10 Actors Who Refused To Make Sacrifices For Movie Roles

21 January 2016 12:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

For actors, picking the right role can be the difference between rising astronomically to the heady heights of Hollywood superstardom or fizzling out on a downward spiral of obscurity. And sometimes they really don’t make the right call in these situations.

They often let personal bias get in the way and refuse to make the necessary sacrifices that could make their career represents. Some just don’t want to go to all that effort of getting into character, or fear being typecast further down the road. And then there’s those who hubristically think they’re too big for the part on offer.

Crazy, right? Well were are some of the worst instances of Hollywood A-listers refusing to make sacrifices for roles, missing out on what could have been career-defining films as a result…

Louis Leterrier attached to adapt Joe Hill’s new novel The Fireman

13 January 2016 6:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to Joe Hill’s upcoming novel The Fireman, with Louis Leterrier (The Transporter, Now You See Me) attached to direct.

According to the site, the book concerns “a worldwide pandemic of spontaneous combustion that will reduce civilization to ashes unless it can be stopped by an improbable group of heroes led by an enigmatic man known as The Fireman. It’s no simple blaze: the condition starts as an inky stripe on a bodypart, looking like a tattoo. It’s a highly contagious deadly spore that eventually causes the sufferer to burst into flames. Millions are infected; among them is a nurse who treated numerous sufferers until they eventually perished, with the hospital burned to the ground. Pregnant, she finds herself infected with the spore. Knowing infected mothers have birthed healthy babies, she too is in a race against time. »

Cheer on local talent with these potentially great UK films from 2016, including drama, comedy, action, horror, fantasy & more…

While Batman Vs Superman, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men Apocalypse and other mega franchises are expected to dominate cinemas in 2016, let’s hear it for the films below. None are sequels, few have titanic budgets, all of them are British and each of them has the potential to be great.
