First Look: Rupert Friend is Double Armed & Dangerous in 'Agent 47'

25 July 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Later today we'll get to see some footage from 20th Century Fox's franchise sequel Hitman: Agent 47 during the studio's Comic-Con panel in Hall H. This time it's not Timothy Olyphant in the role, but rather Rupert Friend as the bald, genetically engineered assassin from the video game series of the same name. There are no story details just yet, but we do have some first look photos of Friend in action with co-star Hannah Ware as Katia van Dees. But as of now, no sign of Zachary Quinto in the film. We're not excited about the film yet, especially with a February 2015 release, but maybe some good footage can convince us. Here's the first look photos from Aleksander Bach's Hitman: Agent 47 from 20th Century Fox: Hitman: Agent 47 is directed by Aleksander Bach, making his feature directorial debut with a script from Kyle Ward »

Ruffalo Wants To Get Rumpled For ‘Columbo’

18 July 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He embraced the big green angry one for The Avengers franchise, but it appears Mark Ruffalo has his sights on a lower key character for the future. Taking to Twitter, he has addressed rumours about a forthcoming Columbo movie with a decidedly non-non-committal response:

@MysteryExec @garywhitta Ed Soloman approached me on this about a month ago. We are thinking a movie.

Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) July 16, 2014

Though he’s shown a lack of detective work in the spelling of screenwriter Ed Solomon (who wrote Now You See Me featuring Ruffalo), the prospect of the legendary shambolic snoop being resurrected with a respected name is a bewildering yet enticing one. Forever associated with the late Peter Falk, the franchise has been routinely prodded with a stick over the past decade since ending in 2003. The A-Team star Dirk Benedict recently took the part in a stage production of 1962′s introductory play Prescription Murder »

Joe Carnahan Says Five Against A Bullet Is Likely His Next Film; Might Cast a Younger Lead

16 July 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Joe Carnahan doesn’t mess around.  His movies range from gritty thrillers like Narc to big summer tentpoles like The A-Team to thoughtful, existential dramas like The Grey, and recently he’s been delving into television to great success with The Blacklist and the upcoming State of Affairs.  Though his latest feature film, a small-scale crazy actioner called Stretch, is currently looking for a distributor, we recently learned that Carnahan is lining up another feature project in Five Against a Bullet.  The Wild Bunch-esque story revolves around five bodyguards that are hired to protect a Mexican politician through a contentious election after his father is murdered by a drug cartel. At the TCA Press Tour, Christina interviewed Carnahan in anticipation of his upcoming drama series State of Affairs, and the director touched on Five Against the Bullet, revealing that it will probably be his next film.  Check out »

Birthday Gallery: Patrick Wilson Turns 41

3 July 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Patrick Wilson has spent the last fifteen years as a triple-threat on Broadway, film, and TV, garnering two Tony nominations (for The Full Monty and Oklahoma), and Golden Globe and Emmy noms for the groundbreaking Angels In America.

One of our most versatile actors, he’s moved easily from such wildly diverse projects as The Phantom of the Opera, Little Children, Watchmen, The A-Team, Insidious, and Hard Candy, and he even starred in the unfortunately short-lived CBS series A Gifted Man.

Today is his 41st birthday, so let’s take a stroll down memory lane with a gallery of some highlights from Patrick’s career.

Joe Carnahan to Write & Direct 'Five Against a Bullet' at Sony Pictures

25 June 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While his action thriller Stretch is still waiting for a new release date after being pulled from the calendar this year, director Joe Carnahan is already setting up his next project. The Wrap has learned that The A-Team and The Grey director is set to write and direct Five Against a Bullet, an action thriller described as calling back to "classic macho movies" like The Wild Bunch and The Magnificent Seven. The film will follow five bodyguards hired to protect a Mexican politician over the course of a contentious election after his father is murdered by a drug cartel. Sounds like it could have been The A-Team sequel. Collider was the first to report on the project after speaking with Transformers franchise producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. The producer said, "It is a tale of a group of men who have become cynical, sort of lost their sense of hope about life and the world, »

Originally boasting a script by Alex Litvak, it’s the story of a Mexican politician whose father is slaughtered by a drug cartel. In order to stay alive during a campaign to clean up his local area, the canny politico hires the five best bodyguards available.The film attracted Bruce Willis’ attention in 2012, but things have been awfully quiet since then.

Joe Carnahan Will Write And Direct Five Against A Bullet

25 June 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane, Narc, Smokin’ Aces, The A-Team and The Grey on his resume, writer-director Joe Carnahan has certainly built his career on badass protagonists who fit traditional ideas of masculinity, which makes him a perfect fit for his next project - Five Against a Bullet, which Sony described recently as being in the spirit of The Wild Bunch and The Magnificent Seven.

The flick, which Carnahan will both direct and rewrite, working off an original script from Alex Litvak, follows a group of five bodyguards recruited to keep a Mexican politician alive during a controversial election after the politician’s father is brutally killed by a major drug cartel. Going off that, we can expect a lot of cool-as-a-cucumber badasses and plenty of explosive action.

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently spoke about Carnahan’s involvement with the project, stating:

Joe Carnahan to Write, Direct ‘Five Against a Bullet’ for Sony

25 June 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Joe Carnahan is set to write and direct “Five Against a Bullet” for Sony Pictures, TheWrap has confirmed. Described as being in the vein of classic macho movies “The Wild Bunch” and “The Magnificent Seven,” the story follows five bodyguards hired to protect a Mexican politician over the course of a contentious election after his father is murdered by a drug cartel. The project is right up Carnahan's alley, as the filmmaker has done a great job exploring masculinity in both “The Grey” and “Narc.” He also directed “The A-Team,” which brought together four unlikely heroes who save the world. »

Coherence movie review: night out of mind

20 June 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Deploys twisty sci-fi concepts to warp the almost-clichéd dinner-party soap opera into a horror story of the human condition in the face of quantum philosophy. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m hungry for smart science fiction

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Pro relationship tip: Do not go to a dinner party with a bunch of your friends who all have long-term interconnected relationships — with all the unresolved resentments and secret entanglements that can come with that — when there’s a quantum anomaly in the neighborhood. Not when there are important, even life-changing, decisions to be made at the same time.

See, just as Em (Emily Foxler: Ghosts of Girlfriends Past) is having to decide whether to fly off to Vietnam with her boyfriend, Kevin (Maury Sterling: Veronica Mars, The A-Team), for four months to accompany him for his work, »

Non-Stop Blu-Ray Review

18 June 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Liam Neeson may have launched his career with serious fare like Schindler’s List, but the moment Taken ignited at the box office, it became obvious that the actor had found his niche. Since that modern action classic, he’s led The A-Team, unraveled an assassination plot in Unknown, faced down wolves in The Grey and once again combatted human traffickers in Taken 2. The actor’s formula for these action flicks is pretty clear-cut. Neeson plays a gruff but likable badass, who’s hurtled into an impossible situation and forced to fight his way out, all the while maintaining his intrinsic dignity. The actor’s latest, Non-Stop, never tries to break away from that formula, though director Jaume Collet-Serra (who previously helmed Unknown with Neeson) does make a cliché-riddled ride enjoyable.

Quickly establishing a sense of claustrophobia and expertly handling a number of close-quarters action sequences, Collet-Serra proves capable »

22 Jump Street – The Review

12 June 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

This week’s new entry in the Summer movie schedule has the distinction of pulling off the seasonal cinema trifecta. So, what’s this multiplex “hat-trick”? Well, number one, it’s a big studio action comedy. Number two, it’s a feature film remake of a decades old classic TV show. And the topper, number three, it’s a sequel. Usually TV adaptations are done in one, like The A-team and Bewitched. 22 Jump Street is the follow-up to 2012′s surprise smash 21 Jump Street, based on the late 1980′s Fox TV crime drama (created by The A-team’s Stephen J. Cannell with Patrick Hasburgh) that propelled Johnny Depp to stardom. But the flick from two years ago wasn’t a straight-faced, literal movie expansion. Taking a cue from 1987′s Dan Aykroyd/Tom Hanks starrer Dragnet, 21 was a loving parody of the earlier cop show. Can Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum possibly »

Timeless Questions: Did Mr. T ever actually say ‘I Pity the Fool’ on ‘The A-Team’?

11 June 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) TV Urban Legend: B.A. Baracus never actually said “I pity the fool” on The A-Team. "The A-Team" was a fascinating hit TV series in that it was absurd even for the era in which it aired (1983-1987). The cartoon violence on the program was evident when, in the first episode, a jeep carrying soldiers pursuing the team flips over spectacularly and crashes (it’s an impressive enough shot that it was used in the opening credits for pretty much the entire run). Voiceovers, of course, quickly assure viewers that both the driver and passenger were fine after the crash. That was "The A-Team" in a nutshell: spectacular violence but people almost never actually got hurt, despite the A-Team’s extensive use of explosives and automatic weapons. "The A-Team" was about a team of soldiers who were wrongly convicted of a crime they didn’t commit in the »

Sharlto Copley discusses giving his 'Maleficent' villain human shadings

28 May 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sharlto Copley intrigues me. Here's a guy who was producing and directing little things, who suddenly captured Hollywood's imagination in Neill Blomkamp's surprise smash "District 9." Even though his "District 9" character, Wikus van der Merwe, was hardly a clean-cut, matinee idol showcase, Hollywood decided out of nowhere that Copley, who improvised much of his dialogue in "District 9," was a leading man, or at least a candidate to be a featured villain. Subsequently, Copley has taken roles in features like "The A-Team," "Oldboy" and, reuniting with Blomkamp, "Elysium." Each role could have positioned Copley for his next step up the A-list actor. Instead, the South African star has approached each of them with the dogged quirkiness of a character actor. The same is true in "Maleficent," where Copley's Stefan is a love interest and then an adversary for Angelina Jolie's title character. Working with a scraggly beard, a »

Soon after the success of District 9, Sharlto Copley found himself playing a number of unique and fascinating characters. From Elysium to The A-team, the actor clearly enjoyed playing wildly varied roles. In his latest, he portrays a man desperate for power even if it means giving up his true love. Once again, Copley gives his all in the fantastical Maleficent, opposite Angelina Jolie. We at JoBlo.com have been a fan of this actor for a long time. He is one of the most intriguing talents »

Although he's had big screen roles in films like The A-Team, Oldboy and the upcoming Maleficent, Sharlto Copley will always be remembered for his work with director Neill Blomkamp. Following his debut in District 9, Copley starred in Blomkamp's Elysium and is now set to play the title role in Chappie opposite Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel and Sigourney Weaver. ComingSoon.net caught up with Copley today at the press junket for Maleficent and learned a few interesting details about the the world of Chappie. »

Director Joe Carnahan Explains Why Daredevil Reboot Didn't Happen

12 May 2014 1:11 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

20th Century Fox made an attempt to get another "Daredevil" film into development, but despite having a script, it lost director David Slade (30 Days of Night), who dropped out to focus on other projects. By dropping out, he left "Daredevil" without a director and very little time before the rights were set to revert back to Marvel. Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-Team) got interested in the project, but ran out of time to get it in front of the cameras. During a new interview, Carnahan explained what happened. "What people don't realize about the ['Daredevil'] project is that the producers of the film got to me very late," he said. "They had a script that I read and I thought that while the action was wonderful, the story didn't really have any additional bite." Carnahan continued: "I suggested a trilogy as follows... 'Daredevil 73,' 'Daredevil 79' and 'Daredevil 85,' where »

Joe Carnahan: Death Wish remake "may be coming back"

6 May 2014 10:40 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It sounds as if director Joe Carnahan is going to have another go at getting Death Wish remade...

News

There's a strong argument that Michael Winner's Death Wish, starring Charles Bronson, has been remade several times already. Notwithstanding the collection of sequels, there have been plenty of films that have effectively told the same story. Take the Neil Jordan movie The Brave One, starring Jodie Foster, for a start.

But an official remake? At one stage, it was a project that Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-Team) was circling. Then it seemed to fall apart. However now, the new Death Wish may be back on the cards.

Chatting to Slash Film, Carnahan was asked about Death Wish, and he told the site that "you know what's interesting about that? [Death Wish] may be coming back around because that script, to me, is so special and so… that’s one that I’ll pay them to do, »
