"Wanted" and "Kick Ass" comic creator Mark Millar is 20th Century Fox's go to guy for consultation on Marvel projects, and he's also a fairly forthcoming guy about not just his work but comic book film adaptations in general.
In a new interview with IGN UK, Millar has talked about quite a few major comic book films that have either just hit or are on the way. The results are often interesting.
First up "Fantastic Four" and where a sequel to that stands: "I think everything's open to discussion. No decision has been made on anything yet like that. There's chats everyone's going to have on the phone at some point." As for the film itself? He says "it's a shame" how it turned out, though admitted liking certain elements.
He says Marvel Studios has similar problems with some of their films: "'Thor 2' didn't work out especially well; ' »

20th Century Fox Television is developing a remake of the 1980s classic TV show The A-Team, with Furious 7 screenwriter Chris Morgan coming aboard to produce the new series, according to a report from Deadline. The news comes five years after 20th Century Fox released their big-screen adaptation of The A-Team, which starred Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley and Quinton Jackson. This rebooted TV series will have a contemporary setting, with a twist on the team itself.
The original series centered on four highly-trained special forces soldiers, John "Hannibal" Smith (George Peppard), Templeton "Faceman" Peck (Dirk Benedict), H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock (Dwight Schultz) and B.A. (Bad Attitude) Baracus (Mr. T), who escaped from a military prison after being detained for a crime they didn't commit. They fled to Los Angeles and began working as "soldiers of fortune," using their immense skills to help people in need, while trying to clear their name. »
As John C. Reilly says in "Talladega Nights," violent video games and violent cinema go together like cocaine and waffles. Toronto audiences responded with like enthusiasm, awarding the People's Choice Midnight Madness Award to Ilya Naishuller’s "Hardcore," which through the lens of GoPro video cameras, puts us into a virtual reality scenario, literally through the eyes of cyborg protagonist Henry as he battles murderously for freedom. Here's the synopsis: Produced by Timur Bekmambetov (“Night Watch,” “Wanted,” “Unfriended”), “Hardcore” is told entirely from the point of view of a cyborg named Henry. Resurrected with no recollection of his past, Henry (the audience) and his ally, Jimmy (Sharlto Copley, “District 9”) must fight through the streets of Moscow in pursuit of Henry’s kidnapped wife in the world’s first action-adventure film to be shot 100% from the first person perspective. Naishuller also wrote and produced “Hardcore.” Producers are Timur »

A week after premiering at the Toronto Film Festival, "Hardcore" sci-fi action film has now reached a deal to sell the worldwide rights to Stx Entertainment for at least $10 million, which is one of the biggest deals at the festival. "Hardcore" was in the middle of a furious bidding war, with such companies as Paramount Pictures, Universal Pictures and Lionsgate making offers to acquire the film. But Stx beat everyone out. The deal includes a commitment for at least 1,000 screens in its Us release. "Hardcore" stars Sharlto Copley and Haley Bennett, and is directed by Ilya Naishuller, who directed the popular "Bad Motherf*cker" music video." It's produced by Timur Bekmambetov (director of "Wanted"), Inga Smith and Alex A. Ginzburg. »
Bryan Singer has revealed that his next project will be 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. The X-Men director revealed the news himself on Instagram.
Rick Sordelet and Dan Studney have written the script for the planned film, based on the story they created with Singer. 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea was written by Jules Verne in 1970, and tells the story of three guests on board the Nautilus, a submarine whose capabilities match the torment of its captain; Captain Nemo.
He said the following on his Instagram post, which we’ve published below:
It’s my 50th birthday (ouch), and I just put the finishing touches on the script for my next film. A story I’ve wanted to retell since childhood. »

Today we have a restricted trailer for the upcoming "Hardcore" action film, which was shot entirely from the hero's perspective. It stars Sharlto Copley (District 9) and Haley Bennet (The Equalizer), and is produced by Timur Bekmambetov (director of "Wanted") and Alex A. Ginzburg. Check it out below, as well as the poster. Plot: You remember nothing. Mainly because you've just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry and congratulations, you're now a cyborg. 5 minutes later, your wife has been kidnapped and you should probably go get her back. Who's got her? His name's Akan (Danila Kozlovsky), he's just a psychotic megalomaniac with telekinetic powers, and a never-ending army of mercenaries. You're also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, Russia and everyone wants you dead. Everyone, except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy (Copley). He might be on your side. »
Blazing a trail in 1995, Hackers tackled web culture on screen before the internet really took off. The cyber-thriller helped kick-start the career of a major Hollywood A-lister and swiftly became a cult classic thanks to its Hacker Manifesto.
As Hackers celebrates its 20th birthday today (September 15), here's what happened to the six stars who made up the cyber-punk crew.
Hackers handle: Acid Burn
In 1995, Jolie was a fast-rising 20-year-old actress with Cyborg 2 and some big music videos (including Meat Loaf, Lenny Kravitz and The Lemonheads) on her CV. New York Times critic Janet Maslin was non too plussed about Jolie's performance, saying of her character: "Kate stands out. That's because she scowls even more sourly than [her co-stars] and is that rare female hacker who sits intently at her keyboard in a see-through top."
Now, the 40-year-old is an Oscar-winning superstar with humanitarian work spanning more than a decade and »
Now that the film has locked down at least one of its male leads in Scott Eastwood, the team behind Overdrive have turned their attention to a crucial female role. They’ve hired Knock Knock’s Ana de Armas for the part. Having menaced Keanu Reeves in the Eli Roth thriller that arrived in the UK a couple of months ago, de Armas will now be part of the long-gestating vehicular thriller. The script, written by Wanted’s Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, focuses on two American brothers who decide to push their car-thief career into top gear by heading to France. But they end up running afoul of a much more dangerous criminal. How de Armas’ character will fit in has yet to be announced, though we could see her plotting as the criminal king pin if the film decides to go an interesting way. Eastwood will be one of the brothers, »
“It’s like watching someone else play a video game” goes the common criticism of action movies in the CGI-era. We’ve all had that experience—watching a bloated, overlong sequence where weightless enemy after weightless enemy is despatched without ever making you care once. But there’s a way of using video game language to the benefit of a movie (think of “Edge Of Tomorrow” last year, for instance), and the latest film to attempt it is “Hardcore.” Currently screening at Tiff, the film, from newcomer Ilya Naishuller, produced by “Wanted” director Timur Bekmambetov, and starring and executive produced by “District 9” star Sharlto Copley, is selling itself as the first action movie told entirely from first-person perspective, “Call Of Duty” style. Now, you can have a proper look thanks to the film’s first trailer. The promo promises some “District 9”-style inventive low-budget sci-fi action, with a smattering of ultraviolence, »

This first trailer for Ilya Naishuller's insane looking Hardcore makes the bold claim that it's the film of this generation that "will change everything." While that remains to be seen, what we're seeing here is pretty impressive in terms of bringing the notion of a first person movie to life in a potentially exciting way.
Sharlto Copley (District 9, Elysium) stars in the action film presented by Russian Wunderkind Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch) that is having its worldwide premier at the Toronto International Film Festvial.
You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry and congratulations, you’re now a cyborg.

One genre film getting talked about a lot this week at the Toronto International Film Festival is the Canadian sci-fi action film "Hardcore" and the first trailer has arrived.
The big conceit of the film though is that it was shot entirely from a first-person perspective - making it akin to a live-action video game. The film has yet to secure a U.S. release date.
Set in Moscow, the story follows a man who has been resurrected as a cyborg. When his wife (Haley Bennett) gets kidnapped by a psychotic megalomaniac (Danila Kozlovsky) with telekinetic powers and his own personal army, said man has to get her back with the help of a mysterious British fellow (Sharlto Copley).

It looks like The Transporter: Refueled, the latest in the franchise once fronted by Jason Statham, isn.t the only action movie with eyes for the south of France. Hunky actor Scott Eastwood is set to star in the high-octane flick Overdrive, which will also burn rubber all over those exotic, luxurious environs. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eastwood, the 29-year-old son of legendary actor/director Clint Eastwood, will take the lead in Overdrive, which has put together a solid action pedigree. Taken director Pierre Morel is producing the film along with Christopher Tuffin. Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, the duo behind the likes of Wanted, 2007.s 3:10 to Yuma remake, and 2 Fast, 2 Furious, are handling the script part of the program. And at the helm of this particular ship this will be Antonio Negret, who directed the Jim Caviezel-starring Transit, as well as a few recent episodes »
Sitting in the development garage since at least 2011, action project Overdrive has hardly lived up to its name so far, generating a lot of interest without actually gaining any momentum. Producer Pierre Morel and director Antonio Negret are hoping that will change now they have The Longest Ride’s Scott Eastwood on board to star.Assuming everything comes together this time, the film, written by Wanted’s Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, focuses on two American brothers who decide to push their car-thief career into top gear by heading to France. But they end up running afoul of a much more dangerous criminal. In its long road to the screen, the film has attracted several variations of the sibling duo with Alex Pettyfer and Matthew Goode, Karl Urban and Ben Barnes and Jamie Bell and Garrett Hedlund all loosely attached at one time or another, with the film passing through »
Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...

Mad Max: Fury Road is easily one of the best movies of 2015 and a favorite of the JoBlo.com crew. The movie has already been spoofed and parodied online in countless ways, but this new one may be the very best. The one and only Mark Millar, creator of Kick-ass, Wanted, and Kingsman, alerted us to this very special mash-up of Mad Max: Fury Road and the classic screwball comedy It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

A few months ago, Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) suggested that X-Men: Apocalypse would be her last go-round as Mystique. Considering her contract does come to an end following the highly anticipated Bryan Singer-directed film, it wasn't too surprising that the Academy Award-winning actress was ready to move on. However, following a few weeks of shooting and an extremely warm reception for the X-Men cast at San Diego Comic-Con, it would seem as though Lawrence may have had a change of heart, at least to some extent. Speaking with Yahoo! Movies alongside co-stars James McAvoy (Wanted) and Michael Fassbender (Assassin's Creed), Lawrence told Yahoo!: "I told Fox not to not ask me" This led Fassbender to jokingly reply with "Because you want to have the option to turn them down?" and Lawrence responded in kind: "I kind of want to bait them with a text and then when they call me, »
