Willem Dafoe interview: Murder On The Orient Express, White Sands, Clear & Present Danger

Simon Brew Nov 6, 2017

Willem Dafoe chats to us about Clear & Present Danger, Murder On The Orient Express, White Sands and our feet.

An odd start to an interview as I walked into a comfy room to talk to Willem Dafoe for a bit. We ended up talking about feet, specifically that mine were big. He sought to assure me that my feet were fine, to try and make me feel better about myself. There’s a measure of a man for you.

According to Variety, director Phillip Noyce (Clear and Present Danger, The Quiet American) is set to helm Killer 10, a World War II action-adventure film from Thunder Road Pictures and Arclight Films.

The project, scripted by Paul Staheli (Guardians of the Tomb) and Justin Monjo (Jungle), follows “a gang of expat criminals who are coerced into a suicide mission behind enemy lines to destroy a game-changing chemical weapon being developed by the Nazis and the Japanese.”

“Arclight has been developing this fantastic script for five years and working to frame a story that will have great relevance and huge commercial and cultural impact in both China and the rest of the world,” said producer and Arclight CEO Gary Hamilton, who came up with the original concept. “The ensemble film will feature five movie stars from China and five from the U.S. and Australia to deliver the strongest possible talent for a global audience.

‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’ Trailer: John Krasinski Brings the Action in First Full Spot for Amazon Series
Jack Ryan may not be quite the international figure James Bond has become, but the analyst-turned-field agent has taken on almost as many forms over the years. After first appearing in the pages of Tom Clancy’s “The Hunt for Red October” in 1984, Alec Baldwin originated the onscreen character in the 1990 film. Then came the Harrison Ford era of “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger,” before Ben Affleck (“The Sum of All Fears”) and Chris Pine (“Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit”) stepped in for solo stints.

Now, it’s John Krasinski’s turn, and the former “Office” star is looking to leave a lasting mark in “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.”

Has technology done fatal damage to the techno thriller?

Simon Brew Oct 10, 2017

In the era of fast computers and fast internet, how can the techno thriller cope?

This article contains a spoiler for Mission: Impossible.

There’s a moment in the midst of Brian De Palma’s terrific Mission: Impossible film – the best one of the series still for me – where Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt has fished a floppy disk out of a bin. It’s been dumped there by Jean Reno’s duplicitous character, believed it not to contain the missing half of the Noc list. The Noc list that’s the MacGuffin for the movie, that Hunt and his Imf team are trying to stop falling into the wrong hands.

As it happens, it’s an old-fashioned switcheroo that’s been done, and the disk in the bin does contain the Noc list information. And whilst I didn’t appreciate it at the time, I do wonder if Mission: Impossible sat,

The Essential Harrison Ford

In the build up to the release of Blade Runner 2049 [read our review here], Tom Jolliffe looks at the essential films of the key cast, starting with Harrison Ford

A long, varied and fine career has seen Ford become iconic in two franchises in particular (and indeed the upcoming reprise of Rick Deckard could well make that another).

Throughout the 80’s he became firmly established as the ultimate blockbuster icon. No one has quite hit such iconic and consistent status as Harrison Ford. We’re talking Han Solo and Indiana Jones. One beloved franchise character is something every star dreams of, but to get two, on top of all the other great roles he’s had? That’s astonishing.

So in celebration of Ford, and in no particular order, here are the five films that need to be watched to best appreciate the man’s gifts and star power.

Phillip Noyce set to direct 'The Devil’s Brigade'
Foresight Unlimited handles international sales on action-thriller set to begin filming in France end of this year.

Foresight Unlimited has announced that Phillip Noyce, director of Salt and The Bone Collector, will direct the Second World War action-thriller The Devil’s Brigade.

The Devil's Brigade centres on the true story of Davie Berman, the only Jewish member of the Luciano mob, who is requested by the Us military to help turn the tide of events against the Germans in Italy.

In organising a team of Sicilian Cosa Nostra to work with the Americans, he almost single-handedly drives the Germans out of the southern region of Italy, and returns to America as a decorated hero. Moshe Diamant will produce.

‘Jack Ryan’: Amazon’s TV Series Is Inspired by the Harrison Ford Movies, Debuts March 2018
Even though the new Amazon adaptation, “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” uses the author’s name in the title, it’s more of a symbolic gesture than denoting strict adherence to the past. After all, the eight-episode series isn’t based on any of Clancy’s books. But it is inspired by the franchise’s impressive past.

“It’s an original story, so it’s not an adaptation of any of the novels,” director and executive producer Daniel Sackheim told IndieWire. “But I think it’s inspired in the same way as the Harrison Ford movies.”

Speaking after the Director’s Guild of America panel at Saturday’s Television Critics Association press tour, Sackheim confirmed that the series, starring John Krasinski as the titular hero, will premiere in March 2018 on Amazon.

Akiva Goldsman producing Rainbow Six adaptation, Ryan Reynolds wanted for lead

According to Deadline, Akiva Goldsman (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, The Dark Tower) has signed on to produce an adaptation of the Tom Clancy bestseller Rainbow Six as part of his new deal with Paramount Pictures.

The site reports that Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has held talks with the studio about taking on the role of John Clark, a former Navy Seal who is named head of Rainbow Six, an international counter-terrorism task form. Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) are currently penning the script, and the plan is that should Rainbow Six prove a success, it would then be followed with an adaptation of the Clark origin story novel Without Remorse.

The character of John Clark originated in Clancy’s Jack Ryan novels, and his twice appeared on the big screen before, with Willem Dafoe taking on the role in Clear and Present Danger and

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Deadline has reported that “loose talks” have commenced with the Deadpool actor to play Clancy’s Mercenary Hero Ex-Navy Seal, John Clark – In the novel, Clark, becomes head of an international task force to combat terrorism.

However, it is expected that ‘Without Remorse’ will be the next to be adapted in the Clark series of stories as the character has already been portrayed by Willem Dafoe and Liev Schreiber in both Clear and Present Danger and The Sum of all Fears.

Rainbow Six: Ryan Reynolds top choice for adaptation

Simon Brew Jul 13, 2017

The Tom Clancy book Rainbow Six is heading to the movies - and Ryan Reynolds is on the list to star.

Rainbow Six may have become a series of best-selling and popular videogames thanks to UbiSoft, but their core still lies in a novel by the late Tom Clancy. The sizeable book focuses on the character of John Clark, who was introduced in Clancy’s Jack Ryan novels (and we saw played on screen by Willem Dafoe in Clear And Present Danger and Liev Schreiber in The Sum Of All Fears).

A movie adaptation of Rainbow Six is now in the works, and it’s being overseen by Akiva Goldsman. Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec have been hired to try and fit the book into a two hours-or-so movie, and Paramount – which is backing the project – would subsequently look for more John Clark movies.

Very early talks

Action packed new trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Scott Davis

Summit Entertainment and Millenium Films has today unveiled a brand new trailer for their anticipated action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which you can view in the player below!

The new film stars Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool, Life) and Samuel L. Jackson (Kong: Skull Island, Avengers: Infinity War) and thus far the marketing has been making a few loving pokes at the classic 1992 film The Bodyguard including utilising the poster and Whitney Houston’s famous song “I Will Always Love You” to add to the “fun” aspect of the film.

The second trailer, however, goes all out on the action front as well as a whole host of R-rated humour for which Reynolds and Jackson are dab hands at. In the film, Reynolds plays the world’s leading bodyguard and is offered a new job: guarding one of the world’s leading hitmen (Jackson) – but, as you would have expected,

Sons of Anarchy Spinoff Casts Breaking Bad Fan Favorite

  • LRM Online
One of the great guilty pleasures of AMC's long-running Breaking Bad series were the tremendously complex and consistently unpredictable villains. Bryan Cranston's joyously dark alter-ego Walter White was continually pitted against ruthless adversaries, such as Giancarlo Esposito's Gus Fring and Jonathan Banks' Mike Ehrmantraut, but for my money the show's most-inspired and lethal villain will always be Tuco Salamanca, as played by veteran character actor Raymond Cruz.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cruz, who also plays Tuco in a semi-regular role on the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, has just been cast on the upcoming FX Network series, Mayans Mc, which is itself a spin-off of FX's Sons of Anarchy. This new series takes place after the events in the Sons of Anarchy finale, focusing on biker activities along the California/Mexico border. Cruz's character is Che "Padre" Romero, a hardened member of the Mayans Mc

The erotic thrillers that followed Basic Instinct’s success

Simon Brew Feb 3, 2017

When Basic Instinct hit big, Hollywood went hunting for more erotic thrillers. Er, it found some. Includes Kevin Spacey with odd hair.

When a movie hits big out of the blue, it’s unwritten Hollywood law that the imitators aren’t too far behind. That’s why, after American Pie brought Porky’s-esque sex-tinged (late) teen comedies back to prominence in 1999, the box office was flooded with similar fare for years after. The Blair Witch Project, meanwhile, hit out of nowhere, and found footage horror is only now dying away. The late Wes Craven, meanwhile, wryly noted just how quickly Hollywood had cashed in on the success of 1996’s Scream, when spoof Scary Movie popped out the year after.
