The Good Lord Bird
Jaden Smith and Liev Schreiber have signed on to star in an adaptation of James McBride's slightly satirical, Huckleberry Finn-esquw slavery drama novel "The Good Lord Bird". McBride, Schreiber and Brian Taylor will produce.
Smith plays a young slave named Henry "Onion" Shackleford who skips town with abolitionist John Brown (Liev Schreiber) who believes Henry is actually a girl.

Proverbs 15:3 says, "The eyes of the Lord are in every place, watching the evil and the good." By which we can assume that God has seen True Detective. But, according to Psalm 5:4, "You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness," which Biblical scholars interpret to mean that He did not enjoy the naked parts with Alexandra Daddario.
The nimble Jesus People approaches the Evangelical community with a fake documentary about the tension between pop culture and Christian faith. Yes, guns-and-Reagan Christianity is a big, fat, easy target for improv comedy, and the danger for performers is slipping into a boring Robin Williams caricature.
But director Jason Naumann treats the characters with genuine affection and a portrayal of faith that actually has int »
Joe Dante's new comedy horror 'Burying the Ex' has reached its post-production stages. And along with this production shift comes a couple of stills, courtesy of Styd, from the project based on the original short film by scribe Alan Trezza. The two images feature one of actor Anton Yelchin ('Star Trek into Darkness') and co-star, and all round hottie, Alexandra Daddario ('Texas Chainsaw Massacre') and the other is a a more highly defined version of a previous image first previewed by Entertainment Weekly featuring Yelchin and Ashley Greene ('Twilight'). Greene plays Evelyn the ex-girlfriend of Yelchin's character Max who accidentally dies in a freak accident only to rise from the grave to win back her boyfriend. Check out the images below. »
Back in December we got our first look at Burying the Ex, the new film from master of horror Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Hole). As the zombie flick gets ready to burst up from the depths and emerge at Cannes, we got our hands on a brand new image today...
...which gives us our first look at the lovely Alexandra Daddario. Dig it, cuz!
Based on a short film of the same name, the Alan Trezza-penned script follows Max (Yelchin) and Evelyn (Greene) as their relationship takes a nose dive once they move in together.
Max discovers how controlling and manipulative Evelyn is, but he’s too scared to break up with her. When fate steps in and Evelyn dies in a freak accident, newly-single Max prepares to move on with Olivia (Daddario). His romantic life becomes complicated when Evelyn »

Though 2015 is all but assured to be one of the most competitive summers in box office history, New Line has every reason to still be confident in the ability of their blockbuster, earthquake thriller San Andreas, to make waves. After all, it stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, one of the most consistently bankable action stars working today. In fact, Forbes named him 2013′s top-grossing actor, for the cumulative successes of Snitch, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain and Fast & Furious 6.
San Andreas will see Johnson playing a special-ops firefighter who journeys into San Andreas with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) after “The Big One” hits, intent on rescuing his daughter (Alexandra Daddario). Now, New Line is rounding out the cast with some more familiar faces.

If you just look at the stunning success of dystopian Ya adaptation Divergent, which raked in $56 million over the course of its opening weekend, you might start to believe that bringing beloved books to the big screen is a no-brainer. However, widening the scope a little shows that scoring hits with Ya adaptations is a decidedly tricky business. In the past twelve months alone, we’ve seen The Host, Beautiful Creatures, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Ender’s Game and Vampire Academy all flop spectacularly. And while Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, Fox’s second attempt to spin Rick Riordan’s bestselling adventure series into box office gold, wasn’t an outright failure, its returns have been less than impressive as well.
So, it wasn’t that surprising when, a few days ago, star Logan Lerman reportedly told MTV that Percy Jackson 3 is “not happening.” However, Lerman proceeded to »

A review of tonight's "New Girl" coming up just as soon as I take the thing that looks like a meth lab and put it in the thing that looks like a pipe bomb... Back when "New Girl" did its post-Super Bowl episode with Prince, I did one of my periodic rants about how happy couples don't ruin sitcoms and that Jess and Nick getting together weren't the root cause of the problems plaguing season 2. And I still feel that way, even after an episode where the two of them broke up because they realized they enjoyed being themselves as friends more than pretending to be other people so they could stay a couple. A whole lot of things went awry all at once this season — Schmidt turning evil, the adjustment period when Coach returned, Winston became completely crazy except when he wasn't, etc. — so that you can't point to »

Action star Dwayne Johnson was in Las Vegas yesterday for the CinemaCon convention, where he debuted the first trailer for his upcoming summer adventure Hercules. The actor also spoke with the press about several upcoming projects, including the 3D disaster movie San Andreas and next year's Fast & Furious 7.
But first, the action star threw more fuel on the speculative fire about playing a mystery DC Comics character, which could be either Lobo or a new Green Lantern. When asked about the swirling rumors, the actor revealed he has been in talks with DC for years about starring in a superhero movie.
"Okay, well since you asked. We're all friends. So, you know, there's been mutual interest with myself and DC for many years to find the right character. I, like everyone here in the room, love superheroes. So there's been mutual interest with us for years, and we've been having ongoing discussions, »
A dispute between the crew and the producers of San Andreas, a 3D Hollywood action adventure which is set to shoot in Queensland next month, has been resolved.
Village Roadshow Pictures and New Line Cinema are co-producing the $100 million movie which stars Dwayne Johnson as a helicopter pilot who embarks on a treacherous journey to search for his missing daughter after a massive earthquake hits California.
After the crew voted to reject the proposed working conditions, the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance put counter proposals to the producers and a deal has been agreed.
.Meaa has negotiated a compromise that will see 6th day overtime improved and a Monday- Saturday working week re-instated,. the union said in a newsletter to members.

Tuesday night’s episode of New Girl will find Winston (Lamorne Morris), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), and Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) at odds over how to put the moves on their new, very attractive female neighbors.
“We have neighbors that move in, and they happen to be strikingly beautiful women,” explains Morris. “Winston is saying, ‘Let’s help them move; this would make them want us.’ Schmidt and Coach are kind of like, ‘Are you kidding me? If you help them move, you’ll become a doormat. »

That is the first image we’ve seen from San Andreas, which will chronicle a rescue-chopper pilot’s attempts to rescue his estranged daughter after a deadly earthquake rocks California. The film is directed by Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), and also stars Carla Gugino, and Alexandra Daddario- who just appeared in a multi-episode arc on HBO’s hit series True Detective.
San Andreas is set to premiere on June 5, 2015.
Also notable is that San Andreas may be Johnson’s last film before he dives into his secret DC project. The rumors are still ablaze, thanks in-part to another Instagram post from the megastar, that he’ll be assuming the mantle of Green Lantern as John Stewart in DC’s Justice League »
