Robert Rodriguez Denies Playing Mind Games With Rose McGowan, Lists the Inaccuracies in Her ‘Planet Terror’ Story
Rose McGowan is back in the headlines this week thanks to a Vanity Fair interview that teases one of the chapters from her upcoming memoir, “Brave.” In the chapter, the actress writes about the alleged “mind games” Robert Rodriguez played on her during the making of “Planet Terror.” McGowan had told the director about being raped by Harvey Weinstein at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival, and she writes that he used that knowledge against her by filming a scene in which she is attacked by a man and selling the film to the Weinstein-owned Dimension Films.

‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Awakens in First Trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s Sci-Fi Tentpole

Although he developed Alita: Battle Angel for many years, James Cameron seems to be taking up permanent residence in Pandora for the next many years. Rather than helming the manga adaptation himself, he handed it off to Sin City and Machete director Robert Rodriguez with a reported massive budget of upwards of $200 million.

Ahead of a release next summer, the first trailer has now landed for the big-screen version of Yukito Kishiro’s manga. Starring Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Keean Johnson, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Michelle Rodriguez, Jackie Earle Haley, and Jennifer Connelly, check out the preview for the sci-fi assassin thriller below.

Visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) create a groundbreaking new heroine in Alita: Battle Angel, an action-packed story of hope, love and empowerment.

Animal Factory, 2000.

Directed by Steve Buscemi.

Starring Willem Dafoe, Edward Furlong, Danny Trejo, Mickey Rourke, Tom Arnold, Mark Boone Junior, Edward Bunker, John Heard, and Steve Buscemi.

Synopsis:

A privileged young man is sent to prison for drug dealing and falls under the wing of a lifer who takes a shine to him.

Sometimes the planets are in alignment, the right cards are drawn from the deck and there is a film that gets made with what seems to be the perfect collaboration of cast and crew that you know is going to produce something worthy of your time, and in 2000 Steve Buscemi (Reservoir Dogs/Con Air) directed Animal Factory, his second full-length feature. But what makes Animal Factory a little different from a lot of other prison dramas is that it was written by Edward Bunker, an ex-con-turned-actor (he played Mr. Blue in Reservoir Dogs and also pops up

Animal Factory starring Willem Dafoe will be available on Blu-ray November 28th From Arrow Video

Troubled youth Ron Decker (Edward Furlong, American History X) is sentenced to a ten-year stint in the notorious San Quentin State Prison for a drug-dealing conviction. Inexperienced in the ways of prison life, he’s taken under the wing of Earl Copen (Willem Dafoe, To Live and Die in La), an experienced con with the entire prison in the palm of his hand – inmates and guards alike. But as Ron grows increasingly cocky in his privileged role as Earl’s confidant, is he in danger of biting off more than he can chew with some of the jail’s more volatile inhabitants?

Based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name by Eddie Bunker (Reservoir Dogs), Animal Factory was Steve Buscemi (Lonesome Jim, Interview)’s second stint in the director’s chair and sees him marshaling a formidable ensemble cast,

Danny Trejo Shows Off His Killer Comedic Chops on ‘The Flash’ -- But He’s Still Out for Blood!

Danny Trejo Shows Off His Killer Comedic Chops on ‘The Flash’ -- But He’s Still Out for Blood!
Danny Trejo is one of Hollywood’s most famous bad guys, but he’s showing off his softer side -- er, sort of -- on this week’s episode of The Flash!

In Tuesday’s all-new ep, titled “Elongated Journey Into Night,” Trejo stars as Breacher, one of the “most feared and dangerous bounty hunters in the multiverse.” Oh yeah, and he’s also Gypsy’s dad.

Breacher comes calling on Earth-1 at a particularly inopportune time for Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) -- and immediately threatens to hunt down and kill his daughter’s boyfriend. But it turns out, the process of getting Trejo to agree to the cameo was much less painful.

“Once the image of it being Danny came into our heads, we sort of couldn’t imagine anybody else doing it,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told reporters earlier this week. “I think a lot of times, you don’t ask because

Robert Rodriguez Says Casting Rose McGowan in ‘Grindhouse’ Was an F-U to Harvey Weinstein (Exclusive)

Robert Rodriguez Says Casting Rose McGowan in ‘Grindhouse’ Was an F-U to Harvey Weinstein (Exclusive)
Robert Rodriguez says he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assault of Rose McGowan and accuses the mogul of burying the release of “Grindhouse” out of spite. Rodriguez and McGowan were in a relationship from 2006 to 2009, and the director tells Variety in a statement that he was inspired to cast McGowan as a “bad ass” character in the film as a way of getting back at her alleged assailant.

McGowan has accused Weinstein of raping her in 1997 while she was appearing in “Scream,” a horror hit that was released by Miramax, his former company. Dozens of women have accused Weinstein of assault and harassment. His accusers include Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Mira Sorvino, and Cara Delevingne.

Rodriguez worked with Miramax, and later the Weinstein Co. for years, primarily releasing films through Dimension, a genre label run by Harvey’s brother Bob. Films he made for the companies include “From Dusk Til Dawn,” “Spy Kids,” and “The Faculty

Danny Trejo Blasts Actors Who Do Their Own Stunts

Danny Trejo Blasts Actors Who Do Their Own Stunts
Machete star Danny Trejo says that actors should stick to acting and let the stuntmen do their job. Trejo, who doesn't seem like he's scared of anything, really, knows his place on a movie set and it's definitely not doing dangerous stunts that could possibly jeopardize the jobs of many on a project. The news comes after Tom Cruise broke his ankle while performing a risky stunt on the set of Mission Impossible 6, which has halted production 8 to 9 weeks while the actor recovers from jumping between two buildings. That now leaves a giant crew out of a job for at least 2 weeks while Cruise is on the mend.

Trejo recently sat down to talk to Yahoo Movies where the subject of stunts came up. Trejo, who has over 300 acting credits to his name, believes that the actors should stick to acting and stay away from potentially dangerous stunts for bragging rights.
