Liam Hemsworth reportedly offered role in Independence Day 2

16 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wrap is reporting this evening that multiple sources close to the long-awaited sequel to Independence Day, entitled ID Forever, have suggested that The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth has been offered a role in the film.

Roland Emmerich returns to direct the sequel, which has had few drafts of the script written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Carter Blanchard (Glimmer), and will be produced by Emmerich regulars Dean Devlin and Harald Kloser.

Will Smith turned down the chance to reprise his role as Captain Steven Hiller, but Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are set to reprise their roles from the original, which grossed $810 million worldwide back in 1996. The Fantastic Four star Michael B. Jordan has also been rumoured to be involved, but there’s been no official word on his casting.

Edgar Wright Revising Script For Oliver Twist Sequel Dodge And Twist; Eddie Redmayne And Andrew Garfield Rumored To Star

26 January 2015 2:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The folks over at Film Divider (via Coming Soon) have revealed the specifics of what British filmmaker Edgar Wright has been up to since he bowed out of Marvel’s Ant-Man last year. In a surprising – and utterly exciting – turn of events, it transpires that Wright has recently submitted a script revision for Sony’s Dodge And Twist. If the name hasn’t rung a bell, then perhaps you weren’t paying attention during English.

The project originated back in 2013 when the studio jumped on The Odd Life Of Timothy Green scribe Ahmet Zappa’s original spinoff idea. Described as a steampunk sequel to Charles Dickens’ classic work of literature, Oliver Twist, Zappa’s take would pick up 20 years after the events of that novel. Two decades on, Oliver is now a police officer who is still at loggerheads with the Artful Dodger, who now attempts to steal the crown jewels. »

Sundance: ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Actor Michael Shannon Airs His Beef With Video on Demand (Video)

24 January 2015 5:54 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The VOD business model disincentivizes theaters and hurts filmmakers, the ’99 Homes’ star tells TheWrap Editor-in-Chief Sharon Waxman

Same-day video-on-demand releases undermine theatrical sales, actor Michael Shannon told TheWrap Editor-in-Chief Sharon Waxman on Saturday during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

“Then none of the theaters want to pick the movie up, because they’re like, ‘Why are we going to show your movie if you’re just going to let everybody watch it at home?'” Shannon said, citing a film he presented at the festival in 2014 as an example.

Sundance: ’99 Homes’ Director Calls Hollywood’s Lack of Diversity ‘Horrific’ (Video)

24 January 2015 4:30 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The film industry could also take a lesson from Silicon Valley, writer-director Ramin Bahrani tells TheWrap

Hollywood’s lack of diversity is an open secret, “99 Homes” writer-director Ramin Bahrani said on Saturday during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

“Listen, everyone knows: There’s a horrific lack of diversity in Hollywood,” Bahrani told TheWrap Editor-in-Chief Sharon Waxman while discussing the Oscar nominations–revitalized hot-button issue. “There should be a lot more female writers, female directors.”

Bahrani and the film’s star Michael Shannon (“Man of Steel”) stopped by TheWrap‘s Sundance studio on Saturday to discuss the film, »

DrDoom's Pitch for The Amazing Spider-man 3

23 January 2015 5:26 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

"Listen to me, son. You're a lot like your father. You really are, Peter, and that's a good thing. But your father lived by a philosophy, a principle really. He believed that if you could do good things for other people, you had a moral obligation to do those things. That's what's at stake here. Not choice. Responsibility." - Ben Parker I want to preface this article by making an appeal for my sanity. My opinion on Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man series has not changed. They're bad movies, no doubt, and I still cannot stand them. However,  the current state of flux for the franchise due to the extremely negative response to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has left fans exhausted, with many having become jaded by the constant rumours and hoping for official announcements soon. While of course I want Marvel Studios to take the Spider-Man film rights back from Sony, »

The Superhero Spin-Off: Will a Black Widow solo movie ever be made?

19 January 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pim Razenberg on whether a Black Widow movie will ever be made…

Back in October the announcement of Marvel Studios’ Phase Three movie slate surprised everyone with the absence of a movie centred on Scarlett Johansson’s superspy Natasha Romanov, a.k.a. Black Widow. Long rumoured since the introduction of Black Widow in Iron Man 2, many fans expected the movie to be announced as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s third slate of films. But was it really that big a surprise that it didn’t happen?

Like Hawkeye, Black Widow was passed over for a spin-off movie in Phase Three, seemingly ruling out the possibility for a solo outing for the foreseeable future. Yet looking at Phase One and Phase Two, the movie’s exclusion was not all that strange. This year the Marvel Cinematic Universe will see the release of its eleventh instalment, Avengers: Age of Ultron, »

10 Actors Who Should Play Spider-Man In Avengers: Infinity War

18 January 2015 9:50 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel/Sony

It has become painfully obvious that Sony has absolutely no idea what to do with the Spider-Man franchise, regarded as their commercial crown jewel. Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel had their moments, but greatly suffered under pressure from heavy-handed studio interference. Since then, Sony has announced spinoffs for The Sinister Six, Venom and an unnamed female character, with The Amazing Spider-Man 3 not due until 2018, if it even happens at all.

One of the major revelations that came from the Sony hack was that the studio had been in discussions with Marvel about having the character appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, beginning with Captain America: Civil War, or alternatively having Marvel produce a new Spider-Man movie with Sony retaining creative control. Of course, the franchise is such a mess that another reboot was also discussed, with the studio wanting Sam Raimi involved in some capacity. »

Felicity Jones says there are “no plans” for her to play Black Cat

18 January 2015 9:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prior to the release of last year’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it looked like Sony had set out its stall for the future of the Spidey franchise, with the Marc Webb-directed sequel paving the way for The Sinister Six, Venom, a female-led spin-off, and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4.

One of the many plot threads in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 pointed towards the introduction of the Black Cat, with Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) portraying the character of Felicia Hardy. Many assumed this would eventually lead to Jones donning the catsuit in a one of those future movies, but it seems that may not be the case after all…

“Well, [Black Cat] is such a great character in the comics,” Jones tells Clevver Movies when asked about a potential return as Felicia in the Spider-Man movie universe. “I mean, if that happened, that would be lovely. »

Is '28 Months Later' On The Horizon?

14 January 2015 11:31 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

When 28 Days Later came out in 2003, it sort of revitalized the zombie horror genre. Directed with indie edge and verve by Danny Boyle, and presenting its zombies as raging, running maniacs, it changed the way mainstream filmgoers thought of the genre. Up until then, the usual representation of the creatures was the George Romero kind- the slow, lurching, grunting zombies. The film was well-received, and turned an $8 million budget into a worldwide gross of $82 million. When its sequel, 28 Weeks Later, came out in 2007 and was also a moderate hit, the natural assumption that we'd be getting a sequel. But those talks eventually stalled out.

Now Alex Garland, who wrote the first and produced the second, says there have been serious talks about producing 28 Months Later. Better yet, it sounds like Boyle may return to the director's chair for it, after serving as a producer on Weeks and letting Juan Carlos Fresnadillo handle the directing duties. »

Who's Seen 'Fantastic Four'? What Did They Think?

14 January 2015 10:57 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Looks like being a Made Man at Fox has its perks. Matthew Vaughn, who helped get the studio's X-Men franchise back on track after X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine seemingly took everything off the rails, has seen Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot.

"I've seen the movie. It's good," he tells Flickering Myth. The man knows his comic book adaptations since, aside from X-Men: First Class, he also directed Kick-Ass and is now out promoting Kingsmen: The Secret Service- which are both comic properties. He sounds particularly high on Trank (Chronicle). "I thought Chronicle was a fantastic movie and [Josh] Trank has gone off and done his version of Fantastic Four. If you like Chronicle, then you’ll like this," he says.

Matthew Vaughn

"We’re all backing Josh Trank’s vision. And hopefully the world will like Josh Trank’s vision," he concludes.

Fox certainly has high hopes for the reboot, »
