Paramount Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninjas Turtles, and they’re looking to hire Earth to Echo director David Green to direct it. The studio is currently in talks with him to take on the challenge.
Jonathan Liebesman directed the last film, which I thought was absolutely awful in almost every way. I did not like that movie at all, and I’m a huge fan of the Ninja Turtles! It made $464 million at the box office worldwide, though, so it has an audience that buys in to the terribleness.

2012's Skyfall was one of the most acclaimed Bond chapters in history, and when director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan both confirmed their returns for Bond 24, you could almost hear the collective sigh of relief among 007 fans and movie buffs alike.
Below, Digital Spy rounds up some key facts about the actors, and what little we know about their respective characters.
Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser
While he's probably the biggest name on this list, the Austrian-born Waltz was more or less unknown to English-speaking audiences until 2009, when he starred in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.
His performance as the charismatic, sociopathic SS agent Hans Landa (aka 'The Jew Hunter') earned him an Oscar and a tidal wave of offers from Hollywood. »
I am not sure I expected that watching "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" would lead to my deepest conversation so far with my kids about divorce. Leave it to Tom Cruise. Not long ago, Toshi was pushing for more movies about spies. Anything, really. He has been reading about spies since I showed him his first Bond film almost two years ago, and since most of that series is inappropriate for him, he's been chafing, desperate to see something new. It was after screening it again just to double-check for any red flags that I decided to share "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" with them, and it was one of the best screenings we've had in a while. They're big Jackie Chan and Buster Keaton fans, and a big part of that fascination on their part comes from the idea that what they're looking at is "real." They understand that most of the time, »

Now that Interstellar has been in theaters for over a week, the film is getting talked about more openly. But before it even started screening for the public, there were more than a few complaints about the sound mix that was reportedly meticulously overseen by Christopher Nolan. This wouldn't be the first time Nolan had problems with sound as we all remember how difficult it was to understand Tom Hardy as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises teaser scene that played before Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, but there have been various issues surrounding the presentation of sound in the film, and Nolan has just responded. SlashFilm rounded up some of the more common complaints and sound issues some had at their screenings, and many of them were from the 35mm and 70mm showings, from sync issues to overpowering score and sound effects making dialogue hard to hear. However, Nolan »

One of the 8,000 things my kids are currently obsessed with is the Tom Cruise "Mission: Impossible" franchise. They've seen the franchise completely out of order, because I used "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" to win them over. By far, it's the best of the entire series, and they're already Brad Bird fans because of "The Iron Giant," "The Incredibles," and "Ratatouille," so when I showed it to them, all I had to do was tell them who made it. Actually, that's not true. The other thing I told them was about the stunt that Tom Cruise did, the highly-publicized climb up the outside of Burj Khalifa in Dubai. They're Jackie Chan fans already, and we discussed how Jackie did his own stunts and why that's special. It's something that we've talked about in terms of Buster Keaton as well. I hate to say it, but it's true… there's something special »

Tom Cruise is at it again, and looking to top his own death-defying stunts from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. We've seen the actor perform all kinds of crazy stunts over the years -- the sort of things that would make even grizzled stuntmen a little nervous. He famously sat atop the world's largest building in Dubai for a fantastic action sequence in the last Mission: Impossible movie. However, nothing is likely to top this new imagery of the actor hanging on to the side of...

Aside from all the tabloid gossip, Tom Cruise has become known for doing nearly all of his own stunts. One of the most insane stunts actually had him hanging on the outside of the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Now he's done something pretty ballsy yet again for Mission: Impossible 5. The Daily Mail reports that production in the United Kingdom just completed an action sequence where Tom Cruise actually strapped himself to the outside of an Airbus A400M military plane while it flew around the countryside at 5,000 feet up in the air. Look below now! Here's a video of the stunt in question from Mission: Impossible 5 (via The Daily Mail): And here's some photos as well, including some from The Tom Cruise Blog: @TomCruise clings to side of a military plane @ 5,000ft for Mission Impossible 5 http://t. »

Tom Cruise may be one of the biggest Hollywood stars, but he still takes his work very seriously. So seriously, that he constantly puts himself in danger to do some of the most difficult and insane stunts in order to create a better film. For "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," he ran down the side of the world's tallest building with just one harness keeping him from falling to his death. And now we have photos from the set of "Mission: Impossible 5," showing Cruise climbing on the outside of a military plane that's flying 5,000 feet in the air. Check out the photos below, which show a giant camera capturing all the action as Cruise hangs on to the plane's door. "Mission: Impossible 5" is set to hit theaters on December 25th, 2015.

In a little over a year from now, Chris McQuarrie's Mission Impossible film will land in theaters, and when it does you'll see Ethan Hunt clinging to the side of a Airbus A400M as the vehicle soars to 5,000 feet. Maybe that in and of itself doesn't sound all that exciting, but what if I told you 52-year-old Tom Cruise performed that stunt all by himself - no stuntmen. Yup, that's pretty darn impressive ... and dangerous. Cruise was recently spotted wearing two safety harnesses as he was filmed clinging to the door of the plane as it flew above the English countryside. The Daily Mail have some terrific close-up shots of Cruise performing this dangerous stunt; click here to view them. For Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol Cruise climbed and ran down the side of the world's tallest building (Burj Khalifa). Remember that free-climbing (Dead Horse Point) stunt in John Woo »
Back in March of this year, Disney struck a new deal with IMAX that included a slew of upcoming films. Some of them we've already seen in the giant screen like Maleficent and Guardians of the Galaxy, others like The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Tomorrowland are still coming. One film that was also included in the deal was Star Wars: Episode VII. However, just because the film would play IMAX screens, we didn't yet know if any of the film would be shot on IMAX film stock. But then word came that J.J. Abrams was using an IMAX camera (though the picture used as proof might have been from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) as confirmed by the big screen company. But now we know more about what was shot on IMAX. In a Variety report (via SlashFilm) on the use of IMAX in big mainstream films, there's this »

Last month, we attended Fantastic Fest, a film festival held in Austin, Texas, that is, to use a scientific term, totally bonkers. It's a place where new and incredibly weird genre movies play and are instantly eaten up (or harshly rejected) by geeky audiences. It's the kind of film festival that celebrates movies that contain (among other things) fountains of blood, animal cruelty, and full-frontal nudity. And it's where "John Wick" premiered.
And even though "John Wick" is a fairly mainstream affair by Fantastic Fest standards (it's American, features a movie star, and doesn't have a single weird Japanese ghost), it was one of the movies that everybody was talking about. (They had to squeeze in additional screenings to accommodate feverishly nerdy demand.) So, get ready America, "John Wick" is coming for you.

Not long ago there was a casting breakdown that leaked online from Sam Mendes' Bond 24. It revealed that producers were looking to cast someone to fill a villainous role that was described as being in the tradition of Jaws and Oddjob. Here is that casting description, which is for a character named Hinx:
We are looking to follow in the tradition of Jaws and Oddjob in finding an iconic baddy.“Hinx (Male, 30 – 45)”“Ideally over 6? 2?. Hinx is the main henchman/assassin. We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor. He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. He has to drive. We are looking for someone very unusual, possibly from a sports background.”“Height: 180cm – 195cm"

After being one of the most surprisingly entertaining parts of Guardians of the Galaxy this past summer, wrestler turned actor Dave Bautista has reportedly landed another big blockbuster role. Latino Review reports Bautista has bagged the iconic henchman role in James Bond 24. Talk of the role surfaced in August with Mi-6 revealing that this bad guy was going to be crafted in the mold of Jaws or Oddjob, but different than any of the villains who have been created before. The henchman's name is Hinx (that might be a codename), and will reportedly have several altercations with 007. This is such a huge role for Bautsita! The news comes hot on the heels of confirmation that Blue is the Warmest Color and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star Lea Seydoux would have a femme fatale role in James Bond 24. However, we're still waiting on any kind of plot details »

A couple of months ago a rumor hit that Léa Seydoux (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Blue is the Warmest Color) was the top choice to take on the lead female role in director Sam Mendes' Bond 24. The Daily Mail now reports that the actress has been cast as the story's femme fatale Bond girl.
Apparently, she's already signed up and ready to jump in on the next adventure, which starts shooting in six seeks. She will join Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, and Naomie Harris, who will all return to reprise their roles. According to the report, there will be a script rehearsal in late November.
The part she landed is a character originally written as someone with a Scandinavian background, but they changed it to French to fit the actress. There's really no information on what this next James Bond mission will entail, but I'm »

The paper says the "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," "Inglourious Basterds" and "Blue is the Warmest Color" actress has signed on to play a femme fatale in the new Daniel Craig-led film which begins shooting in six weeks.
The cast is expected to be in place for a script rehearsal scheduled for late November. Before that Seydoux will undergo costume, make-up and camera tests to determine her look for the film.
Rumors have previously indicated that the main 'Bond girl' of the film will be British, with the secondary one going to a Scandinavian. It is being suggested on talkback forums that Seydoux has scored the latter role which will likely be changed to a French character.
