18 July 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Late Saturday night, James Franco was presented the inaugural James Schamus Ally Award at Outfest, the Los Angeles Lgbtq film festival. The award was presented by Gus Van Sant ahead of the centerpiece screening of Justin Kelly’s new film “King Cobra,” in which Franco stars. James Schamus was the first straight ally to receive Outfest’s biggest award, the Achievement Award, back in 2014 and the festival created this new award in his name to, per a release, “honor the efforts of an individual in bringing Lgbtq stories to the forefront.”

‘The Predator’: CAA Campaigning for James Franco to Star in Shane Black’s “Inventive Sequel” — Report

17 July 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Shane Black has gone out of his way to insist that his upcoming “The Predator” is less of a typical remake and more of an “inventive sequel.” What exactly he means by that distinction is but one of many unanswered questions about the anticipated project. Also on fan’s minds is who will be playing Quinn Mackenna, the new hero taking over for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Dutch from John McTiernan’s 1987 original. (Spoiler: It probably won’t be Schwarzenegger.) The latest word is that James Franco is “very high on the list” to lead the new film.

Rumour: James Franco wanted for Shane Black’s The Predator

17 July 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Shane Black’s The Predator deep in pre-production ahead of its February 2018 release, Jeff Sneider is reporting on Meet the Movie Press that James Franco is being lined up for the lead role in the franchise revival.

Franco is the first name to be rumoured for the cast of The Predator, although Arnold Schwarzenegger has suggested on several occasions that he’s set to meet with his Predator co-star Black about a potential return as Dutch, while 50 Cent also claimed back in April that he’d joined the film. This should be treated as a rumour at present, although Sneider does have a solid track record when it comes to casting scoops.

Originally thought to be a reboot of the franchise, Black has since confirmed that The Predator will be a sequel, set some 30 years after the original movie. »

16 July 2016 3:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One sort-of-sequel, sort-of-reboot in development is the Shane Black-directed new entry in the "Predator" sci-fi franchise.

Speaking on an episode of Meet The Movie Press this week, Jeff Sneider revealed a major casting rumor regarding the film - that James Franco is rumored to be in line for the lead role in the film.

The new movie is currently slated to open February 2018 which means production will likely kick off towards in a few months. So far no other actors have yet been linked beyond rumblings of Arnold Schwarzenegger potentially reprising his role from the 1987 original.

Black and his old "Monster Squad" cohort Fred Dekker are penning the script for the feature which is anticipated to have a larger budget than previous films in the series. »

James Franco Heads Up Rumored Shortlist For Shane Black’s Predator

15 July 2016 2:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A couple of months back we learned the name of the hero lined up by Shane Black to lead his sequel, The Predator. In case you missed it, it’s the very rugged-sounding Quinn McKenna. Today we might have stumbled upon who will breathe life into that action hero monicker. No, sorry, it’s not The Rock. It’s – rather surprisingly – James Franco.

The news hails from the Meet The Movie Press podcast, which this week featured former Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider. Apparently Franco is at the top of a shortlist for the role of McKenna. He dropped the scoop toward the end of the broadcast, adding that we should take everything with a truckload of salt, as at this stage it’s only a rumor.

Granted, it might indeed just be chatter at this point, hence the warning of massive amounts of salt. However, as the film recently moved »

Predator 4 Eyeing James Franco as the Lead?

15 July 2016 2:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a few years of development under director writer-director Shane Black, 20th Century Fox's The Predator is finally getting ready to move forward. We reported last month that production is scheduled to begin this September, wrapping up in December, but no cast members have been confirmed quite yet. There have been rumors that original Predator star Arnold Schwarzenegger will return to play Dutch, while other reports claim that rapper/actor 50 Cent has also come aboard. Today we have yet another rumor, which claims that one of Hollywood's biggest talent agencies, Creative Artists Agency (CAA) is pushing James Franco to star in Predator.

The news comes from the YouTube series Meet the Movie Press, where The Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider teased that CAA is pushing for James Franco. Of course, nothing has been confirmed at this time, and it isn't known if Shane Black would be interested in casting James Franco, »

Rumor: Former Spider-man Star James Franco May Be Up For The Lead In Shane Black's The Predator

15 July 2016 10:31 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A few weeks back, we received word that 20th Century Fox had moved up the release of Shane Black's The Predator from March 2018 to February 9, 2018 and now, it sounds like they may have started  We have a fresh piece of news for you, hot off the rumor mill, from Jeff Sneider, formerly of The Wrap, on today's installment of Meet the Movie Press, about James Franco (Spider-Man trilogy) possibly being in line to headline Black's upcoming Predator sequel. The news is strictly a rumor at this point, but considering Sneider's track record, there's almost definitely some weight to it.

Dwayne Johnson Is Now the Highest Paid Actor in the World

13 July 2016 12:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a relatively short period of time, Dwayne Johnson went from being just another wrestler who was trying to make some extra money as a movie star, to one of the most prolific movie stars on the planet. It looks like all of that hard work has paid off. According to a new report, it looks like The Rock is now the highest paid actor in all of Hollywood for 2016.

According to Forbes, who just published their new Celebrity 100 list for 2016, Johnson made $64.5 million this year, making him the highest paid actor on the list. He came in at number 19 overall, and there were some people, such as his Central Intelligence co-star Kevin Hart, who made some money acting above him on the list. But Johnson was the highest paid person on the list who made the lion's share of his money from movies and TV.

Charlie Kaufman Reflects On His Career: ‘I Feel Like I F*cking Blew It’

12 July 2016 9:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“I feel like I fucking blew it.”

Charlie Kaufman was talking about his career. More specifically, he was addressing his supposed failure to capitalize on the momentum generated by his scripts for “Being John Malkovich,” “Adaptation” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Once upon a time, Kaufman’s name was spoken at Hollywood lunches with the same breathless excitement and opportunistic fervor that studio executives tend to reserve for young starlets  — back then, he commanded more attention (if not more money) than any other screenwriter since “Lethal Weapon” scribe Shane Black. His potential in the industry seemed positively zoo-sized.

These days, so far as Kaufman is concerned, that’s no longer the case.

“I don’t feel like I’ve got that cachet that I had at a certain point,” he said, looking hard at the table between us. “I see people seizing the moment when they have the »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Adds The Nice Guys’ Angourie Rice

6 July 2016 3:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We thought the final two additions to the seemingly ever-expanding cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming would surely be the last, but they just keep coming. THR has just announced that The Nice Guys breakout star, Angourie Rice, will also head to Atlanta to join Tom Holland and co., who are currently shooting the Marvel/Sony Spidey reboot.

The 15-year-old Aussie actress doesn’t have a whole lot on her CV just yet, but she’s coming off huge critical acclaim for her role as Ryan Gosling’s character’s daughter in Shane Black’s action comedy.

No details on her role in Homecoming are given (for a change), but considering most of the other younger cast members seem to be playing students in Peter Parker’s high-school, it’s a decent bet Rice is too. Of course, that hasn’t stopped the speculation from kicking into overdrive, and many fans reckon »

6 July 2016 3:04 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We thought the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast had finally filled out, but now THR reports that 15-year-old Angourie Rice will also make an appearance in the Marvel/Sony reboot, following her highly praised turn in Shane Black's The Nice Guys. Her exact role is being kept under wraps, but some recent set snaps seem to confirm that the rest of the younger cast members are playing Peter Parker's (Tom Holland) high-school pals, so there's a decent chance Rice will be too. The question is, will that character be someone familiar to comic fans?

Arnold Schwarzenegger Gets to the Choppa in Trailer For New Restoration of ‘Predator’

5 July 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“If it bleeds, we can kill it.” The famous line from Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1987 favorite Predator seems to have been adapted by film studios to, “If it’s shot, we can restore it.” A slew of revitalizations and restorations have been pouring out into the market — from little-known foreign flicks to indie favorites and mass blockbusters — in waves. The first trailer has now been released for the French HD restoration of Predator. The quality is crisp, with Ah-nahlds rippling muscles covered in mud more clearly rendered than ever before.

Although no U.S. release has been announced yet for the restoration, we imagine it will arrive here before Shane Black‘s new film in the franchise. That’s set for a release in February 2018, and he recently said, “I want people to say, ‘The Predator is coming, I know it’s coming, we want to see it, it’s mysterious, »
