Five Actors You Should Never Fight for Creative Control

23 July 2010 | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

Ed Norton disowns The Incredible Hulk, and other tales of "artistic differences." News recently broke that Marvel Studios is replacing Ed Norton in the role of the Hulk for the upcoming multi-hero Avengers movie — mainly because the suits had such a headache dealing with Norton's controlling nature while making 2008's Incredible Hulk. In honor of Ed, we've rounded up Hollywood's most notorious creative collaborators. Sure, actors in general are a fussy bunch, but these five are agitation hall of famers.  1. Marlon Brando  In his later years, Marlon Brando carried on like the larger-than-life legend he (in fairness) was, making ridiculous demands and acting like every production was leagues beneath his talent. Superman was one of many films wherein Brando refused to read the script or even learn his own lines; in one scene, he's reading his lofty dialogue off the diaper of the infant playing [...] »

Comic-Con 2010: Megamind Animates the Crowd

22 July 2010 2:34 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

My first panel at Comic-Con, Megamind, kicked things off right: with humor, mystery, and costumes! The animated film from Dreamworks caught the audience by surprise when star voice Will Ferrell showed up on stage - covered in blue face paint and dressed as the title character. He was joined by costars Tina Fey and Jonah Hill, and as the room waited with bated breath to see if Brad Pitt would show up . . . he did! A cardboard stand-up of him, anyway. Still, Ferrell, Fey, and Hill had no problem warming up the morning crowd without him, cracking jokes about the convention and introducing a few minutes of the movie. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw - as director Tom McGrath said, it's Dreamworks's first superhero movie and the concept turns the genre on its head. While Brad Pitt voices Metro Man, Will Ferrell plays his nemesis, »

Sdcc: The Megamind Panel

22 July 2010 1:38 PM, PDT | Superherohype | See recent Superherohype news »

Will Ferrell arrives in full cosplay mode

DreamWorks Animation launched the first Hall H panel of Comic-Con 2010 this morning with a look at their upcoming Megamind.

Moderator Drew McWeeny welcomed director Tom McGrath and the voice of Megamind, Will Ferrell, who took the stage in a homemade costume and his trademark deadpan sense of humor, feigning surprise when the rest of the cast (Tina Fey and Jonah Hill) did not follow suite. Though Brad Pitt is supposed to be attending the con, it was announced that he couldn't make the panel and, instead, a cardboard cutout of him was jokingly brought out to stand next to the rest of the panelists.

"Whoever I met at the hotel last night," said Tina as she sat down, "you left your Admiral Ackbar outfit in my room. I just want to know if I can keep it."

"It's a trap!" Ferrell added.

Porn Star's Lost Interview Links Him To Superman Reeve

21 July 2010 3:06 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

A late gay porn star has stunned Hollywood with allegations he bedded Superman star Christopher Reeve.

Cal Culver gave up the sordid details in an interview before he died in 1987 and now the lost chat has been unearthed and included in new book Hollywood Babylon Strikes Again.

Culver, who died of an AIDS-related illness, told the unnamed interviewer he met Reeve when both were auditioning for the same Broadway role in the mid-1970s.

In the chat, the porn star says, "Christopher was a great lover and I think I liberated him sexually.

"I didn't think he was gay but he seemed willing to try anything once. He was curious."

In the book extract, obtained by the Globe, Culver calls Reeve "the man of my dreams" and reveals the two men had a passionate affair that lasted for two months - until the future Superman learned his partner was a gay porn star, who performed under the name Casey Donovan.

Reeve died of heart failure in 2004, almost a decade after he was paralysed in a horse fall. »

Doug Liman Interview Covert Affairs; Plus Updates on All You Need Is Kill and Nick Tungsten, Nightmare Hunter

10 July 2010 11:50 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In the new USA Network drama Covert Affairs (which premieres July 13th), Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) is a young CIA trainee who is thrust into the inner sanctum of the Agency when she is unexpectedly promoted to field operative. Although she has been plucked from obscurity for her exceptional linguistic skills, there may be bigger reasons why her CIA bosses (Peter Gallagher and Kari Matchett) have taken an interest in her.  With her new job, Annie has to hide her life from her family and friends, including her intrusive older sister (Anne Dudek), but CIA military agent Auggie Anderson (Christopher Gorham), blinded while on assignment, does his best to make her life at the Agency a little smoother.

During a recent interview, executive producer Doug Liman talked about developing a story for the small screen versus the big screen and explained why the USA Network was the perfect fit for this project. »

Please No: Chris Columbus To Direct Next ‘Superman’ Film?

9 July 2010 8:45 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Word on the street (remember that said word could, in fact, be unsubstantiated and untrue) is that director Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire, the first two Harry Potter films, I Love You, Beth Cooper) has been offered the chance to direct The Man of Steel, the next Superman film, written by David S. Goyer and produced by Christopher Nolan. [Pajiba]

Why, you ask? Because Warner Bros. thinks he’s “the right fit” and is planning “the 3D Superman reboot for December 2012. “[Supermanhomepage] Apparently Goyer wanted to direct but the studio recalled that he directed The Invisible and The Unborn, and said no. In all fairness, Columbus would fair better than Goyer most likely.

That said, is Columbus really the right fit? Is there no better option? It’s not as though Columbus is some cheap newcomer (a la Spielberg with Jaws) or a reliable semi-retiree (like, I don’t know, Richard Donner! »

Randomness: Sorcerers, Pesci, Garfield

6 July 2010 9:57 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Three things that amused me in the past 48 hours.

1. Message received from my friend txtcritic whilst under the influence of Love RanchMan, this Joe Pesci has Range.2. E-mail received from reader Yonatan. It may surprise you but after seeing the movie, I can safely predict that The Sorcerer's Apprentice won't be nominated for an Oscar.Ah, sweet sarcasm. Times two.

3. Various comments /articles about the "pennies" Andrew Garfield is making for that Untitled Spider-Man Reboot (2012). The hyperbole/perspective distortion amuses in a gallows humor sort of way in this era of double digit unemployment. I understand that it's not Nicolas Cage millions but from the vantage point of this perpetually poor writer $500,000 seems like a very nice paycheck for six/seven months work and a leap frog move up several rungs on Hollywood's lucrative latter. What is it they always say about your first hit in Hollywood, 'You'll make it on the next picture. »

Back to the Future turned 25 today. A look at the trilogy’s finest moment.

4 July 2010 9:54 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Scott Mendelson

“Did you say seventy years?”

Has there ever been a cooler cliffhanger in modern film history? The idea of splitting a long film into two pieces and releasing them relative closely to each other was a new idea back in 1989.

But of all the split-in-two franchise pictures, Back to the Future II has by-far the most satisfying finale of them all. To this day, I still get chills when the Western Union guy drives in from the torrential rainstorm.

The wonderful logic of it, the way it bridges the way from part II to part III while completely closing the book on the narrative of the first two films; it’s just perfect. The modern ’split in two’ franchises (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Matrix, Harry Potter and Twilight) are basically one film split into two parts.

What Could Have Been, Part 2: Superman 5

30 June 2010 8:45 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

"What Could Have been", Part One, explored what might have happened if Bryan Singer had stayed on to direct X-Men: The Last Stand instead of leaving for Superman Returns. Singer's Superman was supposed to bring the beloved franchise back to the former glory it had achieved with Richard Donner's Superman and Superman II (the "Director's Cut," of course). Superman 5 is the subject of Part Two of "What Could Have Been," an unproduced sequel that would have brought Christopher Reeve back for one last turn as the Man of Steel.

Christopher Nolan Talks Superman

Christopher Nolan can't get away from comic books. The Batman Begins and The Dark Knight director's new thriller Inception hits theaters on July 16, but that doesn't stop questions about Batman 3 and his involvement in shepherding a new Superman movie for Warner Bros. with David S. Goyer writing the script. While speculation is rising over who Nolan will cast as the Man of Steel, Nolan told MTV that the movie is far from the casting stages.

Does Christopher Nolan Want An Unknown Actor For Next 'Superman' Movie?

28 June 2010 9:29 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

At this point, we know very little about the next time we'll see Superman on the big screen, except that "The Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan will be shepherding the Man of Steel's next live-action adventure.

But what will the film be like? Who will play Superman? These are the questions that bother us so — so we made sure to sneak in a few of them when we spoke to Nolan this weekend at the press junket for "Inception," his upcoming film starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

"I haven't even thought about it, to be honest," Nolan told MTV News when asked whether he'd liek to see a known or unknown actor playing the iconic superhero. "All of these things, whether you're dealing with Batman, Superman, [or] whatever you're doing, it's all about story first."

"It's all about figuring out exactly the tone and meaning of the story and how you're going to approach it, »
