Interview: Ambyr Childers for Vices

9 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Actress Ambyr Childers is quickly making a name for herself in different genres on television and in movies. Since taking her first job in the BBC comedy series S Club 7 in L.A., she's moved on to bigger opportunities like a role in the popular long-running American soap All My Children and supporting characters in The Master, Gangster Squad, 2 Guns, and several others. With Vice, Childers re-enters the world of science fiction she first dabbled with in the award-winning 2011 independent film Love.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Ms. Childers about her work on Vice. She shared her experiences working with Bruce Willis and tells readers what to expect from the movie. Childers also expands on her role of Kelly the "Artificial" and takes us behind the scenes of the making of the film.  

How did you get involved in Vice?

Kelly, my character, pulls a machine gun on Bruce Willis! »

The Gunman movie review: the yawn identity

18 March 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A tired old piece of action junk that expects us to sympathize with a very bad man. We don’t. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Aww, is Sean Penn very sorry for having destabilized an entire African nation and bringing about the deaths of countless innocent people? Apparently. A few years back, as a private security contractor — the nice way we say “mercenary” these days — he assassinated the Minister of Mining for the Democratic Republic of Congo, which ignited a civil war. To atone for his crime, these days he brings clean water to Congolese villages, and his naughtiest misdeed is sneaking out of the Ngo compound against the advice of security to get in a little surfing before breakfast.

Now, though, someone who knows what he »

Miles Teller and Ruben Fleischer to team for The Life and Times of the Stopwatch Gang

12 March 2015 12:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Variety has revealed that Miles Teller (Insurgent, Fantastic Four) is set to star in The Life and Times of the Stopwatch Gang for director Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad).

Universal Pictures is in the final stages of negotiating a deal to secure the rights to a Stopwatch Gang article published by Atavist and written by Josh Dean, which “profiles the bank robbers dubbed ‘the Stopwatch Gang’ because of how quickly they pulled off their heists. Although they never once fired a shot, the group stole millions and became the most feared and pursued bank robbers of the 1980s.”

Fleischer and Teller are both set to produce the film alongside Scott Stuber, producer behind such films as Ted 2 and the now-filming Matthew McConaughey-starrer Free State of Jones.

Miles Teller To Star In The Life and Times of the Stopwatch Gang

11 March 2015 10:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal Pictures is hitting up the online newsstands for inspiration, as the studio is currently brokering a deal to secure the rights for Josh Dean’s article The Life and Times of the Stopwatch Gang, with Miles Teller in the crosshairs to star. Ruben Fleischer (Gangster Squad, Zombieland) is set to direct and Scott Stuber (Ted 2, The Free State Of Jones) will produce alongside Teller.

The Whiplash actor is expected to tackle one of the lead roles, in a story about a group of Canadian criminals who successfully committed a number of bank robberies in the 1980s. The twist in the tale? None of the four masterminds ever fired a weapon, which is a remarkable feat since they are credited with shaking down approximately 100 U.S. financial institutions for around $10 million.

The Life and Times of the Stopwatch Gang originally appeared in The Atavist, an online magazine hub that »

Miles Teller, Ruben Fleischer Team on ‘Life and Times of the Stopwatch Gang’

10 March 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following a heated bidding war, Universal Pictures is in final negotiations to acquire the rights to the recently published Atavist article “The Life and Times of the Stopwatch Gang,” with Miles Teller attached to star and Ruben Fleischer on board to direct.

The article profiles the bank robbers dubbed “the Stopwatch Gang” because of how quickly they pulled off their heists. Although they never once fired a shot, the group stole millions and became the most feared and pursued bank robbers of the 1980s. Penned by Outside correspondent Josh Dean, the article has the feel of cops-and-robber pics like “The Town,” “Point Break” and “Heat.”

Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark will produce through Stuber’s Bluegrass Films banner. Fleischer and Teller will also produce. Beau Bauman will oversee production on behalf of Bluegrass Films.

The article was taken out last week, with offers coming in on Friday and through the weekend. »

'The Gunman': Film Review

6 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Taking the lead protagonist role for a change instead of playing the villain (as in Gangster Squad) or a peripheral enigma (see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty or The Tree of Life), Sean Penn stars as a reformed hitman seeking redemption in the trite action film The Gunman. Taken's Pierre Morel may be in the director's chair but Penn has credits as both a co-screenwriter and producer, and ultimately this feels like a vanity project designed to do for Penn's bankability, Africa, Spain and mercenaries what the Taken franchise did for Liam Neeson, Paris and Albanian gangsters. Ripe, borderline hammy

Chris Morgan provides Legend of Conan update, Will Beall rewriting the script

6 February 2015 3:46 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Arnold Schwarzenegger set to return to his signature role as the T-800 this summer in Terminator: Genysis, development continues on a sequel to another of his past glories in Legend of Conan. Speaking to Empire, producer Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious) has provided an update on the project, revealing that Will Beall (Gangster Squad) has penned a new draft of the script.

“I’m super excited! And Arnold is super excited too. It’s the perfect movie for him, because it plays into his own journey. Andrea Berloff [Straight Outta Compton] did a draft [of the script] and then we had Will Beall step on. I approached him early on in the process, but at the time he was unavailable and couldn’t do it. But then a couple of weeks after he passed on the project I got this package from him in the mail, and I opened it and it was a Conan sword, »

Chris Morgan Updates On Legend Of Conan

6 February 2015 5:54 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With all eyes currently on Terminator: Genisys as Arnold Schwarzenegger's most imminent revisit of former glories, there's been less word lately on the also developing Legend Of Conan. Empire recently had cause to speak to producer Chris Morgan, however, so we took the opportunity to grab an update. "I'm super excited!" he tells us. "And Arnold is super excited too. It's the perfect movie for him, because it plays into his own journey."Perhaps the most significant development since last we heard anything is the arrival of a new screenwriter. Vaguely rumoured a while ago to be on a shortlist of possible wordsmiths, Morgan confirms that the latest draft of the script is by Will Beall (Gangster Squad)."Andrea Berloff [Straight Outta Compton] did a draft," Morgan reminds us, "and then we had Will step on. I approached him early on in the process, but at the time he was unavailable and couldn’t do it. »

[Youtube "TeONP37qsSo"] Are you prepared to hear Ryan Gosling's Australian accent? The Gangster Squad actor, 34, made a surprise appearance during Thursday's Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (Aacta) when he videobombed Russell Crowe while the Kiwi actor was presenting an award via satellite. "Ladies and gentlemen, you might not recognize him with his clothes on - [this is] Ryan Gosling," Crowe joked after being "interrupted" by the heartthrob. When Gosling tried to mock Crowe with a Down Under accent, he announced that he's an "honorary Australian." "Really, how's that?" Crowe asked. "I lived in New Zealand for, like, two years," Gosling deadpanned, »

Sean Penn's still an optimist when it comes to love! The actor covers the latest issue of Esquire UK magazine, where he opens up about his love Charlize Theron, his views of marriage and his relationship with his famous ex-wives Madonna and Robin Wright. The "Gangster squad" star says that he's surprised to find himself in love again, but sounds very happy to have found a partner. "Yeah, I’m surprised to be in love. Lot of reasons. I’m self-proclaimed bad at mathematics but I can do two plus two: 53 years old plus finally beginning to figure out why you haven’t been happy in a single relationship? It could seem too late. But to run into somebody now who you care about is a much more passionate, deeper, truer and – God! – a much happier feeling. It’s a lot more romantic and a lot more fulfilling to »
