V/H/S Director David Bruckner Set To Helm Friday The 13th Reboot

15 April 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Like Jason Vorhees rising from the grave to dispatch another group of attractive morons, the Friday the 13th franchise just won't stay down. After Conan The Barbarian director Marcus Nispel brought us a lackluster reboot back in 2009, Paramount and Platinum Dunes are looking to David Bruckner (writer and director of the excellent “Amateur Night” segment of V/H/S) to breath new life into the hockey mask wearing killing machine. There were rumors that this new take would go the found footage route, and Bruckner's hiring would certainly lend credence to that..although The Wrap don't confirm it. Paramount will release the reboot on Friday, March 13, 2015. What do you guys think of this? They have a very good director on board at least..could this actually be worth making? »

Platinum Dunes Will Attempt To Reboot The ‘Friday The 13th’ Horror Series For A Second Time

15 April 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If at first you don’t succeed… There have been twelve films in the “Friday The 13th” franchise thus far. You know what Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes horror shingle did in 2009? They acquired rights to the series (like they have with horror franchises “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” “A Nightmare On Elm Street,” “The Hitcher”) and basically hit reset, rebooting the series with “Friday The 13th” directed by Bay-reboot favorite Marcus Nispel (who helmed the “Conan the Barbarian” reboot for Millennium). What are they doing in 2014? A rebooting “Friday The 13th” yet again because their first attempt only grossed $65 million domestically with a worldwide gross of $91 million. Apparently that figure off a $19 million budget was just not enough profit. And so David Bruckner, who wrote and directed the “Amateur Night” segment of “V/H/S,” is in negotiations to direct, according to The Wrap. And it’s already dated for Friday, »

21 March 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The fourth installment in George Miller's post-apocalyptic Mad Max series has been a long time coming, but we've now got just over a year to wait before Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) steps into Mel Gibson's shoes for the long-awaited Mad Max: Fury Road, and a new image has surfaced online giving us another look at Hardy as Max Rockatansky...

"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."

Mad Max: Fury Road is set for release on May 15th 2015, with a cast that also includes Charlize Theron (Prometheus), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max), Nathan Jones (Conan the Barbarian »

Filmmaker pans Wolf Creek 2

4 March 2014 5:26 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The long-standing etiquette among filmmakers here and internationally is that they don.t usually bad mouth each other.s work.

Writer-director Chris Sun does not subscribe to that convention, as evidenced by his criticism of Greg Mclean.s Wolf Creek 2.

Sun aired his views as he prepares to shoot horror movie Charlie.s Farm, which stars Us actress Tara Reid (Sharknado, the American Pie movies) and Nathan Jones (Mad Max: Fury Road, Conan the Barbarian) on the Gold Coast.

Jones plays Charlie Wilson, a serial killer who preys on four horror-seeking youths who head to the Outback to explore the location where a violent family perished at the hands of an angry mob.

This is Sun.s third film following Daddy.s Girl and Come and Get Me. In a media release promoting Charlie.s Farm he praised the first Wolf Creek as awesome and Mclean as a .bloody Aussie legend. »

Jason Momoa Gets Serious: I Keep My Shirt on for 'Red Road'

27 February 2014 1:56 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Jason Momoa has lead a Dothraki horde on Game of Thrones and played the iconic Conan the Barbarian. Now the actor is poised to unleash what he says is his toughest role yet with Sundance TV's The Red Road, which premieres Thursday. "There's a lot of heavy, heavy drama that I've never played," says Momoa, who acknowledges Game of Thrones was also full of challenges. "Sure, ripping someone's throat out is heavy, but it's in a fantasy world. In fantasy and sci-fi, you can do all sorts of things that aren't real." Video: Tom Sizemore Compares 'Red

Jason Momoa discusses his audition for Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy

26 February 2014 11:17 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before Dave Bautista was cast in the role, there were reports that Jason Momoa had emerged as Marvel's pick to play Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy, only for the Game of Thrones and Conan the Barbarian star to allegedly turn down the studio's offer to join the cosmic superhero ensemble. Well, speaking to Zap2It, Momoa - who has since been heavily rumoured for a part in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman - has confirmed that he did audition, and explained his reasons for passing on the movie:

"I think it's perfectly cast. Dave is perfect for that role, for Drax. It didn't really fit in my time because I've done so many things where I don't say much and I'm colored up and I have my shirt off again. I made a conscious choice to turn down some movies that were »

Momoa On Turning Down Marvel's "Guardians"

26 February 2014 12:03 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Game of Thrones" and "Conan the Barbarian" actor Jason Momoa has revealed that a key reason he didn't get the role of Drax the Destroyer in "Guardians of the Galaxy" was that he back out after auditioning.

Talking about the decision with Zap2It, Momoa revealed he didn't want to be pigeonholed as a brute:

"I think it's perfectly cast. Dave [Bautista] is perfect for that role, for Drax. It didn't really fit in my time because I've done so many things where I don't say much and I'm colored up and I have my shirt off again. I made a conscious choice to turn down some movies that were action-based to direct 'Road to Paloma' so people could see that side.

Jason Momoa Explains Why He Turned Down Drax the Destroyer Role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

25 February 2014 2:30 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" was still in development, it was rumored that Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian) was in talks to play Drax the Destroyer. The role eventually went to Dave Bautista. But now comes word directly from Momoa that not only did he audition for the role, but that he turned it down. "Dave is perfect for that role, for Drax," he explained. "It didn't really fit because I've done so many things where I don't say much and I'm colored up and I have my shirt off again. I made a conscious choice to turn down some movies that were action-based." He continued: "It's not that [Drax is] not a good role, it just wasn't the right thing.

Jason Momoa Confirms Auditioning And Turning Down 'Drax' Role In Guardians Of The Galaxy

25 February 2014 7:45 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Sometime last year, Jason Momoa surfaced as a top contender for the role of Drax the Destroyer in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and while the role ultimately went to Dave Bautista, Momoa had reportedly declined Marvel's offer. This was of course debunked not only by the Conan the Barbarian actor himself, but also director James Gunn. Well, speaking with Zap2it, he admitted to auditioning and even reading alongside Star-Lord actor Chris Pratt. "I think it's perfectly cast," said Jason Momoa while promoting his new drama The Red Road. "Dave is perfect for that role, for Drax. It didn't really fit in my time because I've done so many things where I don't say much and I'm colored up and I have my shirt off again.

Why 'The Red Road' Star Jason Momoa Wants to Work With Terrence Malick

19 February 2014 1:28 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"The Red Road," a new drama coming to SundanceTV (formerly Sundance Channel) on February 27th at 9pm, features Jason Momoa as we haven't seen him before. For one, he gets to wear a shirt, and for another, he's not in the middle of a fantasy or sci-fi landscape. A striking 6'4" tall and of a mixed heritage that includes Hawaiian and Native American ancestry, Momoa made a name for himself playing a series of memorable genre tough guys, including Ronon Dex on "Stargate: Atlantis," the title role in Marcus Nispel's "Conan the Barbarian" remake and the Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo on "Game of Thrones." But "The Red Road" finds Momoa operating in the all too real world of a small New Jersey town divided along lines of race and class.
