Who killed off The Golden Compass?

15 December 2009 5:02 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Sam Elliot believes the Catholic church killed off any chances of a sequel to The Golden Compass, but the truth may be far simpler

After the success of Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy looked a dead cert for epic fantasy book franchise success. In 2007, when first installment The Golden Compass was released, it looked to have all the right ingredients: moppet actors, spectacular battles, a sexy baddie, Ian McKellen, snow. But no sequels were made. Why?

Actor Sam Elliot thinks he knows. According to an interview in the Evening Standard, Elliot – who basically played himself in The Golden Compass – is pinning the failure of the series directly on the Pope, saying: "The Catholic church happened to The Golden Compass, as far as I'm concerned. It did incredible at the box office. Incredible. It took $85m (£52m) in the States. »

Cameron Diaz Snapped Hooking Up With Alleged New Beau

7 December 2009 10:36 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

It seems that Cameron Diaz has found a new man after she broke up with model Paul Sculfor. The "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" actress has been spotted on Sunday night, December 6 hooking up with an unidentified guy while she was going out in Sevilla, Spain along with some friends.

Said to be "definitely smitten with the man", the 37-year-old was caught jumping up on him and wrapping her legs around his waist in a full-body hug. Having dinner together, the guy was said sitting by Diaz when she chatted with her friends. Throughout the night, the co-star of Tom Cruise in "Knight & Day" was reported showing him "little signs of affection."

Report of Cameron Diaz and Paul Sculfor's split first emerged in May. At the time, the couple was said calling off their relationship after they reportedly "didn't see each other enough" since August 2008. A source said, "They have fallen out of love. »

Kristen Stewart's 'Welcome To The Rileys' Role Is Only The Latest Fictional Stripper In Hollywood

7 December 2009 2:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

With pictures of Kristen Stewart as a stripper in the upcoming Sundance player "Welcome to the Rileys" hitting the Internet last week, we decided to take a look back at five Hollywood actresses who starred as a stripper in the past, and how the decision impacted their careers. Some were launched into success stories, while others took a sharp downward turn. Hopefully, Stewart will take some pointers from those who came before her and avoid squashing the success "The Twilight Saga" has given her. If that's even possible.

One unusual fact that's worth noting: three of the five names on this list -- Demi Moore, Lindsay Lohan and Heather Graham -- all followed up their stripper appearances with roles in the Emilio Estevez-directed film, "Bobby." It's hard to say what that means, though three counts as a trend. Apparently, fake stripping drives female actors to Emilio Estevez. Go figure. »

Charlie's Angels set for TV revival in new series

13 November 2009 1:13 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Glamorous detective trio Charlie's Angels are on their way to the small screen once again, with Us network ABC about to commission a pilot from Sony Pictures TV.

Josh Friedman will write and executive-produce the new series, reports Variety.

He previously developed and wrote Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and was screenwriter on movies The Black Dahlia and War of the Worlds.

Also involved are original Charlie's Angels producer Leonard Goldberg, who launched the series with Aaron Spelling in 1976, as well as Drew Barrymore, who starred in and produced the 2000 film version and its sequel.

Spelling has twice before attempted bringing the show back to the small screen, with Angels 88 - which never got off the ground - and a second bid in 2004.

The original Charlie's Angels ran from 1976 to 1981, with cast members including Farrah Fawcett who died earlier this year.

There have been two films: Charlie's Angels in 2000 and »

25 August 2009 3:09 PM, PDT | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Showing that he still is an actor, Iron Man 2 and Tropic Thunder screenwriter Justin Theroux has joined the cast of Universal's Your Highness, a fantasy-themed comedy now filming in Ireland. Theroux is playing the film's villain to Danny McBride's hero.

Theroux is playing a bad wizard named Leezar who kidnaps a princess (played by (500) Days of Summer's Zooey Deschanel). David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) is directing the movie which is being aimed for a 2011 release.

Since 2008 Theroux's acting career has been on the backburner while he turned his attention toward his writing assignments. Past credits for the 38-year-old actor include American Psycho, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, »

Review: G-Force

24 July 2009 11:15 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

We live in a marvelous age, one where technological advancements have made it relatively easy to produce a film in which computer-generated guinea pigs interact seamlessly with flesh-and-blood humans. What's extraordinary is that a film can have all that and still be boring. Eighty years ago, people were delighted just to see movies talk. In 2009, you can watch animated rodents save the world and still think, "Meh. What else you got?"

G-Force is the subject, a harmless and good-natured family flick that unfortunately relies so much on its central conceit -- small animals have been trained as government spies!! -- that it forgets to do anything else. Take the animals out of the equation and you're left with an exceedingly generic secret-agent adventure -- which may be no surprise, given that the screenplay is by the husband-and-wife team of Cormac and Marianne Wibberley, who also wrote the National Treasure movies, »

McG Headbutted by Bill Murray

4 June 2009 10:00 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

"Terminator Salvation" director McG told The Guardian that he is no strangers to on-set rants (like Christian Bale's), admitting that Bull Murray previously headbutted him. "I don't think there's been a film I've made where there hasn't been some kind of physical fight," he said. "I've been headbutted by an A-list star. Square in the head. An inch lower and my nose would have been obliterated." He added: "I probably shouldn't - but it was Bill Murray. Y'know, it's a passionate industry." McG and Murray worked together on the original "Charlie's Angels" movie. Ironically, Murray withdrew from the sequel, "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle," to be replaced by the late Bernie Mac. »

McG Headbutted By Murray

3 June 2009 12:00 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Director McG was once headbutted by actor Bill Murray - in a fight which nearly broke the moviemaker's nose.

McG worked with the Ghostbusters star on 2000 film Charlie's Angels but the actor did not return for the subsequent sequel, 2003's Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

And McG claims his professional relationship with Murray was marred by a vicious fight, which ended in the star headbutting the director in the face.

McG says, "I don't think there's been a film I've made where there hasn't been some kind of physical fight. I mean, I've been headbutted by an A-list star. Square in the head. An inch later and my nose would have been obliterated. I probably shouldn't (reveal who it was).

"But it was Bill Murray. Y'know, it's a passionate industry." »

Drew Barrymore Enjoying Quality Time With Alleged New Lover

27 May 2009 11:31 PM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

It seems that Drew Barrymore is ready to date another man. The "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" actress was seen hanging out with a guy in Palm Springs, California on Monday, May 25. Drew and the unidentified man were spotted chatting and drinking ice tea.

Drew Barrymore split from Justin Long, her co-star on movie "He's Just Not That Into You", in July 2008. The couple broke up even though they were said planning to tie the knot the same year. "Drew Barrymore is ready to reboot her love life, the actress has split from Justin Long," Us Magazine reported.

Two months ago, Drew and Justin reportedly rekindled their love as they were rumored engaging in full Pda for hours at Hollywood hotspot Bar Marmont. However, the 34-year-old beauty soon denied the rumors admitting she was still single.

"I love it! It's great!" she talked about her single status. "I get to be »

McG distances himself from third Charlie's Angels movie

21 May 2009 5:55 PM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Terminator Salvation director McG has appeared to rule out any interest in helming a third Charlie's Angels movie.

Franchise star Drew Barrymore and producing partner Nancy Juvonen are keen on a further Angels adventure and want Barbadian singer Rihanna (right) to join the team of female investigators.

The R&B star, who broke up with Chris Brown after being injured in a violent argument, is now reported to be dating Canadian rapper Drake.

Asked whether he was interested in a third movie, McG indicated he wanted to stay in the sci-fi genre.

He told Mania: "I haven't thought about it. I'm trying to grow and work in genres that I'm most comfortable working in.

"I got started in Charlie's Angels, and I wish them every success with another sequel, but these are the films that I grew up feeling very passionate about: Terminator, Blade Runner, the Kubrick pictures."

Discuss: What Did You Think of Terminator Salvation?

21 May 2009 4:49 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The wait is over. Wait, I think I used that for Star Trek, didn't I? Alright, this week the wait for another entry into the Terminator franchise is over, brought to you by the same guy who has delivered such gems as Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and We Are Marshall. In Terminator Salvation, John Connor is all grown up and he looks a lot like Batman, he's facing off with foes with faces new -- soon-to-be-mega action star Sam Worthington as Marcus Wright -- and old, and he's fighting to save the current live of his future father from the past, Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin). And chances are that if you saw it in theaters, you might actually know what all of that means. If you haven't seen it in theaters and you'd like a little primer, we've got you covered with the following articles: Terminator Salvation Theatrical Trailer The Movie Watcher's Guide to Terminator by Robert Fure »

Interview: 'Terminator Salvation' Director McG

20 May 2009 8:02 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Not despite Charlie's Angels, but because of it (the first one, anyway), I really like McG as a filmmaker. Say what you want about his undeservedly but oft-criticized nickname, but the guy has the chops - and then some - to make blockbuster spectacle look, well, spectacular. Given his existing filmography, he's only made one serious creative misstep, the disastrous Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, since the first Angels movie was an exhilarating thrill ride and 2006's We Are Marshall a heartfelt and powerful drama.

Aiming for the A-list credibility enjoyed by the likes of Christopher Nolan, McG has unleashed his muscular, bombastic creativity on Terminator Salvation, which should certainly resuscitate the franchise even if it doesn't quite distinguish the director from other fanboy punching bags like Michael Bay and Brett Ratner. As part of Cinematical's special Summer Interview Series with different directors, we sat down with McG at the film's »

Jackass Star Chris Pontius Signs on for Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere

20 May 2009 3:03 PM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

This past weekend I caught part of Steve-o: Demise and Rise on MTV, which documents Steve-o's downward spiral into drug and alcohol addiction and subsequent intervention from the Jackass crew. It was sad to see one of the greatest actors of our time squandering all his skateboarding and rapping talent, but the whole time I kept thinking, "Please Steve-o, keep it together long enough to make Jackass Number Three... or at least another season of Wildboyz". Fortunately he will live to huff nitrous oxide another day, but the truth is, a lot of his best buds have already started to move on without him. Believe it or not, Steve-o's Wildboyz partner Chris Pontius has just landed a pretty sweet gig that could possibly be his ticket to bigger and better things. According to The Hollywood Reporter [1], Pontius will star in Sofia Coppola's next film Somewhere. He will play Sammy, »

McG Rules Out Charlie's Angels Return

20 May 2009 5:15 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

McG will never direct another Charlie's Angels movie - because he wants to concentrate on establishing himself as a sci-fi film-maker.

McG was at the helm of the 2000 big screen version of the classic TV series, starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu, and returned to direct the sequel, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, in 2003.

Barrymore confirmed earlier this year that the three angels are set to reprise their roles for another film.

But McG won't be taking to the director's chair for the third picture, as he is keen to focus on more male dominated movies - such as his recent work on new blockbuster Terminator Salvation.

He tells Mania, "I'm trying to grow and work in genres that I'm most comfortable working in. I got started in Charlie's Angels, and I wish them every success with another sequel, but these are the films that I grew up feeling very passionate about. The Terminator. Blade Runner. The Kubrick pictures." »

Chris Pontius going 'Somewhere'

19 May 2009 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Chris Pontius has booked a room in Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere."

The "Jackass" trouper will play Sammy, best friend of the character played by Stephen Dorff, a decadent, bad-boy actor living at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood who begins to re-examine his life after a surprise visit from his 11-year-old daughter (Elle Fanning).

Coppola, who wrote, directed and produced "Marie Antoinette" and "Lost in Translation," is doing the same for "Somewhere." Francis Ford Coppola, Fred Roos and Paul Rassam are executive producers on the American Zoetrope/Focus Features production.

Pontius, repped by Gersh and Untitled Entertainment, had roles in "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" and "What We Do Is Secret." »

Bale Suspicious Of Director McG's Nickname

19 May 2009 1:00 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Christian Bale had to be convinced to star in director McG's new Terminator movie - because he was so suspicious of the filmmaker's odd name.

McG, real name Joseph McGinty Nichol, was given the moniker from birth to differentiate him from his uncle and grandfather, who are both called Joe.

And Bale admits he had reservations about working with the Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle director on Terminator Salvation before researching his work - because he couldn't take him seriously.

Explaining his concerns he says, "There's a hurdle for starters, working with somebody called McG. And listen he's the first to admit that. He's a great man who's happy to call himself McG because he got a hurdle right from the get-go with that. I was a real sceptic. I just felt like there was no need for any more chapters in this anthology, but he had some great ideas.

"He asked me to take a leap of faith... and I think he's managed to pull it off." »

Peeping Tom LaBeouf Spied On Charlie's Angels

13 May 2009 5:05 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Shia LaBeouf spied on Hollywood beauties Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu during the filming of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle - because his trailer was directly opposite the girls' dressing rooms.

The Transformers star had a minor role in the 2003 film, and was granted his own relaxation area during the shoot.

The 22-year-old actor was delighted - as his room overlooked Diaz and Liu's private quarters, and he set about "peeping" through the window.

He says, "My trailer was set up so Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu's trailers were visible through my window.

"I'd put down the blackout shade just enough to have my eye peeping through and get them in my crosses." »

McG Talks Terminator Salvation Casting Choices

12 May 2009 2:41 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Joseph "McG" McGinty Nichol has come a long way from his humble beginnings shooting still photos of local bands in Newport Beach, California. McG's still photography led to him shooting music videos and music documentaries before Hollywood came a-calling in the form of Drew Barrymore's big-screen adaptation of the classic TV series Charlie's Angels.

The McG-directed films Charlie's Angels and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle were both financial successes, but McG immediately tried to distance himself from those films in favor of "more substantial material." If McG's latest project, Terminator Salvation, is even half as good as the trailers, the film's release should obliterate any further references to Angels when discussing McG's work.

There are many elements that go into making a film both a critical and a financial success, but arguably one of the most important factors is hiring the right actors to bring the story to life. »

Will Henry Cavill finally become Superman in the next film?

7 May 2009 12:07 PM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Henry Cavill, best known as Sir Charles Brandon in hit TV show The Tudors, has come close to playing big-screen heroes on several occasions.

He was once dubbed the unluckiest man in Hollywood - and here's why...

Cavill was:

almost cast as the new James Bond, losing out to Daniel Craig

close to landing the part of Batman that went instead to Christian Bale

among contenders to play Superman in the shelved Justice League movie

attached to star in the unmade Superman: Flyby movie which was to have been helmed by Terminator Salvation director McG.

McG had initially walked away from directing a proposed Batman vs Superman film in favour of making Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

He later became involved in the Superman: Flyby project, dropping out when his phobia of air travel clashed with Warner Bros' desire to film it in Australia. So Flyby never flew anywhere.
