Mission: Impossible 5 Has Found Its New Female Lead

2 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Over the last 18 years, the Mission: Impossible franchise has lined up an impressive list of actresses to play opposite Tom Cruise' Ethan Hunt. On that list are Emmanuelle Béart, Thande Newton, Michelle Monaghan, Keri Russell, Maggie Q, and Paula Patton - and now the latest female lead has been found for Mission: Impossible 5. Word has come down that Rebecca Ferguson, the lead of the BBC series The White Queen, has taken a key role in the next chapter of the blockbuster franchise. Set to be directed by Christopher McQuarrie and based on a script by Iron Man 3's Drew Pearce, Mission: Impossible 5 doesn't currently have an official plot synopsis, but is expected to bring back the stars from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol - including Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and the aforementioned Paula Patton (not to mention possibly Ving Rhames and Michelle Monaghan).

Alec Baldwin And Rebecca Ferguson In Talks For Mission: Impossible 5

3 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Public interest in the Tom Cruise-anchored Mission: Impossible franchise had started to wane after the lackluster second installment, but 2011′s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol did a tremendous job of breathing new life into the blockbuster series by bringing in The Incredibles director Brad Bird and introducing appealing characters played by Jeremy Renner and Paula Patton. So, now that casting for Mission: Impossible 5 is finally getting under way, we’re definitely interested in who’s joining Cruise’s super-spy Ethan Hunt for his next adventure.

Luckily for fans, the main cast of Ghost Protocol, including Renner, Patton and Simon Pegg, is returning, and today brings news that two more terrific actors have been brought into the fold. Deadline reports that 30 Rock alum Alec Baldwin, who previously played another iconic spook in Tom Clancy adaptation The Hunt for Red October, is circling a role in the film, while Variety is »

'Mission: Impossible 5' Eyes Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Alec Baldwin is in negotiations to join Tom Cruise in Paramount Pictures' Mission: Impossible 5, while The White Queen star Rebecca Ferguson has emerged as the top choice to play the female lead.

If a deal is finalized, Alec Baldwin will play a high-ranking CIA officer who oversees the division lead by Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt. The role is reportedly similar to Laurence Fishburne's Theodore Brassel in 2006's Mission: Impossible III.

No formal offer has been issued to Rebecca Ferguson, but the actress is reportedly the top choice of both Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie. Jessica Chastain was offered the role back in April, but she ultimately passed because she could not commit enough time to the extensive shoot. Sources indicate that the studio wants the actress to start training in the near future, which would go all the way through to production, scheduled to wrap in January. »

Alec Baldwin in Talks to Join Tom Cruise in ‘Mission: Impossible 5′

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alec Baldwin is in negotiations to join Tom Cruise in Paramount and Skydance’s next installment in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise.

Jack Reacher” helmer Chris McQuarrie is directing this installment. Cruise, Skydance’s David Ellison and J.J. Abrams are producing.

Plot details are being kept under wraps but sources say Baldwin’s character would be a high-ranking CIA officer who oversee Cruise’s division, similar to the role Laurence Fishburne had in “Mission: Impossible III.” Drew Pearce penned the script.

The studio is still looking to find the female lead after Jessica Chastain passed on the part. The pic is set to bow on Christmas Day 2015.

Baldwin shouldn’t have a problem filling a position of authority after receiving strong reviews as Matt Damon’s commanding officer in “The Departed.”

He is repped by CAA and N2N Entertainment and can be seen next in Cameron Crowe’s untitled film »

Robin Thicke & Paula Patton: Are They Done Forever? They Still Don't Know

11 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Paula Patton and Robin Thicke's future together is anybody's guess—even their own. "We honestly don't know," Robin's dad Alan Thicke told me yesterday while promoting Unusually Thicke, his pseudo-reality show on Tvgn. "I'm sure they don't really know either. Robin's put it all out there. He's put it hard on the table and poured it into his music." "He's suffering," Alan's wife Tanya said. "He's in pain. There's no doubt that they love each other. She loves him and he loves her." The Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol actress and the singer split in February after nine years of marriage. Robin has been on »

New "Star Wars" To Get IMAX Sequences

8 July 2014 4:12 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The official Twitter account for J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot production company today posted a photo that seems to confirm a longstanding rumor - that at least part of the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII" is being shot with IMAX cameras.

Abrams directed "Star Trek Into Darkness" and produced "Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol," each of which boasted approximately half an hour of their final runtimes using footage shot with IMAX cameras.

The shot below, taken on the Abu Dhabi set doubling for Tatooine, at least indicate that some of the scenes set on that backwater desert planet will boast the larger scale format.

‘Grand Central’, starring Tahar Rahim and Léa Seydoux, gets a UK trailer

8 July 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 2009 french feature A Prophet gave many international film fans their first look at Tahar Rahim, who garnered critical acclaim for his performance, going on to roles in movies such as Love and Bruises and The Past. Léa Seydoux has, over the course of her career, garnered her own fans and acclaim in movies such as Inglourious Basterds, Midnight in Paris, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and Blue is the Warmest Color. Fans of both performers were thus intrigued to learn that their next project would see the duo work together. Titled Grand Central, the film is directed by Rebecca Zlotowski, who co-wrote the screenplay with Gaëlle Macé. A UK trailer for the feature, which has yet to gain Us distribution, has now been released, and can be seen below. Sound on Sight was able to see the film at Gff 2014, and our review can be read here.

Fourth Beverly Hills Cop Will Take Place In Detroit During The “Coldest Winter On Record”

7 July 2014 5:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like Axel Foley is getting back to his roots for the upcoming Beverly Hills Cop, which was once titled Beverly Hills Cop 4 but is now going by the shorter title (hardly surprising, given how long it’s been since Eddie Murphy last played Axel). In a statement announcing the approval of a film incentive for Beverly Hills Cop, the Michigan Film Office stated that the movie would be rolling cameras in Detroit and even provided a new synopsis.

There’s nothing too revealing about what the Michigan Film Office found out, but there is one interesting tidbit that makes me wonder just what writers Josh Appelbaum and Andre Neme (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) have in mind for Beverly Hills Cop:

The newest installment of Beverly Hills Cop, from the ultimate “fish-out-of-water” franchise, takes Axel Foley, who has been living a cushy life as a Beverly Hills Detective, »

Movie Review – Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

6 July 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Transformers: Age of Extinction, 2014.

Directed by Michael Bay.

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Victoria Summer, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Titus Welliver and Li Bingbing and featuring the voice talents of Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, John Goodman, Ken Watanabe and Mark Ryan.

Synopsis:

An automobile mechanic and his daughter make a discovery that brings down the Autobots – and a paranoid government official – on them.

During my screening of Transformers: Age Of Extinction I could hear a man a few rows away from me talking out loud. I looked over and saw he was telling the kid behind him to stop kicking his chair; the kid didn’t hear him at first so he spoke a bit loud and the message was understood. It dawned on me at this point that this brief dialogue between two strangers had captivated my attention in a way the action on screen had failed »

Christopher McQuarrie Talks ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ and the Unexpected But Necessary Narrative of Filmmaking

3 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

At the start of Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow our hero, Major Bill Cage (Tom Cruise), is a coward. He’s more than ready to run from a fight he knows he’s not equipped for. That’s not the kind of hero we expect from a blockbuster, but it’s the type of subversive choice we should expect from screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, who had a hand in bringing Hiroshi Sakurazak’s graphic novel, All You Need Is Kill, to the big screen. A protagonist unwilling to help save the world isn’t the only fresh idea in Edge of Tomorrow. Even when Cage becomes a fierce soldier, he’s still no match for the bad-ass helicopter-blade-wielding Rita Vrastaski (Emily Blunt). She is the hero of this movie. Vrastaski drives the story. Cruise, once again playing a role a lot of movie stars would pass on, consistently pushed for his co-star to be this film’s »

Success Came Too Late, But ‘Jack Reacher’ Sequels Are Still Possible

1 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Once Lee Child fans got over Tom Cruise not having the exact physicality of Jack Reacher, they realized Cruise nailed the most important part of the character: his spirit. By the end of writer/director Christopher McQuarrie‘s adaptation you wanted more adventures with the tiny brawler. The 2012 film managed to do that without any loose threads or blatant sequel flags, but instead ended on a note that says everything about the titular character. Reacher is a rare blockbuster protagonist: he knows who he is, there’s no self-doubt, and, best of all, he has a good sense of humor. Make no mistake, the character spawned a blockbuster hit. The film only cost $60m to make and earned over $218m worldwide, before going on to make a killing on home video. The character doesn’t face costly world-ending scenarios, so this is a series that could continue without an astronomically advancing price tag. On »

Movie adaptation of Thief videogames in development

30 June 2014 10:56 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Thief series of videogames is making its way to the movies...

News

The latest videogame series to jump across to the big screen looks like being the Thief franchuse. The Tracking Board reports that Vertigo and Prime Universe are developing a film of Thief, which is set to be produced by Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh.

Centred around an intriguing hero in Garrett, the Thief games actually seem quite a good fit for a film, with the usual caveat that they'd need to get the tone and the story right. With stealth very much the key weapon in the games, if all concerned can resist the urge to turn this into an action festival, and instead focus on more Mission: Impossible-esque tense set pieces, then this could be a lot of fun. Heck, get Brian De Palma in to direct it.

There's no timescale that we know of »

What to Expect from The Expendables 3

Tom Jolliffe on what to expect from The Expendables 3

Two films into the Expendables franchise, fans eagerly await the arrival of the third instalment. Thus far we have come to expect certain things. Firstly of course, lots of stuff gets blown up. That’s a given considering the cast which is a group of 80’s and 90’s action Gods. Then there’s the referential humour, that in the second film in particular was almost non-stop. Did the first two films entertain? For many yes. Did they fully deliver on the promise? Not really. The balance has never quite been right. The scripts always felt a bit jumpy and in many cases some key cast members felt wasted (namely Mr Van Damme in number 2).

Now, expectation and the end result can often be two very different beasts. Many felt upon the first announcement of the original Expendables film that this »

Selfies, Jennifer Lawrence and the modern movie star

27 June 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The movie star isn't a thing of the past - it's just a changing phenomenon in the face of the web, Ryan writes...

Feature

Taken at this year’s Academy Awards, a photograph of a huddled group of Hollywood actors quickly became the most shared image in social media’s short history. In this single shot - taken by Bradley Cooper and posted by Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres, who are surrounded by such familiar faces as Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt, we get a glimpse of how the modern movie star has changed in the past 20 years.

The movie star phenomenon began in the early 20th century, when actors such as Mary Pickford and Charlie Chaplin became famous enough to secure ticket sales by themselves. Hollywood studios initially resisted the rising phenomenon of the movie star with all the strength they could muster; with stardom came a demand for things like higher salaries, »

'Beverly Hills Cop 4' To Shoot In Detroit

26 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Eddie Murphy’s Beverly Hills Cop reboot has received a $13.5 million rebate from the Michigan Film Office to film the forth film in the series in Detroit.

The fourth film in the Beverly Hills Cop series will, once again, star Murphy’s Detroit cop, Axel Foley.

The movie, an instant classic, spawned two sequels, Beverly Hills Cop II (1987) and Beverly Hills Cop III (1994).

Production on Beverly Hills Cop 4 is predicted to generate $56.5 million in in-state revenue from production costs employ around 350 Michigan workers during production. As incentive, Michigan approved a 24% rebate of $13.5 million.

“We are excited to welcome Axel Foley and the Beverly Hills Cop franchise back to Michigan. This project will highlight locations throughout metro Detroit that speak to the city’s heritage while »

Tom Cruise Rumored To Cameo In Star Wars: Episode VII

25 June 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Some movie rumors are clearly, obviously untrue, but you can't help but be amused by them. And because of the veil of secrecy regarding Star Wars: Episode VII - No Sleep Til Dagobah, it's easy to let your mind wander as to what exactly is going on at J.J. Abrams' UK set. Did they give Harrison Ford a robot leg? Is Chewbacca going to have a dance sequence? And is Tom Cruise going to appear in the movie? Will he dance with Chewbacca? The Mirror "reports" that Tom Cruise indeed might be in line for a cameo appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII. Apparently Cruise has spent the last week in London (probably promoting Edge Of Tomorrow) and has found time to swing by Pinewood Studios and chat with old chum J.J. Abrams, discussing a possible cameo. This connection is plausible because Abrams directed Cruise in Mission: Impossible »

Mission: Impossible 5 Filming Inside The Houses Of Parliament?

25 June 2014 6:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been three years since Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol hit theaters, but Tom Cruise’s latest starring vehicle, sci-fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow, was good enough that it actually got me thinking about the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5 for the first time in a good long while. Today, we’ve learned something about the upcoming fivequel that will no doubt excite the franchise’s British fans.

According to the sometimes-reliable British newspaper The Sun, Mission: Impossible 5 will be the first film that has ever been allowed to shoot scenes within the British Houses of Parliament. According to the newspaper:

“MI5 will feature numerous well-known locations in London but the Houses of Parliament is clearly the biggest coup. Tom Cruise will obviously feature heavily in the scenes. You can imagine the writers are excited about what stunts they could pull off inside the Commons.”

23 June 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) More often than not, Simon Pegg is associated with fan-favorite genre franchises like "Star Trek" and "Mission: Impossible," or his action-packed comedy team-ups with Edgar Wright.
