Watch: First Trailer For Tommy Lee Jones’ ‘The Homesman’

17 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The first trailer for Tommy Lee Jones’s upcoming western drama The Homesman has debuted online.

Overseeing acting, directing, writing and producing duties, Jones stars as George Briggs, a claim jumper spared from death by a pioneer woman (Hilary Swank, Million Dollar Baby) who makes a unique request in return; Briggs must usher three insane women on a journey from Nebraska to Iowa, braving the elements and avoiding thieves and dangerous figures along the way.

Based on Glendon Sarthout’s novel of the same name, the film is hotly tipped to be mentioned among the crop of films announced as part of the Cannes Film Festival 2014 line-up in the next few days.

The Homesman also stars Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), William Fichtner (The Lone Ranger), Meryl Streep (August: Osage County) and James Spader, who is carrying the villain baton in next year’s super-sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron, check the »

Kick-ass 2 Director to Rewrite Masters Of The Universe

11 April 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fan art by nebezial

Sony’s Masters of the Universe remake is getting a rewrite. Jeff Wadlow, writer and director of Kick-Ass 2, has been brought on board to do a rewrite on the script based on the ‘80s animated series, which was awesome. Kick-Ass 2 was not so awesome, so I’m not sure how to take this news.  

I used to watch the Dolph Lundgren Masters of the Universe every year on Christmas Eve, but it’s been so long that all I remember is Skeletor falling at the end of the final battle. (I guess that was a spoiler. Sorry.) The animated series is more engrained in my memory, and I spent a lot of time playing He-Man and She-Ra when I was a kid. In other words, don’t eff up my childhood memories, Wadlow.

The most recent draft of the script was written by Terry Rossio, »

Jeff Wadlow Drafting He-Man in ‘Masters Of The Universe’

10 April 2014 9:18 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Jeff Wadlow, coming off directing Kick-Ass 2 and writing an X-Force movie for 20th Century Fox is now taking up the chance to go to Eternia for Sony and work on the script for Masters of the Universe.

Previously, Jon Chu was attached to direct a Terry Rossio (The Lone Ranger) script, but Chu is very publicly tied up in another 80s toy cartoon adaptation Jem and the Holograms for Hasbro. This being a Mattel cartoon, well…

According to The Wrap, if the script is good, the directing gig could be his to, then he’ll get to play with He-Man and Skeltor in Castle Grayskull.

Prince Adam. I Have The Power! Seo out.

Jeff Wadlow Hired To Rewrite Masters Of The Universe

10 April 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Yesterday, a source for Schmoes Know.com reported that Jeff Wadlow ("Kick-Ass 2") had signed on to direct Sony's He-Man & The Masters Of The Universe live-action reboot. Today, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Wadlow has been brought in, but only to rewrite the script, originally penned by Terry Rossio (“The Lone Ranger”). Jeff Wadlow has come aboard to rewrite Masters of the Universe, Columbia’s big-screen adaptation of the popular 1980s Mattel toyline. At this stage, Wadlow, who wrote and directed Kick-Ass 2, does not have a deal to direct, although that remains a possibility down the road, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Wadlow, wrote and directed last year's Kick-Ass 2, and had been working on 20th Century Fox's X-Force film. This recent hiring may mean plans for an X-Force are being shelved. Wadlow may not be the director just yet, but Sony needs to find a replacement for Jon M. Chu, »

Star Wars: Episode VII Location & Casting, He-Man Director, Woodland Avengers, Timecop Reboot, Karl Urban Talks Dredd 2

10 April 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Star Wars Last week, rumors began circulating that J.J. Abrams might be revisiting some of the classic environments of the original Star Wars trilogy in Star Wars: Episode VII, namely the ice planet Hoth and the desert planet Tatooine. Now, THR is adding some weight to at least half of that rumor by reporting that a "source" inside the production has revealed that Abrams is building a "re-creation of Tatooine." Abrams is a self-avowed devotee of the original movies and the entire Skywalker storyline revolves around the desert planet so this seems like one slam-dunk of a rumor.

Far less certain is the recent rumor that a virtual unknown has landed a major role in the new trilogy. Again, THR is out in front of this rumor, placing Oxford-educated actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers "in line to nab" a key role, possibly as the Jedi daughter of Obi-Wan Kenobi. So far, the »

Kick-Ass 2's Jeff Wadlow to Rewrite Masters of the Universe

10 April 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Jeff Wadlow Will Direct Masters Of The Universe

9 April 2014 10:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: THR has confirmed that Wadlow will be re-writing the film, and is not yet signed on to direct.

Sony has been trying to get a live-action He-Man and the Masters of the Universe movie made for quite a while now, but they hit a bit of a roadblock when Jon M. Chu exited the director’s chair to work on G.I. Joe 3 instead. He’s since turned his attention to another beloved animated series, Jem and the Holograms, leaving Sony no choice but to look for someone else to fill his shoes.

Back in February, a shortlist of directors emerged, which included The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones helmer Harald Zwart, Chris McKay (who will be directing the Lego Movie sequel), Another Earth director Make Cahill, and Jeff Wadlow, the man behind Kick-Ass 2

According to Schmoes Know, the search is finally over as Sony has chosen Wadlow »

Jeff Wadlow Has Apparently Signed On To Direct Masters Of The Universe

9 April 2014 5:53 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to The Schmoes' Phantom scooper, Jeff Wadlow has signed on to direct Sony's planned reboot of Masters Of The Universe. That's signed, sealed, delivered -- they reckon it's only a matter of time before this one hits the trades. Wadlow had been lined up by Fox to direct their X-Force movie, but obviously that doesn't look good if he's chosen to bring He-Man, Fisto, Ram-Man, and the rest of the slightly pornographically monikered heroes to the big screen. Previous versions of scripts have veered away from the original cartoon quite a bit, but we have no idea what type of story Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lone Ranger) is currently working on. What do you think of this? Would you have preferred if Wadlow had stuck with X-Force? Is a Masters Of The Universe movie even a good idea in your opinion? »

Johnny Depp Kisses Jimmy Kimmel After Promising ‘Transcendence’ Is Going to Make the World ‘Get Weird’ (Video)

8 April 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Johnny Depp promised Jimmy Kimmel “it's going to get weird” when a real-life “Transcendence” scenario arrives in the near future, and then decided to get weird before that by lubing his lips up with chapstick and planting a wet one on the late-night show host's mouth. The kiss (above) came after Kimmel scolded the actor for getting engaged to actress Amber Heard behind his back, following an intimate moment they shared in July when Depp stopped by the show to promote “The Lone Ranger.” See photos: 49 Summer Movies on Our Radar: From ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ to Tina Fey's Next Comedy (Photos) “The last. »

As far I believe, these images posted by Hollywood stuntman and fight choreographer, Greg Van Borssum, are the first behind-the-scenes look at George Miller's Justice League: Mortal cast. You can see: Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger") who would've played Batman, Adam Brody ("The O.C.") who would've been The Flash, D.J. Cotrona ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") who would've played Superman, Megan Gale ("Project Runway Australia") who would've played Wonder Woman, Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes") who would've played Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne ("Mad Max: Fury Road") who would've played The Martian Manhunter, Teresa Palmer ("The Grudge 2") who would've played Talia Al Ghul and Jay Baruchel ("Goon") who would've played Maxwell Lord. Only main cast members not included in the images below are Common (John Stewart), Anton Yelchin (Wally West), Zoe Kazan (Iris West) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Alfred Pennyworth). In February of 2007, Warner Bros. hired Keiran and Michelle Mulroney to write a script »

Disney Pacts With Spain’s Atresmedia Television

7 April 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Re-upping on a stable relationship. Disney Spain has inked a multi-year movie volume deal with Atresmedia Television, one of Spain’s two biggest broadcast network groups.

Titles in the pact are “The Avengers, “The Lone Ranger,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Planes,” and “Saving Mr. Banks,” among others.

Disney movies sit well with Atresmedia’s predominantly family-skewed demos. While many broadcasters in Europe have scaled back on movies, Atresmedia has made big film titles one of its defining hallmarks: Further movies in the Atresmedia hopper include “Argo,” “The Bourne Legacy,” ”The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and “Skyfall.”

Spain’s crisis has also increased grid-time for bought in product, at the expense of costlier in-house fiction.

Hit by still weak consumer demand in Spain, TV ad spend in Spain plunged 8% year-on-year to around €1.65 billion ($2.3 billion) in 2013, 53% off its pre-crisis 2007 peak, per a Barlovento Comunicacion year-in-review study.
