Punching the Numbers: Where Liam Neeson Lies in the History of “Hollywood’s Most Bankable Action Star” Runs

22 June 2015 7:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Liam Neeson is Hollywood’s most bankable action star. That’s a statement of fact, but how do we know it is fact? How much more bankable is he than others? First off, we take a look at the box office returns for his action films and match them against the budgets and see what sort of averages and trends pop up.

1st Disclosure: I am not a sabermetrics genius, I’m just a guy that likes to write about action movies. If somebody out there who is a sabermetrics genius saw this and said “There’s a better way to do this.”, it would only bring me joy to see my amateur work improved upon.

2nd Disclosure: I won’t be including results of The Grey and A Walk Among the Tombstones in this pool of data, while both were marketed as action vehicles and have moments of action in them, »

139 movie sequels currently in the works

18 June 2015 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Celebrating Columbo's best star turns

16 June 2015 7:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Shatner, Nimoy, Dunaway, Johnny Cash and more. We take a look at some of TV detective show Columbo’s killer cameos...

Schlubby working class hero, Crime And Punishment’s Porfiry Petrovich for primetime, fatherly fighter of crime... I was introduced to the rumple-coated and rumple-faced one back in 1987, following an off-hand attempt from my mother to get five-year-old me to sit down and shut up for a few minutes. Desperately looking for something to grab my attention, and zeroing in on what ITV happened to be repeating that Sunday, her “Oh, look! Columbo! You like him, don’t you?” – “Huh?” – “He’s the one with the cigar and coat, you know him!” got me to sit down, be quiet, and puzzle over whether or not I did like him. She turned out to be right – I liked him a lot.

By then in the late 80s, Lieutenant Columbo had been »

'Bad Boys 3' May Have a New Director... and It's Not Michael Bay

10 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Update: Joe Carnahan (The A-TeamThe Grey) is in "early talks" to re-write and possibly direct the third installment in the Bad Boys series of action-comedies.

[Deadline] Back in August of 2014 Martin Lawrence officially announced the production on Conan O'Brien's show. Check out our original story on that below.   Previously...

Joe Carnahan in Talks to Write & Direct Bad Boys 3

10 June 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Joe Carnahan In Talks To Rewrite Script For And Direct Bad Boys 3. The director of films as as incredible as Narc (2002) and The Grey (2011) and films as mediocre and forgettable as Smokin’ Aces (2006) and The A-Team (2010) is in early talks to rewrite David Guggenheim‘s script for Bad Boys III and possibly direct.

Bad Boys (1995) was one of my favourite action films of the 1990s. All of Michael Bay‘s kineticism was on display, but restrained and measured. This was before he got all that ‘Fuck You Money’ and retreated to chugging out plastic rollercoaster rides in the form of Transformers movies. The attitude of that movie was fun and in your face, it was a rated R buddy-cop film that was filled with incredible action scenes.

The pinnacle of this great aforementioned combination of creative output is strangely found in Bad Boys 2, for most. I was always »

Joe Carnahan To Rewrite And Possibly Direct 'Bad Boys 3'

10 June 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For pretty much a decade, Sony has been trying to get Will Smith and Martin Lawrence to return and make "Bad Boys 3." In 2009, the studio hired Peter Craig ("The Town") to write a script, and when that one didn't take, David Guggenheim ("Safe House," "Stolen") was tapped to give it a whirl. And it seems more work needs to be done, and another high profile name is being brought into the fold. Joe Carnahan ("The Grey," "The A-Team," "Smokin' Aces") has been hired to rewrite the script with an eye to possibly direct the movie as well. So, time to start popping the champagne? Not quite. The most important cog in this machine, the picky Will Smith, hasn't agreed to anything just yet and Deadline notes that Sony is racing to get a new script done so the actor can "consider" the movie for his next project once he's finished with "Suicide Squad. »

Is Joe Carnahan Going To Direct Bad Boys 3?

10 June 2015 12:47 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It’s been a long time since we heard anything about Bad Boys 3, a movie that has been talked about a lot, but one I think we resign ourselves to never seeing the more we hear about it maybe happening. But the latest piece of news about the second sequel (fifteen years after Bad Boys 2) to Michael Bay’s most beloved franchise is something that fills me with hope, with Deadline reporting that Joe Carnahan, no stranger to big budget, over the top action thanks to The A-Team and Smokin’ Aces (but also capable of a whole lot more, as we saw with Narc and The Grey), is being brought in by Sony with an eye to re-write David Guggenheim’s existing script, and possibly direct if it finally goes forward. Michael Bay seems totally enamoured with giant CG robots at the moment, so if he isn’t returning, »

Joe Carnahan May Wrangle Bad Boys 3

9 June 2015 11:08 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The idea of a Bad Boys 3 has been floating around since at least 2009, but Sony hasn’t yet found an idea or script it really likes. Safe House writer David Guggenheim was most recently working up the screenplay, and now the studio has The Grey’s Joe Carnahan in early talks to take a crack at a new draft with an eye to potentially directing.It’s still all early days – Carnahan does not have a deal yet, but Sony definitely wants this brought to a place that could make Will Smith happy enough to sign on quickly, so that he can consider working on it after Suicide Squad. Whether that happens remains to be seen, and the third outing has certainly waited long enough already, so it can stand a bit more of a delay. But Carnahan as a director would also seem to be a good choice »

Bad Boys 3 happening, apparently without Michael Bay

9 June 2015 10:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Bay won't be directing the next Bad Boys film, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. But Joe Carnahan might...

It's little secret that plans have been afoot for a third Bad Boys movie for some time, with the problem, as producer Jerry Bruckheimer told us back in summer 2013, being reuniting the key personnel. Back then, he was "trying to find a hole in Will Smith's schedule", and with regards director Michael Bay (who helmed the first two films), "trying to get on his docket".

With Michael Bay's future seemingly tied into making endless Transformers movies right now though (as well as new sci-fi movie Time Salvager), it seemed that the chances of him finding time for Bad Boys 3 were slim. And so it's proven, as a new director is apparently now in talks to make the film.

Sony has turned to Narc, The A-Team and The Grey helmer Joe Carnahan, »

Bad Boys 3 movie: Joe Carnahan to write and direct?

9 June 2015 9:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bad Boys 3 movie A Bad Boys 3 movie could be written and directed by Joe Carnahan, the filmmaker who brought us the likes of The Grey, Smokin’ Aces and The A-Team movie.

We love Bad Boys here at Thn, and can’t believe that Michael Bay hasn’t serviced us with one since 2003. Now it looks like the challenge of putting a Bad Boys 3 movie onto the screen has fallen to The Grey director Joe Carnahan who is in very early talks to write and direct.

The filmmaker, who also brought us that rather brilliant Narc movie many years ago, will actually rewrite David Guggenheim‘s ‘strong draft’ for a potential Bad Boys 3 movie for producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Deadline, who broke the story, reveal that this could be Will Smith‘s next movie following his work on the Suicide Squad movie over at Warner Bros.

Bad Boys 3: The Grey's Joe Carnahan In Talks To Take Over Action Franchise

9 June 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Joe Carnahan, writer and director for action flicks like The Grey and The A-Team, has been reportedly approached by Sony to take over their Bad Boy franchise. According to reports Carnahan could be taking a look at a previous draft of the script from Safe House writer David Guggenheim and reworking it. Carnahan may also direct this third film. The same report over at Deadline suggests that Sony wants to get moving on this and sign up Carnahan so they have a film ready for Will Smith to consider once he is done with Suicide Squad. Martin Lawrence is unofficially waiting at home by phone for something, anything, to happen. Personally, I love the Bad Boy flicks. Ask me some time about the time I went to...

Bad Boys 3: Joe Carnahan In Talks to Write, Possibly Direct

9 June 2015 6:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, y'all -- Bad Boys 3 is still alive. About a year ago, we heard that Martin Lawrence was still interested in pursuing a third installment of the franchise, and David Guggenheim was working on a script. According to Deadline, that draft is now apparently being looked over by Joe Carnahan, who is in possible talks to write and/or direct the possible film. [caption id="attachment_282198" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Columbia Pictures[/caption] Surely part of the film's viability revolves around whether or not Will Smith will be able to return. Word is that the studio is looking to have everything in place for Bad Boys 3 soon enough that Smith might be able to slot it in after Suicide Squad. As for Carnahan, he would be taking the reins from the director of the first two films, Michael Bay. But Carnahan has cut his teeth both on well-received low-budget films such as The Grey, »

‘Bad Boys 3′: Joe Carnahan in Talks to Write, Possibly Direct Sequel

9 June 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony is eyeing Joe Carnahan as a potential director for Will Smith’s “Bad Boys 3.”

The studio is in early talks with Carnahan to do a re-write on a “Bad Boys 3″ script by “Safe House” writer David Guggenheim with an eye to directing.

Smith has been filming Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad” portraying the Floyd Lawton / Deadshot character.

Smith starred with Martin Lawrence in 1995’s “Bad Boys” and 2003’s “Bad Boys II” with Michael Bay directing both films. Both of the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced films were quite successful with the first grossing over $140 million worldwide and the second taking in over $270 million.

Other past credits include “The Grey, »

Liam Neeson's Top 10 Roles

7 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Liam Neeson’s career has come full circle.  

After his acting debut in 1978, at a commanding 6’4” Neeson found a niche for himself in action flicks like Excalibur, Krull and even Darkman in 1990 before transitioning into the seriously dramatic roles he was synonymous with throughout most of the 90s and early 2000s: Husbands and Wives, Schindler’s List, Nell and even as Jean Valjean in the non-musical Les Miserables. Sure he dabbled in action and blockbusters along the way, but Neeson was reborn as the latest action hero in 2008 with his role in the sleeper hit Taken.   

Spawning not one but two sequels, Taken launched the next chapter in the Irish actor’s career and leading to roles in The A-Team and Battleship. The actor returned to his father-on-a-mission role as Bryan Mills in Taken 3 once again this year. The film sees Mills chasing after the bad guy, except this time, »

The rise of Bradley Cooper: From Sex and the City to American Sniper

4 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper has become a huge Hollywood star in recent years. Unlike many top actors, who seem to burst onto the scene, Cooper slipped into our collective consciousness over time, moving from minor TV roles to cult movies until he was a bona fide blockbuster.

With the arrival of his latest hit American Sniper in Sky Store, we look back over the fascinating rise of Bradley Cooper:

The early years

As an unknown actor, Cooper made his television debut in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance in Sex and the City in 1999. His first significant role was opposite Jennifer Garner in Jj Abrams's Alias from 2001-06, not as Sydney Bristow's secret agent love interest but as her mild-mannered and slightly awkward reporter friend.

In 2008, he starred in sinister horror film The Midnight Meat Train, a story of a photographer who becomes obsessed with a New York City serial killer called the 'Subway Butcher'. »

Clever fans have inspired Lego to make many awesome sets of toy blocks based on their home-made creations, from Back to the Future to Ghostbusters.

Now with official playsets for The Big Bang Theory and Doctor Who expected later this year, we thought it was time we made something like last year's movies compilation and put together a wish list of our dream TV-themed box of bricks.

Come on, Lego, these are all but a licensing contract away.

1. Top Gear

This 540-piece set is slowly gaining support on the Lego Ideas website, and has so far reached over 2,000 of its required 10,000 votes for Lego to take it seriously. Clarkson may be on his way out, but the set still includes him and fellow members James May, Richard Hammond and The Stig, as well as two camera crew members, a Broken Toyota Hilux and a Power Lap board with lap times. »

9 franchise-starting young adult films that struggled

25 March 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

For every Harry Potter or Hunger Games series, there are those franchises that didn't quite set the world on fire...

Since Insurgent came out, I’ve been thinking about those less fortunate: the franchise wannabes. While Divergent may have succeeded financially, (a film that rode on the coat-tails of the even more lucrative The Hunger Games franchise) there are others who didn’t quite make it into the movie world’s big leagues. These are the franchise-starters that flopped, the films produced with the optimistic hope that they will bring in the readies and kick-start Hollywood’s latest franchise. Worse luck for them, really.

For the sake of simplicity, this list will zero in on Ya franchise-starters, films adapted from a young adult novel or with that audience in mind. There are plenty of more mature films that struggled such as Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time, The A-Team »
