Rourke Refuses To Talk About Tarantino Movie Departure

7 November 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mickey Rourke has refused to comment on why he left director Quentin Tarantino's latest film Grindhouse, insisting he'll stay silent until Tarantino speaks out first. Rourke was set to play the part of Stuntman Mike on the Kill Bill director's latest collaboration with director Robert Rodriguez, and was later replaced by Kurt Russell. The 9 1/2 Weeks star had previously worked with the directors on the hit movie Sin City and hints there might have been a falling out with Tarantino. He tells Radar Online, "You know what? He hasn't made any comments about it. And until he makes a comment about it, I'm not going to say anything. It just didn't work out. And I hope that's what he has to say. I'm just going to wait." The actor was supposedly Tarantino's first choice to play the movie's villain and he hints in the interview that he was actually the one who passed on the role and he wasn't fired from the film. Rourke also turned down a role in the film that made Tarantino's career, Pulp Fiction, back in the early 1990s. »

Alba Refused To Strip for 'Sin City'

12 October 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jessica Alba refused to bare all while playing a stripper in Sin City, because she was too nervous to show her naked body. The 25-year-old was given the option to appear naked by the film's directors Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, but decided to pass up the offer. She tells Elle magazine, "I don't do nudity. I just don't. Maybe that makes me a bad actress. Maybe I won't get hired in some things. But I have too much anxiety." Alba was furious when Playboy magazine bosses published a photo of her wearing a bikini in their March issue, which she claims suggested she had posed naked inside. She adds, "It was against who I am and what I represent. I've been working so hard to be somebody else, and it just wasn't cool." Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner apologized and made undisclosed donations to two charities Alba supports to help make amends. »

Interview: Christian Volckman

5 October 2006 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- The year is 2054. The city, Paris. Walled off from the rest of the world, Paris has been expanded in every direction—up, down, and inward—but out, resulting in a futuristic maze-like metropolis superimposed over the classical architecture for which the city is world famous. A network of streets and passageways (and also waterways) crisscross the airspace between street level and the heights of the city’s towers. Glass enclosed shopping centers operate below ground. Images on billboards move and speak, advertising the sale of eternal youth and beauty. Among these streets a woman in her early twenties is kidnapped outside a dance club in an intense, stylish, and bizarre sequence that projects through the windows of your mind like a scene from a David Lynch remake of Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train animated by Frank Miller. The title of the film is Renaissance. Distributed across North America by Miramax Films, »

Rourke's "Homophobic" Rant

4 October 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mickey Rourke has been forced to dismiss claims he's homophobic after launching into a foul-mouthed rant about a "fag" he almost punched in New York City. The Sin City actor insists he has lots of gay friends and "faggot" is a word they "toss around" all the time, without any derogatory meaning. But Rourke has upset many in the Big Apple's gay community with his potentially offensive comments. Speaking about a recent near fight with a drunken fan, the tough guy actor said, "He was really, really out of control - some big f**king obnoxious fag. I don't mean fag in a derogatory way, just like the guy was a f**k off. Look, I'm not afraid to say the word fag. I've got plenty of gay friends. We toss the word around. If I wanna say fag, I'm gonna f**king say it. And if somebody has a problem with that, they can kiss my f**king a*e." »

Blanchett a Vixen

25 September 2006 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- Quick Links > Cancer Vixen: A True Story > Cate Blanchett > Babel > The Good German > Notes From a Scandal > The Golden Age > I'm Not There First graphic novels were being turned into films (Sin City), then memoirs (Running With Scissors), and now in a new genre all its own - the graphic memoir will have its place in the limelight. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Cate Blanchett is attached to star in Cancer Vixen: A True Story based on the book by Marisa Acocella Marchetto. Marchetto, a cartoonist for Glamour and the New Yorker, wrote her autobiography around her trials with breast cancer while striving to maintain a fashionable lifestyle. The book, although it won't be released until later this week, has already generated a fair share of buzz, paving the way for big screen success. Working Title currently owns the film's rights and Blanchett and husband Andrew Upton are in discussions to produce. »

Owen Defends Bond Rival Craig

20 September 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Clive Owen is the latest star to defend the casting of Daniel Craig as James Bond, even though he originally hoped to land the role. The Sin City actor was tipped for the coveted part of the suave superspy before Craig was announced as Pierce Brosnan's successor last year. But Owen is thrilled that a "proper actor" has finally been cast as 007, and insists new movie Casino Royale will silence Craig's critics. He says, "I think when Craig first took the part he got a pretty rough ride, which to a certain extent is inevitable because there are so many different people who have so many different ideas about something like that. You are never going to please everybody. The thing that is really exciting is that he is a proper actor. He is not shallow or posing, they have cast a really serious actor and I think that when the film comes out everyone will see what a great choice he was." »

Desperate Housewives hunk Jesse Metcalfe was left red-faced on a US chat show on Monday night when actress Rosario Dawson quizzed him about his marriage plans. The actor was appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show to promote new film John Tucker Must Die when Sin City star Dawson, who was also a guest, wanted information about his love life. Metcalfe was trying to play down his romance with British pop star Nadine Coyle on the show when Kimmel showed off the couple's cover shot and spread for OK! magazine. And when the chat show host quizzed the coy actor about his marriage plans, Dawson chipped in, "It says on the cover (of the magazine), 'They want to get married and have kids... It has quotation marks.'" Kimmel thanked eagle-eyed Dawson and continued to quiz Metcalfe about his plans to settle down. »

Murphy Slams Eating Disorder Claims

6 June 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sin City star Brittany Murphy has lashed out at claims she has suffered from an eating disorder, insisting she has always been the same weight. The star became self-conscious after speculation over her small frame increased, but she maintains she merely appears slimmer because she has matured. The 28-year-old says, "I'm the same size I was in Clueless; it's just that the weight in your face changes as you grow and get older. I used to feel embarrassed about being too tiny. I had a publicist at the time who told me that I should cover my arms up in photos. She felt that if I did that, they would stop picking on me. She meant well, but it made me really self-conscious. Then I came to terms with it... This is my body; I'm proud of it, so who cares? Now I've stopped trying to eat 12 eggs for breakfast. I'm healthy which is the most important thing." »

10 April 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The prehistoric pachyderms of 20th Century Fox's Ice Age: The Meltdown weren't in any danger of extinction as the animated hit easily hung on to the top spot in its second weekend of release. While three new wide releases -- Sony Pictures' The Benchwarmers, New Line Cinema's Take the Lead and MGM's Lucky Number Slevin -- elbowed their way into the top five, Meltdown won the survival of the fittest by taking in an estimated $34.5 million to bring its North American haul to date to $116.4 million, becoming the year's first $100 million-plus release. Together, the top 12 films grossed an estimated $105.1 million, up 33% over the comparable weekend last year, when Paramount Pictures' desert adventure Sahara topped the listings with an opening weekend of $18.1 million and Dimension's Sin City, in its second weekend, took in $14.2 million. The upsurge marks the third consecutive weekend in which boxoffice has been up compared with the previous year. »

Like a dam bursting, 20th Century Fox's Ice Age: The Meltdown inundated the North American boxoffice for the weekend, as moviegoers rushed their multiplexes to give the animated movie a record-breaking debut of an estimated $70.5 million.
