We've been hearing about a "24" movie ever since the popular television series was still on the air. Now comes word that 20th Century Fox is very serious about developing the film and is planning to begin shooting in April, to match Kiefer Sutherland's availability. Mark Bomback, the writer of the upcoming "Wolverine" sequel and "Total Recall" remake, is on board to pen "24," which will bring back Sutherland as government operative Jack Bauer. Unlike the show, the new movie will not be done in real-time and will conclude its story in two hours. The studio is currently in talks with directors and has about five helmers in mind. Tony Scott (Man on Fire, Enemy of the State) was previously attached, but has since dropped out. His replacement will be announced early next year. Click here to read more about "24." »
Director: Andrew Niccol
Running time: 109 minutes
Synopsis: In the not-too-distant future the aging gene has been switched off. To avoid overpopulation, time has become the currency and the way people pay for luxuries and necessities. The rich can live forever, while the rest try to negotiate for their immortality.
In Time director and writer Andrew Niccol has given us some unique cinema in his career including the cautionary, futuristic Gattaca and The Truman Show that questioned life and the western world’s ravenous thirst for celebrity culture.
In Time places us in a world where the aging gene has been altered. Borrowed from an idea from Logan’S Run, everyone lives to 25 but when you reach that age, a countdown begins that’s embedded in your lower arm and then you have one year left before you die. With In Time, »

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood in the fifth of a five part feature (read parts one, two, three and four)...
“Maybe the title of Space Cowboys  is a bit misleading because it is mostly about the pioneers of space,” stated Clint Eastwood when discussing the story about four former test pilots from the 1950s who decades later get an opportunity to go into outer space. “We were not really cowboys, but these men who did all the pioneering in the 1950s were going to the frontier of space in planes they were not sure could make it. They were being rocketed along on the ground faster than the speed of sound to see if the human body could take it, so I would say that the film is something of a homage to those gentlemen.” The action thriller with a production budget of $65 million stars Clint Eastwood, »
In Premium Rush, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a bike messenger that picks up a dangerous package that has him chased all over New York City. The result is a bit like Torque without the engine crashing into Enemy of the State. At least that’s what the trailer makes it feel like. This isn’t the first film from director David Koepp, even though he’s more well known as the writer of films like Jurassic Park, Death Becomes Her, Mission: Impossible, Spider-Man and two dozen others. His bread and butter is broad entertainment with flair. Cue applause from fixed-gear enthusiasts. What potentially sets this high concept apart is its cast. Gordon-Levitt is a hell of an actor, and he’s joined here by Michael Shannon playing (surprise) a bad guy and Jamie Chung playing (surprise) an attractive ex-girlfriend who gets him into the mess. Check it out for yourself: Parkour! On »

With Hollywood turning more of its attention to the world of graphic novels for inspiration, I'll cast the spotlight on a new comic book each week that has the potential to pack a theater or keep you glued to your television screens. At the end of each "Adapt This" column, you'll also find some thoughts from the industry's top comic creators about the books they'd like to see make the jump from page to screen.
This Week's Book: The Homeland Directive by Robert Venditti & Mike Huddleston
The Premise: When a leading researcher at the Center for Disease Control is framed for the murder of her partner, she finds herself on the run with a trio of rogue federal agents out to expose a vast government conspiracy.

If you haven’t had your coffee yet, don’t worry, Boomtron has the jolt you need, thanks to an adrenaline fueled cup of Lautner, Taylor Lautner, that is. The Twilight star’s new movie is called Abduction and it promises to be remembered right up there with pictures like Enemy of the State, The Firm and The Bourne Identity. Today we have a fantastic clip direct from the film just for you.
In the clip a no nonsense Sigourney Weaver seems to know more about the chaos that has become Lautner’s character’s life (Nathan Harper) when he discovers his parents…well, are not his real parents. I assume some mysterious bad guys are chasing him and his girlfriend, portrayed by The Blind Side and Priest actress (and soon to be Gimm Brothers: Snow White), Lily Collins. If the pair thought Sigourney would keep them safe or offer up answers, »

Blame Cowboys & Aliens. When Disney ditched (or postponed) Gore Verbinski's pricey $250 million Johnny Depp remake of The Lone Ranger, set to shoot in New Mexico in October, the studio wasn't just applying the brakes to runaway costs. It was also just saying no to billion dollar producer Jerry Bruckheimer. He brought the studio four lucrative--but increasingly expensive--Pirates movies, among other hits like Crimson Tide, Armageddon, Enemy of the State, National Treasure and Remember the Titans. And he also delivered costly disappointments Prince of Persia, G-Force, Pearl Harbor, King Arthur and Sorcerer's Apprentice. But he was applying Pirates-level costs to a period western. Bruckheimer and Verbinski will presumably reduce the scale of their ambition to a mere $200 million and get back to work. »
Mere hours after Ridley Scott announced his come back to Blade Runner, the younger brother Tony Scott (Enemy of the State, Man on Fire) has attached to a new project and it’s the remake of Sam Peckinpah’s 1969 western classic The Wild Bunch. The notion of remaking The Wild Bunch first came up in January [...]

Tony Scott has directed 16 feature films since making his debut with The Hunger in 1983. He's had big hits (Top Gun, Revenge, Enemy of the State), big flops (The Last Boy Scout, The Fan, Domino), and few certifiable stand-outs like Crimson Tide and True Romance. But the man had some success a few years back with his remake of the classic heist thriller The Taking of Pelham 123 -- so he just might be heading back to reboot territory. According to Deadline, Ridley Scott's longtime producing partner / little brother wants to tackle a new version of (wait for it) Sam Peckinpah's classic anti-western The Wild Bunch. As you probably know the 1969 Walon Green-penned film tells the story of several aging archetypes of the "old west," and how they plan to rustle up one...

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have proudly shown off their home, which was designed to "create an infinite cycle" of their love. The Hollywood couple opened the doors of their California house, which they share with their three children, to Architectural Digest. Designed by architect Stephen Samuelson, the Calabasas retreat covers 25,000sq ft and looks out onto a picturesque man-made lake. Decorated with African, Middle Eastern and Indian art, it features a meditation room for the 39-year-old Hawthorne actress and a recording studio, where their 10-year-old daughter Willow recorded her hit single, Whip My Hair. "The idea was no dead ends… to create an infinite cycle that represented what Jada and I hoped for our love," the 42-year-old Men In Black star says of the curved property, which he was inspired to create after filming the 1998 movie Enemy Of The State with Gene Hackman. He adds: "Everything needed to be done by hand. »
One of Hollywood's most famous showbiz families lives in a gargantuan estate not in Bel-Air, but in Malibu. Dad was inspired to build the 25,000-square-foot adobe-style house for his wife and three kids after visiting a former costar's home in New Mexico. Can you guess which multitalented clan lives under this big roof? And yes, you read that right—25,000 square feet! It's Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and their children, Willow, Jaden and Trey, the Men in Black star's son from his first marriage. Will hired architect Stephen Samuelson to design the home after seeing what he did for his Enemy of the State costar Gene Hackman. "Gene loves Sante Fe," Will says »
With the world engrossed by the turmoil of the News of the World newspaper’s demise amidst a whirlwind of phone-hacking allegations (which I’m sure many of you agree was done in the most despicable of manners to people who were thoroughly undeserving of such treatment), I began thinking about the giant conspiracy amongst News International big wigs surrounding their underhand actions.
Conspiracy theories have long been at the forefront of popular culture: from the mysteries surrounding Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana’s deaths to elements of the politics of virtually every regime to have even an ounce of power, we quite simply love them. It’s no surprise, therefore, that the film world has picked up on this and produced hoards of films with a conspiracy theory narrative. So as we all theorise about The News of the World, sit back and enjoy the ten best conspiracy theory films out there! »

This week, most of the good stuff is stuffed into tonight's telly lineup, but unless you have a PVR or dual telly setup, you'll may need to make some tough choices.
At 9:00pm tonight, Friday June 17th, the eleventh series of 8 Out Of 10 Cats returns on Channel 4. That's right. We did say, eleven series of the comedy panel show, hosted by Jimmy Carr, have aired. How time flies when you're laughing, eh? The first of nine episodes looking into and poking fun at statistics and the opinions of the public on current happenings in the world sees Sean Lock return to his role as team captain and welcomes fellow comedian, Jon Richardson, at the opposing table. Carr's intros are always a highlight, and the »
Mark Millar has announced his departure from Marvel Comics' titles to focus on his Millarworld creations. The Superior writer will end his ongoing work on the publisher's comics and dedicate his time to his creator-owned projects. "Well, I just finished the dialogue on my last ever script for Marvel," Millar wrote on Twitter. "It was a lot of fun, but I'm full-time on Millarworld as of today. "Huge thanks to all the guys I worked with on Ultimates 1&2, Civil War, Old Man Logan, Enemy of the State, Ultimate X-Men, 1985, etc, etc. It's been an amazing experience and I'm stealing all the best ones to work with my on creator-owned anyway."

Barry Pepper is one of those actors who you just can't help but notice, not only because of his fantastic chops as an actor, but because he keeps popping up in high-profile projects. After cutting his teeth in small TV roles in the early 90s, director Steven Spielberg cast him in his World War II classic Saving Private Ryan, and his movie career was off and running. He appeared in Enemy of the State and The Green Mile before earning an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of New York Yankees legend Roger Maris in the HBO movie 61* in 2001. His latest role is that of the villainous Lucky Ned Pepper in the phenomenal Western True Grit, which hits the shelves on Blu-ray and DVD on June 7 (clickHere »
Danny Trejo is the king of trash cinema: and the man with the most grizzled face on modern screens skates the fertile ground between B-Movie greats and downright D-quality garbage on a regular basis. And as if to prove the point, he is about to strut his stuff in Eyeborgs, an independent sci-fi horror that bills itself as a mesh of the techno-anxiety of I, Robot and Enemy of the State and the creature horrors of Gremlins and Critters.
I’ve just been sent the trailer, and I couldn’t resist sharing it. So look beyond the leap, and feast your eyes on some seriously imbalanced film-making.
Here’s the frankly bonkers synopsis for what promises to be a definite filmic curio:
In the wake of another devastating terrorist attack, the United States government passes the “Freedom of Observation Act, a law requiring all communications and surveillance cameras to be constantly monitored for national security. »

"Thor" brought all of its signature lightning to bear upon moviegoers this weekend, lighting up the box office with an impressive $66 million debut. Though some had their issues with Marvel's latest superhero release, many of the actors and writers lurking about Twitter-Wood expressed their overall satisfaction with the Asgardian adventure.
While it was "Thor" that dominated the box office, Mother's Day took plenty of deserved attention for itself. Several Hollywood players were celebrating the holiday for themselves, while others offered some dirty (but good-natured) jokes instead of well-wishes.
Plus, who didn't much care for "The Beaver"? The answer to that and more rests past the jump.
I'm @roundhoward and this is Twitter-Wood for May 9, 2011.
"Thor" Rules, Part 1: @SethGreen Nice job this weekend big guy #AvengersAssemble http://twitpic.com/4ve7ob
