'Bourne 5' Wants Viggo Mortensen as the Villain

19 June 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just hours after we reported that Bourne franchise star Julia Stiles is reprising her role as Nicky Parsons in Universal's Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, a new report has surfaced about who may play the bad guy. The Wrap's Jeff Sneider claims that Viggo Mortensen has been offered the main villain role, but it isn't known if the actor plans on accepting this offer or not. This will be the first time Matt Damon is returning to the beloved franchise since 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum.

Paul Greengrass is directing and co-writing the new Bourne screenplay with Christopher Rouse. No plot details have surfaced yet, but producer Frank Marshall recently revealed that they are in pre-production, with the filmmakers scouting locations and casting. It isn't known when production may begin, but the studio has already set a July 29, 2016 release date, so shooting may begin sooner than later.

Jeremy Renner's Still Getting His Own Bourne Sequel

19 June 2015 4:21 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

For a minute there it was simple. Matt Damon made three Jason Bourne movies then he decided he was done. So they made the spin-off The Bourne Legacy with Jeremy Renner. Then Damon had to go and complicate things by deciding to come back to the franchise. So what happens to Renner? While things have been far from clear for quite some time, it does look like both franchises are moving forward. Today SlashFilm published an interview with Frank Marshall, producer of the Bourne films (and about a million other things). When they asked him how Renner’s character would fit into the planned Matt Damon Bourne movie, Marshall had a single sentence response: They’re still two different projects, two different films. But what a sentence that is as it speaks volumes. When Damon and Paul Greengrass announced plans to return to the original Bourne franchise »

Julia Stiles Returns for 'Bourne 5', Viggo Mortensen Rumored as Villain

19 June 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

With a release date set for just over a year from now, casting on the fifth Jason Bourne movie is underway. Matt Damon is set to reprise his role as Jason Bourne and he'll be collaborating with Paul Greengrass as director after the duo took a break while Jeremy Renner starring in The Bourne Legacy for franchise creator Tony Gilroy. Today brings word Julia Stiles will be back once again as covert agent Nicky Parsons whom we last saw in a cafe learning Bourne's body wasn't found after he took a leap in the East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum. Stiles is the only confirmed cast member beyond Damon with no new names added just yet, though it has been rumored Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) is being sought for a major role and now Jeff Sneider of The Wrap reports Viggo Mortensen has »

Bourne 5 Is Bringing Back A Pivotal, Original Character

19 June 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Not only are both franchise star Matt Damon and two-time series director Paul Greengrass returning to the Bourne franchise for the upcoming fifth installment (assuming you consider The Bourne Legacy canon), they.re bringing along another key piece of the saga, Julia Stiles. According to Deadline, the upcoming action film has been busy casting, and Stiles is now the first confirmed addition to the call sheet, beyond Damon that is. She is set to reprise her role of Nicolette "Nicky" Parsons, a desk jockey CIA analyst who, over the course of the first three movies, proves to be a valuable ally to Damon.s amnesiac super spy, Jason Bourne. Nicky start off as a relatively small in the larger saga, though she serves as a kind of moral compass inside of the CIA.apparently she thinks it.s rather reprehensible to experiment with people and turn them into cold-blooded killing »

Julia Stiles Enlisted For Next Bourne Movie; Viggo Mortensen Offered Villainous Role

19 June 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: Variety reports that Viggo Mortensen, known for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, has been offered the villainous part of the assassin tracking Bourne, but he hasn’t accepted yet.

Original: The currently untitled Bourne 5 was already going to be a series reunion of sorts, with star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass both returning after having been absent for 2012’s The Bourne Legacy, and now another familiar face has been confirmed. Julia Stiles, who played Nicky Parsons in the first three Bourne movies, has just signed on to reprise her role in Universal’s “Untitled Next Bourne Chapter.”

Parsons, a covert agent, became a close ally of Jason Bourne’s (Damon) over the course of the franchise. Her return begs the question of whether Joan Allen, who also had a pivotal role in The Bourne IdentityThe Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, will be re-enlisted for what seems like a franchise pivot. »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

How the year 2012 helped redefine blockbuster movies

20 May 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...

The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.

Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.

The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »

Rachel Weisz To Star In Snatchback

14 May 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sorry, Dredd-heads, but it doesn’t look like director Pete Travis is waiting around in hopes of a green-light for a follow-up to his beloved but low-grossing 2012 comic-book adaptation. The helmer is now lining up kidnap thriller Snatchback, with Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz in the lead role.

Weisz (The Constant Gardener) will take on the role of Maureen Dabbagh, a real Virginia woman whose ex-husband kidnapped their two-year-old daughter and fled to the Middle East back in 1992. Dabbagh spent over 10 years tracking the pair across the volatile region before she finally got her daughter back.

In Snatchback, which Travis also scribed, the true story will get a rather Hollywood twist, with Dabbagh becoming a mercenary of sorts, embarking on dangerous missions to help other families to recover their kidnapped children from the Middle East while continuing her own search.

Weisz co-developed and will produce the project, which is currently »

Jeremy Renner Loves Hawkeye's 'F--k You Moment' in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

29 April 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The first "Avengers" movie was supposed to incorporate Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), a lethal sharpshooter who works for S.H.I.E.L.D. and who, after being briefly introduced in "Thor," would have taken a much larger role in the superhero team-up movie. But then, after being on-screen for about 15 seconds, the character was hypnotized by Loki into doing his evil bidding and ostensibly written out of the movie until the final action sequence in New York City. That's when Hawkeye really shined... the other two hours of the movie, not so much.

So it should delight and surprise just about everyone that Hawkeye pretty much steals the show in this week's "Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age of Ultron." A second-run character in everyone's eyes, since he can't fly or turn into a giant green range monster, Hawkeye's humanity ends up being his true superpower and he not only gets the »

Nothing else compares! Jeremy Renner has some pretty impressive movies on his resume — The Town, The Hurt Locker, The Avengers, American Hustle, and The Bourne Legacy, to name a few — but his favorite role to date is dad to daughter Ava, 2, his only child with estranged wife Sonni Pacheco.  Chatting with Ellen DeGeneres for an episode of her talk show airing Wednesday, April 15, the Avengers: Age of Ultron star joked that fatherhood had essentially ruined him for everything else in life.

Alex Garland of 'Ex Machina' follows others who took a writing-to-directing leap

11 April 2015 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »

Why Oscar Isaac Channeled Stanley Kubrick for 'Ex Machina' (Exclusive)

9 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There are good science fiction movies, and there are science fiction movies that realign your perception of the world, while thrusting you into some new or otherworldly space, full of unfamiliar technology or biology. Alex Garland is in the business of making the latter. The British novelist breathed life into the zombie movie with his script for Danny Boyle's "28 Days Later," and took audiences to the far flung reaches of space with their second collaboration, "Sunshine" (if you haven't seen it, please correct the error of your ways -- it's fabulous). Garland also adapted a beloved novel for the cloning saga "Never Let Me Go" and an equally beloved cult comic book for "Dredd" (again: outstanding, especially in 3D).

This week, Garland makes his directorial debut with "Ex Machina," a twisty-turny little science fiction film that stars Domhnall Gleeson as Caleb, a coder for a Google-like monolith called Bluebook. »

‘Hunger Games’ Composer James Newton Howard to Receive Max Steiner Award

25 March 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Newton Howard, the tireless film composer with more than 120 score credits and eight Oscar nominations, will receive the Max Steiner Award at the eighth annual Hollywood in Vienna event at Austria’s Vienna Concert Hall on Oct. 15-16.

Howard — whose scores in just the past three years include the quartet of “Hunger Games” movies, “Snow White and the Hunstman,” “Maleficent,” “The Bourne Legacy” and “Nightcrawler” — will follow in the footsteps of such past Steiner honorees as John Barry, Lalo Schifrin, Howard Shore and last year’s recipient, Randy Newman.

The award is named after the Austrian-born, Golden Age film composer behind such classics as “Gone With the Wind,” “Casablanca” and “King Kong.”

Howard is definitely one of the most versatile film composers of our time as he succeeds in writing both eerie classical mystery scores, uplifting comedy scores, electronic soundtracks as well as chart-winning songs,” said Hollywood in Vienna »

Sunny Deols Ghayal Returns to have Dan Bradley as the stunt co-ordinator

19 March 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

With Ghayal being a turning point in Sunny Deol's career, the action star decided to revive the memories and continue the film by making it a franchise of sorts. Though the actor has stayed mum over the turn of events related to the second installment, we hear that Sunny is making an extra effort to make Ghayal Returns, yet another landmark in his career. From shooting on real locations to hiring a Hollywood stunt co-ordinator, Ghayal Returns will be having a lot more novel elements compared to its prequel. Sunny Deol has roped in The Bourne Legacy fame Dan Bradley to create some unique action sequences for Ghayal Returns. Moreover, it is being said that, unlike the recent trend, Sunny wants to underplay in the stunt department and avoid over the top stunts. While the prequel had Meenakshi Sheshadri playing the female lead, Ghayal Returns will see Soha Ali Khan »
