The Blu-ray edition of writer/director Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler streets on February 10 (available to stream right now) and it doesn't come with a wealth of features, but the audio commentary featuring Dan and his brothers Tony Gilroy, who served as producer, and John Gilroy, who served as the film's editor, is a fascinating listen. I took several notes while listening to the track but there are a couple things I have to say first, 1.) since they are brothers they sound very much alike and it's often difficult to tell them apart so don't expect too many direct quotes and 2.) while I can relay a lot of what I took away from the commentary it really stands as one you ought to listen to for yourself to entirely grasp everything they say. There is a very fluid motion to the conversation and frequently they'll discuss something entirely different from the »

Screenwriter Dan Gilroy made his directorial this year with Nightcrawler, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a corrupt freelance crime reporter who will do anything to get a story. Since the film’s premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, it’s garnered Oscar buzz and has been compared to best picture winner Crash (2004). It holds a 95 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, was named one of AFI’s top 10 films of the year and received four BAFTA nominations, as well as three Critics’ Choice Awards. Gyllenhaal has earned Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Critics’ Choice acting nominations. If Gilroy were to earn a nomination for best director, like Crash did, he would become the sixth director in the 21st century to achieve that accolade.

Almost as if they were celebrating something, Netflix have chosen Golden Globes time to unleash a new trailer for the incoming new season of House Of Cards. Prepare to be eyeballed by Kevin Spacey as he asks us to consider what takes real courage...Spacey, as you'll probably know by now, walked away with the Golden Globe for Best Actor In A TV Series, for his continuing portrayal of the ruthless and Machiavellian democrat VP (until recently, they said spoilerifically...) Frank Underwood."This is just the beginning of my revenge." he said in Underwood-style acceptance. "This is the eighth time I've been nominated. I can't fucking believe I won."Tony Gilroy, the man behind The Bourne Legacy, Michael Clayton and the Us version of State Of Play, joined House Of Cards' behind-the-scenes team this year as a consultant, so expect Jeremy Renner to show up as an assassin. Okay, »
As soon as it was announced that Matt Damon will be returning to the Bourne franchise in the untitled Bourne 5, fans have been wondering what that means for Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross from The Bourne Legacy. Will that character be simply erased from the fictional world? Will he get another adventure of his own somewhere down the line? Or will he actually get to be a part of an Avengers-style team-up that sees him working with Damon's Jason Bourne? According to producer Frank Marshall, it's mostly Option B, with a chance of Option C. Marshall - who has been an executive producer on the Bourne franchise since it launched with The Bourne Identity in 2002 - recently sat down for an interview with Collider, and when asked if Jeremy Renner was still going to be a part of the franchise going forward, the filmmaker firmly confirmed that he will be. »
Marshall told Collider when asked about a potential crossover: "We don't have plans for that. You never know. I never say never. But that's not the plan. They're on separate tracks.
"It was really the challenge of finding the story. If you look back five or six years ago, when we were maybe going on, we just didn't have a story. It's taken this long for us to come up with a story that everybody responded to."
Marshall appears to have changed his opinion, having previously stated in the lead-up to The Bourne Legacy's release: "You see there are several different [special ops] programmes »
Ever since it was revealed that Matt Damon was returning to the Jason Bourne franchise with director Paul Greengrass behind the camera again, fans were already hoping that there would be some kind of cross over with The Bourne Legacy franchise that Jeremy Renner stepped into in 2012. However, if producer Frank Marshall is to be believed, that may not happen at all. Though Marshall once said that Damon and Renner may be able to team up sometime down the road, a conversation with Collider indicated a complete 180 on that prospect happening as the producer says, "We don’t have plans for that." Read on! Of course, Marshall doesn't close the door entirely as he continues, "You never know. I never say never. But that’s not the plan. They’re on separate tracks." In a way that makes sense, but since both Aaron Cross and Jason Bourne have turned on »

Producer Frank Marshall is out doing press this week at the TCA Winter Press Tour and has spoken about both the next film in the Jason Bourne franchise, as well as the long-gestating sequel to the beloved family adventure film "The Goonies".
As we know, the next 'Bourne' film sees both Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass return to the franchise, and as a result the next film featuring Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross character from "The Bourne Legacy" is being pushed back.
Collider spoke with Marshall and asked if there is any plans for Renner's Cross to crossover with Damon's Bourne. Marshall says: "We don't have plans for that. You never know. I never say never. But that's not the plan. They're on separate tracks."
Marshall says the main reason Damon and Greengrass are returning is that they now have a story everyone is keen to do: "It was »

I enjoyed about 65% of The Bourne Legacy, the Jeremy Renner-starring spin-off of the original Bourne trilogy. The entire third act was a complete joke, but I was with it up until that point, and I thought it did a pretty good job pulling back the curtain to reveal some larger scheming and machinations that had been going on during the events of the first three films. Universal was all set to put out a sequel to that film with Justin Lin on board to direct, but against all odds, they were able to convince Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon to return to reprise their roles as director and star (respectively) in a brand new Bourne film, so the Legacy sequel was pushed back.
Considering that the two films already share the same cinematic universe (something that's all the rage in Hollywood right now), and that you have two Oscar-caliber actors attached in lead roles, »

Earlier this week, Universal Pictures shifted the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel from July 15, 2016 to July 29, 2016, which brings Matt Damon back as Jason Bourne for the first time since 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum. The actor had stated for years that he will not revisit the role unless Paul Greengrass comes back to direct, but back in September, Universal announced that this long-awaited sequel is finally happening. Ever since then, fans have been wondering if the studio plans on showcasing both Matt Damon's Jason Bourne and Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross from 2012's The Bourne Legacy in the same movie, since it isn't clear what is happening with the Untitled Jeremy Renner Bourne Sequel. During a new interview with Collider, producer Frank Marshall set the record straight, revealing that they have no plans to bring Jason Bourne and Aaron Cross together.
"We don't have plans for that. You never know. »
Two franchises starring Jeremy Renner are apparently going in opposite directions regarding what they want to do with the actor. For The Avengers, Renner is likely to never get a solo installment with his Marvel character, Hawkeye. He’s going to just be one of the ensemble in the big Avengers-title crossover blockbusters, and maybe he’ll show up on a future episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (if my guess about his recent Twitter tease is correct) or possibly a one-off short film at the very least. Then there’s the Bourne franchise, which he temporarily took over from Matt Damon until Damon announced his return for another sequel. We kept hearing that Renner’s character from the spin-off The Bourne Legacy would be in more movies, but once Damon’s next installment became a reality there was more assumption that the two stars would wind up sharing the screen in a crossover. “We »

I think we are all at least somewhat excited for the return of Matt Damon to the Bourne franchise, alongside director Paul Greengrass. But if you were expecting to see an overlapping of Damon’s Jason Bourne with Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross character from The Bourne Legacy, you are going to be disappointed. According to executive producer Frank Marshall, that crossover is not going to happen.
Speaking to interviewers following a panel about an upcoming Sinatra documentary, Marshall discussed the future of the Bourne franchise, as well as several other projects he has coming up. The producer is happy to have managed to get Damon and Greengrass back together for a new Bourne film, especially given that neither seemed to want to return to the franchise initially. But while Renner’s Aaron Cross will remain a part of the franchise itself, Marshall states that there are no plans to »

Ever since the word came that the Jeremy Renner led sequel to The Bourne Legacy was being pushed to accomodate Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass' return for Bourne 5, the internet has been abuzz with the potential cross-over of these two super-spies. No one had firmly ruled it out as a possibility. Until now, that is. Producer Frank Marshall was asked about whether or not we should get excited about seeing Aaron Cross and Jason Bourne facing off after each of their upcoming sequels. The »

Universal Pictures recently announced that it's bringing back Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass for a new "Jason Bourne" installment. The studio then placed Jeremy Renner's "The Bourne Legacy" sequel on hold and gave the film's release date to Matt Damon's Bourne movie. Now comes word that Damon's movie has moved from July 15th, 2016 to July 29th, 2016, possibly to avoid competing against "Star Trek 3." And even though fans have been hoping that the new film will unite Damon and Renner, it turns out there are currently no plans for that. "We don't have plans for that," said producer Frank Marshall. "You never know. I never say never. But that's not the plan. They.re on separate tracks." Marshall went on to say that Renner's "The Bourne Legacy" sequel is still in the works. »
Greg Ellwood recaps a recent Q&A that he moderated with Julianne Moore, the Best Actress frontrunner for "Still Alice." "The recent Cannes winner revealed that early on she told co-directors Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer that she wasn't going to perform anything she hadn't actually witnessed. 'I feel like even if I've read it about it and haven't seen it I don't know how to be completely accurate,' Moore says. 'All the behaviors in the movie were things I had seen or things had discussed with me.'" HitFix -Break- Updated: Experts' Oscars predictions in 24 categories In his intro to an in-depth interview with "Nightcrawler" writer/director Dan Gilroy, Pete Hammond writes: "After spending his career as a writer of such screenplays as 'The Bourne Legacy,' 'Chasers,' 'Real Steel' and many others, Gilroy, in his fifties, finally made his debut behind the c. »
“Scott, I’ve been watching you for a while now. You’re different. Now, don’t let anyone tell you that you have nothing to offer.” Ant-Man may feature a superhero who can shrink to microscopic sizes, but that unique ability could expand Marvel’s cinematic universe in a big way. Marvel has released the first trailer for Ant-Man, featuring a lot of screen time for Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, while also teasing an impressive supporting cast.
Press Release – “Set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015, the film is directed by Peyton Reed (“Bring it On,” “The Break-Up”) and stars Paul Rudd (“I Love You Man,” “Role Models”) as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, and Michael Douglas (“Behind The Candelabra,” “Wall Street”) as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly (“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” “Lost”) as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.

Jeremy Renner has slipped back into the role of Hawkeye this week for something that he's not going to discuss.
The "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" and "The Bourne Legacy" actor wrapped his work as Hawkeye in Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" back in August, yet today came the following posting on his WhoSay account:
Tues morn. I find myself in costume again. I just can't tell you why. And it still fits! #marvel #avengers #hawkeye
Additional photography is said to be taking place this month on "Avengers: Age of Ultron," making that the likeliest reason. However, there's also speculation Renner might be filming a cameo appearance for "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.". »

The release date for the fifth Bourne film has been revealed.
Matt Damon's return as Jason Bourne will release on July 29, 2016, Universal has announced.
Last year, Damon confirmed that the project would be hitting screens in 2016, while admitting all he needed to sign on to the sequel was for Greengrass to do the same.
He said: "Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that's all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes."
It has also been announced that Greengrass and Damon will be writing the screenplay themselves, alongside Christopher Rouse.
The Bourne franchise went from a tailspin after the middling performance of The Bourne Legacy to an updraft with the return of both Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass into the franchise fold for what's now simply being called Bourne 4. While the Justin Lin helmed/Jeremy Renner starring Bourne project is in a holding pattern, the Damon/Greengrass film is on the tarmac and ready to roll. But while things appear to be going well for the project, it seems that it's going to need just a bit more time before its ready to hit theaters. The L.A. Times is reporting that the new adventures of Jason Bourne have been pushed back two weeks, from the original July 15th, 2016 date to July 29th, 2016. This new slot takes the film out of the path of Star Trek 3's opening on July 8, 2016, and lands it in the original release date for »
Last September, fans rejoiced when it was announced that star Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) & director Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy; The Bourne Ultimatum) would both be returning to the Bourne franchise for Damon's fourth adventure as the amnesiac ex-cia assassin Jason Bourne. Their untitled Bourne return film, tentatively titled Bourne 5, was given the July 16, 2016 release date and effectively pushed The Bourne Legacy sequel, starring Jeremy Renner (The Avengers), back to an yet-to-be announced future date. Now, Variety is reporting that we may have to wait just a little bit longer to see Matt Damon don the black jacket once again. Facing stiff competition from Fox's Ice Age 5 & Paramount's Star Trek 3, Universal has decided to push Damon's Bourne 5 back two weeks to July 29, 2016. This is not an uncommon release date for a Bourne film as the previous three films in the franchise have seen »
As a result of 20th Century Fox re-arranging its release slate for the next couple of years, the untitled Bourne sequel set up at Universal is making a move. The fifth chapter in the Bourne series will now be delayed by a further two weeks, shifting its initial release from July 15th to July 29th, 2016. Filling a prime slot vacated by Matt Reeves’ next Planet Of The Apes sequel – which will now open in July 2017 – the next entry in the amnesiac spy saga is destined to reunite franchise alums Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon.
After years of the duo refusing to consider another sequel, they eventually reached a decision to resurrect Jason Bourne and Damon himself broadcast the news on his Project Greenlight show. Director Greengrass and leading man Damon originally exited the series following the third instalment, The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007. Despite Universal’s enthusiasm to continue forward with further sequels, »
