Vince Vaughn To Lead Hacksaw Ridge For Mel Gibson

29 July 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At least the new season of True Detective is working for someone. Though it’s been raked over the coals by critics of late, the HBO crime drama is giving Vince Vaughn a chance to flex his dramatic muscles, and Mel Gibson has taken notice, enlisting the actor to star in his fact-based WWII story Hacksaw Ridge.

Andrew Garfield and Sam Worthington are already attached to star in the pic, which centres on Desmond Doss, the first Conscientious Objector in American history to be awarded the Medal of Honor.

Garfield, fresh out of the Amazing Spider-Man franchise, will play Doss in the movie, which will chart the journey of the 307th Infantry, 77th Army Division, 1st Battalion, Company B as they train for war. The story first picks up in South Carolina as they learn basic survival skills before they’re deployed to Japan to fight in what will become the Battle of Okinawa. »

Martin Campbell to Direct Jackie Chan in 'The Foreigner' Adaptation

15 July 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The next project for Jackie Chan is now in the works, with a new director officially attached. Deadline is reporting that Stx Entertainment is finalizing a deal with director Martin Campbell, who will be at the helm of an adaptation starring Jackie Chan. The film will be titled The Foreigner, adapted from Stephen Leather's novel The Chinaman, first published in 2008. Campbell last made Green Lantern but has been stuck in "movie prison" ever since, and is also responsible for Casino Royale, Edge of Darkness and Vertical Limit. Word is that they're aiming to start production this fall, with deals being finalized with everyone now. Here's the plot description from the book's listing on Amazon: The Chinaman understood death. Jungle-skilled, silent and lethal, he had killed for the Viet Cong and then for the Americans. He had watched helpless when his two eldest daughters had been raped and killed by Thai pirates. »

7 Actors Who Need A Liam Neeson-Style Comeback

15 March 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In 2008, if someone mentioned the name of actor Liam Neeson, chances are you immediately thought of him in one of two ways. It is likely that you automatically imagined the actor in his portrayals as historical figures – Oskar Schindler, Alfred Kinsey, Michael Collins – or of the gravitas he lent to franchises such as Star Wars and Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. However, that all changed with the release of Taken six winters ago. With his gruff heroics and thick voice, he became one of Hollywood’s most bankable action heroes. Not bad for a man who was 56 years old at the time.

Since Taken, Neeson’s star power has soared. As the biggest action stars of the previous generation (the Fords, Stallones and Schwarzeneggers) struggle to excite and entice audiences for a bloody time at the cinema, Neeson rose into one of the most in-charge (and in demand) action stars of the current era. »

First Look: Oscar Isaac & Garrett Hedlund Star in Monahan's 'Mojave'

6 March 2015 2:01 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After scripting thrillers like The Departed, Body of Lies and Edge of Darkness, in addition to making his directorial debut with London Boulevard, screenwriter William Monahan is back behind the camera for his sophomore effort, a new thriller called Mojave. The film was just announced as being part of the line-up at the Tribeca Film Festival next month, and with that news comes the first photos of the film with future Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac and Tron Legacy lead Garrett Hedlund. There's nothing too revealing, but Hedlund is sporting a new look, and the photos give off a pretty gritty, almost western vibe. Look now! Here's the first photos from William Monohan's Mojave (via The Playlist): Mojave is written and directed by William Monahan, director of London Boulevard and Oscar-winning screenwriter of Martin Scorsese's The Departed, Edge of Darkness and Body of Lies.

A screenwriter turns novelist, looking for less interference and fewer turkeys

21 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Thick of It’s Will Smith has left the shelter of Armando Iannucci’s writing squad to try his hand at novels – and wants to draw his reader in as they would be by a box set

I could never claim that I was driven to switch from television screenwriting to writing novels by the limitations of the TV storytelling palette. After all, we live in the era of the trinity of Davids – Chase, Simon and Milch – and their titanic achievements (The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood). That said, although this level of excellence is attainable, few apart from the Us cable showrunners are allowed to reach for it. This wasn’t always the case, but I sadly doubt a contemporary Edge of Darkness would feature an extended dialogue-free scene where a father slowly explores the contents of his murdered daughter’s room, finds a Geiger counter and a gun, »

Broadchurch season two, episode one review - an ingeniously seamless reboot

5 January 2015 4:41 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

David Tennant and Olivia Colman remain the highlight for now as the show’s two-year hiatus ends with a slight shift in genre

Broadchurch 2: a guide to who’s who

The only problem with making a TV drama that gains 8 million viewers, four Bafta awards and an American remake is the one that the second series of Broadchurch faced when it began at 9pm last night: you have to somehow follow it. Or at least, in modern TV, you do.

Many small-screen classics of the past – Edge of Darkness, The Singing Detective – disappeared after one series but, influenced by the Hollywood model of multiple remakes and sequels, TV has become comeback-hungry and the huge success of Broadchurch made a Broadchurch 2 inevitable, although the lengthy production process of an eight-part drama, combined with the busy diaries of stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman, has led to a frustrating wait of almost two years. »
