2 hours ago

Having collaborated on both Prisoners and Enemy, director Denis Villeneueve and star Jake Gyllenhaal are set to reunite for an adaptation of Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbo’s The Son.

Variety reports that the project follows “a once-gifted 15-year-old and promising wrestler, whose life spirals out of control when his cop father commits suicide. He winds up in prison, nurtured by an uninterrupted supply of heroin from a seedy chaplain on the inside. When he learns long-hidden truths about his father’s unexpected death, he makes a brilliant escape and begins hunting down the people responsible for his wrongful sentence.”

Nesbo’s Headhunters was adapted for the screen back in 2011, while Tomas Alfredson is directing an adaptation of The Snowman starring Michael Fassbender as Detective Harry Hole, which is slated to arrive next year.

Director Denis Villeneueve will next be back behind the camera this summer for the as-yet-untitled Blade Runner sequel, »

Unfortunately for them a vicious serial killer known as The Trapper got there first and turned the area into a death trap.

The Trapper always thinks three steps ahead, but even he doesn’t know what’s coming next.

Rumour: Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie to focus on Miles Morales

8 hours ago

Before Tom Holland was cast as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, there was a tonne of speculation suggesting that Marvel would cast a non-white actor in the role, and perhaps even go down the Miles Morales route as opposed to Peter Parker.

Well, of course that never came to pass, but if Heroic Hollywood is to be believed (come on, don’t laugh…), we may get to see Miles Morales on the big screen after all, albeit in animated form, with the site reporting that Sony will focus on Miles for the 2018 animated feature film.

Of course, this being Heroic Hollywood, there’s every chance the report is just speculation, so Miles Morales fans may not want to get too excited until we hear from a more reliable source.

8 hours ago

With X-Men: Apocalypse opening in the States today, director Bryan Singer has been chatting to Fandango about the movie, during which he confirmed that unlike X-Men: Days of Future Past, there will be not additional director’s cut or extended version of his latest foray into the world of the X-Men.

“There will be nothing like the Rogue Cut or anything like that”, Singer told Fandango. “I’m not a big fan of director’s cuts or extended editions, I never have been. In the case of Apocalypse, I removed what would be considered a conventional amount from the movie to protect what we call the collective experience of the feature theatrically. How it feels pace wise and movement wise.”

Rumour: Tom Hiddleston in “advanced talks” for James Bond role

9 hours ago

Fresh from the news that Jamie Bell (Fantastic Four) has held discussions with producer Barbara Broccoli about taking on the role of James Bond, Birth.Movies.Death is now reporting that Tom Hiddleston is in “advanced talks” to succeed Daniel Craig as 007.

The site claims that the news can be taken in two ways: that Daniel Craig is out as Bond and the role is Hiddleston’s for the taking, or that Eon is talking to other actors in an attempt to gauge a response from Craig with regards to him continuing in the role.

Given that it’s Birth.Movies.Death, a third way of taking this news could be that they’re trying to guess a scoop and have heard that the bookmakers have been taking a tonne of bets on Hiddleston for the role – so much so that one has suspended all betting. That being said, they »

Nicolas Cage gives an update on National Treasure 3

13 hours ago

Back in October of 2013, director Jon Turteltaub revealed that he hoped to go into production on National Treasure 3 “within two years”, only for things to fall deathly silent on the third chapter in Disney’s action-adventure series.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, star Nicolas Cage has confirmed that the project remains a possibility, but so far they’ve been unable to nail down the script:

“I haven’t really heard anything about that,” states Cage. “I do know that those scripts are very difficult to write, because there has to be some credibility in terms of the facts and fact-checking, because it was relying on historical events. And then you have to make it entertaining. I know that it’s been a challenge to get the script where it needs to be. That’s as much as I’ve heard. But they’re still working on it.”
