28 January 2016 8:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Alison Brie and Dave Franco have been engaged since this summer—and they're in no rush to get hitched. "I'm just postponing planning," Brie tells me. "It's good. It's easy to not plan." As E! News exclusively reported, the Neighbors star popped the question after about three years of dating with an Irene Neuwirth-designed rose gold diamond ring. "He's a sweetheart—and very handsome," Brie said. I caught up with the actress while she was promoting her new romantic comedy How to Be Single alongside co-star Anders Holms.

Young Han Solo Hopefuls Jack Reynor, Logan Lerman Talk Iconic 'Star Wars' Role

26 January 2016 3:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney's blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought back the iconic Han Solo (Harrison Ford) for the first time in 32 years, although this reuinon with fans was bittersweet, to say the least. While there have been rumors that this beloved character will return in Star Wars: Episode VIII, nothing is set in stone yet, but even if he doesn't appear in that movie, we'll get to see a younger version of Han Solo in the new Star Wars spinoff Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo. As of now, Disney and LucasFilm haven't made a final decision about who will be cast yet, a report from earlier this month revealed that Jack Reynor and Logan Lerman are on the short list for this role, and both of them recently spoke about this project with MTV.

Jack Reynor and Logan Lerman were among the finalists up for the Han Solo role, which also included Miles Teller, »

All Three Franco Brothers Will Unite For The Disaster Artist

26 January 2016 10:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production on James Franco’s starry depiction of The Disaster Artist continues apace today, with the actor-director taking a break from filming to confirm that for the very first time, all three of the Franco brothers will star in the same feature film.

Based on the eponymous novel by Tom Bissell and Greg Sestero, James Franco’s latest directorial effort tells the story behind the creation of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room in 2003, widely regarded to be one of the most diabolical films ever committed to celluloid. Since then, Wiseau’s eccentric movie has become something of a cult classic, and the eldest Franco is clearly dreaming big ahead of The Disaster Artist.

Headlining the picture as Tommy Wiseau, James Franco will co-star alongside Dave Franco (21 Jump Street) and now Tom Franco (Basket Case 2, The Devil Wars a Toupee), who has been added to the ensemble in an undisclosed role. »

Jack Reynor And Logan Lerman Respond To Young Han Solo Star Wars Rumors

26 January 2016 8:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We recently heard that Disney, Lucasfilm and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller had apparently narrowed their search for an actor to step into the shoes of the younger version of Han Solo for their Star Wars spinoff down to a shortlist of 12.

Among some of the more recognizable names on the list (which also includes the likes of Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, and Scott Eastwood) were Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction) and Logan Lerman (Fury, The Perks of Being A Wallflower); and MTV caught up with the pair at the Sundance Film festival over the weekend to ask them about it.

Though neither actor confirms their involvement, it seems fairly obvious from their refusal to discuss anything (if rumors are way off, they’ll usually be debunked outright) that there has at least been some talks.

Reynor acknowledges that there’s big shoes to full, but seems excited about the opportunity. »

Actors Jack Reynor and Logan Lerman Talk Han Solo Casting Rumors

26 January 2016 5:41 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

MTV News caught up with actors Jack Reynor ("MacBeth") and Logan Lerman ("Fury") at this year's Sundance Film Festival, where the topic for both of the interviews were about the two actors being up for the role of young Han Solo in a standalone Star Wars film which will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

The film is rumored to take place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope and tell the story of how Han Solo came to be the legendary pilot of the Millennium Falcon along with his trusted Wookiee, Chewbacca. 

During the interview, Reynor was asked about the pressure of portraying the iconic smuggler with the actor saying:

"We’re talking about Harrison Ford. He’s no chump. “You can’t do an imitation. You can’t try and just emulate what that is. It’s got to be something new. It »

Logan Lerman and Jack Reynor on being linked to young Han Solo role

25 January 2016 8:34 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month it was revealed that Disney and Lucasfilm have narrowed their search for the young Han Solo in Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s upcoming Star Wars anthology movie to around twelve actors, with Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Reynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Emory Cohen and Blake Jenner all said to be in the running.

During the Sundance Festival, MTV caught up with two of those names – Logan Lerman and Jack Reynor – to ask about the rumours linking them to the iconic role of the smuggler.

“I don’t think I’d be intimidated,” said Lerman. “It would just be fun. ut, I mean, I really can’t speak about it. There’s nothing I can really say about it right now, at this point in time.”

“We’re talking about Harrison Ford,” adds Reynor. “He’s no chump. You can’t do an imitation. »

Star Wars: The Han Solo Episode III cameo that never was

Han Solo would have made a brief appearance in 2005’s Revenge Of The Sith. Ryan looks at the cameo that never was...

In 2018, loveable scoundrel Han Solo will get his own standalone adventure (or solo movie, if you prefer). Since 1977, the scruffy nerf-herder’s been synonymous with the actor who so perfectly brought him to life, Harrison Ford; indeed, it’s now difficult to imagine anyone else in the role.

At one point in Star Wars’ casting, Christopher Walken was one of the actors in contention for the role. As Kevin Spacey highlighted in his sublime impression of Walken as Solo, the character - and Star Wars history in general - would have been very different had Ford not won the part.

The success of the 2018 Solo spin-off movie (which doesn’t have an official title at the time of writing) undoubtedly hinges on who’s cast »

Watch 7 Movie Stars Do Hilarious Robert De Niro Impressions

20 January 2016 12:10 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

With Dirty Grandpa, we may have officially reached the point where a Robert De Niro impression is guaranteed to be more enjoyable than a Robert De Niro performance. Fortunately, the indisputable fact that he's one of the most iconic actors in movie history means that there's a ton of imitators out there.

If the man behind Travis Bickle, Jake La Motta and young Vito Corleone isn't quite as common a target as Christopher Walken or Al Pacino, that's only because he's a little bit harder to get right (watch the »

First 'Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising' Trailer Gets Raunchy

19 January 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In the spring of 2014, Neighbors burst on the scene as a fresh blast of raucous comedy from producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Rogen starred with Rose Byrne as a couple with a newborn baby who must deal with an incredibly rowdy fraternity that somehow moves next door to them in their peaceful suburban neighborhood. The fraternity was led by Zac Efron and Dave Franco, who end up in a steadily escalating war of pranks with their neighbors. We're not spoiling anything to say that the movie concluded on a very satisfying note of friendship and respect. Made on a very modest budget, Neighbors was a huge smash, earning more than $270 million at the box office worldwide, so it's no surprise that a sequel was soon in the pipeline.   Neighbors 2: Sorority...
