21 hours ago

Samuel L Jackson and Michael Madsen have taken part in a reading of Quentin Tarantino's axed script The Hateful Eight.

Bruce Dern, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell and Amber Tamblyn also took part in the event in Los Angeles.

The drama apparently sees a mismatched group of outlaws stranded in a saloon after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route.

Django Unchained star Jackson and Death Proof's Russell played a pair of duelling bounty hunters while Reservoir Dogs actor Madsen read the part of a cowboy.

According to BBC News, Tarantino told the audience of 1,200 that he was still working on a second draft of the script.

The one-off reading was attended by film mogul Harvey Weinstein and X-Men writer David Hayter.

The Hateful Eight was tipped to be the director's next Western movie, but Tarantino was shelved the project after the script was leaked in January.

Morgan Freeman: 'Christopher Nolan, David Fincher are very different'

19 April 2014 8:00 PM, PDT

Morgan Freeman has opened up about the prominent filmmakers who he has worked with throughout his illustrious career.

The Hollywood legend has worked with Christopher Nolan in the Batman franchise, David Fincher in Se7en, Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven and Steven Spielberg in Amistad.

When asked by Collider if there are any common traits with all the directors that he has worked with, Freeman answered: "No. I'll be more explicit here. Great directors are great directors by product, not by process. You work with some great directors that drive you nuts, because they'll shoot 17 or 25 takes.

"There are other great directors who move through a production like s**t through a goose, they just don't stop, they keep moving and they come up with good product. They're under budget and on time, or a little quicker than on time.

"Here, I speak specifically of people like Clint Eastwood. You have Chris Nolan. »

19 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT

Michael B Jordan has been attached to Men Who Kill.

Jordan is being pitched to star in the movie, which has been acquired by 20th Century Fox, reports Variety.

Jordan, who previously starred in the critically-acclaimed movie Fruitvale Station, is set to play superhero Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch in Fox's reboot of The Fantastic Four.

Last month, Jordan addressed the criticism of his Fantastic Four casting.

He said: "It was expected. You kind of know going into it that people are used to seeing something one way. It's a continuity thing more than anything.

"People don't like change too much. But annoyed? Eh, just kind of accept it. It is what it is. You can't make everybody happy. You just »

Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield: 'Justin Bieber's fame is not healthy'

19 April 2014 1:24 PM, PDT

Andrew Garfield has said that he could have turned out like popstar Justin Bieber if he had become famous at 16.

The 30-year-old actor recently spoke to Time Out London about his success, revealing that he's glad that fame came to him in his late 20s.

He shared: "If I'd had these opportunities when I was younger, I would have been Justin Bieber. If you are a 16-year-old kid and you can do whatever the f**k you want, you're making trillions of dollars and you have a leopard-print Ferrari, it's not healthy.

"If I was going through what I'm going through now when I was 16, I might have ended up in jail."

Bieber has made headlines for his alleged bad behaviour - such as his suspicion of DUI arrest and most recently missing a court date.

Garfield gained fame after appearing in David Fincher's The Social Network in 2010. He »

How to Play... a superhero: Tips from Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman

19 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT

Bow down, mere mortals. Superheroes are among us once more. Captain America is already on screens battling the Winter Soldier. Spider-Man will soon be back to amaze us. Then two generations of X-Men unite in Days Of Future Past, while we'll be meeting the Guardians Of The Galaxy later this summer. And that's not to mention new outings in 2015 for the Avengers and Batman and Superman (together in the same movie!) in 2016.

It's astounding to think that, only two decades ago, all we had in terms of superhero blockbusters was a Batman franchise about to descend into Joel Schumacher-inspired camp. Today, the possibilities for Hollywood actors wanting to don cape and spandex are endless – but how best to approach the gig of playing a hero who is even more super than most A-listers already assume they are?

With a little input from those who have already saved the world, »

Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard in first Macbeth movie pictures

18 April 2014 11:46 AM, PDT

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard have appeared in the first official pictures from their upcoming adaptation of Macbeth.

The duo appear as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth in the Justin Kurzel-directed version of the famous William Shakespeare play.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Fassbender explained the inner turmoil his character experiences over the course of the movie.

He said: "He's suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. It makes total sense, when you think about it. Justin set the seed of the idea in my head.

"This trauma is something we know about. In World War I they called it battle fatigue, and it was probably more horrific in Macbeth's days, when they were killing with their bare hands, and driving a blade through bodies.

"He's having these hallucinations, and he needs to return to the violence to find some sort of clarity, or peace."

The film will retain the original text's setting, »

Fox responds to Bryan Singer sexual abuse allegations

18 April 2014 6:41 AM, PDT

20th Century Fox has released a statement responding the sexual abuse allegations against Bryan Singer.

The X-Men director has been accused of sexually abusing a 17-year-old boy.

A lawsuit against the 48-year-old was filed in a federal court in Hawaii on Wednesday (April 16) relating to alleged incidents dating back to 1999.

A representative for Fox, the studio releasing Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, said to The Wrap: "These are serious allegations, and they will be resolved in the appropriate forum.

"This is a personal matter, which Bryan Singer and his representatives are addressing separately."

Singer's lawyer Marty Singer responded to the allegations yesterday (April 17), saying: "The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit.

"We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit. It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan' s »

Zack Snyder on why Batman is the 'enemy' in Man of Steel sequel

18 April 2014 6:14 AM, PDT

Zack Snyder has spoken about how Batman ended up being included in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.

Ben Affleck will play a new incarnation of Bruce Wayne in the Batman vs Superman project, with Henry Cavill returning as Superman.

Director Snyder explained to Forbes that he "subtly" mentioned the idea of Batman facing off against Superman in the film to producers.

He said: "I gotta be honest, it definitely was a thing that… after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, 'Maybe Batman?'

"Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne's house or something. Like in a cryptic way, that's the first time we see him. But then, once you say it out loud, »

Blue Ruin: Exclusive clip from Cannes prize-winning revenge thriller

18 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT

A clip from Blue Ruin has been released exclusively through Digital Spy.

Directed by Jeremy Saulnier, the thriller premiered in Directors' Fortnight at last year's Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Fipresci International Critics Prize.

Blue Ruin centres on a mysterious loner, Dwight (Macon Blair), who returns to his childhood home in order to commit an overdue act of vengeance, and thus begins a cycle of violence which places his estranged family in danger.

Despite the acclaim the film has now received, Saulnier initially struggled to find financial backing, and in 2012 turned to Kickstarter in order to fund the production.

"At our story's core, and what will set this film apart from standard genre fare, is a deeply human story about a haunted man confronting his past, and the fleeting moments he shares with his big sister before hurtling towards a nightmarish fate," Saulnier wrote in his director's statement on Kickstarter. »
