But their scheme goes off the rails when they run into the daughters (sweet Rachel McAdams and sex-mad Isla Fisher) of Us treasury secretary Christopher Walken. The sheer energy of the two leads is addictive but hold the confetti; the comedy is a lot less fluffy than your average romcom. »

21 March 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

At the second annual Rebels With a Cause gala on Thursday in La, there were plenty of amazing groups getting rebellious together. Isla Fisher and her husband, Sacha Baron Cohen, had fun with Jonah Hill; Pharrell Williams's wife was mildly overshadowed by his newest hat; and Chris Pine made his first postarrest appearance with friend Anna Kendrick. However, the most exciting duo was John Stamos and Bob Saget, who had another laughter-filled Full House reunion. Elsewhere in the TV realm, January Jones showed off a bold and sweet look that is the complete opposite of her TV persona Betty Draper's style. Though, with the premiere of Mad Men's final season less than a month away, we'll be seeing her in '60s mode again in no time. View Slideshow › »

25 February 2014 1:24 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

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 »

Eva Longoria Joins Blumhouse Horror Project Visions

17 February 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

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'). »

Thomas Jane, Eva Longoria Join Horror Pics

14 February 2014 12:44 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Thomas Jane and Eva Longoria have signed on for two new projects from microbudget horror producing magnate Jason Blum.

Jane will re-team with his "The Punisher: Dirty Laundry" unauthorised Marvel short film director Phil Joanou's for "The Veil" at Universal Pictures. Filming begins in April.

"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. »

Upstanding Men Will Ferrell and Adam McKay Launch Gary Sanchez Sister Label for Female-Driven Projects

13 February 2014 12:30 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

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 »

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 HousewivesEva 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).

Eva Longoria Joins Blumhouse Horror ‘Visions’

13 February 2014 3:05 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The producers behind Paranormal Activity and Insidious are back with another horror pic Visions. 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.

Now You See Me 2 confirmed for September shoot

9 February 2014 10:34 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 10 Feb 2014 - 06:33

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.

‘Now You See Me’ Sequel to Begin Production in September

7 February 2014 11:27 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

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 ...
