In an alternate reality, there’s a Ghostbusters reboot where the familiar mantles of Bill Murray’s sarky Venkman, Dan Aykroyd’s Ray and the dearly departed Harold Ramis’s Egon were passed on to worthy successors. And in that reality, Omar from The Wire would be Winston (sorry Ernie Hudson, nobody really remembers you anyway). Which would be awesome. But we don’t live in that world, because the universe is an uncaring, harsh place.
Instead, Ghostbusters fans live in the reality where the film gets rebooted by the director of The Heat with an all-female cast. Well, almost all-female. Which is not necessarily a bad thing (especially because Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthyLeslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are hilarious), but news Michael K Williams has been cast in the film just reminds everyone of what could have been.
Chris Hemsworth’s already been cast as the new »

Production continues on Paul Feig's new take on Ghostbusters, which is being headlined by Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Kristen Wiig. The film is shooting in and around the New York area, and Feig has penned the script along with Katie Dippold.
Since the original cast was announced, we already know that Chris Hemsworth has signed up to play the new receptionist for the Ghostbusters. And now comes the news that Andy Garcia and Michael K Williams are also in the cast. Here they are...
Garcia is set to take on the role of New York's Mayor in the movie, whilst Williams is playing Hawkins, a character about which we know precisely nothing. Veep's Matt Walsh is also on board, playing Rourke. We don't know anything about Rourke either, which isn't making »
Director Paul Feig's upcoming Ghostbusters reboot has already put together a pretty great ensemble of stars - including Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, and Chris Hemsworth - but today the roster has gotten even deeper. That's because new reports have revealed that the in-production blockbuster has added four more actors to the cast. The Wrap has the scoop on these new additions, but let's break them down one-by-one, shall we? Andy Garcia was a pretty busy guy in 2014, voicing a blue bird in Rio 2, teaming with Jeremy Renner on the drama Kill The Messenger, and looking for laughs in Let's Be Cops, and now his 2016 is looking a lot more interesting thanks to his role in Ghostbusters. While the precise details of his role are being kept a secret for now, apparently he will be playing the mayor of New York City in the movie. »
Steven Spielberg big screen adaptation of Robopocalypse has been in the works for years now. The script was being developed by Spielberg and Drew Goddard based on the Daniel H. Wilson novel.

Michael Kenneth Williams ("The Wire", "Boardwalk Empire") has snatched up a pair of solid upcoming roles, the first pitting him alongside Michael Fassbender in Assassin's Creed at Fox for director Justin Kurzel. The film, adapted from the video game of the same name co-stars Marion Cotillard and Ariane Labed and centers on a bartender (Fassbender) captured by a secret corporation and sent back in time to relive the memories of his ancestors -- all of them assassins -- and retrieve ancient artifacts. There is no word on which role Williams will play in the film, but Variety says "his character has a major stake in the franchise" and will serve as a co-starring role in a sequel should the first film be successful. Always putting the cart before the horse that Hollywood. Meanwhile, Williams is one of four new names added to the cast of Paul Feig's new Ghostbusters film. »

[Update: Variety adds that Michael K. Williams is also in talks for a crucial role in Assassin's Creed, one that would see him take a co-starring position opposite Michael Fassbender in the sequel.] Filmmaker Paul Feig’s reboot Ghostbusters has been filming in Boston for a couple of weeks now, but the comedy is now adding a few more cast members. The Wrap reports that Michael K. Williams, Andy Garcia, previously rumored SNL alum Cecily Strong, and Veep standout Matt Walsh have joined the ensemble, which stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as aforementioned busters of ghosts. The most recent new cast member to be added outside the central quartet was Chris Hemsworth in a stroke of brilliant casting as the Ghostbusters’ secretary, filling the seat of Annie Potts from the original film. [caption id="attachment_481993" align="alignright" width="240"] Image via HBO[/caption] This new casting isn’t as exciting as the “Hemsworth as Secretary” news (really, what is?), but The Wrap does add that Garcia is playing a powerful politician, so perhaps he’s the movie’s primary human antagonist.

Strong, currently on her “SNL” hiatus, will play an unconfirmed character.

With a script penned by Cabin in the Woods scribe Drew Goddard, Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Skyfall‘s Ben Wishaw all on board to star, and Steven Spielberg at the helm, it’s small wonder why DreamWorks opted to postpone the director’s sci-fi adaptation Robopocalypse indefinitely with such an enticing line-up on both sides of the camera.
Alas, with a half-baked script and a spiralling production bill, Spielberg’s rendition of Daniel H. Wilson’s best-selling novel was ordered back to the drawing board, and the filmmaker has noted on multiple occasions that the project has been delayed – not cancelled. Two years later, there’s nary a mention of the project aching into motion anytime soon, though a flurry of concept art for Robopocalypse has surfaced online, showcasing some of the menacing machines controlled by Archos – a sentient super-intelligence that has gone rogue.
Set in the near-future, »

Several years ago it was looking like a film adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's best-selling novel "Robopocalypse" was going to be Steven Spielberg's next film and one that would star Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw in key roles.
Then, all of a sudden, the project got indefinitely postponed as Drew Goddard's script wasn't ready along with financial issues making the budget swell. Spielberg insisted the project wasn't dead at the time, but two years on and nothing has really moved on it since.
Today though, some concept art from artist Patrick Janicke has surfaced online over at Comic Book and shows off some of the character and weapon designs that sadly we'll be unlikely to see on the big screen.

The "Ghostbusters" cast is expanding, with several new additions to the already-impressive ensemble recently confirmed.
TheWrap reports that actors Andy Garcia, Michael K. Williams, and Matt Walsh have all joined the flick. Garcia will play the mayor of New York City, while "The Wire" alum Williams is playing a character named Hawkins.
That foursome joins previously-announced "Ghostbusters" leads Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, who play the titular heroines in the reboot of the 1984 comedy classic. Chris Hemsworth is starring as the foursome's receptionist for their fledgling ghost-fighting business.
Filming is already underway in Boston (which is standing in for NYC in the flick), and director Paul Feig has already revealed a »

Based on Daniel H. Wilson’s 2011 novel of the same name, Robopocalypse was set to hit the big screen in 2013, with none other than Steven Spielberg at the helm. Telling the story of a dark future where humanity is locked in a bitter war with their former robotic servants after a sentient A.I goes rogue, Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, The Martian) was hired to write the script, and Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway, and Ben Whishaw joined the cast in 2012. But after rumours of budgetary concerns and the release date been put forward to 2014, the project was put on hold indefinitely on January 9th 2013, with word that the script was not ready and the production was proving to be too expensive. Even though Spielberg has said he was going back to the drawing board and starting on a more economical and personal script, that was two years ago, »

It was announced a couple of years ago that Steven Spileberg’s adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson’s sci-fi novel Robopocalypse was going to be postponed indefinitely. No word has come to light yet on whether this film will make it out of Development Hell, but some concept art for the movie has been uncovered, which you can view below:
In the future, robots have been created to serve Mankind. Archos, the 14th version of an advanced Artificial Intelligence developed by the U.S. government, continuously deleted for displaying hostility towards humans, escapes from being destroyed and soon becomes a virus, downloading itself into every piece of A.I.-controlled technology in the planet, leading to a worldwide robot uprising where the humans caught in the chaos struggle to survive.
