It seems almost every actor has a burning desire to direct at some point, and for Chris Evans, it's a gig he's been itching to get for a while now. "I’ve seen movies with the best scripts and the best actors on the planet, and they make shitty movies because they’ve got shitty directors. Something about having the responsibility to tie all of these pieces together, and being able to speak coherently to all of your different artistic people and all of these different departments… I just want to do it so badly." he told AICN in 2011 about his desire to get behind the camera. And now he's going to. Deadline reports that Evans will star in and direct "1:30 Train," a movie he had been slated to appear in with another helmer previously, before it fell apart. Produced by McG's Wonderland Sound And Vision and penned »

Chris Evans' schedule is rather packed nowadays thanks to his commitments to Marvel Studios and his role as the star-spangled hero Captain America, but in between the upcoming Captain America sequel The Winter Soldier and Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron Evans is taking a break to do something rather surprising: make his directorial debut. Deadline is reporting that the Boston-born actor is prepping to step behind the lens to make 1:30 Train, a romance in the vein of Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise movies. Based on a script by Ron Bass, who wrote the Oscar winning screenplay for Rain Man as well as Snow Falling on Cedars, Stepmom, My Best Friend's Wedding and many others, the film tells the story of two strangers with extreme conflict in their lives who are drawn together one night in Manhattan. In addition to directing, Evans will also be starring »
In 'Top of the Lake', a young girl takes her fate into her own hands by walking into a beautiful lake among the mists of New Zealand's most stunning landscape. Brutish, unreconstructed men come into contact with wounded but defiant women. There is currently no happiness, only mystery. Jane Campion's back in business.
The good news is the distinctive filmmaker has joined the merry throng of big names who've realised that the most creative, satisfying work is to be found in the world of television, and brought us a drama set among the swirling mists of her native New Zealand's South Island. Of course, 't'hey're' already asking if this will do for Queenstown what The Killing's done for Denmark...

Greetings from the apocalypse! This week some Texas Republicans tried to implement a dastardly plan but were narrowly defeated by plucky State Senator Wendy Davis. Hopefully direct-to-video kings The Asylum can make a "White House Down" knockoff called "Texas State Capitol Down" for DVD shelves two weeks from now, starring Debbie Gibson as Wendy Davis. Yay!

Ah Roland Emmerich, only you have the antidote to the summer blues. The German who's cinematically blitzkrieged more than one of our national landmarks several times over is taking down 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue once again in "White House Down." He's enlisted Channing Tatum as an Aryan super soldier to rescue President Ray Charles (Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx) from terrorists intent on burning Washington D.C. to the ground.

What Lisa Schwarzbaum said: “It is one thing to take on a mix of genres and say he’s going to mush up the western and the slave stuff and the spaghetti western…but I’m finding there are fewer and fewer ideas behind it… »

Despite what your thoughts may be on his filmography, director Scott Hicks‘ next move is always a difficult one to predict. After breaking out with prestige dramas like Snow Falling on Cedars and Shine, he moved to the general rom-com territory with No Reservations before taking a more mature stab at drama with The Boys Are Back and then dropping [...] »
