Why Edward Norton Doesn't Play The Hulk Anymore, According To Edward Norton

23 October 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Edward Norton has revealed why he didn.t play The Hulk in The Avengers, and he has basically suggested that he wouldn.t have wanted to do it anyway... even if they.d asked him. Edward Norton rebooted Bruce Banner in Louis Leterrier.s The Incredible Hulk back in 2008. While not totally terrible, the movie failed to truly connect with its intended audience, only generating $263.4 million at the box office. This poor display -- as well as a number of other creative issues between Marvel Studios, Norton and Leterrier -- resulted in Mark Ruffalo taking the part of The Hulk for Joss Whedon.s 2012 monster-hit, The Avengers. Of course his success in the film means that Norton.s time as Banner has almost been entirely dismissed. But despite the way it panned out, Norton has now told NPR that he doesn.t regret starring in the film and he.s »

Edward Norton Says He Didn't Return To Play Hulk Because He Wanted More "Diversity" In His Film Roles

22 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For all their success, the one franchise character Marvel has struggled with is The Hulk. After failing with 2003 iteration "Hulk" starring Eric Bana, and directed by Ang Lee, the studio hoped the combination of Louis Leterrier and star Edward Norton could do the trick with 2008's "The Incredible Hulk." Even with Robert Downey Jr. popping his head in for a final stinger at the end, everyone pretty much pretends it didn't happen. And thus, Norton's dalliance with the Marvel-verse — a rare excursion into blockbuster land for the actor — came to an end. And it was one he looks back on reflectively. "My feeling was that I experimented and experienced what I wanted to. I really, really enjoyed it. And yet, I looked at the balance of time in life that one spends not only making those sorts of films but then especially putting them out, and the obligations that rightly come with that. »

Harry Potter Adds Real Magic To ‘Now You See Me 2′

1 October 2014 11:43 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

What better way to hype up a heist film based on magic, than by casting the most famous wizard of all, Daniel Radcliffe. Now You See Me became a box-office surprise hit last year and a sequel was planned almost instantly. It starred a group of illusionists and magicians whose grandiose shows eventually lead to crime in a ‘rob from the rich’ kind of fashion. Michael Caine, the cruel insurance man from the first film, is set to reprise his role (probably looking for revenge), and has revealed that Daniel Radcliffe will play his son. Speaking to HeyUGuys, Caine had this to say:

There’s a sequel to Now You See Me and we’re shooting in London. I shoot in December, the whole of December in London, and my son is Harry Potter. I thought it’d be funny, me and Daniel Radcliffe as father and son.

Obscure comic book movies that nearly got the greenlight

19 September 2014 2:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We have a look at some of the more obscure comic book movie ideas which nearly made it to the big screen…

We've recently been investigating the pile of nearly-made-its in the ever-growing world of cinematic comic book adaptations. You could be forgiven for thinking Hollywood will strap wads of cash to any old comic book writer who stumbles past their door, but so far we’ve written approximately 5,000 words that say otherwise.

First, we delved into DC’s chequered past and found heaps of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman projects that we’ll sadly never get to see (and some other projects we’re quite glad we’ll never have to sit through). We then did the same for Marvel, unearthing plans for a Paul McCartney Silver Surfer rock opera, James Cameron’s bizarre Spider-Man script ideas and an amazingly-cast Dazzler animation from the 1980s.

Lou Ferrigno Claims a New ‘Hulk’ Film & TV Series Are in the Works

13 September 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and now the Guardians of the Galaxy are all international movie stars, but one Marvel staple hasn’t had as much success as his comrades. That would be Bruce Banner/The Hulk, whose two solo outings have been a mixed bag in terms of critical and commercial reception. Ang Lee’s 2003 version grossed just $132.1 million in the States, while Louis Leterrier’s 2008 reboot (part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon) didn’t fare much better at $134.8 million – and it cost about $20 million more.

Those numbers are a far cry from similar genre titles, whether they come from Disney, Fox, Sony, or Warner Bros. ...

Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is sitting in the director’s chair, taking over from Louis Leterrier.

Now You See Me 2, as it’s currently known, is only currently facing down video game adaptation Uncharted on that date. »

Watch This Sexy, Tantalizing Lingerie Ad Written and Directed by Penélope Cruz

22 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When Penélope Cruz isn’t busy making out with Scientologists, palling around with Pedro Almodóvar, or being addicted to breastfeeding, she’s apparently writing and directing sexy ads for Agent Provocateur. Cruz’s flesh-baring video for the British lingerie brand features a group of models in the desert and one very helpless man. We’ll let you uncover the threadbare narrative for yourself — and we’re taking bets on whether or not the women perform an aerobics routine or actually dance. Don’t blink and miss the Cruz cameo, too. You can catch the Spanish actress in the upcoming Louis Leterrier film Grimsby with Isla Fisher and Rebel Wilson — cowritten by Sacha Baron Cohen, Phil Johnston and Peter Baynham. [via Design...

Sacha Baron Cohen kisses Rebel Wilson on set of hooligan comedy Grimsby

18 August 2014 4:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sacha Baron Cohen was pictured kissing his co-star Rebel Wilson on the set of comedy caper Grimsby in South Africa over the weekend (August 17).

The 42-year-old actor was spotted wearing an England shirt and a red and white novelty hat while sporting an uneven fringe and long sideburns, as he shot scenes in Cape Town.

The Malay quarter was transformed into a city in Chile during filming of a fictional football match between the South American country and England.

Baron Cohen and Pitch Perfect star Wilson were seen kissing tenderly on the lips, surrounded by fellow football supporters cheering and waving flags while milling around after the match.

The Louis Leterrier-directed spy spoof stars Mark Strong as a black ops agent who goes on the run with his long lost hooligan brother (Baron Cohen). The Borat star co-wrote the screenplay along with Phil Johnston and Peter Baynham.

Multi-cultural Luc Besson Takes a Bow at Locarno

7 August 2014 5:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Locarno – For decades now, Luc Besson, a director who gave French cinema a huge shot of mainstream action-traction and grandfathered – though not old himself – a new generation of Gallic action directors, has been dubbed, and sometimes dismissed in his native France, as “American.”

That, from Besson’s point-of-view, would appear to be an over-simplification.

Fresh off an $81.9 million first ten-day U.S. bow for the Universal-distribbed “Lucy,” the Luc Besson who spoke at the press conference at Locarno Fest, which “Lucy” opened on Wednesday, was a full-on supporter of the world’s new multi-culturalism in an Internet age.

Like Lionsgate-Summit “Now You See Me,” from Besson alum Louis Leterrier, or indeed “Taken” and “Taken 2,” both produced by Besson’s EuropaCorp, “Lucy” globe-trots with a modern-day ease, in location, characters, thesps and filmic influences.

Lucy, played by Scarlett Johansson, kicks off in Taipei, Taiwan, as a hard-partying American girl whose feckless b. »

The Transporter Legacy Set For 2015 Release

2 August 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

EuropaCorp’s Transporter trilogy truly marked the arrival of Jason Statham as a bona fide action star, and now the franchise is getting a reboot – albeit without Statham. However, The Transporter Legacy, as the fourth film in the series has recently been titled, may launch a new actor to action stardom.

Ed Skrein, known for playing Daario Naharis on HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, will be taking on the role of Frank Martin, who is called The Transporter because he’s the best driver and mercenary money can buy. In The Transporter Legacy, Frank meets Anna (Loan Chabanol), the leader of a group of criminals. The pair team up and attempt to take down a group of ruthless Russian human traffickers who have also kidnapped Frank’s father (to be played by “a prominent thesp”).
