Former Bros pop star to direct and act in action thriller Your Move, which begins production in March
Goss, 45, has forged a career as an actor in fantasy fare such as 2002's Blade 2 and 2008's Hellboy: The Golden Army (both directed by Guillermo Del Toro) in recent years. He will also take the lead role in Your Move as a successful New York businessman who witnesses the brutal kidnapping of his family, who are in Mexico, during a video phone call. The character then sets out to track down his wife and child while taking revenge against the men who assaulted them.

The Bros drummer-turned-actor will also write and star in the action thriller from Triumphant Pictures and Artprod, reports Variety.
The film will centre around a successful New York businessman who, while speaking to his wife and child on Skype during their holiday in Mexico, witnesses their brutal kidnapping.
With the authorities unable to help, he embarks on a mission of rescue and revenge.
One half of '80s pop phenomenon Bros and one, well, whole of Hellboy II's big bad, Luke Goss once asked: "When will I see my name in all the papers?". Well, it's in Variety today, with news that he will be stepping behind the camera for his first directorial gig.Goss is directing Your Move from a script he also wrote. According to the trade, the story will follow a New York executive whose wife and child are off visiting her family in Mexico. While Skyping them, he witnesses their assault and abduction at the hands of some nefarious types. He launches a rescue-stroke-revenge mission when Mexico's authorities fail to provide much assistance in tracking down the missing pair. Man On Fire meets Taken, then? Sounds a lot like it, and that title suggests at least some Bryan Mills-y dialogue to induce the abducters to release their prize - »

Indie Spotlight Review: Nobody Can Cool
Nobody Can Cool is the rather impressive directorial debut from up-and-coming filmmaking duo Dpyx, Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman, who crafted a blisteringly taut and thoughtful indie crime thriller with a palpable sense of tension from start to finish. A gritty and engaging tale of deceit, violence and desperation, Nobody Can Cool is anchored by a breakout performance by Nick Principe (best known from his work in the Laid to Rest series, Madison County and »

Director: Kevin Connor,
Running Time: 168 Minutes
Extras: ‘Creating Frankenstein’ 5 Minute Making Of,
How depressing! Films from 2004 are celebrating their 10th anniversary. It’s enough to make you want to look for a way to extend life, which is probably why the first celebratory release is this adaptation of warnings against such things. Those only familiar with Frankenstein through the movies may actually be surprised to find that the majority of the book isn’t horror at all, as demonstrated by this very faithful adaptation. A Hallmark production that was screened in two parts, Frankenstein acknowledges that the title refers to the creator and not the monster, thus giving him the majority of the focus in this dramatic telling.
As it is made for TV, the budget is certainly unkind at times, »

What happens when man violates the laws of God and science? For Captain Walton (Sutherland) and the crew of a weather-beaten ship stranded in the icy sea, the answer follows their rescue of a scientist close to death, frozen in fear, and insane with dire warnings. Victor Frankenstein (Newman) has a story to tell—a story as chillingly real as the tortured howls emanating from the Arctic fog and as timeless as the need to be loved.
Made for the Hallmark Channel back in 2004, this version of Frankenstein comes from director Kevin Connor who brought the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs novels, At the Earth’s Core and The Land that Time Forgot, to the big screen in the 70s and is once again based on the classic Mary Shelley tale, only »
