Rumor: Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood & James Marsden Eyeing J.J. Abrams & Jonah Nolan's 'Westworld' Series

8 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the canon of remakes-that-are-taking-forever-to-get-made, "Westworld" would be up there. The project is slowly developing for years and never quite getting anywhere, but last year J.J. Abrams and Jonah Nolan signed up to produce the movie for HBO, with the latter writing the script and directing the pilot. Well, it seems it's a step closer to happening as offers are now out for actors to fill the roles of the futuristic flick about robots run amok. According to Film Divider, Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood and James Marsden have been offered roles in the potential series. The concept will be similar—set in a futuristic, Western-themed amusement park—but it will instead focus on the robots....who don't realize they are robots. But you still need humans, and Hopkins has apparently been offered the part of Westworld proprietor, Dr. Ford, who is described as a mix between "Dr. Moreau, part Blade Runner’s Dr. »

Jj Abrams and Jonathan Nolan continue to work on Westworld for HBO - and the cast seems to be falling into place...

News

For a long time, the plan was seemingly to bring a new take on Michael Crichton's first theme park goes wrong movie, Westworld, to the big screen. Certainly in the time we've been doing this site it's a project that keeps popping up, as a mooted remake bumbled along in development.

Its future though is now on the small screen, and last year, it was revealed that Jj Abrams and Jonathan Nolan were developing their version of Westworld for HBO.

The script for the pilot episode has been penned by Nolan and Lisa Joy, with Abrams one of the show's executive producers. Film Divider now reports that Sir Anthony Hopkins has been offered the role of Dr Ford, the man in charge of the new Westworld, »

'Ring 3' Gets a Director, Jordan Talks 'Fantastic Four', 'Mockingjay' Trailer News and More

18 July 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Paramount Pictures is moving forward with The Ring 3 nine years after The Ring 2 disappointed so greatly. At the helm will be F. Javier Gutierrez who's also attached to direct The Crow reboot, which has had trouble getting off the ground. No word on whether or not Naomi Watts will return for another go 'round, but I highly doubt it considering the project is being targeted as a prequel. THR Speaking with MTV, Michael B. Jordan discussed the upcoming The Fantastic Four reboot in which he'll star as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and said: "We have been pretty much in our own world, that's really the only way we could get a project like this done. It is so massive, so many moving parts, so many moving pieces, things are changing every day...The script is evolving, you make on set decisions on the fly, things are always constantly changing. »

Duncan Jones hopes sci-fi thriller Mute will be his next film after Warcraft

17 July 2014 1:06 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Director Duncan Jones has been trying to get his Blade Runner-esque sci-fi thriller Mute made for a long time, and at one point was considering turning it into a graphic novel. But in a recent tweet, Jones said he wants to take another crack at Mute after completing work on his upcoming Warcraft. Thinking about what film I want to try and do after Warcraft. May give Mute one more push before I put it on the "Don Quixote" shelf. — Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) »

Duncan Jones Says He May Try To Make His Passion Project ‘Mute’ After ‘Warcraft’

16 July 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Kubrick had his “Napoleon” opus, Jodorowsky couldn’t conquer "Dune," Orson Welles couldn’t venture into “Heart of Darkness” and Terry Gilliam is still tilting at windmills in his hopes to mount “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” (which he may or may not make next year). Almost every filmmaker of repute has a passion project he couldn’t get off the ground (here’s a recent feature The 25 Greatest Movies Never Made). Duncan Jones, the filmmaker behind the underrated sci-fi pic “Moon,” “Source Code,” and the upcoming adaptation of the “World Of Warcraft” video game (now just titled “Warcraft”), has one too. Following the Sundance success of “Moon,” Jones tried to mount a “Blade Runner”-ish sci-fi project set in Berlin called “Mute.” But the movie, at the end of the day, was really more of a thriller and mystery in a Hitchock-ian vein with a futuristic milieu to »

Duncan Jones Wants to Make Mute After Warcraft

16 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Duncan Jones is currently in post-production on his fantasy epic Warcraft, and now he's thinking about what his next project might be. According to a recent tweet he sent out, he's looking to try and get his sci-fi project Mute into development. This is something he first talked about doing over four years ago.

"Thinking about what film I want to try and do after Warcraft. May give Mute one more push before I put it on the "Don Quixote" shelf."

The filmmaker admitted in the past that the movie is a hard sell, but I hope that there's a studio and financier out there that sees the potential. I'd like to think Jones will have a little more clout now that he has Warcraft under his belt. The concept has been likened to Blade Runner and the story follows a "woman whose disappearance causes a mystery for her partner, »

Look: Exclusive Artwork Visuals For Indie Sci-Fi Thriller ’2088′

15 July 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This time last year our interest was peaked for upcoming futuristic thriller 2088, and you can check out that teaser trailer by clicking here. It’s been made by Steven Ilous, a man who’s worked on the visual effects for Smi Entertainment and been part of the team that gave us The Polar Express and The Matrix sequels.

That teaser showed us a part of the world he’s creating that was taken from the viewpoint of a Police Car-cam in a future where there is a Non-Human Crime Division, and you also get an insight into the non-humans that are committing crimes. These exclusive artwork visuals show us the hard work from some very talented souls on the visual development team for 2088. Ilous told Thn that they’re ‘striving to make a film that not only feels unique, but lived in…‘ and also very interesting that they’ll »

Harrison Ford's 7 Greatest Roles

13 July 2014 6:58 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Legendary actor Harrison Ford Turns 72 today, and in his impressive career he has been responsible for developing two of the most iconic movie characters in American pop culture.

To celebrate the man who created so many characters we all desperate wished we could be growing up – and honestly still kind of wish we could be – we take a celebratory look at Harrison's seven greatest roles.

#7. Dr. Richard Kimble – The Fugitive

Ford plays a man wrongly convicted of his wife's murder who – due to random circumstance – escapes from custody in a frantic effort to find the real killer and clear his name. All the while, he's hunted down by Us Marshall Tommy Lee Jones, which would be terrifying for anyone.

Best Quote: "When I came home, there was a man in my house. I fought with this man. He had a mechanical arm. You find this man. You find this man."

Why It Worked: Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes

11 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There are a few science fiction franchises out there that are generally considered to be untouchable and above almost any reproach; classics, in every sense of the word. Never mind that some of them may have been diminished, watered down, or even ruined throughout the years, thanks to Hollywood's obsession with unnecessary spin-offs and prequels/sequels galore. But no matter how diluted certain franchises may have eventually become, the originals still manage to stick with us for any number of memorable reasons. Star Wars, Star Trek, the Alien franchise, Close Encounters, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, and E.T. are probably among the first sci/fi movies to jump to mind. But I believe there's a strong case to be made for Planet of the Apes.  This is probably one of the more underappreciated epics that has ever come out of this specific genre of movies.

The HeyUGuys Interview: Simon Merrells on Judas Ghost

10 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Stepping out of the haunted village hall for a break from a dance with the supernatural, Simon Merrells took the time to rendezvous with HeyUGuys to discuss his foray into horror with Judas Ghost. Probably most recognised for his role on TV’s Spartacus: War of the Damned in which he played the villainous Crassus with brutal pomp, Merrells is a regular face on both the big and the small screen.

During the course of our brief conversation he shared with us how he discovered his love of performance, and storytelling, as well as his early memories of horror’s most famous monsters and authors. Whilst reflecting on filmmaking as a musical journey, along with the fortunes of the modern short film he invited us inside the village hall to discuss his one location supernatural horror.

Why a career in acting? Was there that one inspirational moment?

Sci-fi movies often dazzle audiences with imaginative interpretations of the future, mind-blowing visuals, and spooky, reality-skewing twists -- but there's little to celebrate about the genre's onscreen mistakes. Or is there?

Ridley Scott developing David and Goliath movie

10 July 2014 1:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming hot on the heels of the first trailer for his next film Exodus: Gods and Kings [which you can see here], Variety is reporting that filmmaker Ridley Scott is lining up another biblical epic with an adaptation of the David and Goliath story.

According to the site, 20th Century Fox has hired Jonathan Stokes to begin work on a script on behalf of Scott’s production outfit Scott Free and Exodus partner company Chernin Entertainment, which will reportedly revolve around David’s post-Goliath time as the King of Israel.

At this point, it’s unclear whether Scott has any plans to direct; his next directorial offering is said to be The Martian with Matt Damon, while he also has Prometheus 2 and the Blade Runner sequel on his slate.

Why Sci-fi Based Superheros Can be Solid Films

9 July 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The role of ComicBook films expands every year. They fill vast genres and pull off more than the simple "Person in tight spandex" aspect so many people give them credit for. Now these films have managed to center on mystery,  adventure, and even intergalactic threats. Sci-fi films as whole have existed for quite some time, and some films have even become iconic. If it's not 'Alien' it's 'Blade Runner'. And if it's not those two then it's 'The Thing'. Of course when it boils down to it all comic book based films are rooted in the world of science fiction. But this article's main focus is on those comic properties that share heavy-ties to the final frontier. "I love the science fiction genre because there is always so many endless possibilities! It is a limitless genre and can be fun playing around with otherworldly ideas." - Laura Mennell »

New Posters for Upcoming Film Exodus: Gods and Kings

8 July 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ridley Scott, director of great films such as Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, and Black Hawk Down has set his sites on directing a film of Biblical proportions.

Yes, you heard me right.  Ridley Scott is going back to his roots as a church goer and is directing the story of Moses, the adopted son of the current Pharaoh, and his fight to free the Israelite nation from slavery.

As a Christian I am always looking for a good Biblically based movie but find them always falling short due to artisit licensing so I am really praying that he does the Christian, and Jewish world a solid and stick to exactly what transpired so many years ago.

Yahoo! got an exclusive look at the new movie posters depicting Moses, played by Christian Bale, and Pharaoh Ramses, played by an unrecognizable Joel Edgerton, in a grayscale, accenting their bronze attire.  Personaly I kinda like the look, »
