The 2015 Broadway season is shaping up to be another star-studded affair.
Clive Owen is the latest star headed to Broadway this season where he’ll star in Old Times directed by Tony Award winner Douglas Hodge. This is the 50-year-old acclaimed English actor’s first time on the NYC stage. He previously starred in a number of London productions, including Closer, which was later adapted for film starring him, Jude Law, Julia Roberts, and Natalie Portman.

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...
It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it.

This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »
When you have a film boasting the likes of Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman in the leads and it comes out straight to VOD and home video with a handful of theatrical dates thrown in to sweeten the pot ... well, something's gone badly wrong. So let's not have any illusions about the upcoming Last Knights being a particularly good film because the likelihood of that being the case is quite small. But, that said, the film is the English language debut of Casshern and Goemon director Kaz Kiriya, who very much knows his way around a pretty picture so there should at least be some quality visuals to enjoy.Academy Award® Nominee Clive Owen (Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, Closer, 2004)...

We started this website back in 2007, and since then, the names of some sequels seem to come up with reasonable regularity, albeit with no sign of the film itself. And in the time we've been going, yet more names have added themselves to the list of follow-ups that are seemingly stuck in development hell.
With the new Ghostbusters film set to escape and become a real thing in the next year or two, here's just a sample of the other projects struggling to get off the ground (with one or two edging closer to a greenlight than others...)
