Tyler Perry Never Heard of David Fincher Until Joining His Gone Girl Film

23 hours ago

Tyler Perry is incredibly successful when it comes to his Madea movies and his many TV shows, but he also likes to take supporting roles (and one lead role) in studio movies. But apparently he feels very uncomfortable joining the cast of films that are under the direction of top Hollywood directors. So why is he in David Fincher's "Gone Girl"? According to Perry, he had no idea who Fincher was. "I probably would have walked away from ['Gone Girl'] if I had known who David Fincher was and his body of work, or if I'd known the book was so popular," said Perry. "I would have said 'No' and my agent knew that! He didn't tell me until after I signed on!" The entire quote sounds bizarre. Is it possible that Perry never heard of the man who made "Fight Club," "Se7en," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Zodiac," "The Social Network, »

Joss Whedon Discusses Iron Man's Hulkbuster Suit in Avengers: Age of Ultron

25 August 2014 3:33 AM, PDT

In a new interview with Empire magazine, director Joss Whedon and producer Kevin Feige spoke about "Avengers: Age of Ultron" trailer that was shown at Comic-Con, specifically regarding the scene in which the Hulk battles Tony Stark in his Hulkbuster suit. But since Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) are friends and teammates, why would Stark need a Hulkbuster suit? According to Feige it's a "back-up plan. In case things go awry." Whedon added: "The Hulkbuster is after my time [as a reader], but even I knew what a big deal it was. It makes sense because there's no one who can really go up against Hulk, but more importantly, those guys are best friends, so what that battle is and what it means is fascinating to me." »

Chloe Moretz Says Kick-Ass 3 Won't Happen

25 August 2014 3:33 AM, PDT

Mark Millar recently said that a third "Kick-Ass" film may still happen, but now comes word from Chloe Moretz that the "Kick-Ass" franchise will likely never be revisited. "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies," she said. "'Kick-Ass 2' was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn't help us because we need box office figures. We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie - but because it didn't do so well, we can't make another one." But that doesn't mean that Moretz isn't interested in playing a superhero again. "I try to keep abreast on what's out there and what's being made," she said. "We're getting a lot of source material from books and comics right now, »
