Sam Jackson, Luke Wilson and Leslie Bibb Join ‘Meeting Evil’

31 December 2010 10:10 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Luke Wilson is set to return to the criminal ways that made him a star. We first got to know Wilson, as well as his brother Owen, as wannabe criminals in Wes Anderson's Bottle Rocket and now Luke's about to team up against the law again. He'll star in Meeting Evil alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Leslie Bibb, which sounds kind of like Falling Down meets Breaking Bad. Directed by Chris Fisher (S. Darko) based on a 1992 novel by Thomas Berger, Wilson plays a recently fired real estate agent who teams up with a stranger (Jackson) on a crime spree that reveals his dark side. Bibb plays Wilson's wife. Read more about it after the break. Meeting Evil is scheduled to start filming January 8 in New Orleans and is being produced by the Motion Picture Corporation of America, according to The Wrap.

Michael Andrews To Score Judd Apatow-Produced, Paul Feig-Directed Comedy 'Bridesmaids'

23 December 2010 9:06 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The name might not be familiar, but you've definitely heard his work. Michael Andrews has been tapped to compose the score for the upcoming Judd Apatow-produced, Paul Feig-directed comedy, "Bridesmaids." While he may not be as instantly recognized as Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer or James Newton Howard (yet) Andrews has composed for a number of notable films including "Donnie Darko," "Me And You And Everyone We Know," "Cyrus," and "Funny People." He most certainly got to know both Apatow and Feig back-in-the-day when he lent his skills to both "Undeclared" and "Freaks & Geeks." A comedy that we're greatly anticipating,… »

Blake Edwards Remembered, Bob Feller And 'Stargate Universe' Canceled In Today's Twitter-Wood

16 December 2010 2:24 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Writer-director Blake Edwards' death was felt in Twitter-Wood today. His films such as "Breakfast at Tiffany"'s and "The Pink Panther" influenced generations of Hollywood talent, and a few such actors and directors, including Edgar Wright, Steve Martin and William Shatner paid their respects with posts.

The sports world was sad as well, with Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller passing away; Brody Stevens honored his legacy, while yet even more distraught tweets reacted to news that "Stargate Universe" has been canceled on Syfy. Check out who's going to miss it down below.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is Twitter-Wood for December 16, 2010.

Happy Birthday, Vanessa Hudgens!

14 December 2010 6:30 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

It could be a bittersweet celebration for her, but Vanessa Hudgens shouldn't let anything stop her from celebrating her birthday today. The actress and singer is now 22 years old, and though she has plenty to celebrate, her relationship with "High School Musical" co-star Zac Efron just ended (though sources noted there was no real animosity and the pair will remain friends).

Besides her new singlehood, Hudgens has plenty to celebrate on her birthday. She has two upcoming films that promise to raise her profile profoundly and help her make the transition from Disney Channel staple to proper Hollywood leading lady (much in the same way that ex-boyfriend Efron did last year). In March, "Beastly" will finally hit theaters after a bit of a delay (it was originally supposed to hit in the summer — ironically on the same day as Efron's "Charlie St. Cloud" ended up dropping). "Beastly" tells a skewed »

Bradley Cooper Pushes Drugs in Limitless Viral Ad Campaign

9 December 2010 6:17 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Forget red and blue pills; the clear pill is the last drug you’ll ever need! At least that’s what Bradley Cooper promises in his new promo for Limitless. The ad looks remarkably like the all-too-common pharmaceutical commercials on TV, but it’s actually part of a recently launched viral marketing campaign for the upcoming film.

The picture — directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionist) — is an adaptation of Alan Glynn’s novel, The Dark Fields, which focuses on Eddie Morra (Cooper), a writer who stumbles upon a performance-enhancing drug. The drug, known as Nzt, allows Morra to “access 100% of his brain, learn new languages and conquer Wall Street.” All’s well until the downside of the drug starts to affect him, with side effects such as “paralysis, psychosis, brain damage and sudden death.”

Limitless also stars Robert De Niro, Abbie Cornish (Bright Star) and Anna Friel (Land of the Lost »

Humans Dress As Pandas So As Not To Frighten Baby Panda, Just Everyone Else

6 December 2010 11:54 AM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

Just an Fyi, your parents might have been pandas dressed in human suits when you were growing up. That is, if we subscribe to this model, wherein humans dress as pandas to care for tiny panda cubs before they are reintroduced into the wild. Reports Metro UK: The four-month-old cub is the first to be trained for reintroduction into the wild by the Hetaoping Research and Conservation Center for the Giant Panda in Wolong National Nature Reserve in Sichuan province, China. But for the baby panda to be reintroduced successfully, the cub’s environment must have absolutely no human influence, which is where the panda outfits come in. So you’re saying that these suits are less traumatizing than actual humans? I suppose you’re the scientists so-gah! That is one step removed from Frank the Rabbit in Donnie Darko. “Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit?” “Why are »

Kevin Smith’s ‘Hit Somebody’ Finds Lead; ‘Red State’ Updates

30 November 2010 8:41 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Kevin Smith is an overachiever; with Red State wrapped, cut, and in the promotional stage (via official podcast), he is simultaneously already at work on his next feature Hit Somebody. On the latest edition of one of his many shows Hollywood Babble-on, Smith officially announced the lead for his hockey comedy: Nicholas Braun. [Collider]

Braun, in addition to appearing in Smith’s Red State, also played the Joseph Gordon-Levitt role in ABC Family’s TV adaptation of 10 Things I Hate About You and is also one of the leads in Disney’s upcoming movie Prom (which actually looks surprisingly good).

Now if any of you have been following Hit Somebody, you may remember that Seann William Scott was originally tapped to star, but dropped out to do a different hockey movie, Goon, when Smith went to work on Red State first. Braun is quite a 180 from Scott; he’s younger, he’s not as well known, »

Richard Kelly Wants to Make Southland Tales Prequel

29 November 2010 5:40 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Director Richard Kelly revealed that the reason "Southland Tales" only grossed $370,000 at the box office and has a 36% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes is because audiences were viewing the last three of six chapters of a graphic novel and may have had trouble understanding what they were watching. Kelly (Donnie Darko, The Box) recently spoke to Kevin Smith, stating that he already has a script for a "Southland" prequel and is now trying to figure out a way to develop it. He said: "I knew that people wouldn't understand 'Southland Tales' unless they read the graphic novels. But I still to this day feel like 'Southland Tales' is an unfinished film, and if it takes me until I'm in a wheelchair breathing oxygen, I'm going to figure out how to advance the graphic novels further . whether its trying to put them together as a low budget animated film, whether »

Early 'Red State' Buzz Promises Interesting Sundance Premiere

29 November 2010 3:12 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

With the line-up for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival arriving this week, we'll finally know if Kevin Smith's Red State will get its world premiere at the snowy festival as is expected. I'm already interested in seeing Smith's new political horror film that will apparently be unlike anything he's directed before, but it sounds like there's a lot to look forward to. SlashFilm posted a quote from director Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko, The Box) who commented on Red State during a Smodcast recording, saying some very enthusiastic things, including that if it does show at Sundance, "I might actually come up to just see the audience's response." Here is Kelly's full quote on Red State: "I have never seen a filmmaker reinvent himself the way you just have. I won't say anything else because I don't want to spoil anything. It's really really exciting. If the movie ends up »

The ten most important doors in cinema

29 November 2010 2:31 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

This list may contain some spoilers…

Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984)

The concept of 'Room 101' was tormenting readers and viewers - both viscerally and morally - many years before the phrase 'torture porn' was coined. Of all that culture has taken from George Orwell's dystopic novel, nothing has exerted so powerful a grip on the common imagination as the terrifying-yet-banal entrance to this interrogation-cell within a future fascist state - a room that holds whatever your worst nightmare may be.

But crossing the threshold of Room 101 is additionally the doorway through which oppressed office-worker Winston Smith (John Hurt) will finally believe the horrible truth that O'Brien (Richard Burton) has been espousing to him: that man is a mere animal that will choose its own self-preservation over any emotional attachment. This is no mere entrance to the gallows - it's the doorway to spiritual and emotional obliteration.

King Kong (1933)

Richard Kelly Has Written An Animated Prequel To 'Southland Tales'

29 November 2010 2:00 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For a brief shining moment, Richard Kelly looked like the next directorial boy wonder. His feature debut "Donnie Darko" was a nifty little headscratcher--- until Kelly released a director's cut which explained all the ambiguities away and seemed to indicate he had no idea what made his film so special in the first place. His most recent effort was the dreadful horror flick "The Box" that was most notable for Frank Langella having half a face, however his most notorious film to date is the 2006 effort "Southland Tales." A sprawling, messy disaster, the film was a post-apocalyptic tale that… »

Early Buzz: Richard Kelly on Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’

29 November 2010 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Donnie Darko/The Box director Richard Kelly has seen Kevin Smith's upcoming indie horror film Red State, and spoke briefly about the film while appearing at Smith's Smodcastle screening of Southland Tales. What did Richard think? Hit the jump! "I have never seen a filmmaker reinvent himself the way you just have. I won't say anything else because I don't want to spoil anything. It's really really exciting. If the movie ends up playing at Sundance, I might actually come up to just see the audience's response. I can not wait…" Smith later described Kelly's reaction as "He had this expression on his face which was almost like 'Hey man, your dog just started talking to me!' You know what I'm saying? He was like 'You didn't make this! Like really, who made this?'" Of course, Kelly is a personal friend of Smith's and obviously wouldn't say »

Richard Kelly Has Written An Animated Screenplay Adaptation Prequel to ‘Southland Tales’

29 November 2010 9:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Richard Kelly recently appeared at Kevin Smith's Smodcastle in Hollywood California to present a screening of Southland Tales. Before the screening, Smith recorded a one and a half hour conversation with Kelly which begins with his childhood and spans his filmmaking career. It's a very interesting conversation and definitely worth checking out (you can listen to it online here [1]). One of the interesting takeaways from the conversation was the mention that Kelly still hopes to someday direct a movie adaptation of the Southland Tales prequel comic books. Actually, he's already written it -- twice! "There is another screenplay in place. It's funny because I wrote scripts that I handed over to Brett Weldele to illustrate for the graphic novel, and now I've taken that graphic novel and adapted it into a new screenplay, which is streamlined and more coherent. So it's becoming so meta that I don't know what''s reality anymore. »

Cyber Monday Awesomeness: Movie Cross-Stitch

Filed under: Cinematical

Whoever came up with the name Cyber Monday for today's consumer whoring adventures spent too much time in a chatroom asking "A/S/L?" sometime in the early '90s. You won't need an excuse like this awkwardly coined "holiday" to purchase the badassery that is otherwise known as Defiant Damsel. She creates "pop culture and other silliness, one stitch at a time" with her movie-centric cross-stitch tableaux.

Made in a smoke/pet/Ewok free home, these stitches depict a few of our favorite movie quotes and images in Home Sweet Home-style cross-stitch. It's the kind of embroidery you won't feel guilty about hanging over your toilet, or litter box, or on your refrigerator, since the Damsel provides magnetization for some of her designs.

Poor Richard Kelly. The man broke onto the scene with Donnie Darko becoming a huge cult classic for a number of years, although far After its theatrical release.
