'Kick-Ass' Creator Mark Millar on How to Succeed in Comics and Hollywood

11 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

If Mark Millar, one of The Hollywood Reporter's most powerful comic writers, has one piece of advice for other writers in Hollywood, it’s this: “Be unobtainable.” The 44-year-old creator of Wanted, Kick-Ass and next year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service practices what he preaches. “I go to L.A. just once a year and even with the time difference I never do a call after around 6:30 p.m. U.K. time,” he says. “Writers often try to please too much and I think it makes people take them for granted.” With a slate that includes

Chloë Grace Moretz Has "Flare"

19 November 2014 12:21 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ images of actress Chloë Grace Moretz ("Kick-Ass"), currently in talks to play young 'Jean Grey' for director Bryan Singer's upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" feature, in a recent fashion spread for "Flare" (Canada) magazine:

"It can be walking art," said Moretz about posing in various outfits for fashion magazines.

"Just put me in whatever is fun and interesting, things that I won’t be able to wear when I’m 30."

"People say don’t judge a book by its cover, but if someone wears a crazy outfit, they’re automatically a crazy person. If you wear a tame outfit, you’re automatically a prude." 

"I’m very driven in what I do...It’s the same when I’m acting. There’s no barriers..."

X-Men: Apocalypse starts casting its Jean Grey and Cyclops

19 November 2014 9:16 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In the “original trilogy” of X-Men movies, Famke Janssen was Bryan Singer and Brett Ratner’s Jean Grey. She was a force to be reckoned with, and she wore a heck of a lot of red. On the other side of the Jean-Scott coin, James Marsden’s Cyclops had enough cheek and charm to throw off Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) as a rival for Jean Grey’s attentions.

But that was then. This is now. Let’s get into some Days of Future Past spoilers.

With X-Men: Days Of Future Past rebooting the X-Men timeline and essentially erasing everything that happened in X-Men: The Last Stand, it makes sense that Janssen and Marsden are back, casually talking to Logan  at the end of Days of Future Past as if nothing happened.

In that scene, however, it’s clear that this is when Professor Xavier is much older (and more bald) – as »

X-men: Apocalypse - Actors Up for Young Jean Grey and Cyclops

19 November 2014 8:07 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is going introduce fans to a younger version of Jean Grey and Cyclops. The characters were previously portrayed by Famke Janssen and James Marsden. It wouldn’t make sense for them to reprise their roles, though, because the story for the upcoming sequel is set in the 1980s.

According to The Wrap the studio, is looking at casting either Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), Elle Fanning (Super 8) or Hailee Steinfeld (Ender’s Game) as a young Jean Grey. As for the part of Cyclops, they are looking at Ben Hardy (EastEnders), Charlie Rowe (Red Band Society), and Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar). The news comes from multiple sources close to the production at 20th Century Fox.

An insider confirmed that both Moretz and Fanning have met with Singer recently, but there are other up-and-coming actresses still in the mix. No official test offers have been made yet, but »

Six Actors in Talks for Cyclops and Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse

19 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Director Bryan Singer already said that "X-Men: Apocalypse" will mostly focus on the younger X-Men team. And now comes word that the helmer is in talks with several actors to play the roles of Jean Grey and Cyclops. For the role of Jean Grey, the list of actresses includes Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), Elle Fanning (Maleficent) and Hailee Steinfelf (True Grit). For the role of Cyclops, the actors being considered are Ben Hardy (EastEnders), Charlie Rowe (Never Let Me Go) and Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar). Singer has already met with some of actors, but is still considering others, including unknowns. Famke Janssen played Jean Grey in five "X-Men" movies, with Haley Ramm portraying the character in "X-Men: The Last Stand." Cyclops, aka Scott Summers, has been portrayed by James Marsden in four films and by Tim Pocock in "X-Men: Origins: Wolverine." »

New X-Men: Apocalypse casting rumours

18 November 2014 10:55 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Elle Fanning, Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld and Peter Beale from EastEnders are all on the X-Men: Apocalypse shortlist, it seems

Bryan Singer is homing in on new additions to the X-Men cast for his upcoming movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. The film will centre on the X-Men: First Class cast (and pick things up after X-Men: Days Of Future Past), but it'll also be introducing younger versions of characters we've already seen in previous X-Men adventures. As such, the search is on for acting talent to play the young versions of Cyclops and Jean Grey.

So who's on the short list?

For Jean Grey, The Wrap is reporting that Elle Fanning (last seen in Maleficent), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) are on the shortlist. Meanwhile, the younger Cyclops could be taking the form of Ben Hardy (Peter Beale in EastEnders, no less), Charlie Rowe (Walking With Dinosaurs) and »

X-Men: Apocalypse Shortlists For Cyclops And Jean Grey Emerge

18 November 2014 4:56 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though much of the cast from both X-Men: First Class and Days of Future Past will return for 2016’s trilogy capper X-Men: Apocalypse, there are several major roles that will be filled by franchise newcomers, namely those of present-day X-Men team leaders Scott Summers, a.k.a. Cyclops, and Jean Grey. Though James Marsden and Famke Janssen play Cyclops and Jean in the first few X-Men films, younger actors will take their place in Apocalypse, as it takes place in the 1980s, which is twenty or so years before the events of the first X-Men movie.

Thanks to TheWrap, we now have a new shortlist of actors for both Cyclops and Jean Grey, and they give us a good idea of how director Bryan Singer will cast the parts this time around. Three actors have been named as contenders for each role: Kick-Ass and Carrie star Chloe Grace MoretzMaleficent »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' reportedly eyeing Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld

18 November 2014 4:28 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Who will fill the superheroic boots of Famke Janssen and James Marsden? Rising stars Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld are all allegedly being eyed to play a teenage version of Jean Grey in Bryan Singer's 2016 "X-Men: Apocalypse," according to The Wrap. Janssen played the telepathic Grey in the first three "X-Men" films, and made cameo appearances in several others, including this year's hit "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Moretz has had significant superhero experience before, playing the pint-ized vigilante Hit-Girl in the two "Kick-Ass" films. Steinfeld, who was nominated for an Oscar for the Coen Brothers' "True Grit," did the action thing quite well in last year's "Ender's Game." Lastly, Fanning's closest brush with superhero shenanigans is most likely the recent fantasy hit "Maleficent." Additionally, up-and-comers Ben Hardy ("EastEnders"), Charlie Rowe ("Red Band Society") and Timothee Chalamet ("Interstellar") are reportedly being looked at to play the mutant »

Actors Line Up for Jean Grey and Cyclops Roles in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

18 November 2014 4:22 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I enjoyed X-Men: Days of Future Past and have a little bit of interest in seeing what Bryan Singer has planned for X-Men: Apocalypse, but I have to admit that when I see casting news that several actors are in contention to play the roles of Jean Grey and Cyclops in the film it feels a little like attempting to reinvent the wheel. Yes, I understand all franchises recast characters and I'm not above acknowledging the hypocrisy, but for whatever reason the fact this is supposed to be within the same world as all the other X-Men films it makes me wish we could just get a few new characters rather than reintroducing old ones with new faces. Especially when I thought both Famke Janssen and James Marsden did quite well with the roles. But pushing all the bitching and moaning aside, The Wrap has the skinny on the new talent, »

Tech Support: Period and fantasy do battle for Best Costume Design

30 October 2014 1:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Clothes don't make the man?" That rule certainly doesn't hold true in the movies. Dress can say a lot about characters, their class, their self-image, their self-consciousness, the period and place in which they live, the story they're living and how a director wishes an audience to perceive them. Fortunately, the Academy's Costume Design branch recognizes this, as it consistently proves itself to be one of the most original sects of the organization, not overtly swayed by a film's overall perception. Every year, films that are critically maligned and/or have no other nominations tend to score here and the overall state of the Best Picture race tends to play only a peripheral role. Nevertheless, trends can be noted. Period pieces almost always take a majority of the nominations, frequently all five. Glamor is also awarded frequently. There are also great designers (such as Sandy Powell, Milena Canonero and Colleen Atwood »
