This Hulk Character Will Undergo Major Changes In Captain America: Civil War

24 June 2015 6:48 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We haven't seen General Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in quite a long time, but that streak will end next year when he appears in Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: Civil War. But if you're expecting to see the same old General Ross in the new movie, you may want to think again, as William Hurt has confirmed that his character has changed quite a lot since we last saw him in Louis Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk. It was during a recent interview with IGN that the actor made this revelation, currently out promoting his new AMC sci-fi series Humans. Discussing how his role in Captain America: Civil War, Hurt drew comparisons between the character he played in The Incredible Hulk and the character he's playing now. In the 2008 film, he says that he was playing a guy with an ego as big "as »

Jaume Collet-Serra Now Circling In The Deep

24 June 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While it looked back in March like Now You See Me’s Louis Leterrier would be diving into shark survival thriller In The Deep, it would seem he’s decided to stay on dry land for now. Instead, Deadline reports that Non-Stop/ Run All Night man Jaume Collet-Serra is interested in dipping his toes in the briny stuff instead. Anthony Jaswinski’s script sparked a lot of interest from the studios last autumn, and Sony was quick to snap it up. The fictional tale finds a surfer attacked by a shark at a lonely sea spot who ends up bleeding and marooned on a buoy in the ocean. Her main problem, besides the blood loss? The hungry creature is still gliding through the water around her, cutting her off from help. Producers Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem of freshly-formed Weimaraner Republic Pictures are behind the project they’re calling “127 Hours meets Jaws”.Collet-Serra, »

24 June 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jaume Collet-Serra ("Unknown," "Non-Stop") is circling to direct "In The Deep" for Sony Pictures.

Anthony Jaswinski penned the Black List script which follows a young female surfer who is attacked by a shark and ends up stranded on a buoy twenty yards offshore of an isolated beach.

As the shark continues to circle her, she attempts to find a way back before dying from her injuries. Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem will produce.

The Hulk: why there hasn't been a new standalone film

22 June 2015 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rights issues are one part of a matrix of issues stopping Marvel pressing ahead with a standalone Mark Ruffalo-headlined Hulk film.

A few months ago, Mark Ruffalo hinted at a potential rights issue that's stopping Marvel pressing ahead with a standalone Hulk movie. He said that a Hulk movie was "still Universal's property", arguing "that's a big impediment" to moving ahead with a new, standalone Hulk movie. Now we have a little bit more detail.

Before the Marvel cinematic universe came about, Universal hired Ang Lee to make a sorely-underappreciated Hulk film, that starred Eric Bana. The movie did decent business in 2003, but hardly won too many people over. As such, Marvel pressed the reboot button for 2008's The Incredible Hulk, that saw Louis Leterrier direct Edward Norton in the role. Universal distributed that film. although it was a Marvel Studios production.

Since then, the role of the Hulk »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one).

Eli Roth in Talks to Direct Giant Shark Movie ‘Meg’ for Warner Bros.

16 June 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Eli Roth is in talks to direct the giant shark movie “Meg” for Warner Bros., an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap. Warner Bros. executives smelled blood in the water when Sony’s shark movie “In the Deep” lost director Louis Leterrier, and moved quickly to resurrect “Meg,” which is a project that has been in development for more than a decade around Hollywood. At one point, noted film blogger Nick Nunziata was involved as a producer, though that incarnation of the project never quite came together. Dean Georgaris adapted the novel by Steve Alten, which follows two men who. »

Leterrier Drops Out Of "In The Deep"

4 June 2015 7:24 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Now You See Me" and "The Incredible Hulk" director Louis Leterrier has dropped out of the shark thriller "In the Deep" at Sony Pictures due to scheduling conflicts.

Anthony Jaswinski penned the Black List script which follows a female surfer who is attacked by a shark and ends up stranded on a buoy twenty yards offshore.

As the shark continues to circle her, she attempts to find a way back before dying from her injuries.

Leterrier’s exit is said to be related to a budget reduction on the film along with "other key creative elements" that were changed during development.

There's no hard feelings on Leterrier's part it seems as Sony will release his Sacha Baron Cohen spy comedy "Grimsby" later this year.

Sony’s Shark Movie ‘In the Deep’ Loses Director Louis Leterrier (Exclusive)

3 June 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Now You See Me” director Louis Leterrier has exited Sony’s shark attack movie “In the Deep,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap. Leterrier signed on to direct “In the Deep” back when Michael De Luca was co-president of production at Columbia Pictures. His exit stems from the recent regime change at Sony and the fact that the budget for “In the Deep” was recently reduced, while other key creative elements changed during development. According to insiders, it was no longer the film Leterrier has signed up for. A representative for Sony did not immediately respond to a request. »

Now You See Me 3 already in the works

24 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Now You See Me 2 isn't due until next year - but plans are afoot for Now You See Me 3...

Lionsgate has high hopes for its 2016 sequel, Now You See Me 2, which it hopes will build on the $350m gross for 2013's surprise hit. The sequel has added Daniel Radcliffe to its cast (which also includes returnees Jesse Eisenberg, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco), although Isla Fisher's pregnancy means she's missing from episode two.

But there's a sporting chance her Now You See Me days are not over. Lionsgate boss Jon Feltheimer has revealed that the firm is already in the early planning stages for Now You See Me 3, and Fisher may well thus return in that way.

The second film, Now You See Me: The Second Act, is currently due for release in June 2016, with Jon M Chu taking over directing duties from Louis Leterrier. »

Expect More Porsha and Becky In Season 2 of 'Empire' - Ta’Rhonda Jones & Gabourey Sidibe Promoted to Series Regulars

21 April 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Empire" recurring cast mates Gabourey Sidibe and Ta’Rhonda Jones, who play assistants Becky and Porsha, to Lucious and Cookie Lyon respectively, have been promoted to series regulars on the Fox TV ratings smash. Both promotions will take effect during the series' upcoming second season, which will likely return mid-season, next year, as it did this year. What might this mean for both characters/actresses? Obviously more screen time to start; although your guess is as good as mine in terms of what it could mean in terms of their individual narratives, and overall contributions to the main family story. Sidibe is currently filming Louis Leterrier's comedy "Grimsby," starring Rebel Wilson; Jones most recently appeared in an episode of NBC's "Chicago P.D."

Marvel movies ranked from worst to best: Iron Man to Guardians of the Galaxy

18 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's hard to believe it now, but a decade ago the Marvel Cinematic Universe was merely a twinkle in Kevin Feige's eye. Today, McU offerings are blockbuster staples, with the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more providing film fans with thundering entertainment and a connected universe culminating in the Avengers movies.

With Age of Ultron on the horizon, we've gone back through the 10 Marvel films to-date to rank them all from worst to best. Read on to find out our verdict, then join the discussion in the comments below.

10. Iron Man 2 (2010)

If Iron Man was a savvy exercise in kick-starting a shared cinematic universe, then its sequel brought everything crashing back down with a sharp, painful thud. Overstuffed with new characters, multiple plot strands and far-too-much in the way of Avengers set-up, Iron Man 2 is a step down from its predecessor in practically every way. »

Why Marvel Studios Can’t Make a Hulk Stand-Alone Movie

14 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

For the last thirty years, no one seemed to give a shit about a movie adaptation of The Incredible Hulk. Universal made two attempts to bring the character to the big screen, once in 2003 with director Ang Lee and star Eric Bana and later in 2008 with director Louis Leterrier and star Edward Norton. Both films […]

Movie Review – Fast & Furious 7 (2015)

5 April 2015 5:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fast & Furious 7, 2015.

Directed by James Wan.

Starring Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Lucas Black, Jordana Brewster, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Ronda Rousey, Tony Jaa, Nathalie Emmanuel, John Brotherton and Djimon Hounsou.

Synopsis:

Deckard Shaw seeks revenge against Dominic Toretto and his family for his comatose brother.

There’s one line in Furious 7 which epitomises this film and this series as a whole; it’s not the endlessly shoehorned-in mentions of ‘family’ and being ‘bros’ but a line from five time Academy Award nominee Ludacris who utters the words “I can’t watch this anymore”.

My sentiments exactly.

This series, with the exception of Fast Five – which is now clearly an anomaly or sheer fluke – is the antithesis of what I look for from blockbuster action films, but my threshold is quite fair. A film like this needs to have at least one »

Sacha Baron Cohen returns to Freddie Mercury biopic to star and direct

27 March 2015 4:21 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sacha Baron Cohen has rejoined the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic.

The comedian, who previously exited the project after reportedly falling out with the remaining members of Queen, will now help to write, produce and direct the movie, as well as taking the lead role.

Music Week reports that the band's manager of 40 years, Jim Beach, announced Baron Cohen's re-appointment at the Artist and Manager Awards 2015 last night (March 26).

Skyfall actor Ben Whishaw had been singled out by Queen drummer Roger Taylor as a preferred replacement for Baron Cohen back in 2013.

The band also expressed concerns that the comedian's involvement would turn the project, based on the late singer's life, into "a joke".

Sacha Baron Cohen can next be seen in the Louis Leterrier-directed spy spoof Grimsby.

The comedy, which also stars Rebel Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Isla Fisher and Annabelle Wallis, will be released on July »

Louis Leterrier To Direct ‘In The Deep’

25 March 2015 12:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Louis Leterrier is in talks to direct new shark flick, In The Deep.

The Transporter and The Incredible Hulk (2008) director is circling this shark’s tale about, well, you guessed it really. Anthony Jaswinski’s script follows a surfer stuck on a reef after a shark attack, struggling to find her way back to the shore and avoid her fishy friend. However, unlike more two-dimensional killer shark features (Sharknado anyone?), In The Deep promises to explore the mind of its protagonist.

Of course, comparisons to Jaws will abound, but we’ll have to wait and see whether this new project will live up to Quint’s Indianapolis monologue.

Sony Sets Its Sights On Louis Leterrier For In The Deep

24 March 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, since sharks have apparently migrated to form weather patterns in the Sharknado franchise, along comes an action-thriller that looks set to put the toothsome terrors right back where they can scare us the most – between us and the shoreline. Such is the very tight premise of In The Deep, which Sony is apparently now courting director Louis Leterrier for.

The script for In The Deep comes with buzz already attached, as it landed squarely on both the 2014 Black List (the best unproduced scripts), and the 2014 Blood List (the best unproduced horror scripts), before being snapped up by Sony. It comes from screenwriter Anthony Jaswinski (Vanishing On 7th Street), and centres on the plight of a twenty-something woman who seeks to ease the pain of mourning her mother by surfing on an isolated beach.

Shark Thriller 'In the Deep' Gets Director Louis Leterrier

23 March 2015 9:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Louis Leterrier is in talks to direct the shark attack thriller In the Deep for Sony Pictures. The script by Anthony Jaswinski (Vanishing on 7th Street) sparked a heated bidding war last September, in which Sony beat out Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox. The script landed on the 2014 Black List as one of the top unproduced screenplays of the year.

The story follows a young girl, mourning the recent loss of her mother, who goes surfing on a remote beach. After being attacked by a shark, she finds herself stranded on a buoy, 20 yards off shore, with this massive great white shark standing in her way between the buoy and the beach. She must find a way back to shore before succumbing to her injuries. The script has been described as a cross between 127 Hours, Gravity and the shark classic Jaws.

Louis Leterrier To Direct In The Deep

23 March 2015 6:46 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Quint said it best in Jaws: "You know the thing about a shark, he's got lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye.” Anyone answering that description should form an orderly queue outside Louis Leterrier’s door. The Now You See Me and The Incredible Hulk director is in talks with Sony to take charge of shark survival thriller In The Deep.Based on a coveted Black List script by fast-emerging screenwriter Anthony Jaswinski, whose sci-fi spec script Variant recently went the way of Warner Bros., In The Deep follows a single surfer attacked by a Great White Shark and marooned on a reef, bleeding and in dire need of medical attention. The wrinkle? That big toothy fish is merrily swimming about between her and help.Producers Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem of newly-formed Weimaraner Republic Pictures are steering a project that’s billed inevitably as “127 Hours meets Jaws”.
