18 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Goldie Hawn hasn't acted since 2002, but she'll be forever beloved in Hollywood thanks to her starring roles in hit films like The Sugarland Express, Private Benjamin, Overboard and The First Wives Club. Kate Hudson is a successful actress in her own right—but would she ever remake one of her mom's movies? "I come from a family of storytellers. It takes a lot—three months, four months—out of their life," Hudson said on NBC's Late Night Tuesday after she was asked about growing up with Hawn and dad Kurt Russell. "It's kind of a fun thing to see the outcome of what your parents have been working on so hard and what you would hear them talking about. And now I can see that in my »

‘Doberman’ #1- A Funny, Self-Aware Comic

17 July 2014 6:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Doberman #1

Written by Scott Marder, Bob Rosell, and Jack Lambert

Art by Brandon McKinney

Published by Idw

Doberman  is a pretty funny book to read if you remember that it’s a spoof/homage of all of those cop action films from the ‘80s, especially Lethal Weapon. Written by several of the writers for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the book will feel strange if you don’t remember that it’s intended to be a loving parody. Once you remember that, it feels amusing to read.

Doberman is the epic tale of Frank Doberano, an Lapd officer. He’s the picture of every stereotyped office that doesn’t play by the rules and has panache, right down to his grizzled Kurt Russell looks. His nickname is the Doberman, and we can see his style on display when he foils a convenience store robbery by spitting beer in the faces of the robbers. »

'The Purge: Anarchy' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About the Savage Sequel

17 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last summer "The Purge" unassumingly broke and entered into theaters nationwide. A proudly B-movie affair, produced lovingly by "Paranormal Activity" kingpin Jason Blum, it starred Ethan Hawke and "Game of Thrones" star Lena Headley as a pair of well-off homeowners whose lives descend into chaos during the annual Purge -- a nationwide event where, for 12 hours, any form of crime is legal (and emergency medical services and police are suspended). Things, typically, go awry.

But while "The Purge" entered theaters with a whimper, it certainly left with a bang, making an unexpectedly healthy return on its modest budget and serving as the foundation of a probably franchise that, with any luck, will rival "Paranormal Activity" in terms of the numbers of installments and complexity of its respective mythology. The first follow-up film, "The Purge: Anarchy," arrives this week and takes an entirely different approach to the annual day of super violent cleansing. »

Kurt Russell: Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' may shoot early next year

16 July 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Kurt Russell just made a lot of Quentin Tarantino fans happy. The "Death Proof" star recently appeared on Fox 29 in Philadelphia, where he revealed, “I’ve got a Tarantino project called "'The Hateful Eight' that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year.” Russell took part in a live reading of the script after it leaked online. For a while, Tarantino was going to scrap the project as a film, but in May word got out that it could begin shooting as early as November. Russell stars alongside Samuel L. Jackson in the Wild West film as rival bounty hunters who get stuck in a saloon as a blizzard rolls in. They will be joined by Walton Goggins’ Awol Confederate soldier, Amber Tamblyn’s convicted criminal, and characters played by Bruce Dern and Michael Madsen. (via »

Kurt Russell films his final Fast & Furious scenes with Paul Walker's brothers

16 July 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Kurt Russell confirms he has completed his final two scenes in the latest Fast & Furious scenes without the late Paul Walker.

Russell had a day left of shooting when Walker died in a car crash in November outside of Los Angeles.

In an interview this week, the 63-year-old actor said he returned to work on the two scenes left to do with Walker about two months ago. He said he filmed the scenes with Walker's two brothers Caleb and Cody.

The Fast team was "trying to work the best magic they can to make Fast & Furious 7 complete," Russell said, but did not say whether his scenes had been rewritten.

Russell signed on to the seventh film in the franchise to play the father of Vin Diesel's character Dominic Toretto. Acknowledging that Walker's death left the filmmakers in a "tough spot," Russell said the brothers had a great relationship with »

2014's most influential director: John Carpenter?

16 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

John Carpenter was once among Hollywood’s most prolific filmmakers. But the man who brought us such genre classics as Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 has only made one movie in the past 13 years—2010’s psychological thriller The Ward—and hasn’t troubled the box office in a big way since 1998’s James Woods-starring Vampires. (And Carpenter, 66, doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to get back behind the camera: “I worked really hard for more years than I’d like to count, but now I can pick and choose things, »

Tarantino's The Hateful Eight to Start Shooting Early 2015

15 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Quentin Tarantino has calmed down a little since his Hateful Eight script leaked online earlier this year. At one point the filmmaker said that he was going to just shelve the project, but since then he did a live stage reading, and now the filmmaker is getting ready to put it into production. The news came in an interview with My Fox Philly, when actor Kurt Russell said:

"There's a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year."

Regardless of all the drama that has surrounded this script, it's awesome to hear that there are once again plans to bring this story to life. I'm a huge fan of westerns, and this sounds like it will be awesome. 

The story follows the "steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps »

Kurt Russell says he's filming Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' next year

15 July 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

2014 will go down in history as the year Quentin Tarantino almost made The Hateful Eight.

The filmmaker was bullish about filming another western after his Oscar winning hit Django Unchained—but after a script leak and an ensuing lawsuit against Gawker, Tarantino seemed to cool on the idea. But at a live read of the Hateful Eight script, he announced that he was in the process of redrafting the screenplay–presumably adding in a character named Dick “The Gawker” Nenton, who suffers various horrific-but-hilarious limb-removal procedures.

Now it looks like 2015 will go down in history as the year Quentin Tarantino actually made The Hateful Eight. »

Kurt Russell Says Tarantino’s ‘Hateful Eight’ May Begin Filming By Early 2015

15 July 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

What’s next for filmmaker Quentin Tarantino? Well, at first the Oscar-winner seemed as though he was perhaps most interested in making a third ‘historical revenge-fantasy’ movie in the vein of Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained – one titled Killer Crow and set during WWII; several months later, however, Tarantino revealed that he’d begun developing a script for a different sort of western throwback than Django. The screenplay in question is now known to be titled Hateful Eight, and it looks as though Tarantino will begin production on the project in time to make a 2015 release date.

Those who’ve been following Hateful Eight‘s progress thus far have endured something of a roller coaster ride – one that started when Tarantino abandoned his ...

15 July 2014 4:47 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) was planning to make "The Hateful Eight" western film be his next project, but when he started pitching it to actors, one of those actors ended up leaking the script online. The helmer responded by immediately dropping the movie and go on a mission to not only find out who leaked the script, but also sue anyone involved with spreading it online. Then came news that Tarantino was planning to rewrite the script and once again attempt to make the movie. He even had a live read of the script's first draft earlier this year. One of the actor who took part in that live read was Kurt Russell, who just confirmed that Tarantino is definitely turning "The Hateful Eight" into a film and that he'll have a starring role in it.

Jimmy Fallon Plays Catchphrase with Michael Strahan & Diane Kruger, Ben Falcone Talks Goth Melissa McCarthy in the Late Night Roundup (Video)

15 July 2014 1:14 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Didn't stay up for Monday night's late night talk shows? Moviefone's got you covered. Here's some of what you might have missed:

Jimmy Fallon and announcer Steve Higgins played Catchphrase with "Tonight Show" guests Michael Strahan and Diane Kruger, and the latter star admitted up front that she might not be good at the game because she's not American. But the German-born actress was determined to keep her country's winning streak alive following Germany's triumph at the World Cup, and brought a steely reserve to the match. Unfortunately, the combo of teammates Fallon and Strahan could not be stopped, and the duo came out on top thanks to a last-minute solve by Strahan for the clue "Silent but deadly." "I don't fart, man!" Strahan protested, before coming up with the correct phrase.

Strahan also sat down with Fallon to chat about his co-hosting gig with Kelly Ripa on "Live! with Kelly and Michael, »

The Hateful Eight seems certain to go ahead now, with Kurt Russell revealing he's on board, and shooting is set for early 2015.


It seems all but certain now that Quentin Tarantino is to make his once-aborted western The Hateful Eight his next film.

He's also held a live reading of the script, with the help of acting talent such as Samuel L Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell and Amber Tamblyn.

And now it looks like he's going to film it after all.

Kurt Russell Claims Quentin Tarantino Is Shooting 'The Hateful Eight' Early Next Year

14 July 2014 6:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During a recent interview with MyFoxPhilly, Kurt Russell revealed that production is scheduled to begin in early 2015 on Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.

"I've got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year."

Back in April, we reported that Quentin Tarantino is working on a new draft of the script with a different ending, and that production may start in the winter. However, another report from May revealed that shooting is reportedly set to begin this November in Wyoming.

Of course, the movie almost never happened at all, after the first draft of his script leaked back in January, which prompted the filmmaker to file a lawsuit against Gawker Media shortly thereafter. Quentin Tarantino revealed after the leak that he was shelving the production, but the filmmaker had a change of heart, instead hosting a live reading of the script. »

Tarantino's, Scorsese's Next Circle 2015 Dates

14 July 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Out doing promotion for the Netflix film "The Battered Bastards of Baseball," actor Kurt Russell suggested that Quentin Tarantino's scrapped-then-revived western "The Hateful Eight" could start filming early next year.

Russell was one of the actors involved in the live-read of the script’s first draft earlier this year, and quite a few of those at said script read are expected to show up in the film itself.

Speaking with Fox 59, Russell was asked what was next for him. He says: "I’ve got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year." He also says the horror western "Bone Tomahawk" could film before that starting in October.

Speaking of another auteur famous for screen violence, Paramount Pictures is said to be in talks to acquire Martin Scorsese's long-gestating adaptation of the Shusaku Endo novel "Silence".

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight Still On; Only Slightly Delayed

14 July 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The last we heard about Quentin Tarantino’s highly anticipated Western The Hateful Eight was that it would be shooting in November.  This was a welcome turn of events in a development saga that had turned somewhat sordid.  First, an early draft of the script leaked causing Tarantino to can the film and instead stage a live read.  So getting a new Qt movie at all was a blessing.  Now comes the delay.  But the good news is that it’s apparently a minor one. Kurt Russell is claiming that the film will actually be shooting next year.  Which, by the way, appears to lend some credibility to the idea that the cast of the live read of Hateful Eight would be returning for the film version.  That cast included Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Zoe Bell and Tim Roth. »
