Exclusive: Interview With Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist Director & Star Joey Ansah

20 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist started life as a YouTube series, but director, writer and star Joey Ansah is now releasing the online hit in a feature length cut which hits DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray steelbook on October 27th. The movie was made in association with Capcom USA and blends top notch martial arts with an authentic adaptation of the iconic Street Fighter franchise. Ansah gained recognition for his role in The Bourne Ultimatum, and as well as playing fan-favourite character Akuma in this movie, he's joined by Mike Moh as Ryu, Christian Howard as Ken and Akira Koieyama (47 Ronin) as martial arts teacher, Gouken. I recently had the chance to talk with Joey over the phone about Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, as well as which other comic book and video games he would like to adapt and his thoughts on a faithful take on the X-Men in the near future. »

3 October 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Ever since they wrote Good Will Hunting 18 years ago, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been one of Hollywood's most well-known bromances. But no bromance is complete without some healthy competition, which is why we've gone back through the years since their first Oscar win and looked at their careers. With Samantha Highfill representing Matt Damon in one corner, and Joshua Rivera representing Ben Affleck in the other, here's how the fight breaks down: 1997 Damon: Good Will Hunting Sure, both Damon and Affleck won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, but only one of them was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor, »

'The Liberator' Interview with Edgar Ramirez | Exclusive

3 October 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

&#201dgar Ram&#237rez has been an actor on the rise for the past seven years, after he first came into prominence playing the deadly and mysterious Paz in The Bourne Ultimatum. Following roles in Vantage Point and Che (Part 1), the Venezuelan-born actor delivered a breakthrough performance in the mini-series Carlos, which lead to roles in Wrath of the Titans, Zero Dark Thirty, The Counselor and Deliver Us from Evil.

The actor takes on a character close to his heart in the fascinating indie drama The Liberator, where he plays the historic figure Simon Bolivar, who became a legend by literally liberating South American countries such as Peru, Panama, Northern Brazil, Panama, Ecuador, Colombia and the actor's home country of Venezuela. I had the chance to speak with the actor earlier this summer about The Liberator, which hits theaters on October 3. Here's what he had to say below.

Jeremy Renner Talks Matt Damon And Bourne

2 October 2014 4:55 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Like a kid trying to prise open a particularly stubborn piggy bank, there's a sense that Universal is still figuring out how best to exploit its lucrative Bourne brand. There's a sequel to the spin-off focused on Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross still rattling around in the tin, and meanwhile Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are reportedly back in the fold for Bourne 5. So will Jason Bourne and Aaron Cross eventually team up / fight / hang out in Denny's and have pancakes? Don't bet against it, says Renner. As the actor stressed to The Huffington Post, that dream Bourne, ahem, Cross-over is still on course."I think it really opens up the world and it keeps Bourne’s character active," said Renner of Damon's return during his press rounds for Kill The Messenger. "I think Cross’s character is already going to continue to be active." The bankability of the Bourne »

Jeremy Renner wants to team up with Matt Damon's Jason Bourne

2 October 2014 2:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jeremy Renner has said that he wants to see his Bourne franchise character team up with Matt Damon.

Damon and director Paul Greengrass departed the franchise after 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum. The series continued with 2012's The Bourne Legacy with Renner playing new agent Aaron Cross.

However, studio Universal has entered talks with Damon and Greengrass to return to the franchise for a sequel due in summer 2016. Renner told The Huffington Post that he wants to see Cross and Bourne together in the same movie.

"I think it really opens up the world and it keeps Bourne's character active," Renner said of Damon's potential series return.

"I think Cross's character is already going to continue to be active. I think it will take creatives to bring them together, which is what I think is ultimately the plan."

He continued: "I love the idea of Greengrass and Damon, or whatever it might be, »

Exclusive Interview With Edgar Ramirez On The Liberator

1 October 2014 7:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Directed by Alberto Arvelo and written by Timothy J. Sexton, The Liberator introduces us to Simon Bolivar, the military and political leader who played a key role in Latin America’s successful struggle for independence from the Spanish Empire in the 1800s. Bolivar was said to have fought over 100 battles in South America and ridden over 70,000 miles on horseback. But while his military campaigns covered twice the territory of Alexander the Great, he and his army were liberators instead of conquerors.

Playing Simon Bolivar in The Liberator is Edgar Ramirez, who is best known for his roles in Carlos, Domino, The Bourne Ultimatum and Zero Dark Thirty. We watch as Ramirez takes Bolivar from being the son in a rich family to becoming a man who finds a renewed sense of purpose when he joins the growing colonial revolt against the Spanish crown.

Jeremy Renner Comments on Matt Damon Returning to Jason Bourne Franchise

27 September 2014 4:59 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It was recently announced that Universal Pictures is in talks with Matt Damon and "The Bourne Ultimatum" director Paul Greengrass to return for another installment in the "Jason Bourne" franchise, possibly replacing Jeremy Renner's "The Bourne Legacy" sequel. Now that he's promoting "Kill the Messenger," Renner was asked whether he wants to star alongside Damon in a new "Bourne" film. "That's my hope. That's my dream. Will it happen? I do not know," he answered. "Last I heard is that Paul and Matt have cracked an idea, a reason to continue the 'Bourne' series." Renner continued: "We're still working on the Aaron Cross section of that and the worlds will definitely - hopefully - collide and they're still a part of each other. I think it makes it really exciting that I think even Universal is sort of like 'this is really fantastic news,' because now it's kind »

Chastain, Pena and Mara Targetting Roles in Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

25 September 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jessica Chastain is having one hell of a 2014 campaign, receiving much-deserved raves for her performances in the highly experimental The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, as well as for her turn in Miss Julie. And she's not done yet: the Oscar-nominated actress is widely expected to factor heavily into this year's awards race for her performances in two other films, Interstellar and A Most Violent Year, both due out later this year. And if recent casting rumors are to be believed, it seems Chastain doesn't have plans of slowing down soon. Sources over at Variety are reporting Chastain is in talks for a role in director Ridley Scott's science-fiction adaptation The Martian, based on Andy Weir's popular novel of the same name. If negotiations prove successful, Chastain would star opposite Matt Damon (The Bourne Ultimatum), who joined the cast last spring. amz asin="B00EMXBDMA" size="small"Michael Pena »

Predict Best Editing Oscar: Will it continue to line up with Best Picture?

23 September 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Best Editing is known for its close correlation with Best Picture. Since 1981, every Best Picture winner has at least been nominated in this category. And of those 33 races, 16 editing champs went on to win the top prize. -Break- Predict Best Costume Design Oscar: Will period and fantasy continue to dominate? Because editing is a non-visual art, it is not as easy to identify trends among winners. Action-heavy and suspense-driven films often prevail, including "Gravity," "Argo," "The Hurt Locker," "The Bourne Ultimatum," "Black Hawk Down," and "The Matrix." Lavish epics also frequently win, like "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" and "The Aviator." "Traffic" and "Crash" won in large part for juggling multiple characters and storylines, while "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The Social Network" featured complex flas »

Matt Damon Circling The Great Wall for Hero Director Zhang Yimou

22 September 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The film has been in development for years with Ed Zwick (Glory) previously set to direct with Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker attached to play the leads.  However, that plan crumbled, and Zwick eventually left to go direct Pawn Sacrifice, so Zhang Yimou (Hero) stepped in.  The story—based on an idea by Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull and World War Z author Max Brooks—explores the mystery of why the Great Wall of China was built.  You think it was to keep out the Mongolian hordes? You fool!  It Is So Much More.  It's also a tourist destination and a way for studios to tap into the lucrative Chinese market. Hit the jump for more. According to Deadline, Damon is interested in working with Zhang, and the two almost got together on Flowers of War, but that film ultimately starred Christian Bale.  Scheduling conflicts might get in the way »

Jason Borne Producer Says Both Matt Damon's and Jeremy Renner's Films are in the Works

18 September 2014 4:56 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It was recently announced that Matt Damon and his "The Bourne Ultimatum" director Paul Greengrass are in talks with Universal Pictures to return for a new "Jason Bourne" film. Insiders claimed that if the movie moves forward, it would replace Jeremy Renner's "The Bourne Legacy" sequel. Now comes word that things are far from final. Greengrass is said to have a strong concept for a new film, but it's not clear how he'll be able to work in writing and directing when he's also working on a film about accused Olympics bomber Richard Jewell, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. Meanwhile, producer Frank Marshall says that Renner's "The Bourne Legacy 2" is far from dead. "That movie is moving forward," he insists. "It's still in development. We're working to get a script as soon as possible." He added that at this point, both projects are being worked on simultaneously. But »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Paul Greengrass Could Direct Leonardo DiCaprio/Jonah Hill Project Before Bourne 5; Legacy Sequel Still Moving Forward

17 September 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A bombshell was dropped a couple of days ago when news broke that Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass are currently in discussions to return to the Bourne franchise, with Greengrass also penning the screenplay.  The prospect of the duo responsible for the brilliant The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum coming back to the series was an exciting one, but it raised a lot of questions about Universal’s other Bourne franchise.  When Damon and Greengrass departed the Bourne series, Universal kept the property alive with The Bourne Legacy, which saw Jeremy Renner playing another agent living and working in the same universe as Bourne.  The film did so-so at the box office, but Universal was happy enough that it began developing a sequel with director Justin Lin to hit theaters in 2016. When we learned that Greengrass and Damon were talking about returning to the Bourne series, we heard »

'Bourne' Producer Talks Matt Damon's Return: We're "On Two Tracks" Now

A version of this story first appeared in the Sept. 26 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Let's hope Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner don't bump into each other at a restaurant. In re-engaging with Universal to return to the Jason Bourne franchise with director Paul Greengrass after their contentious exit following 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum, Damon has put in jeopardy a planned follow-up to 2012's The Bourne Legacy that is set to star Renner and be directed by Justin Lin for a 2016 release. Several sources say that if deals and a story idea can be worked out with Damon, 43,

Matt Damon Headed Back To Play Jason Bourne Yet Again

16 September 2014 7:58 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Damon and director Paul Greengrass are making deals with Universal to team up for a new Bourne film.

As the old saying goes, you can't keep a good government assassin down. Jason Bourne – and not Jeremy Renner's semi-confusing Jason Bourne analog – is coming back as Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass are currently making a deal with Universal to reunite for a third time, according to Deadline.

This will be the fourth time Damon has stepped into the shoes of the titular trained killer, first playing him in 2002 in The Bourne Identity. Identity was directed by Doug Liman who handed the series' reigns over to Greengrass in 2004 for The Bourne Supremacy.

It was Greengrass who gave the franchise its iconic handheld 'shaky cam' look, which he used to acclaimed effect in the 2007 installment The Bourne Ultimatum, which was the last film Damon appeared in as the eponymous hero.
