Does Hugh Jackman Want to Be James Bond?

18 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier in the week, Daniel Craig opened up about his as James Bond in the new 007 adventure Spectre. After blatantly calling the iconic character a misogynistic sexist, he ruminated on the idea that this could possibly be his last go at playing the secret agent. Of course, this caused a speculation storm, with fans from all over the world chiming in on who should be the next James Bond. Idris Elba seems to be at the top of everyone's most wanted list, even after one of the book authors had to apologize for calling him 'too street' for the role. Whether or not Idris Elba would ever seriously consider playing 007, he does have some imaginary competition in one of the most famous X-Men.

Yes, Hugh Jackman, who has played indestructible Mutant Wolverine in all 7 X-Men movies, is flirting with the idea of putting on that tux. »

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl review – quirky, fluffy Ya novel adaptation

3 September 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

An affectless teenager’s life is turned around when he encounters his leukaemia-stricken neighbour

The title serves as fair notice: here’s another Sundance-approved pseudo indie reconstituted from equal parts quirk and fluff. Whatever insight resided in Jesse Andrews’ Ya novel – about an affectless teen film buff (Thomas Mann) renewed via encounters with his leukaemia-stricken neighbour (Olivia Cooke) – director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon doodles over with nerdy movie mock-ups, sensitive Eno soundscapes, and talking Hugh Jackman posters tacked to wallpaper intended, at the last, to signify personal growth.

Liev Schreiber wants to be ‘Old Man Sabretooth’ in Wolverine 3

3 September 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in July, Hugh Jackman asked fans what they’d like to see in his upcoming X-Men swansong Wolverine 3, revealing the following month that there was plenty of support for Logan’s arch-enemy Sabretooth returning to the screen.

This prompted Liev Schreiber, who portrayed the character of Victor Creed in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, to tweet “do I have to do that…” in response to Jackman, leading some fans to assume that he’d be back for the 2017 movie.

Well, appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Schreiber was asked about his tweet, and whether it meant he’ll be reuniting with Jackman for the film.

“People have surmised that from my tweet, but I wasn’t. I was really just saying is that something I have to do as I get older. Is that how I approach middle age? Like that… What I heard was… I don’t know if I’m invited, »

Liev Schreiber wants to return to X-Men as Sabretooth

3 September 2015 3:32 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Liev Schrieber says he would be up for reprising his role of Sabretooth from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Schreiber appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon earlier on this week, and commented that while he is not yet involved with the last Hugh Jackman Wolverine movie [The Wolverine 3], he may be up for it.

Well what I heard was, I mean I don’t know if I’m invited, I heard that the storyline is Old Man Logan, and when I heard that I thought ‘well, you know, there’s Old Man Logan, there could be Old Man Sabretooth.’

Hang on Liev; ‘Origins’ was only 2009 – you’re not that old dude. Schreiber’s Sabretooth was the best thing about the dire, CGI-heavy disaster that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which was directed by Gavin Hood, and I know that the fans would dig a return of his character, aka Victor Creed.

2 September 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in July, Hugh Jackman posted teaser artwork for his highly-anticipated sequel Wolverine 3, while asking fans what they would like to see in his final Wolverine movie.

Liev Schreiber appeared on last night's episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he revealed that he would like to come back for Wolverine 3, possibly as "Old Man Sabretooth."

Wolverine 3: Where there's an Old Man Logan, there's got to be an Old Man Sabretooth, right?

2 September 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Liev Schreiber has been planning a storyline for his character Sabretooth in Wolverine 3 - providing he's asked back.

Chatting to Jimmy Fallon yesterday (September 1), he said he could imagine his character and arch nemesis Wolverine as old men having a fight with their walking frames.

"Well, what I heard was... I don't know if I'm invited," said Schreiber. "But I heard that the storyline is Old Man Logan.

"And when I heard that, I thought, 'Well, you know there's Old Man Logan, there could be Old Man Sabretooth'."

Rumours about his return circled last month when the actor - who played Sabretooth in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine - responded to a tweet by Hugh Jackman.

Sir Patrick Stewart recently revealed to us that he would be back for the new film as a "different version" of Charles Xavier.

Liev Schreiber Discusses Joining Hugh Jackman In The Wolverine 3

2 September 2015 7:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hugh Jackman’s final time in the claws and muttonchops will be in James Mangold’s The Wolverine 3 – and he might just have some familiar feral company.

Recently, Jackman took to Twitter to post an image of himself in training for the role, and his Origins co-star Liev Schreiber replied in such a way that seemed to suggest he may also be returning as Victor Creed/Sabertooth. Of course, the internet pretty much decided it was a done deal after that, but fans might be in for some disappointment.

While chatting to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, the Ray Donovan actor suggested that the Tweet was misinterpreted, and that he was simply commenting on keeping up with Jackman’s exercise regime as he too approaches middle age. But, when asked if he’d be interested in reprising the role, he added the following:

Best of Late Night TV: Salma Hayek's 49th Birthday, Gary Busey's Wild DWTS Announcement

2 September 2015 12:03 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Happy birthday, Salma Hayek! "The Prophet" star was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday night, and as she was on the air it went past midnight, so it was her birthday, September 2. (We should all look that good at 49.) Salma said one time she got a great birthday present from Antonio Banderas when they were filming "Desperado." She had bonded with two monkeys, who were cut from the film, and she was devastated when they were gone. The next day was her birthday and Antonio got the monkeys for her. One of the monkeys ended up falling in love with her and created a bit of a love triangle. Great »

Liev Schreiber Talks Possibility Of Playing 'Sabretooth' In The Wolverine 3

1 September 2015 11:55 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As you've most likely heard by now, the currently untitled Wolverine sequel (which many have taken to calling The Wolverine 3) will be Australian actor Hugh Jackman's last time playing the feisty mutant. After seventeen years playing James Howlett/Logan/The Wolverine, Jackman has decided it's time to retire from the role, leaving many fans excited to see what big plans that Fox has in store for their arguably most recognisable mutant. Naturally, this has caused mass speculation, with a popular theory being that the film will be some sort of adaptation of the beloved Old Man Logan storyline by Mark Millar, and that Liev Schreiber will reprise his role as Victor Creed/Sabretooth from the disappointing X-Men Origins: Wolverine. You may also recall that, in this August just passed, Jackman tweeted a photo of himself working out for the role, with the caption "Let's do this! [Who's] with me!?", to »

50 Best Comic Book Movie Adaptations

1 September 2015 7:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

30. Lady Snowblood Part 1 and Part 2

While American comic books have struggled for legitimacy as adult entertainment for decades, their Japanese counterparts have long enjoyed acceptance as legitimate elements of mainstream culture. So while the American comic book movie only properly took off in the last fifteen years, jidaigeki adaptations of popular manga have been a staple of Japanese pulp cinema since the early 1970s. The best of these remains Lady Snowblood, director Toshiya Fujita’s two part revenge opera of a woman checking off a kill list of the gangsters who killed her family and left her for dead. Any familiarity to Kill Bill is entirely intentional, with multiple visuals, soundtrack elements and plot points lifted whole cloth by Tarantino. But even for those only familiar with the update, Fujita’s films remain feats of hard edged efficiency, actress Meiko Kaji a goddess of death in a world of opposing colors and sudden violence. »

Oscars: David Hill and Reginald Hudlin to Produce Telecast

1 September 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

David Hill and Reginald Hudlin will produce the 88th Academy Awards, to be held Feb. 28, 2016.

It’s an interesting combination of veterans who represent, respectively, the worlds of live television and the film world.

Hill was a longtime 21st Century Fox/News Corp. executive who stepped down in June to launch a production banner that focused on live TV events. Hill is known for his skill at overseeing live sports production, and was key in building Fox Sports; in recent years he’s overseen “American Idol” for the Fox network.

Hudlin is an Oscar-nominated producer for “Django Unchained,” and last year produced the Governors Awards. He has been the executive producer of the NAACP Image Awards since 2012. Hudlin was the first president of entertainment for Bet Networks from 2005-09.

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences announced the moves Tuesday, but did not indicate if this is a three-year pact. »
