Will a 'Transformers' / 'G.I. Joe' Crossover Movie Ever Happen?

21 June 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In this new cinematic age of movie team-ups and giant ensembles like Marvel's The Avengers and DC Comics' Justice League, it makes sense that Hasbro might bring together its two biggest properties for one giant movie experience. Well, don't hold your breath waiting for a Transformers/G.I. Joe movie crossover anytime soon. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura doesn't believe the stars will ever align in order to make this happen.

When asked by MTV about the prospects of Hasbro's toy giants coming together on the big screen, the producer had this to say:

"We haven't spent a moment on it. I know they did it in the comic books, but I think the reality that we're looking at is...It's hard enough to figure out how to do it alone and [then] trying to figure out how to do it together...I don't think that it's as organic as people think. »

Channing Tatum Says “I’m About as in as I Could Possibly Be” for Gambit; Hopes to “Change Up” the Superhero Movie

6 June 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though the “McConaissance” is all the rage at the moment, actor Channing Tatum has been undergoing a pretty impressive career transformation of his own over the past couple of years.  After working in films like Step Up, Dear John, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra early in his career, Tatum started taking some big risks with excellent payoffs.  Director Steven Soderbergh brought out a different side of the actor in Magic Mike, Haywire, and Side Effects, he proved to be fantastically adept at comedy with standout roles in 21 Jump Street and This Is the End, and he drew raves for his dramatic work in the dark drama Foxcatcher at that film’s Cannes premiere last month.  With these eclectic performances under his belt, Tatum now has his eyes set on something many other actors are vying for: his own superhero movie. Tatum has been keen on playing the X-Men »

Channing Tatum: I almost played Gambit in ‘X-Men: The Last Stand'

21 May 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) When longtime "X-Men" franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner last week confirmed that Channing Tatum has been cast as Gambit, it wasn’t the announcement that was so surprising — she and the actor have long made their interests clear — but rather the way it was made. When’s the last time plans for a film, and a potential franchise, were trotted out on a press line? However, what perhaps is surprising is that Tatum came close to playing the Cajun mutant eight years ago. In the June issue of "GQ," he reveals he was nearly cast as Gambit early in his acting career, in 2006′s "X-Men: The Last Stand," but then the role was written out of the film. When it came time for the character to make his big-screen debut in 2009′s "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," Tatum was busy with "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," so the part went to Taylor Kitsch. »

Marlon Wayans and Mike Epps Will Play Estranged Brothers In Action-Comedy 'Any Means Necessary'

21 May 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Marlon Wayans and Mike Epps are attached to star in the Sony Pictures buddy action-comedy Any Means Necessary, which tells the story of 2 estranged brothers who pair up to go undercover, according to Deadline. The fact that one brother is a cop (Wayans), and the other is a criminal (Epps), should only add to the drama and comedy. Originally written by David Elliot and Paul Lovett (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), Sony and producer Neal Moritz have tapped Rodney Barnes (who's previously re-writing scripts for Think Like A Man, Think Like A Man 2, and is the Executive Producer of Boondocks) to rewrite the script for Any Means Necessary, as the project becomes a »

Channing Tatum Talks Gambit Role And 'Magic Mike' Sequel

21 May 2014 12:33 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Channing Tatum has two big films opening this summer. First up is the comedy sequel 22 Jump Street, which co-stars Jonah Hill. And later in July, he'll appear in the sci-fi space opera Jupiter Ascending with Mila Kunis. So it's only obvious that Tatum's face would be everywhere right about now (and it is). Tatum is the subject of GQ's June issue, and in it he talks about his obsession for Gambit, which he's set to play in the next X-Men film, and he also dropped a few details on the upcoming Magic Mike sequel.

Last week, it was confirmed that Tatum would be playing Gambit in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse and his own spinoff film. The news first broke when producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that Tatum would be the one playing the role during a press junket for the latest X-Men movie. But it seems that Tatum was always destined to play Gambit. »

Channing Tatum Boards New Crime Thriller

7 May 2014 2:54 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Channing Tatum is a brilliant example of a fantastic actor to rise from obscurity to Hollywood stardom within the last ten years. After initially receiving criticism for poorly chosen roles in lightweight, underwritten films such as G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra and Dear John, Tatum is now one of the most highly regarded actors in Hollywood.

The Magic Mike star will next be seen in this summers Jupiter Ascending and 22 Jump Street, which are both looking to be brilliant popcorn flicks for a hopefully entertaining summer. It seems that the partnership between Tatum and Sony on the latter of his upcoming summer films, has lead to another upcoming project in the pipeline. It is being reported that Tatum will star in a brand new crime thriller for Sony which he will also produce alongside Reid Carolin, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (86th Academy Awards).

‘G.I. Joe 3′ Recruiting A New Director?

5 April 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Despite the fact that Paramount and Hasbro’s G.I. Joe films have received a largely negative response from critics, they have both been substantial hits at the worldwide box office. This of course has lead to the inevitable third film in the franchise receiving the greenlight, with a release planned for late 2015/early 2016.

Although the original 2009 film G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra, was arguably one of the most poorly written and over-the-top films of the last decade, its sequel was a huge improvement. 2013′s G.I. Joe: Retaliation took a different approach to its predecessor and swapped out its cheesy 80′s tone for a much grittier and darker atmosphere. The film also ignored/killed off the majority of the characters from the first instalment, in exchange for the brilliant additions of Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis. Although G.I. Joe: Retalitation still had its issues I thoroughly enjoyed the revamped sequel, »

What's It About? A blast from the past sends man-about-town Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo) reeling and reminiscing about his life and loves in Rome. The 65-year-old writer (of a sort) has had quite a life so far, but has he grown to take the richness of life and Rome for granted?

Odd Thomas review: tonight, on a very special episode…

7 March 2014 8:13 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It feels smaller and more rushed — and less plausible — than it should, but Anton Yelchin is charming, and the snappy comic tone sometimes works. I’m “biast” (pro): like Anton Yelchin

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Odd Thomas — that is his legal name — sees dead people. He also sees “bodachs,” sort of ectoplasmic reptilian spirit beings that feed on carnage. Usually he sees these one at a time, hanging around people who are about to be dead, so when suddenly there’s a shit-ton of bodachs oozing all over one particularly weird creepy guy in the diner where he works as a cook, he knows that something big and terrible is coming down the pike. Soon. And then he starts seeing the bodachs everywhere. As an amateur paranormal detective, Odd feels it »

Despite Delays, Odd Thomas Remains Eager To Please

25 February 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Communicating with the dead can be a mixed bag, special-abilities-wise, and in Odd Thomas, the eager-to-please latest effort from director Stephen Sommers(The Mummy), great paranormal power requires great responsibility.

Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin of the recent Star Treks) — yes, that's his real name — sees dead people. However, unlike that useless Sixth Sense kid, O.T. actually uses this talent to solve the murders of the recently deceased.

Just now hitting theaters after legal disputes put the kibosh on its summer 2013 release, Odd Thomas finds Sommers swinging for the fences like, well, like a guy whose last directorial effort was G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

Odd Man Out: Delayed Koontz Adaptation a Tone Deaf Misfire

Filmed way back in 2011 and then delayed indefinitely in 2013 due to legal actions woes in relation to marketing and advertising funds, Stephen Sommers’ adaptation of Dean Koontz’s novel, Odd Thomas, at long last arrives after notable anticipation. The first of a series of novels, the success of the film will dictate future adaptations, but the results, especially after such a long gestational period, are superbly woeful. Questionable casting and a gruesomely synthetic screenplay that awkwardly veers from broad comedy to schmoozy romance to demonic hunting super hero scenario gives the film an unappealing adolescent quality that only gets worse as the film drags on and on.

Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin), resides in the small California desert town, Pico Mundo. Having somewhat of a strange reputation due to his name, thus coined by his mother who now resides in »

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Talks 'Pompeii,' the 'Annie' Reboot, and Playing Black Panther

19 February 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In Paul W.S. Anderson's new historical disaster epic, "Pompeii," Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje plays Atticus, an African gladiator who needs one more victory in the Roman arena to obtain his freedom. To win that, he must face Milo (Kit Harington), a captured Celt and formidable fighter who thirsts for vengeance against the Romans who murdered his people. The relationship between Atticus and Milo, against the looming catastrophe of the erupting Mount Vesuvius, evolves from enemies to comrades to heroes, an arc that Akinnuoye-Agbaje handles elegantly.

Since launching his acting career in 1994, the London-born Akinnuoye-Agbaje has piled up a steady stream of credits that include films like "The Mummy Returns," "The Bourne Identity," "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" and more recently, "Thor: The Dark World." But the actor may be best known to American audiences for two TV roles: as Simon Adebisi for three years on the HBO prison drama "Oz" and as Mr. »

In a Nutshell: Odd Thomas

13 February 2014 1:59 AM, PST | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Stephen Sommers isn't used to spending 27 million dollars these days. The Mummy films, Van Helsing and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra cost an estimated 500 million dollars between them. Some might argue Sommers hasn't made a decent film since 1998's Deep Rising, but even that cost 45 million to make. For a while though, Stephen Sommers was box-office gold. Odd Thomas is his first film in four years. The film - based on the best-selling thriller by Dean Koontz - was delayed indefinitely in July 2013 because of legal action, but it's available now in the UK now for the first time. If you loved The Frighteners, chances are you're going to love this too. Small-town fry cook Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) is an ordinary guy with a paranormal secret: he sees dead people, everywhere.

Trailer for Stephen Sommers' Odd Thomas adaptation

5 February 2014 4:14 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite having just received a DVD release here in the UK, director Stephen Sommers' (The Mummy, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) adaptation of Dean Koontz' Odd Thomas has been gathering dust in terms of U.S. distribution since being delayed last summer, but the film has now secured a Stateside release this month and so we've been treated to a brand new trailer...

"Small-town fry cook Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) is an ordinary guy with a paranormal secret: he sees dead people, everywhere. When a creepy stranger shows up with an entourage of ghostly bodices -- predators who feed on pain and portend mass destruction -- Odd knows that his town is in serious trouble. Teaming up with his sweetheart Stormy (Addison Timlin) and the local sheriff (Willem Dafoe), Odd plunges into an epic battle of good versus evil to try to stop a disaster of apocalyptic proportions. »
