Blimey, Samuel L. Jackson certainly likes helping out the young ‘uns. This newest project, Barely Lethal, once again has him cast in the role of mentor. He’s now in the final stages of negotiation to star in the latest from Brett Ratner’s Rat Entertainment banner.
True Grit star and Oscar-nominated Hailee Steinfeld is the only other big name attached so far. She will play the girl in question under Jackson’s tutelage. As a 16-year old international assassin tired of the killing game, she gives it all up to become a normal teenager. After faking her own death, she enrols as a senior in high school. Surviving high school proves to be more of a challenge than she bargained for though.
Jackson is to act as Steinfeld’s teacher who trains her “in the program.” Pegged as a teenage comedy, the film comes from an original script by newcomer John D’Arco. »

The story centers on Megan (Hailee Steinfeld), a 16-year-old girl who has been raised at an elite boarding school that trains teenage assassins. She decides to fake her own death and enroll at a local high school, to get a taste of "normal" high school life, which she soon learns is not all it's cracked up to be. Samuel L. Jackson will play Megan's mentor and trainer.
After spending the last couple of years overseeing a handful of superheroes, Samuel L. Jackson should have no trouble handling a teenage assassin.
Kyle Newman is helming with John D’Arco penning the script. John Cheng will join Ratner as a producer through their Rat Entertainment banner along with Ted Hartley and Vanessa Coifman for Rko Pictures and Hopscotch Pictures’ Sukee Chew.
Story follows a 16-year-old international assassin yearning for a “normal” adolescence who fakes her own death and enrolls as a senior in a suburban high school. Jackson will play her mentor who trains her in the program.

In “hey, I’ll give these guys a shot at this” news, Deadline reports that 28 Weeks Later and Intruders director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, newbie screenwriter Joshua Zetumer (he just penned the new Robocop remake), and Even Stevens and Holes star Shia Labeouf are set to team up on Zetumer’s Villain. Fresnadillo will direct (uh, of course) the psychological thriller that “follows two brothers who mysteriously re-connect in an unforgiving wilderness.” Labeouf will play one of the brothers (the villain?), with the other brother role reportedly set to be cast soon. For now, that’s all we know about the project, but that tantalizing bit of plot information is certainly rich with possibility. Obviously, there’s still a lot that could go wrong with this one, and much of the film’s success will depend on who they get to star opposite Labeouf (perhaps his Orphans replacement Ben Foster?), an actor who seems to be screaming out »

Like it or not, but brand new set photos from Jose Padilha‘s upcoming RoboCop remake have arrived! Straight from Vancouver Convention Centre come these new images with Joel Kinnaman aka Alex Murphy (aka part man – part machine) who is obviously more than ready to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. Head inside to take a look & let us know what you think! We will once again remind you that Kinnaman stars as a critically injured cop who (after OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save his life) returns to the street with amazing new abilities, but with issues...

We haven't heard from our old pal RoboCop since late January, but now director José Padilha, star Joel Kinnaman, along with the rest of the crew, are back in Vancouver shooting additional scenes for this somewhat anticipated, somewhat dreaded reboot. These are not 'reshoots' but pick-up shots, as everyone involved remains very enthusiastic about the project. New set video has arrived, offering a quick glimpse of Robocop (Joel Kinnaman) riding his specialized Robo-motorcycle.

Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and is directed by Jose Padilha. After a bunch of negative fanfare, the film has been pretty quiet for awhile now.

There was a time last year when we were hearing news on the Robocop reboot front every other day. After the film was pushed back from a Summer 2013 release to February 2014, things went a little quiet. Well now we have a few more set pics, giving us a detailed look at the new costume, as well as some on-set footage of a super fast motorbike. Jose Padilha’s remake is one of those films which is going to be met with criticism until it is released. There is no way of judging the quality of the actual film based on what we’ve seen so far, and all we can tell is that it is going to be different. The cast is what is keeping my attention so far, and I’m hoping for a film that is at least different from its predecessor.

Every single image we see of the new RoboCop suit makes us cringe. We keep telling ourselves, "It will look better in motion. Jose Padilha can make this work!" This latest crop though? Damn. See for yourself.
Jose Padilha's film stars Joel Kinnaman as the title hero plus Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Jay Baruchel, Michael Keaton, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Abbie Cornish, Aimee Garcia, and Jackie Earle Haley.

It's been a while since we've heard anything on Jose Padilha's remake of RoboCop. The film was originally scheduled to open in August, but was pushed back to next February. The last time we saw anything from the movie was in November, but now some new set photos and video have surfaced. These images show off the costume in greater detail, and while there's been some inevitable grumbling, I like the new look. The original outfit is iconic, and this isn't a radical departure, but it has enough of its own flavor to pay homage while still finding away to stand apart. As for the video, fast motorcycles are fast. Hit the jump to check out the set photos and video. The film stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel and Jackie Earle Haley. RoboCop opens February 7th, 2014. Via Cbm and Daily Mail. »

Anytime a big blockbuster is about to shoot scenes in public, the studios tend to release official photos of the characters to make sure that the first shots that fans see don't end up being paparazzi ones. "Man of Steel," "Captain America 2," "the Amazing Spider-Man 2" have all done that, but MGM has yet to do that for its upcoming "Robocop" reboot and the film has been shooting for months. Fans have seen lots of blurry and uninteresting photos, which ended up hurting any anticipation that they may have had. As a result, the studio also lost confidence in the film, taking away its summer release date and placing it for release in February of 2014. Today we have more photos from the movie that's been shooting at the Vancouver Olympic Cauldron, giving us a look at Joel Kinnaman as Robocop. Check out the photos below. Photos: (click to enlarge »

It’s no surprise that the latest feature from Canadian film collective Astron-6 is a laser blast of fun. A sort of fun that’s been long absent from genre cinema since the days of magnetic tapes & buzzing video stores. With their recent feature Father’S Day and the collection of shorts, it’s clear Astron-6 strive to homage that bygone era by simply keeping the spirit alive. That modus operandi faithfully extends to the groups’ sophomore feature Manborg, an insanely lo-fi, do-it-yourself epic that feels like a lost Empire Pictures’ cyborg classic.
And that’s the most radical endorsement I can think of.
During a war between humans & demons, our soon to be titular hero & a platoon of soldiers meet their demise by the hand of the evil Count Draculon (Adam Brooks) and his minion horde. Cue up a head banging title sequence mixed in with a montage showing the creation of Manborg, »

The film also features Danny Trejo (Machete Kills), James Gandolfini (Killing Them Softly), and Marianne Jean-Baptiste (RoboCop).
