The Brewster's Millions Remake Just Took A Huge Step Forward

9 hours ago

For a novel that's been adapted into ten different films, Brewster's Millions seems to still have some life in its pages. Since 1906, audiences have had quite a few chances to see what could have been their favorite book adapted for the screen, with the most memorable one being the Richard Pryor/John Candy version from 1985. And just when we'd thought we'd heard the last gasp for any sort of modern shot at a revival, a new Brewster's Millions remake has arrived and it brought a director along for the ride! Variety has reported that Robert Townsend, director of such classics as Hollywood Shuffle and Meteor Man, will be the latest director to tell the tale of a man who stands to inherit a large fortune... if only he can spend a small one in a limited amount of time. In the 1985 version, the stakes were to spend $30 million in 30 days, »

The Magnificent Seven Cast Is Starting To Look... Magnificent

10 hours ago

The original John Sturges-directed The Magnificent Seven had an absolutely stacked cast. Playing the titular group, the western brought together the likes of Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and James Coburn. That obviously gives the upcoming Antoine Fuqua-directed remake quite a standard to live up to, but the film is well on its way to making something. well, magnificent. News has come down from Variety that yet another big name has joined the Magnificent Seven cast . so we figured we.d shine a spotlight on this rapidly growing, awesome ensemble. The film still isn.t done adding big names, but here.s who is on board so far: When Antoine Fuqua first signed on to direct The Magnificent Seven last summer, it only took a matter of days before he was able to convince Denzel Washington to go on the adventure »

With Furious 7 on the way this year, and his upcoming performance as Black Adam in Warner Bros' Shazam, that reputation doesn't seem to have any sort of end in sight, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Of course, if this next rumor has any truth to it, he actually could have played an bigger part in the growing DC universe, as it.s been reported that he actually rejected the role of Green Lantern. This scoop was broken just recently on the Twitter feed of "El Mayimbe" from the website Latino Review.

Spider-Man: 5 Big Things To Expect From Marvel's Reboot

15 hours ago

Now that Marvel and Sony are working together on Spider-Man, we.re slowly learning more about what to expect from the next phase of his cinematic life. It was reported earlier today that Drew Goddard may write and direct the next Spider-Man solo film. Goddard was originally set to helm the Sinister Six spinoff film that was supposed to be released in late 2016, but now that the Amazing Spider-Man series is deader than Gwen Stacy (too soon?), both studios evidently think he would be a good fit for the new iteration of the Wall-Crawler. If this deal is finalized/made legit, he will follow in the footsteps of Sam Raimi and Marc Webb, as well as be able to return to the McU after leaving the Daredevil series. With a new director also comes a new creative direction, and with this announcement also came hints of what we might see »

16 hours ago

It appears that rumors suggesting that iconic actor, Al Pacino was close to nabbing a role in Marvel Studios. superhero universe just got real interesting. Just a few months on the heels of the revelation that Pacino did, in fact, have a talk with studio President, Kevin Feige, it looks as if director of Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn dropped a contextually groundbreaking answer to a fan.s question on Twitter. From the way it sounds, all those nice things Pacino has been saying about Guardians are mutual as far as Gunn is concerned. Fielding a fan.s question regarding which actor he.d like to work with, Gunn would take what seems to be the regular, innocuous kind of question a fan might ask a big-name director and decided to use it as opportunity get those rumor mills churning regarding the Pacino/McU issue.

Hawkeye Has The Most Boring Avengers 2 Poster Because Of Course He Does

19 hours ago

The upcoming Marvel mega-sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron has released a new character poster focusing on Jeremy Renner as the team.s ace archer, Clint Barton, aka, Hawkeye. While it may not be chock-full of impactful elements or revealing, newsworthy credit blocks like the poster Marvel dropped last week, it is a somewhat cool shot of the Avenger. However, while it looks like the film will have Hawkeye bringing a bow and arrow to a robot fight, it.s clear that the purple-clad combatant against evil will have a lot of screen time to make up for after the way he got whammied by Loki in 2012.s The Avengers. There.s not much to say about this poster as far as any potential revelations about the film.s plot or about Hawkeye, himself. It.s just Jeremy Renner.s badass, but underutilized Hawkeye standing in the hypothetical battlefield of "posterland, »

20 hours ago

The recent weekend box office win of Focus has seemingly reinvigorated the previously beleaguered cinematic star power of Will Smith, possibly redeeming himself from 2013.s Afterbirth. err, After Earth. However, it seems that his gorgeous Aussie ingénue co-star, Margot Robbie may have dealt the star another diss during the auditioning process in the form of a rhetorical ribbing at the former Fresh Prince that was far meaner than "yo homes, smell ya later." In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 24-year-old starlet anecdotally recalls the insane stream of events leading up to the Focus audition, which may come across as being a bit braggadocious about the globe-trotting cosmopolitan privileges that come with being a sexy movie star. Robbie recounts that she was in the midst of a backpacking vacation with her brother on an island off Croatia. After spending a day of swimming and sunning, disconnected from cell phones, »
