Aiming for a resurgence of his long career as an action star, Steven Seagal has come on board “Cypher” at Aldamisa Intl.
Aldamisa topper Sergei Bespalev and Seagal are producing the $25 million project, targeted for an April launch of production. The project has been quietly unveiled at the American Film Market with preliminary discussions about international sales.
Seagal will portray a special forces operative who — frustrated with the bureaucracy of war — goes rogue and tries to exterminate terrorists being protected by the government.
Seagal has written the script. No director is attached.
Seagal began his adult life as an Aikido instructor and broke into show business in 1988 with “Above the Law” and saw his career peak with “Under Siege” in 1992. Other credits include “On Deadly Ground,” “Under Siege 2: Dark Territory,” “Exit Wounds” and “Half Past Dead” in 2002.
Since then, most of Seagal’s films have been direct to video »

The Equalizer, 2014.
Directed by Antoine Fuqua.
A man believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and has dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when he meets a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can’t stand idly by – he has to help her.
There’s a scene towards the end of The Equalizer where the stakes should be at their highest. The bad guy is about to kill an innocent man and, right on cue, in walks our hero, Denzel Washington. Water pours down from the sprinkler system overhead, he has a nail gun raised and poised to pull the trigger. The entire scene takes place in slow motion, the thunderous and obnoxious score blasts out, and I believe »

What in the world happened to Rick Castle?
ABC’s Castle and its characters raised that question — a lot — throughout its Season 7 premiere, and left us still grappling with it even after celebratory champagne flutes were clinked and Rick and Kate readied for their first night together in… a while. Up first, a recap of the twisty, turny hour, and then I’ll take inventory of the clues we have to work with, thus far.

After two not-exactly-surprising celebrity heave-hos kicked off Season 19 in ho-hum fashion, Week 3 of Dancing With the Stars found our remaining 11 celebs getting high… on Hollywood.
In tonight’s “Movie Night” extravaganza, the ballroom was transformed using classic themes from the silver screen – with very mixed results – and also showcased the delightfully welcome guffaws (if not dancing expertise) of this week’s guest judge, comedian Kevin Hart. (Apparently poor Len Goodman already needs a break from Julianne’s yammering. I kid! I kid!)

Go figure. Once Upon a Time‘s decision to incorporate the buzziest Disney characters in a great while paid off in the ratings on Sunday night, as the Season 4 premiere – drawing 9.4 million total viewers and a 3.4 demo rating, and earning a “B+” grade from TVLine readers — surged 11 and 31 percent versus last year’s opener.
That marks Once‘s best numbers since Nov. 4, 2012 (Season 2’s “Tallahassee”).

If you’d never seen Revenge before, Sunday’s season premiere was a pretty good time to join the party — and not just because every character literally recapped (out loud) what they’ve been up to for the past three years.

The ABC sudser has essentially hit the reset button on itself: Former Hamptons queen Victoria is now powerless, Daniel’s selling everything but his pretty face, Jack’s sporting a spiffy new cop uniform and Emily is living large at Grayson Manor (new name Tbd) with nary a Sharpie in sight. »
The first picture from The Forger was revealed back in February as Solution Entertainment Group was looking to build some buzz around the film and now it's looking to have its world premiere at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival in the Gala selection and with the announcement comes three new pictures. Starring John Travolta, Christopher Plummer and Tye Sheridan, the film tells of a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief, Ray Cutter (Travolta) who arranges to buy his way out of prison to spend time with his ailing son, Will Cutter (Sheridan). Ray and his father, Joseph Cutter (Plummer), must come together to carry out one last big job for the syndicate who financed his early release. The picture is directed by Philip Martin (Exit Wounds) and I can't lie and say this seems like anything more than a direct-to-video, mezzo mezzo family thrill-ride. That's not to say it's a bad thing, »

With great comedy, thrilling drama and fantastically intricate plots comes tragedy: a loyal, but often unwelcome companion of Doctor Who. The Doctor’s never very far away from losing absolutely everything. That’s the curse of travelling in a little blue box across all of time and space, visiting the most dangerous places that the universe has to offer, and taking people that he’ll outlive by centuries.
While no fan enjoys watching the Doctor suffer, there have been some beautiful moments in the show’s history that have moved us all to tears. It’s one of the less obvious facets of the show – we all tend to think of the adventure, the excitement and the wit – but Who can’t escape the fact that it revolves its cast members every couple of years; it was a whole six series into the revival that a showrunner didn’t get rid of the companion, »

As acquisitions and sales at the Berlin Film Festival continue, the first image and synopsis have been released for Philip Martin's The Forger. According to the synopsis, the movie" tells the story of a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief, Ray Cutter (John Travolta) who arranges to buy his way out of prison to spend time with his ailing son, Will Cutter (Tye Sheridan). Ray and his father, Joseph Cutter (Christopher Plummer), must come together to carry out one last big job for the syndicate who financed his early release." I'm a bit confused by this synopsis. If you were an art prodigy, then wouldn't you commit counterfeiting instead of petty thievery? That's like being a guitar prodigy and deciding to play the slide whistle. Hit the jump for the image and press release. Here's the press release: Genre: Heist Status: Post-production Producers: Al Corley, Bart Rosenblatt, »

Lately John Travolta has been struggling as an actor, so much that he's lending his voice to a cheap animated film called Gummy Bear. But there might be some promise in his future still as we have a first look at The Forger, a new heist thriller being sold at the European Film Market right now. In the film John Travolta teams with Christopher Plummer and rising young star Tye Sheridan for a film about a father and son who must pull off a heist in order to pay a crime syndicate for paying for the son's early release from prison.

Another day and another first look at a new movie up for sale at the European Film Market. Today the movie is The Forger, directed by Philip Martin (The Call, Exit Wounds) and starring John Travolta, Christopher Plummer and Tye Sheridan (Mud, Tree of Life). The heist-driven picture tells the story of a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief, Ray Cutter (Travolta) who arranges to buy his way out of prison to spend time with his ailing son, Will (Sheridan). Ray and his father, Joseph (Plummer), must come together to carry out one last big job for the syndicate who financed his early release. Having never seen one of Martin's films I don't really know what to expect from him, but the cast is intriguing even if the plot sounds a little... ordinary. I can't, however, say my expectations are high for this one. I guess, however, »
