She would go on to star in “Crossroads.”

Like Spears, Justin competed on “Star Search” (as Justin Randall) but lost in his first head-to-head. He would become one of many stars to break out from Disney’s reboot of “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” (watch video).

Official Trailer for Horror Film 'City of Dead Men' Starring Diego Boneta

30 October 2016 6:48 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Welcome to the house of the Dead Men." Gravitas Ventures has debuted an official trailer for the horror thriller City of Dead Men, set mostly at an eerie psychiatric hospital in Colombia. The horror film stars Diego Boneta (from "Scream Queens" and Rock of Ages) as an American tourist who ends up in the town of Medellin in Colombia, befriending a local woman (played by Maria Mesa) who introduces him to "group of young misfits" that call themselves the "Dead Men". The leader of the group is Jacob, played by Jackson Rathbone, a mysterious figure who brings the newcomer to their home at an abandon psychiatric hospital for children on the outskirts of the city. Of course, things get weird and he starts to feel the presence of the kids. It's hard to tell what's going on in this, and it seems like it may be a big mess, but give it a shot anyway. »

Tom Cruise: A 30-Year Appreciation of the Hollywood Top Gun

25 October 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

More so than ever it seems, we've become increasingly obsessed with acknowledging the anniversaries of beloved movies, TV shows and music. Not that there's anything wrong with celebrating our pop culture past, mind you. In fact, for someone as nostalgic as myself, I completely embrace it. Which brings me to a little milestone of my own. This one, though, doesn't simply focus on a particular piece of celluloid, but instead, revolves around a certain actor whose work has been an enduring presence throughout my movie-going life.

For the last 30 years, not only have I sat and watched every single Tom Cruise film that has come out since 1986, I have done so in an actual, honest-to-goodness movie theater. That's a total of 33 silver screen experiences (34 if you count his Austin Powers in Goldmember cameo), including the latest, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Yeah, you might say I'm a fan.

However, prior to the start of this streak -- and »

Duncan Jones’ Long-Promised ‘Mute’ Adds Justin Theroux As a ‘Rogue Villain’

13 October 2016 7:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the years following his 2008 debut film “Moon,” director Duncan Jones has tried to get its spiritual sequel “Mute” off the ground. The film follows mute bartender Leo Beiler working in a futuristic Berlin in order to find the love of his life who has disappeared. As Leo’s search draws him deep into the city’s underworld, an odd pair of rogue American surgeons keep recurring and Leo has to figure out if they’re friends or enemies. Though Alexander Skarsgård and Paul Rudd have already joined the cast as Beiler and one of the Americans respectively, Variety reports that actor Justin Theroux has now rounded out the main trio, playing the other American surgeon.

Not Only Is the Enchanted Sequel Happening, It Sounds Fantastic

7 October 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Shout it from the rooftops: the Enchanted sequel is coming together in a major way! The 2007 original introduced Giselle, a textbook princess who finds herself thrust into the real world away from the singing birds of her home, the cartoon kingdom of Andalasia. The second film, titled Disenchanted, has been in the works since 2010, but now there's a script (written by David Stem and David Weiss), a director, and a tentative date to begin shooting. Here's everything we know so far; check back for more later! The Cast According to The Hollywood Reporter, star Amy Adams is "expected" to return. No word yet on James Marsden, Patrick Dempsey, or Susan Sarandon. The Plot The new film will be set a decade after the events of the original. Giselle, now questioning her "happily ever after," accidentally triggers a series of events that affect both the real world and the animated residents of Andalasia. »

Newswire: Enchanted sequel wakes from its slumber, finds new director

7 October 2016 6:14 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

2007’s Enchanted was a critical and box-office hit, so it’s surprising that additional chapters in the fairy tale haven’t been churned out, especially since “happily ever after” isn’t a hard and fast rule anymore. And yet, nearly 10 years have passed since Amy Adams chirped her way into Patrick Dempsey’s and our hearts. A sequel was announced back in 2014, which was to be written by The SmurfsJ. David Stem and David N. Weiss, though it’s languished in pre-production.

But now it looks like someone’s said the magic words to reinvigorate the project, as Empire Magazine reports that Rock Of Ages director Adam Shankman will helm the Enchanted follow-up. Shankman’s filmography includes 2007’s Hairspray, as well as such contemporary fairy tales as The Wedding Planner (there’s a coveted shoe involved in their meet-cute), Bringing Down The House (in which ...

Hairspray director Adam Shankman to helm Disney’s Enchanted 2, shooting begins next summer

7 October 2016 3:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been over two years since the last major update regarding the status of Enchanted 2, the potential sequel to 2007’s Amy Adams-led fantasy musical Enchanted, but reportedly the project is far from dead. According to a recent report from THR, after being in development for years, Disney is finally taking big steps forward with the sequel and moving fast.

Adam Shankman, whose work on such films as Hairspray and Rock of Ages makes him no stranger to characters spontaneously breaking out into song and dance, is in negotiations to direct the sequel. Additionally, the film’s official title is now Disenchanted and will likely feature the return of Adams as Princess Giselle.

Whether or not other cast members, including Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden and Timothy Spall, will reprise their roles from the original is still unknown, but it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise if »

‘Enchanted’ sequel ‘Disenchanted’ finds a director, eyes summer 2017 production start

6 October 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It looks like Disney will indeed give us another movie poking fun at itself all the while celebrating its animated films à la the sly parody of The Princess Bride. Things are finally moving forward on the sequel to 2007’s Enchanted. Adam Shankman is in negotiations to direct the sequel, called Disenchanted, and Amy Adams is expected to return, The Hollywood Reporter posted today. Disney hopes to start production in summer 2017. I’m disappointed to see Anne Fletcher and her comedy chops apparently off the project (Fletcher, who helmed Ryan Reynolds/Sandra Bullock rom-com The Proposal, was previously attached to direct the Enchanted sequel when it was in development back in 2010). But if Shankman delivers a movie that’s as fun and packed with dazzling musical numbers as his Hairspray, then we should be in for a solid sequel. His other credits include the Rock of Ages movie, A Walk to Remember, »

Justin Theroux talks his career and upcoming film The Girl On The Train

Justin Theroux talks his career and upcoming film The Girl On The TrainJustin Theroux talks his career and upcoming film The Girl On The TrainBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine10/6/2016 2:15:00 Pm

The Girl on the Train is the most popular, female-driven mystery novel since Gone Girl. So it was inevitable that Paula Hawkins’ 2015 debut novel would be turned into a film, and it was, rather quickly.

Directed by Tate Taylor, who served similar duty on another popular book turned film, The Help, the movie version changes a few things from the print product. But it’s still the tale of troubled, alcoholic, divorcee Rachel, who’s obsessed with her ex’s new wife Anna and weirdly fixated on one of the couple’s beautiful neighbours, Megan.

There are men in the story, too. Perhaps most prominent is Rachel’s former husband Tom, played by Jennifer Aniston’s husband, the versatile actor-writer-artist Justin Theroux. »

Enchanted 2 Brings Back Amy Adams, Gets Hairspray Director

6 October 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly nine years after it first hit theaters, Disney's follow-up to Enchanted, titled Disenchaned, has finally found its director. Hairspray and Rock of Ages director Adam Shankman is in talks to direct the Enchanted sequel, which the studio has been developing since 2010. Original Enchaned star Amy Adams is expected to reprise her role as princess Giselle. Although it isn't known if James Marsden or any of the other original cast members will be back for Enchanted 2.

The original Enchanted centered on Amy Adams' Giselle, who is set to marry her Prince Charming (James Marsden) before she is taken from her animated fantasy world and thrust into our real world in New York City. There she meets a lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) who is about to marry a woman (Idina Menzel) who is completely wrong for him. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Disenchanted will take place 10 years after the original movie, »

Before there were live-action remakes of Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast and every other fairy tale in the Disney stable, there was Enchanted. The 2007 film was an affectionate sendup of Disney’s animated catalogue, plucking a stereotypical Disney cartoon princess played by Amy Adams and dropping her in the real world. The film was a huge hit, so […]

Taking a closer look at The Girl on the Train's Justin TherouxTaking a closer look at The Girl on the Train's Justin TherouxAdriana Floridia10/4/2016 10:40:00 Am

Justin Theroux is one of Hollywood's most interesting stars.

The writer/actor never became quite as famous as many of his peers, but he was always making very interesting choices and working with some of the best filmmakers in the business, namely David Lynch, who the actor frequently has collaborated with.

He recently shot to the forefront, mostly because of his very high profile relationship with actress Jennifer Aniston, and his current leading role on the under-seen and incredible HBO series "The Leftovers". Apart from this, Theroux has flown under the radar for a large part of his career, but we were one of the few paying attention.

This October, Theroux will co-star alongside Emily Blunt in the highly anticipated thriller The Girl on the Train, »

Disney Gears Up Live-Action 'The Nutcracker And The Four Realms' With Lasse Hallstrom Directing

4 March 2016 12:18 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hollywood has been trying to crack the, uh, nut, of a live-action take on the holiday classic "The Nutcracker" for a while now. For example, five years ago, Adam Shankman ("Hairspray," "Rock Of Ages") envisioned an "action-adventure" take on the story, but it didn't get off the ground. Now Disney, who has no shortage of live-action success of late ("Maleficent," "Cinderella"), is going to put their touch on the project. Read More: Lasse Halstrom Gives Bradley Cooper 'A Dog's Purspose' THR reports the studio has tapped Lasse Hallstrom to conjure up their "The Nutcracker." The film has a script by Ashleigh Powell, which apparently mixes elements of the ballet and E.T.A. Hoffmann's original story, "The Nutcracker and The Mouse King," for what is now titled "The Nutcracker And The Four Realms." That title seems to suggest there's a bit of blockbuster sauce being thrown on this story, which »
