Hitman: Agent 47 Featurette Introduces Rupert Friend As The Stone-Cold Assassin

30 July 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

20th Century Fox has today unveiled a new featurette for its upcoming video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47, which takes a tentative peak into the mind of the stone cold, genetically enhanced killing machine.

Stepping into the shoes of the titular one-man army is Homeland star Rupert Friend, who is on a mission to sabotage the cloning process that brought him into this world as an emotionless sharpshooter. As a result, Friend’s Agent 47 will have his proverbial crosshairs trained on Thomas Kretschmann’s Le Clerq, the chairman of a twisted organisation known as Syndicate International. In order to do so, our protagonist must track down his daughter, Katia van Dees (Hannah Ware).

Making his feature-film debut is Aleksander Bach, who will oversee the high-octane actioner for Fox. With a cast list that encompasses Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann, Dan Bakkedahl and Ciaran Hinds, Hitman: Agent 47 need not »

This colorful Heroes Reborn poster, which debuted on TVline, promises a new phenomenon is coming! Creator and show runner Tim Kring has revealed that this reboot of the popular 2006 series takes place 5 years after those original events.

Star Trek Beyond casting latest

Fast & Furious 6 and The Raid's Joe Taslim joins Justin Lin's upcoming Star Trek film...

Production continues on the next Star Trek movie adventure, Star Trek Beyond, which is currently shooting. The film reunites the core cast of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin. Justin Lin - best known for helming four Fast & Furious movies - is directing, and Simon Pegg and Doug Jung have penned the screenplay.

The main new casting addition this time around has been Idris Elba, who's playing the movie's villain. But now we learn too that martial arts actor Joe Taslim has also signed on the dotted line. He previously worked with Justin Lin on Fast & Furious 6, and also featured in The Raid. His role is said to be a "key part opposite Elba", although we know no more than that right now. »

Joe Taslim Heads For Star Trek Beyond

26 July 2015 10:03 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

You likely saw him as Jaka in The Raid, or maybe putting the hurt on our heroes as one of Luke Evans’ henchmen in Fast & Furious 6. Now Joe Taslim is headed somewhere very different, joining the cast of Star Trek Beyond. With pretty much everything about the film – beyond the presence of the Enterprise crew veterans including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin, plus new franchise faces Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella – still being kept behind a protective shield, The Hollywood Reporter offers no real details about what Taslim will be up to in the film. But the trade mag does indicate that he has a key role opposite Elba, who will be the film’s big threat. So we’d expect Kirk and co. to have some trouble with him...With a script by Pegg and Doug Jung and »

'Star Trek 3' Gets 'Fast and Furious' Martial Arts Master

24 July 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Raid: Redemption and Fast & Furious 6 star Joe Taslim is moving from the action movie genre to sci-fi, signing on for a role in Star Trek Beyond. Heat Vision Blog doesn't have any details about his character, except that it is a "key part" opposite Idris Elba, who plays a villain.

Star Trek Beyond Recruits The Raid, Fast And Furious 6 Star Joe Taslim

24 July 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For all of the talk of Star Trek Beyond placing the spotlight on frontierism and adventure – tenets considered to be fundamental to the franchise’s DNA – Paramount has no intention of chucking the baby out with the bath water, after it confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that The Raid and Fast and Furious 6 star Joe Taslim will join the ranks for Justin Lin’s upcoming sequel.

While details of Taslim’s role are scarce on the ground, THR notes that it is a “a key part opposite [Idris] Elba, who plays a villain.” Either way, given his action credentials, the addition of the Chinese-Indonesian actor can only bolster Beyond‘s line-up, and we’re excited to see how he fits into Justin Lin’s anticipated threequel.

Scripted by Doug Jung and Simon Pegg – who returns as fan-favorite Scotty – both writers have been vocal in the past about their desire to create »

Zachary Quinto Has "an Appreciation" of the Kardashians Now Thanks to Caitlyn Jenner!

23 July 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Better late than never, Zachary Quinto! The Hitman: Agent 47 has—for whatever reason—not necessarily always been the biggest fan of the Kardashians. But thanks to Caitlyn Jenner, Quinto is finally coming around! How do we know this? Well, in an interview with InStyle conducted prior to the Supreme Court's historic June 26 decision to legalize gay marriage in all 50 states, Quinto was asked if he would "move on to another cause" when marriage-equality was achieved in the United States. "The battle for acceptance, against bigoted hatred, is not yet over," he answered poignantly. "That said, I do think the gay-rights movement is evolving into a transgender-equality »

Last week, the cast of Star Trek Beyond appeared in a set video to announce their Omaze contest, where one lucky fan will win a walk-on role in the sci-fi sequel. While that lucky winner will be announced at a later date, the contest is also selecting weekly winners to become honorary "crew members," the first of which has already been chosen. To kick off the campaign's second week, stars Simon Pegg (Scotty) and his "son" Anton Yelchin (Chekov) appear in another Omaze video, where they announce the first honorary crew member, and give fans a glimpse at one of the new alien masks that will be used in the film, along with a few props.

Nothing was revealed about this alien mask or any of the other futuristic props seen in this latest sneak peek, but there will surely be more opportunities to catch a few glimpses from the set in weeks to come. »
