Glenn Howerton Was 2nd Choice For Star-Lord In Guardians Of The Galaxy

19 November 2014 7:32 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn recently revealed that had Chris Pratt turned down the role of Star-Lord, he and Marvel would have made an offer to Glenn Howerton.  At this point, it's hard to imagine anyone turning down Marvel for any reason except other contractual obligations or scheduing conflicts.  Said Gunn,  "Glenn came along a little bit later, but there was a good chance that, if I didn't cast Chris, that I would've cast Glenn Howerton in the role." That's interesting considering the long, Long, Long list of candidates initially in the running for the role. To be exact, Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Lee Pace (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy), James Marsden (X-Men) Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom), Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Zachary Levi (Chuck), Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises »

Thn Interview: Frank Grillo About ‘The Purge: Anarchy’

19 November 2014 5:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This week sees the UK home entertainment release of The Purge: Anarchy and you can read our review here. The film is of course a sequel to 2013’s The Purge, which starred Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey. The first film introduced the set up; in near future America the government have deemed all crimes legal for twelve hours, one night a year. You can commit any crime from jay-walking to murder without any repercussions. In the first movie Hawke and Headey’s picture-perfect family life came under threat as their house was broken into during Purge Night.

The Purge: Anarchy follows an entirely new set of characters who find themselves trapped out on the streets during the carnage. At the head of the group is an enigmatic character referenced to only as Sergeant, played by Frank Grillo. Ahead of the DVD release we were fortunate enough to spend time with »

Crossbones Is Main "Civil War" Villain?

17 November 2014 8:44 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

We know that "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Frank Grillo is set to return in future Marvel films and will reprise his role of Brock Rumlow, who becomes the villain Crossbones. Grillo himself is keeping mum though as says he knows "less then (sic) nothing" about his part in the future Marvel's cinematic universe.

Now, Variety reporter Justin Kroll has tweeted that the "Kingdom" and "Warrior" actor has a more vital role to play in the third "Captain America" film than you might expect. In fact, he may be the film's primary antagonist:

Beat by Marvel in that one, two things he will play villain but not main one, Crossbones still main

Gary Oldman in Talks for Mark Kassen’s ‘Criminal Empire for Dummies’ (Exclusive)

15 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mark Kassen is set to direct the gangster comedy “Criminal Empire for Dummies,” with Gary Oldman in talks to star.

Kassen, who directed “Puncture,” will produce with Gremi Films’ Greg Hajdarowicz and Bo Cerba, and Cutting Edge Group’s James Gibb and Henry Boger.

“It is very cool that the deal closed at the festival, as this is where James and I first met,” Kassen said. “A year later, we have a terrific script, and a great team backing the film.”

“Mark is a great choice of director for this gangster comedy,” Gibb added. “When were both guests of the film festival last year, »

Anna Kendrick and J.K. Simmons in Talks to Join Ben Affleck in 'The Accountant'

13 November 2014 8:20 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Accountant sounds like an extremely stupid movie to me. Ben Affleck will play a man who is an accountant by day and an assassin by night. I hope the film has a sense of humor about itself, but director Gavin O'Connor's track record (Warrior, Pride and Glory) does not suggest it will. However, this piece of casting news gives me more hope on what the film will be. Anna Kendrick and J.K. Simmons are doing some extremely fine work as of late. Simmons is looking at an Oscar nomination for Whiplash, which he very much deserves for that performance. Kendrick just gave what I think is the best performance of her career thus far in The Last 5 Years (read my review here) and will next be seen in another musical adaptation this Christmas with Into the Woods. The two are operating at high levels and are some »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Tom Hardy

13 November 2014 5:42 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Vertigo Films

In Great Britain, there are plenty of great actors. In the last few years alone, Colin Firth, Christian Bale and Daniel Day Lewis have all walked away from the Academy Awards ceremony with statues in hand. Go back a few more years and you can add the names of Rachel Weisz, Tilda Swinton, Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren to the list of winners, and there’s no sign of the talent pool drying up any time soon.

This week alone, there are two films opening which showcase two of the finest young talents: The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing; and The Drop, in which Tom Hardy appears alongside the late James Gandolfini. Cumberbatch is currently one of the frontrunners to be nominated in the Best Actor category early next year, while Hardy’s low-key performance is apparently engaging but unlikely to see his name feature among the awards contenders. »

Leeds International Film Festival 2014 Review – The Drop (2014)

13 November 2014 3:51 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Drop, 2014.

Directed by Michaël R. Roskam.

Starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, James Gandolfini, Matthias Schoenaerts, Elizabeth Rodriguez, James Frecheville and John Ortiz.

Synopsis:

Bob Saginowski just tends bar, keeping himself to himself as gangsters use his bar as ‘The Drop’ to funnel cash between gangs in the course of a night. But when the bar is robbed, he gets caught between good guys, gangsters and a pitbull named Rocco.

The Drop, the screenwriting debut of crime novelist Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone, Mystic River), might not reach the heights of either of those films, but it’s an entertaining, slow burning crime drama, with a great central performance by Tom Hardy.

Set in the bowels of Brooklyn, where there seems to be more bars than stools for folk to sit on, it’s a low key drama, where every character is hiding something shady about their past. But it’s Tom Hardy’s character, »

Anna Kendrick Circles 'The Accountant' Starring Ben Affleck

12 November 2014 6:41 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one month after Ben Affleck boarded the Warner Bros. thriller The Accountant, the supporting cast is coming together, with Anna Kendrick and J.K. Simmons in talks to join.

The story centers on a mild-mannered accountant (Ben Affleck) who spends his free time as a killer for hire. While Variety's report states that Anna Kendrick is in talks for an unspecified role, The Hollywood Reporter claims that her deal is still too far off, and it may not be finalized. No details were given for Anna Kendrick or J.K. Simmons' characters.

Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) is directing from a script by Bill Dubuque (The Judge), which landed on the Black List in 2011 but has been in various stages of development since then. Sony first picked up the project, but put it into turnaround, when Warner Bros. picked it up. Lynette Howell and Mark Williams are producing, with shooting scheduled to begin in January. »

Casting: Anna Kendrick Adds Ups Ben Affleck's 'Accountant,' Armie Hammer Ready For 'Birth' & More

12 November 2014 2:53 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Up In The Air" co-stars Anna Kendrick and J.K. Simmons will team up again in "The Accountant," with Ben Affleck slated to lead. Gavin O'Connor ("Warrior," "Jane Got A Gun") will direct this one about "a mild-mannered accountant who moonlights as a lethal assassin." Better pray this guy doesn't give you an audit. Filming begins in January. [Variety/THR] Armie Hammer will witness "The Birth Of A Nation." He joins Nate Parker's directorial debut, which he also wrote and will star in, that tells the true story of "Nat Turner, who led a bloody rebellion in 1831 and went down in history as one of the most controversial American figures preceding the Civil War." [Deadline] The completely necessary "Skyline" sequel has now added "The Raid" star Iko Uwais to the cast. He joins Frank Grillo in the movie, playing "the leader of an underground resistance that forms after aliens touch down on »

Anna Kendrick & J.K. Simmons Join Ben Affleck in 'The Accountant'

12 November 2014 2:08 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Once Ben Affleck is finished with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, he's going to stick around Warner Bros. for an action thriller directed by Warrior helmer Gavin O'Connor. The movie is called The Accountant and comes from an original script by Bill Dubuque, the man responsible for writing The Judge (apparently this guy likes movie titles based on average occupations). Production is slated to begin in January and the supporting cast is starting to fill to with Variety reporting that Anna Kendrick is in early talks to take on her first real action flick and THR saying that J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) is also joining. The Accountant follows a mild-mannered banking professional who moonlights as a lethal assassin. Sounds pretty generic, but maybe having O'Connor behind the camera and having a talented cast could make it work. As for who Kendrick and Simmons would play, there's no details on that front at all (funnily enough, »

Frank Grillo and The Raid's Iko Uwais joins Skyline spin-off

9 November 2014 10:28 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The new Skyline film, Beyond Skyline, has signed up the stars of The Raid, plus The Purge: Anarchy's Frank Grillo...

Made for a modest $20m or so, 2010's Skyline ended up looking more impressive that the far more expensive Battle: L.A. in that year's face off between two alien invasion movies. A solid hit, there had been talk of a sequel to Skyline for some time, but as it turns out, we're getting a spin-off instead.

Entitled Beyond Skyline, the new film is to be written and directed by Liam O'Donnell. Colin and Greg Strause, the special effects wizards who helmed the first movie, are on board to produce.

And Beyond Skyline has now made some interesting casting signings. Namely, Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian, the two stars of The Raid. Furthermore, the pair will not only star in the movie, but they will also be choreographing the fights in it as well. »

PopWatch Confessional: The embarrassing song that made you cry

Sunday marks the return of HBO's The Newsroom, a series that isn't exactly known for being subtle—especially in its first season, which featured a memorable scene set to Coldplay's "Fix You." Anvilicious? Oh yeah. Emotionally manipulative? You betcha. Surprisingly effective all the same? Unfortunately, yes, according to EW.com's Lanford Beard. Which is how we came upon this week's PopWatch Confessional question: What's the song that's had a surprising, embarrassing emotional effect on you?

Joel Edgerton Talks Thriller ‘Felony,’ ‘Exodus,’ Trials of Shooting ‘Jane Got a Gun’

18 October 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Joel Edgerton has one piece of advice to aspiring actors, it’s this: always be sure to check your inbox.

“I found an email the other day from my old agent in London, that I’d just sort of discarded because I was too busy at the time,” Edgerton recalls on a recent afternoon in New York, looking a tad professorial in full-rimmed glasses and beard. “It was this screenplay for a film by a first-time filmmaker that, if I was interested, I should consider auditioning for.” As it turned out, the filmmaker was Steve McQueen and the movie was “Hunger.”

Well, you win some and you lose some in this business, and lately Edgerton has been chalking up the wins. After back-to-back breakout performances in the Oscar-nominated “Animal Kingdom” (2010) and “Warrior” (2011), the 40-year-old Australian actor and screenwriter has been working nonstop in Hollywood, from his Navy Seal commander »

Joel Edgerton Wants Uncle Owen to Play a Big Role in Obi Wan Spin-Off(s)

9 October 2014 7:59 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Uncle Owen might not have been a huge part of the Star Wars universe, but he had an important role in Luke’s pre-Jedi life, in the space between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.  Joel Edgerton, who played Owen Lars in the prequel films, thinks there’s a story to be told about Owen during those years. Will it be told in the proposed Obi Wan spin-off (or spin-offs)?

Owen Lars—better known as Luke Skywalker’s cantankerous Uncle Owen in A New Hope—is not one of the most popular Star Wars characters, and his total on-screen time during the three films he appeared in was probably less than 10 minutes. However, there is someone who wants to see a lot more of him, and that’s Joel Edgerton, who played a young Owen in Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith. Edgerton  thinks Owen »
