Taskmaster Rights Revert To Marvel Studios

28 December 2015 8:27 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It looks like one Marvel character which was residing over at 20th Century Fox has now jumped back over to the stable at Disney & Marvel Studios - Taskmaster.

Talking about the recent "Deadpool" trailer again this week with Empire, that film's director Tim Miller seemed to suggest that the character is no longer a part of Fox's stable of Marvel characters like the X-Men and Fantastic Four:

"I'd love to see Deadpool fight Batman - no, I'm just kidding, that's not even in the Marvel family! I'd love to see Deadpool go up against Taskmaster who's another Marvel total f--kin' badass. But if I was to stay inside the Fox family, I would like to see him fight X-23, the female Wolverine. The female clone of Wolverine."

Heroic Hollywood followed-up on those comments with their sources who "confirmed to me that the character rights no longer lie with 20th Century Fox. »

John Wick 2 Adds Common And A Bad Ass Returning Character

26 October 2015 8:27 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

2014's John Wick kicked all sorts of ass at the box office, so naturally a sequel was bound to be in the cards. But with a new film comes a bold mix of old favorites and new competitors . which is reflected in John Wick 2's announcement that Common and Ian McShane will be joining the sequel's cast. The Hollywood Reporter grabbed the scoop that the musician turned movie star is putting his skills as a cinematic assassin to work yet again, as the main baddie who will tangle with Keanu Reeves' titular assassin. McShane, on the other hand, will be coming back to his role of Winston - the owner of the infamous Continental Hotel.  Common's casting is not that big of a stretch, as he's fought against assassins in Smokin' Aces, while also playing one himself in this year's Run All Night.

'Godfather' Star Alex Rocco Passes Away at Age 79

20 July 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Actor Alex Rocco, best known for playing mobster Moe Green in the 1972 classic The Godfather, passed away on Saturday in his Studio City, California home at the age of 79. The actor's stepson, Sean Doyle, confirmed to The Los Angeles Times that the actor passed away after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer. The actor's long career spanned 50 years, with over 150 TV and film credits.

Alex Rocco was born Alessandro Federico Petricone Jr. in Boston, who caught the acting bug at the age of 30, when he took an acting class to meet women. After moving to Los Angeles, he took a class taught by Leonard Nimoy, who promptly kicked him out because he couldn't understand his thick Boston accent. He then enrolled in a speech class which transformed his Boston accent with a New York accent, which Leonard Nimoy said he could work with. He made his acting debut with the 1965 Russ Meyer film Motorpsycho! »

Joe Carnahan is Eying 'Bad Boys 3'c I'm In

10 June 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As a fan of Joe Carnahan's work -- Narc, Stretch, Smokin' Aces, The Grey -- I'm pretty much up for whatever he's working on next and the idea of him stepping in for Michael Bay and taking over the Bad Boys franchise sounds like something right up his alley. Word from Deadline is Carnahan has been brought on to take a pass at David Guggenheim's script for a Bad Boys 3 with eyes at possibly directing. The goal is to have the project ready for Will Smith to consider as soon as he's done shooting Suicide Squad with David Ayer. Considering Smith could use a couple big hits after After Earth and the modest returns for Focus, I have to imagine he'd be up for returning to one of his most popular franchise and I think we all know Martin Lawrence is in. In fact, Lawrence was on »

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. »

Chris Pine to Play Steve Trevor in 'Wonder Woman'

27 May 2015 2:40 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Variety is reporting Chris Pine (Star Trek) is in negotiations to join the cast of Wonder Woman, playing the role of Wonder Woman's love interest, Steve Trevor. Still early in the development cycle, Wonder Woman has experienced its fair share of adversity. Recently, Warner Bros. had to hire a new director, Patty Jenkins (Monster), to take over for Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones) after rumored behind the scenes difficulty. There have also been numerous reports over the studios indecision over what script to go with after hiring multiple writers to work on scripts. None of this takes into account the many years of passing on scripts from the likes of Joss Whedon and the failed TV pilot from 2011. Now with the news of Chris Pine joining Gal Gadot, as Wonder Woman, in the cast, I am beginning to worry for this film even more. Pine is a fine actor, »

Joe Carnahan is Taking 'Motorcade' for a Spin Over at DreamWorks

12 March 2015 7:12 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Right around the time that I started writing here at FirstShowing in 2009, there was a project called Motorcade in the works. At the time, Ryan Reynolds had just been brought in to replace Tom Cruise in the project, and "24" executive producer Jon Cassar was replacing Len Wiseman in the director's chair. But it's been over five years since that news surfaced, and the project has been dead in the water. But today it has new life as Deadline reports DreamWorks is bringing in Smokin' Aces, The Grey and The A-Team director Joe Carnahan to get the project in gear and finally get it into production. So what's this film about again? Motorcade follows a disgraced Secret Service agent who happens to be in the wrong place at the right time when the president's motorcade is commandeered by terrorists in New York in an effort to kidnap the world leader.

Joe Carnahan Is Going To Terrorize The President

12 March 2015 3:07 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Joe Carnahan, one of the most ballsy directors doing his thing at the minute, has decided on his next project after hitting so many stumbling blocks on getting his last movie, Stretch, distributed. Motorcade will see Carnahan return to directing for a studio, namely Dreamworks, in a movie that was probably pitched as Olympus Has Fallen on wheels. When Potus is attacked as he makes his way across Los Angeles, the only person who can save him is a disgraced former Secret Service agent (naturally) who is in the wrong place at the right time. Carnahan's CV suggest he's perfect for this, considering the vehicular mayhem in Stretch, The A-Team and the all out action of Smokin' Aces. If it were up to me I'd throw all of the budget at getting The Rock on board and push for a hard 18's proper action movie. Let us know who you »

Joe Carnahan Set to Direct One Time Possible Tom Cruise Starrer 'Motorcade'

11 March 2015 4:14 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Before Tom Cruise decided to star in Knight & Day for James Mangold he was considering several projects. One was The Tourist, which Johnny Depp ultimately took, another was The Matarese Circle, which would have put him alongside Denzel Washington with David Cronenberg directing and the other was Motorcade, a thriller that was, at the time, to be directed by Len Wiseman, who instead went on to direct the Total Recall reboot. Looking at those options, it seems Cruise made the best choice for the time, but Motorcade never really died and Dreamworks is now ready to bring it back to life. It was just announced Joe Carnahan has been brought aboard to direct the thriller which pits the U.S. president against terrorists who commandeer his motorcade on the streets of Los Angeles and Carnahan is bringing along his Smokin' Aces star Ryan Reynolds to play a disgraced Secret Service »
