James Badge Dale Busts Ghosts for Spectral

19 February 2014 7:30 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

World War Z actor James Badge Dale isn't ready to give up the undead just yet as he's going from fighting zombies to fighting ghosts in Legendary Pictures' new horror flick Spectral.

According to The Wrap, Badge Dale is in negotiations to star in the film, which will be directed by Nic Matthieu. The original treatment, which was described as a supernatural Black Hawk Down, was purchased from Ian Fried, though George Nolfi wrote the script with an assist from rewriter John Gatins.

The premise of the project is centered on a modern-day, militaristic, and gritty approach to fighting the supernatural. Sources say the pitch, which sold for six figures, has been described as a darker and more serious take on a Ghostbusters-like story, with a plot that revolves around a special ops group formed to bring down evil ghosts that have taken over Manhattan.

Extended Super Bowl TV Spot for Need for Speed

2 February 2014 3:59 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Little more than a month separates us from Aaron Paul’s return, and those missing their dose of seeing Jesse Pinkman on the small screen should take comfort in the fact that what we’ve seen of Paul in DreamWorks’ upcoming Need for Speed has looked awesome.

The first trailer launched back in September, sweeping aside any concerns you might have had about how good a Need for Speed adaptation would be. That was soon followed up by a new trailer towards the end of the year, and now the studio has launched the latest footage from the upcoming blockbuster at the Super Bowl to great effect.

An exciting return to the great car-culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when authenticity brought a new level of intensity to the action, “Need for Speed” taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing.

Check Out Super Bad Ass Cars in New Featurette for 'Need for Speed'

21 January 2014 5:21 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've seen Aaron Paul go to driving school for the forthcoming racing thriller Need for Speed, and while the "Breaking Bad" star will certainly draw in some crowds to the video game adaptation, the real star of the film will be the bad ass, fast cars. A new featurette takes a brief closer look at some of the sleek automobiles that are being used in the film. Unfortunately, some of them (usually the cheaper made duplicates) will be absolutely wrecked in the film, which will be cringeworthy for any motorheads out there. While I'm not into racing or anything, it's hard not to appreciate just how sexy and cool these cars are from the film. Watch it! Here's the new featurette on the cars from Need for Speed from the film's YouTube channel: Need for Speed is directed by stuntman turned director Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) and written by »

Aaron Paul Promises Adrenaline-Fuelled Action in New Featurette for Need for Speed

8 January 2014 1:18 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Up until just a few months ago, you might have questioned how well a Need for Speed movie would work. But when the first trailer hit, very much earning its place as one of our top 25 trailers of 2013, I think it went a long way to persuade people this was going to be something worth watching.

Aaron Paul makes his anticipated return to feature territory following the conclusion of Breaking Bad last year. And in this new featurette for the blockbuster adaptation, via Yahoo Movies, he promises two hours of adrenaline-pumping madness.

An exciting return to the great car-culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when authenticity brought a new level of intensity to the action, “Need for Speed” taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing.

Check Out the 'Need for Speed' Stunt Driving School with Aaron Paul

8 January 2014 12:10 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Even though the most recent trailer for Need for Speed makes it look like a hokey, racing, action thriller, we're still pretty intrigued to see what director Scott Waugh does with all the practical stunt driving and crashes. Now with a small taste of what Aaron Paul did to prepare for his role behind the wheel of some super fast vehicles, we have a short featurette looking at stunt driving school. Paul doesn't do anything too crazy, but it's cool to see that he learned how to drift at higher speeds and actually took the time to do some of his own stunt work in the car. We'll have to see how the rest of the stunts play out in theaters in March. Here's the stunt driving featurette with Aaron Paul for Need for Speed from IGN: Need for Speed is directed by stuntman turned director Scott Waugh (Act of Valor »
