As it's bubbled through development, psychological thriller Villain has seen more than one director come and go. Now the film has apparently locked in 28 Weeks Later’s Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to call the shots and Shia Labeouf is set to star.Written by Josh Zetumer (who worked on the script for the RoboCop reboot), Villain follows two brothers (Labeouf will be one; the other is still to be cast) who venture into the unforgiving wilds of Alaska to confront their dark past. Estranged for a long time, they hope the trip will help them bond once more, but clearly they get more than they bargained for. If only they’d watched Sean Penn’s Into The Wild before heading out…David Slade was on board to direct last year, but has since dropped out thanks to his busy schedule.Labeouf will next be seen in Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep, »

Any discussion about David Gordon Green eventually boils down to the same question: which director is he, really? The one who made sleepy indies like George Washington and All the Real Girls? Or the guy who made crass comedies like Pineapple Express, Your Highness, and the critically savaged The Sitter?
Prince Avalanche, his latest film, shows us that maybe he can be both at the same time. Set on a patch of backwoods Texas roads recently destroyed by a forest fire, Prince Avalanche follows Alvin (Paul Rudd) and Lance (Emile Hirsch), two road workers tasked with painting those yellow lines back on the road for the summer. Lance is the younger son on Alvin’s current girlfriend, and while Alvin enjoys the solitude and meditative space allowed by nature, Lance in an animal in a cage, longing to get back to the city where he can »

Usually when someone is described as “polarizing” it means that sensible people think they’re awful and foolish saps think they’re the greatest. Other times, it can be a matter of acquired taste, someone who seems weird and unlikeable at first and then over time, as you begin to understand what they’re about, becomes more interesting and cool. In other cases, people people’s impressions can be forever tinged by what their first exposure to someone is, and they refuse to change their minds, instead steadfastly clinging to their original conclusion because thinking differently is too much work.
I say all this because I think a sizeable contingent of the public has gotten Kristen Stewart entirely wrong. The first moment she seized most people’s attention was as Bella in Twilight, which developed a specific reputation for her as a person and as an actor, and she has »

Watching death-row inmate Daniel Holden (Aden Young) be prepped for release after serving 18 years for raping and murdering a girl is like watching a corpse be readied for a funeral. Pale and devoid of emotion, he’s fancied up in a suit and tie, a freshly-wiped-clean blank slate presented to the public.”I’m not sure what to make of this drastic change of course in my life,” he tells the press assembled outside the prison, with the cadence of someone who suddenly has all the time in the world. “I will seriously need to reconsider my worldview.”

Bill Pohlad‘s Love & Mercy is looking to start filming this summer, and it looks like they’ve got the biggest pieces of the puzzle all set. According to The Wrap, John Cusack is in talks to join the production, playing Beach Boy Brian Wilson in his mid-life years while Paul Dano plays the younger version of the iconic musician. With a script from Oren Moverman (The Messenger), the movie seeks to chronicle Wilson’s life from his 1960s success, through his public breakdown to his modern reemergence. And, really, he makes for a fascinating subject with a hell of a soundtrack on his hip, but the names behind Love & Mercy build up a lot of excitement. Pohlad was a producer on Into the Wild, The Tree of Life and The Runaways; Moverman has shown incredible emotional nuance in his scripts; Atticus Ross (The Social Network) is scoring the film; John Wells is also producing; and Wilson »

Sean Penn is a serious man. Every now and again we’ll get a glimpse of how serious he can be even in the midst of comedic settings, like that year at the Oscars when he condescendingly mansplained to host Chris Rock who Jude Law is. His seriousness can make him hard to be publicly at times. But it’s also likely the primary contributing factor to just how devastatingly good he is at acting.
He was first introduced to a large audience in the 1982 comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High as the iconic character Spicoli, but since then he has evolved into an actor who can play a variety of characters ranging from stoned surfer to hardened death row inmate. He’s also shown a propensity for picking interesting projects to be a part of, a sign of an actor who’s as sharp as he is talented. His »

Easter is a special occasion. Families gather. Big meals are prepared. Children frantically hunt for Easter eggs. But if you’re The Vampire Diaries’ quick-tempered Klaus, celebrating the holiday may involve other gruesome traditions.
“Probably boiling bunnies,” offers actor Joseph Morgan with maniacal glee over the phone.
Klaus might bask in snapping necks and drowning parents, but in the last three seasons, the bloodsucking fiend has developed into one of The Vampire Diaries’ most complex and multifaceted characters. On Good Friday, Morgan spoke to me about Klaus’ love, flaws and The Originals backdoor pilot.
Klaus and Caroline (Candice Accola) are now officially “friends.” At this point, where are his head and heart when it comes to her?
Klaus is still very much enamored with her. Look, he felt he was dying and called Caroline. Not his sister. Not his brother. That says a lot about where he is in terms of his feelings towards her. »

Chicago – One of most important counterculture novels in American literature history is “On the Road,” by Jack Kerouac. First published in 1957, the film rights were purchased at the time, but it took over fifty more years to get it onto the screen. Director Walter Salles (“The Motorcycle Diaries”) took on the adaptation.
The history of adapting the book to film is as much of a journey as the characters take in the story. After late 1950s Hollywood couldn’t interpret the radical morality in the book (Marlon Brando was attached to play the lead role at one point), and the rights were reacquired by Francis Ford Coppola in the late 1970s. Problems with several screenplay versions occurred, and it wasn’t until the mid-2000s that the team that produced “The Motorcycle Diaries” – screenwriter Jose Rivera and director Walter Salles – took their own journey with the classic novel, and the »

This week, on The Vampire Diaries: Elena has fun, Hayley plays art critic, and Damon finds a friend
The big question left after the intense, dramatic conclusion of “Stand by Me” was what a Turned Off Elena would be like. Would she still feel like Elena at all? Would she be a Katherine clone? And perhaps most importantly, would the audience still relate to a main character who has no humanity? “Bring it On” addresses these questions and handles some of them well, but it still remains to be seen whether the writers and performers can make us care about this new, devious Elena.
Elena flipping the switch last episode was incredibly powerful and effective, but as with many television gamechangers, »

In his column ‘Rabble Rousing’, Gautam Shiknis Aatreya dwells upon why there are so few biopics in Indian cinema and what prevents filmmakers from attacking the Holy cows?
Contrary to gastronomic lore, you don’t need a strong digestive tract to bite into beef. It takes gonads, especially if it’s a succulent sirloin off Bovinus Divinus. The one that hosts an incredibly large number of Gods in her belly. Is it little wonder then, in a land where gorging on a juicy tenderloin is blasphemous, our filmmakers have shown no notable appetite for construction? To make riveting, notable biopics on Indians who deserve to be immortalized on Celluloid – or make a Shashlik off these Holy Cows?
I have marveled at the stories of Howard Hughes, Abe Lincoln, Sienna and a host of other non-Indians – when the makers of those films had the creative freedom and judicial protection to bring »
