Randall Miller and Jody Savin, the team behind 2007’s Bottle Shock, are developing an untitled project about the punk scene in New York’s famed Cbgb nightclub. Founded by Hilly Kristal in 1973, the club was originally intended to feature its namesake musical styles, but became a forum for American punk and New Wave bands like Ramones, Misfits, Television, the Patti Smith Group, Mink DeVille, The Dead Boys, The Dictators, The Fleshtones, The Voidoids, The Cramps, Blondie, The Shirts, and Talking Heads.

Directed by: Tony Scott
Running Time: 1 hr 38 mins
Release Date: November 12, 2010
Plot: Inspired by true events, a Pennsylvania train engine becomes a runaway. And now it’s up to an old train engineer (Washington) and his trainee (Pine) to stop it or else!
Who’S It For? The action is sometimes intense, and certain people will be content staring at Washington and Pine.
Denzel Washington as Frank Barnes: Washington falls in to this character pretty easily. There’s nothing new here for him. His hardcore fan base won’t see anything wrong with that. Washington is 55 years old now and it seems he will always have a place as the crafty veteran. »

With director Tony Scott’s new action thriller Unstoppable getting released this weekend, I recently sat down with Chris Pine to talk about his involvement in the movie. Of course we didn’t just talk about how intimidating it was to work alongside Denzel Washington, as we also covered things like what did he buy himself since he just turned 30, what was it like to work for Tony Scott and his fast moving camera, did he have friends that wanted to visit him on set, and what’s up with the Star Trek sequel and other possible future projects. Hit the jump to check out what Pine had to say and make sure to see Unstoppable this weekend. It’s a fun ride.
Finally, you can watch some clips from Unstoppable here.

With Summer Coda heading the new wave of Australian feature dramas, it looks like we are finally out of the dark, gloomy territory that has characterized local dramas this past decade.
Billed as a romantic drama set in the orchards of the Australian countryside, directed by upbeat young writer/director Richard Gray with a brilliant local cast, Summer Coda is shaping up to be another great entry in the current Aussie film resurgence.
Richard sent us the poster for the film's Australian release, currently set for October 21.
Here is the lowdown...
In the vein of Bertolucci's Stealing Beauty, Richard Gray's Summer Coda is an Australian film with a decidedly unique setting -- the stunning orange groves of sun-baked Mildura against the majestic backdrop of the Murray River. Rachael Taylor (Transformers, Bottle Shock, Cedar Boys) and Alex Dimitriades (Head On, Three Blind Mice) star in the romantic drama, supported by »
HollywoodNews.com: Shortly after blabbing that she slept with Mr. Gwen Stefani aka Gavin Rossdale, Courtney Love is co-producing a Kort Cobain biopic and “Iron Man 2” babe Scarlett Johansson would rush at the chance to play the devilish blonde.
Johansson who is an avid Hole aficionado would love get all method over the role.
She recently exclaimed to MTV News, “I know that there is a script, that’s as much as I know about it. I’m a big fan of Courtney’s and I think she’s very, very talented. But I don’t know anything about the project.”
It would be a challenge, definitely would be a challenge. I think the idea is interesting and intriguing, but I would have to really wrap my head around it.”
Musician Maynard James Keenan is out to transform Arizona into a wine Mecca in this hilarious new documentary
Musician Maynard James Keenan is a notoriously elusive and very private guy. He's also a very hard interview. And he hates being on camera. Which begs the question, "Why would he want to make a documentary about himself?" Directors Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke provide that answer with their hilarious and heartfelt plunge into the Tool frontman's personal life Blood Into Wine. For Keenan, it's all about the art of fermentation. This explorative documentary traces Maynard as he leaves Los Angeles for a small ghost town in Arizona, where he plans to transform the world of wine into something new, unique, and riotously delicious.
