Rome – Rome’s Cinecitta Studios is boasting a burst of biz prompted by tax incentives which are luring back Hollywood majors, including Paramount and MGM with their “Ben Hur” remake more than five decades after the Charlton Heston original shot at the famed facilities.

A portion of the upcoming 24th James Bond film is also among high-profile pics scheduled to shoot in Rome early next year.

Cameras are set to roll at Cinecitta starting in February 2015 on MGM and Paramount’s “Ben Hur” redo, to be helmed by Timur Bekmambetov with Jack Huston in the title role, according to a Cinecitta statement. Production designer Naomi Shohan will be reconstructing pre-Roman empire Jerusalem on the Cinecitta backlot for a planned four-month shoot.

Current 'Planet of the Apes' Series May Be More Than 3 Movies

21 November 2014 7:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even before Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was released in theaters, a third movie was being planned as 20th Century Fox promised to present Caesar's story as a trilogy. Now, speaking with MTV, Andy Serkis teases that the rebooted series could expend past that, becoming four, or maybe even five movies.

Right now, Andy Serkis can't say too much about the next sequel, as a script hasn't been finalized. According to the actor, he doesn't yet know how far along Planet of the Apes 3 will pick up after the events seen in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

To be honest, it's very, very early in where we choose to drop our anchor in the next film, so it could be five years after the event. It could be the night after the events of where we left 'Dawn,' so it's very difficult to know where »

Is this the plot for Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four?

18 November 2014 10:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The mysterious Fantastic Four is still shrouded in mystery with no production photos, no trailers and not even official synopsis released ahead of its release next August. But, it seems there is a possible leak in 20th Century Fox and the plot is finally arrived on 4Chan (via Cbm)

Or is it?

“Reed is a genius convenience store clerk with Ben. Reed’s parents don’t care about him, and Ben’s dad is abusive. They’re good friends and have each other’s backs. Reed writes a paper for community college on teleportation that attracts the attention of Dr. Franklin Storm, CEO of the Baxter Building research center.

Storm has a son, Johnny, and an adoptive daughter, Sue, whose father, Storm’s old partner, died in an experiment gone wrong. Johnny and Sue are party kids, and Sue is particularly disdainful of science. Reed and Sue don’t get along at first. »

Full 'Fantastic Four' Reboot Story Details Revealed?

17 November 2014 4:20 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With its release less than nine months away, there is still very little official information out there regarding 20th Century Fox's The Fantastic Four reboot. Last week, we learned that the villainous Doctor Doom (Toby Kebbell) will not be known as Victor Von Doom, as seen in the original comics, but instead Victor Domashev, an anti-social programmer who is known as "Doom" on blogging sites. Today, a detailed plot rundown offers what could be the entire story for director Josh Trank's remake, which shows how Reed Richards and Ben Grimm first meet the Storm siblings.

There will be spoilers below, so read on at your own risk!

Naturally, this hasn't been confirmed by 20th Century Fox at this time, but this extended synopsis started making the rounds on Reddit and 4Chan over the weekend. Since we have no official plot details to compare it to, we're not sure if »

Spoiler Warning! Is This The Entire Plot Of Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four?

17 November 2014 1:45 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

This synopsis started doing the rounds on sites like 4chan, reddit and Superhero Hype over the weekend, and appears to reveal the entire plot of The Fantastic Four. This certainly wouldn't be the first leak from the Josh Trank helmed movie as photos of The Thing and Doctor Doom have found their way online this year, meaning its at least somewhat feasible that there's someone who may have taken it upon themselves to reveal major plot details from the reboot. Personally, I would have been more inclined to believe this had it leaked Before Toby Kebbell's comments about The Fantastic Four's Victor Domashev as that obviously would have given it a lot more credibility. It makes for an interesting read though, and despite some huge differences from the source material - including the fact that The Thing at first is able to switch back and forth like the »

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Blu-ray Review

17 November 2014 5:15 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Nick Thurston, Terry Notary, Karin Konoval, Judy Greer | Written by Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver | Directed by Matt Reeves

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes  will be categorized as a summer blockbuster because of its release date, high budget, and extensive use of special effects. However, its story and character first mentality along with its stark wiliness to take chances makes it an almost anti-blockbusters. Now that is not to say it is void of thrilling action or inspired set-pieces. There is plenty of entertainment to be had. It is simply not driving the story and in many ways the least interesting aspect of the entire film. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes  may be a sequel to an already rebooted franchise. That does not mean it cannot be filled with innovative »

Top 5: Margot Robbie in Suicide Squad, Dumb And Dumber To, Universal’s Monster Universe, Insurgent Trailer, Doctor Doom’s New Origin in The Fantastic Four

15 November 2014 1:41 PM, PST | | See recent news »

I want to make this as clear as possible: if you've yet to check out writer/director Dan Gilroy's thriller Nightcrawler, you need to as quickly as you can. In his directorial debut, the veteran writer has not only crafted one of the best films of the year but also one of the most captivating protagonists in recent memory with Jake Gyllenhaal's Louis Bloom. The film centers on Bloom, a sociopathic thief who learns he can make a living shooting video of horrific events and selling said video to a local television news station managed by industry veteran Nina Romina (in an excellent turn by Rene Russo). As Bloom hones his craft, his price goes up and the stakes build in direct proportion. Nightcrawler should be lauded for its absolute evisceration of the local television news industry and its astute look at an economy so barren that it »

Ayelet Zurer Circling Role In Ben-Hur Remake

13 November 2014 5:53 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

MGM’s remake of 1959 historical epic Ben-Hur failed to nab Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice actress Gal Gadot (who had to pass on the project due to a scheduling conflict), but it may have managed to get a hold of another powerful woman in Superman’s life all the same.

According to THR, Ayelet Zurer, who played Superman’s Kryptonian birth mother Laura Lor Van in Man of Steel, is circling a role in Ben-Hur, though it’s not the same one that was offered to Gadot. If she ends up committing to the project she’ll play Naomi, the mother of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston).

This marks one of several big projects to come Zurer’s way following last year’s Superman reboot; she recently wrapped production on Last Days in the Desert opposite Ewan McGregor, and has been cast as Vanessa Fisk, the wife of the Kingpin, »

Olivia Cooke In Talks For Ben-Hur

13 November 2014 4:21 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The casting information about the new take on the Ben-Hur story is coming in quicker than a speeding chariot. With director Timur Bekmambetov looking to set his cast quickly ready for shooting to gear up, Ouija star Olivia Cooke is circling the role of Tirzah, Ben-Hur’s sister.Taken once again from Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel, the new version aims to chronicle the younger days of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston) and Messala (Toby Kebbell), best friends growing up in Jerusalem. Ben-Hur is a Jewish prince and Messala the son of a Roman tax collector who is packed off to be educated in Rome for five years. Upon his return, Messala mocks our hero for his religion. After an accident he pins on his friend, he has him sold into slavery, while imprisoning his mother and sister. Cue a quest for revenge that includes (in the 1959 Charlton Heston film, at any rate) the iconic chariot race. »

Why People Need To Stop Complaining About The Fantastic Four Reboot (Revisited)

12 November 2014 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on The Fantastic Four

I’ve been a big defender of 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot. And by defender, I mean I’m mildly interest and I’m holding off any judgement on it until I see a trailer, rather than grabbing my pitchfork with the rest of the internet.

In September, I wrote an article titled ‘Why People Need to Stop Complaining About The Fantastic Four Reboot’. It was met with backlash and a lot of people were upset at the notion of being told what they should and shouldn’t be upset by, but that wasn’t the point of the article. I wrote it to say two things really. The first being that nobody really cares about The Fantastic Four. You make think you do, but no you do not. Fantastic Four sold less than 30,000 copies in October. It wasn’t even in »

Mike Gold: They Aren’t So Fantastic…

12 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

There has been a debate amongst comics wags that the rumor about Marvel cancelling their flagship title, Fantastic Four, during their 75th anniversary celebration was just that – a rumor. Marvel/Disney couldn’t possibly be that petty. Bleeding‘s Rich Johnson, who carried the story, steadfastly stood behind his sources. Good for him.

Evidently, Marvel wasn’t happy with how 20th Century Fox was treating the property in the forthcoming movie reboot, they didn’t want to support it and so were cancelling the comic book. Ok, but would they cancel all those X-Men titles if they didn’t like the way Fox handled their latest X-movie? Of course not. Nor did Marvel cancel the Spider-Man titles despite the atrocious way Columbia handled the Spidey flicks of late – and they’ve got release dates for three or four more.

To be fair, compared to the profits of the »
