Untitled Robert the Bruce Project

"Starred Up" director David Mackenzie is reportedly keen on reuniting with that film's star Jack O'Connell for an upcoming and very gritty film about medieval Scottish king Robert the Bruce which he's working on.

Mackenzie says: "I’m trying to get Jack involved in that.  And I can’t say that’s official, but Jack and I have been in discussion on that.  But not as the Robert the Bruce character, as a secondary character, but a very, very sort of close second." [Source: Collider]

Simon Pegg shares his thoughts on Roberto Orci directing Star Trek 3

12 August 2014 5:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although we’re yet to have an announcement from Paramount Pictures on who will be directing Star Trek 3, it seems like it’s all but official that Roberto Orci will be taking up the director’s chair vacated by J.J. Abrams, and now star Simon Pegg has echoed that sentiment, sharing a few thoughts on the Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness co-writer taking over the reins on the sci-fi franchise:

“He emailed me before the news broke saying: ‘Hey man, I might be doing this, shall we nerd out?’” Pegg tells the BBC. “I’m really happy he’s doing it as it’s kept within the family kind of thing, it’s not somebody coming in from outside. Bob’s been there since the first Star Trek – by that I mean the 2009 one – so it seemed to make perfect sense that he come in as a »

Watch the return of Coach Ted Lasso featuring Jason Sudekis

11 August 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Jason Sudekis (Horrible Bosses) brought us a skit that featured him as an American football (or soccer) coach who was hired to manage Tottenham Hotspur. Since he was let go from duty (after just six and a half hours), he now finds himself working at NBC as a pundit.

Still inept as ever, watch as Ted Lasso as he doesn’t understand live TV, struggle with time differences and run into someone how looks an awful lot like Everton and USA keeper Tim Howard.

Watch the video below:

Jason Sudekis will return to cinema screens later this year with Horrible Bosses 2 alongside returning cast members Charlie Day (The Lego Movie), Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Jennifer Aniston (We’re The Millers), Kevin Spacey (Superman Returns) and newcomers Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Christoph Waltz (Muppets Most Wanted).

Casey Affleck in Talks to Star in Disney's The Finest Hours

10 August 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) is in talks to join Chris Pine in Disney's true story adventure drama The Finest Hours

 Million Dollar Arm director Craig Gillespie is helming the project, which is an adaption of the book written by Casey Sherman and Michael J Tougias.

The story is set in 1952 and follows the coast guard rescue of 84 men off Cape Cod after two oil tankers collided and were torn in half by waves during a fierce blizzard.

Affleck and Pine are both incredible actors who seem to fit perfectly in this type of movie. I love this story, and it's sure to make an incredible film. 

Here's the synopsis from the book:

In the winter of 1952, New England was battered by the most brutal nor'easter in years. As the weather wreaked havoc on land, the freezing Atlantic became a wind-whipped zone of peril. »

First Look at Christoph Waltz in Horrible Bosses 2

9 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Warner Bros. released a new photo from Horrible Bosses 2 giving us our first look at Christoph Waltz in the film. In the image he's having a little chat with Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis on a golf course. Chris Pine, who plays Waltz's douchebag son, is standing behind him.

Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business. But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor's adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company. 

In case you missed the funny teaser trailer for the film, click here. The movie is set to be released on November 26th, and it looks like it's going to be hilarious. »
