David Heyman’s ‘Methuselah’ Finds Writer (Exclusive)

22 October 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With biblical characters in high demand, Warner Bros. and producer David Heyman are revving up the gears on a property that fits into that realm.

Zach Dean, scribe of the blacklist script “Beast,” has been tapped to pen the script to “Methuselah.”

Based on the character from the Bible, the story follows a man who ages slowly and has used his time to develop an incredible set of survival skills.

Heyman will produce through his Heyday pictures. Jeff Clifford and John Fischer will oversee for Heyday with Drew Crevello and Jon Gonda overseeing for the studio.

Warners has wanted to get this off the ground for sometime with actors like Will Smith and Tom Cruise circling at one point or another. Given all the recent interest around characters from the Bible like Paramount’s “Noah” and the upcoming “Exodus: Gods and Kings” its no surprise WB sees this as something »

Greg Grunberg confirms Star Wars role

14 September 2014 10:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Star Wars: Episode VII will see Greg Grunberg reunite with Jj Abrams once again...

Another regular Jj Abrams collaborator has snuck a role into the still-shooting Star Wars: Episode VII. Greg Grunberg, who has worked with Abrams across several TV shows, as well as popping up in Mission: Impossible III and Star Trek, revealed on his Twitter account that "it is safe to assume I have a role in Star Wars: Episode VII - if I say more than that, Jj will have me killed".

So there you have it. We're guessing it's more a cameo than anything particularly sizeable, but we're happy to be proved wrong.

Grunberg, incidentally, doesn't look like he'll be reprising his Heroes work in the upcoming Heroes: Reborn miniseries.

Star Wars: Episode VII is released on December 18th 2015.

Greg Grunberg Says He Has A Role In Star Wars: Episode VII

13 September 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lens flares and frustrating “mystery boxes” aren’t the only things that constantly pop up in the filmography of J.J. Abrams. Another thing that appears quite often is Heroes and Masters of Sex actor Greg Grunberg, a childhood friend of Abrams’ who has shown up in almost all of the director’s cinematic works to date.

He’s had roles in Felicity and Alias, played Oceanic Flight 815 pilot Seth Norris in the Lost pilot, is in Mission: Impossible III, and even has small cameos in both Super 8 and Star Trek. He was, however, noticeably absent from Star Trek Into Darkness, which wasn’t very well received by fans…. That can’t be a coincidence, can it?!

Now it looks like the working relationship between Abrams and Grunberg will extend beyond our galaxy and into a famous one far, far away, as according to Grunberg himself, he has a role »

J.J. Abrams Casts Greg Grunberg in Star Wars: Episode VII

12 September 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Hey look! It's Star Wars news the doesn't include set photos! J.J. Abrams and Greg Grunberg (Heroes) have a long history together. The two are childhood friends who made home movies together in the late seventies. That grew into a professional relationship and Abrams cast him in Felicity, Alias, and a TV pilot called The Catch. As far as films go, the actor had a small role in MIssion: Impossible III, he provided the voice of Kirk's stepdad in Star Trek, was a TV actor in the background of Super 8, and now he's going to show up in Star Wars: Episode VII. Grunberg confirmed the news himself on Twitter saying:

"Yes @smgulz it Is safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII - If I say more than that, Jj will have me killed."

It's also safe to assume that Grunberg's role won't be a big one. It's »

"Star Wars" Gets Familiar Faces & Setting?

12 September 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Greg Grunberg is teaming up with his childhood friend J.J. Abrams again, the former dropping a tweet indicating that he's set to have a cameo in the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII".

Grunberg has been with Abrams for sometime. He was a regular on the Abrams-produced "Felicity" and "Alias," had a cameo as the pilot of the ill-fated Oceanic Flight 815 in "Lost," and had small appearances in "Mission: Impossible III," "Super 8" and even "Star Trek" (he was the voice of James Kirk's stepfather). Here's his tweet:

Yes @smgulz it Is safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII - If I say more than that, Jj will have me killed.

Greg Grunberg (@greggrunberg) September 11, 2014

Onto today's speculative rumors. It is safe to assume that planetary locations from the original "Star Wars" trilogy are set to be revisited in the upcoming films.

'Star Wars 7' Casts J.J. Abrams Regular Greg Grunberg

12 September 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Longtime fans of director J.J. Abrams will likely know that he casts his old childhood friend Greg Grunberg in most of his movies and TV shows. Many have wondered whether or not the actor will appear in the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, which is currently in production, but now that speculation can be put to rest.

Earlier today, Greg Grunberg confirmed on his Twitter page that he does, in fact, have a role in Star Wars: Episode VII, although he naturally wouldn't give any details about who he is playing.

So my pal #JJAbrams says the good word is Apostrophe

J.J. Abrams casts his pal Greg Grunberg in Star Wars: Episode VII

12 September 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like J.J. Abrams has cast his childhood pal Greg Gunberg in the eagerly-anticipated sequel Star Wars: Episode VII, with the Heroes and Masters of Sex star taking to Twitter to reveal that he has a role in the film, stating that, “If I say more than that, Jj will have me killed.” The two have worked together extensively in the past, with Grunberg featuing in Felicity and Alias, as well as appearing in minor roles in Lost, Mission: Impossible III, Star Trek and Super 8. Presumably, his part in Episode VII will follow suit, and is likely little more than a cameo.

Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release on December 18th 2015 and sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis »

'Mission: Impossible 5' Photo Reunites Tom Cruise with His Team

11 September 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Mission: Impossible 5 doesn't have a catchy title like Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol just yet, it does have most of that movie's cast returning. And they are now all on set as shooting continues this week. We previously saw Tom Cruise performing his own stunts in a few leaked paparazzi photos and videos, but now director Christopher McQuarrie has shared the first official set photo of the cast.

Tom Cruise once again stars as Ethan Hunt, with Jeremy Renner back as William Brandt, Simon Pegg doing his third turn as Benji Dunn and Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell, who has appeared in all 5 movies (though he went uncredited in the last adventure). Check out their reunion on set:

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Dumb Scientist from 'Prometheus' Cast as 'Mission: Impossible 5' Villain

5 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Remember Sean Harris in Prometheusc He was Fifield, the scientist who gets infected and returns back to the ship (see here). Since then he has starred in "The Borgias", he was seen in Deliver Us from Evil and will be seen in '71 later this year, and now Deadline says he's been selected to play the lead villain in Mission: Impossible 5, though the site does say he's only been offered the role and they are currently negotiating the contract, so I guess it's not official-official just yet. Shooting on the film, however, is already underway as videos and pictures from the set have been running rampant online as Tom Cruise steps back into the shoes of Ethan Hunt, Simon Pegg is returning as tech guru Benji Dunn, Ving Rhames is back as Luther Stickell and Jeremy Renner reprising his role as William Brandt from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. »

Ving Rhames Confirmed to Return to Action in 'Mission: Impossible 5'

18 August 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

At one time, there were rumblings that Jeremy Renner might take over the Mission: Impossible franchise from Tom Cruise as the latter superstar seemed to be fading from box office glory. But Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol proved to be a big success, and Cruise is still very much on board to star in Mission: Impossible 5 from director Christopher McQuarrie, and Renner will be back in a supporting role along with the return of Simon Pegg. Now one more franchise star is back as McQuarrie himself took to Twitter to welcome back Ving Rhames to the production, reprising his role as Imf agent Luther Stickell. Read on! Here's Christopher McQuarrie's confirmation of Ving Rhames in Mission: Impossible 5 from Twitter: Welcome back, Mr. Rhames. cc: @TomCruise @simonpegg @Renner4Real #MI5Diary— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) August 16, 2014 Rhames only had a small cameo role in Ghost Protocol, but we're hoping that »

Ving Rhames Will Return For Mission: Impossible 5

18 August 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though his Luther Stickell only had a brief cameo appearance in 2011′s excellent Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Ving Rhames, who starred in the franchise’s first three entries alongside Tom Cruise, is apparently returning in a larger capacity for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5.

An expert computer hacker with the Imf, Stickell was last seen grabbing a drink with fellow Imf agent Ethan Hunt (Cruise) after the central mission of Ghost Protocol. Though the character was never involved with that high-stakes mission to stop a nuclear attack on the United States, he did tell Ethan “see you in Kandahar” before departing, possibly setting up a storyline for Mission: Impossible 5. Thanks to director Christopher McQuarrie, at least we know now that Rhames has a part in the fivequel:
