1 July 2015 8:01 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Warning: the power of Christ may compel you while watching the new featurette from the Neveldine-directed film The Vatican Tapes. Also showcased in this round-up: "The Battle of Endor" episode of the Real Fake History series and a teaser for Fear the Walking Dead.

The Vatican Tapes: A spiritual showdown between Father Lozano (Michael Peña) and a powerful demon takes center stage in director Mark Neveldine's (Crank, Crank: High Voltage) The Vatican Tapes.

"The Vatican Tapes follows the ultimate battle between good and evil- God versus Satan. Angela Holmes is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It’s all up to Father »

Can you help us buy Jason Statham's house?

19 June 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jason Statham's home is for sale, for a cool $8.999m. Our crowdfunding campaign begins right here...

We've been alerted to the news that the mighty Statham is moving house. Ordinarily, we wouldn't be distracted by such gossip magazine tittle tattle, until we discovered the listing for his old place.

It would be fair to say that this is the moment we've been waiting for. The entire history of Den Of Geek has been built for this moment.

Friends: The Statham is asking just shy of $9m for his old place in the Hollywood Hills. It's got six bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as, we hope, ample room to stage balletic bar brawls when his mates come round for drama night.

Let's get to the bones of it. We want it, and we can't afford it. Even if the great man gave us a special Den Of Geek, which he suspect he might. »

The Vatican Tapes: New Images of the Possessed

18 June 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Seemingly the proper first stills from Mark Neveldine’s foray into horror and demonic possession, The Vatican Tapes, have arrived.  I’m continuously curious, “What does a Mark Neveldine-directed horror film look like?” As one half of the duo which brought us the manic, unhinged Crank films, will a horror film like The Vatican Tapes  go big, brash and…

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, »

Box Office Democracy: “Spy”

9 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

I wonder how many excellent movies we’ve been cheated out of by Melissa McCarthy’s commitment to Mike & Molly. I understand the appeal of a regular paycheck and the success of the show has led to McCarty being the highest paid actress in Hollywood but Spy is such a good movie and couldn’t she be doing two or three of these per year instead of one and a season of bad television? Spy is the funniest movie I’ve seen in years and it isn’t close. I laughed so often and so hard I’m sure that I laughed over important dialogue and even other jokes. It’s the kind of movie that can shift the paradigm of movie comedy in the way the Judd Apatow movies of the early 2000s did and it can even be the movie you throw in your idiot friend’s face »

Daredevil Season 2: 10 Actors Who Could Play Bullseye

8 June 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Netflix’s Daredevil series had everything you could want from an adaptation of the comics. Matt Murdock, unlucky in fights, lucky in love! Foggy Nelson, charming nuisance! Night Nurse! The Hand! That Greek girl Matt dated but “it didn’t work out”! Almost every part of the Man Without Fear’s wide mythology was accounted for. Almost.

One of Daredevil’s most enduring enemies, Wilson Fisk, was there, but where was his enforcer? Bullseye, the assassin with the perfect deadly aim, has been as much responsible for making Matt Murdock’s life hell as the Kingpin is. In fact in the comics, Bullseye is responsible for killing off two of Daredevil’s major love interests.

A class-act psycho with unparalleled fighting skills, this week’s rumour had it that Jason Statham was a dead cert to play Bullseye in the second season of Daredevil. Then the Crank star »

Transporter 4 For Jason Statham? Here's What He Said

8 June 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jason Statham is all over the place, kicking ass in high-octane action films, and even stretching into comedy with the espionage send up Spy. He.s also not opposed to appearing in franchises, like the Fast & Furious films or The Expendables, but he recently said he will not be returning to one of his best known, The Transporter, but is totally game for more Crank. While doing the press rounds for Spy, Yahoo caught up with Statham and McCarthy and fired off a barrage of questions during a lightning round three-minute interview. When asked about the possibility of returning for The Transporter 4, Statham was brief, brusque, and got his point across with a one-word response: Never. That seems rather clear and doesn.t leave a lot of room for optimistic fans of Statham.s character, Frank Martin, to interpret his statement. At least it doesn.t leave much hope of »

Statham Out Of "Daredevil" Due To Leak?

6 June 2015 7:53 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Yesterday's rumor about Jason Statham has been followed up by another today, one that takes the opposite stance to that first rumor.

Bloody Disgusting reports that Jason Statham was indeed in negotiations to play Bullseye in the second season of Marvel and Netflix's "Daredevil" as was rumored yesterday. However, and despite an overwhelmingly positive response from fans, yesterday's leak has apparently ended the deal.

The site says Statham: "was legitimately in heavy negotiations for the role and the leak killed it. Perhaps his agent saw the positive uproar and instantly upped the actor’s asking fee? Perhaps the studio spotted the same excited reaction and preemptively killed the deal out of fear of Statham’s management going for more money? Who knows. The bottom line is that yesterday the Crank star was at the top of the list and deep in negotiations and today Marvel has moved on to other pastures. »

Jason Statham Drops Out Of Daredevil Negotiations

5 June 2015 8:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, this was certainly unexpected.

Yesterday, rumor hit that Jason Statham was circling the villainous role of Bullseye in Marvel’s Daredevil, which was met with widespread excitement across social media. Now, we’re hearing that the Furious 7 actor has removed himself from those negotiations, because of that information leak.

That’s right, Jason Statham was very much in talks to play Bullseye, but has now taken his name out of the running due to the fact that the news broke early.

More News From The Web

This sad and sudden update comes from Bloody Disgusting, who report the following:

“Long story short? [Statham] was legitimately in heavy negotiations for the role and the leak killed it. Perhaps his agent saw the positive uproar and instantly upped the actor’s asking fee? Perhaps the studio spotted the same excited reaction and preemptively killed the deal out of fear of Statham »

Jason Statham Drops Out Of Daredevil Negotiations After News Of His Involvement Leaked?

5 June 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Rumours are great and all, but there's a serious downside to them when it comes to casting in particular. Yesterday, Latino-Review revealed that Jason Statham was in talks to play Bullseye in season two of Daredevil, news which was met with an overwhelmingly positive response from fans. According to Bloody Disgusting, the British actor "was legitimately in heavy negotiations for the role and the leak killed it.  Perhaps his agent saw the positive uproar and instantly upped the actor’s asking fee?  Perhaps the studio spotted the same excited reaction and preemptively killed the deal out of fear of Statham’s management going for more money?  Who knows.  The bottom line is that yesterday the Crank star was at the top of the list and deep in negotiations and today Marvel has moved on to other pastures." Each of those possible theories make perfect sense. There's nothing to say he »

Rumour: Jason Statham for Daredevil's Bullseye?

5 June 2015 2:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In possibly the most Den Of Geek-relevant rumour of all time, The Stath is being linked to a role as Bullseye in Marvel's Daredevil...

We don't always share rumours on this site, but this one's too good to be true: Jason Statham is purportedly under consideration for the role of Bullseye in Marvel's much-loved Daredevil series on Netflix. Just take a minute to breathe that in... Could this be the Den Of Geek-iest rumour of all time? Is someone pulling our leg?

The rumour comes from Latino Review, who have something of a chequered history with hitting the target (arf) rumour-wise. They've undeniably got it right on a fair few occasions, though.

For the uninitiated: Bullseye is a sharp-shooting hit man with a long history in Marvel Comics lore, dating back to 1976. He's known for never missing his mark, and was played by Colin Farrell in the Ben Affleck movie. »

Interview: Hilarious Writer & Director Paul Feig, of New Film 'Spy'

4 June 2015 7:25 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – He’s not a household name, but he has certainly rocked a few houses…with laughter. Writer/director Paul Feig has a new film called “Spy,” in which he re-teams with two of the supporting cast of his “Bridesmaids” romp, Melissa McCarthy and Rose Byrne. “Spy” opens on Friday, June 5th.

Spy” is a perfect tonic to today’s super serious movies depicting undercover chicanery. McCarthy portrays Susan, a ex-teacher-turned CIA desk jockey, who often is paired with superspy Bradley Fine (Jude Law). When Fine is disposed of, it is up to Susan to complete his international mission, under the disguises of cat lady and unmarried tourist. Like Feig has done in his previous films, “Spy” loves the juxtaposition of having the unlikely Melissa McCarthy as the world’s greatest operative.

Paul Feig interview: Spy, Statham, Spider-Man, the future

1 June 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paul Feig chats to us about Spy, working with female comedy stars, and the genius of Jason Statham...

Paul Feig will always, always, always have a special place in our heart for creating the immortal TV series Freaks & Geeks. Now, however, he's given Jason Statham his straight comedy debut in Spy, which arrives in cinemas this coming Friday.

Ahead of the film's release, he spared us some time for a chat. It didn't take long for Statham's name to crop up either...

I was watching Tom Hanks' That Thing You Do the other day, oddly enough. It's you in that, isn't it?

[Laughs] Yes! The DJ!

I finally watched the extended cut. Have you seen that version?

No, no!

I've always liked the movie. And Tom Hanks, of course, directed the film, having come from an acting background like yourself. What kind of tips do you pick up from someone like him? »

Shirt On, Or Shirt Off? Thn’s Top Jason Statham Screen Moments

29 May 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Say whatever you want about Jason Statham, but at the end of the day, you know exactly what you are going to get in Stath flick. Action, arse kicking, a couple of lovely dolly birds, his short right off and some kick-ass one liners. To celebrate the release of his new film Spy, which arrives in cinemas on Friday 5th June, we thought we’d count down our favourite Stath moments that have been captured on film over the years since his debut in 1998’s Lock Stock & Two Smokin’ Barrels. We love him. We all love him.

“Protection from what? Ze Germans?” Snatch (2000)

Stath plays… Turkish

Shirt On, or Shirt Off? – Shirt On

Possibly the film that secured Stath as a Hollywood leading man. His turn as Turkish is perhaps my favourite role that Statham has portrayed on screen. The film is full of one liners and fun interactions, particularly »

Jason Statham interview: Spy, Crank 3, Viva La Madness

28 May 2015 6:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The mighty Statham comes home to Den Of Geek, to chat Spy, Crank 3, Fast & Furious 8 and more...

This site's devotion to the mighty Statham has been ongoing for many years, yet for the man himself, 2015 is proving a vintage twelve months. Fast & Furious 7, his last film, is currently sitting as the fourth biggest of all time, and his next, Spy, is already picking up box office gold around the world.

Here, we spent some time with The Statham, where we talked comedy, Crank, and Crank 3...

Go back through your films, and there's no shortage of comedy in them. The Crank films in particular. Yet Spy sees you in your first outright comedy role. There's nothing ironic about it, either: a straight character, with loads of funny moments. How was it pitched to you, and why pick this one? You must have been offered comedy before.

Yeah, as you know, »

Exclusive: Jason Statham on Crank 3 and Fast & Furious 8

27 May 2015 11:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Statham sounds like he's on board for the next Fast & Furious film. Plus, plans are ongoing to get Crank 3 made...

So, yesterday, we might just have been in the same room as the mighty Statham himself, and had the chance to question him about one or two of his upcoming projects. He was in town to talk about Paul Feig's incoming comedy Spy, and we'll have the full interview for you next week. But here's what he told us about two upcoming sequels, Crank 3 and Fast & Furious 8.

There's still not much in the way of obvious progress on Crank 3 though, sadly. However, The Statham told us that "Crank 3 is something I've always wanted to do". Promisingly, he added that "The directors want to do it, we're trying to figure things out".

Far more definite is his involvement in Fast & Furious 8. His future filming schedule is set »

Simon Pegg interview: Man Up, Tintin 2, rom coms, directing

27 May 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Pegg chats to us about rom coms, Man Up, writing, Tintin 2, visiting Andy Serkis on The Jungle Book set, directing, and more...

Before he heads off to make the next Star Trek film, Simon Pegg is back in UK cinemas this weekend for the really rather good romantic comedy, Man Up. He co-stars with Lake Bell in the movie, and ahead of its release, he spared us some time to chat about the film, and what he's up to next...

It's an interesting sign of the times that BBC Films, which started out making movies that couldn't be made really, back with Truly Madly Deeply....

Another South Bank movie!

True. Back then, BBC Films was making niche films that were struggling to get made anywhere else. And here, with Man Up, a rom com seems to have become one of those niche films.

Absolutely, yeah. You make a very good point. »
