‘Death Wish’ Adds Vincent D’Onofrio and Dean Norris, Corners the “Awesome Stocky Character Actor” Market

11 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I’m still not sure if Bruce Willis is the right man to star in a remake of Death Wish. Hell, I’m still not sure if Death Wish is a movie that needs to be remade at all. And yet, I’m interested what a director like Eli Roth, a filmmaker with a penchant for getting really ugly, […]

Vincent D’Onofrio And Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris Enlist For Death Wish Remake

16 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Daredevil and Heisenberg, look away now. Deadline is reporting that the Eli Roth-directed Death Wish has enlisted Vincent D’Onofrio and Breaking Bad‘s Dean Norris.

A remake of the Charles Bronson thriller of the same name – itself an adaptation of Brian Garfield’s novel – D’Onofrio and Dean Norris will now join Bruce Willis in the overhaul, which has set up shop over at MGM and Paramount. Indeed, this two-fold casting coup is a real sign of progress for Death Wish, given the project has spent the past few years languishing on the fringes of development.

During that time, Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (Big Bad Wolves) were in line to helm Paramount’s remake before last-minute script changes forced the directing pair to bow out. Joe Carnahan (The Grey and, soon, Bad Boys For Life) also contributed to the screenplay during its formative years, before Scott Alexander »

17 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Newswire: Vincent D’Onofrio to help Bruce Willis make a wish—a Death Wish

25 August 2016 6:07 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Deadline is reporting that Vincent D’Onofrio and Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris have both signed on to the Death Wish remake. Directed by Eli Roth, the film is expected to star Bruce Willis as a sort of grizzled genie who loves to grant wishes—as long as those wishes are for death.

Okay, so that’s probably just Death Wishful thinking. Instead, the Roth-directed film will probably just be an even-more-violent retread of the old Charles Bronson vigilante splatterfests, except with Willis in the role of Paul Kersey, a mild-mannered architect-turned-architect of death. (We’ll be honest: we’re kind of addicted to ending sentences with death right now.) D’Onofrio will play Willis’ brother, while Norris plays a police detective. Going off his past track record, though, it’ll probably take Norris’ character a while—and some aggressively placed clues—for him to crack the case. But ...

Horror Channel FrightFest 2016 Review – Cell (2016)

25 August 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Cell, 2016

Directed by Tod Williams

Starring John Cusack, Samuel L. JacksonIsabelle Fuhrman, Clark Sarullo, Ethan Andrew Casto, Owen Teague, Stacy Keach

Synopsis:

When a mysterious cell phone signal causes apocalyptic chaos, an artist is determined to reunite with his young son in New England.

Although Steven King is often hailed as the greatest horror author of all-time, he’s not had the best track record of adapting his own work. While it worked wonders with Pet Cemetery, Maximum Overdrive is fantastic for all the wrong reasons and the less said about his TV version of The Shining the better. However his novels have proven time and time again to be great commodities for adaptation (Carrie, The Shining, The Mist, Children of the Corn, The Running Man, etc), and Cell had every chance of being no different.

John Cusack stars as Clay, a comic book artist who is heading back »

Frightfest 2016: ‘Cell’ review

25 August 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cell review: The adaptation of Stephen King’s 2006 novel, but should you answer the call?

Cell review by Paul Heath, August 2016.

Cell finally makes it to cinemas after what feels like forever in trying to adapt Stephen King‘s well-liked novel for the big screen. First published in 2006, various filmmakers have attempted to bring this zombie-apocalypse type story to the big screens, most notably the talented Eli Roth who was announced to be helming a film version shortly after completing work on his second Hostel movie back in 2007. That wasn’t to be, but genre filmmaker Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2), eventually bagged the job and, along with screenwriter Adam Alleca (The Last House On The Left remake), set to task on bringing King’s story to life.

The film revolves around the character of Clayton “Clay” Riddell, here played by John Cusack, an artist intent on getting to his »

Rainn Wilson to star alongside Jason Statham in shark horror-adventure Meg

19 August 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the years since NBC’s The Office ended, Rainn Wilson, who played Dwight Schrute on the long-running show, has taken on a lot of smaller roles in such indie films and TV shows as The Boy, Roadies and Adventure Time, but a new report from Deadline confirms that the Emmy-nominated actor isn’t looking to turn his back on studio movie-making either. 

Wilson has signed on to play a lead role alongside Jason Statham in New Line Cinema’s horror-adventure Meg. In the film, which centers around a prehistoric shark who surfaces off the coast of modern day China to wreck havoc, the actor will portray a tech billionaire. The character apparently “funds an underwater observation program that unwittingly unleashes the Carcharodon megalodon – a 70-foot, 40-ton prehistoric cousin of the great white.”

Based on Steve Alten’s 1997 book Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror, the movie has been in development for years, »
