The film centers on a neuroscientist who tries to replicate his family after they die in a car accident. Reeves produced the film along with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Stephen Hamel. Jeffrey Nachmanoff (“Traitor”) is directing the picture, which also stars Alice Eve (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”) and John Ortiz (“Kong: Skull Island”). Hamel wrote the film’s story and Chad St. John is credited with the screenplay.
The deal was hammered out at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film was screening for buyers, though it is not in competition.
Reeves had a box office dry spell post-“Matrix,” but has rebounded a bit with the “John Wick” films. Allen’s company has moved aggressively into the film space in recent years, unsuccessfully
"Join Keanu Reeves and the team behind Replicas, for an exclusive first look and conversation about the film. Reeves developed and produced the Replicas with his producing partner, Stephen Hamel, and Transformers franchise producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura. The film is written by Chad St. John (London Has Fallen) from a story by Hamel, and directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff (writer of The Day After Tomorrow). Replicas is the story of a scientist (Reeves) who loses his family in a horrific accident,
IndieWire reports that this project originated from a Matt Birman pitch from roughly 10 years ago. The story is set on a remote island where zombie prisoners race cars in a modern-day Coliseum, all for the entertainment of affluent humans. The director describes the project as a hybrid of Road Warrior and Rollerball, set at a Nascar race, and that there is "significant inspiration" from the iconic 1959 classic Ben-Hur.
Five Against a Bullet has been in development for several years, with Bruce Willis attached to star at one point, and Joe Carnahan coming on board to direct in 2014. Carnahan recently exited the project, but remains credited as the screenwriter, although Matt Corman and Chris Ord (Covert Affairs) are currently penning a new draft.
The film will follow five world-weary bodyguards who are hired to protect a Mexican politician running for mayor after his father is murdered by a drug cartel. Previous reports have suggested that the project could potentially spawn a franchise following the team of bodyguards through their various assignments.
The attachment of Nachmanoff — whose credits include Don Cheadle’s “Traitor” and Keanu Reeves’ “Replicas” — comes two months after Chan was attached to the project.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the project though his Di Bonventura Pictures for Sony along with Suretone Pictures, Jordan Schur through Mimran Schur Pictures and Chan through his Sparkle Roll production company.
Joe Carnahan came on to the project in 2014 to direct and re-write Alex Litvak’s script, set in a small Mexican town under attack by the drug cartel. The story centers on five the world-weary bodyguards who are signed on to protect a Mexican politician after his father is murdered by a cartel, ahead of an election.
Matt Corman and Chris Ord (“Covert Affairs”) are writing the latest draft under Nachmanoff’s supervision.

Generally, the first hostage to get shot in a heist movie is considered insignificant; luckily this time the young woman killed by terrorists has a devoted boyfriend who vows to avenge her death. Charles Heller (John Savage) already works for the CIA, so he’s able to use secret information to blackmail his bosses into

The sequel to “John Wick” has been in the works since 2015 and sees several of the actors from the first film return, including Ian McShane (“Deadwood”), John Leguizamo (“Carlito’s Way”) and Lance Reddick (“The Wire”), among others. Stahelski directed the sequel based on a script from Kolstad.
“With such tremendous fan and critical support for ‘John Wick,’ we knew that there was still so much more of this story to tell,” Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions at Lionsgate, said in a statement last year. “[We] promise to
Now it sounds like another Keanu Reeves vehicle has just started production, namely the film Replicas. This isn't the first we'd heard of this. The film was first announced back in October of 2014, but since that time has pretty much disappeared from the public eye. It's unclear why it was stalled for so long, but today, Remstar Studios announced they would be co-financing the flick with Riverstone Pictures (via Coming Soon).
What's more is that principal photography began over a week ago on August 10. The movie is
Replicas stars Reeves as “a daring neuroscientist who, after a car accident kills his family, will stop at nothing to bring them back, even if it means pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force and the physical laws of science.” Eve will play his wife, Mona, who is cloned following the car crash, allowing her memories and mind to live on.
Replicas is being directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Traitor, Homeland) from a script by Chad St. John (xXx: The Return of Xander Cage). It was originally slated to arrive later this year, but as yet there’s no official word on a release date.
From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...
They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.
25. Dumb And Dumber To (2014)
Following the recent Wonder Woman villain details, we have our first couple of images from the set of the Patty Jenkins-directed DC Comics adaptation. These type of pics usually come from outside sources, but this time they were actually posted by a member of the cast: Saïd Taghmaoui (La Haine, Traitor, G.I. Joe : Rise Of Cobra, Three Kings), who added the images to his Instagram page. We had no idea Taghmaoui was even in the movie, but here he is decked out in Wwi garb, alongside Chris Pine as Steve Trevor.
Obviously the snaps confirm that at least part of the movie will be set during World War I, but they also strongly indicate that Steve Trevor will be a fixture of the past only, and won’t be around to fight alongside Diana in the present day. So, unless there’s going

Here’s my original article that ran on Wamg before Captain America: The First Avenger was released in 2011.
The very first appearance of the sentinel of liberty.
Okay fellow movie geeks! Ready for a bit of pop culture history? Before you head out to the multiplex this weekend to see Paramount’s Captain America: The First Avenger, let’s get better acquainted with the story of this star-spangled superhero.
The project puts a new spin on author J.M. Barrie's beloved Peter Pan, with young Peter being whisked away to Neverland for the first time, leading the locals in a rebellion against the nefarious pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). Garrett Hedlund stars as Captain Hook, who starts out as an ally to young Peter Pan, before turning to his nefarious ways. Smee, who was portrayed by Bob Hoskins in Steven Spielberg's 1991 adaptation Hook, is the right-hand man to Hook. The producers still have not cast Peter Pan at this time.
Our report from yesterday revealed that director Joe Wright is setting up a multi-cultural cast, in an effort to challenge the audience's pre-conceived notions of these classic characters. Jason Fuchs wrote the script, with Greg Berlanti, Paul Webster and Sarah Schechter producing.

The show is set to hit in 2014, and TNT has ordered 10 episodes. If you were forced to make a prediction, I don’t see how you’d bet against this one. At least, if you’re looking at the show being good. Being popular is another thing altogether.
With Sean Bean starring, and based on a Robert Littell’s work, you’re already solid out of the gates. Throw in a pretty solid line-up behind the scenes, and an interesting supporting cast (see full details below), and this one should be a hit. I’m
