'A Good Day to Die Hard' Director to Helm 'I.T.' with Pierce Brosnan

17 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Audiences will see Pierce Brosnan get back into action mode this weekend with The November Man (and there's already a sequel on the way), but that's not the only action he'll be seeing on the big screen. The former James Bond is set to star in I.T., another thriller set up at Voltage Films with A Good Day to Die Hard helmer John Moore attached to direct. But it sounds like there won't quite be as much action as either of their recent projects since the story follows Brosnan as a publisher whose relationship with a young I.T. consultant sours, causing the young man to use technology to threaten his family, business and life. Deadline reports the script originally comes from Dan Kay, based on an idea from David T. Friendly and his Friendly Films banner. But now Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Live Free or Die Hard writer William Wisher Jr. »

'I.T.' Starring Pierce Brosnan Gets 'Die Hard 5' Director

19 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director John Moore (A Good Day to Die Hard) has signed on to direct the thriller I.T., which has Pierce Brosnan attached to star.

We first reported on this project back in October 2013, when Pierce Brosnan signed on to play a successful book publisher whose friendship with a young I.T. consultant goes awry. The publisher soon finds his life being turned upside down, as his former friend begins threatening everything and everyone close to him.

William Wisher Jr. (The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The Abyss, Live Free or Die Hard) has signed on to rewrite the original script by Daniel Kay, and he will also serve as co-executive producer. Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores are producing through their Voltage Pictures company, alongside Friendly Films' David T. Friendly and Pierce Brosnan's producing partner Beau St. Clair. No production schedule was given, but Voltage will be selling the project »

What’s the effect of lowering The Expendables 3 rating to PG-13?

6 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…

Scott Mendelson notes the flaws with the decision on dropping the rating for The Expendables 3 to PG-13:

“Is a PG-13 Expendables film, which may end up being a strong action picture that merely lacks blood and F-words, at a disadvantage by virtue of its “lesser” rating? Will this attempt to snare potentially uninterested younger audiences in turn scare away the very audience who otherwise would be most excited to see the film?”

Read the full article, on Forbes, here.

The argument is whether the lower rating will put off the adult market that The Expendables 3 depends upon. The attempt at attracting a younger audience simply isn’t worth the potential loss of the adult audience. Mendelson writes how “box office failures of The Last Stand, Parker, Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan, and Sabotage” may be responsible for the change in rating. »

26 May 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

For a while now, many have deemed RoboCop to be popular culture’s most recognisable crime-fighting characters of all time.

Gang Related TV Review – Fox

22 May 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The relevant recommendation for Fox‘s new series, Gang Related, may begin and end with the knowledge that it is created/written by Chris Morgan. If the writing abilities that brought you the last five Fast & Furious films, Wanted, and 47 Ronin has left you impressed, you’re all set. Lock in to your new favorite show now.

If that fact alone doesn’t mean much to you, the show obligingly lays all its cards on the table in the first fifteen minutes of the pilot. You only have to invest that amount of time to know exactly what’s coming your way, I imagine for the entirety of the show’s run, but at least for the first few episodes. The show, and you have to give it some credit really, puts it out there and says, “Look, you’re in, or you’re out.”

Zack Snyder Teases Batmobile for Batman-Superman Movie

12 May 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Batmobile is almost as iconic as Batman himself, and director Zack Snyder has given fans a little peek into what the newest Caped Crusader will be driving in the upcoming Batman-Superman pic.

Snyder’s latest tease comes in the form of a tweet that included a picture of the tarp-covered car with the caption “Could be time to pull the tarp…Tomorrow?” Although the image shows only the back of the superhero’s new wheels, fans should stay tuned for more information — potentially tomorrow.

So far, fans have a Batman (Ben Affleck), a Superman (Henry Cavill) and a Batmobile, but the title remains a mystery. Maybe Snyder will soon pull the tarp on the film’s name as well.

Production designer Patrick Tatopoulos (“300: Rise of an Empire,” “Underworld,” “Live Free or Die Hard”) designed the new car.

Pic bows May 16, 2016.

Len Wiseman to Direct 'Black Chapter,' About Government Spies with Supernatural Powers

23 April 2014 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Superhero movies have been big business for quite some time now, but not every production company out there has access to a Marvel or DC Comics character, so every now and then we see a studio attempt at making its own superhero-esque franchise. Some of the most notable examples are Push, Hancock and Chronicle, and while they all have their fans, none have gone on to become franchises. And now we can add a new title to that roster of not-quite-superhero superhero movies: Black Chapter. Written by Zak Penn (X-Men 2, Elektra, The Avengers) and directed by Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard, Total Recall), Black Chapter is about an FBI agent ushered into a secret government program that trains people to develop and use paranormal abilities. Apparently the idea came about after...

Len Wiseman Will Direct Sci-Fi Thriller Black Chapter

22 April 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today, Underworld director Len Wiseman signed on to direct a supernatural sci-fi thriller titled Black Chapter for Skydance Productions. The project, which boasts a script from The Incredible Hulk writer Zak Penn, will focus on an FBI agent “who is drawn into a classified military program that trains its operatives to use paranormal abilities.”

Though the Hellboy series (among others) utilized a similar-sounding set-up, the sky’s really the limit for where Penn and Wiseman (who collaborated with Penn on the original story) can take Black Chapter.

Paul Schwake will executive produce for Skydance Productions, while David Bernardi will executive produce for Wiseman’s Sketch Films. Wiseman will produce alongside David Ellison and Dana Goldberg of Skydance Productions. Of the project, Ellison said:

“Len and Zak have created a truly original piece of science fiction that reimagines the spy genre set in the world of the supernatural… This is exactly »

Len Wiseman to Direct Paranormal FBI Sci-Fi Thriller 'Black Chapter'

22 April 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Before taking on the lackluster remake of Total Recall in 2012, director Len Wiseman hadn't been behind the camera since 2007 with the equally disappointing sequel Live Free or Die Hard. Last year Wiseman directed the pilot for the seemingly silly Fox series "Sleep Hollow," and after his plan to direct the reboot of The Mummy for Universal fell through, he seems to have finally found a new project. Deadline has word that Wiseman is set to direct a film called Black Chapter, a paranormal sci-fi thriller about an FBI agent who enters a secret military program where spies are specially trained in paranormal abilities. More below! We're not sure just what kind of paranormal abilities the program will deal with, but Wiseman gives some insight saying, "Black Chapter is a science fiction story that draws from our own history. I’ve always been fascinated by the mysteries surrounding the CIA’s »

Total Recall Director Len Wiseman to Helm Sci-Fi Thriller Black Chapter

22 April 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Len Wiseman looks to be zeroing in on his next project.  Variety reports that the Underworld director is set to helm the supernatural thriller Black Chapter for Skydance Productions, with a script by Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk).  The story—which was hatched by Wiseman and Penn—revolves around an FBI agent “who is drawn into a classified military program that trains its operatives to use paranormal abilities.”  Wiseman will also produce the pic, and while Skydance has a partnership with Paramount Pictures, they are not currently onboard Black Chapter. Wiseman last directed the 2012 reboot Total Recall to rather disappointing results, but his 2007 film Live Free or Die Hard was actually quite fun, so hopefully he can inject some of that levity into Black Chapter in order to keep things from delving into the bland territory of Recall.  He was recently attached to direct a reboot of The Mummy at Universal, »

Len Wiseman may have gained some notoriety for directing Live Free Or Die Hard and Total Recall, but he continues to land plum projects in Hollywood. Visually, he is very talented but his scripts often leave something to be desired. His next project looks to be the paranormal action thriller Black Chapter which will team him with a screenwriter of some merit. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wiseman will team with Zak Penn on the film. Penn wrote X2, The Incredible Hulk and has a »

14 April 2014 6:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox is rumored to currently be seeking writers for Die Hard 6, which, according to Latino Review's El Mayimbe, will reunite Bruce Willis as John McClane with his Die Hard: With a Vengeance co-star Samuel L. Jackson as Zeus Carver.

Twitter Scoop: Fox is meeting writers for takes on next Die Hard. It has to involve John McClane And Samuel Jackson's Zeus Carver character!

@BrianWCollins@_RyanTurek All I know is that writers are being asked to come up with a take that involves bringing back Zeus.

Back in October 2010, we reported that Bruce Willis plans to retire his iconic John McClane character after Die Hard 6. Then in February 2013, just before A Good Day to Die Hard was released, the actor confirmed that the project is still moving forward. The last we heard about the sequel was in April 2013, when little-known writer Ben Trebilcook »

I Can Support 'Die Hard 6' If Sam Jackson is Back

14 April 2014 6:04 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Die Hard franchise has run its course. Let's get that straight. However, if Fox feels it absolutely must continue then I guess I can throw my support behind a Die Hard 6 if this new rumor is indeed true. Reported by Latino-Review.com correspondent, El Mayimbe, the scooper says Fox is meeting writers for takes on Die Hard 6, the catch is it must involve not only Bruce Willis's John McClane, but it must also include Samuel L. Jackson's Zeus Carver character from 1995's Die Hard: With a Vengeance, which was directed by John McTiernan back in 1995. https://twitter.com/elmayimbe/statuses/455852596751007744 Shortly after the release of the awful fifth installment, A Good Day to Die Hard, Fox reportedly began moving on a sixth film, which was said to be an earlier draft of Ben Trebilcook's treatment for what would have been Die Hard 4 before it became 2007's Live Free or Die Hard. »

21 March 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jake McDorman is in talks to join Clint Eastwood's upcoming action project American Sniper. Bradley Cooper, Cory Hardrict and Sienna Miller are also attached.

The project is based on Navy Seal Chris Kyle's memoir, which he co-wrote with Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice. The soldier was known as the deadliest American sniper in military history and nicknamed The Devil by enemies and fellow service members. He had 150 confirmed kills between 1999 and 2009.

Bradley Cooper will be portraying Chris Kyle with Sienna Miller playing his wife. Jake McDorman will take on the role of Ryan 'Biggles' Job, who was the expert sniper's comrade during his time in the military. Several real Navy Seals are also expected to co-star in the film, including Kevin 'Dauber' Lacz. The Seal was a close friend of the sniper.

Jake McDorman previously played Evan Chambers on ABC Family's Greek and has a recurring role on Showtime's Shameless. »
