Schwarzenegger Shows Dramatic Chops in Trailer For Zombie Film Maggie!!

25 March 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

 I don’t know about fright fanatics, but I have loved every film Schwarzenegger has made after coming out of acting retirement. Sure, The Escape Plan was “eh”, but everything else, right up my alley. I’m absolutely in love with the idea of Arnold fronting a drama, this one (Maggie) being about a man (played by Schwarzenegger) stuck in post apocalyptic USA with a zombie invasion in full effect, trying to save his daughter (Abigail Breslin), who is unfortunately slowly turning into one of the undead herself. While this whole concept of a loved one becoming a zombie could quite easily head into cheesy fare (Life After Beth), judging from the trailer for Maggie, the laughs are absent, and Arnold plays the role very subtlety, something I for one, am looking forward to. What do you fright fanatics think? Will you be seeing this one, when it hits theaters »

Steven de Souza talks his Commando 2 script – did it become Die Hard?

24 March 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As previously stated, we at Flickering Myth love Commando. Which is why we’re always upset that it never got a sequel – only it very nearly did! One of the Internet’s most famous rumours is that the script for Commando 2 eventually became Die Hard, the movie that launched the action career of Bruce Willis. However, screenwriter Steven de Souza has confirmed that this is not the case.

“I don’t know how this story started on the Internet – it’s completely wrong,” he told Bristol Bad Film Club. “Die Hard is based on a novel called Nothing Lasts Forever by the author Roderick Thorpe, which is a sequel to his early book The Detective. In fact, a good bar bet if you want to make some cash is to ask someone, ‘Who was the first actor to play John McClane and in what movie?’ They will say, ‘Bruce Willis »

'Supergirl' Casts 'Iron Man' Actor as the Commander

5 March 2015 6:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one day after production started on CBS' Supergirl pilot, yet another new cast member has been added, with Faran Tahir signing on to play a character known as The Commander. While there is no Commander character in the DC Comics, he is described as an alien who is also "a military expert leading the forces aligned against Supergirl." It's possible that The Commander character name is just a ruse to cover up a more established comic book character, but that has not been confirmed.

Faran Tahir joins a cast that includes Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, a.k.a. Kara Zor-El, Mehcad Brooks as Kara's CatCo co-worker and photographer James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, Kara's birth mother, Chyler Leigh as Kara's foster sister Alexandra "Alex" Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow "Winn" Schott, a CatCo programmer and Kara's neighbor, and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, who in the comics »

'Cowboy Ninja Viking' Lines Up 'John Wick' Directors

29 January 2015 12:50 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few months after actor Chris Pratt was confirmed to star in Universal Pictures' Cowboy Ninja Viking, the studio is in early talks with John Wick directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski to take the helm. Variety's sources reveal that Chris Pratt personally met with the filmmakers, giving them his approval before an offer went out from the studio.

The plot is based on the graphic novel of the same name by A.J. Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo, which centers on a man with multiple-personality disorder. He is put into a secretive government program to become a super-soldier who possesses the skills of a cowboy, ninja and a Viking. Universal has been putting Cowboy Ninja Viking on the fast track to get production started before Chris Pratt's growing schedule. Still, it isn't completely clear when production will start, since the actor is scheduled to shoot The Magnificent Seven »

Bruce Willis Will Be Taken in Extraction

21 January 2015 8:17 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

On the heels of the theatrical and VOD debut of Vice last Friday, Bruce Willis is re-teaming with the producers of that sci-fi thriller for another movie called Extraction. This one will similarly shoot in Alabama and similarly sounds like another cheap genre flick suited for a direct-to-video release coupled by good box office overseas. According to Deadline, Willis will play a CIA agent who is kidnapped and has to be rescued by his son, who is also a CIA agent, when the government passes on mounting a mission themselves. Is it just a role-reversed remake of A Good Day to Die Hard? Should they just cast Jai Courtney as the younger spy and some foreign markets can actually retitle it A Good Day to Die Hard 2 on their DVD covers? Extraction will be directed by Steven C. Miller, helmer of the 2012 Silent Night, Deadly Night remake, and is written by someone named Umair Aleem, who »

Person of Interest Bosses Talk Shaw's Exit/Possible Return, 'Pissed-Off' Root and a 'Hard Left Turn' Ahead

10 January 2015 8:30 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When Sarah Shahi revealed to her Person of Interest bosses that she was expecting (twins!), their reaction to losing a key player went from an initial “Oh, s–t” to an opportunistic “Oh, yeah!”

Because, they tell TVLine, the CBS drama had been looking to off a major character this season. “We’re not making that show” where “nothing happens,” showrunner Jonah Nolan explains.

On the heels of Shahi sharing her own story about how her pregnant pause gave birth to a shocking twist, Nolan and co-showrunner Greg Plageman here discuss the team “turmoil” ahead for Shaw’s teammates, that pair of unexpected liplocks, »
