19 December 2014 11:55 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Pedro Pascal, who is best known as Oberyn Martell (a.k.a. The Red Viper) on HBO's Game of Thrones, is in negotiations to join Legendary's Untitled Great Wall Project. Matt Damon is still in talks to star, after entering negotiations back in September. Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston was also in talks to sign on back in September, but negotiations broke down and he is no longer involved. The project will mark the English-language directing debut for Chinese filmmaker Yimou Zhang (Hero).

Earlier reports revealed that the story will delve into the history of the Great Wall, and the dark secrets that are hid under the massive structure.

Will Ferrell Is Bound For San Quentin In First Trailer For Get Hard

19 December 2014 11:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has revealed the first trailer for Will Ferrell’s upcoming comedy, Get Hard. From director Etan Cohen, the Gary Sanchez-produced pic looks primed to kickstart Ferrell’s slapstick antics, which have been sorely missing from the cinema calendar as of late.

In the movie, the former SNL star appears as hedge fund manager, James. When the millionaire is indicted for fraud, his impending stint in prison fills him with dread. Luckily, Kevin Hart’s Darnell is on hand to prepare James for all of the experiences that await him behind the bars of San Quentin.

With the first preview now available (via Yahoo! Movies), we’re able to get a sense of what’s in store for the timid chappie while he gets himself ready for prison life. As stories go, the premise overall isn’t that enticing. It simply sounds like a re-hash of countless other »

Daniel Espinosa, director of Safe House who just wrapped on Child 44 with Tom Hardy. Fast & Furious director Justin Lin, who became available after The Bourne Legacy sequel with Jeremy Renner was pushed back to make way for Matt Damon's return.

Ensemble Mvp: The Rebirth of Edward Norton

9 December 2014 5:09 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I’m not sure what exact moment in Birdman it occurred to me that we were in the midst of a great Edward Norton Renaissance. Maybe it was when the walls of self-professed artistic integrity that his character Mike Shiner wears came crashing down in the face of Sam (Emma Stone), revealing the tragedy and isolation in his existence. Maybe it was when Mike was so in the moment as an actor, he wanted to have live sex on stage. Or maybe it was just the sight of Norton in a speedo wrestling with Michael Keaton. Either way, I finished that movie with the realization that we are in the midst of a rebirth of Edward Norton.

There was a time when Edward Norton was arguably the best actor on the planet. Just look at his filmography from 1996-2006, and count the number of classics he’s a part of. »

First Teaser For House Of Cards Season 3

1 December 2014 8:54 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There are short trailers, brief teasers and then there is this... new promo for the third season of House Of Cards on Netflix, which pretty much qualifies as a long .gif. Still, welcome President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and First Lady Claire (Robin Wright) as they board Air Force One (which given their presence should be renamed Scare Force One). A special message from the White House. https://t.co/YxFcHfA5qy— House of Cards (@HouseofCards) December 1, 2014 The political drama’s third season is still being kept as secret as one of Frank’s schemes, plot-wise, but we’re certain to see him exerting more Presidential power in the service of his own ends. And why not? He’s worked hard killed or manipulated a lot of people to get where he is, and we know from other shows (and, er, real life) that being President of the United »

Nightcrawler’s Dan Gilroy To Adapt Heist Thriller Storming Las Vegas For Antoine Fuqua

27 November 2014 10:01 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After overseeing one of the most revered films of the year in Nightcrawler, director-slash-screenwriter Dan Gilroy is set to return to scripting duties for his next project, Storming Las Vegas.

In an interview with The Wrap, Gilroy confirmed his involvement in the project, which will be directed by The Equalizer‘s Antoine Fuqua alongside regular producing partner Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Lifting the story from John Huddy’s eponymous, true-crime novel, Storming Las Vegas orbits around an adrenaline junkie known as Jose Vigoa who, upon arriving in Sin City, cooks up a ploy to hit the biggest casinos on the strip as he looks to get away with millions.

The novel’s by-line offers up a better take on the heist thriller, which sums up Vigoa’s adventure quite succinctly.

24 November 2014 6:34 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s your first look at the poster and photos from Get Hard. The film is scheduled to open nationwide on Friday, March 27, 2015.

When millionaire hedge fund manager James (Will Ferrell) is nailed for fraud and bound for a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him 30 days to get his affairs in order. Desperate, he turns to Darnell (Kevin Hart) to prep him for a life behind bars. But despite James’ one-percenter assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone been to prison.

Together, the two men do whatever it takes for James to “get hard” and, in the process, discover how wrong they were about a lot of things – including each other.

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart join forces in the feature comedy Get Hard, also starring Tip “T.I.” Harris, Alison Brie, and Craig T. Nelson.

Justin Lin to return to Fast & Furious franchise?

13 November 2014 2:59 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Fast & Furious 7 still a few months always from release, Universal is allegedly already planning Furious 8 and 9 back to back bringing the franchise to a close. Rumours are circulating that Universal are looking to bring back Justin Lin who directed Tokyo Drift through to Fast 6. Lin departed the franchise after Universal wanted to shoot the seventh instalment within stricter timescales; instead Conjuring director James Wan stepped in.

Following the release of Fast 6 in 2013, Vin Diesel talked about a new Fast & Furious trilogy, but Lin had already announced his departure from the franchise moving on to The Bourne Legacy 2 and directing a handful of episodes for True Detective season 2. However now Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass have announced their return to the Bourne franchise, Legacy 2 is now on hold freeing up Lin’s schedule.

The news comes from Deadline‘s Mike Fleming, who reports that Universal could soon begin talks »

Universal planning two final Fast & Furious movies

12 November 2014 11:07 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Justin Lin is reportedly being targeted to direct Fast & Furious 8 and Fast & Furious 9...

Well, by the looks of it, that Fast & Furious boxset is going to be nine movies long.

With Fast & Furious 7 heading into cinemas next April, Universal already has plans for Fast & Furious 8. But a new report suggests that the studio is looking to shoot both Fast & Furious 8 and Fast & Furious 9 back to back, which will bring the movie series to a close. Well, at least until the inevitable reboot.

Furthermore, the studio is reportedly looking to lure director Justin Lin back for the final two movies. Lin has helmed four movies in the series to date, from Tokyo Drift through to Fast & Furious 6. He ducked out of Fast & Furious 7 when Universal wanted a very quick turnaround on the film, the chair and megaphone instead going to The Conjuring's James Wan.

Justin Lin Returning To 'Fast & Furious' Franchise?

12 November 2014 10:31 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's been a lot of shuffling around going on at Universal Pictures as of late, and it looks like the core people behind their biggest franchise and what they hope will become their next big thing (their shared universe monsters franchise), are discussing how to proceed. Justin Lin damn near singlehandedly saved the Fast & Furious franchise, which was headed for straight-to-dvd territory after 2 Fast 2 Furious. With Tokyo Drift, Lin began a long overarching saga that switched up the dynamic of the films a bit and eventually upgraded the series to Gravy Train levels. But then he left after Fast & Furious 6, seemingly feeling a little burned out after four F&F movies in 7 years. 

But now, according to Deadline, he may be on his way back.

See, James Wan came on to direct Fast & Furious 7, and now- despite claiming in 2013 that he was done with horror films- he's decided »

Director Justin Lin Might Return to Fast & Furious Franchise to Bring Series to a Close

12 November 2014 9:12 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After Fast & Furious 6 was such a massive hit, director Justin Lin, who also helmed the previous three entries, had plenty of options.  Rather than return for the seventh Fast & Furious, he chose to direct a Bourne Legacy sequel, which seemed like a sound decision since, like Fast & Furious, it offered the opportunity to take control of a new franchise and build it into something better.  Meanwhile, James Wan (The Conjuring) took the reins of the Fast & Furious franchise, and Furious 7 will be due out next year. However, with Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass returning for the Bourne series, The Bourne Legacy 2 has been put on hold, which leaves Lin looking for a new film.  Although he still has a wealth of projects to choose from, it looks like he might be come back to Fast & Furious to not only continue the popular franchise, but to bring it to a conclusion. »

12 November 2014 8:39 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Director Justin Lin decided to step away from the Fast & Furious franchise after reviving the action series, starting with Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift and wrapping up with Fast & Furious 6. The next installment, Furious 7, is directed by James Wan, however, since the filmmaker is now slated to return to horror with The Conjuring 2, which just set a 2016 release date, someone else will probably have to step up for the next sequel. The good news is that a report from Deadline says Universal is looking to begin talking with Lin about returning to the franchise for a multi-part production that will end the franchise. Read on! Justin Lin is still slated to direct the sequel to The Bourne Legacy, but since Universal is focused on bringing another film focusing on Jason Bourne to the big screen in 2016 with Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass reuniting for a third round, that »

'Fast & Furious' Multi-Part Finale Targets Director Justin Lin

12 November 2014 8:37 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Justin Lin, the filmmaker who revitalized Universal Pictures' Fast & Furious franches, may be coming back for a multi-part finale. Little is known about the story being set up, but Deadline reveals that it will be an unspecified number of sequels shot back-to-back, which will bring this popular action series to its conclusion.

After making The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five and last year's Fast & Furious 6, Justin Lin bowed out from making next year's Furious 7, due to an accelerated production schedule. James Wan came on board shortly thereafter, but several things have transpired that could lead to Justin Lin's return.

We reported last month that James Wan is returning to direct the Warner Bros. horror sequel The Conjuring 2, which is already set for release on June 10, 2016. While that project will keep James Wan unavailable for the forseeable future, Justin Lin suddenly has »

Deadline is reporting that Universal and director Justin Lin are in talks for the filmmaker to helm the final entry in the series that will follow Furious 7.

Lin May Helm Final "Fast and Furious" Films?

12 November 2014 7:17 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the passing of Paul Walker, and the fact the franchise hasn't really seen much in the way of new blood coming on, could Universal's "Fast and Furious" franchise be planning to finish up?

Deadline reports that there's talk that director Justin Lin and Universal could re-team on the franchise. Lin came in on the third film in the series and turned opinion around on the franchise. The fifth film in particular proved to be a mainstream smash hit with strong critical notices. The sixth film also did strong business, and was Lin's last with the series.

James Wan took over for the upcoming "Furious 7," but with Wan's signing on for "The Conjuring" sequel and with the proposed Lin-directed follow-up to "The Bourne Legacy" now on the backburner, could Lin be coming back to the films that made him famous?

The site says they expect Lin and Universal to »

Matt Damon Confirms His Return to the 'Bourne' Franchise

10 November 2014 7:45 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

When the news arrived that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass had decided to return to the Jason Bourne franchise it didn't exactly seem like a sure thing as much as it seemed like the two were still waiting to give an official "yes" once the screenplay was completed. Well, it sounds like you can go ahead and ring the bell as Damon confirms in a red carpet interview with E! that he will play the character for a fourth time in what will effectively be the fifth Jason Bourne feature. It began when Ben Affleck, they were walking the red carpet for the fourth season of HBO's "Project Greenlight", said, "Well, Damon's going to be doing a Bourne movie next fall when I've just completely lost any semblance of physical fitness. So..." which led the E! interviewer to follow-up with Damon. "Yes, next year," Damon said. "It'll be in 2016 when »

Matt Damon Confirms Return As Jason Bourne

10 November 2014 1:44 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A few months ago, it was announced that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass would be reuniting to once again to bring super spy Jason Bourne to the big screen, after we all expected we had seen the last of the actor when the credits rolled on The Bourne Ultimatum. Now, speaking to E! News with Ben Affleck about their upcoming t.v. show Project Greenlight, Damon has confirmed the turn of events, after Affleck revealed he would be filming the new movie next year, saying, "It will be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out. Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that is all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes." This plays into previous reports that the new movie would be released on July 15th 2016, a date previously earmarked for a follow-up to Jeremy Renner's The Bourne Legacy   »
