True Blood's Ryan Kwanten Is Totally Welcome to Help Us Move

3 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Ryan Kwanten went shirtless while moving some furniture during a visit with his parents in Sydney, Australia, on Saturday. The True Blood hunk prepared for a day of lounging in the sun by rearranging a few chairs on the lawn, and naturally, his shirt just got in the way. Clearly, Ryan hasn't given up his workout routine since his role on the HBO show ended back in August; True Blood ended its seven-season run over the Summer, but not before Ryan's character Jason engaged in a supersteamy sex scene with Eric Northman, played by Alexander Skarsgard. Not long after the scene aired, we spotted Ryan flaunting his flawless physique on the beach in Malibu, CA, a moment that unsurprisingly landed him in the No. 4 spot of our 2014 Popsugar Shirtless Bracket. Keep reading to see why Ryan is welcome to help us out next time we move. »

'Mystery Road' Blu-ray Featurette with Ryan Kwanten | Exclusive

14 October 2014 3:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ryan Kwanten explains what drew him to writer-director Ivan Sen's story in our exclusive featurette for Mystery Road, which is available on Blu-ray and DVD today through Well Go USA.

The story centers on indigenous cowboy detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen), returning to his outback hometown to solve the murder of a teenage girl, whose body is found under the highway trucking route. Alienated from both the white-dominated police force and his own community, including his teenage daughter (now connected to the murdered girl), Jay stands alone in his determination to fight back - for his town, and his people.

Watch as Ryan Kwanten, who plays Pete, a kangaroo hunter implicated in the murder, explains how the script was quite the hot commodity around town, and how he was drawn to the character and Ivan Sen's writing, before picking up Mystery Road on Blu-ray and DVD.

Mystery Road was released October 14th, »

‘Judge Dredd’-Based Series ‘Dark Judges’ Headed Online

8 October 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

As with most cult films, Dredd didn’t do well at the box office in 2012. But because dedicated fans wanted more, the film’s executive producer Adi Shankar has made a miniseries based on the Dredd universe called Dark Judges, and it will be debuting online in October 2014. In an exclusive with TheWrap, Shankar revealed the 7-part miniseries will be available for free online later this month (it’s yet to be revealed exactly where the series will be hosted). For over two years, Shankar has been working on the Dredd-based project, which he initially called a “short film” in a 2013 Ama on Reddit. On September 28, he released a video for the 2nd annual Day of Dredd, thanking the aficionados of his feature-length film and saying “they turned it into a success.” Dark Judges will join two other shorts Shankar has produced related to DC Comics characters as part of his Bootleg Universe. »

"Dredd" Web Series Spin-Off This Month

7 October 2014 3:36 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Still keen on the idea of a sequel to 2012's "Dredd"? You may get it, but not in the way you expect.

The Wrap reports that executive producer Adi Shankar has been at work on creating a top-secret "Dredd" spin-off online web series which is due to be released online for free later this month.

The seven-part mini-series, which has been in the works over the past two years, centers on the Dark Judges of Dredd lore - a group of law keepers from an alternate dimension known for their viciousness as they considered all living individuals criminals and thus punishable by brutal death.

The project itself has been done "off-the-grid," much like Shankar's two shorts "Punisher: Dirty Laundry" starring Thomas Jane and "Venom: Truth in Journalism" starring Ryan Kwanten. »

Seven-part Dredd mini-series “Dark Judges” coming soon

7 October 2014 12:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fans who have been clamouring for a sequel to 2012’s Dredd might still be waiting for the good news, even with the #DayofDredd campaign doing well and Karl Urban’s recent talk of “development”. While we wait to hear of the next update, an online Dredd mini-series has been announced. But before you get too excited, it’s more a spin-off.

Dredd producer Adi Shankar has revealed that he has been working on a spin-off mini-series based on the Dark Judges. The series is set to start later this month and has been developed in complete secret. Best of all, the series will be shown for free!

Shankar told TheWrap about the project, saying it was going to be part of his “Bootleg Universe”, which has also included Thomas Jane reprising his role as Frank Castle in The Punisher: Dirty Laundry , and Venom: Truth in Journalism, which starred Ryan Kwanten as Eddie Brock. »

'Dredd' Producer Will Launch 'Dark Judges' Miniseries Online

6 October 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While fans still hold on to hope that a sequel to Dredd 3D will happen some day, producer Adi Shankar is giving fans a spinoff miniseries that will debut online for free later this month.

The seven-part mini-series will center on the Dark Judges from the original 2000Ad comic books, characters which Dredd 3D writer Alex Garland previously revealed would be the focus of a movie sequel, if it were to ever happen. The Dark Judges include Judge Death, Judge Fire, Judge Fear and Judge Mortis, who frequently clashed with Dredd and Cassandra Anderson in the comic book.

The mini-series won't be officially connected to the movie, but it is a part of Adi Shankar's Bootleg Universe, which includes the short films The Punsher: Dirty Laundry starring Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman, and Venom: Truth in Journalism, which featured Ryan Kwanten as Spider-Man's nemesis Eddie Brock/Venom.

Dredd Resurrected in Seven Part Miniseries From Producer Adi Shankar

6 October 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I loved Dredd so much when it came out two years ago that I was fairly disheartened when it failed to connect with a massive audience.  I rarely approach celebrities in random situations, but the one recent exception was to tell Karl Urban how much I loved that movie.  So it's good to hear that we'll be getting a version of Dredd fairly soon, although it's not the cinematic sequel that some of us have been clamoring for. Instead, we're getting a seven part miniseries from producer Adi Shankar that will be released next month for free.  There's no word on if Karl Urban or Olivia Thirlby will be participating (though Thomas Jane came back for Dirty Laundry so I suppose it's a possibility) but I guess we'll all find out soon enough.  Hit the jump for more on the Dredd miniseries. Shankar has been working on this project in secret for almost two years. »

Dredd fans, it is time to get excited. While it may not be the theatrical sequel you wanted, we are getting more adventures in the same rebooted universe that the Karl Urban action flick took place in. Dredd producer Adi Shankar has been developing a new mini-series based on the Dark Judges and it is very close to seeing the light of day. Part of the same Bootleg Universe as the Thomas Jane short "Dirty Laundry" and the Venom short starring True Blood's Ryan Kwanten, "Dark »

Reach Me Trailer and Poster Starring Sylvester Stallone, Terry Crews, Thomas Jane, and the Rest of the 323 Area Code

24 September 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Wow.  Fifteen years after Paul Thomas Anderson's valley opus Magnolia, we get the Millenium Entertainment take on Altman-esque sprawl with Reach Me.  This film looks a bit out of its mind, but maybe it's in the service of some kind of mad genius.  All I know is it doesn't look boring, even though it seems to be in search of a consistent tone (it oscillates wildly between serious pathos and comic relief). I will indeed be seeing it. Hit the jump for the Reach Me trailer and poster.  The film was directed by John Herzfeld and stars Sylvester StalloneTom BerengerKevin Connolly,  Danny Trejo, Kyra SedgwickNellyCary ElwesThomas JaneTerry Crews, Danny Aiello, Kelsey Grammer, Lauren Cohan, Ryan Kwanten, as well as Tom Sizemore.

Sylvester Stallone And Tom Berenger Seek Motivation In Reach Me Trailer

24 September 2014 3:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s often times when you hear the mention of a particular filmmaker, and immediately recoil, as if the actual words have caused an indelible stain on your very soul. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that’s John Herzfield, because I quite enjoyed his 1996 ensemble caper, 2 Days In The Valley. But those with a more discerning and high cultural palette may not be interested to know, what has he been up to recently?

Reach Me is his latest affair with a starry cast – but has he learned from mistakes past? It’s hard to gauge his efficacy as a filmmaker from a brief trailer, so I’m gonna give him the benefit of the doubt. The basic premise concerns a large cast of characters, who all come into contact with a motivating self-help book called Reach Me. Penned by a reclusive author (Tom Berenger), the tome »

Watch: New Trailer For Inspirational Drama 'Reach Me' Starring Sylvester Stallone And Tom Berenger

24 September 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Guys, Sylvester Stallone is ready to touch your heart....again (don't forget about "Rocky"). He's just one of many actors in the crowdfunded "Reach Me," an inspirational drama about confronting your fears and becoming a better, more positive person. We just wish this trailer were more, uh, inspiring.... The particularly ragtag cast of Tom Berenger, Kevin Connolly, Kyra Sedgwick, Nelly, Cary Elwes, Thomas Jane, Terry Crews, Danny Aiello, Kelsey Grammer, Lauren Cohan, Ryan Kwanten and Tom Sizemore (wowsers) star in this thing about a book, written by a mysterious man, that suddenly goes viral and changes the lives of a bunch of a people who have problems. So, "The Secret: The Movie"? John Herzfeld ("15 Minutes," "2 Days In The Valley") wrote and directed this, and its his first feature in seven years. "Reach Me" arrives on VOD and in limited release on November 21st. Watch below.  »
