R.I.P. Richard Kiel (Jaws from James Bond)

11 September 2014 1:18 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Actor Richard Kiel has died at the age of 74. The 7'2 tall, Detroit-born actor had been admitted to a hospital in Fresno after breaking his leg last week.

Kiel starred in numerous films and TV shows over the years including "Happy Gilmore," "Tangled," "Force 10 from Navarone," "The Longest Yard," "The Nutty Professor," "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," "The Greatest American Hero," "Starsky and Hutch," "Kolchak: The Night Stalker," "The Wild Wild West," "The Twilight Zone," "I Dream of Jeanie," "I Spy," "Daniel Boone," "Simon and Simon" and more.

At one point he and Arnold Schwarzenegger were the original choices to play the title character in the 1977 TV series "The Incredible Hulk". Kiel was cast and shot the pilot, but was ultimately replaced by Lou Ferrigno.

It is, however, one role in two films that Kiel will always be remembered for - the iconic steel-toothed henchman Jaws in the Roger Moore-era »

Richard Kiel 1939-2014

10 September 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The cinematic world may forever know him as an imposing, steel cap-toothed villain, but in real life he was a man who embraced his cult status and enjoyed a healthy career as a character actor. Richard Kiel, James Bond’s Jaws, has died at the age of 74.Kiel was born in Detroit, and years before his time spent menacing Roger Moore with fake gnashers, the acting bug bit. He kicked off his career on the stage, supplementing his income by working as a nightclub bouncer and as a maths instructor at night school in Burbank.In the early years of his career, Kiel worked in a swathe of popular TV series, making his debut in 1960s Western series Klondike. He gained early popularity playing the Kanamit alien in the iconic Twilight zone episode To Serve Man, and from there appeared in a range of shows such as The Man From U.N.C.L.E., »

Dax Shepard Making 'CHiPS' Film; Shepard & Michael Pena To Star

3 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dax Shepard will write, direct and star in the CHiPS movie for Warner Bros., which will also star Michael Pena.

Dax Shepard's 'CHiPS' Movie

Shepard is turning the erstwhile CHiPS TV series into a movie in which he’ll play Officer Jon Baker opposite Michael Pena’s Frank “Ponch" Poncherello, reported Deadline. In the NBC TV series created by Rick Rosner that ran from 1977-1983, Larry Wilcox played Jon Baker and Erik Estrada played Ponch. The series followed the two khaki-clad officers as they patrolled California highways on motorcycles.

Shepard’s Primate Pictures is producing the film with Andrew Panay, while Rosner, who oversaw 139 episodes of the original series, will be onboard as an executive producer.

CHiPS will be following in the footsteps of other TV shows from that era that were eventually transferred to the big screen – including The Dukes of Hazzard (2005) and Starsky and Hutch »

CHiPs Is Finally Set To Roar Into Cinemas For Warner Bros

3 September 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hollywood reboot machine shows no sign of slowing down, as Warner Bros has tapped Dax Shepard (Parenthood) to write, direct and star in a big screen version of decades-old TV show, CHiPs. The series, which ran from 1977 – 1983, was essentially a police procedural, centred around two California Highway Patrol Officers, and really won its audiences over with the charming performances of its leading men – Larry Wilcox as Jon Baker, and Erik Estrada as Frank “Ponch” Poncherello. Those roles are now set to be filled by the equally charming Michael Pena (End Of Watch) as Ponch, and Shepard as Baker.

At the time of its original broadcast, the sight of Wilcox and Estrada in their clingier-than-clingy uniforms, astride powerful motorcycles, became as iconic as Catherine Bach’s ‘Daisy Dukes’ from The Dukes Of Hazzard – but unlike that show, CHiPs had hitherto failed to achieve a big screen reboot.

CHiPS Reboot Coming To The Big Screen

3 September 2014 12:55 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

There have been many a big screen reboot of classic t.v. shows, Starsky and Hutch, The Dukes of Hazard, and the upcoming The Equalizer to name just three, and while some of them should have stayed on the small screen, that doesn't stop Hollywood from green lighting the next one. Which brings us nicely to CHiPS, which Deadline report to be slated to go ahead at Warner Bros. with Dax Shepard (Hit and Run) attached to write, direct, and star. Following the adventures of two California motor cycle cops, Shepard has signed onto the role of Officer Jon Baker, originally played by Larry Wilcox, and Michael Pena will step into the shoes of Erik Estrada's Frank 'Ponch' Poncherello. While most of these big screen reboots have been comedies slyly aware of their small screen roots, word is CHiPS will be a buddy cop movie in the vein of Lethal Weapon or Bad Boys. »

Will Ferrell To Produce Film Version Of Cult Series Manimal

23 July 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off the heels of his role as President Business in The Lego Movie, Will Ferrell is starting to get more involved in the business side of making movies. Gary Sanchez Productions, which Ferrell runs alongside Anchorman director Adam McKay, has signed on to produce a big-screen adaptation of 80s cult TV series Manimal. Jimmy Miller and series co-creator Glen A. Larson are also tapped to produce, while Key & Peele scribes Jay Martel and Ian Roberts are working on the script.

Manimal, which had a brief, eight-episode run on television in 1983, follows Dr. Jonathan Chase, a shape-shifter who fought crime by morphing into animals. While it is not surprising that a show with that premise was cancelled so abruptly, Ferrell and McKay are promising additions to a film that could be very funny. With Manimal, Sony Pictures Animation hopes to have a hybrid of live-action and animation, similar to their Smurfs franchise, »

Castle season 6 episode 20 review: That '70s Show

27 April 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Laura Akers 27 Apr 2014 - 09:25

A 70s themed episode of Castle? Laura says it's not as bad as it could've been, but still pretty hit and miss...

This review contains spoilers.

6.20 That '70s Show

I have to admit I have spent the past few weeks cringing at the very idea of this week’s episode. Television shows that do period or other “themed” episodes tend to fall into one of two categories: either they are truly inspired or complete rubbish. The former tends to be a small group and the latter extremely large.

It all depends on the writers.

I think I’ve made my case in past reviews that Castle’s one ongoing problem is that the writers tend to be inconsistent at best. So based on this, I was certain that this week’s episode, That '70s Show, was going to join that much larger and more disappointing group. »

Win: A Blu-ray copy of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

22 April 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Ben Stiller rose to fame in a number of outrageous, family-friendly comedies, be it Zoolander, Meet the Parents or the classic remake of 80's favourite Starsky and Hutch. However, as Walter Mitty Stiller showed a different side, one that possessed a far deeper acting style and one that was evident Stiller wanted to continue with.

But just how does he do it? Just how is Mr. Stiller so damned articulate? Well, let's see, as Ben retails us with his thoughts on watching films at home:

Riveting, Mr Stiller.

Fortunately for Mr Stiller his onscreen, acted performances are far more convincing; and to celebrate the release of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD, Shadowlocked has teamed up with  Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to give away a Blu-ray and DVD copy of the film to two lucky winners.

Antoine Fuqua To Tackle Southpaw With Jake Gyllenhaal

7 March 2014 6:06 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With The Equalizer in the can, set for a late 2014 release, Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen) has been busy looking for his next project. Now, it seems that he has officially settled on a film that has been on his radar for a while – the long-gestating Southpaw, which will star Jake Gyllenhaal.

As the story of a rising welterweight boxing champion who enjoys continued professional success while his personal life disintegrates, Southpaw was originally conceived by Kurt Sutter (creator of Sons Of Anarchy) as a vehicle for Eminem (Marshall Mathers). As Deadline reported in late 2010, DreamWorks co-chairman/CEO Stacey Snider acquired the project after championing 8 Mile as head of Universal Pictures. Sutter explained that it was inspired by the struggles Eminem had endured:

“He shared so much of his personal struggle in this raw and very honest album – one that I connected with on a lot of levels. »

Joseph T. Naar, TV, Film Producer and Wma Agent, Dies at 88

Joseph T. Naar, a former William Morris agent who went to produce blaxploitation vampire pics “Blacula” and “Scream Blacula Scream,” as well as TV series “Starsky and Hutch,” died January 17. He was 88.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: 9 reasons to watch E4's hilarious new Us comedy

16 January 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine - a new cop comedy from the team behind Parks and Recreation - makes its UK debut tonight on E4 and Digital Spy is a bit of a fan.

Here's 9 reasons why we think the latest sitcom to make its way here from the 'States is arresting television...

1. It's the best new Us comedy in yonks

Every fall season, Us TV treats us to a few laugh-free 'laffers' and 2013 was no different, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of the good ones - genuinely witty with a terrific cast who share an instant, easy chemistry.

2. The rockin' theme tune

Each episode of Brooklyn opens with this rocking ditty - an affectionate tribute to the bombastic themes of classic cop shows like Hawaii Five-0 and Starsky and Hutch.

3. Andy Samberg

Leading the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is Samberg. Best known for playing kooky characters in the likes of BBC Three sitcom Cuckoo, »

The Top 10 One-Hit-Film Wonders

2 January 2014 10:50 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Every once in a while, an actor will come on the scene with impact, impressing everyone with a powerhouse debut performance. But sometimes a great freshmen performance fails to lead to a good follow up, and the person who made the impressive debut starts to fade from the scene. It’s always sad when such potential is unmet. Here are 10 actors who started with a bang but faded with a whimper.

Heather Donahue (The Blair Witch Project-1999) She came on the scene in a big way, starring in the low-budget hit film that became such a sensation and started the ‘hand-held-camera’ style of film making (Used in Paranormal Activity, Cloverfield and others). She seemed poised to be the new Jamie Lee Curtis, the horror film “it girl”. She got a lot of offers to do other horror films but turned them down, in order to prevent type casting. Since then, »
