Earlier this month we reported that Spike Lee’s proposed remake of Chan-wook Park’s harrowing revenge-thriller Oldboy hit another snag when Colin Firth walked away from the chance to play a calculating villain opposite Josh Brolin, who is set for the lead, a man who is abducted and held prisoner for years with no idea why, then is released just as abruptly and mysteriously. This hasn’t been Lee’s first public setback on the project, as one of Lee’s first picks for part of the horrific baddie, Christian Bale, as well as his choice for the female lead, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara, both passed. But now Twitch has revealed the film’s producers have offered the twice-rejected role to the ruggedly handsome Clive Owen, who previously worked with Lee on the bank robbery thriller Inside Man.
Undoubtedly, Owen is a great choice for the role, »

We hold in our hands the covers for DC Comics this February. As a child of four can plainly see, these comics have been hermetically sealed in a Cgc 9.9 slab, and they’ve been kept in a #2 mayonnaise jar under a giant stack of returned copies of Holy Terror since noon today.
What do we have worth noting? The new look of Darkseid, and we’re far enough into the new 52 books that it’s time for Batman to start crossing over in all of them. Plus Mara Jade, the red-haired assassin who fell in love with her blond-haired man she was sent to kill– oh, I’m sorry, that’s from Star Wars. This is Mera in a jade outfit. Our mistake.
Shall we? Surely!
As usual, spoilers may lurk beyond this point.

In an interview with Empire Online, legendary director Steven Spielberg talked about the development of future sequels for two of the biggest properties he has ever launched, Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones. While both of these franchises are huge name brands, and future sequels will probably rake in boatloads of cash no matter what, they’ve also both had some less than stellar installments already. So, artistically, if Spielberg is going to get us movie geeks to buy into the fact that more movies in these series are necessary, he’s got some explaining to do. Spielberg seems to readily admit that Jurassic Park 3 was a B-level film unworthy of carrying his weighty name in its credits, because he comes right out and assures us that a fourth installment won’t resemble that film in any way. He said, “The screenplay is being written right now by Mark Protosevich. I »

Just when you thought maybe the Great Director was burning out a bit, unaware of his own indulgences, Steven Spielberg speaks up and honestly and sounds just like the same casual, populist entertainer we’ve come to love and appreciate more than most.
Empire spoke to the filmmaker about the potential future installments in both his Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones sagas.
On Jurassic Park IV: “The screenplay is being written right now by Mark Protosevich. I’m hoping that will come out in the next couple of years. We have a good story. We have a better story for four than we had for three…”
Protosevich has made a career of writing Big, from The Cell to Poseidon to I Am Legend to a recent story credit on Thor. The Jurassic Park franchise seems right up his alley. And for those who don’t remember what the story »

When Christopher Nolan opted to prominently feature The Scarecrow in his Caped Crusader reboot, Batman Begins, fans were scratching their heads wondering why the storyteller didn.t go with a more recognizable foe from the hero.s canon, be it The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler or Catwoman. We now know that Nolan would use some of those antagonists in subsequent films, but it.s possible that the idea to showcase Scarecrow already was in Warner Brothers. collective mind, and Nolan simply figured out how best to do it. That.s because director Joel Schumacher, coming off of his second Batman film in 1997, was circling around the character as a potential villain for Batman Triumphant, based off of a script by Mark Protosevich (Poseidon, I Am Legend). And The Playlist quotes the director as saying he wanted none other than Nic Cage for the role. .I was supposed to do »
After directing Uma Thurman and Arnold Schwarzenegger to the most embarrassingly over-the-top, ludicrously pantomime and camp performances of their career’s in 1997′s Batman & Robin, just who was the man responsible thinking about one-upping himself with for the casting of his follow-up?
Well to the surprise of nobody, it seems it would have been the crazy eccentric Nicolas Cage. Though at that time, he was only 20% loony. He was coming off his Best Actor Oscar victory for Leaving Las Vegas and was the most in-demand actor in Hollywood after a run of cool turns in Face/Off and The Rock. It would have been yet another astonishing A-list casting coup for the Bat franchise, especially considering Tim Burton’s attempts to use him as Superman were just falling apart.
In a new interview with The Playlist, Schmaucher claims he was begging Warner Bros to allow him to cast Cage as the villainous Dr. »

Trevor Hogg chats to the Academy Award-winning cinematographer John Seale...
“I came out of the Outback using a little 8mm camera to record all of my family activities,” states Australian cinematographer John Seale whose experience in making home movies led him to his calling. “I wanted to get into the ABC because I met a guy there who took me through and was very excited by it all. That’s when the Australian Broadcasting Commission, being a government-run station, had a lot of money. They had the best Steroflex cameras, and the latest of this and the latest of that, whereas the commercial companies were using old Second World War combat cameras.” After 18 months of persistence, the aspiring filmmaker was hired by the public broadcaster; he was mentored by a group of ex-World War II combat cameramen who taught him the fundamentals such as how to “pan and follow [racing horses] right »

Here at FanGirlTastic (soon to be Planet Fury), we're nothing if not responsive to our readers' needs and requests. Recently, reader Private J.V. Vasquez expressed interest in a certain upcoming movie, which we had yet to cover. You asked for it, Pvt. Vasquez, so here it is: a look at the soon-to-be-released thriller, Contagion.
As the inquiring Pvt. Vasquez noted in the forums, at first glance Contagion appears to be nothing more than another version of the 1995 potboiler Outbreak. And that's a fair assessment. The two movies have a lot in common. They are both about a deadly, fast-spreading virus. Also, both contain a number of huge stars in small roles, giving each actor a few minutes to pop in, chew up a big hunk of scenery, and exit stage left. But there is one major difference between Outbreak and Contagion — the directors.
Check out the new images from Shark Night 3D where a summer weekend turns into a blood-soaked nightmare for a group of college students hunted by blood-thirsty underwater predators…And In A Lake!!
Click Here to see the shark bait photos Relativity Media released in July at Comic Con. Look for the film in theaters September 2nd.
Arriving by boat at her family’s Louisiana lake island cabin, Sara (Sara Paxton) and her friends quickly strip down to their swimsuits for a weekend of fun in the sun. But when star football player Malik (Sinqua Walls) stumbles from the saltwater lake with his arm torn off, the party mood suddenly darkens. Nick (Dustin Milligan), a shy pre-med student, finds himself taking charge – administering first aid and informing Sara they dont have a minute to spare to get Malik to a hospital on the other side of the lake.

Update: At Comic-Con today, Steven Spielberg appeared on the panel for The Adventures of Tintin and said there's a writer for Jurassic Park 4. The reality is that I've learned that screenwriter Mark Protosevich hasn't been officially hired yet by Universal which is just starting the process of making his deal. But Kathy Kennedy and Spielberg have picked him to deliver the fourquel script. Protosevich's credits include I Am Legend, Poseidon, The Cell, and the story for Thor. He's working on Spike Lee's Oldboy (which Spielberg at one time wanted to do). I checked with Universal just now and they think that, after stops and starts and stops, JP4 is really going to get made this time around. But already there's a timing issue. Spielberg today said: “Hopefully we will make Jurassic Park 4 in the next two to three years.” But Universal tells me "that sounds too long. It would »

NBC’s mid-season drama The Firm, continuing the story from the 1993 film based on the John Grisham novel, has added talent on both sides of the camera. Juliette Lewis (Cape Fear) and Callum Keith Rennie (The Killing) have joined the cast, while Law & Order: Special Victims Unit veteran Helen Shaver will tackle production and directing duties.
The Firm was ordered by the network earlier this year, with perennial that guy Josh Lucas (The Lincoln Lawyer, Poseidon) tapped to play Mitchell McDeere – the role that Tom Cruise played almost twenty years ago. Lewis will play Tammy, Mitch’s “feisty” receptionist. Her personality clashed with the button-down world of high-stakes litigation – think Abby on NCIS.
She’s in an ever-shifting relationship ...

If you haven’t seen it, remedy that situation at the earliest opportunity. Oldboy is an incredible, visceral experience, weaving a revenge tale and a mystery together to hugely impactful effect. It can be pretty harrowing at times, but the stand-out virtuoso scene, as star Min-sik Choi works his way down a corridor of goons armed only with a claw hammer, has to be seen to be believed.

Rumours have been going around for a while that Will Smith wanted to appear in a Us remake of the Korean original, which frankly would present a significant challenge to the considerable talent of the once Fresh Prince. Dialling back his trademark wise-cracking to something a lot more measured and restrained (a la I Am Legend or The Pursuit of Happyness) would be absolutely essential, for a start.
Will Smith may still be on board, considering that he »
