Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

'Jungle Book' Selfies with Bill Murray and Christopher Walken

3 September 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Jon Favreau is moving from his hit comedy Chef directly into the family adventure of Disney's The Jungle Book, and as he did on his previous effort, he is sharing selfies with the cast. Today, we get a look at Christopher Walken, who is playing King Louie, as well as Bill Murray ,who is playing Baloo, and newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli.

Jon Favreau shared these selfies on his personal Facebook page, and they offer our first look at Neel Sethi since he was cast several weeks ago. In the movie, Baloo and Mowgli will be Jungle bros, and though the big bear will be CGI in the finished film, it looks like the two actors are taking a moment to form their bond.

While Warner Bros. is also in gearing up to shoot The Jungle Book: Origins, Disney's version of the classic Rudyard Kipling is said to be a more lighthearted affair. »

Benedict Cumberbatch to roar as Shere Khan in Andy Serkis's 'Jungle Book'

19 August 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we already documented (see video above), Benedict Cumberbatch is a huge admirer of his "Hobbit" co-star Andy Serkis - and now he's re-teaming up with the man behind Gollum for the latter's directorial debut. The "Sherlock" star is set to voice villainous man-eating tiger Shere Khan in the upcoming Warner Bros. adaptation, which is based on Rudyard Kipling's classic stories, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film will be a mixture of live-action and performance capture, the latter of which Serkis has become famous for thanks to his work on Peter Jackson's Tolkien films and in Fox's "Planet of the Apes" reboots. The Callie Kloves-scripted project is one of two "Jungle Book" films currently in development; Disney has a live-action/CGI version in the pipeline with Jon Favreau directing, Bill Murray (Baloo), Idris Elba (Shere Khan), Ben Kingsley (Bagheera), Christopher Walken (King Louie), Giancarlo Esposito (Akela »

Benedict Cumberbatch to Voice Shere Khan in Andy Serkis’ Jungle Book: Origins

19 August 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jon Favreau’s version of The Jungle Book for Disney already has Neel Sethi, Lupita Nyong’o, Idris ElbaScarlett Johansson, Sir Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken and Giancarlo Esposito on board and is barreling towards an October 9, 2015 debut, but now Andy Serkis’ rendition for Warner Bros., which is now titled Jungle Book: Origins, is making some moves, too. Serkis’ Jungle Book just locked its very first star, Benedict Cumberbatch.  He’ll voice the film’s villain, Shere Khan, a tiger who’d rather not have any humans in his territory at all.  Hit the jump for more on Cumberbatch’s casting.  Jungle Book: Origins is set for an October 21, 2016 debut. The news comes from THR with the outlet pointing out that Cumberbatch will be up against Elba who’s voicing the character for Favreau’s film.  However, it does seem as though one film might end up being a bit darker than the other. »

Benedict Cumberbatch to Voice Shere Khan in 'Jungle Book: Origins'

19 August 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While it seems like Disney's new live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book is ahead of the curve with a fall 2015 release date and a fully assembled cast that includes Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o, Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Idris Elba, Ben Kingsley and Bill Murray, the competing adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic is marching onward. Earlier this month, the studio dated Jungle Book: Origins for release in October of 2016, and now they have their first cast member as THR reports Benedict Cumberbatch will voice the tiger Shere Khan, the man-eating villain of the film directed by Andy Serkis. The question is whether or not general audiences will be interested in another adaptation of the familiar story about an orphan abandoned in the jungle and raised by wolves just one year later, especially with a title that makes it sounds like a prequel to Disney's version. Anyway, both Serkis and Cumberbatch »

Warner Bros.’ Jungle Book: Origins Gains Benedict Cumberbatch As Shere Khan

19 August 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Disney clearly has the lead in the race to adapt Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book into a big-budget blockbuster, Warner Bros. is quietly moving along with its own take, now officially titled Jungle Book: Origins. Andy Serkis is making his directorial debut on the pic, after having served as Peter Jackson’s second unit director on the Hobbit trilogy. Now, the first voice lead for the film has been announced - Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch will be lending his voice to the fearsome tiger Shere Khan.

Jungle Book: Origins centers on an orphaned human boy Mowgli, who is raised by wolves and eventually befriends the bear Baloo and the panther Bagheera. Khan, a vicious predator, is Mowgli’s sworn enemy, and each has vowed to slay the other.

Callie Kloves penned the script. Her father Steve, who penned seven out of eight Harry Potter films, is on board as a producer. »

TV Fight Club: 'The Sopranos' vs. 'Breaking Bad'

13 August 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

They’re both groundbreaking cable dramas about a crime lord who tries to keep his suburban family together while building his empire. Both have also often been called the best drama series of all time. In one corner: HBO’s The Sopranos (1999-2007), which pioneered the serialized anti-hero drama trend. In the other: AMC’s Breaking Bad (2008-2013), which gathered viewers and critical esteem with each passing season until some declared that it had surpassed its predecessor.
