Where are the cast of Coyote Ugly now? Here's what happened to Piper Perabo, LeAnn Rimes and the coyotes

3 August 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

15 years ago today, the doors of the Coyote Ugly saloon swung open, turning a low-key Jerry Bruckheimer-produced coming of age film into a beloved cult hit.

But what happened to coyotes Piper Perabo, Tyra Banks and the rest of the movie's cast? To mark the movie's birthday we find out what they've all been doing in the 15 years since Coyote Ugly.

Piper Perabo

Since playing aspiring singer Violet Sanford in Coyote Ugly, Piper Perabo's career has veered from the sublime (2005's The Prestige) to the ridiculous (2008's Beverly Hills Chihuahua).

The film roles have kept on coming, but recently she's been best known as the lead in TV series Covert Affairs, which ran for five seasons on the USA Network between 2010 and 2014.

Adam Garcia

Tom Cruise: A Retrospective

1 August 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anyone growing into pop culture consciousness during the mid-2000s will be familiar with a certain type of Tom Cruise, one labeled with some criticism in a recent Buzzfeed article as “Tom Cruise 2.0.” To them, Tom Cruise may have first become familiar as Ethan Hunt in the first Mission: Impossible movie, as an action star who, in spite of fearful insurance agents and publicists, prefers to do his own stunts—especially if they include declaring maniacal love for Katie Holmes atop Oprah Winfrey’s couch. He was probably their first introduction to the alien world of Scientology, or perhaps already known as the face of another hero thrust into the supernatural, having once served as the model for the titular character in Disney’s Aladdin.

This Tom Cruise, in spite of several critical successes in the past 10 years, has yet to shake completely the straws of tabloid fodder that prick up every time someone dares, »

'Top Gun 2' Will Have Real Jets, No CGI Says Tom Cruise

24 July 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been awhile since we've heard about any movement on Top Gun 2. But with Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation opening next weekend, Tom Cruise is back on the press circuit, and sure enough, the subject came up. The actor had some interesting things to say about the potential sequel that will make fans very happy. Speaking with Extra, he assures eager audiences worldwide that the movie will not be filled with CGI fighter jets.

Tom Cruise is still very much interested in reprising his iconic role as Maverick in a sequel to the 1986 action drama Top Gun. It certainly changed the landscape of summer movies, for both better and worse. But it's most notable for its use of real aircrafts and military sanctioned sea faring vessels. Producers also had assistance from the Us Navy in helping to insure the film was accurate in its depiction of United States Naval Aviators. »

DiCaprio, Scott Team On Drug Kingpin Film

23 July 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

20th Century Fox has won an intense auction for "The Cartel," the new book by author Don Winslow ("Savages") which Ridley Scott has committed to direct the film adaptation of.

The sprawling crime epic closes out the story that began in Winslow's 2006 novel "The Power of the Dog," with both books dealing with the futility of the drug war and the battle between DEA agent Art Keller and Mexican drug kingpin Adan Berrera.

In 'Dog', Keller befriends Berrera on his way up the ranks. In 'Cartel', Berrera escapes prison and a bloody feud breaks out. Leonardo DiCaprio is being courted to play the role of Keller.

Fox reportedly handed out a commitment of nearly $6 million for book rights and screenwriting fees to both 'Cartel' and 'Dog' with Shane Salerno penning the script.

The studio beat out DiCaprio's own Appian Way, Jerry Bruckheimer, Sony Pictures, an offer by HBO for a »

29 June 2015 4:41 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Cruise is definitely returning as Maverick in the Top Gun sequel and it'll find him battling with drones.

The long-awaited movie - the follow-up to the 1986 original - is being written by Justin Marks, but producer David Ellison has already revealed a few plot details.

Top Gun: Why Tom Cruise's flying actioner is an unintentional gay classic

"[Marks] has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today," Collider quotes Ellison as saying.

"It is very much a world we live in today where it's drone technology and fifth generation fighters... it's really exploring the end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today."

Speaking about leading star Cruise, Ellison said: "There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie, and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is »

Trevor Rabin’s Rousing Scores a Testament to Life After Yes

23 June 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Trevor Rabin had no idea that, on Nov. 4, 2008, he was about to be immortalized.

Barack Obama had just been elected president of the United States, and as he finished his acceptance speech, the music that began to play was Rabin’s inspirational theme from the football movie “Remember the Titans.”

For a white South African whose family fought against apartheid when it was not just unfashionable but downright dangerous, this prominent showcase of his music — written for a movie about black and white high-school players learning to get along and win the season — was especially meaningful.

“I was happy I was on the winning ticket,” Rabin says with a laugh.

Yet that’s just one moment in a long, strange trip that began in Johannesburg and ended in Hollywood, where Rabin is now an in-demand film composer with no fewer than 13 Jerry Bruckheimer movies under his belt (including “Titans,” “Armageddon »

Trevor Rabin Strikes Chord With Collaborators

23 June 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“He can do just about anything,” producer Jerry Bruckheimer says of composer Trevor Rabin. “That’s what you want: a composer who’s creative, who understands the musical rhythm and language of scenes, how to bring out the emotion that the director and actors were striving for.”

It was Bruckheimer who discovered Rabin’s facility with sports movies. “He can write those great anthems, those triumphant melodies that every athlete would love to hear as he’s making the last basket or the last goal or the last touchdown. It’s something that’s innate in his talent.”

Bruckheimer is not the only filmmaker to sing Rabin’s praises. Jon Turteltaub, who directed the “National Treasure” films, laughs about their initial musical encounter: “He played us a bunch of music with scenes. I so despised the instrumentation he used, I looked at him and said, ‘This sounds like European porn! »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

8 big movies whose scripts dramatically changed

17 June 2015 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Con Air, Last Action Hero, Brainscan and Die Hard 4.0 could all have been very different films, going by the early drafts of their scripts.

The life of a Hollywood screenwriter might sound like a glamorous one, but it's not all premieres and champagne.

As one of the smaller cogs in an often complex machine, the writer can often find his or her work changed almost beyond recognition by other hands. Such is the case with the following movies, which were all changed quite drastically in one way or another between their original draft and their final cut.

Some scripts were pressed into service as sequels. Some began in one genre and wound up in another. Rather than put together an exhaustive list, we've chosen a few examples of the script changes that intrigued or bemused us most.

11 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Traditionally known for its glitzy backdrop, red carpets and press junkets, the seaside Monte Carlo TV Film Festival,created 55 ago by the principality of Monaco’s Prince Rainier III, is benefiting from the rising popularity of TV drama, luring more and more film talent and filmmakers, notably from Europe, where local TV industries are flourishing.

Since taking the helm two years ago, CEO Laurent Puons, a Monaco native and former pro boxer, says he has been working hard to reposition the festival as a relevant industry event, emphasizing the importance of the international competition, bringing in high-profile industry figures and scoring prestigious series’ world premieres.

Although it’s scheduled just two months after Mip TV, the festival has managed to host world premieres of shows like “Crossing Lines” and “CSI: Cyber” and will this year showcase the European premiere of “Aquarius” as well as the French premieres of “Empire” (set »

By the time this eventually goes into production, both actors will be over 60 years old!
