Ving Rhames Confirmed to Return to Action in 'Mission: Impossible 5'

18 August 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

At one time, there were rumblings that Jeremy Renner might take over the Mission: Impossible franchise from Tom Cruise as the latter superstar seemed to be fading from box office glory. But Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol proved to be a big success, and Cruise is still very much on board to star in Mission: Impossible 5 from director Christopher McQuarrie, and Renner will be back in a supporting role along with the return of Simon Pegg. Now one more franchise star is back as McQuarrie himself took to Twitter to welcome back Ving Rhames to the production, reprising his role as Imf agent Luther Stickell. Read on! Here's Christopher McQuarrie's confirmation of Ving Rhames in Mission: Impossible 5 from Twitter: Welcome back, Mr. Rhames. cc: @TomCruise @simonpegg @Renner4Real #MI5Diary— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) August 16, 2014 Rhames only had a small cameo role in Ghost Protocol, but we're hoping that »

Ving Rhames confirmed to return for Mission: Impossible 5

17 August 2014 10:39 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Christopher McQuarrie confirms the return of Ving Rhames for the next Mission: Impossible movie...

Production on the fifth Mission: Impossible film gets underway in the UK later this year, with Jack Reacher helmer Christopher McQuarrie reuniting with Tom Cruise to direct the film. Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner are also confirmed to return, with Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson set to be amongst the new additions to the cast.

On his Twitter feed, Christopher McQuarrie has confirmed the return of Ving Rhames too, hopefully in a bigger role that we saw him in towards the end of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol back in 2011. Rhames will reprise the role of Luther Stickell, having played the part in every Mission: Impossible film to date.

The film is due in cinemas in December 2015.

Ving Rhames to appear in Mission: Impossible 5

17 August 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ving Rhames will appear in Mission: Impossible 5.

The actor was welcomed to the production on Twitter by director Christopher McQuarrie, who used the hashtag "MI5Diary".

Rhames has appeared in all four previous instalments of the series as Luther Stickell, and is the only character besides Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) to do so.

He'll join returning cast members Cruise, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner, as well as new female lead Rebecca Ferguson.

Welcome back, Mr. Rhames.

Cruise previously revealed that Mission: Impossible V will begin filming in London and in Vienna.

Mission: Impossible V will open in the Us on December 25, 2015 and in the UK on December 26, 2015.

Mission: Impossible 5 Is Bringing Back Ving Rhames

17 August 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While Tom Cruise is certainly the true headliner of the Mission: Impossible franchise, he's not the only recurring star. He only had a cameo appearance at the end of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, but Ving Rhames is the only actor other than Cruise to appear in all four of the series' titles. We had very little doubt that he wouldn't be getting the call to return for the in-development Mission: Impossible 5, but now it seems the deal is officially sealed. If Mission: Impossible 5 director Christopher McQuarrie's official Twitter feed can be considered a reliable source (I think it's safe), then it seems that Ving Rhames has officially come aboard for the sequel: Welcome back, Mr. Rhames. cc: @TomCruise @simonpegg @Renner4Real #MI5Diary— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) August 16, 2014 In the Mission: Impossible movies, Rhames is known for playing Luther Stickell, an Imf agent who works alongside Crusie's Ethan Hunt »

Ving Rhames is Returning for 'Mission: Impossible 5'

17 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night director Christopher McQuarrie tweeted out a confirmation that Ving Rhames will be returning to play Luther Stickell in Mission: Impossible 5 alongside Tom Cruise who's back as Ethan Hunt, Simon Pegg returning as tech guru Benji Dunn and Jeremy Renner reprising his role as William Brandt from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. The tweet does not mention Rebecca Ferguson who's assumed to be taking on the lead female role in this film or Alec Baldwin who's also rumored to be playing a high-ranking CIA officer overseeing Hunt's division, similar to the role played by Laurence Fishburne in Mission: Impossible III. Filming is expected to begin soon for a December 25, 2015 release and as for Rhames' return, I hope it's more than just the cameo role he played in Ghost Protocol, I like having him around in this franchise. More please. https://twitter.com/chrismcquarrie/statuses/500756253237600257 »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Sequel Announced, Release Date Revealed

11 August 2014 3:43 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Paramount Pictures' "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot was a big hit, grossing $97 million worldwide during its opening weekend. The film surpassed all expectations, which is why the studio just announced that it's developing a sequel. Screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, who wrote the reboot as well as "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," have been hired to write a follow-up. Michael Bay will once again produce, but it's not clear whether Jonathan Liebesman will return to direct. "Launching a new take on the Turtles into the feature film world was a daunting task because as fans of them ourselves, we felt a great responsibility to ensure audiences were going to experience everything they loved about the Turtles, while also getting to see them brought to life in a way they had never been seen before," said Paramount. "The result exceeded our high expectations and the response to the film is beyond great, »

8 August 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Bond 24 is in the process of gearing up for production. The last we heard was that Skyfall co-writers, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, were brought on to polish up the script with some humor. The latest news comes from Schmoes Know, who say that Lea Seydoux (Mission: Impossible - Ghost ProtocolBlue is the Warmest Color) is the top choice to take on the female lead opposite Daniel Craig in the film.

There's no official word on who she would play in the film if this rumor turns out to be true, but the site does speculate that the character is Miranda Frost. A source close to the production revealed earlier this year that producers were looking for the following: "Lead Female (30-40) Attractive, sophisticated, cool and calm secret agent." According to the site their source said that this was the breakdown for the Frost character, who first appeared »

Lea Seydoux is Rumored as Top Choice for Role in James Bond 24

8 August 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following news that the script for James Bond 24 had to be overhauled in order to add some more thrills to the proceedings, a new rumors has popped up concerning a co-star for franchise star Daniel Craig.

While it would be cool to see an actress of Seydoux's caliber enter the James Bond universe, the actress already played with spies in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, where she was an assassin who faced off with the Impossible »

Warcraft Title Sequence

26 July 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Legendary screened some early footage from Duncan Jone’s Warcraft movie. By all accounts, the reception for the footage was tame by Hall H standards and many commentators suggesting that the movie is a long way off from completion. To tide us over, Legendary have released a brief title animation. The cast includes Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Toby Kebbell (The Counselor), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma) and Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim) have all signed on the dotted line. The movie shall hit cinemas on March 11th 2016. The release kind of seems pointless in a way, but you Warcraft fans are lapping this up right?

Team Top Ten: Best TV to Film Adaptations of All Time

19 July 2014 5:42 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Amir here, to welcome you to another edition of Team Top Ten, a poll of all of the website’s contributors. The topic du jour given that it's Emmy season is Best Films Adaptated from TV Series.

For as long as film and TV have coexisted, their fates, stars, successes, failures and histories have been entangled. Their ever-shifting dynamic has had an immense impact on both industries. The complexity of their relationship made devising a list like this one quite difficult, beginning with the question of what really constitutes an adaptation. For example, The Holy Grail and Life of Brian are not adapted from Monty Python's The Flying Circus; they are inspired by it, but one is more inspired than the other, so we rendered the former film eligible and the latter ineligible. On the other hand, series like Mission Impossible and Naked Gun present a different type of challenge »

Tom Cruise's female 'Mission: Impossible 5' co-star is 'Hercules'' Rebecca Ferguson

9 July 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tom Cruise has a new love interest - at least in theory. Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson, who won a Golden Globe nod for her performance in last year's BBC/Starz miniseries "The White Queen," has won the coveted female lead in "Mission: Impossible 5," according to Deadline. The actress joins returning stars Cruise, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner in the Christopher McQuarrie-directed sequel, which (as we found out earlier today) Alec Baldwin is also reportedly in talks for. The followup is set to begin filming in August. In addition to her role in the forthcoming Dwayne Johnson action vehicle "Hercules," Ferguson's credits include Swedish soap opera "Nya tider," "Wallander" and Ridley Scott's scrapped Showtime pilot "The Vatican." Other upcoming films include "Despite the Falling Snow" opposite Charles Dance and "The Red Tent" co-starring Morena Baccarin, Minnie Driver, Iain Glen and Debra Winger.

Simon Pegg Rumored to Have Small Role in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

12 June 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

With the bulk of the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII already announced, and the addition of Lupita Nyong's and Gwendoline Christie beefing up the female presence recently, there's probably not many integral roles in the film left to be revealed. However, IGN Middle East (via Bleeding Cool) has word that Shaun of the Dead and Star Trek star Simon Pegg has a small role in the sci-fi sequel. But it doesn't sound like it's very extensive, because Pegg has apparently already completed shooting what will likely amount to a cameo on the set of the film in Abu Dhabi, which has since completed as production has moved to London. Pegg has been a staple of the films of J.J. Abrams playing Scotty in the Star Trek reboot franchise, and also had a supporting role in Mission: Impossible III and an expanded role in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, so »

Robin Thicke Names New Album 'Paula'

12 June 2014 6:37 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Robin Thicke is not giving up on Paula Patton.

Robin Thicke is clearly not giving up on his estranged wife Paula Patton!

The Blurred Lines singer, 37, is naming his upcoming album Paula as a tribute to the Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol actress, 38, whom he split with in February after nine years of marriage, E! News reports.

Thicke has made it no secret in the past that he wants to reconcile with Patton, his high school sweetheart, even debuting his single Get Her Back at the Billboard Awards with this statement: "All right, y'all, help me get her back."

Though perhaps Thicke's bold moves are working.

Patton told Vanity Fair in May that there will always be a "deep love" between the two.

"We've known each other since we were teenagers. All I can tell you is there's a deep love there -- always was, and »

16 Sequels that Were Better than the First Movie

9 June 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In today's world of studio movie making, let's face it, it's all about franchising. It's all about the sequels. In fact, this weekend we have two sequels hitting theaters in 22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2. The first is a comedy sequel and it's receiving great reviews, despite the fact comedies rarely have good sequels. The second has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of the summer and perhaps the biggest animated movie of 2014. Whyc Sequels sell and if they're good they sell even more. That said, last week I started considering the sequels that were actually better than the original film in any given franchise. This isn't a question of what are the best sequelsc (I've already made that list.) Instead, what sequels managed to exceed the quality and entertainment of the film(s) that came before them. In this sense I have »

Jeremy Renner has confirmed he will be appearing in Mission: Impossible 5.

Speaking to Yahoo!, the actor said he would reprise his role as William Brandt in the fifth instalment of the series.

After being asked if he would be interested in starring in a second season of hit show True Detective, he said: "I'm kind of strapped time-wise doing Avengers 2, and Mission: Impossible 5 is rearing its head, and then they want to do another Bourne movie."

Renner will be joining previous cast mates Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg in the latest sequel, but it is not yet known whether Paula Patton will return to portray Jane Carter.

Cruise recently revealed that the film will be shot in London later this year.

Mission: Impossible 5 will open in the Us on December 25, 2015 and in the UK on Boxing Day (December 26), 2015.

When did big budget star vehicles become the underdogs?

After the curious case of Edge Of Tomorrow’s surprise critical popularity, Rob investigates a strange Hollywood happening…

Feature

The release of Edge Of Tomorrow - which opened in the Us this past weekend, following its bow in the UK a week earlier - has brought, not for the first time, a strange Hollywood trend to light. And it's this: do we trust big stars to make decent movies anymore?

Many people, this writer included, took a lot of convincing to venture out and see Tom Cruise in a hugely expensive sci-fi spectacular (notwithstanding the fact that Cruise has fine form in science fiction). The film in question, Edge Of Tomorrow, is directed by Doug Liman of The Bourne Identity, and based on a graphic novel with a cool title. So surely this should have been a movie which audiences were enthusiastically anticipating? Yet It didn’t seem that way, »
