Nicolas Cage was to be cast as Scarecrow in Joel Schumacher's aborted Batman Triumphant

5 October 2011 8:54 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Joel Schumacher has been doing press for his upcoming thriller Trespass, starring Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman. Before Batman and Robin failed miserable, he had been working on a followup called Batman Triumphant. The script had been drafted by Mark Protosevich and was planned to pit the Dynamic Duo against Scarecrow and his “fear toxins” forcing "Batman to see his former enemies, including the Joker." Jack Nicholson was still under-contract to reprise the role.  During a recent interview with The Playlist, Schumacher revealed who he wanted to play the Scarecrow in the film.

Here is what he said:

“I was supposed to do a fifth one. I was talking to Nic Cage about playing the Scarecrow. I had begged the studio for [the Frank Miller comic] ‘The Dark Knight [Returns],’ but they wanted a family friendly, toyetic thing.” Eventually, “Batman And Robin” came along, souring everyone on the franchise, and, just like that, Schumacher’s relationship with Warner Bros. »

Hollywood Hack John Moore Is Bruce Willis’ Bitch as Die Hard 5 Director

1 September 2011 12:24 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

You know how much chance Die Hard 5 has of being any good? About as much chance as Nelson getting his eyeback (or it’s long ago lead regaining his hair!).

The reason? Bruce Willis. Ever since his two spectacular dramatic performances for M. Night Shyamalan in The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, he has decided to play the ‘Bruce Willis’ card in every motion picture he has made since, with very few exceptions. Basically he is the star of the show on set and everyone does exactly what he says, otherwise he walks. He decides start and finish time, he decides how to perform in every scene and if he think the script is bullshit, he will tear it up, change it up and not work until he is happy with it.

Listen to the majority of directors who have worked with him in the last ten years, specifically Kevin Smith »

John Cusack To Replace Tobey Maguire In Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy'

12 July 2011 5:58 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's not too long since we last lamented the state of John Cusack's career: long one of our favorite actors, the decade or so since "High Fidelity" has seen at best, enjoyable-but-flawed movies like "Runaway Jury," "The Ice Harvest" or "1408," through to films that were barely released, like "Grace Is Gone" and "The Contract," to, at worst, pictures that were never released, like "Shanghai" and serial killer thriller "The Factory," both shot in 2008, and still sitting on the shelf. But signs are good for a comeback: he's playing Edgar Allan Poe in next year's period thriller "The Raven,"… »

Hugh Grant Takes The Lead In The Pirates! Band Of Misfits

17 May 2011 1:19 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

An Aardman Production For Sony Pictures Animation Martin Freeman, David Tennant, Imelda Staunton, Jeremy Piven, Salma Hayek, Brian Blessed, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen Also On Board

Culver City, Calif. – Hugh Grant will voice the lead role alongside an all-star cast in The Pirates! Band Of Misfits, the new stop-motion, 3D, animated film produced by Aardman Animations for Sony Pictures Animation. The film, which will be distributed by Columbia Pictures, will be released March 30, 2012 in North America.

Hugh Grant, starring in his first animated role, is the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to »

Sundance Flick: 'The Ledge' Brings A Hollywood Thriller To The Art House

2 February 2011 1:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

As "The Ledge" begins, Terrence Howard is having a really bad day. He's just discovered that he's actually not the father of his two young children and is sent up to a tall building to convince a suicidal man not to swan dive onto the street below.

But at the Sundance Film Festival last week, I'm quite sure no one was having a better time than Howard. He popped into MTV News HQ early and gleefully crashed our 50 Cent interview — turning the chat into a raucous and giggle-heavy affair — then began the "Ledge" conversation by showing off all the free gear he'd picked up — boots, watch, necklace, fur-lined coat — and instructed his castmates, "Get your swag, get your swag, get your swag!"

Yep, Howard was having a very good time. And it'd only get better, as IFC nabbed the rights to "The Ledge" shortly after our interview. For good reason. »

[Sundance Review] The Ledge

23 January 2011 1:01 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Poorly lit, written, directed, acted, sound-mixed, edited and anything else you can think of, Matthew Chapman‘s The Ledge, starring Liv Tyler, Charlie Hunnam, Patrick Wilson and Terrence Howard, is the kind of baffling mistake that ends careers. The whole thing’s shot and lit in a particular way, by Bobby Bukowski, that recalls the soft-core porn that plays on cable at around 3 in the morning. But then those films don’t themselves seriously. This one does, to a stubborn extent.

Concerning an atheist hotel manager named Gavin (Hunnam) standing on the ledge of a building, the distraught cop trying to get him off (Howard) and the couple (Tyler and Wilson) that put him there, The Ledge is ultimately about nothing at all. Wilson’s Joe is a staunch Born-Again who’s convinced all homosexuals are going to hell. His wife Shauna doesn’t seem as convinced, though she goes along with it. »

‘The Ledge’ – Religion, Romance and a Suicidal Ultimatum [Sundance Review]

22 January 2011 1:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Upon first reading about The Ledge, it felt like one of those classic Sundance Film Festival movies that could breakout and be a hit. It has a well-known cast, an experienced writer/director and a story that's easily digestible. The story is about how and why a man on the ledge of a building is ready to kill himself, the cast includes Charlie Hunnam, Liv Tyler, Patrick Wilson and Terrence Howard and the writer/director is Matthew Chapman, who wrote Runaway Jury, Color of Night and Consenting Adults. And while The Ledge is filled with interesting characters, solid performances and even some smart, thought-provoking dialogue, the story itself wanders around like leaf in the wind, at times totally unaware of the driving force of the movie: the Ledge of the title. Read more after the jump. Hunnam, best known for roles on Sons of Anarchy and Undeclared, plays Gavin, a »
