"Twilight: Eclipse" Director to Do Disney's "Matched"

5 September 2012 4:06 PM, PDT

I still believe that "Twilight: Eclipse" is the best of the franchise, and that's thanks largely to director David Slade who also gave us "30 Days of Night." Now, according to Heat Vision, Slade is jumping from one novel to another novel, albeit Young Adult novel this time. The director has been tapped by Disney to helm the studio's big screen version of "Matched." Yes, this one is dystopian love story.

Ally Condie wrote the book and her idea for "Matched" came in 2008 when her husband asked her, "What if someone wrote the perfect algorithm for lining people up, and the government used it to decide who you married, when you married, etc.?". Condie was also inspired by a time when she chaperoned a high school prom and other experiences such as falling in love and becoming a parent." (Source: Wiki)

Michelle and Kieran Mulroney of "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" wrote the script, »

5 September 2012 3:58 PM, PDT

The Wachowskis are back in the limelight promoting their intriguing new movie "Cloud Atlas." This is the first time the siblings appear in front of the cameras together after Lana (previously Larry) decided to go on with her gender transition. More power to her!

The New Yorker paints a humanizing portrait of the siblings, and tells the story of Lana's gender reassignment. "For years, I couldn.t even say the words .transgendered. or .transsexual," Lana said. "When I began to admit it to myself, I knew I would eventually have to tell my parents and my brother and my sisters. This fact would inject such terror into me that I would not sleep for days." Read the whole article here where you'll learn about the making of "Cloud Atlas" and much, much more!

And thanks to our friends at The Hollywood Reporter, here's the video of the Wachowskis (Lana and »

Poking fun at an explosive new Vanity Fair story saying that Tom Cruise and his Church of Scientology auditioned a bevy of Scientologist actresses to be the actor's mate after Nicole Kidman and prior to Katie Holmes, Seth Rogen tweeted, "I have to fire my agent.

Just So We're Clear, Director Joe Carnahan Says His "Death Wish" Movie is Not a Remake!

5 September 2012 3:40 PM, PDT

Remember the 1974 "Death Wish" movie starring a vengeful Charles Bronson? Yes? Well, if director Joe Carnahan will get his wish, his version is Not a remake, y'all. So stop calling it a remake, pronto!

Apparently, Carnahan, who I admire (check out my interview with the director for "The Grey" right here), wants to base this movie on the Brian Garfield 1972 novel. Fair enough!

So, Carnahan tweeted: Guys, for the record and so I don't have to answer this question a billion goddamn times. 'Death Wish' is Not a remake. At all, in Any way.

Okay, Mister Joe, we hear ya, it's not a remake. At least until we see the film then we can compare and contrast. »

It's Official! Jim Carrey Joins "Kick-Ass 2!"

5 September 2012 3:33 PM, PDT

I love "Kick-Ass" like most of you do! So you may be happy to know that Jim Carrey is officially joining the sequel now known as "Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall." Director Jeff Wadlow, who is inheriting the director's chair from Matthew Vaughn, revealed in a tweet that "6 days till we start shooting... and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f'n then!"

Carrey will star as The Colonel, he's one of the good guys who'll help Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz).

Vaughn will produce the sequel and Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicolas Cage are reprising their roles.

Let's see if Carrey will do justice to The Colonel or if Wadlow will do justice to the sequel when "Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall" targets theaters on June 28, 2013. »
