Director Christopher McQuarrie confirmed the actor's return on Twitter, with Rhames reprising his Luther Stickell role. In case you forgot, he appeared briefly at the end of "Mission: Impossible —Ghost Protocol" and we'll presume he'll have a bit more to do in this next entry in the series. [via SuperHeroHype] Paul Giamatti will play music manager Jerry Heller in the N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton" directed by F. Gary Gray. Heller managed the groundbreaking hip hop group during their rise to fame, but was also blamed by members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre for hastening group's breakup by favoring Eazy E in business decisions. The film arrives in theatres on August 14, 2015. [THR] "Les Miserables" star Samantha Barks has joined Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton in the drama »

Go Behind the Scenes with New Dracula Untold Stills

16 July 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Universal's 'Dracula Untold' hits theatres this October with Brit star Luke Evans taking over the legendary role. The studio have revealed a small batch of new stills including a couple of behind the scenes snaps that feature Evans and director Gary Shore. Along with the previously released trailer I can't honestly say I'm sold on this project. I'll admit that vampirism is by far my least enjoyed sub-genre and from all the teasers and assets unleashed on us so far I'm not exactly blown away. Let's hope things can change in the next months leading up to its October premiere. 'Dracula Untold' also stars Sarah Gadon ('The Amazing Spider-Man 2'), Dominic Cooper ('Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'), Zach McGowan, Thor Kristjansson, Art Parkinson, and Samantha Barks ('Les Miserables').

First Trailer for Dracula Untold Released Starring The Hobbit’s Luke Evans

28 June 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Like a lot of iconic movie monsters, Dracula has had a rough time of it over recent years, with one of his most recent live-action adaptations – the NBC television series which starred Jonathan Rhys Meyers – lasting only a single season before being cancelled due to low ratings and a tepid critical response.

Perhaps then it’s for the best that Dracula Untold is taking the vampire back to basics as it strives to deliver a very different take on his early years. In this movie, the focus will be on Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans) as he strikes a deal a deal with dark forces in order to protect his family and protect his homeland.

Will we see his descent into the blood sucking villain that we all know so well from previous movies, or could the studio be looking at Dracula Untold as the first in a series of movies exploring Dracula’s early years? »
