Jeff Bridges is set to take the lead in a story of a sizeable diamond heist....
One of the films being produced by Jj Abrams under his Bad Robot umbrella is Antwerp, a movie based on a Wired article by the name of 'The Untold Story Of The World's Biggest Diamond Heist'. Joshua Davis penned the article, and it's the story fo a 2003 burglary. You can probably guess where it took place.
The screenplay was originally being penned by Field Of Dreams' Phil Alden Robinson, but those duties have since been passed over to Doug Jung. Abrams will produce, but as of yet, no direct has been attached to the project.
It might just be getting its star though. The Tracking Board reports that Jeff Bridges is now in talks to take the lead role in the film, which Paramount Picture is backing. Good lead roles for Jeff Bridges? »

In addition to daily writings here on Dread, I also write for a fairly new website called iHorror, which I'm excited to report is making the move into feature film territory. Their first co-production is titled 10 Seconds to Run, and it'll only get made with Your help!
A joint production between Iyrus Entertainment and iHorror, 10 Seconds to Run is the story of a group of five friends driving to an electronic music festival. What was supposed to be a fun road trip ends up being a deadly mistake when they find themselves on a country road without cell and Gps service.
The friends become victims of a game that a few of the local backwoods residents like to play called "10 Seconds to Run." Players have 10 seconds to try to escape, and every new game has an added challenge to slow the victim down. The game is part of a bigger »

Six million dollars really isn’t a lot of money these days. Certainly not to Mark Wahlberg, who is reportedly in the frame to play technologically-enhanced Steve Austin in Universal’s cinematic reboot of The Six Million Dollar Man. For those too young to remember the simple thrills of 1970s escapist TV, Austin was an astronaut who was rebuilt as a sort of bionic warrior in a tracksuit after much of him was mashed up in a devastating accident. Austin’s powers in the series included an incredibly strong right arm, a robot eye and the ability to run super super quick.
The concept was last seen onscreen in Bionic Woman with Michelle Ryan (Merlin) and Katee Sackhoff (Oculus), itself a new version of a spin off from the original male-dominated show. (It’s also worth mentioning Sandra Bullock’s involvement in 1989 entry Bionic Showdown. ) Ryan’s update drew decidedly »

Writer-director Kevin Smith lived out a nerdy childhood fantasy last week, visiting the London set of J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. (He even posted a teary-eyed Instagram selfie to prove how amazing the experience was.) As The Hollywood Reporter notes (via Slashfilm), Smith opened up about the visit during a recent Q&A at the Neuchatel International Film Festival in Switzerland, gushing about the old-school, "tactile" world Abrams has created.
Star Wars Spinoffs We Want to See
"So we go to the set, and they're actually shooting – and »
Director J.J. Abrams has added a pair of newcomers to the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII in UK-based American actress Crystal Clarke and British actor and parkour practitioner Pip Andersen (see his Spider-Man ad here), both from an open casting call in which over 37,000 showed up in 11 cities across the Us and UK. There is wo word on what parts Clarke or Anderson will play in the film, as production takes a two week hiatus, allowing time for Harrison Ford to recover from a broken leg for which he had surgery back in mid-June. However, what you should note from today's announcement, the studio again confirms production is on track for the planned December 18, 2015 release, despite the silly rumors speculating otherwise. That being said, just because filming isn't taking place now, it has been going on for some time now and Kevin Smith, whose become more of a roaming »

Glenn here with this week's Tuesday Top Ten. Wikipedia tells this Australian that the Fourth of July, Independence Day, is a day usually celebrated with “fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions and political speeches and ceremonies.” Curious that they don’t include movies since, at least since 1991 when James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day premiered to one of the then biggest opening weekends of all time, the big July 4th blockbuster is an annual trend with the likes of Independence Day, the Transformers franchise, Superman Returns and seemingly anything starring Will Smith.
With the holiday this Friday, most lists of movies to watch over the long holiday weekend will feature masculine, almost brutish titles that celebrate America’s achievements in war and rah-rah bravura (The Patriot, Saving Private Ryan, Top Gun) or the coming of age of a nation and its people in almost gooey fashion (Field of Dreams, »

When it comes to America, the values, the principles, and ideals that we strive for are great. Freedom, liberty, truth, justice, happiness and the right stand up against tyranny are ideas that we can all believe in... but what about the stuff? The tangible things that distinguish this great nation from others are worth taking note of as well. That’s why we’re taking a moment, in honor of our great nation, to say “Thanks” to the movies that celebrate uniquely American cultural artifacts.
Hot Dogs — Father of the Bride
Bread has been around for tens of thousands of years and sausage too has been around for a couple millenia, but it was only in America that a hot dog could be created. And only an American comedy legend like Steve Martin could bring to the big screen the hot dog conundrum that has perplexed us all.

Yes, another day, another anniversary. But this one is quite noteworthy. Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" turns 25 on Monday. It is a film I first saw when I was young, but I wasn't at all ready for it. I saw it again in film school and noticed I had grown with it, but it still whipped up complex feelings (as only the best films can). I've revisited it a number of times over the years and come to cherish it as one of the greatest pieces of cinema ever conjured, but the Academy frankly seemed like it was holding its nose just to give it the two nominations it received a quarter century ago. Kim Basinger had the right idea when the night of the Oscars came. "The best film of the year is not even nominated [for Best Picture] and it's 'Do the Right Thing,'" the "Batman" star said, »

You’ve heard of the ‘McConaissance’. Well now another movie star considered past his best makes a high profile return to the big screen, as Kevin Costner toplines kinetic thriller 3 Days To Kill.
Though associated with a sequence of megabuck flops, Costner has been one of Hollywood’s true risk takers. It paid off in Oscars for Dances With Wolves (1990), where he did everything except sing the theme tune. Roles in hits such as The Bodyguard (1992) followed. But after Clint Eastwood’s A Perfect World (1993) came Waterworld. Throwing money at a sea-based knock-off of Mad Max was never going to set the box office alight, more give it a drenching. The Postman (1997) actually had Costner singing the theme tune and that failure appeared to round off his career as a big leading man. Yet the movies never forgot about Kev and in recent years he’s been rediscovered, with prestigious »

When Michael Haffner reviewed Draft Day here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote: “A sign of a good sports film is if the audience enthusiastically cheers during a film like a crowd at a live sporting event. That’s exactly what happened when I went to see Ivan Reitman’s Draft Day. The theater was into every second as the film counted down the minutes to the big event.” (Read the rest of Michael’s review Here)

Kevin Costner is back on the big screen this week in action-thriller 3 Days to Kill. It's not a classic Costner film by any stretch (he's essentially playing Liam Neeson in Taken), but the film is arriving right in the middle of a career revival for the actor who headlined big hits two decades ago. With Man of Steel, Draft Day, Jack Ryan and 3 Days all under his belt over the last 12 months, we're experiencing something of a Costnaissance (to swipe a term coined for Matthew McConaughey).
As a screen star Costner was never blessed with dynamic range or the ability to transform himself like a Daniel Day-Lewis can, but what he can deliver is a performance of earnestness and honesty that connects with an audience. He is frequently the glue that holds a film together, a movie star with the everyman appeal of someone like James Stewart. If anything, Costner »
Twenty-five years after Field of Dreams was released, castmembers Kevin Costner, Dwier Brown and Timothy Busfield reunited at the Dyersville, Iowa diamond over Father's Day Weekend to reminisce about the film's production and reflect on its legacy. "I don't know how this film worked—honest to God, we're just sitting here talking intellectually about this movie," Costner told NBC's Bob Costas in a Today segment that aired on Thursday. "But you know, movies aren't intellectual, they're emotional, and this one rang a bell."

In case you haven't heard, The Fault in Our Stars is kind of a sad film. The reaction across the pond (where the film has been out for a couple of weeks) has essentially been one long, drawn out ugly-cry, to the point where Slate have even released a handy guide to keeping your eye make-up intact.
Even the movie's stars Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff and Laura Dern aren't immune, as they admitted in our video interview. We also asked them what other films have made them cry, which sparked a discussion back in the office about the most effective tearjerkers of all time.
Below, Digital Spy staffers reveal the films that are guaranteed to leave them a weeping mess.

If you build it, they will come. Kevin Costner paid a visit to the site of Field of Dreams in rural Iowa on Friday, June 13, 25 years after the smash movie's original release. "For me, it represented a magical story about, you know, listening to a voice you maybe didn't want to listen to," 59-year-old Costner told the Des Moines Register of the 1989 flick. "[The movie does deal] with that biblical thing of men and their sons and maybe not getting along," Costner explained. "You don't [...] »
