Vincent D’Onofrio and Dean Norris join Bruce Willis in the Death Wish remake

10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director Eli Roth is filling out the cast of his Death Wish remake, with Deadline reporting that Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil) and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) have signed on to star alongside Bruce Willis, who is portraying Paul Kersey, played by Charles Bronson in the 1974 original. D’Onofrio is set to play Kersey’s brother, while Norris will portray Detective Rains.

Death Wish follows Kersey, a man whose life is torn apart when thugs murder his wife and sexually assaults his daughter. Frustrated by the police’s failure to bring the criminals to justice, Kersey decides to take matters into his own hands and seeks revenge.

Production on Death Wish is set to get underway in September. The film is currently without a release date, but expect it in 2017.

Giancarlo Esposito Turned Down A Marvel TV Show In Hopes Of Getting Into The Marvel Films

11 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last week, I wrote extensively about the downsides of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which spans both TV and film. While I very much appreciate the ambition and idea of the universe, I feel that due to the bifurcated nature of Marvel Studios (the film studio) and Marvel TV (the TV studio), not enough is being done to truly make them all one truly cohesive universe. Yes, the TV universe can refer to the films, but good luck getting Marvel Studios to acknowledge that Daredevil is running around Hell's Kitchen, or that Coulson is still alive.

Well, in addition to Marvel not taking advantage of the world they've created, it sounds like they're getting an unintended consequence from at least one well known actor -- Giancarlo Esposito.

Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito Turned Down A Marvel Role Due To Division Between Film And TV Studios

27 August 2016 6:20 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Breaking Bad and The Jungle Book star Giancarlo Esposito is hoping to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it turns out that he has no interest in doing so if whoever he plays won't be seen on the big screen. In fact, he's actually spoken to Marvel TV about an unknown role, but turned their offer down after learning that his character wouldn't end up making the leap to the movie side of things.  "I know the Marvel world exists on the Disney lot. I love those guys at Marvel," he says. "We’ve been trying to figure out how to collaborate on something. I’m hoping that it is something. They came to me with something for their television department, then I realized if I did that, I’d never be able to have that same character be in that film department. Once you’re in a Marvel character in the television version, »

Will a Soviet Kgb officer or a vigilante computer hacker walk away with Emmy gold?

One thing’s for sure: A win in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category for either The Americans‘ Matthew Rhys or Mr. Robot‘s Rami Malek — both first-time nominees — would not be considered an upset.

In fact, with Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm and The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels out of the running, this particular Emmy race is wide open.

'The Michael Jordan of criminals': how Narcos found a true villain in Pablo Escobar

27 August 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As the gripping Netflix drama returns, we meet the cast in Colombia to discuss drugs, criminality, and seeking out the man behind the myth

Murder. Shootouts. Betrayal. Morals twisting until they snap. We’ve seen it all before: Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire, Peaky Blinders, Sons Of Anarchy. For the past decade or so TV has been inundated with moody crime sagas. When Narcos debuted on Netflix last year, it could easily have been dismissed as just another one. But Narcos always had an ace up its sleeve. There are criminals. And then there is Pablo Escobar.

If fictional, Escobar’s story would seem absurd. At his peak, the Colombian drug lord is said to have been worth in the region of $30bn – around the same as Warren Buffett, adjusted for inflation. He was so rich he offered to pay off Colombia’s national debt. Escobar’s »

Vincent D’Onofrio And Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris Enlist For Death Wish Remake

26 August 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Daredevil and Heisenberg, look away now. Deadline is reporting that the Eli Roth-directed Death Wish has enlisted Vincent D’Onofrio and Breaking Bad‘s Dean Norris.

A remake of the Charles Bronson thriller of the same name – itself an adaptation of Brian Garfield’s novel – D’Onofrio and Dean Norris will now join Bruce Willis in the overhaul, which has set up shop over at MGM and Paramount. Indeed, this two-fold casting coup is a real sign of progress for Death Wish, given the project has spent the past few years languishing on the fringes of development.

During that time, Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (Big Bad Wolves) were in line to helm Paramount’s remake before last-minute script changes forced the directing pair to bow out. Joe Carnahan (The Grey and, soon, Bad Boys For Life) also contributed to the screenplay during its formative years, before Scott Alexander »

Newswire: Vincent D’Onofrio to help Bruce Willis make a wish—a Death Wish

25 August 2016 6:07 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Deadline is reporting that Vincent D’Onofrio and Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris have both signed on to the Death Wish remake. Directed by Eli Roth, the film is expected to star Bruce Willis as a sort of grizzled genie who loves to grant wishes—as long as those wishes are for death.

Okay, so that’s probably just Death Wishful thinking. Instead, the Roth-directed film will probably just be an even-more-violent retread of the old Charles Bronson vigilante splatterfests, except with Willis in the role of Paul Kersey, a mild-mannered architect-turned-architect of death. (We’ll be honest: we’re kind of addicted to ending sentences with death right now.) D’Onofrio will play Willis’ brother, while Norris plays a police detective. Going off his past track record, though, it’ll probably take Norris’ character a while—and some aggressively placed clues—for him to crack the case. But ...

Women at the Emmys: The Behind-the-Scenes Nominees We’re Rooting For

25 August 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Discussing the representation of women in Hollywood is never, you know, a fun topic, especially when it comes to below-the-line departments. In 2016, there are still glaring examples of a lack of progress for women.

While an improvement over years past, here’s just a quick sampling of accomplishments women were not recognized for: narration, music composition, writing in many categories, stunt coordination… There are plenty of categories, as well, where only one or two women were nominated, often with a male partner — such as Writing for a Comedy, where the sole female nominee is Sharon Horgan alongside Rob Delaney for “Catastrophe.”

But rather than dwell on that, let’s acknowledge some of the accomplished nominees who have a chance to be recognized for their achievements this year. Because regardless of gender, they’re awesome.

‘Breaking Bad’ Actor Rj Mitte: We Need More Disabled People Working in TV

25 August 2016 12:31 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Breaking Bad” star Rj Mitte has a message for Hollywood: cast disabled characters with disabled actors.

Mitte stated in an interview with the Irish Examiner on Wednesday that there isn’t enough exposure for disabled actors in the film and TV industry. The American actor, who himself is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, believes that disabled figures in the media should receive as much screen time as able-bodied actors.

“We know lots of progress is being made but the industry must do more to help disabled people work both in front of and behind the camera,” Mitte said in the interview. “During the Paralympics there will be more disabled people than ever before on TV but this shouldn’t be something that just happens every four years.”

Mitte was cast in “Breaking Bad” in 2008 as Walter White, Jr., who also lives with cerebral palsy. Mitte, who will also co-host the 2016 Paralympic Games in September, revealed »

Neil Burger Set To Direct U.S Remake Of The Intouchables

25 August 2016 10:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Weinstein Company has been trying to develop a remake of French language hit film The Intouchables for a number of years, and has cycled through many combinations of stars and directors. The project looks set to go now, however, with final deals apparently in place for lead actors Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart, and director Neil Burger (Divergent).

The adapted script comes from Jon Hartmere (The Electric Company), and reportedly provides a new spin on the original material that was written by French filmmakers Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano. It is not clear how this Hollywood update will depart from the original, but the plot of that 2011 film sees a wealthy man hire a less wealthy man as his caretaker after he is paralysed in a devastating hang-gliding mishap.

While the continued determination of Hollywood to remake any successful film made overseas is somewhat disappointing and tedious, the union »
