Former WCW and WWE star Bill Goldberg has signed on to executive produce and star in a new action thriller entitled Bauer, which is being directed by Richard Gabai (Justice, Call of the Wild).

Goldberg’s previous movie credits include the likes of Universal Soldier: The Return, The Longest Yard, Santa’s Slay and Half Past Dead 2.

The Do-Over Review

29 May 2016 5:24 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Sometimes I wish I could like an Adam Sandler movie, that I could have been one of the people to make The Ridiculous 6 one of the most viewed movies on Netflix because I genuinely was looking forward to it. But every movie post Mr. Deeds (with the exception of The Longest Yard, but that was probably because of every cast member bar Sandler) has seen me become numb to the efforts of the once funny man, even more so now that Happy Madison Productions just seems to be Sandler’s own personal travel agency, fuelled by product placement and tasteless jokes. I do stupidly find myself hoping Sandler can turn it around with each movie, harking back to the old days, but that spark of hope has been finally squashed with The Do-Over, the second of four Netflix exclusive movies for the actor, being everything people have grown to »

Staring Down The 2016 TCM Classic Film Festival

24 April 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

I live in Los Angeles, and my residency here means that a lot of great film programming-- revival screenings, advance looks at upcoming releases and vital, fascinating glimpses at unheralded, unexpected cinema from around the world—is available to me on a week-by-week basis. But I’ve never been to Cannes. Toronto, Tribeca, New York, Venice, Berlin, Sundance, SXSW, these festivals are all events that I have yet to be lucky enough to attend, and I can reasonably expect that it’s probably going to stay that way for the foreseeable future. I never attended a film festival of any kind until I made my way to the outskirts of the Mojave Desert for the  Lone Pine Film Festival in 2006, which was its own kind of grand adventure, even if it wasn’t exactly one for bumping shoulders with critics, stars and fanatics on the French Riviera.

But since 2010 there »

Galvan, Arreola on Shooting ‘The 4th Company’ in Mexico’s Most Notorious Penitentiary

16 March 2016 2:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Guadalajara – Rarely has Mexico seen such an epic production. A hard-boiled penitentiary thriller “The 4th Company” won Guadalajara’s Co-Production Meeting in 2007. It took nine years for it to return as a finished film. Monica Lozano, who backed Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu debut “Amores Perros” and Eugenio Derbez’s U.S. Spanish-language box office record holder “Instructions Not Included,” produces with directors Amir Galvan Cervera and Mitzi Vanessa Arreola, Mexico’s Ozcar Ramirez (“Days of Grace”) and Michel Merkt (“Elle,” “Journey to the Stars”). But 23 execs take various forms of production credits in the film’0s IMDb listing. At one point, production halted when one of its actors fell into coma. The fiction feature debut of Amir Galvan Cervera and Mitzi Vanessa Arreola, “The 4th Company” derives some of its force from being based on true events. Set in 1979, it turns on the Santa Martha Dogs, a real-life jailhouse American football »

Happy 80th Burt-day to Burt Reynolds! – Here Are His Ten Best Movies

11 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Travis Keune, and Tom Stockman

Burt Reynolds, one of We Are Movie Geeks favorite actors, turns 80 today. Happy Birthday Burt!

On February 11th, 1936, Reynolds was born in Waycross, Georgia, before his family moved to Jupiter Florida, where his father served as Chief of Police. Young Burt excelled at sports and played football at Florida State University. He became an All Star Southern Conference halfback (and was earmarked by the Baltimore Colts) before injuries sidelined his football career. He dropped out of college and headed to New York with dreams of becoming an actor. There he worked in restaurants and clubs while pulling the odd TV job or theater role. Burt was spotted in a New York City stage production of Mister Roberts and signed to a TV contract and eventually had recurring roles in such shows as Gunsmoke (1955), Riverboat (1959) and his own series, Hawk »

Ed Lauter Exemplified Versatility, Authenticity in Character Actor’s Craft

28 January 2016 11:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Being one of the top character actors of American film and television must be the ultimate double-edged career sword.

On the one hand, if you’re good — and the late Ed Lauter was one of American cinema’s great character actors — you work all the time. On the other hand, as Lauter told Shock Cinema magazine back in 2010, “Sometimes people don’t know my name. They’ll say, ‘Oh, yeah! There’s that guy! You were in … Jesus Christ … you were in … in …’ So, in a way it’s good — and in a way it’s bad.”

Lauter was not alone in his plight. He and his fellow character actors who consistently deliver the goods have been a mainstay of American cinema since the days of the Hollywood’s “stock players,” a moniker that devalues the work of great performers from Hattie McDaniel to Peter Lorre, from Sidney Greenstreet to »
