Liam Neeson Eyes 'Tell No One' Remake & Channing Tatum Is 'Struck By Genius'

18 September 2014 6:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Moving along in fits and starts for years now, the remake/re-adaptation of "Tell No One" — based on the book by Harlan Coben, and turned into an excellent 2006 thriller by Guillaume Canet — has had some big names check it out. Ben Affleck was attached to direct for a while, and last year "Warrior" and "Pride & Glory" director Gavin O'Connor was linked for the job. But now, the project is being looked at by someone who knows what it's like to have someone taken from them. (Sorry, had to). Liam Neeson is being wined and dined to take the lead role in the movie, which has Chris Terrio ("Argo," "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice") penning the script. The simple yet effective plotline follows a doctor who, after his wife vanishes, is at first suspected of having murdered her, but then begins to receive clues that she may in fact still be alive. »

Why Tom Hardy Will Probably Never Make Another Romantic Comedy

14 September 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tom Hardy is best known for his serious work, be it turning up the drama in features like Warrior and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or just turning into a full-blown monster, as seen in movies like Bronson and The Dark Knight Rises. That said, two years ago he decided to branch out with a bit of lighter fare and tried doing a romantic comedy. What's unfortunate is that the experience has sworn him off the genre for the foreseeable future. This bit of knowledge was dropped by Tom Hardy in a recent interview with USA Today during the Toronto International Film Festival, where the actor was promoting his new movie The Drop, based on the novel and adapted by Dennis Lehane. During the conversation, Hardy revealed that he likes challenging himself by taking on projects unlike those he's tried before, but that his experiment doing the 2012 McG film This Means »

Tom Hardy says he's done with romantic comedies thanks to This Means War

12 September 2014 2:51 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Tom Hardy has done everything from sports drama (Warrior) to sci-fi (Inception), however there's one genre the actor isn't planning on returning to anytime soon: romantic comedies. In an interview with USA Today, Hardy said "I love to do things I hadn't done before," which may explain why he starred in McG's This Means War. But Hardy goes on to say he didn't enjoy working on the film, and because of that, doesn't think »

Tom Hardy Says He'll Never Do Another Romantic Comedy Again Thanks To 'This Means War'

11 September 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Tom Hardy's greatest attribute is his willingness to try anything and knock it out of the park. It's hard to believe the same actor who stormed the screen in Nicolas Winding Refn's "Bronson" spent 90 minutes on the phone in Steven Knight's "Locke." This weekend, the actor plays a weary Brooklynite in "The Drop," and on the horizon he's got roles ranging from badass post-apocalyptic warrior in next summer's "Mad Max: Fury Road" to Stalin-era soldier in "Child 44." Hardy mixes genres and characters with ease, but there's one thing you won't see him again anytime soon: a romantic comedy. Coming between "Warrior" and "Lawless," the actor reached for the studio rom-com ring with "This Means War," directed by McG and co-starring Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon. Met with dreadful reviews, the movie actually legged it out to a $150 million worldwide take (thank you international audiences), but was considered a. »

Tiff 2014: In voices sharp and soft, Tom Hardy sounds out

11 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

 

Think of Tom Hardy and what likely first comes to mind is his stout physical presence: his muscled mixed-martial arts fighter in Warrior or his hulking Batman villain, Bane, in The Dark Knight Rises.

But Hardy is, first and foremost, a talker. As he's developed as an actor, it's become increasingly clear how much voice plays a central role for Hardy. His characters are a richly varied assortment of vocalization. In two films this year, his verbal virtuosity is especially on display: the New York crime film The Drop, which opens Friday, and the earlier-released Locke, a drama almost entirely composed of Hardy talking on the phone while driving.

One is a mumbling mutterer, the other speaks with methodical precision. They couldn't sound more different, but in both cases, their speech entirely informs their character.

"The voice is a key silhouette, an audio silhouette," Hardy said in an interview shortly »

The 84th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Once again today I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Moneyball The nominees here for this ceremony were The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. »

Toronto Spotlight: ‘The Drop’ Scribe Dennis Lehane On Using Small Time Crime To Trigger Big Time Characters

6 September 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Dennis Lehane has had a more charmed run that most authors, watching his superb novels Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island get turned into fine movies. Now he’s adapted one of his short stories into the Fox Searchlight drama The Drop, with Bullhead helmer Michael R. Roskam launching the film at Toronto last night and a cast led by Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace, Bullhead‘s Matthias Schoenarts and John Ortiz. Here, Lehane discusses what it’s like to have his dialogue made better by great actors, and what Hollywood owes authors in turning their books into films.

Deadline: You have this gift for creating memorably desperate tough guy characters on the fringes of the criminal world. Where did the inspiration for Animal Rescue come from?

Lehane: It started just with an image. A guy walking in the snow, down a street, and he hears a noise. »

Eternal 'Expendables:' Mma Fighters Battle to Break Through in Hollywood

15 August 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A few weeks ago, in anticipation of Guardians of the Galaxy's theatrical release, I wrote about the Curse of Tor Johnson, named after the old-school wrestler (and Ed Wood muse) who may have also been responsible for 50 years of terrible performances from professional wrestlers.

Since I wrote for WWE's Monday Night Raw for about six months, I wondered if the presence of Dave Bautista, a former champion, would jinx Guardians' box-office mojo. Three weeks into its theatrical run (and more than $175 million in receipts later), it's safe to say the Curse has been broken. »

Three New 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Pictures & Official Synopsis

31 July 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've been piecing together a synopsis for Mad Max: Fury Road for awhile now, but have finally updated the site with the official synopsis for the film along with three new pictures (via JoBlo) from the movie. First... From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary Mad Max franchise, comes Mad Max: Fury Road, a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky. Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max (Tom Hardy) believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa (Charlize Theron). They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows. »

Mad Max: Fury Road Comic-Con Trailer Released

27 July 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Moviegoers last saw Max Rockatansky roaming the desert wasteland in 1985, but longtime fans of director/writer George Miller’s apocalyptic road rage series will be reunited with the widowed wanderer in May of 2015, when Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters, and you can get a taste of the post-apocalyptic mayhem to come with the first trailer that was originally unveiled yesterday at Comic-Con.

Directed by George Miller and set for a May 15th, 2015 release, Mad Max: Fury Road features Tom Hardy in the role of Max Rockatansky (previously played by Mel Gibson) and Charlize Theron as the tough-as-nails Imperator Furiosa. Fans of The Road Warrior should be happy to hear that the movie will essentially be one long chase scene with low amounts of dialogue and digital effects. Here’s the updated synopsis of the film, which was shot in Africa’s Namib Desert (updated synopsis courtesy of Collider!):

Sting Makes First Live WWE Apperance At San Diego Comic Con

24 July 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

There was a big WWE event at the San Diego Comic Con on Thursday. It’s one of the biggest Comic Con events in the world and WWE is always strongly represented. They were there to reveal their new Mattel action figures. At a lot of these Comic Cons there are also panels featuring WWE stars answering questions from fans in attendance. The advertised panel was made up of injured former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan, Paul Heyman and WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan. Michael Cole was there too. There was a surprise, though. In what would count as his first live WWE event appearance, the legendary Sting was there as well in his ring gear.

Sting wasn’t advertised for the event. It was a surprise for the fans in San Diego. Credit WWE for keeping it under wraps because there was no indication that he would be there. »
