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.

The 25 Best Movies of 2010

21 December 2010 5:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Twas a year in which sequels (“Toy Story 3,” Iron Man 2″), “originals” (“Inception,” “Despicable Me”) and movies somewhere in between (“Alice in Wonderland”) dominated the box office side-by-side.

But what movies ranked highest where it matters most (you know… in our hearts)?

From thrilling new installments in the behemoth “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” franchises to fascinating prestige films that mined gold from surprising sources like Facebook and ballet, here are our picks for the very best of the best of 2010.

25. ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

That vampire-werewolf-human love triangle reached hot new heights with its third – and strongest – installment this summer. With the highly anticipated tent scene, the battle against Victoria and the newborns and (swoon) that marriage proposal, the flick was so action-packed, smooch-packed and six-packed, fans’ cries of pure joy are still ringing in our ears. Or maybe those sounds are caused by the fact that we have to »

Who Should Replace Jon Favreau As 'Iron Man 3' Director?

14 December 2010 4:29 PM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

You've likely heard the news by now that Jon Favreau isn't directing "Iron Man 3." We're still awaiting confirmation, but in the meantime, it's our sad duty to contemplate the future of the franchise without Favreau's involvement.

[Update: Jon Favreau has confirmed his departure from "Iron Man 3" via Twitter.]

Although it's been a wildly successful series, "Iron Man" isn't the easiest franchise to nail down. It hinges on the charm of leading man Robert Downey Jr. and all of the comedy he and his fellow actors bring to the table just as much as it does on major action set pieces. Ideally, Marvel wants a director who can handle both of those elements.

With that in mind, we've taken on the daunting task of narrowing down five directors that could succeed Favreau in "Iron Man 3," even if the (possibly) outgoing filmmaker remains our first pick for the job.

Brad Bird

Perhaps we should wait until "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" arrives in theaters, »

Casting Bits: Carey Mulligan in ‘Shame,’ Bryan Callen in ‘The Hangover Part II,’ Lily Collins in ‘The Mortal Instruments’ and Miles Elliot in ‘Spider-Man’

10 December 2010 2:55 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Steve McQueen and Michael Fassbender, who teamed once already for the excellent film Hunger, are gearing up to make Shame, about a man unable to manage his sex life. Now Carey Mulligan has joined the cast as the sister of Mr. Fassbender's character. That's all we've got right now, but the basic talent line-up and the subject matter, which seems to have a Palahniuk leaning, puts this high on my anticipated list for 2011. Shame shoots in New York in January. [Deadline [1]] After the break, more cast for The Hangover Part II and Spider-Man, as well as a star for the new series adapting novel series The Mortal Instruments. The same Deadline [2] piece that offered up news about Max Minghella joining [3] George Clooney's The Ides of March also delivers a couple other useful nuggets: Bryan Callen, who played the owner of the wedding chapel in The Hangover, is working again in The Hangover Part II, »

Scot Armstrong & Ravi Nandan's American Work Sets Up 10 TV Comedy Projects

10 December 2010 2:20 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Scot Armstrong and Ravi Nandan stumbled into TV producing 2 years ago. The two were working with Nandan's old friend, writer Jason Mantzoukas, on feature projects when an idea Mantzoukas had felt better suited for TV. The three pitched the idea, it sold to NBC and eventually became the 2009 comedy pilot Off Duty starring Bradley Whitford. The pilot didn't go to series, but NBC liked Armstrong and Nandan's brand of comedy and signed their 4-year-old company American Work in a first-look deal. In their first TV development season last year, Armstrong and Nandan sold 4 comedy  projects. This season, they have set up 10: 8 at NBC and one each at Fox and FX. "Yeah, things are growing," Armstrong said. "I think it's because we push the tea party agenda in all of our half-hour comedies." Because of their deal with NBC, the bulk of American Work's development is at the network, »

Ferrell, Galifianakis to Play Political Rivals

7 December 2010 9:23 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are attached to a pitch to play political rivals in a comedy directed by Jay Roach (Meet the Parents, Recount).  Chris Henchy (The Other Guys) and Shawn Harwell (”Eastbound and Down”) are writing the script.

Deadline initially reported “everybody is interested” in the package, but Warner Bros snapped up the untitled feature the following day (Saturday, Dec. 5).

The trio hopes to shoot and distribute the movie in time for the presidential election in 2012, which are sure to be a running joke itself if Sarah Palin shows up for more Republican primaries and (fingers crossed) another hilarious VP nomination.

The pairing is sure to spark the inevitable “are Ferrell and Galifianakis still funny?” comments from jaded bloggers and boring arm-chair pundits, but for everyone else that enjoy the wild antics of either comedian, this is great news.  Ferrell could break out his George W. Bush impression »

Will Ferrell interview: Megamind, Anchorman and playing a villain

2 December 2010 4:55 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Megamind hits cinemas, we caught up with star Will Ferrell to discuss the film, Anchorman, comedy and playing an anti-hero…

In Megamind, comedy actor Will Ferrell provides the voice for the swaggering, dome-headed outsider of the title, a blue-skinned anti-hero who specialises in fancy capes and nefarious schemes.

As the film hits cinemas, we enjoyed a round-table interview with Mr Ferrell to discuss his work in Megamind, the classic Anchorman, and his comedy influences…

What was your inspiration behind Megamind’s voice?

Well, in terms of vocals, I was just trying to go for… he’s this villain who, under a different circumstances, could have been the good guy. He’s alienated to the point where he thinks, "I might as well be evil, it’s what I’m good at"

Tom McGrath, the director, and I, we spoke about how he should be approachable and sweet, and someone you’d root for. »

Catching Up: Gross-Out Fun plus Death à la Eastwood

18 November 2010 2:05 PM, PST | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Due Date

Over a decade ago, Todd Phillips co-created the New York Underground Film Festival. Those were the days when this event was really, really underground and almost too scary to attend. (Try sitting through Roadkill.) He went on to direct the highly entertaining Frat House for HBO, a "documentary" never to be released for the masses. Then he surprised everyone by becoming one of the most commercially profitable directors in America, with Road Trip, Old School, and The Hangover -- the highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time -- under his belt.

The Reject Report Meets Its Due Date

5 November 2010 8:53 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Halloween has past. October is no more. We have now entered the cool, gray month of November, and with it comes the Fall holiday movie season. They’re kicking it off early this year, right here at week number one with two big releases. Both of them, Megamind and Due Date, will surely come out of the gate full force. Even Tyler Perry’s new film will add to the collective change being pulled in this weekend. The theaters are going to be jammed packed this weekend, and it probably won’t matter who comes out on top. Everyone’s sure to be a winner. Big Hitters Todd Phillips’s films had mostly been decent successes. Films like Road Trip, Old School, and Starsky and Hutch were able to make bank on moderate budgets. Then 2009 hit, and The Hangover became a monster. Opening with $44.9 million and closing out at $277.3 million just in domestic, it »

Movie Review: Due Date

5 November 2010 8:44 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Nov 05, 2010

If you're familiar with the movies Due Date director Todd Phillips has been involved with in the past (The Hangover, Old School, and Road Trip), then you should know what to expect from his latest film. In my case, what I expected (and received) was a stomach that hurt from laughing too hard, a sore throat from the aforementioned laughing, and a few tears (again from the laughing). I think you get the idea; Due Date is one funny movie, made even funnier by the oddball pairing of Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. ...Read more at MovieRetriever.com »

Due Date

5 November 2010 7:00 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Due Date

Directed by: Todd Phillips

Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis, Michelle Monaghan, Jamie Foxx, Juliette Lewis

Running Time: 1 hr 35 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: November 5, 2010

Plot: Peter (Downey Jr.) must get from Atlanta to Los Angeles for the scheduled C-section of his first child. One problem, he’s just been put on the no-fly list and now his hopes are stuck to an imbecile (Galifianakis).

Who’S It For? This movie feels a little too easy. It’s broad comedy with the occasional gross or outlandish joke. Most of the laughs come at the expense of someone else.

Expectations: What’s not to love about Downey Jr. teaming up with Galifianakis and director Todd Phillips? Well, let’s not forget that in between Old School and The Hangover there was School for Scoundrels.

Scorecard (0-10)

Due Date Movie Review

5 November 2010 5:45 AM, PDT | movies.about.com | See recent About.com Hollywood Movies news »

Writer/director Todd Phillips follows up the successful The Hangover with Due Date, another R-rated comedy featuring men who behave badly. Phillips brings back Hangover's Zach Galifianakis, pairs him up with the most unlikely co-star, Robert Downey Jr, and sets them on a cross-country road trip. Think Planes, Trains and Automobiles but with a 15 pound French bulldog as a central character and masturbation as a punch line. Read On... Due Date movie review Also of Interest:

Summary:  'The Odd Couple,' in a car, with masturbation.

It should come as no surprise to you that Todd Phillips' first film since his big hit The Hangover (dude previously directed Old School and Road Trip), involves a wife about to pop, a car chase away from the Mexican border, public masturbation, and paternal ashes in a Folgers coffee can. (Spoiler: someone makes the "coffee.")

The Plot: An expectant dad and his unlikely travel companion race cross-country in hopes of making it home for the birth of his first child.

The Buzz: Like many wines and cheeses before him, writer/director Todd Phillips has aged well. With Road Trip, his directorial debut, he made a film just funny enough to facilitate the production of his 2nd film, the far superior, Old School. From there Phillips helmed Starsky and Hutch, which was respected well enough, for what it was, before taking a major misstep with School for Scoundrels. Phillips bounced back big-time from his first flop, »

Due Date is the new road comedy from director Todd Phillips. Phillips is the leader of Frat Pack comedies like Old School and The Hangover and Due Date fits right in. Laugh out loud raunch and humor, Phillips will leave viewers begging to see Hangover 2. With the Iron Man franchise and Tropic Thunder, is there anyone more hot than Robert Downey Jr right now? Maybe his co-star Zach Galifianakis. Zach G is all over the place right now. From HBO's Bored to Death to indie flick Its Kind of a Funny Story, Galifianakis is riding his Hangover success and giving fans what they need in a post-Chris Farley world. »
