Q&A: Harlan Coben Chats About ‘No Second Chance’ And Career Switch

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While at Mipcom to present his first TV show, “No Second Chance,” popular American crime novelist Harlan Coben sat with Variety to discuss the new direction that his career is taking. The writer is back in France for “No Second Chance,” almost a decade after teaming with Guillaume Canet on the French adaptation of his book “Tell No One,” which turned out to be a hit in Gaul and abroad. And this year, Coben boasts a slate of TV projects in France and in the U.K., as well as three Hollywood movies based on his books – “Six Years,” “Missing Me” and the English-language redo of “Tell No One” — in development.  Commissioned by French commercial network TF1, “No Second Chance” is an action/thriller mini-series that will be directed by Francois Velle (“Bones”) with Alexandra Lamy (“Never On The First Night”), Pascal Elbe (“The Other Son”) and Hippolyte Girardot (“The Girl King »

Quicksilver returning in X-Men: Apocalypse

8 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Evan Peters will be reprising the role of Quicksilver in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse...

Well, this'll cheer Marvel up. It's little secret that there was a bit of behind the scenes unhappiness when it was revealed that Bryan Singer was bringing the character of Quicksilver into X-Men: Days Of Future Past. After all, Marvel's also using the character in next year's Avengers: Age Of Ultron. We're going to have two slightly different takes on Quicksilver in two different film franchises.

Still, lots of us went to see X-Men: Days Of Future Past over the summer, and lots of us walked away thinking that Evan Peters' take on the character was one of the absolute highlights of the film.

And he must have gone down well, becase it's now been revealed that Peters will be reprising the role of Quicksilver in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse.

Bryan Singer is back to direct the next X-Men film, »

Quicksilver Confirmed For X-Men: Apocalypse, Solo Film Possible As Well

13 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After knocking it out of the park this summer with X-Men: Days of Future Past, all eyes are on director Bryan Singer, who has a lot to live up to with the 2016 sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse. Described as a sort of 1980’s disaster film, Apocalypse will conclude the First Class trilogy and, by all accounts, sounds like the biggest X-Men film yet.

One easy way Singer can win some immediate fan goodwill is by bringing back Evan Peters as Quicksilver, the headphone-wearing speedster who stole the show in Days of Future Past despite some extremely negative reactions to early marketing material. We’ve heard rumors that Peters would appear in Apocalypse, but now it’s been made official thanks to former stuntman Brian Smrz, who served as second unit director on Dofp and was responsible for much of Quicksilver’s jaw-dropping scene in the Pentagon kitchen.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Will Include Quicksilver; Spinoff Is Possible

15 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With X-Men: Days of Future Past merging the all-star casts of both the original X-Men franchise and X-Men: First Class, many were surprised that the biggest scene-stealer was a brand new character, Evan Peters' Quicksilver. We reported earlier this month that the character may be utilized in a potential X-Men TV series, but now we have word that he will return in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Newsarama recently spoke with X-Men: Days of Future Past second unit director Brian Smrz, who revealed he will start storyboarding the film this year, while teasing that there will be another Quicksilver scene.

"They want me to start pretty soon, on the storyboarding and stuff. I'll be working on the next X-Men for the next month or so part-time, and by the end of the year it'll be full-time. Well, there will be another Quicksilver scene, which I'm looking forward to; that'll be fun. Other than that, »

Kelly Ripa Convinces Hugh Jackman to Strip on Live TV—Watch Now!

16 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Take. It. Off.  Those were the words running through our minds when Hugh Jackman appeared on Live! With Kelly and Michael this morning, where co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan managed to convince the Wolverine hunk to strip down.  Unfortunately, this is a morning show, so the segment was rather G-rated, but hey, we'll take any excuse for a peek at the A-lister's abs.  While playing a game called "Hugh In or Hugh Out," Ripa explained, "We're going to ask you questions and you will answer them truthfully. For each incorrect answer, you will have to remove one article of clothing," causing the audience to erupt into »

Chris Rock and Julia Louis-Dreyfus Turned Down the Offer to Host This Year’s Oscars

17 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It was announced last week that the excellent Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting this coming February's Oscar ceremony, but it turns out that Nph wasn’t the Academy’s first choice.  THR reports that producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron—who have produced the last two ceremonies in a row—first “begged” Ellen Degeneres to return as Oscar for this year’s ceremony.  She firmly declined the offer, and then they next approached Chris Rock, who hosted in 2005.  He turned down the offer as well, and so Zadan and Meron then went to Julia Louis-Dreyfus who, shocker, said “no”.  They then finally landed on Harris, who graciously agreed to take on the gig.  More after the jump. Hosting the Oscars is essentially a no-win scenario. You have to be able to balance the humor and entertainment with the fact that everyone in the room is incredibly nervous and just »

Woody Allen Wednesdays – Scoop and To Rome with Love

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Every Wednesday, FM writers Simon Columb and Brogan Morris write two short reviews on Woody Allen films … in the hope of watching all his films over the course of roughly 49 weeks. If you have been watching Woody’s films and want to join in, feel free to comment with short reviews yourself! Next up is Scoop and To Rome with Love

Simon Columb on Scoop

Magic, death and murder are often found in Woody Allen films. Scoop is no different, as Joe Stromble (Ian McShane), from beyond the grave, appears to reporter Sondra (Scarlett Johansson) in the middle of a magician’s (Woody Allen) show. He gives her the ‘scoop’ of a lifetime, revealing the tarot-card killer as upper-class businessman Peter Lyman (Hugh Jackman). Pretending to play Father and daughter in many scenes, Scarlett Johansson is channelling her inner Woody Allen while acting with him. This means Scoop includes two neurotic, »

Is There a Half-Naked O-Town Feud Brewing?

21 October 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's a boy band battle ... or is it?!O-Town star Erik-Michael Estrada took to Twitter on Tuesday to encourage men to get checked for testicular cancer, but he also seemed to throw some shade at former bandmate Ashley Parker Angel at the same time. "Support the cause. But what ever you do don't look at my abs. Or how low under wear is. Or my junk," he captioned his shirtless selfie. In the pic, the teen heartthrob is posing for a picture in the mirror, wearing only a low-slung pair of striped boxer briefs.  Seems innocent enough, until you see the photo Ashley also recently tweeted out (above right).Angel shared a similar shirtless snapshot last week, but he took it one step further and grabbed his bulge. "#FeelingNuts for Check One Two raising awareness for testicular cancer. Don’t forget to check yours," he captioned the pic. The #FeelingNuts »

10 Ridiculous Ways Superheroes Were Resurrected

20 October 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

DC’s writer extraordinaire Geoff Johns once said that “death in superhero comics is cyclical in its nature, and that’s for a lot of reasons, whether they are story reasons, copyright reasons, or fan reasons.” Mortality in superhero comics is such a joke that “comic book death” is used a pejorative term – any major character that gets killed off, everyone knows, which eventually come back. Nobody stays dead. Sometimes that frees people up to do awesome, inventive stories; other times, it robs what could be an emotional scene of any gravitas because, well, they’ll be resurrected in about six months, right?

The recent Death Of Wolverine came down somewhere between the two. Obviously nobody believes that Marvel’s biggest cash cow is going to remain six feet under for very long (especially when Hugh Jackman’s set to play him in yet another blockbuster X-Men film »

Tom Hardy Wanted for Villain Role in X-men: Apocalypse

20 October 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like Suicide Squad isn't the only comic book movie that Tom Hardy is up for. According to The Wrap, the British actor is also up for the role of the villain Apocalypse in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse!

At one point Hardy was rumored to be up for the role of Doctor Strange, but it seems like that ship has sailed, and he's not on it. One thing for sure is, it looks like he's going to be attached to another comic book project in the near future. This wouldn't be the first time either, as he also played Bane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises

I think Hardy would be great in both Suicide Squad and X-Men: Apocalypse. But if I had to choose to see him in one of those it would have to be as Apocalypse, because he would freakin' be awesome in that role! »

Tom Hardy wanted for X-Men: Apocalypse villain En Sabah Nur

20 October 2014 1:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hardy is reportedly being sought to play the villain in X-Men: Apocalypse.

The Dark Knight Rises star is wanted by director Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox to play En Sabah Nur, the world's first mutant who was born in Egypt around 3,000 BC.

The character, created by Louise and Walter Simonson, first appeared in X-Factor #6 and was glimpsed in the post-credits sequence for X-Men: Days of Future Past (where he was played by Brendan Pedder).

According to The Wrap, Hardy is also in the running for Warner Bros' Suicide Squad film and Marvel's Doctor Strange but won't be able to appear in all three.

X-Men: Apocalypse will see Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Evan Peters and Nicholas Hoult return for the sequel, which is due for release in May 2016.

Producer Simon Kinberg recently revealed that Apocalypse will be the final instalment of the X-Men prequel trilogy.

Quicksilver Concept Art For X-men: Days Of Future Past

19 October 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When director Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects") announced that X-Men: Days of Future Past would include 'Quicksilver' and that Evan Peters ("Kick-Ass") would play the role many people, such as myself, were skeptical. The timing of the announcement seemed especially odd since we already knew Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron had decided to use the speedy-mutant as well. But all doubt surrounding Singer's intentions were tossed out the window when audiences were blown away by the film's Pentagon scene. 'Quicksilver' stole the show as he zipped along the walls of the Pentagon's kitchen with a gleeful smile as he protected his new allies: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). Below, are designs for the character's customized stereo belt. Concept Art by Henry Fong Ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days »

Tom Hardy Wanted for 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Villain

18 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

With the number of superhero movies in the pipeline, speculation over who will play what hero and what villain won't be ending any time soon and things are no different today as The Wrap reports Tom Hardy is being sought to play "En Sabah Nur," which means "The First One" and is also the name for the titular villain in X-Men: Apocalypse, a character first introduced in 1986's "X-Factor" comics. I went into greater detail as to who this Apocalypse guy is right here as he's the blue fella you saw during the X-Men: Days of Future Past end credit sequence. To put it simply, he's the world's first mutant. Bryan Singer will return to direct X-Men: Apocalypse for a May 27, 2016 release with Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Hugh Jackman all expected to return. As for Hardy, he's also been listed as one of the actors »

Tom Hardy wanted for title role in X-Men: Apocalypse

18 October 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He’s been linked to Marvel StudiosDoctor Strange and Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad in recent days, and now The Wrap is reporting that 20th Century Fox is also courting Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) for one of its own superhero projects, with the site claiming that the British actor is wanted for the role of En Sabah Nur, a.k.a. Apocalypse, in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

Last week, director Bryan Singer revealed that casting is underway on the follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past, so you would expect the primary focus to be on finding an actor to portray the ancient mutant. However, if rumours are true, Hardy may have to make a decision between Apocalypse and Suicide Squad, given that they’re both due for release in 2016 (as is Doctor Strange, but he’s one of several thousand names linked to that particular role).
