Bradley Cooper Drops Out Of "Man From U.N.C.L.E." Feature Film

9 November 2011 8:59 PM, PST | | See recent CinemaRetro news »


Two of our spies are missing: the roles of actors to play Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin have yet to be cast.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. feature film curse continues. Since the late 1970s, efforts to turn the classic 1960s TV series starring Robert Vaughn, David McCallum and Leo G. Carroll have been thwarted at the last minute by a variety of factors. George Clooney was to play the Vaughn role of Napoleon Solo in a big screen production directed by Steven Soderbergh. Clooney dropped out because of old injuries that might have precluded him from performing certain stunts. Then Bradley Cooper seemed to be ready to take up the mantle until word came that he, too, has dropped out. At this point it looks like they may have to go back and hire Vaughn and McCallum for the project! No word on who is next in line for consideration »

Thursday, June 9:

Them! – The template for the atomic mutant monster genre, another surprise hit despite studio jitters. Joe Dante covers it here:

Nine years after Hiroshima the atomic chicken has come home to roost in the shape of giant ants, soon to be followed by jumbo mutant radioactive lizards, locusts, scorpions, etc. The near-biblical template for the dozens of nuclear monster movies that followed it, this is one of the most influential movies ever.

Old Ass Oscars: Spellbound (1945)

27 February 2011 9:40 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Every Sunday in February, Film School Rejects presents a nominee for Best Picture that was made before you were born and tells you why you should like it. This week, Old Ass Movies presents the story of a brilliant psycho-analyst, an impostor, some trademark Hitchcock, a little aiding and abeting, and the dreams of Salvador Dali. All of these elements are wrapped up in an Oscar nominated movie (that did not win) that Scientologists probably banned from their video library. Spellbound (1945) Directed by: Alfred Hitchcock Starring: Ingrid Berman, Gregory Peck, Michael Checkhov, Leo Carroll, and Rhonda Fleming Let’s get the record straight. The Academy (which is really thousands of individual voters and not some secret cabal meeting in the basement of the Kodak Theater) has gotten some things wrong over the years. For example, Alfred Hitchcock never won an award for Best Director. However, the numbers are there for his films. With »
