Judge Dredd co-creator says, “There will be a new Dredd film…”

37 minutes ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since the ultra-violent 2012 Karl Urban headlined adaptation of Dredd hit theatres, fans everywhere have been holding their breath for a much deserved sequel. Unfortunately their hopes have been dashed several times despite highly publicised campaigns aimed at turning the studios heads.

However, there may be some shining light at the end of the tunnel as co-creator John Wagner took to Facebook to answer some fans questions.

During a conversation on whether or not a sequel could happen Wagner commented, “There will be a new Dredd film…it’s just a question of when.”

While this may sound a tad ambiguous, it’s really the first time that the creator has spoken about a new film. Alex Garland, who wrote the screenplay for Dredd and also produced, has previously admitted that another adaptation of some sort is inevitable in the near future although he won’t be involved.

“There will be a new Dredd film”, says John Wagner

4 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A Karl Urban-headlined Dredd sequel is a long shot - but Judge Dredd is still likely to return on screen, argues John Wagner.

The chances of an official, fully-fledged film sequel to 2012’s Dredd have all but been extinguished over the past years, with even a strong campaign failing to persuade anyone to stump up the necessary $40m or so to make the project happen. As such, Karl Urban’s days as Ol’ Stoney Face seem done and dusted, no matter how keen the actor is to reprise the role.

But still, just because one Dredd adventure is over, another may yet begin. And on Facebook. Judge Dredd co-creator John Wagner has suggested that more Dredd will eventually arrive on the big screen.

“There will be a new Dredd film”, he posted on Facebook, “it’s just a question of when”.

That was pretty much the same line that »

Scott Eastwood Hitches A Ride With Overdrive

1 September 2015 4:17 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Sitting in the development garage since at least 2011, action project Overdrive has hardly lived up to its name so far, generating a lot of interest without actually gaining any momentum. Producer Pierre Morel and director Antonio Negret are hoping that will change now they have The Longest Ride’s Scott Eastwood on board to star.Assuming everything comes together this time, the film, written by Wanted’s Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, focuses on two American brothers who decide to push their car-thief career into top gear by heading to France. But they end up running afoul of a much more dangerous criminal. In its long road to the screen, the film has attracted several variations of the sibling duo with Alex Pettyfer and Matthew Goode, Karl Urban and Ben Barnes and Jamie Bell and Garrett Hedlund all loosely attached at one time or another, with the film passing through »

Talented French actor Vincent Cassel has joined the cast of the untitled fifth Bourne movie. According to Variety, Cassel is set to play a villainous role in the action sequel. Sources claim the Ocean's Twelve star will be an assassin hunting down Matt Damon's elusive Jason Bourne - in the vein of characters portrayed by the likes of Clive Owen and Karl Urban in the original trilogy. Cassel joins an already impressive cast, which includes Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander, alongside franchise veterans Damon and Julia Stiles. The Bourne Supremacy/Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass is back at the helm once again as well. Damon recently claimed this sequel would be set in a "post-Snowden world", and revealed that filming starts this week in Greece. The original Bourne trilogy was immensely popular with both fans and critics alike, raking in almost $1 billion at the global box office. Comparitvely, 2012's »

Paul Greengrass Action Sequel Bourne 5 Has Found Its Villain

1 September 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With filming due to get underway later this week in Rome, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Paul Greengrass’ Bourne 5 has found its lead villain in Vincent Cassel.

Joining the likes of Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander and, following a brief spell on the sidelines while Legacy was in the ether, Matt Damon, there’s no word yet on who the esteemed French actor will be playing, though his casting is surely a major coup for Universal as it looks to get its Bourne action series back on track.

Throughout his career, Cassel has appeared in a variety of different roles on both sides of the moral compass. Chief among those is his part in the Ocean sequels, along with Darren Aronofsky’s adorned Black Swan. According to today’s report, he’ll be playing an asset, a mysterious figure who is tasked with hunting Damon’s titular agent. Across the course of the series, »

'Star Trek Beyond' Bloopers Reveal New Alien

31 August 2015 4:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Trek Beyond is currently shooting, and thus far, we've been treated to numerous behind-the-scenes videos in support of the Omaze charity initiative. The cast has used this opportunity to raise awareness for a variety of charities from set, and as co-writer and star Simon Pegg points out in this latest sneak peek, fans only have 48 hours left to donate. An added bonus, we get to see bloopers from all of the previous videos. And, a new alien is revealed!

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin and newcomer Idris Elba are all present in this latest look at the Starship Enterprise. Only this time, the gang is having a little too much fun as they flub their lines and miss their marks. If you fast forward to the 1:55 point, you'll even see the prosthetic head of an unidentified extraterrestrial who is making their debut in the rebooted franchise. »

Zachary Quinto talks Star Trek Beyond, says Spock will be paired up with Bones

27 August 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production in full swing on Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond, MTV caught up with star Zachary Quinto to ask his thoughts on new director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6), who has taken over from J.J. Abrams to helm the third instalment in the relaunched feature film series.

“Invariably there’s going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J.J.,” states Quinto. “But Justin has come in with this really interesting and confident energy that’s a little bit more reserved and a little bit quieter, but also very powerful and really sure-handed. He knows exactly what he wants this movie to look like and that’s really exciting.”

Star Trek Beyond Won't Be A Traditional Kirk-Spock Adventure

26 August 2015 1:39 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Much like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, plot details for Star Trek Beyond are still largely under wraps. Though we know the crew of the Enterprise will voyage into deep space, we don’t know what will happen to them. With the new day comes a new tidbit about the third installment of the rebooted franchise, and it looks like this one will be different than the previous installments, even if it’s only in terms of Spock and Kirk.  Star Trek and Stark Trek Into Darkness honed in on Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto’s Spock, even though most of the characters got at least some time in the spotlight. For Star Trek Beyond, however, the Vulcan won’t be spending a lot of time with his buddy, turning his attention to Karl Urban’s Dr. Leonard "Bones& »

Watch 'Star Trek Beyond' Cast's Salute to Leonard Nimoy, Win a Walk-On Role

26 August 2015 3:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

He lived long and he prospered, and Leonard Nimoy is being honored by the cast of the upcoming movie "Star Trek Beyond."

Zachary Quinto, the "new" Spock, narrated a new Omaze video for the last week of the cast's charity campaign, with the winner landing a role as an extra in "Beyond." The lucky fan will be randomly chosen from the pool of donors, and funds will be split among nine organizations chosen by cast members, including St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

Leonard Nimoy was "passionate about" St. Jude's, Zachary noted in the tribute video, which honors the late star and asks for donations in his name:

Through his legendary portrayal of Spock, he influenced countless scientists and artists, myself and the rest of the cast included. It was an honor and a privilege to know him and to call him a friend. Leonard's love for the human spirit showed in everything he did. »

"Star Trek Beyond" Follows Spock & McCoy

25 August 2015 5:35 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

While the first two films in the rebooted "Star Trek" film franchise have involved Captain Kirk and Spock as a buddy team with the rest of the crew in supporting roles, it looks like the upcoming "Star Trek Beyond" will be featuring a wider spread of interactions.

Speaking with The Telegraph, actor Zachary Quinto revealed that in this entry Spock spends most of his on screen time with Karl Urban's Dr. McCoy. Quinto says: "Those characters are so diametrically opposed that it'll be nice to see them interacting."

Quinto also spoke about the change of director from J.J. Abrams to Justin Lin, someone who is a quieter and less gregarious personality but one with a better familiarity with "Star Trek" on the whole and sounds like a vision of his own:

"Invariably there's going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J. »

Star Trek Beyond Will Pair Spock With Dr. McCoy

25 August 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Captain Kirk and Spock are pretty much inseparable in any incarnation of Star Trek.  But after two films in the new reboot series, it looks like director Justin Lin is ready to shake things up.  Zachary Quinto told the UK newspaper The Telegraph that Spock spends the most time with Karl Urban's Dr. McCoy in Star Trek Beyond, not Chris Pine's Captain Kirk.  "Those characters are so diametrically opposed that it’ll be nice to see them interacting." Quinto went into much greater detail about the change in director (J.J. Abrams departed for Star Wars: Episode VII) with MTV .   Apparently, Justin Lin brings quiet energy and a clear vision to the set.  "Invariably there’s going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J.J., but Justin has come in with this really interesting and confident energy that »

Star Trek Beyond Set Video Features An Unrecognizable Sofia Boutella

20 August 2015 5:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Thanks to a very revealing new video from the Vancouver set of Star Trek Beyond, we finally have our first look at some of the main characters in action. The footage features James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), Pavel Chekov (Anton Yelchin), Montgomery Scott (Simon Pegg) and – most interestingly – the mysterious alien character played by Kingsman: The Secret Service actress Sofia Boutella.

Though Scotty is wearing classic Starfleet gear, both Chekov and Kirk are dressed in slightly more militaristic new uniforms. Is this just for a mission, or have they been assigned to another crew for some reason?

As for Boutella’s character, we still don’t know a single thing about her (aside from the fact that she seems to be a good guy), but you may notice she does resemble those aliens that Kirk and McCoy were running from at the beginning of Star Trek Into Darkness.
