black Widow, and Linda Cardellini as Laura Barton, the wife of Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). When production began last year on Captain America: Civil War, fans were surprised to find William Hurt as part of the cast, reprising his role from 2008's The Incredible Hulk as Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross. It remains to be seen if Marvel plans on confirming this casting as we get closer and closer to the July 7 release date of this Spider-Man movie.

Aside from the IMDb listing, no further details about this character have been given, but if it is true, this won't be her first time starring in a Marvel movie. Five years before the Marvel Cinematic Universe started with Iron Man, Universal Pictures released Hulk, which starred Eric Bana as Bruce Banner and Jennifer Connelly as Betty Ross. When Marvel Studios released The Incredible Hulk in 2008, just months after Iron Man, Liv Tyler portrayed Betty Ross alongside Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, who was replaced by Mark Ruffalo in 2012's The Avengers. The actress is also married to Paul Bettany, who plays the iconic character Vision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It's worth noting that anyone can edit a film's IMDb page, so it's possible that this could have been added by someone who was given some inaccurate information. On the other hand, the movie has already started screening for members of the press, so it's also possible that someone could have seen the movie and then added Jennifer Connelly's character into the movie's IMDb page. Regardless, fans will find out in exactly 14 days whether or not Jennifer Connelly is part of this highly-anticipated Spider-Man movie. There has already been one Spider-Man: Homecoming early reaction, which claims its the best Spider-Man movie ever.

If Jennifer Connelly is part of Spider-Man: Homecoming, she joins a diverse cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Zendaya as Michelle, who has been rumored to be the daughter of Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton), a.k.a. The Vulture, but that report was shot down. The cast also includes Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, Michael Cherus as The Tinkerer, Kenneth Choi as Principal Morita and Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds. Jon Watts, who made his directorial debut with the indie hit Cop Car, directs from a script by John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein, Jon Watts, Chris McKenna, Christopher Ford and Erik Sommers. Hopefully we'll find out more about Spider-Man: Homecoming as we get closer to the July 7 release date. »

Infinity War Selfie Reunites the Science Bros.

22 June 2017 5:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mark Ruffalo celebrated National Selfie Day by bringing the Science Bros together once again on the set of Avengers: Infinity War. Unlike the lunchtime photo where Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo were flanked by Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong, this image features these scientific heroes sharing a moment together between takes on the Infinity War set. Given the massive size and scope of Avengers: Infinity War, it remains unclear how many actual Science Bro moments fans will get,

This photo from Mark Ruffalo's Instagram doesn't show either of the actor's costumes, but we can see a large blue screen behind them. Naturally, this blue screen could be used for anything, and Mark Ruffalo didn't offer any more details about what's going on behind the Science Bros in this photo. It's been more than two years since we last saw Mark Ruffalo's not-so-jolly Green Giant on the big screen, when he stole a QuinJet and took off for parts unknown at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thankfully, we'll get to see Hulk on the big screen later this year in Thor: Ragnarok.

While many fans have been clamoring for a Planet Hulk adaptation, Thor: Ragnarok may be the closest that we'll get to that story being told on the big screen. We know that Thor will be exiled from Asgard and taken to a gladiator planet, where the reigning champion is in fact the Hulk. Mark Ruffalo teased in an interview last January that the Hulk story arc will connect both Thor: Rangarok and Infinity War, although what that connection may be is uncertain. Thor: Ragnarok is said to center on an "intergalactic road trip" with Thor and Hulk, who have never been the best of friends throughout their Avengers tenure.

There have also been rumors that Avengers: Infinity War may have a connection to the 2008 Phase 3 movie The Incredible Hulk, with actress Liv Tyler reportedly reprising her role as Betty Ross for this movie. Still, since Marvel hasn't confirmed any cast members or character for Avengers: Infinity War yet, all we have are rumors to go on. Marvel did bring back Betty Ross' father, General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross (William Hurt) back into the fold in last year's Captain America: Civil War, so it's certainly possible that his daughter may also return. If they both do come back, they'll be part of an ensemble that the Russo brothers revealed had as many as 67 characters.

We also showed you another photo earlier today featuring the Doctor Strange Sanctum Sanctorum, featuring the Russo Brothers and Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson. While no details were given with that photo, the more we see from this epic adventure, the more fans will start to piece together, but as of now, there is very little to go on, with no official synopsis and no full cast list, although we have seen several stars on the set through recent set photos. Marvel hasn't confirmed when production will wrap on Avengers: Infinity War, but that may happen soon, since filming has been under way for nearly six months. Take a look at this Science Bros photo from Avengers: Infinity War below. »

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Emmy Contenders 2017: Supporting Actor in a Drama

6 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a testament to “Better Call Saul” that the category might be dominated by its supporting players. While Jonathan Banks has scored nominations two years in a row, Giancarlo Esposito is added to the mix this year for reprising the character of Gus Fring, last seen on “Breaking Bad.” That performance earned him an Emmy nod and there’s no reason to think bringing the character to the spin-off won’t bode well. Michael McKean has shockingly never been nominated for an Emmy, and this year he delivered a phenomenal performance in the episode “Off Brand” when his character took the witness stand. “Westworld” also has a powerhouse trio in Ed Harris, James Marsden and Jeffrey Wright, all of whom could find themselves in the line-up. Also boasting dual possibilities is “The Crown,” which saw five-time Emmy winner John Lithgow channel Winston Churchill and Jared Harris as King George VI. They »

We’re all saddened by the recent passing of Gregg Allman of the famed Allman Brothers band. Their southern rock style always seemed to make us feel alright   The influence they had on music that would come after them is immeasurable and their live stories were full of drama, intrigue, you name it.  A featured film biopic about the Allman Brothers was in the works in 2014 but sadly never happened. William Hurt was cast in the role of Gregg with Tyson Ritter and the younger brother with Wyatt Russell in the role of Duane in Randall Miller’s “Midnight Rider.”
