Johnny Knoxville Joins Skiptrace; Douglas Booth Has Pride And Prejudice And Zombies; Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin Put Me Before You; Alden Ehrenreich Says Hail Caesar!

3 September 2014 4:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We have some casting news for you this afternoon: Johnny Knoxville has teamed up with Jackie Chan for director Renny Harlin's Skiptrace. Douglas Booth is joining the ensemble of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin Will Both Put Me Before You. Alden Ehrenreich is the latest to join the Coen Brothers' Hail Caesar! Hit the jump for more on these casting stories. First we have Johnny Knoxville joining Jackie Chan in director Renny Harlin's Skiptrace.  Per Deadline, Knoxville will be replacing Seann William Scott as a "mouthy American gambler" in the film, which is currently shooting in China. Sounds like a good role for Knoxville and I'm really hoping Harlin can bring some of his early 90's swagger to this material. Next up is the back-from-the-dead Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a movie that actually seems like it will finally get  made with each passing day. »

Johnny Knoxville, Not Seann Wiliam Scott, in Jackie Chan's 'Skiptrace'

3 September 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Earlier this summer, Die Hard 2 director Renny Harlin was attached to direct Skiptrace, a new comedic action thriller in the same vein as Midnight Run. Last fall, Jackie Chan and Seann William Scott were slated to lead the film about Hong Kong detective (Chan) who teams up with a mouthy American gambler to save his niece (Fan Bingbing) and take down the city’s most notorious criminal. Now Deadline reports Scott won't be in the film, but his Dukes of Hazzard co-star Johnny Knoxville has stepped up to take the role of the gambler, making sure the action thriller still feels like it's from the late 90s or early 2000s. More below! Knoxville's ventures outside of straight-up comedy have been hit or miss with Walking Tall being solid and Men in Black II being atrocious. Teaming Knoxville with Chan seems like such a strange idea that it just might work. »

Johnny Knoxville To Star With Jackie Chan In Skiptrace

3 September 2014 1:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Out of the elderly prosthetics and back in the action comedy saddle once again, Johnny Knoxville has signed on for Skiptrace. The Jackass star will appear alongside Jackie Chan in the globe-trotting action-com.

The film has just started shooting in China, with The Long Kiss Goodnight director Renny Harlin at the helm. Chan plays Hong Kong detective Bennie Black who must track down the missing niece of a crime boss with the help of a loudmouth American, Connor Watts. The jabbermouth sidekick role was originally tapped by Seann William Scott, who for unknown reasons has dropped out. Now that showy part has gone to Knoxville, who is en route to China to begin filming immediately.

The film’s producers are pitting it as a Midnight Run-style comedy – while it sounds to us like Taken meets Rush Hour. Expect the usual cultural fish-out-of-water scenarios to elbow in laughs. Chan’s »

Exclusive: Johnny Knoxville has been set to star alongside Jackie Chan in Skiptrace, the Renny Harlin-directed film that has just begun shooting in China. Last I wrote about this, Chan was going to star opposite Seann William Scott and X-Men: Days Of Future Past‘s Fan Bingbing in the tale of a Hong Kong detective (Chan) who teams up with a mouthy American gambler (Scott) to save his niece and take down the city’s most notorious criminal. Bingbing is in, but Scott exited and Knoxville has stepped up to play that role. The tone of the movie is Midnight Run.

Video Interview: Director Michael Dowse Discusses 'What If' & 'Goon'

18 August 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's the essence of flirting." So how do you refresh and revitalize the romantic comedy genre? That's what I was hoping to find out from Canadian director Michael Dowse, the man behind the excellent film What If. I first saw this film at last year's Tiff 2013, and loved it, ranking it as one of my 5 favorite films of that festival. It was known as The F Word back then (and still is in Canada) but was retitled to What If for its Us release, which is something I had to ask him about. What If stars Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan as a young couple perfect for each other–their chemistry was a topic, too. View the full video interview below. Michael Dowse is also the director of the films Fubar, Fubar: Balls to the Wall, It's All Gone Pete Tong and Goon with Seann William Scott. If you've seen any of those films, »

The Definitive ‘What the F**K?’ Movies: 50-41

15 August 2014 7:21 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

So…what do I mean by “What the F**k?” Movies? These are the films that, upon completing your viewing, you seriously worry about the director’s sanity. Or you can’t really comprehend what you just saw. Or you know what you watched was something magical, but can’t really put the pieces together in your mind. Or, worse, you know what happened, but certifiably it’s insane. But with this “definition” comes a few caveats: no horror films and no fully animated films. Those genres lean a little too crazy to begin with – it’s more fun to look at films that force a sense of realism, even if it’s just on the surface.

50. Southland Tales (2007)

Directed by: Richard Kelly

Not all these movies are necessarily “good.” In 2001, writer/director Richard Kelly found cult status with the mind-bending Donnie Darko. It took six years for him to »

Interview: What If Goon Director Michael Dowse Tackled an Unconventional Rom-Com?

12 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Filmmaker Michael Dowse hasn't exactly broken out in the United States, although in his home country of Canada, he's known for a couple of cult favorites like the two "Fubar" movies and the hockey comedy Goon, starring Seann William Scott and Jay Baruchel. Neither of those movies could possibly prepare his fans for his decision to direct What If, a comedy that looks at the relationship between two young people whose situation forces one of them into "the friend zone." »

What If

11 August 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

What If

Directed by: Michael Dowse

Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver, Megan Park

Running Time: 1 hr 40 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: August 8, 2014 (Chicago)

Plot: A young man (Radcliffe) begins to fall for a young woman (Kazan) who has a boyfriend.

Who’S It For? Those who watch romantic comedies so that they can have something on while cleaning the house.

Overall

With respect to its desire for both romance and comedy What If tries too hard. As in, character-falls-out-of-an-open-window-after-getting-pepper-in-his-eye-and-someone-trying-to-help-accidentally-opens-a-door-on-his-face-and-sends-him-to-the-pavement-two-stories-below trying too hard. This is also the same type of film that genuinely uses impulsive international travel, where characters are given certain ideas of financial constraints, but nonetheless travel back and forth because of the need to have a face-to-face confrontation.

What If is this year’s most misguided romantic comedy and is gravely in need of a punchline; it could be the indie comedy’s They Came Together »

Flickering Myth Reaction – Leaked Deadpool Test Footage

31 July 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team give their thoughts on the leaked Deadpool test footage…

Perhaps the biggest surprise coming out of San Diego Comic-Con was the leaked test footage for the long-gestating Deadpool movie, directed by Tim Miller and featuring voice work by Ryan Reynolds. It was taken down, put back up, taken back down and then put up by Miller himself.

Watch the footage in glorious HD here.

So, what did you writing and editorial team think of the footage?

Anthony Donovan Stokes: I read the script and it’s a pretty close to the footage was saw and was very funny. Pretty much what I want from a Deadpool movie.

Oliver Davis: Bizarre. I like the idea of the super(aware)hero, but whenever I’ve picked up the books in the past, they’re too self-referential for me. Which is weird, because I love stuff like that usually. »

15 American Pie quotes that got us through high school

10 July 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Start to feel very old, because American Pie celebrates its 15th anniversary this week. The '90s comedy classic was an instant box office hit and helped launch the careers of its leading cast.

Sequels followed, but none of them quite managed to recapture the magic of that glorious first time. There was always something vaguely comforting about American Pie - no matter how bad we had it in school, it was never quite as bad as the experiences of Jim, Oz, Finch and the gang.

To mark American Pie's birthday, Digital Spy has collected 15 of our favourite quotes from the 1999 movie below.

Jim (Jason Biggs)

1. "You realise we're all going to go to college as virgins. They probably have special dorms for people like us."

2. "Guys, uh, what exactly does third base feel like?"

3. "I would like to make an announcement - there is a gorgeous woman masturbating on my bed. »

400 Days ends production

24 June 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The 20-day shoot has wrapped on New Artists Alliance and XLrator Media’s psychological sci-fi starring Brandon Routh, Dane Cook and Caity Lotz from UK hit The Machine.

Ben Feldman, Tom Cavanagh and Grant Bowler also star in writer-director Matt Osterman’s story of astronauts on a simulated voyage to a distant planet designed to test psychological effects of deep space travel.

When the crew’s mental state begins to deteriorate they are forced to escape the vessel and learn they may not be in a simulation after all.

Rounding out the key cast are Fernanda Romero, Sally Pressman, Dominic Bogart and Frank Ashmore.

“Matt has penned a mind-bending screenplay that reminds us why we make movies to begin with,” said Naa partner Gabriel Cowan, who expects to announce an international sales agent shortly.

“Its complete sense of awe, mystery and character grabbed us right away. And the crazy reality is that Nasa and the European Space Agency »
