Of all Paul Walker's career accomplishments, there's one very curious to award nuts like us: Back in 2003, Walker and his zesty lime car won a Teen Choice Award for Best Movie Chemistry in "2 Fast 2 Furious."

Though would-be series starter The Lone Ranger flopped at the box office this past summer, Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer will always have Pirates of the Caribbean to fall back on. The swashbuckling franchise currently holds the title of sixth highest-grossing series of all time, and 2011′s On Stranger Tides scored over $1 billion without the help of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Disney and Bruckheimer are working fast to pull together a fifth installment.
Currently subtitled Dead Men Tell No Tales, the film has already been slated for the summer of 2016. Now, we have news from The Daily Mail that two well-respected actors are considering major roles in the sequel. Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) and BAFTA nominee Rebecca Hall (The Awakening) have both been approached to play key characters in Dead Men Tell No Tales, which will find »

Brett Ratner, the director of the "Rush Hour" films and, most recently, "Tower Heist," isn't someone who you would imagine as being BFFs with Roman Polanski, the arty filmmaker behind such classics as "Chinatown" and "Rosemary's Baby." But this is exactly the case. The two have been great friends for a very long time (Polanski even co-starred in "Rush Hour 2") and their latest collaboration is "Weekend of a Champion," the commercial re-release of a 1971 racing documentary that Polanski produced and co-starred in but was barely released at the time. The doc follows racing legend Jackie Stewart at the height of his racing prowess (and in the midst of his intense friendship with Polanski), and the results are kind of like a documentary version of Ron Howard's recent drama "Rush." Stewart was an F1 racer from Scotland who was racing during the sport's most dangerous period (in a taped epilogue, »

Walt Disney Pictures has tapped Norwegian filmmakers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg to direct the fifth instalment in the blockbuster fantasy series Pirates of the Caribbean, which will see Johnny Depp returning once more to the role of Captain Jack Sparrow.
Rønning and Sandberg are no strangers to the high seas, having directed the Academy Award-nominated Kon-Tiki, which tells the true story of explorer Thor Heyerdal and his astonishing 4,300 mile crossing of the Pacific on a balsa wood raft in 1947. The duo will succeed both Rob Marshall and Gore Verbinski in the director's chair(s) for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 having fought off competition from the likes of Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) and Fredrik Bond (The Neccessary Death of Charlie Countryman).

In the midst of the Cannes Film Festival, Jackie Chan has been doing one or two interviews, and he's been chatting to Getty Images Entertainment. Talk turned to a pair of sequels he's been linked with, and it turns out that all the talk about The Expendables 3 has something to it, but that Rush Hour 4 is looking a longer shot.
Dealing with the latter first, Chan told Getty that "I think maybe not a Rush Hour 4. I think that maybe Chris Tucker and I will start another movie". He did add that "If the people still want Rush Hour 4 then okay, we'll do Rush Hour 4, but I think Chris and me start another series of films".

G.I. Joe sequel will definitely land at no.1 on the Us/Canada box office chart: But what are the chances this 3D sequel will pass the $50 million mark? You must have heard Hollywood producers, exhibitors, those people at the Motion Picture Association of America, and some film critics remark that "If you make Good Movies, audiences will come," or "There's no box-office malaise that a Good Movie can't cure," or "Moviegoers are eager to embrace Good Movies, Good Storytelling, and Good Acting." (Pictured above: Hunky Channing Tatum looks like he is ready for battle in the 3D action flick G.I. Joe: Retaliation.) Well, the proof is in the celluloid (or, nowadays, digital) pudding: Featuring a trio of action stars -- Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson, and Bruce Willis -- Jon M. Chu's sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation, will easily top the North American box office this weekend. Trailing the »

Sony is reporting that Skyfall grossed $260,000 yesterday, which was just enough to put its domestic total over the magic $300 million mark. Putting that in perspective, this means that Skyfall has nearly doubled the previous domestic-best gross of the 007 series, the $168 million grossing Quantum of Solace and the $167 million-grossing Casino Royale. Now that it’s theatrical run is pretty much finished (it’s got $5 million left in the tank, at the absolutely most), let’s look at how it did in the grand scheme of things. Even when adjusted for inflation, the film is the third-biggest domestic earner in the series, surpassing the adjusted-$279 million gross of You Only Live Twice ($43 million in real 1967 dollars) and hanging out below only the $515 million-grossing Goldfinger ($51 million in 1964) and the $585 million-grossing Thunderball ($65 million in 1965). It’s the biggest-grossing spy film of all time and the highest-grossing non-fantasy action film of all-time. Even when playing the inflation card, »

Johnny Depp has said on numerous occasions that he would be more than happy to return to Disney's lucrative Pirates of the Caribbean franchise as long as the story was worth telling. Disney is taking him up on that challenge.
News broke late Friday night that Disney has hired Jeff Nathanson to write the script for Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Whether there is a basic outline in place or if Jeff will be starting from scratch remains unknown at this time. What is clear is that Disney wants Captain Jack Sparrow back on the big screen and are willing to spend some cash to try and persuade Depp to don the dreads once again.
Nathanson is best known for penning 2002's Catch Me If You Can. His writing credits also include Rush Hour 2 and 3, Tower Heist, and the Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues video game characters.
