Jennifer Aniston Named Hottest Woman Of All Time By Hilarious Magazine

9 December 2011 10:32 AM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

Men’s Health Magazine just named their Top 100 Hottest Women Of All Time (with every entry on its own page in convenient “Year-End Album List That Forces You To Skip Right To #1″ format), and they’ve officially named Jennifer Aniston #1. Their explanation (Bracketed Portion mine): She rarely plays the airhead, and she seldom overplays a role: she’s funny in a quiet, refreshingly human way. And her all-too-human love life off screen inspires sympathy that not even a string of bland romantic comedies can diminish. [Also we had a handshake agreement with her publicist for an interview to accompany this article, and they gave us a giant sack with a dollar sign on it and also obviously we can't interview Marilyn Monroe plus this'll generate controversy] I realize beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I think we can all beholden that this is incorrect. For good measure, Aniston also said that her pick for the Sexiest Woman Of All Time would have been Gloria Steinem, the most selfconcious and calculating answer possible (short of “My Grandmother! Her courage and devotion were the true definition of sexy”). Needless to say, »

Producer Neal Moritz Remaking 'Starship Troopers' For Some Reason

2 December 2011 8:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Neil Moritz, the man behind brainless action movies like the 'Fast & Furious' franchise, "xXx," "Stealth," "S.W.A.T." and lame rom-coms like "The Bounty Hunter" and "Made Of Honor" wouldn't know an original idea if it hit him in the face. But he does know franchises and adaptations, and the man who has also put his powers behind "I Am Legend," "The Green Hornet" and next year's "21 Jump Street" and "Jack The Giant Killer" has found something else that needs "improving." Vulture reports that Moritz has tasked "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class" writers Edward Miller and Zack Stentz to write a new version of Paul Verhoeven's cult classic "Starship Troopers." Not much else is known about the reboot but the big question is: why? While the original film barely broke even at the box office, it became a phenom on DVD, earning a legion of »

Butler Brands Co-star Dating A 'Disaster'

23 November 2011 4:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Gerard Butler is determined not to fall in love with movie co-stars after his previous on-set dalliances ended in "disaster".

The Scottish hunk has been linked to a string of Hollywood beauties, including his The Bounty Hunter co-star Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz.

But Butler has ruled out dating a fellow star during filming ever again, insisting it's too easy to become infatuated with an actress while at work.

He says, "That's a dangerous path. When you're making a film with someone, you get to know them very well indeed and it's too easy to develop a sort of obsession with them that you think at the time might be love. But it isn't.

"Earlier in my career, I had a couple of relationships with co-stars and both times it was a disaster." »

Tarantino’s Django Unchained Lands Female Lead

27 October 2011 2:30 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Tarantino’s Django Unchained Lands Female Lead


Director Quentin Tarantino has a very special mission for actress Kerry Washington, should she choose to accept it. Read on because this movie update will Not self-destruct.

The quirky, cool director of such pop culture phenomenons as Desperado, Pulp fiction, Kill Bill and Inglourious Basterds is developing a brand new project called Django Unchained. Will it be off the chain? Well, it will feature Kerry Washington in a key role. You may remember her from roles in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Fantastic Four, Lakeview Terrace and For Colored Girls. No doubt Mr. Tarantino has his pick of lovely and strong women for this role, so Washington should be on cloud nine. She’ll act as the character called Broomhilda. Gosh, that’s not a very flattering name.

So, who is Broomhilda? Deadline revealed she’s the “long-suffering slave wife of Django” who is acted by Jamie Foxx. »

This Means War Trailer: Reese Witherspoon Gets Caught Up in Spy Games

13 October 2011 12:14 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The action romantic comedy is one of Hollywood's genres du jour, but the film industry has seen some serious misses with movies like Killers and The Bounty Hunter. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like This Means War will be any better. The film stars Chris Pine and Tom Hardy as Bff CIA agents who are at an impasse when they realize they're both dating the same woman (Reese Witherspoon). Rather than dump her, they decide that they'll let her choose which guy she wants to be with, and thus begins the hijinks and date sabotage, with the help of their CIA resources. The trailer's focus is definitely on the action side: there's lots of explosions, gunplay, and the like. In fact, Witherspoon pretty much takes a backseat to Hardy and Pine as they duke it out for her affections. Unfortunately, there aren't many laughs, other than a one-liner from Pine at the very end. »

Katherine Heigl’s “One For the Money” trailer

28 September 2011 12:36 PM, PDT | | See recent news » This one dropped a couple days ago, so pardon the tardiness. Anyway, I know nothing about the Stephanie Plum character or the Janet Evanovich novels that this film is adapted from.

All I can say is that it’s a big clearer why Lionsgate moved this film from its original mid-summer 2011 slot to January 27th, 2011. It’s no secret that I’d be all smiles about a female-centric action franchise. But this looks quite terrible, borrowing the worst parts of The Bounty Hunter and, most crucially, refusing to take its premise remotely seriously. Again, I can’t say if this is faithful to the novels, but why must this female-driven action film be burdened by camp and in fact sell the idea that women cannot be convincing action stars?

Before she became a star on Grey’s Anatomy, Heigl dabbled in action (macing Everett McGill in Under Siege 2: Dark Territory »

She’s baa-ack. Katherine Heigl returns to the big screen in One for the Money, a crime caper comedy based on Janet Evanovich’s popular series of books. The first trailer finds Heigl’s Stephanie Plum just let go from her job at Macy’s lingerie department. She lands a job at her cousin’s bail-bond business where her first assignment puts her on the hunt of her former lover. Wait a minute, isn’t this The Bounty Hunter with the genders flipped around?

One For The Money banks a trailer

26 September 2011 10:38 AM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

 A theatrical trailer has been released online for the romantic comedy One For The Money.  Based on the best-selling novel by Janet Evanovich, at first glance it looks just a little too close to the awful Jennifer Aniston/Gerard Butler film The Bounty Hunter.  We sincerely hope it hits higher than that mismatched romcom, especially as there are 22 stories in Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series and this franchise could run and run.  Katherine Heigl plays the lingerie buyer turned bounty hunter, tracking down her...

‘One for the Money’ Trailer: Katherine Heigl Gets Fired, Becomes a Bounty Hunter

26 September 2011 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I think it's fair to say that Katherine Heigl has an image problem. Films like Killers and Life as We Know It haven't done much to balance the idea of Heigl as ice queen, but maybe adopting a Jersey accent will do the trick. Providing the assist is Heigl's former Grey's Anatomy director Julie Anne Robinson, who sat in the director's chair for this particular effort. So One for the Money is based on the first of more than a dozen novels by Janet Evanovich that follow the travails of amateur bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Heigl plays Plum in what looks like a zippy but vapid film in the same basic vein as Romancing the Stone. (Or, if you're feeling less generous, in the same mode as The Bounty Hunter, with the main gender roles flipped.) Check out the trailer below. I'll say this: that's quite a lively trailer. Not »

First One for the Money Trailer with Katherine Heigl

26 September 2011 9:26 AM, PDT | | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Katherine Heigl movies are essentially all about the same thing: Heigl finding love in the most improbable circumstances. With that in mind, Heigl's fans are sure to love One for the Money, based on the first of a series of novels by popular author Janet Evanovich.

Some might say the world of bounty hunting is filled with danger and violence, but according to the first trailer and poster for One for the Money, the job is actually filled with kooky characters like friendly hookers and harmless, naked old men. It's also apparently the perfect career choice for anyone with sass and moxie. Based on this trailer and last year's The Bounty Hunter, the trade also offers limitless possibilities for finding your true love.

'One for the Money' trailer: Katherine Heigl sports brunette hair, a gun, and a Noo Juh-zee accent

26 September 2011 8:37 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

The trailer for the upcoming flick One for the Money has exactly what you’d expect from a Katherine Heigl action-adventure rom-com: The actress playing a sad, single girl who gets sage advice to either find a job or a husband. This time around, though, she’s brunette, and playing Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, a down on-her-luck New Jersey divorcée who recently lost her job at the Macy’s lingerie department and seems to spend most of her time with her older relatives, including her grandmother played by Debbie Reynolds. Deciding to choose work over love, Stephanie winds up »

Trailer Proves Katherine Heigl's Got 'One For the Money'

26 September 2011 7:40 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

There's nothing a studio loves more than making boatloads of money a solid franchise, and the latest novel-turned-movie promises to be the beginning of just that. Katherine Heigl stars in the upcoming flick "One for the Money," based on the uber popular romantic detective novel series by Janet Evanovich.

In the just-posted trailer, we get a first glimpse of Heigl as the "incredibly average but heroic if necessary" Stephanie Plum, who starts a second career as a bounty hunter (why she picks this line of work is unclear) after she loses her job selling lingerie in New Jersey.

For her first assignment, Plum must track down a public enemy—who also happens to be an old high school flame. That's when things get sticky.

Ok, so we must acknowledge the obvious: this does resemble the tone and plot of the Jennifer Aniston-Gerard Butler vehicle "The Bounty Hunter"… but don't hold that against it. »

One For the Money Trailer: Katherine Heigl Is a Bounty Hunter With an Attitude, Jersey Accent

26 September 2011 5:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Don't think that just because Katherine Heigl is playing a bounty hunter in One For the Money that she's left her romantic comedy clichés behind. Heigl stars as Stephanie Plum, a New Jersey native who loses her job in retail and ends up working for a family member who's a bail bondsman. One of her first assignments is to nab a man, Joe Morelli (played Terra Nova's Jason O'Mara), who has skipped out on his bail bond. Even though Morelli is Stephanie's mark, he just so happens to be her ex. (Sounds an awful lot like The Bounty Hunter, no?) Even though Heigl is treading in familiar territory, at least her character is a bit of a stretch from what we usually see from her - she's a tough-talking Jersey girl prone to whipping her shirt off if need be. From the trailer, the movie is entirely predictable, but »

Katherine Heigl Does Jersey in ‘One for the Money’ Trailer

24 September 2011 8:50 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s no secret that I hate Katherine Heigl. In fact it was less than a year ago that I pleaded with moviegoers to avoid her last insipid effort, the oh-no-we-have-a-kid rom-com Life As We Know It. (Thankfully many of you did.) Still, she’s back again with another zany rom-com featuring a shrill girl who falls for a gruff guy.

In One for the Money, Heigl plays Stephanie Plum, a recent divorcee with no job and no prospects until her cousin gives her a chance at his bail-bonds business. So of course, her first assignment is to track down her tacky ex and bring him to justice. (Am I wrong or wasn’t this the plot of The Bounty Hunter? I may be wrong as I avoided that movie just as I intend to duck this one.) Anyhow, from the trailer you can see Heigl really stretches herself, affecting »

CBS Buys Sony TV Drama Projects From ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Producer Matt Tolmach & ‘Spider-Man’ Director Sam Raimi

20 September 2011 7:18 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: In his first foray into TV, former Columbia Pictures chief-turned-producer Matt Tolmach, who produces the upcoming Spider-Man reboot with Avi Arad, has sold a female-driven drama project to CBS with writer Jessica Goldberg (Refuge). Additionally, CBS has bought a drama project with a female lead from the director of the previous 3 Spider-Man movies, Sam Raimi, which is being written by Sarah Thorp (Hawthorne, The Bounty Hunter). Both projects hail from Sony Pictures TV where both Tolmach and Raimi are based through extensions to their Sony pacts on the feature side. The Matt Tolmach/Jessica Goldberg project is titled Sleepers and centers on a woman who has the gift to save “sleepers,” people who are caught somewhere between life and death. Tolmach, who is executive producing with Goldberg, exited his post as co-president of Columbia Pictures  in October 2010 to launch a film production company and take on producing duties for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man movie. »

Gerard Butler Yells At A Banker & Learns Death Comes At Night In Clips From 'Machine Gun Preacher'

1 September 2011 7:08 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Although it’s been hard to come to terms with, since Zack Snyder got him to strip down to his underpants and (doubtless) demanded he slather himself in goose fat for “300,” for whatever reason Gerard Butler is a movie star. The guy seems to enjoy scampering through sexist rom-coms (“The Bounty Hunter,” “The Ugly Truth”) with all the boundless gaiety of a Renaissance Man and otherwise crops up in hysterically misjudged vigilante pictures (“Law Abiding Citizen”) where he claims he’s going to “kill everyone,” perhaps in some deluded effort to test his "range" (more’s the pity, Gerry, you don’t catch… »

Natalie Portman turns down chance to be ageless in Adaline

30 August 2011 3:58 PM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Natalie Portman has reportedly turned down a starring role in independent drama Adaline.

It would have been the 30-year-old actress's first film since the birth of her son Aleph in June.

The $25million Lakeshore/Kimmel Entertainment production, co-starring Angela Lansbury, tells the story of a woman born at the turn of the 20th century who becomes ageless after a freak accident.

After living a solitary life for years, she meets a man and falls in love and must decide whether to give up her immortality.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Portman's agent confirms she was offered the role but declined.

Last year, Katherine Heigl was set to star and Andy Tennant (The Bounty Hunter, Hitch) was attached to direct. But Heigl withdrew last November, saying she wasn't ready to return to work after recently adopting a child. Tennant has bowed out as well and Gabriele Muccino is now in the director's chair. »
