14 hours ago

With Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch reportedly set for three of the leading roles in season two of HBO’s True Detective, the hunt for the show’s female leads continues. Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams were recently named as favourites, but a new report lists Seven actresses in contention.

While they could still be in the running, it seems as if creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto is casting a wide net to find the right person for the still pretty mysterious role. Here’s the full list of True Detective candidates:

Brit Marling (Another Earth), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Kelly Reilly (Flight), Jessica Biel (The A-Team), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Jamie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World) and Rosario Dawson (Sin City).

Tom Hiddleston to Star in Skull Island; Jordan Vogt-Roberts Directing

20 hours ago

At this year’s Comic-Con, Legendary Pictures confirmed that along with Godzilla 2 they were developing a King Kong origin story called Skull Island. No additional details were revealed, though we have since learned that Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein would be penning the screenplay for this monster movie.

That has now been confirmed via press release today as the studio have announced that Jordan Vogt-Roberts is attached to direct Skull Island. He’s best known for popular Sundance film The Kings of Summer, but he’s also attached to Sony’s big screen adaptation of the Metal Gear Solid video game franchise.

Skull Island is set to be released on November 4th, 2016 and a brief (but rather vague) description of the film was included in the announcement. “Previous works have touched on the island, but staying on and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences »

Night Will Fall Review

23 hours ago

At the risk of sounding morbid, the further away we move from the Second World War, the less people there are who remain to talk about it. It’s therefore incredibly important, for mere posterity, that we capture these soldiers and survivors and hear their first hand accounts of the horrors that occurred, as Andre Singer – fresh off the back of his producing role on the Oscar nominated The Act of Killing, takes a seat in the director’s chair for the first time this side of the millennium, with the harrowing documentary Night Will Fall.

Singer studies a lost documentary made by Sidney Bernstein (with the help of Alfred Hitchcock), which documents and explores life in a German concentration camp in 1945, exposing footage from the tapes (complete with original narration), with present day interviews with those who were involved at the time.

He also tells us whether it was his intention to become to heavily entwined with the action genre, and we also ask his thoughts on the forthcoming Star Wars films – and whether he would be interested in getting involved…

The Bourne Dependancy – Why Action Franchises are a Universal Remedy

16 September 2014 3:47 AM, PDT

News that Universal had collared Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass to reteam for another chapter in the Bourne series is not a surprise. Even while Jeremy Renner took on the series mantle in his brief time under the New Action Hero spotlight he still lived in the shadow of the duo. Now the popular spy series is set to be reborn.

Rumours spun wildly through the production of the underrated Green Zone (mis-sold as a quasi-Bourne IV thanks to a startling lack of faith from the marketing department) that another Bourne film was imminent, that Renner was a stop-gap, that there were more stories to be told. As has been pointed out this morning in the social media fallout it seemed (cinema) Jason Bourne’s story ended with the name David Webb, but Legacy proved there are many more chapters to this story. So, why were Universal so set on the reunion? »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass Finally Reuniting for Another Bourne Movie

15 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT

There had been rumours, but now a new Bourne movie actually starring title character Jason Bourne is said to be officially in the works at Universal. Both Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass have talked about the possibility of returning for another instalment, though it seemed like it was never going to happen.

The franchise kicked off with the well-received The Bourne Identity, but the series found even greater success when Greengrass came in to helm the follow-ups The Bourne Supremacy and Ultimatum.

The studio are in fact so keen on prioritising this team-up that they are planning on giving this film the release date originally set aside for the Justin Lin helmed sequel to the pretty uninspiring The Bourne Legacy which starred American Hustle actor Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross. Bourne without Bourne if you will.

What that means is we could see this new Bourne as soon as July 16th, »

Sony Reveal Plans to Reboot I Know What You Did Last Summer

15 September 2014 4:15 PM, PDT

A reboot of yet another franchise we’ve all managed rather well without is in the works, and this time it’s the 1997 horror movie I Know What You Did Last Summer. The original earned over $125 million worldwide and spawned a sequel, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, which ended up grossing $84 million.

Both of those starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, though there’s currently no word on the new cast.

This new take on I Know What You Did Last Summer will be produced and co-written by Oculus director Mike Flanagan, and he will be joined by writing partner Jeff HowardNeal Moritz will also produce (just as he did with the original which was based on the 1973 Lois Duncan novel).

Believe it or not, 17 years have passed since the release of the first movie and if Sony can make this on a fairly low budget, it stands »

Tiff 2014: The Judge review

15 September 2014 10:07 AM, PDT

The Judge, a court room whodunnit spliced with a generational family drama, is the sort of straight down the middle-of-the-road, sentimental twaddle that Hollywood turns out effortlessly, cheerfully foregoing anything resembling originality or sincere emotional resonance.

Robert Downey Jr. is Chicago attorney Hank Palmer, who makes a tidy living successfully defending wealthy clients against all manner of charges from assault to fraud. Palmer was raised in a small town in Indiana, and after receiving news of his mother’s death he hurriedly returns home, where it’s clear that the relationship between Hank and his father Judge Joseph Palmer (Robert Duvall) is very strained. Hank intends to leave on the first flight back to Chicago the morning after his mother’s funeral.

On the cusp of Hank’s departure, the police question his father about the hit and run death of a man the judge sent to prison for 20 years. »

The Essential Movies & TV to Stream This Week – September 15th 2014

15 September 2014 6:48 AM, PDT

First of all, something of an apology. I have been writing this column thinking that every single title due for release the following Monday would of course be released via some kind of pay to stream service. Of course it would, we are living in the future, and this is how things are done isn’t it?

Apparently not, last week I included Jeremy Saulnier’s much loved Blue Ruin in the pay to stream section and then it didn’t come out the way I thought it might. Turns out that some companies still have a fairly limited release pattern so Blue Ruin was released by channel 4’s DVD label and appeared on DVD and Blu but didn’t show up to stream on any of the major providers, not even Sky Store or Playstation Network.

So turns out that being a channel 4 release, you can of course rent »

Magic in the Moonlight Review

15 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT

Woody Allen’s latest offering is rather a perplexing beast. Packed to bursting point with talent, played out against an exquisite French Riviera backdrop and benefitting from a witty story, it ought to be fabulous. But it isn’t. Instead Magic In The Moonlight – the story of a skeptical magician and an artful clairvoyant – is something of a conjuring act itself. From an amiable muddle of misdirection, Agatha Christie adaptation aesthetic, lopsided performances and grand affectations, the veteran director still somehow extracts a dazzling ending which warrants applause.

World renowned conjuror Wei Ling Soo is better known to his very few friends as Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth) – an opinionated Englishman with a tangible disdain for the weak, gullible and “mentally defective”. Flattered by the extravagant compliments of lifelong friend and fellow illusionist Howard (Simon McBurney) – and abandoning plans to holiday with his pragmatic fiancée Olivia – Stanley agrees to a trip »

Rebels Spotted on Star Wars Episode VII Set; Obi-Wan Kenobi Movie in the Works?

15 September 2014 5:31 AM, PDT

The latest batch of Star Wars Episode VII set photos give us a look at what appear to be members of the Rebel Alliance, and among them may be leading actors Adam Driver and Gwendoline Christie.

It had been rumoured that both would be villains in the J.J. Abrams helmed follow-up to Return of the Jedi, but based on what we’re seeing here, that won’t be the case…at least not at first! One popular theory is that the Rebels took over the Stormtroopers and their spaceships and that what we’re seeing here are the remnants of the Empire making use of some sinister looking X-Wings. It seems far-fetched, but who knows?!

Less of a theory and more of a rumour is the news doing the rounds that Lucasfilm have started developing a Star Wars spin-off which will put the spotlight on fan favourite Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi. »
