In Serbia Network reported recently that Brosnan was in Serbia working on November Man. This makes sense as shooting is set to begin in Europe on May 20th.

Exclusive: Paradigm has secured some good clients of late as filmmakers have followed agents like Robert Bookman into the fold. Here’s a surprise: the agency has signed Roger Donaldson, director of such films as The Bank Job, The Recruit, Thirteen Days, No Way Out, and Cocktail. He also wrote and directed The World’s Fastest Indian. Donaldson was in play when his CAA agent, Martin Spencer, left to join Jeff Berg’s upstart agency Resolution. Everyone expected the filmmaker to follow, but he instead signed with recently minted Paradigm agent Ken Stovitz. Stovitz had been Donaldson’s agent until he left to join Will Smith and James Lassiter’s Overbrook Entertainment, but clearly that relationship with Donaldson remained strong. »

According to the Arthur C Clarke quote that opens Dark Skies: “Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe, or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.” Judging by the rest of the film, the second option is far more terrifying. We called writer/director Scott Stewart for a chat about the film, and why aliens are the new ghosts…
Minor spoilers for Dark Skies lie ahead. But nothing massively spoiler-y, hence we've left them in.
You wrote and directed Dark Skies – how did you come up with the idea for the movie?
It came from a few different places. I grew up in the suburbs of northern California in the 70s and 80s, and that was formative for me, »
"They say you're a hard man. It's a hard city." After the absolute garbage that was Parker, this trailer for Hummingbird should get fans of Jason Statham excited. In what looks to be a gritty and grounded thriller, Statham seems to be in rare form as a damaged ex-special forces soldier named Joey Jones who is homeless after going on the run from a military court-martial. It feels very similar to Dead Man Down, but thankfully, it doesn't have the ludicrous action that Statham has taken on enough in The Transporter and Crank (though those films are fun). It could be Statham's best film since The Bank Job in 2008. Watch it! Here's the first trailer for Steven Knight's Hummingbird, originally from Yahoo UK: Eastern Promises writer Steven Knight makes his directorial debut with Hummingbird, from a script he wrote himself. The story follows a damaged ex-special forces soldier named »

Last week, the nameless former CIA op was breaking into a bank in Moscow, but why was he in a former Soviet state? After Frank Giordino, former head of the CIA, was found out as one of the bad guys, Agent Jones (Aisha Tyler) and Xiii (Stuart Townsend) discovered that he had a safe deposit box in Moscow. They were intent on getting to the box before Giordino, and that required assembling a team to crack open a bank vault and taking a trip to Russia.
The action on Xiii is moving at a break-neck pace. Catch the excitement of a high-stakes heist when last week's episode, "The Bank Job" airs again tonight at 11pm Et/ 8pm Pt. As action packed as the end of the first season is, it's nothing compared to Xiii.2. Catch the season premiere March 29th at 10pm Et/ 7pm Pt.

I have a longstanding respect for and really enjoy Dwayne Johnson, so I went into Snitch expecting not to hate it, 2/5 stars. I know that ain’t much, but it didn’t look particularly substantive, so that was the baseline (though “inspired by” true events, if that’s all that’s said, it often still qualifies as fiction).
Then a funny thing happened, one that in over 2700+ titles hasn’t occurred quite this way before: the stars just kept climbing, step-by-step, hand over fist, as the film progressed. I could actually feel it… “hey this isn’t bad at all”… “you know, this is pretty good”… “whoa, good job”… “that was really well done”… and so on, half-star by half-star until here we are at 4/5. I think I’m as surprised as some of you may be!
Let’s get one thing out of the way at the start: the trailer misleads. »

Filmmaker and effects guru Justin Dix has won the backing of Us studio Fox International to make his new thriller, Declassified, and is eyeing up Australia as a potential shoot location later this year.
The deal follows the success of his debut horror-thriller Crawlspace, which had its international festival premiere at the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival in October 2012. A positive reaction there from Fox International.s head of development led to several meetings and a deal with the studio, which is currently being inked.
.They want to have a future together which is great...,. Dix said from La where he is currently holding Declassified story meetings with Fox.
He said Fox is keen to shoot the film in the Us Fall (September - November) and Sydney.s Fox Studios Australia looms as a likely location. The film would then qualify for the 40 per cent Producer Offset tax rebate.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters got off to a modest start on Friday, though that was good enough for first place at the start of a quiet weekend at the box office. Meanwhile, Parker had a poor debut even by star Jason Statham's low standards, while Movie 43 is officially on its way to becoming one of the year's biggest bombs. Hansel and Gretel opened to $6.025 million at 3,372 locations on Friday. That's a bit below last Summer's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter ($6.25 million), but above 2005's The Brothers Grimm ($5.2 million). The audience was 55 percent male and 57 percent were 25 years of age or older, and they awarded the movie a "B" CinemaScore (impressive, considering its Rotten Tomatoes score is currently 14 percent).For the weekend, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters should wind up in first place with between $15 and $17 million. Last weekend's winner Mama fell to second place with an estimated $3.8 million. »

Jason Statham is no stranger to movie franchises, starting with The Transporter movies and continuing with The Expendables series, which has a third installment in the works that is looking to add even more action movie stars. Statham's latest, the action thriller Parker, opens today, and could be yet another franchise for the British action star. After all, the character of Parker has been the subject of 24 novels from the late author Donald E. Westlake, which means that there could be plenty Parker movies if audiences respond positively.
A career criminal, Parker sticks to a moral code that means he doesn't steal from the poor or hurt innocent people but has no problem resorting to violence if someone deserves it (see both Lee Marvin and Mel Gibson's portrayal of the character in 1967's Point Blank and 1999's Payback, respectively, for more info). In Parker, the anti-hero is betrayed by »

Sitting down with Jason Statham to talk about his latest movie is a treat for any action fan: If you're female, the fact that he greets you with "darling" and calls you "love" doesn't hurt. In his new film, "Parker," he plays a thief who's double-crossed by his partners (MIchael Chiklis and Clifton Collins, Jr.) and must track them down in Palm Beach. There he relies on the know-how of local real estate agent, played by Jennifer Lopez. The tough-guy role fits the star of "The Transporter" and "The Expendables" like a glove He spoke with Moviefone about always upping the ante on his stuntwork and that, at 45, he's still proud to do all his own stunts. However, his least favorite part of making the film was having to wear a harness for one risky balcony scene that he nearly recreated in the hotel room in the middle of this interview. »
