Fugly! Is Not Great But It Knows What to Do with John Leguizamo

4 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

John Leguizamo's uneven body of film work has never been as satisfying as his stage monologues, the medium in which he seems the most comfortable in his own skin. Both of his career tracks are set in sharp relief in the not-terribly-awesome Fugly!, the life story of C-list actor Jesse (Leguizamo). Jesse's YouTube video blog serves as the film's framing device, through which he relates his biography and the rhythmic sine-wave of his romantic life, as he meets, loses, remeets, reloses, and regains Lara (Radha Mitchell), his soul mate or whatever. It's a comedy that's so broad and cartoony that the occasional dramatic pivots seem diminished and ridiculous, like performing a soliloquy on a Chuck E. Cheese stage. The casting director has impeccable taste, which tends toward 1 »

New Story Details on London Has Fallen as it Enters Production

4 November 2014 1:08 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Despite having to find a new director at the last minute, Focus Features have pushed ahead (for better or for worse), and cameras have officially begun rolling on London has Fallen, a sequel to Olympus has Fallen, and the first synopsis for the film has been revealed. 

To be entirely honest, I didn't really care for Olympus Has Fallen.  It was a fun little action film, but ultimately, I didn't walk away from it wanting more.  Guess that doesn't matter, as a sequle is happening and has already started filming.  Focus Features announced the start of production today which includes the film's first synopsis and story details: 

The story begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. However, what starts out as the most protected event on Earth turns into a deadly »

London Has Fallen Gets An Official Synopsis

4 November 2014 11:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Out of the two dueling White House takeover pics that vied for box office dominance in 2013, it’s safe to say that Olympus Has Fallen emerged victorious against White House Down (though there are some, myself included, who feel that the latter film was far superior). While White House Down disappointed at the box office, Olympus Has Fallen made more on a smaller budget and certainly did well enough to warrant a sequel, which kicked off production in London today.

Rather obviously titled London Has Fallen, the follow-up reunites stars Aaron Eckhart, Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett and Melissa Leo. This time around, Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Butler) and President of the United States Benjamin Asher (Eckhart) find themselves battling a terrorist threat in London.

Check out the official press release, which includes an updated synopsis for the pic. Then let us know, will you be lining up »

Filming Begins on London Has Fallen Starring Gerard Butler; First Synopsis Revealed

4 November 2014 10:31 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I'm still bitter that when it came to last year's "Battle of the Die Hard-in-the-White House" movies, the crown went to Olympus Has Fallen over the vastly superior White House Down.  But so it goes, and we will be treated to yet another installment of Gerard Butler's Secret Service Agent Mike Banning taking down baddies.  Millennium Films has sent out a press release announcing that filming has commenced on London Has Fallen, which sees Banning accompanying the U.S. President (Aaron Eckhart) and Speaker of the House (Morgan Freeman) to attend the funeral of the British prime minister.  The press release also includes the first official plot synopsis, and this is my favorite part: "a deadly plot to kill the world's most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future."  All those unknown landmarks?  Totally safe. Hit the jump for the press release. »

‘London Has Fallen’ Gets Babak Najafi As Director

29 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

London Has Fallen is the surprise sequel to the surprise hit Olympus Has Fallen, which managed to beat the similarly themed White House Down at the box office, despite that film taking on stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx. However, it hasn’t been a smooth road for London Has Fallen, with original director Antoine Fuqua unable to continue the series due to post-production work on The Equalizer, and then Fredrik Bond leaving the project just 4 weeks before principal photography was due to start. Now it looks as though Focus Features has found their man in the form of Swedish director Babak Najafi, the man who gave us Easy Money II: Hard To Kill.

Set in London (obviously), the film sees world leaders attend the funeral of the British Prime Minister. This is obviously the perfect time for nefarious evildoers to attempt murders and badness. Enter Gerard Butler as the head of the secret service, »

London Has Fallen May Enlist Babak Najafi

29 September 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As unlikely as it may seem (or maybe not, when you consider the surprisingly high box office receipts), Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart’s White House takeover pic Olympus Has Fallen will be getting an equally ludicrous, action-packed sequel with the upcoming London Has Fallen. And despite Olympus helmer Antoine Fuqua and Charlie Countryman filmmaker Fredrik Bond both backing away from the project over its creative direction, Millenium Films isn’t giving up. Now, we’re hearing that Scandinavian director Babak Najafi is being eyed to take the reins.

Though he’s hardly a household name, Najafi has a solid resume and is best known for directing Joel Kinnaman in another sequel, Easy Money II: Hard to Kill. He has also helmed episodes of the action-packed Cinemax series Banshee and made his debut on the acclaimed drama Sebbe. According to Deadline, Najafi is the favorite to helm London Has Fallen, »

'London Has Fallen' Gets Director Babak Najafi

28 September 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that Fredrik Bond parted ways with the upcoming Olympus Has Fallen sequel London Has Fallen due to creative differences. Today, Millennium has announced that Easy Money: Hard to Kill director Babak Najafi is close to making a deal to take the director's seat.

The sequel is set in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the Western world. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world's most powerful leaders and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable secret service head, and an English Mi-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.

The project will begin shooting next month with stars Morgan Freeman, »
