Directed by Invincible's Ericson Core, the upcoming Point Break remake is gaining a lot of steam ahead of its production start date in the Summer. Gerard Butler has already signed on to play Bodie (originally played by Patrick Swayze), and Alcon Entertainment have announced a replacement for Keanu Reeves has been found, with Luke Bracey cast as Johnny Utah, who infiltrates Bodie's gang of adrenaline junkie bank robbers. A relative unknown, Bracey's most famous role to date is as Cobra Commander in G.I. Joe: Retaliation (not that you would recognise him, spending most of the time with his face covered by a reflective face plate), and is more than likely hoping to join Chris Hemsworth and Isla Fisher in the "Home and Away stars done good" club. Very little is known of the plot of the remake, but we do know that the Californian surf culture back drop of »

Sexy former 'Desperate Housewives' star Eva Longoria (below) is the latest to join new horror 'Visions', just one of the many genre project currently on the go over at Blumhouse Productions. Longoria will be joining a host of familiar faces already on board the project that includes Isla Fisher ('Now You See Me'), Jim Parsons ('The Big Bang Theory'), Gillian Jacobs ('Community') and Ellen Barkin ('The New Normal'). With the line-up already it does have a very 'comedic' feel to it, so we wonder just how tongue-in-cheek perhaps the action may be. 'Saw VI' helmer Kevin Greutert will be behind the camera lensing from a script provided by Lucas Sussman ('Below'). »
"Reno 911" co-creator Robert Ben Garant penned the script which begins three decades ago when the members of the religious cult Heaven's Veil commit suicide.
The sole survivor, a then five-year-old girl, is taken back to the compound thirty years later with a documentary crew to determine what really happened - the truth turns out to be far more terrifying.
Before that starts though, Blum is getting to work on "Visions" which "Desperate Housewives" star Longoria has joined. The story follows a pregnant woman (Isla Fisher) who moves with her husband to the countryside where she is plagued by visions of a sinister hooded figure. »

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay wear many hats in this industry. As writers, directors, and actors, they’ve leant their touch to countless comedies that have that distinct Ferrell-McKay edge: both Anchorman films, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Step Brothers, among others. That’s because they wear one of those hats together, as Gary Sanchez, Paraguayan financier, enterprenuer, and film producer at Gary Sanchez Productions. Ferrell and McKay have announced that Gary Sanchez’ next move is to launch a sister label that will focus on female-driven television and film projects. Gloria Sanchez Productions, named after Gary’s favorite step-grandaughter of course, will be headed by longtime Sanchez executive Jessica Elbaum. Elbaum worked with the duo on Step Brothers and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and served as the producer of their female-centric film Bachelorette in 2012, which starred Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, Isla Fisher, and Rebel Wilson. Apparently the Gloria Sanchez venture was Elbaum’s idea »

Over at Blumhouse Productions, Jason Blum is working away on a slew of buzzy horror projects, including sequels to his studio’s biggest hits (Sinister 2, Insidious: Chapter 3) and stand-alone flicks that he likely hopes can spark franchises (Ouija, Lazarus). Personally, I’m on already on the lookout for Visions, a Blumhouse pic that, despite its fairly generic premise, is building an increasingly promising cast. Now, Deadline is reporting that Desperate Housewives‘ Eva Longoria has climbed on board the project.
The actress joins Isla Fisher (Now You See Me), Gillian Jacobs (Community), and Anson Mount (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) in the horror-thriller, which focuses on a pregnant wife (Fisher) who begins to suffer terrifying visions of a hooded figure when she moves to the countryside with her husband (Mount). Longoria will play Fisher’s best friend, a glamorous, funny and sarcastic city girl who disapproves of her friend’s life decisions. »

With big names such as Isla Fisher, Anson Mount, Community‘s Gillian Jacobs and The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons already attached, Visions can boast in acquiring another famous TV name to its cast; Eva Longoria.
Visions follows the story of a pregnant woman (played by Isla Fisher) who moves to the countryside with her husband where she becomes plagued by visions of a sinister hooded figure. This is already giving me the creeps! Longoria is set to star as Fisher’s chic and fashionable friend, who disapproves of Fisher’s life choices.

The sequel to Now You See Me is definitely happening, and will shoot later this year.
Get ready to add another movie to the 2015 release roster, as Lionsgate is pressing ahead on its planned sequel to last year's Now You See Me.
We quite enjoyed the first film, even though it didn't take much prodding at its shell of logic for it all to fall apart. Nonetheless, the bunch of magicians - played by Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco - are all expected to return, as is director Louis Letterier. That said, Eisenberg may have a scheduling problem, given his commitment to make Batman Vs Superman, whose shoot is likely to overlap.
More on Now You See Me 2 as we hear it.

In a time when sequels and reboots rule the roost, it’s somewhat gratifying to see an original film do well at the theater. One of last year’s successes was Louis Leterrier’s flashy, showbiz heist movie Now You See Me, in which Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Isla Fisher played a group of magicians who uncover the secrets to pulling off shows so incredible that they seem almost impossible.
Now You See Me was a modest success at the box office, grossing over $350 million worldwide, and Lionsgate has taken this as a sign that moviegoers are eager to see more fresh new properties and ideas.
Just kidding. A sequel to Now ...

One of the less well-known projects on horror super-producer Jason Blum’s docket is Visions, a low-budget horror thriller about expectant mother Julia (Isla Fisher), who becomes terrorized by horrific visions of a creepy hooded figure only she can see. Though that set-up probably doesn’t seem wholly unfamiliar to horror fans (see also: The Sixth Sense, The Eye, Final Destination, V/H/S/2), two recent casting reveals for Visions suddenly have me a lot more interested in the film. Anson Mount (AMC’s Hell on Wheels) and Gillian Jacobs (NBC’s Community) will both test out their horror chops with supporting roles.
Mount will portray Julia’s husband, who becomes increasingly worried about her mental state as the visions increase once the pair moves to the countryside. Meanwhile, Jacobs will take on the role of a woman who becomes fast friends with Julia. Both actors have a small amount »
