Mark Salling Dropped From ‘Gods and Secrets’ After Child Porn Indictment

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Former “Glee” star Mark Salling has been dropped from the film “Gods and Secrets” after being indicted on Friday for possessing child pornography.

Director Adi Shankar released a statement on Tuesday saying that the project would be “moving forward without” Salling. The actor was set to play a villain in the action pic starring Kellan Lutz, Denise Richards and Jane Seymour.

Co-directed by Stewart Yost and penned by Shawn DeLoache from a story by Shankar, the movie explores the ramifications of a world filled with superheroes

Shankar is personally paying for Salling’s scenes to be re-shot, and donating a percentage of profits from the project to a “charity for abused children.”

Shankar had previously said that he would cut the actor from the film if the allegations were true, saying he would “immediately take action, which includes removing his scenes from the project.”

Ashley Greene Reveals Bloody Good Twilight Dish

25 May 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's been four years since the final Twilight film was released, but we still can't resist hearing some inside scoop about our favorite vampire film franchise. Ashley Greene, who played Alice Cullen in the films, met up with E! News' Sibley Scoles to answer 10 questions about all things Twilight. She goes on record about everything from what she took from the set, how she got the role, and even Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's on- and off-screen romance. Greene says of who she keeps in touch with from the cast, it would probably be Kellan Lutz and Rob the most. But when it came to any on-set romances or crushes? She admits she had a soft spot for Jackson Rathbone, "Oh yeah, I »

Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell Play Up Their Offscreen Chemistry on the Red Carpet

7 April 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Anna Kendrick attended the premiere of her latest film, Mr. Right, in NYC on Wednesday evening, looking as stunning as ever. Upon her arrival, the funny lady met up with her costar Sam Rockwell and played up her offscreen chemistry with him on the red carpet: Sam stayed close to Anna, keeping his arm around her waist, and at one point, he even pulled her in for a hug and kissed her on the head. Just last week, Anna made headlines when she turned to Twitter with an urgent request. While home alone and struggling to dice some butternut squash, she enlisted the help of a "strapping muscular man," and lo and behold, Anna's Twilight costar Kellan Lutz replied back with a flirty tweet. But that's not all! Things later took a bizarre turn when Alyssa Milano got involved. Keep reading for more pictures, and then see how everything went »

Anna Kendrick and Kellan Lutz's Flirty Twitter Exchange Has Taken a Bizarre Turn

30 March 2016 10:10 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

On Monday, Anna Kendrick turned to her Twitter account with an urgent request. She was home alone, struggling to dice some butternut squash, and in need of a "strapping muscular man." Enter Kellan Lutz, beefcake extraordinaire and notable former costar of Anna from way back in her Twilight days. Kellan replied to the tweet with his signature charm, and dare we say a bit of flirting? We're used to seeing hilarious tweets on Anna's account, but we've never seen her musings take such a splendid turn. That's not all, though. Things got even more amusing when Anna responded and Alyssa Milano joined the conversation. See how everything went down below, then check out Anna's amazing "life motto" from last year. »

‘Extraction’ DVD Review

13 March 2016 7:58 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Bruce Willis, Kellan Lutz, Gina Carano, D.B. Sweeney, Joshua Mikel, Steve Coulter, Dan Bilzerian, Heather Johansen, Roman Mitichyan, Christopher Rob Bowen, Rob Steinberg, Lydia Hull, Tyler Jon Olson | Written by Max Adams, Umair Aleem | Directed by Steven C. Miller

I have a love/hate relationship with Bruce Willis these days. On the one hand he stars in films I love such as the Red, G.I. Joe and The Expendables; and on the other he appears in direct to market dross like The Prince, Set-Up and Vice. Now don’t get me wrong, some of the direct to DVD titles Willis has appeared in are pretty good, Fire With Fire for example, but he’s been batting way below average on the Dtv front recently.

Watch: Trailer For Action Flick 'Precious Cargo' Starring Bruce Willis & Mark-Paul Gosselaar

25 February 2016 9:43 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With the upcoming action flick "Precious Cargo," we are witnessing one of two things: either the continual slide of Bruce Willis into movies that would be straight-to-dvd if his name wasn't Bruce Willis, or, the career resurrection of "Saved By The Bell" star Mark-Paul Gosselaar (who last year, had a role in "Heist," a movie starring Robert De Niro that would have been straight-to-dvd if it didn't have Robert De Niro in it). Read More: Watch: First Trailer For Actioner 'Extraction' With Bruce Willis, Gina Carano, And Kellan Lutz Directed by Max Adams, and co-starring Claire Forlani, John Brotherton, Daniel Bernhardt and Lydia Hu, "Precious Cargo" follows a thief who recruits her ex-lover, also a thief, to pull off a job for dangerous bad guy.

Berlin: Lunchtime Talk With Gabriela Bacher of Film House Germany

11 February 2016 10:09 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gabriela Bacher, CEO of Berlin-based Film House Germany and managing director of Summerstorm Entertainment, knows the Berlinale better than most. “I knew it even before Dieter Kosslick ran it — as a student growing up in Vienna, when the headquarters were in the Bikini building,” she recalls. Now working mainly from her firms’ L.A. outpost, she arrives in town ready to make production deals and indulge her love of fine food.

Recommended dining

I’m a bit like Dieter — I’m thankful he’s a more sophisticated food nerd than I am — (in that) I love “slow food” that’s organic and locally sourced, so I love what he does with the Berlinale Street Food Market, that little food truck alley outside of the Berlinale Palast. There’s another very funky new place I enjoy called Industry Standard in Neukoelln, and then there’s the complete opposite: Borchardt, an established »

Why ‘Creed’ Was Sylvester Stallone’s Toughest Role

5 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nearly 40 years after Sylvester Stallone introduced audiences to Rocky Balboa, the actor’s return for his seventh shot at the character in “Creed” has propelled him into a surprise awards-season contender — a status he hasn’t claimed for a long time.

“I actually am startled,” says Stallone, 69, in a recent interview at an upscale Beverly Hills hotel. “It’s a character that I love and never thought I’d play again. I didn’t think it would resonate like it did, especially with a newer generation. I never went into the film thinking this is going to be a transformative performance. I just thought Rocky has a lot of issues, a lot of problems. He’s like all of us.”

If Stallone sounds like a retired champ, the story line fits his real life. In the ’80s and ’90s, Stallone — along with Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger — ruled the action »
