Ed Harris joins Westworld in villainous role

11 August 2014 10:50 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Westworld finds its baddie in the shape of the mighty Ed Harris...

As production looms for the pilot episode of HBO’s televisual Westworld adaptation, the cast continues to grow. When you have to create a whole creepy theme park and fill it with people, a large cast is to be expected.

Last week we brought you the news that Jeffrey Wright (Boardwalk Empire), Rodrigo Santoro (both 300 movies and Dominion), Shannon Woodward (Raising Hope), Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Hercules), Angela Srafyan (The Good Guys) and Simon Quarterman (The Devil Inside) were all joining Anthony Hopkins on the show. Cyclops himself, James Marsden, also joined the ranks yesterday (although Film Divider had revealed his involvement some time ago).

Ed Harris has now been added to the mix, too. The actor, famous for roles in A Beautiful Mind, The Abyss, Apollo 13 and many more, will take on the part of The Man In Black, »

Ed Harris is heading to TV in a villainous role.

The “Apollo 13″ and “The Abyss” actor has signed on to join HBO’s “Westworld” in key evil role, Variety has confirmed. He joins an already-announced cast of Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and Shannon Woodward.

Harris will star as The Man in Black, described as the “distillation of pure villainy into one man.”

J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bad Robot’s Bryan Burk are producing the adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film, which followed a robot malfunction that led to terror in a theme park. “Person of Interest’s” Jonathan Nolan will produce and direct the Warner Bros. Television one-hour drama, and co-wrote the pilot with exec producer Lisa Joy. Kathy Lingg serves as co-executive producer, with Athena Wickham as a producer, David Coatsworth as co-executive producer and line producer and Susie Ekins as co-producer.

The role is a return to HBO for Harris. »

Quiz: Natural Disaster Movies

4 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Everybody loves a good disaster flick. There’s just something about watching the world (often literally) fall to pieces from the comfort of a movie theatre or couch that we just can’t get enough of.

This week, another addition to the disaster genre makes its way onto the big screen with Into the Storm, a found-footage film involving a group of high school students that capture the horror of a massive tornado. The film stars Sarah Wayne Callies (“The Walking Dead”), Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) and Jeremy Sumpter (“Friday Night Lights”).

This isn’t the first film to chronicle the events surrounding rogue tornadoes. 1996’s Twister set the bar for tornado movies, but we think Into the Storm might give it a run for its money based on the wickedly intense trailer.

Other noteworthy disaster films include The Day After TomorrowThe Perfect Storm, and Apollo 13 (yes, we »

Now's the time to get moonstruck. Forty-five years ago Sunday, Apollo 11's Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on another world.

You can join the celebration, without needing to travel to the launch site at Florida's Kennedy Space Center, where Nasa will honor Armstrong on Monday with a renaming ceremony of the historic Operations and Checkout Building. Both Aldrin and Michael Collins, the Apollo 11 command module pilot who orbited the moon, will be there. At the very least, »

Brian Grazer Is Hustling to Keep Imagine Entertainment Relevant in Ever-Changing Hollywood

16 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s odd to see Brian Grazer chillin’.

But there he is — the frenetic mega-producer — lounging in his sprawling backyard in Santa Monica, Calif., overlooking the Riviera Country Club, munching on a breakfast of turkey bacon and eggs over easy, drinking fresh-pressed carrot juice with a touch of ginger.

Not surprisingly the zen moment quickly dissolves.

“Oh shit, can I text Mick Jagger back?” Grazer asks a reporter, suddenly bolting upright, his gold-and-white leather encased iPhone vibrating. The two are co-producing “Get On Up,” the James Brown biopic that debuts Aug. 1. Jagger’s on tour in Europe, and they’ve missed a chance to talk. “He’s so polite and British,” Grazer confides. “You have to be like, ‘How are you this morning?’ and take a beat, and then get on with it.”

Grazer prides himself on deciphering what makes a person tick. He’s spent the past three decades peppering industry titans, »

Following his surprisingly fresh and entertaining racing drama, Rush, Ron Howard has given his ever-faithful fans the first glimpse of his follow-up effort, Heart of the Sea.

Straight from his Twitter account, the Apollo 13 director shared an initial behind-the-scenes look at the post-production stage.

'The Help' Director Set to Helm 'In the Event of a Moon Disaster'

25 June 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While Apollo 13 chronicled a failed trip to the moon after Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on Earth's orbiting satellite, a new film called In the Event of a Moon Disaster will focus on what might have happened if the Apollo 11 mission has turned out to be a disaster. When Pulitzer Prize winning author William Safire passed away in 2009, a speech was discovered amongst his papers called "In Event Of Moon Disaster." Safire was also a speech writer for President Nixon in 1969, and the speech was written with the intention of being delivered if Apollo 11 had a tragic end. So how will a film be centered around the speech? Well, the screenplay, which made the Black List back in 2011, is inspired by the speech to create a fictionalized alternate reality of the events, likely playing out what would have happened if the moon landing never happened and Apollo 11 failed. »

He’s been an astronaut, a figment of John Nash’s imagination, and even Jackson Pollock, but in his new movie Snowpiercer, Ed Harris plays Wilford, the man at the head of the train, making sure things run smoothly aboard his eternal machine. I caught up with Harris to talk about his new film, which hits theaters later this week, on June 27th. Together, we chatted about what drew him to the script, what it’s like working with Chris Evans, if and when Harris will be making a return to the director’s chair, and his advice for up-and-coming actors.

Could you talk about, in working with such an international crew,  and especially the director, and the two other main characters are Korean, so what was like a big discovery for you?
