Patrick Wilson Plays a Sex-Addicted Politician in Trailer for 'Zipper'

22 July 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"I set out to help people, I never said I was better than them..." Alchemy has debuted the trailer for the sex thriller Zipper, which dramatizes the sexual urges of a man on the cusp of a bright future. Patrick Wilson stars as a politician on the rise who ends up losing everything "due to his inability to fight off his obsessive temptation for other women." This is a thriller because they really play up the angle of "look how deadly this can be to your life!" with all the endless infidelity. The cast also includes Lena Headey, Dianna Agron, Alexandra Breckenridge, Richard Dreyfuss, John Cho and Ray Winstone. This looks interesting, but at the same time I'd kind of rather just go back and watch Joe Carnahan's Stretch again. Give it a watch. Here's the first official trailer for Mora Stephens' Zipper, in high def on Apple »

Punching the Numbers: Where Liam Neeson Lies in the History of “Hollywood’s Most Bankable Action Star” Runs

22 June 2015 7:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Liam Neeson is Hollywood’s most bankable action star. That’s a statement of fact, but how do we know it is fact? How much more bankable is he than others? First off, we take a look at the box office returns for his action films and match them against the budgets and see what sort of averages and trends pop up.

1st Disclosure: I am not a sabermetrics genius, I’m just a guy that likes to write about action movies. If somebody out there who is a sabermetrics genius saw this and said “There’s a better way to do this.”, it would only bring me joy to see my amateur work improved upon.

2nd Disclosure: I won’t be including results of The Grey and A Walk Among the Tombstones in this pool of data, while both were marketed as action vehicles and have moments of action in them, »

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, »

Sos This Week #11: Can Brad Pitt, Netflix, and ‘War Machine’ change the game?

12 June 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Netflix this week picked up David Michod’s War Machine, a new war comedy and satire starring Brad Pitt. The actor is the biggest yet to make the leap to Netflix’s streaming distribution, following the likes of Adam Sandler, Cary Fukunaga, the Duplass Brothers and more who have received multi-picture deals. How is Netflix changing the game and putting pressure on studios only interested in making larger, tentpole blockbusters? Plus, we run down several new trailers and have a lot of potential Wtf of the week contenders.

New Projects: Joe Carnahan circles ‘Bad Boys 3′

11 June 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Unless you’re talking about Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters or Toy Story 3, it’s usually not a good sign to hear of a sequel to a long retired franchise, least of all from a new, upstart director (just ask Jurassic World). This week however a director started a project that might even be an improvement on the original.

Deadline exclusively reported Joe Carnahan’s (The Grey) possible involvement in Bad Boys 3. David Guggenheim (Safe House) penned a screenplay for the sequel to Michael Bay’s 1995 and 2003 films, and the studio is hoping to move negotiations along quickly, as they plan to approach both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence to return.

We talked recently about Brad Pitt‘s involvement on a new project just bought by Netflix, but their top competitor Amazon has signed another major name: Terry Gilliam. Indiewire spoke with the cult director and Monty Python alum, »

'Bad Boys 3' Is Still Very Much Alive Apparently... New Writer/Director in Talks to Board

10 June 2015 4:35 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

By the time this eventually goes into production, both actors will be over 60 years old! Another year, and yet another "Bad Boys 3" update that may or may not result in actual progress towards the film becoming a reality. It looks like a "Bad Boys 3" movie is indeed closer to becoming a reality with Deadline reporting today that Sony is "in early talks" with Joe Carnahan to re-write the script, as well as direct the film. Our last update on this was in a year ago, when one of the stars of the film, Martin Lawrence, revealed to Conan O'Brien on his late night show, that he spoke to producer Jerry Bruckheimer just prior to his appearance on O'Brien's »

Joe Carnahan in Talks to Write & Direct Bad Boys 3

10 June 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Joe Carnahan In Talks To Rewrite Script For And Direct Bad Boys 3. The director of films as as incredible as Narc (2002) and The Grey (2011) and films as mediocre and forgettable as Smokin’ Aces (2006) and The A-Team (2010) is in early talks to rewrite David Guggenheim‘s script for Bad Boys III and possibly direct.

Bad Boys (1995) was one of my favourite action films of the 1990s. All of Michael Bay‘s kineticism was on display, but restrained and measured. This was before he got all that ‘Fuck You Money’ and retreated to chugging out plastic rollercoaster rides in the form of Transformers movies. The attitude of that movie was fun and in your face, it was a rated R buddy-cop film that was filled with incredible action scenes.

The pinnacle of this great aforementioned combination of creative output is strangely found in Bad Boys 2, for most. I was always »

Joe Carnahan is Eying 'Bad Boys 3'c I'm In

10 June 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As a fan of Joe Carnahan's work -- Narc, Stretch, Smokin' Aces, The Grey -- I'm pretty much up for whatever he's working on next and the idea of him stepping in for Michael Bay and taking over the Bad Boys franchise sounds like something right up his alley. Word from Deadline is Carnahan has been brought on to take a pass at David Guggenheim's script for a Bad Boys 3 with eyes at possibly directing. The goal is to have the project ready for Will Smith to consider as soon as he's done shooting Suicide Squad with David Ayer. Considering Smith could use a couple big hits after After Earth and the modest returns for Focus, I have to imagine he'd be up for returning to one of his most popular franchise and I think we all know Martin Lawrence is in. In fact, Lawrence was on »

Joe Carnahan To Rewrite And Possibly Direct 'Bad Boys 3'

10 June 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For pretty much a decade, Sony has been trying to get Will Smith and Martin Lawrence to return and make "Bad Boys 3." In 2009, the studio hired Peter Craig ("The Town") to write a script, and when that one didn't take, David Guggenheim ("Safe House," "Stolen") was tapped to give it a whirl. And it seems more work needs to be done, and another high profile name is being brought into the fold. Joe Carnahan ("The Grey," "The A-Team," "Smokin' Aces") has been hired to rewrite the script with an eye to possibly direct the movie as well. So, time to start popping the champagne? Not quite. The most important cog in this machine, the picky Will Smith, hasn't agreed to anything just yet and Deadline notes that Sony is racing to get a new script done so the actor can "consider" the movie for his next project once he's finished with "Suicide Squad. »

Joe Carnahan in talks for Bad Boys 3

10 June 2015 6:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that a new Bad Boys film, the third in the franchise, is still in active development and may have found itself a director.

Smokin’ Aces and Narc helmer Joe Carnahan has been linked to the film, with early talks between the director and Sony rumoured to have already taken place. David Guggenheim (Safe House) has written the new film, which Sony is hoping will go into production within the next year after star Will Smith has completed his work on Warner Bros. Pictures’ DC adaptation, Suicide Squad. As yet, there’s no word on whether fellow co-star Martin Lawrence will feature.

Bad Boys was released in 1995, with its sequel arriving in 2003, and together the two films grossed over $410 million worldwide.

The Grey Director in Talks for Bad Boys 3

10 June 2015 5:18 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

Michael Bay has been interested in returning for a third "Bad Boys" installment, but has been busy with other projects. Now comes word that Sony Pictures is moving forward with the new sequel and is talks with Joe Carnahan (The Grey) to write and direct the film. Sony is hoping that Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will reprise their roles. In fact, the studio is rushing "Bad Boys 3" toward production in order to make the film be the next project for Smith after "Suicide Squad." The first "Bad Boys" movie was released in 1995 and earned only $141 million worldwide on a budget of $19 million. The 2003 sequel raised the budget to $130 million and grossed $273 million worldwide. »

The Grey's Joe Carnahan is in early talks to write and direct Bad Boys 3

10 June 2015 1:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bad Boys 3 could be moving forward with Joe Carnahan attached as director.

It's believed that The Grey director is in early talks to work on a draft script from Safe House's David Guggenheim, as well as possibly direct the action sequel.

Deadline first reported the news, which would mean Carnahan would take over from Michael Bay, who directed the first two Bad Boys films.

It's thought that Sony Pictures is hoping star Will Smith will take on the film as his next project after finishing work on Suicide Squad.

Smith starred alongside Martin Lawrence in 1995's Bad Boys, before both actors reprised their roles in 2003's sequel Bad Boys II.

In 2014, producer Jerry Bruckheimer told Digital Spy that he wanted Bay to return to the franchise.

"We'd love to get Michael Bay [but] he's very busy right now. Hopefully we can twist his arm and get him in there, »

Is Joe Carnahan Going To Direct Bad Boys 3?

10 June 2015 12:47 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It’s been a long time since we heard anything about Bad Boys 3, a movie that has been talked about a lot, but one I think we resign ourselves to never seeing the more we hear about it maybe happening. But the latest piece of news about the second sequel (fifteen years after Bad Boys 2) to Michael Bay’s most beloved franchise is something that fills me with hope, with Deadline reporting that Joe Carnahan, no stranger to big budget, over the top action thanks to The A-Team and Smokin’ Aces (but also capable of a whole lot more, as we saw with Narc and The Grey), is being brought in by Sony with an eye to re-write David Guggenheim’s existing script, and possibly direct if it finally goes forward. Michael Bay seems totally enamoured with giant CG robots at the moment, so if he isn’t returning, »
