Armie Hammer Finds ‘Virtue’ With Eric Bana In Sheldon Turner’s Directorial Debut

7 December 2011 9:42 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After breaking out in The Social Network, Armie Hammer has opted for mostly high-profile films. We saw him in Clint Eastwood‘s J. Edgar this fall, and he will appear in Tarsem’s Mirror Mirror as well as Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger. Deadline is reporting a project that will see him head into more of the indie field.

With Eric Bana already attached, Hammer has jumped on the directorial debut of the Oscar-nominated Up In The Air co-writer Sheldon Turner. Titled By Virtue Fall, Hammer would likely be replacing the role that Colin Farrell was once attached to. The “gritty drama” will see Hammer as “an Atf agent framed on a corruption beef and sent to a maximum security federal prison. He turns into a badass to survive, and when he emerges from that hellhole, he devotes himself to getting revenge on the person who destroyed his life: »

In Lieu of a 'Jack and Jill' Review I Offer an Adam Sandler Career Study

11 November 2011 9:20 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I didn't see Adam Sandler's Jack and Jill, and it wasn't because Sony didn't screen it; because they did. Nope, the reason I didn't see it is because it looked like more of the same Sandler twaddle. A fact that caused me to look back to try and find out the last time I subjected myself to one of Sandler's so-called "comedies". As it turns out, Jack and Jill is the fourth one in a row that I've skipped. Jack and Jill was now part of a growing list with Just Go with It (2011), Grown Ups (2010) and Bedtime Stories (2008). Admittedly, I have heard Just Go with It was actually pretty good (though the film's 20% RottenTomatoes score says otherwise), but I still have no desire to see it. The last Adam Sandler movie I did see -- no, I don't count him voicing the monkey in Zookeeper -- was Funny People »

Top 5: Wrestlers turned actors

5 October 2011 11:30 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

As Anchor Bay UK releases Born To Fight onto DVD and Blu-ray this week (October 3rd) starring the one and only “Stone ColdSteve Austin, we thought we would have to look to see who the Top 5 Wrestlers turned actors are, past and present…

1) “Stone ColdSteve Austin

Our winner has to be “Stone ColdSteve Austin. Stone Cold has fought onto our screens many times over the years. Being the only action hero on this list even to be nominated for a Teen Choice. We have seen Stone Cold kick butt from The Longest Yard right through to Hunt To Kill, The Stranger and now Stone Cold’s newest movie; Born To Fight, and with yet more films from Austin coming in the very near future we think he’s the biggest wrestler-turned-action hero going.

2) Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Dwayne Johnson, also known as “The Rock”, comes in at »

Read George Clooney’s List of the Top 100 Films from 1964-1976

26 September 2011 12:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] George Clooney may be among the most prominent of celebrities, a fabulously wealthy, incredibly successful man at the very top of the A-list. But it seems there's a side of him that isn't so very different from film geeks like us who watch his movies. (Yes, all of that was a long-winded way of saying "Clooney: He's just like us!") For a recent interview about his upcoming Ides of March, which Clooney directed, produced, and starred in, Clooney revealed his top 100 films from 1964 to 1976, which he believes to be "the greatest era in filmmaking by far." The list is definitely cinephile-friendly, if not especially surprising: it includes tons of major classics and a handful of somewhat lesser known gems, all across a very wide variety of genres. Read the top 100 after the jump. Clooney told Parade [2] magazine that of that 100, his top five favorites are All the President's Men, Network, »

Richard Jenkins Boards ‘One Shot’; ‘Magic Mike’ Lands Two More

22 September 2011 4:36 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Actors are really starting to converge toward Christopher McQuarrie‘s One Shot. In addition to starring Tom Cruise, the thriller based on Lee Child’s novel has also landed Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo, and Variety now reports that Richard Jenkins is in final talks for a part.

This role will have him playing a district attorney tasked with prosecuting a sniper accused of killing five people. The murder spree kicks off the plot, which follows Cruise‘s Jack Reacher investigating the true motives behind the crime. No matter how much screentime he’ll be getting, Jenkins should make a great addition to this film since he… well, since he makes a great addition to any film. With production scheduled for this fall, One Shot will open on February 8th, 2013.

In further casting news, Deadline and THR tell us of additions to Steven Soderbergh‘s currently-filming Magic Mike: Breaking Bad »

Top 10 Wrestlers on Film!

15 September 2011 4:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

(An article from our archives for your pleasure today)

Wrestling involves a great degree of acting, so it comes as no surprise that a number of wrestlers have attempted to make it in the movies over the years. With the formation of the WWE film division a few years ago WWE chairman Vince McMahon is determined to crack the big screen as well as dominating the small screen. Since the Hollywood success of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a number of top wrestling stars have tried to follow in his footsteps and this shows no signs of letting up anytime soon with John Cena working with Die Hard 2 director Renny Harlin on the upcoming 12 Rounds, with no doubt countless other wrestler starring vehicles to follow.

No matter how talented in the ring a wrestler is if they don’t have the charisma to hold an audience’s attention in interviews »

Blood of the Vines: The Longest Yard

14 September 2011 7:35 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Randy calls an audible and goes for a little Burt Reynolds.

It’s not too hard to connect the dots between professional football and prison, or between football and fine wine.  It’s quite a bit harder to make a play for all three.

There is no shortage of star football players who have done a little time – or more – in the pokey.  Conversely, some football folks have ventured into the field of wine.  I’ll take football over prison and wine over either of those choices.

The Longest Yard has Burt Reynolds – himself a former college football player – as a prisoner who heads up the inmate football team in a contest against the guards, a game which is more than just a game to those on the field.  It’s fantasy football with real consequences.  These football heroes have numbers a lot longer than one or two digits; their football cards are mugshots. »

Burt Reynolds denies plastic surgery rumors; 'I was never lifted' he tells Ok! magazine

31 August 2011 5:09 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Burt Reynolds, the man who personified machismo in such 1970s films as "Smokey and the Bandit" and "The Longest Yard," has denied ever going under the knife to maintain his look.

The 75-year-old actor tells Ok! Magazine his face is untouched. "I was never lifted. I would not have a problem with the truth, but I inherited my smooth skin from my father."

The actor, who was nominated for an Oscar for "Boogie Nights," did admit that too many on-screen fisticuffs required him to get his eyes tweaked.

"In the mid '80s, after some fights in a film, I had to have my eyes done," he says. "For one, I almost went blind because I got black powder in my eye. Also I had terrible sacks under my eyes from the many fist fights. My eyes were not in form any more. I had that corrected."

Reynolds made no mention of his ever-evolving hairline. »

Top Ten Tuesday – The Best of Lee Marvin

30 August 2011 5:10 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

We’re celebrating one of Hollywood’s great tough guys and one of our favorite actors September 6th at The Way Out Club in St. Louis with Super-8 Lee Marvin Movie Madness.

Lee Marvin rose through the ranks of movie stardom as a character actor, delivering mostly villainous supporting turns in many films before finally graduating to leading roles. Regardless of which side of the law he was on however, he projected a tough-as-nails intensity and a two-fisted integrity which elevated even the slightest material. Born February 19, 1924, in New York City, Marvin quit high school to enter the Marine Corps and while serving in the South Pacific was badly wounded in battle when a machine gun nest shot off part of his buttocks and severed his sciatic nerve. He spent a year in recovery before returning to the U.S. where »

Week 207: Monstrous Mama’s Gridiron Ghosts!

15 August 2011 12:16 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A mashup of awesome from more awesome gurus. Let’s roll these legends out!

On Monday, August 15, join Mick Garris for the trailer to The Legend of Hell House.

Former Aip head James Nicholson formed Academy Pictures to produce his own projects and this one, of only two released after his death, validates the difference between former partner Sam Arkoff’s aesthetic and his own. Richard Matheson’s popular haunted house novel, transposed to England, receives a classy production with A-level promotion, although the sexuality is a bit toned down.

On Wednesday, August 17, join Josh Olson for the trailer to The Longest Yard.

Along with Roger Corman, Robert Aldrich seems to be the director most represented on Trailers from Hell. This prison-set anti-authoritarian football movie has similarities to The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner. Burt Reynolds, who also appeared in the 2005 Adam Sandler(!) remake, plays a violent anti-hero who »

NextMovie's Fantasy Movie Football Draft Picks

15 August 2011 9:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Mid-August means it's high time for Fantasy Football in America, and you know what that means: It's almost Actual Football time!

As gridiron groupies everywhere spend (company?) hours studying the stats, fretting over keepers and ranking players by position, we decided to draft our own dream team of football studs from flicks.

Sure, they're not all technically pros (try telling us Rudy wouldn't make an equally dynamic benchwarmer on the Buffalo Bills), but they're all well worth roster slots on our squad.

Qb: Willie Beamen ('Any Given Sunday')

Qb: Bobby Boucher ('The Waterboy')

Qb: Paul Crewe ('The Longest Yard')

Qb: Jonathan Moxon ('Varsity Blues')

Qb: Shane Falco ('The Replacements')

Wr: Vince Papale ('Invincible')

Wr: Rod Tidwell ('Jerry Maguire')

De: Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger ('Rudy')

Limitless Director Eyes Up Bonnie & Clyde Remake

28 July 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Bonnie & Clyde was right there at the forefront of what would become the New Hollywood explosion of the late 1960′s and early 1970′s. If you haven’t read them yet, check out Peter Biskind’s “Easy Riders, Raging Bulls” and Mark Harris’s “Scenes From A Revolution” for an essential education in just how significant a role Bonnie & Clyde had to play in the birth of an era that would give us some of the finest films Hollywood has ever produced.

All of that “pivotal role” stuff should also be considered alongside the unquestionable artistic merits of the film in its own right. Adopting a sepia-toned, desaturated look and feeling like it was made in, not just set in, the Great Depression, Bonnie & Clyde gave us outlaws to cheer for, sexual ambiguity, an intriguing commentary on celebrity and where it intersects with notoriety and career stand-out performances from Warren Beatty, »

National Lampoon's Vacation Remake Offered To Director Peter Segal

22 July 2011 8:51 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Pack up the station wagon and punch Wally World into your Gps device, because New Line is edging closer to committing cinema blasphemy by remaking Harold Ramis. cherished National Lampoon.s Vacation. And according to the L.A. Times, they want Nutty Professor II: The Klumps director Peter Segal at the helm. Kind of makes you feel like the dog tied to the back of Clark.s bumper, doesn.t it? Granted, Segal also helmed Tommy Boy and a handful of perfectly acceptable Adam Sandler comedies in 50 First Dates, Anger Management and The Longest Yard. When selecting a director for a Vacation remake, there are far worse choices a studio could make. (Hello, Dennis Dugan.) The bigger issue lies in the fact that New Line wants to remake Vacation, at all. Why fix a comedy that isn.t broken? Ramis. dysfunctional story of dimwitted father (Chevy Chase) taking his family »

Well, guess what guys, it looks that Vacation reboot is coming after all! Just in case you were worried about this comedy, we’ve just learned that John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have finished a second draft of the script, and apparently – it looks great!

Of course, we have no doubts about the whole thing and that’s exactly why we’re here today. I mean, after all, the above mentioned duo did some great job with Horrible Bosses movie, right?

So, according to 24Frames, studio New Line is eager to get moving on the reboot, and is reaching out to potential directors, including Peter Segal, the director of 50 First Dates, who has some experience with reviving classic comedies, having directed the remakes of The Longest Yard and Get Smart.

But first, let me remind you what guys from THR reported back in 2009! They said this reboot will focus on Rusty Griswold, »

Second Draft of ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’ Reboot Completed, Peter Segal to Direct?

21 July 2011 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] It's been a while since we heard about that National Lampoon's Vacation reboot, but if you were hoping Hollywood had forgotten all about it, I've got bad news for you. Last year, we reported [2] that John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (the duo behind this summer's Horrible Bosses) had been tapped to write the screenplay, titled Vacation (no "National Lampoon's"). As of now, the two have completed the second draft of their script, and New Line is actively seeking a director for the project. Read more after the jump. An unnamed source (who was "briefed on the project but not authorized to talk about it publicly") told 24 Frames [3] that Peter Segal was among the directors New Line had spoken to about the project. Segal's last two projects have been reboots as well -- 2008's Get Smart and 2005's The Longest Yard, neither of which garnered particularly positive reviews. His other credits include Anger Management, »

Kevin Nash Revealed to Have A Role In Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

10 July 2011 1:39 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Nash is a 52 year old former pro wrestler turned actor following in the footsteps of similar entertainers like Hulk Hogan and The Rock. Nash was in 2004's Punisher as the villainous Russian and did a pretty good job. Standing 6'-11" and weighing 315 lbs, it's likely that he's playing a similar role in this film but that's just my educated guess. Numerous sites are reporting that Kevin Nash has a big role in the upcoming Ghost Rider sequel. With his participation secret until now, I have to wonder what his role could possibly be? Besides featuring in the Punisher Nash's past acting credits include: Super Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991) Guard Engleheart in The Longest Yard (2005) Bass Armstrong in Doa: Dead or Alive (2006) Jayden Jacobs in River of Darkness (2010) Odin in Almighty Thor (2011) Colonel Crookshank in Monster Brawl (2011) Nash squared off »
