The other day, we half-joked about "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" being our most anticipated for the rest of the year. Of course, we are desperately counting the days until the comedy sequel arrives, but there are films that are probably a little higher on our watch-list. And perhaps at the very top is Bong Joon-Ho's "Snowpiercer." The Korean filmmaker, who was behind "Memories of Murder," "The Host" (the good one, not the Stephenie Meyer one) and "Mother" is one of the most exciting filmmakers in the world right now, so we've been following his English-language debut with eagle-eyes ever since it was announced, and even more so since he started to assemble a killer international cast. But the closer the film gets, and the more we see of it, the more desperate the wait for it becomes, and that's true of the latest batch of photos and posters for the movie that just arrived. »

If the three essential components to a slam-dunk film are captivating subject matter, great writing, and an amazing cast, The Iceman hits two out of three. The script feels anemic, and can’t even be rescued by the film’s completely overqualified cast that skillfully portrays the (true) life story of Richard Kuklinski – a Jersey city hitman and mass murderer who also happens to be a devoted husband and father. Relatively unknown before now, director Ariel Vromen managed to bring together a pretty impressive cast for his biggest film yet, including Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta, Chris Evans, Stephen Dorff, David Schwimmer, and James Franco.

Captain America star Chris Evans is looking to join the feature film adaptation of Stephen King's The Ten O'Clock People. Fright Night writer Tom Holland is set to helm the film, and he's no stranger to King's work. He's also directed King's The Langoliers and Thinner.
This will be a modernized take on the short story from King’s Nightmares and Dreamscapes. The story is set in Boston and follows a character named Brandon Pearson, "who in trying to kick his smoking habit uncovers a frightening aspect of reality that he plans to extinguish through extreme measures." The director had this to say in a statement:
This was Stephen trying to deal with his cigarette jones and the fairly new no-smoking laws back in the ’90s. This film will be a modernization of the original short story, a paranoid suspense piece.
I'm sure Evans will be great »

It was announced last year that Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child’s Play, Thinner) would write and direct a movie based on Stephen King’s short story, The Ten O’Clock People. While Justin Long was in talks to star in the movie previously, it’s been reported that another actor will replace him.
According to Deadline, Chris Evans (Captain America) is now circling the role after Justin Long had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. Should Evans sign on, the movie will begin shooting this fall in Atlanta. We previously talked to Tom Holland and he told us what to expect from the upcoming adaptation:
“Stephen and I had dinner when I was making The Langoliers and he had recently finished writing Nightmares and Dreamscapes, which had that short story. He was aggravated at dinner because we were both still smoking at the time. They still had smoking and non-smoking sections, »

When he got his big break as Johnny Storm in 2005.s terrible Fantastic Four update, I would have bet money I didn.t have on Chris Evans. career being an unchallenging one filled with romances and dumb comedies, with the occasional action hero role thrown in . in other words, the career of nearly every other good looking guy in Hollywood. But even within the roles that fall into the above genres, Evan never fails to impress, even when emaciated by CGI in Captain America. And while I.ve never had to judge an actor on how he might perform as someone possibly going insane while trying to quit smoking, I don.t see why Evans wouldn.t fit the bill. Deadline reports Evans is the latest actor in talks to join The Ten O.Clock People, the adaptation of a Stephen King short story to be directed by Tom Holland »
