Liam Neeson Eyes 'Tell No One' Remake & Channing Tatum Is 'Struck By Genius'

18 September 2014 6:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Moving along in fits and starts for years now, the remake/re-adaptation of "Tell No One" — based on the book by Harlan Coben, and turned into an excellent 2006 thriller by Guillaume Canet — has had some big names check it out. Ben Affleck was attached to direct for a while, and last year "Warrior" and "Pride & Glory" director Gavin O'Connor was linked for the job. But now, the project is being looked at by someone who knows what it's like to have someone taken from them. (Sorry, had to). Liam Neeson is being wined and dined to take the lead role in the movie, which has Chris Terrio ("Argo," "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice") penning the script. The simple yet effective plotline follows a doctor who, after his wife vanishes, is at first suspected of having murdered her, but then begins to receive clues that she may in fact still be alive. »

Liam Neeson Sweet On Harlan Coben’s ‘Tell No One’

17 September 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: As Universal Pictures prepares for Friday’s opening of the Scott Frank-directed adaptation of the Lawrence Block novel A Walk Among The Tombstones, the studio is courting its star Liam Neeson for another thriller novel it is percolating. It’s Tell No One, the thriller by bestselling novelist Harlan Coben. There is a script by Oscar-winning Argo scribe Chris Terrio, but they are going to do some work before Neeson will officially attach. I hear it’s going to happen, even if it is a little ways away.

While Coben is an accomplished deliverer of page-turner thrillers, he has yet to really hit it in Hollywood. His best outing came on the French version of Tell No One, which was turned into a hit by filmmaker Guillaume Canet. The success of that film led to the Universal deal and Terrio’s writing. Gavin O’Connor has circled the film as director. »

Ben Affleck Admits to Counting Cards While Gambling but Slams Jennifer Garner's Disapproval as ''Tabloid S--t''

17 September 2014 3:42 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Want to know the truth about Ben Affleck's gambling habits? Apparently, you just need to ask Ben Affleck.  In a no-holds-barred interview with Details magazine, the 42-year-old actor, along with his Gone Girl director David Fincher, opened up about the highly anticipated flick based on the best-selling book of the same name as well as the web of lies often spun by the media—a central theme in upcoming film to which the Oscar-winning actor can undoubtedly relate. "I'm accustomed to all kinds of absurdity, so I expect that. No matter what," the Argo star tells the publication when asked if he felt weary taking on the role of Nick Dunne—who finds himself at the center of a media circus »

Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank are a western odd couple in new 'Homesman' trailer

15 September 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Becoming a man of "true grit" earned John Wayne his only Oscar back in 1970. Could the same broken heroism push Tommy Lee Jones into the Oscar conversation? Adapted from Glendon Swarthout's novel and directed by the actor-turned-filmmaker, "The Homesman" pairs Jones with two-time Oscar-winner Hilary Swank for a dangerous western mission with a layer of gender politics. Shacked up with three mentally unstable women, Mary Bee Cuddy (Swank) employs George Briggs (Jones), a claim jumper she finds dangling from a tree in a noose, to escort the band of lone ladies from the Nebraska Territories to a new home in Iowa. In 1854, it's a mission only a fool would take. Our first official look at "The Homesman" has the makings of a solid western, gruff dialogue and deadly circumstances turned mesmerizing by "Argo" and "Babel" cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto's lush vistas. Jones and Swank have that Rooster Cogburn/Mattie Ross appeal, »

8 important awards season revelations after Venice, Telluride and Toronto

15 September 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The race for Oscar is akin to a political campaign, and the first three Fall film festivals have made a significant impact on all the major races. Consider that Venice, Telluride and Toronto take place within three weeks of each other and you have a huge indicator of how the season will progress. With that in mind, here are eight major takeaways that are still buzzing in our heads as the Oscar race begins. "The Imitation Game" just got a huge head start. Harvey's had a tough year at the box office. He isn't going to have a tough year with Oscar. "The Imitation Game" was the hit of Telluride and took the People's Choice Award at Toronto (something The Weinstein Company movies seem to have an awful amount of luck with). It's not quite the slam dunk that "The King's Speech" or "The Artist" were because it "appears »

Zack Snyder Debunks Stolen Batmobile Rumor with Hilarious Photo

15 September 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For some reason, there was a rumor that a Batmobile had been stolen from the set of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Bleeding Cool picked up the story from CBS News of all places, but it turned out to be completely false. How do we know? Well, aside from the official confirmations that not even one of the several Batmobiles on set had been stolen, director Zack Snyder decided to continue his Star Wars photo gags (previously seen with a Jedi Superman and Batman on Tatooine) by having another recognizable character from a galaxy far, far away apprehended by police for trying to steal Batman's ride. Here's the photo Zack Snyder posted on Twitter over the weekend: Case closed. pic.twitter.com/fVyENoksFp — ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) September 13, 2014 Check out the most recent official photos of the armed and badass Batmobile right here!

Ben Affleck speaks of his drive and the rage of Batman

15 September 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

When you've gotten to the position that Ben Affleck is in, choosing a role as widely coveted as Batman is a careful career choice. You can risk not being cast for future roles if the film turns out bad, or if the public eye has a hard time seeing you as anything else. On the flip side, choosing a role such as this can also give an adrenaline shot to your career. Given the success of his directed films (Argo, The Town), you could argue that Affleck didn't need it, but it was certainly in »

Ben Affleck talks about playing the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

15 September 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Ben Affleck was announced as playing The Dark Knight in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Internet virtually exploded, with opinions ranging from those who felt that it’s the worst thing to happen to the character since bat nipples, to those who simply said that Affleck was “the bomb in Phantoms.”

In an interview with the Sunday Times here in the UK, Affleck talked about donning the cowl in the hope that it could help him develop some of his smaller independent movies, “I hope it’s true,” the actor said with half a smile. “You’re always thinking about the momentum you’re trying to build in your career. There are dual thought processes – on the one hand, you’re going, ‘What’s interesting to me?’ On the other hand, you’re thinking, ‘How do I give myself the opportunity to do those things? »

"When we had our first, we had only been together a year. We were babies. It happened so fast, I hardly even remember what we were like before the kids got here," Garner, 42, recalls in InStyle's October 2014 issue. "Now we're just starting to go away for a night here and there."

"You go through phases," she continues. "You can't expect to be courted all the time, and I don't want to court him right now.I don't have the energy! But we're definitely in a very mindful place where we're making an effort to be together, do things at the same time, and be loving."

Garner filmed most of this year's movies in 2013, meaning she was able to spend more time at home with the kids while Affleck was on location as the Caped Crusader. "I keep things rolling and foster his connection to the kids. He'll always make time »

What drives your inspiration as a producer? What do you look for in a story? 

Many of the movies that I’ve produced have a common denominator: They’re usually about self-worth and they’re often about men who have drive and talent but are emotionally handicaped and they have to solve or work to »
