Aaliyah is getting the biopic treatment from Lifetime.

Charlize Theron Talks Being Unmarried at 38, Says It's Nice to Not Be Single

28 May 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Charlize Theron's getting candid about her love life! The "A Million Ways To Die In The West" actress covers the July issue of Esquire UK, where she opens up about being unmarried and falling for longtime friend Sean Penn. While Theron understands that a lot of women would not be thrilled to be unmarried and almost 40-years-old, she's perfectly happy with her single status.  "I’m sure some people would be like, ‘I would never want to have that life.’ I’m sure there’s a lot of aspects to my life that a lot of people wouldn’t want. Like the fact that I’m single at 38. That’s not necessarily what a lot of women want. I mean unmarried. But I’m just saying, a life is good if it’s the life that you want," she tells the mag. "I am living my life in a »

Could Wright Return To "Night Stalker"?

27 May 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Now that he and Marvel's "Ant-Man" film have gone their separate ways, many fans of beloved British filmmaker Edgar Wright have already begun wondering what he will tackle next.

One possibility that has come up today is a project he was linked to back in 2012 - Disney's cinematic reboot of the "Night Stalker" franchise.

"High Fidelity" scribe D.V. DeVincentis is penning this reimagining of the 1970s TV series about Carl Kolchak (Darren McGavin), a reporter who investigates mysterious crimes that have a supernatural or sci-fi bent.

The series was remade a few years ago with Stuart Townsend as Kolchak, but was cancelled after a few episodes. Johnny Depp and Christi Dembrowski are producing with Depp potentially starring.

The hiring of DeVincentis almost exactly two years ago was the last word we'd heard about the project, other than talk since that the script is in good shape.

Depp's schedule would be »

Viggo Mortensen on how Lord Of The Rings nearly went wrong

14 May 2014 10:41 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Viggo Mortensen chats about Lord Of The Rings, and why he's less keen on films two and three...

News

There's an interesting new interview with Viggo Mortensen that's gone live over at The Telegraph, on the eve of the release of his new film, The Two Faces Of January. And in it, he talks about his work in Peter Jackson's The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, and how things nearly didn't turn out the way they did.

Mortensen was a very late addition to the cast, replacing Stuart Townsend as Aragorn a day before filming. He took the role, apparently, because his son 'egged him on to do it', but Mortensen now says of the film that "anybody who says they knew it was going to be the success it was, I don’t think it’s really true. They didn’t have an inkling until they showed 20 minutes in Cannes, »

Anne Rice's vampire Lestat: Stephen Amell, Chris Hemsworth or Anson Mount?

14 March 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Anne Rice is bringing her famed vampire Lestat back for a new novel, "Prince Lestat." Almost immediately, this news got fans going about who should play the devilish and charming undead man. Rice herself seems to have three picks: Stephen Amell ("Arrow"), Chris Hemsworth ("Thor") and Anson Mount ("Hell on Wheels").

The author explained her choices in a Facebook post:

"I love all the Lestats you're posting on the page, the handsome actors and charmers. But let us not forget Chris Hemsworth who has Lestat's square face, cheerful eyes, and voice. And let us not forget Stephen Amell either who also greatly resembles Lestat and has the body and face of a god; and also Anson Mount who seemed at times to be Lestat prowling the frontier in 'Hell on Wheels.'"

For those who remember earlier film incarnations of Lestat -- played by Tom Cruise in "Interview with »

6 Awesome TV Shows That Totally Need Rebooting

7 February 2014 2:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Reboots, remakes, and re-imaginings have never been exclusive to films. Television has often drawn from that well, taking an old concept and rehashing it to draw in a new crowd while appealing to fans of the original. Sometimes it’s wildly successful and sometimes it falls flat on its face.

Like with film remakes, audiences often question why a network would take a beloved show and ruin it by re-imagining it to what they consider ‘hip’ —or, rather, ‘marketable.’ Audiences are still baffled as to why someone thought Stuart Townsend could fill Darren McGavin’s shoes as Kolchak in the revived Night Stalker series that was canceled after six episodes. A reboot of Charlie’s Angels suffered a similar fate with a critical and ratings failure so bad people forget they even attempted a reboot in the first place.

Then there are shows like Battlestar Galactica that prove that ‘reboot »
