35 Things to Know about The Expendables 3 from Our Set Visit

3 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sylvester Stallone, Randy Couture, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren and Jason Statham are walking through an abandoned building.  The hallways are torn apart.  Debris is everywhere.  The building looks like it's in the middle of a war zone.  As the Expendables, clad in black clothing and carrying massive automatic weapons, take in their surroundings, they slowly make their way down a long hallway and carefully try to see what's ahead.  As they reach a closed door they stop.  Stallone motions with his head to open the door and in an instant Couture kicks it open and they all rush in. Last September, when director Patrick Hughes was filming The Expendables 3 in Sofia, Bulgaria, I was invited to visit the set with a few other reporters.  As a fan of The Expendables movies and especially the cast, I was excited to see them in action, and what I saw »

3 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last year, when The Expendables 3 was filming in Bulgaria, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters.   As most of you know, The Expendables 3 has Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  Returning for the sequel are Jason StathamJet LiDolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer and Harrison Ford joining the cast along with Kellan LutzGlen PowellRobert Davi, Mma star Ronda Rousey, and welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz. While on set, one of the people I really wanted to talk to was director Patrick Hughes.  But as you might imagine, he was incredibly busy trying to make his day, so we were never able to get any time with him.  Thankfully, last week Lionsgate set up an exclusive phone interview with him, »

The Expendables 3 Set Visit!

7 hours ago | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

On the edge of Sofia, Bulgaria lies Nu Boyana Studios, a place that may not sound familiar to you, but has been a staple of production for a number of films in recent years, including Olympus Has Fallen , 300: Rise of an Empire , Conan the Barbarian 3D and Kon-Tiki . Even though I've known it for some time, it doesn't fully hit me until I'm exiting the production van and I see the cast - I'm here to meet The Expendables . About 30 yards away from me I can see Jason Statham chatting with someone amid a crowd of other actors clad in kevlar and bandanas. Make-up and hair people scuttle about, making sure that everyone's scar and dust-clad faces are camera ready as the day's work is about to begin. It's at that moment that the man himself, the legend, the creator of this »

Film Review: 'Locke'

20 hours ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Cementing itself as one of the best British offerings of the year thanks to a tour de force solo turn from Tom Hardy - whose titular labourer feels like he's been hewn straight from a block of his own beloved concrete - Steven Knight's Locke (2013) harks back to the bygone era of the one-person show. With only one discernible location - the interior of an expensive yet tellingly practical SUV gliding towards a date with destiny - Knight's follow-up to last year's Jason Statham revenger Hummingbird (2013) is more drive 'em up than beat 'em up. It's also utterly enraptured in the subtle drama of one perfectly ordinary man whose life begins to crumble around him after a past trespass comes back to haunt him. »

Fast & Furious 7 To Film With Paul Walker’s Brothers

20 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Actor Paul Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, will fill in for some of the scenes in Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furious 7.

On Tuesday, the film’s official Facebook page made this statement.

A Note to the Fans of Fast & Furious:

The Fast & Furious saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans.

Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film.

We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that too. Paul had already shot his »

Paul Walker’s Brothers Will Help Out On Fast & Furious 7

22 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For several months now, we’ve known that Paul Walker would remain in Fast & Furious 7, despite his tragic death. Universal announced that they would retire the character but that he would still show up via body doubles and CGI. Today, we’re hearing that the actor’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, will be helping out with the production.

If you recall, shortly after Walker’s death, both of his brothers were said to have been approached by the studio. At the time though, we hadn’t received any official confirmation. Now, Universal has made an announcement on the film’s Facebook page, explaining what exactly is going on.

Check it out below:

Paul Walker’s Brothers Caleb & Cody Step In for Fast & Furious 7

23 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Fast & Furious saga was dealt an unimaginable blow at the end of last year, when leading man Paul Walker died in a tragic car accident. Production on the upcoming Fast & Furious 7 was halted, giving the cast and crew time to grieve for their lost family member, and to make a decision as to what to do with the incomplete film.

It was soon decided that the franchise would continue, using the footage that Walker had already shot for the seventh movie, and production started up again earlier this month.

The way in which the film would continue was still unknown when it did, but now the franchise’s Facebook has revealed that Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, are stepping in to help complete the rest of the film in his place.

We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our Fast family. »

Paul Walker's Brothers Will Stand-In for 'Fast & Furious 7'

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fast & Furious 7 is back up and running after the tragic death of franchise star Paul Walker, and as rumored in a story from December, the actor's two brothers, Caleb Walker and Cody Walker, will be standing-in for some uncompleted action sequences as this sequel prepares to send Walker's character Brian O'Conner off into the sunset. As previously reported, the film will also use CGI to help finalize the movie in honor of the fallen action star.

Paul Walker had already done most of the dramatic work needed for this follow-up to last year's Fast & Furious 6. It was decided by director James Wan, the cast and his crew that they would rework the screenplay so that they didn't have to scrap any of the late Walker's finished scenes.

Here is the official statement from the makers of Fast & Furious 7

Paul Walker's Brothers Helping Finish 'Fast & Furious 7'

23 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Back in March a rumor circulated that the production of Fast & Furious 7 would use body doubles and facial replacement to fill in gaps in the action due to the unfortunate death of star Paul Walker. This wasn't really all that newsworthy given facial replacement is used a lot in Hollywood, but today Universal has officially confirmed the news while adding information that it's Walker's brothers, Caleb and Cody Walker, that have joined the production to help out. Here's the official statement from the studio's Facebook page: The Fast & Furious saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other.

The Gang Reunites In New Photo From The Expendables 3

15 April 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I think it’s safe to say that most action fans are looking forward to The Expendables 3. The first two films were a ton of fun, and despite the fact that the third outing looks to be a clone of its predecessors, I have no doubt that it will be just as enjoyable. Not only do we have returning cast members in Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture, but we’ll also be seeing some new faces show up in the form of Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Harrison Ford, among others. It’s a great cast and seeing everyone on screen together will surely be a treat.

Today, Lionsgate released a new photo from the film, featuring director Patrick Hughes with some of his stars (Stallone, Lundgren, Statham, Snipes, Couture and Crews). They don’t seem to be doing anything aside from posing for the camera, »

Avi Arad & Matt Tolmach interview: Spider-Man, Hulk

15 April 2014 1:41 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Simon Brew 16 Apr 2014 - 06:23

The producers of the new Spider-Man movies chat to us about their plans for the Spider-Man universe. Plus: Ghost Rider, Hulk and Statham...

At the press junket for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, held in London last week, we started by chatting to the thoroughly lovely and amazingly calm director of the film, Marc Webb (you can read that interview here). In fact, so calm and warm was Webb, that it seemed a logical place to start when talking to the two men behind the scenes guiding the Spider-Man movie universe - producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

I've just come to you from interviewing Marc Webb, and I don't think I've ever interviewed a more relaxed film director! Does he ever get angry?

Matt: He's dangerous, dangerous!

He seems the calmest, quietest person. Just reassure me that he has a rage moment in there somewhere? »

Marc Webb interview: Spider-Man, hidden set cameras

14 April 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Simon Brew 15 Apr 2014 - 06:49

The director of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Marc Webb, tells us about the film, and the lengths people go to to find out what's going on...

Marc Webb's third film as director - following (500) Days Of Summer and The Amazing Spider-Man - sees him return for the second part of his webslinger trilogy. He was in London last week to talk about the film, and we chatted to him about the first film, directing action, Statham, and the day a drone camera landed on set...

I was a bit torn on your first Spider-Man film, if I'm being truthful with you, but I enjoyed this one a lot more. I couldn't help but think back to Tim Burton, when he made Batman and Batman Returns. He always said that his second Batman film as being far more of his film than the one before. »

Dear God, Let This Be "The Last Mission"

10 April 2014 9:32 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

If you, like me, missed the 2008 Jason Statham medieval action flick In the Name of the King (based on the Dungeon Siege video games) then you probably also missed its less “prestigious” 2011 sequel In the Name of the King 2: Two Worlds. All of which to say, you probably were not holding out for the rumored threequel In the Name of the King 3: The Last Mission starring Prison Break’s Dominic Purcell, which has finally been released on Blu-ray. Nevertheless, Uwe Boll’s tireless series continues to adapt this medieval video game series.
