The bromance between Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg has been unfolding for a while now. The helmer has taken roles in the Wahlberg-produced HBO series "Entourage" and "Ballers," directed the actor in "Lone Survivor" and the currently shooting "Deepwater Horizon," and they've also got the blockbuster "Six Billion Dollar Man" brewing. And they've lined up yet another to collaborate on. Read More: 'Wild Tales' Director Damian Szifron Will Pen The Screenplay For Mark Wahlberg's 'Six Billion Dollar Man' THR reports that Wahlberg, Ronda Rousey (who starred in the Wahlberg-produced "Entourage" movie), and "The Raid" star Iko Uwais will team up for "Mile 22," with Berg behind the camera. Penned by Graham Roland ("Fringe," "Lost"), the story sounds pretty rote, following a CIA agent stationed in Indonesia who has to take his informant 22 miles from the city to the airport, with, of course, many »

Batman: Arkham Knight
Developed by Rocksteady Studios
Published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
PC, PS4 (reviewed), Xbox One
In 2009 Rocksteady achieved what many thought was impossible; they made a genuinely good Batman game. With Arkham Asylum they created a claustrophobic atmosphere, told an enjoyable story featuring many of the caped crusader’s most notorious villains, and crafted a battle system that has been aped by everything from Shadow of Mordor to Sleeping Dogs. It wasn’t a perfect game, suffering from copy-pasted boss encounters and a couple of narrative mis-steps, but it was strong enough to inspire confidence that one day we’d get a dark knight video game that would do justice to the long-running DC Comics superhero.
Six years later and Arkham Asylum remains the best game in the Arkham series. First sequel City improved on the original by adding more villains and an impressive array of side-quests, »

Game Of Throne season 6 has firmed up its list of directors, including Miguel Sapochnik of the magnificent Hardhome...
For anyone curious about which directors might be returning for Game Of Thrones season 6, today an official list has been confirmed. The biggest news, for us at least? That'd be Miguel Sapochnik, who has been bumped up to directing the final two episodes having impressed so much with season 5's Hardhome battle. That makes us think that season 6 might end with a big fight, too.
Notable for their absence once again are previous directing regulars Alex Graves, David Nutter, Alik Sakharov and Michelle Maclaren. Neil Marshall too, helmer of Blackwater and The Watchers On The Wall, won't be returning next time around by the looks of things.
Directing: Episodes 1 & 2
Season 5 credits: Kill the Boy, Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken Other credits: The Pacific, »

Like their forerunners, the two latest Star Trek films, in their semi-rebooted, alternative universe, are replete with famous faces from outside the franchise, surprising cameos and multiple little touches that raise a smile.
With the third film in the rebooted series coming next year, the 50th anniversary of the debut of Star Trek on TV in 1966, let's take a look at a few of the geeky nods in Jj's Trek films.
1. Star Trek Nemesis left a lot of dangling threads, on purpose, as a story treatment for a direct sequel was already being worked on. Unfortunately due to some less than stellar decisions by executives, the release date of the film was repositioned and the decision was made to »

Whatever they used to have over the Whedon family breakfasts back in the day, they should bottle it. Joss Whedon you know all about, Jed Whedon too has been producing Agents Of Shield and Dollhouse. And of course there's Zack Whedon too, who is set to direct the upcoming movie, Come And Find Me.
Zack Whedon has, as you likely know, already written for the likes of Deadwood, Fringe and Southland, and there was the small matter of Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. For his directorial debut, he's telling the story of a man who's hunting his missing ex-girlfriend, having discovered that she's not quite who he thought.
Whedon - half-brother to Avengers filmmaker Joss - has also written the script which features the Breaking Bad actor as David, a man looking for his missing girlfriend.
Upon discovering she had been lying to him and wasn't who she said she was, his search becomes even more important.
Deadline reports that shooting is to begin in Vancouver next month.
Meanwhile, Paul has recently been cast in Hulu series The Way, which follows a family involved in a controversial religious movement.
He was also forced to apologise to Breaking Bad fans after hinting on Twitter the show would be returning before revealing it was a prank. »

So it looks like Akiva Goldsman and Michael Bay are taking a page out of the TV model for their upcoming “Transformers” Cinematic Universe, its sequels, its spin-offs, its potential prequels and more. Rather than hire one writer per film—or if you’re Warner Bros. pit multiple writers against each other for “Wonder Woman” or Sony doing the same for their female driven "21 Jump Street" spinoff— Goldsman and Bay are adopting the TV model of a writers room think tank: anywhere from seven to ten writers in a room who toss around ideas all day and break stories. It’s a collective, best-ideas win approach and they’ve decided that’s best for the Tcu. “There is such reciprocity between TV and movies now, that we’re borrowing this from TV,” Goldsman told Deadline recently. “I got a taste of this from J.J. Abrams when I came in to write an episode of ‘Fringe, »

When Jon Voight agreed to take the role of Mickey on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” he was enthusiastic about being a part of a capable ensemble and didn’t give any thought to where his name might land in the credits.
“I’m a real character actor. I like stutters and limps,” says Voight, who built a career on playing leading men in films like 1969’s “Midnight Cowboy” and 1978’s “Coming Home,” for which he won an Oscar. “Every role is a character, and some of the characters are enjoyable to me because they’re so crazy. So Mickey’s perfect. I was fortunate to meet with him at this juncture.”
Voight is just one of the accomplished actors better known for playing »

The Transformers writer’s room has been making the headlines recently, adding more and more names to the list of storytellers who have been tasked with moving the franchise forward through a range of prequels, sequels and spin-offs. The final piece has now fallen into place with the announcement that Steven DeKnight will take the last seat at that table. DeKnight is riding a wave a success following the impressive debut of the first season of Daredevil on Netflix – a series for which he was showrunner, in addition to writing, directing and producing.
DeKnight joins a creative team that already consists of Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (whose script Hibernation was featured on the Black List), Christina Hodson (Shut In), newcomer Lindsey Beer, Andrew Barrer (Haunt), Gabriel Ferrari (Barrer’s writing partner), Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), Zak Penn (Avengers Assemble »
