Arnold Schwarzenegger Joins 'Kung Fury' Feature Film (Exclusive)

Arnold Schwarzenegger Joins 'Kung Fury' Feature Film (Exclusive)
In what sounds like a match made in '80s heaven, Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined the cast of Kung Fury, the feature-length follow-up to the cult 2015 short.

THR understands that the Terminator, Predator and Total Recall icon (and former California governor) will play the American president in David Sandberg's action-comedy, set to shoot in Europe and in the U.S. this summer. He joins fellow '80s hero David Hasselhoff and Oscar-nominated actor Michael Fassbender, who were announced earlier this week.

The original Kung Fury is a cheesy and comically Ott homage to '80s martial arts and police...

‘Here and Now’: The Case for Crazy, Bad TV Over Good But Boring Shows

‘Here and Now’: The Case for Crazy, Bad TV Over Good But Boring Shows
“Here and Now” dropped a jam-packed pilot Sunday night, the best episode of its first four. Actually, it’s the only good episode of the first four, and it’s not even good enough to make the rest of the series worth recommending. But it is different. Alan Ball’s HBO series is unlike most family dramas, supernatural dramas, or just dramas in general, and in a landscape of nearly 500 scripted original series, that’s something to savor.

But most people won’t. Most people will flip over to the Olympics or turn on Netflix and see what’s newly available to binge. It feels like “Here and Now’s” time has already come and gone, be it due to the rough reviews or just an overall lack of buzz. In 2018, it’s not good enough to be different; a new show has to be good, too. Actually, shows that

“You Have to Make Money. It’s a Business”: Jesse V. Johnson on Accident Man, Scott Adkins and the Logistics of Fast Dtv Shoots

For over 15 years, Jesse V. Johnson has been a reliable craftsman of action movies for the wildly unreliable Dtv market. Born in England, he moved to Hollywood to work as a stunt performer in the 1990s, working on everything from Total Recall (1990) to The Thin Red Line (1999). He has bounced back and forth between stunt work and Dtv directing ever since — whatever it took to pay the bills in an unpredictable career. One predictable thing over the last year has been the presence of Scott Adkins as his leading man. Adkins may not have the name […]

Fast & Furious costume designer signs on for Captain Marvel

According to a report from a report by Omega Underground, costume designer Sanja Milkovic Hays has signed on for 2019’s 90-set Captain Marvel movie.

With sci-fi franchises like Star Trek: Beyond, Total Recall and Battle Los Angeles, as well as the Fast & Furious franchise and even a Marvel entry with Blade, Hays’ past work speaks for itself. Perhaps Sanja is the perfect eye to bring life to the classic comics design. Of course, her work will also have to include not only the titular character’s famous look, but also costuming for a younger, two-eyed Nick Fury, the organisation of S.H.I.E.L.D. and for the first time ever, the intergalactic species of the Skrulls.

Presumably Hays was chosen for her experience in sci-fi in particular, as Captain Marvel is said to be set primarily in outer space requiring a level of unique imagination. The film is

Emmy-Nominated Cinematographers Reflect on How TV Has Helped Their Craft Evolve

Emmy-Nominated Cinematographers Reflect on How TV Has Helped Their Craft Evolve
At the dawn of television, feature cinematographers were leery of becoming involved in the new medium, which many associated with diminished prestige. TV’s shortcomings in comparison with the glories of the silver screen included severe time constraints, tight budgets and the vagaries of network distribution.

Now, with the advent of what many are calling TV’s golden age, the segregation between film and TV cinematography is a thing of the past. This year’s Emmy-nominated DPs have many reasons for embracing the small screen. (The four who were contacted for this story spoke before the Dp winners were announced at the Creative Arts Emmys.)

Two-time Oscar-winning cinematographer John Toll, previously known almost exclusively for his cinema work, came onto Netflix’s “Sense8” after making two features (“Cloud Atlas” and “Jupiter Ascending”) with its creators, Lana and Lilly Wachowski.

He says his decision to shoot for television on the project was a natural extension of that working

Kate Beckinsale Plays ‘Marry, Shag, Kill’ With Co-Stars Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, Colin Farrell

Kate Beckinsale Plays ‘Marry, Shag, Kill’ With Co-Stars Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, Colin Farrell
Kate Beckinsale is an open book! The 44-year-old actress played “Plead the Fifth” on Thursday night’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen and answered two and a half out of the three questions.

First, host Cohen asked Beckinsale to play “Marry, Shag, Kill” with her Pearl Harbor co-stars, Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett, as well as her Total Recall co-star, Colin Farrell.

“That’s quite hard!” she exclaimed. “I’d probably have to shag Colin because I’ve sort of semi-done it onscreen so I feel like it would count. I’d marry Ben, and I’d kill Josh.”

When the audience gasped at her quick response, Beckinsale looked surprised, saying, “Shocking answer!”

Cohen then asked if the rumors were true that she and her Vacancy co-star, Luke Wilson, had some tension because he was allegedly “hungover, late to set

Matt Reeves Might Bring Planet of The Apes Screenwriter On Board The Batman

Seeing as Matt Reeves will be directing Warner Bros.’ upcoming Dark Knight solo film The Batman, fans have generally assumed that he would also be providing the script for the movie. This looked even more sure when Reeves confirmed that he’s disregarding the previous screenplay written by Ben Affleck, Geoff Johns and Chris Terrio – back when Affleck was still attached to direct – and will be starting from scratch. Still, a look at Reeves’ resume reveals that he’s only co-written three scripts in his career, which had people concerned.

Thankfully, it looks like there’s nothing to worry about, as Splash Report is claiming that “sources” have informed them that Reeves will be bringing on board Mark Bomback to complete the screenplay for The Batman. If true, this choice makes a lot of sense.

After all, the pair have previously worked together on both Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Flatliners Remake Trailer Hits The Internet

Coming Soon brings us word that Sony Pictures has released the poster, and trailer, to the new movie Flatliners, the remake of the 1990 Joel Shumacher film which starred Julia Roberts and Keifer Sutherland. The remake stars Ellen Page and Diego Luna. The story centers around five college students who perform a dangerous experiment that tries to prove there is life after death. As each has a unique near death experience, they deal with the sins of their past while also dealing with the consequences of playing with the afterlife.

I am one of the few folks who tries to give remakes a chance. The original Flatliners movie wasn't bad at all. It wasn't a classic of film history, but the premise for the movie was a unique idea. What would happen if people could find a way to prove that there is life after death? What would be the consequences of their actions?

Sin City TV show in the works

Chris Longo Jun 1, 2017

Frank Miller is shopping Sin City to TV networks. They're lining up for it, apparently...

Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez turned Miller’s graphic novel Sin City into stylish noir for the silver screen over a decade ago, but would a television series be A Show To Kill For?

Networks hungry for old IP seem to think so. Deadline reports that suitors are lining up for a Sin City television adaptation, one that would introduce new characters in that universe.

No network is officially on board yet, but it can only be a matter of time. It's easy to imagine this being a big blockbuster of a show.

The project has picked up steam now that it has Bob and Harvey Weinstein, Len Wiseman (Total Recall), and The Walking Dead's Glen Mazzara behind it.

Mazzura, whose credits also include The Shield and The Omen, is set to write.

Kirsten Dunst and Sofia Coppola on Hollywood Sexism, Their Feminist ‘Beguiled’ Remake

Kirsten Dunst and Sofia Coppola on Hollywood Sexism, Their Feminist ‘Beguiled’ Remake
Sofia Coppola met her muse Kirsten Dunst in 1998. The actress was just 16 at the time, and the 27-year-old daughter of Francis Ford Coppola was about to make her directorial debut with “The Virgin Suicides,” based on a novel that she loved. Dunst was so innocent, she brought her mom along to chaperone their initial conversation. “I was a little nervous,” she says. “It was my first adult role!”

So much of Hollywood is filtered through the male gaze. But Coppola, who tells stories from the perspectives of her heroines, immediately put Dunst at ease. “She was always a good influence on me as a young woman,” Dunst says, recalling a compliment that Coppola once paid her that she never forgot. “She said to me, ‘I love your teeth; don’t ever fix your teeth.’ I remember doing a ‘Spider-Man’ movie later, and one of the producers was like, ‘I need

From Angelina Jolie to Daisy Ridley, Here’s the Top 14 Female Action Stars Working Today

Way back in 1979, Ridley Scott’s “Alien” brought us our first genuine female action hero in Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley. Despite the three sequels that followed, Ripley proved to be something of an outlier. Until fairly recently, a woman could kill someone in a movie only if she faced brutal punishment afterward, as in Scott’s “Thelma and Louise,” or in the inevitable fates of Bond girls: They could dole out lethal action, but rarely survived.

Today, ass-kicking women are no longer an anomaly or subject to automatic retribution. This weekend, we watched Scarlett Johansson lay waste to her enemies (although not the box office) in “Ghost in the Shell,” following a path blazed by the likes of Linda Hamilton (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”), Uma Thurman (“Kill Bill”), and Michelle Yeoh (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”). These roles may strike a blow for equality and diversity, but what these women — and
