It seems a Hollywood project is never more than one or two steps away from Mark Wahlberg’s involvement. The past decade has seen the actor steadily grow into a producing force (“Entourage,” “Prisoners”) while still maintaining his studio-reliable leading man status (“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Ted”), but as with “The Fighter,” the smaller projects sometimes present the harder challenge. The most recent example is “The Gambler,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” director Rupert Wyatt’s remake of the 1974 Jimmy Caan original, and it’s easy to see why – it’s an unconventional gambling flick, in which a college Literature professor attempts to burn his finances to the ground to see what’s left. At an AFI Fest screening of the film (our review here) and a roundtable discussion the next day, Wahlberg explained that the title was a bit misleading when it came to his character, Jim Bennett. »

But he confessed, "My mind went blank and I wondered what I would talk to her about, but she's very good at »

It’s sort of a random point for us to be suggesting directors for the solo Aquaman movie, what with its confirmation being nearly two months old and its actual existence being almost four years away. But it needs to be done eventually, and I thought today a good time as a response to Jason Momoa‘s comment at a Brazil comic book convention over the weekend that he wants Zack Snyder at the helm. It’s not that I really care if Snyder directed Aquaman, but I don’t see the assignment being very likely. He’s already done Man of Steel, is presently making Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and he’s set to take the reigns on at least the first Justice League movie. Warner Bros. and DC (and probably Snyder himself) has to prefer going with a bit more variety on this franchise. Like how they’ve already hired Michelle MacLaren for »

The rebooted version of 1994 comic book classic, The Crow, has found a new director. The previously-attached F. Javier Gutiérrez has bowed out, and relative newcomer Corin Hardy will take the reins on the gothic revenge actioner.
Per Deadline, Hardy’s name was suggested to Edward R. Pressman – who produced the original and is tackling the same role for the remake – by none other than Edgar Wright. A self-confessed fanboy, Wright was impressed by Hardy’s first short, Butterfly, and the edgy music videos he crafted for Ed Sheeran, Biffy Clyro, Keane, Paolo Nutini and The Prodigy, and recommended him for the gig. Hardy’s feature debut, The Hallow, traces the story of family who move to the rural confines of countryside and wind up fighting a load of creatures in the woods. It’s yet to be released, but will hopefully land a date for 2015.
Talk of a reboot of The Crow, »

The two guys later met up with a bikini-clad woman before heading farther down the beach together.

The talented filmmaker was previously attached to helm Thor: The Dark World but subsequently dropped out over creative differences with Marvel.

Adam was eight years older than the actress and lived in New York, where he and his siblings grew up. The cause of his death was not revealed. Jamie-Lynn and her family have not commented. A friend of the actress told E! News that Adam was in a coma when he died. "This came out of nowhere. It's a shock," the friend said on Thursday.

Mark Wahlberg's latest role in The Gambler, a revamp of the 1974 film by the same name, was a roll of the dice for the movie star. Wahlberg shed about 60 pounds to play anti-alpha male Jim Bennett, a college professor and novelist who takes a masochistic pleasure in blowing up his life with an increasingly disastrous series of gambling losses. The Gambler had its world premiere in La last night and will hit theaters on Dec. 19, just in time to be considered in this year's Oscars race. Beyond Wahlberg, the supporting cast seems built with an award season audience in mind; Jessica Lange, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Michael Kenneth Williams, and a newly discovered talent, Anthony Kelley, round out the credits. We joined a group of reporters for a conversation with Wahlberg in Beverly Hills, CA, this morning, where he arrived looking back in his typical, Transformers-ready shape, and »
