Tom Cruise And Ed Zwick Reteam For 'Jack Reacher' Sequel

19 May 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The last we heard anything about sequel to the modestly performing "Jack Reacher" was that Paramount had put the movie on the "fast track." That was in 2013. But it seems engines are revving for the vigilante drifter to get back on the big screen, and the project now has a director. Deadline reports that the movie will mark the reunion between "The Last Samurai" director Ed Zwick and that film's star, Tom Cruise. It's interesting to note that Christopher McQuarrie—who wrote and adapted the first film, and has been Cruise's go-to writer for the past little while (also penning "Valkyrie" and "Edge Of Tomorrow") — doesn't appear to be involved. Could those rumors of rewrites and possible problems about the ending of "Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation" have had some merit? The filmmaker denied it but it does make one wonder. At any rate, Richard Wenk ("The Equalizer") penned the the first draft of the. »

13 British comedy stars lured to Hollywood in the 1990s

20 April 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hollywood went hunting for lots of British comedy talent in the 1990s - and lured the likes of Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson...

For some reason, Hollywood fell in love with British actors again in the 1990s. Sparked by Alan Rickman's turn as Hans Gruber in Die Hard at the back end of the 1980s, many movie villains were either Brits, or in the case of Cliffhanger, John Lithgow taking on the mannerisms of a British antagonist.

Yet in particular, Hollywood went recruiting British comedy talent, with faces then mainly - but not exclusively - known for their small screen work getting roles of various sizes in Hollywood productions. Here are some who racked up the air miles - starting with the man who arguably became one of the most successful...

Laurie is a man of many talents, who ultimately cracked America with »

Alex Garland of 'Ex Machina' follows others who took a writing-to-directing leap

11 April 2015 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »

Cruise Performs Laugh-Out-Loud Stunts in MI5 Trailer (with Bonus Teaser)

24 March 2015 5:55 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

Watch: First Teaser Trailer For 'Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation' With Tom Cruise Arrives, If You Choose To Accept It

22 March 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If part of the spy game to maintain an element of surprise, then Paramount proved to be pretty great agents when they announced last month they were moving up "Mission: Impossible 5," now titled, "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation," from Christmas Day to July. It's certainly very rare for major blockbusters to be moved ahead, even more so by five months, but the studio is clearly a) confident, and b) wants to get the fuck out of the way of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which will dominate cinemas everywhere when it opens on December 18th. Ahead of the full trailer tomorrow, the first footage has landed for the flick in the form of a minute-long teaser. Tom Cruise once again reunites with Christopher McQuarrie (writer/director of "Jack Reacher," writer of "Edge Of Tomorrow" and "Valkyrie") for this spy adventure, which finds Ethan Hunt and company battling an organization called The Syndicate, »

Mission: Impossible 5 trailer and title "very soon"

8 March 2015 11:14 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director Christopher McQuarrie on Mission: Impossible 5,

Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie is in the throes of getting Mission: Impossible 5, starring Tom Cruise, ready for release at the end of July. But he's taken a bit of time out of his schedule for a question and answer session on Twitter about the movie.

In it, he confirmed that the teaser trailer and name of the movie are due "very soon". We'll also get some idea of the plot for the new film very shortly as well.

In terms of casting, both Paula Patton and Maggie Q were asked to join the cast, but both were unavailable this time. Still, Simon Pegg's Benji sounds like he has an extended role in this one too, with McQuarrie promising that "Benji gets his hands plenty dirty". He also added that we can expect more time with Ving Rhames in the new movie »

For Your Eyes Only: Watch This 3-Minute Supercut Of Spy Movies

10 February 2015 8:26 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After dozens of advanced screenings nationwide over the past month, Matthew Vaughn’s spy comedy “Kingsman: The Secret Service” is finally hitting Us theaters this weekend (read our A- review here) and a new espionage-themed supercut has arrived online to get you in the sneaky mood. Titled “For Your Eyes Only” and edited by Cineplex Movies, the three-minute supercut focuses mostly on modern spy movies, which means less “The Spy Who Came In From The Cold” and more “Salt.” Some of the movies that make appearances include both the Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner “Bourne” flicks, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” the “Mission: Impossible” series, every iteration of James Bond (minus George Lazenby, or at least he wasn’t easily spotted), “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “The American” and, perplexingly, the Nazi-Tom Cruise-with-an-eyepatch-starring “Valkyrie,” which in our opinion is far closer to a war thriller than a spy one, covert operations. »
