Seth Rogen Has The Munchies For 'Pineapple Express 2'?

22 December 2011 9:18 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Did Saul finally clean up and go to school for architecture? Did Dale become a talk radio DJ? Did Red survive his massive blood loss after getting shot a hundred times or so?

All these burning questions are going to become a blaze if the sequel to "Pineapple Express" ever comes to be. Since 2008's custom bong made out of action and marijuana took a big hit of box office green, a followup has become a chronic talking point whenever star Seth Rogen is interviewed, as he was yesterday by E! Online at the Alzheimer Association's Hilarity for Charity benefit.

"I don't think it's so precious that I wouldn't want to ruin it with a sequel," hinted Rogen. "So yeah, I would be [into it]. We talk about it. We joke around about it."

Re-teaming Rogen and the ever-busy James Franco at this juncture in their careers is going to be a »

Zaillian Keen On Directing "Timecrimes"

20 December 2011 9:25 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Oscar-winning scribe Steve Zaillian, whose most current work is adapting the script for David Fincher's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" which opens tonight in the United States, says he's considering stepping into the director's chair on the remake of Spanish cult sci-fi thriller "Timecrimes" set up at Dreamworks Pictures.

Nacho Vigalondo's original follows a man who repeatedly goes back in time an hour in an attempt to alter the events of a crime. Zaillian came onboard to write the remake back in January. While no director was set at the time, David Cronenberg had previously been linked as a potential candidate. The Canadian helmer however dismissed the talk the other month.

Zaillian tells Coming Soon that "That's something I might direct but I don't know. We have to cast it, but it's a tricky one, because I want to make it really low budget. I don't want »

Amazonas Film Festival: Saturday, or The Forbidden Dance as Interpreted By Four Pale Americans

15 November 2011 1:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

*Fsr traveled to Manaus, Brazil to attend and cover the 8th Amazonas Film Festival. See all our coverage here.* I’m sitting in a small van and staring at a Brazilian police officer standing a few feet away with a submachine gun in his hands. He’s not alone. The van starts up and soon our motorcade is weaving its way through the city streets of Manaus, from the hotel and commercial area through the graffiti filled downtown, heading towards the Amazonas Opera House. Police officers on motorbikes escort the caravan along, rushing past at tremendous speed to block off the intersections ahead before repeating the process once all the cars have passed. The experience was more than a little surreal, and I can only wonder what the throngs of pedestrians watching the caravan of tinted windows speed by were thinking. As my movie-addled mind is prone to do I immediately started thinking of similar scenes from »

Phil Noyce Makes An "Arrangement"

25 October 2011 7:15 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Phillip Noyce ("Salt," "Clear and Present Danger") has signed on to direct the thriller "The Arrangement" for Mandate Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story explores racial issues as it centers on a married couple – a white husband and a half-white, half-black wife – whose unity is tested when another man, who happens to be black, takes a liking to the wife and begins to create problems.

Brian Tucker penned the script which explores ideas that "forces audiences to question themselves” according to a Mandate rep. »

Phillip Noyce To Basically Remake 'Indecent Proposal' With Thriller 'The Arrangement'

25 October 2011 6:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Having delivered a solid international triple again with the Angelina Jolie spy actioner "Salt," and a hit TV series with ABC's "Revenge," Australian helmer Phillip Noyce is back on top, but the director of "Dead Calm" and "Clear and Present Danger" hasn't gone as far as to pick a follow-up yet. He was linked to submarine thriller "Hunter Killer" before Antoine Fuqua took over, flirted with the drama "Our Wild Life," is attached to a remake of "Bloodsport" for some reason, and also eyed up the thriller "Above Suspicion," as well as putting his name to romance "Timeless," which landed… »

Phillip Noyce to Direct Thriller The Arrangement

24 October 2011 3:20 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Phillip Noyce is set to direct the thriller The Arrangement. THR reports that Noyce has inked a deal to helm the pic for Mandate Pictures, with a script written by Brian Tucker. The story centers on an interracial married couple—the husband is white while the wife is half-black half-white—“whose unity is tested when another man, who happens to be black, takes a liking to the wife and begins to create problems.” There are no other details on the plot at this time, but Tucker is said to “write post-Obama stories that force audiences to question themselves,” so it certainly sounds like Noyce will be tackling some racial themes. The Clear and Present Danger director was previously attached to the submarine action-thriller Hunter Killer but he recently dropped out. Noyce is poised to direct the romantic sci-fi drama Timeless with Liam Hemsworth in the lead role, but it’s »

Liam Hemsworth In Talks For Phillip Noyce’s ‘Timeless’

14 October 2011 11:17 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

What a difference the past ten months have made for Liam Hemsworth. He was largely just known as Miley Cyrus’ boyfriend in The Last Song, at the beginning of 2011 – now he’s readily recognized as the younger brother of Thor star Chris Hemsworth, the actor who’s playing Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games movie, and a young addition to the cast of The Expendables 2.

Hemsworth may even land his own starring vehicle in the near future – seeing how he’s entered negotiations to headline Timeless, the next project from director Phillip Noyce (Clear and Present Danger, Salt).

Moviehole has the scoop on Hemsworth being in talks for Timeless, which is being produced by Sunil Perkash and scripted by ...

Blu-ray Review: Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan in Patriot Games & Clear And Present Danger

4 October 2011 11:42 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As the star of two of the most successful film franchises of the ‘80s, Harrison Ford was the obvious choice to take on the role of Jack Ryan for director Phillip Noyce’s Patriot Games, released on Blu-ray last week. Following on from Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of the character in The Hunt For Red October, where Ryan was very much a supporting role to Sean Connery’s Russian submarine captain, producers required a more bankable star to fill Ryan’s boots for a story focussing more on Ryan and his family as he takes on a terrorist splinter group.

Based on Tom Clancy’s international best-seller, Patriot Games follows former CIA analyst Jack Ryan as he travels to London for a vacation with his wife (Anne Archer, Fatal Attraction) and child (Thora Birch, American Beauty). Meeting his family outside Buckingham Palace, Ryan is caught in the middle of a »

Antonie Fuqua Set For "Hunter Killer"?

29 September 2011 2:31 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Antoine Fuqua ("Training Day," "King Arthur") is in final talks to direct "Hunter Killer" at Original FIlms and Relativity Media reports Variety.

An adaptation of the novel "Firing Point" by Don Keith and George Wallace, the story follows a team of Navy Seals in a submarine sent on a mission to Russia to stop a renegade admiral from launching a coup.

"Salt" and "Clear and Present Danger" director Phil Noyce was slated to helm but left the project last month. Jamie Moss, Arne Schmidt and John Kolvenbach wrote the screenplay and shooting kicks off this Winter. »

Revenge TV Review – ABC

21 September 2011 3:39 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

ABC's Revenge feels like something that was initially developed for ABC Family more than anything else. Even among shows like Desperate Housewives, it seems like it would be more at home alongside Pretty Little Liars and The Secret Life of the American Teenager. But, I probably don't mean what you think I mean by saying that.

The show follows Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp), and her integration into society among the elite of the Hamptons. She's fabulously wealthy, attractive, and filled to bursting with charm. Nevertheless, the in-crowd of this social circle is not exactly something you can walk right into, no matter what you're obvious qualifications.

Of course, things aren't going to be that simplistic, not least because we need some referent for the show's title. It turns out that Emily is actually the daughter of a man that this particular group of rich people ruined many years ago, »

Blu-Ray review: The Quiet American – Superior Character Piece Given Terrible HD Transfer

20 September 2011 9:21 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Perhaps we require roles like Thomas Fowler’s to be played by veteran actors; we have to be able to read the murky past all over his face. He is an aging journalist stationed in ’50s Vietnam during the First Indochina War. He has been around too long and is too weary to have any ideals left; they’ve been replaced by cynicism and uncertainty. He understands the problems in Vietnam, but he doesn’t pretend to have a solution; he probably knows the counter-argument to everything one could put forward. He is married to a woman in England who will not give him a divorce; he is in love with a twenty-year-old Vietnamese girl. If he keeps pursuing stories in Vietnam, his paper won’t recall him to London, and he’ll be able to stay with her.

In Phillip Noyce’s 2002 adaptation of Graham Greene’s 1955 novel, Fowler is played by Michael Caine. »

[Tiff Interview] Willem Dafoe and Director Daniel Nettheim on ‘The Hunter’

16 September 2011 6:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

On press duty for their new film The Hunter at the Toronto International Film Festival, director Daniel Nettheim and Willem Dafoe have been discussing Tasmania, Julia Leigh’s source material, and their cinematic sensibilities. It’s a character-driven piece that showcases its star’s craft while also the exotic environment his job of capturing the last Tasmanian tiger brings (our review here).

Sitting down as part of a roundtable interview with two fellow Americans, an Italian, a Spaniard, a Chilean, and a German, the two were quite forthcoming and conversational when it came to sharing stories about their work to us. With discussions ranging from hunting verisimilitude to leeches and even economics, both Dafoe and Nettheim proved to be generous in their candor and very excited about their film.

The transcript from the roundtable follows.

Phillip Noyce Leaves Hunter Killer; Will The Lone Ranger Ride without Gore Verbinski?

22 August 2011 7:51 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We have a few director-related stories for you this morning.  First up, Moviehole is reporting that Phillip Noyce (Salt) has left the submarine action-thriller Hunter Killer.  Noyce had been officially on board since February, but apparently just realized that the story—which is about an American sub commander and a Navy Seal team that must rescue the Russian president and defeat a renegade admiral who’s attempting a coup—was too similar to his previous films (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger).  He'll now turn his focus to the time-travel romance Timeless and newly-announced project, Above Suspicion, a thriller written by Chris Gerolmo (Mississippi Burning).  We previously reported that Noyce was also attached to a remake of Bloodsport, an adaptation of Tim Winton’s Dirt Music, and the drama Our Wild Life. Hit the jump for more intrigue revolving around The Lone Ranger. We previously reported that Gore Verbinski's »

Phillip Noyce bows out of submarine flick "Hunter Killer"

22 August 2011 7:30 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Bad news for fans of underwater warfare: director Phillip Noyce has dropped out of "Hunter Killer." The thriller is based on the upcoming novel from Don Keith and Navy vet George Wallace, and would have marked another return to the action format for Noyce. The director has successfully helmed explosive fare like "Salt" and two films from Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan franchise: "Patriot Games" and "Clear and Present Danger."

According to Moviehole, Noyce felt the material was "too close to other films he had made." The departure seems sudden given that the picture was expected to begin shooting in the next few months, so it's unknown what, if anything, changed in the script that may have affected his decision.

"Hunter Killer" "tells the story of an untested American submarine captain who teams with U.S. Navy Seals to rescue the Russian president, who has been kidnapped by a rouge general. »

Noyce has made his made his name directing high-octane political/action thrillers such as "Patriot Games," "Clear and Present Danger" and "Salt" and "Killer" was more of the same.  It's based on Don Keith and George Wallace's novel "Firing Point," and is more of an ensemble piece than Noyce's Jack Ryan and Angelina Jolie extravaganzas.  It has the delightful team up of a American sub commander and a Navy Seal team who must rescue the Russian president, defeat a renegade Russian admiral, and thwart his coup of the government.
