With Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch reportedly set for three of the leading roles in season two of HBO’s True Detective, the hunt for the show’s female leads continues. Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams were recently named as favourites, but a new report lists Seven actresses in contention.
While they could still be in the running, it seems as if creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto is casting a wide net to find the right person for the still pretty mysterious role. Here’s the full list of True Detective candidates:
Brit Marling (Another Earth), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Kelly Reilly (Flight), Jessica Biel (The A-Team), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Jamie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World) and Rosario Dawson (Sin City).
However, a Variety reporter adds to the information in the video below by stating that McAdams and Moss are up for role of Vince Vaughn’s wife, »

Contrary to reports citing that actresses like Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Rachel McAdams (About Time) were close to signing deals to appear on the hotly anticipated second season of True Detective, their names do not appear on a new shortlist released by TheWrap. Today the site revealed the names of seven actresses currently vying to fill one of the series’ leading roles.
The actresses in question are, Brit Marling (The Keeping Room), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Kelly Reilly (Eden Lake), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Rosario Dawson (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) and Jessica Biel (Total Recall).
The actresses have reportedly been “invited back to read this week for the coveted role.” Moss and McAdams could very well still be in the running, but with writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto now focusing on auditioning a new group of actresses, he’s clearly taking all options into consideration. »

With films such as Narc, The A-Team and The Grey under his belt, you would think it would a little easier these days for director Joe Carnahan to get his films made. However, his latest film Stretch, a low-budget thriller made with small-budget horror specialists Blumhouse, the film was due to bow in March this year, but was dropped by Universal earlier in the year.
The film, which is now set to debut on VOD this month, has some big talent involved, including Chris Pine (Star Trek, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit), Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, Insidious), Ed Harris (The Rock, Snowpiercer), Ed Helms (The Hangover), Brooklyn Dekker (Battleship), and Jessica Alba (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), but it seems even they were not enough for the studio to fully back the film.
According to Deadline, Blumhouse is launching a new venture, Bh Tilt, aimed at putting together multi-platform releases »

For some, the fourth season of Haven might have started going a little goofy. For others, at least it moved somewhat away from the episodic focus, and paid attention to bigger issues. For still others, the show is really getting good. Wherever you fall, you don’t want to miss the premiere of the fifth season, and yes, even if you are among those who thought the show was not doing its best last year.
Things are going to be interesting right from the start, because it looks as though perhaps Audrey isn’t returning, and this may turn into the Mara show. Well, it doesn’t seem especially likely that this is a permanent direction the show will go, but who knows?
Take a look at the video below, and make sure you catch this one this Thursday!

On Friday afternoon at Baltimore Comic Con, there was a panel of various comics creators to discuss the line between characters being sexy or attractive people, or being seen as sexualized objects. With the recent outcry over Italian erotic comics artist Milo Manara’s variant cover for the upcoming Spider-Woman series, this is and will be an important topic of discussion among comics fans and creators with people straddling all areas of the divide. The “Sexy or Sexualized” panel, which was moderated by former DC Comics publisher Paul Levitz, included a wide variety of creators, both old and new, including Gail Simone (Batgirl, Red Sonja), Marguerite Bennett (Lois Lane, Batgirl), Dave Gibbons (Watchmen, Secret Service), Adam Hughes (Catwoman, Wonder Woman), Christina Blanch (The Damnation of Charlie Wormwood), and Thom Zahler (Love and Capes).The variety of backgrounds and points of views allowed for a lively discussion, which included audience participation as well. »

It doesn’t take much effort to guess what’s on the menu in “Evil Feed”, an over the top cannibal gore comedy-martial arts hybrid directed by stuntman and stunt co-ordinator Kimani Ray Smith, known for his work on the likes of “Watchmen”, “X-Men”, and other Hollywood blockbusters. Having made the short “Suffer” back in 2011, the film marks Smith’s feature debut, and sees him going the full-on splatter route with a bloody tale that really lets the red stuff fly while packing in plenty of low-brow humour and cheap titillation, all in the worst possible taste. The sketchy plot revolves around the aptly named Long Pig Restaurant, where the customers dine on human flesh while watching death matches beamed live from the “Pit of Gore” in the basement. Mad owner Steven (Terry Chen, “House of Cards”) and his equally psychotic assistant Yuki (Alyson Bath, “Bounty Hunters”) find themselves with »

I have many mixed tastes when it comes to horror and sometimes some movies just don’t work for me. Then there are ones that are crazy enough to not take themselves too seriously and just go for the crazy, and they catch me. Evil Feed is a film that mixes mixed martial arts, cannibalism and sex together in an orgy of cult sensationalism that refuses to let me hate it; I loved every minute of it.
When their friends disappear a group of martial artists are forced to infiltrate a Chinese restaurant where the menu is not exactly what it seems. With a fighting club being used to provide the meat for the dishes and the house »

We may be in the golden age of superhero cinema, but here are some DC movies that never made it…
Naysayers would have you believe that Hollywood chucks bucket-loads of cash at any old comic book movie pitch that happens to float through their corner-office window, get stuck to their shoe or come to them miraculously as an on-the-toilet epiphany.
However, this is not the case, particularly with DC comics characters. While some films that do get made may seem like bog-fodder (oh hey, Green Lantern), there are plenty of comic adaptation pitches, in-development scripts and passion projects that have ended up not getting made for various reasons.
We had a rummage through the aeons of DC cinema history (also known as extensive Googling) and pulled together all the comic book movie projects we could find that ended up in the bin of crushed dreams for Batman, Superman and more. »
