Where are the cast of Coyote Ugly now? Here's what happened to Piper Perabo, LeAnn Rimes and the coyotes

7 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

15 years ago today, the doors of the Coyote Ugly saloon swung open, turning a low-key Jerry Bruckheimer-produced coming of age film into a beloved cult hit.

But what happened to coyotes Piper Perabo, Tyra Banks and the rest of the movie's cast? To mark the movie's birthday we find out what they've all been doing in the 15 years since Coyote Ugly.

Piper Perabo

Since playing aspiring singer Violet Sanford in Coyote Ugly, Piper Perabo's career has veered from the sublime (2005's The Prestige) to the ridiculous (2008's Beverly Hills Chihuahua).

The film roles have kept on coming, but recently she's been best known as the lead in TV series Covert Affairs, which ran for five seasons on the USA Network between 2010 and 2014.

Adam Garcia

A star of the West End stage, Adam Garcia hot-footed from Saturday Night Fever to Coyote Ugly as Violet's love interest Kevin.

Good Kill DVD Review

16 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Andrew Niccol

Cast: Ethan Hawke, Bruce Greenwood, January Jones, Zoë Kravitz

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 102 min

With Andrew Niccol’s (Lord Of War, In Time) focus firmly fixed on the contentious and unfamiliar world of drone pilots, Good Kill reunites the writer-director with his Gattaca star Ethan Hawke (Training Day, Sinister), to evoke concerns about the use of drone technology and morality in war.

Set it the scorched landscape of a Las Vegas airbase, Good Kill follows the life of fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot Major Thomas Egan (Ethan Hawke) as he fights the Taliban via remote control for half of his day, before going home to his wife (January Jones) and kids for the other. Perpetually distant at home and increasingly reliant on alcohol, Egan’s psychological strain only intensifies when his team – led by Lt. Colonel Jack Johns (Bruce Greenwood) – is placed in the hands of new CIA masters, unshackled »

Monopoly movie lands The Truman Show writer

1 July 2015 10:25 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Monopoly movie is active again, as Lionsgate hires Andrew Niccol (The Truman Show, Gattaca) to pen the script...

It was back in 2008 that we first heard word of plans to make a movie out of the board game Monopoly. At that stage, it looked like it was going to be a directorial project for Ridley Scott, but as his slate filled up with lots of other films, it seemed as though Monopoly had been quietly forgotten about.

Hasbro, however, has other ideas. In conjunction with Lionsgate, the project has been resurrected, and Andrew Niccol - he of The Truman Show and Gattaca fame - has been hired to pen the screenplay for the new film.

Lionsgate wants Monopoly to be a "big, crowd-pleasing event film that will appeal to kids, families, and anyone who has ever played the Monopoly game".

And if you're still scratching your head wondering how »

Andrew Niccol to Write Lionsgate's 'Monopoly' Movie in the Works

1 July 2015 11:06 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Will they finally pass Go and collect $200? It sounds like it will happen this time! Lionsgate has announced officially that they're moving forward on development with a Monopoly movie, the next big franchise being readied based on a Hasbro brand. For years and years we covered development on Ridley Scott's version of a Monopoly movie at Universal, and it seemed like it was getting close to happening at one point. However, this new version doesn't have a director involved just yet. Instead, they say that writer/director Andrew Niccol (of Gattaca, Lord of War, In Time, The Host and Good Kill most recently) will be writing the screenplay. Not directing, just writing. That's the only bit of news other than that this is coming soon. Here's a quote from the news story, via THR, about Andrew Niccol's involvement in the Monopoly movie: "Hasbro is a partner with incredible global reach, »

Interview: Good Kill, Director Andrew Niccol Discusses The View From Above

14 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

With the drone warfare drama, Good Kill, opening in Canada and the Us this week, I had a chance to speak with director Andrew Niccol about the film briefly over the phone. But it was a very dense conversation that offers some insight as to what was keeping him up at night while making the film.The New Zealand born filmmaker has spend most of his career working in Hollywood as a writer (The Truman Show, The Terminal) and double-hyphenate director (Gattaca, Lord of War, In Time). Much like the voice of his films, there is a pragmatic, down-to-earth manner in his conversational tone balanced with a further-reaching inquiry as to what is right and what is wrong with us as we continue to barrel full...

Ethan Hawke on becoming a drone pilot for Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill

12 May 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

If Ethan Hawkeis known for one thing, it’s talking. Whether as the chatty Gen X-er in Reality Bites, the monologue-spouting romantic in the Before Sunrise movies or the opinionated dad in Boyhood, the guy can deliver dialogue.

So, at first, it’s a bit of a mystery why he was cast as Tom Egan, the quiet, emotionally shut down American military drone pilot at the centre of director Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill. Hawke agrees.

“Andrew called me up and said, ‘One of your greatest skills as an actor is how verbal you are. And I’m not going to need that,’” Hawke recalls during an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Good Kill is the pair’s third movie together after Gattaca and Lord of War. They made the film to show how drone pilots — in this case, carrying out missions in Afghanistan — operate, and the psychological »

Exclusive Interview: Ethan Hawke And Andrew Niccol Talk Good Kill

11 May 2015 8:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the most anticipated reunions at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Good Kill sees writer-director Andrew Niccol re-teaming with Gattaca and Lord of War star Ethan Hawke in a pressing psychological drama about drone warfare. After a successful stint on the festival circuit, the film is now getting a wide release and will be hitting theatres this Friday.

Back at Tiff, we caught up with both Niccol and Hawke to discuss the strange landscape of modern war filmmaking, and knowing when the realties of drone warfare seem too much like fiction to be believed.

Check it out below, and enjoy!

Andrew, you’ve mostly worked by looking into the future –with the exception of Lord of War, which you both worked on – but drones are the here and now. Why the change?

Andrew Niccol: I’m just drawn to that story. I don’t ever just sit down and go, »

Watch: Military Lingo 101 with the Cast of Good Kill

11 May 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ethan Hawke leads Good Kill as Tom Egan, an Air Force pilot who traded in his jet for an air-conditioned bunker just outside of Las Vegas. Even though Tom and his team are fighting the war first-person shooter-style right alongside a bunch of gamers recruited out of malls, military formalities still apply including the use of some unique lingo. While in New York City promoting Good Kill's upcoming release, I got the chance to talk to Hawke, his co-stars, Zoe Kravitz and January Jones, and writer-director Andrew Niccol about the unusual terminology and why they use it. Check out the video below to get a brief lesson in military lingo. We'll have more on Good Kill as we get closer to the film's May 15th limited release and its May 22nd nationwide expansion.

Nicolas Cage: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

6 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

It was August, 2005. I knocked on the double door at the Four Seasons. It opened almost immediately. "Hi, I'm Nic," he said, hand outstretched. Nicolas Cage wasn't who I expected him to be. Like all actors, he was smaller and trimmer in person than he appeared on-screen. Neatly dressed in an Armani suit, Cage also displayed none of the manic fervor in real life as had become his signature on-screen. He was thoughtful, well-spoken and incredibly literate in all seven arts. It's an infrequent experience that you leave an interview feeling you've just met someone that you could hang out with regularly, but I got that with Nic Cage, in spades. He was endlessly fascinating, but also kind of a regular guy. Another of my favorite chats I count myself lucky to have been part of.

Good Kill review

9 April 2015 5:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ethan Hawke stars in Good Kill, a drama-thriller from Gattaca director Andrew Niccol. Here's Ryan's review of a gripping film...

Writer-director Andrew Niccol is best known for his contribution to the sci-fi genre: In Time, the classic Gattaca and the elegant script for Peter Weir’s The Truman Show to name a few.

Good Kill isn’t a science fiction film, but its premise could easily come from a dystopian novel - or a darkly prophetic story by Philip K Dick.

Ethan Hawke plays Major Thomas Egan, a veteran pilot who controls unmanned aerial vehicles (or drones, as they’re often dubbed by the media) as they circle the skies of the Middle East. At the orders of those higher up the command chain, these drones can strike targets from 10,000km in the air - so high that someone on the ground could look up and not even see the craft gliding above them. »

Andrew Niccol interview: Good Kill, drones, Lord Of War

9 April 2015 5:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We chat to writer-director Andrew Niccol about his drama-thriller Good Kill, its drone warfare premise, Lord Of War and more...

Since his feature filmmaking debut began in 1997, writer-director Andrew Niccol has made diverse movies united by similar themes. Many of them deal with the way technology either impacts us in the present or will affect us in the future. More still meditate on social injustice.

Good Kill shares the concerns and thought-provoking tone of Niccol's best films, such as The Truman Show (which he wrote, and Peter Weir directed), In Time, Lord Of War and his masterpiece, Gattaca. Set in 2010, it's about the experiences of Major Thomas Egan (Ethan Hawke) - a distinctly 21st century brand of soldier. Once an adept pilot, he now clocks into work at a military base just outside Las Vegas, sits in an office chair, and launches aerial drone strikes over Afghanistan and other countries in the Middle East. »

Gattaca: looking back at Andrew Niccol’s Sf masterpiece

8 April 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Good Kill in UK cinemas this week, Ryan looks back at writer-director Andrew Niccol’s classic sci-fi debut, 1997's Gattaca...

It’s all there in that swooning opening music: Gattaca isn’t just another sleek film about the future. The feature debut of New Zealand-born director Andrew Niccol, the smart, elegant, intensely moving Gattaca may just be his finest film to date.

The film introduces us to Vincent Freeman (Ethan Hawke), who’s in the process of a carrying out a painstaking daily ritual: shaving every stray hair from his body, exfoliating his skin and burning the material left behind - it’s as though Vincent’s treating himself as a crime scene.

Vincent lives in a future where genetic profiling has divided society into Valids - those whose DNA has been fettled to perfection by scientists before birth - and In-valids - those conceived naturally, with all potential genetic flaws it involves. »
