Six of the Best: Michael Sheen

25 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Michael Sheen’s role in Masters of Sex resulted in his nomination for Best Actor in a Television Series this year, and you can see what all the fuss is about this Monday 28th July when the first season hits DVD in the UK.

Sheen plays Dr William Masters who, along with Lizzy Caplan’s Virginia Johnson, is a pioneering researcher in the field of human sexuality. The show was successful enough to draw a second season order, which is underway on Us TV as we speak.

This is just the latest in a line of successful roles for rising star Michael Sheen, who is becoming one of a number of new British stars successful in Hollywood. He has had numerous memorable roles, and here we take a look at six of the best…

In 2002′s Heartlands, Sheen plays Colin Lawes, a mild-mannered man running a newsagent with wife Sandra. »

Are CG characters now the main attraction in blockbusters?

21 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark wonders whether we're now at the point where CG characters matter more than human ones to Hollywood...

Feature

This article contains spoilers for Godzilla and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Also, there are some mild spoilers for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, but nothing you haven’t seen in the trailers.

In the last decade or so, computer generated characters have taken a quantum leap forward in blockbuster cinema. You can probably mark the transition around the time that Yoda went from being a Jim Henson creation to a digitally rendered sprite in Star Wars: Episode II, but bigger technological leaps have followed, particularly in performance capture.

Andy Serkis has been a big ambassador for this, earning a reputation as a Boris Karloff figure for the digital age in the process and a loyal core of fans who still insist that he deserved an Oscar for his turn »

Trailer For Ouija Announces Its Presence

16 July 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Transformers or the Ouija Board: which is the greater of these evils? What you might not know is that both are owned by Hasbro. Weirdly, despite its sinister reputation and its ancient origins as something supposedly genuine, the version of the Ouija Board most people know today is actually a variant of a commercial board game. That's why the toy company is involved in Ouija, the new teen horror from first-time director Stiles White. Olivia Cooke (The Quiet Ones, Bates Motel) stars, and the first trailer has just arrived, by medium of an independently ambulatory glass with poor spelling. See that "From the producer of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" line? That's the 2003 remake we're talking about, rather than the Tobe Hooper classic. The producer in question is a certain Michael Bay, working under his Platinum Dunes banner. The ubiquitous Jason Blum (Insidious, Sinister, Paranormal Activity, The Purge and so on) is also on the roster. »

Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund Eyed for 'True Detective' Season 2

11 July 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

HBO is refusing to give any comment on its possible True Detective Season 2 casting, but shortly after it was announced that Colin Farrell was in talks for one of four main leads, it was revealed that Taylor Kitsch is being eyed by the network to also star in the hit HBO drama series.

Colin Farrell will play the older lead male detective if he signs on, with Taylor Kitsch playing his younger partner. HBO programming president Michael Lombardo commented earlier in the week that an official casting announcement is coming soon.

An insider claims that Colin Farrell fills the character type HBO is looking for, a true movie star who is both rugged and gritty. The actor is said to be very close to signing his deal. At this time, it's not known if Taylor Kitsch has officially entered negotiations.

Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund is also rumored to be »

Colin Farrell In Talks to Star in HBO's 'True Detective' Season Two

11 July 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well finally, finally there is some news regarding the second season of HBO's "True Detective" worth reporting as The Wrap says Colin Farrell is in talks for one of the lead roles with Taylor Kitsch (John Carter, Lone Survivor) in contention to play one of the season's other characters and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) also rumored to be circling a role. Series writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto was recently quoted by The Daily Beast discussing the second season and said he's expanded on the characters he originally started with when he began writing saying, "They've deepened and become richer... I would say there are four central roles." If we're to gain anything from this casting story from The Wrap, three of those roles belong to males while there was hope the second season would be driven by at least one female character if not more. Perhaps it stands to assume the »

Colin Farrell in Talks for True Detective Season Two; Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund Also Eyed

11 July 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Despite how impressive the first few trailers for True Detective were, it’s fair to say that no one could have ever predicted just how huge the critically acclaimed series would become, creating intense speculation and theories online, and later the extremely funny #TrueDetectiveSeason2 hashtag.

Despite both being nominated for Emmys and a host of other awards, neither Matthew McConaughey or Woody Harrelson will return for season two of True Detective after their stories were wrapped up in the first eight episodes. A number of names have since been suggested and rumoured to replace them.

Well, we finally have something a little more definite as Deadline reports that Seven Psychopaths and Saving Mr. Banks star Colin Farrell is deep in talks for one of what is expected to be three main roles.

The Irish actor looks set to be joined by John Carter and Savages star Taylor Kitsch who The »

'Dumbo' Is Getting The Live-Action Treatment

9 July 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Disney is bringing Dumbo back to the big screen. The studio is developing a, you guessed it, live-action take on its 1941 animated classic. Ehren Kruger, who wrote the Transformers franchise, has been hired to pen the script.

Dumbo is one of the shortest, but also most moving animated features in Disney's movie repertoire. The film (you know, just in case you forgot) tells the story of a young circus elephant who is ridiculed because of his enormous ears. According to THR, the new take will tell the original story but also include "a unique family story that parallels Dumbo's story."

Lately, Disney has been in the game of turning old animated classics into live action movies, and it has worked out for them thus far. Most recently, the studio released Maleficent, which is a re-imagining of the 1959 movie Sleeping Beauty. The pic grossed more than $630 million worldwide. And before that, »

Transformers: Age of Extinction scribe hired to write live-action Dumbo movie

9 July 2014 2:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having written the scripts for one of the biggest money making franchises in cinemas at the moment, Transformers: Age of Extinction scribe Ehren Kruger has been hired by Disney to pen a live-action adaptation of the classic 1941 animated Dumbo.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kruger will write the script and serve as a producer alongside Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy). No release date has been set, but one would assume it would be part of Disney’s 2016 tentpole line-up. This new version will apparently take the original tale and add a “unique family story that parallels Dumbo’s story”. The studio believes that the latest CGI technology means we can see a live-action flying elephant.

Dumbo will join an ever-growing list of live-action Disney adaptations. This year’s Maleficent starring Angela Jolie, a re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty, grossed over $630 million and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland took over $1 billion at the global box office, »

Disney Developing Live-Action Dumbo Movie

8 July 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Disney is developing a live-action feature film adaptation of Dumbo, and you know how I know it's going to suck? Because it's being written by Ehren Kruger, who worked on all those terrible Transformers movie scripts. I'm not sure who could watch those Transformers movies and be like, "Wow! We've got hire the writer of this to write our movie!" Justin Springer is producing the film and he has worked on bringing films such as Tron: Legacy and Oblivion to life. 

I'm not the biggest fan of Dumbo. It might just be my least favorite of all the classic Disney animated movies. It's so damn depressing. The original film tells the story of a baby circus elephant who is made fun of for his big ears. His mother steps in to protect him at one point and is locked up for it. Dumbo ends up on the road with a »

Disney Wants Live-Action Dumbo To Take Flight

8 July 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Clearly emboldened by the success of Maleficent and without waiting to see how its latest adaptations of Cinderella or The Jungle Book perform, Disney has been digging through its animated archives again and has come up with Dumbo. Transformers: Age Of Extinction writer Ehren Kruger has been hired to turn the elephant tale into a live action adventure.Presumably, this updated take on the 1941 classic will blend CG with real-world settings to retell the tale of the elephant born with comically huge ears. Initially mocked for his giant lobes, Dumbo has the last laugh – and learns some important life lessons to boot – when his best pal, Timothy Q. Mouse, helps him learn how to fly.It’s early days for the new project, which so far only boasts Kruger on writing duty with Tron: Legacy producer Justin Springer set to produce. Dumbo represents the latest ‘toon title the Mouse House »

Ehren Kruger Is Writing A Live Action ‘Dumbo’ Movie

8 July 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ehren Kruger, the screenwriter behind films like Arlington Road, Scream 3 and the last three Transformers movies, has been hired by Disney to write the live-action Dumbo movie. After the massive success of their $600 million-taking Maleficent, which was released earlier on this year, and the future Jon Favreau directed The Jungle Book, the beloved tale of the big-eared elephant is the next classic Disney film to be adapted with real actors. Live-action versions of Cinderella and Beauty And The Beast are also in the works at the studio.

Kruger will also co-produce the film along with Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion).

The announcement of the Dumbo movie definitely makes us ask the question; which property will Disney pick on next? Robin Hood? The Black Cauldron? We can only hope.

Disney producing a live-action ‘Dumbo’

8 July 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

To continue in Disney’s recent trend of “brand deposits”, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Disney is currently developing a live-action version of their 1941 classic Dumbo, the Oscar winning children’s film complete with circus animals, a flying elephant with big ears, a tearjerking musical gem and all the storybook colors of the rainbow.

The film will be produced by Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy) and written by Ehren Kruger (Transformers).

THR also reminds that this comes on the tails of 2010′s Alice In Wonderland, 2014′s Maleficent and the upcoming adaptations of Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast. It’s only a matter of time before they drag out The Sword and the Stone reboot too.

If you’re wondering how they’ll get an elephant to fly, you can rest assured that the studio intends to make it CGI anyway. So while I’m intrigued by »

Live-Action Dumbo In The Works With Transformers Scribe

8 July 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As part of its on-going quest to devalue every happy cinematic memory from our childhoods, Disney is looking to turn its animated classic Dumbo into a live-action affair with the help of (wait for it) Transformers franchise writer Ehren Kruger. Because everyone knows that, when you want to make a movie about a kindly elephant with over-sized elephants, there’s no one better than the guy who gave us such gems as “There’s a missile in the living room,” “Prime’s taken my trophy case, and he will feel my wrath,” and my personal favorite, “Autobots, we’re going to prove who we are, and why we’re here” (and that’s just from Age of Extinction).

Justin Springer, who worked on Oblivion and Tron: Legacy, will be producing along with Kruger. Their version will adapt the original movie while “adding a unique family story that parallels Dumbo’s story. »

Disney Plans "Dumbo" Live-Action Remake

8 July 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Disney's 1941 animated classic "Dumbo" is set to be the next film set to score a live-action remake by the Mouse House.

The original 64-minute film follows a baby circus elephant who is made fun for his large ears. When his mother steps in to protect him and is locked up for it, he ends up on the road with a mouse as his companion.

The mouse instills into Dumbo the idea that with the help of a magic feather, he can fly. In order to pad it out, the new version also includes a unique family story said to parallel Dumbo's story. The flying elephant himself will be a CG creation.

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" scribe Ehren Kruger is penning the script for the new version and will produce alongside Justin Springer ("Tron: Legacy," "Oblivion").

Disney Developing Live-Action 'Dumbo' from 'Transformers' Writer

8 July 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Disney is still all about turning their classic animated stories into live-action films. Cinderella is on the way next spring, followed by The Jungle Book and a developing new take on Beauty and the Beast. And now we can toss one more onto the pile as THR has learned that the studio is developing a live-action version of the 1941 animated classic Dumbo for the big screen. In what seems like an odd pairing, the studio has hired Transformers franchise writer Ehren Kruger to write the script and also produce the film with Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion). They're not planning some crazy sci-fi version of the story are they? Thankfully, the film will mostly stay true to the original, which some might not remember only clocks in at 64 minutes. While we'll still see the story of Dumbo, an outcast elephant with giant floppy ears separated from his mother after she »

9 Comic-Con Surprises Sure to Happen

4 July 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even if you've never set foot in the San Diego Convention Center for Comic-Con, you likely know that there are always a healthy number of surprises that aren't listed on the already-massive schedule. Last year, Warner Bros. dropped perhaps one of the biggest bombs in Con history, by simply unveiling a logo, the merging of Batman and Superman's iconic symbols that let everyone know the forthcoming Man of Steel sequel was, in fact, something much, much greater: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Marvel did the same thing last year as well, with Joss Whedon announcing that the Marvel's The Avengers sequel will be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, thus revealing the main villain in the same breath.

Way back in 2008, my first year attending Sdcc, I was covering what I thought to be a rather innocuous Disney panel. Keep in mind, this is years before Disney had Marvel and LucasFilm in their stable. »
