James Franco Didn't Know He Has a Cameo in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

8 hours ago

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" takes place ten years after "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and doesn't bring back any of the original actors, except for Andy Serkis as Caesar. There is, however, a quick cameo by James Franco. But as the actor just revealed, he had no idea that he was in the movie. "I have a cameo? I didn't know that," he said. "I don't even think they asked my permission for that." According to SlashFilm, the script for "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" has Franco's character die from the virus. Director Rupert Wyatt even shot the sequel, but never used it in the movie. Since the sequel will try to bridge the gap between the two movies by showing news footage and bringing Caesar back to his old house, it's likely that Franco's old scenes will be used in these places. »

X-Men Director Bryan Singer Accused of Raping 17-Year-Old Boy

8 hours ago

Bryan Singer, the writer, producer and director of more than twenty films, including three installments in the "X-Men" franchise, was just accused of sexually abusing a 17-year-old boy in Los Angeles and Hawaii where firearms, drugs and alcohol were present. According to the federal lawsuit, the conduct took place in 1999 and included rape and other physical force, and forced intoxication with cocaine. "The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit," said Singer's attorney Marty Singer. "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 new movie ('X-Men: Days of Future Past') is about to open in a few weeks." The plaintiff is Michael F. Egan III, a Nevada resident who moved to Los Angeles with his family as a teenager to further his acting career. »

Robin Williams to Return for Mrs. Doubtfire Sequel

8 hours ago

It's been over two decades since Robin Williams dressed up for his role in "Mrs Doubtfire." But now comes word that Fox 2000 hired David Berenbaum (Elf, The Spiderwick Chronicles) to write a sequel to the 1993 comedy and is bringing back Chris Columbus to direct and Williams to star. In the original film, Williams played a struggling actor and recently divorced father of three who, in order to be closer to his children, takes on the persona of a Scottish nanny, Euphegenia Doubtfire. It went on to gross around $440 million globally and won a Golden Globe or best comedy/musical. "Mrs. Doubtfire 2" has been in the works since 2001 with many scripts being submitted by many writers. Unfortunately, none of those scripts interested Williams and Columbus enough to return. Apparently things are now different. »

18 hours ago

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is set to hit Us theaters on May 2nd, but was just released overseas. While reviews are all over the place, the one thing fans are talking about is not the actual film, but the credits. In the UK screenings of the sequel, the credits contain a sequence from "X-Men: Days of Future Past," featuring Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Havok (Lucas Till) and Toad (Evan Jonigkeit) fighting William Stryker (Josh Helman) and his military men.

We previously heard of Disney/Marvel considering cross-promotion with other studios, but Sony and Fox got together and created their own deal.

Sinister Six Spin-Off May Not Feature Classic Spider-Man Villains

16 April 2014 5:31 AM, PDT

While promoting "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," producer Matt Tolmach spoke about the upcoming "Sinister Six" spin-off, revealing that director Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) is not sticking to the comics to choose which six villains will make up the team. "Nothing is sacred," he said. "It's going to be the best Six that you can imagine, but it's going to make sense in the world that we're building." It's likely that Electro (Jamie Foxx), The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) will be part of the six members. Plus, there is the other Goblin, played by Chris Cooper. And since Venom is getting a spin-off, The Lizard (Rhys Ifans) was left alive, and both Doctor Octopus and The Vulture are hinted at in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," they are possibilities as well. This means that the original Sinister Six villains, like Mysterio, Kraven the Hunter and Sandman, »

Tatum continued: "He's just kind of suave. He's the most un X-Men X-Man that's ever been in X-Men. Other than maybe Wolverine, who's like the anti-hero. He's a thief. He's not even a hero.

Andrew Garfield Says Spider-Man is Jewish

15 April 2014 7:06 PM, PDT

While promoting "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," Andrew Garfield shared some of his opinions on Spider-Man, stating that the character is Jewish. "Spider-man is neurotic," said the actor. "Peter Parker is not a simple dude. He can't just switch off. He never feels like he's doing enough. And Peter suffers from self-doubt. He ums and ahs about his future because he's neurotic. He's Jewish. It's a defining feature." Garfield continued: "I hope Jewish people won't mind the cliche, because my father's Jewish. I have that in me for sure. He's an over-thinker. It would be much easier if he was a life-saving robot." Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee, who is Jewish. The character, however, has been married in the comics and had his wedding in a church. »
