Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Tom Hanks and Ron Howard to reunite for Dan Brown's Inferno

26 August 2014 10:56 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director Ron Howard's all set to direct Dan Brown's fourth book in the Da Vinci Code series, with Tom Hanks once again starring...

Renowned film director Ron Howard had a huge hit with his adaptation of the best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code back in 2006, with the thriller making more than $750m worldwide.

For a sequel, Howard turned to an earlier Dan Brown novel which first introduced intrepid (and renowned) 'symbologist' Robert Langdon - Angels & Demons. Although not quite as big a success as its predecessor (probably because fewer people had rushed out to read the book) it made almost $500m.

After a bit of a hiatus (with Howard making, among other things, the superb racing biopic Rush in the interim), we're in for a new chapter in the Langdon saga. This one's Inferno, based on the most recent book published in 2013. In it, Langdon (again played by »

Inferno Still Happening With Tom Hanks and Ron Howard; Italy Shoot Planned for April

26 August 2014 7:49 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We last reported on this over a year ago, so this update isn’t meant to break any new revelatory information as much as it is to remind you that, yes, Inferno is still happening.  The film is of course the third installment in director Ron Howard’s ongoing adaptation of Dan Brown’s hugely popular book series.  Tom Hanks is still set to reprise his role as Robert Langdon.  The book features Langdon attempting to solve a riddle once again, this time influenced by Inferno, the first part of Dante Alighieri’s 14th century epic poem, “Divine Comedy.” And now we know that the project is finally set to start shooting in Italy this April (with a script by previously reported writer David Koepp).  This means that the prior release date  of December 18, 2015 will likely be tossed out in favor of a 2016 date.  Personally, I’m not a huge fan of this series, »

'Mortdecai' Trailer: Johnny Depp Rocks a Fantastic Mustache

13 August 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In David Koepp’s spy comedy Mortdecai, Johnny Depp plays a dapper James Bond type (an art dealer by trade) whose good looks and roguish charm are his only weapons during the hunt to recover a stolen painting. He also has a “man servant” named Jock Strapp (Paul Bettany). Fine, Depp. You win this round. How can we refuse? The film is adapted from the Mortdecai Trilogy written by Kyril Bonfiglioli — who was actually an art dealer in a former life. The books have been compared to the works of P. G. Wodehouse, particularly the Jeeves-Wooster novels. The gimmick seems to fall somewhere above the outright ridiculousness of the Austin Powers series. Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany, Olivia Munn and Aubrey Plaza also star. Mortdecai hits theaters...

‘Mortdecai’ Trailer: Will This Movie Make Johnny Depp a Star Again?

13 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Is Johnny Depp a movie star anymore? He is certainly famous, but he doesn’t have the box office clout he used to. The actor consistently does well internationally, but in the States, he hasn’t opened a major release in years, at least one that wasn’t already an established brand. TranscendenceThe Lone RangerThe TouristDark Shadows and The Rum Diary all bombed here. Of course, the quality of those titles aren’t up there with his finer films, so that’s a slight hindrance. Maybe all Depp needs is simply a really good movie to win back moviegoers. Reuniting with writer/director David Koepp is a step in the right direction. The two collaborated on 2004′s Secret Window, which is an especially good Stephen King adaptation. It’s also one of the last times Depp pulled off playing an average joe. For some reason he couldn’t do the same in The Tourist and »
