5 September 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It’s a question he’s been asked before: Would you considering being the next James Bond? But while he skirted around the question back in 2012 — saying “it’s too late now” — when a Reddit user posed the question again on Friday during an extensive Ama, he seemed a bit more enthusiastic. In fact, he seemed  to get downright giddy at the thought of it, urging everyone to start a “Denzel is Bond” campaign stat.

“The next James Bond? They better hurry up! Yes I would! Who’s doing James Bond now..Daniel Craig! Did they shoot another one? Everybody »

It’s the Music That Makes the Man: Top 10 Movie Themes for Action-Packed Guys in Film

19 June 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Every movie has to have its signature song and that certainly goes for the action-oriented males in film that are fortunate to have these finger-snapping tunes represent them on the big screen. The movie theme song indulges the audience and delivers a whole new kind of intrigue and feeling that we invest in the roguish ruffians on the big screen that some men would like to emulate and the ladies would love to cozy up to intimately.

There are music selections that do bring to mind the euphoria of the male action-packed characters we regard highly despite their moral compass. Maybe one can get excitable when hearing Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” tune for the Marvel Comics superhero of the same name? Perhaps any of the musical themes for the countless James Bond films tickle your fancy? (there are two included in this article incidentally). Your preference might be in »

Nicholas Stoller Says Uptown Saturday Night Is Still On Its Way

25 April 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Have you noticed that non-romantic pairings of actors in Hollywood movies in recent years have largely followed the ‘big star/little star’ pattern? Mel Gibson and a young Robert Downey Jr. in Air America, Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett in Hollywood Homicide, Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in 2 Guns – sometimes, it’s almost as if filmmakers are afraid the screen can’t hold more than one megastar at a time. Back in the day, we’d enjoy Robert Redford and Paul Newman together in the frame, or Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby. Now, Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors) and Adam McKay (Anchorman) are attempting to re-capture that level of mega-wattage by re-making the 1974 film, Uptown Saturday Night.

Originally written by Richard Wesley – the first screenplay by the successful playwright – Uptown Saturday Night was directed by Sidney Poitier, who also starred in the project alongside Bill Cosby and Harry Belafonte. With Poitier and Cosby as two friends, »

Seth Rogen and Kevin Hart May Team for Buddy Cop Comedy

21 April 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his upcoming comedy Neighbors, starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, director Nick Stoller revealed that he wants to direct an Untitled Buddy Cop Comedy next (tentatively titled Black and White), which has Seth Rogen and Kevin Hart attached to star. Here's what he had to say about the project in an interview with /Film, where he described the movie as a mix between Baz Luhrmann and Quentin Tarantino, as it centers on the first pairing in history of a white cop and a black cop together.

"The next thing I want to direct is this thing for Seth [Rogen] and Kevin Hart. It's basically about the first white cop black cop pairing in history. That takes place in the late '40s and they have to bust jazz musicians for weed. It's kind of a Baz Luhrman world mixed with Tarantino shit. It's a lot of things. »

No ‘Anchorman 3′, Ron Burgundy Goes Gently Into That Good Night

28 February 2014 5:30 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“It’s done. I think that’s it. It was great to do it, and it was so fun to work with those guys again, but I think that’s it for Ron Burgundy.” So says Adam McKay, director, co-writer and producer of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and 2004′s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, when asked about a potential third installment. Will Ferrell, along with castmates Christina ApplegateSteve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner will make their final run together on the big screen starting today, with an R-rated, extended cut of the most recent theatrical release, with over seven hundred new jokes, which essentially turns this version of the film into a massive comedy stew of scenes that didn’t make the final cut, and a whole lot of improvisational comedy. It’s a seven day run in theaters, and according to McKay, that’s the last new Burgundy you’ll be getting »

While fans get ready to check out the Super Sized R Rated Version of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues in theaters this weekend, which contains 763 new jokes, director Adam McKay reveals that there will not be an Anchorman 3 sequel. Here's what the filmmaker had to say in an interview with Empire, where he claims this is the last sequel he will ever make, nixing rumored plans for a Step Brothers 2.

When asked if it's possible that the filmmaker may revisit the story in a decade or so, »
