'Masters of the Universe' casting update: Umm, okay

27 June 2016 6:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I recently re-watched the original Masters of the Universe on a big-screen, and let me just say, there’s a reason that movie wasn’t a hit. The narrative is clunky, Dolph Lundgren’s acting as He-Man is abysmal and the production’s budgetary limitations are painfully apparent in every frame. While there are things to love about it -- not least Frank Langella’s scenery-chewing performance as Skeletor -- it sadly hasn’t gotten any better with time. You may have heard that a new adaptation of the 1980s animated series is in the works and has been for nearly a decade, but the project was injected with new life back in January when it was revealed that Charlie’s Angels and Terminator: Salvation helmer McG had signed on to direct. Look, I get it! McG is no Christopher Nolan. But he’s made some fun films in the »

Kellan Lutz has met with McG about a role in Masters of the Universe

27 June 2016 6:33 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

At the start of the year, we brought you word that director McG (Terminator Salvation, 3 Days To Kill) was in talks to direct Sony's Masters Of The Universe reboot, and it sounds like he has landed the gig, based on a recent tweet by The Legend Of Hercules and The Expendables 3 actor Kellan Lutz. Late last week, Lutz took to his Twitter account to reveal that he has met with the filmmaker and producer Mary... Read More »

‘Tunnel,’ ‘Boy Missing,’ ‘Chosen’ Screen at Madrid de Cine

27 June 2016 12:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Three much-anticipated Spanish titles — “At The End of the Tunnel,” “Boy Missing” and “The Chosen” — will play at the 10th Spanish Screenings-Madrid de Cine, Spanish cinema’s annual international market. “Boy Missing” and “At the End of the Tunnel” are Hollywood studio releases in Spain.

Unspooling June 27-29, the Spanish Screenings are Spain’s equivalent of UniFrance’s mid-January Rendez-Vous with French Cinema and the U.K.’s London Screenings. They also serve to debate the state of the industry and underscore its key trends.

One seems obvious at this year’s meet: an appetite for thrillers. From the turn of the century, Spain carved out a reputation for horror movies, such as [“Rec”] or “The Orphanage,” which broke out to substantial box office in Spain and abroad. This year, it is thrillers, not chillers or gore, which predominate on the slates of Spain’s top international sales houses.

The move into thrillers is due, »

It Sounds Like Kellan Lutz Is Up For A Role In McG's Masters Of The Universe Movie

25 June 2016 8:55 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A new Masters of the Universe movie has been in the works for years now, but it's finally beginning to gain some traction with McG likely to take the helm for Sony Pictures. In fact, it appears as if the filmmaker has already started meeting with actors, as Twilight star Kellan Lutz has revealed today that he may be in early discussions for it. However, he doesn't specify who exactly he's being eyed for.  Hey @HeManTheMovie and all Motu fans, Had an amazing meeting with @McGsWonderland and @ItsMaryViola talking Motu! Its In Great Hands! »

Kellan Lutz Wanted as He-Man in Masters of the Universe?

25 June 2016 2:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While we've long heard that Producer McG and his Wonderland Productions are working with Mattel to reboot Masters of the Universe, they haven't really seemed in too much of a hurry to make that happen. Aside from a few little teases over the course of 2015, the movie remained fairly radio silent. That changes today with the news that Kellan Lutz has taken a meeting, presumable to play the lead character of He-Man. Nothing has been confirmed, but we do get some nice fan art out of it. Here's what he had to say in a Tweet.

"Hey @HeManTheMovie and all Motu fans, Had an amazing meeting with @McGsWonderland and @ItsMaryViola talking Motu! It's in great hands."

Masters of the Universe hasn't been seen on the big screen since 1987, and Kellan Lutz certainly sounds like a worthy replacement for Dolph Lundgren. The pair even shared the screen in the 2014 sequel The Expendables 3. »

Kellan Lutz In Talks For Masters Of The Universe

25 June 2016 12:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems to be a day of good news for long-gestating adaptations in Hollywood. Earlier this morning we reported that Justin Lin was being eyed by Warner Bros. to take the helm of Akira, and now it appears as if Sony is looking to get one of their projects out of development hell as well, with news that Kellan Lutz is in talks with the studio to take the lead role in Masters of the Universe.

The news comes via the actor’s Twitter account, where he revealed that he’s had a meeting with director McG and Mary Viola, the president of McG’s production company.

Hey @HeManTheMovie and all Motu fans,

Had an amazing meeting with @McGsWonderland and @ItsMaryViola talking Motu!

Its In Great Hands! ⚔

A new big screen version of Masters of the Universe has been in the works for years with various writers penning new drafts, but no version getting anywhere near getting in front of the camera.

It’s been stuck in development hell for a few years now, but back in January it was announced that Charlie’s Angels, Terminator Salvation helmer McG had signed on to direct Sony’s Masters of the Universe movie, and now it looks like we may be close to some casting.

Posting on Twitter, Twilight and The Legend of Hercules star Kellan Lutz has revealed that he’s met with McG about the movie, and you’d have to assume it was for the role of He-Man.

Kellan Lutz Up For "He-Man" Reboot?

25 June 2016 8:04 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though talk of the "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" cinematic reboot has been going around for some time, there hasn't been much movement on the project in recent years beyond the attachment of McG ("Charlie's Angels," "Terminator Salvation") as director.

Now it seems one actor has used social media to indicate he's at least met over the film and could be in the running - "Twilight" series actor Kellan Lutz. Lutz just tweeted:

"Hey @HeManTheMovie and all Motu fans, Had an amazing meeting with @McGsWonderland and @ItsMaryViola talking Motu. Its In Great Hands!"

For those wondering Mary Viola is the president of McG's production company Wonderland Sound & Vision. A meeting is a long way from even negotiations though, and how many actors McG has met for the film is unclear.

So far there's been few rumors regarding who'll play the protector of Castle Grayskull or when the »

Bruce Willis: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

Most Bruce Willis movies right now seem to head to DVD almost immediately. We've gone through them, in search of a gem...

It’s not exactly clear when Bruce Willis went from being a big star whose name filled seats and sold tickets to being a guy whose name you see on the cover of so many direct-to-dvd and VOD outings (albeit ones that sometimes get a week or two in a cinema, in essence to promote the VOD release), but I’d like to go out on a limb here and say that Kevin Smith’s mouth might be to blame.

During one of his filmed Q&A sessions that ended up winging its way to eager fanboys and girls like myself on DVD back in the late oughts, Smith talked at length about what it was like to work on the much-anticipated fourth instalment of the Die Hard franchise, »

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

31 May 2016 10:19 AM, PDT | 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.
